  6. Windows 10 Free Upgrade Message

    I've yet to use Windows 10. How has it worked for you? Are there a lot of bugs for MSFT to work out or does it run smoothly? I have MSFT Office 2007. Will W10 work with Office 2007? Thanks for the reply. Eddie

  9. Reinstallation of Windows 7 on New Hard Drive

    I got it working. It was my driver cd. Once I loaded the driver cd it finished installing. Thanks
  10. I can't seem to be able to complete the re-installation of windows. I inserted the system recovery Windows 7 home premium DVD and followed all prompts. It formatted the drive and did a partition. It worked fine until it got to the point where I got a window named "Windows Setup". It had the message Windows is now setting up the following items. Preparing driver installation Installing Drivers Preparing software installation Customizing software Checking AC power Verifying installation The first item "Preparing driver installation: was check marked. When it got to the 2nd item Installing Drivers (It seemed to freeze at this point) I let the machine continue to see if it eventually would complete this section and it seemed to do nothing. Eventually I got a window that gave me the option to "restart". I did not mouse function and I tried hitting "enter" but nothing worked so I hit "Ctrl , Alt and Delete and restarted it this way. When it restarted I eventually got the following message "Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows, restart the installation. I did try the reinstallation a 2nd time and got the same results. I tested the hard drive and it passed all tests. I used the seatools for DOS to test it. Any help on how to resolve this is appreciated. Thanks.

  14. laptop needs a new hard drive

    I ran the seatools test (DOS version) and it fails all tests. I contacted HP and they wanted to sell me the following for $90 plus shipping: 250GB SATA hard disk drive - 7,200 RPM, 2.5-inch form factor, 9.5MM thick. I think that's a bit high in my opinion. Will any SATA 2.5 work? What about SATA II or SATA III? are those compatible with my system? How can I determine if they are? I also thought it was supposed to have a 250GB HD but when i opened it up it had a 100GB HDD. I bought it from my coworker and she bought it at Walmart last year and swears she's never replaced it. Pretty good machine overall. Has Windows 7 and 3GB Ram. Thanks
