Eventually I upgraded to the latest bios for the Twinhead mobo. A minor nuance that many people have is the UAC, and i do admit that it is very annoying, but it takes literally 2 minutes including a google search on how to do it to turn it off. I can be typing an email and take my eyes off the screen momentarily and the cursor has skipped a line, or a paragraph , and I find I am typing in the wrong place. If your keyboard or touchpad stops working the thing to do is lift the keboard off carefully. Add Your Answer Tips for a great answer:

Have rung the Techguys not Philips support and been told, wait for saga, the installation of any other OS invalidates the warranty. Hi, Can anyone tell as how to reinstall vista on 11NB Could be worthwhile telling people to update?
I also have sta Freevents X59 and cannot load Vista at all as it does not see the HDD again in very simple terms how do I get round this please, thanks for any help but please keep it very simple, thankyou. Two days later the touchpad kicked the bucket… so using a USB mouse was the only way to navigate. I could see the hard drive, delete the Vista partition, and start Eata Setup! The ram slot is then visible in the bottom right hand corner of the main board.
The keyboard should be able to be lifted off to reveal connecting cables. Please enter a valid email address.
It tool me a couple of weeks on and off. I uploaed the twinhead version, and of course my copy of windows has deactivated. Any help would be appreciated as when I try to reinstall vista in gets to the end of the setup and tells it cannot configure a component and asks to restart setup—which is waste eata time. You can’t post answers that contain an email address.
I got the drive out… replaced with a bigger version, and got the whole thing up and running again with a fresh Vista install, but the original drive was knackered… and after putting everything back together, for some reason part of the keyboard the left side of saya spacebar and the Alt key were raised allowing dust and all other kinds of crap to easily get in. Also worth noting it only has one slot, so buy a 2gb stick, not a 1gb hoping to end up with 2. In fact, this should be a direct link to it.
There maybe up to 4 screws holding the keyboard in place, remove these screws. Many Thanks for your prompt reply.
Everything now up and running. You may need to set in the BIOS whether numlock is on or off on boot up.
What your trying to do here is unconnect the drive on the inside and slide it out of the laptop about 1cm, thats all it will come. Thanks alot for your quick response! I think this is the easiest and least technical solution. But machine was stalled after a few lines of text not even allowing me to enter the BIOS.
One reason for replacing Vista with XP is that the latter runs much quicker. BUT what driver was it exactly……the exact name? Not finding what you are looking for? Is that not happening? Jan 10, Twinhead Notebook. I have the exact same issue as you with the Phillips Freevents laptop. The cause was something WiFi-card related, so you might just try turning wireless off while installing.
I tried to remove it but it looks hat if is fixed to the motherboard. The max point reward for answering a question is Please if anyone can help email me matt otlclothing. Hi Ken, The problem with these Philips laptops is that they were actually a bit ahead of their time.
