Well, since the downloading starts i will guess that the issue isent your laptop. My guess is that your problem is your internet or the site you download from.

I have downloaded itunes to my computer but it won't open it. It is a pc laptop toshiba satellite A665D with windows 7 64 bit Why?


iTunes will install in Program Files (x86) even the 64 bit version. There are also iTunes files in Program Files as well. This is normal. It appears that the 64 bit version is really a hybrid of both 32 and 64 bit, the drivers mainly being 64 bit. Having itunes.exe 32* in the Task manager is normal

A lot of people are having problems with itunes 9.1. You can get 9.03 at this site. It ran flawlessly for me.

Can,t get printer to work need to configure and get driver to work


Computer off, Photosmart C4580 OFF, and unplugged from power. Disconnect the USB cable from it to the computer.

Turn the computer on.
Remove all associated HP software for the Photosmart.

Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.
When the list populates remove all HP software for the Photosmart.
When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.

Restart your computer.

HP Support > HP Photosmart C4580 > Main support page,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?product=3418707&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&lang=en&cc=us

Click on the heading - Software and Driver Downloads - in the list.
(Right side)

Select your Operating System. Click on the blue down arrow, to the right of the box with Select in it.

Click on the Operating System you are using.
(If you have Windows XP Home or Pro, click on Windows XP.
Unless you have Windows XP Pro that states it's 64-bit )

I'm going to use Win XP as an example, because the O/S you are using wasn't mentioned.

After you click on your O/S, go to the right, and click on Next in the blue rectangle.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3418707

Using Windows XP for an example I would click on the + sign,
to the left of, Driver - Product Installation Software (2)

The drop down list shows;

A) HP Photosmart Basic Drivers
56.03 MegaBytes in size. (56.03MB)

B) HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers
149.41MB in size.

I recommend downloading B)
Get the full package.

Click right on the blue heading -
HP Photosmart Full Feature Software and Drivers

Scrolling down to the heading - Details and Specifications, and further down to the sub-heading - Compatibility, we see this software is compatible with XP and Vista.

Shows it to be compatible with Windows Vista, and both versions 32-bit, and 64-bit.

Only shows it to be compatible with Windows XP in a 32-bit version.

If it is good for a Vista 64-bit O/S, I'm going to go out on a limb, and state it will work with Windows XP Pro 64-bit.

To download the file click on the blue file name -

PS_AIO_04_C4500_USW_Full_Win_enu_120_210_NB.exe

( [1/1, 149.41m]
This means Page 1 of 1, and the size is 149.41 MegaBytes )

After you click a small window will come up.
Opening - and the file name.

Click on - Save File.

After you click another small window will come up. This time on the left side.
In the heading of this window, tells you where the file will download to.

It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

[ Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Write this down, and the file name. (File name; so you can find it later)

Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

My Documents: Click on Start, then on My Documents.

[ Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win 7 ]

Downloads:
Click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

[ Windows logo button, then on Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista and Win 7 ]


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it.
Follow the easy instructions.
(Next, Next, and Finish)

When finished close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

Plug the USB cable of the Photosmart back into the Advent laptop.
Turn the Photosmart on.

After a few seconds, (After all of your Start-Up menu items are loaded, really), a pop-up should come up out of your system tray;

"Found new hardware"

,and perhaps another one,
"Found HP Photosmart C4580"

Post additional questions, or to have me clarify anything I have stated, in a Comment.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[ Why remove the software, then reinstall?

1) I don't think going to Add or Remove Programs, and clicking on - Repair, for the HP Photosmart software, will do any good.

I think there are too many files corrupted, and the software needs to be reinstalled in full.

2) You may get a driver conflict, with having part of the old HP software still there, and then reinstalling new software.

(Probability is pretty low, but why take chances, or have to do it all over again? )

Need ethernet drivers for emachine e525


http://support.gateway.com/us/en/emac/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1325

Scroll down. There are two LAN drivers listed.
One is RealTek, one is Ralink.

The Ralink LAN driver is for Vista 32-bit, and 64-bit
The RealTek LAN driver is for WinXP 32-bit or 64-bit.

So without having to go to Device Manager, you know right off the bat which LAN driver you need, based on what Operating System you are using.

Vista or XP.

[ But the proper method is to check;

WinXP:
Left-click on Start
Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of -
Network Adapters.
Your Ethernet adapter manufacturer will be shown.

Vista and Win7:
Left-click on the Windows logo button.
Right-click on Computer
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on the + sign to the left of -
Network Adapters.
Your Ethernet adapter manufacturer will be shown ]


When you click on the appropriate driver file, a small window will come up on the right.
Go to the bottom of this small window, and left-click on Save File.

A small window will come up on the left. In the wording at the top of this window, tells you where the file will download to.
It may have Desktop, or My Documents, or Downloads, in the wording.

{Desktop, or Documents, or Downloads, for Vista and Win7}

1) Desktop: The file will be on your desktop screen.

2) My Documents: Left-click on Start, then on My Documents.

{Windows logo button, then Documents, for Vista and Win7}

3) Downloads: Left-click on Start, then My Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads.

{Windows logo button, then Documents. DOUBLE-click on Downloads, for Vista, and Win7}


When you see the file name DOUBLE-click right on it. The Installation Wizard will come up.
Follow the easy instructions.

{Essentially just click on Next, Next, and Finish at the bottom.
Windows knows the proper place for the driver file. Do Not change any settings}

After the installation is finished, restart your computer if not asked to do so.

{TIP: Sometimes it takes a cold boot, instead of a warm boot. (Restart)
The computer has to be turned all the way off. WAIT 1 minute, then turn back on}

Even though i just installed realtek ac'97audio driver on my presario v2000..the driver won't start (code 10)..and i can't update it too..


Oh?

What Operating System are you using, and what is the file name of the driver?
Did you download it from HP Support?

For example:
This is the driver download page for Windows XP,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=228&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=1832423

In the Audio menu there are two files listed.

One is the Conexant High Definition Audio Driver

The other file is the Microsoft Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) Bus Driver for High Definition Audio.

This file must be downloaded first, (Save File), then Installed, and computer restart.
{Microsoft UAA}
Once Windows has loaded again go back to the website, and download, and install the Conexant driver. Then computer restart.

Driver for Windows 2000 is just the Microsoft UAA driver above.
Driver for Vista (32-bit) is just the Conexant driver.

Did you;
A) Save the file to your computer? (Save File)
B) Open the file, and install it?
C) Restart your computer?

Post back in a Comment. (Believe upper right of your page)

I am not able to install windows updates


go into Services, stop Automatic Updates and the BITS services. Then delete, then start them up. When you do this, the Update History log is destroyed. So the next time you try to look at your history log on Windows/Microsoft Update, it will come back empty until you install again. Then it will show from that point. If you have not installed all updates in the SoftwareDistribution/Downloads folder, these will have to be downloaded again.

You have two options:-

1. Delete the entire SoftwareDistribution tree and lose Update History (this should work but like I said you will lose download history)

However you could do this, but the corruption in the download file may remain

2. OR Delete the Downloads folder only, keeping the Update History data file (located in the DataStore folder), and take the chance that you don't get out-of-sync of downloaded files/not installed.
