I cannot re-install Set point from the original disc Since it says that a newer version is in my computer. I therefore wanted to remove set point and re-install it again, using my disc. However it is impossible to remove the programme. How can I overcome, this problem?

    Try first removing the program from Control Panel/Add Remove Programs.
    If thisa does not work, and you install the update you can do a system restore to before installing newer version.
    To do system restore On Win XP:





    1.

    Click Start.


    2.

    Point to All Programs.


    3.

    Point to Accessories.


    4.

    Point to System Tools.


    5.

    Click System Restore.


    6.

    Follow the instructions on the wizard.

    If it still does not work use a software like

    Revo Uninstaller

Operating system not found


Unfortunately, Acer PC's do not come with an Official Microsoft Install Disc, however, you should be able to reset the computer to its original factory setting(s), by pressing either F10 or F11 at the initial start-up of the computer, not the start-up screen of the operating system. If this does not work, even though it should as long as you have not altered the HDD internal disc drive to the point to were you would have removed this factory installed reset function. In the event that this setting is not found or available, one other option is to connect an external CD/DVD-ROM Drive to the computers USB port load a copy or an original Microsoft Install Disc into the CD/DVD-ROM Drive. Turn your PC on and at the initial start-up screen of the computer, not the operating system start-up, access the computers bios screen, or boot order screen and adjust the computers settings to boot initially from usb port/external hard drive/CD?DVD-ROM Drive. If your computer allows you to do such, you should be able to re-install the operating system, be it the same or a newer windows version or some other type. NOTE: If you have the know how, you can download free operating system online for free, and creat your own "boot-able" flash drive...

Windows Installation Disc VS Windows Upgrade Disc -NOT THE SAME-


Having Trouble Booting To Your Windows Upgrade Disc?

...Upgrade discs aren't bootable discs. To repair a windows installation, you must use either a system repair disc or, better yet, a windows installation disc (genuine Retail/OEM discs are pretty much your only option to completely reinstall your windows operating system, unless you own a previous full installation disc of a previously released Windows version (such as XP or Vista), in which case you could install that windows operating system and then upgrade to a newer windows OS like windows 7. however if you ever need to reinstall windows 7, you would either need to reinstall the older windows OS, then upgrade to the newer one.

If that isn't clear, I'll sum it up....

Let's say you bought a computer, that computer had windows xp home edition. Maybe you wanted to upgrade from Windows XP/Windows Vista or Windows 7?
Well in order to switch from Windows XP/Vista to Windows 7, (or even from Windows 7 home premium- to windows7 Pro or Ultimate), then you must either:
A) Buy an upgrade disc and upgrade to the newer desired version.
B) Or, Buy a Retail Copy of the version you want to install. (keep in mind that a retail Windows 7 disc can be used to perform an upgrade rather than to competely wipe the hard disc and perform a clean install (delete partitions, reformat, and perform a new windows installation), if you so choose.

The bottom line is, you cannot Install a fresh clean copy of windows using an upgrade disc. OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) and Retail Windows Operation System Installation Setup Discs are "Bootable Discs". Windows Upgrade Discs are NOT bootable. (unless one where to "modify that particular disc, which is not legal).

I have a IDE HDD from my old Medion computer, which I want to install as Master in a newer HP dx5150MT computer. Having installed it; and, having tried and exhaused ALL options within BIOS & CMOS


You have to change the boot information in the MBR (master boot record) on the hard discs. To do this, you need either the install or update CD/DVD for your version of Windows (make sure that the SP matches). Note: if the drive from your original Medion computer has the drivers (motherboard and other hardware) from that computer, you need to reinstall the OS on to that drive. Then fix the boot record as you install the OS. Usually uninstalling the motherboard drivers is recommended before moving a hard drive to a new system.

You need to boot from the optical drive. Either set the BIOS to check the optical drive first or press F12 repeatedly as the computer starts up. (I usually have to restart and try again to access the change boot order menu.) Once you are in the Windows, you need to access the recovery console and the command prompt. You need to have the recovery program identify all the Windows OS options on the discs. If you have XP, first use the map command to identify the discs. Then use the command fixboot (devicename) and fixmbr (devicename) to put a new boot partition on the appropriate drive and then fix the MBR.

With Vista or Win7, the commands are slightly different. Use the Bootrec command. First use Bootrec /ScanOS to identify the versions of Windows on the drives. Next use the /RebuildBCD switch to list the available OS versions. Next use the /fixboot (if you want the Vista or Win7 OS to boot first) and /fixMBR switches.

Any hard drive repair utility CD for Windows will likely have a program to repair the MBR. These may be easier to use with some combinations of OS versions.)

I hope this helps.

No installation cd


Many newer computers have a backup reinstall program on a partition of the original hard drive. While booting in Bios hit F10 or F12. Your should get boot options as well as the Recovery Install option. Before using the Reinstall option try using the System Restore. The computer automatically sets restore points and you can select "Last good settings" restore point. In "safe mode" you can access more options in Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. There you will find other dates which you can restore to.

If you cannot boot you can use a manufacturers recovery disk. Unlike a MS full version CD the recovery disc will reinstall all software and hardware back to the state it was in when it was new. Depending how old your computer is, you may have to do many downloads from Windows Update.
You can get a recovery reinstall CD from the computer manufacturer, or check with friends if any have the same brand computer as their disc may be compatible with your computer. The discs are manufacturer specific and will only work on the same brand computer.

Why can't I download my CANO SCAN set up CD-Rom on to my new Windows 7


The CD-ROM has the installers for older versions of Windows. The installation routines for the newer versions of Windows have changed considerably from those that were in use when the CD was written. You can get the drivers and Canon Toolbox software for the scanner from Canon: http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/scanners/canoscan_series/canoscan_lide25#DriversAndSoftware . Select Windows 7 in the dropdown menu. The software will work with any version of Windows 7.

The only exception is that the third-party software is not available for downloads. If you want to use the original CD software (assuming the disc is undamaged) and you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode for a free XP virtual computer. Then install the scanner to the "XP computer" as you normally would. However, the virtual computer and the Win7 computer cannot both have the hardware installed simultaneously. So to share files, you may need to save them to external media (optical or hard drive). If you have one of the other versions of Windows 7, you can do the same thing with any virtual PC program and a licensed older version of Windows.

I hope this helps.

How do i reboot ,my laptop offline. internet explorer won't let me online i have viruses


Before you worry about restoring your computer, see if you can clean up the trouble. From another computer, download MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware (the free version) and put it on a flash drive. Install it in your computer and run a full scan. This is a very effective program, updated continuously as new bad software comes along, and is the first thing I try when someone calls me for help.

If MBAM doesn't fix it, you can try another program called ComboFix. You can get it here. (A tutorial and download link is here at BleepingComputer.com, a good site for getting information and help on computer troubles.)

If you need to restore your computer (you said "reboot", but I assume you mean "restore", which puts the original factory software image back on), you'll need the manufacturer's recovery disc or discs. Older computers usually came with a set, but most newer computers no longer have the discs included. Since CD or DVD writers are standard equipment, the manufacturer provides a utility program that lets you make your own recovery discs after you set up the computer. This is a step many people ignore, however. If you don't have a recovery set, you might be able to purchase one from the manufacturer, or you can install a fresh copy of Windows yourself.

Try MBAM first, then ComboFix if necessary. Chances are very good that this will get your computer going again. Good luck, and thanks for using Fixya!

Ms-7061 msi motherboard will not install win xp with sata drive


The problem is that your version of XP does not have SATA drivers and therefore does not recognise your new drive. Vista does. If you Google the problem you will find many solutions on how to rectify the situation. Basically, you have to make a floppy disc with the correct drivers for your Motherboard's hard drive controller. Then, when you launch your Windows XP installer, it will ask you a question about needing to install 3rd party drivers. Yes is your answer. Tap F6 to ensure that the installer doesn't skip.Insert the floppy disc and then after the drivers are loaded, the installation will proceded normally. The other alternative is to leave your existing XP installation in place and add the new disc. Later you can clone your old disc onto the new drive and then remove your original disc.
