Hey Guys,

The Blue Screen of Death is back and I can’t delay any longer. I ordered another computer on Wed May 8th and it arrived today on Fri May 10th. Amazon has really put the pressure on for fast delivery. I unwrapped it and then did some grocery shopping. I am going to wrap some meat for the freezer and then I will start checking it out. It is supposed to be on MS Win 10. I will start to find out what problems that is going to bring. I will be back!

Thanks Jack.
Yeah two anti virus programs, can conflict. Even when there really not doing much.
Panda, seems to have notifications, a lot of them always too, like you said.

I know things are in your good hands. I just wish I could help you out more.
Looking forward to your progress report. :)

    Hello Mark,
    Sorry to be so slow in answering you. I make progress in one area and stop dead in another. I will give you a fast reply and get into a fuller one later. I think I got the blue screen problem on the Dell Dimension (XP) solved. It looks like I was getting problems because Malwarebytes and AVG antivirus were on at the same time and clashing with each other. Since I turned Malwarebytes off and uninstalled AVG, I have not had any more bluescreen problems. I vaguely  recall reading cautions about having 2 antivirus programs running at the same time. I replaced AVG with PANDA but PANDA keeps popping up ads for updates so I think I will try to put AVG back on.
    On my Optiplex (Win7) I am trying to install Teamspeak client. As soon as it tries to run it crashes. I will have to work on that. My time is in short supply and I will be giving you the whole story shortly.

    Thanks for the interest,    Jack

Windows, needs most of the major motherboard chipset drivers installed correctly in order for windows to properly ID your system. That's probably why it took a little while for it to except activation.

Windows Update installs them, or you can get better ones from the MB manufacture if they still support the motherboard on newer Win OS systems. The system will run better fast and more stable with proper chipset drivers, and all of them rather than none or generic support.

If you goto Win10 from Win7 then I'd check your Motherboard maker to see if they have updated drivers for it.

    I am having a mixed sort of day. I was out walking at dawn and all the puddles were frozen over. Winter is still here! I got back home and turned on the computers, I had another mug of coffee and finished the crossword. When I checked the Win 7 install, I found that the activation message changed to 27 days to go. I decided to try the product key again. Guess What?? It worked perfectly and I now have a fully authorized Win 7 install. Not all is going well, The XP computer crashed with the blue screen. I thought that the hard drive that wouldn’t read was the cause. The blue screen is back. I think that I will try to disable the useless DVD drive and see what happens with that.
    I put the bad drive into the docking/clone device and plugged it into the win 7 system it recognized it and gave a choice to try to correct the failures. After a while it had it working. I was able to hook it up to the laptop and retrieve all the critical data that I had not backed up. I have not installed any office programs on the win7 system yet.

    So far I have experienced a lot of aggravation but I have not suffered any major loses. The Opiplex system ( Win 7 ) is sort of locked into a 75 G Bit limit on the C Drive. The Dimension system ( XP ) is using 150 G Bit C drive. When I get fairly safe clones of each system I will start to agresivly chase down the cause of the blue screen crashes.

    Hello Dumo / Gus & All,

    This is a bad day for me to get much done about bringing my computer desk into top working order. I am behind on taking care of my bills and other correspondence. I need to clean/tidy up the place. The good wife used to do that and she never seemed to put any effort into it. I am still learning! Put first things first, get my priorities in order, Yes Sir, Yes Sir!!! My # 1 son and his NRA friends are having a fund raising dinner affair this evening. My wife and I always attended but I am going stag this year. My # 2 son will be there also. Anyway, today I will put housekeeping chores first and tomorrow I will see how I can squeeze computer stuff in.

    I will jot down a few little items to keep the conversation going. This morning I scared up two deer while I was walking through the woods just after dawn. I was surprised at how long and how far I could watch them bounding away. The underbrush has not started growing back yet and I can see long distances into the woods. The puddles from recent rains were covered with skim ice, winter is still with us. I am tired of the cold and I look forward to spring and seeing the new green growth.
    I will list a few problems that I am dealing with as far as my computers are concerned. The computer that I am trying to install Win 7 on is my secondary computer. It is a Dell Optiplex. This is the 2nd time that I am trying to put Win7 on it. The 1st try was from a DVD and it went on fairly easily. I had to put the product key in while I was installing and I had the system running fine. It said that I was running out of time to activate it. When I tried to activate it, it said that this install exceeded the limits and I am fairly sure that shortly afterwards the install no longer worked. I have a Sata drive docking device that allows me to clone a system hard drive. I took that hard drive and re-cloned it to the XP install ( Back where I started ). I have a downloaded Zip copy of Win 7. I made a DVD copy of the files and began to install it. It never asked me for the product key. I ended up with a hybrid-working install of Win 7. I had it on for a few days and as I was finding my way through the control panel, I ran across a section dealing with activation. It said that I had 1 day left to activate it. I tried to use the Product key that came with the Win7 download and it rejected it as invalid.. I found a article on the internet that showed how to use a Batch file to take care of the activation process. . I had just completed that process when the main computer ( Dell Dimension ) crashed with the Blue-Screen-of-Death. The hard drive never worked again. I ran the optiplex today and it still says 1 day left. I don’t know if it would have turned off or if the batch file did the job. Anyway it is still running and if it still runs 2 days from now, I will consider it to be fully operational.
   I put the original hard drive back into the Dimension computer and am using that right now. I had ordered a few Sata hard drives and when I get one, I will clone this drive a use the new one to try to put Window 10 on this machine.

    So! I am up and running. I need to do a lot of restoring. I did lose some stuff but nothing really critical. I will now go and start paying bills and wrapping meat for freezing. Life is a constant series of problems and challenges. It can be interesting, maybe even fun if you look at it right.

Hey Gus / Dumo,

It's good to see you again. I got the good word from Microsoft that they are ending Win7. I felt that I would use Win 7 to learn how to put in a good install and then do it right with Win 10. Right now I am having all sorts of problems because my main computer hard drive died. I have a lot of stuff that I have to restore.
I got a working install of Win 7 but it will not activate.
