On what basis system drivers are compatible ?


Device drivers are needed to communicate with a hardware device within a computer. A computer program, such as the operating system, sends an instruction to an device driver, which then tells the hardware device what to do. Operating systems typically contain drivers for all types of hardware devices, but they are mostly generic. Finding the drivers that are needed by a computer can be done by finding the type of hardware being used and updating or installing software.

Go into the computer's BIOS to view installed hardware. When starting the computer, press the F2 key or Delete to enter the BIOS. The BIOS will display the type of hard drive as well as the type of CD/DVD drive that is installed in the system. Look in the Device Manager within Windows to see the hardware devices that are installed. Double-click on the "System" icon within the Control Panel and then go to the "Hardware" tab. Click on the "Device Manager" button to see a list of devices that are installed and used by the operating system. Check Windows Update for available updates to on-board hardware devices. Hardware components, such as a video controller and audio controller, can have an updated driver that can be downloaded and installed from Windows Update. Use the installation CD that came with the hardware device. The setup program will install the software and drivers that are needed to use the device. Refer to the manual that came with the computer or hardware component. The manual will list the model number of the device as well as the website of the manufacturer. Visit the manufacturer's website for a hardware device that is installed on the system. Updated drivers to devices are available from a manufacturer to correct problems and to add additional functionality to a device. The site can also be used to find drivers for hardware if the manufacturer is no longer in business.

How do i uninstall a driver that causes stability problems


If you can boot normally, right-click MyComputer and choose Properties, or go to Start->ControlPanel->System.
Choose the Hardware tab, and click Device Manager.
There you will see all the device drivers installed in the system. If yours is not listed, you can choose Show Hidden Devices from the View menu.
Once you found the driver you want to remove, right-click it and choose Uninstall.

If you can't boot normally, you will have to boot to Safe Mode. This is done by pressing F8 key before Windows starts to load; you can press it several times when the initial tests & information screens are displayed. A menu will be shown, from which you need to choose Safe Mode. Once the system finishes loading you need to do the same sequence as described before.

Good luck and please come back with a rating/testimonial if helped.

Check in device manager. To do this. 1st right click my computer, 2nd Click properties, 3rd click hardware, 4th click Device manager, 5th check that the computer is seeing the DVD/CD-ROM drives by double clicking the DVD/CD-ROM drives words or click the + symbol next to DVD/CD-ROM drives, the drop down menu will list your device if it’s there. If a device is listed double click the device. If it says it’s working properly click driver in the top bar and uninstall, then re-boot, the system will re-load the driver on re-booting. If the driver was corrupt it will re-install it correctly.
If the system cannot find the driver on re-booting it's missing from the systems file, go to the Support Fujitsu site and download and install the driver. Its free all you have to do is put the laptop details in the appropriate boxes and all the drivers for that laptop will be listed.
From your description of the error message it’s no doubt a corrupt or missing driver.
Hope this helps.

Check the dvice manager to see if all the drivers are there. Any device needing drivers will have a yellow question mark on it. If you need drivers follow the link bellow. I know it says Compaq, but when you type in Pavilion it will redirect you to the proper page. HP & Compaq merged.

Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

I have just installed a new computer with Windows Vista. I am getting an advisory that there are compatability problems with Vista and the Canon iP1700 printer. C an you advise?


There are several things you can try if you have a device that is not working correctly:.
Please check this link. You will find the driver for vista
DRIVER
• Check if updated drivers are available through Windows Update. When you check Windows Update, click View available updates to determine if an updated driver is available for your device. For more information, see Install Windows updates.
• Make sure that the hardware device is compatible with your computer and with your version of Windows. If the device is not compatible, you will need to find the correct driver. Check the information that came with your device. You can also search for the device on the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List (HCL) website. This website contains a comprehensive list of computers and devices that have been tested to work with Windows Vista.
• Many devices require special drivers to work properly. Be sure that you have installed any software discs that came with the device.
• Restart the computer. Restarting might be necessary if the driver requires it or if the driver did not install correctly.
• If the device is a universal serial bus (USB) device, disconnect it and then plug it in to a different USB port. Windows should detect the device and install the drivers, and will notify you if the device drivers did not install properly.
If this does not work please come back to me
