You are using the original mother board so when you are installing the cd, instead of autorun it is giving the message processed timed out. Now do one thing go into the cd through explorer then go into each directory of the drivers you want to install (eg. for sound go to sound directory and so on.... ) and I know that your all the problems will be solved. 100 % guaranteed

    In your cd there is a directory by name SOFTWARE and in that by the name DRIVERS an in that you will get AUDIO, USB2.0, VIDEO, from that you install the softwares which should work for you.

Upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 - it is possible!


Windows XP has been around for over 12 years. With that much time in use, there are bound to be situations where exporting data, finding install disks, installing the new OS, reinstalling the program and then restoring the data is not a viable option or is doomed to fail. What can you do if you are faced with this situation? Simply, upgrade the system to Windows 7!

Despite Microsoft's claim that there is no upgrade path from Windows XP to Windows 7, there is a way to make this happen. As a consultant, I am faced with this issue several times a month and fully expect this to rise as more companies transition to Windows 7. The reasons to upgrade the existing system range from legacy databases that cannot easily be exported and imported, software that is permanently associated with the specific PC hardware and software that require a hardware dongle that does not work with newer PC's. Regardless of the reason, there is a way to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7.

Let me say at this point that the process to upgrade Windows XP to Windows 7 is involved and there are some things you will need to prepare for to make this process successful. If you have Windows XP 64 bit, you can upgrade to Windows 7 64 bit. If you have Windows XP 32 bit (as most installs are), you will have to use Windows 7 32 bit.

Tools you will need:

1. Download Windows Upgrade Advisor
2. External hard drive
3. Windows Vista Business Edition Service Pack 1 (no license needed)
4. Windows 7 Professional with license

The Prep:

As with any major change, you need to create a backup of the existing system. Use your favorite method of backing up the OS, data and system settings (I prefer to use Ghost to get an entire image of the hard drive in a short period of time).

Create the backup of Windows XP:

Before continuing, disconnect all hardware from the PC and uninstall all printers, scanners and any other hardware devices that will need a new Windows 7 driver. This step will save you time troubleshooting a failed device once Windows 7 is installed.

Also, verify the Administrator account log in and password or setup a new local Administrator level user login and password.

Run Windows Upgrade Advisor. This will indicate if there are any software or hardware that is currently in use that absolutely will NOT work with Windows 7. Evaluate all non-compatible software and hardware issue with the user and see if this is a "show stopper".

You can still proceed with the upgrade and see if you can make the software or hardware to work by changing the compatibility settings in Windows 7.

The Process:

With Windows XP running, put the Windows Vista Business disk in and start the upgrade process. When prompted, choose UPGRADE. (This process can take some time so be patient.) Let this finish and the system will reboot. Verify Windows Vista is properly installed by logging in using the local Administrator account.

Reboot Windows Vista at least 2 times, logging in each time, to ensure the new OS is working correctly.

With Windows Vista running, insert the Windows 7 disk and start the upgrade process. Choose the UPGRADE option again and let this complete (again, this will take some time so be patient). Once Windows 7 is installed, the system will reboot. Use the local Administrator account to login and test the OS to ensure it installed properly.

Test everything:

Test everything - log into each program and verify access and functionality. Do not skimp on this step - get the user to log in and watch them run their programs.

Once initial testing is complete, re-install the printers, scanners and other hardware that will need updated drivers to work correctly.

I have followed these steps numerous times and it has worked perfectly each time. Removing the printers and hardware before upgrading will save you time and was a lesson I learned after my first upgrade.

Install Unsigned Drivers on Windows 7 & Vista with Driver Signature Enforcement...


Every time when we try to install any hardware drivers which are not signed by microsoft, Windows shows a warning of Unsigned driver dialog box. The reason of showing warning message is to protect the stability of your Windows operating system as such drivers are not passed in Microsoft windows driver compatibility test.
In Window XP you can still install unsigned drivers but in Windows Vista SP 1 and Windows 7 Microsoft has introduced very restricted module of driver signature enforcement which doesn’t allow us to install any incompatible unsigned drivers.
If you want to bypass or disable Unsigned Driver warning message then Here is small freeware utility Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider which allows you to install and load unsigned drivers dynamically on your Windows 7 and Vista.

Supported Operating System
1. Windows Vista 32-bit & 64 bit
2. Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit
Download Drive Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b
Please Note: User Account Control (UAC) must be disabled in-order to use this tool.

I have installed window xp in my hp 520 laptopbut sound driver is failing to installi hav tried it many times but in vainit was working in previous xp window i do'nt know what to do?


You have not install the drivers correctly.

Since your model audio is HD, you have to install the XP update first ie "Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio (sp33867)", before installing the device sound drivers "Conexant CX20549-12 Audio Driver for Microsoft Windows XP".

ACER 4720Z


seems that it's a SATA drive and the drivers are not included in XP.
There are some tools available to include these drivers into the XP CD.
Search the net for 'xp-iso-builder' or 'n-Lite'.

This is not necessary if your laptop's got a floppy drive (i don't think so). Then the SATA drivers can easily be loaded by pressing F6 when booting from the XP CD.

How to install XP in toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop


You cannot uninstall Windows Vista, but you can reinstall your previous operating system, which then replaces Windows Vista. To reinstall your old operating system, you must have the original installation disc. Back up your programs and files, insert the installation disc into your computer, and then reinstall the old operating system. To regain the hard disk space used by Windows Vista, reformat the disk during the reinstallation process. After reinstalling your previous operating system, reinstall your programs and files.
