go to programs from the windows open icon( left hand lower task bar) right click on greetings workshop, click on properties and the drop down box will have a compatibility tab
click on that and select win 8 in the list and then the compatible patch above the list of os system provided
Windows 8.1 crazy enough has different hardware requirements than Windows 8. This has not been recieved well as it has left many people stranded on window 8 without being able to update to 8.1. here are the following requirements for Win 8 for both 32 & 64bit versions. Just remember if your machine does meet these it may not meet requirements of 8.1 so I would suggest you look up the requirements for 8,1 before you do anything.
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver
HDD free space
This model doesn't officially have Windows 8 support. That would be why the quick launch doesn't work. Also quick launch I believe for HP is only supported for Win 8 Pro and Enterprise versions, not the consumer version.
Was the computer purchased with Windows 8 or was it an upgrade? I ask because HP has yet to release a new driver for computers upgraded to Windows 8. If it's upgraded to Win 8, a cheap work around is to get a set of USB speakers that are Win 8 compatible until HP releases an updated driver. If the computer came with Win 8 installed, check you audio settings to insure the correct speakers (the ones you're trying to use) are set as "Default". Post back with your results as this is an ongoing issue with HP computers upgraded to Win 8.
My recommendation: Install XP. Well, not that there actually something wrong, but it initially came with XP or Vista. It depends. HP puts it a XP. Check your MS Product key sticker.
It is a simply determination that the laptop just does not have a enough resources to run Win 7 effectively. How do I know, I am using an HP 2.3GHz with XP. I tried Win 7 awhile back and immediately removed it. If fact, I do clean install of XP at least once a year. I do test more software than most.
Here is my Slow Windows Machine! default fix.
Sounds like not enough resources such as RAM and CPU. Check Performance in Task-Manager (CTRL-ALT-DELETE).
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.
Oh yea, in your case disable AREO, and use a virus protection with a smaller footprint. Like MS Security Essentials. My PC just couldn't handle McAfee or the likes.
You need to go to HP support and download the driver for this model or if this is your GPU (Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150) then you could also try the drivers from Intel support.
The VGA drivers do not support windows 8 as of yet or 64bit version of windows, only win 7 32bit is supported.
That version will only work with Win XP. Since Win 7 is all together a different operating system, many old software versions will not work with it. I am sure you will have to buy a different version to work with Win 7. See http://www.epinions.com/pr-Broderbund_American_Greetings_Creatacard_Platinum_8_047956855711/display_~full_specs
Not compatible or not working well with windows 7?
(making a program work with windows 7)
Maybe, It doesn't work because the driver/application you installed is
for other versions of operating system. I am also using windows 7 like
you so don't you worry, You can still use your old installer/driver from
other versions of operating systems. Just remember that before
installing any program in a windows 7 Operating System Computer, Use
"troubleshoot compatibility". Right Click the Icon of your program
installer/application first, then choose "troubleshoot compatibility". This will
allow you to choose on what type operating system your program will run.
Just reply back if it still doesn't work.:D rate and vote for me:))
