If you get this message, then you are very lucky to be among those saving and accumulating cash for themselves in 2009. Money you would also use to have a wonderful time this festive season, is being wasted away in the hands of greedy cyber café owners and internet service providers that charge you a fortune just to browse the internet. Come to think of it, if you are a regular cyber café visitor like I was, spending a minimum of two hours daily for seven days, then I would advice you to sit down, take a pen, and make a simple calculation of your monthly expenses in the café, surely you will be alarmed at the result. Same with you who is using the private or home internet connection because we are all victims of the same exploit. But that ends today! because a new revolution has come to stay in Nigeria "TOTAL FREE BROWSING". It's a pity many people still don't believe that free browsing exist in Nigeria, but I can tell you that this message you are reading is sent to you using my laptop, configured with the free browsing softwares and settings. No regrets for the money spent in cafes and with home service providers because you won't be spending a dime anymore to browse the internet. Presently I have configured over 20 laptops and phones to browse for free and the beneficiaries still see me on the road and shower big smiles of "thank you" on me. To be among the big smilers, call today to order for a package of the connection settings to configure your laptop or desktop to use the free browsing for life. Order before Jan. 10th and get the configuration settings to browse free with your phone free of charge.

1. A step-by-step guide on how to create and verify a paypal account from Nigeria,

if you want to reinstall -

get a vista cd from pc village. install ensiuring that you use the version that came with your system - eg if home premium, you must install home premium. after you finish installing, activate with the key , which will be under your laptop. ie the activation code is on the windows sticker under your laptop. that ought to work.

you can also try the info on these links:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/289022
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314081

based on these, you may be able to resolve the issue if you edit your boot.ini file. If you re going to do this , MAKE SURE AN EXPERT DOES IT.

-download VISTA BOOT PRO 3.0 (google it) but u need to install microsoft .NET 2.0 framework first (again google it)
-open vistaboot pro and click the system bootloader tab.
-check/mark the windows vista bootloader and the all drives radio button and click on the install bootloader button
-at this point windows vista bootloader is installed and you will only be able to boot into vista.
-still on vistaboot pro,click the diagonistics menu tab and then choose run diagonistics from the menu
-this will scan ur computer and then automatically fill the XP version
-click on the "Manage OS Entries" tab and then click in the textbox for Rename OS Entry, and name it something useful like "Windows XP"
-if windows xp is not among the OS hilighted, click on the add new os entry enter "Windows XP" as the name choose windows legacy and the drive u installed the xp on
-Click the Apply Updates button and then reboot your computer… you should see your shiny new boot manager with both operating systems in the list
-If you get an error saying "unable to find ntldr" when trying to boot XP, you'll need to do the following:
-Find the hidden files ntldr and ntdetect.com in the root of your Vista drive and copy them to the root of
your xp drive
-If you can't find the files there, you can find them in the \i386\ folder on your XP install cd

thats it. i followed this step and i now have a dual boot laptop vista and xp runnig side by side
Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by oyb(m): 3:16pm On Jan 08, 2009
two problems

1)vista boot pro is no longer freeware
2)he cant boot into vista - vista boot pro is for tweaking boot settings from within vista, not xp( er. . i think)
Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by adewasco2k(m): 3:34pm On Jan 08, 2009
thanks for the info
i think you should just advice me on how i am going to delete the partition of the vista so i will be using xp(though i have not goten the drivers for xp yet) compaq presario c555nr

why would anyone want to format vista for xp, i almost did but thank God i was sceptical, now am enjoying VISTA even with starcomms dial up.xp is too dull, talk about HONDA98 MODEL TO HONDA2009.
Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by adewasco2k(m): 1:20pm On Jan 09, 2009
guys i think i should give the details of the proble.
(1) if i put on the system it will ask me to choose whick operating system i want to boot
the options which are (I) windows xp and (II) windows xp
mean while i have a partion for winxp and the other for win vista.
(2)if i choose the first option which is winxp my system will boot with xp
(3) if the choose the second option which is still win xp it will tell me a file (windowsroot>\system32\hal.dll) is missing or corupt.

i,m using HP pavillion dv5t with vista, but i'm unable to load nero software on it.i wanted to change it to window XP but it is not loading. plz can i do because i cant do without nero
Re: Post Your Vista Problems Here by hancock(m): 9:50am On Jan 10, 2009
Goto nero website and see if they have any patch 4 ur version on vista. im sure d latest nero shld be able to run on vista without qualms. When u power on ur system quickly press d trigger keys that will take u to BIOS settings. Go through the settings and change d SATA drive settings usualy from AHCI mode to IDE mode or from ENABLE to DISABLE. press f10 to change settings and exit. U shld be able to load xp now.

I use vista home premium. Blue Screen keeps popping up every hour or so when i'm online. I use izap genie modem. Most prominent description of the error is IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_EQUAL TO. Something like that. I downloaded a memory optimizer and it didn't cause happen again till i try to hibernate. I'm thinking formatting it again. Did it once so i'm suspecting it as the source. What are your suggestions on getting this inconvenience over with. Btw, system config is 200gb/2gb/1.86ghz duo
