How to Fix Hardware/device Problems on a pc.

From my experience on fixya.com ive found that there is a very large amount of people that have this common problem.

Well if you have this problem Ive got the perfect tip to solve it.

1. IF YOU HAVE VISTA or W7 go to start > Control panel > Hardware & sound then device manager. Now you have a complete overview of witch hardware or devices don't have the latest driver or any driver at all. What you need to do now is make sure everyone of them are updated. If somehow the update doesn't work on a certain device/hardware search the name of it up on the internet, Something like "(your no driver device/hardware name) driver" sometimes it might take awhile but u will find it, and thats how you fix hardware/Device Problems for both Desktop and Laptop pc's. ;)

2 IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS XP/98/ME any of the older sometimes better OS's go to start > Control panel > System > Hardware > Device manager and then fallow through with all the steps with 1,

Please Rate This Tip. :)

hayward pro series s244 im getting large amounts of sand in pool and the system is drawing lots of air what could be wrong

Either broken lateral drain assembly or the manifold.

If fairly new filter, it could be that you have overfilled the amount of sand, as it is too close to the bottom of the variable position Multiport filter valve.

autocad 2014 can it run with ncomputing x550

I have no experience with ncomputing units, but I have done extensive work in graphics programs such are Coreldraw and Photoshop. The one thing they all have in common is they require large amounts of memory and fast processors, otherwise rendering can be a nail-biting experience. I suggest reviewing the users' reviews at Amazon, and any other computer technology website.

what is your problem with your ibm exactly? and what type of ibm is it? is it laptop or desktop if so please state the model so we can help you. but the most common problem ive experience with IBM Desktops are the AC97 Sounds. sometimes it restarts when installing and will not work because one of its components is not successfully installed. therefore the solution ive found is here:

Start Menu > Rightclick my Computer > click manage and click device manager.
Search for the audio component that has a yellow exclamation point at the side. double click it and click reinstall/update driver. then select "yes, this time only" then "automatically search for drivers(recommended)".
it will automatically install but will stop for it will look for missing file. for the missing files you can search via 4shared.com
But heres a link of files ive compiled for you this is all the files that its gonna ask so just download it here.

after that restart and it will fix your problem.
i hope this helps :)

Is there a product on the market that I can use to clean the inside of my Maytag dishwasher? We have very had water and there seems to be a hard crusty film build up inside. The dishes are not as clean aas they should be.


I have used Vinegar myself.
just placed a large cup full in the top rack and ran it through with no dishes in the dish washer.
and once the dishwasher was clean we used a small amount of vinegar to clean the stainless steel bowls and silverware and glass.

I have also used this product:
and it also worked..... although there are restrictions ( no stainless steel dishwasher tubs ).

I found this site for you:

I found this product for you as a bonus although I have no personal experience with it
