    Non-system disk or disk error when starting up. Can't enter F-10 for system recovery,can only press F-1 for setup. Don't have Win XP disk, was on harddive and can't access it since windows won't even open. This particular computer is not connected to the internet and doensn't have access to it. What do I do? Have things on this computer I don't want to loose.....also computer was left unplugged for about 2 years, if that makes a difference.

Wondering what my canon mp450 is compatible with. Need to install it and can't find it on the list


You can get the software/drivers here: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mp_series/pixma_mp450#DriversAndSoftware . Use the drop-down menu to select Mac OS X or Windows 98 through Win7 (32- or 64-bit).

For Windows, any generic driver from the OS will not run the scanner. Uninstall this driver then disconnect the data cable before installing the Lexmark software.

I hope this helps.

go to the printer manufacturer's website and dnwnload the proper drivers from there. you will have to know if you have a 32 or 64 bit version of vista. to find out, go to "computer>system properties" and it should tell you on that screen whether you need the 32 bit or 64 bit drivers.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista.

Yes. But Vista is full of problems. I suggest you use XP instead. Some computer manufacturers now offer XP for a small surcharge because they recognize that Vista is a lousy Operating system.

Toshiba 5005-s504 bios update


the most appropriate bios version can be found on support.toshiba.com for US model or toshiba.ca/support for Canadian model. If the install from windows wont run, i think your os is a 64 bit windows vista. If you do have a 64 bit vista, try this solution. Downgrade to XP then update the bios. it will do work. Then reinstall again the OS 64 bit vista. Its quite bit long but it will eliminate the use of cd or floppy disk.
