    Dell laptop windows xp home edition

    Control panel/systems/hardware/device manager returns a blank screen.

    Initial research started with slow processing. AOL not working(two hours on telephone with tech support). IE works, but slow. Word works, but slow.
    Uninstalled AOL and downloaded latest version twice, does not work.

    Researched on Microsoft and Onecare Live. There solutions did not work.

My cd/dvd burner on laptop wont recognise blank dvd


You said that you are using Windows XP. So, you have an older computer. Have you looked in the Device Manager and verified that it can read DVDs. Older system so you might have a CD only drive in there.

Latitude C840 wont reconize optical drive and hard drive in BIOS, had loaded xp on hd did update to sp3 came back to see the progress the laptop had rebooted then the problem came up, tried two other hds...


For the hard drive you might have to go to computer and right click, then go to manage, then disk manage, then rescan disk if not just refresh it. The optical drive would have to be to go through the device manager in the system settings in the control panel and update the drivers.

Empty window in device manager


Hi,
First troubleshooting step to check for the device manager in safe mode if still it is blank?
This behavior occurs if the Plug and Play service is turned off (disabled).
To resolve this behavior, set the startup type for Plug and Play to Automatic. To do so, follow these steps:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.
  2. Double-click Plug and Play.

    If you receive a Configuration Manager message, click OK.
  3. In the Startup Type list, click Automatic, and then click OK.
  4. Close Services.
  5. Restart the computer
Hope I was able to help you.

Regards,

try turning off the printer then reboot the PC, then turn on the printer if this doesn't work try the software may not be installed properly. Try the following:
1 Right-click the My computer icon.
For Windows XP, click Start to access the My computer icon.
2 Click Properties.
3 For Windows 98 or Windows Me, click the Device Manager tab.
For Windows 2000 or Windows XP, select the Hardware tab, and then click
the Device Manager button.

Sound


if you are running XP: start > run > type:mmc > ok > a blank console root should appear > file add/remove snap-in... > add > device manager >add > local comp > finish > close > ok > now the console root should have the device manager in it. open the device manager by double clicking it. scroll down until you find "sound, video and game controllers' then if there is no realtek.... click on the icon on the task bar that looks like a computer with a magnifying glass. it will rescan your computer for any driver, chipset changes and Plug and Play. etc a blank audio device should appera or the realtek device should appear. it will either reload itself and you will need to reboot or right click it and select properties ant then select the "driver" tab in the new window that will come up. try "roll back driver" and if this does not work select update driver and follow the wizard, you said you did not have the disk but the driver is still stored locally so don't panic.
