Not vista compatible
Posted 04 December 2008 - 03:16 AM
I just installed windows xp pro on my laptop Packard Bell Easy Note Sj51 and suddenly my network driver stops working.
After hours of searching I am not able to find a compatible driver for my network card.
After calling Packard Bell support, I am told that they don't know if any of these drivers are ever made for xp (only vista compatible).
Can some kind people please help me with this? I also posted a question on the nVision homepage, and the only thing I got from this, was that they told me that they made drivers espescially for each computer-manufacturer, and then reffered me to this forum.
Is the nVidia LAN 6565 only vista compatible, and not XP?
Thank you for any answers.
