Even with Vista you have many drivers to find and install. Starting at http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/ins1520/ I see this uses the Mobile Intel Express (GM 965 or PM 965).
Here's the most likely of the ten drivers that could matter -> (32 bit)
have a dell 1520 laptop with windows vista home basic on it. It is the oem version.
This is very strange but when I attempt any of the following:
*Boot Windows Normally
The little Green Loading bar (vista) that says windows is loading just hangs until I push the power button fast without holding it down.
When I push Power for like .5 seconds it loads fine.
ALSO, when I first get back into windows the mouse does not move until i hold the power button .5seconds again.
This is getting very annoying.
I have done the following. (I have no warranty).
*Write zeros to drive
*reinstall all drivers
*slipstream drivers into new DVD using vlite
*checked hard disk for errors (o found, using GWSCAN)
Please give me any info as to what this may be.
Thanks SO much.
