Computer does not boot up
The problem maybe the RAM, it could be faulty or just needs reseating to make proper electrical contact.
Reseat the RAM and then boot up your laptop. If it still does not boot up then remove the RAM module/s and take them to your friendly computer repair shop and get them to test the RAM for you.
Just like you sometimes need a mechanic to repair your car, sometimes you do need a technician to diagnose and identify the fault or faults on your computer. Not only does a good service technican have the experience to deal with this type of problem, they also have the equipment that allows them to look at things the average computer user can't see, and he has a collection of replacement parts that can be used to quickly test individual components on your computer.

Coby model 620 mp player i need the drivers it will turn on and the computer was unable too find them


The drivers, made for older windows versions, won't work on a Windows 7 or up machine. Not even in compatibility mode. Microsoft needed to make Windows more secure, so only allows drivers in there modern operating systems when they have a Microsoft certificate. For a certificate the manufactures must use Microsoft protocols, ask Microsoft for certification, and pay for the tests Microsoft does, to check the software is working correct. So no manufacturer will ask for certification of drivers for hardware they no longer sell.
Long story, but unless you can write your driver yourself, or you can find an universal camera driver (not sure something like that exists) you won't be able to use the camera. Nobody does tell you, after you update your OS you also have to buy new hardware to.

I have a Sony VGC-RC310G desktop computer. Two nights ago, I was downloading updates for windows, from the Microsoft website. I turn it off when i went to bed, and restarted the following morning, only...


So, your description said that you turned off the computer during software update process, that sounds not good at all. Updates need to run to completion, or major failure happens.

You did not mention the version of Windows that you are using, so help is limited.

BE aware that a system restore means all data will be overwritten and lost. I suggest that you extract all data before you do anything. remove the hard drive and hook it up to a good computer, via USB and get all of your files and settings.

The machine probably has the restore files on the D:\drive.

I absolutely hate vista....i wasn't able to transfer my microsoft money so had to download quicken and transfer info...then twice now i have had to reinstall quicken because it won't open up...i guess it...


There is a work around to getting Windows XP programs to work under Windows Vista - Virtual PC 2007.

Virtual PC 2007 is a free download from Microsoft and it allows you to install any operating system and run it in a "window" on your Vista desktop.

Download Virtual PC 2007, create a Windows XP virtual machine, install Microsoft Money and transfer in your data. You can install Quicken as well.

The virtual machine will use your PC's actual connections (network, serial and printer but not USB) to connect to devices and the Internet.

Again - this is a work around that is proven to work. One side benefit - you can copy the virtual machine to an external hard drive / USB memory stick and run it on any comptuer that has Virtual PC 2007 installed on it.

Hope this helps

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) That's the issue I'm having with my CD ROM.. I can't even put my system restore disk in to restore...


Do you know how to get to the Device Manager on the control panel? (Start, control panel, system and device manager on Vista, similar on XP.) Go down to the list to CD/DVD drives, and left click on the plus sign next to it. Then right click on the CD drive you are having trouble with, and select "uninstall" and OK when it asks if you are sure. Then reboot your computer. Windows will reinstall the correct driver, which will likely fix your problem.

Having trouble finding driver for Quantum XL6000.


Your USB to serial port should also come with a driver. Check the packaging. You need to install the driver in order for your computer to pick up the adapter.

Laptop screen does not show desktop and remains blank after boot.


This is a driver loading problem, where the OS is trying to load a communication layer for a device which then fails and drives the machine into a steady loop. Unplug all devices and cards from the machine and reboot. If this works normally, you have a device driver problem with one of the things you have plugged in and need to troubleshoot it from there. If it still hangs, I bet you have a bad video driver (or USB driver). Reboot to SAFE MODE and then try changing the drivers for video and USB (and then motherboard drivers if any) to Microsoft standard distribution drivers until you get a normal boot and know which device/driver set are causing the trouble. Then hunt up updated drivers for that device on the web. Vista especially is very driver buggy.

If all else fails, reinstall the operating system using the REPAIR option.

Good luck...
