Preferred Solution: Windows 8 Official Iso ( 64 and 32 bits)

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.)

my desktop is Dell XPS 730. it currently using Vista 32 bits. Everything runs very slow and none of games are runnable due frames dropping, skipping, and freezing even after I installed new Hard Drive. I decided upgrade to Windows 7 64 bits would help with running minecraft game without issue.

I downloaded Windows 7 USB DVD download tool and Windows 7 64 bits ISO. it installed into flash drive successful but it came with bootsect error. So I looked around for it and found here 32-Bit BootSect

I downloaded "bootsect7600x86.zip". I right clicked and clicked on Properties and clicked unblock then applied and clicked ok. Then opened and I only find Bootsect exe file, nothing else. so I clicked that and command prompts came up and disappeared really instant and nothing ever happened. What am I missing? I also need Window 7 64 bits for my laptop after new HDD arrive. Just needed to make USB bootable somehow.

EDIT: I did right clicked on that exe file and did not see "run as admin"

EDIT2: Forgot to add, do I need to have product key code? Im upgrading my desktop from vista 32 bit to windows 7 64 bit

Answer:Upgrade to Windows 7 home perm 64 bits from Vista 32 bits

The term is bit, not bits

Use WintoBootic to put the iso on the flash drive, it works perfectly everytime.

Where are you downloading the iso from, I would download it again and check the size when you`re done.

Hey,
as the title says, I find myself in a dilema..

It started when I decided I wanted to put a total of 4GB of RAM in my computer. The problem is that I have Windows XP x86 (32-bits) installed.
Then, a few friends of mine adviced me to get rid of this old Windows XP (32-bits), get the total of 4GB of RAM and install Windows 7 x64.

My CPU's architecture supports x64 systems, as I have 4 cores. My main problem, is that I would have to reinstall all my programs, applications and drivers (because I have the 32-bits-versions installed) and that if I stay with my 32-bits-XP system, it would only read 3 to 3.5GB of RAM aprox.

In response to this, a friend told me that Windows 7 x64 wouldn't cause compatibility issues with those 32-bit programas, applications and drivers. However, if I'd like to get the best performance, I would have to download/get the x64-compatible-versions..

To sum it up, I would really like if you experts could help me and get me out of this dilema. Is it true what my friends mentioned me? Should I change and get the new Windows 7 x64? Which would be the downsides and which the upsides?

I would also like to mention that I am a still and motion graphics designer, and that the latest softwares for that (for instance all Adobe CS4) have come out x64.This would definitely be a plus if I change to Windows 7 x64, right?

Thank you very, very much.. Really.
Best regards,
Chris.

Hello Tech Support Guy Nation,

So I have an issue with getting a laptop hooked onto the router signal. The router is a brand spankin new Linksys EA4500 and the laptop is an IBM which is running Win XP (not sure of SP version as it is a customer's comp. at a hotel I run). Anyway, the error message I am encountering is:

The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters

At first I thought is was my router password since it contained a $ symbol so I changed it to only letters and numbers but still didn't work. I have never encountered this error message on any laptops and no other rooms have been affected. Thank you as always for the the knowledge...
 

Answer:Solved: Error Message:"The network password needs to be 40 bits r 104 bits depending.

You are using WPA or WPA2 encryption and the laptop--because of the lack of at least service pack 2, incorrect wireless driver, or old wireless adapter--does not support WPA(2).

This is a rather unsual error message from Windows 7, that cannot even run 16-bits programs, quote:

"Too many other files are currently in use by 16-bit programs. Exit one or more 16-bit programs, or increase the value of files in your Config.sys file."

The only time that this issue shows up is when trying to run a program as administrator from within my standard user account. The "Run as..." could be initiated either manually, or by running a program that requires elevated access rights to the system, such as starting an installation as a standard user.

The error is seemed to be triggered by the UAC, or more accurately the "consent.exe" file that actually locks up the screen and nothing can be accessed. It seems that the system is waiting for input for the UAC, clicking anywhere on the screen results in the typical error sound but nothing else. The "ctrl-alt-del" does bring up a list, selecting log out pops up the quoted error message during the logoff process. Logging back in with the same UID seems normal, until the "Run as..." initiated and the system seems locked again. Rebooting the system clears up this error, but it does come back in an irregular interval. The timeframe could be from an hour, or more, on some days it does not come back at all.

While Windows 7 64-bit does not have a "config.sys" file, one has been added to "C:\" that contains:

Answer:16-bits program error message in 64-bits W7...

Well, having the "config.sys" file did not help. The system still have the same issues as posted earlier. Removing EMET 3.5 didn't help either...

Other than the "Run as...", the system works fine with any other programs. While I could grant administrator access to my user account, I'd prefer not to do it.

Would anyone have an idea what could cause this issue?

I installed Autocad 2010 in window 7(64 bits). I couldn't install because Autocad software software is 32 bits. Window 7 is 64 bits. So it couldn't not install. So I would like to know how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7.

Answer:how to install 32 bits software in 64 bits window 7

32 bit software will run on 64 bit Windows 7 without any special steps being taken. Windows 7 64 bit actually maintains a 32 bit registry in order to accommodate 32 bit programmes.If you cannot install Autocad the problem is likely to be something more that the 32/64 bit difference. There is the possibility that it wouldn't even install on 32 bit Widows 7 and it is the OS itself that is the problem.You need to contact Autocad and see what they say about the problem, after all they know there own software better than anyone else.Stuart

Can someone explain these figures to me? Im talking about 8 Bits/channel in terms of imagery and pictures. I dont really get these. Is it the smaller the number, the better the picture? And, I heard that there are also different colour channels? Like Red and Blue channels, are these just the channels in which the computer can read and identify?And what about 48 bit colour? Is that in the same category as 8 Bits/channel? Or is it something totally different.I need to know more about colours.Thanks.

Answer:48 bits 16 bits 8 Bits Channel.

Essentially, bits per channel represents colour depth, the higher the bits per channel, the higher the range of distinct colours. This should explain better than I could click hereAnd when your finished reading that click here for answers to your colour channels query.

The network password needs to be 40 bits or 104 bits depending on your network configuration. This can be entered as 5 or 13 ascii characters or 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters.

My configuration is a bit oldish and I am not going to upgrade it.
- Gigabyte GA-K8NS

Most of the application I use are so far only available in 32 bits.

Do I get any better performance by having Seven 64
and use mostly 32 bit applications ?

If your computer is old and most of the programs would not run with 64 bit, I would stay with 32. The performace increase would be marginal, at best.

Hello:

We plan to buy several laptops and desktop preloaded with XP and most of them will have at least 8 GB of memory.

From what I have read XP 32 bits cannot access more than 4 GB. Is this true? What would happen if I install 8 GB on an XP 32 bits machine?

Should we go ahead with 32 bits or 64 bits?

I've heard that the 64 bits laptop drivers are kinda expensive.

I'm not sure if all of our existing applications (i.e. antivirus) installed on our existing xp 32 bits machines could be installed on a 64 bits machine with no problems.

Or would we need to purchase the 64 bit versions?

Thanks and help is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows XP 32 or 64 bits?

it is true 32 bit will only see about 3 gigs, however, companies are not beyond selling more than what is needed for the sake of a sale. It is done all the time.

drivers are free. Just go the specific laptops manufacturers website and see if they have 64 bit drivers, if they do, all you have to do is download and install - once you install a 64 bit os. However if they don't then there is a good chance your computer would not support 64 bit os for the specific operating system.

64 is the norm now. generally speaking 64 bit computers will support either 32 or 64 bit drivers and software.

one other thing to consider, if you want to upgrade from 32 to 64 bit, you will have to do a complete install of the os. You cannot upgrade.

Hey guys!

I'm here because my new Install does not have good Graphics. I used Driver Magician to transfer all the drivers, so all are from the Official Toshiba Install on the old HDD. I really don't understand this and it happened before. Before, I installed the W7 Officail iso along side of the Toshiba OEM Install, dual boot W7 with W7 to get some practice, and again the Vanilla install had bad graphics, what do I do? I don't want all that Bloatware from Toshiba, and removing it is a lot of work and risky, please don't make me go back lol.

I did not do any Updates yet, thought it would be best to get drivers installed first, would this be correct?

I already downloaded some updates to a USB that speed things up for new installs of Windows 7 so don't need that help now. The only issue I can see is that Realtek RTL8187SE Wireless LAN PCIE Network Adapter, but surely have some kind of Graphics Driver Problem? As you can see, there are also some Toshiba Drivers that might not have been needed, and perhaps causing some problems but I am clueless.

This thread is for use as a central repository of everything we wish is fixed or added to Windows 8.

1. Pure Desktop Mode. People have been wishing for a way to login directly to desktop with a Windows 7-style start menu. I'm pretty sure if Microsoft ever does this it will only be an option in 8 Pro or 8 Enterprise.

2. An improved method of using multiple displays. Having an application quit or something because that window lost focus doesn't cut it for us.

3. Have a Metro-style "Notifications Tray". it could be a subsection of the Charms menu, which would allow you to access currently running background applications (Like Skype or something)

I still cant find my key, so I just pressed escape when I got to the part where you should type in your product key ( its around somewhere & I 'll find it or if necessary buy a new key ).

The installation then continued without any problem & has installed a couple of updates since, with the attendant re-boots. Its all running normally.

Should I expect to be asked to input the product key at any stage or am I not being asked because its an 'official' Microsoft backup DVD ?

Hello all. I'm considering taking the plunge and moving up to Windows 8.1 Pro as the Windows port of my Linux+Windows dual boot.. I'm lucky enough to have a couple of those old Windows 8 Pro keys that were sold for $15 way back when. I used one of them on my laptop some time ago, which gave me a Windows 8 Pro (plus a free media center upgrade) install, which I then updated to 8.1 using the Windows Update option after being offered the ability to do so, so I know the keys are valid for Win8 and 8.1 via update at least.

That was quite a long time ago, and I'd rather not have to go through installing 8, patching months of updates until I qualify for 8.1 again, patch 8.1, and then subsequent updates after that if not necessary. Thus, I hoped I could download the newer Windows Upgrade Assistant which, I was hoping would give me the chance to create a Windows 8.1 Pro x64 ISO or bootable USB, as it did during the old Win8 version. Now, this does seem plausible except with one problem - it expects me to actually BUY Win 8 Pro at $199 before I'm allowed to download it.

Answer:Windows 8.1 Pro official ISO/USB for those who already have a valid key?

Googling the Technet/MSDN published hash for the ISO you need will often yield places you can acquire it from.

However you get it, always make sure to validate the hash of the ISO against the published hash on MSDN after you download it.

It appears that Windows 10 update notifications are coming through to people in the taskbar/system icon tray asking if you'd like to reserve a copy.

If you're one of the people that would like to disable it:

Windows 7:
1. Right-click the task bar

I recently downloaded W10 (too quick)
When I put a DVD into my laptop, nothing happens. I have to start the DVD app in W10 first and then, sometimes, he picks it up and starts the film or series. But al lot of times he does not. Or - strangely - he only does the 'intro's 'and then comes with the announcement :
Error: dvd can't be decoded (This is a translation, I'm Dutch).
Before I was so stupid to download W10 so quick, I had W7...never a problem there with DVD's. They started automatically in WMP.
Anyone has a solution?
Thx!

Answer:Why don't most of my 'official' DVD's not work in Windows 10?

Windows 10 does not include a DVD codec. This was to save cost, as they would have to pay for a license fee on every install of Windows 10 to the owners of the codec technology. If you had Windows Media Center, you can get a free copy of the $14.99 DVD Player Windows Store app.http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=LIk8yoFm
(I don't know the process)
But you can also use the free VLC Player app.http://forums.windowscentral.com/e?l...token=mSmvrm35

The laptop comes with windows 8.1 installed from factory, but I would I'm trying to downgrade the OS, can I get an official free copy of the Windows 7 OS and key from toshiba?

Answer:Satellite P50-B-10Z and Official Windows 7

As far as I know you cannot get it from Toshiba for free.
You machine is designed for Win8.1 and you got it with your machine. It could be that your machine is supported for Win7 64bit and Toshiba offers all necessary drivers, tools and utilities but you must install own OS version and pay for the licence.

When you buy new notebook the price includes hardware, OS and one valid licence for preinstalled OS version.

Before you do anything visit Toshiba download page and check if Toshiba supports Win7 for this machine and don't forget to create recovery media (DVD or USB) that you can use for original recovery image. After own OS version you will not be able to install it from HDD so it is very important to have this bootable recovery media.

i have been researching this for a lot of time, and still i cant decide.....i have been reading that vista lets the government spy on your pc, that uses a lot of ram when its on idle, compatibility issues, not stable.........and about xp 64 bits, we all know that xp is already the past and that we gotta move to new things but i like to hear from the experts on this community what do you think ? do you have any recommendations, any thoughts ?

I read that there are many benefits besides being able to see all 4Gig of rams with 64 bits.

I'll be greatly appreciate if you can explain to me step by step.

My US Robotic dial up modem only has 32 bits driver; please suggest a good one that work with 64 bits.

Please let me know anything significant I need to know before I switch?

Thank you!

Answer:Need help in 32 bits to 64 bits switching...

Hi Bruce2,

Welcome to the forum.

Since you are switching from 32 bit to 64 bit Vista, the safest route is to just backup any files you do not want to lose to a CD/DVD. You can just transfer them back when done installing the 64 bit. There is just to much of a difference to do a complete backup and restore between the two bit version with your programs and installers.

If you would like to make it even easier, have all of your programs and 64 bit drivers installation files on DVD as well.

Hi, I have a Travelmate B115-M and I have upgraded from Windows 8.1 Pro to Windows 10. The problem is that it automatically upgraded to Windows 10 32 bits. The drivers from Acer website are all 64 bits. I have tried it 2 times, the second time doing a clean install, but now I can't return to Windows 8.1 because it doesn't show the option anymore. So, how can I upgrade from Windows 10 32 bits to Windows 64 bits? Thanks in advance, John Lewis

HI everyone,

I wanted to see if you can help me with a problem that I have with my computer. First the specs of my computer:

core i5, intel dh55hc motherboard
2 modules of 4gb ram, corsair model CMX4GX3M1A1333C9
windows 7 ultimate 64 bits

I'm getting some bsod in random times, although now I see that there is a pattern... for example:

after a day of full working let's say 14-16 hours, then I start to close all the windows and when I'm going to shutdown then appears a bsod... so, it seems that it's in that point when I'm going to shut down...

I run a memtest with many hours let's say 12 hours and nothing so I'm not sure if it's a memory related problem...

Here is the latest minidump file, I hope you can help me

Hi

I have a simple question that I haven't been able to find the answer to by searching, so I'm hoping someone here knows.

Is there a way to tell if a Windows 7 installation is 32 bit or 64 bit simply by looking in the install folders/files? The reason I ask is that I have a few USB sticks that I made into bootable Windows 7 installations. It took hours, and I don't really want to redo it if I can help it. I didn't label which was 32 bit and 64 bit. I realize I could install them on a virtual machine and tell that way... but it'd be much easier if I could simply browse them and know that way somehow.
 

Answer:Windows 7 bits identification

Look for a SysWOW64 folder in %windir% (c:\windows)
If it's there, it's x64 Windows.

guys is it worth upgrading to w10m offical for the l730

Answer:Is Windows 10 official good for Lumia 730?

I would certainly think so. Backup, upgrade, take the next update (waiting for you already), reset (this helps it "settle in"), restore your backup and rock on into the future.
The integration if you are running 10 on your PC will get better. App data gets saved, Camera is pretty powerful. Reset protection. Moar UWP.
I say YES.
