I bought a HP Pavilion dv2620us Laptop recently, the laptop came with a preloaded Windows VISTA, Some how I did not find VISTA amusing from day one. I wanted to go back to my reliable windows XP, So went on to find out about drivers fro mXP. To my horror, HP did not provide drivers for Windows XP.
I went on finding the hardware specification for my model ie Sound card Name version..Graphics card details and finally was able to get all drivers for XP 🙂 . Now here comes the sad part. After installation the screen looks pathetic even with proper driver Display aint correct, it simply looks bleak. It looks very good on VISTA. Then Sound is good but non of short cut keys work in XP. Moreover even if i connect headphone jack speaker doesnt turnoff 🙁 .
Not a good XP experience.By the time I realised it is not going to pleasurable, I had gotten used to VISTA, after few pathces and updates VISTA doesnt give me blue screen errors/anything. So HP and Microsoft forced me into using Windows VISTA. A shrewd strategy on part of Microsoft(I hate it).
Im currently eagerly awaiting the arrival of Windows VISTA SP1.
