Networking across operating system platforms can be tricky. particularly using windows networking settings. if you don't mind spending a little money an aftermarket program that is darned near automatic and extremely easy to setup and use is called network magic.

How do I fix my hp625 problem which ask for the password of its homegropuser$


Try this it comes from the windows help file on Windows 7
You should let Windows manage
your home network connections because it's the easiest and best way to share
files and printers.


But if you've previously set up customized sharing permissions on
your network following the procedures in Windows XP or Windows Vista and you want to maintain those
permissions when using a homegroup, you can choose to manage network connections
yourself. If you choose this option, you'll need to use your user account and
password when accessing other computers.


To continue using customized permissions, create or join a
homegroup, and then follow these steps:




  1. Click to open Advanced sharing settings.


  2. Click the chevron to expand the
    Home or Work network profile.


  3. Under HomeGroup connections, click Use user accounts and passwords to connect to other computers,
    and then click Save changes.

Network Windows 7 with Xp and Vista


Windows 7 includes a new way to share data between all computers in the house with the Residential Group. But only when computers running Windows 7 may join the Group residential and enjoy the new features of sharing, playing multimedia files remotely, etc.. If you have computers running Windows XP or Windows Vista networking with Windows 7, you can still share your files and printers in Windows 7 "old" by following the instructions in this case practice. Below are the steps to do the same.
Check the workgroup:

To be a network, your computers with XP, Vista and Windows 7 should be part of the same workgroup.
Click the Start button. Right-click Computer (My Computer in XP) and click Properties. 

In the Settings area of the computer name, verify the name of the working group. The default name is WORKGROUP but you can customize it by clicking the Change Settings button. 

Make sure it is the same on other machines on the network. Under XP, the information is in the Computer Name tab.

Enable Sharing:

To enable sharing in Windows 7, you must change the settings of the Network and Sharing Center.
Click Start, then Control Panel. 

Click Network and Internet and then click Network and Sharing Center. 

In the left column, click Change sharing settings advanced. 

Verify that the options Enable network discovery, Enable file sharing and printer sharing and Enable so that anyone with network access can read and write are checked. 

Click Save Changes.

Cannot get on line in safe mode


safe mode is normally used to troubleshoot problems especially software and drivers. where you use this the computer boots up with minimum software running so you can fix problems. I am sure the modem or network drivers are not loaded and ect.

I want to install win xp on VPCEE29FX/BI


Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit CPU Type: AMD Phenom II Triple-Core P820 1.8G Why would you want to "downgrade" from the high-performance 64-bit version of Windows 7 to Windows XP?

XP probably won't support the "triple-core" processor, nor the sound-card, nor the video-card, nor the USB ports. This would leave you with a very CRIPPLED computer.

Don't try it!

Can I use networking between the two computer, the one computer has the operating system which is windows XP while the other computer has the operating system which is the windows 7?


Yes you can network XP and 7 together. The trick to this is during network setup you have to change the workgroup name on your XP computer to match Windows 7. The default workgroup name on 7 is homegroup. Change the name to homegroup in XP. Next during network setup on your 7 computer when you reach the workgroup options the setup will generate a password to access your homegroup. Write this password down and don't lose it. It's kind of hard to retrieve if you misplace it (speaking from experience :) ) You should now be able to share your router and files. Hope this was helpful.

Is there any software by which i can work on my computer when i am away from my home ?


Hello,you can work with your pc even away from it without a software.. In Windows, Remote Desktop allows you to access your computer from a remote location. To enable Remote Desktop, you must have administrative rights on the computer you want to use as the host (i.e., the computer to which you will connect from a remote location), which must be running one of the following versions of Windows: Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows Vista Business, Enterprise, or Ultimate Windows XP Professional The Remote Desktop Connection client software (for the computer from which you want to connect) is installed by default on all computers running Windows 7, Vista, or XP. Enable the Remote Desktop feature on your host computer From the Start menu, select Control Panel (or Settings, and then Control Panel). Double-click System. In Windows 7 and Vista, click Remote settings. In the "Remote Desktop" section, select one of the two options to allow connections from other computers. In Windows XP, select the Remote tab. Select Allow users to connect remotely to this computer. To choose which users will have remote access, in 7 and Vista, click Select Users... or in XP, click Select Remote Users... . Typically, all administrators of the computer will have access by default. Each user must have a password before you can allow remote access. When you are finished, click OK. Your computer will now be able to accept incoming Remote Desktop connections. Open a connection If you have configured your computer to accept remote connections, to establish a Remote Desktop connection: Depending upon your network configuration and system requirements, you may first have to establish a VPN connection to your host computer's network. From the Start menu, select Programs or All Programs. Select Accessories, and then Remote Desktop Connection. In the space next to "Computer:", type the name or IP address for your host computer. Click Connect. Note: If you would like to adjust any of your connection settings such as screen size, login information, availability of local hard drives and printers, or keyboard and sound behavior, click Options before clicking Connect. In the Log On to Windows dialog box, type your username, password, and domain (if required). Click OK. Once you are connected, you can use your remote computer as if you were sitting in front of it. When you are finished, in the Remote Desktop Connection window, select Start, then Shut Down. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, from the drop-down menu, select Log Off username, where username is your username on the remote computer. Click OK. goodluck!don't forget to rate,thanks'''''****

You need to setup your new homegroup settings on your Windows 7 PC. Once you set this up you can copy to all your windows XP computers. This will put all the computers in sync. You can find the homegroup by going to the start menu and searching for homegroup. Please let me know if you have questions.
