Downgrading to XP
Does anyone know how I might get my computer to "downgrade" to XP?
Windows Vista gives me the Blue Screen around three times a day on average
(!), whereas my old PC running on XP would crash only once a week.

Re: Downgrading to XP
Hi,

If the blue screens are being caused by a hardware issue, then downgrading
will not help. As to downgrade rights, you'd need to check with the system
manufacturer to see if they provide for this. If the system is under
warranty, then get it fixed as no system should blue screen, not three times
per day nor once per week.

Run a RAM test and also run the mfg's HD diagnosis first.

Even one crash / week on XP is not at all normal

I've had a half dozen crashes on 98SE, a couple on Win2K, and none on XP.

I guess that makes a blue screen about once every year and a half, and a
crash every other year.

I sense that someone is lacking in computer saavy... other than their
ability to recognize that VISTA is still a pile of bovine feces.
