Update From Vista Has Errors

I have updated to windows 7 from vista. I now have problems where the cpu turns itself off in the middle of working. I have had the cpu checked for electronic problems and was told that the installation to windows 7 did not clear the harddrive of the vista program. It appears there is bits of both programs trying to vie for usage. I was informed the only way to correct the problem is to totally reformat the harddrive (as indicated when upgrading from xp) and reinstalling.

As the instructions on the windows 7 home premium please spread the word of this major 'glitch' in the installation of windows 7 to a vista environment. I have a hard time keeping the cpu on as it has a tendency to shut down from 30 seconds from turn on to 7 minutes and getting shorter. It is a major problem.

Keep Getting Errors To Update Microsoft Office Products

I have my windows update turned on to automatically download and inform me when updates are available. I then pick the updates i want installed. It seems that everytime i have an update for my microsoft office products i get an error code example 646 and then i have to download the update and manually install. Sometimes this doesn't work. I also am now being told i need to install office 2007 sp2 when i download it and attempt to install it i am told that it is already installed. My copies of office and windows 7 are completely legitimate and bought at the best buy. I had this problem also with vista. I don't understand what is going on.

Slow Loading Of Windows Vista After Update

Last time, i did not update my vista because of this problem. However, because of the need of installing some softwares i need to use, i need to update my vista. Right after updating, the startup is real slow. My startup definition here is not after the welcome screen. It's before the welcome screen where you have a windows logo black screen and a loading bar at the bottom. I hope you understand what i meant.

I've of course search around before i post this. A lot of people refereed startup as programs loading etc. But my startup here is during the loading of windows. (Maybe there's another term which i do not know, please do tell me). It's very very very very very slow after i've updated.
The loading icon goes around like 20 over times before the welcome screen comes in.

What is happening? Frustrated that windows give me such a problem. Original copy some more. Maybe next time i shall opt for pirated disc. As for me, a genuine user, are not getting what we suppose to get.

Size Errors

I was going to leave teh computer for a while so i set it to sleep to conserve energy. When i returned to teh computer, i found that (when i logged back on), the size of things had seemed to change. (The icons on screen and many of the windows i opened, including aol, were much bigger). I went onto the control panel, on appearance and personalization, and tried to set teh screen size back to small(default), however, the computer seemed to think that it was already on small. I managed to get the icons back to small and some programs are normal, but other are huge windows. Can anyone help me get the size back to normal please?

Backup Errors - 0x8007045d

Backup fails error 0x8007045d & 0x807012d chkdsk/r fails with invalid parameter. I am trying to backup my laptop to an external hard drive with which i have had no problem until now. I am using windows 7 and have a 64bit machine, so far i have reset my back-up settings i have formatted my external drive, i have performed a disk check using the "tools" in properties as every time i try run "cmd" chkdsk/g (as in " g drive") it says invalid parameter as well as trying a registry fix. My device manager says my external drive is working fine and after each failed back-up there are files written to that drive, what now?

Errors With 8gb Of Memory

So i have had windows 7 now for several months and immediately after the release date i have been reviving problems with my computer crashing saying system memory is to low. I am not sure which update has caused this and there are several since then.

It occurs usually when playing gta iv which is a high memory task, but also occurs when watching a simple dvd keep in mind i have 8g of memory and have already tried turning page file system off. In the past that's how i ran vista 64 premium with zero problems.

I ran memory test in bios yesterday and all is well, curious to know if this is an update that microsoft has released which is now crashing my computer, or furthermore a graphics card update error. I went on an update frenzy right about the time of the release date. Learned my lesson there one update at a time and check for errors. I am considering at this point removing all updates. I am up for any suggestion's. Except clean install because that at this point is not an option.

I will say i was in love with windows 7 for almost a year during beta testing, zero errors during my whole testing period, and now have become more frustrated than ever.

Shutdown Errors & Support

This seems to be a recurring theme on all the win 7 forums, the machine won't shut down properly. Select shut down, screens goes to the "shutting down" view, but the circle icon freezes after a few seconds and the machine hangs.

When i reboot, windows does not report a failure, it just boots normally and works fine, but come shut down, problems again.

This is happening everytime i use the machine, though sometimes i get the odd bsod thrown in at shut down as well, just for good measure.

I have used the internal checking within win 7 to try to find the issue, but nothing works, i don't want to have to re-install win 7 ultimate, a couple of weeks after installing it, but that is looking like the only option and that is not guaranteed to fix the issue.

I have tried to contact microsoft through their online "help & support" forum, but they say my version of win 7 ultimate is not activated (yes it is), then when i enter my product code, it says because i am not registered, i have to pay £45 for 1 hour of support.

Me pay them to have them fix a problem with their software! I thought vista was bad, this is just vista 1. 5 with bugs, should l have stuck to vista.

Anybody got any ideas on what is causing this, as lots of people are seeing this issue, yet no support answers seem to give a resolution

System specs are

Win 7 ultimate
Quad core processer
6gb of ram
2 x 512mb nvidia graphic cards working in sli mode
2 x 1tb sata hdd
28" hd monitor

Hp Deskjet 9800 Printer Errors

Error messages-some postscript specific settings(interpolation, calibration, encoding) will be ignored since you are printing to a non post script printer. -Result print of 1/2 inch of 4 by 6 print, print about 25% of specified size, no print etc.

On hp932 and hp deskjet 9800. Error message, incompatible ink cartridges- even though using original hp60 cartridges supplied with printer at purchase and they worked for maybe 40 pages printing text only. Hp9800 and hp932 printers, hp scanjet 4470 all worked perfectly well on old windows me- i know they're old, but are there no fixes for these issues for a computer user without great technical knowledge. Or is the cure the dumpster for all my old peripherals?

Hp Photosmart C4280 Device Failed With Errors

Local printing to the hp photosmart c4280 all-in-one device fails with errors in the error printing from the macbook pro to the same printer shared from the windows 7 machine works fine.

The errors are:

The print spooler failed to load a plug-in module c:windowssystem32spooldriversx643unidrvui.dll, error code 0xc1. See the event user data for context information.

The document microsoft word - references.doc, owned by michael, failed to print on printer hp photosmart c4200 series. Try to print the document again, or restart the print spooler.

Data type: nt emf 1. 008. Size of the spool file in bytes: 65536. Number of bytes printed: 0. Total number of pages in the document: 1. Number of pages printed: 0. Client computer: \rivendell. Win32 error code returned by the print processor: 2147500037. Unspecified error

Restarting the print spooler does not fix the issue. Installing the latest software and patches also does nothing. Setting permissions to full control for everyone on the unidrvui.dll also has no effect. Unchecking "enable bidirectional support" on the ports tab of the printer properties doesn't work either. Anyone have any other suggestions?

Blue Screen - Bccode Errors Start With 3b, 24, 11, 1

I have a computer that's been running vista completely fine for two years. I bought a new sata hard drive and installed windows 7 on it, removing the hard drive that had vista on it. With 7, i'm getting bluescreen errors two or three times a day, each one with a different bccode and error report. Windows and my own knowledge led me to believe it was a ram issue, so i did some troubleshooting (i've had ram go bad before) with swapping out sticks and running memory tests, with no difference detected. I was getting bluescreens regardless of which memory stick i used.

I've since put back in the drive with vista and taken out the drive with 7 and all of my hardware works fine. I have no idea what's causing 7 to crash constantly on this system. Does the cmos need to be cleared? Is there some memory somewhere that's corrupting everything? Not to mention when i install 7 it gets me all the updated drivers. I've troubleshot a computer before, but i'm totally lost with this one. Some bccode errors start with: 3b, 24, 11, and 1. Those are the ones i can remember right now.

Facebook Email Login Problem / Errors

I have had a problem logging in to facebook and my e-mail, i found a way to get into my mail. Once i was able to do that i was able to contact them. They sent a request for a screenshot of the login page and what it said and i did that, however it will not go through with the e-mail address they used when they sent the request. I was able to attach their e-mail to my to my screenshot.

I did that because my screenshot would not attach to their e-mail. So i set up my final e-mail to them and it will not go through. The e-mail page that came up is microsoft, i filled everything out and hit send and it came back saying something about my server not being microsoft and it didn't go through! If i can use yahoo to send e-mail and my service provider is not yahoo why does it go through it and not microsoft?

Blue Screen Errors 0x00000019, 0x0000003b

I recently had a computer shop restore my laptop to factory settings and take an image of my documents and reload back onto the computer to remove a virus the laptop had, after i got my laptop back the virus was successfully removed however it has suffered a bsod numerous times over the past few days since i got it back which has never happened before, i took it back to the shop who found nothing wrong with it.

The bug-checks were (in this order of happening):

0x00000019, 0x0000003b, 0x00000019, 0x00000024, 0x0000000a, 0x00000019

Dell 720 Printer Printing Errors

Windows and dell say that windows 7 (32bit)is not compatible with 720 printer but, on another forum, people say that they have developed a simple workaround. Many people have used this and reply it works great. The procedure is:- 1. Download driver r149368 - i have done this. 2. Open up r149368, however when i go to c:program files/dell720/drivers/ and open it i find nothing resembling r1493678 but many files with strange endings (forgotten word that should be here) such as dlbcaglk. Ou_ , dlbccdrv. Cat, dlbcjswx. Ex_and so on and nothing that calls itself setup.exe that one is supposed (step 3. ) To set to defaults.

Trouble shooting the printer shows nothing wrong, no compatibility problems etc. , But eventually i get to error 0x00000006 which i can find no reference to. If i try to print i get the message "the handle is invalid" with no error number. If i try to sign in to the main home page for windows help there is a drop down list for "state/region" - nothing for canada or ontario.

Xp To Vista To 7 Or Xp To 7?

My hard drive just crashed. Dell is sending me a new one. When i reinstall my os i can either use the xp or vista cd's. I bought a vista laptop with an xp downgrade.system meets specs for windows 7. Would like to switch to 7. Is my best strategy to install vista and then buy a windows 7 upgrade and install it? I have all the drivers and other items that were on my laptop on reinstall disks. Think that i should put them back into its native environment and then upgrade to 7. Make sense? Also, i think the 7 upgrade is cheaper than the outright program.

Upgrade From Vista

I just ran the windows 7 upgrade advisor beta and it says this : you can do an in-place upgrade to the 32 bit windows 7 home premium or ultimate. If you choose to upgrade to a different edition you will need to preform a clean installation. Does this mean i could not do a in-place install to windows 7 professional 32-bit ? And why cant i ? Is there anyway i can? I would like to find a way since my school is part of the msdnaa and windows 7 professional is available for free to me as a student. Please don't be to technical in any replies, i am only a little above an average computer user.

Back To Vista

I installed win 7 upgrade over windows vista. But unfortunately not very well. All programs are gone, but i still have the "windows. Old" folder and now i want to get back to vista. I've found the following instruction: , but when i type in the command "move /y. " After pressing the enter button, it says "access is denied" and i do not know why.

How can i get full access for it? The net admin is active, but that shouldn't influence the commands because i start the "repair-program" from the dvd.

Downgrade To Vista

I have asked my question about classics mode in the other list. Since then i  have come to realize there will be no speedy fix for my issue. It is becoming  fairly obvious to me that there was not a lot of input from end users on the functionality of windows 7 prior to its launch. So frankly since vista does work for what i love to do in my leisure time please supply me with a link to downgrade to vista. I will say if i have to pay for vista, all of my computers in the future will not be running a microsoft operating system. (You don't even want to hear what happened to the third replacement xbox while it was still covered under warranty).

Upgrading From Vista To 7 Then 7 Again

I received a discounted copy of windows 7 32-bit through my university. I over-installed it over my existing copy of vista home premium 32-bit. This did not require a key to activate, which is nice as the copy i received does not come with a product key!  But now i've purchased a ram and a hdd upgrade, and am going to upgrade to windows 7 64-bit. Again, it does not come with a product key, so, will my product key for vista home premium 32-bit (came with laptop) work for upgrading to windows 7 64-bit?

Upgrade From Vista Getting Stuck At 87%

Windows 7 home premium (x32) upgrade from vista hp (x32) is consistently getting stuck at 87% in the "gathering files, settings, and programs" stage. The compatibility tool indicates no conflicts. I've uninstalled virus protection, tv tonic, itunes, and logitech quickcam (as previously indicated by the compatibility tester. ) It does say i should download an updated realtek rtl8187 wireless driver to install *after* win 7 is installed.

I've left it running up to 14 hours, stops at the same place (87%) every time. (Though the file count is different everytime, so the actual absolute number varies. (e.g. This time it's 503490 of 592438. ) C:windowssetupact. Log hasn't been written to since the install first began, and indicates no errors. Setuperr. Log is empty. Any ideas?

How To Use Sticky Notes From Vista ?

While i think the sticky notes in windows 7 are 'cute', they're not nearly as functional as the sticky notes in vista were. For instance, i have over 1800 sticky notes on my vista machine that i keep because they are auto time and date stamped. I write directly onto the notes using my tablet, and keep them instead of keeping a pad and pen at my desk. Now, however, i open sticky notes and 1) nothing is date stamped and 2) i can't keep 1800 notes on my desktop visible at all times.

Is there some way to install the "old" sticky notes (the one where you could even record a verbal note or write on it with a pen) from windows vista onto windows 7?
