You have either got a faulty hard drive if it stops just after the initial setup files installation, or your processor or motherboard is faulty if it just stops before you even get to the file install stage, but it is a process of illimination i'm afraid.

Can asus k42f be ugraded to windows 8?

Windows 8 has updated drivers as much as you would get from Asus built into win 8.

Go to devise MGR, if windows 8 did not load drivers, you will see a flag.

See what hardware did not load a driver and then use the win 7 driver.

You don't do anything to make a win 7 driver work, if the driver is newer, and signed it will install, if it's older then the driver windows installed, it won't install. If you see a flag and windows did not install a driver, then try the win 7 driver, or go to the MFG of the hardware and see if there is a win 8 driver.

You can also run windows update, if win update see's a newer driver out it might pick it up and give you a install option.

Now, your chipset, and most hardware has windows 8 drivers out.

The drivers are the biggest problem, the biggest problem for you is the BIOS was not set for windows 8.

So you could find even with the best drivers, win 8 slower or has bugs more then win 7 will have.

Me, I would bench test all the hardware with win 7, then with win 8 and see which one is better.

I have sis 661fx Motherboard with intel 3.06 GHz processor with 1gb Ram.I have installed Win 7 last month.The Aero feature is not working on my system.i tried to update the drivers but wen i troubleshoot...

Did you run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor before you installed Win 7. You may find that windows 7 doesn't allow the use of your graphics hardware. With the issue of Win 7, Microsoft decided that they would only allow the use of hardware that had been tested by themselves. To enforce this all drivers for Win 7 onwards require "Signed Drivers" to operate properly. You may need to buy a Win 7 ready graphics card to continue with a stable computer.

I have Sony DCR-TRV285E Digital-8 Digital Camcorder Driver for win.xp but i have the program for win.7

The USB streaming driver for the Camcorder is not available for Windows 7 OS from Sony at this point. Hence it is not possible to transfer videos using USB interface. You may use i.LINK or A/V interface to transfer videos from the Camcorder to the Computer which is running on Windows 7 Operating System.

Please follow the steps to transfer video to a computer using an i.LINK connection (IEEE 1394).

IMPORTANT: Video capture software and a compatible video capture card must be installed on the computer. Depending on the computer manufacturer, various video capture cards and software (Adobe Premiere, Roxio Video Wave, Microsoft Windows Movie Maker, etc.) may be available or already installed on your computer. If necessary, contact the manufacturer of your computer for further information.

NOTE: Many Sony VAIO computers are bundled with Sony DVgate Motion or DVgate Plus software for video capturing. Some VAIO computers also include Click To DVD software that will allow video capture to the computer hard drive or directly to a DVD.

  1. Connect an i.LINK cable (also known as IEEE 1394) to the i.LINK port on the digital camcorder.

i.LINK Cable.


i.LINK port.


  1. Connect the other end of the i.LINK cable to the computer.

NOTE: The computer i.LINK ports and capture cards may have either 4-pin or 6-pin connections. Sony digital camcorders use i.LINK ports with 4 pins. If your computer only has a 6-pin i.LINK port, then it will be necessary to use a 4-pin to 6-pin i.LINK cable.

  1. Turn on the digital camcorder by moving the POWER switch to the VTR position.
  2. Cue the camcorder tape to the beginning of the video footage.
  3. Turn on the computer.
  4. Start the video capture software on the computer.
  5. Begin playing the recorded video in the camcorder.
  6. Begin importing the video with the capture software.

It should now be possible to copy the video using the video capture software if the computer hardware and software are configured correctly.

My computer reaches the win xp starup screen then a blue screen flashes theen it restarts

There are a lot of reason why this is happening. It may be a newly installed hardware, one of the hardware is damaged or it may also be the RAM. You can try reseating the ram first. If that does not help, if you have hardware connected through USB, disconnect it first.
Install the operating system (win XP) with the mouse, keyboard and the monitor connected. Other peripherals (hardware) should be disconnected to the tower.

Problems installing windows server 2000


Make sure the hardware is compatiable with Server 2000. Most of the time you will run into a stale if hardware is not compatiable or windows does not have a compatiable driver for those devieces. If you have the drivers for your hardware, install those at the begining of the server install. (You will see at the bottom of the screen press F3 to install 3rd party drives. After the drivers are installed, you should be able to proced.

Good Luck,

Okay, has the SCSI system been setup properly? you must adjust some hardware settings to tell the computer what device is the end of the string, and if it is not configured correctly, you won't be able to use some or all of the SCSI hardware. I would check all hardware settings and BIOS settings before attempting that again.
**WARNING** Do NOT open your computer unless you are properly grounded to your computer via ESD Bracelet. any static that is discharged (Usually you don't even see or feel) can damage computer components. Please use extreme caution when working inside a computer.
