My blackberry pearl 8100 cannot connect to the desktop manager, it says it cannot communicate with the device. The phone is also displaying an App error 523.

You will need to reload the operating system of the device.

Make sure you backup the phone however you can. Put as much stuff on the SD card or SIM card as much as you can.

The device operating system will depend on your carrier, you will need to download the operating system from there. Wipe the device, connect it to your computer and it should recognize it.

When Connected select USB PIN: UNKNOWN (If the device still cannot connect to the computer, there may be a windows side driver problem, or more likely there is something wrong with the BB hardware.)

Start the Apploader from the BB desktop Manager

Select a Reinstall of the OS. It will take about an hour to reinstall the OS.

8330 show no driver on desktop

Hi, When the BlackBerry device is connected by Universal Serial Bus (USB) cable to the computer, it is not detected as a BlackBerry Device on the Windows Device Manager. Universal Serial Bus controllers does not show any BlackBerry device, even though it has already been connected to the computer.
It is because Blackberry Desktop Manager drivers are not registering with the Windows operating system.
To resolve this issue,
1) Uninstall and reinstall the BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
2) Connect the BlackBerry device to another desktop computer to determine if the issue could be related to USB port hardware.
3) Update the BlackBerry device drivers manually.
I hope this information will help you.

Windows WiFi Fix,
Windows Zero Wireless Configuration is one of the best programs to run a WiFi in Windows XP or Vista. Most of the other software packages that come with the different adapters have been poor at best in keeping a connection through Windows. Here is the best guide to get you back up and connected.
Windows XP:
Click Start
Right click on My Computer
When a window pops up click on properties
Click on the Hardware tab
Click Device Manager
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

Windows Vista:

Click Start Logo
Right Click Computer
Click Device Manager
Windows will ask you about opening Device Manager Click Continue
Click the [+] next to Network Adapters
Find your wireless card and right click on it.
Click Disable
Windows may warn you that disabling the device may make it stop functioning.
Continue disabling the device.
Wait 30 seconds or so.
Right click on your wireless again and click Enable.
Exit the device manager.
Reconnect to your router.
You should now be able to connect to the internet.

You have to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:

1. Connect the Blackberry into different USB port of the computer.
2. Try connecting the phone in to different computer to test if there's really a problem with the phone.
3. Try using different USB cable for the phone.
4. Check the user manual to see if you need to set it as "Mass Storage Device" before connecting it to the computer.

Otherwise, you need to consult the phone manufacturer for some advise.

Have a great day!

New issue

If you right-click the "unknown" device and select Update Driver, you can force windows to search for the correct driver, and then put in the CD or floppy that came with the network adapter, and tell Windows to look on that CD or floppy. If the installation process didn't work, this might.
