Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista restore from Backup

I have a similar problem that langalibalel had.

My problem started with this issue here.
When the advice here didn't get me to a workable solution, I decided to backup the computer using Windows Backup and begin a clean install of Vista Ultimate.

I did that and then restarted with the repair mode and it said "Sorry wrong version" same CD, same license, I kept both up to date and yet it's saying different version?

I downloaded the restore CD as per this thread, but it said wrong version, so I tried the 64 version. That one worked, but said my backup was the wrong version

So what I think has happened is that somehow I am running the x64 version of Vista, yet I used the same installation OEM CD - not sure where to go from here...

Laptop goes standby randomly after login with fraction of second


If this is, in fact, a settings issue, I would recommend going back to a restore point that predates this behavior.
For Windows 7, open your control panel and select "Recovery".
Then click on "Open System Restore". XP and Vista have similar restore features. Just be sure to select a date prior to this behavior.
System Restore "restores" your system registry back to whatever date you choose. This means any operating system settings you have changed will be "unchanged". If the restore back to the date you chose doesn't fix it, you can put it back by performing the restore again and choosing a recent date.

  8. The Startup Repair attempts to locate and resolve issues with the computer.
  9. If prompted, Do you want to restore your computer using system restore?, click Restore.
  10. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Finish. This screen can vary, dependant on if a problem was found or not.
  11. System restarts.
  12. If the problem was resolved, the computer restarts into Vista.
  13. If the problem was not fixed, the error may present itself again.

Updating Quickbooks on Vista OS


There are a couple of things going on here.
First, and most important, Qb 2005 was not designed to run on Vista. Vista was barley even in the planning stages when 2005 was programmed. Vista will probably run it, but in a compatability mode ( pretending to be an older version of Windows), but updating the program will be nightmarish at best because the updates are pointing to files that are either 1) no longer used by Windows or 2) the versions and functionality of the files has changed.
My best advice- restore the backup on an XP box, or get a later version of QuickBooks that will run on Vista.

Restoring WIndow Vista


No, windows backup will only restore your data, for example My documents, Desktop, User settings, and Outlook data.
To restore the system you will need a windows install disk, or if your computer has a restore partition(like many dell, packard bell etc.), you can use the restore windows utility from partition.
