Driver for vista

Hi,
I just got a new computer with windows vista, the problem is that I can't install my printer because it's not compatible with vista. The printer is i250, I don't want to change the printer because the ink is very inexpensive. I just need a driver for a i250 for vista. Where can I download it?

Thanks so much for your help.

Missing boot manager


To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE.

To do this, follow these steps:


Put the Windows Vista or Windows 7 installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.


Press a key when you are prompted.

Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.


Click Repair your computer.


Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.

In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.

Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.


Note To start the computer from the Windows Vista or Windows 7 DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive.


For more information about how to configure the computer to start from the DVD drive, see the documentation that is included with the computer or contact the computer manufacturer.

Bootrec.exe options


The Bootrec.exe tool supports the following options. Use the option that is appropriate for your situation.

Note Use the Bootrec.exe tool to troubleshoot "Bootmgr Is Missing" issue.


If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again.

By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt.

To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:

bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup

c:

cd boot

attrib bcd -s -h -r

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old

bootrec /RebuildBcd

/FixMbr


The /FixMbr option writes a Windows 7 or Windows Vista-compatible MBR to the system partition. This option does not overwrite the existing partition table.


Use this option when you must resolve MBR corruption issues, or when you have to remove non-standard code from the MBR.

/FixBoot


The /FixBoot option writes a new boot sector to the system partition by using a boot sector that is compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Use this option if one of the following conditions is true.


The boot sector has been replaced with a non-standard Windows Vista or Windows 7 boot sector.

The boot sector is damaged.


An earlier Windows operating system has been installed after Windows Vista or Windows 7 was installed. In this scenario, the computer starts by using Windows NT Loader (NTLDR) instead of Windows Boot Manager (Bootmgr.exe).

/ScanOs


The /ScanOs option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Additionally, this option displays the entries that are currently not in the BCD store.


Use this option when there are Windows Vista or Windows 7 installations that the Boot Manager menu does not list.

/RebuildBcd


The /RebuildBcd option scans all disks for installations that are compatible with Windows Vista or Windows 7.

Additionally, this option lets you select the installations that you want to add to the BCD store.


Use this option when you must completely rebuild the BCD.


hope this helps

Hi I have a WD1200BEVS hard drive making a musical two tone buzz. Any chance for repair?


If you can boot up your computer, I would back up your data before your hard drives fail completely. It is unusal to have both hard drives go at the same time.
Mere mortals such as me and you cannot repair hard drives, basically buy new ones to replace the faulty drives.
To reinstall Windows on your new hard drive, you will need the Windows XP or Vista CD install disk plus all the device drivers for all the installed devices in your computer (eg. video, audio, LAN etc.) and install those that Windows could not install.
Make sure when you download these device drivers that you select the ones that is specific to the version of the Windows operating system you installing.

Unable to install driver software


There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee

Sandisk flash drive


Is the account that your tying to access the drive with an Administrator account? If not, Log in as Administrator and try to access the new drive. If you ARE using Administrator privileges on the vista machine, the problem lies in the U3 smart driver. Try downloading and installing the drivers for the XP SP2 os on scan disks website, If vista rejects the install package off of the scan disk website, let me know and i'll extract the drivers and build an install for them for you.

Vista has not been out long enough for any company to state that there product is compatible. I would check there website to see if they have updated drivers that will make the sandisk usb drive compatible. This may fix the problem!

Nexxtech 3.5" Hard Drive Enclosure (NHDE35)


I'm not saying this will solve all problems, but it solved it for me. I am running Vista and got this to work following someone's instructions from another forum.

The slot in the enclosure that you plug the hard drive into has one set of holes fewer than the hard drive has pins. This means you can plug the hard drive in two ways "left" and "right" if you will. I had to plug my hard drive in so that the unused pins were farthest from the power cable that plugs into the hard drive.

Incidentally this made the screw holes line up better, too.
