Yes, and you're definitely acting too thick to be trusted with a computer. For example, if you'd recorded error messages with more exactness, and attribution of errors to a particular context (say, a Windows Vista bluescreen or a particularly titled message-box;) then I might be assured that you could suffer people well to help you accomplish ambitions and fly through the checkpoints and tribulations. This is not yet the case.

Give some context as to what was working and when it stopped, what reproducible signs of malfunction and diagnostics arise, and in the case of Vista activation on spare HDs, RTFMYGDSOBOMGROFLMAO. Vista's acting normal. Try installing another OS for the practice and diversity. Most glaringly, you need to form complete sentences, with clear attribution of what says what when it says it.

Windows wont work


Windows Vista and Windows 8.1 are two entirely separate operating systems; your computer may use one but not both concurrently and Windows Vista 8.1 does not exist. When opened, Vista does have a desktop as you have described. However, once Windows 8.1 is launched, a start menu consisting of application tiles will appear. In order to "activate" 8.1, you must first have it on your computer. So it would seem that your 8.1 installation failed and you still have Vista.

The touch screen homepage on my computer doesn't work anymore.


Hi

When you sat the screen doesnt work anymore. What is the exact problem? When your initially start your PC do you notice any programs not appearing that where there before?

Have you also tried wiping the screen gently with screen wipes as fingerprints over time can cause some issues.

Thanks

Internet


  1. Look at the network connection icon wheter its blinking or not during refreshing the web page.
  2. If it does not blink check connection between router and pc
  3. check Netgear internet settings.
  4. Check if there is any block settings in the router.

Window Vista has lots of updates, and it's bit defender is working everyday to check your pc. This is really slowing your programs including Internet Explorer.

To test if your Windows is haveing problems or not, you might download a linux live CD such as PClinuxOS or Knoppix to test the connection.

If you can browse the internet no problem then it would be your Windows has a problem.
