My Grandson has recently purchased an ASPIRE SA90: With Basic Vista Home on Board preinstalled software. Although it had a Pentium 3000 processor to say it drags it feet was an underestimate.
We decided to install windows XP Home addition with the latest patch Etc. there was a fast improvement immediately: unfortunately the on board Codec will not pick up sound at all? Also the on board Ethernet card will not pick up a driver also.
Looking inside the case there appears to be two PCI slots! So I would be able to fit a sound card and PCI Ethernet card as a last option?
But surly there must be a solution to energising them with having to purchase further software.
