Base from the description of your problem the CD/DVD drive that you have cannot load a driver for it , so the operating system that you're trying to install cannot continue read the Windows 7 or Vista to proceed the installation. So the best way to correct this is to install first a XP if you have or better try using a different CD/DVD drive there.

I have a Dell desktop running Windows Vista. I cannot boot up to Windows. I have a black screen with cursor error message saying: boot device available, ta 0 installed, ta 1 installed, ta 2 none, ta 3...


That message says that the hard disk was found but nothing on it can be used - Vista is completely corrupted. You will have to reinstall it using the recovery cd that came with it when you bought it.

If it is application error then follow these steps: Warning: You should not install a version of BlackBerry Device Software that is earlier than the version installed on the BlackBerry smartphone. Doing so could cause the BlackBerry smartphone to malfunction. Before proceeding, make sure that the latest version of BlackBerry Device Software is installed on the computer by completing the following steps: Open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Click Help. Select About Desktop Manager. Click the Device Software tab. Verify that the BlackBerry Device Software displayed is the latest version currently available from the wireless service provider. Warning: The following procedure will delete either all data, or all data and applications on the BlackBerry smartphone. Back up the BlackBerry smartphone data before proceeding. To perform a clean installation of the BlackBerry Device Software using BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.1 to 4.3, complete the following steps: Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer and open BlackBerry Desktop Manager. Double-click Application Loader. Click Next to start the installation process. Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click OK. Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications you want to load, and then click Next. Click Advanced, and then select the check boxes beside Erase all application data and Erase all currently installed applications . Click Next. Select the check box next to Do not automatically backup the application data during the loading process (if prompted). Clear the check box next to Backup and restore applications installed wirelessly (if prompted). Click Next > Finish. When the process has completed, the message The loading operation was successful will appear. Click Close to return to BlackBerry Desktop Manager Note: BlackBerry Desktop Manager 4.3 will display the Delete all application data and Delete all currently installed applications check boxes in step 6 of the above procedure.

Installing Sprint Smartview on Windows Vista --Dell laptop


Smartview is supposed to work with Vista. Did you right-click on the install file and run as administrator?

If you can not get it to work there is a work around.

First, download and install the BlackBerry Desktop Manager software. After installation, plug in your BlackBerry and start up the software for the first time. Open the Options -> Connection Settings… window and set the connection to USB. Plug in the BlackBerry, enter your password if applicable, and Vista will find the device and install a “standard modem”.
Open the Control Panel
Network and Internet
Connect to a network
Set up a connection or network
Set up a dial-up connection
Select Standard Modem
Dial-up phone number is #777
Connect.

Everything should work, some have reported faster speeds using this method over the Smartview program.
