Default Re: Upgrading my Emachine!

Like I said, I personally would not go back to XP. If you really want to go back you should be able to find all the appropriate drivers, but I would make sure before I took the plunge.

Download Advisor and run it to get a complete listing of your components. Then check the manufacturers' web sites to make sure that there are XP drivers available for everything. If not, search the web for them. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary as far as hardware earlier, but the specs listed were pretty basic.

Advisor will also give you a complete list of all your programs and license numbers, too. It would be a good idea to print it out for a record to refer back to later on.
