The boot drive is not the same as the hard drive.

your harddrive is still C.
It is just that booting the computer will require the use of the named drive.
But that should not affect the installing of drivers.
You machine may not be able to find your C drive,

Or you selected the I drive as the dresses to load the drivers. In that case you will have to either transfer the to your C drive, or select install when you are downloading them. instead of save.

Have a used dell dimension 2400, hard drive died i replaced it, but i dont have the original os disc that came with the system, can i use my copy of vista, or find another copy


If your Dell computer had Vista installed then you can use your copy of Vista CD and you can use the product installation code that is printed on the Windows label that is attached to your Dell.
When you insert the Windows CD into your Dell and boot up your computer then select the CD as the boot device (ie 4=IDE CD).

After Windows is installed and activated then you need to install the Dell computer's device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system.

Black screen v6000 laptop "HELP Please"


It appears the hard disk has been wiped/formatted and does not have an operating system installed.
You need to get a Windows Vista installation CD and if the Windows label on the bottom of the laptop is still attached then this label has the product installation code.
Boot up with the Windows Vista installation CD to install the Vista operating software then you need to install the Presario device drivers.

You can download the device drivers from the Compaq/HP WEB support/download page. Make sure you select your model laptop and the Windows drivers you require and install them. Click on this link to download the drivers: -

Z5700 black display after windowa start


This can be caused by the video driver being messed up in the settings ..I suggest to try to boot into the safe mode..and in this mode ..go to control panel ..and uninstall the video driver from the remove programs list ..after that ..try to boot normal ..and if it works ..reinstall the driver ..or reinstall it in safe mode..
to boot in safe mode press the key indicated on screen for boot manager ..or just unplug it to stop suddenly ..and after that when you start it should have several choices for boot and one of it is safe mode (simple ..not with devices or so ..)
If it do not want to boot in safe mode either it means the windows is damaged and need to be reinstalled ..
the good news is that you have image of the devices on start and it only does this after booting to windows..and this means there is nothing wrong with it physically ..
In short ..you need the video card driver to be reinstalled after you remove the one it is installed right now ..The driver is either set wrong and the choice is not supported by the system or it is corrupted ..

Want to reset to factory... i have an hp pavilion 7920


Most manufacturer's reserve a small partition on the stock hard drive for returning the PC to factory state. When booting the PC, an option should show "repair your computer" or something along those lines. Try pushing either F12 or F8 when booting to bring up this menu.

If you do not have a RECOVERY CD then contact Dell topurchase this Recovery CD for your model Dell laptop. Boot up using the RecoveryCD and follow the instructions.
The other way is to re- install Windows using a Windows installation CD; itmust match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottomof your laptop. Boot up using the Windows installation CD and follow theinstructions. Next install all of the Dell's computer/laptop devicedrives. Next install the Windows service packs (SP2 & SP3 forXP, SP1 & SP2 for Vista) Next Activate Windows via the Internet or by phone. Next install your programs - Microsoft Office etc. Next click on Start - Programs - Windows Update (for thelatest updates).
The device drivers for your model computer/laptop can be downloaded from theDell WEB support site. To download the drivers from Dell WEB site, select yourmodel desktop or laptop, or a better option, type in the Service Tag number,this is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back orsides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go the BIOSsetting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will bedisplayed).

I reinstalled xp on a Compaq Presario R3200 laptop and I can't figure out where to turn on the wireless radio. The wireless button does not have a light on and does nothing.


You must reinstall the wireless adapter's driver from the HP website. You can do this by one of two ways:
1. Connect the Ethernet cable (assuming your network adapter is functional and the driver is installed) to the Internet via the modem. Then log into the HP website - drivers and download section for your model. Download the driver to your computer and install it.
2. On another computer that can connect to the Internet, insert a USB flash drive into a USB port. Log in to the HP website as above and download the driver file into the flash drive. Transfer the file just downloaded to the laptop and install it.
Whenever the operating system (in some cases) is reinstalled, some drivers need to be installed separately from the operating system.

Can't reboot dell 4100 dimension desktop


First put the hdd installation cd into the cd drive and try to boot. This should install the hdd driver as well as start formatting the new hdd. After the drive is formatted take out the hdd cd & insert the Windows installation cd into the drive. Boot. Windows should start installing on your new drive. After Windows is installed check the Dell support site for updated drivers for your system. Install drivers as needed. Any other software you had on your old drive will need to be reinstalled to the new drive. Hope this helps & please rate my answer. Thanks.

Toughbook CF-51 Sound


You can download the XP drivers from the panasonic site. CF-51 got many flavors and be sure that your model numbers are at hand when you retrieve the factory installed drivers.

Delete all SigmaTel drivers from the registry hardware section. This would help reinstall the correct driver. The presence of these wrong registry values prevent successful installation of the factory drivers.

I have installed se7en, vista and XP successfully. The sound is really problematic since Dell and Gateway laptops use similar sound chips and offers drivers on the net... but they don't work at all. The Gateway driver seems to install perfectly from device manager report, but only the mic works & no sound.

What I do is install the factory provided drivers in XP compatible mode and then use windows update to download the latest SigmaTel drivers (se7en pre-beta). Windows got a more compatible driver but it can only install over the original since the chips cannot be recognized.
