I have everything working just great so far in vista with my 8204. Matter of fact I just installed vista on the D drive partition and left acer crap on the xp partition.
Here is what I have done since 11PM last night.
Vista 5672 Beta 2
Everything detected except soundcard from install
Ran Update, got logitech cam - optional
Card Interface Driver - optional
and Sound Driver (Didnt work)
Installed the HD realtek driver from web.
Installed ATI Catylyst Driver - Took a very long time to install but seems to be quite stable
Got generic touchpad driver from synaptics - Works Great!
Listened to some XM radio on the Media Center App while installing all the junk
My router is a Linksys WRT54GS with DD-WRTsp23 Final Fw. No dropped connections at all in the last 6 hours.
Does anyone know what logitech software works with this webcam. Ive heard you can use the acer version in xpsp2 compat mode but I would prefer the logitech version if it works.
BTW, this is my first night with my 8204. I have the LTN screen and its a january build i think.
-No grey lines that I can see
i dont have 667Mhz memory though obviously.
I got it used from mak on the forums. Its immaculate. here and absolutely love it. He could not have taken better care of this fine laptop. AND...its a portable heater when i get the chilly willies
Glad to be here. It was this or the W2JB ASUS for me. I never realized how big a 15:4 screen is in front of you. I am considering sending it off for crystalbrite coating as the mat is kinda drab for me. Well see though.
Anyone know if Acers Mfg Warranty is transferable like dell. Just curious.
