How do i downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7 pro reinstall without CD


It is not possible to degrade from Win-8 to Win-7
You have to re-partition the hard disc. All the data stored will be lost. You can upgrade an OS; but can't degrade it. Never try to do more; as it might make the HD damaged. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

How to turn off windows 8/ IE


Windows is hard to get used to.

Click on the tools at the bottom of the drop down list Managed add ons

Right click in the bottom toolbar (Bottom of Screen) select the toolbars option then Desktop this will add >> arrows in the bottom toolbar select the arrows you will see a list with control panelwhich has another list of all control panel items.
Downgrading to windows 7

When Windows 8 was released, Microsoft touted its advanced features, including a fast bootup time and the capability to use the same operating system for desktops, laptops and tablets.

At the same time, many of the design choices in Windows 8 were controversial and, as with most new operating systems, hardware driver support was initially spotty.

To support customers that prefer Windows 7, Microsoft created a cost-free downgrade path for some versions of Windows 8. If you aren't eligible a free downgrade, though, you have other options. Windows 8 Pro Downgrades
If you have the business-oriented edition of Windows 8, Windows 8 Professional, you have the right to downgrade to Windows 7 Professional, but you will need to have your own Windows 7 CD and product key to do this.

Doing the downgrade consists of installing the older operating system on the computer and then calling Microsoft for permission to activate Windows 7 in the event that the product key had already been used.

There is no charge to do this, but completing the process can be time consuming.

Windows 8 Consumer Downgrades
Consumer versions of Windows 8 don't come with free downgrade rights.
To legally downgrade to Windows 7, you will need to have both a Windows 7 CD and a product license that will allow you to install the operating system.

In other words, you'll have to pay for both operating systems.
If you are looking to buy a new computer and don't want Windows 8, consider buying one that still ships with Windows 7 preinstalled.

Simulating Windows 7
If you don't want to deal with the hassle or potential expense of downgrading, you can re create much of the Windows 7 user interface on Windows 8.

One option is to add third-party software programs like Start8, Classic Shell or StartIsBack to access the Start menu.

You can also tweak your system's settings to automatically boot to your desktop instead of the Windows 8 Start screen while also replacing some of the built-in applications that interface with the Start screen with other ones that are desktop friendly.

Why Not Downgrade
If you need to use a piece of unsupported hardware, you might not have the option of using Windows 8 at all.

As Windows 8 matures, however, more hardware drivers are becoming available.
Given that Windows 8 offers a powerful search tool as well as fast bootup times, it has some real advantages over Windows 7.

If you can either learn how to use the interface or are willing to modify it to better suit your preferences, staying with Windows 8 may be a better option for you.

I cant get sound on my packard bell top


Hi,

Tell me when did your speakers work fine?
Make sure the speakers are turned on and not set on mute.
Open control panel - click sound option - make sure options are not greyed out here.. if they are then you need to install the sound drivers...

Let me know your computer model number hope that i can paste the link to download the driver..

Thanks..

Hi,

I am assuming that you downgraded to Windows XP. For the WinXP sound driver of a Realtek Audio as used in an Acer Aspire 4315, pls try (ftp://202.65.194.212/pc/audio/WDM_A405.exe). Should you still want the Vista driver, pls download from here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
