OK I actually suspect ya MP3 player has gone Flakey ... ya say it won't detect "Devices" But, have ya tried "Other" things? or is it "Just" this particular MP3.. ?

In any event I would up date your USB drivers from manufacturers web site.

My lg laptop is not sounding out, and it shows sound device not detected


Isaac, their are so many reasons why the speakers wont sound. since its showing sound device not detected, it is possible that the for your audio device is not installed. if you use a windows7 operating system, on the start search type device manager when it comes out , click on it. go down to audio rightclick and select update drivers. if searches and didnt find it, then insert the driver disc your system came with. this should do it.

another reason why the speakers wont sound is if their is a hardware faliure. in this case all you have to do is see a technician or a computer engineer.

am sure this will do.

cheers!

My wevcam on VGN-CR510E is not detected? please help!


First check whether the built in Camera is recognized in the Device Manager window under Imaging Devices or USB Controller.

Windows + R Key, type devmgmt.msc to access Device Manager.

If the Built in web cam is detected in Device Manager, then uninstall the Camera Device by right clickin on the device and selecting Uninstall option.

Once you uninstall the Driver, you can download and install the Camera Driver from the following link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR510E&upd_id=3586&os_id=28

Download and install the Driver in your Computer. Then reinstall the ArcSoft WebCam Companion from the following link:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-download.pl?mdl=VGNCR510E&upd_id=3596&os_id=28

Then restart the Computer and use the Camera.

If the Built in Camera is not detected in the Device Manager, it means Hardware issue and service would be necessary.

However, you can use a USB Camera and use it with the USB Port in your Computer.

Laptop cannot detect dvd drive and wont load discs


Hi,

If its detected in device manager then you have a chance to get it running, just right click on it and uninstall, if prompted "Delete installed device drivers" put tick in the box and proceed.

Now reboot...new drivers will be re-installed when you login to vista.

If its not in the device manager, then it maybe a faulty drive or just that it needs re-seating.

Consult an engineer.

Thanks

My webcam not functioning, how can i check what problem is it?


Hi Alex,

Considering that you are using the factory shipped software I.E. Quick play / Hp media Smart webcam...

Try the following steps :-


First lets reinstall the webcam driver...

go to device manager > under imaging devices or HID devices you will find the webcam driver > right click and uninstall it.
Reinstall it from the recovery manager > advance options > Hardware driver installation.
you can also download the drivers from
www.hp.com/support

Go to Device manager > click on the + sign beside Universal serial host controllers > right click and uninstall all SB root hubs.

Go to HP.com >> in the search bar type > sp42568
download and install the you cam software. It should resolve the issue.

However if you are using a messenger then try out with yahoo messenger. There are some messengers that do not work. For example : windows live messenger

Hope this helps..

Regards,
Anup

Wireless switch


Hi,

try downloading the latest driver for the device, from the manufacturers website.
There are different wireless modem cards, in different laptops.
Try This:- go to MyComputer/Control Panel/System/Device manager. if you have any yellow exclamation marks by any of the devices, then they are not functioning correctly. either re-install the driver. Or uninstall reboot the computer, when the hardware wizard detects the device, you will get options to search/ re-install driver et,c.

thankyou for using Fixya.

Usb drivers


Dear evildog62,

The reasons why your external storage decive (like the mpr player) works for about 20 seconds only are many. It sounds like you may have conflicting devices that will kick off your mp3 off the system when they load. I recommend doing a boot in safe mode and seeing if it stays. If it does, then boot normally and try uninstalling the USB devices completely from the Device Manager, including the USB hubs. When you detect new hardware everything should line up and stay in place.

Good luck!

My sony VGN N220E does not detect external devices


Try reinstalling your usb ports.

1. goto desktop, right click on my computer and press manage.
2. goto the device manager, find the usb devices / ports.
3. Make sure you are useing a ps2 mouse / keyboard since if your mouse/keyboard is connected to usb they will stop working untill your pc is restarted and the devices are reinstalled.
4. Uninstall all usb devices.
5. after all usb devices are uninstalled reboot the pc.

If the problem is with your drivers ( your pc detects the mp3 player but no drivers found) Download the newest drivers for your product and operateing system from the vendors website.
