Let's try the easy stuff first:

  1. Reseat the memory (while the computer is OFF, remove the memory from the bottom of the laptop) Try to boot with no memory, then with one module, then both.
  2. Try to boot with the hard drive removed.
Any messages or differences in boot up?

Start windows defender definitions


Updates for Windows Defender are usually included in regularly scheduled Windows updates. However, you can manually download and install the updates yourself.
Updates may be available in several places online, but only download those from Microsoft's official website.
Files from other sources may in fact be viruses or other malware disguised as legitimate update files.

Log into your Windows Vista computer as an administrator.
You will need administrator rights to install the update files.
Check whether you are running the 32- or 64-bit version of Windows Vista by clicking on the "Start" menu, then typing "system" in the search box and clicking "system" in the programs list.
For the "System type" entry you will see either "32-bit operating system" or "64-bit operating system".

Download the update definition files from Microsoft's website.
There are different versions of the files for the 32- and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, so be sure to download the correct version for your computer by simply clicking the appropriate link (see Links below), which will start the download automatically.
32 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70631
64 bit
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=70632
Click "Run" when the download has completed to immediately begin installation.
Follow the prompts on your screen to complete the installation, and restart your computer if necessary.
A restart is not usually required immediately, but is usually required in order for installation to be fully completed, so restart as soon as possible.

What is jucheck.exe? It keeps trying to acess my computer. I select NO and it pops back up.


The jucheck.exe is the Java update verification process. This process will check on the internet for available updates for the Java software installed on your computer. If updates are available, it will notify you and/or manage the download and install of the updates. You should leave this process running in order to keep your Java up to date.

When there is a notification for new update, a tooltip ballon appears.

java_update01.jpg

To install new update click the notification window.

Note: If you are on Windows Vista or Windows 7 operating systems, then you will see User Access Control (UAC) consent prompt.
The consent prompt is seen when a user attempts to perform a task that requires a user administrative access.

Click Continue button to install new Java update.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.

  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003

SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.

You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

Pro tools m-powered problem


You may need to check to see which "service pack" you are currently on.

See below requirements:

System Software — Windows XP & Vista
  • Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition
    • 32-bit OS Installation Only
  • Windows XP Professional or Home Edition
    • With Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3

  • Not Supported:
    • Windows Vista 64-bit (any version)
    • Windows XP Professional x64 Edition
    • Windows XP Media Center Edition
    • Windows 98, Me, 2000, NT, 95, 3.1, DOS

  • Not Tested:
    • Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition
    • Although Windows Vista Home and Home Premium Edition have not been tested or qualified by Digidesign, there are currently no known issues with Vista Home and Home Premium 32-bit operating systems and Pro Tools M-Powered 7.4 compared to the supported Windows Vista Business or Ultimate Edition operating systems.

Windows Vista SP1
There are currently no known issues with Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista based on our initial limited testing and customer feedback. Although full qualification with all Digidesign products has not been completed, we do not recommend against updating to SP1, given the number of important overall system fixes in SP1. We do recommend that you backup your system and create a restore point before updating to SP1, should you encounter any problems after installing the update.

How i install js script software


Java-script is a scripting language interpreted by you browser and is not installed on you PC like compiled software. Java, which is a programming language is installed by downloading JRE for www.sun.com.

If you browser is not running Java-script while viewing web-page, (eg: youtube) that is in you browser options, you probably need to enable JS in you settings. google "enable javascript YourBrowserGoesHere".
