  1. I've recently replaced (courtesy of a necessary insurance claim) my laptop. The new model is great but has Microsoft Vista which is an 'upgrade' from my old XP system. Unfortunately the fcucker won't install my 'old' HP 6500 printer. I keep getting come crap about having to upgrade to XP come up in an error box. Do I need to replace my printer as well or is there a way around this?

  4. Yeah you will probabily need to upgrade the printer as there will not be ay vista drivers for te printer. Ty logging onto the printer manufacturers website to see if there are any vista drivers, if not PM me what type of printer you would like & i'll get you a price for one, as I run my own computer repair company
