I just got this new computer. An emachines one with windows Vista. I wanted to install the printer my old computer used. it was windows 98. My printer is a Lexmark X2350.

Go to Lexmark.com and check on a vista update, most of the older software simply does not work with vista.

How to Install Windows XP on Your Preinstalled Windows Vista Computer


The question I am asked most often is “How do I install a dual-boot with Windows XP on my new Windows Vista computer?” The answer is that it’s not that difficult, it’s just very time consuming, and you need to own a copy of Windows XP.
Note that you should not attempt this if you aren’t ready to troubleshoot any problems that might occur.
The first issue we encounter is that computers with pre-installed operating systems take up the entire drive. Luckily Microsoft included the Shrink volume feature in Vista, so we can easily shrink the Vista partition down to make room for XP.
Open the Computer Management panel, which you can find under Administrative tools or by right-clicking the Computer item in the start menu and choosing Manage. Find the Disk Management item in the list and select that.
0b08f90.png
Now we’ll shrink our volume down by right-clicking on the main hard drive and choosing Shrink Volume.
768d761.png
Now you can choose the size that you want to shrink, which really means you are choosing the size that you want your XP partition to be. Whatever you do, don’t just use the default. I chose roughly 10gb by entering 10000 into the amount.
0067bd8.png
The next step might be confusing, because we need to change the cd-rom drive that’s invariably taking up D: at the moment, because we want to use D: for the Windows XP partition, but it’s already taken by the cd-rom drive. If you skip this step than XP will install onto the E: drive, which isn’t the end of the world, but it’s not quite as tidy.
Right-click on the cd-rom drive in the list and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths from the menu.
5aca6b3.png
Now we’ll change the CD drive to use E: by selecting that in the drop-down.
f034935.png
Now we can create a new partition for XP to live on and make sure that the drive letter is set the way we want. If you do not create a partition now the XP install will do so automatically, but it’s easier and cleaner to do it this way.
Right-click on the Unallocated free space area and then select New Simple Volume from the menu.
f6b9dd2.png
Follow through the wizard and select whatever options you’d like, making sure to use D: as the drive letter.
Now you will need to close out of disk management and reboot your computer. This is because we can’t do the next step until we reboot. (you can try, but it won’t work)
So we’ve come back from rebooting… open up Computer from the start menu and then right-click on the D: drive and select properties. Give your partition a meaningful name like “XP”. It would be wise to name the C: drive to “Vista” at this point as well.
9d3c065.png
Now you’ll want to pop your XP cd into the drive and boot off it. You may have to configure your BIOS to enable booting off the CD drive, or if your computer says something like “Hit Esc for boot menu” you might want to use that.
Once you come to the screen where you can choose the partition to install on, then choose either the unpartitioned space or the new partition you created. Whatever you do, don’t try and install onto your Vista partition! See how much cleaner it is now that we’ve labeled each partition distinctly?
be4f3b8.png
We’ll assume XP is completely installed at this point, and you will have lost your ability to boot into Windows Vista, so we’ll need to use the VistaBootPro utility to restore the Vista boot loader.
Update: VistaBootPro is no longer free, but you can still download the free version.
During the install you’ll be forced to install the .NET 2.0 framework. Open up VistaBootPRO and then click on the System Bootloader tab. Check the “Windows Vista Bootloader” and then “All Drives” radio buttons, and then click on the Install Bootloader button.
54885d0.png
At this point, the Windows Vista bootloader is installed and you’ll only be able to boot into Vista, but we’ll fix that. Instead of manually doing the work, we’ll just click the Diagnostics menu item and then choose Run Diagnostics from the menu.
8931492.png
This will scan your computer and then automatically fill in the XP version.. click on the “Manage OS Entries” tab and then click in the textbox for Rename OS Entry, and name it something useful like “Windows XP” or “The Windows That Works”
96c988c.png
Click the Apply Updates button and then reboot your computer… you should see your shiny new boot manager with both operating systems in the list!
0e6bb7a.png
If you get an error saying “unable to find ntldr” when trying to boot XP, you’ll need to do the following:
  • Find the hidden files ntldr and ntdetect.com in the root of your Vista drive and copy them to the root of your XP drive.
  • If you can’t find the files there, you can find them in the i386 folder on your XP install cd
This is a critical piece of information: Windows XP will be installed on the D: drive, even in Windows XP… so you’ll need to keep that in mind when tweaking your system.
477db8a.png You can share information between the drives, but I wouldn’t recommend messing with the other operating system’s partition too much… it might get angry and bite you. Or screw up your files. What I do recommend is that you store most of your files on a third drive shared between the operating systems… you could call that partition “Data”.

Can i use my emachine recovery disk on my gateway after i install a new hard drive on my gateway?


No, you can't. (Well, it might be possible, but very unlikely, that it would work.) Recovery discs are made for specific machines. There are a couple of reasons why the discs for one system can't be used for another brand or model.

In addition to installing the operating system (Windows), recovery discs also include drivers for the machine's included hardware (video, sound, media card slots, etc.). The drivers on the recovery disc for an eMachines system won't have what a Gateway system needs, unless they were built using exactly the same motherboard and other parts, which would be quite unusual. If wrong hardware drivers are installed, Windows may not start and give you the famous "blue screen of death". Or Windows will start, then begin finding new hardware and asking you for drivers you won't have (although you could find them at the Gateway website). The discs also include the applications the manufacturer preloaded on the system. Some of these may not work and cause problems because of the hardware differences (a sound control program with the wrong sound hardware, for instance).

The other reason is that a restore disc also includes information that gets placed into Windows so the system comes up already activated and ready to go. Activation is based on information about the hardware configuration of the system, and yours won't be correct. Windows will see the this and you'll need to activate manually. If the Windows version on the eMachines recovery disc isn't exactly the same as the one on the Gateway, the product key on the computer won't work when you try activation.

Rather than try using the wrong recovery disc, see if you can borrow or download the installation disc for the Windows version specified on the product key sticker on the Gateway. Then you can do a clean new Windows installation and activate it using the product key. You can find the drivers your computer needs at Gateway's website as I mentioned before. It's more work than just running the recovery disc, but it will work. This does mean the system won't have any of the preloaded applications originally on the computer when you're finished. But this is not a bad thing.

Much of the preloaded stuff on a new computer is often called "bloatware", which you really don't need. It just slows the computer down, uses up Windows resources, and may be gathering information and sending it to sites behind your back. You can find good free programs to do anything originally installed and install only what you really need and want. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

CD/DVD burning: CDBurnerXP
Antivirus: AVG, Avast!
Audio processing: Audacity
Image processing: GIMP
Office suite: OpenOffice

Good luck getting the system back up and running. Thanks for using Fixya!

I was told to reformat my computer. I don't know how. Can you help?


Actually, it's not recommended without know how to do it since it should be done by a professional or by an experienced engg/tech. Well, before you decide to format, you'll need a Windows cd, if you wish to install Windows xp, you'll need a Windows XP original CD or if you wish to install Windows Vista, you'll need a Windows Vista DVD, in the same way with Windows 7. Note: Formatting means wiping out everything from your computer, usually C drive so that you'll be able to install another copy of Windows, which means you'll first format the C drive and then install a new copy of Windows, without Windows being installed, you computer will never run, it's similar to a useless or dead machine. I don't mean only Windows, same conditions apply with Linux or Mac.
If you want to try yourself following the instructions, let me give you few links, but it's not a simple and short process, and I won't take the risk if you fail (this is why I'd mentioned that it's a job to be done by a pro). Here are few links from BlackViper.com regarding Installing Windows. Follow the link/s and follow the instructions, there might be several pages, so make sure you scroll down to the bottom of the page/s and click "Next Page" if you are done with the first/previous page. Before you begin, please read the full tutorial/s so that you will know what exactly you're going to do with your computer. If you can still boot up your computer, make sure all the files are moved from C drive to another partition or I would recommend backing up your computer's files.

Need to install my Canon S900 photo printer to new laptop running windows vista SP1


Hi,
Adding a printer in Vista is fairly similar to the process used in Windows XP, with only a few subtle differences. If your new printer is connected to a USB port, it will be automatically detected and you won’t have to do anything further. Vista will automatically install the printer drivers and configure the printer for you. The logical printer will appear within the Printers folder where you can make any changes to its configurable properties. In some cases, you may have to manually install the printer using the Add Printer Wizard. Once you physically attach the printer to your computer and turn it on, you can complete the steps listed below.
  1. Click Start and click Control Panel.
  2. Click Hardware and Sound then Printers.
  3. Click Add a printer. This launches the Add Printer Wizard.
  4. Click Add a local printer.
  5. Use the drop down arrow to select the port. Click Next.
  6. Select the Manufacturer of your printer and the model. Click Next. If your printer is not listed, click the Have Disk button. You’ll need to locate the manufacturer-supplied drivers on your computer or disk.
  7. Type in a name for the printer. This is the name that will appear under the printer icon in the Printers folder. Click Next.
  8. If you want to print a test page, click the Print a test page button. Click Next.
  9. Click Finish at the Summary window.
To download the drivers, Please click on the below link or copy the URL and paste it in your web browser. Select the operating system you are using and click on the download to download the driver.

Download the Windows Vista printer driver for the SCX-4216F multifunction printer from www.samsung.com.
  1. Install the driver on your Windows Vista computer. During installation, you’ll be prompted to connect the printer to your computer. Choose the option to proceed with installation without connecting the printer.
  2. After installation completes, open the Printers applet from the Windows Vista Control Panel.
  3. Right-click on the new Samsung SCX-4100 Series printer and choose Properties.
  4. Go to the Ports tab.
  5. Click Add Port…, select Local Port, then click New Port…
  6. For the port name, enter exactly the network path and share name of your printer (e.g. \\RECEPTION\Samsung SCX-4×16 Series).
