I would really like the full text of the solution that contains the use of the Run command. There is normally no 'browse' command. You could type 'explorer' instead as that will bring a browse window up on screen.

Can I ask you in all candor, did you buy this game title from an overseas foreign country and not a local retailer or online store? Thanks for your indulgence.

Now, to get Run to display on your start menu, you need to be logged on with Administrator privledges, and you probably have them. Right click an empty area of your task bar at the bottom on the screen, the same bar that contains the Start button and the digital clock. Once, you right click this, select Properties. a pop up dialog box will display and have more than one property sheet identified by page tabs. Click on the Start Menu tab. From this new property page, click on the little button for Start menu and then click on customize. There will be a long list displayed with check boxes for features. Scroll down until you see the Run Command and check that. Now you can begin exiting out of the property pages. Usually press OK or hit ESC until everything is off screen.

Now click on the Start Menu again and you should see the Run command in the second column. Click on that, a little dialog box comes up with a text entry line. Place you mouse in this text area and click. Now type "explorer" with out the quotes thou. This would be what your help text was driving at, not necessarily browse.

Now, you should be able to follow the rest of the directions, probably leading you to finding the CD/DVD drive and then having you perform a manual install.

Let me know how you make out. You can ask me more questions by using the comment box below this text so leave this browser screen up on display. Once you send me a message this way, I'll receive an email alert right away. I'll be online there in the Pacific Time Zone for a few hours. I am GMT -7 if you are in another English speaking country (common on FixYa). If need be we can pick this up tomorrow.

I can also bring another expert in to confer with me and you should the situation warrant it. Okay?

Thanks,
Worldvet

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!

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

Can't clean install.


If you have a system that requires the manufacturer's proprietary device drivers, you will most likely have to return the system to it's original configuration using the restore CD, and then upgrade. However, there's no guarantee Vista will even be able to use the device drivers of the original system configuration. After you restore your system, check the manufacturer's web site for new Vista drivers. Unfortunately, Vista drivers for older systems may not be available at all.

I have purchased a new computer with Vista Home Premium. It will not activate my disc for installing the X1195 printer I am trying to connect. It works happily on the older one.


i had the same problem on my laptop only with a dell printer. the printer worked great with my older computer that had windows xp. it could be the drivers for the printer are not compatiable with vista. try to find new drivers on the manufacturers website, thats what i would do.

so just go to the website of the printers manufacturers and look up ur model number and then try to find drivers for it.

Mouse and Keyboard problem encountered in game


the problem is not with your mouse or keyboard but with your system itself. vista is very intensive in eating up your memory resources. try to disable some program like aero or other features of vista which will slow down your computer. how big is your memory both internal and video?

Hi, I have just recently purchased


Some of the games for windows games which support controllers are ridiculously finicky. Unfortunately, to the best of my knowledge moto gp 07 is one of those. There may be a workaround pushed into an update somewhere though, so make sure your game is fully updated.
