Assuming it's Windows we're talking about here.... if you got the laptop second hand, check with the original owner whether their copy of Windows is legal. If you're reinstalling then ring MS up and explain the situation (press the button to get through to a real person!) and assuming your copy is genuine they should be ok with it!

How does one tgransfer an incoming call from one phone to another?


You don't need a "generic Compaq PC laptop" to do this.

Press the "transfer" button on the base-station,
and then dial the 3-digit or 4-digit "extension" for the person.
Your office PBX (Private Business eXchange) box will handle the rest.

Activaion KEY NEEDED BAD!!!


Hi,
Unfortunately we can't give you a product key or activation code to activate the operating system, on Microsoft can do this.
The product key should be on a sticker underneath the laptop, use this key to activate the laptop. If it won't allow it you will need to activate by phone, tell Microsoft that you had a hard drive failure and they will activate Windows for you, just give them the code you have posted and they will walk you through the activation by giving you another code to input.
Have a pen and paper ready to write down the code.

Hp 510 notebook -graphics - low resolution


I suggest uninstalling SP3... do you have System Restore turned on? Google how to check...

If you do, try rolling back that way. Start>Run>restore <enter> and the restore window will appear. Choose the restore to an earlier time option, and hopefully a choice for 'SP3 installation' will be there. Choose that to roll back... good luck!

I can not boot window vista


Aha!
You have to activate your OS,
On your laptop you have a key for the vista, type that key in, if that dosent work you must call and activate your vista. You do that like this way:
1:) if you have a valied licens you just call that number that appears if you continue when it ask you to use the automated phone system
2:) call that number, type in those numbers you see on you laptop given to you when u get the phone number.
3:) Listen carrefull cos you going to get an actication code, and thats a lot of number, whrite them down so you dont forget them,
4:) type in those numbers you get when you be asked to do that in the activation window on your laptop
5:) continue the boot up, vista will now check to the number you typed in are valied and you will never have to to this again, if you dont format your laptop.

If you dont have a valied licens, Buy one!

Good luck to you M8!

Several companies such as AMD and Cyrix are also developing processors which are completely compatible with Intel processors. This means that they are capable of emulating every processor instruction in the the Intel chips.

Intel designed a set of sockets. Each of these sockets supported a certain range of processors. Below we have listed the complete specifications and layouts of each of these sockets.

PROCESSOR HISTORY AND INFORMATION
Below is a listing of all known processor manufacturers made to date. In the below list is information about major processors listed by the date manufactured as well as a brief description of the technology and advances of each of the processors.
INTEL 4004 - Microprocessor introduced in 1970 with the speed of 108KHz was the worlds first microprocessor.
INTEL 8080 - Microprocessor introduced in 1974 running at the speed of 2 MHz was used in the world's first PC, the Altair.
INTEL 8086 (Code Name: P1)- Microprocessor first introduced in 1976. The 80086 had a 16-bit architecture that allowed it to work with 16-bit binary numbers and pass them through a 16-bit data bus. The 8086 was available in clock speeds of 5MHz, 8MHz, and 10MHz.
MOTOROLA 68000 - Microprocessor released in 1979 was later chosen by Apple for the Macintosh computer.
INTEL 8087 - Floating-point math compressor compliant with the 8086 / 8080 microprocessor family.
INTEL 8088 - Microprocessor released in 1979. The 8088 was the first Processor used in the original IBM PC and XT personal computers because it was less expensive than the 8086 microprocessor because of the availability of less expensive eight-bit data bus supporting chips made it the microprocessor for the IBM PC. The 8088 was available in speeds from 4.77 MHz and 8MHz.and used the 16-bit architecture allowing it to work internally with 16-digit numbers. The 8088 had the ability of addressing up to 1MB of RAM.
INTEL 80286 (Code Name: P2) - Microprocessor introduced by Intel in 1982 which commonly is referred to as the 286 processor. The 286 processor supported 16-bit architecture, supported virtual memory, and was available in clock speeds of 8MHz, 10MHz, and 12MHz. The 286 was around 20 times faster than the predecessor 8088.
INTEL 80287 - A compliant processor to the 286, a floating-point math coprocessor. Specially designed 286 chips have the capability of placing the optional 80287 processor on top of it, giving the computer a math coprocessor.
INTEL 80386DX (Code Name: P3) - Microprocessor manufactured in 1985 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386DX included the math compressor, unlike the 80386SX, and still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.
SPARC - Released in 1987 is short for Scaleable Processor ARChiture by Sun - used RISC (Reduced Instruction Set) to speed up processing.
INTEL 80486DX (Code Name: P4) - Microprocessor released April 10th 1989. The 486DX featured a built-in memory cache and 32-bit architecture. It had more than three times the computing power of the 386DX and was available in clock speeds of 25MHz, 33MHz, and 50MHz.
INTEL 80386SX - Microprocessor introduced in 1989 was the next generation of Intel processors. The 80386SX lacked a math coprocessor but still featured the 32-bit architecture and built-in multitasking. The chip was available in clock speeds of 16MHz, 20MHz, 25MHz, and 33MHz.

Good Luck, Please dont forget to Rate/Thank You.
