Deactivate Oem Windows To Transfer To New Computer


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?

Way To Transfer Programs Loaded On Old Computer To New Computer?
Would like to get general thoughts on the best way to transfer programs from old computer to my new 8-core Windows Pro 64-bit(new install) computer. One of my areas that I'm concerned with is that several of the programs I'm wanting to transfer were purchased over the internet & downloaded with no physical media involved. Otherwise, I would just do the install via the install cd's

Subwoofer Will Not Deactivate When Using Headphones
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.

Deactivate / Activate Network Card
Each time I put the PC on, I can't use Internet before I deactive then reactive the network card. When it's run fine, I have a domestic network but when I start the Pc I have two networks, the domestic one and a new public one.

As soon as I desactive - reactive the network card, the public network desappear and all is ok as long as the PC stay on..

I'm a brand new user of Seven so perhaps it's just a simple tune I didn't do..

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...

Windows 7 Transfer To New Computer?
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?

Transfer Old Programs, Information Onto New Computer?
Joined a few days ago, just got a new computer, hasn't arrived yet. Had posted a purchase template and other things but little help so did the best I could with that decision. Bought my great old computer long ago when I knew nothing at all. I got it second hand from a third party, and didn't get any install disks. Can anyone tell me what old material is transferable to the new computer, and how does one do the transfer.

Backing Up Programs To Transfer To New Computer?
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?
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...
