Before you install the new motherboard make sure you have all of Windows updates installed on the hard drive. Microsoft is working hard to include many new devices all the time. You should have no problem booting into Vista after the motherboard is intalled and your motherboard should come with a driver disk to install any drivers that Vista may miss.

I've updated the BIOS but still can not get the mother board to consistantly recognize a new 1T Hard drive. It works once, but when I reboot it corrupts the Windows XP and the recovery partition.


Can you temporarily attach the "new" disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in some other computer?
Then, write some files onto the disk-drive, restart the computer, and see if the files are corrupted.
If they are, then the disk-drive is defective, and can easily be replaced, under warranty,
either from where you bought it, or directly from the manufacturer.

If the files are OK, then it's your motherboard that is the problem.

Have deleted vista off toshiba satelite s2276, deleted all partitions, repartitioned to single large drive, formatted, booted from floppy, win 98 se setup started and working until installing drivers then...


If your system came with Vista pre-installed it is likely there are no XP or eariler drivers available for it, in which case you will have to stick with Vista or Windows 7.

I bought an emachines computer about a year ago with vista home. My hard drive died, how do I install vista on a new drive, I have no install disk for vista.


You'll need to contact the manufacturer.  After they confirm the product serial # (you should write down both the product number and Microsoft license # before you call) they will send out a recovery disk (they will probably charge you for them).  If the old hard drive is still installed, you can attempt a recovery by booting and hitting the ALT key while tapping the F10 key repeatedly to initiate the recovery mode which is stored in a partition on the hard drive.  The partition is probably still good although the "C" drive is no good.

Webcam driver probably did not install properly.

Go to Device Manager. Unistall the Webcam. Reboot.

Vista will scan for new hardware, locate the Webcam and reinstall the driver.

Good luck.

Can't get NEC Litepad to recognize new Toshiba 1.8" MK2004GAL


I've read on other web forums that the recover disk only works with the original drive partiions. There's a hidden partition on the original drive that the recover disk uses to install the OS (maybe other software too). You'll need to clone/copy the original disk partitions to the new hard drives and then you'll be able to use the recovery disk.

How can i install windows Xp on hp pavilion dv 2601


assuming this came with Vista pre installed, you will need to purchase a copy of XP and my advice is to keep Vista and then instal XP on a different partition on your hard drive, assuming you have 2 partitions, if not then you will need some softwsre like psrtition magic or use the XP cd to set up a new partition.
