I have a Janome 5700 with Customizer 2000 and can not load it on to my new computer with Windows Vista

I phoned Janome who told me to download a free patch to upgrade my software. I am not good on the internet and came accross your site first. 5 minutes later I got the patch from their site.

Now the reader/writer connection will not plug in my computer as it has a serial connection and my new computer does not. So I will go into PC World, and hope they have a USB extension lead type of thingy.

You may have guessed I am a dippy OAP - sorry - older person.

Tip

Reboot and run in safe mode in windows 7,Vista,XP or 2000


Insert the CD then reboot. While the system is booting, hit the F12 key to access the boot menu (this could be a different key depending on your system.
1.) Click the "Start" button from the taskbar. Select the "Turn off computer" option if you are running a Windows OS Operating System before Windows Vista, or select the right arrow in Vista. Select the "Restart" option
2.) Press and hold the Ctrl+Alt+Del keys simultaneously. Do it again. This will reboot the computer
3.) Shut down the computer. Sometimes the computer will not respond to a reboot. Maybe the keys are temporarily disabled or the system has chosen to completely ignore you. In these rare cases, it may be better to shut the computer off using the power button. If you do shut off the computer, press and hold the power button for 3 to 5 seconds. Then be sure to wait a minimum of 45 seconds before turning it back on. This allows the capacitors in the computer time to discharge, which allows the memory (not the hard drive) to do a full dump of data. This allows a cleaner restart when you turn the computer back on.
4.)Disconnect the power cord. Do this as a last resort. Unsaved data may not be retrievable with this option, but sometimes it is the only option. Reconnect the power cord. Turn the computer on. else Insert the CD then reboot. While the system is booting, hit the F12 key to access the boot menu (this could be a different key depending on your system. If you have a problem with your hardware configuration or your computer's display drivers that prevents Windows from loading normally, you may be able to resolve the problem by booting into Safe Mode and changing the relevant settings. To enter Safe Mode in Windows 7, Vista, XP, or 2000:

Note: If you have more than one partition installed, you may need to select an operating system and press Enter before entering Safe Mode.
Turn on or restart your computer.
After the memory test, the words "Starting Windows" will appear on a black background. When this happens, press and hold the F8 key. This will present a screen with the following options to choose from. The exact moment that F8 is pressed will determine the contents of the list, and the list may vary from computer to computer. For example, your computer may not do a memory test or it may have a SCSI BIOS to load in addition to the motherboard's BIOS. If you have trouble getting the list below to appear, restart the computer and then press F8 repeatedly while the computer is starting.
Safe Mode: Boots Windows with only the basic drivers needed to load the operating system. Uses basic drivers for mouse, keyboard, display (VGA), mass storage, and default system services and drivers, with no network components. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.
Safe Mode with Networking: Loads the Safe Mode configuration, but also enables network devices and services. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.
Safe Mode with Command Prompt: Loads Windows in Safe Mode, and, after logging in, opens a command prompt instead of the normal desktop. In Windows 2000, a log file will be created to track the progress of the system boot, which is located in the Windows 2000 folder.Note: You should try booting to the command prompt only if you feel comfortable operating within the DOS environment.
Enable Boot Logging: Boots Windows with all of the normal files and drivers, but writes their status to a log file at each step. In Windows 2000, this log file is located in the Windows 2000 folder and is named ntbtlog.txt.
Enable VGA Mode: Boots Windows using a plain VGA 16-color 640x480 display driver for the highest level of compatibility with video cards. In Windows 7 and Vista, this mode is called Enable Low-Resolution Video. It is otherwise identical.
Last Known Good Configuration: Boots Windows using the last registry configuration that is known to work. This is a way of undoing problems created by installing incorrect drivers or possibly by registry corruption. It will not, however, fix problems caused by corrupted or missing files.
Use the arrow keys to move up or down this menu to make your selection, and then press Enter. If you need to update software or access the Internet while in Safe Mode, select "Safe Mode with Networking".

Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.

Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode - If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen.

Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode

Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Once you're done in Safe mode if you want to get back into Normal Windows restart the computer like you normally would and let it boot normally. Click here to get additional information about getting out of Safe mode.

I cant use my driver installer for ati radeon 9200 with windows 7


According to the AMD/ATI website, that video card chipset only supports Windows 98/98SE, ME, Win 2000 and XP. There's no mention of Windows Vista. Given that this isn't a relatively recent AMD/ATI release, it may or may not be supported under Windows 7 properly. It's almost a sure bet it won't do AERO properly - especially if it only has 64 MB of onboard video memory.

If you've got it installed in a computer with XP loaded, you can download the Vista Upgrade Advisor from Microsoft. It will tell you if you're going to have any problems with Vista. Windows 7 has a very similar driver model - and Vista drivers can be made to work with Windows 7.

Good Luck,

Installed gforce fx 5700 drivers in vgc-v517g and


Hi,
The problem could be caused due to high refresh rate or resolution settings on the video card that are not compatible with the monitor.

Restart the computer and keep tapping on the F8 screen before the windows starts to load. Highlight the option enable VGA mode and hit enter. Your windows would start with defualt settings for the video card. Check if the problem is still there. Otherwise lower the screen resolution and refresh rate according to the monitor you have.


Thanks for using Fixya

I keep getting an error message when I start up my laptop. the 2 wire gives me a "corruption has been detected in feature manager, backup file has been loaded", and it will not connect. All other programs...


If the machine is a Dell with DellControlPoint, open start, run then type msconfig and hit enter. Choose the Startup tab and find the startup item named "Dell" with the Command from "C:\Program Files\Dell\Dell Control Point\Connection Manager\Dell.UCM.exe" and uncheck the box. Hit Ok, then reboot your computer.
