Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I had lOADS of problems with my new PC (Vista) so my friend who was apparently a "computer expert" told me the best thing to do was KILL Vista and put on XP. As he builds his own PCs etc... I trusted him - FOOL THAT I AM!!!!! My PC will now not work as I've been told the components (ethernet connection and sound card - so far...) are Vista compatible and not XP so media player or broadband won't work. I've spoken to my "friend" who now doesn't know what to do which is really helpful. The company I bought the PC from will also not help as I've taken off Vista, therefore, vovoiding the warranty! PLEASE HELP ME.

My computer runs really slow, freezes, internet explorer hardly ever works. help!!


There is no such thing as a windows vista machine. You can install different operating systems on different machines. Your problem is most likely that you're missing drivers for the peripherals.
Download a program called "driver easy" and run it. It will tell you what drivers are missing, once you get all the drivers installed you should find things work better, like once you get your network running then internet explorer will stop having problems.

Stop: 0x0000007B error code refers to memory issues
You need make some changes in your computer before installing XP
1. On start up, press F2 to enter BIOS 2. Expand the "Drives" section 3. Go to "SATA Operation" 4. Change this from "RAID Auto/AHCI" to "RAID Auto/ATA"
You will be able to install XP now

If you are running Vista, it probable is your operating system.
Vista has alot of problems with loosing things like dirves,printers,the mouse and even itself at times.
The best thing to try is a full format and recovery and then after about 4 hours of this then spend another 6 hours getting all the updates for it. Then you can reinstall your stuff.
Or you can upgrade it to Win 7 next month and have a whole new set of problems.

Vista removed, XP put on. Now my PC won't work!


Hello there. This is true yes, some computer components require Windows Vista and its drivers to support the device. As XP is not working for you, you would need to re-install Vista from the installation DVD, many companies do not provide a DVD but instead provide their own software, this sometimes comes on disc but also can be a bootup option when you turn on your computer.

Really you need to get in contact with whoever you purchased the computer from, as your Vista was paid for and licensed to _you_
They will either be able to instruct you how to get Vista back on, or provide you with the necessary disc.

Hope this helps.

Computer will not boot


Chances are if you load the windows CD into the CD player it wil boot to the CD. You can opt to repair the current version of windows without a format. You will not loose your data.

Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman
