Not Compatible With Vista?


adoherty

Question

I bought this product because it was compatible with Vista, but it's being blocked by my computer because it isn't? Every time I try using it, it craps out on me. Most recently, while trying to use Videowave, it froze, my screen went black, it beeped, came back, beeped, blanked out again, and repeated until I forced a reboot.

I'm running Vista on an HP Media PC (m7760n). It's supposed to be designed for this work--what's going on here? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

Thank you!

 

I got rid of that thing. I'm not sure where to find my latest video drivers? I thought I did get them, but it told me they weren't validated for my computer? I seem to be having this problem (http://www.intel.com/support/graphics/sb/cs-025607.htm) but the solution failed.

 

I bought this PC with Vista already installed. Had it had XP I would have gotten that :glare:

 

 

Most of us here will advise you to remove Drag to Disc - that's part of the problem with Vista (it also has the reliability of a snowflake in Death Valley for backup purposes)

 

Also - check that you have the latest video drivers and DirectX installed on your computer.

 

Was Vista a clean installation btw or did you 'upgrade' XP?

The link you gave for the driver info refetrs to graphics problems on World of Warcraft :lol:

 

What I'm wondering is if you have an onboard graphics chipset - they usually won't work properly but what you could try is to force EMC9 into software rendering instead of hardware.

 

What is the actual graphics card/chipset number? Also, how much memory does it have?
