Re: Keyboard locked in password prompt in Vista Ultimate...

It looks like your keyboard driver got messed up, especially if you are using a wireless keyboard or something.

Advise you reinstall vista and update the current one, that should keep your applications and files intact.

I have a compaq presario v3700 laptop. i installed a new win7 ultimate from win vista the original OS..and now i have a problem how i can use the camera..i need a software and shortcut to imaging...

Go to the HP Support site on the web and get yourself to the 'Drivers and Downloads" main page. Type in the p/n (product number) in the provided box and click go/arrow...whatever. When you're at your laptop's entry page for drivers, enter Vista as your operating system. If you're running 64 Bit W7 enter Vista 64. Almost all Vista Drivers work with W7. Look through the list of drivers until you find webcam/camera software/driver link. Download by SAVING to your desktop. Do not run the driver install from the HP/Compaq site. Double click the driver app icon on your desktop and follow the prompts. That should have you squared away.

Can't access laptop computer in safe mode, keyboard freeze up

Try booting your system from a LIVE cd like linux, a verson of Hiren's tools, or the UBCD (ultimate boot disc for windows). If your keyboard still freezes with the alternate OS, you may have a hardware malfunction.

OS loads but keyboard, mouse pad and usb ports

was there any liquid damage? just to check the intregrity of the hardware i would maybe boot off of a linux distro just to check and see if it works that way. ubuntu is free and if you can choose to "try linux without installing" option just to verify. this will let you know if it is a hardware or software problem.

Plz tell me how i can run c++ in full screen in vista ultimate


Use the command prompt. Maximize the window size. Change directory to c:. You will have a line that fits 75 characters and a window that occupies about 2/3 of the whole window. That's enough fore all reasonable problems. If you are not happy with what you get, you may try developping your C++ program under Linux.

Hope it helps

Integrated Camera is not reconized by vista 64-bit.. Please help me....

Very often you will find that not much older periferials like Cameras, Printers, Ipods, Scanners, and many Applications do NOT work with VISTA 64 Bit O.S..

First go to the CAMERA MANUFACTURER Customer Services or Website and see if they have a PATCH or another Driver for this camera so it can operate on VISTA 64 Bit. If it does, simply DOWNLOAD THE DRIVER AND "RUN" it and it will replace to old driver and your Camera will Run Properly,

If there is no Driver offered to run on 64 bit program then you have more serious issues that require more radical fixes which you have to evaluate on the basis of how much you need the Periferial or can there be a substitute that can run on the 64 bit program. 64 Bit programs are basically not much different from the much more popular 32 Bit Programs your camera would probably work on, no problem.

Try Calling Microsoft Customer Service and/or look on their Home Page for Solutions but generally the only alternative is:

1) Return the Camera and Exchange for one that runs on Vista 64 bit O.S.
2) Downgrade your Computer to a 32 Bit Version of Vista.
3) Look for the latest Beta Solutions you usually find on Google that may fix this

Vista 64 Bit O.S. Versions are only necessary if you are using more than 4 GB of RAM for e.g. GAMMERS who require a lot of Memory (actually up to 128 GB). Otherwise there is little difference between 32 and 64 bit versions. As VISTA was not that popular to begin with, many manufacturers did not bother providing UPGRADED SOFTWARE AND DRIVERS for VISTA 64 BIT assuming few would buy it off the shelf and mostly their product would be used with WIn XP or Vista 32 Bit until the Next Microsoft O.S. Came around.

Vista is a Memory Hog and as such should be used with only 4 GB of RAM for it to run properly. 3 is adequate, 2 GB its lethargic at best. VISTA 32 bit HAS A LIMIT OF 4 GB of RAM so that is cutting it close but still a better idea to "DOWNGRADE" to 32 Bit so your O.S. would be much more compatable with other Periferals and Software Applications. Many Periferals ( appliances) and Applictions will not run on 64 bit programs especially if they were designed before 64 bit was introduced. THE BEST FIX, IF YOU ARE NOT A RAD GAMMER REQUIRING MORE THAN 4 GB OF RAM is to "DOWNGRADE" TO VISTA 32 bit or even better to Windows XP if your computer can work with that O.S.: check with the Manufacturer. Your camera may even work on XP 64 bit.

Kodak still makes some nice disposable Film Cameras; you can take your pictures then have them developed, and scan them into your computer that is if your SCANNER STILL WORKS with the 64 bit program LOL

Good Luck

Forgot login password & fingerprint swipe isn't working

There are a lot of Windows password revealers and crackers available, but I’ve found that Windows Password Recovery Tool is the most effective.:
it not only supports XP, 2000, and NT, I have personally tested it with Vista Home Premium and Ultimate. It works perfectly to reset any local user account to a blank password
You can use the ISO to burn a boot CD. Follow these instructions:
1. Download ISO file from Windows Password Recovery Tool
2. Burn to a CD using a CD burning tool such as Nero or Roxio or MagicISO
3. Insert CD into drive and reboot.
4. You may have to select an option in the BIOS to get the computer to boot from the CD.
Booting up and clearing a password takes a minute or two works like a charm.

Log on screen freeze-up

If it is locking up because of corupt software then booting from a cd should allow you to reload a new os. But this sounds like a harware issue. If you install Visat on anything make sure it can handle it first. Vista take a monster machine minimun requirements are just that at min requiremnts it runs crippled.
