Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

Windows 7 Question

This is a question about windows 7 I'm trying to figure out for a month now.

Windows 7 is near, very near, the question is why people keep buying machines with Vista on them, don't they rather wait out till Windows 7 is out and wave bye bye to this joke of an operating system?

I know windows 7 will have it's fare share of problems at first, but it can't be worse then Vista, or can it?

Can Microsoft survive another fiasco like this?

What are your thoughts of Windows 7?

Windows 7 is based on the same architecture as Vista. Though there are some enhancements to make it faster than Vista is. People who are going for Vista will have the upgrade option with them to upgrade their computers to Windows 7.
I have installed Windows 7 and did not feel much of a difference expect some add ons or some subtractions from Vista

How do I re-install Windows 7?


If you have had Windows 10 for less than one month, you can revert back automatically. If it has been more than one month, and your machine has an original recovery partition, you may be able to use the hotkey combination and reinstall the original factory image. If you have neither option available, you need a Windows 7 disk to reinstall, or a set of recovery disks for your machine if you ever made a set.

I have an old Princeton VL 173 that I had been using with an old computer running Windows XP Pro. It works fine. Got a computer with an Asus MB and a Intel Core 2 Quad running Windows 7 Home Premium...


It sounds like a driver/software issue. When you ran the Princeton VL173 on XP you probably had all the correct software for your video card and the correct drivers to support your video output. When you changes OS to Windows 7, the XP drivers are no longer in place. My best guess is that you need to find and install the correct drivers for your system video and for your video card that are Windows 7 compatible. The old XP drivers will not work in Windows 7.

I am running XP with a Princeton VL173. It works great. I identified the correct video drivers for my system and installed them. My video card is nVidia 8800GT. I downloaded and installed the latest software from nVidia and installed it. It runs like a champ.

Several months ago my display died. It was just blank -- black. I tried using a power supply (AC adapter) from an old HP printer that died, and it worked! The plugs were identical, and the power output profiles were very nearly identical. It has been rinnung great for many months now.

I hope this helps.

No Windows 7 driver for a Canon F80


Good idea, Windows 7 is NO good if your equipment is less than a few months old... Pre 2008 stuff just isn't compatible. IMHO Win 7 is OK for brand new stuff, Otherwise I stick to XP... see everything works with XP..or nearly so.
