i7210 and eGalax Driver

i7210 owners can install the eGalax driver released here. Unchecking the box in the Power Tab of the driver fixes part of the problem with Stand By and Hibernation. This does not mean that with this driver all the problems that the i7210 has with Vista are going to end according to tests done by JKK but at least we now know that none of the problems come from this driver. In another words, we have taken one more variable out of the equation.

Another tip shared by JKK is to install Synaptic latest Vista Driver.

Many of you have asked me what's known about Vista Drivers for the i7210 and i7209 devices. So far I have found two very contradictory answers. The first one came from Founder (Chinese makers of these UMPCs) saying that these devices were designed to be used with XP and that they do not have any plans about releasing Vista Drivers for these devices. The second answer was sent by email to a friend of my by TabletKiosk saying that they are expecting to release these drivers in the next 4 to 6 weeks. The chances of Founder to release these drivers are the same than Tabletkiosk's. Both companies depend on others to design these drivers. Keep in mind that any UMPC is composed by parts made by other companies. To get all of them to release these drivers in a short period of time is not an easy task. So lets hope for the best.
