First you need to be sure that the computer has the minimum system requirements to run Windows 7. You can check that here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/products/system-requirements. Then determine the version of windows currently installed and choose the correct upgrade. You can watch a short help video here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/help/videos/choosing-the-edition-of-windows-7-thats-right-for-you. Then follow the directions to do a clean install for the software you choose and that will clean out all the old files.

Can I clone a Windows XP hard drive from another computer and expect it to run on the Vostro 1000?


You can in a way, but you will need to download a lot of XP drivers from Dell to run XP on a Windows7 computer.
You can not just swipe out Windows7 for XP.
For better answers about this go to http://www.dslreports.com/forum/microsoft they will walk you through this.

Computer won't recognize external usb hard drive


try it on another computer if that dosent work you should
reformat your computer but first backup all your data by putting your another internal hardrive on your computer and move all your files you need to the empty hardrive and after that take the hardrive with all your stuff in it off the computer and then reformat the hardrive which the external hardrive does not work on and install a new operating system then put the other hardrive with all your stuff back on your computer and transfer your stuff into the hardrive with a operating system then try the external hardrive

OR
you can burn all your stuff into a CD or a DVD
OR
you can put all your stuff into FlashDrives and then after you reformat the hardrive with an operating system put your stuff back into the computer and after that the external hardrive should work

Got a used gxs520 optiplex has a counterfuit windows7 now its dropping app can't access. Net help


Purchase a Genuine Microsoft Windows 7 retail package from your favorite computer store.

DIY Install it or get a computer technician to install it for you.

The drive will be formated and all data thereon will be erased. Then you will be able to enjoy your new system, fully.

Take care!

Windows7 is not compatible with my Cannon Pixma MP170 Printer


Hello,

There's still hope for your printer. Just download the MP170 update driver support for Windows 7 from your printer manufacturer.

I've already taken the liberty to search the driver for you. Click here. Just put in Windows 7 on "Select OS".

Hope this helps. Thank you for using Fixya.

My d drive is full


Hello caliandrew88,
Having a full D Drive will not cause Vista to crash. If you need to free up space then get an external hard drive to move files off of your machine.
