  1. If wanting to clone or transfer operating systems from another computer where one has a malfunction deficiency in programs requesting restoration from another with system compatibilities. Prior to the process, a compatibility check has to be performed on both devices, an estimate of the damage is determined on the computer requesting cloning to ascertain if any changes in software or hardware is required prior to the initial process commencement. Thereafter, the accessories that would be required like cables to link both devices are attained before the entire cloning starts.

Usually two computers are capable of sharing one operating system considering several conditions. First, both computers have to the have same operating system where one has experienced a malfunction requiring repairs from the other. Second, both computers prior to a clone require capacity checks. Usually the host computer would need available space to create back up before the cloning process begins should any malfunction compromise both devices integrity. Second, the receptacle computer requiring cloning depending on the conditions would require available disk space to contain the entire clone programs. Usually the cause of a computer to require restoration altogether of operating system requires evaluation since most computers only have enough space to contain an operating system with user interface fonts for productivity. Estimate the conditions on the damaged computer to ascertain if an erasure of disk spaces would be required to create spaces. Also, keep in mind that computers would not clone another system of its own if remnants of the master system are recognized as being present on the hard drive disks. The process of freeing the hard disk drives of spaces for cloning is called formatting achievable with some computers. However, the condition of formatting when not possible due to crashed or program compromises may simply require changing a new empty hard drive before the cloning would be made possible. Once the host computer is has the capacity to power an external device it nature either as available disk space to create backup required prior to cloning or usually a system checks to ascertain that the alternate computer has the capacity to receive every data. Alternately, the receptacle computer may have required changes of parts prior to cloning. A mentionable example includes hard disk drives to contain the new programs, also required to have enough space to create backup once the computer cloning is achieved. The next requirements check for cloning is ascertaining the appropriate cable connection that would be bridging the space gaps for data to be transferred. Usually an effective cable has the capacity to be recognized by both devices as measure prior to any cloning communications. Also, an efficient cable should have the most capacity to transmit data at quantities that does not cause malfunctions discussable. For example, the cables capacity may actually be able to transfer data only not capable of transferring every data size requiring transfer. Once the process is began with such a cable, some computers would transfer only what is achievable to the negligence of what is unachievable. However also, cable incapacity to transfer every data would would last several durations during the process o cloning. Simply said, the cables require compatibility to both computers, second an enormous capacity to outperform prevents any malfunction on the cable connections part during the cloning process.

  1. Alternately, a computers operating system is replaceable simply by acquiring the restoration programs at retail markets. However, the original computers restore operating systems program has to be acquired with details acquirable as computer type, year, models, and versions as guideline references in acquiring operating systems programs at retail. The reasons for such evaluation include acquiring a program that simply is adaptable to the malfunctioning computer. Alternately, a different operating systems program is acquirable on the retail market to replace the malfunctioning computers systems only with some conditions considered. First, the computer has sigficant parts that integrated with the prior operating system that may need alterations altogether to function with the newer but unique brand away from original brand specified. If choosing to acquire an alternate operating system from the original several additional alterations are required. First, the computer hard disk drive may need replacement either since most operating systems would not override an existing version unless every existing remnant programs were erased completely. Also, keep in mind that the older disk drive had spaces available to store programs from the older operating system that may have a unique requirement of spaces to perform. Acquiring another alternate operating system at retail may be compatible with the computer only the computer has least available spaces in store for separately engineered system programs. Simply said, each device has a set of requirements to perform with the remain ones on the computer being repaired. Where changing once original part that was connected to several other would require acquiring additionally the same remnant compliment from retail to achieve compatibility standards.

The operating system acquired on the retail market is usually in the form of a disk CD that is simply inserted into the computers drive medium from which restoration instructions are generated to achieve user experiences. For example, inserting an operating system disk CD in the drive of the computer should request either repairing the prior existing version on computer or simply replacing the entire system features. Usually, each acquired disk has instructions on the systems reconfiguration as would be termed. Alternative descriptions of the process are restorations, rebooting of installations of systems programs.

Important notes to be wearisome about when working with computers operating systems includes software and hardware compatibilities where a change may require alteration of the remaining, else a malfunction response would be likely. For example, the operating system is the command interface of the computer. Each operating system has functionalities where for example, the malfunctioning computer may have been designed for office productivity causing the manufacturer to install the compatible requisite program system for such an experience to be achievable. Especially on a computer that requires every functioning parts recognizable for communications to be achieved during user experiences, a change in one significant part that would achieve computer user expectation may not necessarily equate to every component parts usually functionality prior to replacement parts.

Consulting with a computer systems technician to achieve the experience would guarantee an experience of restoration functionalities were the computer user simple retrieves a device at functioning mode soon after repairs are completed. The significance of consulting with experts is several mentionable. First, professional hand tends to perform expectedly on devices. Second, experts are capable of the repairs without gimmicks experienced with alternate persons.

Hp pavilion dv6 won't connect to broadband but is connecting wireless


Wifi is broadband. Look in network properties and make sure only one network adapter is available. Microsoft systems seem to have trouble getting online when more than one is on. Disable the wifi and see if it changes. You may have to restart to allow the router to give it an ip address.

How to connect my hp pavilion 7915 desktop to a wifi network ?


The HP Pavilion 7915 will need a wifi network adapter card to connect to a wireless network. You would need to add an wired network interface adapter card to use a wired network, instead of a dial up connection. Check the height of your computer - a "Low Profile Card" may be needed. There are several versions of the 7915.

You can get a USB network adapter or a PCI slot card for either type of network from most computer stores. Depending on which version of the 7915 you have, you may have a limited number of USB ports. In that case the PCI card may be a better option assuming you have an available slot. Other models only have one PCI slot which can be blocked by a VGA card.

What OS is on your computer? I see some models shipped with XP and others with an older version of Windows. You will need to find a card that has drivers for your OS. Finding XP drivers will be easier than those for the older versions of Windows. Depending on the unit you order and your OS, the drivers may be already be installed in the OS. In that case, plug it in and go.

If you go with a PCI wireless network interface card, turn off the computer and unplug all of the wires before opening your case. Ground yourself relative to the computer by touching a metal part of the case before continuing. Remove the slot cover screw (hex head with a Philips slot) (for most desktops) from an available slot. Push the section of the card with the gold contacts fully into the slot. Work carefully and keep the slot section of the card between the case and motherboard. Press firmly and make sure that the card is level all the way across. Then screw the slot bracket down. (Note: you could remove the fax/modem instead of the cover if you do not need the modem.)

For a USB interface option, just plug it in. When the drivers are installed (follow the directions), attach the wifi antenna (if needed). Try to identify available networks (in XP click Start > Control Panel > Network then go to the network wizard to add a new network). Use the network ID and password for your wireless router. (I assume there are other wireless devices and the router has been set up; many older models need to be attached to a computer via a wired ethernet port for the initial set up. Most models have an initial name and password that should be changed.)

I hope this helps. If you have additional questions, please provide more information about your computer's OS and available expansion options. Also indicate what router you are using.

Then, need to search for open networks to connect to.

Then, open up Internet Explorer or your browser to get on the Internet.

HP Pavilion dv9700 laptop, Wireless stops working at random.


HP's normally use the Atheros wifi card which recently has had many problems such as what you describe here. Try a different wifi card to see if this solves the problem. If you don't have a wifi card take it to a local repair shop to see if they have one they can try for you.
