This is more of a corporate backup standard taht follows -- in my case used when the restoration was to occur 1/2 way around the world and I wanted to miminize problems. The question for you is can you restore the machine if the backup fails meaning you are willing to assume more risk concerning the backup.

Norton Ghost is a backup product that when I last used it allowed creation of backup CDs the first or last of which was self booting that could be used to restore your system as it was before the backup. This is an effective means of backing your entire computer up periodically to simplify recovery when you have issues like you have had. PS a backup such as this can be wortless if you do not know how to restore it and if possible have tested the restoration to a different machine (but similar) or a different drive placed in the same machine. Both of these strategies to test the backup and assure the restore may not be available to you but it is a greater risk not to have a tested restore procedure as well as testing the CD's to assure they will actually restore.

There are instances where manufacturer supplied software has had viruses. Generally as the CD's get older so do the viruses and it is more likely and up to date anti-virus program would catch them.

Downloads are also risky but one means to minimize that is to get downloads from the manufacturer's site instead of other sites.

SO if you have a tested backup and
your anti-virus is up to date and
your sources software to add to your machine is considered reliable, it would be reasonable to try again.

But this time you will be so much better off with the backup.

If you are interested you may be able to download files from the manufacturer here.

here are two links -- for DSB-C100 clear and white
they have driver links and manuals -- if you can match a manual you should be able to download your driver
DSB-C100 clear

DSB-C100 white
http://support.dlink.ca/products/view.asp?productid=DSB%2DC100White

White does not seem to have drivers -- I would read the manual to assure they are needed.

I have a Dell 530 S Dell Inspiron. Its Webcam has stopped working. Any solutions


The very first step is of course to check your web cam connection. Most web cams use the USB port to connect to the PC, so check if your USB cable is properly plugged. For build-in web cams this steps does of course not apply. Many new laptops have a build-in web cam. Also try connecting your web cam directly to your PC instead of through a USB hub (if you are using one).

The next thing is to do is to check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly.

It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem.
Other devices in Windows XP device manager

If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers.

In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.

If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer.

After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.If your problem is not fixed then you have to buy a new one.

Hope the above information will be helpful to you.
Thanks.

I have problems with my hp web camara it freeze it a lot on messanger any help


Hi,
If your web camera freezes check your Windows Device Manager and see if the hardware is recognized and installed properly. It might be that the hardware is recognized as a camera, but the right drivers are not installed. The yellow explanation mark will indicate a problem. If the device is not recognized in Windows XP, it will be listed under Other Devices
In either case you can try to update the drivers. Right-click the device, and in the pop up menu select Update Driver Software. Then follow the instructions on screen, but make sure you allow Windows to search the web for updated drivers. In case no driver for the web cam can be found, you can try a third party driver finding program that scans your PC for installed hardware and allows you to install missing drivers.
If this fails, the next step would be to un install the software that came with your web cam. Use the Add or Remove Programs feature in the Control Panel. If that does not work you can use a third party un installer. After un installing the software, restart your PC and then reinstall the web cam software. In most cases this will solve the problems. Depending on the software, you might need to unplug your web cam during the software installation.
If the drivers and web cam software are correctly installed, and you still it freezes, there can be a problem with the program settings. Most chat and meeting software have a configuration option to select the video source for the web cam feature. If you have multiple devices that qualify for video, you might need to select your web cam device as the source for the web cam feature in that program. Some web cams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the web cam if things are right. But is does not harm to check if your Java, Flash and Quick time software are installed and up to date. But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including web cams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c – Windows Vista: DirectX 10).

Thank you !!

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.
