windows 7 starter upgrade?? missing features question

Q: windows 7 starter upgrade?? missing features question

I just got an Acer Aspire netbook with w7 starter. Although I plan on using it for just the basics, Im told that 7 Starter doesn't different backgrounds, DVD playback (via an external DVD drive, which I'd have to buy), and Windows media layer.

My question: What do I need to run Windows 7 home? OR can I achieve what I mentioned above without upgrading?

what I got:
OS:32bit win 7 starter
intel atom N270
1gb memory
storage: 160GB HDD

-I don't know much about this little computer, but I got a day or two to take it back of it wont do the job. Any advice would be great.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello, I had the same problem yesterday after upgrading from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10. After searching the web I found this solution (source: http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c01114052#SelectiveUpdate) which worked for me:      Step 4: Selectively update the imaging device driverIf a webcam driver is recognized after running the scan for new hardware in Device Manager, verify it is the latest version of the driver. note:If there is an HP webcam driver on the product page for your model and OS, use that driver, otherwise use the Microsoft USB Video Device driver.In the Device Manager, under Imaging Devices, expand the list of webcam drivers, right-click the webcam driver, and then select Properties.Figure : Webcam PropertiesMake a note of the existing name of the webcam driver (Example: HP Webcam), as it may change after the update.On the Webcam Properties window, select Update Driver....When prompted, select the option to Browse the computer for desired driver.When prompted, select the Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer option.De-select the Show compatible hardware checkbox, select Microsoft in the Manufacturer pane, select USB Video Device in the Model pane, and then click Next to install the desired webcam driver.Allow the installation of the USB Video Device, and then click Close.View the Imaging devices option in the Device Manager to verify the presence of a webcam driver.   Hope this works for you too. Regards,

I have got myself into a bit of a mess.

I installed my version of windows starter on my mom's PC which was previously running vista. To see if it improved the performance or if the laptop itself was rubbish. It did so I purchased an upgrade to windows home premium. When I enter the upgrade key it says I need the current key is invalid for upgrade and that I need to phone a number. Does this mean the software I brought is useless. I didn't want to buy a disc as I had read that using a upgrade key meant everything was kept. Is there anyway I can use the software I've brought. The computer recognises the key as an upgrade one.
Thanks.

You can not use the Windows Starter from your Notebook on your mother PC.
Doing so would be a invalid upgrade.

It might be on the windows install disc. But; then again; there is also a chance that microsoft did not include it in the releases of windows 7 as quite a bit of people use other programs. etc. to access what telnet could.

In an interesting support note that appeared alongside today?s announcement about the July 29 launch of Windows 10, Microsoft has spelled out which features from previous Windows versions it will remove or deprecate when you upgrade. There are some expected entries?Windows Media Center, for example?but also a few surprises.

Here?s the rundown of deprecated functionality.

Windows Media Center. Microsoft announced a month ago that it had killed Media Center and would not support it in Windows 10. So this one shouldn?t be surprising: If you have Windows 7 Home Premium, Windows 7 Professional, Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 8 Pro with Media Center, or Windows 8.1 Pro with Media Center and you install Windows 10, Windows Media Center will be removed.




https://www.thurrott.com/windows/win...en-you-upgrade

A:Here Are the Features Windows 10 Will Remove When You Upgrade

As someone who never used Windows Media Center, I cannot say that I'll miss it. If I ever need a media server at home, I'll just install Plex or Roku on an old computer laying around and use it that way. As for the DVD playback part, no matter what application Microsoft comes with, I'll keep on using VLC, and I'm sure a lot of users will discover that program and start using it. Really easy alternative.

Good thing that the Desktop Gadgets are going to be removed. Most of them had their utility by being "network"-based widgets which grabs information online. Since that update which removed their network capabilities since they could be exploited, they are pretty much useless now.

For the preinstalled games, I wouldn't mind if they just put them back built-in, but you can disable them via the "Turn On and Off Windows Features", like they did in Windows 7. It was good that way.

No comments on the Windows Live Essential part, but I still won't use OneDrive (unless I find some amazing reason to use it).

And we can already see the rampage happening with the Windows Updates for the users of the Home edition of Windows 10.

I bought an Acer Aspire One netbook with Windows 7 Starter on it, and I have a Windows 7 Ultimate installation DVD that I want to use to upgrade my netbook's OS. I put the DVD into an external DVD drive connected to my netbook with a USB cable and started the installation wizard. I chose the "Upgrade" option and the installer said that I need to use Windows Anytime Upgrade for that. The problem with that is that I don't want to buy a new license, since I already have this DVD. How can I upgrade my netbook's OS from Windows 7 Starter to Ultimate with the DVD I already have?
Thanks in advance.

A:Upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to Ultimate with regular DVD

Use Anytime Upgrade: Type "Anytime" in Start Search box to start the Process, insert your Ultimate Product Key, the extra features will be unlocked in just a few minutes.

Be sure to make your Acer Recovery Disks first, or save a Win7 backup image so you have a path back to the licensed OS on that machine. You may decide you want to move your retail Win7 Ultimate to another machine. You may also find a cheaper Ultimate Anytime Upgrade key.

I have a Samsung Netbook which came with Windows 7 Starter and I am finding that I miss the extras of Home Premium Retail which installed on my Desktop PC. I have the Home Premium installation disk which I used, but as far as I am aware it is a single use licence.

The Anytime Upgrade is available on the Samsung, but at a cost of ?70 from M$.
Is anyone aware of a more cost effective (legitimate) method?

Having Googled for it, I come up with this:
Microsoft Windows 7 Anytime Upgrade, Starter to Home Premium (Licence only): Amazon.co.uk: Software.
Anyone know of anywhere better?

A:Upgrade Windows 7 Starter to Home Premium

Yes, buy the home premium family family pack- you'll spend more initially but you'll get 3 retail licenses @ about $50 each.

If you do decide to do that, save an image of your starter install first.

I'm quite sure this is not illegal since the upgrade is automatic and happens without a choice.

I had starter on my netbook and tried upgrading it by using the app on the OS itself but failed.

One day I was searching for TV tuners and came across Media Portal. During the course of the installation it tells you it is better to have windows aero enabled for "tear" effects. I dismissed the dialog and installed it.

I check the OS later and voila it's upgraded, apps such as windows media center and all games like chess titans etc came out of nowhere. Also all the themes etc. I checked SYSTEM and found the OS name changed to home premium from starter.
Try it !

Welcome
If they are some of the power hungry games, you will probably crash. The mini probably meets the minimum requirements and that means not a lot of memory etc.

Hello Jim,

Yes, you should be able to either buy Windows Media Center directly through Add Features, or enter the key number for WMC through Add Features when it's working.

I'm not certain yet of exactly how the steps will be for just entering the purchased number, but I would imagine that it would be similar to how it was in the tutorial below for the free preview of WMC in the W8 RP.

I see where one of the performance enhancements recommended is to disable unneeded "Features" in the Program & Features section of Control Panel. The impact of disabling some of the features is obvious, but in some cases it's not so obvious whether I need to leave a feature installed or not based on how I use my system and the applications that I have installed (for example, Microsoft.NET Framework, Remote Differential Compression, etc.). I have tried searching for a description of each "Feature" and how to determine whether it might be needed or not, but have been unable to locate a good discussion or description of each "Feature". Can anyone direct me to a source of this info. Thanks.

Mind this is an OEM version installed by my system builder, but I'm wondering where are all my options?

So I recently bought a product key for Windows Anytime Upgrade, so I can get rid of Win7 Starter on my netbook and get Windows 7 Home Premium. I start the Anytime Upgrade software and it works great, but fails as the upgrade gets around 90%, at which the upgrade process "fails" and restores the OS to Windows 7 Starter. I've looked at a few guides that gave solutions, but I've had no luck. Anyone have any ideas on how I can get this working?

Try rebooting to run it again to see if it corrects itself.

Next try a clean boot: In msconfig>Startup uncheck everything (add AV back later), then do the same in msconfig>Services after Hiding all MS services. Reboot several times to make sure nothing sneaks back in, or turn it off in its Program Preferences or Uninstall it. One more reboot, try AU.

A:XPS 8700, Windows 10, Realtek Maxx Audio Pro features missing?

Here is how to fix the problem and go back to your old Realtek HD audio driver on the XPS 8700.  This will restore the Maxx Audio Pro feature.
* Open the Control Panel and select System* Click on Advanced System Settings (on the left)* Click on the Hardware Tab* Click on "Device Installation Settings" and then click on "No, Let me choose what to do" and "Never install driver software from Windows Update". Click Save Changes. This step is important or else Windows Updates will always write over the Windows 8.1 driver* Open the Control Panel- Programs and Features and select the Realtek Audio Driver and uninstall it* Restart the system* Install the Windows 8.1 Realtek audio driverXPS-8700_Audio_Driver_N4TKF_WN_6.0.1.7016_A00.EXE* Restart the system. Be sure to select your Realtek Audio as default audio device if you have more than one device on your computer
This worked for me.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

You can only upgrade from Windows 7 Starter to Windows 7 Ultimate by the Windows Anytime Upgrade method.

If your computer is running Win 7 Starter it shouldn't have any problem with Win 7 Ultimate.

Hello,
I bought a netbook a while back with Windows 7 Starter.

I had an extra upgrade key of 7 Home Premium from one of those 3 pack family upgrades so I upgraded the netbook and put the key in.

I want to reformat the netbook back to Windows 7 Starter and just use it's original Starter key it came with. Home Premium bogged it down too much.

My question is...

Is there a way I can reuse the upgrade key of 7 Home Premium on another computer or did I waste the license by putting it on the netbook?

Thank you in advance for your help,
Mogoamerica

I am having an issue where the windows features under Internet Information Services/World Wide Web Services/Application Development Features will not install.  Specifically those which are clicked on when one clicks on ASP.NET.  All necessary versions
of ASP.NET are installed.  IIS 7 is installed.
In the Event Log there are two errors which are shown in conjunction with this problem.
1. Unable to install counter strings because the SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ASP.NET_64\Performance key could not be opened or accessed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the Win32 error code.
The error code is: 020000000E0E0000
2. Installing the performance counter strings for service ASP.NET_64 (ASP.NET_64) failed. The first DWORD in the Data section contains the error code.
The error code is: 02000000C9120000
I am thinking that the performace key is somehow not accessable due to some security feature.

Andre,
I appreciate the replies, but it has nothing to do with running as administrator.
I solved the problem by turning IIS off all together and reinstalling it with the features I needed.

A:Upgrade Vista AND Win 7 Starter?

Hello Dave,

If you could find one, you could get a Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack Upgrade that will allow you to install and activate on up to 3 computers at the same time. This can save you a litte bit.

Here's a Google search of some retailers showing that they still have it:
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Family Pack - 3 PC in one household


If not, then yes you will need to have a separate license for each computer that you install it on.

Hope this helps,

FIrst that I was able to have the Areo view with the 32bit version which is now not available (the transparent dialogs and other stuff.) Also when I did a control-alt-tab when I was playing video I could see the video in the application change dialog. I no longer have that feature either. Both the 32bit and 64bit were sp1.

a. 2 'checkoff boxes appear below the start/stop dates: 1) 'keep updated with...' and 2) 'send me status...'. I understand their significance to many and could easily live with these absent a way to remove.
b. IMPORTANTLY, there is no 'checkoff box' for a reminder nor is there an associated reminder date/time?????

My question is, when displaing all software installed and choosing more columns of information to display, they don't stay. For example, choosing Location column. Getting out of the installed programs list and then returning to it, the Location column is gone.

Is there some what to get the columns to be persistent?

Thanks in advance.

A:Question about Windows 7 Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features

The Programs and Features listing is shown to you by the Explorer app. Each time that you open/close the Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a folder (or a special view/list like the Programs and Features listing), Explorer tries to write info to the registry about how Explorer was showing you that folder. Windows (file) Explorer tries to write this "how to display a folder" info at other times besides just closing an Explorer window, but I'll not go into all of that.

Microsoft has not solved the problem that happens when these places in the registry get too big. When this happens, you may see the problem that you are experiencing - that of no longer being able to store the layout/view/column width/column selection/... info in the registry.

Below is video that I made showing registry keys being made. (I'm not suggesting that you mess with the registry.) Notice that new keys are made when visiting the folder named Temp. Deleting this Temp folder does not remove those registry keys. If you close Windows (file) Explorer while viewing a compressed folder (a ZIP file), the Explorer app tries to make keys so that it can remember how it last showed you that folder. If you delete or move that ZIP folder to another location, the original registry keys remain. So you can see how this area of the registry can fill up.

edit: I had to make this video again. I hope that I covered all of the original points.

One solution is to remove all of the entries/keys in the areas of the registry that attempt to track this info for the Explorer app... then rebuild them over time as you visit various folders (and special views like the Programs and Features listing). You can safely remove the entries by following the steps detailed in this tutorial: Folder View Settings - Reset All to Default

I opt for a more draconian solution: I change the permissions on those registry keys to prevent any app from being able to add entries in those areas; thus, the areas never get too big. But changing the permissions will cause other problems that I just live with.

Might help us to help you if you told us what you have tried. Most members do not have clairvoyant powers.

What is the version number of Excel that you are using? Don't know if there are other starter versions besides 2010.

Among the things you have tried, have you specifically tried changing the border settings around selected groups of cells and between the cells in a selected group of cells?

I upgraded this lunchtime from Windows 7 Starter to home premium via the Windows Upgrade Advisor which said my netbook was compatible, I carried out the upgrade via the windows upgrade advisor. It worked fine for a while but I was having trouble trying to set up my LAN and wireless connection to work together in order to get onto xbox live via BT Openzone. After a while the advice from the microsoft website was to carry out a system restore, so I did and used the recommended date, however on trying to restore the ugrade failed and reverted back to windows 7 starter. Tried again and had the same issue. Please help.

Hello forum.

On my way to downgrade Win10 back to 7, on my Satellite Toshiba U840, found out that my serial number for windows 7 was for Starter Retail version.
That is odd because i remember that my windows 7 was 64bit and supported all of the windows features,
in comparison to what Starter Retail provides. I ran alot of graphic programs on 3 years ago...

Is it possible to upgrade the retail version to any Win 7 64 bit version?

Thank you for your time!

A:How to upgrade Win Next Starter Retail 32bit To any Win 7 64bit ver

Windows 7 Starter was only available in 32bit.

Most people will be happy with Windows 7/64 Home Premium.
To go from a 32 bit Windows 7 to a 64 bit Windows 7 you will need to do a Clean Install.

We need your system spec to get a idea whether a 32 or 64 bit would be best.

Please use this tutorial by Brink to help you fill in your specs.

Hello.

I have a question about the "Add Features to Windows 8.1" feature, formerly Windows Anytime Upgrade. As a student, I can buy a full retail copy of Windows 8.1 Pro for only 60 euros, which is a very good deal. I plan on installing it on a desktop which already has 8.1 Core installed. I do not want to reinstall Windows on it, so I would rather use the Add Features feature. So my question is, does Add Features take retail keys or do I need to use a key specifically made for it?

Wish to uninstall programs but the only tabs present in programs and features are the "organize" and "view" tabs. there are no "uninstall", "change" or "repair" commands.Where have the "uninstall" etc. command tabs gone to and how do I get them back?message edited by Oleneygah

A:uninstall tab missing from programs and features in vista

I came across this problem a while ago and eventually found it was an issue with a corrupted registry so the first thing to try, if it's only recently happened, is a System Restore. If that doesn't work then the only option I found was to use a 3rd party uninstaller like Revo or possibly CCleaner (though I suspect the latter uses the same registry entries so may not work). You may find that it's only older programs that have the problem, newer ones will probably still have the option and programs you reinstall or install fresh will also be ok.

Just upgraded to Q2002 from Q2000. An important feature in the reporting option seems to be missing. If I form a report such as "how much did I spend on medical" I get a list of all the various doctors but I do not get subtotals for each of the doctors (this is just an example). Subtotaling was a feature on Q2000 that now seems to be missing on 2002. It does not make sense that Intuit would remove features so I was wondering if there was an alternate way to get the subtotals back.

Has anybody noticed that the machines that used to run well with 1gb wont even update anymore? It keeps spitting out a error code when checking for updates and when you look it up they say its related to running out of ram when doing anything windows update related. Even with 2gb of ram it will pop up saying its out of ram when downloading and error out again.

I know the limit is to prevent starter being used on higher end machines but come on? If you release updates that end up using more ram why dont you up the limit?

The problem is, after I installed it I went to "turn windows features off and on" to check it and play music in my wmp
and it was not there! There is no "Media Features" option like it is supposed to have. I tryed:

Reinstalling, did not work because windows said it was there already
Rebooting, nothing changed,
Running wmp Fix,
Ran SFc /scannow, nothing was found

I would really appreciate if someone really good came and said that I missed something really simple.

After the upgrade I no longer see the ability to connect bluetooth devices, nor do I see the bluethooth driver listed in device manager. I downloaded and installed the Windows 10 bluethooth drivers from the support site (2cyb01af.exe), but it still does not come back.I see a "Unknown USB device (device descriptor has failed) driver in the device manager. The properties showWindows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)A request for the USB device descriptor failed. I suspect this is the driver for the bluetooth but I am not sure. Has anyone done an upgrade and had this issue.

A:Bluethooth missing after upgrade to Windows 10

It looks to me like that model comes with either Atheros or intel bluetooth.
 
Atheros drivers are https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles/2cyc01af.exe

It looks like you tried intel and it didn't match the device, so you probably have atheros bluetooth

I recently upgraded my spare computer to Windows 7 and cannot find a compatible Ethernet Controller driver within the system.

The Hardware details from the Device Manager are
PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_0900&SUBSYS_053A0A0&REV_91
I also need a Multimedia Audio Controller Driver, for which the details are PCI\VEN_1039&DEV_7012&SUBSYS_020FA0A0&REV_A0
Are there any compatible drivers available for these?

Hello!

It has been a long time since I have been on these forums, but I would really appreciate some help.

My parents 5 year old HP Touchsmart was struggling with Vista so I had the great idea to upgrade them to Windows 8. Well, this has turned out to be a really big ordeal.

First, I selected the option to keep all personal files and such, and when Windows 8 was usable, only the most recent year or so of photos from their digital camera was available, many, many pictures are missing. I tried the Windows.Old folder, did a general search, tried unhiding the files, tried using Recova, to no avail. Any ideas in this regard?

I am accessing the harddrive through an external harddrive case due to the computer immediately getting a virus upon being upgraded to 8 (was it dormant in Vista and then it ran on 8 ??) and the computer crashed completely.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My first guess would be that the photos that are missing were not in the users documents, pictures folder
I cannot understand how, with respect, you did not take the precaution of backing up the personal data first

A:Pinned icons missing after upgrade to Windows 7

The method used for pinning items to the taskbar is to right click them when they're opened. Then, once you've pinned a program to the taskbar you can right click it to see subsets of recent items that you can also pin to that item. I

In other words, files are pinned to the context menu of whatever APP opens them.

In the picture below you can see that I have three items pinned to the explorer program and the explorer program pinned to the taskbar.



When you drag down a url, it will still pin the item, but it will pin it to the context menu of the program that opens it.



If you want to see a normal right click menu for the pinned program, simply Shift+Right Click

Okay so here's the deal. Before when I still have the RC version of Windows 7 there wasn't any problems, but as soon as I upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium some of my drivers went missing. Windows Update managed to fix those except one, the Coprocessor wasn't able to be installed. I'm not sure but I've been having occasional choppy or laggy video when I'm watching movies or playing games.

I would greatly appreciate it if anyone can help me out.
