    I need to know which Windows version you have and also which updates are giving you errors. Are there any error messages or is it just not installing? Thanks, NOLA Tech

Open the Download folder and delete its contents
Close the window.

Cannot detected controller to install firmware


The error you describe is a bios error. No drivers in the os will help.
Maybe you can find a bios update that will support that controller, or maybe not. You may need a different raid controller that is properly supported by your bios.

My hp pavilion desktop computer says monitor going to sleep when i turn it on


Sorry to say, but your computer needs a complete installation of an OS. Windows updating causes several changes to important system files and nothing should be done at the time of INSTALLING THE UPDATES.
Norton was working at that moment, as you say, and besides, it was optimizing the computer which means that both the Update and the optimization may have worked on the same system files and the files may be corrupted now.

So, you should have a installation of OS as the System Repair didn't work.

You need togo to www.support.dell.comand select "I'm looking for drivers and downloads". If you don't havethe proper version of Adobe you will be prompted to install it. Once installedreturn to "drivers and downloads" and enter the "servicetag",(serial number) of the computer. Dell keeps a listing of driversfor every customer's computer they sell.

The new update date xbox sent wont work and itcomes up code error e55 i have tried to speak to microsoft and nothing back how do i fix this code error as my son cant play his xbox


This error occurs due to a bad NAND flash. If the update didn't install properly I could easily see it causing this error. As long as the xbox isn't modded in any way, a call to Microsoft should sort this issue out since it was THEIR update that caused the problem. You can call support at 18004myxbox.

Thank you for choosing FixYa!

I have run into this a few times and there is something you can try. Make sure you are connected to the internet, go to control panel and then to device manager. Scroll down to the cd/dvd device, select the installed drive and right click, then uninstall the device, hit ok and reboot. When windows reboots, it will recognize the device and install it, it may ask to search windows update for an updated driver, allow it to.

Scanned 18 outdated drivers. I have never been happy with this system, bought the extended warrant also. Still covered. I don't think I should have to pay for new drivers. Not when system is still so new.


usually this is a driver update service ythat "finds outdated drivers" and asks you to pay to fix it.  you are paying for the service not the drivers. <br><br> If you have windows service pack two or better installed just click windows key pause buttons at the same time then go to hardware then device manager.  <br><br>im there just right click the device and hit update driver.  This will update most devices to the newest drivers.<br><br> Although the only time yo really need to update drivers is when stuff isnt fucntioning properly.  Ive found updating sometimes causes undo problems.
