HP Solution center doesn't start...

I am using Windows Vista. As soon as Windows opens, I have recently begun getting a series of windows stating :-----
Please wait while Windows configures the Solution center.
Deleting that window, brings up the next :---
The feature you are trying to use is on a CD-ROM or other removable disc that is not available.Insert the ''Solution Center'' disc and click O.K.
Deleting that window, brings up another :----
An installation package for the product Solution Center cannot be found. Try the installation again, using a valid copy of the installation package ‘SolutionCenter.msi’

Deleting that, the others come up again in the same sequence, andeventually disappear after deleting each as they appear again..

Can you advise how I may stop this sequence appearing each day ?

P.S. I tried to remove SolutionCenter from the list of the startup programs (by msiconfig), but i didn't find it. What else could i do?

I'll assume that you actually have an HP printer (or scanner) attached to this unit.

Uninstall the HP drivers and software which came with your HP printer (or HP scanner) and reinstall it from the driver discs (reinstalling the HP software over the existing installation may take care of it also). If you don't have the discs that came with your HP equipment please post what model you have and I will track down a link for you to download the necessary stuff for reinstall.

No audio output device installed hp pavillion dv2000


Suggest reinstall the audio driver.

[Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device

The device is the audio chipset.
The Windows operating system was not stated.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit ]

Stating HP Pavilion dv2000 is just stating the model series.
When installing a Driver, there are TWO main things needed;

1) Operating System (Which version of Windows)
2) Model number
For HP and Compaq computers we will go with the Product Number.

On the Bottom of the laptop is a white Service Tag.
P/N = Product Number

Please post back in a Comment, and I'll step by step you through downloading AND installing the audio driver.

Also go to Device Manager, and look to see what audio device is used.

WinXP:
Start > Right-click on My Computer > left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list.
Left-click on the Hardware tab. Left-click on Device Manager.

In Device Manager, left-click on the + sign to the left of -
Sound, video and game controllers

What does it state?
Intel?
Conexant?

Win Vista:
Click on the Windows logo button (Start), then right-click on Computer. Follow the above.

How do I install Windows 7 on my Acer Aspire 5536


The FIRST thing people need to do when proceeding to install Windows 7, is to make SURE there are compatible DRIVERS.

IF the computer manufacturer does not offer Windows 7 compatible drivers, for the computer in question, DO NOT load Windows 7.

[ Drivers are small pieces of software written, so that the Operating System can 'communicate' with a device.

Windows Vista, and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
Audio (Sound), Graphics, LAN, and so on, use a chipset.
This chipset is a device.

Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit ]

Fortunately I looked, and Win7 drivers are available for the Acer Aspire 5536 Notebook PC,

http://support.acer.com/us/en/product/default.aspx?tab=1&modelId=1119

BEFORE you install Win7, click on the Drivers, and download the compatible drivers for THE device in your computer, and the matching Win7 driver.

Burn them to a CD disk. Have ready to install.

[ Acer doesn't list what each driver is, until you click on Download, at the right side of the driver file.

Let's take Audio for one example.
There are 4 Audio drivers listed.

Click on Download at the right side, of the first Audio driver listed.
In the small window that comes up, you can see it is for WinXP.
XPx86. (Windows XP 32-bit)

It is also for a RealTek audio device. (Chipset)
(All the Audio drivers are)

Click on the second Audio driver listed. (Click on Download)
This one is for Vista
The third one is for Windows 7 that is 64-bit, OR 32-bit.

(Look at the Windows 7 carton. Does it state 32-bit, or 64-bit?
Doesn't matter for the above driver, as it is for both, but other drivers may be just for 32-bit, OR 64-bit.)

Go to Device Manager, and see what each device is.
(Click on the Windows start button, click on Control Panel, click on Performance and Maintenance, then on Device Manager)

Write them down. Download, and burn to disk the proper drivers ]

NOW, with the proper drivers available, proceed to install Windows 7.

(I have been told that some Vista drivers do work for Windows 7.
Need to make sure, as once you install Windows 7, it is a bear to try to reinstall Vista, if Win7 does not work)

Windows does not like to be written over, and Vista has a security measure that is better than previous versions.

Go to BIOS Setup, and in Boot Options, make sure the first boot device is CDROM.

How?
As soon as the computer is started look down at the bottom of the screen.
You won't see the P.O.S.T. screen, but the Acer logo screen.
At the bottom of this screen, states what key to press to enter BIOS Setup.

(Power-On Self Test)

It may state something along the lines of;
enter Setup, or
enter BIOS Setup, or
Enter CMOS Setup. (Old. Doubt it)

This screen goes by f-a-s-t.
You probably won't be able to press the correct key in time, to enter BIOS Setup.
No problem.

Simply restart the computer. As soon as it restarts, start tapping on the appropriate key. (In 2 second intervals)

You may hear a beeping as you are tapping on the key. This is a Stuck Key Error Code. Ignore it.

Should be the DELete key, or F2.

When you enter BIOS Setup you CANNOT use your mouse anymore. You use the Keyboard.

The navigation guide is at the bottom of every screen in BIOS Setup.
It doesn't state navigation guide, however.

There are two major BIOS manufacturers. AMI (American Megatrends Inc), and Award/Phoenix.

There are several versions of each, so I cannot guide you directly.
However if you need help just post what you see, and I will guide you.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

It is possible, but you'll need the Windows Vista and you should know how to install windows (in your case, windows vista) If you are doing it yourself, you can follow this instructions (click here).

But I don't recommend doing it yourself if you are not good at it, you may damage or if you mess it up, the engineer will charge you more fee (it's usual in India).

There are many Toshiba Service Center in Mumbai and you know there are also many private engineers available in Mumbai (Pickup or Onsite visit).

One of the recommended service center is (click here)

Or you can use this website to locate all Toshiba Service Centers in Mumbai (Toshiba India), open the link, select State as Maharashtra and City as Mumbai and click "Go" all the available Toshiba Service Centers will be displayed with their full contact details including addresses and phone numbers.

If you need further help, let me know.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

This sounds like the dreaded Windows Vista Black Screen of Death (KSOD). you might have a bad hard drive, but even more likely some software or a driver is causing a problem and caused Vista to get stuck. The repair will not work. You might be able to run a complete repair from the Windows Vista CD, if you have one. If you are not too experienced, take it to a reputable computer service center. If you are at all technical and have time, google your problem and you will see thousands of similar users with same problems.

This is one reason Microsoft released Windows 7 so soon.

Here's a link to HP's website outlining all the ways to Recover your Laptop and reinstall your Windows XP Operating System back to factory default including how to create a set of your own Recovery Disks:
