Product Support

When will it come???:mad: I recently did a build for my older brother and am wondering where the hell product support is at for vista x64. I mean I bought an x64 board and proc along with vista x64. However, for some reason unbeknownst to me, the x64 board that I bought doesn't have ANY x64 drivers, @ least from where I've been looking. There's also an issue with a wireless card (once again, no drivers :( at the moment).
I've also been digging for a freeware similar to MoboMon/CPUMon or whatever that has a digital readout of proc temps...(for some reason I think the proc may be running a little too hot) and as of yet have to find one. I've heard that MBM5 is a solution, but for some reason it won't run for me.



Oh and yea...lol, it's my 1st post here.

If you have done the research, you would have found that there is pretty much no drivers/support for any 64-bit based Operating Systems (Even if this is Vista x64 Forums :P ). My laptops a Turion64, how do you think I feel not being able to get the power I want out of it? I recommend installing Vista/XP 32-bit and next time research it fully. Older hardware will have more driver support than newer hardware but Manufacturers will start supplying Vista-only drivers starting this month. You aren't really helping by not supplying the Hardware Specifications and Operating System for your Brother's Computer.

EDIT:
Also, if you own a full edition of Vista (Not OEM / Express Upgrade), you would have had Vista 32-bit and 64-bit depending on which one you bought. I have no doubt that Microsoft will supply a swap for Vista 32-bit unless you have patience. ;)

I disagree blane, I have done a few vista x64 installs now and the driver support out of the box has been been spot on, ok older hardware like webcams etc the support it crap but its come a hell of a long way since the release of XP x64.

IMHO by the end of this year x64 will have the support it deserves and x86 will start to fade away as it should.

It's only because what, Microsoft added over 1.5 million driver support? I agree that x86 will fade away in the next yearly period and most enthusiasts (Gamers, Developers, Techies) will finally be able to take their systems to a new level, leaving simple users (Don’t care about speed) with a lot more performance than ever before. Like, nVidia just released it’s drivers to fully support DirectX 10 and a lot of major hardware/software producers have been publicizing 64-bit support. It would make life a hell of a lot easier for MixMasterMike if s/he supplied the hardware information.

Windows XP 64-bit didn't have a lot of driver support, now someone just has to mod the Vista drivers to make them slightly backwards compatible.
