If this is the SYNET07526, then you cannot change it to Win 7. You are stuck with CE and the installed software unless you just want to experiment. See my TIP at http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing

My friend had also that notebook but she just browse the features of it and later on she learned how to use it. Windows CE is not a complicated software it's a simple program and easy to learn. Good Day!

SOURCE: I have a Sylvania 7

I've got bad news: I don't think it is possible - period. Windows CE runs on an ARM microprocessor. And you have the exact same model netbook I'm using right now. Even if you succed installing that version of Office to an external hard drive and connect that hard drive by USB, this model number of netbook simply doesn't have to computing power (or possibly the right type of microprocessor, either). If you check the Minimum Requirements on Office Pro 2007, I think you'll see that it requires and Intel or AMD microprocessor. You and I are using an ARM propcessor :( Also, I was looking into the likelyhood of expanding the memory in this machine my wife just bought. It's a cute machine' but can not do as advertised. It keeps freezing when we log into Facebook. If I can't expand the memory, this baby is going back to the store. It'll be some little kid's first computer! Good luck!

No! you cannot use anything made for W7 on CE as of yet.

Please try to follow the detail below.

It is looking for a password (WiFi Network Key) You have to double click on the little computer icon down in the right tool bar area, the one with the two side radiating arcs, and possibly has a small red X under it. The red X indicates that it is NOT connected. When you double click on that icon a window called RT28701 opens up, then you click on Wireless Information tab, then you cursor down to the name of your WiFi and high light it and click the connect box. Then another window opens up called Network Properties. Uncheck "The key is provided automatically" box. This will allow you to type in your "Network Key", the password that protects your network from outsiders. This "KEY" was set up when you installed the router on your server computer. If this does not work at first, turn the machine over on it's back and using a toothpick, insert it into the little hole about an inch diagonally from the right corner of the data plate, this will re-load a new copy of everything including the WiFi RT28701 driver.

sometimes this driver gets confused. See my TIP at: http://www.fixya.com/support/r7350901-fix_synet07526_wifi_flashing


Additional Information


When I try to sign on with the red X showing, I get "The page cannot be displayed If I then double click on the icon down in the right corner I elucidated above, RT28701 opens up to "Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) with all zeros in the IP address field, and Subnet Mask, with no entries in the default gateway. That is a clue to me that the auto sign on has not found a viable network or needs something else. If I then click on Wireless Information tab, The list of available networks appear in the box. The machine keeps trying to associate my previous entered name site with my prefered site and tells me the signal is good, but it cannot link up. This is a signal to me that it has lost my Network Key or that the software has failed or both. I then click on advance and delete my prefered network and hit OK, this will force the software to ask me for my network again, and notice that the prefered is missing. I click on the name of my network again and then hit connect., then the Wireless Network properties window opens up and I can insert my Network Key again after I uncheck the "The key is provided automatically" box. I enter the key and hit the OK button. I still do not get a connection, so I reboot the machine, and wait for about 30 seconds and the machine synchs up because the little RED X under the icon has disappeared. Now the machine will hook to the internet as long as I want to, but sometimes when I turn the machine on it will not synch, so I go through the above sequence again. The secret is once you have entered your key and ask for the machine to synch up you have to reboot. Why? I do not exactly know, but I suspect that the WiFi driver looses it

Your netbook doesn't run Windows XP, it uses a cheap version called Windows CE, which is more designed for phones. The reason that you can't install Firefox or Chrome is because Windows CE doesn't support programs designed for Windows XP, Vista, or 7. You can try installing Opera Mini by going to m.opera.com, but there no guarantee that it will work.

Hi my netbook is giving me this error on startup with Windows CE: application explorer.exe encountered a serious error and must shutdown. I do not know what to do and it does not allow me to do anything. ...


Is your CE netbook running CE Version 6? If so I can probably help, I have instructions on how to make a recovery "disk" on an SD card. Assuming all of these Chinese 7" "netbooks" are identical, this should restore you to factory-fresh status; I've had to use my recovery card five times so far, as these netbooks frequently dump the OS. I would have to send you a docx document (zipped). Are you still out there?
