You should copy all of the created files, not the programs. Windows and other programs, once installed, are spread all over the hard drive, not just in the program folder in Program Files. This link is to a site for free disk cloning, imaging and backup programs that might be what you are looking for. Also, if you are looking for a backup service, Carbonite.com is very secure and easy.

Sony pcva-ms2 mouse won't connect


LOL, Welcome to the World of Windows 7, just a tad better than Windows Vista. Ever wondered why your job does not have Windows 7? How about your kids school? Know of any Government entity running it? Consumers drive Windows 7 just like they drove Windows Vista. People that know, stay away from it.

Make sure you don't have the Touchpad locked. Look into the mouse properties in the Control Panel. Some systems have a button at the top of the touchpad in the middle that locks it. Some will have you to tap twice in the upper left hand corner to toggle the touchpad. Some might require a Keystroke to unlock the touchpad such as Press and Hold the ALT or FN Key then hit the key that toggles the touchpad. The key that toggles the touchpad will have the icon of a finger pointing at a square which represents the touchpad.

You can try to go to Sony's Site and see if they have a driver for it. If so, download and install it.
Get onlineand got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "SonySupport" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operatingsystem when requested. Download and install the drivers.

I recently aquired an eMachine 566i2 with Windows ME. I upgraded to Windows XP Home Edition. The computer was running very slowly. I ran anti-malware and various utility programs, but there was no change....


The 566i2 has a Celeron 566MHz. That is very slow system compared to today's
standard. I'd suggest doing a fresh Windows XP Installation with the Hard Drive
formatted as NTFS. You need to be sure that the HD is completely wiped out
and clean. Also, download all the drivers necessary for Windows XP beforehand
and put them on a CD. That will save you lot of time after the installation.

Download pictures from phone to compuer


Normally, a brand new phone comes with what they called "DATA CABLE". The Data Cable can be plugged into a USB Port. All you need to do is plug the DATA Cable into your computers USB port then plug the phone to the other end. If nothing pops up try to open "MY COMPUTER" for windows XP "COMPUTER" for vista and windows 7. For XP, just open the new drive (most of the time it has your phone model number) then browse through folders till you see your pictures. Then just Copy and Paste it to your Hard Drive. For Vista or Windows 7, after you open the "COMPUTER", you will see the drives on the left side panel. Just click the new drive and that is your phone then browse through the folders till you see your pictures then Copy and Paste it to your hard drive.

Acer Desktop Veritron M460 will not load Windows XP or Vista!


This problem may occur if the Ntfs.sys file is missing or becomes corrupted when you convert your hard disk to NTFS To resolve this problem, replace the missing or corrupted Ntfs.sys file:
  1. Use the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD to restart your computer.
  2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to select the To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R option.
  3. Type the number of the Windows installation that you want to access from the Recovery Console, and then press ENTER.
  4. Type the administrator password when you are prompted, and then press ENTER. If no administrator password exists, just press ENTER.
  5. At the command prompt, type the following commands (press ENTER after each command): cd \windows\system32\drivers

    ren ntfs.sys ntfs.oldNote This step renames the corrupted Ntfs.sys file to Ntfs.old. If the Ntfs.sys file is not found, the file is missing.
  6. At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER: copy cd:\i386\ntfs.sys drive:\windows\system32\driversWhere cd is the drive letter for the CD-ROM drive that contains the Windows XP CD, anddrive is the drive where you installed Windows XP.
  7. Remove the Windows XP CD from your CD-ROM drive, type quit at a command prompt, and then press ENTER to quit the Recovery Console.
  8. Restart the computer.I hope this helps.The other thing I can think of is maybe your harddrive needs a raid driver.If this is a sata drive and an old version of you os,the sata driver may not be already on the disk and you will have to insert one.Let me know if the first solution works,if not we can try the raid driver.

Trying too dual boot xp pro on toshiba tecra m5. conflict image of original xp pro, in slim select bay hdd. Need help with settings so as the same op system can be used on both drives.Any help would be...


in order to dual boot something.... you need to partition the hard disk... if there's only 1... you need a program that will create another partition from drive C...
for example the size of your Hard disk(drive C) is 160gb
you need a program that will split 160gb into 2 it should come out and you will have now two drives (C & D) with a size of 80gb each...(It depends on how large you want the other drives to have)...

the program is called Partition Magic 8.0 if you want that program.. i can send it to you... just contact me in my yahoo messenger... derick_10_02@yahoo.com

now it's time to install the Windows XP in each drive then you'll have a dual boot... or you can install Windows Vista on the other drive... so therefore you'll have Windows Xp and Windows Vista in one PC...

hope it will help you... tnx
