Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

2 Answers

Download problems I am trying to download a game from a website. I have downloaded the game onto another computer and it downloaded fine (that computer has XP) I am trying to download onto Vista and it starts to download and then after a period of time it appears to be finished early. Then when I click run I get the message saying something about not Win32 something. I have tried deleting the temporary internet files, I have all Microsoft updates and it still won't let me download. Can you please help. Thanks Tammy Robeson

Re: Download problems

The problem is your Vista does not have win32 application, i mean vista is designed for 64 bit cpu not 32 bit cpu, when you install the game on XP, XP support your 32 bit CPU that's why game works on XP.

Re: Download problems

Have you tried right clicking on the install icon and running it as administration?
With all new installed files that dont run as normal try running them as administration.
Hope this helps.
If not please post the exact error message that comes up when you click run.

Microsoft updates

It's not always a big deal if they don't download. All depends on what it is. Microsoft tends to have that issue sometimes but if you really want to download those updates you can always go onto their website and dowload them from there.

My problem is that when i tried to update my asus made ati eah5770 graphics card it malfunctioned my computer. I could not increase my resolution from 640*480 and it also shows only 4 colors instead of...

Go to and download an updated driver for the 5770 When you install the software you'll have the chance to install or uninstall you want to uninstall so this will remove any old ati drivers that might be causing this problem. Then go back after you restart the computer and run it again but this time install the new drivers and this should take care of your problem.

From where i can download ea sports games not buy plz tell me atleast 4-5 websites... if any

First of all I would recommend you to buy the original game.

If you want to download the game from the internet you can use torrent sites( like,,, etc)

To download a file from a torrent site you need to know the name of the game and you need to have a good torrent client.
You can download a torrent client from the internet few good clients are utorrent, bitorrent, bitcomet, vule etc. all these clients are free of cost and you can download them by just searching them in google.
After you download and install a client(iwould recommend utorrent) you can go to a torrent site.
search the game you want to download. It will list a number of search results. Choose the result which got good seeders. Download the torrent file. Open the torrent file with the previously installed torrent client. And continue downloading your game. Enjoy the game. If you like the downloaded game dont forget to buy the game.

I have no network adapter installed after an os repair what do I do to fix it

go onto your computer manufacturers website and look for support, driver downloads. Use your computer model, serial number or service tag number, depending on your manufacturer. Get a list of driver downloads and look for your network downloads. Download the correct driver for your Network hardware. Than install the driver onto your system.

I hope you found this information helpful. I could not be more specific not knowing the make, or model of your computer.

If you did find it helpful, please leave that feedback for me.

Get sound fine but video wants to start, then

just go to the adobe website and click on the update flash player button, it should automatically update your flash play. Alternativly use this link to download and install it manually.

That should sort out the problem, sometimes your web browser will block the updates from Adobe due to security restrictions. Also you need to be an administrator on your computer to install the update.

How do I download music onto a cd?

You will have to download the music files (MP3's) onto your local computer's hard drive first. Then using your preferred burning software, insert a CD-R or CD+R depending on your CD drive (burner). It may be dual format and burn both, but you need to use the proper CDs to burn otherwise you will get errors and they won't burn, and then follow the instructions pursuant to your burning software. I hope this helps and good luck!

Unable to download games on my computer and if it is a driver issue unable to find a free driver for it


i think
Game is to heavy for your computer to run
Might need more free memory or your sound & Graphic card are not supporting this game. Before you download any aplication from any website make sure your computer meets the reguirements, Such as Operating system, sound and Graphic card and make sure you have enough Ram space to run the software.
