SOURCE: i need to update my os windows 7 home premium

Hello :

If some files are missing on your Windows 7 , then it will be better to repair it than updating it . Updating may not fix the problem . But repairing OS will fix it for sure .

If you don't know how to repair , then
1: Insert [ Windows 7 CD ] in the CD driver .

2: After that reboot the system .

3: While the system is coming back during the rebooting it will notice that there is an OS CD is inserted and it will ask you , if you want to boot from CD .

4: Agree with it and follow the procedure until you will be asked , if you want to install a fresh copy of OS or you want to repair the existent one .

5: You have to agree with repairing .

Note : Repairing the OS will fill the gaps and correct the errors on your OS .

good luck .

SOURCE: can i update window 7 ? now i hv window XP is

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.

Error 0xc000007b


fix 0xc00007b error "the application was unable to start correctly"

there may be multiple reasons as to why you might receive 0xc00007b error when trying to run an application on a windows machine. 0xc000007b error usually comes from mixing up 32bit environment with 64bit one. For example 32bit application loads a 64bit dll causing 0xc000007b error.

Solution 1
In most cases it's .NET framework causing issues. This can easily fixed by re-installing latest .NET framework from [link]

Solution 2
Re-install the application that you are trying to run. It sounds simple but the application data files could be corrupt or missing. This could be caused by a installation that did not complete successfully or by a virus.

Solution 3
Running the application as an administrator could fix this error. Right click on the program shortcut or program .exe file, then click on Properties, and on the Compatibility tab. Check the Run this program as an administrator box, and click on OK



Solution 4
Restart your computer as some applications require restart after installation to function properly.



Solution 5
Run Windows update as it can provide application fixes and updates. Furthermore it installs missing drivers and updates the outdated ones like graphic card drivers. Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1 users need to search for "windows update". select all important and optional updates and click on the "install updates" button. If you use Windows XP navigate navigate to Windows Update by choosing Start > All Programs > Windows Update. When the scan is complete,Click the Review and Install Updates link. Finally press the "install now" button.

Windows 7 / 8 / 8.1


Windows XP



Solution 6
manually update the application if possible.

Solution 7
re-install Microsoft Visual C++ from [x32 link] or [x64 link]

Solution 8
re-install DirectX [link]

Solution 9
Many times hard disk problems can be repaired using the chkdsk command. If you are using windows 7 press the start button in bottom left corner of your screen. If you are using windows 8 / 8.1 press the windows key .Search for "cmd" and Right click it and select "Run as administrator". Windows XP users Click on start > run. In the Run box, type in "cmd" in the box.
Windows 7:

Windows 8 / 8.1

Windows XP


A CMD window should appear. In that window you can just type it as you see "chkdsk c: /f /r". If you have more then one drive or partition, you will need to tell it the disk (chkdsk d: /f /r).
If it is the primary windows disk c: it will ask you to schedule it for next boot. When you restart, it will do a chkdsk for you before even getting to the login screen.


Solution 10
This solution only works for a 64-bit system. It requires replacing files is system32 directory so be careful. Only attempt this solution if you are confident and if other solutions have failed. When Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package is not properly configured it may cause 0xc00007b error. Firstly download the zip file [link] and decompress it. Reboot in safe mode and go to C:\Windows\System32. copy all files included in the zip package (mfc100.dll, mfc100u.dll, msvcr100.dll, msvcp100.dll and msvcr100_clr0400.dll) to C:\Windows\System32 replacing the current ones. After that reboot in normal mode.

If all the solutions above haven't worked i would consider backing up data and performing a clean install of windows.

Is there any driver, program or software fix that will allow me to load my "Intel Create & Share Software on my Windows 7 Dell Inspiron 530?


The Intel Create & Share was written for Windows 2K and XP and not updated. The workaround is to use a computer (second machine, dual boot or virtual) with XP installed.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or update to one of those versions, you may be able to run a virtual XP computer for free. Download from Microsoft and install in order the Virtual PC program and the XP mode software. Install the Intel Create & Share program in XP mode as if it is your only OS. (Note: you can't have hardware installed on the virtual and real computer at the same time. To share files you will need to save them to external media (USB or optical disc).)

Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels. For the other options, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS.

I hope this helps.

I have Vista OS on my laptop & have never been able to get automatic updates to work. I have had nothing but problems with this OS & want to instal Win 7 but I am told I can't do that until I see...


Don't worry about "compatibility" issues. You can pretty much force Win 7 onto just about any laptop.

What you need to do is backup your files (that is if you have any you want saved)

You need to do a CLEAN install, not the UPGRADE when you boot from the Windows 7 cd.

Delete ALL of the partitions...then hit NEXT.

When it's done installing, run the updates and if you're missing any drivers after the updates post back the model of your laptop / desktop and we'll help you patch the missing ones.

Best of luck!

Ist there a driver that will allow my Northgate 7nss monitor work properly with windows 7?


1.Drivers are usually given by the manufacturer to work with the latest OS (operating Systems).
Sometime Windows 7 will detect the device and input the drivers it has in it "cab files" but if not present it will prompt you to look online to the manufactures website for updates or it will ask you to run the compatibility wizard .
2. Windows 7 has an option also to run the device in another operating system mode such as Windows XP and may have the drivers stored in the "cab files" for Windows XP for example. If not the manufacturers device will not run in the Windows 7 environment.

I backed up all my files when I switched to Windows 7 from XP but I don't know how to retrieve my data.


when saving files from any OS two methods come to mind 1. using windows to back up files . and 2. using
a redundant static drive ( a HD without an OS installed
or an external HD without an OS installed ) , since you used windows to back up your files you'll have to find them in Documents , they will be listed as the old user IE ; "Tom's Computer" if you didn't use the same user name ( name of computer ) you'll find it tricky to
apply the old data to the new OS , note that some programs wont work with windows 7 if 64 bit because the drivers that run the programs will not install into
windows 7 , most manufacturers are hurrying to update the drivers to windows 7 since 7 is no long in its infancy .

RTHDCPL.EXE err


Error Message after Installing Security Updates 925902 and 928843 This afternoon (April 3rd, 2007) my Automatic Updates alerted me about a couple updates I needed to install, so I did. Upon rebooting the computer though I was confronted with the following error message
"RTHDCPL.EXE - Illegal System DLL Relocation"

"The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The Application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL."
  


Cause of Error Message

Turns out this error occurs when the Realtek HD Audio Control Panel by Realtek Semiconductor Corporation is installed. This is my built-in sound card on my computer.

The HHCTRL.OCX file that is included in the Security update 928843 and the User32.dll files that is included in Security Update 925902 have conflicting base addresses. When Windows loaded the HHCTRL.OCX file before it loads the User32.DLL file, the problem occurs.

The error occurs when the following third party programs or applications are installed on a computer with Windows XP Service Pack 2 installed. 
Realtek HD Audio Control Panel
ElsterFormular 2006/2007
TUGZip
CD-Tag
Microsoft now has released a patch to correct the problems, you can go to the following link to download and install the patch for the patch :-)
