Using my memory stick on vista

HI, only recently I came across onto vista from XP. I do a lot with word and and have installed a 2001 version for it to be compatible with my workplace. I've tried today using word on vista and it appears fine although when using a memory stick it will allow me to make word documents, although won't let me make any changes and I lose all the data. Can you please assist

Make sure that your memory stick is not write protected, if it is not make sure that it is not full , and if it is not try to format the flash with the manufacturer format tool

My aspire one netbook says ntldr is missing. problem is it does not have any cd drive or floppy drive so how can I get passed this problem?


This is common of a virus/malware attack. Really you could do with an external cd drive to run a antivirus boot disk and then use a repair cd to copy over a clean ntdlr file.
Otherwise (if running xp) there are ways of getting XP onto a memory stick to run the repair, search google for XP Memory Stick and you should find a guide.
But really this is a job for a technician (like us at MCSLondon) who could do this for you quickly and cheaply, if you are confident then try the repair option with the memory stick but be careful not to install over your data.
A technician would take our your hard drive and put in a new one, then install a fresh operating system onto that, and then transfer across your data from the old hard drive.

How to install windows XP Pro without using cd drives


Find a computer with a CD-ROM drive.
Find a USB memory-stick that can hold 1 gigabyte.
Copy all the files from the CD-ROM onto the memory-stick.

Carry the memory-stick to the CD-lacking computer, and plug it in to a USB port, and install from there.

I have recently installed vista. My pixma MP760


is the driver that you are using is for vista or you are using the xp driver? if you have upgraded to vista the driver for your printer should be vista compliant, if you dont have version for your vista you can download it thru the internet, just visit the site of the device manufacturer there you can get a driver that supports vista

My comp crashed recently, i've changed the hard drive and now can't load an OS onto it. we've tried 3 different versions of xp and vista and four different discs, any suggestions?


A memory dump or the blue screen on start-up with the memory address as you mentioned is telling you that there is a problem with hardware - it could be you new hard drive - try making 2 partitions on it and remember to do a full format and not a quick format, I would also be looking at your ram and making sure it is ok. I have come across many times where a computer has been working ok with the old ram but after formatting and reinstalling it would crash at about 36%.

HOW TO INSTALL XP IN VISTA OS OF LAPTOP HP PAVILIION


Hi there.
The only way you can install XP on a Vista machine is to install "virtual XP" onto Vista using Virtual PC 2007.
Here is a site that will take you through the procedure step-by-step and gives links to download Virtual PC and install it onto the machine.
Please be aware that some drivers may not work whilst using XP when you have it installed.

Installing norton anti-virus without internet connection


Yes it is possible.
To install full version you need either to purchase a disk or to purchase the download from Symantech.

If you have purchased the download or if you want to install the trial version download, just copy the install file onto an usb memory stick.

Plug the memory stick with norton install file onto your computer with no internet and run the installer from usb stick.

This will install norton with no need for the Internet.

If you buy nortom full version you may need to validate installation by phone, but that is not complicate.

You can download Norton from one of the websites below:

Norton AntiVirus for Windows 2000/XP/Vista

Hi, Unfortunately any of Bernina's software that is older than Version 5 , will not work with Vista. There are some software patches available on the berninausa.com web site, but there is nothing out there that will help you if you have any Version 4 software or older. Microsoft really through out a curve ball to everyone with VISTA as there is a lot of software out there that will not work in that operating system.
Actually the lowest cost solution would be to get a nice used computer that runs Windows XP. You do not need a super fast, state of the art computer to run embroidery programs.
I bought a nice used computer at a yard sale for $10.00 and it even came with the XP install disk. I replaced the hard drive just because they do wear out after a few years, installed XP in it and that computer is now in my wife's sewing room and it is only used for her embroidery work.
You might have a computer repair shop in your area where you can buy an older XP computer that has been reconditioned. The few dollars you would spend to get an older computer would cost you far less than buying new Bernina Version 5 software. It is EXPENSIVE! Good luck...bushvideo

Hot sync with vista


I have Vista Home Premium and I hotsync my peg-n760c using Palm Desktop. It came with version 4.1, but it was a disaster. The Cd is old and isn't compatible with Vista. So I downloaded an upgrade from Palm.com and I definitely don't use the Jukebox software that came with it either. Go to Palm.com and download PalmDesktop Win62.exe and install it. It should recognize your USB connection and hotsync immediately. Also, use Windows Media Player and change the files to mp3 by using a free program called Switch. Just google Switch and download the basic program. Then load the mp3 files onto your memory stick in Windows Explorer. Then use MSimport to load the memory stick files into your handheld. Good luck!
