distorted sound and jumpy windows



i have just changed hard drives from windows xp on a 60 gig hard drive to
windows vista ultimate on a new hard drive 160 gig,
now the old HD had a spin seed of 4800 the new disk spins at 5400 both
IDE/ATA would this need a new driver or would this update itself in the
i had a problem with the prationing but i think i got there in the end it
loaded ok
i done the microsoft vista upgrade test for my laptop and all was ok exept
for the lan card which needed a upgraded driver, done that with no problems.
on my frist boot up with vista windows start up sound was distorted and all
animations are all jumpy, when you open a window it starts up from the tray
at the bottom and jumps from size to size untill it gets to full size window
its not a smooth operaition,
i have joined the radarsyn2008 driver thing-gie which i found on this forum
and updated all my drivers but all these problems are still there,
things i've done so far is to the realtek hd audio f1.90 vista driver,
enhancement settings on and off no differance to the problem..
i've tryed several audio drivers i just left it at the newest
i gone through the msconfig clean boot had only 4 programs there which were
all add after the install
if anyone can help with this would be much appreciated.. ho yes i will need
how to do it help??..
also just been going through microsoft pages and they seem to be hanging and
i don't mean seconds i mean minutes...

this is my system info (don't laugh)

For best results you should be using a minimum of 2Gigs of RAM with Vista.
Also, you need 128MBs minimum of Graphics(Video Card) to run it!

Colin Barnhorst

Actually, that's just for Home Premium. I suggest 3GB for Ultimate x86 and
agree with HP that 4GB is best for Ultimate x64.
