This is probably not going to be the answer you are expecting ... it remains a good answer and a reasonable reply to your question.

Before you do anything else ... consider these two items ...

1) If there is something physically wrong with your computer - get it repaired before you invest $200.00 in installing a new OS on a machine you can't use.

2) Check the Microsoft Hardware Compatability List to see if your laptop is Windows 7 ready http://www.microsoft.com/windows/compatibility/en-us/default.aspx

There is a similar Toshiba site you should investigate. Find it here: http://laptops.toshiba.com/windows7upgrade-learnmore

If your machine is listed on the hardware compatability list with no special notes, you will not need anything else to run the computer. If your computer is NOT on the list, Windows 7 will NOT run on your computer ... shaking or not.

I hope I have helped you with your question today ...

Thank you for your interest in FixYa.com

You'll have to go to the Toshiba website, follow links for Support and Downloads and download the Win7 compatible drivers for your laptop.

You can download windows 7 home premium from the internet and then save it to your usb flash drive or hard drive as an iso file. As long as you have a Windows 7 registration KEY number like that comes with your operating system cd, you can enter once you have the operating system installed, you will be ok. ANY Authentic Windows 7 Home Premium installation key will work.Just boot off the device the O/S is installed on.Hope this helps.

I cannot seem to install my HP 2600/2700 software onto my Windows 7 laptop. During installation, it stops and says that it cannot be installed as "Run As" and further advises that installation...


Windows 7 has some compatibility issues with some drivers, you can try to download a Windows 7 32 or 64 bits depending on your windows OS driver from HP website or you can try to run the driver installation using one of the compatibility modes under the properties tab of the driver's main file, in the properties menu there should be something like "run this software in compatibility mode for", clock on the drop down list and make sure you select "windows xp".
Hope this solution helps

I have installed Adobe Acrobat 7 on my laptop that runs on Win 7 platform. However, the installation of Acrobat flashed a warning message that Adobe Acrobat 7 was unable to create a new item: Adobe PDF...


Good Afternoon -
Direct from Adobe, they state that versions 9 and above are compatible with Windows 7, and any versions 8 or prior are not supported and updates to make compatible will not be released. There are two solutions, one that may work and one that will definitely work. The first is to try to install the program under Windows XP compatibilty, natively on Windows 7. To do this, find the executable for installation, right click and select properties. On the comptability tab, click the check box that says: Run this program in compatibility mode for: and select Windows XP (Service Pack #) from the drop down, and proceed to install, running the installer as Administrator. The other guaranteed way is if you have Windows 7 , any version other than starter, you can enable Windows XP Mode which creates a virtual PC of XP on your machine and integrates the program references into Windows 7. Details on this can be found:

Please feel free to contact me with any questions.

I have been given a medion scanner August 2002 and hoped to scan some old photos by using my new laptop DELL WIDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM.no such luck.My laptop will not recognise or connect to it.I have followed...


Hi alistair49,

Firstly, is your laptop connected to the internet when trying to install your scanner?
Windows 7 will automatically browse Microsoft's online database of drivers if it's not found in your laptop database.
If you are in fact having driver issues, have you checked the following web page to locate your scanner software?

http://www.medion.com/gb/service/download/driver.php

If, however, you have the drivers, make sure that these are compatible with Windows 7 as your scanner was manufactured before Windows 7 existed. In this case try using Windows 7 compatibility wizard to install your scanner software.

You can do this by right-clicking on the installation file & selecting "troubleshoot compatibility" from the drop-down menu. Simply follow the on-screen directions step by step to check if Windows 7 has compatibility issues with your scanner software. In most cases this procedure should solve your problem.

Best wishes,
Graeme.

How to format my laptop


Normal 0

To format the hard disk and re-install Windows use the Windows installation CD, and the Windows Product Code on the label at the bottom of your laptop.

Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow the instructions.

One of the installation early steps, the option to delete the existing partition, then create a new partition and then a full format on this partition (don't do a quick format) and complete the Windows installation.

Next install all of the Toshiba's computer/laptop device drives.

Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 for XP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista)

Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone.

Next install your programs - Microsoft Office etc.
Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for the latest updates).

It is normal, after a C:\ drive format, to lose all your information from that partition, including last known configuration and system restore points. If you weren't able to enter Windows 7 Ultimate do a clean reinstall. Also, immediately after Windows installation, install the latest drivers.
If something else happened, please let me know so I can tell you what to do.
