Not supposed to do another system restore. You are basically re-installing USB devices one by one again so the devices dont have conflict. Be sure to install the driver for the drive first before plugging it in.

What luck has anyone had with Windows 7 on this machine?

You could try leaving the system restore for a bit longer. It MIGHT get past 99%. However, you can often run into issues with creating the restore disk. If the disk is currupt, there isn't much you can do about it.

Since Ubuntu ran perfectly, there isnt any other problem with the computer. Running a clean install of Vista/7 or even 8 is obviously an option that will work. You will have to buy the product though.
Otherwise, you could stick to Linux. The software center is really good, and getting used to the environment doesn't take too long.

I have an after market viper security system and my power windows quit working. The viper is also not working properly, shows truck is locked when it isnt. Are the problems related?

Even if the Viper system controlled the windows roll up or down functions, it should not affect normal operation by the switches. That depends on how well it was installed also.

You should visit an authorized Viper retailer and have them take a look. It may be totally unrelated.

Do a System Restore. Go to Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools, and click on System Restore. Restore to a time before you installed that program.

Laptop not recognizing the dvd player..gateway m6317

When did this start occurring? If in the past week or two, go into the system utilities & run windows restore. In here it will list past dates where your system created restore points. Choose one that is BEFORE the time that this happened. Let the system do its thing, it may take a while & it will reboot at least once. When it is done try your drive again. If the same restore to an earlier point.

If this does not help, and if it is not a physical issue [broken parts] you may have to reload your system to correct your issue.

After an automatic software upgrade from HP for my Photosmart c7280, the Scan feature no longer works. Get a statement saying there is no connectivity to my laptop (Dell Inspiron w/Vista. HP won't help...

If you have system restore activated on your computer it will automatically make a restore point before installing any profram or update. Go to start > programs > accessories > system tools > System Restore. Click a restore point before the time you installed the update, iy should be listed, if you have to go back a few days just to make sure. Follow the prompts and let the computer reboot, it will wind itself back to the day it ran fine. Just make sure to not allow the printer to update that file again.

System restore isnt restoring and rebooting into safe mode after

viruses often plant themselves firmly in the system restore files. They could also be preventing you from executing it. If you have "rogue programs" a system restore almost never works. You need to either clean the rogue programs in safe mode or backup your files and reinstall from scratch.
