Qosmio E15: How to upgrade Media Center 2002 SP1 to SP2?


My Qosmio E15-AV101 was shupped with Media Center 2002 SP1. I did the automatic update from Microsoft and also downloaded the SP2 package. Still, the upgrade process fails. When I'm tired, I contacted MS technical assistance for the reason my Media center rejecting the upgrade. Microsoft replyed than the version supplied with Toshiba and other equipment manufacturers are customized to match the hardware manufacturer full compatibility.
Notes of this part of the OEM and Microsoft agreement is to allow Original Equipment Manufacturer support for the products they have installed on a particular computer. The agreement was presented only the OEM often change and pre-install Microsoft software on their computers to ensure compatibility and to take full advantage of your computer s hardware. This means that the OEM has expertise on your Microsoft software on your computer in particular works.

So, is the solution to my problem. How to upgrade?



First of all it is a user to user forum and you won't find anyone from Toshiba.
Secondly, as far as I know that your device was designed for an American market and if you are looking for drivers or updates you must use a Web from Toshiba site we:

If you have any problems with your unit, so you must contact the ASP (authorized service partner Toshiba) in your country.

As far as I know that Windows Vista is not official on the market. Maybe the end of the year or next year.
I can t believe that you are not available to install the updates. I checked a few comments and Microsoft updates have always worked.

As I suggested at the beginning if you have some problems with your unit has so contact the service of Toshiba.

    Don't worry man. Everything is ok! You have a MCE 2005 version

    You have simply checked versions MCE in the wrong way!
    If you want to check the MCE versions open media center, click on "settings", then click "about media center". The version of MCE will appear.

    Before purchasing Windows 7, follow these steps:

    Go to your computer / computer laptop manufacturer Web site and see if Windows 7 drivers are available for your make and model computer / laptop.

    If this is not available, Windows 7 will not properly work for you.

    Run the "Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor.

    The list file you most often is a process associated with Norton 360. However, malware is sometimes assumed the names of the legitimate files in order to deceive the end user. Norton is a Devourer of known system and as a result, I wouldn't be surprised to learn that he is a legitimate file in your case. However, I recommend you download, to update and scan with Malwarebytes and Superantispyware, just to be sure. If the scans do not detect the file and the problem persists I would contact Norton or remove Norton making sure to use the tool to uninstall do.

  • Windows XP Media Center 2002 - RUNDLL error message; "Error loading c:\WINDOWS/svacaciz.dll".

    I have Windows XP Media Center 2002 and implementing on the road, I get a RUNDLL error message; 'Error loading c:\WINDOWS/svacaciz.dll - the specified module was not e' Please HELP

    It is easy to get rid of the error message by doing something like disable the startup item in msconfig (if you can still find), but I suggest you fix the problem and difficulty not only the symptom of the problem simply remove the startup message.
    I would recommend also you start to search in the register, unless you have a backup because there is no 'Cancel' or 'quit without saving changes' option in regedit.  If you make a mistake, that's all.
    These ideas relieve 'rapid' and sometimes risky of the symptom, but may not actually solve the problem.  Also, I'd be suspicious of ideas that begin with the words "try."  You don't need to try things, you need to fix things.
    Here are the detailed instructions that protect you and solve your problem in the 'right' way.
    There is very little. DLL files that should be loaded from the C:\WINDOWS folder and is not one of them.
    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira
    !, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, MSE, Comodo, etc..
    A "Cannot find...". ', ' Failed to start..., "Could not load..." ». "Might not work... "" Cannot run ""error loading... ". "or"specific module could not be found"message at startup is usually related to the malware that has been configured to run at startup, but the referenced file has been removed after a malware scan, leaving behind him a startup item or the registry entry pointing to a file that does not exist.
    It might be a removal of malicious software or an application not installed.  The entry may have a curious looking name since it was probably generated at random when the malware was installed. If you search your system for the referenced file, you may not find.
    Windows attempts to load this file but cannot locate because the file has been deleted for most probably during an analysis of the malware. However, an orphaned associate of remainders of startup parameter or registry entry and tells Windows to load the file when you start or connection.
    So you should delete the referenced entry Windows stop trying to load or run the file. It may or may not be included in the registry, but you can find it.  Autoruns (see below) you get the elements no matter where it is.
    If you just locate and uncheck the item in msconfig, which disables the element but does not remove the reference to the element of false starting your computer.   The msconfig program is not a Startup Manager, that's a troubleshooting tool.  Disabling things in msconfig to put an end to the messages and think that your problem is solved is short-sighted and leave behind him a sloppy XP configuration.  Just disable the display of a start-up error message should not count as a 'solution' to the problem.
    If you are comfortable editing the registry, you can find and remove the reference directly from there or remove it using a popular third-party tool called Autoruns.  The problem can always be found in the registry well.
    Before making any changes to your registry by hand or with third-party tools, don't forget to first make a backup of the registry. There is no cancellation or exit without saving the option in regedit.
    Here is a link to a popular registry backup tool:
    You can use Autoruns to find the element of start remains little matter where he's hiding.  Autoruns does not install anything on your computer.  It will display all startup locations where the reference may be then you can turn it off or remove it completely.  Here is the download link for Autoruns:
    Run Autoruns.exe and wait that he at the end of the filling of the list of entries.
    When the Autoruns is finished scanning your system, it will say "Ready" in the lower left corner.  Autoruns can be a little intimidating to first if you have never seen it before because it displays a lot of information.  You are really interested only a few sections.
    The problem is usually to start the system or the user startup entries, then click the connection tab and see if the startup item is there.
    Scroll through the list and look for a boot entry associated files in the error message.
    If you can't find on the connection tab, look in any tab.
    Right-click on the offending entry and choose Remove.  If you are not sure what it is, you can simply disable, restart and if the problem is resolved and then remove the offending entry
    .  If you don't see it in Autoruns, you may edit the registry and remove the item from your startup folder it.  Autoruns shall display the same information however.
    Given that you had or have an infection, followed with this:
    Perform scans for malware, and then fix any problems:
    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:
    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/
    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.
    Restart your computer and solve the outstanding issues.

    Do not guess what the problem might be - understand and resolve it. I need YOUR voice and the points for helpful answers and propose responses. I'm saving for a pony!

  • I have Media Center 2002 and upgrade to 2006. How can I do?

    I recently had a new hard drive and now can't use higher than Windows Media Player 9 I can't find plug-ins to play the DVD in there.  I want Media Center 2006 edition to support Windows Media Player 11.  Can I download it somewhere without losing my data?

    MCE 2005 is a separate product of 2002: she uses a different set of product keys.

    You can't improve your system without the right key - and MS stopped selling MCE in 2007, when he released Vista.

    The latest Media Player updates should be available in updates of Windows, in the section updated optional, once you use the custom option for the analysis of updates.

    If it is not there, then the system is unable to use it - and I see that MP11 requires at least MCE2005.

    I think you're out of luck :(

    Problems with the Task Manager are normally related to malware. We will first determine that your computer is not infected and if it is to get rid of him.

    Download Malwarebytes from the link below. During installation, the final dialogue box there will be two boxes that should have check marks in them. We need to launch Malwarebytes, and the other is to check the updates. It is imperative that the two boxes contain check marks. Once updated Malwarebytes opens. Click the "Scan" tab and choose a quick scan. Remove any detected of course object. Just follow the guests.
