Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I am trying to install a Targus USB 2.0 Micro Webcam. After inserting the USB cable (to an IBM Thinkpad X24 Pentium/Windows XP) I proceed to the 'My Computer' Icon and then 'Add/Remove Hardware' Icon. This brings up the 'Add/Remove Hardware Wizard'. Click 'next' for the Add/troubleshoot device and a list of found devices includes '? USB 2.0 camera' with a yellow ! over the ?. This is selected and 'next' is clicked. This comes up with 'Device Status: The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code28)' Wizard Trouble shooter is then started. This 'helps upgrade a device driver for a hardware device'. Click 'next' and proceed to 'searches for suitable drivers' and 'specify a suitable location'. Click 'next' and 'insert the manufacturers installation disk' comes up. There is no installation disk with the webcam. I updated software online with microsoft but this has had no affect. Any ideas? Rgds, Chris Whaley.

IBM Netvista Intel Pentium 4 2.4GHz / 512MB DDR / 40GB HDD / DVD-ROM / 10/100Mbps LAN / Windows XP. I reinstall the Operating System with XP Service Pack 3, and now I don't have the drivers for video,...


If you give me the model number of your system and let me know if it's Win XP 32 or 64 bit. I will see if I can help. Is there a graphics crad installed? If you had make and model of motherboard that would really help.

The same model ThinkPad can have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless you know exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download all the drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver.

When you download the drivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a record of which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files are located on your hard drive.

Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEB site - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista device drivers for your model computer, Use this link: -

http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true

You can download the various drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, they will then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install the various drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

Hi,
Windows XP has Drivers within the operating system to Install and setup USB Ports.
Here Are your options to Provide A Fix.
1: )The USB Port May Be Disconnected From The motherboard.
2:) The Device you are trying to Connect ( Pen-Drive ) May be faulty And Not Recognised By The Computer.

3:) The USB Cable Or Socket May Be Faulty.

Solution:- Try Connecting the Device To An Alternative ( different ) USB Socket On The PC.

Solution:- Try Connecting a Different Device to the USB Port. i.e MP3 player Or Digital Camera et,c.

Solution:- Check that the USB Header Cables ( from Motherboard To USB Ports ) Are connected Or incorrectly Connected.

IBM Netvista 6059 - Can't upgrade to windows XP


Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only... I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS. Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
