I don't have any sound on my computer's internal speakers or my headphones after installing windows 7 pro on my averatec a2 all in one pc, can anyone help me?


You probably just need to install some fresh RealTek drivers. Normally, Windows Update should address this problem but if it doesn't then you can find the drivers you need here:

And choose the High Definition Audio drivers for 64 bits Windows 7.

Upgrading from vista to win7


I would start by deleting partitions and doing a full format. Then loading an OS. Check MS minimum system requirements for OS and double them.

If it crashes again. Start checking RAM.

Hardware conflict blue screen


I bought a used computer that stopped working all the time. I installed new OS, same problem. It was the CPU that was overheating. The thermal paste under the CPU was dried and crusty. New paste cured it.

On yours, check for dust build up and feel if any components are too hot. Also reinstall all drivers for your motherboard, get the newest ones from your mo-bo mfr. web site.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit


You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista. For more information, go to Back up your files and

Can i install a 64 bit of 32 bit Computer?


Yes you can, unfortunately you can not upgrade from 32bit to 64bit, you would need to do a fresh installation. Also your processor and motherboard need to support 64-bit architecture. If you start the installation for the 64bit if the architecture isnt supported it would notify you that the installation can not be completed with an error message.
Enjoy your copy of Windows 7 64-bit if it works.

It doesn't play =((


Do you get any error messages? Try Downloading the updated drivers and install them. Make sure you download the drivers for 64-bit vista OS. Now if it still doesnt work let me know.

BLUE SCREEN ON HP WORKSTATION WHEN I TRY TO UPGRADE TO 64 BIT XP PRO


Are you trying to do a fresh install? or upgrade from another operating system? Generally have to do a fresh install when going from 32 bit version of xp to 64 bit. IF you have more than 4 GB of ram installed, you may have to remove some, then install 64 bit XP Pro, then install your ram after. (this is a known problem with some machines and 64 bit xp) IF this is none of the above?
Please add a comment with more information as per your BSOD. This way I can identify with you what it is the system does not like
