Reinstalling the wireless adapter

vista have this problem...

first, switch off computer and remove physically card from the computer, then de-install all possible traces of it, run ccleaner and clean the computer as well as registry.
go to d-link site and download newest drivers for your adapter, and os (vista). unfold software to c:/dlink

switch off computer again, re-install card and re-power the computer.

when automatic software install start, select manual install, point to newly created folder c:/dlink and select appriopriate driver from there, install.

this procedure usually solves the problem, vista try to instal generic windows drivers not specific hardware drivers, to prevent occurence of that, disable automatic updates in vista, and once a month or so, do only and only security updates from windows, never, ever update your hardware drivers from windows as these are just generic drivers generating more problems than solving. hope this help.

I have window 7 and I can not install my printer. It is telling me the system can not find the file specified.

Check your network status. The driver is found by Windows Update and the computer needs to be connected to the internet.

Windows Update also needs to be set to at least check for updates. Setting Windows Update to automatically install updates is the most convenient. Click on the Start button and in the Search Programs and Files box, enter change device installation. Click on Change Device Installation Settings. In the Window that opens. select Yes, do this automatically (recommended) if it isn't already selected. Click Save Changes. Restart the computer if it prompts you to do so.

If Windows Update is set to download but not install updates, go into Windows Update and look for an HP update in the list. Check for new updates if you do not see it.

I hope this helps.

My computer is constantly installing Windows updates

They may not be installing properly, choosing to try again every time you turn your computer on.

Be proactive - turn automatic update off ... go to the update site, see what updates want to load, select one or two and do them manually. When you get caught up, turn the auto update back on.

Let me know what hapens.

Thanks for your interest in

How do i install updates

Some updates need to be installed separately, the system restarted, and then more updates are being downloaded and installed.

You can always open the "Windows Update" from Start Menu, or alternatively open Internet Explorer and choose Tools -> Windows Update, and do what the site tells you to. You will see all the updates available and still needing to be installed, and also information if a given update needs to be installed separately.

Good luck :)

Excessive windows updates

Windows is sometimes very annoying, I believe the update configuration file is probably corrupted. You can download the SP2 manually here.
You can also change your update settings to "install updates without prompting so that" so that it will install updates in the background without disturbing you.

I installed an update to my computer last night and when i turned it on today it tells me no sound device is installed. I have an HP Pavilion dv6305us Entertainment Notebook PC. It runs on Windows Vista....

Tell your PC to scan for hardware changes, and see if it will "discover" your sound device.
If it does, great, if it doesn't, reinstall the sound drivers.

If none of that works, do a system restore to just before the update you installed.
And remember not to install that update again.
You may also want to check the MS Knowledge Base to see if they have any special notes on the last update you installed. Just do a search on the update that was installed (you'll find it in the add / remove programs list).
