I personally prefer the third link.

Burning problems when running windows xp


avoid multitasking while burning disc, since this process requires more computer resources like Hard disk space and RAM. you can also update the firmware driver of your Disc burner from the manufacturer's website to correct the problem.
FOR HELP WITH DUAL BOOT INSTALLATION
Choose a partitionTo add Windows Vista to a system where an existing version of Windows is already installed, first make sure that you have an available partition (or unformatted disk space) separate from the partition that contains the system files for your current Windows version.
The target partition can be a separate partition on the same physical disk, or it can be on a different hard disk. If your system contains a single disk with a single partition used as drive C, you cannot create a multiboot system unless you add a new disk or use software tools to shrink the existing partition and create a new partition from the free space. (The Windows Vista Disk Management console, Diskmgmt.msc, includes this capability; to shrink partitions on a system running an older Windows version, you’ll need third-party software.) The new partition does not need to be empty; however, it should not contain system files for another Windows installation. Run Setup, choose the Custom (Advanced) option, and select the disk and partition you want to use for the new installation.
The Setup program automatically handles details of adding the newly installed operating system to the Boot Configuration Data store.
And how do you edit and configure the Boot Configuration Data store? Surprisingly, the only official tool is a command-line utility called Bcdedit. Bcdedit isn’t an interactive program; instead, you perform tasks by appending switches and parameters to the Bcdedit command line. To display the complete syntax for this tool, open an elevated Command Prompt window (using the Run as Administrator option) and enter the command Bcdedit –?
arrow_px_up.gifTop of page Rename entries in the boot menuFor everyday use, most Bcdedit options are esoteric and unnecessary. In fact, the only option that we remember using more than once during the entire development cycle for Windows Vista was the command to change the text for each entry in the boot menu. By default, Setup adds the generic entry “Microsoft Windows Vista” for each installation. If you set up a dual-boot system using Windows Vista Home Premium and Windows Vista Business, you’ll be unable to tell which is which, because the menu text will be the same for each. To make the menu more informative, follow these steps:



1. Start your computer and choose either entry from the boot menu. After startup completes, make a note of which installation is running.
2. Click the Start button getopencontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=xml, type cmd in the Search box, and press CTRL+SHIFT+ENTER. Click Continue in the User Account Control box to open an elevated Command Prompt window.
3. Type the following command: bcdedit /set description "Menu description goes here" (substitute your own description for the placeholder text, and be sure to include the quotation marks). Press ENTER.
4. Restart your computer and note that the menu description you just entered now appears on the menu. Select the other menu option.
5. Repeat steps 2 and 3, again adding a menu description to replace the generic text and distinguish this installation from the other one.
Control which drive letter your boot volume usesWhich drive letter will your clean installation of Windows Vista use? That depends on how you install it. If you currently have a working copy of any Windows version on drive C and you install a clean copy of Windows, drive letters are assigned using the following logic:
• If you begin the installation process by booting from the Windows Vista media and choose a partition other than the one containing your current copy of Windows, the new installation uses the drive letter C when you start up. The volume that contains the other Windows installation uses the next available drive letter. When you choose the previous Windows installation from the startup menu, it uses the drive letter C, and your new Windows Vista installation is assigned the next available drive letter. In this configuration, you can be certain that your current operating system is always on the C drive, but drive letters assigned to volumes you use for data may shift in unexpected ways.
• If you begin the installation process by running Setup from within your current version of Windows and use the Custom (Advanced) option to perform a clean install on a partition other than the one currently in use, the new installation uses the next available drive letter. The volumes containing each installation have the same drive letters regardless of which Windows version you select at startup.

Brother MFC 7820N Cant not get it to install. Using Vista. Went to Brothers solution center -- cant find the fix.


Here is the link for you driver answer. I do not see any Vista drivers. This is what happens when you upgrade. Always make sure that an OS supports your printers and other stuff.

When setting up new computer, Windows Vista keeps asking for Product key number to secure computer. Will not accept this number that is on the new computer


maybe your vista license is for one computer only that's why will not accept the serial or product key you need to purchase another windows vista software with license

Printer no black


hi hedleygb,

I recommend that you make absolutely sure that you are following the correct procedure when you are installing the print cartridge. For this I need you to follow the instructions at
http://solutions.brother.com/mfc210c_all/en_us/options/us/
(click on the View PDF File link, especially the part about removing the new print cartridge's Cartridge Cover before installing it in your printer)

If you've made sure that you're following the correct procedure during the installation of the cartridge and the printer still won't print black, I recommend reinstalling the printer on your PC with the latest drivers. To do this you can follow the following steps;
(if these steps aren't sufficient for you to do the reinstallation, feel free to give me more info about the operating system you are running on your PC in the comments of this problem, so that I can give you more detailed steps on how to perform the reinstallation).
  1. Uninstall your printer's driver from your PC's operating system (e.g. Windows)
  2. Download the latest drivers for the MFC 210C at
    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/Public/Templates/DownloadTop.aspx?NRMODE=Published&NRNODEGUID=%7b66D791E0-6EB2-410E-9602-7BFFA80A61D3%7d&NRORIGINALURL=%2fbsc%2fpublic%2feu%2feu_ot%2fen%2fdlf%2fdownload_top%2ehtml%3freg%3deu%26c%3deu_ot%26lang%3den%26prod%3dmfc210c_all&NRCACHEHINT=NoModifyGuest&prod=mfc210c_all&reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en
    At Step1: Select Type select Driver
    At Step2: Select OS select the operating system you run on your PC (e.g. Windows XP or Windows Vista)
    At Step3: Select Language select your preferred language
  3. Reinstall the printer using the guidelines as documented in the printer's manual, which can be downloaded at
    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public/eu/eu_ot/en/doc/manual_index.html?reg=eu&c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=mfc210c_all&type2=5&flang=English&dlid=
Feel free to contact me again via the comments of this problem if you need more information.

If you have completed the above mentioned troubleshooting processes and the printer's problem hasn't been solved this could indicate a hardware malfunction of one of the printer's components. In which case the printer should be serviced by a IT technician at a PC repair workshop.

I hope you find this info helpful in solving the problem with your printer and thanks for using the FixYa service
Kind regard
