Some Desktop News

Still haven't been able to install my HP Deskjet 3325 printer on Vista although the net suggested that the Deskjet 3500 drivers will make it work, still yet to find out, let me know if it worked for you.

I had my old windows 95 scanner working on my old XP partition, that is before i delete it and did a fresh install, all the drivers were only windows 95 compatible so i had no idea how i did it before, anyways, so to fix it I searched for my Epson Perfection 610 drivers for windows xp online and found it, did a virus check and then install into XP and it works now! yay! Still doesn't work in Vista but for a windows 95 age hardware its done great.

I've also found out why my Vista partition has been so slow on my desktop but decent on my laptop, it turns out that the power options were default set on power saver, which makes no sense and that means the desktop will only use a max of 50% of my CPU. Now i flicked it back into Max Performance and it seems to be much better, now to install SP1 and see if it makes things more equal to XP's performance ;) Its suppose to be fair good, my desktop is only lacking graphics else it should be suffice for Vista so lets hope the SP1 will make things fly a bit more.

That's one thing about durable hardware from good manufacturers, you have to make sure they support you when you upgrade software and not their hardware. but Still cheers on HP and Epson's durability (with the exclusion of my Epson printer which seemed to have to no probs but the printer software that Epson gave assured me i should go out to shops and buy a new one, which i did only it was a HP)
