Booting Vista Home Premium by species8350
Hi, I can't boot Vista Home Premium. According to the diagnostics there is no problem. But all I get is a black screen and no messages. When I try to boot into any other mode, for example Safe Mode, I get the same black screen. This machine has only 512MB of RAM, is this the reason Vista will not boot? If not any suggestions appreciated. Thanks.

Windows Vista, bad rep by Walt
How did Vista get such a bad rep? I've been using Vista for about three years now and have had far less trouble with it than my wife has had with her Windows 7. Was it that so many people Had XP, many still do, and it was so dependable?

Error 1719 Installer Service could not be accessed by Computer Simplicity
Trying to load a Samsung PC Sudio from supplied CD Tried to download over the 'net with the same error report. Is there a Fix out there which deals with this? I can't find the msiexec in the place it is supposed to be. I don't want to tinker any more. (Tried some of the advice which failed) All the "help" and "Fix" programs I have tried were loaders

Search Index - Rebuild or Restore Defaults by C and A Bredt
Running Vista Home Premium. Searching for filenames that are in My Documents no longer works unless I check the box for Include hidden, non-indexed, and system files. But then searches take over 3 minutes. It used to work fine. Should I Rebuild the Index or Restore Defaults? Thanks, CB -- C and A Bredt

My Vista is working fine but…I am on my mission to find out what is on my hard drive. Be gentle with me I am retired and not an expert, just and old EE who thinks this should work better. A few months ago I purchased a new IBM T61 Laptop (Vista Home Premium) to replace my IBM R32 Laptop (XP). I got a 100 GB drive since my old laptop had 80GB with only 35 GB used I thought I would be okay....

Computer no longer multiboots by Ken Springer[_2_]
I hope no one gets upset with the crossposting, so if you reply, please reply/followup to all, not just the newsgroup you see this post in. Thanks. I've lived "dangerously" for a long time and never used any back up software. But I do things differently than most when it comes to storage of my data, so I've never lost any data matters, or to any great extent. Operating systems, well,...

filenames vs object names by sobriquet
Hi. I don't know if this applies to windows vista as well as windows 7, but in a dutch version of windows 7, windows automatically seems to translate filenames from english to dutch. This results in weird effects, for instance, two files apparently having the same filename in the same folder. When examining the file properties, it seems that there is a difference between the objectname and the...

How do I know what kind of a problem and how to fix it? So far I was always able to do it, but this one is beyond. Apparently System restore caused my current situation. I am on...
