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?

How To Transfer OEM Recovery Partition To A New Hard Drive
I run the system recovery with the build in recovery partition from Sony but the installation cannot be completed due to the hard disk failure. I want to replace with a new hard drive but also want to keep the original recovery partition because there is some useful software that is included. I have a external adapter to connect my hard drive through USB to my computer and have a software to recover the data in the recovery partition.

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.

Transferring OEM Windows 7 To New Computer?
my brother has purchased parts and is going to build his computer next week. His old desktop has Windows 7 installed on it and it is an Asus. Can I install windows 7 onto his new PC with his old CD key? I already have the Windows 7 on a disc. When it asks for a serial key, can he just enter in the one from his old desktop or will it recognize that it is a new computer and not allow it?

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..

Putting Retail Version On OEM Computer
I did a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate on my dell computer. When I was deleting partitions I noticed a Dell OEM partition. It was very small so I didn't delete this.

My thought was, if I ever wanted to sell this computer I would need to put Vista back on the computer and was afraid that my OEM disk would not work because I had deleted the partition.

I want to be able to put any computer back to the same state when purchased in order to avoid locking my Retail Version to one computer.

Does this little OEM partition have any bearing on the ability to revert the computer back to the original state?

If so, those of you putting retail might want to keep that partion available.

Will 64 Bit OEM Key Work For A 32bit OEM Install?
I Built a new computer for myself a while back and gave my old one to my brother... The thing is that I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit for him and I planned to get a key after the trial time was up but I never did it and he's getting tired of the reminders to activate now that the trial has run out and I can't locate a reasonably priced legit key so I was going to just install Vista back into the computer for him (It came with Vista Premium 64 bit OEM) but I only have a Vista Premium 32 Bit OEM install disk and I can't find a Vista 64 Bit OEM ISO online anywhere so I wondered if I could use the 64 bit key associated with the computer but use that key for a 32 bit install ????

Install Windows 7 OEM On A Mobo That Already Has Vista OEM On It?
I am having to install a new hard drive on a friend's computer. The thing is though, he doesn't have the install disc or even the sticker with his Vista code on it. So I wanted to know if it is possible to install a copy of Windows 7 OEM onto the new hard drive (nothing else in the computer has changed--same mobo, RAM, etc). Is this possible or will the mobo have issues with a new Windows OEM?

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?
