The VT6212L does not work in my A7V266-C mainboard, under Windows XP Pro SP3 or Debian Linux 6.0.1a . I tried everything without success.

I just formatted my system,i have drive the all the component that needed attension but i couldnt get a driver for the mass storage controller which made it impossible for me to access USB.plz i need your...

Did you put the same version of Windows on that was on before? Usually this type of driver is installed automatically. You did not say what kind of system you have, so the best advice I can give is go tothe manufacturer website and look for the driver there. Also, if you installed XP, often installing the updates will make the system recognize things it did not before - possibly the USB you refer to. The service packs are rather large files, so if you have a slow connection it will take a while. They are called sp1, sp2, and sp3. You cannot go right to sp3 because the system needs at least sp2 to install sp3. So you can install the sp2 and skip sp1, and then install sp3. I would also go to the Microsoft update website, and choose custom. That way you can select the hardware updates and maybe it will show up there.

Pci card doesint work

What you want is a USB hub.  That will allow you to connect more than two USB devices to your computer.  There are two types, USB 2.0 and USB 1.1.  USB 1.1 will work for most slow speed devices, USB 2.0 is better for cameras and hard disks that have the support.  You should confirm which version of USB your computer has, but you should be OK getting a USB 4-port hub, plugging that into your computer, then plugging your keyboard and mouse into the hub and using the other port for the new peripheral that you wish to install.  Old PCI cards are problematic because you need the correct drivers.  You also need to make sure you plug them into the proper PCI port.  It sounds like the device you got from e-bay might be bad, so you shouldn't continue to use it.  If you post the make / model of your computer we might be able to suggest a new PCI card that will work if you still want to add more ports to your computer.

The system comments that this is not a usb 2 device

first thing is that message just means that your device will work at a reduced speed
second is that a high speed port or enhanced usb port is required to work it at enhanced speeds
to check if your usb port is enhanced goto : control panel / system properties / hardware tab / device mannager / then scroll down to usb controllers and see if it says enhanced next to your usb port if it does then you will need to get the updated usb driver for the enhanced speed

Drivers of sound and display

I can easily answer your question because i have the same issue. However its not the answer your looking for. It's because the hardware in your notebook is to advanced for basic xp drivers. I honestly dont think theres a website out there that makes drivers for xp anymore. Microsoft is basically taking xp off the map. Your best chance is selling that notebook and getting one that does support xp before they do so. Theres already word out there that in less than five years xp will be completely shut off. So basically, these people that make drivers for vista aren't making them for xp for a reason. I'm a 21, and ive been fixing computers for the last 4 yrs as my own personal business and till this day have not been able to find drivers to replace vista ones. Sorry but thats going to be an issue to all of us until some hacker figures out how to solve our issue.

I cannot install BF 810

The problem is two-fold: correct device driver for the endoscope, and correct driver for the adapter.

Please check with the manufacturer of the endoscope whether that connection expects a standard RS-232 port. They might be able to recommend the proper driver combination to get this to work.

XP won't boot with NEC SD-V2-5U USB card installed

Have you tried moving the card to a different slot? The motherboard BIOS and/or the operating system may be trying to assign an interrupt that cannot be shared--especially if you have the card installed in the slot next to the video card (or shared with the onboard video).

Firewire Not Detected

This is quite an old firewire card model and according to the model number you have posted the chip on this card supports only upto windows 2000 or before, so if you are trying to run it on XP, there are no inbuilt driver support, so i think maybe you need to purchase a newer firewire card. There are are no downloadable drivers for this card because cards of this type do not require drivers to be installed as they are built into windows, but in this case not XP

Can I take it out?

Too prevent static discharge while working on a PC or electronic devices, either use an anti static wrist strap available from any computer or elecronics outlet store or make sure one hand is holding the metal PC casing whilst the other is removing the PCI device. You can also purchase an anti static mat to put the PC on while working on it but these can be expensive. The rule of thumb is to make sure the PC is earthed the entire time you are touching the internal workings, you can also safely work with PCI card install & removal procedure if the PC has been disconnected from its power source for more than four hours, PCI cards generally discharge when the PC is turned off, static discharge will only cause problems with the motherboard and processor if not earthed correctly or physically before removal or installation.
