  • Is my Dell Inspiron 531 Vista Home Basic s capable of an upgrade to Windows 7?

    Is my Dell Inspiron 531 Vista Home Basic s capable of an upgrade to Windows 7?


    I'm sorry, but your Dell Inspiron 531 s is NOT able to be upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista and with Windows 7 installed and working properly.

    As you can read on this link of Dell, Dell did NOT write Windows 7 drivers for your model computer.

    Under 'refine your results' > 'Operating System' > click the operating system dropdown > NO Windows 7 drivers available

    Without the correct Windows 7 hardware drivers to use, you're wasting your time and most importantly, your money.

    Hi stuart-vm,.

    I looked at the Dell website for the resolution of the problems of touchpad.
    Look at the troubleshooting here.

    This is information from Dell:
    Press the NumLock key on your Dell laptop
    In order to have the features of a 101 keyboard keys on a laptop key 85, the NumLock key active keyboard 10 key functions that would be normally resident on the right side of a standard keyboard. Simply press again to return to normal operation

    I don't know if it will help your problem.

    There is a link to the Dell Diagnostics to see if there is a hardware problem:

  • Acer Aspire laptop with Vista Home Basic Edition does not, System Restore does not, sfc, find corrupt files but do not repair. Need help!

    Hi, I have an Acer laptop Aspire with Vista Home Basic Edition that came pre-installed, so no records only the disk hard drive partition.

    I turned on my laptop today and it starts but the loading bar of stalls at the black screen with "(c) Microsoft Corporation" and dragging green. The slide bar will continue to drag, but nothing else happens which means that I understand even as much as the login screen. I rebooted and tried Windows recovery, but the only remedy to what he suggests is a restoration of the system, which does not have any point, I try to restore it.

    To remedy this, I have connected in safe mode and ran the SFC command prompt. It scans my system and told to find corrupted files, but he can't heal some. This is where my knowledge limit runs out. I don't know how to fix the files that the SFC cannot. (Also I created a journal using the findstr command prompt and checked but it say anywhere that it was unable to fix it so I'm not even sure how to identify corrupted files)

    As it's an Acer laptop, Aspire I'll try their eRecovery tool to return my computer to factory settings, but it won't work in safe mode, and as I said I can not connect normally. I tried alt and F10 at the initial boot screen when I turn on, it loads the windows files and shows the Acer "Please wait a moment" screen and then nothing happens again.

    I can't afford to get it fixed, and there is no chance I can get a new laptop. Any ideas/help? Thank you.

  • Spanish version of Windows for a more laptop under Vista Home

    Hi, I have a laptop of 6 years I want to donate to Spanish speakers here in Ecuador.  It runs Vista Home, whose English is the parent language.  I'm interested in loading any possible form of Windows which is in Spanish, if this means upgrade to another version or change the language of the current version.  I met obstacles in all directions that I tried.  From what I found, I can't change the language unless I update, Vista Ultimate or 7 Ultimate, or Windows 8.  But I can't find or the other of the first two, and for the third, the site said I can't get Vista to Windows 8.1.  Does anyone know a way to get to a Spanish Windows operating system from Vista Home?  Otherwise, I can't give a good machine for Spanish-speakers that pena!  The machine is a gateway that has sufficient features for Windows 8.  Thanks for any help.



    You buy Vista Ultimate Upgrade language English > install it > then download the Packs of languages via optional updates.

    And Microsoft sells more than Vista or Windows 7.

    Amazon is the only 'safe' to buy it.

    And no matter if you have Vista or Windows 7 Ultimate, you will have to pay for it

    And it seems that your machine is not Compatible Windows 8.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install

  • I installed windows vista home basic 32-bit on my desktop pc coming from my laptop

    Since that what he me locked out of my basic functions in computer science because the key codes don't are aligned with windows, I was originally windows xp home edition, I know that it is wrong to try my office with some purchusing high grade a new version of vista, but I would buy it know and get the new code button to go back to my music, photos and so on. How can I get my activation key code to exit the mode limited functions?

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s XP set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    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.

    That's why we're always checking the availability of compatible devices
    newest & brightest exploitation
    System. Only Dell (or one that makes the printer for Dell
    before it's new wording) can provide the necessary drivers. This is not a
    Problem of Windows 7.
