I dont have windows vista hoe premium product key so i cants start my pc pls help me???

After 30 days without activating Windows with a product key, Windows will stop working and you cannot use.

If it asks you for product key when log in; use one of these sites to find a product key: - Look for a torrent and the description or comment may provide a serial key for you.

If you have a product key, then type it in when prompted.

I could not do Map Network Drive from other pc to my Dell Inspiron 1501. It looks like security setting is violated. I got message saying 'c' is available but the user account that you are logged on with...

If you are using Window's XP or later the problem is probably the account you are logged into doesn't have "administrative access". You will have to log into the administrative account to make network changes.

If you are running Vista the default administrative account is hidden. To access it do the following: First you’ll need to open a command prompt in administrator mode by right-clicking and choosing “Run as administrator” (or use the Ctrl+Shift+Enter shortcut from the search box)

Now type the following command :
net user administrator /active:yes

You should see a message that the command completed successfully. Log out, and you’ll now see the Administrator account as a choice. (Note that the screenshots are from Vista, but this works on Windows 7)

You’ll note that there’s no password for this account, so if you want to leave it enabled you should change the password.
Disable Built-in Administrator Account
Make sure you are logged on as your regular user account, and then open an administrator mode command prompt as above. Type the following command:
net user administrator /active:no

The administrator account will now be disabled, and shouldn’t show up on the login screen anymore.

How to install vista on toshiba satellite A130


Performing a clean install Regardless of the type of installation you choose to do, the process itself is not all that different from one type to another. Let's step through a clean installation – that is, a clean lite installation – the type most people are likely to use.
These instructions assume you have an active Internet connection.

Step 1. Log on to your existing Windows desktop and then insert the Vista DVD into the drive.

Step 2. Click Check Compatibility Online. Download the Vista Upgrade Adviser, install and run it and then read through the report. If possible, remedy any problems it detects in your system and print out the report so you can use it later.

Step 3. Return to the Vista setup screen and click Install Now.

Step 4. Go online to get the latest updates for Vista. This will ensure you have any patches and the most recent device drivers.

Step 5. Type in your product key. Note that it will be automatically converted to uppercase and the hyphens inserted for you, so you can simply type the key without the dashes.

Step 6. Accept the Vista licence.

Step 7. At the Which Type Of Installation Do You Want prompt, click Custom (Advanced).

Step 8. Select where you'd like to install Vista – most likely your existing operating system drive (unless you intend to dual boot). Setup will display a warning that your existing Windows installation will be copied to a folder called Windows.old. Click OK to proceed.
Note: If you're performing a true clean install, having booted from the DVD, at this point you should click the Drive Options link and then click Format to wipe your hard disk clean prior to installing Vista.
Setup will now go on its merry way. It will copy the Vista image to your computer, expand the compressed files, install features and any downloaded updates and then complete the installation. The whole process should take around 20 to 30 minutes. During that time your computer will reboot several times. Just leave it alone. If you see a prompt to Press Any Key To Boot From CD Or DVD don't touch anything.
Setup will eventually prompt you to complete the installation by selecting regional settings, choosing a log-in name and password and specifying your network type if you're on a network. After that, Vista checks your computer's performance and automatically adjusts display and other settings to match it, then presents you with the log on screen.

Hope this can help you.

Best regards
