I have a basic problem w / email windows & Vista

I'm not having luck with Windows Vista at all. Recurring problems & everyday, it does not recognize my internet connections so need to back constantly.  At the moment I am unable to do something as simple as creating a group in the Windows email. I use the help, but the example help is any format I see.  Example: you can add a group to my email & there is no comparible toolbar.  I don't see "Add to Contacts or add a new group" & can't find where he was going. I didn't chance since the purchase of my Window XP vs Vista because there too many weird oddities & am very unhappy with him. I feel almost there need availability 24/7 technician home because I cannot fix anything on my own & never had any problem with XP!

  • I don't have the activation code for my Windows Vista.

    OT: activation code.

    I have a computer dell laptop with windows vista. The OS has been corrupted and I had to reinstall Vista.  I lost the original disk, but concluded that a backup I had made when I got the computer. It worked, but I don't have the activation code. I called Dell to ask them to send me disks of software for the software I got when I bought the computer. They are my account, but was told that they no longer support vista. For $200.00, they could get my computer work. I told them it worked. I just need the disc or activation code. They said that Microsoft would not let that happen. I don't know why. I bought the software, when I bought the equipment. It's mine.

    I called Microsoft. Microsoft said that they no longer support Vista. They said buy a new computer or a new copy of Windows. I have four computers, without counting those at work. My other computers use Windows 10. I use the vista computer to play music. I know that I can buy a new computer for 200.00, but the Vista computer is all I need. I have that I just need a code to activate it. Because Microsoft does not sell, does support it, just give me a code. Microsoft tech support guy told me: 'go to the black market on the internet. Do a search for activation codes. I said, OK, given that Dell will not help me with the products that I've bought from them, and Microsoft doesn't help me with the product they make and Microsoft makes me refers to the black market, I guess that's my only option. »

    Recovery Dell disks who buy from Dell are what is recommended when when you lose your product key.

    But you never mention looking for him:

    The COA sticker is either or in the battery compartment on the underside of the laptop.

    With a desktop computer, it's on the side, the back or the top of the computer case.

    If you need a disc to use this product key with:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    I have a DELL Inspiron 6400 running Windows Vista. The backlight turns off when the charger is plugged after about 10 to 15 minutes. If I shine a torch on the screen, I see about the display is always. If I select change user from the menu start or stop / restart the machine, the backlight turns on and will last for another 10 to 15 minutes. I tried in safe mode and the same thing happens. Can someone help me with this problem?

    It could be the inverter Board or the backlight itself on the way to the outside. Whatever it is, it is definitely a hardware problem and it will take a good repairman to fix. You can contact Dell and see what they would charge to fix this, just to see if it would be more cost-effective to buy a new laptop or have it repaired. Because it is 5 years since it is manufacturing, you can be better to save your pennies for a new :-(

    Installation - 'upgrade' means what?
    Upgrade means that you can install Windows 7 simply by inserting the Windows 7 upgrade software in the DVD drive of your PC and follow the instructions on the screen. While you are not required to backup and reinstall your files, or reinstall your programs, it is a very good idea to back up your files and settings before you start any upgrade to the software. Get more information on the software updates and best practices .

    Installation - what does "Custom (Clean)" Mean?
    A custom (clean) installation clears the contents of the hard drive of your PC. Your files, settings, and programs will not be transferred to Windows 7. This means that to install Windows 7, you must:

    • Back up any files and settings you want to keep

    • Install Windows 7

    • Reinstall all your files

    • Reinstall all the programs you want to use.

    These four steps take time, skills, techniques and Windows Easy Transfer can help. However, if you are not comfortable with this process, please consider having the installation carried out by a local service provider.

  • I have no product key for my windows vista... I need help... pleaze!


    I have no product key for my windows vista... I need help... pleaze!

    If Windows Vista is already installed on your system and your system still works (even if only in safe mode) so you can be lucky.  There is a product called Belarc Advisor: http://www.belarc.com/free_download.html which can be installed on your system and can retrieve the product key in the system files (only Vista does not provide this feature).

    If you can not enter your system, it has already been formatted or something like that, there is very little that can be done.  There is no place that keeps a record of the product keys related to individuals (or computers) that can be checked and Microsoft will not give without proof of purchase product keys (which IS the key product - the sales receipt or even the disc itself is not enough).  You can't even borrow a disk from someone else because you need your product key to activate the program.  The only choice is to buy another product (you'll probably need a commercial full version as an upgrade will not work on a non-production system or one where you cannot install a product allowing to level).

    You can TRY to get Microsoft to activate your system without a product key if you have the disk (there are codes on the disc, which mean it is valid or not), but I doubt it will work but may be worth a try.  To activate manually, go to start, search, and type in slui 4 enter.  Enter your country and press Next.  You will be on a screen with a phone number and a bunch of codes below.  Dial the number and browse automatic guests until you get to a human being.  Have your handy product code because it will be asked.  Explain that you have lost your product key, but the disc and it's the same PC.  They can give you a code to enter on this screen to activate Vista (or they have very probably you will say you are out of luck and they can not help you).

    I hope this helps.

    Good luck! Lorien - MCSA/MCSE/network + / A +.

  • I have a serial number valid for windows Vista Home Basic, but my hard drive crashed and I have no way to re - install vista on my computer. I am looking for a download so I can do it.

    Basically, I installed windows 2000 on my machine and I can't find a download for windows vista home basic that doesn't have some kind of crack or keygen. I want a legal copy not a hack. I have the serial number supplied with my computer. where can I find this download or get a drive.

    Here are all LEGAL for Vista:

    How to get Vista recovery Media or the Vista recovery Partition on your computer back to 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.

    Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    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

    Hi ronnieVron,

    Your copy of Windows is only allowed for 'a machine If you want to put Vista Edition home premium on your 'old laptop"you can buy a new copy of Vista premium. Another point is that copies of Windows was probably preinstalled on your laptop, which means that, putting license on one side, your copy is related to each specific laptop and so, because the copy is related to the material on each laptop, you would have problems on other transfer machine. Anyway you could invalidate your Windows license.
