    I've got a Dell Latitude D-620 with a Windows Vista sticker on the bottom. I installed XP on it, but it didn't seem to run very well. Is XP not fully compatible on this computer? Thank you much

    Thanks for the link. I tried to get Dell to get into my laptop and XP OS, and tell me what drivers I needed, but I couldn't get the software file to install

    you are welcome, I cannot get dell to search my pc either, I believe that they have stopped that service, I get all kinds of errors when I try to install the software, also.

    @PJAmerica, hi :) have not seen you around lately.

    I read a review by Tim Fischer on the snappy driver installer, and it does not say whether it will have drivers for an older OS being installed on a newer pc??

    I am around. I lurk mostly. Not sure about newer PCs either. I used it on a 2011 Dell Inspiron PC and it works on my Dell Optiplex 755 2008 & Dell Dimension 3000 2004. I cannot attest to anything else. I have told friends about it who have newer PCs though and they were amazed by it.
