Had a power outage when it came back on the monitor font and resoultion if huge I tried to change the pixels but couldn't


you can change the resolution from the display properties of your computer.

if you're using windows xp:

right-click on desktop > properties > settings. then try to change the resolution.

if you're using windows vista/7

right-click on desktop > screen resolution then change the settings.

**if nothing happens.

check the software of your graphics/video card (nvidia etc.) i believe there is an option there where-in you can change the resolution of you computer. check if it works.

** if nothing happens

check if the driver software is installed.

for windows xp:

right-click on my computer > properties > hardware then click on device manager.

for windows vista/7:

right-click on computer > properties > device manager (left side of the window.)

when you're at device manager window, check if there's any question marks. if there is. re-install the driver and see if it works.

let me know if it solved the problem.

How to change vista operating system to xp windom


You will need to purchase a legal copy of windows XP and install the software. Installing will erase everything on your computer so make sure you back up all of your information.

You can purchase Windows XP Home (cheapest) or Pro at newegg.com or any electronics store.

I rebooted laptop and dont know password to get back on


Hii,
Assuming that this is a windows logon password (not a BIOS password): we have two more choices... either we might be using vista or an XP..
However if you are lucky enough to have XP you may try loggin using a guest or default admin account under safe mode (* by tapping F8 key when computer boots) and then change the password NOTE: even this procedure might require you to remember the password under change password screen and might sometimes be helpful., you can even try doing a system restore :) . 
And if we use VISTA.. we might try the above procedure but it is seldom helpful. so we need to take help of other tools like Offline NT Password and Registory Editor.
If you use XP a simple googling might help to hack your password, for Vista you either need to reinstall it again or try third party tools as the one mentioned above. 
THE LINK FOR OFFLINE NT PASSWORD AND REGISTORY EDITOR IS:
http://home.eunet.no/~pnordahl/ntpasswd/
also please do read the disclaimer of the author.
THIS SOFTWARE COMES WITH NO WARRANTY WHATSOEVER. THE AUTHOR IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE CAUSED BY THE (MIS)USE OF THIS SOFTWARE! 
All the Best. -srikanthpavan.

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..

Vista removed, XP put on. Now my PC won't work!


Hello there. This is true yes, some computer components require Windows Vista and its drivers to support the device. As XP is not working for you, you would need to re-install Vista from the installation DVD, many companies do not provide a DVD but instead provide their own software, this sometimes comes on disc but also can be a bootup option when you turn on your computer.

Really you need to get in contact with whoever you purchased the computer from, as your Vista was paid for and licensed to _you_
They will either be able to instruct you how to get Vista back on, or provide you with the necessary disc.

Hope this helps.

Lost my right as administrator


You have done big mistake that's why you are getting problem.

1)Regarding installation of win XP over windows vista.
You have to install first lower version and then higher version i.e. you should install first win xp and then windows vista. But vice-versa you can't do it.
So my suggestion is that format your c drive then install win XP
after installation win XP install win vista.

2) which operation system do you want to open .
You can remove it using windows tweak utility software wich is freely available on most of the website. Also you can manually edit it.
For manually do this.( i m not sure about windows vista it is available or not)
right click on my computer->click on Advanced Tab->setup and recovery framework click on settings->click on Edit button
You will see the boot.ini file. You can remove the windows XP line from that file.

Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman
