A user can uninstall the Windows Vista update that is causing this issue. Once the update is uninstalled you will need to wait until Microsoft has released a fix for this issue. Otherwise, a Windows Vista update may cause this problem to occur again if Microsoft has not pushed a fix yet.
To uninstall the conflicting update, do the following:
1. Click Start
2. Click Control Panel
3. Click Programs and Features
4. Choose View installed updates
5. Select "Update for Microsoft Windows (KB943302)
6. Click Uninstall
7. Restart your computer and the update should be uninstalled

Gateway nv52 headphone jack no audio

that's quite anunusual issue, if you didn't install the audio driver, now's a good time, my Acer Aspire 5630 was on vista 32 bit, it's now on win 7 64 bit and I've had no trouble like this, so it's either the driver issue or a defect in the headphoone amplifier that may have occured for no reason due to age, or wear and tear on the jack port, check the drivers first and make sure that they're not the issue and then work some more on the hardware itself, hope this helps, if not, I'm looking into this issue with a client's laptop, so if you need any help, just ask :)

The topcase wireless mouse says it is for MacBook but will it work for a Sony Vaio laptop too?

Due to the differences in device drivers and Mac from Windows USB ports, you could experience some issues but if you plug it directly into the USB port, it may work. I say this with a level of retention because not all Mice are compatible due to standard USB technology. You will not receive support from Apple if there are any issues because that is not its intended use. You can certainly test it out but you may experience slight issues such as connectivity sustainability and speed lags.

Try to search for updated drivers (device manager of Windows) directly from manager or in google. If the problem is due to drivers Device manager will show a red triangle with exclamation mark.

Have just installed windows vista on toshiba laptop now everytime we turn it on we get "Driver is blocked due to compatibility issues" will this continue or can we fix it.

It really depends on which driver it is talking about. I would goto the Toshiab website and download all vista drivers for your laptop, install them all and see if that resolves the issue.

Error 10 Am trying to install on refurb desktop Have installed and uninstalled and installed again

Error code 10 in device manager means that the device cannot start. This is due to either the drivers are not updated, or the drivers are not recognized by the Device Manager.

Try the following:
- Uninstall and then reinstall the drivers.
- Make sure you have the updated drivers and the drivers are compatible with the operating system of the computer.
- Try to install the adapter to another computer, just to isolate the issue if this is a problem with the drivers or if it is a compatibility issue with the PC.

Please note: WUSB54GSC v1 drivers can also work with Win 7 using the Win Vista drivers.

This driver is blocked due to compatibility isssues

What Windows version are you running? it will really help us a lot if you could provide more details;

Anyway more often this happens when your PC is running on XP(Pro/Home)

If it is you can try the following,;

If your computer is running on Windows XP, normally driver signing is enabled and it will prompt you that an unsigned driver is being installed it will ask you whether you want to install it or not but there are some cases that on the driver signing option that its set to Block unsigned drivers.

To find out which is the current sttings you can go to Control Panel then Look for System
Under the System Properties got the Hardware tab and look for Sriver Signing, on the Driver Signing Options make sure its either set to Ignore or Warn(choose warn so that you are properly noticed if the driver is signed or approved by Windows or Not.

Note: some unsigned drivers may cause your computer to go on bluescreen if its really not compatible or better check 1st on the device's manual if it really is compatible with your system.
