My Hewlett Packard Vectra VL PC has two usb ports but doesn't seem to have a driver.


Hello Vivian Elliott,

Without USB drivers the USB port will not get detected so install the suitable drivers of your motherboard. As you've said that yours PC is HP Vectra VL PC but u didnt mentioned the actual motherboard manufacturer and the operating system your using.

So once open the below link and select your operating system and download the suitable drivers.

I have HP vectra corporate pc and I have installed IE7. After installation I cannot get desktop screen (means start menu). IE7 creates Internet explorer error and for that reason I am unable to use my pc....


F8 is the key that you should push to enter safe mode, but you have to know the administrator password.
I can give you another hint.
When you enter Windows normaly, wait for IE error and after that try CTRL+Shift+Esc key combination. Task manager will pop-up. Choose File->New Task(Run) and type control or control appwiz.cpl. This should open Control Panel or Add/Remove programs and that way you can uninstall IE7.
Other option is to choose File->New Task(Run) and type %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe in Task Manager to directly try to uninstall IE7.

Good Luck!

Whant to know video card compatibility (spec) i whant to use my old hp vectra vl 400 as a living room pc on my 50'' plasma screen and i whant to have a s-video out sorry for my english iam french steve


Bonjour mon ami... I am in Nuve Zealand.. You are going to need an older type card, if memory serves it needs to be AGP, These are a little old for things there days, and while they will output to a TV, the quality is NOT going to be very good... But in saying that you still get acceptable results, i would guess you will use XP SP2, as your OS? This will drive any card you choose well. I have included a link below to help you choose an AGP card, that suits your purpose and price range.. Bon Chance

Iv just formated my hp vectra vl now i have no sound


Go to HP's website, find the model you use, and download the sound driver. Or, if you use a third party sound card, go to their site and download their audio driver.

I hope this helps.

Hp vectra vl wont start xp, keeps trying to start over


Could you explain what are you booting from if like you said "no disk drive on this". What was the last thing the member of your family does on that PC? Any new installed programs, or hardware? Does the PC restarts itself after that "full circle" or stays frosen?
