If an uninstaller is asking for a reboot it is mostly just to cleanup stuff that could potentially still be in use by the system. To prevent garbage it offers to reboot and will delete the files on either shutdown or the next reboot. If GeekUninstaller offers to remove the files too, then there won't be any harm the uninstaller may cause. It is by ...

Final fix was to go into Control Panel, open the "DW LAN Card Utility" applet. Uncheck “Let this tool manage your wireless networks” Suddenly the Wireless Zero Configuration service started and network connectivity returned.

As far as I can see, this command prompt window is already full screen, that's just how large your VM screen is. To make it bigger, you can install VirtualBox guest addition(on the VM) so that the VM screen scales to the size of the VirtualBox window. You should find the "install guest addition" item by searching the VirtualBox Menu. I've never used ...

It is very unlikely that you would have caused such damage. If you have, I would expect other USB devices to fail to work as well so why not try some other devices. It could be coincidence that the drive has chosen this time to fail. They do fail fairly regularly in my experience. You can get fairly cheap adapters designed to copy drives that allow raw ...

Judging by this: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/products/system-requirements it looks like you might squeak by - the graphics will be a problem. 80Gb hard drive is also going to cause problems. Windows 7 is big - the 16Gb minimum quoted is not really fair. It uses so much more than that.

The quick answer is "No". Despite the ability to select Windows XP from the Drivers and Software site, the Play Memories page indicates Vista is the oldest OS supported. There is no legacy support that I could find, so you may want to contact Sony Support to see if you can get it in a previous version. There is activity related to this in the Sony ...

We found an answer. After all the hours of digging, it is almost embarrassing. The solution? When prompted for an activation key, use a DIFFERENT Dell OEM activation key. That is it. Dig around on some old PC, find the key, use it. Worked for us for two or three migrations of this kind. Once virtualized, we have moved the vm around, ESX to workstation ...

You want to login as System user to run command with the priviledges of this special user. You can't log in but it's possible to run programs with this user priviledges. One solution [but only for 64 bit OS] is RunAsSystem

Yes it is but it is hard to explain. Well technically your logged into the system account when your not logged into your account. Change Sethc to any other name then copy cmd.exe and name the copy sethc then on login press shift 5 times. it opens CMD.EXE. then type in explorer.exe then you are in the system account!

Search Google for "Mini Windows XP" and make a bootable. Otherwise: Your machine is updated enough to properly run Windows 7, which is fantastic. The problem lies with your hardware in the machine. Windows XP is no longer a supported OS, this means that hardware is not being built to allow Windows XP to run on it, only newer and more resource heavy OS's, ...

I'd like to suggest two different avenues of approach to your problem of running XP apps...I think that dual boot can be problematic and generally try to stay away from this type of situation. There is XP mode available for Windows 7 that allows you to run XP apps on Win 7 by basically running a MS virtual machine with XP. XP mode software is M$ supported ...

with my faulty video card I sometimes get random artifacts. Changing the screen resolution then changing it back seems to clear it.

I occasionally get screen artifacts like this in Windows 8.1: that hover above anything, including the Start screen and above the Snipping tool preview. (Rectangular Snip is a menu from the Snipping Tool, now hovering over Outlook.) I locked my computer and unlocked it, which removed the artifact.

I came here though a google query "displayport sound gone", and wanted to leave a solution that worked for me. After running a driver update, for some reason the playback device was disabled under the device manager. Simply re-enabling it fixed my problem.

Windows XP most likely requires you to partition the drive using a Master Boot Record rather than the Mac-default GUID Partition Table BEFORE you start the installation; you can do this by booting from a MacOS X install DVD, going to Utilities > Disk Utility, choosing your disk, and going to the Partition tab, under which the Advanced button will give you ...

That looks like a mistake in some other script / batch command where a literal %PATH% was appended to the PATH instead of the contents of the PATH environment variable. This would have happened if the PATH wasn’t already set when the script set the PATH environment variable. If an environment variable isn’t actually set, %PATH% expands to a literal %PATH%. ...

Setting an app's priority will not calm it down but only change its position in line - it will still take all remaining CPU cycles. You MIGHT be able to accomplish a different task that would be otherwise preempted. But I don't consider that a solution so much as a prayer. Process Explorer will suspend a CPU hungry app - but is itself a CPU hungry app. ...

If I'm following you correctly, you want to perform an in-place upgrade of XP to Windows 8.1. This is not supported. From Microsoft: To upgrade to Windows 8.1 from Windows Vista or Windows XP, you'll need to install it from a Windows 8.1 DVD and perform a clean installation. This means you won't be able to keep any files, settings, or programs when you ...

The monitor will have either an input jack (green surround) for the speakers [old style] or it will be carried over HDMI [new style]. If you're lucky it will still have the old style connector, as I'm very doubtful a 5200 would have HDMI

To answer your first question, any imaging software that's made nowadays allows you to image a logical partition or an entire hard drive (raw, forensic, call it what you will). I personally like O&O Diskimage. From there, you boot from your imaging software's ISO/USB stick and restore the image, the MBR will be transferred. MBRWizard 3.0.73 Directly ...

In the Virtual Machine Settings of the guest that is blank, under Hardware, Display, try turning off Accelerate 3D graphics. When I have the box on, under Linux Mint 16 (ubuntu), the guest will be black on every screen except the main screen--unless I turn off the 3D acceleration as noted above.

I think this solution should work for your XP too, as I used for my ubuntu VM. 1.Search for an iso image with name ubuntu.iso in your host system. 2.Open your VM's setting and add a CD drive browsing to the path where the iso image is present. 3.Then start your VM , you will find the the VM tools is mounted. Just then follow the steps for VM tools ...

I know it's an old thread but I just found the answer. On my system (Dell) there are several disks, one of them has remnants of the old Windows installation and another one has current working Win installation.

I wound up downloading MPC-HC, and changing the renderer to VMR9, or any DXVA renderer, in Playback > Options. Then I could play a video and use ctrl+j to see the refresh rate: Ultimately saw that the system was practically non-interactive when using the GPU, and I assume there's something wrong with the old hardware/bootcamp/depreciated OS situation.

EDIT: Answer by Frederik Long from TechNet Forums The problem is linked to a recursive junction point resulting form upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows XP.

This is probably related to the NTFS permissions on the old drive (files) still reflecting the old system.

With XP it's not possible because of the way Windows is built. Windows stores the user's settings (HKCU in the Registry) to a file called ntuser.dat. Whenever an user logs in, this file is locked because it gets modified, and will be unlocked only when user logs out. Multiple concurrent logins for the same user leads to "last writer wins" problem. Apparently ...

The license of Terminal Services (Remote Desktop Services) is not aimed to enable multiple accounts on Windows Desktop versions. It is not legal.

I found a (somewhat hackish) method, which consists of the following steps: Enable Advanced Sharing in XP. Create a special user account that will be used only for accessing this one Shared Folder - for example MyUser, and give it the necessary permissions. The user account is local to the computer where the Shared Folder is, not to the computer from which ...

The refresh rate reported by the monitor itself should be accurate. Also if you're using a VGA connector, you can use an oscilloscope to probe the vsync line to see if the video card is indeed syncing at 100hz. Also pin 8 on a dvi connector carries the analog vsync signal as well. Take a look at this also: ...

It's quite possible your PC still has the factory restore partition - in which case, you do not need to 'find' an ISO online - you won't even need the key, actually. Assuming you've backed up everything you want to keep, restart the PC and hold Ctrl+F11 as it reboots. If you see the "Dell PC Restore By Symantec", you should be good to go, as this holds a ...
