Fredmallow,

You probably are onto the problem yourself. Try downloading drivers for Vista. If that does not work then the device is just not going to get along with Vista.

NO OPERATING SYSTEM FOUND (VISTA) DIAG. ROOT CAUSE NO HARD DRIVE FOUND AFTER SON DID A SYSTEM RESTORE (OR SO HE SAYS)


1. To do this you have to boot your computer to the Windows Vista disk
.At the bottom says "Windows is loading files...."The Windows Setup environment will continue to load

2. At this screen you should configure the Language to install, Time and currency format, and Keyboard or input method options so that they are set correctly. When done, press the Next button. You will now be at the main Windows Vista setup screen where you would normally install Vista on to a computer.

3. Click Repair your Computer and keep on hitting next until you get the menuroadfox_18.jpg
4. Choose Starup Repair First Keep on hittng next until computer restarts.

5. If it fails repeat steps 1 to 4 and choose System Restore

6. System restore will prompt you choose a date. I suggest to choose a date within a week when the computer's setting is up and running


Hope This helps

I am trying to install windows xp home edition on my compaq presario 1260, and everything i have read states that this is possible. my issue is that when it gets to the "set-up is starting windows" it...


The following items can cause Setup to stop responding while the "Setup is starting Windows" message is displayed:
  • An incorrect mass-storage device (such as a SCSI or IDE controller) driver is being loaded, or the driver was not written for Windows and is not compatible. Contact the device's manufacturer or download the latest driver for the mass-storage device. For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 216406 Specifying Third-Party Disk Controller Driver During Setup
  • There is a device connected to your mass-storage device that is preventing Windows from being installed. Remove any devices (such as scanners, tape drives, removable drives, and so on) from the mass-storage device controller. If the computer is IDE-based, verify that you have the master and slave designations set properly. If the mass-storage controller is SCSI-based, verify that the termination and bus speed is set properly.
  • The computer does not have the latest BIOS revision. Contact the computer's manufacturer or check the manufacturer's Web site. Many manufacturers have updated their BIOS revisions to properly support Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI).
  • An ACPI Hardware Abstraction Layer (HAL) is being used during Setup. Force the use of a non-ACPI HAL during Setup. For additional information about this procedure, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 216251 How to Specify a Specific or Third-Party HAL During Setup
For additional information, click the article numbers below to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 224826 Troubleshooting Text-Mode Setup Problems on ACPI Computers 220845 Adding Third-Party or Updated Driver During Windows 2000 Setup
You may have to load you SATA drivers first? OR choose another HAL, press F6 during setup.Setup ACPI also.

I purchased my Microtek ScanMaker 3800 many years ago. I still have the installation CD. Recently I purchased an HP laptop running Vista. My question: is it all right to plug in the scanner directly...


First connect your scanner to computer with usb cable.
Then insert disk in rom then install driver and software from disk.
It is not matter that first you connect scanner or install driver but if you connect scanner first your computer recognized it then you can install driver from disk.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I purchased a printmaster platinum 12 in 2002 and loved it but now i am trying to download the software into a diffrent computer since out other computer crashed. i have my registration # but i can only...


I am guessing that your new computer has windows vista on it. That may be the reason Printmaster 12 will not install. Certain programs or their installations are not compatible with Vista.

I'm not sure what errors you are getting, and I am assuming you are running Windows Vista, so again I'm just guessing.

You could try to launch the setup program manually and using compatibility mode by following these steps:

1. Insert your installation disk.
2. Click the start button

3. Click on Computer
4. Right click on the drive containing your installation CD
5. Select Explore from the menu.
6. Find the Setup or Install file in the list.
7 Right click on it.
8. Select Properties.
9 Select the Compatibility tab at the top.
10. check "Run this program in compatibility mode for"
11. In the drop down menu select windows xp
12. check "disable visual themes"
13. Check "run this program as administrator" (if it is available)
14 click OK

15 now double click on the setup/install program.

I hope this solves your problem.
Thanks!

Need to download windows vista to install my hp psc 1410 all-in-one printer-scanner-copier to my new computer.


why??? If your computer is New it should have VISTA on it, or Windows XP, which is compatible with all printer scanner types. All you need to do is use the installation disk you got from the all- in -one-printer-scanner-copier and insert it into the disk drive and let it load up and follow instructions. if you do NOT have the disk--go to the website of the maker of the all-in-one and download the thing from there.

Additionally, Vista has what is called User account conrol (UAC) interface. This will start the installation program without administrator privileges.

My new PC with the new Vista Vision will not except the software that came with scanner for my Epson Perfection 1260 Model J121A.What can you do ? Sincerely Gunter !


In Vista there is a feature called UCI (user access interface ) that won't allow you to run or install system software.
To install software you need to put CD in, if it goes autorun stop it.
  • Then you click on computer ,
  • click right button of mouse on cd and chose OPEN or EXPLORE, dont double click as it will go autorun again and you'll need to stop it.
  • Locate the installer file (setup or something.exe) in the CD contents.
  • Click right button of mouse on installer file (within cd files) and chose ' run as administrator ' from drop down menu
  • Grant access to installer file whenbever required by Vista.

It should be installed normally. If you still get problems after this it is probably a faulty CD.
