Hey so i recently upgraded to vista, and everythings going well except bluetooth, and FN keys, like brightness and WLAN, ide really like for them to work, so what do i need 😀
Like i said, im running Vista Ultimate.December 1, 2008 at 11:30 pm #173228GhostfuryMember
Use the following vista- software of the samsung X360-34P:
-Easy Display Manager
-Easy Battery Manager3
-Easy Speedup Manager
It works for me.
Edit: Tidied up a long link. adatay92December 2, 2008 at 8:09 am #173231KieronBMember
Ah great installing those now, is Easy Network manager going to do WLAN? Just thought it sounds like it XD
Edit; Dont know if my webcams working or not, no icon in my computer like XP, any suggestions?December 2, 2008 at 11:08 am #173229GhostfuryMember
The webcam doesn’t work here (Vista Home Premium) either. Tried different drivers and the PlayCam software of the 1.3 namuga webcam with no succes.December 2, 2008 at 11:49 am #173227FreddyMember
For those of you who are running Vista, what kind of battery life are you getting (with standard settings, 3-bar brightness (37.5%), Wifi on, i.e Normal Battery Mode in XP)?
My reason for not running Vista and keep XP is mostly due to the better battery life you are supposed to get. I’ve read that Vista makes the laptop (netbook 😉 ) run out of battery faster. Is this true/false?December 2, 2008 at 12:52 pm #173226jezMember
I’m sure most people here know but Vista is currently in the list of unsupported Operating Systems on the Samsung site. So don’t be too suprised if there are some probs and no solutions forthcoming.
Like, I said, I’m sure most people install this OS knowing the risk but I wanted to make that clear 🙂
From their FAQ:Quote:Samsung only supports the MicrosoftÂ® WindowsÂ® Operating System supplied with your netbook computerDecember 2, 2008 at 4:34 pm #173230NcssryEvlMember
I’ve seen the battery meter show up to just shy of 8 hours on low settings, and routinely see it in the 6 hour range with Wifi on and brightness around 3.
I never ran XP on it, so I can’t say how it comparesApril 3, 2009 at 12:14 pm #173233WitchlowMember
Hi, I’m trying to get Vista Ultimate onto an NC20. Mostly running but I can’t get the function keys working. I tried Ghostfury’s advice (-Easy Display Manager-Easy Battery Manager3-Easy Speedup Manager from samsung X360-34P). When I try to run Magic Keyboard I get an error message saying that Easy Speedup Manager has performed an illegal operation etc. In the Magic Keyboard Hotkey setup, the Hotkey options are greyed out. I notice that Magic Keyboard only seems to be available for XP.
Anyone any ideas?August 15, 2010 at 4:13 pm #173234August 15, 2010 at 4:26 pm #173232
