I have been chronicling my experience running Vista on the Fujitsu P1610 since I went totally Vista a few weeks back. The only remaining issue I have is the SigmaTel Audio drivers that Fujitsu posted as soon as Vista was released publicly. I still have problems with the audio performance, especially with the recording abilities. I tried uninstalling the Fujitsu Vista drivers and went back to the native drivers installed by Vista but that only lasted a few days as the volume level was too low at the maximum volume setting and the headphone jack didn’t work. The internal microphone was also not recognized and wouldn’t work as a result. Due to all these problems I reinstalled the Fujitsu drivers and am back to the original audio problems, namely that the recording quality sucks. This is a shame as the SigmaTel audio under Windows XP were one of the main strengths of performance since it’s a high-definition audio device.
I’d like to hear from other P1610 owners who have upgraded to Vista about their experiences, especially regarding the audio situation. I’ve been watching the Fujitsu support site but they have not upgraded the driver yet. I’m trying to determine if my experience is just a fluke or if others are still living with inferior audio under Vista. Maybe we can pool our collective information and make something happen.
