Windows/Gateway GM5045E will not discover GeForce 9800GT


The problem is more likely you don't have plug and play running in windows. To install the UPnP user interface
  1. Open Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel.
  2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.
  3. In the Components list, select the Networking Services check box, and then click Details.
  4. Make sure the UPnP User Interface check box is selected.
You can also add the hardware in manually. Just treat it like a non plug and play device You must be logged on as an administrator or a member of the Administrators group in order to complete this procedure. If your computer is connected to a network, network policy settings might also prevent you from completing this procedure.
  1. Attach the non-Plug and Play device to your computer.
  2. Open shortcutcold.gifAdd Hardware in Control Panel.
  3. In the Add Hardware Wizard, click Next.
  4. Click Add a new hardware device, and then click Next.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • Click Search for and install the hardware automatically (Recommended) if you want Windows to try to detect the new non-Plug and Play device you want to install.
    • Click Install the hardware that I manually select from a list (Advanced) if you know the type and model of the device you are installing and you want to select it from a list of devices.
  6. Click Next, and then follow the instructions on your screen.

Hello, if looked this error code from Microsoft self, just have a lokk and see if you have tried all of these.

This problem occurs if you install a driver for a non-Plug and Play device, but Windows cannot find the device. Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

If the Troubleshooting Wizard does not resolve the problem, do one of the following:
  • If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, connect the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver.
  • If the hardware was not removed, the driver files might be obsolete. In this case, update the driver from Device Manager. In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
  • If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, you may have to install a newer version of the driver. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type hdwwiz.cpl.

If that doesn't work, i tried this program once at a frined of mine with the same problem as you have now and it worked perfectly.

Desktop icons doesnt show up. cant open 'my documents' 'control panel'


if you put your vista disc in and boot from that you should be able to go to a point when it was working or do a repair install.

If you need to do a repair install make sure you back all of your data up before you do it.

You should be able to use firefox or internet explorer to navigate the C drive to navigate and find all the documents you want to save etc and you should be able to copy it to a memory stick or external hard drive.

Can't get Vista to restart


Start windows, befor Ram loads hit F8 / F9 / F11 so u can acces to Boot Menu
then Hit Safe Mode it will loads windows but with restricted opcions then go to Start menu --> execut or Go
and then type CHKDSK and reboot
if it doesnt work ull have to restore your system
ull have to boot on safe mode and do this it will work 100/100

1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
2.
In the System Properties dialog box, on the System Restore tab, use the slider to increase the allocated disk space, and then click OK.
If you're using more than one drive on your system, follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.
2.
Click the drive you want to monitor, and then click Settings.
3.
In the Settings dialog box, shown in Figure 1, use the slider to increase the disk space, and then click OK twice.
sysrest1.gif
Figure 1
Notice that the disk space allocated to System Restore cannot exceed 12%. If you need more space, you can run the Disk Cleanup utility to reclaim space. To open Disk Cleanup:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup.
arrow_px_up.gifTop of page Before You Try System RestoreSystemRestore should only be used after trying less comprehensive methods oftroubleshooting. System Restore changes many files and registryentries, and in some cases might replace more files than you wantrestored. So when I first run into a computer problem, I reboot mycomputer. I'm still amazed at how often a problem is solved by usingthis simple technique. Or, if your computer won't start in normal mode,reboot your computer, press F8 during the boot process, use the arrowkeys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration, and then press ENTER.
Other troubleshooting techniques that often work are listed below.
Run problem applications in Compatibility Mode if system instability occurs after installing a particular application. To run the Program Compatibility Wizard:
• Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Program Compatibility Wizard.
Use Add or Remove Programsto uninstall a problem application if the system instability hasoccurred immediately after a new application has been installed andrunning the program in Compatibility Mode hasn't helped. AlthoughSystem Restore will remove the application if you choose to apply it,it is better to remove the offending application from Control Panel. Toopen Add or Remove Programs:
1.
Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.
2.
Click the program you want to remove, and then click Change/Remove.
If the system's instability has occurred immediately after a new device driver is installed, use the Device Driver Rollback feature instead of System Restore. To roll back to an earlier driver:
1.
Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
2.
On the Hardware tab, click Device Manager.
3.
In the Device Manager dialog box, double-click the hardware that uses the driver in question.
4.
In the device Properties dialog box, on the Driver tab, click Roll Back Driver.
See Charlie Russel's columns, Device Driver Rollback Beats BSOD and Finding Compatible Device Drivers for Windows XP, and Paul McFedries' column, Troubleshoot Device Driver Problems, for more information about device drivers.
Work through the Windows XP troubleshooters in the Help and Support Center. To open a troubleshooter:
1.
Click Start, and then click Help and Support.
2.
Under Pick a Help topic, click Fixing a Problem.
3.
Under Troubleshooting problems in the right pane, click List of troubleshooters, and then start a troubleshooter by clicking the name in the left column of the table.
If,after trying these options the computer is still unstable, opt forSystem Restore. You'll want to save this option for last because thechanges made to your computer are more comprehensive than if you simplyuninstall a program or rollback a device driver.
Use System RestoreAfteryou've decided to use System Restore to revert your system to aprevious state, start the System Restore Wizard and follow the prompts.To use the System Restore Wizard, make sure you're logged on as anadministrator, and then follow these steps:
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.

Hi

Ok First to ensure that your CD-Rom / DVD is installed correctly

Goto the control panel if you can see a whole list of icons find and click on system

otherwise find Performance and maintenance and then click on system

now up the top of this new window find and click the hardware tab

finally click on the Device Manager button , this will bring up the Device manager window


in this window look for and expand by clicking the plus Icon next to DVD/CD-ROM Drives

if you see anything in here your CD drive is installed. You will probably find that either you optical drive is either disconnected and the ribbon cable connecting it to the motherboard will need to be checked , or you have got a faulty optical drive

If you cant see anything in here go back to the control panel and find add hardware if you cant see that icon click on printers and other hardware and in the left hand side bar click on add hardware.

This will bring up a step by step wizard

after clicking next on the initial screen windows will do a scan and try and detect any hardware devices that have not been installed yet. If on the next screen you are asked "Have you connected the hardware?" please open up your PC and check the ribbon connection on the reverse of the optical drive and make sure the power connectors etc are properly seated.

If this works follow the on screen steps and installation will be straight forward.

Hopefully this will solve your problems

Cheers.

If you have any other queries please respond

Thankyou

Code 41
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.
