Ok, now i've tried both 32 n 64 bit vista. I got rid of 64. its still horrible. Nero, doesn't work n i couldn't even get adobe pdfs to work, among many many other things. (Least of all was that the speed of the system was horifically slow) So I'm on 32 (x86) and it's great! Just like xp, maybe 10% slower with full aero enabled. But a problem i've been experiencing on both (and have kinda experienced once b4 in XP) is this keyboard/cursor problem. Say i'm typing and i'm on paragraph 2, but my cursor is pointing to the middle of paragraph 1. If i type away at my regular speed (fairly fast) then it will occasionally freak out and start typing where the cursor is located (middle of paragraph 1). so all my words get jumbled up into a huge mess. I think i fixed it previously in xp by just loading a bunch of xp drivers from the cd, but that won't work this time around. Either way. it's killing me. I've had to write a bunch of emails recently and i gotta re-position the cursor. could this possibly be the touchpad being ultra sensitive? I've been pretty careful to make sure, even whilst typing fast that i wasn't touching the touchpad, but u never know. I hate the touchpad, so i never use it, but do i need to update the drivers for it? Also i managed to install the vista wireless drivers (i think) from asus. but i still can't turn wireless on and i don't know where to do so. It's ok for the moment since i'm connected to the network via good old rj45, but i still want wireless. If anybody can help, i'd really appreciate it. Thanks.
