    if you are still having a problem and you know that the wireless router is hooked up properly and you know your network ethernet driver

    then you can try add new hardware in control panel

    then it may just pick up driver

    if not click next scroll till u see network next choose to automatically install

    if that didn't install then go back and choose to manually install

Download driver free

First I will suggest you to update your graphic drivers so just go the site of your Laptop manufacture. Once there enter the model number of the laptop then request driver (usually found in the web site's "Support Section"). There you should be able to find all the drivers for your model laptop
If this didn't help you then It seems that there is registry issues with your OS so simply get the Reginout to fix all the corrupt registry and errors
Hopefully you will get better results

Need a driver for web cam 251-6506

I cant seem to find a free driver for your webcam. So I'll give some options of what you can do.

1st option is this.


Go to the link above and click the download button. its an easy way to download your driver, but the sad news is you have to pay for it for almost $3 . you can pay it by Paypal or using your credit/debit card.

2nd Option is this:

  • The second option is to download the software in the link above and install it to your PC.
  • Run the program and click Scan to start scanning for installed devices. (You must connect first your webcam before starting the scan in order for the software to detect your webcam.)
  • Now after the scan is finished, browse for your webcam device ( If you can't find it, it might be marked as Others)
  • Now once you've found your webcam device, click the download button to start downloading the driver. ( I'm not sure if it will find the driver for your device just try to download it first )
  • Now once the download is finished, click the install button beside the download button to install the downloaded driver.
  • After installing I suggest that you restart your computer before doing anything.
  • Do not remove the webcam while you restart.
  • Now once your PC has rebooted, try using your webcam and it should working by that time.
Goodluck, Hope my solution will help you. Please give me feedback if my solution worked for you, and if what option worked for you. thanks.

Thank you for using Fixya!Have a great day. =)

I have a Dell Inspiron Laptop. I recently reformatted it. Now It does not recognize wireless connections. I cant connect to the net Can anyone help?

When you reinstalled Windows, Windows probably did not include a driver for your wireless adapter. A driver tells Windows how to interface with a certain device, such as a wireless adapter. You can easily download the driver online and install it. Once installed, restart the computer and you should again have the ability to connect to wireless networks.
I've gone to the Dell website for you and found the correct driver. Please visit this link:
On that website, I would first try downloading the first driver on the list. If that doesn't enable your wireless after a reboot, try the other ones. After the correct driver is installed, your wireless will be working again.

After reinstalling Windows XP, my PC can't detect

Yes you need to install the ethernet driver . You can download it here. You can either enter your service tag number which can be found on the back of your CPU or you can manually select the model. Once done, it will display all the available drivers for your device. Make sure you choose the right Operating System and download/save the ethernet driver you need. Install it ands reboot the computer. Once the right driver has been installed, your computer should be able to detect your modem again.
Hope this helps.

Mouse won't move on hp mini computer HP 2133

If anyone has recently purchased an HP Mini Netbook they might notice one thing not working after a fresh install of Windows 7. The touchpad scrolling doesn't seem to work after fresh install of Windows 7 x32. Read below to find out what you need to get it working. The nice thing is, Windows Updates should pick up everything else automatically.
  • First thing you will need to do is download the Synaptics Touchpad Driver from their website. I have included the link to the download page below

  • If this is a netbook, most likely you are running 32-bit of Windows 7 and so you will need to click on "Windows Vista 32-bit Edition v10.1.8" while on Synaptics' website.

  • Once you download it, simply double click on it to run it and then you will have to restart your computer.

  • No configuration is necessary. Once you have restarted, you will once again have your touchpad scrolling back.

    Device driver will not install; error msg "Access Denied"

    Ok so i was searching around the internet and found a similar problem with another monitor so for giggles i tried there method. This is the website where i found it :

    The Second Entry has a download. Download it then extract the files to the desktop. Dont worry if you get errors when the program runs it will fix them, if they come up just press enter to keep going. Once the program completes install the driver again and it should work as it did for me.

    If you cant get to that website heres the post from it:
    "Ok, once again i checked updates for HP My Display/Drivers, and found this:

    Here is a direct link to fix for "Access Denied" issue (HP LCD Monitors & Vista):

    Download The fix contains 3 files including this readme. All must be in to the same folder.
    • readme.txt - This file
    • RestoreDisp.exe - Executable required to restore permissions. DO NOT RUN THIS FILE
    • DVRFIX.exe - Run this file in Administrator mode after reading the instructions completely
    To perform the fix do the following:
    1. Extract all files in to a folder on your desktop
    2. Open the folder, right click on the DVRFIX.exe file and choose "Run As Administrator"
    3. Follow the on screen instructions. When complete, you should be able to install your drivers

    If you find this helpful, please let me know.

    I fixed this issue manually (from registry), about month ago.
    But gladly i found this help file, by mistake. emotion-1.gif
