    SOLVED XP Mode won't start

    Are all of your chipset drivers installed? I managed to set everything up except for those and wasnt able to get XP mode to work until I installed the chipset drivers. Perhaps XP mode got corrupted while you were downloading the installer. Its happened to me before with large files, even on...

    need walktrough.(Buying laptop and W7)

    Correct. However the only thing that will be installed is Windows 7 itself. Usually any new computer comes with trial software, utility software, etc. None of that will be installed after a clean install to 64 bit.

    Boot up

    I would reinstall. If you have all of your data from your previous Windows (XP or Vista) then make sure to format the drive. There should be an option to do so after booting from the Windows 7 disc.

    windows 7 freezes

    can you post the error codes? or a screenshot of event veiwer? There is a website where you can lookup the solution with the event ID and source http://www.eventid.net/ I have never heard of this error but that website is a good place to start

    need walktrough.(Buying laptop and W7)

    The upgrade disk is for people who already have Windows XP or Windows Vista. You are basically getting a discount for being a repeat customer. It has no bearing on how you can actually install the operating system.

    Intermittent Network/Internet Connectivity

    Perhaps it is the driver. Did you manually install the driver or was it detected by Windows 7 after you installed? Go to the device manufacturers website and download the lastest driver.

    Can not open Outlook as admin, can open Outlook as other user

    Windows 7 was designed to as light as possible. Many programs, including Outlook Express, are no longer included as in previous version of Windows. Very few people use Outlook Express anymore anyways. Most people are using Windows Live or Microsoft Office.

    Can not open Outlook as admin, can open Outlook as other user

    Lets run through the process you took to install Windows 7 and your programs. Im assuming you bought a new hard drive (or had one) to install Seven on. Windows installed without any errors? If not, what were the errors? You say you are using Outlook 2003 as in Microsoft Office 2003? This...

    SOLVED XP mode and Hardware Virtualization Issues

    I think XP mode is 32 bit regardless of 64 or 32 bit host. I had not been able to play with the XP mode this past weekend because I went out of town. I will let you know for sure tonight.

    Can not open Outlook as admin, can open Outlook as other user

    Hmm.... When you first installed Microsoft Office and opened outlook were you able to open Outlook and setup your account? Perhaps you need to rebuild.

    You shouldnt need to open outlook to import the original outlook.ost (the *.pst extension is for archive files, confirm which ext. it is) Slave your XP Drive. Turn off UAC in Control Panel - User accounts. Open explorer and click on the Organize button in the top left corner. Folder and Search...

    Can not open Outlook as admin, can open Outlook as other user

    Try uninstalling and reinstalling Outlook. Im assuming that you were able to open it at one point and you tried to setup your email for use with it. Its possible that something didnt get configured properly. Also did you upgrade from vista or do a fresh install?

    I have run into the problem before while using an older wireless card where the card drivers installed correctly but the card didnt work. This was caused by using a driver for XP (I was using Vista at the time) Make sure that the driver is specifically for windows Vista or 7. They are built...

    SOLVED XP mode and Hardware Virtualization Issues

    Chipset Drivers worked! I had to find the original driver cd that came with my motherboard. After about 4 restarts I got all the drivers installed and XP mode works. Thank you
