Dell :: E6400: To Install Windows XP Fresh

Sep 20, 2008

Just ordered E6400 with Windows Vista Home Basic and will install Windows XP SP2 as soon as it is landed. Is there anything I need to know before installing XP in E6400 (e.g. back up driver, compatibility with hardware, etc)?

Lenovo P/Y/Z Series :: Y580 With Windows 8 - Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Dec 1, 2012

My Y580 should be arriving shortly. I got it on the Black Friday Special and it comes with Windows 8. I bought a SSD to replace the HDD and I am wanting to downgrade it to a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate or Pro and I have a couple questions:
 
How to do this for the Y580? I have not been able to locate one.
 
Also I am assuming I would not want to use the Windows 8 device drivers correct? Do I use the Windows 7 device drivers?
 
Would use the drivers from the Lenovo site or each devices specific website? I am going to try to save them on a DVD in advance and want to be prepared.

HP/Compaq :: Fresh Install Of Windows 7

Apr 20, 2010

My new DV7t Quad should be coming on Friday. Right now it is stuck in China, but I was wondering. Would it be better to keep the Windows 7 that they have install on the computer, or should I do a clean install? Right now, I have Windows 7 Ultimate running my old laptop, however, I only the disk for the 32 bit. While my Quad will be a 64 bit.

So if it would be a benefit to do a clean install, could someone explain how to do it without having a new windows 7 disk. I did order the system restore disks from HP when I bought the computer.

Dell XPS 15 L521x :: Windows 8 Crashing On Fresh Install

Apr 8, 2013

I've got a XPS 15 L521x that was running Windows 7 for weeks with out incident. I decided I'd like to try Windows 8. I installed (after changing Sata to AHCI) without incident. After the install completes I reboot and it crashes. The OS goes to "attempting repairs". I can run a "refresh" of the OS and it will fix the issue and then crash again after a reboot.

Dell Inspiron 600m :: Setup And Configuring After Fresh Install Of Windows XP SP2

Jan 24, 2015

I brought my Inspiron 600m back to life and did a fresh install of Windows XP SP2. After that I began installing drivers for it from Dell.com at the following link.

[URL] ....

Now there wasn't any  drivers that other recommended like chipset/system drivers available when searching by service tag. However if you search by model (600m) a lot more come up. Im not sure if I should download any of them.

My problem is it cannot connect to the internet and the ethernet port is dead. I have no error messages. I tried LAN connections using an ethernet cable to another machine and it does not take.

I am running Intel PROSet/Wireless and it does see nearby networks but cannot connect. It says configuration failed. I have read all the usual documents for troubleshooting but no solution yet. I have heard there where some flaws with this model and some of the equipment.

Acer :: Acer 6930ZG With A Fresh Install Of Windows 7 RC 32bit - MapleStory Blue Screen Of Death

Aug 15, 2009

I have an Acer 6930ZG with a fresh install of windows 7 RC 32bit. I can play Call Of Duty 4, Counter Strike, Flatout 2 etc. with no problems! But when I try to open MapleStory a blue screen appears, and begin to make a physcial memory dump? . MapleStory is a 2D-game, and Call Of Duty requires much more.

I made a little research, and I found out that alot of people have the same problem, and they said it was caused by a conflict with a program or hardware drivers. I have tried to delete my NVIDIA driver, and install it again. No luck.

And yes, I have also tried to run MapleStory in compatibily mode

As I said: It's only in MapleStory I experience the problem, and I don't think it's ram-failure, since I have seen the same problem on a different computer, and I can play Call of Duty 4.

Here is the system log:
Problemsignatur:

Dell :: Fresh Install, Gparted The Key

Jul 10, 2007

If you are thinking about formatting and re-installing the OS, and setting up new partitions, use GParted. It is a free and very easy to use program. I couldn't believe how easily it worked sparing me the $40-$60 that a good partition program uses. I just thought I would give these guys some free press since they do all that work for free.

Apple :: Only VGA RES On Fresh XP Install

Mar 22, 2009

Just did a fresh install of XP on my bootcamp partition. And I can't gat any drivers to work correctly with the 9600m GT. Tried several drivers from Laptopvideo2go.com, but they keep reverting to a basic VGA res and color depth. It will not let me adjust any settings.

It says sothing about the currently installed graphics drivers was written for a previous windows installation, so teh default VGA driver will be used.

If anyone has any info to help a guy out here it would be greatly appreciated.

I never experienced any issues like this on either Vista x64 or Win7 X84/64.

Dell :: Install A Fresh Copy Of Vista

Jun 22, 2009

I got a Dell a few weeks ago and I didn't want to be left without all the right drivers etc so I just went with the install they put on it and took out all the bloatware.

Should I create a 2nd partition, and install a 2nd copy of Vista on that and then gradually migrate all the drivers and programs over to that side and then just eventually delete the first side?
Would that improve performance as well?

Then when Win 7 comes out I can just upgrade to that as well.

Anyway of knowing if I would get any conflicts or missing drivers or anything? Any problems you can think of?

HP/Compaq :: Fresh Install DV4T

Feb 18, 2009

I just did a fresh install of Vista Home Premium 64 Bit following Orev's guide. I backed up the SWSetup folder and everything went fine except a couple of things:

1.) Quickplay. I don't have the QPW & HPQPDP folders in the SWSetup folder. Does quickplay still come with DV4T's or is HP using something new? Do I need to install some other program or driver from SWSetup to get quickplay to work? Should I not even worry about it and just another player?

2.) Recovery Partition. I followed a link in another post, here at NBR, to HP's site telling me how to add quickplay from the recovery partition of the hdd. I can see the recovery partition but when I try to access it, it says it's empty. Is it possible to access it through explorer or do I have to boot from it? When I did the fresh install, I just reformated partition 1, the one with vista on it already and did nothing to the recovery partition. Is this correct?

3.) Bluetooth. After I installed bluetooth and only after the internet connection is established, the icon pops up on the system tray even though I disabled it in the startup menu and told it in the bluetooth program itself not to display the icon. Also, when the computer first boots up, it tells me bluetooth couldn't connect because of a .dll file that is missing?

4.) Scroll Slider on Touchpad. I disabled alot of things in the startup menu and now the scroll slider doesn't work. Obviously it's because of the things I disabled, but why would disabling it from startup cause it not to work? The touchpad still works fine. I followed some things in this thread and everything here. Could any of this affect the scroll slider?

5.) Recovery Manager. What happened to the recovery manager that came factory installed? Is that in the SWSetup folder?

6.) Drivers. Should I follow this thread and update all the drivers since they are all new compared to what is in my SWSetup folder?

HP/Compaq :: New DV8T- Fresh OEM Install

Mar 15, 2010

Just purchased... haven't received yet.... rather than try and clean up the existing system... I plan on installing a fresh windows 7 OEM.

Are there any problems to expect that those who have preceded me could help with?

1. Do you recommend installing windows and then updating all current drivers from HP's site or get the latest available?

I've always enjoyed running drivers without bugs more than try to eek out a little more performance and put up with bugs. This computer is going to be far faster than anything I need anyway..... so I prefer stable bugless drivers!

I currently own a ZV6000 and I learned not to trust Microsofts drivers or even some of the manufacturers drivers for that matter as the one from the HP site are the only ones proven to be bugless... is that still the case with the dv8t?

2. Previously with XP I have done a total reinstall and found much better performance than trying to clean the existing bloatware.

I've read some folks can't tell the difference.

I"m feverishly reading as much as I can to offset any mistakes I'll regret.

3. Should I try and use my existing OEM serial number than came with my computer or is that considered used already?..... just thought if I could use it, I could save the OEM serial that comes with my new purchase of windows 7 OEM so I can install later on another computer.

I"ve technically paid for two licenses.... just don't know how that will all work and I really don't want to fuss with all the bloatware, easier for me to spend the cash.

I just want to get the system totally installed and up and running with no device manager errors and all working.. then I can worry about tweaking further.

Dell :: Initial Restart When Install Fresh Vista

Nov 21, 2008

My XPSM1330 got a serious trouble with the old Vista... Unluckily, I didn't have any image backup or recovery on it.. That's why I have to install a new Vista on my laptop... I got a full OEM Vista DVD which has been installed so many times on my desktop as well as my father's laptop.. No problems !!! But when I used it for my DELL... After the initial restart after installing updates... It cannot keep on the process.. Now the screen appears in black with Vista Boot Manager Error... I think the AHCI Drive is the main reason so I downloaded the new Intel Matrix Strorage with AHCI support on DELL.com and put it in USB and chose Load Driver in the installing page in Vista ... But nothing changed...!

Dell :: No Internet Connections After BSOD And Fresh Install Of XP

Feb 15, 2010

So she downloaded a recent WinXP update and when it restarted, she got the BSOD with this description only: 0x0000007e (0xc000001d, 0x80537008, 0xbaccf3b8, 0xbaccf0b4). Attempts to reboot just let directly to the BSOD. I couldn't even safeboot... it would just freeze up on me before it even got to the WinXp logo.

I did a several google searches for the error and tried a number of different things to no avail. I decided to just do a clean install of WinXP. The format/install went fine. BUT... the internet connections are missing. I installed all the drivers in the proper order. When I go to Control Panel>Network Connections there's nothing there. No icons or anything. PLUS none of the USB ports work .....

Sony :: Clean Install With Fresh Win7

Feb 4, 2010

I have a fresh copy of win 7 ultimate (legit of course.. got it from a microsoft event).

I have seen a few threads about clean installing vaios (boy do they put a bit of crapware there...) but not sure whats best to do..

I dont think I need/want any of the free apps (are there any good ones?) so I reckon I am going to blast the harddrive (I imaged the whole lot with another backup prog)

Whats the best strategy for this? i.e. whats best for getting drivers etc?

I noticed some files in c:windowsdrivers (an exe and a inf diretory, not sure which is for which) should that contain all I need?

Will I have issues with sony system stuff?

Also what about registering it? I guess there will be no issue as far as warranty is concerned (as said, it is a proper legit win 7)

HP/Compaq :: Software For Fresh Vista Install On A Dv3

Jun 17, 2009

I just got my new dv3 and want to to reformat the machine and install Vista afresh to get rid of all the bloatware. I've burned my recovery disks using the HP Recovery Manager. I've also read through the "Clean Vista Install with no activation" thread here.

My question is this: what happens after I install a fresh copy of Vista? Do I need to download all the required HP drivers? Where can I get some of the software that comes preloaded on the machine like HP Mediasmart and Wireless Assistant etc? Does anyone have a list of all the software that comes preinstalled on the dv3? I'd like to be able to get some things installed like mediasmart (and anything else that might actually be useful and is not junk).

HP/Compaq :: NewDV7 Owner Fresh Install

Jan 29, 2009

just picked up a new DV7-1270ca and did a clean install to Vista Ultimate 64B. I noticed that a few of the apps that were on the machine are missing and can't be downloaded? Can anyone tell me where to find these apps? I did make a set of recovery disks prior to deleting the recovery partition but they don't seem to contain files that are accessible unless one does a complete recovery...which kind of defeats the whole purpose of my intentions.

I notice that i don't have the control panel for my sound anymore. Not sure if this is related but i think since i can't individually configure my speakers without this application i notice some crackling sounds in movies i play which i am assuming to be because the subwoofer is set too high?

I am also missing complete functionality of the keys that reside directly above my keyboard. The keys work, but i notice i no longer see a visual screen confimation and get the clicking sound when i access them? The mute button should also turn amber when i mute the machine but it no longer does. I did check HP support but the only file they had was HP MediaSmart SmartMenu Update which is only an update according to the Readme. It states that i must first have HP MediaSmart SmartMenu installed for the update to work but HP does not supply a download link for this utility?

There are also a few other apps that i can't remember the name of that are missing i know.

Has anyone else done a clean installation?

Dell :: IMM. Assist200GB 7k200 Hiatchi Vista Fresh Install MAJOR Iss. In I1720

Sep 21, 2007

My Inspiron 1720 is currently down....

I swapped the primary bay 120GB 5400rpm that came with the DELL for a 7k200 200GB 7200RPM Hiatchi 16mb Cache Hard drive.

No bent pins, reseated twice.....

ALL DELL diagnostics pass.... but when I try to launch Hitachi's hard drive fitness tests/diagnostics it fails to load when detecting the bays.... give me an OLD DOS COMMAND.COM error.... this software with my 7k100 works perfect on Inspiron E1705.

BIOS is seeing hard drive... as 200GB... Vista sees the hard drive....

I can even do a FULL FORMAT (not quick) through Vista's advanced command prompt install and diagnostics.....

it formats successfull...

HOWEVER!.... when Vista gets to the final phase of its install when it is @ the VERY last step... I believe its called Finalizing the install.... it just sits there with the three ... and the dots are animated... so the install is not frozen, just doesn't go anywhere.

This install on my e1705 /w 7k200 and 7k100 takes like 10 minutes TOPS....

I've talked to DELL hardware and Dell Software On Call support (first 30 days free).... I've worked in IT since the early 90's and I must be missing something here.

After trying multiple times (both automatically and manually) to install the Nvidia drivers it shows an error saying "you must install  an Intel driver first".  I realize this is the HP forum, but i've tried contacting Intel with no luck on top of trying every Intel driver that looks even remotely relevant. (most of which error while installing mentioning my computer lacks the requirements for the install).
 
I've tried updating the drivers automatically through windows on top of disable/uninstall and restart, but the same problem keeps arising.

Sony :: Boot Times For I5/i7 Z: Factory Settings, $50 Fresh Start, Clean Install, Manual Uninstall

Mar 20, 2010

Now that the new Sony Z is out, I think it would meaningful to get a sense of the boot time for this system under various scenarios.

If people could post the boot times of their Z with this information:

- Whether you're calculating the boot with all the bloatware untouched (factory settings), with the $50 Sony Fresh Start (which still has a couple unnecessary programs), a Clean Install, or a Manual Uninstall of all programs.

- And the size of your SSD or HDD. If it is an SSD, it would be nice to know if you can tell us have many SSDs are in the RAID 0 configuration as that affects the speed.

I think this would be very helpful not just for direct comparison, but as another factor to consider in whether to do a clean install, which takes more tech-savvy than some may have.

Dell :: E6400 Clean Install?

How well will the E6400 work without the dell DCP software installed. I've had the E6400 only two weeks and thinking of wiping the OS and installing Win 7 again with only the necessary drivers, without all the Dell software. The machine was using over 3.1 gigs of RAM yesterday and there was NOTHING running on the taskbar. Looked at the process list and there was no one process that was consuming my RAM, I was getting nickel and dimed by all the processes that are running. DCP seemed to be a big consumer as well as CPU time.

Dell :: Clean Install Windows 7? Or Windows Xp?

Apr 13, 2010

Has anyone clean installed Windows 7 on their new Inspiron laptops? I just bought a E1545 and it came with Windows 7. I'd like to clean install and I was wondering if it was as easy as popping in the Windows 7 DVD and waiting for it to install and then just dling the drivers online and installing.

And how about Windows XP? I know most people have gotten used to and accepted Windows 7... but has anyone installed WIndows XP on their laptop that came with Windows 7 originally? I mean a native install, not virtual...

If no one has done this yet, I am willing to create a guide if it is requested and if I succeed in doing so...
