Install Windows8.1 and check the Device Manager, What Driver you need?
Update your system and look at the optional updates. Select all drivers Update from there.
Or you can find the driver you need via google..
I do not know where to raise this question. so i am doing it here. Have Microsoft disable the phone activation option? When i run slui 4. It says cannot activate windows through phone. Any help please
Well let's see you have Vista installed OK . The next closest OS would be Win 7 as 97% of the drivers are the same .It's more stable than Vista and you won't be trying to learn something all over again (OS). Besides all your hardware might not work as it's already ten years old ..... go with win 7 . Herman
if it runs Vista it will run Windows 8.1 imo. it's actually faster than Windows Vista or 7
the metro UI is not really a problem I don't use it much and you may even find it useful for certain purposes.
I dunno why people hate on Windows 8 so much the Metro UI is really just an addition, not a drastic change.
coz its ugly and dumbed down ?
Windows 8.1 would fit great on your system, especially on an ssd. I say ssd because I feel that win8.1 was made for an ssd as I have installed win8.1 on ssd 's over and over and the performance is outstanding
With those specs I'd recommend win7 x86 versions. It's not going to be any improvement using win8.1 without the newer cpu features, and it might cause issues with overheating that I've seen in a lot of older systems.
Home basic or Home premium would be fine for you if you can find it in your preferred language. If you need to add more languages or join a domain, I'd suggest ultimate or enterprise.
1. Wrong thread.
2. Provide more information please. Version, edition, etc.
3. If you reply in this thread, you might not get a response.
8.1 might run okay, but a better idea would be to go for a hardware upgrade instead. 7 would be a better choice as murphy said.
Because of your RAM. 4 gigs of RAM is advised for a x64 system, and x86 can comfortably handle those 2 gigs.

Completely normal. Nothing you have to worry about as long as your system is running fine.
