HP Still Touting Windows 7 PCs, Two Years After Windows 8 Debut

While Microsoft continues to update Windows 8 to address its critics, some computer makers have a different way to please fans of classic Windows: Just keep selling computers with the old software.

In an email newsletter Wednesday, HP led its sales pitch with the line “Windows 7 PCs on sale, just in time for school,” adding that Windows 7 is still available preinstalled on select notebooks and desktops. From HP’s website, more than a dozen laptops and desktop models running Windows 7 are still offered for sale.

HP is not alone in continuing to sell Windows 7 PCs to consumers. Dell still offers a number of consumer PCs running Windows 7, as do other computer makers.

While not unheard of — PC makers clung to Windows XP after Vista flopped — it does show that the industry still sees Windows 8 as a drawback, at least for some PC buyers.

It has been nearly two years since Windows 8 went on sale. Though the update was pitched as the future of Windows, Microsoft has spent the last couple of years finding ways to make the new Windows look more like the old one. With Windows 8.1, released last year, Microsoft added the ability to boot to the old-style desktop.

The company has promised the next version of Windows will go even further, allowing new-style apps to run from the desktop and bringing back a more traditional start menu.

As for consumer PCs with Windows 7, expect to see those on sale through Oct. 31, after which computer makers will no longer be able to sell them as a standard option, per Microsoft’s policy.

Microsoft hasn’t set an end-of-sales date for machines running the professional version of Windows 7, and business customers often have the right to “downgrade” their machines to an older version of Windows as well.

Microsoft giving away free Windows 8.1 for IoT fans

Microsoft has developed a “non-commercial version of Windows based on Windows 8.1” for developers who buy Intel Galileo boards.

According to , it is a “pared-down, proof-of-concept” version of the operating system that is designed to work specifically with that hardware.

Given that the Galileo board runs a Quark X1000 processor, that is essentially an enhanced Pentium 400MHz CPU, it’s interesting to see that Microsoft did not go down the route of Windows Embedded 8, but instead opted to customise “full-fat” Windows 8.1.

That is despite both being targeted at the same embedded, connected market commonly known as the Internet of Things (IoT).

A spokesperson for Microsoft commented: “The preview Windows image is another opportunity for makers and developers to create, generate new ideas and provide feedback to help Microsoft continue making Windows even better on this class of device”.

A number of retailers are now selling the soon-to-be-retired first generation of Intel’s Galileo for under £40, which is less than twice the retail price of its arch-rival, the Raspberry Pi.

Galileo was launched earlier this year as part of Intel’s Arduino-certified development boards based on its ubiquitous x86 architecture. The Windows preview runs only on the Intel Galileo Gen 1 with v1.0.2 firmware

Program compatibility problems

If you have issues with a program check its website or Google the program’s name, version number and your version of Windows to see if there are any issues with it.

Avoid installing system software not listed as compatible with your version of Windows, otherwise try installing it as normal; if it fails, Windows 7 may offer to apply compatibility settings to it – see if these work.

If the program installs but won’t run, right-click its program shortcut and choose Properties > Compatibility Settings. Select your old version of Windows from the list and click OK.

If this fails, try ticking “Run this program as an administrator”; in Windows 7 you can also click “Help me choose the settings” to gain access to the Program Compatibility Troubleshooter.


The System File Checker (SFC) tool enables you to scan for – and replace – corrupt and missing fi les. If you use XP you can use it to scan your entire drive, while in Vista and Windows 7 it can verify individual files and folders too. If you have an installation CD, keep it handy in case it’s needed.

Step 1. In Windows XP

Click Start > Run, type “sfc /scannow” and press [Enter] to check your entire drive for errors. Have your installation CD handy in case you’re asked for it.

Step 2. Vista and Windows 7

Click Start, type “cmd”, then right-click cmd.exe and choose Run as Administrator > Continue. Type “sfc /scannow” and press [Enter] to check your entire drive.

Step 3. Scan and replace

Alternatively, type “sfc /SCANFILE=path fi lename” and press [Enter], replacing pathfi lename with your chosen fi le – such as c:windowssystem32riched32.dll.


If your PC won’t stay asleep it’s often because a device is configured to bring it out of standby when triggered. Identify the culprit by pressing the Windows key and [R], type “cmd” and press [Enter].

Type the following line and press [Enter]: powercfg –devicequery wake_armed

Now press the Windows key and [R] again, but this time type “devmgmt.msc” to open Device Manager. Find any devices listed earlier, then double-click them and look for an Advanced or Power Management tab.

Check if the device is allowed to bring the PC out of standby – if it is, untick all the boxes that wake it. Click OK, close Device Manager and test it worked; repeat the process if necessary.
