    No - what are the two Acers come with a recovery disk?

    If this is not the case, one of them would have a recovery partion, which specifically is to reinstall the operating system on it.

    I have a desktop P4 computer and ran on Vista Ultimate for more than 1 year (window updated constantly). Everything worked smoothly until one night, all my USB devices don't work anymore. Based on the Device Manager, the USB are ok, check my BIOS, everything remains unchanged.

    now, I got tired of reinstalling the same operating system and at the end of the installation, all USB devices do not work.

    Please can someone advise what should I do to recover my devices USB working again.

    It is the motherboard or the operating system has problems?

  • Vista Ultimate 64 Media Center Guide showing now "No Data available" on all THE TRACKS!

    At Microsoft, Please will someone give me a solution to this? I see other users having the same problems, but none of the solutions have worked on my system.

    Problem: The guide in my Vista Ultimate 64 Media Center went to the indication "No Data available" on two large local stations to show on all THE stations, making it unusable guide and the Media Center unprogrammable.
    The Media Center and the Guide were great features and additions to my ATSC OTA television until mid-June, when this two station (and their substrings) launches it first stood. Now it's total.

    I downloaded both MCETVPack Windows6. 0-KB966315-x 64.msu and Windows6. 0-KB967632-x 64.msu , but the TWO open a dialog box reading "this update does not apply to your system."

    I tried to configure my TV options in Media Center repeatedly, but this does not change a thing.

    Please give me a solution that works with my system.

    Hi John Pendleton.

    Please check that the updates of windows are installed on the computer, including service packs.

    I would like for you to try the following steps as well:

    Go to the media guide and select the channel that you have a problem with.

    Make sure that you can recover the programs before performing this procedure, because if you cannot receive the programs you won't have the registration guide either.

    Open the Program Guide and navigate the Canal problem.  Right click on the channel of the problem and choose settings.  Then click TV, click Guide, and then add announces to the channel, click the channel of problem and change to one of the channels below the list (for example, 4Music).

    Click Save button. Now click on the channel you selected (for example 4Music) and repeat the procedure but cela suite scroll delay to find the channel of problem.

    Click on save and go on the media guide and registration should now appear.   If this is successful, you will need to perform this procedure for the other channels as well.  Check if the guide works correctly.  Let us know the results in your response.

  • Should I install Vista Ultimate on all computers laptops before moving on to a 3 Windows 7 license three?

    I'm considering the purchase of three laptops for home use and the case I've seen is for three laptops without operating system. I prefer Windows 7 64 - bit Windows 8 and, of course, need a license of user-3. I don't mind if it's Home Basic, Home Premium, professional or ultimate edition, but an 'Upgrade' will work and if not, what would? I have a spare disk Vista Ultimate, which I have not used more than once when I tried the upgrade to XP and didn't like it, so I went back to XP (present under Windows 7 Ultimate for my main PC) Vista has been in the area since then. I hope I did not install Vista Ultimate on all computers laptops before moving on to 3 Windows 7 license, three but I have a feeling vague feeling that I have to do exactly this. You confirm please?

    Original title: clean install on the new laptop

    Just keep in mind that the OEM versions are equipped with the installation media DVD 32-bit or 64-bit (not both as a retail version) and a product key.

    Also the OEM versions are related to the first card of mother/computer it is installed on and cannot be moved to another PC.

    The cost of an OEM version is much cheaper than commercial versions, especially since Microsoft stopped selling Windows 7.


    As laptops have no OS installed, you need a way to test the system before you try to install an OEM version. I've provided two links to download Windows 7 Home premium (not), but you can install (install without a key) and it allows to test each laptop computer before installing an OEM version.

    Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit:
    SHA1 hash: 6071B4553FCF0EA53D589A846B5AE76743DD68FC
    Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit:
    SHA1 hash: 6C9058389C1E2E5122B7C933275F963EDF1C07B9

    (1) after downloading the correct .iso file install HashCalc and validate the SHA1 hash value
    is correct. If the download is not corrupted, the value HashCalc returns will be the value of SHA1 I posted.

    (2) then use ImgBurn or ISO gear to burn a bootable DVD.

    Create a Windows 7 Bootable DVD using the. ISO file
    Engraving of a file of Windows 7 ISO on a DVD

    ImgBurn - in addition to supporting the creation of CD/DVD of. ISO files,
    It supports a wide range of image file formats, and it's free.

    Projectiles help you to use ImgBurn to screen:
    Burn the ISO Images with ImgBurn article:
    (Les étapes sont les mêmes pour Windows 7 ou Windows 8), except that you do not create a repair disk but complete an installation DVD)

    Note: Always use high quality DVD + R media and slower burning (4 x or 6 x) speed is offered a choice.

    ====================== Keyless Install ================================

    How to make a 'Keyless Install"of Windows:

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD disc, you create and launch the installation.

    After you have entered the user name and password that you will be asked:
    "Type your Windows product key", do not enter a key.
    Also located just below the box where you enter the key is a box with a check mark
    to "Automatically activate Windows when I'm online", remove the check box and click "next".

    You now have a 30-day grace period to activate Windows

    During this 30-day grace period you can try to solve your problems. 
    After you are satisfied with all the problems have been resolved and then activate Windows.

    ====================== Device Drivers ===============================

    Go to your computer manufacturer's support web site and search for Windows 7 drivers for your specific model number.

    If there are Windows 7 drivers, then to download to a folder on your hard drive and install all of them, starting with the card drivers mother/chipset, SATA, LAN, Audio, USB, graphics, Webcam, Etc., and so on.

    What can be the reason?

    Is it possible to force the laptop to produce all the sounds in mode bios to make sure whether it is hardware or software (vista) problem?

    As the seller claims, there is warranty of world for this laptop...

    Best regards


    I doubt that it's a hardware problem, so your warranty won't help because warranty doesn't cover software issues.

    I don t think that this laptop was preinstalled with Vista Ultimate.
    Have you installed this Vista with your own hands?

    In your case I would remove the sound card in Device Manager and could restart the laptop.
    The audio driver should install again and the sound card should appear correctly in Device Manager.

  • Vista Ultimate on a Qosmio G-series

    Hello, I bought vista ultimate on ebay and I installed it not knowing it was actually an OEM.
    I did a clean install and all toshiba drivers disappeared and it said that my manufacturer is other than toshiba.

    When it's toshiba is there anyway I can get all the drivers without losing vista and I lost the recovery disc that comes with toshba

    Someone help please!


    My first question: why did you buy a BONE of Ebay? I´d never do something, because you don t know if the software is stolen or copied or whatever.
    It seems that you have purchased a DVD of recovering from another manufacturer, so you won´´t have the right drivers on your machine.

    But if Vista is running on your machine and you have just a few drivers for it, than to download the drivers here

    or here

    You should find the drivers for your machine on these sites.

    Hope I could help you.

    I found this information for you:

    "First of all, go to your computer manufacturer's website and check if your computer model has XP drivers available for it...

    If the XP drivers are not available for your model, forget the idea.

    If Yes, download and save to a CD or Flash drive.

    Save all your data because it will be lost during the installation of XP.

    Then follow the steps below to do a clean install.

    Once installed, reload ALL your other programs of original media, or download again.
