How to Load a Device Driver

<span>Instructional step<br /></span> <ol> <li> Enter the device command into the "config.sys" file for older Windows operating systems. These commands can define whether the device is loaded normally or if it is to be loaded into upper memory.

Select "Properties." Select the Hardware tab and click on "Device Manager" to open up the window that shows all the devices connected to the computer and allows access to the drivers for these devices.<br /> </li> <li> Locate the driver that you need to install either from <a href="">the Internet</a> or on a CD or other media that came with the computer from the manufacturer. Look at the Device Manager screen and find the device that has a yellow exclamation point on it indicating that there is a problem with the driver for that device.<br /> </li> <li> Click the icon (right click) and select "Update Driver." Read the Hardware Setup Wizard window that opens and follow the directions carefully. When asked to have Windows find the driver select "No" and then browse to the location of the driver that you have.

How to disable Autoplay of Audio CDs and USB Drives in windows


All recent versions of widows contain features called AutoPlay and AutoRun. AutoPlay lets you choose which program to use to start different kinds of media, such as music CDs, or CDs or DVDs containing photos. For example, the first time you try to play a music CD, AutoPlay asks which media player you want to use, if you have more than one installed on your computer. You can change AutoPlay settings for each media type.Autorun is the technology used to start many programs or enhanced content (such as videos on a music CD) automatically when you insert a CD or USB drives into your computer. This is different from AutoPlay, but the result are the same, when inserted, the CD or USB drive starts automatically, using a particular program. Autorun is incorporated into the media types that use it, and you can't modify it.
When a disc is inserted or a drive is connected to your computer, Windows looks in the root directory of the disc or drive for a file named autorun.inf. If found, Windows executes the instructions in that file. ( whether it be start the music or install the virus.)
For example, an autorun.inf file on a CD might contain a line that reads open=setup.exe. This tells your computer to launch a setup program as soon as the CD is inserted into the drive

Removable USB/thumb drives use the Autorun feature to load files when the drives are plugged into the USB port. Malware exploits the Autorun feature to spread from thumb drive to PC. Disable the autorun feature to prevent malware from spreading.

For XP users:

1.Click Start and then click Run. Type gpedit.msc and click OK. The Group Policy window will open.


2. In the left pane, double-click Administrative TemplatesIn the right pane, double-click System, scroll down the list and double-click Turn Off Autoplay

3.In the Turn Off Autoplay Properties window, select Enabled. From the dropdown next to Turn Off Autoplay on, select All drives and then click OK.


4.Exit Group Policy by selecting File, then choosing Exit from the menu.

How to boot with usb flash drive. detailed please, I'm trying to many diff ways nothing working, bios is the only thing on comp.

It is possible to boot from a USB drive....but only if the USB drive has been formatted as bootable, in the same way that OS CDs and DVDs are bootable media. You have to have an operating system either on the hard drive or on the flash drive in order to boot the computer. The BIOS is simply a "Basic Input-Output System" that interfaces the computer hardware to the OS, whatever media it is on. That is why you have to select the boot device and the boot device priority in the BIOS during setup, so it can direct itself to the bootable OS. Once you have installed an OS, then all will work fine. Until then, you will continue to have issues. Normally, with Window-based systems (you don't say what OS you are trying to use), you would insert the bootable Windows setup disk in the CD/DVD drive, ensure the BIOS was set to boot to CD/DVD first, and start the computer. The windows setup file would load itself and start the OS install process. It may even be necessary to partition and format the hard drive during this evolution, but the setup program would lead you through that as well. I have seen Windows setup files loaded to USB sticks, but they require a special process to generate so the BIOS sees the USB as bootable.

How do I load the software? When I put the disc in there are no instructions on how to load it into my computer

There should be a setup.exe or install.bat file located usually at the root folder, if installation doesn't start automatically, maybe you have disabled auto play for your CD/DVD drive, to enable it, please go to control panel, look for Auto Play feature and select the action to take according to your disk type (data,media).

When you load an OS and you press F6 to load raid or SATA drivers, where is this information stored? Is it on the bios, CMOS, or on the hard drive that you are attempting to install?

Actually, the RAID and/or SATA drivers to be loaded using the F6 option have to be provided by you. They can be loaded from a USB flash drive or an external floppy drive.

The process is as follows:

1. You proceed to your motherboard/hard drive manufaturer's support site and locate the driver for the hardware you need it for.

2. You put that driver on one of the two media devices (floppy or flash) being sure you've carefully read the instructions for loading that driver in such a way that Windows can receive and install it.

3. You attach that media to your computer before you boot into the install disc and when prompted to press F6 do so. Shortly after you'll reach the point where the Setup asks for the RAID oe third party driver and you need to direct it to the driver by browse and choose the media if it doesn't find it by itself.

4. Highlight the driver in the selection window and click/hit enter however prompted to do so.

If you've executed all steps correctly, the driver will load and setup will continue an compete successfully.

Best Ragards and Good Luck!

I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 4600. The DVD drive has stopped working, It works correctly with a lens cleaner disc. but when I try any other disc I get the following message '' windows cannot read from...

Load a CD in the drive then go to My Computer and right click on the drive letter. Now click on explore and see if it opens the folders on the CD. If it can not read the CD files then you may need to replace the drive. Check that the driver is properly loaded and windows recognized the drive properly. Control Panel-System-Hardware-Device Manager then select the CD Drive to see the status of the driver. If it has an error you may need to replace the driver. Another thing to do is go into the Bios setup when starting the computer and see if the Drive is recognized properly. While you are in the Device Manager look at the tab for "Region" which should be set for Region 1. If it is not set for 1 it would cause this problem. Good Luck

Cant get programe disc to load

Goto "my computer" -> right click on CD drive/DVD drive icon and select open. you will find all the contents present in the CD. Browse to appropriate folder where your program is located and run its setup.exe file to start installation. this is how you can do it manually. I hope this solves your problem.
