    Have you cleared the "temp" folder that stores the data ready to burn to disc?
    I had similar problems with various authoring programs and found that this was the problem.
    Just run disc clean up or manually delete the temp files.

    Are you trying to burn movies or create them to put on the hard drive?

I installed a wierd bios on my compaq presario sr5710f desktop computer and am trying to reset the bios back to factory default. I have downloaded the bios setup file from hp's website and tried to...


Need more details on this situation. Was the Presario originally configured with Windows Vista Home Premium OS factory AND are you still running the original factory Windows Vista OS on it? I know that the original owner of my SR5710F had from the factory, Windows Vista Home Premium edition (32 bit). Compaq's website only shows 1 BIOS update available for this OS. If you try to run that executable file on any other version of Windows, you will get the error message that you described. I myself am working on being able to reflash the BIOS from a bootable CD/DVD/ or thumb drive. The executeable update to flash BIOS from Compaq's / HP's website indicates a version of 5.27. When I look at the CMOS memory, the screen reports a version of 5.31. How this happened in the life of this machine, I can only speculate. I do have the 3 dvd set which is supposed to re-image the hard drive to its factory released condition, but the load fails every time at the same place (3rd dvd, at 92% complete, with an error 1005). Compaq's / HP's web site does warn against flashing BIOS with any thing other than what the company certifies. I called Compaq tech support and their advice to me is to send in the motherboard. of which.. Im reluctant to do so as I am wanting to exhaust all the possible remedies before committing to buying a motherboard for upwards of 300.00 usd. Will stay in touch as things develop. Good Luck

Purchase a standard CD/DVD cleaning kit. (cheapest option first)

try using the cleaning kit and see if this solves the issue of reading/writing.

If you can use the cable connection
you can search for a new driver for the lan card for vista here:

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/pfinder?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&tool=&query=F700+#N284

Try using the auto detect function it will tell what model
you have.To get the right driver.

Also try use the microsoft update function
in your start button.

Hope this was helpfull.

Can I run Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium on my HP Compaq Presario SR2170NX PC Desktop


This computer came with Vista Basic. You can upgrade Vista Basic to Windows 7 Premium but it depends on your hardware. Go here: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/upgrade-advisor Run the upgrade advisor and follow their advice.

I have oem vista home premium and need to format


most computer makers put the restore on a partition of the hard drive that is accessed using an F-key on bootup. You should see f-key options displayed (very quickly) on booting up and one will be "restore". For example, on an HP machine, it'll be F11 you hit on boot up to go into the restore partiton.

Windows dvd maker , vista home premium o/s, hp pavillion laptop


I found the biggest problem with using win dvd maker is when windows asks you to format the disk first. If you do format the disk first then win dvd maker has problems writing to it. Only put the disk in the drive when win dvd maker asks you to other wise you will be taken through to format the disk first and if you choose to cancel that it causes silly problems. If you are trying to make more than one copy of the same disk and win dvd maker is acting up, just do the one copy and then close the program. Then use a program such as nero and make copies from within there. You can insert the disk open Nero and select copy disk, you can do this until you have all of the copies that you need. Personally I found that win dvd maker is too slow and laborious.

Problem in closing window of any internet explorer screen with Windows Vista Home Premium


I would recommend you to back all your work up, then with the use of the restore cds, re-build your laptop. Then see if you get the same problem. If you do, then you need to send the laptop back

Plz Help me to Install my Modem


The Presario v2000 has an Agere Systems AC'97 modem. The drivers for this device are not being supplieed anymore. the manufacturer for the modem says it does not work on Vista.
Some website, like this one, distribute the driver, saying that it wis working on Vista. But I cannot guarantee they work, it is likely they wont work on Vista.
If it definitively does not work you can buy an external 56k modem, like this one here or this other one.
