Hi,

Simply visit the manufactures website and they should provide a software section where you can download any drivers and software needed.

Sometimes the driver downloads and software can be found under the support section of the website.

You should be able to find a manufactures website simply by typing the manufactures name in google.

Hope this helps

Floppy Diskette Seek Failure Drive 3 Not Found: Parallel ATA, PATA-1


If your computer has the old floppy disk drive on it, then Remove the Power Cord, Remove the Case and then remove the cable from the back of the floppy disk drive. Evidently the drive is bad.

If there is no floppy disk drive on your computer, turn the computer off, restart it and watch the screen for which key it says to hit to get into the System Bios or System Setup and hit that key. You have to hit the key when you see the message or it will not work and you will have to reboot it. Once you get into the bios check your devices and drives for the Floppy drive and set it to None or Not available ( It is probably set on auto or enabled). Also check your Boot Sequence or Boot Order in the bios and remove the Floppy Disk from being in the boot sequence or set it to be after the Hard Drive and CD Drive.

Problem with my PC's working


There's any number of reasons why you would experience such problems and also various solutions that might work.
- One of the keys on your PS2 connected keyboard might be stuck and your PC's BIOS assumes you're trying to boot from your floppy drive at the boot up sequence. Check your motherboard's manual for what key that might be and visually inspect it if it's stuck or there's signs of any el. conducting liquids under it or around its base. If such is the case, try rocking the stuck key gently until it gives and returns to its proper position or help it up with a toothpick. You can also use a dull tipped tootpick or soft cotton earbud to clean underneath it, if needed.
- Your PC's BIOS is set so that floppy drive is your first boot device and you forgot to remove non-system floppy disk in it. Remove the disk from the drive and see if your error disappears.
- Your floppy disk drive (FDD) might be corrupt and causing other el. problems on your motherboard, possibly including confusion in the sleep states of your PC. Try disconnecting the power cord off your FDD and see if that helps.
- If you don't really need your floppy disk drive, go to your motherboards BIOS (see manual for how to do that or follow on-screen instructions at boot-up sequence) and either disable your FDD completely, or change the boot-up order so it's not listed before your optical drive and your hard drive. Save changes and reboot.
- Your floppy disk drive might be dead and your motherboard's controller has problems reading from it (regardless if there's disk in it or not). Disconnect power cord and the signal cable from your floppy drive and reboot your PC.
Of course, it could be something else and you'll have to clarify exactly what error codes you get. Still, maybe one of the suggestions above do the trick ;)

Need to install sata driver on hp dc7100 windows xp sp3


Hi,
Drive a:\ refers to a floppy drive, if you have not got a floppy drive in the laptop then i suggest that you borrow or purchase a USB one, they are not expensive !!!
When you have got a USB floppy drive all you have to do is format a floppy disk in the FAT file system and copy the drivers to the floppy disk.
Plug the floppy disk in the machine that you want to install XP on, start the install as you normally would and look at the bottom of the screen for where it says "press F6 to install third party drivers" and hit F6 as soon as you see that prompt, let it get to the stage where it displays your drive and it should pick up the SATA drive you have in the machine and install windows.
Post back if you need any more help or advice.



Good luck.

Trubleshoot Motherboard


More than 70% of all computer problems are related to cabling and connections. Ensure all cables are connected and connected firmly. IDE and floppy ribbon cables and power cables can often go loose. Ensure microprocessor, memory modules, and adapters such as video card are inserted correctly and didn't "pop-up" due to vibration.
System has no power at all. Power light does not illuminate, fan inside the power supply does not turn on, and indicator light on keyboard does not turn on. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Power cable is unplugged. Visually inspect power cable. Make sure power cable is securely plugged in.
Defective power cable. Visual inspection, try another cable. Replace cable.
Power supply failure. Power cable and wall socket are OK, but system is still dead. Contact technical support
Faulty wall outlet;circuit breaker or fuse blown. Plug device into socket know to work and test. Use different socket, repair outlet, reset circuit breaker or replace fuse.



System inoperative. Keyboard lights are on, power indicator lights are lit, and hard drive is spinning. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Expansion card is partially dislodged from expansion slot on the motherboard. Turn off computer. Take cover off system unit.
Check all expansion cards to ensure they are securely seated in slots. Using even pressure on both ends of the expansion card, press down firmly on expansion card.
Defective floppy disk drive or tape drive. Turn system off.
Disconnect the cables from one of the floppy drives. Turn on the system, check to see if the keyboard operates normally. Repeat until you have located defective unit. Contact Technical Support.
Defective expansion card. Turn computer off.
Remove an expansion card. Make sure expansion card is secure in expansion socket.



System does not boot from hard disk drive, can be booted from floppy disk drive. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Connector between hard drive and system board unplugged. When attempting to run the FDISK utility described in the HARD DISK section of the manual you get a message, INVALID DRIVE SPECIFICATION. Check cable running form disk to disk controller on the board. Make sure both ends are securely plugged in; check the drive type in the Standard CMOS Setup (in your motherboard manual).
Damaged Hard Disk or Disk Controller. Format hard disk; if unable to do so, the hard disk may be defective. Contact Technical Support.
Hard Disk directory or FAT is scrambled. Run the FDISK program, format the hard drive(See HARD DRIVE section of manual). Copy your backup data back onto hard drive. Backing up the hard drive is extremely important. All Hard Disks are capable of breaking down at any time.



System only boots from Floppy Disk. Hard Disk can be read and applications can be used, but booting from Hard Disk is impossible. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
Hard Disk boot program has been destroyed. A number of causes could be behind this. Back up data and applications files.
Reformat the Hard Drive as described in the Hard Drive section of the manual. Re-install applications and data using backup disks.



Error message reading "SECTOR NOT FOUND" or other error messages indication certain data is not allowed to be retrieved. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
A number of causes could be behind this. Use a file by file backup instead of an image backup to backup the Hard Disk. Back up any salvageable data. Then do a low level format, partition, and high level format of the hard drive( see Hard Disk section of your manual for instructions). Re-install all saved data when completed.



Disk formatted on IBM PS/2 will not operate with this system. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
The IBM PS/2 uses a different format than other computers. IBM PS/2 disk format will not work in an AT type computer. Format disk in the AT type computer insert disk into the IBM PS/2 and copy the files you wish.



After install an expansion card (network card, tape drive card, etc.) the system no longer works properly. PROBABLE CAUSE DIAGNOSIS SOLUTION
No power to monitor. All or part of the system may be inoperable. The new card may work but a mouse or COM port may not work. Change the interrupt or RAM address on the new expansion card. See the documentation that came with the new card in order to change pin settings. many expansion devices come with proprietary software that will assist you in doing this.

Incorrect information entered into the configuration (setup) program. Check the configuration program. Replace any incorrect information. Review system's equipment. Make sure correct information is in setup.
