Hello,

Did you complete the new install validation process? For most, who have a product key and install CD it may still fail, Microsoft or a tech local to you who can phone Microsoft Licensing and actually help you out, even if you ended up with a Pirated copy without knowing it was pirated. See phone number below.

Do you have full administrator privileges? You can right click the link in your menu and from the drop down list select 'Run as Administrator' and this may solve your problem. If it doesn't you do need Service Pack 1 from Microsoft that fixes more issues you wouldn't be the length of the list. If you can't pass the validation procedure all is not lost but you will need to phone MS from the number below and no matter what they can get you running correctly.

This phone number can actually get you free help from Microsoft themselves here:

Phone Support Wait Time: Will vary
Hours of Operation vista - onepixel.gifNo-charge: Unlimited support requests.
(866) 234-6020
According to Microsoft, downloading Service Pack 1 should resolve this problem as well as others only if you've validated your copy of Vista.

The download link for 32bit Vista service pack 1 is here.
The download link for 62bit Vista service pack 1 is here.

Don't know which you have, then you probably have 32bit.

Sorry this isn't an easy How-to Fix It, but the problems with Vista are far ranging. And after the service pack install, the issue will probably go away.

Kind Regards,
Worldvet

window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero.

Screen resolution changes to 800x600 after exiting a game


It sounds like you are playing an old game that cannot be run in the highest resolution your system could run in, therefore the game adjusts the screen resolution. To revert to your highest setting right click a blank area of the desktop, click personalize --- display settings -- and drag the resolution slider to the far right, as far as it can go. Of course when you start the game windows alert you that it is changing the resolution, you may click no to the change, but your game would be blurred. its one or the other. Choose!

Explorer problem


Hi

I suggest to restore the settings of your internet explorer to defaults. There could be bugs during your windows update.

1. Open internet explorer, go to tool --> Internet Options ---> Advanced tab ---> Reset.

Reset all the settings then restart your computer. In case you cannot open internet explorer because it will just give you a white blank page. try the following steps below.

1.1a Click Start -- type msconfig on start search box (for vista only). Click Run (for xp only). a pop up box window will show up (System utility configuration). Look for the tab Services.

Under services tab, put a check on the box that says "Hide all microsoft services" at the very bottom screen. Click apply then close. Restart the computer.

After restarting the computer follow step 1.

Keep me posted

Regards

Blank screen and being kicked out of word


Dell always provides System recovery with every PC,so you just copy all your personal files into external storage,then give system recovery,all the programs installed will get erased and then you install Microsoft office again.If they have provided you Vista DVD,then its better to format your PC,after copying files seperately.
