Sony Vaio VGN-SZ460N
Long story short - this laptop was given to me aftrer some damage and i’ve been diligently working on this laptop for 9 days straight in hopes of fixing it… Pretty much got it to work however it seems to have never ending issues with Vista - I’m getting frustrated and tired - 18hr days and nights trying and trying. Yet with each fix comes more issues.
I’m working o hard on it because:
- i can’t afford a new laptop or PC
- it has a better - excuse me - It actually has a graphics processor - my older laptop doesn’t ths one has the NVidia 7400 go, admitidly not the best - low middle - but a graphics card none the less, with open Gl and DirectX10 support.
- I want to use it with Blender and of course some of the other apps i’ve been dying to actually USE not jsut look at and watch everyone else use.
If i can’t fix it soon with Vista installed;
My conciderations since the VGN seemingly can’t take to XP too well is
A) going to Win7RC
If so question is Blendr going to work on it?
B) going to a Linux OS -
which one works with this laptop?
I saw a site tht had listing/data base for what hardware and laptops worked with what Linux Os - of course this model of Vaio wasn’t in the data base.
With so many Linux version to choose from - and risks involved - which is the right one for this comp?
