If you insert it on a USB located on motherboard there usually should not be problems, only if you forget to enable in BIOS, USB 2.0 or USB legacy support. If you have a card reader installed, please verify the pin connection required. You can find it in your motherboard manul. USB Legacy is generally required if you want to boot from some USB device and not all motherboards require that to be enabled to recognize and boot from USB devices.

Bye.

How to Install Windows 7 from USB Flash Drive


what if you don’t have DVD-ROM and you are running Windows XP, you might have guessed in this case we can’t install windows 7. Since Windows 7 ISO size is around 2.24 GB so its obvious that you will need to burn windows 7 iso on DVD and another issue is you can’t start windows 7 installation by mounting ISO file on windows XP as Windows XP upgrade to windows 7 is not allowed. In such situation installing windows 7 from USB pen drive is feasible solution.
Here is small guide on how to install windows 7 from USB flash drive or USB pen Drive for Windows XP users.
How to Install Windows 7 from USB Flash Drive Requirement:
USB Pen Drive (Min 4 GB)
Windows 7 ISO (32 bit or 64 bit)

MBRwiz Download and Extract it on your hard drive (Diskpart utility for Windows XP doesn’t detect USB drive as Disk hence we need to use this free utility to make bootable USB drive).
1. Connect your USB Flash Drive to your computer Format USB drive
2. To Format USB Flash Drive Go to My Computer -> Right click on USB drive and select Format from context menu.
3. Now go to Start Menu->run->cmd (Open Command Prompt) and Type following command
convert i: /fs:ntfs (Where “I” is your USB drive latter)

4. Mount Windows 7 iso as drive (You can use Freeware MagicDisc download from here).
5. Type Start->run->cmd
Now dir to directory where you have extracted MBRWiz and run following commands

mbrwiz /list (note down disk number of your USB Pen drive)
mbrwiz /disk=X /active=X (X is Disk Number of your USB Drive)
exit
6. Now open another command window and type following command
J: (Drive letter of Windows 7 iso mounted with demon tool)
CD boot
bootsect /nt60 Y: (Y is drive latter of your USB drive )

7. Now copy all files from drive where you have mount Windows 7 iso
8. Now reboot your computer and press F9 to get your BIOS screen and select USB drive as your boot drive.
9. If every thing goes fine, Your Windows 7 Installation should start from your USB drive.

How to repair a computer?


I am not sure what is wrong with your system but if it is software doing a clean install will fix it for sure :)

Performing a clean Windows install involves:

1. Gathering your Operating system CD/DVDs

2. Gathering your system specific drivers from the manufacturers website, then place the drivers on a USB thumb drive.

3. Preparing the system by backing up any documents you want to save onto a removable USB hard driveor USB thumb drive.

4. Go into your BIOS by pressing one of the following: F1, F2, or DEL on system startup. Once you are in the BIOS ensure it is set to start from the CD/DVD drive under the BOOT OPTIONS menu.

5. Place your installation disk in the drive. When it asks, Delete the partition, create a new partition, and format the hard drive.

6. Enter the serial number/ run the installation / Complete the installation

7. After the OS is installed and you are looking at the Windows desktop, plug in your USB thumb drive that has all of your drivers. Navigate to the drive by opening up MY COMPUTER and then the corresponding drive letter.

8. Install each of the drivers one at a time, doing a reboot after each one.

9. After drivers are installed your system hardware should be installed. you should be able to play music, get on the internet/network, and the screen resolution should be better than 640x480. You can verify your drivers installed correctly by going to CONTROL PANEL, SYSTEM, HARDWARE, then DEVICE MANAGER (under windows XP) and look for any devices with a yellow exclamation mark. If any are marked you will need to find the correct drivers for that device.

10. Once your system is up and running plug in your external storagedevice that you backed up your stuff in step #3, and simply copy it back to your system.

Problem about task manager


open the task manger
select view
select CPU
choose a graphic for the CPU
if you have dual CPU, you need a setup for each CPU.

as far as OS serial key. the windows Xp or newer OS detect the machine model. (manufacture embedded the comparability hardware serial.) then you can just activate the OS online.
THe older machine must have a legal copy of the OS. activation is not possible if the OS is counterfeit.
