Re: laptop with windows vista starter /nokia 6680 with...
I was told there were free downloads from Nokia to solve this problem ----however
the donload would require using the Internet (on another laptop )----then burning
it on to a disk to transfer to my new latptop !
At the age of 94 with a little more money than skill or patience ---found another
remedy---buying a Nokia C-90 which provides me with the Nokia suite/Vista to load
on my new Laptop---
Who said Computers would be any different----making it easier on people of
lesser means ?

Hi smb343646205, Welcome to FixYa! How are you doing? You did not specify the Operating System you are using, whether Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7. Anyways, try to reset the Internet Explorer Settings to resolve the problem. To use the Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature from Control Panel, follow these steps:
Exit all programs, including Internet Explorer (if it is running).
If you use Windows XP, click Start, and then click Run. Type the following command in the Open box, and then press ENTER:
inetcpl.cplIf you use Windows Vista, click Start. Type the following command in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER:
The Internet Options dialog box appears.
Click the Advanced tab.
Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset. Then click Reset again.
When Internet Explorer finishes resetting the settings, click Close in the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box.
Start Internet Explorer again.
The Reset Internet Explorer Settings feature restores the following items to their default settings:
try to install it using compatibility mode simply right click on the file scroll down to properties click on the compatibility tab tick the box that says run this program in compatibility mode for then choose windows xp or vista.. i hope this solves your problem
Now I am assuming that the laptop came with Windows XP installed and you upgraded to Vista. The reason why it is telling you that is because microsoft has installed the windows verification tool and has found your version of Vista to be possibly pirated.The upgrade disc that you used for Vista...Did you buy it or did someone give it to you? Does the disc look authentic or is it a copy? The serial number that you used to install the upgrade might be stolen. I would contact the person you obtained the disc from or contact microsoft. They will provide you with a good serial number but you may need to pay for it. Now that it has been flagged as not being genuine you will not be able to get any new updates or service packs from microsoft. And after a certain amount of time it may shut the OS down.
Maybe your problem is the vista is not really compatible in your laptop. There is a brand or type of processor that vista not really work well that's why some of my customer want to re install the windows xp to his new laptop to solve or to avoid some error occurs.
