Re: Gateway M305CRV

Hi, you still need to do the updates before you can put software on. On the desktop go to START....ALL PROGRAMS....then at the top you will see an item marked UPDATES. Click and go from there, it will download a lot of items as long as you are connected to the internet.

MS vista and MS office 2007 installation

You install disk is corrupt (probably from a scratch on the disk), you can download a new copy to burn, making sure it passes the MD5 checksum after download is complete (and use your key during installation).

Was the DVD damaged in so way? Does it show in Computer? Does it need driver? Which Gateway do you have? Windows Defender can be downloaded or fixed online.Do you have a Anti Virus that has turned off Windows Defender? Try MS Fix It: OR

Microsoft Word 2007 keeps crashing

Check websites for printer and wordand see if there are any updates to use or in the case of the printer a firmware update.

When you uninstall anyprogramme ensure you leave no files present on your machine. if it asks to keep anything then dont.

Also a good idea to uninstall microsoft office completely. reboot and install all again. Ensure you click on ALL work from HARD drive.

Ensure your printer driver is Vista compatible and the very latest with patches etc.

office first then printer software.... never add printer before dirvers are in.

Lost Microsoft Office 2007 , how do I get it back ?

If you lost the original media, that is not the problem. Installing Office 2007 that you can download from Microsoft's website will allow you to install the software. You just need to know your original installation key to activate it.

Any Office 2007 disc allows you to install a 30 day trial of the software.

My laptop, which was only purchased 3 months ago will not allow me to do anything in word Which is micro soft office 2007

I have a strong suspicion that your Office 2007 is a trial version that came with your computer, and your 90 day free trial is up.

Did you purchase the Office 2007 separately, or was it in your laptop as part of its bundled software?

Most new computers come with bundled TRIAL software such as MSOffice, and many others that only have a 90 day time limit before you have to purchase the software.

Please let me know if this helps.
