How can i get this genuine microsoft logo on my


This logo appears when the Microsoft OS installed on your computer has not been properly activated with a product key. This prevents Microsoft XP and Vista from installing Windows Updates like security patches and upgrades to Windows software.

You can find out more about the Windows Genuine Advantage program here. http://www.microsoft.com/genuine/ProgramInfo.aspx?displaylang=en&sGuid=351e32a4-5bee-4142-9d83-67cfbb4c521d

If you think you have a valid copy of XP or Vista installed, call Microsoft tech support. Be prepared to provide the license key. If you PC was purchased as a package deal with XP or Vista installed, the key will be on a sticker on the side or back of your PC. If you XP or Vista was installed after purchase, the license key is stickered to the packaging the OS came in.

Ok here is the long version present configuration.. 2 computers one running vista and one running xp 2 printers one hp all in one series 1400 and one samsung laser I had a tech network the printers so...


Why don't you get 1 wireless printer and install the software on both computers and print from both? Also if/when you get a network printer set the IP manually. That way it never changes. (read on...)

Sharing printers was all the rage back in 1985 (Back to the Future movie) ... not anymore. Your probably having Windows networking problems. Disappearing hosts on the Windows network ... and everytime you reboot whoever comes on 1st gets to be the Master Browser and keep the list of computers on the WIndows network. And often that one just doesn't "get" the other computer (or two or 3) on the network for some reason.

Also problems can happen if the ip addresses are DHCP assigned (very likely) so they keep changing and one computer remembers an old ip and it gets broken all over again.

Yes do not downgrade or you Will have problems. Microsoft is planning to stop support for xp in the future and already have a new OS-7 coming out to replace vista. A lot of software that does not say it is for xp will work on vista. Just because it does not say for vista does not mean it will not work on vista. Good Luck. I love Xp too but I will not downgrade to go back because microsoft is only going to make it obsolete in the future.
please rate my thank You.

Most of the XP and older drivers, and older software will not work with Vista. Contact the manufacture for your Dazzle TV to see if they have an update for your device that will work with Vista.

Start by visiting the site for Dazzle TV support to see if they have Vista downloads to update the drivers. If not then contact their tech support.

My usb cable is saying it is not recognized to windows when I plug my digital camera in to download pics. I recently bought a gateway with vista. it worked when I had XP. the camera techs say it is in the...


the camera tech may be right.

vista has new requirements and specially with drivers from camcorders,cameras...and everything else that requires you to install specific programs and drivers for that to run on a vista.

what you should do is check with your cameras website if they have one, and see if they have new drivers or software that is compatible with windows vsta.

you shouldnt have any problems doing this with XP, but with Vista, thats something else..

Change vista to xp on acer laptop


see if there are any drivers in XP for this model to start- if there are not- you are NOT able to convert it back to XP at ALL. Check with acer's tech support to see if it is possible to get drivers or if it is possible to convert it back to xp. Good luck- I'm seeing this problem a lot at the moment and the manufacturers do not care about people that hate vista.
