    I bought print workshop 2007 and it will only partially install.

  • rebecca217 Dec 21, 2008

    I never received any error messages. It stops at 20% installed. It still says installing but it won't move past 20%. Tried uninstalling it then reinstalling it but it still does the same thing.

What part do you get stuck at and is there any error messages?

I suggest you try to uninstall (if it shows up in Add/Remove Programs), reboot and try again. Note any messages and post back.

My computer won't read the new camera I've got. Even after installing all info from cd. Have tried camera and it works on tv. It won't let recognise the device on problem either. What can I do?


A camera that works connected to a TV without software is not the proper device to connect to a computer. Check again with your packaging and instructions.
Having a camera working on the computer and then porting the video signal to a TV monitor is the preferred arrangement.
Install the software, reboot, then connect a PC camera, it should be recognized and be testable on Skype, etc.

Had a virus called windows vista 2012 update in my computer. I had Hit Man Pro 3.5 do a fix on my computer and now my computer wont boot up on normal setting. I can only boot up computer on Safe Mode...


If your computer was setup to restore to a previous timeline, you could try that first. If not, you could see if your antivirus and antimalware scanner will work in safemode which it may. If you have another desktop, you could remove the HD from the infected PC, plug it into the 2nd PC (that you know is clean) and run the scanners to remove the infected files. If it still won't load, pop in the Windows installation CD and choose Repair. If it still won't work, then backup the data in Safe Mode and do a clean installation. If you go this route, make sure to scan your backup data media before you use them.

My computer wont load/install my sims2 game it has no scratchs and all the expansion packs work i duno what to do


It won't run the cd when you put the cd in your computer? Try putting the cd in. Then go to Start > My Computer > look for the drive that the cd is in ( it will have a picture of the sims ) > double click that > then double click the .exe file (typically is called "install.exe" or "sims.exe". This should run the installation and then you're set.

Can i use my emachine recovery disk on my gateway after i install a new hard drive on my gateway?


No, you can't. (Well, it might be possible, but very unlikely, that it would work.) Recovery discs are made for specific machines. There are a couple of reasons why the discs for one system can't be used for another brand or model.

In addition to installing the operating system (Windows), recovery discs also include drivers for the machine's included hardware (video, sound, media card slots, etc.). The drivers on the recovery disc for an eMachines system won't have what a Gateway system needs, unless they were built using exactly the same motherboard and other parts, which would be quite unusual. If wrong hardware drivers are installed, Windows may not start and give you the famous "blue screen of death". Or Windows will start, then begin finding new hardware and asking you for drivers you won't have (although you could find them at the Gateway website). The discs also include the applications the manufacturer preloaded on the system. Some of these may not work and cause problems because of the hardware differences (a sound control program with the wrong sound hardware, for instance).

The other reason is that a restore disc also includes information that gets placed into Windows so the system comes up already activated and ready to go. Activation is based on information about the hardware configuration of the system, and yours won't be correct. Windows will see the this and you'll need to activate manually. If the Windows version on the eMachines recovery disc isn't exactly the same as the one on the Gateway, the product key on the computer won't work when you try activation.

Rather than try using the wrong recovery disc, see if you can borrow or download the installation disc for the Windows version specified on the product key sticker on the Gateway. Then you can do a clean new Windows installation and activate it using the product key. You can find the drivers your computer needs at Gateway's website as I mentioned before. It's more work than just running the recovery disc, but it will work. This does mean the system won't have any of the preloaded applications originally on the computer when you're finished. But this is not a bad thing.

Much of the preloaded stuff on a new computer is often called "bloatware", which you really don't need. It just slows the computer down, uses up Windows resources, and may be gathering information and sending it to sites behind your back. You can find good free programs to do anything originally installed and install only what you really need and want. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

CD/DVD burning: CDBurnerXP
Antivirus: AVG, Avast!
Audio processing: Audacity
Image processing: GIMP
Office suite: OpenOffice

Good luck getting the system back up and running. Thanks for using Fixya!

I was given a Compaq d530 cmt and it won't boot says non-system disk or disk error hoe can I install unbunto on it as a spare


Download Ubunto onto a disc (as an image) and then you will need to boot to the disc in order to begin the installation process. With HP computers (including Compaqs), right after the computer is turned on, press F12 to bring up the units boot menu. Select the optical drive and then start the installation.

Pc will not finish vista installation


Your computer doesn't have the required specifications to install Vista, I believe it has too little RAM. 512MB is technically enough, but it's possible Vista won't install on it because of that.
