How do I down load Windows 2007 to my computer


Hi,

First of all its not windows 2007, its Windows 7. There are two options. Both need Win7 CD/DVD.

1. if you have currently vista installed, you can upgrade it by inserting the win7 dvd and selecting upgrade.
2. If you want a fresh installation, make sure the win7 DVD is bootable. That means when you insert the dvd in drive and turn you system on, the DVD should start win 7 setup.

Step 2 requires that your first boot device should be the DVD ROM. If you dont know how to check or set this, please revert with what computer do you have. Make/Model.

Hello,
The device may not be detected by Win7, that can only be detected w/ other OS version, cause i have the same problem w/ win 7 ultimate 32bit, the Magic Jack is not working but it will work w/ win Vista and XP. try getting the SP1 for win 7 and install driver for that device and see if it will work, or you can also try installing vista on one of the partition and see if that will work.
Thank you for Using Fixya

My laptop keeps saying ntdlr is missing and wont start up what should i do


Check to see if you have inserted any DVD/CDs in the CD/DVD drive or any USB/External storage medium connected to the PC when it is booting. If yes, then try removing them and reboot

If no, then try using the Boot File Repair option on Win7/Win Vista installation DVD.

My computer crashed win7 theme error


try to boot from windows7 cd-rom, without installing it, choose fixing errors.

if impossible at first try,

press F2-button while system boot(before windows takes over),
enter bios-setup and change

BOOT DEVICE PRIORITY to

1st: CD/DVD
2nd: Hard disk/HDD
3rd: (whatsoever availabe)
.
.

please remember to exit BIOS saving changes!
(press Esc button after changing the above, confirm: ...Exit bios saving changes ? - Yes)

if you are asked now :

boot from cd-rom or hdd ?

choose cd-rom, let it work and wait.
in the following, do not reinstall windows 7
but choose a repair option,
leave the setup, remove cd/dvd etc from all drives and reboot, wait.

the regular windows screen should show up...
if this does not work, please ask s.o. who knows around with win 7 or think of downgrading from win7 to winxp professional.
as it is older but reliable, still supported and some win-pro's use it.
win 7 features are available but you'll need time to set up the whole system, incl. drivers etc.

this could work...if not ask me to post some links



now retry to boot from Windows 7 CD-ROM,
do not install, cjoose repa

all i can recommend: if you are a bit into computers, think of swapping from windows 7
