I found out my VGN-AR870 supports hardware virtualization, but the current BIOS does not. Is there a BIOS upgrade that will work?

Enable LAN card in BIOS. Operating system is not finding the on-board LAN adapter.


It seems to be a fault in your hardware, if your hardware were working correctly you would have found your LAN working after upgrading your BIOS firmware.
You should replace your LAN Card Device.

Thank you very much...

Doesn't enable virtualization


To determine whether your PC supports hardware virtualization:

Step 1. Does my PC have a CPU with support for hardware virtualization?


Download and run the Hardware-Assisted Virtualization Detection Tool

If you receive the message This computer does not have hardware-assisted virtualization, your computer does not meet the hardware requirement for Windows Virtual PC, but you can still use Windows 7 XP Mode by running this hotfix. Be aware that XP Mode will run much better if hardware-assisted virtualization can be enabled.

If you receive the message Hardware-assisted virtualization is not enabled on this computer, go on to Step 2 below.

If you receive the message This computer is configured with hardware-assisted virtualization, download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode.

Step 2. Does my PC BIOS support hardware virtualization, and is it turned on?

Instructions to turn on hardware virtualization in your PC BIOS are specific to OEM models. It is important that after changing your BIOS settings the PC is completely shut down at the power switch before restarting so that the new BIOS settings can take place.

Examples for some models of some computer manufacturer's BIOS settings are below:

Sample instructions for your PC

Expand all

Dell systems

Depress the F12 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select BIOS setup and depress the Enter key

Using the mouse, expand the Virtualization Support menu item by clicking on the plus to the left of Virtualization Support and select Virtualization

Check the Enable Intel Virtualization Technology checkbox

Click Apply

Click Exit

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

HP systems

Depress Esc key when prompted at startup

Depress the F10 key to Configure BIOS

Scroll to System Configuration using the arrow keys

Select Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress the F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Lenovo ThinkPad systems

Depress the blue ThinkVantage key when prompted at startup

Depress the F1 key to enter the BIOS setup utility

Using the arrow keys, scroll to Config and depress the Enter key

Scroll to CPU and depress the Enter key

Scroll to Intel Virtualization Technology and depress the Enter key

Select Enabled and depress the Enter key

Depress Enter key to continue

Depress F10 key to save and exit

Select Yes and depress the Enter key

Fully shut down (power off), wait a few seconds, and restart your computer

Acer

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Asus

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Samsung

PCs capable of supporting Windows XP Mode have already been enabled and do not require additional configuration.

Panasonic

Depress the F2 key when boot menu text appears at startup

Select Advanced menu in Setup Utility

Change "Intel Virtualization Technology" setting from Disable to Enable

Depress F10 to exit Setup Utility

Select Yes in confirmation menu

Depress Enter to exit confirmation menu.

Please note the instructions above may not work in all cases and consulting with your computer manufacturer may be necessary. Additionally, we expect hardware virtualization to become more available when Windows 7 is shipped, particularly in business-class PCs. For those PCs that come pre-installed with Windows XP Mode we recommend the computer manufacturer turn on hardware virtualization before shipping the PC.


Once you have confirmed your PC supports hardware virtualization
Download and install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP Mode

hope this helps

QuickCam Messenger V-UAS14 Win7 x64


There is a work-around if you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to one of those versions). Download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode software from Microsoft. Use the work-arounds if your hardware doesn't support virtualization. (You'll find the details at the Microsoft site. My computer that currently runs XP mode handles virtualization if enabled in the BIOS so I'm not completely informed on the steps.)

Then launch the XP mode software and install the camera to that "OS" as well as the QuickCam 8.4.8 software from Logitech. This may not be practical if you want to do video-conferencing with the QuickCam Messenger. It will depend a bit on how much memory you dedicate to XP mode since XP mode is 32-bit. (It will only see 3 GB.)

Since Logitech didn't include this model of the QuickCam Messenger in their updates to the QuickCam program for later OS versions, you are stuck this XP limit. You can also use a second computer, a dual-boot computer or another virtual computer program with XP installed. However, these require a licensed version of XP. Other virtualization programs include VMWare and Parallels.

I wish that I had better news for you. (It's a pain to have good hardware and no drivers. Unfortunately, I don't know any programmers who would be willing to write the drivers and software for the web camera from scratch.)

Sir i m using windows 7 ultimate...n i want install tally 7.2. i cant use it in windows 7. i m also trying run as administrator, change compatibility mode in windows xp sp2 mode...but i hve same probs..so...


Hi,

Tally 7.2 is not longer supported. You might need to upgrade to the newest version.
The only other suggestion is to see if you can run in XP Mode. This will depend upon your computer requirements.

Running Windows XP Mode requires:

1. Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate editions.
2. A computer capable of hardware virtualization. This means your computer has a central processing unit (CPU) with either Intel-VT or AMD-V virtualization features.
3. Virtualization features turned on in your computer's basic input/output system (BIOS).

To determine whether your computer's CPU is capable of hardware virtualization, go to the Windows XP Mode and Windows Virtual PC support website and download a utility that can check whether your Intel or AMD CPU is compatible.

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/support/configure-bios.aspx

To find your brand of processor so you can download the appropriate utility, click the Start button , right-click Computer, and then click Properties. Under System, next to Processor, you can see what type of CPU you have.

Even if your CPU can run Windows XP Mode, you might also need to turn on virtualization settings in your computer's BIOS. Procedures vary depending on the BIOS manufacturer. For more information, see BIOS: frequently asked questions.

My vga card for sony vgn-t2xp model pcg-4d1m


The model of your sony vaio is VGN-T2XP/L and chassis type is PCG-4D1M

I can only give you a link where you can download necessary drivers, updates/firmwares or original drivers that comes with this unit. It depends on what operating system you are currently using.
If you then upgrade your operating system for example from windows vista to windows 7, then suddenly some hardware including sounds, lancard, vga experienced some troubles, I do suggest you downgrade again your operating system or find appropriate compatible drivers that will work for your new operating system.
In this link you will find something that might help you.

Let me know.

Window7 installation


1) you have to make sure that you have ALL the required Windows 7 drivers for your Laptop AND additional devices/application (eg. Wifi adapter, Modems, USB DTV, External Keyboard, etc). 2) get and install a 'Windows 7 UPGRADE' for your current Operating system. (Check for free upgrade?) 3) Windows XP mode (and native Virtual PC) is only available if you upgrade to the Professional or Ultimate versions AND your CPU and BIOS support 'Hardware Virtualization' ... even my Intel Dual Core T4200 processor does not support this feature!!!
Hope it helps: let me know how you go!
