    Re: Is computer ready to run Windows XP?

    Just been reading through a lot more posts re. this OS.

    O.k. Is there a site that lists hardware compatibility? Viz. I want to find out if both my modems will continue to work - the manufacturer went bust some 18 months ago - Pace 56kVoD

    Did you run the test listed above?

    I have NOT seen a list per say, just this test and the one from Microsoft, which takes longer to download.
