Re: vista got reduced hardware ability?
I do not think it strange at all that something designed for Windows XP may
not work in Vista. A lot of hardware will have to be replaced if the
manufacturer didn't allow for firmware updates and driver updates. Even the
poorly coded software they supply with their deficient hardware may not work
It happens whenever a new O/S is introduced.
