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

LlHow would Igo about removing windows vista and installing windows 7 on my toshiba satellite L305D-S5881?


It's pretty easy. The first step is to buy a Windows 7 upgrade installation disk with a valid product key. Then, it's as simple as putting the disk into your computer and following the onscreen instructions. There will be a point in the instructions asking if you want to do an upgrade (keeps all your existing data) or wipe everything and do a clean installation.

If your computer doesn't have a DVD drive, Microsoft allows you to download the upgrade assistant, as long as you purchase a product key online.

Good luck!

I NEED 2 UPGRADE MY SYLVANIA NETBOOK THAT HAS WINDOWS CE & I WANT 2 UPGRADE MY EXPLORER 2 EXPLORER 9 HOW WOULD I GO ABOUT IT


Internet Explorer 9 requires Windows Vista or higher as your base Operating System, it will not work on Windows CE. I would recommend that you purchase a copy of Windows 7, also compatible with IE9, from Amazon.com or similar retailer.

Here is a copy of Windows 7 you can buy (DVD) that will allow you to install IE9:

Keep in mind that you must have a DVD drive in order to install Windows 7. Yes there are other ways, but that is a bit more invovled. If your netbook does not have a DVD drive, you will also have to purchase one of those.

You can get an external DVD drive that hooks up to a USB port on your Netbook from Newegg.com here:

Also make sure your Netbook has at least 1GB RAM, otherwise your Windows 7 experience might not be very good.

I need solution for this problem immediately I installed windows 7 in my PC. after that in My PC DVD RW is not working.


Was the Windows 7 installed from a clean slate or you upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If you have upgraded from Vista to Windows 7, then this is definitely a driver problem. You can try to update the driver by going to Device Manager, check if the DVD drive is listed. Pull down the drop down list, and right click on the devices listed under DVD/CD-ROM Drives and choose Update Driver Software.
If the DVD drive came with a software bundle (e.g. Nero Burning Application) Try reinstalling these application under Windows 7 Environment.

ASUS M51SN Matshita BD UJ-120 burner does not work - Windows 7


You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.
