Windows XP x64 on W500 - Help!

2008-10-18, 10:47 AM

I'm losing my mind getting everything working. I DESPISE Windows Vista, and have 4GB of RAM so I can't really go with x86 without rendering some of my RAM useless.

 

If anyone has managed to get everything working on this model with XP x64, PLEASE let me know how to get things all working.

 

Current major issue: no sound, even though audio driver is installed.

Hi kbernges,

 

I'm running Vista 64 and took a little leg work but got it configured to just where I need it. If you need to optimize for ram you can disable some of the performance services that pre-load programs into ram that give the appearance you are using more ram even thou they are removed from memory when needed..  

 

I'm running XP at work and now I rather run my Vista machine.
