Where i find Sony C R X 140 E driver for x p ??? In go ogle i didn't find ... only virus ... please help me !!!

Hello friend
You don't need Sony drivers if you are using Windows !!!!!
Go here to Sony for your your cd player.
Click on the 'Dos Drivers' and read the words from there ....'NOTE: Windows operating systems have built in drivers to support your Sony CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM drive as a CD-ROM reader. No additional drivers are normally required once Windows is installed and running. However, you will need additional software to make use of CD Writing and DVD Video playback if your drive supports these functions.'

I suggest you re-install Windows XP from installation disks. after backing up your personal files which you will lose.

You mentioned 'driver booster' Yes ONLY ONLY ONLY EVER download drivers from , the Manufacturers site . Sony in this case,

There are lots of rubbish sites offering drivers this and drivers that. THEY ARE ALL RUBBISH !!!!!!! DON'T EVER EVER USE THEM
I cannot stress it enough tell your friends, tell everybody.

As I say , connect up your cd player and then re-install windows xp or whatever Windows version you have. Windows will automatically install its OWN drivers for your player.

Better still friend... buy a more up-to -date dvd r/w combi.player They are really cheap these days.

Video card has a problem because windows cannot load the drivers (code 31)

Error code 31 is an error displayed in the device manager when the drivers are messed up. "This device is not working properly because Windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)." This code will appear when the graphic card drivers are having issues.Protecting Drivers

To protect your computer system and drivers, always create a restore point before downloading or updating any program.
Right click "My Computer" and select "Properties."
Look under the "System Protection" tab in the System Properties popup box.

Click on the "Create" bottom to set a Restore Point when the computer is healthy and running well. Good computer maintenance means setting a point once a month.

Name the point with a phrase that has meaning to you, like "before driver update."
If a corrupt driver sneaks onto your computer, this Restore Point might be your last defense before you have to re-install the entire operating system.

This error code will only appear in the Device Manager.
Right click "My Computer" and select "Properties" from the menu.

Click "Device Manager" and expand "Display adapters."
Right click on the graphics card and choose "Properties."

Under the "General" tabs is the Device status notification box.
This is where the error message will appear.

Driver Update When you're updating or downloading a graphics card driver, the drive might not install properly. Corrupt files will cause drivers to not load and the message will appear.

In the case of downloaded driver problems, remove the offending driver and re-install from a different download.

Open "Device Manager" and find the problem graphic card entry.
Right click the device and pick "Uninstall" from the menu.

Reboot the computer to force the system to try to restore the driver.
System Restore
When there are major issues with the graphics card drivers, a system restore is one option to fix the problem.

Open up the "Start" menu and type "System Restore" in the run box.
The computer looks for any entry containing "System Restore."

Click "System Restore" under the Programs listing.
This will start the program, and you can restore the computer back to a point when the graphics card drives were working.

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll through all of your devices
If you see a yellow question or exclamation mark ? ! or a red X you will need to update the drivers for this device right click select update driver/reinstall driver

if you can see your usb device but its not working scroll to Ports(Com&Ltd) right click to update driver
If you computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it.

Rather doing a driver hunt which can take hours
Windows XP/Vista/7/8

it might take some time being a freeware driver solution
Note: it will find all of your outdated drivers

This will automatically search for and find the correct driver you will have to update every driver individually once you update you might be asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore point.

Click no to both of these then continue updating each driver free then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.

The Code 10 error code is generated when Device Manager has insufficient information or the error that is bubbled up by the device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. Additionally, this error may occur when one of the drivers that the device needs does not start. If many drivers are being used by a particular device, it can be difficult to determine the one that failed.

The Code 10 error resembles the following: This device cannot start. (Code 10) The most common resolution is to update the drivers that are associated with the failing device. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. In the device's Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab.
  2. Click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard.
  3. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
Note You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or the driver files may still be installed from the last time that you set up the device. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor's Web site. uparrow.gifBack to the top Typical Code 10 error issuesThe Code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware and device driver issues or to compatibility issues between hardware drivers and additional software that is installed in Windows.

if not then the computer is not set to start up from a cd, you can either enter the setup / bios to change that setting OR right when you power up the computer look at the screen it will say what button to press in order to enter boot menu or bios, it will very likely be button F12 or similar, it should say on the screen when you power on.

if it doesn't, then you need to go into the bios and change the boot order so that the computer starts from the CD first.

after that you should be able to start from the cd and install the OS (Operating system, eg.Windows)

here's some info on how to work the bios:

Repeat step 1 when you have changed the boot order.

7.Ones windows is working you will need the drivers for your computer, they are at the makers website, for hp and compaq. for acer for all other brands go to google and write Brand drivers. Should get you to the right place. Dell is most likely and so on.

Need program to run educational software

You certainly meet the system requirements needed to run that software. I do not know much about Scott Foresman, but you are currently running at very least a 2.0 GHz machine, equivalent of 2000Mhz, more than enough speed needed to run that program.
In terms of installing the program, it seems you have the choice to either install whatever version is available on the disc, or the latest up-to-date version available online.
