Unlock windows vista


1 fix for this issue is to use the restore disc that came with the pc. If you don't have those and u have a vista disc you can use the Vista disc to install Vista and get the vista code off the Microsoft sticker on the pc. You can contact Microsoft for help as well they may have a way of unlocking it. Also if you are looking to upgrade the pc and u have a Vista install cd you could just put in a new hard drive and then install Vista on it. Hope this helps you. The other issue is there may be a BIOS Password if so then there is a whole new set of issues.

I could not upgrade neither windows XP, Windows 7 of this Product Model: GT5662. Would you assits? Thanks.


Hello kelvinvu, according to the information that I gathered from this computer model, it has Windows Vista 32 bit home premium installed on it. Windows XP is an older operating system so you can't "upgrade" to it. You could however install a fresh copy (more likely completely erasing all your previous information on vista and data files) or you could upgrade to Windows 7. Since you are using "Windows Vista 32 bit home premium", you have to upgrade to "Windows 7 32 bit home premium" or better. So if you were trying to "upgrade" to Windows 7 Home Basic, it will not allow that since it considers that a downgrade in the Operating System. You should actually be able to pop in the Windows 7 Home Premium CD while vista is running and start the upgrade process pretty painlessly that way. Just access the CD and walk through the menus for upgrading Vista to Windows 7. As a reminder, you must use the 32 bit discs. If you try and use the 64 bit discs (a different operating system as far as windows is concerned) you will have to go through the same process of installing a new version of windows (not upgrade). I hope this has solved your specific problem kelvinvu, have a great day!

Are certain restore disks interchangeable?


Unfortunately you cant use a vista restore disk for a XP operating system.

You could install vista on it and then use XP compatibility mode for whatever programs you want to run. Simply right click on the program and select the compatability tab..change to XP.

Forgot to save password for w3650 emachines now i am locked out


The only way I know how to reverse a password that you have forgotten on Windows Vista)

This way is to boot from the Windows Vista Home Premium DVD-ROM drive and then run the system restore utility off the disc. You can revert back to a time when you did not have the password but this will erase any programs you have installed up to the date you forgot it.
