    Sibelius 5 student edition will not run on brand new sony vaio GVN-NR38S running Vista home premium. A dialogue box appears, 'Sibelius has encountered a probem and has stopped working'. There is no prompt to enter the licence code. I have tried installing from different locations in the c-drive and from a copy of the files in the C-drive s well as from the CD. The same CD has no such difficulty on a Dell pc running XP.

    Sibelius installs to our Windows Vista but the computer won't run the programme - a dialogue box states that Sibelius has stopped working and that's it - no programme!

Errors on install of sibelius:

Luckily, there is a installation assistant that solves this problem! You can visit the help page here, there you can download an install assistant. Once downloaded simply run it and follow the on screen instructions.

For a direct link to the assistant click here.

Errors on start up of Sibelius:

If you have AVG antivirus, Google Desktop or Adobe acrobat pro installed. Then you can experience start up problems when opening sibelius.

I found that if you download updates for all three programs (or just the ones you have). Then sibelius will start up properly.

I had this problem on an Acer laptop -

I just uninstalled google desktop as i did not need it and updated avg.

Taking the Sibelius disk out sorted it for me.
You definitely need to uninstall Google Desktop too.
Good Luck!

Can I use a Sony Vaio windows 7 upgrade disc for a toshiba vista laptop?

Probably not. If it is specifically for Sony. Otherwise you can purchase a disc from Fleabay quite cheaply.

How do you install windows xp on toshiba satellite p205-s6347

You need a Windows XP installation CD plus the product installation code.
You may find purchasing Windows XP Pro difficult as it is not widely available now and it soon will no longer be supported by Microsoft.
I recommend you keep Windows Vista.
This model Toshiba can installed with Windows Vista home Premium.

I would like to scratch-install the new WINDOWS 7 on the TOSHIBA P105-S6114. Is this okay? Are there any problems I may encounter?


ecommended Windows 7 Installation Method SelectionToshiba provides support for installing Windows 7 on laptops built since 2007. Depending on your model, Toshiba recommends using one of the following software tools as part of the Windows 7 installation process, to support ongoing use of Toshiba provided features and functionality:
  • Toshiba Upgrade Assistant for Windows 7, for upgrading from Windows Vista to Windows 7 on laptops made in 2009
  • Toshiba Software Installer for Windows 7, for performing a Custom Installation of Windows 7 ("clean install") on laptops made 2007-2009
Find your laptop's serial number on a sticker on the bottom of the laptop, note the second character in that serial number, then click on the matching link in the list below for instructions on Toshiba's recommended Windows 7 installation method for your model.
For all laptops made since January 1, 2007*
When upgrading from Windows Vista (not a Custom or "clean" Install)
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 7 or 8, click here.
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 9, click here.
When upgrading from Windows XP, or doing a Custom Install ("clean install") from any operating system
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is 7, 8, or 9, click here.
  • if the second character of your laptop's serial number is not 7, 8, or 9 then it was manufactured prior to 2007.*
* Installation of Windows 7 is not supported by Toshiba for laptops made prior to 2007.

Hope it helped.

Sibelius 5 keeps shutting down when I save

Try a system restore point prior to the date you started experiencing issues and see if the registry repair does the trick. If your Vista software has a repair facility, use it. Otherwise it is an OS issue and you may have to reload the machine from scratch using the recovery software that came with it. No software? - if so, in deep doo doo.

Installation problem with Sibelius 5 on Vista

You don't say what the nature of the installation problem is, but you should make sure you are logged into your computer as an Administrator user. You could also try clicking the 'Browse this disc' button in the menu that appears when you insert the DVD-ROM, go into the Windows/Sibelius folder and right-click SibeliusEnglishInstaller.msi in order to choose 'Run as Administrator'.

If you are still having problems, contact Sibelius technical support using the email address and phone numbers provided in the 'Latest information and technical help' sheet in your Sibelius 5 box.
