Downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Basic now I have missing drivers

Q: Downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Basic now I have missing drivers

So I downgraded from Vista to Xp home basic because I didn't like the way vista worked. Unfortunately something went wrong when I used my Xp boot disc and now I am missing the following devices:
Ethernet Controller
PCI Device
PCI Simple Communications Controller
SM Bus Controller
Video Controller (VGA Compatible)

Please help if you can, I have looked through countless forums and downloaded about 20 files already and I still haven't fixed anything.

Preferred Solution: Downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Basic now I have missing drivers

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Downgraded from Windows Vista to Windows XP Home Basic now I have missing drivers

First thing that needs to be clarified here, when you say "now I'm missing the following" what type of missing are we talking about here? Are the devices and such present inside your device manager and all that is missing here is their drivers? Or when you open up the device manager, all the above and stated hardware is gone? If this is a driver issue the fix or fixes could be relatively manageable. But if this is a case that nothing is there and indeed these devices aren't showing up with anything inside Windows, but you know they are there and still nothing, that might be a manageable thing to deal with, with the end result being perhaps a wipe of the disk and starting over from scratch. Maybe Windows didn't find these items when it was being installed for whatever reason or reasons. If you decide to install the O.S. again, I would first go into your computers BIOS and just with your own eye's, confirm the presence of these items, for if they are in BIOS and register fine, than they should translate over to Windows being able to find them as well. And while you are inside BIOS, doesn't hurt to make sure that nothing is switched off, just make sure all these items your talking about are activated or just active through BIOS and you should be fine.

I installed windows vista home basic again on my home but now it shows no drivers for ethernet controller,pci serial port,pci simple communications controller,video controller and standard vga graphics adapter. So I went to and downloaded the drivers on a flash and tried to use them but it's not working , I thought if I could get online with the computer I could update it and make it work, but ? Let me know what ya think and if you need any other info.

A:Drivers Missing After Upgrade to Windows Vista Home Premium

Solved by getting two drivers from ACER's web site. It wasn't obvious which ones I needed by the description in Device Manager but after Googling found several folks who had the same thing happen to them and also found which drivers were needed.

I have recently purchased a new Acer Aspire 5535 laptop. It has Windows Vista Home Premium (WVHP) installed.

The computer came with a number of programs that I am not interested in having on my system. In addition, I was not provided a restore disc. I do own a copy of Windows Vista Home Basic (WVHB).

I would like to keep WVHP as I appear to be eligible for an upgrade to Windows 7 . . . but I would like to reinstall to get rid of all these worthless programs. Can I use a WVHB disc with my new WVHP product key?

Could I install WVHB with the WVHB product key, then use the WVHP key supplied by Acer to upgrade?

Thanks for your time in answering my question. I hope it isn't unclear.



A:Windows Vista Home Premium Key Home Basic Discs

I believe that if you install with the Basic disc the process will offer you a choice
of versions. Choose Home Premium and complete the install. Activate with your
Acer's Vista Product Key.

Hey everyone, just registered ? this is my first posting.

My family just ordered a new computer from Dell recently (through a monthly payment deal with our ISP), and it's still in transit to be delivered. I just recently discovered that the OS is Windows Vista Home Basic, which apparently is non-upgradable to Windows 7. What a rip-off.

I just had some questions. What would be the best path for me to take to get Windows 7 installed on this computer? I would probably need to delete the Home Basic OS and do a clean install, right?

I'm thinking about contacting Dell and having this order canceled or refused and waiting until I can order a model with Windows 7 preinstalled, but I'm quite impatient so I'd be willing to do something that wouldn't create such a delay.

Damn, I didn't think any PCs were still being shipped with Home Basic! This sucks royally!

My wife's new machine came with Vista Home Basic. She has a Canon BJC-2000 printer , Black only cartridge. Home Basic comes with MS Works and the Word processing App is all she uses. Here is the weirdness which I hope someone can help explain.
1. As I was setting up the system I wrote a note and printed it. I was able to run the Maintenance items.
2. She wrote a letter and saved it in .wps Works default format. When we tried to print it an error message saying 'Mis-Matched Cartridge' keeps coming up. I have booted many times and the same message.
3. Today I took the letter she had written and saved it in .doc form. The darn thing printed from Works.

Over thanksgiving, i was called in to help my aunt's Thinkpad connect to the printer. She mentioned that she'd like windows 7 so i helped her get Windows Ultimate Steal using her .edu email address. It downloaded well, and we opened up the setup file. I was just leaving, so i told her to click upgrade when the prompt came. i received a call saying a dialog box popped up saying it could not upgrade from Vista Home basic, which she was apparantly running. Does anyone know of a solution or workaround to let her upgrade to Windows 7?

A:Windows Vista Home Basic

Which version of Win7 did she buy?

According to the upgrade matrix:

Vista Home Basic can be upgraded-in-place to Win7 Home Premium or Ultimate.

That only applies within the same addressing type: 32 bit can only be upgraded-in-place to 32 bit, 64 to 64.

An upgrade license can be used in other ways, but only with a custom (clean) install.

I just recently purchased a second dell computer. I was having problems installing windows xp sp2 on my old computer so i used the Vista CD that came with my new computer and installed it on my old one(I'm aware this may be illegal).

I've been reading up on this about a 30 day trial period, so my question is will their be a lockdown after 30 days on my old computer asking for a cd key? It never asked for one in the first place but i have a feeling it may. I just don't want to be caught off guard on this.

Also, if i end up having to purchase another OS im going to get Vista 64-Bit Premium and install it on my new computer. Would i have a problem using the CD-key from my new computer on the old one?

Can someone inform me if this is going to happen.

My aunt recently bought some upgrades for a pc we built it is a
athlon sempron 3400+
1 GB 4200 RAM
2x Sony DVD+-R Drives
We are trying to install Vista onto the SATA Hard Drive, however after the install it says system disk failure. Do we need to treat use raid drivers for the hard drive to boot?
also this error also occurred when we tried to install windows xp x32 on the same drive.
any help is appreciated.

A:Windows Vista System Builder Home Basic x64

For XP you'd almsot certainly need to load the SATA/RAID drivers, but Vista may have them built in. What motherboard do you have? Also just the boot order in the BIOS to make sure the SATA drive is in the boot order. Also since you have two PATA IDE drives there may be something wrong going there, if there are just spare drives then disconnect them for the install of Vista - but don't disconnect them if you are trying to do a multi-boot system with an operating system on one of those drives.

I am trying to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 ultimate RTM version but it doesn't complete the installation. It starts and when i click on the "Upgrade Version" it keeps doing a compatibility check and throws out an htm report (i can't see anything on the report) and ultimately stops the installation.
I didn't choose to do custom install (clean) since windows compatability advisor shows i should be able to upgrade from 32 bit vista home basic to 32 bit windows 7 ultimate.
Anybody saw this? Any suggestions/recommendations?

I'm having trouble, tho. When I try to dl any of the programs, and save them, the dl box disappears. I can't them anyway, so I'm assuming the DL didn't work. I didn't really care to get Vista, but it came preinstalled on this laptop. Any advice or suggestions??

A:[SOLVED] Windows Vista Home basic BSOD

You have to change the BIOS firing order to make the DVD drive 1st in line.

Try F2 or F10 or F12 during boot-up. One should get you in the BIOS screen. Then change the boot order to DVD drive 1st; hard drive 2nd.

The BIOS screen looks similar to this -

I have been having a lot of problems with my computer with Windows Vista Home Basic. First, I had a virus called Vista Security 2012. I had this all cleaned up by microsft. Next, after Microsoft cleaned out the virus the computer has sat at the Dell startup screen for 4-5 minutes now it does this everytime it boots up. Next, after log in and everything all the icons are all big and some icons even move around after boot up. Last, right after log in I get a Windows Defender error the error is: Application failed to initalize: 0x80070006. The handle is invalid. This is a family members computer. They said they shut down sometimes by holding down the power button. I think that is a possible part of the problem. I now have the computer at my home.

Please help,

Hello everyone,
recently I wiped vista off my desktop and replaced it with xp. I've been collecting all the drivers manually and I'm have trouble finding the last few.
Under other devices in my device manager i have:
PCI device
Universal Serial Bus Controller
and an unknown device
I'm have no idea where to look for the last ones and to top it off my sound is completely missing however i have installed a realtek driver for it
my computer is an hp pavillion a6600f with all factory hardware.
If you can help in any way please do. And if you need more information please let me know how to obtain it.

I also know i should have gotten the drivers before i downgraded it was a lapse in judgement and I am paying the price. Thanks for you help in advance.

I have this problem with my Gateway T5056 desktop which had originally windows XP media center edition 2005 in it. I planned to upgrade it to vista home basic. So I checked with windows vista upgrade advisor and everything was good to go.
Every thing went well, all devices are working fine. But the only problem I am facing here is during startup. After passing BIOS screen its reaching at regular Microsoft Vista green bar moving and its not going anywhere after that. Sometimes it works okay but most of the time I have to forced shutdown it and select Last good known configuration and sometimes it worked from there.
Just want to mention here i reformatted this hard drive and its brand new vista installation. i tried resetting BIOS to default but did't help either.
Have anybody else got this problem too after upgrading to vista? Please suggest ? If you have any other question please feel free to ask ..

I have a Windows Vista Home Basic, It was taken apart by my son who is obsessed about computers, And he did not take it apart to be fully ruined, all he did is take out 1 thing of memory out of 4 there is, and the hard drive he broke the data slot, and I am using a different vista hard drive to boot it up. And it only show the black screen with the dell startup and show bios under it in a sentence, and it says F2 for boot set up, and F12 for something else, I forget. And the thing wont let me hook up a keyboard, it will only give it power for 10th of a second. if you can help, please help.

A:Need drivers for friend's laptop (downgraded from Windows 10)

The computer was designed for Windows 10 so it is entirely possible some of the drivers you want are not available for Windows 7.
Right click each device in Device Manager. Select Properties. Under the Details tab select Hardware IDs in the dropdown box. Look at the first line. Copy and paste that line into a Google search or you can go to and look up the Vendor and Device ID numbers to see what if any drivers are available.
Your USB drivers are probably for USB 3.0. USB 3.0 drivers are not native to Windows 7.

I do not know why System Restore in my Windows Vista Home Basic system is not functioning properly. This means that I can not use System Restore because it is not working. I want to create a restore point on my computer before I try to install third-party visual themes on my computer.

The error says:

"The Volume Shadow Copy service used by System Restore is not working. For more information, view the event log. (0x81000202)"

What does this error mean? How can you fix it? What is the event log, and how can you view it? Can anyone help me and answer my questions?

I am suffering a bout of duplications in my Windows Photo Gallery under Vista. I am getting duplicates, triplicates and quadruple versions of the original file.
Despite turning off all Autoplay media types to 'No Action', I get random duplicates when I try to enter update pictures from camera or memory chip through a USB port. There is no 'Enter Updates Only' option, and Microsoft says that this is unnecessary as
duplication is prevented. The duplicates however appear with 'copy' in the file name after the image numbering system. My preference is to view the memory contents via 'Computer' - select and open the port, and view, then copy and paste into Photo
Gallery.  Photo Gallery kicks in to view the chip correctly, but often/always (?) promptly uploads uncommanded. It did not used to do this, only in the last year or two.
What do I do, it is driving me crazy ?

I have my cousins laptop - Dell Inspiron 1545 Laptop - Model: PP41L, With Windows Vista Basic, abd am having issues...

Laptop reboots at the Windows Logon Screen when trying to log into windows. I can log into Windows through Safe mode (and with networking).

Been trying to get an error message off laptop, through BSOD, but reboots too quick to grab.

Have asked a mate and he has said that it refers to video drivers.

Logged into Safe Mode with networking, and tried to download drivers from Dell website, but errors come up with download half way through...

Tried to also re-install windows, using the dell re-installation disc, but unable to see DVD Drive...

Are you able to assist?



A:BSOD & restart loop at windows logon screen - Vista Home Basic

Try to Start in Safe Mode, once it does, Right click on My Computer Select Properties, then on the left pane select Advanced System Settings

Select the 3rd Settings option under Start-up & recovery.
Uncheck Automatically Restart

This wont help you in anyway to get rid of the issue but will buy you time to note down the BSOD error.

I bought a fujitsu s6231 notebook computer. It had a non-valid copy of windows vista. I want to install a copy of Windows XP Pro, so it is back to its RTM state. But when I boot from the disk, it says it cant read the disc or the disc is not a genuine Windows disc. I can assure you it is valid. so I researched and came to the conclusion that i need to wipe the hard drive and boot from the disc again. Am I correct? i also downloaded all the drivers I need, but how will i install these drivers on the notebook? unfortunately, I cannot get my money back for the notebook. I would appreciate any advice on this, I think Im going to use Darik's Noot and Nuke to wipe the hard drive and start over, is this a good idea?

Try running the Dell Diagnostics Test (the full version) to see if it detects any problems. Here's how: How to Run the Dell. If it does, contact Dell Support for assistance (there's a link near the bottom of the above article).

I hope this helps. If the test comes back completely clean, then post back and we'll try something else (or if your computer is still under warranty, contact Dell Support anyway as they should be happy to assist you and know more about your computer than we do).

Good luck!

Hey guys, my hardrive burnt up so I went to a computer repair shop to see if He could check it out, when we were 100% it was done for he had a blank laptop hard drive he could sell me with a burnt windows 7 disk or charge 75$ extra to install it for me. I of course took the blank HD with the installation disk and went home and started it, but when I started the installation I got to the part where it requires drivers but it didn't find any on the disk.

My question is, since I'm going to have to get drivers, can I use a flashdrive to install the drivers? And if so, do I have to format the flashdrive or anything so it will read the drivers?

I downloaded the graphics and audio drivers, along with the wifi one, but are there any that it absolutely has to have in order to work? I've read elsewhere about a chipset driver, but I cannot find it on the HP website.

Once I get it started i'll be using public wifi to get the rest of the drivers as well via auto update im assuming, or I can just download the rest as i see fit.

From this page:


To enable hot plug capability for the SATA connectors controlled by the ICH9 South Bridge, you must install Windows Vista (on ICH9, hot plug is supported in Windows Vista only) and configure the SATA connectors for AHCI mode. (Refer to manual Chapter 2, "BIOS Setup," "Integrated Peripherals," for details on enabling AHCI.)

Hey Guys,
Have an XPS one that came with Vista Home and wanted to "UPGRADE" to XP MCE 2005. Everything is functionable except the touch panel and some of the functions on the right side of the keyboard (eject, volume, media center functions). Any ideas on what to do? Dell only supplies drivers for Vista.

A:Driver issues with xp media center edition 2005 (downgraded from vista home)

Yeah that's not an upgrade. Your can try googling for drivers and you may find some. But more and more modern computers aren't coming with XP drivers. XP is an old and aged OS and is on the way out.

I am curious of why you felt the need to take that step back though. There is nothing in XP MCE that isn't in Vista Home Premium.

Please advice on the performance comparison between

assuming if both uses the same 8GB RAM.

A:Performance comparison btw. Windows 7 Home Basic versus Home Premium

Hello cheesum and welcome to Seven Forums.

Last question first. This tutorial may help enable Aero. Please note that there is no way to enable transparency on Windows Home Basic.

Aero - Enable in Unsupported Editions of Windows 7

As far as performance, I have not been able to find any specific "speed" tests to say one way or the other.

Difference Between Windows 7 Home Basic and Home Premium | Difference Between | Windows 7 Home Basic vs Home Premium

But if Basic and Home Premium are run on two identical machines (not just identical RAM, but also identical hard drive/hard drive speed, identical CPU, identical programs and apps installed, etc) I would give a very slight performance advantage to Basic simply because it doesn't have the same amount of features that Home Premium has. Fewer features to load usually equals faster performance. But I think any performance advantage would be so slight it wouldn't make any appreciable difference.

I did find some comments comparing Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.

Of course, others may completely disagree with my thoughts and that's cool. Healthy discussion and debate is welcomed.

Please help, My friend Wants to Buy Windows 7 Ultimate but first wants to try the 30-day trial version. He's using an HP laptop with Windows Home Basic 64-bit OS. He is wondering how to do this so in turn I am asking you guys out here right now. Does it need a clean install? He already downloaded a retail dvd for the Windows 7 Ultimate OS ISO. Also one of his concerns is that there is an image backup of his OS with the system factory settings, we're both wondering if it would still be accessible (it's on a different hdd partition) once he successfully installs the Ultimate OS.

He's doing this at first, and then he's planning to try out Windows 7 Professional next and then decide which to Buy to replace his original OS.

We'd really appreciate any feedback about this.
