Re: XP SP2 other than windows update
FWIW, SP2 rendered my Sony Vaio PCG-SR17 completely useless. From what I can tell, it replaced the PCMCIA bridge driver (pcmcia.sys) with one that does not work, and there is no way to "roll back" the driver to the pre-XP2 one without rolling back the entire OS. I am in an ongoing dialog with MS support trying to resolve the issue and will post if we discover anything significant. But for now, if your laptop uses a Ricoh PCMCIA bridge chip, I'd suggest you hold off on SP2. matto On Mon, 06 Sep 2004 21:58:08 -0400, Jim Popovitch <jimpop@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: > > Fwiw, XP SP2 CDs are available at some PC retail outlets.
