Drivers required for mouse operation will be provided in windows itself so u can try connecting your mouse via USB port(except ball mounted mouse)better use optical mouse ...even after this if it is not working then you need to reinstall the OS.

thank you..

The Device Manager on Windows does not find my webcam. Instead it says Unknown Device. Any one have a fix for that?


You need to manually install the driver for the webcam, go here - HP ProBook 4520s Notebook PC and select your operating system, then expand the Driver - Keyboard, Mouse and Input Devices section and your webcam driver should be there, download and install it, and then restart and that should resolve your issue

Hardware changes might not have been detected for windows 7


make sure devices are compatible with win7 and make sure drivers are present and can be found by operating system. devices can be added in control panel - Add New Hardware. If you have yellow exclamation marks in device manager for that device or unknown device, go to properties, update driver, and supply path to driver files.

Welcome found new hardware wizard,this notice has been stuck on my computer windows internet explorer all day.


If you have just recently connected a new piece of hardware, such as a printer or external hard drive, you will need to run the new hardware wizard so the computer can connect to this new hardware properly. If you haven't installed any new hardware, read the wizard prompt to see which hardware it is talking about and then you can download/find the CD for the drivers accordingly.

If you would rather just ignore this problem, just hit the cancel button every time it comes up.

I have a Toshiba Tecra M8 and the touchpad stopped working. I can still use a USB mouse, but i've tried the FN F9 key to make sure that the touchpad is enabled but it still isn't working. Are there drivers...


Check in the device manager and see if the touchpad is listed under pointing devices.If it is not there try add hardware and see if it detects the hardware. If it is there check to see if it says device is working properly. Sometimes touchpads require software to operate properly so check and see if software was uninstalled. You can also download the drivers/software from Toshiba, try removing the touchpad in the device manager and then re-booting the computer. When windows re-boots it should start installing new hardware found. Use the driver/software you downloaded from Toshiba. If none of these work your touchpad may be bad.

Problem in bluetooth.


Please check whether you have all the drivers or not.
Click right mouse on my computer > Properties > Hardware > Device Manager
You would find yellow signs in front of unknown drivers.
In my case, SP32883 (Support Software for HP Integrated Bluetooth Module with Wireless Technology) worked for me.

How to download vga driver


I will try to answer this one, but i don't know whether you are looking for drivers for a special card or you are searching for your motherboard on-board video drive.

case 1: on-board drivers can be found at the manufacturer's websites, in case you network is slow, you can use someone else's network. just go to the website, lookup support, lookup your hardware or motherboard model and the driver for the mobo, will fix chipset, audio, video issues.

case2: higher end graphic card such as nvidia or ati or intel can be found at the manufacturer's website also, or on the cd that came with the graphics card. in case we are talking about a laptop here, then you should go to the laptop's manufacturer and lookup your hardware. all manufacturer's usually have most drivers on their web page within a month of the release of that certian unit. Toshiba tend to take longer.

Case 3: which is more technical, in case you don't know who is the manufacturer of the actual part, go to device manager, find the unknown device or uninstalled device, right click on it, choose properties, detais tab, hardware id( i have actually seen people using software to get information that windows already offers. why buy "unknown device" and everest just for that) copy and paste that string on google and it will show you where the driver is, specially for intel based hardware. good luck hunting drivers.
