Ajodabile:well i dont know ao to over emphasize this, not every system is vista compatible, vista is a different os its not an upgrade to xp, no its an os on its own, every new os in the market comes with a upgraded hardware requirement.when Win2000 and win 98 were the latest os the average ram required was 128mb for u to enjoy ur pc xperience.xp made it 512.for u to have a an hitch free pc xperience now vista is saying 1gb.look technology is moving if u decide to stay in the past no problem but dont blame vista.its working for me very well now bcus i have everything its needs to work, if u dont then wait till u have the hardware to support vista, dont rush. even i use 1gb ram on xp not to talk of vista, and for the guy that loaded vista on a celeron /512 pc, i dont know what to say to u, i wont even advise anybody to use celeron for anything, not even xp, why wont your system be slow, ignore all the vista capable stickers u see in laptop all those are just commercial hype, because in the technical sense even a 128ram pc would support vista but dont try this at home

|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 9:31pm On Jun 25, 2007|
am currently doing a research on the phone internet connection would get back to u later today or maybe tomoro, about the office, must if not all of the office programs that come shipped with a pc are trial application that u are expected to evaluate and then buy, they usually give u a 60 days trial time, i don't know if yours falls into that category but i would look into it

bigrovar, the vista master, come and see ooo!! my vista is telling me my product key is invalid for activation and it has finally shut me out of my own pc. all i have access to is 1 internet explorer window from where i sign in to messenger. every other function (start menu, taskbar, etc) is invisible. booting with safe mode limits me to many things. what am i supposed to do? i have tried other keys as well all to no avail. i'm beginning to think this vista sucks. and to think it came pre-installed with my laptop. my day has just been exhausted for nothing.

|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by samboribo(m): 9:22pm On Jun 27, 2007|
ok! so, all of my files were automatically saved to a "windows.old" folder in the HDD and nothing was lost after all. but then, i tried the link you gave me and it gives me an error message after downloading. how do i know if my system is a 64-bit?
|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 6:34am On Jun 28, 2007|
just try to update ur system then it would naturaly download the uodate and other update that your system needs, to check if your system is a 64bit, go to my computer and click on system properties on the top of the screen u would see everything about the system including whether its 64/32

I guess you did not read my last reply on this topic with my latest problem with the removable disk and Vista.
Don't know why I cannot open or save anything on my USB stick from my laptop.
Do you know what I am doing wrong or overlooking?

|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by True Talk: 10:27am On Jul 04, 2007|
U r doing great with all your assistance on this Vista issues.
I'll like to know, if I get a new Sony Viao is it meant to come with some cds (i.e recovery cd et al)
Secondly, I normally browse with my phone connection (i.e gprs), but with this vista thingy, I cant even install my P990i software on the thing let alone connect to browse.
Abeg try help your guy!
Wont mind giving you a call too, but it seems your number isn't going for now.
|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 3:26pm On Jul 04, 2007|
i dont really get the 1st part of ur post, however concerning the second part u can download the new p990i software that support vista here http://www.sonyericsson.com/downloads/Sony%20Ericsson%20PC%20Suite%20for%20SmartPhones%201.3.19.exe
|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 3:31pm On Jul 04, 2007|
ok i get it now u wont to know if the sony vaio u intend on buying would come with recovery cds, well from experience most dont come with recovery disk, ur recovery file is always embedded in a hidden harddrive partition, and u would then be able to create your recovery disk using the vaio recovery disk utility, but it all depends of ao u buy
|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by chichimma(f): 2:17am On Jul 06, 2007|
I am not sure of the name of the USB but on the stick is written: USB Flash Disk.
I don't think that is very helpful to you
Guess I will buy another one because I think as you mentioned it is corrupted with windows files and not vista .
Because my laptop does not even recognize it !
Thanks for your reply.
|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 4:55am On Jul 06, 2007|
why dont u get A new usb drive and get back to me,

|Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by bigrovar(m): 6:27pm On Jul 31, 2007|
squee:what i just want to ask you is - did u buy the word 2007 your self or did it come preinstalled on your system when u got it? , if it came pre-installed then it is most likely a trial version in which case your trial time was up.if not and you purchased it and were given an original key then i will look into the matter for u but first u have to let me know case it is
