Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

1 Answer

Vista wont start up

First morning after buying a pc with Vista. Installed ok and I set up my internet. Went to sleap leaving my pc on and this morning I cant get my pc on. Screen is blank and power button on the box stays orange. This has not just happened to me but to my sister aswell. She bought a pc and same thing happened. The repair guy had to reinstall. Dont know if this was the same problem or if there is some "sleep mode" that was set as default and I cant get pc on to take it off.

To remove the sleep mode: right click the desktop and select Personalize, Click screen saver, at the bottom of that window you'll see "Change Power Settings" Click on that. Next to the left side of the window click on "Change when the computer goes to sleep and change the setting to "Never".. As far as why its doing it is unclear without hands on work, but you should have warranty for it. Tell them to fix it or try a differ brand of PC.

    Sorry....Force shut down the PC by pushing in the power button on the Motherboard till the PC turns off then restart it and follow previous instructions. Start a chat session with me if you need more help. Good Luck.

Lost internet,

Are you on vista? This sounds a lot like a problem I had on windows vista. Instead of trying to fix windows vista, how about you uninstall it, throw it away, then buy either windows xp or windows 7 and be much happier.

I have a computer where the MOBO and CPU went bad and I replaced. The old computer came with Windows Vista installed on it, no CD. Now, Windows Vista won't boot and windows start up repair is activated...

The problem is when Vista was installed on the old pc it only recognizes that pc so you will need to buy a copy of Vista and install it on the new pc. And if you don't want to loose your info you can buy a ide/sata to usb cable and hook it up to your new pc to transfer your old info across. Hope this helps.

It looks like, as you have so many OS on your pc. that there may be some conflicts there. But driver max should sort this. Oh and it's free so no worries there.

Bleeding the clutch line

It sounds like you have air in the system. Either they did not bleed it correctly or you have a leak in the system.
If you paid someone to fix your car, have it towed back to the garage and bled correctly or leak fixed. If a friend installed your parts, find a new friend. Just kidding.
