Problems loading Vista

Hi,

Don't know if you can help or not but I am having a problem loading vista from scratch on a new pc. This is the second time I have loaded vista, so I know the spec of the PC is goo and all part bought are vista ready.
The problem I have is that when I install vista it goes through the first 4 stages, expanding, applying updates.....then reboots, after the reboot it looks like its going to work in that I get the green progress bar at the bottom of screed, but then it blue screens on me, indicating that it could be a hardware fault. Now the strange thing is, if I don’t change anything but the DVD and replace the vista cd with the windows xp cd and go through a fresh install deleting all partitions formatting drive and installing from scratch, it works fine.
In addition if I take the hard drive out after loading vista and put it into one of my other pc, vista continues with the install and successfully completes.

I can't work out for the life of me what I am doing wrong and would be grateful for any help.

    Thanks,



    I should have said that the version was Windows Vista Ultimate,

    this is a full verrsion, not an upgrade (OEM)

    Thanks for trying.

What edition of Vista do you have? Without full version you can't put vista on first. You will need to have an old windows virsion like 98, 2000, .xp
Vista has about 7 differt Editios exp Home version complet, or upgrade,
Prof upgrade, or profel
if you have bought upgrade profl. You will need to have an old op of xp prof.

Windows vista activat again


Hi,
This is helpful to you :

OR

After you get the blank screen, ( After logging in. )

Press either Ctrl+Shift+Esc, or Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

Once you do that, the task manager should open up.

Once open, go to processes and look for Explorer.exe, You might not find it, Because sometimes apparently Vista forgets to start it.

If it is there, Right click it, and End Process.

Once done, ( Follow this step if it isnt there also. )

Go to the Applications tab, and click 'New Task...'

Type in Explorer.exe

This should force the GUI to load, and you shouldnt have any problems from there...

If your computer is new, I'd suggest getting the new Drivers also, as this may reduce the number of times you'll have to do this.

Rome Total War!‏


That is your problem. If the game is not compatible with Windows Vista, It won't play it, or play it normally. What I mean is that the game is pretty old (in date created), and the software used to create it was not meant for Vista. Because Vista came afterwards (I think). And Vista has to downgrade while running the game. But it could only downgrade so much. And when it downgrades, it's actually working harder to play the game than having a whole bunch of stuff open at the same time. Vista playes it, but only for a while, because it's not going to downgrade any more.

Hope this helps.

P.S. If you want to play the game, I recomend you get a computer with XP.

I have a Canon MP210 all in one printer and I am running on Vista Home Premium. I have downloaded the latest driver for this model. I am experiencing data transfer problems, sometimes the printer works...


There's an incompatibility issue with the Vista operating system updates and the Canon MP210.

  • Booted in Safe mode with only the print driver loaded - printer worked
  • Tried disabling all services except Microsoft services - Printer messed up
  • Reinstalled Vista from scratch (what a pain!!) with no updates - printer worked
  • Installed SP1 - Printer messed up
  • Uninstalled SP1 - printer worked
  • Installed Automatic Updater without SP1 - Printer messed up

Installing problems


If you are working with Microsoft Vista, then take your pc or notebook back to the company you bought it that they can reload Vista. It is probably a software problem. With me it installed etc and i can print, but each time that i must plug in the printer usb cable in my notebook, it tries to install it again. Finally goes the reason, Vista software problems.

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32

Loading windows anytime upgrade


Hi, Unfortunately Microsoft has blundered and not told anyone. Most older programs will not run in VISTA. I hope you burnt your download to a CD, you could use it at a later date when Microsoft finaly put VISTA right. At this time you only have two choices. Buy all new software that is VISTA compatable or go back to the good old faithful XP. Regards mistyman
