Hi dorys_brian,

you may go to your device manager first, right click on the first item (saying: computer) then click on the option that says "detect hardware changes". once this is done and you are online, your computer will ask for drivers which can be found in the internet. this is strongly effective for vista. but please note that if you change OS from XP to Vista, some hardware that worked for xp may not run on vista because of drivers not made for the said hardware to work on vista.

hope this helps, lemme know if you need more info.

regards,

voodoo

Cd drive does not work


Maybe because you are just using a cd drive and your recovery disc is a dvd disc?
please reply so I can help you more.

If it is a dvd disc then you need to have a dvd drive to recognize it.

You can just borrow an external dvd drive from a friend to temporarily resolve your problem. :)

Disc drive stopped working


A hard drive can stop working just like any other electronic device when it becomes faulty.
First go into the BIOS configuration and check if the hard disk is detected. If not it could be faulty.
Next re-seat the hard drive, it just may need connecting again to make proper electrical connection.
If it still does not work, then remove the hard drive and plug it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a working computer's USB port. If this computer cannot see it as an external USB hard drive nor can you open the folders and files then the hard drive is definitely faulty.
To get the laptop functioning again, replace the hard drive, install Windows on the new hard drive together with the laptop's device drivers and your programs.

Unable to get Wireless to turn on


Sandy,
What was the earlier problem?
Do you think it is/was/might be related?
How did you get past the issue? If you formated, you have to go through "Software Setup" find it at Start, All Programs, Software Setup. (tc1000) or if you restored with the factory discs (tc1100) then it should be done. If a tech "restored" your tablet with other than the factory restore discs, then Q menu may be impaired or nonfunctional.
Is the card actually there?
Are the cables connected?
Is the card the original hp card? Some others will not work with the Q Menu.
Go to hp.com, navigate to the tc1100 support page and download all drivers or recent updated drivers.
Install the updates and you should be fixed.
HP will sell you restore discs for $10.72 (thats what I paid last fall) that will install the correct drivers for the unit. Cheap at twice the price. You will need a keyboard (USB generic will work if you don't have the original detachable) and an optical drive (USB CD Drive) basically to do this.
My friendly local tech is at $50 for basic service, and if you can back up to another PC (cat 5 cable connection is fastest) or a card, then a reformat never hurts a thing, kills many troubles too!
Best Luck, Blaino
