I had something close to this problem with XP. I was
trying to install and it would get to the screen where it was detecting
hardware and just stay there for ever. I took out the hard drive and put it
into another machine repartitioned and reformated. I put the hard drive back
in and all was good.

Please use this advice at your own risk.

A solution to that is to install Windows Vista Ultimate on top of your old vista installation. Just insert your Vista DVD and restart your computer. And simply follow the instructions for the installation.

You may need to re-install the operating system all over again as you had tried to restore your computer using Restore Disc but failed. In these cases, you will have to try to wipe all your data and install OS once again.

I have the cd to download for my cam, but when I download the cd, it will not allow my cam to work. It keep telling me something about the administrator, but I am the administrator. What shall I do ????


You probably have vista - try uploading as administrator - right click select 'Run as administrator'

If that fails uninstall the software - plug in the webcam and reboot the computer.
Allow the 'New hardware Detected' feature to install the software automatically before you start any programs.

Microsoft Vista Rebooting on its own


This could be a driver issue, a hardware issue, or a software issue.

Steps to find out:

1. start computer in safe mode. if problem persists it is probably a hardware failure of some sort. likely a failing hard drive (that or a really nasty virus). if problem does not occur in safe mode goto step 2.

2. install latest drivers and updates on computer. problem persists goto step 3

3. try to close all un-necessary programs (including firewalls/anti-viruses) allowing one or two or three back at a time until you find the buggy program if there is one. no buggy program goto step 4

note: step four is usually what computer technicians do so if you aren't good with computers take it to a tech who knows what he's doing!

4. I would suggest wiping your HDD as finding the problem is too tedious at this point. but if you like tedious run some system diagnostics and scan your HDD from another PC. the results of these tests should be self-explanatory as to the problem. (busted hdd/virus/failing hardware) :)
