I need clear instructions on how to transfer data from Windows XP laptop to Windows 7 desktop by Kingston DT1/2GB


I assume the USB pen is formatted and empty.
Place the Pen in a free USB on your laptop and with Explorer select the file/s you want to copy. Highlight the file names and with "My Computer" open drag the files onto the Pen.
When you have finished, remove the Pen and place it in the Win7 desktop.
Open Explorer on your Desktop and select the files in the Pen. Right hand mouse click on them using the move command and place them on your desktop.
When you have finished you can then make folders to move them into on your Win7 Desktop.
Hope this explains it for you.

Trying to media share a laptop with Windows 7 to a desktop with Windows XP. Laptop is getting the desktops files, but the desktop will not open laptop files (Media Player specifically). Upgraded desktop...


If your files are in "My Music" and the "My Documents" is not shared, then nobody can view them from another PC. Try copying the files to your shared files directory and see if you can access them then.

If you hold down SHIFT and right click on a BMP file, then select "open with" and choose the MS Paint option. This should let you open the BMP file and also provide an option to use as the default viewer.

if you do not know where the file is... goto start, search, for file and search for coronastart_bg.bmp

Windows vista wont load


Hi I believe that wouldn't be a problem. If you want to do a system recovery, the laptop usually comes with a back up partition where all the files to do system recovery is stored. You can use these files to restore the setting back to the point when you first purchased the item.

REMEMBER: All your datas will be erased when you do the System Recovery.
For me guide you on have to access the files, I need the make and model of your laptop.

NOTE: If the RECOVERY or FACTORY_IMAGE partitions on the hard drive have been deleted OR the files in these partitions have been deleted, these steps will not work. You must use recovery discs.

  1. Turn off the computer.
  2. Disconnect all connected devices (such as the Personal Media Drive, USB drives, printer, and fax), remove media from drives, and remove any recently added internal hardware. Do not disconnect the monitor, keyboard, mouse, and power cord.
  3. Turn on the computer and immediately press the F11 key repeatedly , about once every second, until Recovery Manager opens.
  4. Click Next .
    A Microsoft System Restore screen opens.
  5. Select No, I would like to see other options , and then click Next .
    A System recovery screen opens.
  6. Click Yes , and Next to continue the recovery process.
    The Recovery Manager gives you the option of backing up your data files. To do so, read Backing up your files .
  7. To continue recovery, select No , and then click Next .
    A recovery progress screen opens. Wait while files are restored.
  8. When System Recovery is complete, click Finish
  9. The computer restarts and continues into Windows setup.
  10. Complete the setup screens and wait until the computer finishes the setup.
  11. Turn off the computer, reconnect all peripheral devices, and turn on the computer.
  12. Before using the computer, update and protect it by reinstalling any virus and security software that was installed before the System Recovery.
  13. Reinstall any software applications that were added after purchasing the computer, and replace any files that were backed up.
Please rate this solution.

Hey mrbickham,

In some instances, updating existing software or installing new programs onto your computer can cause issues such as what you have encountered. Fortunately, re-associating .PDF files with Adobe Acrobat Reader instead of MS Word 2007 may be all that you need to do. Most versions of Windows allow users to select the program they want to use to open any given file type, and can usually be done by following the steps I’ve provided below.

1) Right-click on the .PDF file icon.

2) Choose "Open With" from the menu that appears.

3) When you highlight the “Open With” option a submenu should appear. Click on the link in this menu that says “Choose Program.”

4) Another window should then open, providing a list of the available programs on your computer. Choose Adobe Acrobat Reader from the menu and check the box next to it.

5) At the bottom of the page there should also be an option that says something similar to "Always use this program to open this file type." Make sure that this option is enabled.

6) Click "OK."

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
