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 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.

Hey my webcam is not working. MY model is an MSI FX 600. For some reason, the webcam is no longer detected by Windows 7. I use the FN+F6 button to enable/disable the camera, and the picture on the bottom...

It sounds as if the drivers were uninstalled or became corrupted in some way.
The problem is that the drivers for this webcam are not downloaded separately but are native to Windows 7.

Try this solution and post back if it worked or not. If it doesn't work, I will attempt to help you further.

1. Turn on the webcam via the FN+F6 keys.

2. Press Win+R to open the Run command.

3. Type "devmgmt.msc into the dialog box and press enter to open Device Manager.

4. Find the extra "USB Composite Device" and right click on it.

5. Select "Update Driver" and click "Search automatically for updated driver software".

Windows should find the appropriate driver and install it. If it doesn't, then post back here and I will help you further.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa.

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:

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

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.

Hi, i have a toshiba L355 S7812 and just upgraded to 7 -- everything seems to work except for the built-in camera, and i cant find a driver/program for it....the toshiba program from vista doesnt work....

If the Vista Driver Doesnt Work, You Will need to search out a Driver from Different Make/Model... OR install software such as Driver Genius or similar to Install the correct driver for you...Or... try uninstalling and rebooting..

1) Bring up the device manager. You do that by clicking on Start button and then type 'Device Manager' in the search box. Select the "Device Manager" in the list.
2) In the list of devices, you will see "Chicony USB 2.0 Camera" with yellow bang on it. You will see either code 19 or code 1 as error codes.
3) Right click on the device and then select "Uninstall".
4) In the uninstall dialog, make sure you select the option to delete the driver package from the system. This causes the driver package installed earlier to be deleted.
5) Then in the Action menu of Device manager, select Scan for Hardware changes option. This will cause the device driver to be reinstalled.

Laptop cannot detect dvd drive and wont load discs


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 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.

Sound problem

Hi thr,
If u r runnin Windows XP, Go to control panel. click on system->hardware->Device Manager n check to see if the sound drivers r installed properly. If the lists shows a yellow exclamation mark on PCI DEVICE, It means u need to install microsoft universal audio articeture drivers first. u can search for it on yahoo or any other searchengine to get the link. download and install microsoft uaa drivers, Uninstall the PCI device from device manager and re-install the audio drivers. I hope it works this way. Thank u

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.
