Tried to update win 7 to win 8 but when loaded receive message OXOOOOOO5D nowcan,t start computer


windows 8 is far better than windows 7

To install Windows 8 on your PC, the processor (CPU) must support the following features: Physical Address Extension (PAE), NX, and SSE2. Most CPUs have support for these features, so if you receive this error, it is likely because the NX feature is not enabled on your system. To resolve this error, follow manufacturer guidelines to enable NX ("No eXecute bit"), or the equivalent XD ("eXecute Disabled"), feature within the BIOS settings. This feature is typically found in the Advanced or Security tabs within the BIOS settings, and can be referred to by a variety of names, including but not limited to: • No Execute Memory Protect • Execute Disabled Memory Protection • EDB (Execute Disabled Bit) • EVP (Enhanced Virus Protection) If the BIOS setting for the NX (XD, EDB, or EVP) support option is not available on your system, you may need to contact the manufacturer to update the BIOS. Note that some very old processors may not contain these features and will be incompatible with Windows 8 Release Candidate. A whitepaper has been published with further details about the PAE/NX/SSE2 requirement for Windows 8, error cases and scenarios that customers encounter when machines fail to meet the requirement, and what to do to install Windows 8 on their PC's. You can download the whitepaper at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/hh975398.aspx

Heres a Few Tips to Speed up WIndows Vista...


1.Turn off Windows Search Indexing
Windows Vista search indexing is constantly reviewing files on your system to make their contents available for quick searching. This is handy, but can severely impact system performance.
To disable this constant indexing:
* Click Start then Computer
* Right Click the C: Drive
* On General Tab, Uncheck Index this drive for faster searching
* On the subsequent dialog box, Select Include subfolders and files
2. Turn off Remote Differential Compression
Remote Differential Compression measures the changes in files over a network to transfer them with minimal bandwidth rather than transferring an entire file that has previously been moved. By constantly checking for file changes, this service can hinder system performance.
To disable this service:
* Open Control Panel
* Switch to Classic View
* Select Program Features
* Choose Turn Windows features on and off
* Scroll down and uncheck Remote Differential Compression
3. Turn off Automatic Windows Defender Operation
Windows Defender real-time protection against malware continues to run despite having Automatic operation disabled.
To disable this feature:
* Open Control Panel
* Select Windows Defender
* Choose Tools from the top menu
* Select Options
* Uncheck Auto Start at the bottom of the window
4. Turn off Automatic Disk Defragmentation
Windows Vista and its always-on defragment feature isn’t really that necessary and can cause system slow down. Just remember to run a defrag manually every week or so.
To disable this:
* Click Start then Computer
* Right Click the C: Drive
* Select the Tools Tab
* Uncheck Run on a schedule
5. Add a 2GB or higher USB Flash drive to take advantage of Windows Ready Boost (Additional Memory Cache)
Ready Boost is Microsoft’s name for using a USB thumb/flash drive to provide some quick access memory the operating system can use as extra RAM. The Ready Boost system can significantly improve system performance.
To set this up:
* Insert a USB Flash Drive (preferably 2GB or more)
* Click Start then Computer
* Right Click the USB Drive in My Computer
* Select the Ready Boost Tab
* Choose Use this device
* Select as much space as you can free up for RAM usage vs. Storage
6. Turn off Windows Hibernation
Windows hibernation background services can use a large amount of system resources. If you don’t use the Hibernate feature on a regular basis you may want to disable it to give Vista a performance boost.
To disable Hibernation:
* Select the Control Panel then Power Options
* Click Change Plan Settings
* Click on Change Advanced Power Settings
* Expand the Sleep selection
* Expand the Hibernate After selection
* Crank the selector down to zero
* Click Apply
7. Turn off System Restore
Analysis and restore point creation by Windows Vista can eat a fair amount of system resources. Disabling this service will obviously mean the system restore feature in Vista will not be available in the event of a system crash. Change this at your own risk.
* Control Panel>System
* Click System Protection on the left panel
* Uncheck the main system drive
* Agree to the confirmation
8. Disable User Access Control (UAC)
This much-loathed new Vista feature attempts to protect your system from malware infection by making you manually confirm a whole host of everyday user operations. While it doesn’t directly impact performance, it can be annoying and might be more hassle than good.
To disable User Access Control:
* Click Start then Control Panel
* Select User Accounts
* Select Turn User Account Control on or off
* Uncheck User Account Control Box
* Restart as recommended
9. Disable excess Windows Services that Auto-Launch at Startup
Just like Windows XP, Vista ships with all kinds of services enabled that load at startup and may never be used by most users.
To see what loads at startup and disable the ones you likely won’t be needing (they can always be started manually later):
* Click Start then Control Panel
* Select Administrative Tools
* Choose System Configuration
* Click the Services Tab
* You can safely deselect:
– Offline Files (unless you’re using Offline File Sync)
– Tablet PC Input Service (unless you have a tablet PC)
– Terminal Services
– Windows Search (If you have already disabled indexing)
– Fax (unless you’re using a fax modem)
10. Disable Excess Windows Features
Windows ships with other features that are listed separately in the Vista operating system from the startup services.
You can view and disable these features by:
* Clicking Start then Control Panel
* Select Program Features
* On the left panel, select Turn Windows Features on or off
* You can safely deselect:
– Indexing Service
– Remote Differential Compression
– Tablet PC Optional Components
– Windows DFS Replication Service
– Windows Fax & Scan (unless you use a modem for faxing)
– Windows Meeting Space (unless you use the Live Meeting Service)

KtmRm for Distributed Transaction Coordinator (Disable) High level networking
Remote Registry (Disable) I really don't want someone else in my Registry, remotely!
Secondary Logon (Disable) No need----I'm the only logon----ever!
Security Center (Disable) No need if you are running another Security Program
Tablet PC Optional Components

Windows Fax & Scan (unless you use a modem for faxing)
Windows Meeting Space (unless you use the Live Meeting Service)
Windows Firewall (As long as you are running another Firewall)
Windows Search (If you never search the internet without your browser)



12. Stop Security Notifications
You must do this BEFORE you disable the Security Center Service. In the Notification Area which I call systray (bottom-right where the time is), right-click on the Security Shield and choose Open Security Center. On the left choose Change the way Security Center alerts me, then choose Don't notify me and don't display the icon. The shield will disappear.

13. Disable Windows Vista Sidebar and prevent it from running at Start-up
Right-click in the Sidebar area and choose Properties. Then uncheck Start Sidebar when Windows starts. If you want it back for some reason---You can start it any time by simply typing "sidebar" in the search bar of the start menu. This one is a big memory user and WILL slow things down on a normal machine. I found it fairly useless.

14. Speedup Start Menu Search
Start Menu Orb >>>>Run>>>>type in regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows/CurrentVersion/Explorer/Advanced.
Find and right click on Start_SearchFiles and select Modify. Set the Value to 0.
Don't reboot yet till you have done Step 6

15. Speedup Menu Display
Start Menu Orb >>>>Run>>>>type in regedit
HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Desktop
Select MenuShowDelay from the settings on the right
Set Value to 200 (I find 0 way to fast...)
Reboot



16. Do an Advanced Disk Cleanup
Start Menu Orb >>>>>Run, type: cleanmgr /sageset:50
Select the options you want, I think it is fine to choose them all. Click OK and close out the window. (there is a space between the r and the /)
Start Menu Orb >>>>>Run, type: cleanmgr /sagerun:50 (there is a space between the r and the /)

How do i change my wallpaper for my HP Mini 210-1191NR i can change my screensaver justdont know how to chnge my wallpaper??


You have Genuine Windows 7 Starter on your system. Microsoft locked the wallpaper and several other features in this dumbed down version. Your only choice is to buy, yes BUY, a better version of Win7.
If this answers your question, I'd appreciate 4 thumbs. I do this for fun and do not get paid.

USB PORT FIX WIN 7


Method 1
*For Microsoft Windows Vista (and windows 7) Click Start, and type device manager in the Start Search box. Click Device Manager in the Programs list. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password or click Continue. In the Device Manager dialog box, expand Universal Serial Bus controllers. Right-click USB Root Hub and then click Properties. In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog box, click the Power Management tab. Remove the check from the Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power check box. Repeat steps 1 through 4 for each USB Root Hub listed in the Device Manager.

Under Power settings, check the 'USB settings' -> 'USB selective suspend settings' and make sure it is disabled.
Check Thumbnail, highlighted: Open Device manager, Double click on Universal Serial Bus controller at the bottom, Double Click USB Root Hub, Click Power Management on top right, Uncheck Allow Power...
Method 2
*You can disable the USB Selective Suspend feature as a workaround by editing the registry. The USB device may become unresponsive because of a race condition in the Selective Suspend feature. The Selective Suspend feature suspends the USB device to efficiently maintain battery power by enabling the computer to turn off the USB device. However, sometimes this feature may not correctly wake up the USB device. Therefore, the USB device is unresponsive when you try to use it. You might want to disable this feature for server products where power management is not important or required. *To disable the Selective Suspend feature, follow these steps: Click Start and then click Run. Note If you are running Windows Vista, click Start, and then use the Start Search box. Type reedit, and then click OK. Registry Editor opens. Locate and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\USB If the DisableSelectiveSuspend registry entry is present, double-click it. If it is not present, create the entry. To create the entry, follow these steps: On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD. Type DisableSelectiveSuspend, and then press ENTER. On the Edit menu, click Modify. In the Value data field, type 1 to disable the Selective Suspend feature, and then click OK.

I have (stupidly) disabled the NAT feature of my Belkin wireless G router, without specifying an IP address to access it, and so can get no access to the wireless network from any pc. Is there a way to...


to turn the NAT feature back on in the belkin router, just reset it.

And you can always tell what address (known as the gateway address) access the router, which ip,

by clicking start, run, and then type cmd and click 'OK'

in the black window that pops up, type 'ipconfig' without the commas and hit enter on your keyboard

look for the default gateway

if nat was on, or after you reset it,

its 192.168.2.1

type 192.168.2.1 in the address bar of internet explorer to access the router

most routers default password is ither admin , or password

spin
