SOURCE: i want to upgrade my dell gx 260 to the new


If you want my advise, don´t do that. I see how like windows 7, and I can say that is windows xp sp3, very fast and flexible, and safe, and don´t need so much. Windows 7 looks like windows vista, and I thik that have stil more trouble.

what printer are you using? you probably just need to download a driver. no worries, this is usually a snap to fix.
for starters go to the manufacturer of your printer online and I bet they offer a driver for windows7 download the driver run it and presto. If you are confused please let me know and I will help you find the download site and driver. Good luck

SOURCE: Netgear MR814 and windows 7 issues

There shouldn't be any issues with the router as a result of Windows 7. The Router does not interact with the computer in such a way as to cause incompatibility like with hardware or software.
That said, what could be causing issues may be out of date WiFi card drivers. Windows 7 has an incredible driver database and I have only come across a handful of things it doesn't detect. But sometimes even with the things it does pick up, a better driver is available.

You should run Windows Update by going to Start (2252758.gif), All Programs, and then Windows Update. If not already set up, you should click change settings on the left and make sure all recommended updates are received like important updates. This way you will get all updates available, including hardware updates.

If this does not seem to improve the situation I will be posting a How To on properly configuring your Netgear router. This will ensure your settings are set to their most optimal settings.

Good Luck,

Upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 - it can be done!

Windows XP has been around for over 12 years. With that much time in use, there are bound to be situations where exporting data, finding install disks, installing the new OS, reinstalling the program and then restoring the data is not a viable option or is doomed to fail. What can you do if you are faced with this situation? Simply, upgrade the system to Windows 7!
Despite Microsoft's claim that there is no upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7, there is a way to make this happen. As a consultant, I am faced with this issue several times a month and fully expect this to rise as more companies transition to Windows 7. The reasons to upgrade the existing system range from legacy databases that cannot easily be exported and imported, software that is permanently associated with the specific PC hardware and software that require a hardware dongle that does not work with newer PC's. Regardless of the reason, there is a way to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7.
Let me say at this point that the process to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 is involved and there are some things you will need to prepare for to make this process successful. If you have Windows XP 64 bit, you can upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. If you have Windows XP 32 bit (as most installs are), you will have to use Windows 7 32 bit.
Tools you will need:
1. Download Windows Upgrade Advisor
2. External hard drive
3. Windows Vista Business Edition Service Pack 1 (no license needed)
4. Windows 7 Professional with license
The Prep:
As with any major change, you need to create a backup of the existing system. Use your favorite method of backing up the OS, data and system settings (I prefer to use Ghost to get an entire image of the hard drive in a short period of time).
Create the backup of Windows XP:
Before continuing, disconnect all hardware from the PC and uninstall all printers, scanners and any other hardware devices that will need a new Windows 7 driver. This step will save you time troubleshooting a failed device once Windows 7 is installed.
Also, verify the Administrator account log in and password or setup a new local Administrator level user login and password.
Run Windows Upgrade Advisor. This will indicate if there are any software or hardware that is currently in use that absolutely will NOT work with Windows 7. Evaluate all non-compatible software and hardware issue with the user and see if this is a "show stopper".
You can still proceed with the upgrade and see if you can make the software or hardware to work by changing the compatibility settings in Windows 7.
The Process:
With Windows XP running, put the Windows Vista Business disk in and start the upgrade process. When prompted, choose UPGRADE. (This process can take some time so be patient.) Let this finish and the system will reboot. Verify Windows Vista is properly installed by logging in using the local Administrator account.
Reboot Windows Vista at least 2 times, logging in each time, to ensure the new OS is working correctly.
With Windows Vista running, insert the Windows 7 disk and start the upgrade process. Choose the UPGRADE option again and let this complete (again, this will take some time so be patient). Once Windows 7 is installed, the system will reboot. Use the local Administrator account to login and test the OS to ensure it installed properly.
Test everything:
Test everything - log into each program and verify access and functionality. Do not skimp on this step - get the user to log in and watch them run their programs.
Once initial testing is complete, re-install the printers, scanners and other hardware that will need updated drivers to work correctly.
I have followed these steps numerous times and it has worked perfectly each time. Removing the printers and hardware before upgrading will save you time and was a lesson I learned after my first upgrade.

Jumping on the Windows 7 band wagon (or not)...

With the recent release of Microsoft Windows 7, an obvious stir among PC users was created worldwide. A rush to get a copy of the highly anticipated release was seen in the PC marketplace in the latter months of 2009, with PC users signing up in droves to an advanced list even before Windows 7 was actually released. This excitement was "created" as with any good marketing scheme; planting the seed in the mind of PC users that this release would change their computing lives.

It is changing lives. My concern in this article, is whether it is for some for the worse. Let me explain. PC users who use notebook (laptop) machines are growing in numbers. When these users decide to upgrade, usually this involves buying a new unit outright. They can shop for the features they want, the price and of course the operating system. The notebook will be configured for them with the hardware and operating system working harmoniously. Little thought needs to go into whether their video, sound or peripherals will work and indeed if they have problems, they can return the entire item - in many cases complete with packaging.

Desktop PC users on the other hand, may not be so fortunate. The decision to upgrade operating systems should be for most an easy decision. Upgrading, even the word, sounds as though it should be a "good" thing. However, unless desktop users have made the decision to upgrade their hardware - that is get a brand new "box" with everything in it (similar to their laptop counterparts) - to go along with the very latest operating system, their upgrading experience can be fraught with complications, confusion, frustration and even outright disaster.

Desktop users (from my experience) seem to be more inclined to upgrade different parts of their PC in a piecemeal fashion. They may even watch for the latest processor, hard-drive or video card. I am sure that when they do so, they keep in mind the importance of choosing their upgrade within the parameters of the machine with which they are working. But when they upgrade to a new operating system, it seems they forget important hardware concerns that should be taken into consideration before OS implementation. Such as, "Will my _______ work or be supported in Windows 7?" (insert PC component of choice).

If a destop PC is even three years old (or older), many times the answer to this question will be "No" or in some cases "Yes, but with the loss of some functionality." In worst case scenarios, users have rendered their otherwise working PC into a rather large, desktop paperweight - with no function whatsoever, unless you find value in that "blue screen" for some asthetic purpose. The range of problems vary, but aspects common to the experience of recently "upgraded" Windows 7 users may include: peripherals not recognized or not working (especially printers), no sound, no video and a host of other problems that could have been avoided altogether.

As a PC user and computer enthusiast for many years, I used Windows 98se for as long as I could. Prior to that, I had Windows 95 which was problematic at best (in my opinion) and before that, good old DOS! In 19 years of PC use, I have burned through only 3 operating systems. I currently still use Windows XP Home (32 bit) to this very day. I will not be upgrading my operating system until such time as I am ready to make some wholesale hardware changes as well. When I do so, the hardware will be stamped "Manufacturered and Tested for (insert name of OS here)."

I hope your PC upgrading goes smoothly. It can, if you pay attention to the special relationship that must exist between your PC hardware and your operating system.

S3842 uk FREEZES ON BOOT every time have to switch off. on 3rd or 4th attempt works fine. any new software that requires reboot - it does this without a problem. started 2 months ago with original Vista...

Upgrades are usually troublesome as they leave bits of the old OS in odd places. It is best to do a clean install.
Choose your OS, either Vista or Win7. XP will not work!
Always download the latest drivers for the OS you are using from or it will keep hanging and be unreliable.
Hope this helps.
