Hi, saw your problem with Vista. It has been published in PC World, Smart Computing, etc that there are driver problems with the new Vista operating system Most say that drivers will be available by summer I know it is a major hassle, but you can try the manuf site then. Some software makers are also saying that they will NOT update for Vista. I will go after them in time, after I get my Vista. CNET should have had an article alerting people to that problem. How come
Smart Computing and PC World could??? and they couldn't????
It might be that they go easier on companies that give them adv bucks!!!!!!!!!
I also had a problem with a car dealer caused by the bank that was financing. One month after I got my new car, the bank told the dealer that they would not pay on that model. Thus the dealer came back to me
to bring in the car for an exchange. That I didn't have a problem with. BUT WHAT THEY DID NEXT, I DID!!!!!!!!
They exchanged it for another model that they claimed was worth as much, but had 10,000 miles on it.
It had been a GM exec car. When I found out that the value of that car was only $8,000 vs the loan
from the first of $16,000 I went through the roof. That is when they got me in a room closed doors with
managers, including finance manager and telling me they would not search for another vehicle. That is when I went through the roof. I threaten to go to Ocean County Consumer affairs (Toms River NJ) and they sang a
different tune. The poor salesman didn't know what to think. I just told him I understood that the bank was
the one at fault BUT any lose was not my problem. They would have to fight it out with the bank. Also told
them at my job, we had an error account and we would never stick on a client something that wasn't their
fault. Well I got another car, with 1,600 miles on it (the first car that was brand new had 850 miles when I brought it back, and the second added another 700 miles) So I said that was a fair exchange. I am not the
type that wants something for nothing and I wanted to be fair. I did get them to swap out the radio for the one
in the second car that also had a CD player, got them to add the thick side moldings, and even got them
to give me the front and rear floor mats. It wasn't fun but I think we both came out somewhat ok except the
dealer had the first car that they sold me new, but now had to sell it as USED. Not fun for them and they
better have gone after the bank.
Hope this helps
