Yes, you can use your XP disk (assuming XP is already loaded). Just make sure to get a complete list of your drivers (from device manager).

SOURCE: Problem with Installation of Windows 7 on Acer Laptop

Have you checked with Acer that your pc can accept Win 7.0?

if its not compatible then you may be floggin a dead horse with it, I doubt there will be many Win 7.0 drivers available yet for older systems but you may be lucky.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung NP-RF511 S04AU That won't start past the startup screen. I don't want to lose what is on my C drive can someone please help. I am running Window 7

Several things you can try.
Roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.

In Safe Mode try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, 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 only you initiate.

I have a dell inspirion laptop which originally came with vista that i bought used, prior to my purchase someone installed umbuntu, doesnt work want windows back

F8 brings up Windows Recovery Options, if Windows is gone, so are those options. When they installed Ubuntu they also most likely deleted the recovery partitions, so there's no longer anything to restore. If you can get your hands on an appropriate Vista install disc you can do a clean install using the key attached to your laptop (if it's still present/readable). I'd check with local computer repair shops and see if one of them has a disc they can copy for you.

There is no sound coming out of the speakers on the laptop, although the bottom right hand corner Sound icon shows sound being produced.

Hi pat_gill,

Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing?

When was the last time you have sound? Did you install any software or programs recently?

  • Please make sure that the volume is not set to mute.
  • Try to reinstall the sound driver. You can install the sound driver using the drivers disc that came with your computer or you can download it from the computer manufacturer's website (example: Don't forget to restart your computer after reinstalling the sound driver.

Hope that helps. Thank you for using FixYa.

The speakers built in won't work, I checked in control panel and it said that there was no audio device installed, what do I do? I have a NV4402u Model

If you see a yellow icon under "sound" on Device Manager then that means that your Audio driver was coruupted or damaged that's why it says that there was no audio device installed in control panel.

Uninstall/Reinstall your sound driver should do the trick.
1. Go to Device Manager
2. Highlight the corrupted driver of your sound card the one that has a yellow icon and then click the delete icon on the upper right hand side of the window (you can place your cursor on each icon on the top to see the delete icon)
3. Restart window in order for the changes to take effect
4. After restart windows will automatically installed the driver back

NOTE: If windows did not installed the driver back you can use the CD Driver that comes with your laptop when the first time you bought it.

1. Insert the disc
2. run the audio driver
3. Restart your computer in order for the changes to take effect

Hope this information will be helpful. Thanks for using Fixya.

My ms office got deleted wen my laptop got crashed can i download ms office 4 free as of now i don hav de ms cd now..

Did the MS Office (full version) come pre-installed on your computer when you purchased the computer ?
If yes, then you had paid for it, when you paid for the computer, so contact the manufacturer of your computer for it's product key, after which download the trial version of it and use your product key to get it activated.
If did was not pre-installed on your computer and you had it installed after you bought the computer, using it's disc and you have lost the disc (and product key), then the only option is to buy it again, either a disc version or a downloadable version.

Trouble shooting new os 10.4 tiger installation on mac pro

You sure you got the original gray label install discs for this computer? Sometimes people stick gray discs in with the computers and they are not specific for that model.  The Macbook Pro ships with Tiger 10.4.6
Borrow a black label Tiger retail disc from someone and install your OS that way.

Computer says IBM wireless adapters (802.11 or bluetooth) not ins

Hello Kangarootrib,
Since you bought the ThinkPad second hand and the software installation disc did not come with it, you should go to the IBM ThinkPad manufacturer's web site. Once there, look for your specific model and search for the proper drivers and download and install them on your current computer. Drivers are basically small bits of code that tell the operating system how to communicate with hardware devices, which when you purchase products new come with a CD that contains these instructions for your computer to be able to communicate with the device. Hope this helps and please let us know if you need further assistance.

P.S. If you would not mind, could you please rate my help as I would really appreciate it. Thank you
