Question about PC Desktops
A FRIEND of mine suggested removing Vista on my PC and adding XP because I was having numerous problems with none of my old software / programs being compatible and also kept getting blue screens and black outs. I trusted him becasue he is crazy about computers and builds his own etc...
WHAT A FOOL I WAS!!!!!!!
Now I can't install anything and my broadband and media player won't work because (I've been told) the PC's components are compatible only with Vista so won't, therefore, recognise XP.
My FRIEND now doesn't know what to do and apparently because of the way he got rid of Vista and installed XP (kill disc?!) I can't get Vista back on it.
PLEASE HELP ME... Is there anything I can do?
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.
