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.)

I bought Windows 7 Home Premium from a Retail store. I got two disks in it. One is of 32 bit version and one is of 64 bit version. Can i install only one of them or I can install only one? Please let me knows guYz.

A:Installation of Windows 7 Home Premium

You can install only one at a time.

If you have a 64 bit processor and more than 4gb of RAM then try 64 bit first. Drivers are a little bit harder to find with 64 bit, although most drivers will be in the installer or quickly updated via optional Windows Updates.

Don't activate it until you're sure you want to keep 64 bit and not change to 32 bit.

Hi guys,
I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7 Home Premium (64 Bit) back on to my laptop but can't find my installation disk. Does anyone know where I could download an ISO?
Thanks,

A:Windows 7 Home Premium Installation ISO

You can download a ISO image of Windows 7 at the Window Seven Forums.  You will need to burn the ISO image to a DVD to create a bootable disc.
 
This ISO download is legal, it was hosted by Digital River who is a distribution partner of Microsoft.  You will need a valid product key in order to activate this copy of Windows 7.
 
To burn a ISO file to a CD or DVD please downlaod ImgBurn and install it.
 
Insert blank CD or DVD into your CD/DVD drive.
 
Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc.
 

 
Click on the Browse for a file icon:
 

 
Locate the ISO file you want to burn, and click on the Open button.
 
Click on the blue arrow to start burning the bootable CD.

Hello All,

I am trying to run a Windows 7 Repair installation and the install is stopping because I have a more recent version of Windows than what is on my DVD. Which is true. I am running Window 7 SP1 and the DVD is just Windows 7.

I am following the tutorial here:

Repair Install

I basically chose an "upgrade" vs "custom" when I was asked about the type of upgrade that I wanted to run. The installation proceeded and then stopped and stated that I had a more current version of Windows than what I was trying to install.

Can I still run a repair install?

Thanks, Bill

A:Windows Repair Installation for Home Premium 7 64 Bit will not run

I've heard of this problem before.

Not sure, but I think the solution may be to download an ISO of Windows 7 with SPI, burn it to a disc, and then run the repair install from that disk.

Get the ISO from mydigitallife.info.

Let others confirm this as a solution. I'm just going from memory.

Hi everyone, I hope you can help me, this is a last ditch attempt at solving this issue, before I pay some one. I purchased a complete system from a shop here in nz, Along with the hardware I purchased a Windows 7 Home Premium pack.

I have built and installed many pc's over the years, and this issue has me stumped.

I built the system, and started to load the OS, after the first two installation bars, it went to the "starting windows" screen, where the 4 coloured balls turns into the windows symbol, and the system hung, so I goggled a fix, and preceded to turn off all non needed things in bios, and remove any non necessary peripherals, and pci cards. Reboot, and try reinstall. Success! or so I thought, now we get to the flower style splash screen with the bird, excellent!. NO Failed, hangs again. I restarted the install, this time in safe mode, hangs on disk.sys. So I tried a few more things, like new vid card, new HDD, new windows disk, new dvd rom, no luck. I try again, and I had some success, I got to the installation part, followed through with install to the part where you reboot, then it hangs again restart, this time at the black windows screen, with the pulsating windows symbol. I leave it overnight, just in case i am not being patient enough, and still no luck.

After repairs and installation of a new hard drive I am unable to connect with my HP LaserJet 5MP. I have installed a Gigaware 6 foot USB-A to Centronics Parallel Printer Cable and installed its software. I also got Windows to find the 5MP driver but removed the printer when I found it did not work and tried reloading and finding it again.

It seems that you cannot choose add a printer with usb as "Windows will find it". It does not seem to be locating it when selecting add a device. I mistakenly chose the first time to add a printer and that is when Microsoft did find the driver.... but again it says not to choose "Add a local printer if you have a usb"

The printer will produce it's own test page.

I've seen a few posts similar to this one, but none of the fixes I found could solve my problem.

I built a computer recently and am held up by the windows 7 home premium 64bit installation.

My specs are as follows:

Intel Core i5 4670k
2x8gb kingston ddr3 2133mhz RAM
Corsair H100i CPU cooler
Xfx 750 W fully modular PSU
XFX double dissipation R9 290X
MSI ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1150 Motherboard Z97 GUARD-PRO
Western Digital 7200rpm 1tb HDD

I am installing windows 7 home premium via a flash drive due to a lack of an optical drive.

I have gotten to various stages in the installation process, the furthest being the restart after copying windows files, expanding windows files, installing features, and installing updates. After the restart I see the option to open up my BIOS for a second, then the computer begins to load windows files. What follows is the windows 7 logo for a few moments, then the screen turns black, but is still on, and the computer is still running.

Initially assuming this was an amd driver issue, I removed the 290x which had been connected to my monitor via hdmi, and hooked up the monitor via VGA to my motherboards IO. I never got past the previous restart without the same problem.

I also often get stuck on the step: Copying Windows Files (0%)...
Whether or not the graphics card is installed.

If there is an apparent fix, it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit Installation Problems

Make sure you have written a fully intact ISO to stick from Steps 1 and 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Set HDD first to boot in BIOS setup, trigger stick using one-time BIOS Boot menu key, which may prevent the stick from starting after reboot. If not unplug it.

Hi All,

I'm new to these forums. New to Windows 7. But an old computer guy. So I know when I need to ask for some help.

I had an old HP laptop running Vista and the the video died but, the hard disk was still good. The computer itself was not worth repairing. I replaced it with a new Dell XPS running Windows 7. I took the old hard disk and installed it into an external USB enclosure. I can plug it into the new computer and transfer the data easily.

But what about the applications, application data, user settings, etc...

Any help and direction would be appreciated!

You'll need to reinstall programs.

I would also not import AppData settings as they are a corruption path into a new install. You'll want new settings for new installs anyway.

The exception of course is importing your mail and possibly settings for Windows Mail, Office outlook, etc.

Hello, I decided to start from scratch.

I have backed everything up. I managed to set up RAID 1 using two of the drives using the Intel RAID controller. I set up two partitions (Windows and Documents). I configured the Windows drive as a primary partition.

When I try to install Windows Vista Home Premium edition (using a Asus P5K-E/Wifi-AP Motherboard (Socket 775)), it hangs after the computer restarts for the second phase of installation.

Could someone please suggest what I must do to resolve this problem? Also, should I configure my drives as RAID or AHCI?

I just flashed the BIOS with the latest version, then deleted the partitions created by Acronis. I then deleted the RAID 1 setup and recreated it. Then went through Windows Vista installation setup. Got to the part where you choose where you want to install Windows and picked the unformatted C: drive. This went well, then I got to phase two (Installing Windows) again, when it hung once more.

My problem is the following : On my Dell laptop (Inspiron N5010) i installed 2 antiviruses (avira and norton) and suddenly after this, my pc kept crashing (blue screen and all).
The way i was able to fix this was simply by running diagnostics and restarting the computer.
After a week, the computer completely failed, the blue screen of death appeared this time, i had to reinstall windows 7. I didnt know how to, so we called an experienced pc guy who fixed it, using a windows 7 professional 64 bit (instead of home premium) disc as boot. All was fine, until a week after the guy had done this : The computer shutdown suddenly and i was unable to access anything, except the bios menu (and window 7 logo ).
I then used the same disk the guy used (he gave it to us) to reinstall the os.
I did the steps as he did (i promise), but the installation got stuck a 14 %, and said : Error 0x8007045D invalid file or...etc...
I searched on the internet and othe forums, and found the following answers :

Never run two AV's, especially when one is Norton Bloatware.

I would uninstall both as a test and install recommended Microsoft Security Essentials.

You'll need to run the special uninstall tool for grossly bloated AV's: Uninstallers (removal tools) for common Windows antivirus software - ESET Knowledgebase

If this fails then try to System Restore back to before you installed the two AV's when it was working correctly.

If that fails then download, install and decline trial for Malwarebytes and SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloads
then run full scans with both.

Folllow that with SFC /SCANNOW Command.

Hello emsetsfire, welcome to Seven Forums!


Have a look through the information below for some additional ideas and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.



   Information

As a start and to rule out format errors up front, boot the Windows 7 installation media to diskpart and run the clean command, once the clean finishes, exit diskpart and use the Windows 7 installer to create and format a single 100GB partition to do the install to.

If that does't work, after another clean, use diskpart to create, format and mark Active a single 100GB partition to see if that works, use Step #2 in the SSD/HDD tutorial for reference.

Once the clean finishes, exit diskpart and use the Windows 7 installer to create and format a single 100GB partition to do the install to and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

After you have copied out or made back-ups of the data you need to external media and want to start fresh with a clean installation or clean install with an upgrade version of Windows 7 have a look through the information below and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Hey All,

So I am pretty sure that my Windows 7 home premium installation has become corrupted somehow. I've just noticed thins not 'working' well and have been experiencing more and more BSODs over time.

I have ran many disk / system file checks (sfc /scannow), and it states that there are certain files that are corrupt but cannot be repaired.

When I try to run a 'Startup Repair' from my Windows 7 DVD it is unable to find ANY Windows Installations, which concerns me.. and therefore leaves me no options to fix.
Yesterday, I decided to try and do a 'upgrade' repair from the Windows 7 DVD in hopes that it would completely clean/replace all system files.

It took forever, but finally upgraded. All my files remained (which is what I wanted), however, nothing seems to have changed.

When I tried to do the startup repair, it still dosen't find any Windows installations on my system.. which makes NO SENSE.

Obviously I have a working windows installation, since if I take OUT the Windows 7 DVD, it will boot normally, and things seem to be working (other than a few weird glitches/ BSODs everyonce and a while).
Can you please help me with the following:

1). Is there some 100% method to see if my Windows 7 Installation is corrupted / not working right?

Why not invest now in a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which you can then save after setup as a backup image and never have to reinstall again.

You'll get and keep a perfect install to the extent you stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial.

Otherwise post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

You can sometimes force Win7 install to show in WinRe by running these steps How to run the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows.

But we need to make sure the correct partition is still marked Active so post back the screenshot first.

Recently I discovered these problems


*my encarta 2009 opens but when i open an article, it says "windows media player is not installed on this PC. go to blabla to download the latest version" (something like that) But WMP is installed and plays music well.

*firefox usually asks me to install WMP plugin and then asks for a manual instal or something

*yahoo messenger doesn't show sent messages in the im window. When I'm typing, its showing what i'm typing, but then I press enter and the message doesn't show. I get replies and they don't show too.


*internet explorer 8 and other trident engine browsers didn't open hotmail then I downloaded IE9, could it be IE9 disabled some addons or something?

I removed avast and installed bitdefender antivirus pro 2011 recently, but Ion think its the problem.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled encarta and THE ANTIVIRUS and lot of other programs that had problems then I discovered ymessenger and knew the problem is just not with encarta.

I've also put off and on windows media player in windows features so many times.

I deleted system restore points before I discovered the problem, so I can't restore.

I have been trying for a few months now to install my my Lexmark X1185 all in one printer (printer, scanner, copier-X1100 series), which I used to use with my Windows 98 computer, on my new Gateway Laptop which has Windows Vista Home Premium on it.
The computer's # is Gateway T-1625 Notebook PC, with Windows Vista Home Premium, and the processor is an AMD Turion 64 X2 Mobile TechnologyTL-60 2.0 GHz, 512KB x2 L2 Cache, HyperTransport technology at up to 1600MHz. The ports/ connectors are 3 USB, 1 HDMI V1.2, 1VGA, 1 Headphone, 1 Microphone, 1 Kensington Lock Slot, 1 AC Adaptor.
I just gave you as much info on the computer as I could. Now please understand that I know almost nothing about computers, and I use this mostly to surf the web and for fun. I've tried to download the driver (program cjrX1100EN.exe) from the Lexmark support site, and my computer wouldn't accept it. I've gone to the support site at Lexmark.com, and chatted with someone, and their advice didn't help me.
Isn't there an EASY way to get my computer to accept this printer? I'm basically computer illiterate, but this printer is pretty much in perfect shape. I hate the idea of getting rid of it, and having to buy a new one just because I bought a computer that has Windows Vista on it.

A:Windows XP installation as dual boot with Windows 7 Home Premium

The ancient XP CD doesn't have modern SATA drivers so can't see your hard drive. Easiest solution is to virtualize XP in Win7 using freeware like VMWare or Virtual Box.

The only way to insert the SATA driver if you can find it for your SATA controller if you still have a floppy drive SATA Drivers - Load in Windows XP Setup on Dual Boot or you can try slipstreaming in the XP CDr: SATA Drivers - Slipstream into Windows XP CD.

Then shrink the C partition, boot XP CD to create and full format the partition in the shrink space, install there. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

A:Installation Problem of MS Office 2007 SP1 Update on Windows Vista Home Premium

I would say that the simple solution is probably to do a repair install of Office 2007. There is, however a KB that addresses this problem for Office 2003, which may apply to 2007: How to troubleshoot common Windows Update, Microsoft Update, and Windows Server Update Services installation issues

Hopefully that helps.

However halfway through scanning for my music I knocked the keyboard and it stopped with only half my songs added

Using W 7 Home Premium. AVG 2011 Free. Windows Media Player 12.

Hello Everyone!

I am a little concerned about this question, as it may be construed that what I am trying to do may be called 'pirating.'

I have been loaned a CD-R from a friend who has copied 113 tracks lasting for 7.8 hours onto it, (El Barrio - Discografia, probably a compilation of all music from all 10 or 11 CDs)

I have my WMP 12 set to automatically rip a new CD.

The CD will play in WMP 12, but I can not find a way to copy it when I put it in the tray.

It shows all the tracks, and their names, but there is no "RIP" button at the top or any indication under any of the tabs how to rip it.

My conclusion is that WMP will either not copy a CD that has been made privately by somebody. (This is the first privately made CD that I have tried to copy/rip) or, there are too many tracks and WMP does not like this!

I would like to know if there is a way that I can rip it or copy it to my Music file.
If what I am asking is considered to be "Illegal" or "Improper" please inform me and I will withdraw the question.
Thanks,
colinito.

A:Problem after installing a clean copy of Vista home premium from Windows media centre

Could be hardware compatibility issue. You should call HP and see if there are any incompatibilities in vista that is related to your Webcam.

QuickPlay

What version of quickPlay was is it? QP version 2.3 is only XP compatible. Vista is only compatible with version 3.0 or later, therefore if the version you have is below this then an upgrade is required.

A:Replacing Vista Home Premium with Windows 7 Home Premium

When you get the Vista DVD, boot from it and choose Custom "advanced" installation. Then highlight the partition you want to put 7 on (preferably the Vista partition) then click "delete" (be careful which partition you choose) once the old Vista partition is deleted, be sure the new unallocated partition is highlighted and hit next to continue installing 7. Here is a screenshot, your partition structure may be slightly different.

Hey, Ive got the parts, and trying to setup my first self made system :D

The way pre-builts are I dont fancy another fail-box.

ANYWAY! ..

Ive got the following.

Seagate Barracuda 7200.11 500GB.(<- I think ...)
Gigabyte P35C-DS3R
4G Cosair XMS2 (2x2) [Upping to 8 later, dont know why..]
Nvidia 9800GT 1024mb
Q8200 CPU
Then the usual SATA disk drive, no floppy, a flash mouse, fans .. whatever.


Its boots up, so I try to Install "Vista Home Premium SP1 (OEM) 64BIT"

I select the language, product key is fine ..

Then it wont detect my SATA hard drive.

This has confused me :S

I think it may be I need drivers, but saying that the drivers should be on the motherboard already. So I put gigabyte's nice driver disk in, and it wont let me load any drivers.

Maybe im doing this incorrectly, but its my first ever build.

I have no idea whats wrong :(

Any ideas?

Thanks in Advance.


EDIT: My BIOS can see my Hard Drive :) Vista Cant. BIOS also tells me something about IDE :S But my Drive is SATA2. (Yes, im VERY new to this.)

A:Vista Home Premium 64x Installation

Here are a few suggestions. One, go into your bios and see if raid is enabled, if it is then turn it off. Then make sure that the hard drive you want to install to is in the boot sequence and if those fail you might try moving the drive to sata 1.

I ran into a little problem while trying to install Vista Premium 64 bit on my system. I booted from the dvd and I was prompted that If I want to install the upgrade version I need to install from Windows. So I canceled the install and and tried installing through Windows and that didn't work either. I was given a message that said "To install Windows try booting from the install media". How do I exactly do that?

Hi pso 20,

Welcome to Vista x64 Forums.

Going from a 32 bit ot 64 bit version, or the other way around, requires a clean install. If you have a upgrade version of Vista, this gets complicated just a bit. This will show you how to do a clean install with your upgrade version of Vista.

This is the third time I've been forced to reformat/reinstall since I got this computer, and I've had this same problem every time, but never to this extent.

I'm using the recovery disk (Vista Home Premium 64 bit), and basically what's happening is every step of the process is insanely slow. Currently it's been going for nearly 4 days, and it finally got around to the "Installing Windows" part (3 hours and it's still at 0%, though).

Also, I'm on the verge of just switching back to XP, but I used the backup feature built into Vista to keep all my stuff. Is it still possible to retrieve my files with XP, or do I have to do it through Vista?

Windows Vista is preventing you from making a common mistake. You cannot install over top you need to set bios to boot to cd-dvd drive before hard drive in order to partition and format and start over.

Hi guys.

I recently built my own computer from New Egg. I know a guy that works at an IT company here in town and he said he had a Windows 7 Pro key he could give me. I had already installed Home Premium and did the automatic upgrade to Windows Pro. I kept getting error messages saying the version wasn't valid, even did the key verification over the phone and I still got the error, so I did a fresh install of my Windows Home Premium and I've been getting BSODs ever since.

I did have my processor overclocked before I did the re-install, and I read that that could be the cause, so I reset the CMOS. I thought that doing that had fixed for a couple of days, but it has continued BSODing just about everytime I turn the computer on. It will BSOD 1-2 times, and then be fine.

Help is much appreciated

However, I get the following message before the installation has started: This computer does not have enough space for temporary files. Windows needs at least 440 megabytes (MB) of free space on any partition for temporary files. To install Windows, free enough space and restart the installation. Error code: 0x80070103.

My PC has a 500Gb hard drive with 449 Gb of free space. The only software installed is the trial version of 7 Enterprise. The machine also has 4 Gb of memory.

How do I create the free space that Windows needs for the installation ? Thanks for any help you may provide.

I installed the HP J5508 offficejet all-in-one printer software in my new samsung laptop having W7 Home Premium 64 bit.

The problem is whenever I unplug the printer, it disappears from the printers list and whenever I plug it back (usb 3), the computer automatically installs the software again after searching for the latest software. This process takes more than 5 minutes and is annoying.

Any fix for this?

A:HP all-in-one printer installation problem in W7 Home Premium

Why do you keep unplugging the computer from the printer? It is normal for windows to try to install a driver when a peripheral (printer) is connected. If everything is working fine. Just tell it no.

Or are you having issues with the printer?

Try reinstalling the printer software.

Make sure the printer is off while installing the software until you are prompted to turn the printer on to complete the install.

What are you using for software, version, etc?

My 8yr old XP based pc is in quite a mess and I am hoping that a custom install of 32bit W7 Home Premium will help bring it back to life! Most of my problems seem to come from my system32 folder and various driver issues (BSOD is an almost daily event!). Over the years I have installed and removed far too many bits of freeware etc and would love to clear the whole lot out and start again! I've checked hardware/driver compatibility for my system on the microsoft website and elsewhere and all looks good in that department. However I have two questions about what a new OS will actually do:

1. Will a full custom install of 32bit W7 Home Premium provide me with a brand new shiny replacement for my somewhat corrupt system32 folder?

2. Will the install have any effect on a secondary internal hard drive? I use this secondary drive solely for file storage (mp3, video, pics etc) and am wondering whether I need to back up this drive aswell as anything I want from my C:\ drive or should it remain unaffected.

Thanks.....Octorod.

A:W7 Home Premium custom installation queries

A custom install will create a new windows folder and replace everything that was on the drive with win7 . . the old installation and files will be placed in a folder named windows.old so that you can retrieve any data you need to after the installation. After Win7 is up and running you can delete the windows.old folder to free up space.

Be sure and do a defrag before doing the installation

Installing win7 should not effect the data on the second drive, but it is always a good idea to disconnect any drives other than the one you plan to install on, just to eliminate the possibility that you format the wrong drive.

Be sure to run the compatibility test before you install . . that's a pretty old machine to install win 7 on
