Just stick with vista, its faster, better and smarter
and yes webcam isnt compatible with xp some other drivers too like sound and video.

it is tuff now but give it few days and you get used
to it and the more you use it the more you like it
besided vista or windows 95 its only an operating
system and its just a tool to use your applications

to go to xp, buy xp license for about $100 and install it.

How can i remove this problem "Windows Vista (TM) Build 6002 This copy of Windows is not genuine" appear when i boot my laptop. Thanks


indows Genuine Advantage Notifications for Windows XP notifies you if a copy of Windows XP is not genuine. The notification messages only appear on computers that have failed the WGA validation process and that are running a copy of Windows XP that is not genuine. If you are running a validated, genuine copy of Windows XP, you will not receive notification messages.

THE VISTA ON MY ACER ASPIRE 3680-2680 HAD PROBLEMS


Hi,

If you have no support discs & did not make a recoverty disc then you will have to contact the retailer you purchased the laptop from or Acer themselves. You should have documentation that will detail your product key though without this you may have issues getting the genuine copy of vista reinstalled. An alternative would be to buy a copy of windows 7 (if your laptop can take it) as it is far more stable & streamlined than Vista. or get a genuine copy of XP for cheaper.

Its probably also a good idea to take it back to the local computer guy & demand he reinstalls vista or gives you a genuine copy of XP. You can report him to the police for distributing illegal software too.

How can i turn on my wireless capability, my lap top is aspire 2930z


there must be a wireless switch present on either the side of the laptop or near the keyboard.

another method is:

for windows xp: start->run-> type services.msc and press enter-> find wireless zero config-> right click on it and click restart.

for windows vista type the same command in search bar in the start menu and search for wlan szero config and restart it.

I have an acer laptop and it is built in with window vista. i want to change window vista with window xp, please help me


How do I downgrade?
Install a copy of Windows XP Professionalmag-glass_10x10.gif with the product key that came with the copy, and then when you hit the activation screen - which is near the end of the installation process - select the activate by phone option rather than the online method. You'll likely end up talking with a live rep; tell him that you're downgrading from Vista to XP, and give him the Vista product key. The rep is supposed to walk you through the rest.

if you have installed vista and change it to xp, you should first delete or reformat your current OS (Operating System) which I believe is the ur vista.

formatting OS:

-insert your xp disk then press F8
-click format or delete files ( i don't know the exact message that will appear on the screen)
-then install windows XP (just follow the instruction that you will see on the screen)

hope this would help you solve your problem..

thanks.. :)
