I had my comp. fixed and they put windows vista home premium on here and i can't play my old games that need xp what can i do


You can do 2 things:
1 - try to run them in XP mode  - right click on its icon, then Properties, then Compatibility, check 'Run this program in compatibility mode for' and select Windows XP in the drop down menu and finally at the bottom of the compatibility tab, check 'Run this program as administrator'.
2 - install http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/ , configure it and in it install XP and all the soft with problems, starting with the games.

Attemping to install software that came with the printr and computer wont see printer ... I have recently received a new computer at home and am just now attemping to install printer onto computer screen....


Need to know a bit more. Is this an older printer? It may not be compatible with your computer/OS. Try checking with your Operating System to see if it is compatible with the printer. Go to Windows Help to find out more about printer conflicts and compatibilities.

I have a new computer with Windows Vista. I have


No it looks like they stopped the support at the old one, this means they did'nt make any drivers for the old one to function on vista.
Vista uses a very diferent driver model than xp does.
The drivers for xp won't work in any way on vista.

Im trying to install an old printer on a new vista comp w/o disks


Windows Vista" is your operating system.
I would start by uninstalling (undoing) any of the printer software that you have installed, and try again. It sounds like at this point that you may have bits and pieces of both 'XP' and 'Vista' drivers installed.
Your link is pointing to the right page at Dell, just select the "driver" under the windows Vista tab.
I'm not sure how that software will be packaged, But I assume that it is self installing once you download it. You just click on it to start the installation. Usually you will leave you USB cable to the printer unplugged until after the installation, and then you are prompted to plug it in.
I'm not sure if this will help, but it's difficult to know exactly what you have done to this point.

I have an old printshop deluxe program and i am not able to load it into my new comp with vista.I love that program. I like the borders and i know how to use it.lol anyway it tells me my computer isnt...


This is one of the most common complaints with Vista - your old programs may not work. Your only solutions are to either buy a copy of Windows XP (what I would do, personally) and lose the Vista, or find a Vista-compatible version of Printshop. You can try this link, which Microsoft says it will update for free to make your old printshop compatable. If that doesn't work, there are 1000's of excellent free print programs at download.com here.

Windows vista


Windows Vista is the new operative system distributed from Microsoft, following the previous release of Windows XP.

An operative system is the interface between the user (you ) and the computer, that allows you to manage computer hardware resources and peripheral, and manage processes (software) running on your computer.

From the user point of view The operative syste is the environment where you run applications, manage connected devices, storing files and starting and stopping programs.

Vista is the latest OS released from Microsoft. It has a powerful interface, but it can be slow running on old computers. On vista you can also have some compatibility problem when you try to install old devices built for XP, such as printers, scanners etc.

Unable to install driver on my new computer


The best thing to do would be to contact the manufacturer of said camera and ask if they have a "Driver" thats written for Vista. Otherwise the only shot ya got is to install the software in "Compatibility Mode for XP" Vista and drivers is a nightmare for us engineers I have many, many customers that curse the day the switched to Vista.. and frequently they have ended up sourcing all NEW gear so it would work with Vista, hey maybe that all part of the Ahem "Plan"? Lol..
