As long as you have the recovery discs, there will not be a problem putting the original operating system back on the unit.

  • Does the envy 6z-1000 come with the 32 gb ssd cache that other envy models come with?

    i ordered an envy 6z-1000 and i was wondering if it has the ssd cache that other sleekbook models come with. 

    Hi,
    See this: http://www.pcworld.com/article/261020/hp_envy_slee​kbook_6z1000_review_lustworthy_looks_soso_performa​...
    I don't think that there is an SSD cache. However, you should be able to swap the hdd for a proper solid state drive.

  • Did your Ipod nano come with a...

    Did your Ipod nano come with a little peice of plastic that you put into the bottom hole (where attach your usb cord) because i just finished watching my friend unpack his ipod video and his had a little "plug" (heres a picture... http://img.engadget.com/common/images/3060000000049788.JPG?0.8249034339397284)

    It's odd that mine says 8 and not 9 but this is for use with the new universal dock and hopefully other accessories from third party companies. http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=302272

  • Tried to update to newest version. I got error because i didn't have this recovery program disc that was supposed to come with the purchase but it didn't and now my ipod touch 8gb won't connect with itunes and is stuck on a connection with itunes screen

    I tried to update to newest version via pc. I got error because i didn't have this recovery program disc that was supposed to come with the purchase so it says, but it didn't and now my ipod touch 8gb won't connect with itunes anymore and is stuck on a screen displaying an itunes icon with a usb icon.

    oke i'm not done with the whole thing, but i'm doing that right now. Most of the advice I've already read didn't work and at a certain point it said something about shutting down programs then restart. but i notice that there are some pretty important system things in that list and i don't want to mess up my pc :s i'm not a pc genius... and because i'm dutch and my pc-language is in dutch I often have trouble translating and well... i don't always understand the technical stuff in all the articles -_-

    It sounds like your laptop is  possibly overheating ,which will cause a shutdown. Have you checked your cooling fan to be sure it is working? Cleaned the vents/ports with compressed air to increase airflow?

    I have abrobat pro 9 and cannot re download
    I have been told that it is no compatile with windows 7

    Hi ,
    That is absolutely correct .Acrobat 9 pro is not compatible with Windows 7 .It might lead to certain conflicts while the downloading is in process .
    You could refer the following link to get more details about the technical specifications about Acrobat 9 .

    If you are on windows 7 I would recommend you to switch to the latest Acrobat DC as it has a new and interesting UI along with enhanced features that will make your work a lot simpler .
    In case you have any other query ,please write back .We would be here to assist you accordingly .

  • Doe's the mac come with windows 7?

    Does the MAC come with windows 7?

    No. You can run Windows on a Mac in several different ways, but all require that you purchase Windows separately. Apple only supplies the Windows drivers needed to integrate with the Apple hardware.
    Windows on Intel Macs
    There are presently several alternatives for running Windows on Intel Macs.
    Install the Apple Boot Camp software.  Purchase Windows XP w/Service Pak2, Vista, or Windows 7.  Follow instructions in the Boot Camp documentation on installation of Boot Camp, creating Driver CD, and installing Windows.  Boot Camp enables you to boot the computer into OS X or Windows.
    Parallels Desktop for Mac and Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  Parallels is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    VM Fusionand Windows XP, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, or Windows 7.  VM Fusion is software virtualization that enables running Windows concurrently with OS X.
    CrossOver which enables running many Windows applications without having to install Windows.  The Windows applications can run concurrently with OS X.
    VirtualBox is a new Open Source freeware virtual machine such as VM Fusion and Parallels that was developed by Solaris.  It is not as fully developed for the Mac as Parallels and VM Fusion.
    Note that Parallels and VM Fusion can also run other operating systems such as Linux, Unix, OS/2, Solaris, etc.  There are performance differences between dual-boot systems and virtualization.  The latter tend to be a little slower (not much) and do not provide the video performance of the dual-boot system. See MacTech.com's Virtualization Benchmarking for comparisons of Boot Camp, Parallels, and VM Fusion. Boot Camp is only available with Leopard or Snow Leopard. Except for Crossover and a couple of similar alternatives like DarWine you must have a valid installer disc for Windows.
    You must also have an internal optical drive for installing Windows. Windows cannot be installed from an external optical drive.

  • My 2011 MacBook Pro 13 inch didn't come with an install disk?

    I opened up my MacBook Pro today as a christmas present. All was going well, until I wanted to do Boot Camp. Well, since the Windows support software download always starts to hang, (My internet isn't slow) I can't get the drivers installed. Windows is installed perfectly, however. I'm just really curious on why it didn't come with an Install disk.

    You should also make yourself a USB recovery assistant first.
