Default May not be posting temporarily

I just bought a new computer system using Windows Vista. Right now nothing works. My scanner, my two printers, Photoshop CS2 Software, Nikon Capture 4 Software, Picture Project Software, Noiseware Software and other softwares that relates to my cameras. I cannot process my photos.

For those who will change computers better think twice before purchasing the Vista OS. This OS has no backward compatibility with softwares and hardwares. Unless you want to buy new softwares and hardwares to go with your new system.

Remove Vista and reinstall XP.
Good luck

Thank you for your help. I will definitely use it temporarily till I get my new computer and softwares set-up. At least I got my big printer working but the old small one that connects to the CPU with serial port , will not work anymore.

Hi, Charles. I have my old computer although it is not hooked on. Just in case things do not work out fine, I will use the old one. Thank you!

Funny I just got a Dell with Vista on and everything works fine. Did you download the updates for your older programs?

anyway guys, you better plan a migration to vista, microsoft will discontinue XP on June this year,

that product is about to be phased off...

buy a new hard disk, the corresponding license and make a partition,

and be get used to it,

it will require more hardware, memory usage is intense, the desktop new features require it
