Disk Drive Shows Up In Device Manager But Not My Computer


When you install a disk drive, Windows installs the disk drive's drivers and assigns the disk drive a Drive Letter. When your disk drive shows up in the Device Manager, but is nowhere to be found in My Computer, this means the drivers installed, but Windows didn't assign the disk drive a Drive Letter. The following procedure will help you to assign your disk drive a Drive Letter in Windows XP, Vista & 7. Note: You cannot modify the drive letter of your main partition on your PC.

Windows XP
  1. Log on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group.
  2. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Performance and Maintenance. Note: If you do not see Performance and Maintenance, go to step 3. Performance and Maintenance appears in Control Panel only if you use Category view. If you use Classic view, Performance and Maintenance does not appear.
  3. Click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, and then click Disk Management in the left pane.
  4. Right-click the drive, the partition, the logical drive, or the volume that you want to assign a drive letter to, and then click Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  5. Click Add.
  6. Click Assign the following drive letter if it is not already selected, and then either accept the default drive letter or click the drive letter that you want to use.
  7. Click OK.
  8. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.

Windows Vista
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Maintenance link. Note: If you're viewing the Classic View of Control Panel, you won't see this link. Just double-click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Maintenance window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left. Disk Management should appear on the right side of the Computer Management window after just a few seconds of loading. Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the '> icon to the left of Storage.
  6. On the right-hand side of the screen, locate and right-click on the drive that you wish to change the drive letter of and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  7. In the Change Drive Letter and Paths window, click on the Change... button.
  8. The Change Drive Letter or Path dialog box will appear. Choose the drive letter you wish to assign to this partition. Click OK.
  9. The Confirm window that appears advises you that "Some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Do you want to continue?" Note: If you have software installed to this drive, the software may stop functioning after a drive letter change. Nearly all software defaults to the primary drive though, so this is rarely a concern.
  10. If you're sure you want to make this change, click Yes.
  11. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.

Windows 7
  1. Click on the Start button and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Click on the System and Security link. Note: If you're viewing the Large icons or Small icons view of Control Panel, you won't see this link so just click on the Administrative Tools icon and skip to Step 4.
  3. In the System and Security window, click on the Administrative Tools heading located near the bottom of the window.
  4. In the Administrative Tools window, double-click on the Computer Management icon.
  5. When Computer Management opens, click on Disk Management on the left side of the window, located under Storage. After a brief loading period, Disk Management should now appear on the right side of the Computer Management window. Note: If you don't see Disk Management listed, you may need to click on the '> icon to the left of the Storage icon.
  6. On the right-hand side of the screen, locate and right-click on the drive that you wish to change the drive letter of and choose Change Drive Letter and Paths.
  7. In the Change Drive Letter and Paths window, click on the Change... button. The Change Drive Letter or Path dialog box will appear.
  8. Choose the drive letter you wish to assign to this drive by clicking the letter from the drop-down box on the right. Click OK.
  9. The Disk Management window that appears advises you that "Some programs that rely on drive letters might not run correctly. Do you want to continue?" Note: If you have software installed to this drive, the software may stop functioning after a drive letter change. Nearly all software defaults to the primary drive though, so this is rarely a concern.
  10. If you're sure you want to make this change, click Yes.
  11. You can now close any open Computer Management, Administrative Tools, or Control Panel windows.

I cant find synaptic pointing device icon on right side low


Try opening the Mouse control panel (Start > Control Panel > Printers and Other Hardware > Mouse), then click on the Device Settings tab. There should be an option to show the icon on the Taskbar.

There is no volume icon on the right hand side of my computer and i have misplaced the sound driver disc that came with the computer. what do i do to reinstall the sound


You should know what exact Motherboard model you have if you are not sure you can use software like Everest. It also has a link to manufacturers website for finding new drivers. Usually Sound driver utility puts an icon in the down right corner of your screen. And you may also have an icon from windows Control Panel Sound applet. If you want it to be visible you go to Start-Control Panel-Sound and you have to put check mark near show an icon in a taskbar. Good luck!

Hi, If your son' s computer has a LAN port, then install the LAN driver. LAN port is different from modem. Modem is used for dial-up connection while LAN uses broadband or dsl connection. If you do not know where or how to find the LAN driver, post the manufacturer and model name of your LAN or the motherboard. You can also find it by right clicking the My Computer icon->Manage->Device Manager. On the right side, Expand the Network Adapter. You will then find the software that you are going to reinstall. Another thing is to try to update the driver if it works or not. Here are the steps :
  1. Right click My Computer icon.
  2. Click Manage
  3. A box will appear (Computer Management), Click Device Manager
  4. On the right side, Click and expand Network Adapters
  5. Right click the software, click update driver.
  6. Wait 'til it finds the necessary software.
  7. If it does, then your finished installing the Network Adapter driver. If it says it cannot find the necessary software, you have to manually install it.
  8. IF NOT yet installed, copy the Network Adapter software and paste it in google to find your Network Adapter installer.
I hope this fix your problem. Drop me a comment again if you encounter some problems, ok? I will assist you.

Desktop screen freezes up when I 'right click' mouse on any ico


This sounds as if there is a problem with Webshots corrupting a specific dll file in the Windows system. I hate to say this, but that usually means a complete reinstall from scratch. I would recommend trying to backup all of the files and reinstall windows.

No directions came with the computer.What do I need to know?.Some of the icons I have never seen.Help please joan cummins


have you tried to go to the manufacturer's website to download the manuals?
right click your mouse over the icon and see what the program is.
or you can go to start settings control panel add/remove programs and see the list of installed software. (most installed programs have icons, others, such as java, won't).
double click any icon and the particular program will start. click on the red X in the upper right corner to close any program.

No auto output devise installed


You'll want to check your Device Manager to verify that it sees a sound card installed. This can be done by right clicking the "My Computer" icon, and selecting manage. Now on the left side, click device manager. Scroll down on the right side to the sound entries. Verify that none of the icons have a yellow exclamation mark next to them. If they do, then windows is having trouble finding drivers or possibly having troubles with another card conflicting with it. If this is the case, then you can go to hp.com (I know you have a compaq, but HP is compaq now), and click search for drivers. Input your computer model number, and locate the audio drivers. Then just reinstall them.

Let me know if I can clarify this any more,

Dear Sirs I have just insalled the SimpleCenter media but I do not want the icon to automatically load onto the task bar on the right hand side,although I would like the shortcut to remain. I can delete...


Hello,

You cannot delete the icon from the task bar as it only displays the start up programs running on the computer. I have given the steps below.

Click start, than click run. In this box type "msconfig" without quotes.
You will see the list of startup programs. Uncheck the ones related to the Simple center Media.
Click Aply, Than click close, than click Restart computer now.

The program will not load automatically and you would not see the icon in the taskbar.

I am sure this will help. Please update me on the same.

Regards,
Sammy

I have replaced my D slave drive, from a Maxtor 150gb to a Seagate ST3500630A 500gb. It shows up in device manager, but not in explorer. I have Windows XP pro.


TRY THIS:

Right click on My Computer Icon on desktop.
Select Manage
Double-click on storage on right side window.
Double-click disk management.

Should see your hard drive listed. Right Click on it and select format. Make sure you select right drive to format as is erases all data.

After formatting close window and see if it is listed in explorer.



Hope this helps!
