How to Free Download and Install/Update Windows Drivers with Clicks

If your computer's hardware started freaking out, freezing up or behaving in weird ways, don't lay blame at the feet of a mischievous gremlin. Instead, it's much more likely that your devices simply aren't rocking the most up-to-date and compatible drivers.

How can you fix this? A simple driver update might just fix your Windows hardware woes.

We know, Windows update will include most driver updates but not all updates are available via Windows update. So how can you quickly and completely update the outdated drivers for your Windows system?

Manually update one by one from Device Manager? I will not recommend this here since there is better tool that can help you do this. It is DriveTheLife which allows to download, install, update, backup, restore and uninstall hardware drivers with ease. It is totally free, safe and clean.

Just download it to have a try if needed!

random incorrect messages on the screen of the dash monitor

If the dealer can't figure it out, chances are no one here can either. I would lay it at the dealers feet, as they are ultimately responsible, but if I had to guess I would think your car has a bad ground wire somewhere. The electrical interference will cause all kinds of weird gremlins to come out.

freeze ibm r52 ot start up

Try going in through safe mode w/networking (hit F8 when its booting into Windows) and see if it freezes up there... if its freezing there well something si seriously wrong with the OS or the hardware is partially to blame. If it load properly in safe mode then it would be a matter of determining specifically which part of the boot is freezing (freezes on Win XP load scree, freezes on Welcome, freezes after login, etc). The more you narrow down the scope of the problem, the easier it will be to help you. Try safe mode and let me know if its better or still freezes when going in that way.

hello my name is molly, i have a female quaker parrot named murial. she has been acting very aggersive ever since i have come home today . she has not been alone today but is vey angery. she is guarding the bottom of her cage and if anyone comes near her cage she will attempt 2 attack them .she is making loud noises and only staying at the bottom of the cage. my reltives think she is having a phanton pregnacy. please help !! from molly

Hi Molly,

FixYa is actually more of a product-support site than a pet-support site. To receive the most informed answers about Murial, you should probably seek out a site more geared towards birds.

That said, I have owned many parrots, and what Murial is doing definitely sounds like she's getting ready to lay eggs. Even if you don't have a male, Murial could very well lay unfertilized eggs. When female birds get ready to lay, they seek out a safe spot and start behaving very aggressively towards anyone who disturbs them. If she continues behaving this way and does not lay eggs, definitely seek help and look out for symptoms of egg binding.

If she does lay eggs, this behavior will continue. Eventually, she should abandon the unhatched eggs and return to normal behavior. If she doesn't, you will have to remove them to try and break the behavior (and get rid of a potentially stinky problem). She may lay again. Worst comes to worst, you can purchase fake eggs to replace the real ones with (sold online and at some bird stores).

For now, just make sure she has food and water, and isn't stressed out. It's also normal for birds in this state to have unusually large droppings (the result of holding them in for longer while sitting on the eggs or in their nest area). You may want to indulge her with some nesting material (or just a newspaper to shred).

Best of luck!

I have a hp dv5 1040e when press power key after 2second it turnoff before turnon cpu fan

In this case the problem may exist in two spots:

- Faulty motherboard
- Faulty power supply jack

Try turning your laptop on with the battery pack NOT attached.
Does it behave in the same way? If not then your battery is to blame. If it behaves in the same way, I'm afraid it'll be a costly fix.

surface area =300 square feet 25 year old ash

Ash fault? I think you mean "asphalt" but that's OK. You haven't given enough information to solve the problem, but here's what you need to do.

You know the area of the roof is 300 square feet (sq ft). You should know the area of each asphalt shingle, although that's the information you didn't give. When you know that figure, the calculation is very simple:

number of shingles needed = area of roof / area of one shingle

I don't know if this is a class problem, or if you really have a roofing job. Don't forget that on a real roof, the shingles overlap. If you do the calculation, the number you get is right only if you lay the shingles edge-to-edge. A real-world roof would need probably twice that number. Shingles come packed in bundles, and they usually tell you the area they cover. (By the way, 100 square feet is termed a "square".)
