What video card do you have?? That's probably the problem.


I am currently dual booting Windows XP Professional and Vista Ultimate. Both are excellent, although I still primarily use XP.

I have Ubuntu installed on a Virtual Machine under XP for when I need Linux. I think it's probably the best Linux OS. I'm also thinking of installing OS X as a VM.

Well i am currently useing XP home BUT it is the first version that came out and my computer and OS are not compatable with the SP2 and all so i am stuck wit XP Home version 1. Also how fast is vista i have it but i dont really no if i should install it on my new computer(soon be getting). And does the 32bit Vista have compatablitly issues or is it just 64 bit Vista. If it is slow i might have to buy WinPro.

What are your specs?? No harm in dual booting.

Anyway, how can your computer not be compatible with SP2...

From the comps in my sig.
Gaming Rig - Triple Boot - XP Pro, Vista Business, Ubuntu 7.04 x86-64
Sig is a little outdated. Now has two 320gb drives, one for storage and the other has the os's on it.
Laptop - XP Home
Media Center - Dual boot - XP Home and Sabyon Linux (using the media center on there cuz the ui looks cool, still has some bugs that need fixing though so I have xp on there in case it pisses me off and I wanna watch a movie.)
