Hi,
is this an external USB CD Drive ?
Windows error code 10 indicates a hardware error or failed driver installation. This error may appear if a device has insufficient power to operate correctly (if it,s plugged into a bus powered hub with other devices), or may indicate a more serious hardware problem. Also, it may be indicative of USB root hub drivers being incorrectly installed.
This could be a faulty or dirty USB Lead problem.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Code 28 can not be install on my pc


error code 28, means a Driver Error,

the solution is to go to the device manager,

1.) start, control panel, system, hardware, device manager,
2.) locate a device with a yellow highlight
3.) right click it and select update , follow the onscreen instructions

or
reinstall the driver using the driver cd. that came with it.

if that fails you need to go to the manufactures website for that particular device , locate the driver and download it, then install it. PS if its on the mainboard you can go to the OEM system builder you have like dell or hp , if you dont have and oem system go to the mainboad manufactures web site, Biostar and MSI.

Hello, my wireless is not showing on my computer and when i go on device manager on my computer it has a question mark on ethernet controller and say erro code 28, how can i fix this?


Do your Wireless Device (PCI or USB unit) comes with an installation CD? If so, use the CD to install the software/drivers.(Instead of using the Windows wizard). Remove any previous installation before reinstalling with the CD.

Resit your device to a different USB port or PCI slot. If the drivers/software are properly installed, windows will detect and installed the device correctly.

Cause of the Code 28 Error (In general)
A Code 28 error is caused by a missing driver for that particular piece of hardware. There are several of reasons that a driver might not be installed for a device but your troubleshooting of the problem will be the same no matter the root cause.

Resolution
1.Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

There is always the slim chance that the Code 28 error you're seeing in Device Manager was caused by a fluke with Device Manager or in your BIOS. If that's the case, a reboot might fix the Code 28.

2.Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before you noticed the Code 28? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 28 error.

Undo the change, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 28 error.

Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:
•Remove or reconfigure the newly installed device.
•Roll back the driver to the version prior to your update.
•Use System Restore to undo recent Device Manager changes.

3.Update the drivers for the device. Installing the latest manufacturer supplied drivers for a device with the Code 28 error is the most likely solution to the problem.

Important: Make sure you install the drivers for the correct operating system. Example, if you're using Windows 7 32-bit, install the drivers designed for that specific version of Windows. Most Code 28 errors are caused by updating or install the wrong drivers for a device.

4.Update your OS to latest Windows service pack. Microsoft regularly releases service packs and other patches for their operating systems, one of which may contain a fix for the cause of the Code 28 error.

**Note: Certain service packs for Windows Vista and Windows 2000 have contained specific fixes for some instances of the Code 28 error in Device Manager.

5.Replace the hardware. As a last resort, you may need to replace the hardware that has the Code 28 error.

It's also possible that the device is not compatible with this version of Windows. You can check the Windows HCL to be sure.

Note: If you still think there is still a software/operating system component to this Code 28 error, you could try a repair install of Windows. If that doesn't work, try a clean install of Windows. Not recommend doing either of those more drastic options before you try replacing the hardware, but you may have to if you're out of other options.

Hope it helps.

I am running windows 7 (upgraded from Vista which came on the machine at purchase). My dvd drive stopped working suddenly and it won't allow me to reinstall the driver. (hl-dt-st dvdram gsa-t20n ata device...


The Code 10 error code is generated when Device Manager has insufficient information or the error that is bubbled up by the device drivers is not recognized by Device Manager. Additionally, this error may occur when one of the drivers that the device needs does not start.
The Code 10 error pertains mainly to hardware and device driver issues or to compatibility issues.
Did you try Windows Update? You need to configure it so it looks for drivers as well.(is not by default).
It's strange since most drivers for Vista will work for Windows 7.
Another thing you can do is update and uninstall the driver, and restarting... that should take of it. I hope this helps. Please let us know if you solved the problem and do not forget to rate and provide positive feedback for our fast-free support today. Thank you :D

It should tell you the exact name of the missing driver and you can replace it. Or, reinstall windows over top of itself as a repair. It should replace the missing driver.
