I am running win 7 & when tried to install xp its showing compatibility problem . pl reply

Remember.... the OS compatibility is only lower to upper...not upper to lower....i.e.....
Win7 is higher than u cant run / install WinXP using Win7...but u can do the otherway round....i.e...1st u can install WinXP in C: drive, then let the machine start, once u get to WinXp dekstop then install Win7 in D: drive...(it's called Dual Boot) on the boot screen u can choose which OS to work with when the PC starts....
all the best

Cannot connect my MT6225 china phone to my laptop thro the USB. what can i do?

hello, u may have to download the proper drivers plus data manager software from the manufacturers homepage,
they have to fit vista!

if there are just ones for winxp or lower win/versions available, either try connecting phone to a winxp/interent-pc and go through driver-install and so on
or think about downgrading your system to win-xp professional!

win vista is fine but not as reliable as winxp/pro!

good luck
