    HI Asif,

    Have you installed the drivers for the audio, video, and wireless adapters?

    I've found that having a server version laptop is ideal for testing
    environments. Especially with the capacity of today's laptops. I can open up
    my laptop any time I want and adjust settings that I know I have to work on
    on the production server. This will allow me to make the settings I need,
    test them, and almost instantaniously implement them on the production
    server as soon as I'm comfortable with them.

    The other option is to have VS on the production server, which will allow
    you to do the same basic thing, but if you have multiple servers in
    different geographic locations, the laptop will give you a bit more freedom.

    that :p

    Yeah, there is that reason too.... the only problem that I've found with
    running server on any 'production' computer is that any anti-virus program
    (if you decide to use one) is pretty expensive.

    Couple things. As a client Server 2003 runs faster than XP. I ran 2K3 for a
    couple years on my laptop. As for your problem with wireless it may be a
    conflict, as for the video and audio.....

    You need to Enable windows audio as well with the video you must enable
    hardware acceleration. Both of which are simple steps. For the audio just
    open the sounds control panel applet and enable the audio - reboot and your
    done. With the Video you need to open the display properties goto the
    settings tab where you change your resolution and click advanced. On the
    troubleshooting tab simply drag the bar to the right. By default Video has
    no hardware acceleration and windows audio is turned off. also if you like
    the XP themes you can enable those but starting and changing the services in
    the Services MMC.

    There are several web sites out there dedicated to showing you how to run
    2K3 like a client which is why I didn't take the time to fully spell
    anything out. Couple decent sites...
