How do you install windows 7 on HP pavilian 754n? plz tell me quick because we just bought windows 7 and it doesnt work on the computer. thx you!


First you will need the Window 7 operating system cd.
place the cd in the cd room and let the auto run take place. this is not a quick process
it will take several minutes. If the operating system is not loading you may have a different problem

A disk in a series of exercise discs plays only in Spanish. My young daughter had the remote and, in a few quick buttons, made the language and writing change to Spanish only and I cannot, no matter what I...


The problem is not the disc itself but your DVD player. If other discs still play in English, and it is just this one disc that plays in Spanish, then your player is using some sort of stored setting to recognize your preference for spanish on that particular disc.
Forgive me if you've already done this, but try turning unplugging the DVD player for a period of ten seconds or so, and then plug it back in. If there is a reset button, press it. See if the disc still plays in Spanish after that.
If so, you may need to navigate the DVD menu of the offending CD to turn off the language setting your daughter selected. If you don't speak Spanish, try navigating to the language settings on one of the other discs with the English menus. Memorize how you got there, and take the same path through the Spanish language menu. Return the language setting to English, and exit.
Hope this helps.

Hi goodevening

there so so many reason why does not detect a blueray disc after you switching windows 7
1st may be your cd/dvd driver have a problem,
(solution) try to use other cd/dvd driver
2nd may be the window 7 installer you've use have a missing file.
(solution) try to re install the o.s but dont use the same cd you've use try other installer.
3rd your blueray disc is the problem
(solution) use your blue ray disc in other p.c window xp if running in xp try to use other pc using a window 7, if running in other unit may be your pc need to upgrade.

Windows 7 stutters


Hello Jonathan,

Was Windows 7 the operating system that came with

your System? If not, What I would advise you to do

is this:

Check HP website to find out if your Laptop supports

Windows 7.

If it doesnt, then Jonathan, I would advise you to

PLEASE change it back to the operating system

that came with your system, or better still, the

operating system that it supports.

The reason is because that is exactly what I faced

two weeks ago....

I changed the operating system for my PC to

Windows 7 ( Even though it doesnt support it)...it

worked fine for a while, then later it started to develop

faults after a while...like stuttering, mouse pointer

moving round the screen, graphics displaying

improperly...etc.

I first thought it wasn't a big deal, so I fixed it by

repairing the drivers, and it workied fine once again...

In short Jonathan....Now as I'm typing, the system is

with HP Service Centre for they have to change the

Mainboard Outrightly!

So PLEASE, if your system was not specified

Windows 7, use the Operating Systems that it

supports.

But if it is the one that came with it, then let me know

so as to tell you some quick fixes.

Hope this helps you out.

Goodluck and thanks for using fixya!

Need to reformat my dell insprion 1501


You first need to ensure that the you have the drivers on the cd's or check if they are avaible on dell's website..

Then you will need a Windows XP CD.. Just put the windows xp formatting cd in cd-drive and restart computer...
When it should say "press any key to continue." (or similar) just press a random key on the keyboard..
(If it doesnt say "press any key to continue", right when you turn on computer press F2 and make CD/DVD Drive the first on the Boot list.. Then save settings..)
Wait for the blue screen to finish loading..
Delete the partition and install windows on the unformat space..
Format it as NFTS (select quick if u are in a hurry, but i doesnt recommend doing so..
Then just follow the instructions on the screen until finishing installing windows..
If your sound, wireless and stuff like that doesnt work after formatting insert the drivers cd i mentioned in the beginning and install its contents..

Hp quickplay button issues - dv9000


Ok the problem lies within the software. You may need to update the driver. Yes drivers tell this device added what to do. So log onto HPs website, download the updated version. This should help, if this does not help it then becomes hardware, which is better off leaving alone do to the expense.
