What's the manufacturer and model of the motherboard? Usually if you know the motherboard maker and model, you can go to their website, under support you'd be able to download the drivers for it.

When I download a program an click to install it a box pops up saying the download I am trying to install is not a valid Win32 application. This is a new problem. I have not had any problems downloading in...


This error message could be caused by a number of things. Generally it's because the program being downloaded is corrupt or didn't download completely. Have you tried a different browser to do the downloads? If it's a very large download you may encounter problems with losing packets. A download manager may help.

Also, you may want to try doing a restore to system restore point to a date when you weren't having this issue. System Checkpoint dates (in bold) are usually very safe points to restore to. I would also recommend a virus scan and if you don't have this utility and are able to download and install it (yes I know that's your current problem, but you can download it to a flashdrive from a friend's comp and install it), I'd get Glarysoft Utilities and run the one-click maintenance which will fix any registry errors. It's free and is a great way to keep your machine running well.

If any of this helps correct your problem I would appreciate a rating. People here seem to take the help and don't show any appreciation by taking the time to rate the help.

I want to replace CD drive on Dell Dimension 8200. My options are serial ATA, parallel ATA & ATAPI. Which one do I need?


Hello,

This computer has 2 IDE connectors. These are parallel ATA connectors.

See: Dell Dimension 8200 Specs

If you get a drive, look for IDE on the package. IDE, PATA and ATAPI are near synonomous. They use a 40 pin flat ribbon cable to connect.

Thanks for using Fixya.

Compaq D510 sff Dma problem


Those might have been your specs but if you have updated windows some of your drivers autamatically change. Try rolling back the drivers or updating them again. The drivers change frequently when windows hot fixes are dowenn loaded your setting that you had and are trying to set it at are the ones when the system was new.
