I have notebook acer aspire 5741g and window7, ATI Mobility Radeon and I have no problem. Now I want to work Windows XP. I look for compatible drivers.


I would suggest that you download and install the FREE XP mode for Windows 7. That way you can easily move back and forth between Windows 7 applications and XP applications.

You can also install the FREE XP virtual machine on your Windows 7 and have an XP computer on your Windows 7 computer. Works great and much better than Dual Booting. I

If Windows 7 is working with no problems on your Windows 7 installation your ATI Mobility Radeon will function fine under either XP Mode or a Microsoft XP virtual machine.

Give it a try. It is very easy to install and use.

Top 10 things to remember before installing WIN7


In this guide I will point out some important things that you need to do and remember before installing Windows 7 on your machine.

1 : Check the hardware requirement :- This is one of the most important factors that you need to keep in mind before thinking about Windows 7.Though Windows 7 should run fine with the 512 MB RAM system, it’s always better to follow Microsoft recommendations. Below are the Windows 7 requirements:
• A blank DVD
• A PC with a DVD burner
• A test PC for the Windows 7 Beta that meets these minimum hardware.
Recommendations (specific to the Beta and subject to change in the final version of Windows 7). Please do not use a PC you rely on for your work or daily use
• 1 GHz 32-bit or 64-bit processor
• 1 GB of system memory
• 16 GB of available disk space
• Support for DirectX 9 graphics with 128 MB memory (in order to enable Aero theme)
• DVD-R/W Drive
• Internet access (to download the Beta and get updates)
2 : Backup Vista :- If you are planning to upgrade from Vista SP1(SP1 is must) then it’s a good idea to backup your Vista drive so that you can revert back to Vista easily. I hope most of you know how to do back up task!
3 : You need to backup all your profiles and other important files that I have listed below. In case you are planning to wipe out Vista and install Windows 7 then also it’s better to create a backup of all profiles. Below are the important profiles that I backup:

• Documents
• Outlook pst file
• Windows live writer folder
• Saved games
• Other program profiles that you use.
4 : The most important thing for a web addict is browser bookmark folder. Use backup Bookmarks option in your browser to create a bookmark. Download Password Exporter add-on for Firefox to backup all your saved passwords. Also don’t forgot jot down all installed add-ons!


You can even use Mozilla Restorator to backup full Firefox profile.
5: If you have installed too many programs then it’s a good idea to generate list of installed application using a simple command that I have explained in the Generate list of installed applications guide.
6: Next obvious task is to backup all the custom settings that you have done to your Vista. Of course, you can back up! Type Windows Easy Transfer in Start Menu search box and hit enter to open. Follow the simple instructions to complete the task.

Windows Easy Transfer helps you move your files, folders, and program settings from one computer to another—all in one process.
Using Windows Easy Transfer, you can choose to move:
• User accounts
• Documents
• Music
• Pictures
• E–mail
• Internet favorites
• Program settings
7 : Move your Download folder from the “C” drive to any other safe location so that you will not lose the downloaded files.
8 : Though Microsoft recommends 16GB drive to install Windows 7 I recommend at least 30GB so that you won’t run out of free space in near feature.
9 : If you have any files in Desktop just move to safe place since most of us keep important files on Desktop for quick access.

10 : Last but least, don’t forget to retrieve Office and other product keys.

Press "F8" before Windows boot and you'll be presented with Advanced Boot Option. Select Safe Mode and hope it can booted successfully into this mode. Uninstall the related driver and reboot the system to normal mode.

Once it is booted, install the driver obtained from NVIDIA which is WHQL certified for Windows 7. Once installed, reboot your system and hope it works now.

My Windows BOOTS HALF WAY


It seems you have a flawed Windows installation. I know how boring and frustrating it can be, but it appears your only choice is to reinstall the OS again. Did you delete the partition prior to the new install? That's the best way to ensure you have a brand spanking new system. I would suggest you go that route next time you attempt to do it.
Good luck!

Self installing image


Try Acronis True Image. Similar to Ghost but works better. You can create an image of your system on a separate partition. When booting your system, you can recover from this image by pressing F11. Sort of like the hidden partition some companies put on a hard drive to return it to factory state. Only you create the partition yourself.

I Wanted To Make a BOOT CD For Windows XP But The Problem is That I Have Windows Vista and i Dont Know What To Do So What Can i Do


How to make a bootable Windows Vista ISO DVD media
  1. Put all 3 downloaded files (namely install.wim, boot.wim and an executable X13-49120.exe) in the same folder (for this tutorial, let’s assume the files are put on C:\ else you need to modify the path accordingly).
  2. Run the X13-49120.exe executable. Windows Vista Setup Preparation will create a new folder “Vista” inside the folder and will populate the folder with all necessary Vista setup files which takes up about 2.52 GB disk space.
  3. Exit from the Install Windows screen.
  4. Download CDimage 2.52.
  5. Extract CDimage from CDimage.zip to the C:\ root directory.
  6. Open a command prompt shell, and run the following command: cdimage.exe -lVISTA_EN_DVD -m -u2 -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com C:\Vista\ C:\Vistax86.iso
    Bootable Windows Vista x86 DVD ISO image in UDF format will be created as vistax86.iso in C:\ or any folder you specified above.
  7. Burn the newly create ISO with a CD/DVD burning software such as Nero or Alcohol 120%. Try to burn at low speed (i.e. 4X) and turn on verification to ensure that the DVD creation is fine.
Visit here for illustrative guide on using CDImage GUI version to make the bootable DVD ISO.

Create a Windows Vista ISO image and DVD with Oscdimg
Another possible way to create a bootable Vista ISO and DVD is by using Oscdimg CD-ROM and DVD-ROM Premastering Utility, available via WinPE (Windows Preinstallation Environment) via Business Desktop Deployment 2007 or Windows Automated Installation Kit (AIK).
  1. Complete step 1 – 3 as above.
  2. In the command prompt window, run the following command: oscdimg -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com -h -u2 -m -lVISTA_EN_DVD C:\Vista\ C:\VistaDVD.iso
    A VistaDVD.iso UDF DVD image will be created and can be used to boot the computer from DVD to install Vista.
  3. Burn the ISO image file by using last step above.
Visit the guide to create Vista bootable DVD using vLite.
Note: For 64-bit Windows Vista, download etfsboot.com and put it into “\Vista\boot” folder. Or users using WAIK (WinPE), the etfsboot.com can be found at %Programfiles%\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\ folder. So simply replace -bC:\Vista\boot\etfsboot.com with -bC:\Program Files\Windows AIK\Tools\PETools\amd64\boot\etfsboot.com when making 64-bit Vista DVD image.

Read this tutorial on JSKYS site.

Follow each step carefully. If you can't make the repair

with these steps...download the 64-bit version of

Windows 7 Beta at this link. If you lack the capability

to burn an ISO image to a DVD then skip this step.

We recently installed 7 onto a Vista loaded laptop

with a damaged boot sector. Your files will be saved to

a folder during installation. Once you complete the installation

of 7 you can reinstall Vista on the original partition.

This type of troubeshooting takes a bit of experience and a

load of patience.


I hope this will help you get your teeth into it.
