Not all manufacturers have updated their drivers to work with Vista. Example, my Hp scanner 3570c, Mighty Fax and others
A friend has bought a new Gateway desktop bundle deal at Office Depot and wants me to help him get it set up.
- Hardware wise it is the newest stuff, and has 1 GB of RAM memory.
- The unit is loaded with Vista Home Premium
- His internet access until Saturday will be dial up. After Saturday he will be on Comcast broadband, but I've got to work Saturday so tonight (Thursday, 2/15) and tomorrow morning are my only times to help.
I've done my own hardware installs, firmware upgrades, networking, and other such stuff for years, and feel pretty comfortable fiddling with most desktops I sit down at. But Vista is the brand new, buggiest stuff on the market.
So what insights can any of you offer about the first boot up, and getting the thing set up and running for him?
Thanks in advance,
