The Xbox 360 wireless controller works with PC, or what I have to buy the Xbox 360 Wireless for windows?

I want to know if the wireless Xbox 360 controller will work with a PC if I just buy the receiver, or I have to buy the real Xbox 360 controller for windows to work?  Because I just bought the receiver only and installed, but when I try to connect it to the controller the controller just flashes and never connects.  Which leads me to believe that there is something different with the Xbox controller for windows.  Please let me know.  Thank you.

  • Problem with uninstalling the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for Windows

    Guys, I have a problem with uninstalling the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for Windows v4.00.22 on my laptop Windows XP SP2. Whenever I choose to remove the "battery Bluetooth for Windows by Toshiba" (or "Bluetooth HID Switch Service") the installation program starts to prepare, but crashes after a few minutes - the only way to continue is to turn off the laptop.

    The same thing happens when I try to update the stack to the latest version - the installer says that the old battery has to be removed first and crashes after trying to remove it. So is it possible to remove it by hand? I really don't want to reinstall Windows!

    I don't have a copy of the original Software v4.00.22 to recharge so if you have a copy or know where I can get a copy I would gratefully

    Thanks in advance.

    I would try to delete the folder: "C:\Program Files Toshiba Stack.
    Registry settings will remain, but should be repaired after a new installation of the Bluetooth stack.

  • Problem, reinstall the Update Rollup 2 for Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005

    I have problems with MCE 2005.  My hard drive crashed and the technician that restored my repressive said that he could not work in MCE 2005.  It's a shame because he was working before the hard drive crashes.  I work with windows XP.
    When I go to install the internet and begin to test the connection it gives me "Critical error of process - Code 2"
    When I go to the TV configuration, it tells me "Tuner not found".  Even if I know it works because I also Win TV7 in Hauppauge. My TV tuner is HVR-1600.
    With these problems, I thought that the solution might be to reinstall rollup 2 according to the Microsoft.
    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/910905
    However, when I go to reinstall the Update Rollup 2, it seems to be to establish a restore point and then it stops when it hits hotfix (KB891593).
    I took a copy of the mcelog and have attached a copy of the log below.

    Assistance or management, you can provide me to solve this problem would be highly appreciated.

    At this point, I'm a newbie to this and I don't have a clue as to the cause of my problems and any ideas you may have for me would be much appreciated.

  • When and what can expect to happen to my computer after the end of support for windows XP?

    What is Pageheap?

    The answer to your direct question, when you think that say you, is a Google search away.

    -It is not supported to Microsoft for an operating system you probably have to worry.

    It is your own ability to stay static, I want a computer faster, better equipment, a new printer, scanner, camera, etc.

    The manufacturer of the software or hardware that you use every day will probably abandon Windows XP well before the April 2014 date when Microsoft stops by releasing the same critical patches for Windows XP.

    Their new printers will have only Windows Vista drivers, maybe just Windows 7.

    Their new scanners, cameras, etc. will be the same.

    I don't see the major software companies (AutoDesk, Apple, Adobe, etc.) continues to produce products that would work on Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 and what comes next in 2014.

    Everyone always loves to find a single entity to blame for their reluctance to change with technology - but usually it's just the changing world overall - not a single instance of it.

    Having said that - there are many people who still use Windows 98 twelve down on the line.

    They can't see certain things on certain web pages, cannot use certain devices, they might be able to pick up at their local drug/warehouse, even store and using the latest versions of major software packages are probably a lost - cause but they do very well in their microcosm.

    So - it mainly depends on you and your ability to do not change.

    In light of your previous question, this web page may be one that is useful to you:

    http://en.Wikipedia.org/wiki/windows_xp>

    If you look under the section titled 'Life support', he answers your question in this conversation.

    More than one type of"from the horses mouth"?

  • What I have to buy extra (Norton or McAfee) anti-virus or is the antivirus in Windows Security Center enough?

    What I have to buy extra (Norton or McAfee) anti-virus or is the antivirus in Windows Security Center strong enough? I have McAfee on my computer, but my subscription has expired. I wonder if it is necessary to update? or if the antivirus and security installed in the Windows Security Center is all I really need. and everything is a little more kill?

    Hi RevStevieB,

    Windows Security Center helps improve your computer's security by checking the status of several security essentials on your computer, including firewall settings, Windows automatic updating, anti-malware software settings.

    If Windows detects a problem with any of these security essentials (for example, if your antivirus program has expired), Center security displays a notification and places a Security Center icon in the notification area.

    I recommend you to download & install the antivirus or security software up-to-date so that it works correctly.

    You can also download & run Microsoft Security Essentials on your computer.

    Hope the helps of information.
    Please post back and we do know.

  • How to use the rule in WordPad for Windows 7

    Aid for the revised new WordPad for Windows 7 does not mention rule. There is no indication as to the definition of the margins of sovereign or how to click on the settings tab.

    The margin for Wordpad settings are stored in the Page layout dialog box. Access it from the "file" menu (icon just to the right of the home tab).

    Change tabs is a matter of clicking on the rule itself. Once a custom tab has been created, the tab spaces by default in 0.5 are replaced until the tabs custom custom tab can be moved left and right to improve positioning, or dragged the rule to remove. The rule also allows to change the body and the first indents of line from any point.

    If you prefer to work with dialog boxes for the settings section/tab, right-click on any paragraph and select the paragraph menu item. It can also be raised with the paragraph buttonon the home Ribbon, then on the right-most button tab in the second row or paragraph section. The tabs button is at the bottom left of this new dialog box.

  • Where is the location of games for Windows Live Marketplace Temp?

    Hi guys,.

    I'm having if bad weather try to install Games for Windows live. I downloaded the http://www.xbox.com/en-ZA/Live/PC/DownloadClient Installer and ran it on my computer Windows 8. The downloader has downloaded the files required to install GFWL, but for some reason some got to the point where it said 22.3 MB to 30 MB download and then immediately jumped and said GFWL is now installed.

    When I try to open GFWL, it is ALWAYS asking for me to install Windows Live ID Sign-in Assistant. I downloaded that and tried to install several times, but without success!

    1. I tried to install with Windows 7 compatibility. -NO Succeess
    2. I tried to install as administrator (right click Run as administrator) - WITHOUT success.
    3. Every time when I open the installer, he don't ask me to redownload the Setup, which makes me believe that he jumps right to the installer downloaded previously, which the Setup file stored somewhere!
    4. I uninstalled and reinstalled SEVERAL times and did a reset later.

    I have reason to believe that this file is corrupt because it did not download the full 30 MB as indicated by the program. So my main question is, how do I delete temporary files, where the hell it might be, so that I can re - run the installation program and do the installation of games for Windows Live Marketplace program redownload the files from scratch.

    Thanks in advance!
    M

    Hi Morne,

    Temporary files are stored and used in the TEMP folders and TMP/system or the user temporarily a task is performed.

    Well, if you want to delete the temporary files, then try the following steps:

    a. press the Windows key + R on the keyboard. Type folder in the Run dialog box and press ENTER.

    b. press on Ctrl + A to select all temporary files and press SHIFT + DELETE to remove the temporary files.

    Once you have finished the temp deleting files that you can download and check the status of the issue.

    Thank you in advance.

    All the drivers for the laptop Toshiba EU models are available on the page of the Toshiba UE driver.
    If win 8 isn't supported on your laptop, this driver isn't available.

    But to my knowledge, these keys were controlled by Toshiba Value Package added (for Win Vista and Win 7).
    VAP isn t available for 8 Win / Win 8.1 more and has been replaced by the system of Toshiba driver.

    Perhaps you could install such system of Toshiba laptop driver that was released for other mobile phones latest models it of certainly worth a try
