Go to Device Manager and look for a warning sign next to one of the devices. Remove that device and then reboot.

Switch 10. Why doesn't keyboard respond?


I'm assuming you mean Windows 10.. It's possible that when your computer installed Win10 it didn't install the driver for your keyboard. I suggest you find out the name of your keyboard / laptop and search for the drivers online that it may not have downloaded and install them. You should be able to find what you need with a simple google search, " laptopname drivers"

I am cannot install OS Xp on laptop blue Il1,because drivers not support


Actually the problem is that the sata raid drivers of the IL1 is not readily available on the windows XP installer package. Another problem is that you cannot use the drivers on the installation because it uses a disk drive for loading and the IL1 have no disk drive or CDROM with it.

The solution is download or get the sata raid driver for the IL1 placed it on a diskette and attached an external CDROM and an external disk drive on your IL1. Open your notebook place the Windows XP CD in the CDROM, place the sata raid driver diskette on the disk drive. Make sure that the booting priority is set to the usb CDROM.

Upon loading of the Windows XP installation, you will notice a message on the status bar below the screen asking you to press F6 if you want to add additional device, press F6 and follow the instruction on adding the sata raid driver. Then your installation will continue till it finishes the Windows XP installation.

There is another way, but a little complicated. It is making a flashdrive installer of Windows XP OS. an integrating the sata raid driver in the flashdrive Windows XP OS installer. there's a guide somewhere in the internet that discuss the process step by step, I just can't remember on what site. I fount it by searching the net, I'm sure you can find it if you have time.

For now that's all I can share. Good luck friend.

My IBM Think Pad 240x hard disk damage; i brought a hard disk, please give me instruction how i install Windows2000 or Win XP, I have a USB CD rom but not supporting.


First I suggest you install Windows XP but you need the Windows installation CD and the product installation code.
Second, the USB ports and therefore the CD ROM drive will not work until Windows XP has been installed, unless the BIOS supports the USB ports and you can make the USB port/CD ROM as the first boot device.
After installing Windows you need to install the ThinkPad's device drivers.
The same model ThinkPadcan have different types of network, video and audio drivers and unless youknow exactly which one is installed in your ThinkPad, you need to download allthe drivers and install each driver until you find the right driver. When you download thedrivers, write down the device driver and it's file name so you have a recordof which driver you are installing and which directory the unzipped files arelocated on your hard drive. Go to the IBM/Lenovo WEBsite - support/download page and download the latest Windows XP or Vista devicedrivers for your model computer, Use this link: - http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/product.do?template=%2Fproductselection%2Flandingpages%2FbrowseByProductLandingPage.vm&sitestyle=lenovo&brandind=10&validate=true You can download thevarious drivers and then you click on and run the various driver files, theywill then unzip and expand into a sub folder on C:\drivers Then install thevarious drivers from this folder (run the set-up file).

How to install windows OS on Samsung N128 netbook


My Windows XP installation has reached its half-life. (You do know that Windows has a half-life, don’t you? Every installation of Windows naturally degrades along a logarithmic curve until it becomes annoying, then unbearable, then unusable. Each successive revision of Windows has featured a slightly longer half-life. Back in the day, Windows 95 would last me about 3 months, while my copy of Windows XP has lasted me almost 9. I’m not bitter; when you realize that you’re measuring on a logarithmic scale, a factor of 3 improvement is really quite impressive.)
Still, the fact remains that my Windows XP laptop can no longer (a) print, (b) sleep, or (c) change network settings without crashing. This is not multiple choice; it can’t do any of those things. It’s time for a clean re-install.
  1. Back up entire d: drive to iMac upstairs. rsync rocks.
  2. Find Windows XP install disc.
  3. Reboot with Windows XP install disc.
  4. Asked for product activation. Curse Microsoft.
  5. Search my house in vain for my original, 100% legitimate, retail Windows XP box.
  6. Reboot.
  7. Search control panels in vain for a window, dialog, tab, or pane that displays my current product key.
  8. Search Google for “windows xp get current product key”.
  9. Find a utility on a cracker web page in Russia that displays the current product key. This is one of the more lame utilities, since most of the good ones allow you to change it. I don’t wish to change it; I actually have a perfectly good product key, I just don’t know what it is.
  10. Reboot with Windows XP install disc.
  11. Reboot repeatedly as required.
  12. Boot screen. Choose between “Windows XP Professional” and “Windows XP Professional”. Brilliant. Pick one. The wrong one. Boot into fucked Windows XP install. Hard reboot. Pick the right one. Make mental note to hack boot.ini later.
  13. “Welcome to Windows XP. You have no useful programs and no internet access. You have 30 days left for activation. Would you like to activate now?” Yes, I would, but I have no internet access.
  14. Unnecessarily loud and cheerful startup noises. Make mental note to turn off all sounds later.
  15. Search the “Network and Internet Connections” wizards in vain for some way to set up my Linksys wireless card. Having never done a clean install of XP (I previously upgraded from Windows 2000), and having been moderately impressed by the new wireless networking features in XP, I naively assumed this would “just work”. Silly rabbit.
  16. Search my house for my Linksys wireless card driver install disc. Find the install disc that came with the old card, that broke and was replaced by the new-and-improved version 3.0 card. Wonder if that will suffice.
  17. Fight with the “Add New Hardware Wizard” trying to install the obviously inferior drivers off this disc.
  18. Wonder where the “Device Manager” is hiding.
  19. Find the “Device Manager”. Right-click on the unknown device, “Linksys_Instant_Wireless_Card”. Update driver. “Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device. Would you like to search on the internet?” Yes, I’d love to, but I can’t, you moron. Install driver from specific location. Specify WIN2000 folder on old-and-inferior install disc.
  20. “This driver is not digitally signed.” OK.
  21. “This driver may cause your computer to become unstable.” OK.
  22. “This driver may anally rape *********** while pouring sugar down your gas tank.” OK.
  23. Nothing. No connection, no internet access, no acknowledgment of any device whatsoever.
  24. Reboot.
  25. Doesn’t work.
  26. “Take a tour of Windows XP!” I am.
  27. Reboot.
  28. Doesn’t work.
  29. Dig out old wired PCMCIA card. Take computer upstairs. Plug directly into switch. cmd. ipconfig. We have an IP address. ping www.google.com. We have name resolution and internet access.
  30. Fire up Internet Explorer. runonce.msn.com. No. www.linksys.com. Support. Downloads. WPC11. Windows XP. Linksys.com rocks.
  31. Insert Linksys wireless card.
  32. Back to Device Manager.
  33. Uninstall old-and-inferior driver.
  34. Update driver.
  35. “This driver is not digitally signed.” OK.
  36. “This driver may cause your computer to become unstable.” OK.
  37. “This driver may…” OK.
  38. cmd. ipconfig. We have internet access.
  39. “Add your .NET Passport to Windows XP!” No.
  40. Fire up Internet Explorer. www.msn.com. No. www.mozilla.org. Download Mozilla.
  41. Realize I should create an “f8dy” user because it will make my life easier later.
  42. Create “f8dy” as an administrator. Log out. Log in.
  43. Install Mozilla. Yes, I would like to make you my default browser. The world is happiness and glee.
  44. “Take a tour of Windows XP!” Sigh.
  45. “30 days left for activation!” Click. Yes, I would like to activate Windows over an active internet connection, now that I have one. No, I would not like to register with Microsoft. Yes, I have read the privacy statement and agree to give up my computer, my civil rights, and my first-born child. I wasn’t using my civil rights anyway.
  46. Back to Mozilla. Set up IMAP server. Set up SMTP server. Set up LDAP directories. Fiddle with endless settings. Ooh, 1.5 alpha has auto-login scripts in Chatzilla. Make mental note to get on IRC when this is all done and ***** about it to a bunch of Linux-loving hippies.
  47. Search Google for “windows xp tweakui”.
  48. Download TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe. Run TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe. “The procedure entry point GetDllDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll”
  49. Dig. Dig. Dig. Aha. TweakUI requires Windows XP Service Pack 1.
  50. Fire up Internet Explorer again. windowsupate.microsoft.com. “Do you want to install and run Windows Update V4 Control?” Yes. “Always trust content from Microsoft Corporation?” No.
  51. “Windows Update has found 39 critical updates and service packs.” Install now.
  52. “Service Pack 1 must be installed separately from other updates.” OK.
  53. Yes, I agree to bend over, grease up, and accept the End User License Agreement.
  54. Wait. Time passes.
  55. Wait. Time passes.
  56. Wait. Time passes. It is getting dark. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
  57. Reboot.
  58. “Take a tour of Windows XP!”
  59. “Add your .NET Passport to Windows XP!”
  60. Fire up Internet Explorer. “Windows Update has found 26 critical updates.” This we call progress. Install now.
  61. Wait. Time passes. Reboot.
  62. “Take a tour of Windows XP!”

Can not re-install XP. Get "Unmountable boot volume" error.


Usually it's because you're missing the SATA drivers.

Did you slipstream those in too?

Driver error upon boot


You have a corrupt OS, assuming you have XP, you should do a repair installation. Don't worry, none of your files or settings or installed programs will be deleted. You may have to reinstall some old device drivers though. * Insert the XP CD and boot to it * When you see " To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER", go ahead and press ENTER * You will now see an option to repair Windows by pressing "R". Do not select this option - it will only take you to the Recovery Console which is not what we want to do. Instead, choose to continue the installation * When you see the license agreement, press F8 to agree * On the next screen make sure your current XP installation is selected and then press "R" to repair XP * At this point XP will begin to install on top of itself, replacing damaged, missing or altered system files. Follow the instructions on the remaining screens to complete the Repair Install. It will look very much like a normal (new) OS installation. If all goes well your repaired XP installation will remain intact, keeping your personalized settings and installed programs as they originally were.
