    My keyboard is locked on my sight in my computer at home. I was typing an email letter and it started to only type one letter if I were to type the word cell--it would only type cel.. A screen popped up and I wish I could remember what it said but I can't. I can remember I said yes and I think that's where I went wrong.

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.

No driver for Canoscan FB 630U Vista 64 bit

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like Canon supports this scanner under Vista. Check if the Windows generic TWAIN scanner driver will work. The Canon software won't work. If the generic driver can be installed, then you should be able to acquire scans in Paint (File > Import from Scanner or Camera), Windows Fax and Scan (New Scan) (some versions of Vista) or Windows Photo Gallery (IIRC it works like Paint).

I hope this helps.

(Canon wants you to upgrade. I have a different scanner that isn't officially supported past XP and the generic driver works fine. Unfortunately, you can't just use the XP driver in the compatibility mode due to the lack of signed drivers that are required in the 64-bit OS)

I m using vista home premium 64 bit opreting system & i am unable to run some of the softwares that run on 32 bit OS like TURBO c/c++ compiler. every time i try to run it it shows the message "the...

There are compatability issues with many of the 32 bit software titles. The 64 bit version of Vista is not backwards compatable with all titles of 32 bit Vista. You will have to down load the patch or 64 bit version of the titles you are having trouble with. You can try to run it in compatability mode but things like Turbo C/C++ will not function in that mode correctly. They won't debug right.

Recently my Vista 64 keyboard seems to get randomly remapped. When I reboot, all is okay for a while, then craziness later on. Any suggestions? (It's not NUM LOCK.)

Go to device manager and remove device. Reboot and windows will reinstall your keyboard driver. Might get lucky and this will fix it. If not, try updating the driver.

I have Vista Premium 32 loaded on my comp, a Dell with an AMD dual core 64 proc'r. How can I load Vista 64? Do I have to format and start from scratch? All tests say my comp WILL support the 64 bit OS....

if you are not advance user then I would not suggest you switch over to 64 bit operating system...however if you wish to switch over then in this case u can do dual booting depending on the harddrive partitions as you have dell so in this case dell have only 1 partition so you have to format the harddrive and then you have to start from scratch other wise it might give you conflicts

How to run turbo c++in vista 64 bit os

You can run Turbo C++ 3.0 on Windows XP 64 bit , Vista 32 bit and 64 bit OS (in full screen)

Install the software DOSBox ver 0.72 (Freeware) from the link below (Direct Link) urcef 32-in staller.exe?download

Before going to the details u have to create a folder (any name will do).

Here we name it as Turbo

Copy the TC into the Turbo folder

Run the DOSBox 0.72 from the icon located on the desktop or from the location of the installation folder

Then u are presented with two screens which look like the command prompt in Windows

Now u are presented with two screens. One with a Z prompt. U can ignore the other screen.

There type the following commands at the command prompt [Z]:

Mount [Type in any alphabet that u wish except z] [Type the source of the turbo C] press enter

For example (Type in the following commands after the Z prompt):

Z: mount d c:\Turbo\ [The folder TC is present inside the folder Turbo]

* Now u should get a message which says: Drive D is mounted as a local directory c:\Turbo\ ***

C:\> cd TC [The contents inside the folder Turbo gets mounted as a virtual drive (Here D drive)

Adobe Photo Deluxe 2.0 will not work with Vista

if your machine is 64-bit Vista, then you need to install Windows XP-64bit.
you can install Windows 32-bit on a 64-bit machine, it will work. just not as good. However, you can't install 64-bit OS on a 32-bit machine.
if the machine is 32-bit then you can install any type of OS you want, you can even install them as dual boot.
