it's been on my mind for ages now but never done anything about it well untill now but thats only because of the great advice you get on this site lol

i have a TOSHIBA L30-134 LP which i bought with xp already installed but its windows vista compable.

How easy would it be to put vista on it??

would i have to find new drivers E.G sound , graphic , touchpad etc.

You will rue the day. Nothing works with it

Plus you will need all Vista Drivers for your Computer Hardware. Like Motherboard Sound and Graphics. You may even need a new Graphics card

If it is windows vista capable, then you chould just be able to install it without the need for aditional drivers, I have been using vista now since it was being beta tested, and I think its great, you hear alot of complaints about it, but whenever I use a computer running xp(even one with higher spec) evrything seems slow, and awkward compared to vista, I think its a well thought out operating system.
