Had an acer SA90 in early 2008, as a representative of my first time vista experience = awful hardware.
My condolences. 😔 It seems to have had a "Vista Basic" sticker, too.
Which translated to "Vista makes it to the desktop; PC can barely run XP, either."
The success of Windows 7 was largely based on Vista's hardware requirements.
The Windows 98 era PCs, which were slightly upgraded to run Windows XP over the years, were finally deprecated/retired.
This also helped XP to run better, since 512MB RAM were a minimum requirement to run Vista.
So penny wise users were finally forced to upgrade RAM.. I loved Vista for this circumstance. 🥳
Edit: Just noticed, I'm a bit too chatty again. My bad. 😅
The nuker that i had was vista home premium, not basic. Things might of been more understandable it that been the case.
the specs were: 1gb ram, sata 250gb hdd, Ati radeon hd2400 pro lo-profile, E2160 pentium dual-core, ide dvd-rw, internal card reader
and the worst motherboard i ever touched. (yes, worse than the pcchips m512 because at least that didn't keep shutting down)
I manage a pot-pourri of video matter...
