Sorry for the late response been busy lately, have you also tried turning off the password protected sharing on your Windows Vista computer? Since you mentioned you have a wireless router, are both computers connected wirelessly?

My HP mini 2133 is asking for password when start up but i have never set a password and dont know what it is? How do i log into my computer or what is the password


First thing, try and leave field blank and see if it logs you in. If that doesn't work, try to log in with a different username if possible. If no avail with any of the both, try the following:
-see this for XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/321305
-or this for Vista/Win7 http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-vista/What-to-do-if-you-forget-your-Windows-password
In case nothing of the above worked, you can use thrid party software from Hiren's Boot CD to reset the password http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/Hirens.BootCD.12.0.zip

Can I install windows XP in Acer aspire 5270z to instead vista


Just to make sure I understand the question, you want to install Windows XP on to your computer instead of Windows Vista? Yes you can install windows xp. If your computer came with windows vista you will need to buy windows xp with a COA or Certificate Of Authenticity. This is the code that comes with any Windows software that allows you to prove you have a real copy of windows.

I bought games xcopy and used it well on my xp computer....until the computer crashes. my new vista computer does not seem to like my games xcopy and it will not work. can you give any suggestions?


Hi!
To put it bluntly, it finished. XCopy does not work on XP yet, if ever. Its a driver issue and a software compability.
Try using NERO 7 or above to do the same thing.

Xp logs on then logs off immediately on acer 5100


I'd suggest booting into Safe Mode (press F8 after the POST information is finished on bootup) and then you should see an option for Administrator. If you can sign in successfully there, go to Control Panel and create a new account under User Accounts. Boot normally after that and see if you can sign in the new account.

Two questions: 1) is this XP or Vista? and 2) did you recently make any significant changes to the software (namely try to change the Certificate of Authenticity)? If what I suggested works, I'd say boot into Safe Mode again and then run System Restore for Windows. Set the system back to about a week ago and try logging in normally.

Greetings,

Since it is working fine on XP, we'll focus on Vista (as it was recognized before).

As stated here, Creative website Vista information page, your product is supported natively (driver is built-in Vista).

Scroll down to further suggestions and locate the Firmware Upgrade link for Vista compatibility (there's also a link button on top of the webpage just under the MP3 Player Recovery Tool button).

Keep us posted and thank you for using our service.

Wireless connection of netgear wireless router for compaq laptop


Sometimes firewalls on your computers can cause connection issues. I had the same problem with my home network. I had norton internet security 2008 on both systems, but the firewall settings on both computers had to be adjusted to allow the computers to talk. If you have different brand firewalls on each computer, you should consider to switching one of the computers so that it matches the other.

Another thing you want to do is log into the router's web utility and check to see if the wireless settings are blocking wireless connections in some way. You also want to make sure the ssid broadcast is enabled.

Finally, you really should consider using security on your router, so wireless connections would be password protected. I suggest wpa personal.

Product error


Hi xMartax,

There are alot of things that can be challenging when upgrading to Vista or installing a fresh Vista installation, for sure. I'll see if I can help to at least shed some light on things and hopefully we can find a solution. Because your problem is complicated and atypical, I'll have to ask some questions before I can get started.

To start with, I'm curious about how your computer "crashed" to begin with. This information will be very useful in determining the true cause of the problem and, hopefully, a resolution.

1) What kind of problems were you having previously?
2) What operating system were you using?
3) What did you attempt to fix the problems?
4) Did you perform any hardware diagnostics? (hard drive diagnostic, memory diagnostic, mainboard diagnostic, etc)

Because there are so many variables at play with a Vista installation, I've got some basic questions for clarification. If you can answer these questions I'll be able to do some research on the problem. Some of these may have been answered in your original post, but I want to be sure I have the right information.

5) What brand and model of computer are you working with?
6) Did you perform an "upgrade install" of Vista from within XP or did you perform a "clean install" from the disc?
7) When exactly did you encounter the error?

Please reply to this post with answers to these questions and I'll see what I can do. I may need more information once the original questions are answered, but I'll let you know.

I would suggest contacting the Janome headquarters in your home country and ask to speak to their education officer for specific ideas on this question.

This Vista thing seems to be developing as an issue for many software developers in the wider community and as far as I know Microsoft has delayed the end of support for XP because Vista is still considered "flaky".

As a Janome dealer we have not been given specific information about the troubles, though it is emerging that some things are not entirely well.
