Re: i have the window vista soound problem

The notebook i assume has the realtek sound chip, but at the moment their site is down so click on the link below and download the Vista sound drivers and see if they work for you, but it could be that your motherboard manufacturer does not yet have any supported sound driver for Visat.

I have the acer5715/5315 series abd it crashed. I had it fixed and the guy put windows 7 so now none of my acer programs work. How can I get these to work with windows 7

Operating System Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 2
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Starter

1. Before upgrading to windows 7, you must check the specification of your acer aspire 5315.

2. Windows 7 is better than windows vista but if you are really wanted those acer programs to work. You have to downgrade your operating system from your previous operating system.

Which Windows Vista Edition are you?

If you are upgrading XP to Vista, make sure you backup and have the program "Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor"

Download Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor:

Be Sure to Backup with a removable media such as CD's, Floppy Disks or USB Flash Drives, External Hard Drivers.

Windows Vista Editions:

Windows Vista Home Basic
Windows Vista Home Premium
Windows Vista Business
Windows Vista Ultimate
Windows Vista Starter
Windows Vista Enterprise

These also include 64-bit.

Lastly, if you have XP and if it's Vista Capable, you don't need to use the upgrade advisor, you are allowed to use any, but you must download the drivers after upgrade.

Can i update window 7 ? now i hv window XP is there any effect of my files available in system during downloading wndow7

Windows 7 does not allow an upgrade from Windows XP. You would have to upgrade to Vista first and then on to 7. Also, it depends on which Vista you have that will determine which Windows 7 you can upgrade to. If you have Vista Home basic for instance, you cannot upgrade to Windows 7 Premium or professional. It is really screwed up. You can however do a clean install but you will lose all your old files unless you back them up on an external drive before running the new OS.

Update to windows 7 on Gateway M-1624 Notebook with vista

You can upgrade to windows 7 from Vista is pretty straight forward. All you have to do is put Windows 7 CD in while running Vista and automatic startup should show you options to choose. There's some trouble with it sometimes for example, you can't upgrade a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version, or upgrade from a higher edition of Windows, such as Windows Vista Ultimate, to a lower edition, such asWindows 7 Home Premium. If this is the case, you'll need to use the Custom option during installation. Please remember that while Upgrading will keep all of your files and programs, custom installation will NOT. So you would need to back everything up before you start. Before you install Windows 7 make sure that all of programs that you need will work on it. For more information visit this microsoft website dedicated to upgrading to windows 7 >> Have a nice day and good luck.

Toshiba L40-A510

There are a lot of things that do not work on Vista that do work on XP. For that reason some of my client's have asked me to re-install XP so they would not have to upgrade their hardware and software programs. You could have the same problem.

First off, you don't sound dumb, nobody is born computer literate. It's one thing to learn how to use computers, it's another when it comes to loading or working on them. Don't worry about it reading upgrade from 98 or 2000, Vista wasn't around when they packaged these, and Vista to XP is fine. I use XP Pro, I find that it's better than XP Home for my needs. Pro or Home will work fine for you, don't get the XP basic, the Home and Pro have better features. Also, you just need to purchase A Windows XP disc, and not a disc from Gateway or Gateway disc. Windows XP is sold at Walmart, Bestbuy, or Circuit City. After the install you will need to go to Gateway's support site and download any drivers that you need, I'll list the link for it bellow. You can find which drivers you need in the device manager, the devices with yellow question marks need drivers. If you have any problems with any of this get back to me. Thanks for the compliment on the pic, most people don't get it, especially the younger crowd on here.
