Re: corrupt driver

One method you can use if you have another computer is you can take the hard drive out of the machine, and connect it to an external enclosure, Ive seen them as cheap as $10. After it is connected to another machine, you can download the driver file that is being reported as corrupt or missing to that computer, extract the file and copy it back to that location on the laptop's drive. This may be a little bit difficult if driver files like ntoskrnl or ntldr go missing, you have technically had your bootstrap loader go bad. There is the possibility that you can copy those files from any other machine running the same version of windows to replace the corrupt files. The only problem with this is that this can occasionally cause more problems than it can fix, because during the installation process these files get embedded with the information about the computer it was installed on, which can panic the registry or driver lists.

Computer shutdown halfway operating

More than likely your laptop is overheating and it is shutting down to protect itself.

Check and make sure your air vent is clean and unobstructed. Get a can of compressed air and blow through it to clear out any debris.

Worse case scenario is it could be your Nvidia chip that is malfunctioning and causing the laptop to shutdown also. There is a known issue with the older Nvidia chips that they would get overheated and causing the solder joints to crack and separate from the motherboard. This would cause the system to shut down and can't start up. Only way to fix that particular issue is by replacing the motherboard unfortunately.

Do i gotta be on line to reboot harddrive?

No, you do not need to be connected to the Internet.
Just power up your computer.
If the computer does not find the operating system on the hard disk then either the hard disk is faulty or the system files are corrupted ot missing.

How to look for registry file dats missing in d system'?


I would go to Start and type in registry, click on registry and go to properties and do an update on the driver. You can also, just do a search at Start for the missing file.

Registry, if you not aware of, cleans files not used on a regular basis, so to give you more storage. You should be able to retreive your missing files.

Nh82801gb chipset (audio driver)

Installing a program on the computer from disk location least adding the etire features prior to tranfer integration appears to have lost codes also called program drivers. Usually, the disk media from where the program was installed would have the remaining codes to complete intergration for regular functionality. Reinsert the media either CD rom or DVD rom in disk driver to perform repairs or reinstallation altogether. In the situation where the computer identifies the missing files as driver to be specific, the CD rom or DVD rom is capable of integrating missing feature by search browsing to ascertain a file that may have been speficified. Also, computer programming websites usually commonly requested codes or programs that integrate into the computer to finalise activities. For example ascertain the type of program that requires code drivers to attain from the internet. Usually the code driver is not the entire program only a missing component of the program either codes that allow audio, video, or graphics to display at entensive level or least display at all. Once searching for computer codes on the internet, the brand name of the prorgam least functioning becomes the reference to locate and install the most compartible to attain functionality. For example, locating an audio driver for a window XP system would require refering the computer to attain one compartible since several systems Windows 2000, 98, Vista, 7 would least intergate when downloaded on the computer. Also reference when search for computer drivers is the component that is missing codes. For example, refer that the computer is missing audio drivers also requires to ascertain the name of the audio or sound card to capture the appropiate codes. For example, internet has several generic audio codes that perform on the computer when downloaded only is least compartibel with the default. Searching to replace the defualt requires to knw the details prior to installing from the network. Generic program codes perform on the computer only requires to remove the remnats of the default and finally let the computer recognise a new code has been introduced to replace a prior before functionality is derived. Repairing computers that have malfunct codes requires experts to accomplish for several reasons. First, the computer reports that malfunction has occurs with a prescribed detail also identified as code driver. However, an expert acquires the cause of malfunction to solve the condition where installing drivers of only one of the activities may resolve the condition. Usually a computer technical experts is capable of determining what caused condition , repair, and prevent the device from malfunction an alternate request at later duration. Important complementary requirements to installing program drivers includes recognising the computers hardware software compositions. For example, the computers builtin hardwares would least allow to install a high capacity code driver since overburdens the prior manufacturers invention. Recognising the computers hardware components usually sound card, video card capacities contributies towards installing driver codes. In the situation where an overtasking code driver causes that computer to blank out for example, would require to extract from location and possibly attain another prorgam to restore the conditons. That is reason to perform an observation of the particar missing code to search acquire and install esle causes another malfucnton least related to driver codes.

I updated my window vista OS.When I tried to install my Linksys Router I get the message Error 311 no wired adapter detected


This could be the problem with your network driver which is overwritten by driver from Windows updates.

Try to overwrite by the .ini using device manager.

Get the compatible ethernet driver from your computer manufacture web site if dont have one.

Right click on MyComputer -> Manage -> Device Manager(expand the tree on the left side)

Under Network Adapters choose the ethernet wired adapter -> Update driver -> Choose Manually the .ini from the system where you stored the driver and update it.

Hope it will work fine

Lexmark 4875 finds bad CPU speed

I bought a Lexmark 4875 for mac. It bombs every application when you hit the "print" button. Downloading the fresh driver didn't help, and their support website doesn't address this issue at all.
