Fresh Windows Installation but not games
listed. I've turned off some Win 7 services for security and I'm wondering if there is a
specific service which is required to run games.
What's wrong... Please write below.
I'm buying a new system, so I will have to make a fresh install of windows. I spent many hours customizing windows and editing settings. I was wondering if it would be possible to save those preferences and restore it to my new Windows 7 installation ?
For example, I made a custom theme for windows 7, I know I can save and export it, then import it on the new Windows 7 installation. But what about other settings ? Like everything in the control panel
I have windows 7 prof upgrade key. I just installed windows 7 pro on my laptop & tried to activate it with this upgrade key. But when I use this key, it shows that this key is for upgrade not for the fresh installation.
How can I use this key to activate my Windows 7 pro.
I formatted my drive and installed a fresh new windows 7 on it. Worked fine installing, no errors. Now whenever I go to start a windows program such as, computer, documents, control panel and everything else on the right hand side when you click the start menu. When I click one of them it just pops up "windows has stopped responding"
I used to have a Windows computer running XP before I switched to Mac. I love my Macbook and all, but I miss playing all my old Windows games. These games include Windows 95/98 games, Windows XP games, and DOS games.
I've decided I want to get a Windows computer so I can play all those games. Before I start building my computer, I want to know what Windows OS to get.
Here are some of the games I have that I want to play:
The Sims 2
Sid Meier's Pirates (XP)
Half Life 2
And a lot more (including modern) games.
I want an OS that can play modern games in high resolution (I'll get a good graphics card/CPU) and that is compatible with old games. These all worked fine on my old XP, and I will get that again if I have to, but last time I tried XP it seemed a bit dated compared to Windows 7.
What operating system do you recommend I get that can play old and modern games?
So I installed windows 8 on my HP DV6t-7000 and it regularly gave me BSOD until eventually it stopped booting all together.
I have tried doing a fresh install of both Windows 8 and Windows 7 but both provide me with the error that "no drives were found. click load driver to provide a mass storage for installation"
I have run the computer through partition wizard and formatted the hard drive to NTSC but the installation disks still wont recognize the drive, nor will Ubuntu for that matter.
When I boot my laptop (acer aspire 4745), after the start-up screen, the screen goes blank with a cursor blinking on the top left corner.
What I have tried:
1. Re-installed Windows 7 successfully
2. Run the System repair tool using the installation CD
I am not sure what next to do. The laptop detects the hard-drive, as I am able to perform a fresh installation (I can even connect to wi-fi during the installation).
