Problems with installing Active Sync on Windows xp.

I have recently bought a new pc which is operating under windows xp and have tried to install the software for active sync. I had no problems with windows 98 but I am unable to install Active Sync on windows xp. I get so far then it stops and is looking for a driver which I do not seem to have. Can anyone help?

Do you use companion CD for Active sync installation? Can you please tell me which driver is necessary to have? Is there any error message and what is content of this message? It can also be that Active Sync is already installed! Please check at Add and remove Software in Control panel! Otherwise go to and download a current version of active sync

Active sync

Hey no prob sunli. What you need to do is install the "nokia pc suite" with the cd your phone came with. The set up wizard will guide you through the process.

Once you get it installed, I think (I don't have the pc suite right now, I had it before) the sync option you'll be looking for will be somewhere under the "help" menu, which is beside the other menus such as "file".

Once you've selected the option, the install "active sync" will be displayed on your phone (you have to have it connected with the usb cord it came with).

From there you'll be able to do everything you need be done such as file transfer, manage gallery, etc.

Let me know how it goes

Windows XP will not boot

Hi there, my name is Alex and Im here to help solve your problem.

It could be a number of problems.

1: Have you installed any new hardware or software? This can cause some conflictions. If there is any new hardware you have installed and your PC is constantly rebooting, then remove that hardware and try booting. If you have recently installed new software and getting the loop, then start windows in safe mode by pressing F8 before it boots windows. If you can access windows in safe mode, then uninstall any new software you may have added.

2: It could be you need a new power supply. They are very cheap to buy and I would recommend a qualified technician to install it for you

3: Your pc may be infected with a virus and has affected the boot file. Try to repair windows by using the windows xp disk. Insert the disk and run using the CD. You will then go through a few blue screens and press R to repair your windows xp installations

I hope this information has helped. Please let me know if you have any questions or further problems
