  1. Vista SP1 Checksum Boot Fail

    SOLVED: It appears to have been a faulty stick of ram. Have changed out the ram and it works.
  2. Doing a fresh install on a laptop. Install Windows Vista Home Premium. Install SP1 from standalone installer. It installs and restarts, then does the boot updates. Then it restarts again and before I get any sign of Windows I get this error "The file is possibly corrupt. The file header checksum does not match the computed checksum." I ran a startup repair and it found nothing. I did a system restore to before SP1 and it did nothing. I ran a full chkdsk on the drive and it found nothing. I re-installed Vista serveral more times after that and tried different downloads of SP1 and each time the same error appears after installing SP1. Any ideas? Need more info then please ask!

  8. Locking Window Preview

    I seem to remember in Windows 7 Beta there was this feature of when you hover over an icon in the taskbar a preview window would open.... like it does in the current version.... but there was the ablilty to lock or pin the preview so it didn't vanish after moving your mouse off it..... This was useful for watching movies whilst on the net or writing a document......... Is there a way to do it in the retail version?? Or was it something i imagined????? Any more info you need i'll provide the best i can! Thanks in advance for any help

  10. No Display Output

    The problem seems to resolved itself..... and now it appears a fualt stick of RAM was to blame......... altough it did do the same with working RAM from another system....... weird..... anyway this can now be closed and thanks for the help
  11. No Display Output

    I've recently built myself a new machine and sold the old bits to my dad I take his graphics card and his RAM and transplant into my old machine..... i also bought him a new PSU Put it all together and wire it up correctly and get no output for the moniter, it stays in standby...... I take back the graphics and RAM and try his machine again.... works fine.... I asume that the MB has died somehow as it's over 3yrs old and never really been shut off and i've been storing it for him for about a month and it might have gotten knocked around So we buy a new MB and Processor and fitt it all back together, just booted it up and........ nothing a blank screen.... I know that the Graphics work, RAM works, MB and Processor not the issue as they are brand new, and the PSU is also new, never been used..... Any Ideas???? Any help would be great, happy to give more details if needed aswell Cheers

Any help would be nice! Need more info? then just ask
  14. The Default Gateway is not available

    I'm suprised that people are still getting this problem as i had it with an early Beta and when all Network Drivers we very early betas aswell I would have thought by now that between nVidia and Microsoft they would have sorted this.....
  15. The Default Gateway is not available

    I have since gone back to vista but i did manage to fix it.......... but i used the Beta Drivers.......... but if you say you have tried them then ok Only other thing is to Get the beta driver and fully uninstall the current drivers then install it fresh hope this helps
