If your sure after going into the control panel and going into the power options icon that all your power settings are set to none then there could be something in the background that is causing the laptop to go into sleep mode.
Click on the windows logo in the bottom left hand corner and in the search box type in the word MSCONFIG. Press enter and then go into the startup tab. You'll see all the programs that are running. Best things is to click on the box that says disable all. click on apply then okay and let the computer restart. Let it run for a while and see if it goes into sleep mode still. If it does then that means there is an issue with the Operating system and you should try doing a system restore (located in the system tools section) back to the last date the laptop was working properly.
If it stays out of sleep mode then that means one of the programs that was disabled is the culprit. You'll have to go back into msconfig and enable all the programs and then disable the ones you know you dont have to have starting up when you go into windows.

The drivers may now be default Windows instead of original, so you could try forcing by right clicking the setup and using trouble shooting mode. Or just go to Dell support and enter service tag on their web site, then look for updated Win 7 drivers. gl

Installing adobe acrobat pro 6 to windows 7


This is an old version of Acrobat that was written for NT, Win2K and XP. Due to changes in the OS, it's hard to get the program to install in Windows 7.

Which version of Win7 do you have? (32-bit or 64-bit and Home Premium, Pro or one of the other variants) Since you indicated this under the Dell Dimension E521 with 1 GB of memory, I'll guess Win7 Pro 64-bit. (This uses the 64 bit CPU) You can check by clicking Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the Windows version ends with x64, it is the 64-bit version. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

Under the 64-bit OS, you need one of the following workarounds: a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer running an older version of Windows. If your hardware supports virtualization, this might be a good bet if you can add memory to computer. With Win7 Pro or Ultimate, you can download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft and run XP for free. Then install Acrobat in XP mode as if it were your only machine. (Note: the Virtual PC requires a share of your total memory and doesn't give it back to the main computer while it is running.)

The other methods listed require a licensed version of an older Windows OS.

If you have the 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can try the compatibility mode. Right click on the installer and choose Properties. In the compatibility tab, check always run in the compatibility mode and select an older version of Windows. Then click Apply to save the changes and then click OK. Then right click again and choose Run As Administrator. You may have to repeat the compatibility mode changes for the program itself.

You may want to consider upgrading to a Windows 7 compatible version of Acrobat. The current version is Version X.

I hope this helps.

What is the procedure to install a 32-bit softwares in to my laptop(windows 7,home premium,64-bit) ?


Most programs designed for the 32-bit version of Windows will work on the 64-bit version of Windows. Notable exceptions are many antivirus programs.
Device drivers designed for 32-bit versions of Windows won't work on computers running a 64-bit version of Windows. If you're trying to install a printer or other device that only has 32-bit drivers available, it won't work correctly on a 64-bit version of Windows.

Windows 7 64bit does run programs that will run on windows 7 32bit, see here

How Windows 7 / Vista 64 Support 32 bit Applications

BUT not ALL 32bit programs will run on Windows 7!!! There are many programs that will run on Windows XP and before that will not run on Windows 7. IF you had Windows 7 Pro version (or upgrade) there is a program you can download from Microsoft that will simulate an XP environment to allow programs to run called "XP MODE".
Try to install the 32bit software first. If installation not succeed, it would be better if you first look into a newer version of the program you want to run.You have to consider that a newer version of your program might not be that much more expensive than upgrading to pro, and with the newer version, usually comes newer features.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

Intel 82562V-2 10/100 ethernet adapter does not turn back on from vista sleep mode


I have the same network card.
Never had this problem with Vista (32 bit) but recently switched to Win7 (64 bit) and had the same problem as you.
I solved by going under Control Panel->hardware->network card properties->power save and unchecking "Allow pc to switch off the device to save power"
