I upgraded my os to Vista Ultimate and it worked fine. However, I didn't get my webcam back. I will try to go to the Chinese web site for the driver. I think I will get used to Vista.
I have an Aspire 5102 since Nov. 2006. The OrbiCam went down a few months ago. Then the XP OS went down, I can not repair or reinstall XP. I ended up formatted my C drive, and loaded the Vista upgrade disc to Vista home premium.
