You might have do a manual update

The Windows XP Home operating system has the ability to connect to the Internet and download updates from the Microsoft servers. These updates provide critical and optional security, stability and feature upgrades for the operating system to help keep it operating smoothly. Running this update program is easy to do for users of all skill levels and it's a crucial part of keeping your computer working correctly.

Boot up your computer and log in to the operating system. Click on the "Start" button, click on "All Programs" and then click on "Windows Update." Click the "Express" button and wait for the Windows Update utility to scan your computer for a list of currently installed updates. Once this process is finished, you are shown a list of available updates you can install. Click the "Install Updates" button to start downloading the updates. If any license agreements appear, read them and then click the "I accept" button to continue with the update process. Once the updates finish installing, you need to restart your computer. Hope this helps.

Toshiba Satellite A355-S6935 touchpad problem


That is normal, because the touchpad requires a driver. Windows 7, fortunately, comes with driver installation through the Windows Update.

Simply launch Windows update (Start Menu> type "Windows Update" > hit 'enter'), and select all the updates and hit update. You could also manually do it, by going to Toshiba's website, finding your computer model in the "support" category, and finding the appropriate touch-pad driver. (I believe it would be called "Synaptic Touchpad Driver").


Good luck!

Why I cannot login windows after installed MicrosoftFixit50588.msi


Shutdown your computer and the restart it. When it is starting up hit F12 or it may be F1 or F2 depending on your pc before Windows loads and it should as if you want to boot into safe mode. When it does let it boot into safe mode you will know because the colors and screen will have a very bad display. Login to your computer and navigate to Control Panel > Program and Features > View installed updates and navigate to the hot fix that was installed. Click on the update and then choose uninstall from the top Window and it will uninstall the update. Reboot the computer and it should come up. Cheers!

Try running Windows Updates on your computer to see if there are updates for Internet Explorer. Also, try running Internet Explorer in Safe Mode.

I have a polaroid a530 and when i hook it up to my pc it geives an option caled pc cam i hit and nothing happens please help


Select "PC" not PC Cam. PC Cam will try to install the camera as a webcam, which requires a driver.

Also, make sure you are pressing OK (shutter button), not just highlighting the option.

Touch buttons dont work properly.


Your Laptop is "booting up", which is another way to say that it's starting up. When it is doing this, it has a regular starting procedure and it is loading the Operating System and then the Programs you have installed on your Laptop. After installing a large program, or some software that requires a quick update/scan of your laptop - like antivirus software, it can take a few minutes to finish starting up your laptop. When it has finished loading all of the software from its startup menu and updating certain software, then any buttons (like volume or CD eject buttons that you may have pressed while it was busy starting/booting up).... these actions will then begin to be recognized by the laptop. So, while your laptop was starting up, if you were trying to turn up the volume on a CD that was in your laptop, nothing happened, and then decided to try to pop the CD out, and nothing happened, when the laptop was finally ready to acknowledge the buttons that were pushed, they seemed to happen automatically.

Bottom Line: Give your laptop enough time to startup completely on its own. While your laptop is busy during startup, there will be a little light on your mouse pad area that looks like a round storage barrel facing upward. After all your normal startup software has finished booting up and antivirus software has finished their tasks, you should be good to go. For me, my laptop has a 60-GB hard drive and I use Yahoo-IM (that starts up when my laptop starts up), and I have McAfee antivirus (which searches for updates when my laptop starts up, my wireless connection software looks for available wireless routers to connect to (not just mine), Windows Vista searches and installs updates, Google + MySpace + Twitter search for their updates, etc..... the barrel icon mentioned above stops blinking and that tells me that my laptop is now ready. I just tested my laptop startup and it took 9 minutes for my laptop to finish booting up (I am using my desktop for this message). You might want to DEFRAGment your Hard Drive, which should help, but this may take a few hours to complete depending on the size of your hard drive. If you have an Antivirus Program, it likely has a Performance / Maintain Computer option which should also help.

A bit late, but hey, better late than never, right?
I had exactly the same problem. Turned out it was my batteries!
When I use Philips Powerlife batteries I experience no problems whatsoever. Any other batteries don't seem to work as well. Apparently there are differences between the various AA-type batteries.

Lemme know if that solved your problem, please. t u r r e b o a t g m a i l d o t c o m

Nothing pop's in my screen comp,


I think I got it guys. forget WMP 9,. 10 , 11... I run win xp service pack 2 and could not install the samsung yp-u3 player. I kept having it found as a new hardware {portable device} but as we all know this software has no drivers, and the windows update produces MTP device error. Resulting in you not being able to see your player in XP. Well go to windows update site and search for a file called "mtppk12.exe" I'm pretty sure once you install that file and reboot, you will no longer have MTP device errors. However, I installed this at the same time i installed windows media player SDK. So maybe both files are required. Finally after 2 days of troubleshooting i got mine to work.

Actually I already tried that


Try another way around,right click your sound card in device manager and click update driver; forcing it to look wherever you have the setup.exe stored on your pc, the file you are using is probably not a manual setup, but has the required .ini or .dll file required for your card.
