Re: Windows 7 System Image

Thanks for the reply. I used it recently and it worked also but not quite the way I thought. I have an external drive which I planned to use for images. After the image backup I created a folder and put the backup in that folder. Windows could not [more]

Re: "PC Mover Pro"

I bought an earlier version but never tried it. XP has it's own file transfer utility and if you want to transfer data to Windows 7, I believe Windows 7 has it's own utility that can transfer from XP to Windows 7. For programs I just re-install with [more]

Re: Incompatible keyboard/PC?

aj,

I've run across some PS2-USB adapters that plain just don't work. I would try from a different source/manufacturer. I have some that don't work but others that do. Wish I remembered where I bought them.


Good luck,

Re: Asking again about monitor

The only things I could suggest is to verify all connections are tight, try to install the video drivers and try default settings on the monitor. It would be good if you could get another monitor or try your monitor on another [more]

Use the W8 drive w/Classic and when ready either disable or uninstall Classsic.

Re: Looking for drivers

Use the old drive. new laptop may not have W7 drivers.

You could try DL the W8 drivers based on the Dell service code and see if that works.

Wendy,

If the Windows 7 computer is 64bit, you may need to use the universal drivers if the XP machines are 32 bit. This is on top of what has already been suggested.
