You can install Office 2007 without having any doubt on it because Vista is derivedversion of XP (both are from microsot) so there will be no problems.

Hi!

Instead of MS Office suite you can use the fully free OPEN OFFICE.ORG.
Please google for openoffice.org and you will get to the download.
It is a suite similar to MS Office, fully compatible with the MS file formats.
It containg among other programs the IMPRESS software similar to POWERPOINT. It offers even more features than POWERPOINT, example: making PDF from presentations.


Hope it helped,

If you have office formatted documents (word, excel, power point , etc) that you need to gain access to them , I suggest downloading and installing OPEN OFFICE from Sun Microsystems.
It's completely MS Office compatible, and it's FREE!

I think this has nothing to do with the Operating System (Windows 7 or Vista). The issue may be because of the different versions of MS Office. As regards, MS Office 2007 files can be opened normally with Office 2007. However, if you wish to open Office 2007 files with Office 2003, you have to install MS Office compatibility Pack, which can be downloaded from Microsoft site.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.


Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I use windows vista i need to use Office 2003 or 2007.


Hi,
Both office 2003 and 2007 are compatible . It would be nice if you install office 2007 as it has loads of new features. Its even more convenient to work in.


Thanks

I formatted my laptop which is using windows vista,how will i bring back the vista again?


once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,

I intalled windows vista on my laptop but i cant get any sound driver to work with it


I have an HP DV1150US, and just bought a Toshiba M305D, 64 bit dual core AMD laptop with Vista. You are actually "Downgrading" by going to Vista, your DV machine doesn't have the CPU power or memory (unless you spent several hundred dollars to bump up the RAM).   If you bought the software with a credit card, return it (they will say you can't, but make them "receive" it ) as defective (Vista is defective as it doesn't support tons of things that work in XP, there is no legitimate technical reason for this) and then arbitrate with your credit card company to get the charge for the software refunded. If everyone did this, then MicroSoft would not produce such incompatible software. The public has had the wool pulled over their eyes ... if you bought a toaster, and it made beautiful toast 39 out of 40 times ... and in 1 out of 40 times, the bread came out on fire ... you'd return it right?  Vista'=flaming bread about 3% of the time.
I have used literally dozens of OS in 30 years as a software professional, and I can say with confidence, that your problems with Vista are just beginning.  You may be happy with Vista and the tens upon tens of hours it takes to get productive again IF and only IF you are a serious Microsoft zealot.
Look at what millions of other users say about moving from XP to Vista.  Microsoft has a policy for Corporate customers only, that if they buy an Vista machine,  they have rights to change (really upgrade) to XP for free (look it up).   
If you stick with Vista, you are on a never ending MicroSoft treadmill to buy new hardware that works with your new OS, then be forced into another new operating system (MS will drop support for Vista and force you to Windows 7 faster than a hot potato)  when they refuse to support Vista read:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_7.
If you stick with Vista and have any significant investment in prior software ... you are going to have to replace a portion of it.  My 4 year old $600 Office XP Pro package for one ... doesn't work on Vista!!!
If you have to have Vista,  you can resurrect your XP OS and install Sun's FREE VirtualBox and run Vista as a "Guest Operating System" within XP !!!   Then you can "play" with Vista to your hearts content, and when you really need something to work (read: your hardware or your existing software), you can use the native XP.    Oh yeah ... you are going to need a new machine to do this, but you would need that for Vista anyway.   For $700 at BestBuy, you can get a Toshiba M305D with 2 Core 64 Bit AMD CPU, 4GB Ram and Vista Premium aldeady installed 160GB or so drive ... much less that it would cost you to upgrade your DV1000 for just the RAM and Drive.
