Sorry so late I have been away. Yes that error message is tell you that you processor does not have the feature you need. Now you could check to see if you can upgrade your processor but if you are looking to get into video editing it might be a good idea to look for another computer. I'm not a video gurru but I will tell you what I do know, you proccessing power is a necessity and you HD space is also an necessary. Your ram shouldn't be no less that 2gigs; I would go for 4gigs myself. Your video card is a must 512 or higher and I would go with Invidia, good Gforce card if you can afford it go with the video rendering cards where you can put to together, a little more costly but it's great performance.
That's all the info I have on this, oh do a Dell XPS, or a hmm... I would do Dell.

Installing Windows 8


Have you check the hardware compatibility on the Computer? There is a minimum spec requirement to run windows 8. Is it a 32 or 64 bit windows 8? The HP A720N was available for sale in Sept. 1, 2004. I doubt if it will run win 8. The Ram and Graphics are going to be a big issue. Take a look at this Min. Requirements: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-8/system-requirements If you can, return Win 8. Looking at your specs, I don't think you can run Win 7? http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/products/system-requirements Perhaps Vista.

No you cannot, because it is not supported when you uninstall it. If you visit Adobe.com. What you might want to do is just download another version on it. Copy it onto a flash drive or CD. And then just place into the other PC.

Also you can share digital files between the PC and your Mac, but not programs, because programs are Server-Side installed. So the only way to share a program is to copy the files(Install Files) from one PC to the Mac, and it should work.

Tried to update win 7 to win 8 but when loaded receive message OXOOOOOO5D nowcan,t start computer


windows 8 is far better than windows 7

To install Windows 8 on your PC, the processor (CPU) must support the following features: Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2. Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system. To resolve this error, follow manufacturer guidelines to enable NX ("No eXecute bit"), or the equivalent XD ("eXecute Disabled"), feature within the BIOS settings. This feature is typically found in the Advanced or Security tabs within the BIOS settings, and can be referred to by a variety of names, including but not limited to: • No Execute Memory Protect • Execute Disabled Memory Protection • EDB (Execute Disabled Bit) • EVP (Enhanced Virus Protection) If the BIOS setting for the NX (XD, EDB, or EVP) support option is not available on your system, you may need to contact the manufacturer to update the BIOS. Note that some very old processors may not contain these features and will be incompatible with Windows 8 Release Candidate. A whitepaper has been published with further details about the PAE/NX/SSE2 requirement for Windows 8, error cases and scenarios that customers encounter when machines fail to meet the requirement, and what to do to install Windows 8 on their PC's. You can download the whitepaper at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh975398.aspx

Access http://www.MajorGeeks.com and search for "Everest Home" software.

Download and install this _free_ software.

When you run it, click the 'CPU' tab, and you'll get a full list of what "extensions", such as SSE or SSE2, that are supported by your CPU.

Browse the AMD web-site ( http://www.amd.com ) to look for an Athlon-series CPU that _does_ have the SSE2 extensions. Buy that CPU, and install it into your computer.

Photoshop does not work on vista


When Adobe began shipping Photoshop® Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere® Elements 3.0 software in September, final versions of Microsoft® Windows® Vista were not available to complete the testing required to ensure compatibility.
Shortly after Windows Vista becomes available to consumers, Adobe plans to release updates for Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 to provide compatibility with Windows Vista.
Updates for existing Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Adobe Premiere Elements 3.0 owners will be available as a free download from adobe.com, and updated Vista-compatible versions of Photoshop Elements 5.0 and Premiere Elements 3.0 will become available in the same timeframe.

tnx 4 using fixya!!!
