If I plug it into the laptop it makes the sound when a USB device is plugged in. It says found new hardware, then it wants to install the hardware with the Wizard all goes well until the wizard tells

It seems the Operating System does not have drivers for your new device or some portion of the drivers are corrupted. If you have the drivers cd for the USB stuff, install the drivers without attaching it to the pc ok. Attach the device when prompted or when completed. Make sure that any previous installations of the software and/or the device should be uninstalled. Good luck

Trying to install HP C4280, fatal error comes up during installation and will not complete

To install that printer, connect the data cable (Maybe USB?) to the PC and follow the instructions on the "New Hardware found" wizard, then supply the CD that came with the printer and make the wizard look for the drivers there. When the HP install program pops up (Gray sandglass), choose "Decline" or "Not agree" to the terms of the license and continue with the "New hardware wizard" installation.
The printer driver will get installed and none of the HP useless programs.

Pc doesn't recognise the usb

Are you using vista? Please go to this website and download the Sony Ericsson 2.10.46.exe. If not vista still go to this site and you will find updated software. It will fix the issue. That should do it.

To know my the free download software of my phone

For those who are having connection problem with moto

Step 1. Get the software

Go to Motodev and download Motorola USB Driver (you will need to register)

Also download your chosen p2k program e.g. p2kMan

It would also be a good idea to locate RSD Lite – you will have to use Google to find this as it is classed as warez and we cannot give

Step 2. Install the driver program

Extract the file “Motorola_EU_Driver_Installation.msi” from the zip file you downloaded.

Double click on this file and the installation will start.

Click next and the EULA will appear

Click on "I Agree" (obviously having read the agreement first Angel), then next.

The program will now install

Click close to end the install procedure

During the installation process you may see the following screen 1 or
more times

Should this appear hit "Continue Anyway"

Step 3: Install the drivers

You will now have a new program group in your start>programs menu -"Motorola Driver Installer", with a shortcut called "Motorola Driver Installer.exe" within it.

Make sure the phone is disconnected at this time.

Run this program, and it will check whether the drivers are already
installed, when this is complete you will see the following screen

Under "Operation Mode" (lower left), select "Clean and Reinstall" (the bottom option).

Then hit "Start"

The program will then do its thing. When it is finished hit "Exit"

You may get the message about Windows Logo testing again - if you do hit "Continue Anyway"

Step 4: Connect the phone

Make sure the phone is turned on then connect the USB cable. It is best
to use a USB port on the rear of the PC rather than front mounted ports
as these sometimes connect to the motherboard via a hub

When you plug the phone in Windows will find new hardware - Motorola
Phone (V3), then Motorola USB Modem. The installation should
complete without intervention.

You should now be able to connect using Mobile Phone Tools, the phone
should also be charging.

We now want to install the P2k Drivers. First make sure MPT is not

Now with the phone still connected run one of the P2k programs, I generally use P2kMan - but thats just me. Its best not to use p2k Tools as this may start in AT mode and confuse matters.

When you do this Windows should find several new devices and after a
short while the new hardware wizard will run. In the rare event the new
hardware wizard does not start, install and run RSD Lite.

The first screen to appear asks if you wish to connect to Windows Update

Select "No, not this time", then click on "Next"

Choose "Install the software automatically (Recommended)", then hit "Next"

The driver for Accessories Interface is then installed, after a short
while the following screen is displayed

Click "Finish"

The new hardware wizard will then run again

Once again select "No, not this time", then click on "Next"

This time the wizard asks for drivers for "Data Logging MCU Interface".

Choose "Install the software automatically (Recommended)", then hit

Again the drivers are installed then after a short while the
following screen is displayed.

Click "Finish"

The new hardware wizard will then run for a third time

At the first screen select "No, not this time", then click on "Next" in the same way as before

This time the wizard asks for drivers for "Test Command Interface".

Choose "Install the software automatically (Recommended)", then hit "Next"

Again the drivers are installed then after a short while the following screen
is displayed.

Click "Finish"

Your P2k drivers are now installed and the P2k programs should
recognise the phone

Remember if you connect using a different USB port in the future,
Windows will recognise new hardware and you will need to repeat these

Step 5: Flash Interface Device

If at anytime you choose to flash your phone you will need the Flash
Interface device installed. This device is used to communicate with the
phone while it is in bootloader mode.

In order to run the hardware installation wizard for this device you
can do one of two things. Either use RSD Lite to flash the phone as
normal (browse to the file and hit start) and RSD Lite will switch the
phone to bootloader mode for you. Alternatively you can start in
bootloader manually (hold * and # while turning the phone on), then
connect the USB cable.

Either way the new hardware wizard will run again.

As before select "No, not this time", then click on "Next"

Choose "Install the software automatically (Recommended)", then hit

Again the drivers are installed then after a short while the following screen
is displayed.

Click "Finish" and you are done - you can now flash your phone with RSD

Once more remember if you connect using a different USB port in the
future, Windows will recognise new hardware and you will need to repeat these steps

Installation for canon pixma ip 1500

Hey you again, you rated me yesterday Inappropriate. Actually, fixya expert afraid to give some solution because you will rated us Inappropriate even the problem is came from you where you was not clearly stated your problem.

Ok, but anyway I am still to help you, Is it the problem goes to the manual installation you need or the driver instead?

Printers used to be the bugbear of computer users. They were difficult to set up and ornery in operation. That's no longer the case and it's likely you'll have no problems getting your printer up and running. This is particularly the case if your printer comes packaged with your computer system or if you stick to well-known brands such as Hewlett-Packard, Epson, Lexmark and Canon.
Connecting a printer involves four steps:
  1. Unpacking your printer, removing any packaging material and installing the ink or toner cartridge. Refer to your printer's instructions to guide you.
  2. Connecting the printer cable to the printer and to the back of your computer.
  3. Connecting the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  4. Installing the printer driver and any additional software. The printer driver is a piece of software that tells your computer how to interact with your printer.
If your printer comes as part of your system, you may find that its driver is already installed. In that case, all you'll need to do is unpack it, connect the printer cable and power cord and switch on your computer.
geekgirl.tip: Get a cable One word of warning: Make sure you purchase a printer cable! Often, this is not included in your computer system, despite it being an essential item. You'll need the correct type of cable for your printer: If it's a USB-enabled printer, you need a USB cable (note, the new USB 2 cables work with older USB 1 printers, too; so if in doubt, get a USB 2 cable); if it's a parallel printer, you'll need a parallel cable.
Make sure you get a cable long enough to reach easily from your printer to your computer. However, you should avoid cables longer than 10', because long cables can cause problems with communication between printer and computer. Try to position your printer so a 6' (or shorter) cable can make the connection.
Follow the wizard If your printer's software has not been pre-installed, read any installation instructions that accompany your printer and follow those instructions. If no instructions are provided, follow this procedure:
(Note: This procedure applies to printers which use a parallel connection. If your printer uses a USB connection, you should connect it while Windows is running and it will be recognised.)
  1. Make sure you have your original Windows CD-ROM handy. You may need it.
  2. Switch the computer off.
  3. Connect the parallel printer cable to your computer.
  4. Connect the printer's power cord to a power outlet.
  5. Switch on the printer and the computer.
  6. In most cases, Windows will detect that you've attached a new hardware device and it will launch the Add Hardware Wizard and attempt to search for the appropriate software. If the wizard doesn't launch and Windows appears to ignore your printer, you can launch the Add Printer wizard yourself by clicking the Start button, selecting Control Panel, clicking Printers And Other Hardware, and then clicking Add Printer.
  7. If the printer is directly connected to your computer, select the Local Printer Attached To This Computer option. If you will be connecting to the printer via a network connection, select the Network Printer option, then click Next.
  8. The wizard will first try to search for any Plug and Play devices (these are components that should, by rights, automatically notify Windows when they're first connected). If the wizard discovers your printer, it will display further instructions to complete the installation. You may need to restart your system to finish.
