  • I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium installed. My plan is to install Win 7 and then move on to Win 10.

    Original title: Vista to Win 7 to win 10

    I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium installed.  My plan is to install Win 7 and then move on to Win 10.  I have a new full version of Windows 7 Pro SP1 with an activation key.  I have experience update to Win 10 of Win 7, but worry about the installation of Win 7 over Vista.  I guess I have to do a clean install.  There is no problem to meet the minimum requirements of 10.  Can someone give me some advice on the start-up of the conversion of Win 7?  Just insert the disk?  Everything has been backed up and it's ready to go!  Thank you.

    Since the family migration to Windows Vista Premium to Windows 7 Professional it will install a clean place, why not simply use your Windows 7 Professional product key to perform a custom Windows 10 Pro install from the go?

    I don't see the need to bother installing Windows 7 Professional.

  • I have ACER Aspire V3 - 574 G - 7198 and I would like to know what size of RAM can handle my motherboard?

    I have ACER Aspire V3 - 574 G - 7198 and I would like to know what size of RAM can handle my motherboard? I know that the my processor can handle up to 16 GB of RAM, now I have installed only 4 GB of RAM (original), but I want to update to 12 GB of RAM. I want to know if my motherboard can handle?

    I have received and read your private message. Yes, you can install 8 GB + 4 GB (current module). They will work at 1600 instead of 800 MHz (single channel). You will see the difference!

    Here are the compatible memory modules:

    If you have the budget, I recommend buying a set of 16 GB (2x8Gb).

    Hello:

    It can be easily done by purchasing a version upgrade of Windows 7 retail box.

    Home Premium

    http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16832116713

    Pro

    http://www.Newegg.com/product/product.aspx?item=N82E16832116714

    These packages contain a 32 and 64 bit version of the operating system.

    The license may also be transferred to another PC who is eligible for an upgrade, unlike an OEM license.

    The problem is having XP or Vista installed on the PC to use the disk.

  • I have a HP laptop with vista that no longer starts.

    I have a HP laptop with vista that no longer starts. I get the initial screen of HP and can access the configuration, but after that, all I get is a black screen with a blinking cursor. I ran the diagnostic test on my hard drive and it happened, but my computer still does not start.

    Hi Shannon6836,

    1. Since when are you facing this problem?
    2. you remember to make changes to the computer before the question?

    3. are you able to boot in safe mode?

    See the methods mentioned below and check if that helps.

    Method 1:

    Start your computer in safe mode
     
    If you are able to start in safe mode, follow the steps mentioned below to complete the restore of the system:
     
    Note: System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos. You can only restore files that you have deleted if you have made backups of these files.
     
    Method 2:
     
    I suggest you to disconnect all devices external one except keyboard and mouse and try to start your computer and check if it helps.

    Method 3:

    I also suggest you perform a startup repair and check if this solves the problem.

    Follow the steps below:

    a. Please insert the Windows Vista DVD and restart the computer.

    b. when we are invited to press a key to boot from the DVD, please press enter or the SPACEBAR.
    c. choose your language settings, and then click Next.
    d. click repair your computer.
    e. Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
    f. in the System Recovery Options menu, click on the Startup Repair. Startup Repair can invite you to make choices as it tries to solve the problem, and if necessary, it may restart your computer, because it makes the repairs.
     
     
    If the Startup Repair tool is an option of recovering preinstalled on your computer:
    a. remove all floppy disks, CDs, and DVDs from your computer, and then restart your computer.

    Restart the computer

    b. do one of the following:
    i. If your computer has a single operating system installed, press and hold the F8 key as your computer restarts. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears. If the Windows logo appears, you need to try again by waiting until the Windows logon prompt appears, and then stop and restart your computer.

    II. If your computer has more than one operating system, use the arrow keys to select the operating system you want to repair, and then press and hold F8.
    III. in the display Advanced Startup Options , use the arrow keys to select repair your computerand press ENTER. (If repair your computer is not listed as an option, then your computer does not include startup as a preinstalled recovery option repair).
    IV. Select a keyboard layout, and then click Next.
    v. Select a username and enter the password, and then click OK.
    VI. in the System Recovery Options menu, click Startup Repair. Startup Repair can invite you to make choices as it tries to solve the problem and, if necessary, it may restart your computer, because it makes the repairs.
    Access the link below for more information on the Startup Repair:

  • My games suddenly stopped working on my laptop with vista SP 2 after a single pass?

    Ideas: I use a Gateway laptop with vista Home premium sp 2, AMD turion x 2 dual core x 64 bit, fitted an ATI HD 3200 graphics card. (The card is built-in.) He is more than capable of handling the Dead Space, Bioshock, big chase and combat arms and run each of them perfectly at maximum quality, except for dead space, which had to be alleviated a little to improve the speed and responsiveness.

    • Programs: Borderlands, Dead Space, Bioshock, Grand Chase, Combat arms.
    • No error message. Games freeze just to the preloader or splash screen. The processes are still ongoing, but there is no game window or the game got stuck on splash screen. (I have to 'end of process' to stop smoking completely.)
    • Recent changes made to your computer: just closed, each of these games after their execution 1 time, and they would not work again. Problem occurred after a standard, so that could have linked somehow.
    • What you have already tried to solve the problem: compatibility, analysis antivirus, cleaning Mode, running in as long as administrator, disabling firewall, protection against viruses, disabling the registry Disabling UAC, each administrator, update drivers for graphics card, system update, reinstall everything THAT I can think of who could fix this problem.
    • NOTE: I ran these games on another computer and they work fine. A solution to this issue has completely escaped me.

    Have you tried to reinstall or update your directX? or your visual c ++ Redistributable files? Sometimes, if this stuff is corrupted (and you won't know until you start a game generally because it stops working) and you need to reinstall such things.

  • HP laptop with vista

    I have a HP laptop with vista and when you try to start I get a disk failure hard error 0301... the hard drive is still just working trying to get off the files until it is too late, but the system startup repair prevents me to reboot... any help would be apprieciated, thank you...

    Probably need to make the drive of the machine, connect it to an external USB adapter and get things off that way.

    Or start on an Ubuntu or other stuff OS CD/DVD and copy bootable on the local hard drive.

  • I have a laptop on vista home-use. When you look in Control Panel - be uninstall, should there be several entries for SQL server, or one or none?

    I have a laptop on vista home-use.  When you look in the control panel - and then to uninstall, should there be several entries for SQL server, or one or none?  Each entry seems to have a different digital denotation, but apparently I should have only one entry maximum.

    The reason that I ask is that I have had problems in the software.  I want to uninstall everything that is not supposed to be there.

    Some lines of programs listed show information... some lines are completed.

    When you click on a line that is complete, I am allowed the usuall to uninstall, options etc.

    When you click on a line that is not complete, I'm not allowed the option uninstall.

    The Compact Edition and the full SQL Server can be installed at the same time without any problems. I saw SQL Server2005 apparently installed by a manufacturer, perhaps to support some software they have grouped in. He could have an Acer.

    I do not know what cause the problem with the uninstall option is not available. Information to fill in these fields are in the registry.

    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall if you want to watch.

    It could be the result of a broken uninstall or a bad registry cleaner. I'm not aware of anything that would fix this. You can try this http://support.microsoft.com/mats/Program_Install_and_Uninstall

    but you may have to reinstall programs later.

    You need two redistributable Visual C++ if you have programs that need it, which is likely. They had several updates that fits into the list programs. I have two for 2005 and six for 2008.
