    Ekse,



    Thanks for trying to help me. I just bought this computer and found out after the fact that the programs that I need for class which are WordPerfect X3 and my transcription equipment. Now, the Olympus DDS Transcription Module loaded fine, but after I download my dictation and try to play it back with my Olympus Footpedal, I can hear the dictation comming through my earphones, but it isn't being controlled by the Footpedal.... The footswitch shows up on my control panel, but its not installed.



    The other folks in my class do not have Vista and it loaded fine without software....it did not come with software....Also, my teacher gave me a WordPerfect 12 disc to install to replace the X3.....

    She told me my equipment and software should work with my computer....and I don't know enough about it to disagree with her...can you help me.



    I tried your suggestion, but the install file never came up...or where do I find it....does it not pop up on its own....Thanks again

Disconnect Footswitch from computer
if using a straight USB connection, delete all instances of previus installation.
reboot & reconnect footswitch (swap cables if not detected)

Check if the drivers are compatible with vista

Well first thing to try in getting the software installed is to right click on the install file and select run as administrator, the setup should work better.

This is just a initial idea so use the add a comment function to tell me more about the problem

Thanks,
Ekse

    Your footswitch doesn't support vista currently, you would need xp to run it with best results.

Video card upgrade Dell Inspiron 530


If anything, it's simply not compatible with your specs. "Vista 32 bit" alone kind of instilled some doubt in me. But who knows, try surfing around Nvidia's site here

You can try their Option 2 to automatically scan your rig and find a "suitable" driver for it, or try the links below on that site "Beta and Older Drivers" and see if any of the other versions work.

Describe your Inspiron 530 Desktop Computer Problem i had win7 ultimate the power went out it says it cant repair itself i tried reinstalling vista but it wont repair it opens to the win vista install...


Hi k_d_nsyg ,
Install a replacement HD and see what it does when launching the Vista install disc .
if it works , you can probably still recover the data from the old HD with a recovery software such as :
http://download.cnet.com/Recuva/3000-2242_4-10753287.html
or http://www.tenorshare.com/data-recoveryr.html by placing the defective Hd in an external box connected to a healthy computer .
If you don't succeed to get your pc running , you need to bring your machine to a qualified repair office .
Best regards ,

Dell Inspiron 531 gets me crazy..


hello, sounds like memory issue, I would say if you have more than one stick of memory in it remove one at a time and try it again.
also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

hope it helps.

Installing Problems


It's a hardware incompatibility with windows vista. for example your graphics card on your Inspiron might not be fully supported in windows vista and your Laptop's graphics card is supported by Vista. Most of the times we can find this incompatibility is with graphics cards. Download and install the newest drivers for your inspiron's graphics card. I have seen your inspiron has an ATI Radeon X1300 graphics card. The windows Vista drivers can be downloaded here http://game.amd.com/us-en/drivers_catalyst.aspx?p=vista32/common-vista32
