How to Install Drivers to your computer ?


A device driver refers to a program (software) normally developed by the hardware manufacturer to allow it to interact with the computer system. This driver program is used by the different components and applications in the machine to execute a specific task like printing, DVD reading and writing, or connecting to the Internet among others. Device drivers are generally specific to the underlying Operating System and hardware, which means that the correct version must be installed to ensure proper operation of the supported device. You can do this by either re-installing the original driver for your device or to upgrade to new drivers.
Here are the steps on how to reinstall a device driver:
  1. Log on to your computer as an administrator
  2. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and click Manage
  3. Under System Tools, click Device Manager
  4. In the right pane, expand any of the categories to find the hardware you need to reinstall. Right-click the device, and then click Uninstall
  5. In the Confirm Device Removal dialog box, click the OK button
  6. If you see a message asking if you want to restart your computer, click Yes. You can also manually restart your computer
  7. After the restart, Windows should automatically detect and reinstall the hardware.
Upgrading drivers for pre-existing devices
  1. Open Windows Device Manager. In the Device Manager locate the device you wish to update the drivers for.
  2. Right-click the device and click Properties.
  3. In the Properties window click the Driver tab.
  4. Click the Update Driver button.
  5. In the Hardware Update Wizard point Windows to the location of the updated drivers on your hard disk drive.
  6. Once drivers have been installed, reboot.
After you computer has restarted, Windows will use the previous version of your driver. If you're still having difficulties getting the device to work properly, it's possible you're encountering a hardware issue and not an issue with the drivers. Refer to the troubleshooting steps for your hardware device for additional help and information.

It's a message keep popping up on the screen about sonic updated manage some like that


This is about Sonic software installed on your PC. If your PC is new then just update it. Please use this link: http://tools.roxio.com/support/dell/isum_hotfix.exe
If you're not using it and really wants to get rid of it, then all you have to do is to just disable it. To disable the Sonic Update service that starts up when you computer starts, you can go to Start, click on Run, and then type in MSCONFIG and pressing Enter .
Next click on the Startup tab and you’ll see a list of all of the processes that start up when your computer starts up. You can uncheck any service to prevent it from loading during bootup. For the Sonic software, you need to search for startup item named sgtray, or that has the words Sonic Update Manager or Update Manager in the path for the command or location. Also, if you see isuspm or issch, go ahead and uncheck them too.
Hope this help . . .

The Automatic Private IP Addressing (APIPA) protocol
automatically assigns an IP address from the range:
169.254.1.0 to 169.254.254.255. If the APIPA protocol is
disabled, the default IP address of a Brother print server is
192.0.0.192. To change it, use the printer control panel (if
applicable), the BRAdmin Professional, Web BRAdmin software
or let your DHCP server allocate an IP address to the printer.
2 Refer to chapter 10 of this User’s Guide to learn how to
configure the IP address on your printer.
3 The default password for Brother print servers is access.
