Compatibility issue

Question: Compatibility issue

Hmmm, okay. As a writer my editor wishes me to use a template to write in. I open the saved .rtf template file, save it under the book name and start working.When I save the file I am working in, the page changes from .rtf to compatibility mode and I get an information box that says, The following features in this document are not supported by earlier versions of Word. These features may be lost or degraded when you save this document in an earlier file format. Click continue to save the document. To keep all your features click cancel and save the file in one of the new file formats. Under that there is a space and it tells me;Summary: Some custom properties that are stored in this document will be lost. Number of occurrences: 1.Even when I save the document in a new .rtf file, I get the same message box. My question is, does that box mean that there is an issue with the way my editor formatted the template or is there an issue with my software? I have checked the Word update pages and it tells me everything is up to date, which makes me think that it is in the way my editor designed the template. My editor and I have discussed this issue and she sent me a new formatted template, and I still get the information box. Can anyone confirm or deny my thought?

Preferred Solution: Compatibility issue

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Compatibility issue

Are you both actually using the same version of Word?

I choose to install Windows 7 on one of my computers and i'm having a compatibility issue with a program. The program is called iLinc. I use it to attend my college courses online, it's like a conference call service. The error message that I am getting is this "iLinc was unable to retrieve necessary fiels from the server. (832)

I'm not too sure what this means. I never had this problem with Vista or XP. I've tried the compatibility mode but nothing has worked so far. I have choosen all options (Vista, XP, even 95 just of the hell of it) but nothing works for some reason. When I went to the iLinc web site they have a neat compatibility test and it says that I passed. But the problem is that they tested me for their version 10 and my college is using version 7.7

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Answer:Compatibility issue

I looked for an iLink configuration guide, but could only find a user guide. Can you provide a link to the support site? I will give it a once over if you do.

Hi,
I have a Acer 1640 laptop, about 4 yrs old which I want to give to a friend. The laptop has winxp running, and have ran a compatibility test to see if it's win 7 compatible.
After running the test it tells me that certain issues exist, drivers, etc. I've been searching the web to see if I can get updates, but no luck, Acer don't want to know, hence you guys can advise whether to ditch the laptop or what.
Many thanks

Answer:compatibility win 7 issue

Like you I have Googled for Win 7 drivers, it seems that Sound is a problem as well as LAN and with some Grahphics. Win XP is a good OS, many on this forum still think that it is the best so why ditch a perfectly good laptop because it will only run XP? Re-set it back to its original factory settings and you can then pass it on to your friend.
Here is the standard Acer Recovery Instructions

Power on the machine
At the white ACER BIOS screen, hold the “Alt” key and press the “F10” key simultaneously to start Acer eRecovery
Once eRecovery has loaded, click “Restore to Factory Default Settings”
Click “OK” to continue
From here, the eRecovery process will update all the data on the C: drive and restore a fully functional factory image (approximately 10 minutes).
Once eRecovery has run, press “OK” to reboot unit

Hi,Wondered if anyone could give me some advice please. I have a wireless broadband package setup (Virgin Media) with a Netgear 54Mbps Wireless ADSL Modem Router (DG834GSP v3) which I can access through Wi-Fi on a laptop (running Vista Home). The network is secured with WPA-PSK.I want to connect to the same network on another computer (desktop, running Win XP SP2) which has a Belkin Wireless USB Network Adapter (F5D7051) installed with the relevant drivers, however the Belkin Adapter can see the network as WPA-PSK and asks for a password which I enter, it then sits there trying to connect to it and in the end I get the message "Limited or No Connectivity".Could someone please advise what I can do to connect to the network with this computer?Many thanks in advancePaul

Hello everyone

Recently I have built my first computer (yay!) but it seems that something is not 100% correct compatibility wise. I have an Apple TV so I have iTunes installed as my default app for music / movies.
My headset is a Razer (with jacks) which sounds fine when I'm chatting on Skype / TS but when i want to listen to music or watch vid clips on YouTube the sound is choppy and distorted.
First I thought that it was the headset so I bought a new Logitech (usb) -- same issue, distorted, choppy and bloody annoying.
Is there a setting that i need to change or is the comp faulty?
The motherboard is a MSI A88 gaming mATX fm2+ and the CPU is a AMD Athlon X4 860K

thank you for the assistance, I'm all out of ideas :/

Answer:Compatibility issue?

Likely a driver issue. Ensure you have all of the motherboard drivers installed and that you are using the latest versions. The motherboard drivers should be manually downloaded and installed, don't rely on Windows or Update. Windows often doesn't install all of the drivers for your hardware, nor the latest version.

I want to install the Windows 7 RC, but upon scanning my system everything was compatible except this: "Texas Instruments PCIxx12 Integrated FlashMedia Controller - Not Compatible". How can I fix this in a Gateway laptop with Intel Core 2 Duo, 2GHZ, 2GB Ram? Thanks!

Answer:Compatibility Issue

I have a Gateway FX 7026 desktop and the compatibility check told me the same thing, but once loaded up there was no problem. Now, if after setting up 7 you still have the same problem then attempt to fix it by using the drivers disk that came with the laptop. Then attempt to install the Vista driver. If that doesn't work check with the Gateway web site to see if they have come up with drivers for your specific laptop.

Last but not least if you can setup the laptop to dual boot until the drivers are available for your laptop.

Hi guys. Wondering if this is a compatibility issue.

I've upgraded my dell xps (quad core) from vista 32 bit to Win 7 64 bit operating system.

Now here is the problem. Everthing within an application is smaller compared to before. Internet Explorer 8 for example. The favourates bar and other icons within the top frame look smaller compared to how it was in vista. How can this be enlared? Not only the Internet but other applications dont fill the page as it used when i ran vista. I'm not talking about increasing the font size to "medium" or "large" as this did not solve the problem.

Can this be solved? Thanks.

I tried upgrading an HP Omni 27-1054 from Windows 7 to Windows 10.  Now it cycles through two error messages "WDF volation" and "inaccessible boot device," shuts down and cyces again.  Microsoft techs tell me that the HP is missing necessary drives and that this is not Microsoft's problem.  Does this sound right?  Has anyone else had this problem?  Any known solutions?

Answer:Windows 10 compatibility issue

Greetings, Have you tried downloading the Media Creation Tool, then run the tool to create Win 10 install media for your PC. Run the USB or DVD boot media created using the tool and try the upgrade again. You should be able to also do a clean install by using the Win 7 product key found on your PC. Make sure you have a Win 7 restoration plan in place such as: data backup, HP Factory recovery discs or a recent system image backup and bootable rescue media as insurance. Win 7 to Win 10 upgrades can be problematic as you have already experienced. I have taken a Win 8.1 HP to Win 7 because I really like Win 7. Was also in the Win 10 Beta tester program since November 2014 and am not a big fan of Win 10. Cheers!

Hey

I'm working on deploying a piece of software I helped made (have access to source code).
Program compiled on VS2010 Win32 platform(x86).

When installing on 64bit systems Applicaiton folder correctly deployed to Program Files(x86) and dlls goes to SysWOW64 folder. Setup project is basic VS2010 generated .msi file.

Deploying it on different computers is giving some very weird results, here is what i tried:

Win XP SP3 : Works fine
Win7 SP1 64 bit: Works fine

Win7 SP1 32bit: Does not work (program crashes)
Win7 Embedded SP1 32bit: Does not work (program crashes)
Both of the above two cases, turning on Compatibility mode "Windows 7" solves the problem.

Same problem on both OS, program crashes during loading (its a technical control system that needs to communicate with serial ports, ethernet ports, PLC/FIINS, UDP, Profibuss internal card, etc. Also using a NI CWUI ActiveX control for showing graphs).

If it was an issue with a dll or something, I would expect to see problems on xp, but i don't. Installing on XP I never have a problem. It seems to only act up when running on Win7 32bit sp1 (assuming compatibility mode actually means running without SP1)

So a couple of questions:

What does "Windows 7" compatibility mode mean in Windows 7? Is it a service pack thing?

Any ideas why the software runs fine in xp and Win7 64 bit, but not 32 bit? Seems to me if it was 64 bit acting up it would make sense, but I never had any problems running it o... Read more

When I was in high school I took a couple computer science courses using Visual Basic. We were given what we needed on a CD that we got to keep. Visual Basic 6.0 I think. Anyway my brother is now taking the same course next year and wanted to play around on VB. We now have a new computer with vista on it and when I try and install the contents of the CD it gives me an error saying something about it not being compatible with vista.

What I'm wondering is if I install it anyway can it screw up the computer? It may not work but it only says one of the components on the CD doesn't work and I may not even use that part..

Also, is there anywhere to download it for free of the web? If so I may just do that.

There is a calculator program that I've used forever up to XP-SP3. It's a small fast program that does not install; simply click and run each time. When I run it under Win7/64, I get the error dialogue box: "The version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 or x64 version of the program..."

I've set the "compatibility for all users:" to:
Windows 95
and checked all five boxes starting with "Run in 256 colors", etc.

Nothing helps. Short of running the compatibility emulator, which is slow and sort of defeats the purpose of this quick little program, is there anything else I can try to get this to run?

Answer:Program Compatibility Issue, cannot run

Hi bbear2 and welcome to Seven Forums.

I suspect that your calcuator program is a 16bit program. That will not run on 64bit Windows 7.

I have two computers using wireless at home, one being a desktop and the other a laptop. The desktop has never had a wireless problem but the laptop drops the connection "randomly"--anywhere from 1 to 10+ times a day. In the router's log it says this at every disconnect: wl0: 11g : DeAuthentication (rcvd. station leaving). The signal strength is fine, and this seems to happen regardless of where the laptop is in my home. What really gets me is that I've taken this laptop to friends' homes and wifi hot spots and never had a problem. Does my laptop's adapter just hate my router?

Laptop has SMC 802.11g 108Mbps card.
Router is Buffalo Wireless-G MIMO.

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Wireless Compatibility Issue?

CrucDawg,

This is just a guess, but something I have seen before. There may be something with your security settings between your laptop and router. Perhaps if you blow away the wireless connection profile on the laptop and then rebuild it (or just create another one) it may solve your issue.

Good luck

Hi everyone, hope you all had a good Christmas.
On Christmas morning my Dell Inspiron 660 died with what I suspect is a dead PSU. On searching the internet I found that there are at least 3 PSU's with different model numbers that are said to be for the 660. One source actually describes the item with all three part numbers, implying that they are the same. The numbers are: X9GWG (mine), 0 or OVWX8 and 5W52M. My question is, are these the same or if they are different but compatible what is the difference? The technical details and, as far as I can tell the external wiring are the same, I suspect that the mounting screws are in different places.
Any help you can give me will be very much appreciated.
Dave

Answer:Dell 660 PSU compatibility issue

They all seem very expensive for a 300w power supply,thats what you get when buying original parts (found one at £307 on amazon)
if I were you I would be looking for a larger wattage (the more the better)and a none dell make that fits in the box, there are plenty around.
If renewing a PSU check:

The physical size of your PSU, some are hard to replace due to being a non standard size.
The amount of power need from the PSU don't skimp.
The correct connections for your equipment

1. Physical Dimensions
Besides the specs and form factors, the physical dimensions are also important factors in selecting a compatible power supply. Here is an outline of the physical dimensions of most standard power supplies:
ATX: 6x3.5x5.5", HxWxD. Most common. Uses 4 mounting screws.
Mini-ATX: 5x3.5x5", HxWxD. Rare size. Uses 4 mounting screws. Can be used in a regular ATX case, but often not the other way around.
MicroATX: 5x3x4", HxWxD. Use 3 mounting screws. Not interchangeable with ATX or miniATX.
Flex ATX: Even smaller than Micro ATX. Various sizes according to case specs; often not interchangeable.
Use the data above to determine if a particular power supply would fit your case.
The quality of a power supply can be estimated by its weight. While this is not a true scientific or thorough measurement of the power supply reliability, it is nevertheless a very simple and easy way for ordinary PC users to estimate and compare the quality of a power supply. Why weight matters click here Pow... Read more

Wasn't really sure were exactly to post this as my problem is related to vista, and in a sense hardware but more along the lines of the software in regards to this hardware. None the less I purchased a Creative USB X-Fi Surround 5.1 all proper drivers are installed and I have checked for updates. To get to the point every speaker works but the Sub so I have no bass. I have checked the sub using another comp which is running Windows XP and the problem is not present. Now if I connect the Sub to the rear speaker out I get a bit more bass but of course I have no rear speakers. I have done a bit of research and checked creatives forums and none of the temp fixes seem to work or I'm just not doing them right. Now in the creative entertainment mode there is an option to enable bass redirection and if I check this I do get bass but the problem is how distorted the bass is which most of the temp fixes try to address this but fail to in my case.

Thank you in advance.
 

Answer:Vista compatibility issue

Since this was tested against an XP box and all was well, have you tested against a diff. Vista box(diff Mfg) too? I'd try that first, then go to Creative(e-mail support) with your machine config. and see if they have a direct answer. It seems that their is a USB hang up in the Creative driver and it's not picking up all of the audio out from the M/B. I'm thinking that the problem is fairly low-level and normal driver/OS updates aren't gong to resolve the problem

I have an old program (an interactive French-English Dictionary) which was originally developed for Win3.1 and DOS5.0 (or above).I have succesfully installed this program on my laptop, under WinXP-Pro by simply running setup from the CD.However, I cannot get the same application to run successfully on my desktop PC (under WinXP-Home). The installation appears to go OK and all the files are copied across OK. When I attempt to run the app, I get a message "CREFWIN caused a General Protection Fault in module CREFWIN.EXE at 0002.0831".I have tried various compatibility settings with no joy. Have also tried running the install from a CMD prompt. Still no joy.However, I have found that if I start the app from a CMD prompt it works OK. This is a bit of a pain, particularly as the app consists of two .exe modules (one French-English and the other English-French) which do automatic look-ups in the other when you right click a word in the other language - the second module fails if it also hasn't be pre-loaded from the CMD prompt.Now, I would accept that the hassle with the CMD prompt might be something one would have to live with due to backwards compatibility issues; BUT why does it work OK under XP-Pro, but not XP-Home???Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions as to settings I might change to get it to work under XP-Home or is there some fundamental difference between XP-Pro and XP-Home that would account for the different behaviour?

Answer:Windows Compatibility Issue

It seems that the problem is associated with trying to open the application in a maximised window. If I change the relevant value in the application's .INI file to not open maximised, it works OK (as long as I don't then close the app with the window maximised, as this causes the problem to occur next time round).This still doesn't explain why it works OK on one PC and not the other. I did think it might be to do with the screen resolution / aspect ratio being different (between the two PCs), but I've established that this isn't the problem.

I need to buy some new ram.

I already have one module to go in my machine, but it has to be installed in pairs. I can't find the exact same one anywhere, but i have found numerous kinds with almost identical specs.

I say almost identical because there has been one consistent difference between the ram of which i have one module already, and the similar kind offered for sale on many websites.
That difference is in the tRAC(ns), row access speeds.

Mine is 45; I have only been able to find stuff with 40.
Everything else matches.

So my question is, does this matter?????

are they still compatible?

I need to install them in pairs, so it's essential I get this right.

Answer:XP 64 pro and 32bit compatibility issue

Some programs use 16-bit installers. x64 doesn't support 16-bit binaries.

It's helpful to name the program you're having problems with in case someone has come across a workaround. Sometimes it's as easy as manually copying the files and creating start menu items or shortcuts.

Hello, I upgraded my GPU to a GeForce GT 710 about a month ago. Soon after I realized that the rest of my computer needed to be upgraded. Got a new MB, MEM, and CPU to compensate, details listed on profile. Well after all of that, I found out about the offer for a free upgrade to Windows 10, did a system check and it found that my GPU is not up to par for them. So I went to the store and they were puzzled that the current GPU was not compatible, told me to uninstall my drivers and reinstall using ones downloaded from the internet. Check, still no success. So I bought a GT 730, which has Windows 10 all over it and thought no issue. Installed it, current drivers, device manager lists the GT 730 and not the 710. The compatibility manager for the free upgrade is still saying I have a GT 710 installed.

I have literally ran out of ideas other than putting back in the old GPU, uninstall it, put back in the new one and install it all over again.

Any ideas or suggestions? Please let me know.

Thanks

In fact, it installed itself. It was one I had lying around from a previous project, we popped it in, and Windows 8 seemed to recognise it and reported it working correctly within just a few seconds.

i have just obtained a nvidia geforce 5600 agp video card from a friend of mine. when i went to install it with my msi motherboard it doesnt function properly. it is fact made by msi. the symptoms are that it will be recognized by the motherboard, fire up the monitor and load windows. but all you can see right from the beginning is a white screen with occasional interruptions of color as one screen loads from another. it reminds me of when i was a kid and the nintendo would mess up. you either had to blow on the cartridge or push up and down on the cartridge to unscramble it. i tried uninstalling my ati drivers to see if they were interfering then shut it down. same results when i booted my machine up. i've checked in the setup to see if my agp settings needed tweeked, but theres nothing i could find that would help.i know my agp slot works cause my ati 9250 is running in it right now. the only reason i would like to swap it out is for game requirement issues and features i need that the 9250 lack. if i could get it to work so i could see in windows i could download updated drivers and all would be good in the world. as it is all i can see is white. sorry if something like this has been posted and i havent come across it. just redirect me and i'll check it out.if not then any help would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:bad card or compatibility issue

First of all, try putting the card in another computer to verify it is working properly.
If the problem starts the moment you turn on the computer, the drivers are not the cause. Drivers are loaded at the end of windows startup.

Hello dear colleagues,

As the title says, I have a Toshiba Satellite L755-128 code PSK30E. It has a 2nd generation Intel i5-2410M processor.

Laptop running fine and all, but I recently got a nice deal on a newer laptop, with overall lower specs, but a better processor. It is a DeII Latitude E5530, with a 3rd gen Intel i5-3230M.

Going on Intel's site, I saw that basically both processors have the same TDP of 35W, and same package size, both run on HT and have dual cores, the only difference being that the architecture changed from 32nm to 22nm and the frequency is higher.

Also, 2nd gen supports 1066/1333 MHz memory, and 3rd gen supports 1333/1600 MHz. My memory is 1333.

Of course, as you guessed, I intended to swap the processors between the two laptops. Upgraded the BIOS on both of them, then replaced processors, re-assembled, and at start-up, surprise: The DeII recognized the older version of i5, ran fine and all, but the Toshiba didn't.

It just opened when I pressed the ON button, but the screen remained black. Then I pressed again the button, it shut down as normally. (I repeat, BIOS already upgraded, as somebody recommended). I disassembled again the Satellite, checked if everything is in place, and second start-up time still the same.

Then I got annoyed and swapped back the processors onto their original Laptops. And, both of them are running just fine.

So if somebody came across this problem could you please advise if you managed to sort it o... Read more

Answer:Satellite L755-128 - CPU compatibility issue

Hi

I don?t know any notebook manufacturer who would officially support an CPU upgrade.
Mostly the CPU upgrades on notebooks are your own decision and nobody could provide you an confirmation that an notebook with new CPU would work or run properly.

Indeed many people try to update the CPUs and in many cases this works? also on Toshiba notebooks.

But there are some important notes:

1) you have to ensure that the chipset on the motherboard would support new CPU. In case it doesn?t, you cannot use it

2) even if new CPU would be supported by chipset, there is still open question about the BIOS support. BIOS is modified for each notebook series and it could be possible that some CPUs would not be fully compatible or supported by BIOS.

As you see, the CPU upgrade is not very easy and it?s no matter that another notebook which was equipped with the same CPU as the L755 supports the other CPU? there are much more factors which could affect such upgrade.

Answer:Windows98 (not 2e.) Hardware compatibility issue

Hi Tim. I think you will find that in MOST cases Windows 98 will work perfectly well. There are so many Windows 98 installations that hardware makers are still providing Windows 98 drivers. However there are probably some (and with Microsoft discontinuing support for Windows 98 there will probably be increasingly more) hardware devices that do not have Windows 98 drivers. I don't think there are any motherboards that don't have Windows 98 drivers, but I could be wrong. If you do find problems, you can always reformat and install a different operating system.

I would like to run 10 is there anything I could do to remedy the situation. I even bought a new hard drive that I put a fresh install of 10, that didn't help either. Opening programs, even going from website to website in Chrome is very very slow.

Answer:LHA.exe compatibility Issue with windows 8 64 bits

It looks like you need versions compatible with 64-bit OS's. I'm not familiar with foxpro but maybe this will help:http://armaitus.wordpress.com/2012/...If the lha compression utility is separate from foxpro maybe you can use winzip instead. It has a 64-bit version.

If you install Sophos with Adguard, you need to disable Sophos web filtering (or close Adguard) or you can't browse, pages doesn't load.

issue from Adguard Github (23 Oct 2015):
Test Adguard with Sophos web protection Issue #388 AdguardTeam/AdguardForWindows GitHub
 

Answer:Sophos compatibility issue with Adguard

Seems this only happens with WFP driver enabled which is not needed for third party browser and IE. Edge and the Windows 8/10 apps ads won't be filtered. For me (if I used Sophos) is an ok trade off. I don't use Edge and rarely use Windows apps excluding Xbox (which has no ads).

I have a Dell PowerEdge SC420 server and I would like to add some more memory to it.

Can I buy any brand of DDR2 PC2-4200 533MHz 240 Pin memory?
I thought ppl are selling kingston memory really cheap on Ebay, can I buy that ?

Answer:Memory Compatibility Issue for Dell PE 420

You should be able to but there's no guarantee. What you must watch though, it that the SC420 uses ECC RAM. This means that either the additional RAM must also be ECC or if mixed, ECC must be disabled in the bios (assuming the bios has that option).

You're best bet therefore is to buy ECC memory to match.

Dear Lenovo communityI have a Lenovo h500s with 2 GB ram. The manual says it can use up to 8 GB of RAM. http://www.lenovo.com/shop/emea/content/pdf/Essential/HSeries/en/essential-H500s-datasheet.pdf I bought a kingston kvr16s11/8. The voltage is identitical to my 2gb card (1.5V). Frequency is 1600 Mhz on both, and 12800 Mb/s capability as well.However my Lenovo doesn't see the new RAM and wouldn't boot. [[The seller is saying Lenovo might not be supporting 8GB, but I doubt it; He suggests that I change it for 4GB. I want 8GB, because I'm trying to use Photoshop and Illustrator, and I think that 4 GB may not be enough.]] I would appreciate an early reply, because I have to finalize the issue before late afternoon tomorrow.Thank you.

Hi there, I hope this is the right section I'm posting in (which is, I think).

I have a question related to a possible compatibility issue. I have searched all over the internet, all the info about my GA-K8NF-9 motherboard from the gigabyte site has been taken down for some reason I don't understand and I can't check with the info I need.

About a week ago I bought an NVIDIA 9800GT graphic card and I and began to test it out.
Installed all the drivers, no problems so far.. and I started playing games. Any game, no matter the graphic requirements would crash after about 3-4 minutes of playing. All the colours would go nuts and my whole pc would freeze completely. I tried to install the newest version of drivers on the internet (not the ones on the CD I installed the first time). Afterwards, at the windows login screen I could only see a weird blue colour and couldn't select anything.. tried again and again and it worked. Same problem with the games. And afterwards it had problems recognizing my monitor. Mostly all the time, so I couldn't use it anymore.

I went to the producer and requested that they change my graphic card with another one. Now I have a brand new NVIDIA 9800GT but I'm afraid to use it. I don't know if the other one had problems BEFORE I started using it or maybe broke after I used it because of my system, mainly the compatibility of the motherboard/bios with it.

Here's some basic info about my rig:

I have two computers that are running Win XP Home and one that is running Win Xp Media Center Edition. Will I have any problems upgrading the Win Xp Media Center Edition?
Currently I'm trying to upgrade the system with Win Xp Home. It has a Gigabyte AMD AM2 Socket (GA-M57 SLI-S4) motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000+, 4 GB of ram and a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS soundcard.
I ran the windows 7 upgrade adviser on the computer and then someone suggest I also run the vista upgrade adviser as well. On both it is telling me that there is a problem with "Windows Aero Support". I've seen lots of posts stating it will run on their video card but I have not seen anything on mine and need to know if I can upgrade to Win 7 Home Premium without a problem.

Hi, Nancy. That upgrade thing makes video mistakes all the time. Your video card and motherboard, in this case, will run Windows 7 with Aero very well.

If the USB wireless adapter has Vista driver, then it will work on 7 as well. You may need our help here to get it to run, but it's no sweat.

Now about Creative. There is a hobbyist named Daniel K. that has made much better drivers for the card. Creative, in plain English, is horrible. With Daniel K.'s driver, you shouldn't have any problems running this card. The Creative game port is for pluggin in midi devices and/or gamepads for games. It is probably not needed by you, since the motherboard itself most likely also has this functionality. Anyway, Daniel K.'s driver should fix that too.

I recently purchased an Intel Celeron D 325 CPU and a MSI 865G NEO2-PLS motherboard. After putting everything together for a new system with this motherbord and CPU, the system wont post. When the power is cut on all of the fans spin, lights turn on, I get one short beep, but nothing else happens.

I've tried disconnecting additional drives and booting with the most minimal hardware possible, but I still get the same result. I've tried clearing the CMOS settings and have gotten the same result.

Although I realize that this motherboard has P4 written all over it, i've seen it listed as being compatable with Celeron processors also. It's also listed as being compatable with Intel based Prescott processors (which this Celeron D is).

Is this still possibly a compatability issue between the processor and motherboard? If so, is there a solution such as updating the BIOS to support this particular processor?

Also, i've been trying this with 1 to 2 sticks of Ultra 512MB PC3200 DDR RAM.

Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Compatibility issue between Celeron D and MSI NEO2-PLS?

Just in case, did you supply power to the square 4 pin connector on the motherboard? I believe it's located just behind the I/O connectors.

Hello TheTrooper, and welcome to Seven Forums.

The tutorial below can help show you how to disable the "Program Compatibility Assistant" in Windows to prevent it from happening again in the future.Program Compatibility Assistant - Enable or Disable
Next, check using OPTION THREE in the tutorial below to look in the registry to see if there may be a string value entry for the AutoCAD program in the Layers key at both registry locations. If so, then you can delete (step 5) the string value for the AutoCAD program. You may need to restart the PC to apply afterwards.Compatibility Mode
Hope this helps,

I have been running Everest Temperature utility for a few months now, with no problems at all. The only issue I had is that every time I would start it up, I would get a UAC message. I want it so load at startup without having to prompt me every time. So I downloaded the Application Compatibility Toolkit and went through the steps to have UAC stop bugging me for Everest.

Now I can use Everest without being prompted by UAC, but everything in Everest has been screwed up! The sidebar gadget that I was using that is included with Everest used to have my motherboard, CPU cores, GPU, and hard drive temperatures. Now it only shows my GPU temperature but not the correct one. I went into the Everest preferences to see if the temps just got turned off, but now they aren't even there. It still has options to show thigns like voltages for my CPU, but no temperatures.

So I deleted the fix I made for Everest in the Application Compatibility Toolkit and rebooted, and the same problem kept happening. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Application Compatibility Toolkit also and that didn't work either. I'm really at a loss here and would really like this to be fixed. Does anyone have any idea what I could do to fix this? By the way, I am running Vista x64 Business and my specs are in my sig.

I'm having difficulties with my computer over the past couple of months trying to play a game called Archeage, I believe it has caused many people grief. I've tried several steps to resolve the issue, but I am sure I've missed things that could help resolve this issue. I've gone to each of the manufactures sites to get various drivers to make sure I'm up to date, I've done hardware tests on my system as well. I believe I will need a new graphics card, but I want to be certain first.

Secondly I had bought two sets of PXD38G1866ELK ram which has a 1.65V requirements. One set of that ram had a physical failure and was replaced with PV38G186C9K ram, which has a 1.50V requirement. When I inquired with the support team they informed me to "set the voltage to the highest but not over 1.65V". I thought that would be fine, but since then I've had the SPECIAL_POOL_DETECTION_MEMORY_CORRUPTION when the system was idle and two "windows has shut down to prevent damage to your system".

Hi There

Apologies if this question is in the wrong part of the forum but I need help with a battery problem for my Toshiba Laptop.

I have a Satellite A300 and have done for about 4 years.
The battery recently has not been holding charge and I put this down to age so ordered a new one online.
My previous battery had Model Number PA3534U-1BRS with DC 10.8v and 4000 mAh and my new battery is also PA3534U-1BRS with DC 10.8v and 4000 mAh.

The problem is that the computer doesn't seem to like it.
If I put the battery in and connect the power adaptor the red battery icon will show and remain for around 5 minutes before starting to flash.
When I turn the computer on and log in the computer displays 'battery not detected' in the battery icon on the toolbar.
I have not been able thus far to charge the battery.

What am I doing wrong ? Any ideas on how I can get around this ?

Any help gratefully received

Thanks

Answer:Satellite A300 - new battery compatibility issue

Hi

First of all there are no many things which need to be done if you replace the battery.
The new battery should be recognized automatically by Windows system and notebook.
If it?s not the case then the battery is not fully compatible or it malfunctions.

There are many batteries on the market; original parts and not original parts?
I recommend buying an original Toshiba batter from Toshiba service in your country.
In such case you can be 100% sure that you have bought an right and good part for your notebook.

Hey folks,

I've been running Online Armor as my firewall, and I have to say that I'm (thus far) pretty pleased. Starting up Firefox is a bit slow, but apart from that, no major issues. It lets me know when other programs are trying to do things, which I like (I'm sure that's normal for a lot of protection-oriented programs).

My problem: I can't run Gametap now. Is anyone out there running Gametap together with Online Armor without any issues? I've tried going through their help resources, but the answer I got from their tech guy was pretty much bunk. He suggested getting rid of SuperAntiSpyware, which I did, though that didn't fix things.

When I go to run Gametap, I get the message: "Your connection to the internet or Gametap servers may be down or blocked by your firewall settings. Please wait a few moments and try again."

I've created the necessary rules in Online Armor to allow Gametap to run appropriately. I've set Gametap to use ports 80 and 443. I'm not very tech-savvy, so I have a hard time trying to figure out the cause and effect of problems on my own... anyone have any advice?

Much obliged,

BFD

I have Windows Vista Business , after I installed it won't run it. I even right-clicked it and went to properties and chose compatibility, but that didn't seem to work. Also I even dowloaded a patch or update fix. When I dowloaded the patch or update fix, it said it didn't apply to my system. How can I get Dungeon Siege to work on my computer?
 

Answer:Dungeon Siege Compatibility Issue Unsolved!

I am looking at the box for the machine requirements to run Dungeon Siege II. It does not indicate that it is Vista Capable. I also took a quick look at a couple of web sites and found that there is indications that Dungeon Siege is in a list of programs that show compatability problems with Vista. Perhaps someone will respond with actual Dungeon Siege/Dungeon Siege II/Vista information for you. You should also consider detailing the specs of the machine you are attempting the installation on.

Posted twice previously --- no answers. Perhaps three times will work. Wondering about two issues --- has anyone experienced compatability issues with iTunes after Vista upgrade? And two, is Barca or PocoMail compatible? I know Eudora is not. Thanks.

Answer:Third try for help --- anyone? iTunes compatibility issue and PocoMail or Barca?

i have never had any problems with itunes & my ipods with vista beta2 or rc1. don't use the others, so can't help you there.
