That warning is a common warning, you should not worry about it. All it really means is that the driver has not yet and probably never will pass Microsoft certification because the parent company won't pay for that certification. Microsoft forces manufacturers to pay a certification fee in order for their software to NOT to have the warning listed on your computer. It's a scam by Microsoft to get extra money primarily.

When i turn on my msi a6000 i get a blinking curser top left corner


You may have a missing operating system or a corrupt boot start up file that is out of sorts. The only option I have for you is to re-install the factory restore software that came with your laptop. You may have to download it from their customer web page the disk. Or you possibly can have one sent to you.
Okay now that we covered that possible solution. Last ditch effort here. Sometimes when you take the battery out and unplug the computer and hit the power button to discharge the machine. Wait about 20-30 seconds or so plug the battery in and hit the power button in make sure that you are both hooked up power and also battery is back it the case. Try that see what happens it cannot hurt.

It show windows name roxio update manager when I press browse it ask file name : UM.MSI and file type : Istallation Package


If you have the Roxio disk , insert the disk in the cd-dvd drive -point the browse location to the drive letter for your cd-dvd drive and click OK.....it should update the msi source packages and correct the issue. I assume this is requesting the original source packages and location. Possibly due to some corrupt or missing files. Will need more details on the message. If that does not work you may need to uninstall and re-install roxio. If it came pre-installed on your pc go to the manufacturer web site and update or download and install roxio from there. Hope this helps....

I have a problem with my msi x400..build in camera doenst work..


I would suggest "Un-Installing the camera. NOT THE DRIVER, then reboot and RE-Install it using the hardware installation wizard , letting Windows use the best driver.
MSI does not have a separate driver for your camera. It is part of a combination file on the page below.
On this first page the TAB for the camera driver says.........
"This device uses the native driver bundled in operating system."
...http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=nbdriver&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1859&driver_os_no=1#os
Which means your driver is on the PC already in the Operating system.
This page here has a combo driver
http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=firmware&maincat_no=135&prod_no=1859
Adhere to all warnings, cautions & instructions when installing drivers of all types.

How to install web camera (logotech 5.4.1) without CD


Depending on which operating system you are running, it is possible to install without the CD. Generally Windows Vista and Windows 7 are plug and play, which means you can plug the camera in and Windows will apply a generic driver to it, making it functional but not as functional as if you had installed with the disk. Example, you would not be able to use the camera software as it would not be installed. Check the manufacturer's website and see if there is a newer software for you version of Windows. You can download it free. The site will also tell you if the camera is compatible with your current operating system, which, unfortunately, many are not with Windows 7.

I am trying to instal the Camera Web but during the installation am warned by Microsoft that it will possibly damage my computer. I just bought this addition for only $14.99 and wonder if there is more...


Assuming that you have a CD installer for this particular
hardware, you can go ahead. It is usually normal for
Windows to warn you every time you install a new hard
ware like a web cam. My answer is yes you can install
it safely with Windows XP. But Install first an antivirus
software protection so that your PC will be protected,
before installing your webcam.

Does anyone have clue about the " Pro.Msi" File


An .msi file is a database of all the files, settings, and configuration information for the associated application. When you install Office on your computer, the .msi file is saved in a hidden folder. Without this file, Windows Installer cannot update your configuration, install optional features, or apply software updates. Office cannot be installed, repaired, or updated if the .msi file is not found.
Why is the .msi file missing? The most likely reason for Windows Installer to require the installation CD is because the saved version of the .msi file for Office has been inadvertently or deliberately deleted from your computer. It is also possible that the file is damaged or corrupted.
Occasionally, changing the drive letters associated with partitions on your hard disk can cause this problem to occur — such as changing drive C: to a different letter or moving the hard disk drive from one computer to another. Other possible causes are a damaged or corrupted hard disk or registry file.
What to do when prompted for a missing .msi file If you are prompted for the location of a missing .msi file, you must provide the original installation CD used to install Office on your computer.
  1. Make sure that you have inserted your Office installation CD into the CD drive of your computer. If you installed Office from a network, browse to the network location from which you installed Office.
  2. Click Retry.
In most cases, these steps should resolve the problem and Office can complete the installation and configuration of the needed component.
default.aspx?assetid=za790050011033I don't have the installation CD
Without the installation CD — or for computers purchased from companies such as Dell, HP, Compaq, or Gateway — you need to provide a repair CD to reset the installation created for your computer by the manufacturer. For information on how to apply the repair or installation CDs, you might need to contact the support representatives of your computer supplier.
In many cases, the files that you need are compressed on the repair CD and must be run by using a special program provided by the computer manufacturer. In some cases, the computer manufacturers might have customized the .msi file or changed the file name.
In situations where you cannot obtain the installation CD, your options are the following:
  • Continue with the existing installation of Office without updating. This is not recommended. Your documents and computer might become compromised from security threats.
  • Remove the installation and reinstall Office by using another installation CD. Removing the previous installation may not be possible in severely damaged systems where the registry is corrupt.
  • Run a repair CD provided by the computer manufacturer. For information on how to apply the repair CD, you might have to contact the computer manufacturer or consult the documentation provided with the computer.
If you do not know which version of Office you have installed, the name of the .msi file requested indicates the Office version you have. A table that correlates .msi files to Office versions is provided later in this article.
Office 2003, Office XP, and Office 2000 provide the Detect and Repair command. You can find the Detect and Repair command on the Help menu of almost all Office programs. Using this command corrects identifiable problems such as missing files, corrupt files, registry omissions, or damaged registry entries. It replaces the .msi file if it was deleted, damaged, or is the wrong version. Using the Detect and Repair command usually requires you to provide the installation CD for the version of Office currently installed on your computer.
default.aspx?assetid=za011526611033 How to prevent similar problems in the future To help avoid this problem in the future, use the following guidelines:
  • Do not delete hidden folders or files from any drives on your computer.
  • Do not move drives or change their disk identifier (for example, C: to D:).
  • Install all needed applications as Run from My Computer instead of using Install on Demand (available from custom installation within Setup).
  • Occasionally run the Windows Disk Defragment program to repair cross-linked files, recover lost clusters, and remap bad sectors on your hard disk. Any data present in a bad portion of the hard disk is usually lost and commonly associated with physical damage to the disk. This is most likely the result of high-vibration environments, such as the computer being struck, dropped, or kicked.
If you have Microsoft Windows XP as your operating system, consider using the System Restore option to restore your system to a previous configuration. Consult the Help and Support option of Windows XP for more information on System Restore.
Office 2003 .msi files If you do not know which version of Office you have installed, the name of the .msi file requested indicates the Office version you have. The following tables tell which .msi files go with which Office versions.
File name Description accessed.msi Microsoft Office Access 2003 Developer Extensions mui.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack (one for each language) muiwiz.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack owc11.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Web Components prjmuicwz.msi Microsoft Office Project 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack Wizard prjstde.msi Microsoft Office Project Standard 2003 pro11.msi Microsoft Office Professional Edition 2003 projproe.msi Microsoft Office Project Professional 2003 ptk.msi Microsoft Office 2003 Proofing Tools sbe11.msi Microsoft Office Small Business Edition 2003 vismuiwz.msi Microsoft Office Visio 2003 Multilingual User Interface Pack Wizard visprolmxi.msi Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2003 Office XP .msi files File name Description dao.msi Microsoft Data Access Object (DAO) lpk.msi Microsoft Office XP User Interface Pack (one for each language) lpkwiz.msi Microsoft Office XP User Interface Pack Wizard ork.msi Microsoft Office XP Resource Kit pro.msi Microsoft Office XP Professional Edition proplus.msi Microsoft Office XP Professional with FrontPage Edition ptk.msi Microsoft Office XP Proofing Tool Kit pub.msi Microsoft Publisher 2002 sbe.msi Microsoft Office XP Small Business Edition std.msi Microsoft Office XP Standard stdedut.msi Microsoft Office XP Standard for Students and Teachers owc10.msi Microsoft Office XP Web Components Office 2000 .msi files File name Description data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Premium Edition (all Office products) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Professional Edition (similar to Premium but does not include Microsoft PhotoDraw) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Small Business Edition (includes Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, and Microsoft Outlook) data1.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Standard Edition (includes Microsoft PowerPoint, Word, Excel, and Outlook) data2.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Disc 2 (includes Small Business Tools and Publisher) msowc.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Web Components orkdata.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Resource Kit proofkit.msi Microsoft Office 2000 Proofing Toolkit Note In Office 2000, the file name data1.msi does not clearly identify which version of Office you have. In this case, you need to inventory the installation of Office programs on your computer by examining your Start menu entries or click Add or Remove Programs in Control Panel and scan through the list of entries to determine the version of Office that is installed.
