Upgraded my motherboard on Windows 7 PC. Cannot restart windows.

Sun, 07/08/2016 - 10:17pm


Windows 10 attempted to upgrade my Windows7 PC.

My PC is now very slow, so I upgraded my motherboard.

Now windows will not start.

Running Startup Repair several times has not fixed the problem.

What can I do?

Windows 7 not genuine

Fri, 05/08/2016 - 10:04pm


My netbook is telling me that my copy of windows 7 professional is not genuine.

I still have the DVD/product key and the box they came in. I bought this about 3-4 years ago but have not used my netbook for a few years.

How do i resolve this?

Here is the output from the diagnostics tool.

I feel like I am on a Microsoft merry go round. Suddenly my MS Outlook, and the other apps in MS Office 2010 are telling me I need a new activation. I put in the code I set it up with and it tells me it is invalid. This is my attempt to get help from MS and I am going in circles. HELP!

old copy of XP

Wed, 06/07/2016 - 1:48pm

I had problems with an old Computer. I had to format the drive and I installed Kubuntu.

I wish to go back to XP so I can play a bunch of old games I have saved.

I have an old retail version of XP but I don't have any means of checking to see if it was installed on this computer. Is there any way to check?

Thank you,

Seriously,  You are microsoft and you don't have an online complaints option.  Snail mail is the best you can do.  Well, to those who want to look.  There is an entire list of attorneys employed by microsoft.  You can find their phone numbers by searching for the attorney's directory on the Washington State Bar Website.  I suggest a few million pissed off microsoft victims start leaving messages on their voice mails.  Fill those voice mails up until they can't get their legal work done.  Then we'll start a class action suit for everyone screwed by the windows 10 upgrade.

Make Windows 10 leave me alone

I don't want to upgrade to Windows 10. Please make these messages go away.

Windows 10 Upgrade

Tue, 31/05/2016 - 11:00pm

I have had to reinstall my OS from the beginning on my computer which means I had to install Windows Vista (Ugh!)....I installed it fine, I upgraded to Windows 7 SP1....not a problem. Now, I'm trying to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 10 and I'm being asked to enter the product key I already entered that came with my computer/ won't accept it.

What do I need to do?
