Driver Issues with OS?
I have an old Hitachi Visionbook Pro 7775. It has 64mb ram (upgraded from original 32mb), a CDROM drive, 3GB hard drive, a 2mb Asiliant Video Card, and a 266Mghz Pentium II processor. The problem though, is with the touchpad. The notebooks native OS is Windows 95/98, but when I install those the pointer on the screen moves so skippy and choppy. I even tried Windows2000 and the same thing happened. But when I install WindowsXP, the pointer moves perfect and smooth. So that right there proves it isn't the touchpad itself that is the problem, but probably something with a driver that XP has that the other OS's don't. I would stay with XP, but since I barely meet the requirements it runs laggy as hell and takes up about half of my hard drive space. I don't want this computer to be top notch and run lots of programs other than Internet Explorer, Office, AIM, and the occasional DOS game :-). Think there is just a problem with the mouse driver? I tried updating it it just comes up as up to date and as a Standard PS/2 Mouse. It really is a ALPS Glidepoint Touchpad but why would XP work and the native OS not?
