It seems to be a permissions thing. When you launch Gigabeat Room, right click and choose "Run as Administrator". The Gigabeat button is then activated in the room interface.

The key is to have the GB watcher run under XP mode and administrator rights. When you start up the GB Room right click on the program and run as administrator. It runs every time for me. I have the F20.

I have an other brain teaser! bought a laptop (sony vaio) it had vista on 32bit.i upgraded to win.7 ultimate. 32bit. could it be maybe it is a 64 bit base? nota geniouse but could this be why my bat


Beginning with the release of Microsoft Windows Vista, 64-bit operating systems are slowly becoming extremely prevalent in today's market. 64-bit operating systems are poised to eventually replace 32-bit operating systems entirely. At the present however, 32-bit applications still vastly outnumber 64-bit applications. Luckily, 64-bit operating systems are capable of running 32-bit operating systems. In 64-bit operating systems, 32-bit applications are installed to a second program files folder, named "Program Files (x86)." Programs installed in the x86 folder can be initialized just like programs installed in the regular Program Files folder.

Open the 32-bit programs folder. Go to Start > Computer > Local Disk (C:), then click on "Program Files (x86)." Open the desired program folder. The executable file for the program will be located inside the folder. Double-click on the file with the ".exe" file extension. As an example, for the QuickTime program you would double-click on the "QuickTimePlayer.exe" file. You have now successfully run a 32-bit application in your 64-bit operating system. Hope this helps.

If your Acer has a 32 bit processor then you cannot upgrade to a 64 bit Windows operating system. In this case you can upgrade to 32 bit Windows 7

Helo any1 there...i hv a compaq pressario cq40 144tu laptop with 2gb ram installed with windows 7 home basic 64 bit..it is recently crashed now i want to install 32 bit windows 7 on it.but the installation...


Downgrading from 64bit to 32 bit is not possible

the drivers that work in 64bit don't work in 32bit
64bit windows on a 64bit processor would work faster and more efficiently than a 32bit version of windows, i'd recommend against installing 32bit Win7 when you already have 64bit

if you do end up downgrading visiting the Compaq site and looking in their downloads section should lead you to some drivers for your laptop

however, if you got Win7 64bit as stock with your laptop 32bit windows might not be supported by the manufacturer

WHAT IS THE OS FOR A TOSHIBA A 105 LAPTOP IS IT 32 BIT OR 64 BIT


this computer is shipped with windows xp 32 bit, can be upgraded to vista. As for 32 or 64 bit?, the only difference you will see between them is if you have more than 3 gig of ram installed a 64 bit O/S will see and use all the ram, where a 32 bit O/S is limitted to 3gig of memory it can address.
Personally, I believe you will have a lot easier time finding the 32bit drivers for your laptop and printer. 64bit drivers for older hardware are sometimes very difficult to find. GO with 32bit on this laptop.
Regards!

My toshiba TS-l632 Dvd writer installs as a regular disc drive for my windows 64 bit vista. shows incompatable with vist 64 for some reason...any ideas?


They haven't released or you do not have the 64 bit drivers for the device. Look on the website for Vista 64bit drivers for that device. You might try using compatability mode to run in 32 bit mode on 32 bit drivers but you may lose functionality.

32 Bit or 64 Bit Windows Vista ( 3 Questions)?


Answer 1: The 64-bit version of Vista includes a 32-bit bubsystem to run 32-bit apps. I have not encountered a problem with it yet.
Answer 2: The power is consumed by hardware, not software, so with the same power settings you will see no difference in battery life.
Answer 3: Sorry, I couldn't locate any information about that model. You may be able to find appropriate drivers from other sources by pulling all available details from your existing drivers and searching the mfr website for them.
