    Well tbh I thk it was a problem with some old drivers I had hanging about my HD, I deleted a load of old stuff and reinstalled the latest driver for it and bingo things were fine. However I'm working away atm and the GF just rang to say she was downloading a new skype update and that windows has just hung on her, so she switched off the comp and goes to bed. Anyways thing won't start now in any kinda fasion not even in safe mode. It reports that it must be some new hardware causing the problem. GF is not really tech minded so she drops it into a loacl computer store and he wants to back up the HD and fiddle with it. Ah well some guy is gonna have a good old root through my comp (sigh).

The problem may reside in the monitor being used, rather than the display card. Older monitors are incapable of displaying resolutions or frame rates beyound their maximum.

I have a Netgear Wireless N150 router. It has been installed on our 2 computers. However, I had to reinstall Windows Vista on one and when I tried to reinstall the router, it tells me "No working...


Sounds like the driver for the network adapter has not be installed following the re-install of vista

to verify
go to start-->control panel-->System
Click on 'Device Manager'
Look for any devices that have a question mark or exclamation mark next to them
I suspect you will find something like 'Ethernet controller' which wont be configured correctly.

You will probably need to download the driver, using your other machine and then transfer to the problem machine and update the driver

If you need help identifying the driver then please provide details of the make/model of your PC.

If this doesn't solve the problem then let me know before rating this answer and I'll try to help you further

Good luck

Hi Jerry,

Sound Blaster is notorious for this problem, I have experienced it myself. Uninstall everything again, sorry it's a must, this time, do not use the cd for the initial driver install, download the latest driver first to your hard drive, uncompress the zip file to a folder on your desktop. Once you have the updated driver info ready, then install the hardware and use the new driver when asked by windows to install it, this should correct the problem. Also, make sure the default sound card is sound blaster using the control panel, sounds and audio devices, audio tab.

Let me know how it works out for you.

I'm not sure if I understand clearly, you are having problems getting the driver cd to install?
Try a manual run by inserting the cd then go to Start>Run- then browse for the drive where the cd is located and then select open, you may need to choose install.exe of there isn't a setup.exe option
