As far as the message that you have indicated, the term "the software is being installed convinced you to think that it has found the driver.
Kindly don't dwell so much on this message as it does not nessearily mean that the driver has been found instead if the hardware is a printer, then insert the driver cd that came with it same case with other hardwares.
Do not yet conclude that it is not compatible with your current operating system because you haven't yet installed the right software for it.
Solution: Insert the compact disk that came with the hardware of check on the web for compatible drivers.
Let me know if this solved your problem.

The hardware has to be vista compatible and the manufacturer can provide the vista driver for that hardware. If they do not support vista for your hardware, then it is not vista compatible. Microsoft has a lot of drivers for a lot of devices, but there are more devices out there that are not ready for vista. Goto the device manufacturer and see if they have a driver for vista.

Usb device not recognized


New hardware often comes with specific instructions for installation. Some want you to install software first - others want the hardware installed first. Make sure you're supplying the PC with what is needed - in the order it is needed.

If the device requires external power - be sure to provide it.

When prompted to allow connecting to the internet to search for drivers after connecting the hardware - be sure to allow it. If the PC is unable to locate drivers online, the device should have come with software on a disk. Insert the disk into the computer and tell the computer that you have inserted the disk and choose "removable drives". If no software was supplied, check with the manufacturer's website. Download the drivers needed for your operating system. If there are no drivers for your operating system listed, the hardware may not be supported on it. You should contact the manufacturer of the device to see if they have a "work- around" for you.

Good luck!

I just install a quad core processor, and the sound card doesn't make nay sound


Is it just a replacement of a defective one? If it is, then, you still have the same operating system in it. Put your PC on, and left click, Setting, Control Panel, Systems, Hardware, and finally the Device Manager. You will now see the installed devices/hardware in
your PC. Right click over the sound, audio devices,
and view the status and property of this item. You
will be prompted on what to do next. If you don't get
results, your option is to reinstall the software driver.
If you have the CD for sound/audio software driver,
insert the disc and install the driver. If this is not
available, you can connect to the internet Just type at the search engine blank (Free download for sound/audio software driver) and click over it. Then, follow the instruction for you to get the free download.
the sound/audio software driver download

Whenever i insert an external hard drive, it tells no drivers


It is possible when *********** board is of old model.
you should update your computer's hardware system.
try your hard disk in your friend's computer, if it will work ther, that's mean *********** board can't support your hard disk, try hard disk of small sizes.

Whenever I insert a new wireless mouse or any thumb drive into a USB port my Aspire asks for a driver. Previously the drivers for these devices installed automatically.


You probably turned it off by accident. Go to Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware and choose "Windows Update" under "Drivers". Make sure either the first or second choice is selected.

vista has many compatiblity issues when it comes to software and hardware, what you need to do is download the right drivers for the operating system you are using (if any)
the best thing to do is go to the website and see if there are any vista software or drivers.
if not then the device will only work on XP


hope this helps

Speakers port not working properly...


It must be a hardware problem it can't be the driver which is software.If I were u i would have had a look inside the pc at the jack or ask toshiba for a repair/replace if in warranty but i think it's more likely the jack ur intrested in.Try putting a drop of water when inserting the jack(don't be affraid nothing can happen) and rotate it a bit and see if it comes only in the external device.This worked for me I hope it did for u.

Driver or Hardware issue


This could be a problem with the external attachment, but it sounds more like a compatiblilty issue with Vista. Check the compatibility of the devices and their drivers, and get back to me.
