Need to restore disc for Windows Vista Home Premium

original title: need to restore the disc for Windows Vista Home Premium on Pavilion dv2000 laptop wiped out by Staples!

Had clips to make a diagnosis and PC tune-up. Apparently everything was fine, until I refused to let them upgrade my Pavilion dv2000 with Windows Vista Edition Home Premium to Windows 7. Don't know what they did, but now I get a black screen and cannot access the laptop at all. Is there a cure?

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 do the 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.

See you soon.

    Hello

    You can't reinstall Vista on a recovery partition you have installed another operating system

    read this:

    Solve a common problem of recovery.
    If the original operating system is changed to a non - Vista OS, the Recovery Manager cannot be launched either office or by pressing f11 at startup. You can use the recovery disk to restore the computer to the original state of Vista. If you are using a non - Vista OS, you can use a third-party partition management program to recover hard disk space.

    Contact the manufacturer of the laptop computer 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 $

    Hello

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

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

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

  • Valid product key for Windows Vista Home Premium

    So I recently brought a computer gateway two months ago with Windows Vista pre-installed on my computer. He had a problem some time ago, and a friend fixed my computer for me but in order for him to correct that he had to hold the operating system (Windows Vista) power off and turn it back on. I don't know what else he did to remedy, but it was working fine when I came back. He worked for several weeks to date. When I switch it on now the windows activation said windows ' windows vista home premium product key you typed is invalid for activation "options to solve this problem are the following:

    Access your computer with reduced functionality - this option logs not me in all takes me on the website of windows and asks me to buy new vista
    OR
    Type a different product key - this option only allow me to enter some characters of my product key.
    OR
    Contact dell to help solve this problem

    The laptop will now only let me use the laptop internet for searching the help/customer support. I tried manually stop, however at startup comes once again with the same error. I don't know how to fix this problem, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I called the manufacturer and microsoft, but the two keep me referring to eachother, and I continue to revolve around callling in round two, nothing has been solved and no one gave me answers or resolutions

  • Ive got a question for Windows Vista Home Premium? Please read.

    When I bought a computer 2 years ago, is it came with Windows Vista Home Premium reinstall cd. The computer that comes with it is a gateway Gt5411E and im wondering if the installation cd will work on a new build machine what im doing right now. Thanks for the help

    This record is for the gateway only computer.

    Read this:

    If your computer is pre-installed with Vista, it is classified as an OEM license and is not transferable.

    The license of Vista OEM is related to the original computer it is installed on and dies with the computer.
    You cannot transfer it to another computer/laptop

    If a license of Vista at retail, you can transfer it to another computer/laptop.
    But it can only be installed on one computer at a time.

    A single license is a single Installation.

    You have purchased an Express upgrade. Windows 7 Anytime Upgrades are only intended to upgrade an existing edition of Windows 7 to a higher edition, example: Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional or ultimate edition.

    When important changes to your computer, for example an upgrade, it is always recommended that you back up your system before installing a new version of Windows. In your case, you can upgrade to Windows 7 depending on the edition and the architecture of Windows Vista, you have installed. If you are running a 32-bit version of Vista and upgrade to a 64-bit (Windows 7 edition) version, you'll have a pure make install, it is the opposite case.

    If you are using Windows Vista Home Basic or Premium consumer editions, you can only upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate. In addition, you can make downgrades, which means, if you are running Windows Vista Ultimate Edition now, you cannot downgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium. You perform logical upgrades:

    Windows Vista Home Basic > Windows 7 Home Basic, Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Edition Home Premium > Windows 7 Home Premium or Ultimate

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Professional, enterprise or ultimate edition

    Windows Vista Business > Windows 7 Enterprise

    Windows Vista Ultimate > Windows 7 Ultimate.

  • Menu toolbar problem and start for windows vista Home premium 64-bit

    I've recently been tweaking and accidentally got rid of my explorer.exe file, (I think that I sent to my trash and maybe deleted it?). Once I realized that I just typed as a new task and it reappeared.  The problem I have is that since then I had no toolbar or start menu.  I tried to access it through the control panel that does not work; I tried Ctrl Esc, which does not work, I tried everything I can think of? What's weird, that's all my desktop icons are great, and for some reason if I have Ghost click my mouse in the lower right of the screen I open random programs usually on my toolbar, I can even drag on my desk.  I tried to find common ground, if my toolbar is there somewhere?, do to slide it back on my screen, but it was done without success.  Another thing is when I start my computer in safe mode, my toolbar appears with my Start menu icon?  Anyone know what may be the problem?  I am running windows vista family premium. operating system: 64-bit
