    Driver problem won't allow me to upgrade to 7?

    Is there any slipstreaming capability with this new OS I wonder. That would probably work but you would have to adopt an old XP or vista slipstreaming technique. I don't feel qualified to try to tell you how but maybe someone with a proven technique will see this or maybe you can google up...

    Driver problem won't allow me to upgrade to 7?

    The new OS is deciding for whatever reason that your driver will not play nice with W7. Seeing how it is working now i'm sure it's frustrating but, there is no way in my knowledge to override this. Others may have an idea? If you do turn to a clean install (my recommendation )be sure to copy...

    What OS/version of windows media player are you running? Windows media player should have a drop down at the top of the list pane (play list thing) where you can select burn options.

    Just remember I can't confirm that it works, I'm pretty sure I can find you articles that read windows 7 is free forever doesn't mean MS gonna send one in the mail. The good news is that all you can lose if it fails is the Windows 7 installation that you had to nuke anyway.

    It has been rumored and written in articles that you can upgrade in place from RC to the final version (GA).I haven't done it so I can not confirm it. However... A: You will still need a qualifying OS to use upgrade media (Vista, Xp what have you) which is cheaper. B: You will find that most...

    Windows 7 Windows 7 desktop screenshot

    Finally got it all worked out well enough to post it here. Notice the clear desktop I love my libraries and jump lists! Positioning the superbar on the right took a little getting used to as well but it really is more intuitive once you use autohide to keep your horizontal space clear when...

    USB: Unknown Device

    Are the drivers you installed intended for Vista? If they are intended for Xp chances are they won't work. Some drivers that are for Vista are still ports of Xp drivers these usually won't work either. If you can find Vista drivers for your device try to uninstall the drivers currently in device...

    Processor Problem

    are you monitoring your temps at all? I have the identical processor and that rating is definitely low mine receives a 4.6. I remember my processor is very bad for losing clock cycles when it get's too hot. You could try to disable Intel Speed Step technology in BIOS but don't do it unless your...

    how to uncache/release RAM

    You could try to disable superfetch that would leave some RAM free,but the real answer is a small RAM upgrade even another gig would make a world of difference, board supporting of course.

    upgrading to rtm (ultimate) which one to buy

    in order to use upgrade media you need a qualifying OS ---Xp or Vista. The consensus is that this qualifying OS need not be activated just present, but in recent months there has been some discord on this but nothing confirmed. As far as upgrading in place from RC to RTM it turns out that it is...

    SDHC Windows 7 problems

    Go to the PC manufacturers website and check fora Vista driver for that card reader. If Xp drivers are all that are available the device will probably not work right but you can try them in compatibility mode. Vista drivers should work properly when installed in compatibility mode if they don't...

    Windows just don't work

    And this only occurs in a single user profile? If yes the easiest fix is to just create a new profile and migrate over to that one.Lots of things can corrupt a user profile such as program installations that go wrong or even a virus.

    Microsoft and Activation

    Can't argue thats for sure. I've been waiting for the other shoe to drop on this for a while now since I can't see MS letting this go on without a reason. After several months of pondering I've come up with this: Microsoft looks at this low security period as just another beta test but this one...
