Hello your computers homepage is here.

Yes there is a way to upgrade (i guees you mean the sevice pack)

You can download the sp1 here:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5842

But you have to know if your system is 32 or 64 bit.

If your system is 64 bit:

Download this file.

windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe


And the 32 bit:

windows6.1-KB976932-X86.exe

When downloaded run the exe program

Then you forceing it to install the sevice pack.

A firewall/antivirus could be blocking so you can`t update the service pack. Try to set it off while you install sp1.
Remember to set it on again when the job is done.

Your Pc haves to restart many times after this.

Good luck

You can download the drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows XP or Vista version of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

There is no downloadable driver for this printer. You just need to update the Windows 7 list on your computer with the latest update. Here are the instructions from hp:

Everytime I do a windows update, it either crashes or hangs on "shutting down" (after leaving it on all night!). Then I lose everything. Help!


you have to be more spacific on what you are doing and what os you are using. Are you using Windows 7 or Vista. If you are using vista, Dont. upgrade to windows 7, it's worth it. but everything else aside, try different ways of installing the updates. you can download the updates manually and install them other then just letting automatic updates do everything.

Download all the windows 7 updates and install then restart. Windows update are not only updating your windows 7 but also updating your hardware driver. After updating try again your sd card or if still the same can not read try some memory card reader then test it to your laptop. Have a nice day.

Am trying to download Office 2010,but the comp. tells me I am not running the XP sp3. How do I fix this ? My comp. does automatic updates.


Manually install the updates by going to the Microsoft Update website. Click start, select all programs, and select Windows update. Allow the updates to download and install. Continue to update until all have been installed. You may have to return to the update page several times before Service Pack 3 can be downloaded and installed.

I JUST BOUGHT A NEW WINDOWS 7 COMPUTER AND MY LEXMARK PRINTER WILL NOT DOWNLOAD PROPERLY FROM THE LEXMARK WEBSITE


I assume you mean the drivers are not downloading properly. Try unplugging the printer's USB cable and uninstalling the driver (in case it stalled part way), then plug in the USB cable again and let Windows 7 download and install the driver. You must have Windows update set to download and install all updates. Otherwise, you'll have to go through the Windows update manager to install the drivers.

The Lexmark site did have some time out problems for me so you may want to try again in a bit.

I hope this helps.
