You can determine it by running DXDIAG (directx diagnostics) by typing dxdiag into the search bar. The opening screen of DXDiag will show the version under the classification "Operating System"

If it says SP1 under Operating System, then service pack is installed. If it doesn't (like this one doesn't) then it isn't.

Did you do ALL your windows update before the Service Pack? That SP has been out for years? Doesn't your laptop have Windows Updates set to Auto? Choose one or the other, Vista or Win 7 and do a Full Install.

Have Vista but not sp1 or later, cannot download office2010. How do I upgrade to sp1


Just go to Control Panel. And then look for an icon that says Windows Update. Click on it and click on check for updates on the left hand side. It will check which updates your system needs, and eventually will also download SP1 for Vista.
Note: You should have internet connection for this. Better if its broadband or high speed and not dial up. If you don't see Windows Update in Control panel, try going to the icon that says System / Security.

I cannot get into my files


Hi,

Check in event viewer to see if chkdsk ran. Normally when chkdsk runs, it throws an event into the event log.
It should be in the Application event log. Lets verify that it did run.

To fix any corrupt system files, lets try System File checker.
Click Start
Click All Programs
Click Accessories and right click on the Command Prompt.
Select the Security Tab and choose "Run as Administrator"
Click on Command Prompt
Type SFC /Scannow.
This will scan and fix any corrupted operating system files.


If you are still having problems after a SFC scan, then we can try a In-Place Upgrade which will do a repair of the operating system. You will need to have the DVD installation disk. An OEM recovery disk will not suffice.

Note: After performing In-Place Upgrade, your personal data and installed programs will not be removed but we may need to run Windows Update to install all the available updates for your system to update these system files to the current version. This troubleshooting process is time consuming and may take several hours to complete.

If your DVD installation disk is prior to Sp1, and you have SP1 installed on your computer, you will need to uninstall SP1 to complete the in-place upgrade and then reinstall the necessary windows updates .


If you would like to perform the In-place Upgrade, let's refer to the following steps.

1. Start the computer by using the current Operating System.

2. Insert the Windows Vista DVD in the computer's DVD drive.

3. Use one of the following procedures, as appropriate:


• If Windows automatically detects the DVD, the Install now screen appears. Click Install now.

• If Windows does not automatically detect the DVD, follow these steps:


a. Click Start, click Run, type Drive:\setup.exe, and then click OK.

Note Drive is the drive letter of the computer's DVD drive.


b. Click Install now.


4. When you reach the "Which type of installation do you want?" screen, click Upgrade to upgrade the current operating system to Windows Vista.


Please run Windows Update again as you will need to download and install the most current updates.


If you do not have the Windows Vista Installation DVD, I suggest contacting your PC manufacturer to order a backup disk.



Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

Webcam of Acer Aspire 7720G does not work with Vista SP1


download or update the latest drivers for the camera. Otherwise, download sp2.
If none of these work, which they should, then you may have to do a system restore and go back to the time before sp1 was installed
