Suddenly my pc start showing that i dont have a genuine window.....


If you have recently installed Windows XP then you will need to enter the product key. You can do this by going to Start, right clicking on My Computer, and going to properties. You should be able to enter your product key found on your installation cd that came with your computer or on your computer itself perhaps.

If you have not recently installed Windows XP (within the past 30 days) then you most likely have a virus. Some good free antivirus software are AVG Free edition, avast!, or Avira.

Do a full system scan, and clean. After that you most likely will have to enter the Windows XP product key again as stated above.

Photo impact pro as a software has compatibility requirements. For example, impact pro was invented during the times of windows Xp operating systems with Microsoft computers. Imply that, impact pro would hardly function with apple Mac computers. Since the Xp operating systems, computers have gone through design fronts of Windows Vista 1 & 2, and recently displaying Windows 7 on those acquired on the market over years ago. The most recent multimedia photo editor software's acquirable on the retail market have compartibilies with more recent computers. Alternately, performing a computer alteration may achieve installation capabilities. First, finding a computer still functioning on windows XP, millennium, 2000 or 1998 would make installation possible. However, sustain wearsomeness since windows 98 earlier years computers were least designed for multimedia capabilities as known with Photo Impact Pro 8.5. Second, a possibility of acquiring Windows Xp disk software on the retail market to replace the one on the computer would make impact pro installable. However like known of operating system software's, it is only possible to install the same operating system on an existing one on a computer as restoration purposes. If different software should be acquired like XP requesting installation on windows Vista or Windows 7, the entire hard disk drive has to be erased of media traces of the prior. Alerternately, a new operating system may be installed if only a new hard drive, memory cards were acquired to replace the prior on the computer to make possible installation of Photo Impact pro 8.5

Got used laptop which just had windows xp installed on it and i cant get audio to work. Tried downloading driver from acer site but still nothing. Its an aspire 5810tz


Is everything connected to the computer protected, including all the AC cords and power packs for things that plug into the computer, and your phone line and/or cable that connect you to the internet and/or so that you can fax?

Have there been any recent power outages or lightning in your area since the sound last worked?.
Does your spike/surge protector have an led that indicates it is still protecting- if so, is it still lit?
A defective power supply that isn't putting out some of the proper voltages can cause some devices to not work. Check your PS.


Some of the files on your Windows installation could be damaged.
You could try checking your hard drive, and/or running an XP Repair Setup.

Or use Xp repair installtion tool. Take microsoft site support help.
