1.)ok i have an old compaq 500 and a copy of vista lite. it only needs 256 ram to run smoothly without areo. but im not sure if it would install correctly. and once i get it installed where could i find the motherboard drivers? or would i need them.i have a oem xp disk that i can put on it to but i was just not sure if i needed a mb driver.
2.) when turning the Compaq on it sounds like a plane taking off but once it finishes starting up it is fine. it sounds like a fan could it be the power supply? i can not tell where it is coming from
