  • Switched to Linux, How do I switch back?

    Best answer: Doesn't sound dumb at all. Everyone, at least once in their life, needs to learn the hard way how worthless linux is as a desktop.

    Best answer: Doesn't sound dumb at all. Everyone, at least once in their life, needs to learn the hard way how worthless linux is as a desktop.

    Your computer came with an OS, and typically it came with a recovery DVD or the ability to create recovery media. I assume you were smart and did that when you got it? If so, boot off that media, and do a restore to factory. Piece of cake.

    If you did not do that, you'll need to contact whichever manufacturer the PC is and have them send you media. Unless it's windows 10, then usually you can just download the ISO from MS and use the media creator to put it on a thumbdrive and use that instead!

    Sorry, can't be more specific as you failed to mention the make/model of the PC and the OS that it previously had.

    Getting a Windows 95 Game to Work?

    When I was younger, I had a Winnie the Pooh disk game that ran on windows 95. I got a new one for the sake of nostalgia, but I can't get it to work.

    When I was younger, I had a Winnie the Pooh disk game that ran on windows 95. I got a new one for the sake of nostalgia, but I can't get it to work. My computer currently runs Windows 10, and it will install fine, but it will not run. The audio is scratchy and odd, and the video is weird: it's a black screen unless you run your mouse over where a button is, and the button will show up. (see photo). I try to run it in Windows 95 compatibility mode, but then I get an error saying it can't find one of the files (see other photo). I know the file exists, because I can find it following the pathway. I know the disc isn't corrupt - I bought another to make sure, and it does the same thing. I can't find ANY solutions online! Is there anything I can do, or is it just not possible? Thanks in advance!

  • I can't boot from my USB flash drive?

    I saved the ISO image to my USB flash drive using the Rufus portable program and my flash drive won't boot the program. I restart the PC and starts like normal, and does not boot. When I go to the UEFI/BIOS, I believe I have UEFI, I can't find the Boot Load Order page.

    Last night i got an error message saying Windows had experienced a problem and needed to restart. Upon restarting. I got the error message "no operating system found" no big deal or so i thought. After restarting it again, windows came up perfectly fine, but i could not get to the log in screen cause everything froze up. So, again, I restarted it. Got the "no operating system found" I re-logged several times, and continued to get this error. Again, no biggy, i keep an iso file on a 32 gig thumb-drive for this reason. I went into bios to make it so i could boot from the thumb-drive. I went through the prompts as directed and came to the page to select the partition to install windows. I only had one partition. Partition 0. the value of it is 0 mb. So naturally, windows cannot be installed on this partition, because it is too small. I cannot expand this partition, as that option is grayed out. I cannot create another partition either. I go into DOS command prompts. Two disks are listed 0 and 1. the disk one is my 32 gb thumb drive. I can clean disk 0, but there is nothing there to clean. Can anyone help?

  • Can two different operating system work in tandem on one machine?

    Best answer: Only if you have a virtual machine. I use Parallels to run Windoze inside my Mac. They share my directory and I can drag, copy and paste from one to the other.

    Best answer: Only if you have a virtual machine. I use Parallels to run Windoze inside my Mac. They share my directory and I can drag, copy and paste from one to the other. The default is that resources are allocated to whichever system is primary at any time although I usually suppress that as it tends to be annoying when suddenly your usb disappears.

    Otherwise it will be a dual boot and then resources can only be allocated to whichever system is running.
