I think you upgraded from Windows Vista Home Basic to Windows Home Premium. In windows operating system you can only upgrade but can never downgrade an operating system. The best solution to this is to back-up your datas by either using a flash drive or burn CD's using your existing Home Premium system. After doing so, perform a clean format using DOS. Before doing so, gather all the CD installer that comes with your laptop like video, sound, LAN etc.. This is to install the drivers that will work with the new operating system.

Insert your Windows Vista Basic CD into the CD ROM drive and restart your computer.

It will autoboot from the CD and you can reinstall Vista Basic.

Should you have further problems don't hesitate to give more details.

Computers indicating missing operating systems have means to resolvement. First, ascertain that the hardware components are in place prior to restoring the missing programs.

I can not install the sound drive


Hi there !

If you successfully installed the sound driver in your computer to run your hardware device, I suggest you try to update your Windows XP through internet to be able to upgrade your operating system or download Windows SP3 upgrade installer to make updates through internet.

After that try to run on safe mode to correct or fix some error on faulty installation or too many drivers installed with the same drivers.

Good Luck.

Im getting this error sir: "windows


Hello

This should be a fairly simple fix. In the bottom right corner, or when you boot up there should be a REGISTER SCREEN... When it fails it will offer you the opportunity to call Microsoft. Go ahead and give them a call, let them know the type of computer you have, what the fault is saying. They may ask you to call dell and get replacement software, but since EVERY DELL ever made came with an operating system they are usually pretty good at giving you assistance.

If they dont and they force you to call dell, they (dell) might charge you a few bucks for a new install cd, or they may let you download one. Either way your problem should be solved in an hour .

Best of luck
