Re: Help!!

I would rather advice you that you should updates the motherboard chips of your system. You can download that in the manufacturer's website. How ever, its pretty cool if i know the model of your motherboard or service tag of your system for me to search and for you to download.

You can do this first;
On the other hand; there some problems arising from the gadget you installed and the usb ports connection.

you can try this. transfer the connection from other port of your system. do this into some other port.

If the problem persist; maybe your gadget cannot be recognize by the computer, Did you try connecting your stuff to other computer? If work to other computer; obvious

If you go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs do you see it listed? If not, it did not install properly - try again. If you see it there, uninstall it, restart your computer and try installing it again.

I installed xp on my hp a6683w and it does not have the driver for the network card. i cannot get it from hp because it was a vista machine. where can i get the driver

Most HP and Compaq computers come with full versions of Microsoft Windows preinstalled. Microsoft has an extensive library of software, drivers, and updates available for free download. HP and many of its partners work with Microsoft to provide drivers through Windows Update. Use the following steps to download drivers, software, and updates by using Windows Update:

  1. Connect to the Internet and see (in English).
  2. Follow the directions in the Windows Update page to set up Windows Update and install the software updates.
  3. Be aware of the following tips when using Windows Updates:
    • Install all critical updates first to help keep your Internet connection secure.
    • If you are looking for drivers, they can be found as optional updates from the list of available updates.
    • Due to file sizes, number of updates, and download time, use Windows Update when the computer is not being used for other activities.
For more detailed information about using Windows Update to install drivers and get updates for Windows software, see the HP Support document Updating Drivers and Software with Windows Update .
NOTE: Another great way to quickly get updated drivers from Microsoft is to open Device Manager, right-click the name of the device, and select Update Driver Software . Updating a driver from Device Manager c01162470.gif

I have installed safeIT file shredder in my computer,thereafter I have uninstall it but it still lies in my system ,tell me how to get rid off it?

Hi there.
You have to manually delete the leftover files that the uninstall didn't delete, just brows the PC for the associated files (from program files etc) and pop them in the recycle bin.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

No Internet Connection after Installing Norton 360

I had same problem. I went to Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools\System Restore. I picked date before which Norton 360 was installed. It got my internet connection back. I'm not even going to try Norton anymore. Time better spent trying to get my money back.

My laptop Not reading any CD/DVD

Go to Device Manager by "right-clicking" on "MY COMPUTER", and choose "MANAGE". Once the new window comes up, look for "DEVICE MANAGER" on the left hand side of the screen and click on it.

On the right hand side of the screen you will see a long list of items, look for DVD/CD DRIVES and click on the + sign next to it to expand that list. Now look for your DVD/CD drive and right click on it and choose uninstall. Then restart your computer, when it restarts it will say "FOUND NEW HARDWARE, ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL" wait for it to finish and tell you that it's ready and try to insert a disc. If it does not read it, the Drive might be bad so you might have to replace it...Good Luck!

Can't reinstall Winfax Pro 10.03

I know your grief. I, too, had difficulty reinstalling Winfax Pro after I removed it from my computer. I kept getting the same error that you speak of.

In desperation, I contacted Norton, who took over Winfax Pro. They said they don't offer support, don't know who give it and did not seem to care.

I then started to just search the internet, hoping that I would find someone who could help. I happened to stumble upon GetFaxing at

I felt I had nothing to lose, so I signed up. The very next day, I was online with one of their techs who took over my computer remotely and with the many Winfax problem solving tools that they had, got the program reinstalled. I don't know what they did, but they even recovered my fax directory and my messages which I thought were deleted.

I don't normally post to message boards, but I thought the greatest tribute I could pay GetFaxing, was to tell others.

I know what I went through and know that this will help somebody else.

I don't know what made these people decide to start offering this technical support, but they are offering a much needed service. I can tell that from surfing the net and seeing so many people with Winfax problems and no help around.

You pay for their service, but they are very reasonable for the knowledge that they have. Besides, whatever it costs, it is better than taking your time trying things on your own and nothing works.

I guarantee they can correct your problem. I strongly urge you to contact them. Your worries will be over.

Cannot uninstall WinFax Pro 10 even after doing manual uninstall.

For the next 12 hours you can download for free cleanse UnInstaller Pro At Giveaway of the Day. Install it and then keep attacking every bit of Symantec you find on your computer. You may have to go back several times and keep on deleting more pieces of the programs that were there but this truly works. It's the only program I found so far that could get rid of WinFax Pro including the stuff provided by Norton. Good luck
