Hi,microsoft has launched vista but microsoft themselves dosent which programs are compatible with vista and the worst part is the solution for all the problems in vista is destructive recovery(LIKE IF YOU FORGET THE PASSWORD, in xp from safe mode you can change the password but in vista its not possible or the product key) ............the best thing here can be done is work with xp and its compatible with all the software and all the peripheral devices.............

Yes, Bill Gates strikes again. There is also numerous hardware items in your pc that are probably not compatible with Vista, including your MB. Also Vista Ultimate requires 1gb RAM to just run the OS. So if you have below that amount or right at 1gb, your pc will not function properly (extremely slow) or not at all. The only way ANYONE should buy Vista right now is pre-loaded on a new pc. Sorry man, thank the guys in Seattle for this one.

    Just looked at the specs for your system on www.hp.com . How old is your system. HP claims to have put Vista on this machine already since Mar 07.

Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman

UPGRAde MY WINDOW 7


Windows 7 is available in several different versions, each of which includes different features targeted at different types of users.


Windows 7 Home Premium is ideal for the typical computer user and her home computer. However, Home Premium does not include every feature that Windows 7 has to offer.


If you find that some tasks exist that you can't perform with Home Premium, you may want to upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate.


Microsoft includes a feature in Windows 7 Home Premium that makes upgrading a simple task.


Click "Start" at the bottom left corner of the screen, then click "All Programs."


Scroll to "Windows Anytime Upgrade" and click it.

Click "Go online to choose the edition of Windows 7 that's best for you."


Click the green "Buy" button under "Ultimate."


Type your billing and payment information into the requested fields on-screen, then follow the prompts, making sure to print out the upgrade key you receive at the end of the process.


Click "Start," then "All Programs" again and choose "Windows Anytime Upgrade."

How do i convert my acer netbook to english language from chinese?


You have to download and install a LIP (Lanaguage Interface pack) A LIP changes everything in Windows, to another language. but you cannot change the language Windows uses on the screen unless you buy the English version.

However IF it is Chinese Windows, then you will never really be 100% converted, the BEST way then, is to remove OLD Chinese Windows, and install a NEW English Version.

Normally just go to Control Panel, Regional and Language Option, click the Language tab, Details radio button, click Add radio button, click the drop down box and select the language. It may ask you for the distribution disc. Once multiple language had been added, a language switching Task Tray will appear near the normal Task Tray in the lower right corner. Shift-Alt will also switch the languages.


In Windows 7's Search programs and files box type Anytime and click on the Windows Anytime Upgrade icon that appears. Purchase a Windows Anytime Upgrade product key for Windows 7 Ultimate edition and upgrade to Windows 7 Ultimate. Afterward, visit Windows Update and download the English language pack.

I purchased Windows Anytime Upgrade with service Pack2. do I use 32 or 64-bitalso do I need to download Windows Vist Service Pak 2?


There is a nice article here about how the Windows Anytime Upgrade works.

Your questions is a little confusing. If the disk you purchased says it is "with service pack 2" I'm not sure why you would be asking this question.

So obviously there is more to it.

Anyway once you install the upgrade you should be able to go into Windows Explorer and drop down the help menu then choose the about option. This will tell you what version of windows you have and the current service pack level. If you don't have SP2 you can just download and install it.

Hope this helps.

Upgrade vista home premium


As per my knowledge, there is no version of Vista called Vista Professional like in Windows XP.
Make sure what is the version to which you want to upgrade to from Vista Home Premium to Vista Business or Vista Ultimate.
The available versions of Vista Operating Systems along with the features supported from the Link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/compare-editions/default.aspx

However, if you want to Upgrade the current version of Vista to a higher version like Vista Business or Vista Ultimate, you need to purchase Vista Anytime Upgrade kit from any retail store or directly from Microsoft.
You can find the required information related to Anytime Upgrade Kit from the link below :
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/anytime-upgrade-overview.aspx

However, make sure that you had created the Recovery Disks for your notebook using which you will be able to reinstall the preinstalled Operating Sytem along with all the Preinstalled Applications and Drivers after which you need to use the Vista Upgrade Kit to upgrade to higher version of Vista.
However, if you are currently having a 32 Bit Vista preinstalled in the Notebook, it is not possible to upgrade to a 64 Bit Vista since you can upgrade only a 32 Bit of Operating System to a higher version of 32 Bit Operating System and a 64 Bit Operating System to a higher version of 64 Bit Operating System.
Hope this helps....
