Don't have a motherboard - > new motherboard + upgrade version of Vista problems ==

My Asus motehrboard failed. I replaced it today, but of course the new Asus motherboard has all different chipsets etc.. I tried to start the original installation in safe mode, but it crashes after he tries to load a file sys (diskcrc.sys memory).

Ok. I was expecting that. Perform a new installation. However, my copy of Vista Home Premium is an upgrade version. When I try to install it, he insists on the fact that I do after the start of my existing operating system, which is down.

Now, I'm in a catch-22.

Any thoughts?

You can not legally do a clean install with an upgrade/license disc.

Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a set of operating system recovery disk/s original.

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

Then install the original operating system > upgrade to Vista.

    I'm sorry, but you will need a Windows 9 x / ME drive to provide during the XP installation from the XP disc is a version upgrade. There is no way around that. See if you can find a friend with an older operating system disk (not a recovery disk) to support qualification. Otherwise, you would need to buy the full version (not upgrade) of XP to install on the computer. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

    Hi brets49833316,

    If you have purchased Adobe Acrobat Pro DC as an upgrade, then a serial number of the previous version which you have like Acrobat X or XI. If in the case where you have not bought one of these in the past, then you must buy Acrobat Pro DC as full version (US $449.00).

    In this scenario, you can return the version upgrade and purchase the full version. To return the Contact Customer Service

  • How can I perform a new installation if I don't have an installation or a backup disk. Vista is on my laptop when I bought it and there is no installation disc.

  • Try to restore the data file, get error 'you don't have permission to save in this location"in Vista

    I am new to Windows Vista, but relatively competent in older versions. I installed the software on my new desktop computer. I am the only user on this computer and I have administrative rights. I installed the software in the Program Files directory. In the software, there is a folder for the working data file. I now try to 'restore' my data on this new computer file so that I can start working. I get an error message that says "you don't have permission to save in this location. Contact an administrator. "I have considered similar questions on this site and followed the advice to take possession of the file without success. I also created a new folder on the D drive, thinking maybe Vista I just wanted to keep C clean, but it gives me the same message. I can't save to the folder I created. Any advice?

    Program Files is a protected directory. If possible you create the working folder for the data in your user account instead. Is it possible in the options of the program the program in a directory of your user account? Or, if you think that any other user you may need to use this program, you could create the directory Public. MS - MVP - Elephant Boy computers - don't panic!

  • 9790 blackBerry smartphones don't have load not (new unpacking)

    Tried to read all the forums. But it will not load. No laptop or the wall charger. No red light no lights, nothing. It has been 2 hours up to now, can I have a problem with the battery of the phone? I've never had this problem with my Curve 8520 when it was brand new, I just plugged into the wall, and allume turned on at the same time, then let it charge overnight.

    Is this a fault with all the bold, I saw this question posted many times, but usually for a phone that has been used quite a bit.

    HMM. SOLVED. For the time being?

    WHAT I DID:

    Took the cover on the back, put my nail between the bottom of the phone and battery and battery pushed up so that the top of the stack was closer to the top of the phone/the battery connector terminals. There his work, lit so far and its load. I hope this isn't a design defect where this problem will be back often. Design defect being that there are too many game/room where the battery in the phone that it loses its close connection to the terminals. Will transfer if anything else develops. For now, I'll turn off let it load for the day before I turned again to continue setting up and move my 8520 to it.

  • This may be a very stupid question, but I don't have the "button new tab" displayed on my tab bar. Can you advise me how can I enable this feature? I've searched around, but I am unable to find any ifo. on that. Thank you, Terry

    I just want to know how to get the "button new tab" displayed on the tab bar.

    Try this:

    View > toolbars > customize

    and see if the 'New tab' button is there. If this is the case, make it slide and put it anywhere you want.

  • should I have the product key to upgrade xp to vista

    My wife son died and she got her computer but no cd has no product key for xp install.do, I need a upgrade product key to custom computer Vista.the built.don't where he is a few years old. Thank you

    Just create an Image backup of XP (before you upgrade) on an external USB drive. Then, whenever you may need to reinstall just Vista restore XP using the Image backup.

    (I think you'll find that Windows 7 is a better choice then Vista in the transition from XP to a newer version of Windows).

    Also if it built the computer then you will find the product key using a key finder utility. Download and run one of the utilities listed below.

    One final note: after you upgrade to Vista or Windows 7, you will have to install the device drivers. Go to the web site support motherboard manufactures, locate the correct mother by part number, download the appropriate drivers for Vista or Windows 7 to a folder, copy it to a USB flash /thumb. Then install after the upgrade.

  • I don't have the option extract in my version of Dreamweaver CC 2014 for Mac

    I just installed Dreamweaver CC 2014 for Mac and I have the "excerpt" option anywhere. It does not appear in the menu window, and pressing cmd + K does nothing.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the screenshot. Yes, you are not on the updated version. You can get it from the creative clouds.

    Launch Adobe Creative cloud and go to the Apps section and install it from there.

    I hope this helps.

  • which is the easiest way to find the version of the motherboard to download its drivers when his need, when you don't have the manual of the motherboard

    Hello

    I knew that finding ITU version of motherboard or chipset to download the drivers of it .you must click pause / break key on startup then the computer wil show just like the version of the motherboard bios.

    I just tried on my computer to start, to see if it works, I pressed pause/break on start up button to see if it is really to give me the information about the version of the motherboard, but it seems nothing happen. I tried it on my desktop and on my laptop by pressing the pause/break key to reboot but it seems nothing happen .no information about the version of the motherboard.

    I looked in the bios, but there is also no information on the type of card mother and version (or chipset).

    I looked in system information, but there is also no information on the type of motherboard and version.

    so my question now is if you do not have the manual of the motherboard (I know on laptops, that the version of the motherboard is written on the back of it) that way someone may know the motherboard type and version to be able to download the drivers of it if it wil really necessary.

    I just ask this question because I started working with computer repair work.

    Thank you

  • I don't have that PP upgrade DVD Cs6 Cs3, I need to reinstall in a new machine, how can I do this without disc cs6

    I have used PP since 1.5 I am now on CS6, but 3 recent updates have been on DVDs of upgrade. Now I need to remove and reinstall the Prime Minister. How can I do this without disc CS6. I can't reinstall CS3 and do the updates individually as CS3 was for Win XP and I'm not sure it would work. Is there a dept in Adobe I can contact (no phone number) to get a DVD CS6. Thank you for any assistance.

    Adobe has made this process much simpler in recent years.

    No need to re - install any version prior to the current version (CS6). All installers (upgrade or full) contain the complete program code. The difference between the full and upgrade is in the serial number.

    All you need to do is download (link below) and install CS6, indicate the number of the CS6 upgrade then enter CS5 serial number (although this is also an upgrade).

    Download the CS6 products
