check and make sure both windows Vista and office plus 2010 are both 32-bit system. If your windows vista is 32-bit and your office plus 2010 is 64-bit then the office won't install.

1. click start

for your MS OFFICE plus 2010 brows the cd and to determine if your office is a 32 bit or 64 bit

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

No issues like that.

If u r not able to connect after that, check the security settings in the computer.

Vista 32 bit or vista 64 bit


It looks like both of them will take a 64 bit operating system. You can't mess it up...if your computer is not compatible, it won't install.

If you don't have an operating system, I highly recommend Windows 7 over Vista. It is way better on resources and does a lot more with less memory. If you install Windows 7 -64 bit, you would be VERY happy with your system. It is possible to do a complete install without a keycode to see if you like it. Just hit next where it asks for the keycode and it will install, and it will give you 30 days to put a keycode in and activate it. That way you can get a disk, usually for about $5 or $10, (without a product key) (oh, and not from a store) and install it, you just won't be able to activate it...that way you can see what you like first.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

Drivers for M5641


There is no difference whatsoever between drivers for Vista Home, Vista Ultimate or, indeed, any version of Vista. They are all the same Operating System just with bits enabled or disabled accordingly.

Please can you clarify exactly which OS you have. Is it 32 bit or 64 bit? You will almost certainly have the 32-bit version and need to go to the appropriate page. 64-bit drivers will not work with 32-bit Os's and vice versa.

Just in case, here is the link for the drivers... yoiu just need to choose the exact OS remembering the 32 bit option (assuming you do have a 32-bit OS)

Vista RAM usage ?


The minimum recommended ram for Vista is 1 GB, generally accepted practical minimum is 2 GB. A 1 GB system will be kinda laggy. Maximum RAM for 32 bit Vista is 4 GB.

Vista Home Premium is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Media Center Edition (Has Media Center, cann't be put on a DOMAIN type network)

Vista Business is roughly equivalent to Windows XP Professional (Can Join a Domain, Doesn't have Media Center)

Vista Ultimate has all available freatures of Vista, you can do any windows function with Ultimate
