Hello everybody. I recently bought an Everex Stepnote NC1503 laptop with Windows Vista basic installed. It only came with 512mb of ram (actually less than 448 with the shared video memory), and seeing how Vista runs very slow in almost every way even with the gig+ of ram, I wanted to install Windows XP Pro. I'm using the full version of XP that works in my other computers, so the cd is bootable. What happens is it gets to the regular blue "Windows Setup" screen and all the drivers are installing. Right before the main menu comes up, I get the blue screen of death saying something is wrong with the hardware. Its rather odd because I was able to get 2000 Pro on it somehow. I think its a bios problem, but other than that I'm not sure what to do. Any ideas?? Thanks in advance.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
