Install Standard VGA Driver

Mar 26, 2008

I did an XP update and installed all the Windows updates. Now I cannot install my Radeon SE-DT graphics drivers. I get an "installation failed, try to install standard VGA drivers" note after the most current downloaded driver installation program runs InstallShield. I'm running on an ASUS A7V motherboard (1011 BIOS) with AMD Athlon processor and 768 MB of Crucial RAM; 2GB Maxtor drive. I'm using LiveOne Care for security.I'd lime to know if the motherboard chipset drivers can be updated from within Windows without doing the floppy disk boot.

I'm running graphics on the VGA save mode and it is goofy scrolling down a screen watching the waves as the data clunks in. Can anyone suggest an easy install? ATI Radeon has been no help so far. By the way, Device Manager shows no video display components from which verify or update drivers.

Changed HAL Driver From ACPI To Standard PC"causing Non Boot

Jan 23, 2007

I changed the above setting in my device manager hoping to fix an annoying stutter problem caused with media player when my wireless signal would go out of range. I remembered changing the irq settings in win2k to solve conflicts on that system, but found that the options is not available in xp. A quick web search lead to a site which reproduced a knowledge base article from microsoft. Only, the article was truncated in a way such that the dangers of said action were not published. The drive boots up to the XP OS screen, hangs, blue screens, the end.
With my problem drive set up as a slave, is there a way to change the settings back, or manually cut and paste Hkeys, or system folders or the like to restore the drive to it's previous state? Seems logical same computer with the same installation of xp pro sp2

Programs Will Not Install / Goes Back To The Standard Cursor

Sep 8, 2006

I finally broke down and went from W2K Pro to XP Pro on my new build. Almost all my apps have installed just fine but two that I need will not. They are NetObjects Fusion 7 and Adobe Elements 2.0. Both are fairly new, around 2002 or 3 releases and both are rated for XP but once I launch the setup.exe the hourglass shows for about 5 seconds and then goes back to the standard cursor. I checked the Task Manager and in both cases setup.exe is loaded and running and I have to End Process to try the setup again but the same thing happens each time to both apps. They both installed fine and I've been using them for years on my W2K Pro machine.

How Do I Install An Old Driver?

Sep 4, 2008

I'm trying to install an old driver (VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller) for my firewire card. When I try to install it through the device manager, there's only an option to update the driver so when I try to install the old one it says it can't find a better match than the one I've got already (generic cardbus controller).I've tried uninstalling the current driver but I can't find a way to manually install the old one. I'm running XP Pro SP3 on an HP 530 laptop.

USB Device Driver Won't Install

May 19, 2005

I have a USB device (Motorola V3 phone) and when connected it the driver did not install properly (something like there was an error installing the device) and the only option was to close the device wizard (no back option) I tried this on all my USB ports. The problem now is that when I plug the phone into a USB nothing happens at all - it doesn't try and load a new driver and since the driver it installed before didn't work it doesn't use that.How can I remove all trace of the phone from the PC so that it will have another go at installing the driver (I used the CD that came with the phone before, but I have since got it to work on another PC by letting it search the web for a driver).

Razr V3M Driver Won't Install

Oct 5, 2007

I recently bought a Motorola Razr V3m from Verizon. Everything works great except I cannot get the drivers to install to transfer music from the Vcast Music Manager to my phone. When I plug in my phone, it says "Found New Hardware Razr V3c". I don't know if this is because the V3m uses the same drivers, but none the less, it won't install. It will end up saying " Cannot Install this hardware". If I plug in my phone while it is off, it will detect it as "Motorola USB Modem" and complete the installation, but 30 seconds after turning it back on, it then again detects it as "Razr V3m". I have tried to install on 2 PCs, one running WinXP Pro, other running WinXP Media Center. I am using the CD that came in the "Vcast Music Essentials Kit".

Printer Driver Will Not Install

Aug 29, 2005

I have Windows XP SP2 on my laptop. I have been using an Epson C66 printer with this laptop for about 2 years. I recently had a problem with the printer so I went through the troubleshooter process and was instructed to contact Epson. I did, and when I sent the error script that I receive, they told me to contact Microsoft. I have been searching the articles for patches, fixes, etc but am not having any luck. When I try to reinstall the printer (with the printer cd or manually), the installation appears to be going through and copying files and then I get a message that the installation can not finish. The error script says: "The I/O operation has been aborted due to a thread exit or an application request."

I am having a heck of a time with this. I am trying to install Windows XP on a Lenovo R60e that has a SATA hard drive. I cannot for the life of me find the driver. I cannot seem to find anything resembling this driver on Lenovo's "Driver Matrix" or anywhere else on their site. Is there a generic one out there that anyone knows of? I want to slipstream this into an XP install, but I can't do it without the driver.

USB Wireless G Adapter Won't Install Driver

Jun 14, 2008

The reason this is urgent for me is because I am leaving to move into my new apartment tomorrow morning, and once I am gone from my house, pretty much any technical problem will not get solved (I am sure many of you here are familiar with this position).My brother's computer was full of viruses so I reinstalled a fresh copy of windows, and everything is working great.But I go to install the Westell wireless G USB adapter for internet, and the driver will not install.I have installed the utility first - it then asks to connect the device which I did. The new hardware thing pops up, and since I don't have the installation CD (lost it, but downloaded the files from Westell's website), I browse to the folder of those files, and it searches and says it cannot find the driver.

Printer Driver Won't Install On Computer

Apr 30, 2010

I'm trying to get my Canon IP8500 printer to work with my Samsung NC20 netbook which is running Windows XP.Usually I simply plug the printer into any Windows XP computer and it'll automatically install the necessary drivers. However, when I plug it into my netbook and instruct Windows XP to automatically search/find and install the drivers, it can't find any.So I've gone onto the Canon website and manually downloaded the drivers, but when I try to install them via the setup.exe it says that a newer driver is already installed, and aborts the setup.The weird thing is that there definitely isn't a driver already installed, because I've even gone into device manager and uninstalled the printer/driver before trying again.

Existing Won't Boot After Driver Install

I recently added a new sound card to my old computer. I have had this computer for nearly 3 years with zero problems. I installed a new sound card and installed the drivers. I now get through the mobo boot screen, then blackness, no BSoD, no Windows splash screen, nothing, just black. The computer is continuing to send a signal because the monitor does not go into power saving mode, but nothing happens after that. I've gone into BIOS and it is recognizing my HDD and my CD-ROM. I have tried booting from the disk, but the same thing happens, and yes, this is a legit copy made by MS.

HP Webcam Driver Fails To Install

Sep 7, 2009

Purchased an HP Deluxe Webcam KQ246AA to use with my Dell 5100 laptop, with Windows XP Home Edition O/S, SP3, Intel Pentium 4, 2.66GHz CPU, and 512 GB RAM. Loaded the HP supplied software CD, and then plugged the cable into a USB 2.0 port, but it failed to connect to the webcam. The hardware wizard gave the following message: �Problem installing the hardware: HP Deluxe Webcam KQ246AA. An error occurred during the installation of the driver.Have tried multiple times to delete and reload the software. Located the driver by clicking on Computer, System Properties, Hardware, then Device Manager tabs and found the driver under �Other Devices� which shows a yellow question mark. Is this the proper location for a device connecting to a USB port? Please advise. The General, Device Status tab contains the following message: This device is not configured correctly (Code 1). To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver. I�ve tried to reload according to the prompts, but with no success.

Shared Printer Via Network Shown Error Of Install Driver

Nov 29, 2008

Brief synopsis:I recently did a new Windows XP install (after a crash). Now I cannot get my printer to install. The printer is a SHARED printer (HP Deskjet F380) on another machine on the network. The printer was previous installed on this machine before the crash and reinstall of WinXP.After nearly 2 hours on the phone w/ HP support, it's been determined (by HP support) that somewhere in the XP install, a missing XP driver is keeping this install from properly allowing any printers to be installed. The printer will 'appear' to be installed, but any attempt to print brings an error saying printer drivers aren't properly installed.

I always assumed bits was small b and bytes was capital B. Is this true? 100 MB - mega bytes. 100 mb - mega bits.Is a 56k modem 56k bytes or bits per second?Can I assume everything is bytes unless bits is specifically stated?

Standard Account Getting Reset Whenever Unused?

Aug 2, 2010

OS: Windows XP SP3
Realtime Security Software: Avast!, ThreatFire,
Non-Realtime: Spyware Blaster, SuperAntispyware Scanner (Free Edition), Malwarebytes' Scanner
Firewall: COMODO Firewall Only

My Standard Account got reset for the 2nd time. Firstly, when I didn't use my account for 4 days once I came to log on I realised that 'Personalized Settings' was showing up at the top left hand corner. This came again after I didn't use the account for one day. By reset I mean, the background wallpaper reset to default and the desktop folders not showing up. But when I went into 'Documents and Settings' in my administrator account (which didn't get reset), all the folders were showing up in my C Drive/Documents and Settings/ folder. Once I right-clicked on a folder on my system when this happened for the first time, my system froze. The system also froze when opening any file. This started happening a few weeks after I had installed COMODO Firewall which might be a coincidence even though I don't think it is but all these error messages/dialog box popped up on my account, roughly like 'Invalid or corrupt jarfile...' but on the administrator account none of these errors showed up when this happened on my account. In addition, this issue also happened when I changed my account from Standard to Administrator but this didn't change anything. When this happened for the first time, to solve the issue I made a new account and then copied all my files/folders over from my old account to the new one but because this problem has happened again, I predict that this will keep on happening again on every new account I make. I have also run malware scans which didn't detect any viruses.

EMachines PC - Restricted To Standard User

May 20, 2006

eMachines PC, less than one year old, running XP Home (ugh)While in the "Owner" administrator account, I attempted to change the user rights for my daughter from "Restricted" to "Standard user". I used the "control userpasswords2" screen rather than the standard User Accounts control panel provided with XP Home.I immediately received an error message, stating something like "this account type cannot be found" or "this account type is not supported".No big deal that, but what occurred after that stymies me. My daughter's account is no longer visible in either of the account management control panels, and is also no longer visible in the Welcome Screen. All of her folders still exist.I attempted to re-add the account, but the system (perhaps wisely) prevents me from doing that, stating that the account still exists. Using the XP Home User Accounts control panel, I turned off the Welcome Screen; user login now uses the oldskool screen within which you have to enter the user account name in one field and the password in the other. My daughter is able to login that way.
