Deactivate Oem Windows To Transfer To New Computer

Dec 21, 2009

I have a laptop which came with Vista 32bit 2 years ago. I have purchased and installed an OEM Windows 7 but the computer can't seem to handle it (only 1 gig ram). I'd like to revert back to Vista installation that is partitioned on the hard drive because I'm convinced it will be faster.

My question is can I un-mate that new Windows 7 installation from this computer so I can use it on one of my other PCs? When it was installed I think I chose automatic activation. Am I screwed out of $120 now with two Windows installations mated to the same computer?

If I reformat and revert to Vista on the laptop, will the Windows 7 installation install itself on another pc with no issues?

Transfer Of A HDD With Windows 7 To New Computer?

Sep 5, 2011

first off i have/had a Dell xps 710, and it originally came with vista, but my old old, hdd crashed, and i bought a new hdd, along with a new Windows 7 64bit oem version approximatly 5-6 months ago, installed it and everything was on the money!!

now this is where i run into my problem, now my motherboard has failed on me, and im in the process of building a new computer from scratch.. new everything except my hardrive(since its brand new 5-6 months ago), and video card...

how would i take my hard drive with Windows 7 64 bit oem version installed on it and use it on my new setup.. i really dont wanna buy another Windows 7 when i literally just bought it.. i read on here that somone posted doing it through "sysprep", but i cant do the first few steps since my mobo is shot... before i make this post anymore confusing this is my situation what should/could i do to make this work using my hdd with Windows 7 already on it along with my 4000+ audio files any thing else on the hard drive i could care less about...

p.s not sure if this is 100% accurate i have not read into it, but i hear Windows 7 unlike other win versions are now bound to mobo once installed.. if this is the case am i sh!t out of luck, or are their ways around it?

Windows 7 Transfer To New Computer?

Dec 11, 2012

I purchased a retail copy of Windows 7 Home Premium Edition which included both the 32 bit and 64 bit discs. I am currently using the 32 bit version on my computer. I am considering using the Update Anytime online to upgrade to Windows Pro. In the future, if I build a new computer, can I use the 64 bit disc for install, or am I limited to the 32 bit, since I have already used it? If I can use the 64 bit version, can I still use the key provided for the upgrade to Windows Pro for my old computer? I don't want to upgrade my old computer to Windows Pro edition if I can't transfer it to a 64 bit version I would need for a new computer. Would the correct sequence be to install the 64 bit Home Premium edition to the new computer, then use the key provided by Microsoft for the Pro version update given to me on the 32 bit update?

Subwoofer Will Not Deactivate When Using Headphones

Dec 28, 2010

When I plug in my headphones I can still hear sound coming from my computer, I checked and found out that it is actually coming from my computer's subwoofer, the only way to disable it is to actually lower the volume down to 0, even using mute will not turn off the subwoofer and will still play at the volume it is left at. I have tried searching for what could cause the problem, trying every possible combination of sound drivers that could be the source of the issue but I cant find the solution, does anyone know what could be happening? Windows has no information on these things and it seems to be something unique since I cant find a similar problem on google.

My dad and I are planning to switch computers and he would like to transfer all of his programs, software, and folders to my computer. With that, we would just simply have to switch hard drives. We could always set up a new OS and reinstall all of the components and drivers manually. Is there an efficient way of keeping all of his programs and folders while still be able to reinstall a new OS? Or would he have to reinstall all of them? We have an extra external hard drive at hand in case if we need it for backing up

Transfer Anytime Upgrade To Another Computer?

Mar 25, 2012

I ordered a dell laptop for my mom (xps15z). when i got it in i was on the fence about keeping it. then i decided to keep it, i used anytime upgrade on it to upgrade to windows 7 professional. After testing the laptop some more, im disgusted by the quality of it, not necessarily its performance (well besides the screen is just crap). The whole thing (even though some of it is aluminum or some kind of metal) is just plain cheap feeling. Everytime i go to open the laptop, my thumb gets caught on the some lame cheap chrome trim. (i dont see that trim lasting long). the lid/display is flimsy. it feels like a cheap toy. period. Im going to return it to dell and get her one of the samsungs that i tested out at some best buy nearby, its pretty solid feeling. its like a macbook or something.

anywho, what should i do in this scenario (about transferring the anytime upgrade). i believe the samsung will just have home edition installed, so i can use (or would like to use) this same key for it...
