    Run the windows set up CD that came with your system and use the Repair console to repair the current (Previous) version of windows. If that doe not work, are you at least able to get to Safe Mode with a Command Prompt?

Open and back all important if you could still open you hard disk drive in another media like flash disks or cards then reformat and reinstall your new OS. do not ctrl A and copy all files when your return them back rememember to scan them using powerful antivirus software before you return data to your newly reformatted HDD or else you may be copying the virus back. Have it cleaned by PC with updated Antivirus programs.

Want to upgrade to windows 7 plain home


Windows 7 sales (except Pro) stopped almost two years ago. You may be able to find discs on the second hand market but not from Microsoft or a registered dealer. You can still get Win 7 Pro.

Support lifecycle

Microsoft ended the sale of new retail copies of Windows 7 in October 2014, and the sale of new OEM licenses for Windows 7 Home Basic, Home Premium, and Ultimate ended on October 31, 2014. Professional currently remains available to OEMs, primarily as part of downgrade rights for Windows 8 licenses. OEM sales of PCs with Windows 7 Professional preinstalled will end on October 31, 2016.[96] The sale of non-Professional OEM licences was stopped on October 31, 2014.[97]Mainstream support for 7 ended on January 13, 2015. Extended support will end on January 14, 2020

Ive upgraded my xp home edition sony vaio pcv-v1/G with windows vista home premium ....how do i get it back to xp it wont let me load xp back onto it since i upgraded thanks


Did you reformat the entire hard drive when you installed Vista? If you formatted the recovery partition you won't be able to go back without a Xp installation disc.

I dont have the code of my windows xp updater disc...how do i get it


You would have to contact MicroSoft and pay for a new license( usually at full price) or go to your local WalMart and purchase a new copy of Win XP Upgrade. The new disc from WalMart should come with the newest service pack (3) which will save a ton of time and your gauranteed Genuine Windows.

Cannot connect my MT6225 china phone to my laptop thro the USB. what can i do?


hello, u may have to download the proper drivers plus data manager software from the manufacturers homepage,
they have to fit vista!

if there are just ones for winxp or lower win/versions available, either try connecting phone to a winxp/interent-pc and go through driver-install and so on
or think about downgrading your system to win-xp professional!

win vista is fine but not as reliable as winxp/pro!

good luck

OS Matter


Nope.

Without the disk you cannot upgrade to Windows XP Pro, because both Windows XP Home and Windows XP Professional are two different edition / version.

So if you want to upgrade your current operating system from Windows XP Home then you have to spend money to buy Windows XP Pro

But if you want to upgrade the Service Pack then you can very well do it.

Click the link below to download Windows XP SP3 for your edition and install it. Before installing it make sure you have turned off your security programs or better install it from the SafeMode

No unfortunately XP home and XP media edition are different but not completely. The only difference is the entertainment factor like TV control and live recording and pausing , viewing photos etc and media center is considered to be a bit more secure than XP home but i find this just a wrong perception of people as i also have XP home and also had media center, makes no difference at all regarding security but yes if u want much more features or facilities as far as entertainment is considered media center edition is far more good than XP home.......
IF U INSTALL XP HOME THAT DOES NOT MEAN U INSTALLED XP MEDIA CENTER
Now there are 2 ways to solve ur problem
1. Either get a NEW disc from microsoft or any computer shop for media center and then install it.
OR
2. Install XP home on your system and then try to put the CD for media center , it will update XP to media center . In this way u will get the media center back and u will also not lose any previous stored data.
NOTE: In both the above cases u will have to get the CD for Media center......
Wat matters is losing the data that is already stored on your system.
BUT AGAIN I WOULD LIKE TO REMIND HERE IS THAT INSTALLING XP HOME WILL NOT GET BACK U TO MEDIA CENTER AS THEY ARE DIFFERENT BUT IT MAKES NOT DIFFERENCE WHETHER IT IS XP HOME OR MEDIA CENTER AS ONLY DIFFERENCE IS ENTERTAINMENT>>> IN THE WORLD THERE ARE MORE PEOPLE USING XP HOME THAN MEDIA CENTER>>>

I would recommend to cont. with XP home
