What is the make and model of your dongle? Vista does not have drivers for all hardware but usually there are workarounds.

I am looking to set up an old computer with new memory and hard drive. I have windows vista from my laptop computer can I install this into my newly updated computer and how.


Generally, the licensed software for your laptop is tied to that machine/brand. If you bought a copy of vista and installed it on the laptop, you may be able to install vista on three machines if that is the version you bought.
Most Microsoft programs are locked to one machine and won't activate on another system.
Now, if this is an old, slow (less than 1 Ghz) with less than 2 gigs, it probably will run Vista very slowly if you get it installed. I'd use the OS that was on the old machine instead of trying to install Vista.

Windows Vista doesn't recognize cable


XP & Vista require different drivers to run hardware devices.
Visit the Vista compatibility site to determine if your hardware is compatible, by clicking here,
or visit the manufacturer's website to see if there are updated drivers and firmware available for Vista that you can download and install.
Another possibility is to visit Windows Update and run a custom scan with the cable attached and see if you are offered a hardware update for your system that would make it work, but this seems unlikely in the case of a cable...
Good luck!

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Copy windows vista from my laptop to my acer pc


you can not just copy vista. you would need to get an install cd of vista and install it onto the pc. this still may not fix your internet problem as there is no guarantee that vista will even have the drivers for your pc components.

ok you can not just simply download drives from the internet. If you have a home computer that is plugged into the printer that has bluetooth then get a bluetooth usb and plug into the laptop, and it should print from the laptop.

Bluetooth


Bluetooth isn't installed on this computer if F8 didn't work. You will have to purchase one. Several years ago Toshiba was putting Bluetooth drivers and controls into their notebooks but not hardware to run it. It was a stupid idea and it really lead to a lot of confusion. If you get a new bluetooth transmitter/receiver remove their drivers as well. F8 won't work on the device unless you purchase one from Toshiba.

HELP!


get rid of vista? that is my suggestion, but if it came with the vista install cd, try running the system restore from the disk. note: YOUR PROGRAMS MAY DISAPPEAR IF YOU DO THIS!!! if you have an xp install/restore disk, you could try installing it onto your computer, but it won't look like vista. to get the vista feel back, download vitamiser from www.softpedia.com
