Hello.

Not certain if you still need this, but ...

To find and install the driver for the simple communications controller:

Go to Device Manager and click on the pci simple communications controller


Go to Properties and then Details. You will see a code like PCI/VEN_8086&DEV_27D8&SUBSYS...
The VEN code means vendor and the DEV code means device: in the example the vendor is 8086 and the device is 27D8.

Once you have the two codes, go to www.pcidatabse.com. Enter the two codes and you should get the name of your hardware.

From there, you can search for a driver download for your hardware

Hope this helps.

After a virus infected my Dell dimension 2350 (XP), I replaced the hard drive with one running Windows 7. After increasing my RAM, I still have some serious resolution problems on my Samsung 172N moni


Hey Tim,.
Once you installed Windows 7 onto the hard drive you would need to have installed the drivers. The one driver that is needed for resolution is the video card.You can right click on the desktop and then choose screen ressolution to see if you can change the resolution. Unfortunately, Dell does not have any Windows 7 drivers for the Dimension 2350 system.

Thank You,

Acer Aspire 5610Z. Upgraded to Win 7. Screen resolution changes


Hello,

Your laptop was not designed to run windows 7 or be compatible with it. It may run fine with windows 7 but issues might come up sooner or later like the one you're experiencing.

[EXPERIMENTAL]
Download both of these (as I don't know which one of thsese two your laptop needs). Keep mind that doing the following could render your system inoperable and use at own risk. When downloaded, extract ZIP , open desired folder and find SETUP or INSTALL program. Right click and choose properties, then navigate to compatibility mode, then select windows Vista from the menu. Then apply changes, ok and close window and attempt to start.

Computer loads windows xp then goes black and does nothing else


This problem occurs because of display driver or resolution issue.
For that when you power up the computer press F8 key before you see windows logo .
then you can see safe and other menu enter in enable vga mode then go to start ->control panel ->display ->settings.
Change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
If sill not able top see display in normal mode then enter in safe mode and uninstall graphic driver then restart computer then install graphic driver again.
Also Reattach all connection to harddrive because some times harddrive is not recognized properly in bios .
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
