Cannot install a new SATA hard drive in Dell Optiplex 170 L.  Windows XP Pro SP3 cd cannot find the hard drive. Need help please.


This problem is related to the installation of the equipment, I would suggest you get in contact with the system manufacturer for assistance that you need the BIOS (Basic Input Output System) Setup to install the new Windows XP SATA drive. Will also need you a floppy drive to install the new SATA drive.

  • Blue screen after installing the driver for windows phone 7

    Hi all

    I installed the new version of Zune. When I connect my Windows 7 phone (HTC Mozart) to my computer (Vista SP1), the driver will install automatically. After that, he tells me to restart. When I do this, and when windows starts again, theres a BSOD with the following message:
    Driver IRQL not less or equal
    This only happens when I installed the driver for my phone.
    Once windows restarts and gets me to error checking etc and after that, it tries to start Windows again go through the process of "update configuration". Naturally the updates are not properly configured, and it restarts and tries to restore changes. This pretty much goes in a loop forever, until I restart, run in safe mode.
    I have no idea why what is happening, and search on Google did not help so far. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    The minidump files show the recent errors are errors IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) and the cause of the error is OA001Vid.sys.

    The OA001Ufd.sys also seems to be involved in the accident.

    These two drivers seem to be the drivers for the integrated webcam.

    What you might try is the next update for the webcam to the laptop:

    Original title: printer drivers

    Thanks for the reply of Ravi Shankar. My PC is a Dell Inspiron 530. There is no specific error message except for the one I provided. There is a solution to this problem. It seems that if the print spooler is disabled (services and storage via the computer management), the installation of printer driver is interrupted. I manually activated the spooler on automatic printing and the printer driver has been installed immediately.

  • L750D-14R satellite - cannot install the driver for the TouchPad Win7


    I have a problem with drivers for the touchpad. I downloaded v Synaptics and me couldn't install them.
    "Installation of Synaptics (sync TP) ranked" I've got Windows 7 x 64. I've looked everywhere but I can't find any information on this problem.

    If someone knows what can go wrong and how can I fix this problem I would appriciate it.

    Never had any problems with installing the touchpad driver.
    I guess its not the touchpad driver problem but the problem with your system.

    First, you must uninstall the old driver for the touchpad.
    This can be done in the control panel-> programs & features

    Clean the system using some freeware like for instance CCLeaner tools.
    Restart the laptop between procedures.

    Then download driver Synaptics driver Toshiba UE page.
    Alternatively, you can try to install the driver for the Synaptics driver page:
    In my case it worked and this driver has added some additional options that I would change in the Synaptics touchpad settings

    > but without success.
    Does that mean exactly? You get an error during installation or what exactly is going on?

    > Only safe mode is available after the installation of this driver
    Why only safe mode is available? What happens if you start Windows in normal mode?

    And before you start a lengthy discussion: what laptop do you have?

    You may notice no problem if you install Windows recovery disk Toshiba?

  • I have to manually install the driver for Aspire ZC-102, updates when I move Windows 8 to 10?

    I have to manually install the driver for Aspire ZC-102, updates when I move Windows 8 to 10?

    I was struggling with this ACER for more than a year. I have do it I have back when it was still under warranty, 14 months ago. Now I've updated free online through Microsoft for Windows 10 back in early August. I had hoped that my mess was a stack of the operating system, but unfortunately, it's still a piece. However, there is no virus. I run Malwarebytes Pro full time with it has quarantined of PUPPIES as well as McAfee Anti Virus full time. I use cCleaner to keep cut up. I NEVER garguillo or browsed porn.
    I've got max 16 GB of RAM. I have very few applications other than Office 2013.

    Even if this thing was a room at the time where it was running Windows 8 and 8.1, so I want to try to make it work on Windows 10 without having to start over with a clean install. That's why I asked about the drivers.

    your ZC-102 will not have a direct drivers updated from Acer support, which means you have to rely on Windows Update by itself the drivers or get them by yourself.

    Let me give you 3 Tips:

    1) never use Registry cleaners Windows 8.x and above all, they are no longer needed

    (2) uninstall McAfee, he kills the performance of your machine, use the antivirus windows integrated, it is good and very light

    (3) If you require loading time fast on programs, think about an SSD upgrade
