    Windows 2000 is not compatible with Vista hardware. You will not be able to fix that one. All I can tell you need to get a Vista or Windows XP and re-install it.

The drivers for windows XP are available on this site : Drivers for Toshiba laptop
You can try and see if they are compatible with windows 2000, or install Windows XP which is better anyway.

I would like to know the wireless drivers that are compatible with my laptop pc hp compaq nx6310. I installed windows 7 ultimate but my laptop cannot access the wifi hot spot.please help me


HP/Compaq ONLY provides drivers for Windows 2000, Win XP, and Win Vista for this model of laptop. It is based on OLD hardware and they are NOT going to write any Win7 drivers for it. If you want to use the wireless features, you can TRY to make the Vista wireless drivers work with it, but I don't think you'll have much success. Of course, you can always install Win2k, WinXP, or WinVista again...

I am running windows xp at present. i want to run windows 2000 so i can also install google chrome in my computer. what will i do?


You don't need Windows 2000 to install Google Chrome. I am sure that Windows XP supports Google Chrome. Otherwise you will have to upgrade to either Windows Vista or Windows 7.

I have sony vaio laptop model vgn cr515e how can i get its driver and wifi software for window 7 sir i have lost its recovery which came with it. therefore i have installed window 7 but there is some...


Hi,

There are lots of troubleshooting steps that you can try at this point of time. Even I checked and found that Wireless Drivers for Windows 7 are not available for this model. In Windows 7, there is no particular driver for the Camera as the computer will use the inbox driver shipped with the Windows 7 OS. However to avail the proper functionality of the Camera application, you can install the WebCam Companion Software for the Windows 7 OS from the below link:

Also install the ArcSoft Magic-i Visual Effects Software:

For the wireless driver and utility, I would suggest that you install the Wireless driver for Windows Vista as I have my personnel experience that Vista drivers usually works with the Windows 7 environment. Once you successful install the Wireless driver, the computer will get back its wireless functionality and you can enable and disable the wireless feature using the Windows Mobility Center from the control panel.

Please download the wireless driver and update for the computer from the below link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR515E&upd_id=3321&os_id=28

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR515E&upd_id=4751&os_id=28

These drivers should install normally with out any issues. If you are getting an error message indicating the Vista compatibility error, you can use Universal Extractor to extract the setup files of the these drivers and then run them separately

Please let me know if you want any more info.

Thanks!!!

Acer Aspire 1690 cooling problem whit windows vista


Windows Vista is a very demanding Operating system when it comes to system resources and it doesnt come as a shock to hear that you computer runs warmly, If you werent experiencing any problems when you had windows XP installed, I would suggest downgrading to Window XP, otherwise wait for October 22 and purchase a genuine copy of Windows 7 and use that.
