never had a disc of windows vista with the new laptop and no option to make a recovery disk, and I need to format my laptop to factory / clean, help!

How to get Vista recovery Media and/or to use the Vista recovery Partition on your computer.

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 way of doing 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

  • I can't install 64-bit Windows Vista with the help of an old license of a dead computer?

    Old license Windows Vista on the new computer

    I have a Windows Vista Ultimate license that came with my 32-bit laptop and I have a new 64 bit laptop. Can I install Windows Vista 64-bit using the old license? I already threw the old laptop, and so I won't use the license in addition to a laptop computer.

    You can tranfer commercial versions, but not the OEM versions. An OEM version is only intended to be used on the computer that it is installed first. It is likely that the old license is an OEM version.

  • Windows Vista install the new WD hard drive empty - does not not :(

    It was my original question: http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware/HP-Pavillion-a6645f-No-hard-drive-detected-BIOHD-2-err...

    And now...

    I got my CD of HP recovery and ordered a new WD 500 GB HDD... same features as the seagate who pooped me and I can't get windows install on the new HD

    No matter what I do, computer wants to open the Recovery Manager and according to the available procedure does not work.  It works me in circles asking for #1 drive, then the drive recovery supplement and back with no progress.

    What I have to do is use this form: http://vistahomepremium.windowsreinstall.com/installnewhdd/installnewhdd.htm but only the Recovery manager opens when I boot from the CD.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    If I followed your questions correctly... you had a BIOHD-2 error, ordered HP recovery discs, replaced the hard drive and tried to restore your system with no luck. Is that a correct assessment of the situation?

    OK, you need to make a Windows Vista install screen... not who's going to go with your HP recovery CD/DVD. The disks do not contain the Windows installation routine, only the HP Recovery Manager. These discs contain more or less, an image of the HP installed OS and software, plus some drivers and applications. To the best of my knowledge, you should have three DVDs (1 of 3, 2 of 3 and 3/3) more an additional drive. You should boot from CD 1 of 3... Then, when asked to insert the 2/3... Then, when asked to insert 3/3. And finally if/when necessary additional drive.

  • Free disc of Premiere Elements with the new camera. Installed on the pc and have shortcuts for items and items first. The serial No. work with Premiere Elements, but not Photoshop Elements. Why is this?

    Hi, I'm new to this bear so please with me. I have a free disc of Premiere Elements with a new canon camera and install it on my pc windows 8.1. After installation I have a shortcut for first elements and a shortcut for the elements, I guess that first for the video and photo elements. The drive came with a serial No. who worked with first, but when I opened elements, he asked for a serial No. but when I tried the same series only.  It says this serial No. is not valid for Adobe photoshop elements. I'm something wrong, I am missing a serial number, do I have to pay to use the side elements (photo editor), and if so I don't understand why he loaded the two programs on a disk I thought it was a big split in video and photo program.

    Help, please.

    Photoshop elements and first elements are two different programs (as you know).  they have different serial numbers used to activate them.

    If you were supposed to get both with your camera, you should have two serial numbers: quickly find your serial number

    However, is it possible that you had only to get a serial number of elements first and photoshop elements was provided as a trial (to see if you want to buy a serial number)?

    All in one, type printers (print, copy, scan) usually have a very specific set of instructions during the installation.  If not followed exactly the probability is that the scanner will not work.

  • Need help to make my printer work with the new laptop.

    I just bought a laptop ACER Aspire V5-571. At the Windows experience index. Intel (R) core, 64-bit. My current project is gettting my 2005 Dell all-in - one 944 to work with my new laptop. I passed on the line and installed the recommended driver and used the printer to scan a document I then sent an email, but for some reason my computer any it will not print a page from an online account. Keeps saying needs of troubleshooting and I need to download the driver, which I did, a Vista 7 64-bit-compatible driver. How can I make this work? or what other driver or update do I need?

    It seems that Vista drivers are the latest Dell has provided.  I noticed that, they say, you have to install all the drivers for this device before installing the Vista (s).  I found the link depending on whether you should check out

    http://support.Dell.com/support/topics/global.aspx/support/KCS/document?&docid=270659&doclang=en

    Some older printers have no Windows 7 drivers, but usually the work of those of Vista.  If they are not, you can use XP mode if you have the professional or Enterprise version of Windows 7 Ultimate.  If you have the Home Premium version, you can use him anytime upgrade to professional for $90.  Of course to buy a new printer is always an option too.

    As you probably know, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide drivers.  Many manufacturers have refused to provide any Windows 7 drivers for older devices.

    Good luck.

  • Firefox 5 is not compatible with the FAFSA site and I need to access NOW

    I am running Windows XP. I just upgraded to Firefox 5, and I need to go to the FAFSA website. Immediately. I find that, according to this site, there is an inconsistency with what anyone greater than 3.5 or 3.6. I can't find an earlier version of Mozilla to install instead of the new. THIS IS PRODUCED WHENEVER MOZILLA "IMPROVES".
    I tried to install Internet Explorer instead because it's compatible. Surprise, surprise, Mozilla doesn't let me install it. Help me ASAP please.

    Windows comes with Internet Explorer, integrated and practically installable. You should have another look.

    If all else fails, you should be able to download Google Chrome or Opera. You might be able to use them directly or you should be able to install Internet Explorer with Opera or Chrome - check the compatible version numbers.

    I sent one FAFSA email telling them that they are updated at least three behind.

  • Constant BSOD with the new laptop computer

    I bought a laptop Dell L521X are three or four weeks ago, and since then have had difficulties with the projection of thing regularly blue on me at arbitrary points. Those initial seemed to result from McAfee LiveSafe who settled on the laptop so I uninstalled this and these people arrested. However, since then he has been giving me an error called DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE he says is caused by ntoskrnl.exe. Blue screens seem to happen arbitrarily and not because of anything specific I'm doing on the laptop. It will almost always crash when it is in "standby", however, and a few times he broke down while I'm closing. I updated both drivers and BIOS, hoping that would solve the problem but neither helped. I thought that it could be a hardware problem but all the Dell diagnostics, I came back with nothing. I've been futzing with the thing for a while now trying to figure out what it is but I'm stumped. If someone wants to look at the crash dump files I the downloaded in a zip here: [x]

    I really want to fix this because I don't want to take over the laptop. I bought the thing because I had problems with my old, and here I will once more in trouble with the new! I hope you guys can help me. Thank you!

    DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (d1)

    This indicates that a kernel-mode driver attempted to access pageable memory with a high IRQL.

    A driver tried to access a pageable (or that is completely invalid) address while the IRQL was too high. This bug check is usually caused by drivers who used a wrong address.

  • Restart the error for Windows Vista with the recovery disk

    I bought a Toshiba Satellite A355D-S6889 about two years ago. It came with Windows Vista. I subscribed to Norton AntiVirus and it totally messed up the computer. We lived with a duration of 5 to 10 minutes from start-up. In addition, many programs crash and it takes a lot of time for anything to work. I decided to for a recovery and a restore using the disks provided with the laptop. I followed the instructions, but it keeps hanging up on the second disc.

    I tried to use a method that I found searching for forums (restart the computer by pressing '0', but I got lost on the loading cycle.) I'm not very strong programming and I guess when a CD provided by the company must be used for recovery, it should work.  All my programs were legitimate, I want just my OS back so that I can use my computer.

  • I just had to activate my Windows Vista via the phone. Can I do it again the next time I have reformat my computer?

    I once invited by Microsoft to activate my windows vista using phone... Thus, you will be asked to activate windows vista by using phone next time I have reformat my laptop?

    It is likely, but maybe not.

    Sometimes the internet activation works but stops working if you activate the product too expensive.

    For example, I reinstalled Windows and Office 5 times (on the same computer) in 2 weeks before and the activation of the internet has stopped working so I had to activate by phone.

    However a few months later the line internet activation reworked.
