Preferred Solution: Windows 8 64bit IE 10 app not working

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Windows 8 64bit IE 10 app not working

1. when you switch to apps - from desktop by pressing windows key on keyboard.
DO YOU have IE on your start menu
OR are you then right clicking on a blank area and clicking on all apps and then opening from there

2.When you say it does not connect - is that a message, as depending on how it has been used it only opens on a blank screen, but at the bottom you should see the IE symbol and the bar

Please see my screenshot - that bar is at the bottom of the page I have copied and pasted only the bar

Just got into the flavour of windows 7 for a couple of days and I'm lovin' it.

Now, I installed Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus 64 bit on my system. Then I tried to use the Mathtype plugin 6.6a, but I cannot make it to work.

What I've done so far:

1. Installed MS Office 2010 Professional Plus 64bit successfully.
2. Installed Mathtype 6.6a successfully.
3. Copied the following files in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\STARTUP
C:\Program Files\Math Type\MathPage\MathPage.wll
C:\Program Files\Math Type\Office Support\MathType Commands 6 For Word.dotm
C:\Program Files\Math Type\Office Support\
What is the error I am getting?

1.When I open MS Word, there is a macro warning (as usual) and when I "Enable Content", the following error screen pops up:

2. When I press "OK", I get the following error screen:

3. The "Help" button shows me the following windows7 help:

Is it possible to integrate the add-in to the MS Office 2010?

Answer:MathType add-in not working for 64bit MS Office 2010 64bit

We at Design Science are working on 64-bit office compatibility for MathType. However, the current version is not recommended for use with Office 2010. More importantly, Microsoft doesn't even recommend installing 64-bit Office, even on 64-bit Windows, unless you really, really need it. See 64-bit editions of Office 2010.

Answer:Windows 10 64bit can't working with my laptop

Hi, you only need a 64bit OS when you have more than 4Gb RAM - or if you plan to add more RAM of course.

Perhaps your thinking about 2.89Gb comes from part of your RAM being shared with a video card, or used by integrated graphics.

For example see

I just downloaded Combofix and ran it. I got an error saying that I was running Windows 2000 and the software could not work on Win2K.  i am currently running Window 8.1 with all updates on a Lenovo ideapad with Core i7-4500u CPU @ 1.8Gig and 8G of memory. When I run Malwarebytes then HitMan Pro, neither finds any problems. However, my Browser Chrome Version 39.0.2171.71 m, is running extremely slowly which is usually a sign of it being hijacked.

Hi everyone,

Im new here and registered because i am at a total loss

I recently aquired Windows 7 Installation cd and tried to install it o n my CPU:

Processor: AMD Athlon x2 2.60 GHz
Motherboard: Biostar A690M2+
VGA: Sapphire Radeon HD 4670

Now the problem is that the 32bit version of windows 7 works flawless with my system but the 64bit just wont work with my HD 4670...

I found out that its the HD 4670 because i tried installing windows 7 64bit with minimal RAM and onboard VGA. Then i put the pieces together 1 by 1 and booted windows to test which piece was the culprit...
After i put the HD 4670 in for the first time Windows 7 64Bit boots normally, but once it recognizes the VGA and installs a driver, after i reboot it hangs at the startup and gives me a Bluescreen with an unreadable error message, its unreadable because it rebooots too fast for me to actually read the Bluescreen message

I tried booting in safemode and disabling the HD 4670 in device manager, using driver sweeper and then installing the newest drivers but same result, after i reboot windows would restart itself on startup and give me Bluescreen

Pls note that it works fine in 32bit and that im a total CPU noob so pls refrain from any shortterms

Thanks in Advance

After months of patience and following the drivers-info on the Toshiba website,i found it was time to replaced my Vista32 Ultimate with Windows7 Ultimate. It seemed that all drivers now have a 64bit version working under Windows 7, the missing drivers/software could be replace with the Vista 64bit versions. Unfortunately i got some problems with the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner.

Just searched a couple of ours for a sollution to the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner (x64) problem with Windows 7. In hardware manager it shows an yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, telling me that there is a problem with the device. Via properties i get an error with code(39).

I have had a massive HDD failure. I found a spare 250Gb and installed a copy of windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on it. Sadly I don't own windows 8 or 8.1 that my laptop was designed for. So my question is ther anyway to get drivers for this laptop using 7 64bit os? I know I can get the amd apu driver via but not sure about the rest. Most important one is my wireless and USB 3.0 drivers. But all would be best. I have looked in official drivers but only 8 and 8.1 drivers made for this computer. And as old as it is this is my only option for looking for help. thanks in advance, Alice

I have a peculiar problem with aero peek. It sometimes just decides not to work anymore, and only shows labels instead of a preview. This is only temporary, because when I switch between other windows, the aero peek is activated again. I actually reproduced this behavior by switching to this post, and writing for 1-2 minutes. Hovering now only produced labels/tooltips. By switching to another window, aero was "activated" again.

After installing Windows 10 pro my WiFi will not connect. I have tried updating the driver (Ralink RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adaptor) and it tells me its upto date. im assuming this driver is the issue but not sure how i can fix this. My laptop model is: HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Notebook, Windows 7 home premium (x64)

Answer:WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer, would be to try the W8 driver for the RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi card your notebook has. I am not surprised that it doesn't work on W10, since there are no W8.1 or W10 drivers for that model card. This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8188CE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system.

I aldready posted this elsewhere on the forums, but then noticed that topic was located it was in the Tutorials section. Since it's pretty urgent to me I also created this topic.

Recently I upgraded from Win7 x86 to x64 (professional), but I can't get Windows Mail to work. I got a copy of a working 64bit version (from another computer) of Windows Mail but it won't work on my system, giving this error: 0x8007000E. I Googled it dozens of times but can't get to a solution, most of the results are related to Vista, 32bit and/or other software applications.

My housemate also has a Win7 64bit system, so I already tried copying my Windows Mail to his computer to see if it's corrupt or something alike, but it's not. It totally works on his computer.

Somewhere I found the solution of locating another MSOERES.dll elsewhere on the computer (C:\Windows\winsxs\x86_microsoft-windows-m..-core-dll.resources_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_en-us_2cea88b0c19dd22e) and placing it in the Windows Mail folder. I was very happy to see it actually launched the application, BUT.. There are no icons whatsoever and some text styling isn't correct:

I copied the whole Windows Mail folder again, placed it on my mate's computer, but with the same result. So this is probably due to MSOERES.dll. But with using the one that SHOULD work, I get the 0x8007000E error.

Can you tell us how you got Windows Mial on Windows 7? According to this Windows Mail isn't included with Windows 7 - Looking for Windows Mail? You'll have to use Windows Live Mail.

I know I don't have Windows Mail on my system, I do however have Live Mail, though I don't use it.

Am I missing something?

Actaully why can't you just use Live Mail? Doing the hack and crack thing with Windows Mail isn't going to work too well as you've seen.

hi vtrakroo,
The Lexmark X422 that you're seing is likely the scanner from your Lexmark printer (the built-in camera should usually be listed as Lenovo Easy Camera or similar)
  - Sample image
Things that you can try:
1. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 (or Fn+F2). In the BIOS, press F9 (or Fn+F9) to load setup defaults then press F10 (or Fn+F10) to save and exit.
    - this procedure will refresh all hardware components in the system
2. Inside Windows, check if you have an Unknown Device in the Other Devices section. If you have this, follow this guide on how to identify the device (or post the Hardware ID here)
    - Sample image
3. Reinstall the camera driver
   - Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, Awazu) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
Let me know how it goes.

Just picked up a Corsair Voyager GT 16GB USB 3.0

Plugged it into USB 3.0 port, my Intel Win8 PC did not like it, just said there was a problem with the device. Managed to solve the problem on Intel Win8 pc by installing some Renesas USB3.0 drivers.

However, I have the same issue on my new AMD build (see sig) also using Win8 64bit too. The renesas drivers do not work as that motherboard does not use renesas usb 3 controller. I tried one or two others as well, including an old Win7 one for AMD boards with no luck.

Have flashed the BIOS to latest version, and installed latest drivers and firmware for it - well kind of, you have to run the Setup.exe for the Gigabyte F2X85A motherboard in Windows 7 compatibility mode, if I try and run normally, it says O/S not supported!

Very shoddy Win8 support for some chipset and USB drivers. But if anyone can find a solution i'd be VERY happy.

Today i updated my Windows 7 laptop to the Windows 10 Home 64bit OS. Everything seems to work fine, except the WIFI. Windows does find my adapter, but won't wake it up. My built-in wifi button (f12) has got a red light on it, even when I pressed it. I tried the Windows 8 wireless button driver, but i didn't solve my problem. With that driver installed the button switches between airplanemode on/off. Not between WIFI. Also in the WIFi settings wifi turn off. When I try to switch it on, it directly turns back to "off". Wired internet works flawless. I gues it's an driver issue, so i was wondering if there is an driver upcomming? Or is there another solution to switch it on.Please help me. It's very annoying.

It turns out that if I stop or restart Internet Explorer 8, then I can cut and paste again normally. After running Internet explorer again for an hour or two or even a day or two, the problem re-occurs, and again I have to close internet explorer.

I use various applications putty, xming, notepad++, firefox, internet explorer 8, outlook 2010, toad, office 2010 all running on Windows 7 64bit and I restart my PC every 4 or 5 days. Our PC's are regularly patched and have the latest updates and have virus protection.

Has anyone else noticed this cut and paste problem with Windows 7 64bit and Internet Explorer ?

I recently upgraded my T410 from Windows 7 64 bit to Windows 10 64 bit.  My Series 3 docking station worked great under Windows 7.  However, it is NOT functioning properly with my upgrade to Windows 10 64 bit. I see the BIOS startup as I did before under Windows 7, but then I see a black screen with only the cursor.  I can move the cursor on the black screen but the screen NEVER changes from black.  I am have the Intel integrated graphics with driver version dated 11/26/2012. In advance I appreciate the assistance as I can't work at my desk with my 24" monitor!

Answer:T410 with Windows 10 (64bit) not working with Series 3 Docking Station

For me it seems, than Windows 10 Pro will work well (under the black desktop).I could see the Win10-Taskbar, Select Startmenu, Run Programs but complete Desktop will be black.Cursor will shown, called Windows-Programms are shown and working well on all 3 connected screen.I could even click somewhere on the black area, where my desktop icons should be, I could start programs from the desktop too.If I switch the Windows-Design to other designs or other backgrounds, I could see the selected picture for half a second but then it will be immediately "overdrawn" by the black background ??? If I disable T410-LCD and use only my 2 by docking station connected external monitor, the Windows 10 Desktopbackground will be handled normal, without any problems. Probably someone will have a solution for me.Thanks in advance.dm01

Hi there! I've trouble with standby on my X121e (AMD E-450 platform). Hibernation works well, but standby doesn't work at all. If I start the X121e to resume from standby, I will either get error messages about almost every single program crashing (something with violation in address soandso) or it will reboot immediately. If I don't powercycle after this, Keyboard and Mouse won't work (altough at least I can use the keyboard in the Windows "F8" boot menu). Im running a pretty straightforward Windows 7 64bit installation and the Lenovo Solution Centre tells me that everything is up to date and OK. I'm also running the latest BIOS firmware, which should be 1.15 Oh, and the system is configured as EFI if that matters. What can I do to make standby work again? Regards  Steffen

Hi All, I just got Lenovo T420 Last week with Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit OS. Unfortunately internal microphone array does not work. I already tried installing  latest Audio driver for Conexant 20672 SmartAudio HD from Lenovo Support Site. Driver . Still no luck. Refereed one of blog article where they mentioned to disable Audio Enhancement, unchecked that and still no luck. Tried with Skype, Google Voice, Cisco WebEx Communicator, IP Communicator and no luck in getting internal Microphone to work. Also tried sound recorder and all recordings are blank. There are lot of users who are facing this problem with Lenovo T420 Win 7 64Bit OS, not many users have time to come forward to discuss the same. Trying an alternative solution like plugging in an external mic or using usb headphones is not an option. Internal speakers work fine. If external mic is plugged in even that works fine. to isolate this issue. I even tried downgrading and upgrading several audio driver releases. also tried clean OS reinstall and tried deploying our Win 7 Lenovo image on this laptop. still no luck. I suspect this could be an hardware problem. Please suggest. Remember: I have already tried settings under Fn+F6 key several times using permutation and combination and spent atleast 8 Hours continuously to find a fix. Any known solution, Hotfixes from Lenovo is highly appreciated.

When I insert a card into the reader nothing happens. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the card reader driver downloaded from Lenovo support and also from Realtek but nothing changes.

Answer:G580 Windows 8.1 64bit SD Card Reader not working/appearing in Device Manager

Do you have any "unknown devices" listed or showing in device manager?  If you do, right click and choose properties then look at Hardware ID and google it.
You can try resetting the BIOS by removing the battery and AC adapter then holding down the power button for 30 seconds.  Re-install the battery and AC adapter then power the system on to see if your device shows up.

Hi there,

I've looked over the forums and google but I really can't find anything that is exactly like my situation.

I was editting a pdf with Nitro PDF and I got the blue physical memory dump screen and a restart. After the restart, 'windows problem center has stopped working' followed by a couple other start-up programs. I then go to access IE and I get the 'not connected to the internet' screen (which I am connected) followed by 'IE has stopped working' when I close it. This happens (stopped working error) when I close a list of programs like iTunes, my virus scanner but not Acrobat Reader or Microsoft Word.

I've spent way too much money on this machine and to be honest.. I just want it to work :'(
I even bought a new CPU because the guys at MSY said if I bought a new CPU the sound would work. But you guessed it.. It didnt, so yes I did waste $216.
Anyway enough about me whinging, wheres that going to get us?
So save me typing it all out here i'll do a bit of a copy paste from another forum I've tried for help (with no luck) Feel free to see what they have said and what hasn't worked:
(I'm Andy88)

Ive installed all the software that came with my motherboard and its RealTek sound drivers, on screen it says that its playing, that sound is coming through my speakers.. yet when i plug my speakers in its just a static sound.. (crackling popping - Some sound is getting through though very low sound under the snap crackle pop)

I'm running 5.1 Logitech sound system from my old computer (works fine), but with my new computer i've tryed all the plugs (yes I know they are colour coded Green[Front Speakers] Orange[Center / Sub] Black[Rear])
But for some reason it just comes out as static & when i plug my headphones in, same deal.

Answer:Audio / Sound not working - W7 64bit

Uninstall the RealTek in the Device Manager, DO NOT uninstall the drivers, then restart the PC and when Windows starts it should detect and reinstall the sound. If there was a corrupted status in Windows this will fix it. This also fixes a lot of flakey problems and may take care of yours.

I notice four NVIDIA entries, you should only have one of those for the NVIDIA HDMI Audio. You may have to unintall all of them and then restart the PC to get them straightened out where only one NVIDIA audio is shown.

With the four NVIDIA, although you have the RealTek set as default playback device, it suggests corruption in the sound devices and the uninstall, restart may clear this up.

SO close! Help me get this ball across the goal line!

I have a old "Microtek ScanMaker E3" scsi flatbed scanner that originally came with an ISA scsi interface (to give you some idea of how old it is). I connected it to my PC using a equally ancient Tekram 390F pci SCSI card (c.1995) that I've been using with 32bit WinXP Pro for years.

The scanner has an 8-1/2" x 14" scanning bed, 9600dpi and 48bit color reproduction. It works great and I see no reason to spend a few hundred dollars to replace it just for Win7 compatibility, so I'm trying to get it to work with the 64bit version of Windows 7.

To complicate things, the company that made my SCSI card (Tekram) went out of business years ago, so the 32bit XP driver was the last they made. But after MUCH Googling, I found a 64bit Win7 compatible driver for another card using the same chipset, and low & behold, Windows 7 recognized it! It then "detected" my scanner for the first time, but didn't have a driver.

Again, after much searching, I found a Vista 64bit version of Microtek's "ScanWizard" scanner software with 64bit driver, and now 64bit Windows 7 detects my scanner! Yeah!

But when I try to access the scanner, I get an error telling me I "must install Color Matching System first" for the scanner to work. I don't remember any such software being needed to use the scanner with XP, and there is no such program in the ScanWizard software... Read more

Answer:Almost got my old scanner working w/Win7 64bit

That Microtek ScanMaker E3 scsi flatbed scanner ... didn't even work well with Windows XP... and the cost in time and components to attempt to make it work are much higher than a decent Canon or Epson scanner which can be had fof $40... Less if used...

Answer:L440 W7-64BIT and TFT black screen while working for few second

I like companys where you have to SOLVE Problems since i am used to that as consultant it keeps me going. But here? Perfect product but docking station ruined it? Here is the solution we found ourself - This is related to and OLDER Firmware of the Docking Station PRO-  V2.1.7.00 Is (A3) working and the Black screen DVI effect was away- You need to download fwdphb01.exe and flash IT Lenovo thank you for not helping and NOT monitoring the Forum . Don't say we did not open a ticket because WE did not find where we should do THAT (Not hardware case) while searching for 30 minutes. If you would like to know which Swiss Lenovo distributor had the two older version only you can write here we will mention them. We just flashed 10 docking stations at another customers site. Worst i am an IBM Shareholder and they just dropped to CHF 161.- from 179.- a few weeks ago....  Thats HOW you turn a fan into a buyer.

My mom gave me her old printer, since she got a new one, and I want to see if I can use it on my computer that I recently installed Windows 7 64bit on. It's a HP Photosmart 7350. I looked on the HP site for drivers but it seems there aren't any to download seeing as Win7 has a printer driver download thing built in. So I looked for a driver specifically made for Photosmart 7350 but there aren't any. When I looked for it on the web, apparently there is an alternate I can use (Deskjet 5550), which I installed from the "Add a printer" menu in the Devices and Printers window. It detected my printer but it doesn't print. When I try printing something I get errors. So I came here to see what I could do to fix this. I'm not sure what the problem is. Could I be using the incorrect drivers? Or is it something else?

I just bought my computer. (hp pavillion Elite 64 bit). Windows LiveOne Care worked great for June and July and then sometime in August it just quit. The computer tech guy at Future Shop (...luckily I also bought a 3 year warranty) said that EVERYBODY was having trouble. He said that when Microsoft instituted their new parental controls everything kinda crashed for them. He said that Microsoft was working their buns off to fix the problem. When I went to see him a week later he said the the problem was fixed for the Liveone Care users who have 32bit....but they were still working on the 64 bit problem..

He claims there is nothing for me to do - the problem lies with Microsoft. I have been unable to connect to LiveOne Care through the icon on my desktop, and my windows security alert is now THE RED X because I can't get any updates. (It has been over 4 weeks for me now!)

Is my computer technician guy right, or is there another problem. Should I look to a new security system (I'm quite new at computers...I mostly use it for making home movies for my family).

Thank you for reading my REALLY LENGTHY lament...
Please help!...or at least confirm that I haven't lost my marbles!!!

Answer:Live OneCare has quit working- HELP! (64bit)

That guy is wrong on something Live OneCare does not have parental controls. Parental Controls are built in to Vista, not Live OneCare.

You may want to uninstall Live OneCare and then reinstall it. This might straighten the program, and at the same time it will download and install Live OneCare version 2.5, which came out in June.

Hi guys

I just got a final version (The one that arrives on october 22nd) dvd with Windows 7 Ultimate, with both 32bit and 64bit..

But my problem is that everytime i choose 64bit installation in the installation menu, and then choose upgrade, it compatibility checks my pc, and then it says that i cannot install, because its not the same architecture, even tho my pc is able to upgrade to the specified version!

Well, i should be able to upgrade from vista ultimate x64 to 7 ultimate x64, without doing a clean install?

If anyone knows how to solve this, please reply

Oh yeah, my OS i windows ultimate 64bit...


Answer:Cannot upgrade windows vista ultimate 64bit to windows 7 ultimate 64bit!!!

Run setup while in Windows and you can.

If you run Setup from within Windows:

You can upgrade Windows Vista or Windows 7 Build 7077 or later.
You cannot run x64 Setup on a system running an x86 build of Windows, or vice-versa.
You cannot upgrade Windows XP or any pre-7077 build of Windows 7 (unless you use the workaround I describe later in this post).
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version. (I describe the best way to accomplish this in #4.)
You cannot make any changes to the layout of a disk; you must use existing partitions, and Setup will not recognize unallocated space.
If you boot from the Windows 7 DVD:

You cannot upgrade an existing Windows version. Your only option is a custom install.
You can delete existing partitions, create new partitions, extend an existing disk partition to unallocated space, or designate a block of unallocated space as the setup location.
You can install Windows 7 on the same volume as an existing Windows version.

Hello. Hopefully someone here could shed some light on this problem that have been messing with my mind since yesterday when I bought this printer. I have e-mailed Lexmark support but honestly don't expect that much from it.

So. I have this S505 all in one device. I connect it with USB, NOT Wifi. Note that it works fine when connected with USB in my Laptop, which uses Vista 32bit.

The software and driver installation seems to go as it should, and windows says the printer is ready to use. When I try to print something (Tried Paint, Wordpad, Mozilla, Notepad...) the document shows up in the printing monitoring window, but nothing happens, it just gets stuck there. If I try to cancel it, it changes status to cancelling, but doesn't go away. I get the error "Communication not available, the printer cannot communicate with the computer". This also happens when I try to update the firmware. Sometimes the firmware installer doesn't even find the printer although it shows up as ready to use in device manager. Here's the weird thing though: I have actually managed to print a few documents at what seems to be random occasions. Then it just stops working again. The printer itself works fine aswell, when copying or printing the test page.

Here's what I've tried so far:
- Installing software and drivers from the CD that came with the printer
- Installing software and drivers downloaded from Lexmark support
- Not installing anything (all previous ... Read more

I have a new (4 weeks) Dell Studio 1555 running Vista 64 bit SP1.

I loaded Skype, Microsoft Office Prof, Quicktime Player, I Tunes and a game Medieval II - Total War.

A few weeks ago I noticed that the keyboard was not responding all the time. So if I was in Hotmail, some of the characters or spaces wouldn't appear and I had to hit the key some 3 or 4 times to get something to come up.

Spoke to Dell who checked the hardware on line and once that proved okay, end of Dell support. Unless I paid!

Today a friend said that it sounded like a keystroke logger virus

I've got McAfee on the machine and loaded this as soon as I connected to the internet. Run a virus scan and nothing came up.

I've checked HiJack This log and seen a few things but a check on the internet has just left me confused.

However I did take Skype of my machine an hour ago and things seem to have improved.

Question is do I have a virus, could it be Skype or is this a crap pc.

Couldn't use the DDS.txt or much else as it doesn't appear to be accepted on this machine

Now click the Run Scan button on the toolbar.
Let it run unhindered until it finishes.
When the scan is complete Notepad will open with the report file loaded in it.
Click the Format menu and make sure that Wordwrap is not checked. If it is then click on it to uncheck it.

Answer:Built-in MIC for Aspire 6935G not working with WIN 7 64bit professiona

In most cases it is best to use the PC vendor (or motherboard vendor as appropriate) sound drivers. In your case the Acer drivers should be used. If they do not have Windows 7 specific drivers, the Vista drivers should work OK.

Non-Vendor drivers in many cases either do not work or do not work correctly. Many PC vendors have custom implementation and the reason the vendor drivers should be used.

After suggestions from Torrentg and BlackRoseMD1 (many thanks again) on this forum I have upgraded my BIOS to version 1801 and attempted to install the nVidia 195.39 beta driver. Unfortunately the result was the same. The install gets to about 40% then both screens go black. After about 30 secs to a minute the secondary monitor shows a garbled desktop after which it to goes black. After a further minute or so the system reboots and checks the disk for errors - continuing, the screens go black just after the win 7 logo disappears.

So I would appreciate any advice as to how to continue:

I had a activated version of Windows 7 pro 64 bit which got automatically approved for upgrade to Windows 10 pro 64 bit some months ago.

The upgrade to Windows 10 took place before the free upgrade deadline.

I had a boot issue with Windows 10 after I merged some unused partitions on the hard disk with the C: drive.
I re-installed Windows 7 pro 64 bit last week, after the free Windows 10 free upgrade deadline of 29th July 2016.

My question is, can I now still do a free upgrade to Windows 10 pro 64 bit version using a disk?

Thought I'd start with my full model number then the problem

*before upgrade everything was working fine.

Well I've just upgraded my windows 7 from 32bit to 64bit to take advantage of the 8gb of ram.
Everything went well, I downloaded and installed all the drivers from the support>downloads section for my laptop in the 64bit section.

It would seem I have a problem with Bluetooth and the network controller.
The network controller in device manager says no driver found or installed, I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the device as well as redownloading the drivers and reinstalling, but no luck so far.

Bluetooth driver starts installing gets about halfway and hangs, saying Bluetooth is not powered on, i've tried fn+f8 to power it on but no luck, I've done the same as with the network adapter, uninstall, reinstall, fresh driver, no change. In device manager it show RFBUS with no driver found or installed.

Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry for the massive post...

On a side note i did a fresh win7 32bit install last night to see if i could get it working but same problem again.

Answer:Satellite L750D - network controller is not working after 64bit upgrade


According notebook specification this piece of hardware was delivered with Win7 32bit and 64bit versions so why you do not install original 64bit recovery image?
I presume you didn?t create recovery media, right?

When you open device manager and network adapters is LAN or WLAN installed properly?
What are you missing?

About BT you may be right. BT software cannot be installed until BT device is not enabled properly.
What is with FN+F8? When you use it can you see BT option there?

Please note: if your notebook has WLAN switch it must be ON (WLAN LED must be ON) and just then you can use FN+F8 key combination to enable BT module.

I kept getting either errors about not being able to authenticate the WWAN connection or that the provider couldn't be found. After pulling my hair out, I made an complete backup to my server using Rescue & Recovery, and installed a vanilla copy of Windows 7 Professional 64bit, wiping the HDD clean & disabling Windows Update in the process. I then installed only the requirements for the latest version of ThinkVantage Access Connections (TVAC), see here, but still I had the same issue. Again, went back to a clean vanilla copy of Windows 7, and installed everything as before, except the older WWAN drivers from here, but still no success.  Now it appears the newer version of TVAC can't work with the older version of the WWAN drivers.&nb...

Logitech supposedly doesn't support hardware more than 3 years old for vista, BUT i've also noticed they have no drivers for the cordless elite duo on their site for XP 64 bit.

What a pain. This keyboar is still in fine shape and I recently bought a 64 bit setup and would prefer not to waste money on another keyboard when this works perfectly fine.

I'm typing on it right now in XP64 bit, but I can't use any of the specail function buttons or media controls because I don't have the drivers.
Any Ideas?

I recently bought a Novation ReMOTE 25 LE music keyboard and had no trouble at all connecting it on the pc (USB) the driver was automaticaly recognized and this works fine. I use it for Reason 4, Arturia Moog Modular v2 and Arturia Minimoog.
Hopefully this can help other Vista 64Bit users who are looking for a cheap midi-keyboard of good quality. There is even a midi-out to connect a sound module

I have a 3 month old Inspiron 1525 that I upgraded to Vista 64 bit. I reinstalled the integrated webcam driver and application software (both 64 bit compatible according to the download pages). However, when I start the application, select any of the various features to run (video recording, photo capture) it says "The camera is not available. Please make sure it is not used by another application."  I have uninstalled and reinstalled the driver and software, try various compatibility modes. Disabled Live Messenger. Varified that the WIA (Windows Image Acquisition) was set to automatic and started. All with no luck. Windows device manager recognizes the hardware and says it's working properly. The blue light flashes when rebooting. Microphone works fine. I know it's NOT a hardware issue as the camera worked just fine hours before the upgrade (it was a clean install of 64 bit Vista). All I can think is that there must be a couple settings that I"m missing in the OS. Any suggestions?
Update: I also tried re-installing the BIOS A16 update as suggested on another forum. No luck.

I currently have an AUSUS G60VX Notebook with Microsoft Window Vista Home Premium 64bit and would like to upgrade my windows.  With all the available sources on the internet to download from, I'm unsure of which would be legitimate and whether I will
get what I'm looking for without compromising and damaging my system.

I am looking for a reliable legitimate source to upgrade from Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit.
Thank you

Hello -
I just went ahead and put on Vista 64 Bit OS on my PC (I was using Vista 32) because I have 4 gigs of ram and wanted full use of all of them. I run a lot of memory intensive apps, so this move made sense for me.

So, I'm just wondering if any other Vista 64 bitters out there have some tips, software suggestions, etc to pass along so I can make sure I get the most out of my OS.

I was thinking about trying Firefox 64bit (minefield), not sure its ready to play with yet tho...

Thanks for any tips or software suggestions your willing to give!

Answer:Just upgraded to Vista 64bit..any other 64bit users have tips, software hints, etc?

Some 64-bit apps I've used (show up in reg. program files or w/o *32 in taskman):

Virtual PC 2007
VMWare Workstation
Vista Virtual Desktop Manager
Bullzip PDF Printer
Intellitype Pro (MS Keyboards)
