CHANGING OPERATING SYSTEM: VISTA TO WINDOW7 TRIAL VERSION

I want to try the new window beta operating system. Should I continue to keep the VISTA installed or should I uninstall it? What will happen when the trial period will be over? My lap top came with vista pre-installed, with no vista cd software.
I need your advice, PLEASE.

Keep the old system . Instal the new one leaving the old intact. Thsi is called a dual boot. When you turn it on it will give you the option of which version to run.  When insstall the new OS Beta  it shoudl give you the options of :"Overwrite windows?" Say no.  Then go ahead and install.    As to the question about your existing windows. Ifyou have not the reinstall cd's or the reinstal someone else on your hard driver, and you loose you present windows. You will usually have to purchase either the reinstal cd's or a new windows version.   I myself,of would make sure to have or make them before instaling anything else.

Can you upgrade this pc to vindow vista or window7


Hello

Yes, this computer's Operating system can definitely be upgraded to either windows vista, or Windows7. Firstly you wil need to remember that you will have to upgrade the ram module to at leas 1GB. 2GB being the maximum for this computer.

Also, i would rather load the 32bit version of the operating system than the 64bit.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further assistance.

Kind regards

I just bought this brand new laptop and it has Vista on it... then the MS Office Home/Student 2007 and that kept asking me for a Prod Key... I tried the one on the laptop and it doesnt work


the one that you are trying to enter is the product key for your windows operating system. MS Office Home/Student 2007 edition has a separate product key. what was installed in your system is an MS Office Home/Student 2007 trial version. you need to purchase the product key at microsoft website.

It sounds like you are saying you have a Beta version of the operating system. If that is the case, you are correct in assuming it's causing the problem. I would bypass purchasing Vista and go buy a new version of Windows 7 which is much more stable and robust.

You can download them from any website. There are sites which give the download of those, but its PIRACY.. Illegal by law. But you can get Windows 7 beta version from Microsoft.

Using the Windows 7 Beta is meant to be a test version of the upcoming operating system, not a fully functional version. If your microphone cannot be heard on the other end, try downloading drivers for the microphone. If this does not work, try submitting a bug report to Windows to get a patch made to fix this issue.
Keep in mind, you are using a beta opersating system and your expectations should not be that of a stable release. Things are meant to break.

Win vista


If your equipment is new and has the original operating system installed of factory it does not need activation, only that you have tried to update your operating system to another version of windows vista, in this case you must reinstall the operating system from the secret partition Invoking it with F11 or with Thinkadvantage's button (blue button) in the top part of your keyboard and of this form you leave the equipment as when to extract of the box the first time.

Regarding games...


There are a lot of bugs in the beta version of vista. New drivers or premature older video card drivers may not work very well with some games.

go into the control panel->administrative tools and open "event viewer", look for logs at the time your computer shut down and it might suggest for a possible cause.

To add to that a new service pack is already out for vista. These usually come out after all the minor fixes pile up to a certain amount.

i would recommend you update all the drivers and if that does not work you should look into getting a final version of vista.

Windows xp runs faster than vista for games in my opinion.
