Vista operating system makes it own recovery disc, and you must make it before your computer crashes - to have on hand.
1. Click on the Vista Start Orb
2. All Programs
3. PC Help and Tools
a. Recovery Disc Creation
This will allow you to make one disk at a time, working with either DVD's or CD's, just make sure you have at least 6 CD's or 2 DVD's minimum.

How do i restore my windows vista laptop to


Hi!

Restoring your laptop back to it's original settings can be done in numerous ways but it would be easier to give you specific advice if we knew what brand/model of laptop you have.

Nearly all big brand laptops come with a restore disk or at least the ability to create one. Check the disks that came with your laptop for one labeled "restore" or "repair". If it came with a blank cd/dvd then chances are you'll need to create one.

I think this would be the easiest option for you if you're not too familiar with computers. Let me know what laptop you've got & hopefully i'll be able to point you in the right direction.

Printer (922) won't install on new laptop


If your laptop is running Vista and your old desktop was running XP and the disk you got with your printer had drivers that worked with XP and Vista is not listed on them, it would be a case of incompatibility. You would need to go to the Dell website to download updated drivers for Vista if they are not of the standard Vista driver package. (The driver model changed between XP and Vista making XP drivers incompatible with Vista.)

I had a virus on my Toshiba Satellite M45-S165 PC notebook. I had Webroot spy an virus protection. I did multiple full scans and it did not remove the virus. I then noticed that there was a newer version...


If you would like to have Vista, then I suggest going to Walmart or Bestbuy and buying Vista. Research the different types of Vista to see which is right for you. With the Vista disc you won't have this problem with the install. At this point I don't believe you can go any further unless you have an operating system disc and you don't really want to run 98. You've already got the new hard drive, you might as well do it right with what you want.

Memory Upgrade


Increasing the amount of RAM will always help your laptop's performance. However, in this case, I would try going to HP's web site and updating the video drivers or try a different program to play DVD's. 958 should be more than enough RAM to run DVD's smoothly. You can find DVD software at filehippo.com for free.
As for RAM instalation:
I would only let Bestbuy install them if it's free. Installing memory chips is simple, they're located under a panel on the bottom of the machine. (Be sure to power down first) Do it yourself and use the money you save on the outrageous gas prices.

Vista Upgrade from H/ Premium to Ultimate


I would contact Best Buy directly and let them know your situation. Usually they will honor stuff like this within the first 30 days of purchase.
