Windows 8 printer, CD player does not work

Nothing will work with windows 8.  Not my printer, not my CD player, nothing.  What a waste of $500 for a new computer.  Directed to the landfill with that and go back to my old lifestyle.  Totally upset.  Cannot get any smart help with that.  Why nothing will work on Windows 8?

When you say that nothing works, are you talking about hardware?

If so, he blames on Windows 8 or Microsoft. Each time you
implement a new version of Windows, you must install the drivers
(software providing the interface between the hardware and)
Windows) for printers, scanners, video cards, etc., which have been
written for this new version of Windows.  And also note that you need
different determinants for a 32-bit version of Windows and a 64-bit
Version.

It is the manufacturer of the hardware to write and
available to download these drivers. Especially if your hardware is
older, it is quite possible that the manufacturer has decided that it is not
a value of his time and effort to develop drivers for the hardware that it is
selling more.

Check with the manufacturer or on their web site to see if a pilot
There are. If it, download and install it. If it isn't, you're out
lucky. Also consult their websites in other countries, if there is
None; Sometimes you can find the driver you need in this way.

  • Windows media player does not work as no driver DVD

    Had to format drive (trojan) & reinstall Windows XP home. Now Windows media player does not work as no DVD driver download from Toshiba site?

    Hello

    Usually the Windows media Player is not able to read DVD movies IF no plugins were installed.
    To watch DVDs, you can use programs such as WinDVD or PowerDVD.
    These programs are designed for the DVD play!

    But you can also visit the Microsoft Web site and search plug-ins for Windows Media player.
    Then you can download and install to play a DVD with WMP

  • ""(Print Screen) print Scr key does not work is not in Windows XP Pro - (no LOCK "F") "."

    I have Windows XP - Pro.  The "Print Scr" button does not work and niether is the combination of keys 'Alt + P'.  My keyboard is not an "F LOCK" / key "F Lock feature" because it has a "Num Lock" key  There's no other keys on my key Board that suggest even a '___Lock' of any kind.  If not, how can I get this feature.  Oh... and one more thing, Microsoft/people sending responses to others, here, to "Social responses" can you try to be a little more specific with what you're talking about?  As your knowledge is greatly appreciated by many, many of us are unfamilliar with computers and have NO idea what you're referring to.  When Microsoft did not find something or is just lazy to do so, he advises people to "ask the administrator of the computer.  I'm the "computer administrator", but I'm inexperienced! How does it work?  Thank you all.

    In the days of DOS, the print screen button to print the screen. But
    in all versions of Windows, it works differently and the name of

    PrtScrn captures the entire screen and Alt-PrtScrn captures activate

    Either a capture of the image in the Windows Clipboard. Once it is in

    This ability to manipulate the image in a program before printing
    is an improvement on the original method of printing the whole back.

  • Satellite P25-S520 - DVD player does not work properly

    Difficulty of DVD player or buy the external drive

    My DVD player does not work properly, in fact it can never work properly. Recently, I tried to back up my PC on a DVD using Norton 360. Norton did not recognize that the DVD was present. Then I tried to write a text file on a DVD and was a failure. DVD + R and DVD-R media were found to be (Maxwell 16 X).

    I could have probably lived with this however, I received a copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10 on a CD and my Toshiba would not recognize it. I tried the CD in my laptop nearby and it was recognized.

    An attempt to update the driver has also fails.

    I was able to copy a CD of music last night so that at least works properly.

    Does anyone know how can I fix? The important part is to be able to load my new program.

    Research on some forums I found that other people have had problems with the Pioneer drive. If the drive can't be fixed, I'm not adverse to buying an external DVD drive. Unfortunately, where I live there is no brick and mortar stores selling external drives and I prefer to avoid the hassle of getting a drive online and discovering that it does not work with my Toshiba. Can someone suggest an external USB drive that will read and write CD and DVD and is certain to be compatible with my Toshiba?

    Thanks for any help,

    Any external USB CD/DVD drive will be compatible with your laptop.

    However, you won't be able to boot from CD (run recovery for example) If you are using an external drive.

    So, your best option would be to replace the internal drive with a Toshiba drive designed for the laptop. Call an ASP and request a quote.
