Your best bet is to go to the manufacturer's website and download the drivers from there.

Refer Acer m3970 Can not Install windows 7 of new hard drive


Factory back-up discs and recovery discs are intended to repair defective installations or to kick-start an installation that refuses to start so it is unsurprising they will only go so far.

Your system disc might be defective. This is a problem I have had with XP in the past. It is possible your CD/DVD drive has a dusty lens and is unable to read the disc properly or perhaps the new hard drive has a problem.

I suggest you instal the new hard drive as a slave in another computer and format it and run the chkdsk utility. If all is well reinstal in your computer.

Take a close look at your system disc checking for flaws and perhaps put a lens cleaning disc in your CD/DVD reader before trying again.

I just changed the haard drive in my hp g72. when i turn it back on it says no bootable device insert boot disc and press any key what does that mean hard drive didn't come with a disc


there is no operating system on a new hard drive
you have to install the os
that means that you have to use a disc in a cd unit that has an operating system on it ( win 7, winxp etc)
you have to go into the bios setting and change it from boot from hard drive to boot from cd
then when you start the computer it selects the boot from the cd and the os is installed onto the hard drive
when that is done you go back into the bios and change it back to boot from hard drive
next you have to install all the drivers for the graphics card , printer, keyboard if wireless , mouse , microsoft office essentials to get e-mail etc
If this is all beyond you take it to a computer shop and have it all done

IBM thinkcenter says no os after installing DVD writer


Did you install a SATA or an PATA (IDE) drive?

First check that the data cables are connected to both the hard drive and the motherboard. (I know that I've frequently had the cables come loose from the motherboard on my ThinkCentre 8433 when I work in the case.) Also check that the power cables are firmly connected.

Next make sure that you have no disc in the DVD writer. (Or enter the BIOS by pressing F1 (IIRC) repeatedly on start up. Make sure that the hard drive is the boot disc.) While in the BIOS, you can check if the hard drive is recognized by the motherboard. If you don't see the disc listed, recheck the data and power cables.

If the hard drive was working before you replaced the dvd drive, you may have changed the master/slave assignment on the drives (if they are both IDE). Remove the drives from the computer and check the jumpers. (These will depend on the manufacturer. Use either cable select or master/slave as needed) The boot drive should have the jumper set to master or cable select. In the case of cable select, the boot hard drive should be connected to the black connector. The slave drive goes to the grey connector.

If you connected a SATA drive, try swapping the SATA ports (SATA 0 or SATA1) that has the optical drive connected to it.

The next thing to try requires either the Windows install or upgrade disc for your version of the OS (including the Service Pack) or a third party partition manager/repair utility disc. You'll need to reset the boot order to boot from the optical drive (or press F12 on starting the computer). Use the Recovery Console (for the Windows disc) to find any existing OS installs on your hard drive and attempt to repair the master boot record or boot sector if it still exists on the drive. Please add a comment with your OS for specifics on using the Recovery Console. (I replaced my WinXP with Win7 and the methods are different.)

You may have been unlucky and had the hard drive fail while you were working in the computer. See if the recovery partition (F10 on boot) still works or use your system image (Rescue and Recovery DVDs) will restore your computer to the last backup. Try doing the restore to a new hard drive if the recovery discs don't work.

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with any comments that will help me give more specific assistance for your missing OS.

I dont know how to instal the printer


If you have the installation disc that came with your printer, simply insert it into your computer's hard drive to install the driver. The application will also show a comprehensive guide on how to setup the printer itself. Please follow the instructions on your computer screen.
If you don't have the disc, you can download the Lexmark Interact S605 Driver from the Lexmark website.

How can I get my Belkin router to read my Seagate storage device so that all computers in the house can access said Seagate storage device?


1) Turn off your wireless router and unplug the external hard drive you want to make wireless.
2) Plug an Ethernet cable to the "Network-attached storage" device, and the other end of the cable to an available Ethernet port on your wireless router.
3) Connect one end of the USB cable to the wireless router's available USB port and the other end of the USB cable to your "External" hard drive.
4) Turn on the both the Wireless router and the External hard drive. Make sure that your Internet connection is still working.
5) Insert the installation CD and run it on your computer. Follow the installation instructions and install any utilities related to your external hard drive. There may be special utilities provided for flash drives that are not needed for hard drives.
6) Create a login name and security password for the "NAS" device during the setup process. When the installation process is completed, you will now be able to use your external hard drive.

START-UP DISC


I don't think you need any disk to reinstall your routet, you just write its adress into your browser. Useally the adress is like 192.168.1.1.or 192.168.1.2. could also be 0.0.

Change from default


I am going to make some assumptions here first is that the hard drive was added to or replaced in your computer by a store or by a friend. Is it possible that the installer altered your network card configuration eliminating the encryption settings required to be set in your computer for your wireless adapter card to connect with the router in your home? If so I would suggest reinstalling encryption in both your wireless router and to your computer for its adapter card as you did initially to get them working. I find it annoying too when service personnel change my computer's settings and do not set them back to their previous settings when they have completed their work.

I hope this helps.
