After installing vista service pack 1 my dvd rom is gone.


Download the latest driver for dvd rom from Acer that will work with Vista SP1. Also try uninstalling the device in device manager and restart your computer. Vista may find "new hardware" and install the driver from its driver pack in SP1.

Computer not recognizing garmin305 via usb


Hmmm, on the cd/dvd is a folder called usb, thats where the drivers are. Assuming you are using windows XP, go to the configuration screen, select system, select hardware, look for a usb device with an exclamation mark, right mouse it select update driver, select I will choose, then browse to the folder on the cd. If that doesn't work or there is no yellow exclamition mark, look for unknown devices remove them (delete button) and do a rescan (little icon with the screen on it.

Compaq C504US notebook PC


Hi, What exactly happens when you plug in the USB cable into laptop and turn on the printer? Does any window pop up that says "New hardware found?" Or if you check in the device manager list, is there a yellow question mark in there anwhere. To check for this question mark, -Right click on My Computer -Select Hardware -Click on Device Manager In this window is where the yellow question mark would be. If there is one, this means that your laptop does recognize the printer but have not installed the driver cd as yet. However, the CD that comes with the printer is not for Windows Vista. To get the drivers for vista you have to go to the drivers and downloads page of http://www.lexmark.com website and download the vista driver. If none of the above happens and this does not work then it might be another problem. Let me know what happens. Lolita
