I need to repair vista operating system


Step 1:
The first thig to do is locate the serial key if its not located on your computer you can find in the registry. http://download.cnet.com/%7Bvalue=http://www.download.com/magical-jelly-bean-keyfinder/3000-18487_4-10079600.html The Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder is a freeware utility that retrieves your Product Key (cd key) used to install windows from your registry. It has the options to copy the key to clipboard, save it to a text file, or print it for safekeeping.

Download the Windows Vista startup disk .ISO file. A .ISO file is a "disk image" file, meaning that it is a compressed archive of all the files that would normally be found on a CD contained in one simple file. Microsoft does not provide users with an official Windows Vista startup disk. Because of this, a number of services online provide their own for users free of charge. Download the .ISO (see Below) file to your computer's desktop. http://neosmart.net/blog/2008/download-windows-vista-x64-recovery-disc/ Put a blank DVD in your computer's DVD writer. Open your DVD burning program. As long as your program can burn .ISO files, you can use any software you'd like. Burn the .ISO file to a DVD by selecting the "File" menu, clicking on "Open" and locating the .ISO file from your hard drive. Next, click the "Burn" button in your DVD burning software and the files contained in the .ISO will be burned to the disk. Label your Windows Vista startup disk with a pen or marker and keep it in a place where you won't lose it. If your computer is damaged to the point where you would need a startup disk, you won't be able to use your computer to make one. It is very important that you do not lose this disk.

How to Boot and Install Windows 7 from a USB (even without an ISO file)


While searching in internet I found 3 ways of doing this thing. I will explain all of them here.
1st Method: (The simple one) * Requires a valid ISO image.
Download Microsoft's official tool to install Windows 7 from your USB stick.
Links below:
From CNET: http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-U...?tag=mncol;pop
MS Store: http://images2.store.microsoft.com/p...B-DVD-tool.exe - Microsoft Store Info Here.
To install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool:


  1. Click to open the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool installation file.
  2. When you are prompted to either save the file to disk or run it, choose Run.
  3. Follow the steps in the setup dialogs. You'll have the option to specify where to install the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool.
Note: You need to be an administrator on the computer you are installing the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool on. The tool requires the Microsoft .NET Framework version 2.0 or higher.
2nd Method: (Reliable method, Supports multiple types of image files) Requirements:
Now insert the USB drive, run UNetbootin, and select Disk Image as ISO( or select the type of image file of which you have).
Browse your local drive for Windows 7 that you downloaded and click Open.
Now Select Type as USB and choose the drive.Once done, it will look like a bit similar to the screenshot shown below.

unetbootinmainwindows77.png Click OK and it will begin extracting all installation files to the USB drive. The whole process will take some time(10-15 minutes), so have patience.
Once the installation is complete, reboot your computer. Now while your system is starting up press the appropriate button(usually F1, F2, F12, ESC, Backspace, or Escape) to bring up Bios Boot Menu. Change the startup order to boot USB by default, usually you will have to press F6 to move the selected USB device on top. Once done, save changes and restart the system.
3rd Method:( Try this if both above methods are not working) Using Ultra ISO application.
1) Download the free UltraISO trial by clicking on this
2) Start UltraISO as administrator
3) "Burn" the iso image to the USB stick by following these steps
With UltraISO:
- Open the image of Vista/Win7 with UltraISO
- Under BOOTABLE tab choose WRITE DISK IMAGE
- Choose your USB stick under "Disk Drive"
- Choose a method (It's recommended to use USB-HDD+)
- Press Write
PS: Make sure to change your BOOT order in BIOS to boot from your USB drive first.

How to save a word 2007 document to be compatible with Word 97-2003


If you want to save a document to be compatible to open in word 97-2003 you cannot simply automatically save the document because it will save as a .docx. Therefore you cannot click on the disk icon at the top to save your document.

1: Go to the at the top left corner
2: Choose Save As. Another menu will appear
3: Choose Word 97-2003 Document from the list
4: Choose where to save your file.
5: After the file has been saved as a .doc you can now just press save instead of save as. You can also press on the save symbol (a floppy disk) to automatically save the file now.
Yes you can but you must download a compatibility pack from Microsoft. This will enable you to open Word 2007, PowerPoint 2007, and more in your Office 2003 program. You can also download the free Open office program. It will open .docx files already. Go to the Microsoft website to download Word viewer
And you will also need Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint 2007 File Formats.

I cannot get rid of pceu virus on a windows xp pro fujitsu desktop because it has disabled safe mode and I do not have the windows xp cd to reinstall windows and the cd/dvd drive does not work .


Download the SP3 installation ISO. Save it to your Desktop. Download ImgBurn and save it to your Desktop. Double-click the installation executable for ImgBurn and click "Next." Follow the remaining onscreen prompts and click "Finish" to complete installation of ImgBurn. Insert a blank CD-R/DVD-R into your DVD drive. Open ImgBurn by going to "Start," "Programs" and "ImgBurn." Click "File," then "Browse for a source file." Navigate to your Desktop and select the SP3 ISO file. Click "Open." Click the blue "ISO to CD" button located on the bottom left of ImgBurn. The program will begin creating the Windows XP SP3 installation CD. This process may take anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes to complete depending on the speed at which the CD-R/DVD-R is being burned. Click "OK" once the CD-R/DVD-R has finished burning. You've successfully created a Windows XP SP3 installation CD.

I added a dvd+/-r drive to my e machine T3065. I cannot get the system to write to the drive. I can read a cd on the drive but cannot copy anything to the drive any suggestions?


Reloaded the factory restoration disk? You rock!
Haven't heard of anyone who still has their disk, for YEARS now!

I imagine the DVD burner software was probably Nero.
Nero's good. But I would like to recommend a free burner software.
One I have used for years. (When I use it, lol!)

You have to have DVD burner software, in order to copy with a DVD drive. (Or CD burner drive)

One more thing glancing at your problem heading you stated;

I do not see DVD-R/W, listed. It has to be a Read/Write DVD unit, in order to copy. A DVD 'Burner'.

Post back in a Comment. Also would appreciate if you would post the DVD drive manufacturer, and it's model number.

Dvd r/w player will not read pdf, jpg, doc files. It can only read audio and movie files.


Hello Roseanne,
You will have to open "My Computer" to access the DVD ROM and open/explore the disk from there by right clicking with your pointer on it and selecting open/explore or double clicking on it, then you'll be able to access those file extensions as a Data Disk wont auto run like your Video and Audio Disks do.
I hope this helps you.

I cannot download any cd or dvd on my Compaq Resario SR217ONX. Why?


Hmm...Something may be wrong really!

Are u able to copy from any folder within the hard disk?

Some viruses / malwares are preventing the copy function of the windows from working properly!!!
(So, try some good antivirus)

Also...one more info for u
   1. u must have sufficient disk space for copying files to hard disk:)
   2. if file system is FAT32, u may mot be able to copy files of size more than 4GB
   3. Try updating the firmware of the CD/DVD drive
   4. Try coming back here with more clues to ur problem :)

have a nice day
