Games not working after upgrading to windows7


You will need to reinstall them using the correct installers, the ones specifically designed for Win 7 - if the games have them. Otherwise you will have to install them in XP mode.

I rebooted my operating system windows xp-sp2.now in my leptop the com port is not showing.instead of this only bluetooth port is detecting .how i will solve this problem??


I would suggest that you run diagnostics on your pc to isolate the issue and identify if it is caused by a hardware failure or caused by a software glitch on the system.

You can also try to repair the OS if the problem lies within the platform itself.

Please follow instructions indicated herein....

XP REPAIR INSTALL

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the
boot order in the system BIOS. Check your system documentation
for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see the
options below This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft
Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.
do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the
Recovery Console, press R", (you do not want to load Recovery
Console). I repeat, do not choose "To repair a Windows XP
installation using the Recovery Console, press R".
4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing
Windows installations.
5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and
press R to start the repair. If Repair is not one of the options,
read Warning #2 below!!
6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.
Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.
Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your
applications and settings will remain intact.

Blaster worm warning: Do not immediately activate over the internet
when asked, enable the XP firewall
[ http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=283673 ]
before connecting to the internet. You can activate after the
firewall is enabled. Control Panel - Network Connections. Right click
the connection you use, Properties, and there is a check box on the
Advanced [ http://michaelstevenstech.com/xpfirewall1.jpg ] page.

7. Reapply updates or service packs applied since initial Windows XP
installation. Please note that a Repair Install using an Original
pre service pack 1 or 2 XP CD used as the install media will remove
SP1/SP2 respectively and service packs plus updates isssued after the
service packs will need to be reapplied.

Service Pack 2 link. Copy and paste link into your browser.

How to uninstall Vista and load XP in Lenovo Y510 Ideapad


Several points:

1. Although you may prefer XP to Vista, it is probable that you are simply
more familiar with it. If you would give yourself some time to become
accustomed to Vista, you might find that you like it. I know I do.

2. You can't literally "uninstall" Vista, but if you want XP instead, you
simply do a clean installation of XP the normal way. That will format the
drive, removing whatever is on it.

3. Do you already have a copy of XP you want to install? Did it come with
your old computer? If so you need to be aware that OEM versions (such as
those that came preinstalled on computers) are permanently tied by their
license to the first computer they are installed on. If that's your
situation, your copy of XP is not available to be used on your new laptop.

4. Over and above the licensing issue in point 3, many OEM version of
Windows XP are BIOS-locked to the computer they came with, and you actually
won't be able to install it on a different one.

5. You should check with your vendor to be sure, but the warranty on your
new computer may be voided if you change operating systems.

6. Laptops often have special drivers they need for components within them.
Your new laptop undoubtedly came with all the drivers needed for Vista, but
it didn't come with the drivers needed for Windows XP. Finding and getting
the drivers you need may be a problem.

If I were in your shoes, I'd stick with Vista.

If you still want to uninstall:
The normal way to "uninstall" any operating system is to format
the hard drive and install a new OS of your choice.

After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation, simply boot from the WinXP Home installation CD. You'll
be offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as
part of the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order
of boot devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)

Then the backed up data can be restored and applications re-installed.

You can even try a dual boot, where you have both Vista and XP on the same system. Click HERE for pictorial guide.

Error report


  1. You've probably got in your hands some recovery/restore CD's from your PC vendor. BEWARE. For example, Fujitsu laptop CD's are only used to restore the HDD to its original factory state! Fuji will not give you a XP CD to 'recover' the hard disk, only to 'restore' it. Nice huh?
  2. Use a Windows XP retail CD ,better than having to use the OEM's restore CD and lose all your data.
    • IMPORTANT: if you've got Windows XP SP2 installed, you CANNOT use a Windows XP SP1 CD. The recovery console from the SP1 CD will not accept even the correct admin password when run on a Windows XP SP2 HDD. You must run the recovery console from a modern SP2 CD, then you'll be able to correctly login to your Windows XP install on the HDD.
  3. Pop in the Windows XP CD, reboot, making sure to select boot from the CD option. On some PC's you'll have to hit DEL on reboot to enter the BIOS and select boot from CD ROM. Other PCs you hit F12 while booting up.
  4. WIndows XP will start to load. Eventually you will be prompted to select between Setup Windows and Repair Windows. Hit 'R' for Repair Windows. The RC (Recovery Console) will look for existing Windows XP installs to repair. Usually you have just the one, listed by the RC after it has scanned your disk, so type '1'. If the RC doesn't find any Windows Installs...you're in trouble. Note: Windows RC can find a Windows install when Windows Setup can NOT find one, so the RC seems more low level and reliable.
  5. Usually your admin password is blank, so just hit a return when prompted for a password.
  6. Type 'help' for the commands that the RC can run. You won't be able to access any folder other than C:\Windows and C:\ top level. The next two steps are probably only safe if you have a single partition on the whole disk.
  7. Try 'fixboot'. This re-writes the boot record.
  8. Try 'fixmbr'; again, this may damage a partition table that it doesn't understand, so be wary of taking this step... you may want to use this as a last resort and only if you have a single partition on the disk.
  9. Run CHKDSK /P C:
  10. If you get errors still, rerun or also do a CHKDSK /R C:.
  11. If the CHKDSK finally succeeds without errors, then you should be able to exit from the RC and reboot OK.
