This is an activity thaty I would NOT suggest you undertake. There are dangerous high voltages present inside the unit even when unplugged. These can be extremely harmful.

In short: NO!!

I bought this microscope at a yard sale and need the software or disc to make it operational

Intel keeps the drivers available here. I installed a few years ago on 64 bit Windows 7 and it works fine. I cannot remember for sure but think you may need to run in compatibility mode - cross that bridge when (if) you get to it.

Hi, I have compaq 7540 monitor 17''. It is showing only part of the screen and when I shake the monitor or plug it displays full screen for a second and gets reverted. Please help on this issue.

Sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere inside the monitor or cable. Try using a different cable (if possible) or trying a friends monitor. If it works fine, then you know that's your problem. CRT monitors are very inexpensive nowadays, and you might be able to find one at a yard sale or thrift store for pretty cheap instead of trying to get it repaired. Hope this helps!

Requires Windows N T version 5.0 or later??? frm where? any free downloading 4 this

I never heard of this ... but there is a lot I never heard of.

Are you telling me that you must run NT (New Technology) (a version of Windows) for this monitor to work? I dont know where you will find this software that predates Windows 2000, unless you find it at E-bay or a company yard sale.

I think Id be inclined to plug it into just about any computer and let windows load a driver for it. It is a VGA monitor, right???

Please let me know what happens.

It just won't turn on

They are designed to be curious adult proof, hand it to your local 5 year old and it will be apart in no time =)

There are a few screws that tend to blend in on these, plus most of the case is held together with internal clips that will pop apart when enough pressure is applied.

Ok, now onto your power problem. There will most likely be a fuse (it won't look anything like any fuse you have seen before) near where the battery pack connects to the circuit board. It will probably be white in colour and only 1 or 2 mm long. It will look like most of the other components on the board but will have a marking nearby starting with "F" like F101 or something along those lines. The "F" is obviously for fuse.
Check any of those you see with a multimeter for continuity since there will be no physical damage to it.

Hope that helps =)

Power-on Password

You can get around this however it's not to easy. You would have to take the unit apart and locate the BIOS chip, this chip needs to pulled out, aswell as removing the the CR2032 battery which stores time and date on the computer. Leave both of these removed for a few minutes and re-install. This should wipe the password out. Like I said though it's not something that's easily done. Good Luck Hope this helps. L8R
