Question about PC Desktops

I have just installed a Dell PC with vista home premium. I wish to install my Phlips web cam SPC 21ONC. The installation disc does not say it is suitable for vista. Can I use this disc, it seems to cause problems when I attempt to install it.

Windows 7 Home Premium on Dell Optiflex 760 desktop


This model was released in the Vista era but is not horribly old. I have updated some hardware from XP/Vista to W7.
However Dell does not list W7 as this model predates the OS.
http://www.dell.com/downloads/emea/products/optix/Optiplex_760_Spec_Sheet_en.pdf


However, microsoft lets you run compatibility tests with the Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor. See: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=20

I would estimate your chances of success as very good - but check the MS Advisor.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

Webcam = Not working


When you installed the drivers, did you do so after loggin in as ADMINISTRATOR?? This is vital otherwise it will not work. Also a quote from the manual goes like this quote -"Exit the “Found New Hardware Wizard” by hitting the cancel button. Unplug the VGA webcam
from the USB. Insert the software CD into the drive tray. Follow the software installation
instructions. Once all software is installed (direct X, HP Web Cam drivers, ArcSoft
VideoImpression, ArcSoft Photo Impression), close the HP Webcam window and RESTART the
PC. After restarting the PC, plug in the VGA Webcam and run ArcSoft Video Impression to
capture a new video." unquote.
Hope this helps..................sodeep

Cannot install CARD GAMES for Windows


It's probably an issue with Vista, right click on the icon, go to properties, run as administrator, and run in compatability mode for XP. If this doesn't fix the problem, try contacting the software manufacturer.

Can't clean install.


If you have a system that requires the manufacturer's proprietary device drivers, you will most likely have to return the system to it's original configuration using the restore CD, and then upgrade. However, there's no guarantee Vista will even be able to use the device drivers of the original system configuration. After you restore your system, check the manufacturer's web site for new Vista drivers. Unfortunately, Vista drivers for older systems may not be available at all.
