Have you tried updating all your drivers? Also don't forget to back them up, There is a free program out their called double driver. Its free and will back up all your drivers so that if you mess anything up and have to reinstall the operating system you have all your drivers.

really the best tuneup does not require you to buy a program, I would suggest saving on your files and pictures via a back up,

I would then find a windows xp disc, a real one not something that came bundled with a system, the one you got with your dell, Hp r what have you came pre-bundled with **** software that takes up system resources,

when your done the only thing on your computer will be windows and nothing else a clean slate as it were.

Check your past emails from the seller for the serial number or contact who sold it to you. But that program does not have a very good review record, so you might try an alternative. Here's a kit that combines the best utilities for each function (free). The Best Tune Up Utilities for 2016 or try this review of paid programs.

Cannot install MGI PhotoSuite4 on a computer running Windows 7 OS


The PhotoSuite 4 program is very old and won't work under Windows 7. http://sonic.net/mnitepub/pccafe/reviews/photosuite4/photosuite4.html says that the version 4 Platinum edition ran under Win95-Win2000 versions of the Windows OS. Thus even the compatibility mode probably won't help under Windows 7 32-bit. You can try it though by right clicking on the installer and then selecting Properties. In the Compatibility Mode tab, select Always Run this program in the compatibility mode and an older version of Windows. Then right click again and choose Run as Administrator. (You may have to do this again on the program itself.) Since Win7 64-bit requires signed drivers or programs, it is not as likely to work. (Check your version of Windows 7 by clicking Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the title of your OS ends with x64, you have the 64-bit OS. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit OS.)

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to one of those versions), you can run a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Microsoft's Virtual PC and then XP mode (in order). This works best if your CPU supports virtualization and you enable the feature in your computer's BIOS. (There are work-arounds for computers without virtualization. See the MS support pages.) Install your PhotoSuite inside the virtual XP program in that case.This old software may run in that case. (However, I've had some Win2K software that ran under XP with the compatibility mode but didn't run under the virtual XP. Note: virtual computers do have some additional limitations. They do not talk to the host hard drive and other hardware directly. (You can install a printer on the host machine or the virtual machine but not both.) You'll need to save files on external media (flash drive, optical disc or other hard drive) to transfer them between the machines).

Another option is to run an older version of Windows on another computer, as a dual boot computer or with Virtual PC (or another virtual computer package - VMWare or Parallels). In that case, you need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Again install the program while running the older OS.

The final option is to upgrade to a Windows 7 compatible Photo editor and organizer. (Even the Microsoft Windows Live Photo Gallery has some of the features of Photosuite SE.)

I hope this helps.

Start the "Windows Compatibility Wizard", and tell it that you want to install a "Windows XP" program. Windows 7 will then read the CD, and install the program, and run it in "XP" mode.

I purchased Hebrew Tutor and cannot install it on my Windows7, 64-bit computer. Please help.


Unfortunately, the Hebrew Tutor from QuickVerse was written for older Windows OS versions. It supports: Windows 95, 98, ME, 2000, XP Home, XP Pro, or NT 4.0. The changes in the Windows OS over time has made the installer totally different and the program isn't signed for a 64-bit OS. http://www.quickverse.com/shopfiles/product_details.asp?ID=41011 has the support details.

There are two possible ways to work around the issue. The first is to try to install the program (and then run it) in the compatibility mode. This may work but often doesn't. Right click on the installer (from the CD's directory) and choose Properties. Then go to the Compatibility tab and chose Run this program as compatible with XP. Save and close the properties box. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator. If it installs, repeat the compatibility process on the program itself.

The solution most likely to work is to use a computer with the compatible OS versions. This could be a physical second computer, a dual-boot machine or a virtual computer. If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can run the virtual computer with XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode (in order) from Microsoft. For other setups, you will need a licensed version of the older Windows OS. Virtualization packages include Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare. Then install the Hebrew tutor as you normally would to an XP computer. (Note: virtual computers do not share hardware with the real computer. You can only install a printer to one machine at a time. You can share files by saving them to external media (optical RW disc or flash drive for example).)

I hope this helps.

My Art Explosion Greeting Card Deluxe Factory 2 software will not work on my Toshiba Satellite A200 laptop. I am using Windows Vista. Please can you advise?


Unfortunately the Windows OS has changed significantly since that software was released. Nova Developement now has the Greeting Card Factory Deluxe version 8 for XP/Vista/7.

If you have the 64-bit Vista, you may not be able to get the old software to work and need the upgrade or a virtual computer with an older Windows OS (see below). To check your OS version, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System .

You can try running the program in the compatibility mode - this will work best with software for XP not Win95-NT. Right click on the installer and select Properties. Go to the Compatibility tab and choose Run this program as compatible with (an older version of Windows). Click on the check box and use the drop-down menu to select the older OS. Save the change by clicking apply then close the window. Right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

If the program installs, do the same compatibility steps for the program's exe file itself. (You don't need to run as administrator though.)

Alternatively, you can run a dual boot or virtual computer with an older Windows OS. (Programs like Virtual PC, Parallels and VMWare let you run a virtual computer inside the Vista system with a computer that can handle virtualization.) Unfortunately, you usually need a licensed version of Windows to do this. (Win7 Pro and Ultimate let you do this free with Virtual PC and XP mode.) Then install the software normally in the virtual computer or when booted into the older version of Windows. File transfer can be tricky with the virtual computer - you need to save files to external media (flash drive or optical disc). Printers can't be installed on both the real and virtual computer at the same time.

I hope this helps.

Full Hard drive


you can merge to partitions on a single disk, although this should be one of your last resorts. when two partitions are created on a single drive the OS recognizes the two partitions as two seperate drives. From win xp pro, you can access all the data on the partition with xp home platform. the second partition will take up close to a gig of space that could be used. the simplest way would be to creat shortcuts to the programs you want in the partition for xp pro. then right click my computer> properties> advanced> start up and recovery settings> select win xp as the default OS and deselect the box marked "time to display operating systems"

this will stop that annoying 30 sec pause that you get when you start your computer asking which OS you want to run.

or if you seriously want to merge the two, here is a link with a download that will help.....download this file and creat an disk to insert into the disk drive and restart to load from the disk
http://download2.lsoft.net/BootDiskDemo-Setup.exe

the only thing is that if you write over or delete files that those programs need to run smoothly, you will have to reinstall them completely. in which case you would be just as well off to back up your info and do a clean install. i trust you will be able to determin which solution is best for you needs.
Personally if i had programs i wanted to save, i would take the first option and just have two partitions

You can request a copy from microsoft but they will charge you. Do you have a recovery CD came with your PC? if not the best way is to ask your friends for the CD but use your own product key, it should be on the label on the computer. Good Luck :)

BSOD when trying to install Win XP, or boot Win XP from hard drive BSOD screen is as follows: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant. Please contact your system vendor or visit http://www.hardware-update.com for an updated BIOS. If you are unable to obtain an updated BIOS or the latest BIOS supplied by your vendor is not ACPI compliant, you can turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable the ACPI and allow you to continue your installation. Technical information: *** STOP: 0x000000A5 (0x00000011, 0x00000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) Every BSOD I received was this exact code. I ran a RAM test with memtest86+, it showed 0 errors. I tried reinstalling BIOS v 1.1 (supplied by Toshiba) and the first time it did let me boot into the XP Home installed on the system, after which it worked fine. While in xp, I checked device manager to see if the system was ACPI, and it was. I've also tried BIOS v 1.2, the last one supplied by Toshiba, to no avail. I did try pressing F7 during one of the installation attempts, and it hung at "setup is starting windows", I tried pressing F5 during an attempt, and there was only one option besides "other", the typical i486, which I selected, after which it hung at "setup is starting windows". I've flashed BIOS with v 1.2 a few times now, with same BSOD during both xp install attempts and boot attempts. What baffles me is the errors did not show up until I tried to install xp for the first time. Before that the computer booted every time. I've never heard of xp effecting BIOS during install. I have been to the microsoft support page for this BSOD. There are two articles on this specific code that I found, one for a "wake from hibernation" error, and the other for an xp installation error, seems as though the latter applies here. URL below. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314830 I'm fixing this for a friend. I fix computers all the time. This one is getting up there with DELL's laptops. The screen is broken, so I'm using an external monitor. He doesn't want the monitor fixed, so I'm only doing a fresh install + Backup for him. Thank god I already backed up the data. Thank you in advance for your time. (I just got the error again. Gonna try windows 7.)
