Bluetooth not working. Disabled? Or?


Bluetooth uses a number of drivers working together called the Bluetooth Stack. These need to be loaded in a specific order on boot up. Best way to fix is to remove the drivers and then using the hardware/device control remove the Bluetooth device, then reboot the machine and the O/S re find the device and load the drivers in the correct order. If any driver is missing it will be listed at this stage so have pencil handy.

How to Fix Hardware/device Problems on a pc.


From my experience on fixya.com ive found that there is a very large amount of people that have this common problem.

Well if you have this problem Ive got the perfect tip to solve it.

1. IF YOU HAVE VISTA or W7 go to start > Control panel > Hardware & sound then device manager. Now you have a complete overview of witch hardware or devices don't have the latest driver or any driver at all. What you need to do now is make sure everyone of them are updated. If somehow the update doesn't work on a certain device/hardware search the name of it up on the internet, Something like "(your no driver device/hardware name) driver" sometimes it might take awhile but u will find it, and thats how you fix hardware/Device Problems for both Desktop and Laptop pc's. ;)

2 IF YOU HAVE WINDOWS XP/98/ME any of the older sometimes better OS's go to start > Control panel > System > Hardware > Device manager and then fallow through with all the steps with 1,

Unable to detect cdrom after crash / reinstall Vista O/S


hpweb_1-2_minus.gifCheck the Windows Device ManagerDevice Manager is a Windows program that displays hardware devices installed on your computer that are currently recognized by Windows. If functioning properly, each piece of hardware has a corresponding entry in the Device Manager. If a piece of hardware is not listed, then there is a problem. There can be a variety of reasons, ranging from the easy-to-fix (such as missing or corrupted device drivers) to the more serious (such as broken or malfunctioning hardware).If your drive does not appear in Windows Explorer or there is no response from the operating system when you insert a disc, then you should check for an entry in Device Manager. This indicates whether there is a problem or not, and sets the stage for subsequent troubleshooting actions.To verify that the optical drive is listed in the Device Manager:
  1. Remove any discs that may be present from the disk drive.
  2. Click Start , type device into the search field, and then select Device Manager from the list.
  3. In the Device Manager window, expand the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry. There should be a name listed for each installed drive.If the drive is not listed or the DVD/CD-ROM drives entry does not exist and you have verified that it is listed in the BIOS , continue to the next troubleshooting item. reinstall the default device drivers Device drivers are software processes that allow Windows to use the computers hardware components. If the device driver fails or becomes corrupted, then Windows cannot properly communicate with the drive; in fact, it may not even recognize that the drive is connected at all.
Another common source of disk drive problems is that the correct device driver may have been inadvertently replaced with an incompatible one (for example, a generic driver for optical disk drives mistakenly installed by a third-party DVD burning program). In most cases, device driver problems like these can be resolved by reinstalling the default drivers and then installing any driver updates provided by HP. To reinstall the default device drivers:
  1. Click Start , right-click Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. In the System pane, click Device Manager link. If prompted, allow the computer to access the Device Manager.
  3. In Device Manager, click the plus sign c02993920.jpg (in Vista) or the arrow c02993921.jpg (in Windows 7) next to the type of driver you want to uninstall and reinstall (for example., Modems, DVD/CD-ROMs, and so on), unless a minus sign (-) is already showing.
  4. Right-click each listed driver one at a time and click Uninstall . When prompted, confirm that you want to uninstall the selected drivers. Do not restart the PC In the Device Manager pane, select any listed device and click the Scan for hardware changes button (near the top). Windows scans your system for hardware and installs default drivers for anything that requires drivers.
    1. Open Device Manager and verify that your device drivers are listed once again.
    2. After the device drivers have been reinstalled and appear in Device Manager, try running your program again.
      NOTE:Some devices may require your computer to restart. Windows will notify you when restarting is necessary. Save all open files and allow the computer to restart.
    If reinstalling the default drivers does not correct the problem, continue to the next troubleshooting item.

My DVD rom drive is not working I cannot "see" it on the system I have this error message "windowns cannot load the device driver for this hardware. the driver can be corrupted or m missing error code 29...


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.

Hi,

Code 28
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)

Recommended resolution
Install the driver

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.

In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to install the driver.


Code 39
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Cause

There are several causes of Code 39 errors:
  • A required device driver is missing.
  • A required binary file is corrupted.
  • There is a problem with the file I/O process.
  • A driver that is referencing an entry point in another binary file is unable to load.
Recommended resolution

Reinstall the drivers for this device.

Uninstall and reinstall the driver

Uninstall the driver from Device Manager, and then scan for new hardware to install the driver again.

You may be prompted to provide the path of the driver. Windows may have the driver built-in, or may still have the driver files installed from the last time that you set up the device. However, sometimes, it will open the New Hardware Wizard which may ask for the driver. If you are asked for the driver and you do not have it, you can try to download the latest driver from the hardware vendor’s Web site.
  1. On the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Uninstall. Follow the instructions.
  2. Restart your computer.
  3. Open Device Manager, click Action, and then click Scan for hardware changes. Follow the instructions.
Thanks

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.

Laptop wont recognise dvd drive


Here is the explanation and solution for the error code 41:

Code 41
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.

Good luck.

Sound & USB


Usb ports can be difficult at times, as they get stuck in a cycle from last peripheral connected. The best thing to do is go to right click on My computer>properties>hardware tab>device manager and in the harware list will be your usb controllers. right click on them individually and select uninstal, then restart your notebook and they will re install themselves, that should clear that. Next the sound, if you are unable to change anything, then the driver is more than likely corrupt. Again follow above proceedure and look down list for sound, video & game controllers, click tht'+' to Realtek drivers if thats your sound chip and right click and uninstall. Restart your notebook again and again the sound driver should re install itself. If you still have a driver problem go to acer site as the drivers may need updating. http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/tm_2350.html
