Hello

Here are the different ways to reinstall vista

Contact the computer manufacturer and ask them to send you to vista recovery disks to reinstall the operating system back as it was when you bought it

they do it for a nominal cost of $

also ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to get back to the way you bought

you would normally press F10 or F11 or Alt + F10, 0 at startup to start the recovery process according to the manufacturer

Ask them of the exact key sequence

or borrow a microsoft dvd vista

Make sure that you borrow the correct 32-bit or 64-bit microsoft dvd to your computer

they contain all versions of vista

This is the product key that determines which version of vista is installed

  • I have CS6 for Windows Vista. I can't see the images.

    Everytime I open a new file, or open an existing image, the image looks like gray blocks little, and I do not see the image. It shows the image of the thumbnail, and it shows that I scored through on the tile, but I don't see anything on the image. It's like trying to edit a picture of a polar bear in a snow storm. What can I do to change this? I have reset the preferences, but nothing works.

    Hello

    Most likely the graphics card driver is to blame.

    If you go to Edit > Preferences > Performance and uncheck the box Use Graphics Processor , and then restart photoshop, that makes a difference?

    If the works above, then you should try to update the driver for your (video) graphics card on the site of manufacturers of brand of card you have.

    (Nvidia.  AMD (ATI Radeon) or Intel)

    In this way, you can activate use graphics processor on and the features of the gpu in photoshop cs6.

    Hello

    If Vista is preinstalled contact the Manufacter computer and ask them to send recovery discs; what they should do for a small fee.

    And ask them if you have a recovery partition on your hard drive to reinstall the operating system to how it was when new.

    If you have not deleted this partition (you tell how wipe you the hard drive!) you press F10 or F11, etc at startup to start the process of relocation.

    Ask the manufacturer for their combination of button to do this, if it is always an option for you.

    How you installed Vista as an upgrade on XP or to perform a new installation? Did you use the installation of a media installation upgrading or complete dvd or did you by TechNet or MSDN subscription paying there?

    With or without a dvd, you must enter the product key that was included with the media or have bought and downloaded via the store Ms. The product key is usually on the plastic case, the dvd of Vista arrives or accompanies electronic download and is that you enter during the installation/update level or when you use the control panel > system > change the product key to see active Windows.

    You'll need a product key valid for the edition in question that you are now going to run.
