Pcs dont tell you its out of date they either tell you its not installed or its fine. i think another driver software is telling you this, if everything is working fine then just ignore it, you dont have ti obay every message your pc tells you.

Need graphics upgrade


Your Mobo supports PCI and PCI Express x16 Graphics Cards. Keep in mind some Graphics Cards require a MIN. Power Supply Unit, PSU. How much Memory do you have installed? That a easy upgrade. You can find some useful info here: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00864946&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&cc=us&dlc=en&lc=en&product=3340228#N144 ALSO, your choise of cards is good Take a look at this for example: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100006662%2040000048&IsNodeId=1&Description=graphic%20cards&bop=And&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20. ON the left side of the page you can select PCI or PCI e x16, which is a faster slot/card. You can also Upgrade your CPU, in the HP support page it list the Compatible CPU. Here is a Little freeware program that may help: http://www.filehippo.com/download_speccy/. For further assistance respond to post.

Bear in mind that your antique machine dates back to 2003. If you are installing hardware that is newer than your OS, there is a strong chance that drivers do not exist for it.

Check whether the HDD is visible from the BIOS startup menu! If it is then you are looking at XP driver issues - or hardware configuration. I assume that the drive in question is a secondary drive? If so, the old ATA 66/100 IDE interface on these machines is fussy about the drives and each drive may have to be setup with a different ID 0/1 using jumpers on the drives. It is easy to overlook this part of the setup!

Here's an article describing how to do this: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/install-ide-hard-drive/

I upgraded optiplex GX260 with Windows Vista. I lost video resolution on the monitor. Can you email me the link for the driver? Thanks, paa


Vista has a cutoff date on desktop computers for supporting drivers for video.
Your options are to go back to XP, or see if your computer has a spare
PCI slot, if so then buy a PCI VGA board that is Vista supported.
When you open your case and install the board, bootup and Vista
will detect the new VGA board and install the required drivers.

When I download a program an click to install it a box pops up saying the download I am trying to install is not a valid Win32 application. This is a new problem. I have not had any problems downloading in...


This error message could be caused by a number of things. Generally it's because the program being downloaded is corrupt or didn't download completely. Have you tried a different browser to do the downloads? If it's a very large download you may encounter problems with losing packets. A download manager may help.

Also, you may want to try doing a restore to system restore point to a date when you weren't having this issue. System Checkpoint dates (in bold) are usually very safe points to restore to. I would also recommend a virus scan and if you don't have this utility and are able to download and install it (yes I know that's your current problem, but you can download it to a flashdrive from a friend's comp and install it), I'd get Glarysoft Utilities and run the one-click maintenance which will fix any registry errors. It's free and is a great way to keep your machine running well.

If any of this helps correct your problem I would appreciate a rating. People here seem to take the help and don't show any appreciation by taking the time to rate the help.

What type of video card may I order to go in this unit


hi, im new with the whole computer knowledge but i have done some research seeing as i have this comp as well. just like me your needing to upgrade the comp to be more sufficient and up to par with todays upgrades seeing as this comp is old and prolly got it at Best Buy. but if your going to do some heavy media, gaming etc. i suggest getting a new comp that is up to date with todays changes. only reason why is the video card you require for this comp is a PCI which i have read is the lowest quality and probably soon to be obsolete that many programs dont support anymore. dont get me wrong you can still buy them, but dont expect high quality performance. remember you need a PCI not PCI Express (PCIE) to fit the slot that your motherboard has. ive done alot of searches for PCI video cards, i suggest just to google it or check newegg.com. im still actually looking around myself. im sure if you have this comp your also looking for an inexpensive part. anyways i hope this helped.

my upgrades are:
500 hard drive
60 slave
2g memory

What is the PCI device in device manager that is missing drivers? I had to reformat, have got all drivers but this oneI have an acer t180 desktop


Your best bet is to run a program like DriverAgent.com. This will scan your laptop and let you know which drivers are out of date and missing. You can also download the latest drivers.

How do I get hpzjrdo.1 back on my PC


It is an issue with PCI communicator or Network adapter.

Go to Device manager, look for network adapter / PCI communication controller, right click on it and click on update driver. If it does not work, right click again and select uninstall. After the uninstallation, restart the computer, it will get installed automatically (If you are still using the orignal O/s sent with the PC). If this does not resolve the issue you can try a system restore, before the date issue occoured, or can go to START - RUN - type "MSCONFIG" click on Startup tab, and click on disable all, check the list for any program you want to start with the PC (Like antivirus software) put a check mark on the check box. (MSCONFIG is a workaround).

All the best.

Shrey

System was rebuilt years ago under warranty (new motherboard, I believe). Years later I realize that USB is no longer 2.0. How to I install/upgrade/activate this?


Hello,

You can install a USB 2.0 PCI card in an empty expansion slot. I suspect that your system was originally USB 1.1.

Hope it helps.

Upgrading my compaq evo d51s


A ram upgrade could help, however you may need to think about upgrading your CPU also. First check if you can upgrade your CPU. Your best option may be to upgrade to a new computer altogether.

If AHCI is not enabled by the motherboard and chipset, SATA controllers typically operate in "IDE emulation" mode which does not allow features of devices to be accessed if the ATA/IDE standard does not support them. Windows device drivers that are labeled as SATA are usually running in IDE emulation mode unless they explicitly state that they are AHCI. While the drivers included with Windows XP do not support AHCI, AHCI has been implemented by proprietary device drivers.[1] Windows Vista[2] and Linux with kernel version 2.6.19 onward[3] have native support for AHCI.
