trying to do a fresh install of xp thou a its running quite slow and getting loads of popups etc.
Any way put the XP CD and boot rom it via the bios. It begins to load all te XP files then suddenly crashes to the famous blue screen , saying something about a hardware problem, and my PC was shut down to prevent any damage.
I've just started dealing with Mac OSX for the very first time, and I have some great problems getting the integrated iSight camera on my MacBook Pro 17" to work with the Microsoft Live Messenger protocol.
All I know uses Live Messenger 9.0, and I want to be able to chat AND having webcam sessions within Mac OSX.
Is this even possible? I've tried the new Microsoft Live Messenger 8.0 BETA for Mac OSX, which was supposed to be the very first official Microsoft client for OSX supporting webcam? But for me it doesn't work at all, no webcam..
My contacts doesn't even seem to get all my messages either, so it's obviously something very fishy going on with this client.
I also tried mercury, but couldn't get the cam-thing to work, not with the stable 1.9 or RC6 og 2.0, no matter what protocol I tried to use.
I have been trying to use the Live Updater and it is saying there are no updates I have installed the Acer Updater which is saying no updates and I can see that my Laptop has lots of updates from the software and drivers website.
I think I made a mistake in purchasing my Inspiron 15 without a CD drive. This laptop came with Windows 8 (I hate it) and I would like to install Windows 7 (I love it), but not sure that I can. Forget it. I am not thinking. I just need to attach an external drive.
I just bought a new Dell Studio 1535 and encountered the following problem:
I inserted my windows xp installation cd (as the laptop came with no OS). Windows setup began running, installing a multitude of drivers and files as it should until a message, something in the likes of "starting windows" (up to this point the screen is still the dos-style setup program). After a few seconds, a MS windows blue screen appears, stating that it encountered a fatal error.
I own a dell xps 15 l502x with an i7-2630 processor,6 gb ram and a nvidia gt540m 2gb graphics card.My laptop crashes/freezes very frequently while playing games like modern warfare 3 ,max payne 3,ghost recon future soldier etc.I have to force shut down as i cannot end the process from tash manager even by using programs like killprocess.If i shut down normally with the process still running the light on the power button stays on till i hold it down and power off manually.All my drivers are up to date and i don't overclock my graphics card and run all games on optimal settings.I've read that reports like this are not uncommon with this laptop.
I admit that I messed up in trying to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit without reformatting and using a flash drive and instructions downloaded from YouTube. And yes, I have learned a great lesson from this experience. Now I have purchased from DELLÂ a Windows 7 CD along with a drivers CDÂ for me to start over with. I would like to know how to do this the right way. I have a Inspiron laptop model 17R N7110. I am hoping that this fresh install will put this laptop back like it was when it was new. Minus the bloatware of course.
I am about to re-install Windows on my friend's laptop, an Aspire 4520.
I am not super familiar with laptops, however I have noted that at the top of his desktop, there is an utility program, a toolbar that I think is called Empowering Technology. My friend uses it mainly to check his battery charge level, although there are a few other tools in this bar, like "acer eData Security Management".
The problem is, if I reinstall Windows, all programs on the Windows partition will be erased. That included this program/toolbar. And I don't know where to get back it back...like where to download a new one for installation.
I have bought acer laptop. 1. This is Extensa 6702ZNWLMi 2. Intel Pentium M processor 735A 3. DVD-Dual double layer
Now when i press the power button it start and after some processing shows the following: Linpus Linux Basic Edition v9.2 b060419c [root@ localhost /]#
Now i dont understand this command [root@ localhost /]# and after this command cursor is blinking to write some thing.
I also dont know that how to launch that window in which i can change the boot priority. In my pc that i use in home i press del after starting my computer and a window comes where i change my boot priority and then boot from cd windows xp and install it. But in this case i dont know how to install xp. and my next question is that can i play cd in DVD-Dual double layer.
I am not able to install the Wide Wireless Lan Driver64 in my Lenovo B460 laptop which is running with Win 7 64 bit ultimate version.When i installed the avialable drivers fro lenovo site,it showed No matched driver error showing.
It has occurred to me that there's an issue with either my Dell Inspiron 3520 Laptop Computer or my Windows 8.1/Windows 8 OS. Occasionally, running the computer (sometimes when it's overheating or just when unplugging the laptop), the computer just crashes, i.e. Screen goes black, power light and HDD light stays on for a about 2 seconds before powering off. No blue screen, no warning, no updates. There's was no reason for it to go off, but it did. It's frustrating because:
1.) When I'm working/playing a game/hosting a multi-player server, the computer tends to crash in the middle of it causing my work to go to waste.
2.) I believe it will damage my laptop and cause further problems in the future
I've researched a bit about this issue before and people have said that it's due to overheating, but I have proven that this is not the case for me as I have placed my PC beside a fan where it kept a steady temperature of about 50-65 Degrees Celsius and I've still faced the issue.
I have been trying to access the Dell Live Tech Support Chat for the past 3 days and have had no success. I keep getting a message saying that chat is closed or all reps are busy. Is everyone experiencing this problem?
I Just upgraded my 5672 to Windows Vista with a clean installation, installed all drivers from Acer's site. When I am using skype with bluetooth headset (Samsung WEP200) it crashes my computer to a blue screen does a memory dump and reboots. This happens every time after about 10-20 minutes of skype usage. Everything else seems to work fine for hours on end.
Secondly I still have an unknown device in device manager after installing all the drivers from Acers site, anyone know what device that could be? The hardware ID is "ACPISMCB000"
I have installed Windows 8 on a HP dv6-6096 nr which I purchased in may 2011. I did an upgrade from Windows 7 Home Premium. Every time, I hightlight control panel, the machine reverts back to the desktop. How do I fix this?
I thave updated my video drivers. I an't tell waht other devices are not usiable in Windows 8.
I figured that I can go a clean install and all should work but I don't know if I can re-install under Windows 8. Â Here is an update:The HP dvd6-6096nr used NON-STANDARD function which folks at HP, Microsoft and Microcenter have been made aware of. So the ways to get into Safe mode, Shift F8 is the easy way. For me, that doesnâ€™t work. Using Windows key +x, lets me run msconfig.Using msconfig and booting into safe mode, action center tells me that I need to install 3 drivers: (Intel Bluetooth wireless driver, HP power management and Intel wireless display). Those were installed.I rebooted the machine, Control panel still crashes.Rebooted into safe mode, action center still shows that I need to install these 3 drivers.Since Microsoft makes it nearly impossible to boot windows to update drivers, that is where I am at.Â My choice is (1) install Windows 8 (not upgrade) or forget about Windows 8. The problem is (1) will Windows 8 re-activate and if other licensed software will re-install?
There is no web page for support on Pavilion g6 2214so. How is this possible? Google can find the page.... if searching but HP displays as page cannot be found.Â Â Need drivers as the Notebook crashes when upgrading to Windows 8.1...
I just bought the new Macbook Pro 13", its really nice, run boot camp XP smoothly, everything works out great. But there is only one problem, the audio come put of my live messenger sounds really funny, it sounds like slow down my speech and low my sound.
I always use live messenger to chat with my mom, today I use boot camp XP, my mom said she cannot uderstand what I'm saying, I'm a lady, but it sounds like a 40 years old male, really slow low, funny voice....I try to use the sound recorder in the Windows Xp, it sounds perfect. It also works perfect in Mac OS... but it just doesnot work in the MSN messenger.
After I open the lid and the tablet starts getting out of sleep mode, the blue screen appears with the following error message: Â SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLES (rtwlanu.sys) Â What is causing this and how to resolve it?
I have the HP- Pavilion g7 Notebook and have not had any problems until I was getting a Blue Screen of death after an update of Skype got on my computer. I had to do a system recovery several times until I found out this is a problem apparently caused by skype, now skype wants to update again and windows7 doesn't like it at all, the machine crashes again. Last resort, I downloaded an older verson of skype which works fine but in the long run doesn't solve the problem.Â If there is a fix what is it, I have not gotten any suggestions from skype,Â to get this resolved. The only thing I hear itÂ might be related to some driver that has not been updated.Â What can I do?
