I had a look at the specifications of your computer and it might not meet the requirements to install windows 7

If your computer is 5 yrs or older it might not support windows 7 also you will need a minimum of 1 GB of RAM for 32 bit or 2GB of RAM for 64 bit to install windows 7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-AU/windows7/products/system-requirements hope this helps

Some times BIOS disable webcam after updating it.

To enable it do the followings:

1. Restart your Eee PC.
2. Press F2 while booting (to enter BIOS sittings)
3. Go to "advanced" tab (by pressing right arrow)
4. Select "Onboard Device Configuration" (by pressing down arrow)
5. From there you can find if "Onboard Camera" is enabled or not.
6. If not, just press enter to pick "Enabled"

I hope that would help :-)

How to upgrade a toshiba L305 to a 500gb hard without hardware failure error


I'm a bit confused? You are trying to install a HDD with Windows 7 on it from another computer in a Toshiba L305 laptop? If that's correct, it will not work, first, you must format the 500GB SATA HDD, then load the Windows 7 OS to get a clean install. Clarify the question if I am incorrect.

Operating system not found


No, you won't get the OS to automatically install on the new drive. The OS is not stored in the BIOS chip (or a similar permanent location inside the computer). You will need an OS install disc (not an upgrade disc). Windows Vista Home Premium or Basic was the original OS on most of the Acer Aspire 4530 series. Acer appears to have drivers for the system for XP through Windows 7 to get the hardware to work. You will need to have these most of these ready before you install your OS. Put them on a flash drive or optical disc using another computer.

This computer may work with Unix as well. However, driver issues may be a factor. You can try most versions of Unix from a CD (LiveCD) to test it out.

When you get a new hard drive, install it into the laptop. Then put the OS disk in the optical drive bay. Boot to the optical drive. Follow the directions for formatting the hard drive and installing the OS. (Of course you will need a drive that doesn't have a higher capacity than the BIOS supports.) The motherboard needs to recognize the drive.

If you find a member of a Windows User Group, they may have Windows install discs available. The license number on the label of your computer will probably work as your license key. (The key for a computer like this is locked to the CPU and motherboard; unless someone upgraded the OS to Windows 7 or downgraded to XP, this should be the key you need.) Use the information on the label to obtain the correct version of Vista (the Basic install disc may not work for installing Home Premium). You also need to match the 32-bit or 64-bit install disc (and the service pack you need).

I hope this helps.

(An Acer recovery disc wouldn't help you. Most of those are completely locked to the original hardware (including hard drive) and look for the recovery partition that was on that hard drive.)

You can't format the active drive / partition within itself. It's like throwing away your clothes while you are wearing them in public. You just can't do it. Sorry, that's the only analogy that came to mind.

You format it with a boot disk like, an OS installation disc, USB drive with an OS installation, or a boot disc you found online (CD or USB).

If you have none of those, boot to command prompt by pressing F8 during boot. When you get there C:\ Type format c: Thats it. No going back, so make sure you saved and backed up your documents. You also need a way to install an OS, if you intend to do so.

My computer which runs Windows 7 can not detect my Jetflash 500 16gb flashdrive


It should be able to automatically detect and install it. Try using it on another computer that has either Windows XP, Vista , or Windows 7 on it. If it doesn't automatically detect and install it on that one then the flashdrive is dead.

My hp elitebook 8530w with Win 7 32bit is shut off when I'm working in any application.


Sounds like maybe hardware, however if you are running the minimum amount of RAM (1gb) then that could be a issue depending on what all is going on in the background on your system. Could be a hard drive going bad also, really could be any part of your hardware. As it started happening after OS change, make sure that you have all your drivers installed and that they are all working properly. Just click the windows button (bottom left corner), then click CONTROL PANEL, then DEVICE MANAGER (Switch to small thumbnail view for easier operation) it will be on the 2nd or 3rd line down. Also when you installed your new OS did you UPGRADE, or did you do a CLEAN INSTALL? At this point if you UPGRADED I would just start all over and do a CLEAN INSTALL, fallow the instructions in windows 7 installation choosing the FORMAT drive 0 (your local disk) then complete the installation. After it restarts the couple of times and your actually on your account on windows 7. Choose the automatic updates, let these finish (reboot/shutdown as prompted) Then go to www/hp.com/downloads and find the drivers for you laptop (open device manger instructions above) and download all the drivers that have flags in your device manager. Then do Windows Update again, DON'T download Internet Explorer 9 at this time (ignore it for a few days/weeks) Also you can try this before all the above, as sort of test of your hard drive/file system. Power up let it boot, open up COMPUTER, right click choose PROPERTIES, then TOOLS, then click the check now button. When this opens check the other box (both box's need to have a check mark in then) It will tell you that it can't preform this as the device is in use, and ask if you would like to preform this test the next time your computer REBOOTS (choose YES and REBOOT) This process could take anywhere from 10 minutes to several hours if your HDD is damaged. Good luck hope this helps, let me know if you need more tips or come up with more info to pass back at me, so I can offer more assistance.

How to get the pc games to the removable disc(J) sandisk.Can not Move them to Flashdrive disc.


Hello,

It is not completely clear if you mean large PC games or if you mean small PC games.

By small PC games I mean games similar to the games that come with Windows and that appear in the 'All Programs -> Games' folder. Such as 'Free Cell', 'Hearts' or 'Solitaire'.

By large games I mean games like 'World of Warcraft' or 'Mortal Combat'.

Also, do you want to install the games on your Flashdrive or store them there?

If you want to store a large game on your flash drive. Place the CD/DVD with the game on it in your CD/DVD drive and insert your Flashdrive in a USB port.

Open 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. Locate the CD/DVD drive that you inserted the game disk in (most likely your D: drive).

In the 'Edit' menu select 'Select All' and then in the 'Edit' menu select 'Copy'.

Then locate the Flashdrive in 'WIndows Explorer' or 'My Computer'. And in the 'Edit' menu select 'Paste'.

While this will copy the files from your game's CD/DVD disk to your Flashdrive you may or may not be able to install the game from your Flashdrive.

You can use this same procedure to copy small games to your Flashdrive from your Hard Drive.
You will need to know where on your hard drive they are located. And they may or may not run from your Flashdrive.

Also you may be able to install and run games from your Flashdrive, When you run the Setup program from you game disk you will usually be given the option to select a alternative location to install the game.
Select your Flashdrive at that point and it may install correctly to your Flashdrive. If it does you should be careful to always use the same USB port or the game won't run.

Hope that helps.

Hi I am trying to install Windows 7 on an Asus EEE PC 900 I have installed it on USB Flashdrive but when I try to install it on the 15GB partition it states that it must be formated to NSFT,how do I do...


Install should do that for you. However assuming your current OS is on a different partition thenyour 15GB partition will be shown as a separate drive in My Computer. Right click on it and select format, in the format type select NTFS.
