How do I get Vista updates to install


Here is a helpful Microsoft Knowledge base article that should help! Install Windows updates

Apr 27, 2014 | Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Unlock windows vista


1 fix for this issue is to use the restore disc that came with the pc. If you don't have those and u have a vista disc you can use the Vista disc to install Vista and get the vista code off the Microsoft sticker on the pc. You can contact Microsoft for help as well they may have a way of unlocking it. Also if you are looking to upgrade the pc and u have a Vista install cd you could just put in a new hard drive and then install Vista on it. Hope this helps you. The other issue is there may be a BIOS Password if so then there is a whole new set of issues.

Forgot password, does not have cd rom drive, need to restore to factory settings. How???


Hi there,

How to obtain Vista Recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.


There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.

See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.


Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.


Also ask them if it is possible to make Recovery Disk/s from the Recovery Partition in case of Hard Drive failure or System Crash.

They will tell you how to do that.


Each Computer Manufacturer has their own way of making Recovery Disk/s.

Or borrow a proper Microsoft Vista DVD(not Dell, HP, etc).
A proper Vista DVD contains all Vista versions.
The Product Key determines which Vista version gets installed.

There are 2 Vista disks: one for 32bit Operating System, and one for 64bit Operating System.


If a clean install is required with a proper Vista DVD (not HP, Dell Recovery Disks):


Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.


At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu

After installation > Go to your Laptop/Computer Manufacturer's website > Drivers and Downloads Section > Key in your Model number > Look for latest Vista Drivers for it > Download/install them.


Save all Data, as it will be lost during a clean install.


Post back if it is not working we will be happy to help you.
Hope this helps.

How do i reset my laptop to factory settings after installing vista


If you have removed the restoration partation while installing VISTA, you are done.
If you did not backup your programs before installing VISTA, you are done.
If however you had VISTA on the unit and you have re-installed it on the same, you may have a chance.
The best way to restore you computer back to factory is from the restoration disks or partation.
You can aways contact acer for a restoration disk set.
Hope this info has helped.

NO SOUND OUTPUT


Check if the correct device is set for default output

Click Start
Control Panel
Sound
Select the correct speakers and set as default (like described as Realtek High definition Audio)

if you double click them, you can also change some settings there, I recommend you disable enhancements.

Finally, with the realtek driver comes a little application that runs in your tray (usually and orange speaker) verify settings there as well


Good luck, hope this helps
