    (my computer is a acer aspire 5315 series) well i dont know what happened to my vista but one day a black screen came up and now it is gone off my laptop. so i was after losing all my backup discs and my old vista disc and stuff so i tried to just put windows xp on it and i am putting the xp disc in and pressing alt F8 and then a blue screen comes up and says windows setup and then down the bottom a bunch of things keep loading for about 3 minutes and then writing comes up on the screen and says

    welcome to setup.

    this portion of the setup program prepares micosoft

    windows XP to run on your computer

    -to set up windows XP now, pess ENTER

    -to repair a windows XP installation using recovery console, press R

    -to quit setup without installing windows XP, press F3

    so i tried both options a and b , when i try option a it says ... setup did not fin and hard **** drivers installed in your computer.

    make sure any hard disk drivers are powered on and properly connectedto your computer, and that an disk relatet hardware configuration is corect. this may involve running manufacturer-supplied diagnostic or setup program.

    setup cannot continue. to quit setup press F3

    and when i choosee option b it says the same thing .

I have a Janome 5000 and a scan'n sew everything worked fine until I got a new computer with windows vista and now it won't work. Is there anything I can do?

Something that pilots say... "When something goes wrong undo the last thing you did" Vista is silly even childish, everyone hates it... Have your computer reformatted to xp and see how fast your computer becomes.

Can u just delete one thread, say u wrote somethin...

Yes you can. Just go into the thread where that SMS you want to delete is located. Long hold on the message you want deleted, and the select "Delete message" from the command list.

Good luck.
