I have an older, much older!, Midisoft Play Piano 2.0 software CD. It says it is for Windows 95 or Windows 3.1. I would very much like to get back to learning the piano, but now have Windows 7. Will it...


Hey there,
I don't know if there's an upgrade available, but I really doubt you'll be able to run the program under Win7. The easiest way (and it's still not easy) to run older (win 95/98) programs under XP or windows 7, is to install microsoft virtual pc:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/

This will let you install an older version of windows under your current operating system. Its the easiest way i've found of being able to play older games/run older programs.

If this seems like too much of a chore, look for freeware versions of similar programs that will run under Win7. Here's just a few:

I have a Toshiba laptop Sattelite L550 model. my DVD player is not working and the windows diagnostics are telling me that Windows did not start a related device driver. How can I fix this?


Try to Uninstall the driver then restart your computer in order for the changes to take effect then reinstall the driver back or most of the times windows will automatically install the driver that was uninstalled, this should fix the problem but If not then you can update or installed an updated driver of your DVD Player on the web. Try to go to Toshiba website to find the driver for your computer.

Sony vaio shuts down randomly after windows update


The Solution
Secondly, I'm going to tell you two (or three) possible ways to get your computer working fine again, depending on the OS you want to run / you are running currently on your laptop. There is a "hardware solution" and a "software workaround" for this problem. Both will be described later.:

Windows 2000 / XP
Windows ME / 98 (SE)
Linux
  • hardware solution ONLY!
  • hardware solution, or
  • software workaround
  • hardware solution, or
  • software workaround

  • Hardware solution
    This way to solve the problem really is a solution. The defective parts on the cpu-board are replaced, the laptop will be working again with all functions and all operating systems.
    I put all important information on this solution into a PDF file, downloadable here.
    A detailed description how to disassemble your notebook (printed from http://www.vaioshutdown.com) here.

    Deutsche Beschreibung der Reparatur (Ausdruck von http://www.kinotechnik.edis.at/pages/vaio_rep/sony_vaio_rep.html) ist hier zu finden.

  • Software workaround
    As the title says, this is only a workaround. The unstable voltage supply to the cpu will still be there, but as my experience has shown, this won't harm your cpu. All we have to do, is to disable the ACPI functions that are shutting down the laptop.
    That sounds quite simple, but it is not! In more modern Microsoft OSs (2000/XP) the ACPI functions are fundamentally implemented and cannot be "switched off". This is why this trick works for Windows 98 / ME and Linux only.
    Workaround for Windows 98/ME (two options):
    • with Windows-reinstallation: here
    • without Windows-reinstallation: here
    Workaround for Linux: here

These are the recommended hardware requirements in installing windows XP:
  • PC with 300 megahertz or higher processor clock speed recommended; 233 MHz minimum required (single or dual processor system);* Intel Pentium/Celeron family, or AMD K6/Athlon/Duron family, or compatible processor recommended
  • 128 megabytes (MB) of RAM or higher recommended (64 MB minimum supported; may limit performance and some features)
  • 1.5 gigabytes (GB) of available hard disk space*
  • Super VGA (800 x 600) or higher-resolution video adapter and monitor
  • CD-ROM or DVD drive
If your laptop pass all this requirements then you can upgrade your windows 98 to windows xp operating System.

well, un-install the dvd application software and install it again it will ask you the region and specify the correct on. you can also set the region on the setting tab.

Toshiba DVD ROM SD M1302 driver


If you are using Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, NT or XP, and have an ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive, there is no driver needed (see Toshiba statement I have posted below). Under no circumstances, if DVD is properly installed and functional, will you need ANY driver!

If your DVD drive is a SCSI drive, then it may need drivers specific to the SCSI card you have installed (see the specs/manual or website for your card). You may also need the Adaptec SCSI setup, available at this address:

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/suppbyproduct.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=%2FTechnology%2FSCSI+Software&fromPage=driverindex

or use this address if you have a LOGIC based SCSI card or device:

http://www.lsilogic.com/

Now, if you meet the criteria for the first paragraph I wrote, and your PC does not load the driver automatically (after a reboot or two) then you have a PHYSICAL or HARDWARE problem. Either the DVD drive is improperly cabled, improperly installed or defective.

Those are all your options. See below, from Toshiba website
good luck

ATAPI CD-ROM and DVD Drivers

Toshiba's CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives do not require any unique device drivers for Windows '95/'98/2000/XP/NT.
After installing your drive and re-booting, your system should recognize your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM. Win '95/'98/2000/XP/NT Operating Systems support all Toshiba ATAPI CD-ROM and DVD-ROM drives natively.

DOS/Windows 3.x Device Drivers

This device driver is to be used with DOS/Windows 3.x operating systems. Do not use this driver with Windows '95, Windows '98, XP or Windows 2000 unless you are going to use your system in the REAL or MS-DOS Modes. Device drivers for Windows '95, Windows '98, Windows 2000, XP, OS/2, and NT operating systems are provided with the installation or setup software of each operating system.

SCSI CD-ROM and DVD Drivers

SCSI interface drivers are written for the SCSI card you are using in your system, by the SCSI card manufacturer. They are not specific to your Toshiba drive and are not provided by Toshiba. If during installation Windows can not find the correct SCSI software driver for your SCSI card and you do not have the software driver that came with your SCSI card, contact your SCSI host adapter manufacturer.
