GE Retractable USB Number Pad doesn't "Plug n Play"

GE Retractable USB Number Pad does NOT "plug n play" with my Windows XP laptop. Wizard says to use CD that comes with hardware...of course there isn't one. No driver found on line. Help! Should I take this SKU number 98757 back to TARGET?

    Can you plug other usb devices such as flash drives? Have you tried on another usb input? Model of your Compaq laptop and specs would help in trying to solve the issue.

I would take it back if it did not come with a driver. any hardware device is useless if the operating system does not know how to operate it, and if XP has no native driver support for it, then it will need a driver on a disc, and if there was no driver software for the device, then the device is of no use to you. But, I would look for any "number pad" driver and give it a try.

I have just purchased a Belkin N600 modem router. I have attached my Canon i850 printer to the USB port on the router but I cannot print. The green USB LED is not illuminated. Can you help, please? ...


I think you need to connect your printer to the router using an ethernet cable and not a USB cable. Ethernet cables are plug-and-play cables and doesn't require you to install a software. If you really need to connect your printer using a USB cable, you need to connect it to your PC so that the PC will run the installation wizard to install the USB cable. Of course the router cannot run installation wizard to the printer or the printer cannot run installation wizard to the router.

Installing a web cam creactive


Hello,
  • 1)Insert the software and drivers disk into your CD/DVD drive. If an auto play window pops open, select the "Install" option. This will begin the installation wizard automatically. If the auto play option doesn't start, go on to Step 2.

    2) Double-click on the computer icon on your desktop or navigate to "My Computer" by opening up the Start menu and selecting "My Computer." A window will pop open. Right-click on the drive were the disc is located, for example DVD Drive (F:). Select the "Install" option to start the installation wizard.

  • 3)Plug your webcam into the desired USB port. If you have not installed the drivers, the device driver wizard will begin searching for the drivers on its own. Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 utilize the plug-and-play option and will automatically find the drivers for you. However, it is recommended to install the drivers from the disc or from the Creative Labs website.

Mac does not recognize my retractable number pad


Maybe it is not recognized by the MAC operating system. Just download driver associated with MAC operating system and install it. Some hardware need software driver to be able to work. Some just plug and play.

Dynex wireless mouse DX-PWLMSE won't work


The mouse should be Plug and Play. Did you install the drivers before plugging the mouse's receiver in? The PC has to have the drivers first in order to take advantage of the Plug and Play capability. If you plugged the mouse's receiver in before installing the drivers, unplug the mouse receiver, uninstall the driver, reboot your PC, reinstall the driver, then plug the receiver in and you should be fine.

Otherwise, press the Connect button on the receiver first, and then the Connect button on the mouse, and that should establish the connection. You don't need to disable your touch pad in order to use the mouse.

Cordless Numeric Pad


If you are using a cordless numeric pad, it likely came with a USB connector. Plug the USB connector in. This should automatically install with Windows plug and play.

You should then be able to punch the numbers in just like you would on a keyboard when you have excel open.
