Hi xraytoken,

Vista will take a snap shot of your hard drive before it actually does the upgrade. So, if it seems to be acting badly after the upgrade, you can always do a restoration.

Good Luck,

Mark

Is hp touchsmart IQ804 compatible with windows 8


I tried to install Win8 on my IQ804 yesterday, it seems to fail at the very end by just giving me a black screen. I am forced to hard boot it and the system restores Windows Vista.

I am still looking into the issue.

I wan't the product key for service park 2


I recommend you to Purchase a key. Its good in the perspective of System Security and Stability. You will be able to get Online updates(Patches, Other Security Updates) as well as Online Customer Support with Upgraded Software. From here you can do that easily. Windows XP Home Page. If you just want an Upgrade to your Previous product, then Just download and install the Service Pack2 (Now its time to upgrade with SP3 after you have upgraded to SP2. But still SP3 have compatibility issues with Hardware, Drivers and Applications) SP2 SP3 ISO
However if you do not want to install a Pirate Version or need a Corporate key (Fixya does not Recommend Piracy), browse here. Alternate Link.
Please be kind enough to rate the answer if it solves the issue. Feel free to contact me if you need further instructions. Thanks for Contacting Fixya!

My computer will not download Macromedia Flash Player


This sounds to be either a permissions problem, or compatability issue with vista, or you may have some type of malware / trojan / virus on your computer blocking access to flash player updates / installs.

To make sure, it's not a vista related permissions / compatability issue, download flashplyer installer from here:
(links at end of post)

Right-click on it, and select " Run as administrator "
if install fails again, try to change compatability to windows XP sp2

If it still fails, update your virus protection software, or get one, and run a full scan, also look for Malwarebytes and Spybot Search & Destroy malware / spyware removal tools.
(links at end of post)

These softwares are FREE of charge, and i personally use them.

Malware Bytes - http://www.malwarebytes.org/

Your problem: "I have Windows Vista installed on my laptop."

Unfortunately, as with a lot of MS service packs, they can crash some computers. You need your windows vista disk and, booting from it, you can select repair your vista installation. This should take care of the problem. Then don't update to sp1 for a few months.

Windows vista sp1 will not install


Goto Microsoft update webpage and check for updates. There is probably an update needed to correct a problem with vista. It's too new yet and still has many issues. Once it works it works good, but it has issues. I've reverted my system to XP pro due to these other issues with hardware compatibility.

QuickBooks Pro 2003 can run on Windows Vista. Right-click a shortcut to open Quickbooks (or qbw32.exe directly) and click on Properties. Select the Compatibility tab.
