    What do you need to know?



    You need to think twice about changing if your system came with Vista. Many times you will have a difficult time finding drivers for all your hardware. It is not impossible, but it can be a major pain.

First changing computer opering systems is possible. A new Vista operating system has to be acquire from retails usually $200 value pack. Attempting the install new operating systems is achievable only may require expert to ascertian whether the old would have to be deleted to make way for new. usually inserting the new disk into disk drive should capture new effects.

The reason to allow technicain to perform the changes is to gurantee againts any situations that may occur least repairable by computer neophyte. estimate the program changes of $200 to acquire new system program and technicains experts installation may have raised costs. Installations of systems are usually same rates $49. Several options available to acquriing computers that has XP systems. Recent computers are windows 7. However, the used devices computer retails may have functioning computers with XP systems.

I wnat to reformat my com from window vista to window xp, i have the CD for window xp how can i do that


Best way is boot to the VISTA DVD and delete the NTFS partition. Once you have done that, you should be able to boot to the XP CD and install XP. Caution, make sure you have already downloaded and saved the XP drivers for this model system, before you do the XP install. Some vista systems do not have drivers for XP or have FIRMWARE issues with rolling back the OS on some devices (Dell bluetooth 360 is one)

Reboot


To Reboot a computer is to turn it off, wait at least 20 seconds, then turn it back on.

A.If you're thinking of Reboot, as to reinstall the Operating System, you use a Restoration Disk, (sometimes listed as Recovery Disk), insert it in your CD/DVD drive, and restart your computer.
(Just press the CTRL, ALT and Delete keys AT THE SAME TIME.
Not shouting. Windows XP and Windows Vista are examples of an Operating System)

B.If you're trying to install an Operating System, from a CD disk that you bought, I suggest you go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order, change the first boot device to CDROM. Insert the CD disk in your CD/DVD drive, and restart the computer.

If you buy a Full Installation CD disk, as listed above, you have to change the Boot Order.
For example:
1.You have Windows XP on your computer now. It has problems, and doesn't work correctly. Instead of getting the Restoration Disk from your computer manufacturer, you decided to just buy a genuine copy of Windows XP, and install it. (This is a Full Installation Disk)

The Windows XP you have installed now, will not let the one you bought install over it, by just putting the disk in the drive. Change the first boot device, in Boot Order to CDROM, and it will. The Windows XP you have now, will 'see' the Windows XP you're trying to install, as just the same version. You have to install a better version of Windows, in order for it to write over what is installed.
Such as Windows Vista.

2.You have Windows Vista on your computer, and are not happy with it. You would like to put Windows XP on instead. Windows XP is considered a lesser version, and Vista won't let it write over it.
Go to BIOS Setup, change the first boot device in Boot Order, to CDROM, and it will.

Cant install bluetooth drivers on my hp compaq nx 7400 notebook


Which operating system do you have on your computer? Windows XP or Windows Vista?

Windows XP

A detailed troubleshooting page for Bluetooth devices on Windows XP can be found here.


Windows Vista

If you have Windows Vista or that doesn't solve your problem. You can try typing in the name of your Bluetooth device you're trying to connect followed by drivers into google

For example, if I were trying to connect a Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 to my computer, I would type the following into Google: Microsoft Bluetooth Notebook Mouse 5000 Drivers

Good luck!
