You need to find out the make and model of your motherboard, go to the manufacturer's website and download vista device drivers for your motherboard - if they have them. If the board is pre-vista the manufacturer may not have vista drivers for it.

If you need help finding the make and model of your motherboard, go to this website - http://www.belarc.com/, download, install and run the program. It will give you all sorts of information on your system.

I have installed the disk "dolphin 1.5" Digital Photo Frame with key chain (photo viewer V208G2 and am unable to get the thing installed. I run Windows Vista


s.wingard,

Are you sure the Dolphin Digital Photo Frame is compatible with Windows Vista? When I searched, all I saw that was supported was XP and 2000. Once drivers are installed and they do not work, it's best to uninstall the driver (in the control panel in the system hardware configurations). Delete the driver and restart the computer with the picture fram plugged into the USB. You should be asked if you want to install the drivers. You then pick the custom location for drivers and browse to your drive with CD. You should be able to find the drivers somewhere within the disk (usually contained in it respective OS Folder e.g. WINXP). Load that particular driver.

Hope this helps,
Bill

Driver for ZTE WP560BD Qualcomm USB Modem under Vista


Put the USB stick in your USB port and wait a few seconds.

When there comes a popup choose folder view.

When not open your explorer and surf to the folder of your USB drive.

look for the installation folder.

You'll see a file named setup or install..
Stay on that with your mouse pointer and click right a menu popup.

Choose properties and choose compatibility here you can choose vista SP1, vista SP2
XP SP3.

when its done run the setup this will work to install the drivers and the aplication software.

I hope this will help.

Usb 2.0 windows 98


Go to  http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php  and read it carefully.  Download the correct version of nusb and follow the installation instuctions to the letter!  Be prepared to spend a little time identifying any software in your Add/remove list that you don't recognize - don't guess - and remove USB devices from Safe Mode, to be certain you don't miss any.
If your mobo is USB 2.0 capable, you should now have it; if it's not, at least you'll have a generic USB 1.1 facility.  You should not need to remove viewer or album software, just the USB drivers and devices, but if you're of a nervous disposition, backup your system before you start!

Driver Issues on Windows Vista Basic


As an adhoc solution you may try to download drivers for XP SP2, tell the driver installation applet to search for drivers from the folder you downloaded them to when it tells you this driver was not made for Vista tell it to install them anyway. It may not work but as this manufacturer is no longer in the modem biz vista is not supported by them at this time.

How to install XP on pre loaded Vista in HP Laptop


I bought a cheap Compaq laptop that came with Vista Home Premium. The speed was horrendous! Anyway, I received the same no hard drive found error. To solve the problem, I went into the system config (BIOS) by pressing F10 on startup, and turned off SATA hard drive support (its supposed to make the hard drive run faster), I rebooted, inserted my Win XP Pro disc and viola, it detected the hard drive. I would say that the laptop runs a good 40% faster than before. Vista is a big no no when it comes to low end laptops built for word processing and internet browsing.
