    Default Downgrade to XP on Q1580V ? Help !!!

    Hi there

    i have got a Gigabyte q1580v Laptop. Was bought brand new 2 months ago.
    It came with Vista and had an option to upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium.

    This is my issue.
    I have installed NFS Shift and NFS Pro Street.
    The games load fine but alot of the times i cannot access the game itself.
    It starts NFS, loads the video, then i select my Profile and it hangs on that screen saying " Loading Profile elements .... Please wait" and it will sit there forever.

    Installed NFS Pro Street - Double click on icon after install and the game hangs.

    Laptop Has 4GB RAM
    2.5Ghz Dual Core Processor
    512MB 9600M GS Nvidia 3G card

    i have updated the grahics card drivers as well same issue.

    i have reached my limit and now im sure with XP it wont give me any crap as my ither laptop doesnt.

    Is there a downgrade Cd available from Gigabyte so that i can install XP ?
    Anyone done this ?

    thanks for all the help

    theres lots of fixes you can try with win7 its a pain sometimes as you have to run the game as administrator for it to work sometimes,try that first right click the game desktop icon and then pick run as administrator,if that doesnt work then right clickgame icon/properties,compatability and select run in xp mode and select run as administartor boxes and then try it
