I have a hewlitt packard computer that runs windows vista.When I try to install my cd rom DK DINOSAUR HUNTER it says to contact the software vendor to find out if there is a 64 bit version avalible. It ran...


Unfortunately, you may be out of luck. :( The newer 64-bit operating systems have trouble running the older programs that were designed for 32 or 16-bit platforms. You can try this however: open control panel, click on 'Programs', then click on 'Use an older program with this version of windows', follow the prompts and be sure to choose "I want to use the program in the CD drive". Good luck!

Speed up my pc like new


Windows Vista was a very resource hungry operating system. I recommend a PC to run at least 2 Gigabytes of RAM on top of at least a 256 Megabyte or 512 Megabyte Graphics Card to be able to use it effectively. I have tested Windows 7 Beta and they have done ALOT when it comes to better performance. I ran Windows Vista Home Premium on my laptop with 2 GB of RAM and a 256 MB Graphics card and it was kinda slow, I am now running Windows 7 Ultimate Beta and it is TONS faster. Vista was pretty much built to be slow, no questions about it.

I do not know if Windows Vista driver software for the MFC-3240C is available on CD/DVD.

You can download either the Full Driver & Software Package or the Add Printer Driver Wizard for Windows Vista ("regular" edition) from this page.

Presario 2200 starts up, gives me safe mode screen


Yeah, windows did not install correctly the first time around & you need to reinstall with a format. Isn't there anyone you know who has a real CD, (Do not take a chance with a copy) you can borrow? Call you're brother or email him & ask if you can get his CD again. You can always but a windows CD. The price has dropped alot since Vista hit the market. Click on this link.

(Do not buy Vista), unless you like problems.

HOW TO SCAN ON HP PSC 1315


i have a Vista system and an old hp 1315. the CD driver that came with it includes some very useful software that cannot be installed in my laptop. according to the hp website, that's because Vista comes with a compatible software for my hardware. checking Windows Help & Support gave me this solution:

Open to Windows Photo Gallery, click File then click Import from Camera or Scanner.

i did exactly that and it worked!

i hope this was of some help.
