just been fixing a window vista laptop with problems
Microsoft stopped supporting windows vista years ago
no updates or upgrades
you are at base service pack one
and computer should have been updated to service pack 3 years ago
from service pack 3 a windows 10 upgrade is possible
try an ethernet or usb wifi connection .
.see if the computer will run the way you want it
any windows vista computer is a x32 bit system
with upgrades can run x64
x86 is the current
if you are running anything higher than 32 or x64 software the computer will be slow sometimes freeze or shut down
vista came out same time as and dial up internet
and early broad band
vista can run office 95 but windows 2000 is stable
First off, there is a big difference between windows 2000 and xp.
She needs her windows 2000 install disks and to re-install windows. Then she needs to install her service packs onto it. Either that or upgrade to windows xp. Id suggest she upgrade if she has decent hardware(memory, cpu and hard drive space)
There is no shortcut or work around unless you want to start using pirated stuff, which is probably not a good idea since most of that stuff is just an avenue for viruses and backdoor programs.
click start-->run -->type services.msc--> u would see the list of services ---> find "print spooler " ...make sure it is "started " ..or the like possiblity is that u may have installed the printer drivers that came along for xp. .....is so , disable "lexbec " under services list . ........and reinstall/ dowload the vista drivers from your printer vendor site .
If you try to open the file with Microsoft Word, it should automatically convert it. To open it with Microsoft Word, hit "File" > "Open". Change the "Files of Type:" drop down box to "All (*.*)". Navigate to the folder in which the file is located, and it should appear in the dialog box. Double click the file, and Microsoft Word should convert the file for you. You can then save the file in a different format if you prefer.

You can upgrade from your current edition of Microsoft Windows XP or
Windows 2000 to a corresponding or better edition of Windows Vista by
purchasing and installing an upgrade copy of Windows Vista. While selecting the edition of Windows Vista that's right for you, it's
important to clearly understand what hardware your PC will need to
ensure the features you want will run reliably.
