You computer is under virus attack.
PLease format and reinstall Operating system. Meanwhile if you need to urgently install something then, Press Alt+ctrl+del keys. Task manager will open (in XP), or you have to open it from a menu in win7.
See the running processes, there might be a process running like install.exe, windows installer, setup.exe, etc.
Click on that process, and then click end process.
Now you can install. please rate the solution.

I have downloaded driver for philips 170c monitor but when i go to zip file there is no driver there


These are the steps you need to follow to install the driver: Download from the link below:

Philips 170c Monitor

It is a zip file so you will need to unzip it into a separate folder. Once the files are unzipped you need to locate the 170C8.inf setup information file. Once you have located that file right click on it and you will see the option to Install. Click that and it will ask you to open it. Choose open.

If that fails you can do the following:

Installing a new device

1.Open Windows Device Manager. In the Device Manager make sure the device you're attempting to install is not already listed from past install attempts. If the device is found highlight it and remove it from Device Manager to prevent any conflicts during the install.
2.Once Device Manager looks ok reboot the computer.
3.As the computer is rebooting an install new hardware wizard should appear if Windows detects the new hardware using this wizard you should be able to point Windows to the folder containing your drivers either on the CD, diskette, or the folder containing the files you downloaded.
If Windows does not detect any new hardware open Control Panel and double-click the Add hardware icon to run the hardware detection wizard. During the steps you will have an option to tell Windows you have a disk containing the drivers for your new hardware device, at this point Windows to the directory containing the drivers for your device.

Once drivers have been installed reboot.

Hello, if looked this error code from Microsoft self, just have a lokk and see if you have tried all of these.

This problem occurs if you install a driver for a non-Plug and Play device, but Windows cannot find the device. Here are some things that you can try to resolve this problem.

If the Troubleshooting Wizard does not resolve the problem, do one of the following:
  • If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, connect the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver.
  • If the hardware was not removed, the driver files might be obsolete. In this case, update the driver from Device Manager. In the device Properties dialog box, click the Driver tab, and then click Update Driver to start the Hardware Update Wizard. Follow the instructions to update the driver.
  • If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, you may have to install a newer version of the driver. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Start, and then click Run. In the Open box, type hdwwiz.cpl.

If that doesn't work, i tried this program once at a frined of mine with the same problem as you have now and it worked perfectly.

No display after installed H4550 Driver on Windows XP


did you install the driver?, also did you run the "new hardware wizard"?, you might need to uninstall the "old" driver for the old card, then put in the "new" card and boot it up the "found new hardware" wizard should pick it up and install it, if it's "plug and play", let me know if this helps,happy 4th, and god bless

Lexmark X2650 won't install on Vista


When you run the hardware wizard tell the wizard you will select you hardware from a list or location. This will bring up another window and at the bottom it says don't search I will select my drivers, then another screen will come up showing any compatible hardware that windows already has in it's sysem files but press have disk and then browse to location of the drivers and install them regardless of what windows says. Sometimes windows will say that the drivers are not made for your hardware, which of course it is so you can ignore that or it will say that the drivers are not signed, you can ignore that too.

Code 41
Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)
Recommended resolution

A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.

If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.

If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

if you have the disc with the drivers for your video card i would go to device manager click on the + sign next to display adapter ,right click on the video card and remove or uninstall it ,then reboot pc,when windows auto detects new hardware , sellect have disc, and insert driver disc,.....(if this is what you have done already with no luck ) then when windows detects new hardware ,close it and run the driver software from the disc,if you can't run the driver disc, windows will load the generic driver, . if you are not able to load windows normally, start windows in safe mode (press f8 when booting up and when you get a menue sellect safe mode) to remove display adapter, this has helped me in the past
good luck

Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer


The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Select USB
Select PC
Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
Computer Management
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
