  timerep 12:45 31 Oct 2009

Hi guys,installed windows 7 on this laptop that seems to fit the spec requirements, 1.7 ghz cpu with 512 mb of ram (I will be increasing the ram to 1 gig shortly) so on the face of it seems ok. some odd thigs have happend though,the aero stuff wont work as the graphics card is 32 mb trident 2100 some drivers are not installed, the microsoft update sorts most of that out but the sd card reader shows as a base system in the device manager a driver from toshiba for xp goes in but when you insert a sd card the unit wont operate saying there are unavailable resorces so its switched off.if you try windows vista,that it will run at a desparate stuggle the sd card appears in the device manager no probs, is there any way around this as im sort of caught between vista and 7 for funtionallity which would be best any advice would be helpful.
