Hi,
Seems that u want to watch the movies on your TV, fo which there are many VGA to DVI converters out there in the market, one is http://www.pacificcable.com/More_Pages/DVI/VGA-To-DVI-Converter.html
Also it might be cheaper to use a VGA to component out converter as almost all TV's have a component in, and in any case with a GeForce 6150 u are not going to get great output :-(

SOURCE: Unable to reinstall DVD backups after HP SYSTEM RECOVERY failed

Code "purple" means you and your computer are done. It is an unrecoverable error that means you need a new system. However, I have found a couple of postings that claim to know a fix. I can not verify these methods, I do not own a HP or other type of prefab PC (custom is the only way to go). Anyway, here are the links, good luck.

SOURCE: Changing Vista to XP Pro on a Compaq Presario SR2180NX Desktop PC

SR2180NX has the Vista 32Bit OS from HP. The restore partition will always put Vista 32Bit back on if you use it. Windows XP can only be put on from scratch and I have done it while I still have Vista installed. One problem: there are no XP drivers under SR2180NX webpages. Do your research on the parts that are installed in the 2180 and any other HP machines that have the Windows XP operating system as the OEM OS. But First, check the Intel Site for the 945 chipset drivers (include the SouthBridge, too) under XP. Get them downloaded to a CD and burn the rest of the drivers you find for XP on the same CD. This way, you will have them ready when you are performing the down-grade to windows xp. After you are done with the XP install, you will still have access to the files & work you had done while in Vista. The Vista files are still readable. You might want to consider getting the Windows 7 Professional (not basic) available October 22, 2009. AND you will still have to get the Intel Downloads for Win7 any way, so why not make it a project and make it last for a few years. XP Support stops in 2014.

SOURCE: My 2gb ram stick died, so I tried upgrade to 4gb

Most appreciated naturalgal66.
Perhaps you would like more information, to put together some of the information I stated in the Clarifications.

This is a motherboard block diagram,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

This relates to the motherboard model you have. Motherboards used for the Intel Core i7 are of a different design, and technology.

CPU as you know stands for Central Processing Unit, or for short - Processor.

The Processor 'communicates' through the Front Side Bus, (FSB), to the Northbridge chip. (Think of the FSB as a 'Data Highway'. Communication goes back, and forth)

The Northbridge chip handles the Ram Memory, and the high speed graphics card slot. (If used on a particular motherboard) Since it handles a high speed graphics card slot, it only handles PCI-Express or AGP.
Not PCI.

The Northbridge chip communicates through the Internal Bus to the Southbridge chip.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the motherboard.
Some examples are:
1) PCI, and PCIe.
(PCIe is PCI Express. It is PCI Express, but relates to the slower PCI Express x1. Not the faster PCI Express x16 used for graphics)

2) Onboard Audio

3) SATA, LAN, and USB ports

4) Ethernet
And other devices.

As you can see the Southbridge chip controls the Onboard graphics, (Integrated graphics) through a PCI bus.
It also controls anything that is installed in a PCI slot.

If you have time someday, you may want to look up some of the hardware, and technology used in a personal computer.
A lot of information can be found on Wikipedia.
You may want to type in Wikipedia's search box,

1) Northbridge (computing)
2) Southbridge (computing)
3) Front Side Bus
4) Sdram, (This page will start you with SDR Sdram. Single Data Rate Sdram. Links are also listed in blue for info on DDR Sdram, DDR2 Sdram, DDR3 Sdram, and includes the new technology coming, DDR4 Sdram)
5) Harddrive
6) Integrated Drive Electronics, (IDE)
7) SATA
8) RAID
9) Comparison of Nvidia chipsets (Also Comparison of Nvidia graphics processing units
10) Comparison of AMD chipsets (Also Comparison of AMD graphics processing units, and also to include Comparison of ATI graphics processing units.
11) GPU
12) Clock generator (Did you know that a quartz crystal, is used as an oscillator for a Processor?)

Anything you see in blue is a link to more information about it.

{Interested in knowing what's inside a Harddrive, or do you already know?

Unable to access sound. I do not know what to do. It is a rental so I do not intend to buy but I would suggest to them. Thanks


Tell them to download, AND install, the proper Audio Driver, from the HP Support website.

Look at the back of the computer tower, or up on the side/top, for the white Service Tag.
Look for the Product Number. (To the right of P/N)

Go to HP Support, enter the Product Number. Then go to Drivers and Downloads on that computer's main page.

Look at the Audio driver/s.

1) IF more than one audio driver is listed on the driver download page, they need to go to Device Manager, and see what audio device manufacturer is listed.

Then match the audio device name to the audio driver name.

(Examples; RealTek, Creative, Intel, Conexant, and so on)

[ Device Manager:

WinXP:
Left-click on Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab >
Left-click on Device Manager.

Win Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows start button > Right-click on Computer > Left-click on Properties > Left-click on the Hardware tab > Left-click on Device Manager.

Click on the + sign to the left of Sound, video and game controllers.
In the list; do you see Realtek, or Creative, or Conexant, or Intel, listed?
Match the name up to the audio driver listed in HP Support ]

2) They also need to match the Operating System.

If the computer has Windows XP on it, (Any version, Home or Pro),
they need to download, AND install the audio driver for WinXP.

Same for Vista, and Win7.

One more variable to look at with the Operating System.
See what bit version it is.
Is it 32-bit, or 64-bit?

Need THE appropriate audio driver.

However, look close. Some drivers will work with both a 32-bit O/S, and a 64-bit O/S.
(O/S = Operating System )

A lot of times the file name does not list what Operating System, and bit version, it is for.

If you click on Download, a small window will come up on the right.
In the heading is a basic description of the file.

XPx86 means it's for a Windows XP operating system, that is 32-bit.
XPx64 means it is for a Windows XP operating system, that is 64-bit.

Vista x86? Vista 32-bit
Vista x64? Vista 64-bit

Same with Win7.

An example;

1) I have looked in Device Manager, and see the name Conexant listed in the list under Sound, video, and game controllers.

I know now that I am looking first of all, for an audio driver that has the name Conexant, in it.

2) I know that the computer has the Windows Vista operating system.

If I Left-click on the Windows start button, Right-click on Computer, then Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list, the System Properties window will state what bit the O/S is.

If it is a 64-bit O/S this will be stated.

If it is a 32-bit O/S this may not be stated. It is assumed unless 64-bit is stated, the O/S is a 32-bit operating system.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/32-bit_application

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit

64-bit is not stated. (x86 is 32-bit)
I now know the operating system is 32-bit.

I look through the audio files listed for a Conexant audio driver, that is for Windows Vista, and 32-bit. (x86)

Also; if there are audio drivers that match, but one has a newer date, use the one with the newer date.

If it is a rental computer, the rental company is the Administrator, and is the only one who can download, AND install, the audio driver.

IF, downloading AND installing the audio driver does NOT repair the audio problem, then the Integrated Audio is bad.

Another term used for Integrated Audio is OnBoard Audio.
ON the motherBOARD.
The audio chipset is soldered TO the motherboard.

This means the audio chipset soldered to the motherboard is bad.
Repair?
Install a sound card. (PCI version)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.
To have me clarify/explain anything I have stated above, please post in a Comment.

[ Also include the computer manufacturer name, { Compaq? I do not want to assume }, and the Model Number. (Product Number for Compaq and HP )

It's in the white Service Tag on the back, or upper side, of a desktop computer tower.
Bottom of a laptop.
P/N = Product Number ]

I used to have the same problem, the chipset driver none for vista 64 > system will assume Intel v.8 core driver XP64bit as the driver.
two solution that comes up to me :
1.downgrade to XP32bit most feature eg.webcam works fine (xp64bit = motion eye app wont go)
2.Upgrade to win7 ultimate 32/64bit both works (64bit some missmatch driver found on IDE/ATA Controller >> always goes to standard dual channel)

What should be done to upgrade to windows 7 HP P2050 Series j510a


Are you using a new computer or doing an OS upgrade?

For a new computer, before you connect the printer's USB cable to the computer, download the full software package from HP's site: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=4027469& . Select whether you have the 32-bit or 64-bit OS and click Next. Expand the section marked Driver and select the full software package. After downloading, install the software. You will need to accept the UAC warning.

When prompted to do so, connect the USB cable. If you do not install the HP software first, you will get a Windows generic driver that will let you print but not enable the other features of the all-in-one. The HP basic driver will work but won't let you launch a scan from the all-in-one.

If you are upgrading your OS, then it depends on the type of upgrade. From Vista to Win7, with matching versions (both 64-bit Home or both 32-bit Business/Pro), just make sure to install any updates. If you are doing a different upgrade, disconnect the USB cable and treat it as a new computer.

I hope this helps.

I search for a driver vista or win7 for magigcolor


If the manufacturer of the copier does not make a driver for vista or win 7 64 bit, then you can't use it.

I ran into the same problem a few years back when I upgraded to XP pro 64. I resolved the problem by utilizing Microsoft dual-boot feature. When I need to print or copy, I rebooted to my XP 32 bit system to do the work.

Eventually I purchased new equipment that was compatible with 64 bit systems

Vista x32 want to upgrade vista x64


microsoft provides upgrade discs from it's site (you should payteh freight).
If u are using Microsoft Windows Vista Home Basic, there is no way to upgrading.

else, the other versions allows u to upgrade.
remember: the only difference between 32 and 64 bit is the RAM memory usage (32 bit will not use more than 3,2GB RAM), and there are a lot of programs that won't run properly in 64 bit version .
