New Compaq Presario SR5590AN Desktop I was persuaded to buy the Belkin Easy File Transfer Cable Now the file transfer is a disaster without the cable with the system locking up even trying to delete one file. There may be a conflict with Windows Easy Transfer? All the related files have been uninstalled or deleted. David Nuske

SOURCE: I have installed Belkin "Easy

There are two places you can look...
Under: Start button - Programs - StartUp, any items in the Startup list will automatically be run when you start your computer. Simply Right-Click on any suspicious entry and select 'Delete'.
Second Place: Select Start - Run, Type In: msconfig and click Ok.
In the config utility go to the StartUp tab at the top. In this window
you can uncheck items that you do not want to start when you turn on your computer. Any checked items will be automatically run when you start the computer. The availability of the config utility is dependant on what operating system you are running.

SOURCE: easy transfer cable

Too risky as the cable may or may not be configured for two of the same OS.Transference by CD would be a better option.

Option 1:
Boot from your CD and follow the directions to start Recovery Console. Then:

Attrib -H -R -S C:\Boot.ini
DEL C:\Boot.ini
BootCfg /Rebuild
Fixboot

Option 2:

Boot from your CD and follow the directions below to start Recovery Console.

Insert the Setup compact disc (CD) and restart the computer. If prompted, select any options required to boot from the CD. 
When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts; choose the repair or recover option by pressing R. 

If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access from the Recovery Console. 
When prompted, type the Administrator password. (if you didn't create one try pressing enter).

At the system prompt, type Recovery Console commands; type help for a list of commands, or help commandname for help on a specific command. 

Most likely you will need to expand the file from the CD. The command would be expand d:\i386\hal.dl_ c:\windows\system32\hal.dll. Substitute d: for the drive letter of your CD. Once you have expanded the file type "exit" to exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer.

Tip

Migrating XP to Windows 7 (Using your Network)


If you are thinking of buying a new PC and trying to replace an old XP system to a new Windows 7, you might want to transfer your old favorite files to your new computer. Either transferring through a Easy Transfer cable, Network, or via USB

This procedures assumes that your old XP is still working and connected to your home or office network. and your new Win 7 is also connected as well to your networkBoth of your system and computer must be connected to the same network, either in the office or home, because it is easier to transfer files in this way, effectively and efficiently, this is practical than using USB flash drive or any external disk, though the process is similar.

Ensure that you have the Win7 InstallationDVD, or the Easy Transfer Software fromMicrosoft website, ready to be installed on your XP system. but be aware this is for 64 bit version system only, please visit Microsoft website search and download Windows easy Transfer and select "x86" in the file name for 32 bit or 64 bit, install this the same way you've done with ordinary software. In your Win 7 however, this software is automatically installed so do not bother yourself.

In this instance you will be asked if whether you want to transfer your whole data from all user accounts or to just specific user only, in this process you can also select specific files to transfer, but in order to transfer all accounts, both of your XP and WIN 7 must be logged as an Administrator.

So this procedure is Migrating through NETWORK, the other two procedure is Easy Cable Transfer and USB, external Hard disk.

1- Prepare both systems and ensure both are connected to the network and working, Start the XP computer and log in as an Admin
2- IN XP , Open up the and start the Windows Easy Transfer DVD, and look or browse for SupportMigwiz. if you have downloaded this simply select Start> All Program> Windows Easy Transfer for Win 7, it will load automatically. Simply read the screen for additional info and click Next
3- A new screen pops out and please select a Network as an option to transfer
4- Click This is my OLD COMPUTER, Still in XP Windows Easy Transfer will then generate a password for the transferring process, because in order to transfer files through the network you will be required to enter a password (record the KEY)

After you enter the key, at this time Windows Easy Transfer makes the connection and scans the Windows XP system's contents and components. Once this is over, you can practically choose which data you want to transfer, or you want to import, just like customizing the items you wish to transfer. After you have decided which is which, click Transfer, then a progress bar will appears the process occurs.

The final screen will then show up indicating the process is complete. Confirm to see if the file you have chosen was actually transferred, then close all window, including the Easy Transfer Windows.

Restart your computer, please. Congratulations!

I want to transfer data from my dial-up desktop, to my new laptop high-speed broadband. How?


Several ways:
1.) 4GB flash drive
2.) External USB drive (320GB or more)
3.) Burn CD or DVD on the desktop and copy to the laptop
4.) Connect them in a local or ad hoc network (not too easy)
I'm sure other expers will have more ideas...

Anyway, at the desktop, run the "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" to gather your desktop info, such as favorites, desktop icons, My Documents, etc:
[Start]
[All Programs]
[Accessories]
[System Tools]
[Files and Transfer Wizard] [Next]
At the desktop, answwer [Old Computer] [Next]
Cintinue to answer the questions
If you have a lot of music or loots of pictures, then just transfer the "Settings Only".

After a successful transfer of the settings, run the wizard again and transfer your "Data Only"

Hope this gets you started.

Copy files from old computer and transfer to new computer


Although Vista comes with an Easy File Transfer Wizard it is not compatible with Windows 98.

You will need a CD burning program such as Nero Burning Suite or Creative CD Writer or here is a link to a FREE one.

Copying Microsoft Word macros to new computer system


Macros are stored in one of two places, Irene - and you decide where and when you create one. When you select Tools -> Macro -> Record New Macro you’re prompted to either create the macro in the global template (normal.dot) file, or the document you’re currently working on - by default, normal.dot is selected so that the macros are available in all documents you create.

Your normal.dot file is also where all custom styles, toolbars and autotext entries are stored, and it’s possible to transfer all of these - plus your macros - from one machine to another courtesy of Word’s Macro Organizer tool. The walkthrough below explains how to access it and back up your macros to a file you then transfer to your second PC before copying those macros into the normal.dot file on that computer so the macros are accessible from there too.

While this tool is the best way to transfer macros, or other individual elements of your normal.dot file (just select the appropriate tab to transfer styles, toolbars and autotext entries in exactly the same way), if you’re migrating to another PC you may wish to take all your settings with you. If you have Office 2000 or later you can use the Save My Settings Wizard to back up all your Office customisations - including the normal.dot template - and then use the same wizard on your new computer to restore them to the version of Office installed there.

Office XP and 2003 users will find the tool installed with Office -access it from the Microsoft Office Tools menu on the Start -> All Programs menu; Office 2000 users need to download it from here. It’s called the Microsoft Office 2000 Profile Wizard here.
