Is it a valid copy if xp. if it is you can use microsofts driver update site. If it is a copy you can go to Start>control Panel>System>Hardware>Device manager. This will give you a list of your hardware. If this list is incomplete you may have to resort to opening up the machine and identifying the components. Who built the machine, could their website be of any use???

My computer crashed and I want to reinstall Driver Detective with out buying it again. I have my Registration key.


To tell the truth those find and update driver programs like that are just a wast of disk space. You should just use the driver update utility in the Device Manager of your Operating System. It does the same thing for free. If you do not how to do this here's how.
  1. Right click the My Computer or Computer icon on the desk top. If not on desk top you can find it in the start menu.
  2. Choose the Properties option in the drop down menu.
  3. In the next window click on the Device Manager. In XP it's at top will be in tab form. Vista it's on the left side of in menu form Windows 7 is the same I think. Haven't played with Windows 7 much yet.
  4. The next window will show you a list of devices installed on you PC that looks like this cdb6214.jpg
  5. Find what you want to update display, usb, monitor and so on and click the + next to it. This open a drop down that show all hardware installed for that device.
  6. Right click the hardware you want to update and choose update driver and search internet when it gives you the option.
It will search for the newest driver update and tell you if you already have it. If you don't have it, it will download it so you can install it.

If you know how to do this already my apologies. You never know how much people know about computers on these type of web sites. =)

Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck

Installation of a downloaded driver for Lexmark X1290 All-In_One


Hi,

You need to download the Vista compatible setup here from Lexmark,

http://downloads.lexmark.com/cgi-perl/downloads.cgi?ccs=229:1:0:567:0:0&searchLang=en&os_group=Windows%20Vista&target=

Run the setup after it finishes downloading but ONLY connect the printer to the computer when the setup instructs you to do so.

The flash drive purchased doesnot work when pjugged into the usb port on my desk top but it work on my lap top? How do I get it to work on my desk top


Hello claponte

FIRST, THE HARDWARE SIDE:
If you just purchased your flash drive, then it is using the USB 2.0 (high speed) standard. Prior to that were USB version 1.1 and, before that, USB 1.0 standards.

USB 2.0 devices will still work when plugged into USB 1.1 ports - just at a reduced speed)

However, computers w/ USB 1.0 ports cannot properly detect USB 2.0 devices. On those computers, you'd need to install a USB 2.0 expansion card in order to add USB 2.0 functionality to the computer.

SECOND, THE SOFTWARE (DRIVERS) SIDE:
On the software side, USB devices are "plug-and-play" on Windows XP & Vista systems. This means they do not require special drivers or installation for them to work properly. The drivers needed for them to operate are already built into the operating system.

However on operating systems prior to Windows XP (Windows ME, Windows 98SE, Windows 98...) drivers are needed for USB devices to be detected properly.

These are two possible reasons why your flash drives don't work on your desktop computer.
(01) The computer is an older one using USB 1.0 technology
(02) The operating system is pre-Windows XP

Another possibility is (if your computer USB ports are at least 1.1 standard and your operating system is at least Windows XP) there is an issue w/ the USB ports on your desktop computer. This could be a hardware or a software issue still.

Please, let us know if that's the case and we'll help you to trouble-shoot the issue.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for you or, of course, if you have any further questions.

Thank you
BJ

Vista laptop and canon pixima mp610 printer


Go to the site listed below and download the drivers for vista, on that page you will have to use the pulldown menu and choose your operating system and it will show you a program that is updated for vista. Use that program to install the printer on your laptop.
Hope this helps
