I want window vista BUT I DONT KNOW HOW CAN I DO THIS


Hi there !

So tell me, what do you want to do with your computer? Do your computer crash and need to reinstall your Windows Vista operating system? Or you want to upgrade your operating system from Windows XP to Windows Vista.

For reinstalling Windows Vista, is it the same procedure when reinstalling Windows XP and Windows 7. Here is the link on how to reinstall operating system http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean. For Windows Vista, here is the procedure on how to reinstall Windows Vista.

1. Just put the installer CD into the CDROM Drive and open your computer
.
2. If message appear to press any key to boot from CD. Press any key to go to Windows Set up.

3. From there, just follow the installation procedure and put CD key if prompted and it will install itself the whole process. It will reboot for 3 times and don't press anykey when this happen. it will be finished within 20 mins.

For upgrading from Windows XP to Windows Vista, remember that all your files and softwares will be remove except for the hardware drivers. But not all the hardware drivers will be 100% working because upgrading the operating system will make your drivers outdated or not compatible with Windows Vista. If some drivers not working, just install the hardware drivers compatible with Windows Vista.

Here is the procedure.

1. Do not put the Windows Vista installer CD yet into the CDROM drive.

2. Open your computer and let it run to Windows XP program until is is finished to load your Windows settings.

3. Now insert your Windows Vista installer CD to the CDROM drive, it will pop up the upgrade installation wizard and just choose the upgrade installation. It will run the upgrading installation and just follow the instruction and it will be finish with 20 mins.

I hope this will help you and thank you for using FixYa !

My friend bought a new dell laptop & got vindows vista home premium for free when i wanted install that vista in my pc it installed on my pc bt now it is not activating with my friends vista's...


Hi,
I assume you are using the Vista disk that came in with the system. Even though you can see a product key on your friends computer, It would not work on your own computer because that product key is intended only for that DELL computer. The windows Vista that your friend has is an OEM copy of the operating system. The product key should match the Hardware of the OEM computer for it to work.
I suggest you get a genuine copy of the operating system for your self.
Hope this helps.

Sony viao pcg-k25 upgraded to vista, ati graphics wont install. says "try installing a vga driver'


First, you need to verify if you are installing the correct driver. If you upgraded the OS to Vista, then the CD that came with your laptop for your ATI graphics possibly does not carry any Vista driver.

Check the CD (driver) and verify if it has a Vista driver. If it does not have it, then, get the exact model number of your ATI graphics card and download the Vista driver.

However, it would be safe to contact the manufacturer and ask them if they have Vista driver.

This is the only issue that I'm thinking of.

Good luck!

If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

Hello there what i think may have been obvious to you. So i will tell you what i think is wrong. You see vista is a very high software and requires motherboards that are top of their game i think you should get you motherboard upgraded to a point where vista rates it to total of 2.5 then everything should run ok. if you want to ask for further assistance write back to this post and i will be ready to assist you.

I can't use my pen drive in windows 98


Please see thw following for using usb drives, ipods, etc. in Windows 98.

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php


You can try to find vendor-specific drivers for each and every pen drive you use, but this is the mass storage driver so it will be one driver for all of them just like Windows xp.
