Depends entirely on this laptop you have. If it has a 64-bit processor
You can use 64-bit Windows. If a 32-bit CPU, you can't.

If you don't know you have, hold down the Windows key and press
Break | Break. It will tell you if you have a 32-bit
processor or 64-bit processor.

  • New Windows 7 pro machine always prints the first page in a direction, but all other pages are printed in a different orientation

    We bought a new PC for one of our employees that is running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. We have several printers throughout our office area. There are three printers that this person will print to the two Ricoh printstations and a Brother Laser printer. Any printer that employee uses printers still print the first page, a focus on the next page and all other pages in the other direction. The first page is always printed in the opposite direction of whatever orientation has been selected.

    If it has a four page document and select landscape as the orientation, the first page prints in portrait orientation while the other three pages will be printed in landscape. She can go back and print the document again and all four pages will be printed in the right direction. This happens no matter which printer she uses, as well as any program (Word 2010, Excel, Adobe, web pages, etc...). Any suggestions?

  • How to open a new window that has a single tab and my home page?

    Ago that I had trouble with my internet access so finally deleted Firefox and reloaded it from scratch. Since then, if I open a new window, I get a lot of tabs open. They seem to be the tabs that I had opened the first time I tried to open a new window instead of the tabs, I have now opened. This means that a new window is slow (about 14 tabs open) and does not even include the tabs that I want to use.

    Say you that, haven't you. Maybe this thread will help? It refers at the start, but maybe that session restore got so messed up that until he restores to each new window?

    Hello

    You can use a magnifying glass and a flashlight to see if you can read the numbers of the product key on the label.

    Or take a picture of it and expand it on the screen.

    ______________________________________________________________

    Also that, read also:

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks and to reinstall the operating system.

    They should do this for a fee, if they still have available to them.

    _____________________________________________________________

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    ____________________________________________________________

    And if you do not score a manufacturer of recovery on your hard drive, you should be able to make your own recovery from her disks to reinstall the operating system.

    Go to programs > name of the manufacturer of your computer > then their system or recovery tools software topics for them, depending on how it is formulated.

    If you can't find any reference to it, contact the manufacturer for advice on how to make these recovery disks.

    The methods above resettlement generally do not require allows you to provide a product key during Installation, the recovery process uses the Installation product key factory to activate automatically during the resettlement process.

  • How can I get a license key for an Express upgrade that has been lost in the Digital Locker service?

    I bought a Vista Ultimate Anytime Upgrade from MS Anytime Upgrade site in 2007. I now need to reinstall after a crash of the PC. However, while I still have the DVD can't get the license key. When I checked on the order confirmation emails, there is a "Digital locker" link for me to recover when necessary - that's why I the have not kept. But when I now try the link there is broken, and browsing the web, it seems that the Digital Locker service no longer exists, so as it is I have no spare key while it is a legitimate purchase?

    I tried to find someone at MS to provide me with a new key - it's a legitimate purchase, fee, directly from a web site of MS, but so far no one has been willing to help. Anyone know who I can contact to get this resolved please?

    Thanks in advance

  • Virus on my computer. Windows Vista has been altered by the virus and my computer does not have a product key

    My computer caught a SERIOUS virus that damaged my beta Windows Vista together. So I've upgraded to Windows 7, however, I have not the key product for Windows Vista or 7. Is it possible to set this up with Windows Vista or 7 because my product key for computers, which was at the back of it, has been erased or worn. There is no name on the back of my laptop sticker saying what product key to use. Thank you!

    What virus? How did you know you had it? You run an anti-virus
    the program? Which one? Is it updated? Why don't you use not to
    remove the virus?

    So I had to upgrade to Windows 7,

    Ugh! The upgrade to a different version of Windows does not remove a virus. In
    did the upgrade when you have a problem is always a bad
    thing to do and will be much more likely to make the problem worse than in
    solve it.

    However, I have not the key product for Windows Vista or 7.

    Where have you upgraded to Windows 7? Upgrade to a
    legitimate version Windows7 is a bad thing, but if you went to one
    a pirated version, it is likely to cause additional problems and you
    are probably in trouble now and need to clean install a
    copy legitimate of some versions of Windows.

    Is there a way to set up in Windows Vista or 7 because
    my product key for computers, which was at the back of it, has
    has been deleted or worn. There is no name on the back of my
    laptop computer sticker saying what product key to use. Thank you!

    The product key on the back of your laptop is for what version of
    Windows it came with and may not be used for all other versions. If you
    don't have a product key for Vista or Windows 7, the laptop
    no doubt supplied with XP. Is this correct?

    If it came with XP, it is very old and it is almost certainly elsewhere
    low power for Windows 7. In addition the drivers you need for Windows
    7 there are almost certainly not, and you will not be able to run
    Windows 7 on it.

    At this point, you are probably in trouble no matter what you do. You
    must reinstall Windows XP itself, but you no longer have your
    product key and you probably haven't a Windows XP CD no more. You
    can try to ask the manufacturer of the laptop to a XP CD and product
    key, but I doubt if you can get at this late date.

    You can buy a copy of Windows 7, but once, you are likely in a way
    low power for the drivers you need and it will be unavailable.

  • I don't want to use the new tab Page. Is there a way I can just get my new tab automatically display Google? I'm sure this has been possible before.

    I already uninstalled the add-on NTP. I can't stand it. The question sums up exactly what I'm trying to accomplish.

    What page you want as the new tab page?

    If you want the website http://www.google.com for example then set the pref browser.newtab.url http://www.google.com

    The default value for the pref is built on: page newtab with the grid 3 x 3 mosaic.

    You can use change in the context menu or jut double-click the pref to change its value.

    I need help restoring Windows Vista on my computer.  Please help this is finals week and I need my computer to take my final.

    Vista recovery media obtain and/or use the Partition Recovery Vista on your computer to the factory settings .

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

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

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

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Also ask them if it is possible to make the recovery disk/s since the Partition of recovery in case of hard drive failure or System Crash when you're back running.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu
