    Do you want to remove Vista and install XP? Quite a few times this doesn't work out entirely as there may be hardware in your PC that is only designed for Vista.

    With this in mind you would normally contact tech support over the phone for instructions.

    Sorry, can't help you out more without knowing what PC Maker you have and what Model Number. The model number is on the back of the Case and varies from the Model Name.

You if have vista all you ahve to do is run the dsik and then it will ask you to upgrade it. but if you will use linux then its different, you will need to boot from the disk and then install linux but this will format you harddrive

My problem to my pc is i can`t install a new operating system,my old operating system is an windows xp and this is a japanese os, i want to be change the os at windows 7.i had 1g of ram 2 point something...


Hello, I´m from Argentina, then, sorry by my English. Try to install other XP, you can find in pages XP in English or Spanish, probably your problem is the language of your OS. After that, install Windows 7. If you fix the problem or not, please, write me at vcginformatica@gmail.com and tell me then will find other solution.

There is only one OS, but during booting it shows three


Delete the OS Command line inside the MSConfig indow by clicking start - run -type msconfig then press enter. On the MS config window click on the boot.ini tab then you will see the command line inside the text box. Leave the first command line from [Boot Loader] till the end of the command line of your Default Operating system.

Example:
(Leave this lines)
[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Microsoft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect
(Till here!)
(Delete this line)
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Viz XP Example line Professional" /fastdetect (up to here)

any other command line that says Viz XP -- you may delete it. Click apply button then Restart the computer afterwards and this should fix the issue.

Should you have any other questions just please leave a comment.

Cheers~

Is the lexmark x1150 printer compatible with any computer. I have a hewlett packard


Yes, The printer drivers are determined by the operation system therefore it does not matter what brand of computer. If you have the disk that came with the printer you can load the drivers on your HP computer. If not you can go to the link below and select your operating system and download the current driver.

It says that


It means your laptop has no Operating System.
Is this a new laptop?
You will have to install an Operating System (OS), by using an OS installation CD.

If you dont know how to install an operating system, you can view my tip on installing Windows XP which is a generally similar process of installing other Windows OS (Vista, Windows 7)

List of smallest os


Well small OS doesnt not mean a Usable OS (as far as modern standards are concerned)

The smallest OS's are of course, DOS, windows 3.1, OS2, Windows 95 and Linux (due to its modular design it is very scalable)

However the average person is not going to be able to do much on these operating systems, the only small OS that is really usuable is Linux but requires a great deal of time investment to learn and use.

Windows XP is your best bet for a modern OS that will allow you to do everything (multimedia, games, entertainment and software compatability)

However i wouldent call windows XP a small os, just smaller then vista.

Windows XP OEM OS


Yes, you have to purchase a new copy of Windows XP... Or alternatively you can try a freeware operating system such as UBUNTU. It does basically the same stuff your Windows did, just with a little more flair! http://www.ubuntu.com/
