This might be one of those programs that must be installed in order to work. I would imagine that you must install the program and have it do a restore.
Some programs keep a record of the backup on the hard drive. When you upgraded, the record might have been destroyed. If this is true, your backup software will have a utility to rebuild the index of the backup so it will work.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_b57a4ca77bce4177981a716bb3d932c6(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_37914be2a9c340639799c674a792b2dd(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8. Note: To make sure the system is compatible visit http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/system-requirements. http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-8/upgrade-to-windows-8 b> When making significant changes to your computer such as an upgrade, it is always recommended you backup your system prior to installing a new version of Windows. Thankfully, all editions of Windows 7 includes system imaging, which means you can backup your entire Windows 7 installation and restore it if it fails. Learn more about how to backup your Window 7 installation here In addition to System Imaging, you can backup just your personal files using Backup and Restore, to do that, check out the following article: http://notebooks.com/2010/12/27/how-to-backup-to-an-external-hard-drive/

You can do some pre-requisite tasks to ensure a smooth migration from Windows 7 to Windows 8. If you are using a name branded computer such as a Dell or HP, go to the manufacturers website for the model computer you are using and download the latest available drivers for that computer. Store them on a disc or USB thumb drive. Important drivers you should try to obtain include Network and Video Drivers. Its possible that they might just have Windows Vista or Windows 7 drivers, those will work with Windows 8. Other things you can do: Uninstall any security software before attempting to upgrade. Disable any encryption software you might have installed. Disable/uninstall disk utility software such as DVD/CD burning utilities or third party defragment programs such as Perfect Disk. Make sure your computer is updated (devices and applications). Disconnect any external devices before installing. Check your hard disk for any errors:
- Click Start
- Type: CMD
- Right click CMD then click Run as administrator
At the Command Prompt, type: chkdsk /r /f
Exit the command prompt.
When you restart your system, your computer will be scanned for errors and attempts will be made to correct them. Another thing you can do is disable Start items: Click Start Type: MSCONFIG. Hit Enter on your keyboard On the General tab, click Selective Startup. Under Selective Startup, click to clear the Load Startup Items check box. Click the Services tab, click to select the Hide All Microsoft Services check box, and then click Disable All. Click OK. When you are prompted, click Restart. After the computer starts, check whether the problem is resolved. Run the System File Checker utility. SFC/Scannow checks your Windows installation for errors and corrects them. This will help with ensuring that a smooth upgrade occurs. Click Start
Type: CMD, from the results, right click CMD

Click 'Run as Administrator'
At the Command Prompt, type: sfc/scannow This will check for any integrity violations Restart your system

Reset Acer Aspire X3200 To Factory Setting

Assuming the restore partition is intact, boot the machine and press and hold F10 and ALT at the same time. If the partition is intact, you should be brought to a restore menu and given the option to restore to factory settings. If this doesn't work, you may have corrupted the restore partition and will need disks to install an operating system. If you created Rescue Disks in Vista, simply load the 1st disk and reboot.

1) HP Pavilion a6300f went dead only fans spining, replaced mother board with same make model, now ssytem boots but windows don't come up. 2) tried up grade from Vista Home to Vista professional to save...

For the first one, you need to enter BIOS and set the HDD settings. Maybe you can automatic detect it once and then the system knew where to load system from. If it can see the hard disk and reads it but no operating system found, then you may need to check the operating system on your hard disk.
For the second one, I do think it is better to upgrade to a upper level OS such as Windows 7. While you have Vista you will have better deal with Windows 7. If you do have a agreement with Microsoft to have newer OS for free in a certain period, you can get Windows 7 for free. If you don't have that agreement, you can get Upgrade version of windows 7 with a huge discount if you have Vista.
You can actually back up your data to an wim file on vista and restore all the data and settings after the upgrading. But be sure to keep a full backup of your hard disk and everything just in case.
You can enter BIOS and make sure booting from CD first. Then there is a key you need to press very early in the booting process to launch the recovery. There is also a factory default restore you can use. Did you call HP to find out what the key is and how to use factory default restoration? You can always plug the hard disk to other computer to back up the data and then restore to factory default and put the data back.

Can i convert a 32 bit to a 64 bit

You can use the Upgrade option during Windows 7 installation, which preserves your files, settings, and programs, only if you're currently running a 32-bit version of Windows Vista and you want to upgrade to the 32-bit version of Windows 7. Similarly, if you are running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista, you can only perform an upgrade to a 64-bit version of Windows 7. For more information, go to Upgrading to Windows 7: frequently asked questions on the Windows website.
If you want to move from a 32-bit version of Windows to a 64-bit version of Windows 7 or vice versa, you'll need to back up your files and choose the Custom option during Windows 7 installation. Then, you'll need to restore your files and reinstall your programs. For more information about performing a custom installation, see Installing and reinstalling Windows 7‍.
gl_ico.png Notes
  • To install a 64-bit version of Windows 7 on a computer running a 32-bit version of Windows, you'll need to start, or boot, your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files.
  • If you start your computer using a 64-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files, but your computer isn't capable of running a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll see a Windows Boot Manager error. You'll need to use a 32-bit Windows 7 installation disc or files instead.
  • Windows Easy Transfer can't transfer files from a 64-bit version of Windows to a 32-bit version of Windows. If you're running a 64-bit version of Windows Vista but you plan to install a 32-bit version of Windows 7, you can move your files to an external location manually or use Backup and Restore in Windows Vista.

I uninstall something to my laptop i cnt remember what it is, then when i insert my headphones it doesnt work but when its working on headphones my laptop doesnt work, what should i do?

Perform a "System Restore" This is the best option; it will “restore the system” back to a previous state, to undo the change. 1. Go, to: "Control Panel". 2. Click System and Maintenance. 3. Click Backup and Restore Center. 4. In the (left) Tasks area, click on Repair Windows using System Restore.” 5. The restore “Wizard” appears. 6. Choose (Recommended) Restore Point. Important! If this, restore point fail? Try again using a different “restore point.” Find the “furthest” (Date) prior to when your computer was functioning normal. 7. Follow all instructions thereafter. *Note: “Once the computer returns to Windows Desktop, “do not perform any tasks, for at least (45 min) the System Restore is still “running. “ I hope this Fix it.

Yes it is. But it used together with the Windows 7 Backup and Restore Center (Control Panel - Backup and Restore). If you set up the backup setting in this option, make a backup, and create a restore disk you will be able to restore your system in the event of a problem. Please note that it will restore the system as it was on the day you made the backup.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya's services.

This problem happens quite a bit with Windows Vista. It seems that Windows Vista puts a hidden file in the backup; which locks the device.

Open the external device (Windows 7 is fine). Click on "view hidden folders and files." Delete any hidden files you may have in the external.

Go back to "my computer" and right click on the external hard drive letter. Choose properties and security tab. Make your user-name as a main user (administrator) and disable the read only.

Reboot the computer and see if this works.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Restoring WIndow Vista

No, windows backup will only restore your data, for example My documents, Desktop, User settings, and Outlook data.
To restore the system you will need a windows install disk, or if your computer has a restore partition(like many dell, packard bell etc.), you can use the restore windows utility from partition.
