Cheers for that

I have however bit the bullet and bought windows 7 which is supposed to be a christmas present because my wife cant think of anything else to buy me (the cheap b****) . Interestingly enough after talking to a guy in my office he suggested looking out for Student Discounts so as i have 4 sproggs checked it out and managed to get win7 pro for £38.49 . What a deal and it arrived last week . Only prob is i have now had to buy an external hard drive but got a bargain on this as well (and its turned into another christmas present lol) . Really needed that anyway as i,ve had 2 hard drives in the last couple of years saying surrender and lost all my stuff .

Biggest headache is now installing 7 and to be honest i,m totally bricking it especially when i know i,ll be attempting it full of Santa,s fermented potatoes in 2 days time

If you're planning to upgrade that computer from Windows XP to Windows 7, have you confirmed that there are Windows 7 drivers for ALL of its devices?

You might want to edit and delete the (- - -) comment before your wife sees it and takes a bat to your computer. :eek:

I,ve done the windows upgrade advisor and everything seems ok apart from the ATI CCC which disappears when i check out the win 7 64 bit . Cant understand that one . I have xp 32 bit and am going for 7 64 bit just because i,m planning on adding more RAM and been told this is the better option . The windows advisor seemed ok with CCC on Win 7 32 bit for some reason but doesnt matter . I,ve had my Sapphaire HD4870 for 3 years now and dont want to oc my old darling


PS wife wont see this . She is lucky if she cant find the power button lol

Go to the Device Manager, then advise what's currently listed in these headings:

Display Adapters

IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers

Network Adapters

Sound Video And Game Controllers


-----------------------------------------------------------

If your computer is not a custom-built one and is a known factory brand one, advise what the brand name, model name, and model number of it is.
