Windows Vista will not install a program without wanting a disc.

I try to install a program on my laptop windows says to insert a disc that comes with it, but not everything has a disc so I say search online and it does not find anything. the only things I have problems with things like my Ipod, my external hard drive and my mouse, please help.

For the iPod, you must download and install the iTunes software.  For other devices, you will need to find and download the drivers from the manufacturer - if the keyboard and mouse came from Logitech for example, download the drivers from Logitech.

  • Windows Vista will not install updates.

    I came across Best Buy, bought the first thing I have seen & to the left. It's just the small things. My main PC is myPC music recording studio (never online) so for my this, that I bought... I don't care.

    a m9402f 7.00 GB 64-bit system quad-core 2.30 Ghz procesor.  On the 626 GB on the 'C' drive, I only used GB 129.  I don't know why I've bothered w/a Seagate external extreem HD 1000GO?  Works great, I've never used one before Vista but works very well.

    Thus, recent updates do not keep install .  What's up with the updates? What is happening with this? Should I just go buy Windows 7?  I spend hours looking for solutions and never ask for help, but this time I am so tired so I'm going to ask.  Below are updates that keep a failure... Notice they're on SP2 * and IE8. My PC alread had installed SP2.  I tried an update for this.  I have switch from IE 7 to 8. I don't see any other reasons.

    Maybe I'm missing something?

    My computer is compatible for Windows 7... should I go and buy and put an end to this? I could put it apart for just photo software stuff... Let me see it done 7 computers in the House.  sheeesh! Thank you... it's me now to lock up.

  • HP Pavilion running Windows 8 will not install several programs

    Hello

    I got my new HP Pavilion for about 2 weeks now and I was not able to get to install several programs. I can't install Adobe Acrobat or Reader, or my software (Kodak Easyshare) digital camera. At first I thought that this could be a problem with my firewall, bu the Kodak came a disc, not the internet. When I tried to install Adobe, it would download the files fine, but when I clicked on the installation software, nothing would happen (I give the permission to change my computer). For the program of the camera, she went through the installation process, but when I click on it nothing happens. Curiously, for other programs it has no problem. I installed Firefox and Skype without problem. I also tried to download Adobe frm IE10 and Firefox. I'm starting to think that there is something inherently wrong with the laptop. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

  • Another problem of Installation of Service Pack 1 of Windows Vista - will not install

    Hey guys, a greeting from Belgium in my first post.

    I recently reinstalled my Windows; This is a Home XP and a Vista Edition Home Premium (updated, so I need to install XP first).
    When I got it setup XP, which goes perfectly to SP3, I switched to Vista. All the small updates installed outside for a few "failures" caused by Vista stop updates itself, because they were not absolutely necessary.

    When SP1 popped up, I decided to download both and see other things, but when you try to install through Windows Update I get the error message "this update cannot continue while some services are still in use" or so, I don't remember the exact message or code.

    When I downloaded the SP1 on the Microsoft site, it worked better and smoother then Windows Update but also to is crushed when the progress bar has been a little more than half. Yet once again, I don't know the exact code but I do not know the message: "update cannot continue because of an internal problem.

    That's what I tried:

    -Retry it 40 times
    -Try in safe mode
    -Turn off all the other third part of the programs, including Win Defender
    -Tried the system update tool
    -Keep hope

    That's what I did afterwards:

    -Save all my settings
    -Rebooted and selected the dualboot XP
    -Formatted the separate partition holding the part of the dualboot Vista
    -Reinstalled on the same partition with the recommended settings, no change

    I would like to have an answer soon, people. I would be incredibly grateful if this could be resolved. Future changes may include error codes given.

  • Windows Vista will not install new updates after installing SP2

    Hi, I have a problem with the update of my windows. It started after a fact a factory reset. Here's the history:

    I have a some what old laptop (8 years). It came with a Vista installed with service pack 1 installed at the factory. Over the years, I did a few factory resets (every 2-3 years). I never had problems up to now. What is happening now is that I can not exceed SP2. I tried two different ways, none of them worked. After the reset, I first uninstall a bunch of stupid programs that came with the laptop, and then defragment and then have two ways to proceed. I tried to use windows update, installed more than 100 updates, updates install held until finally I offered service Pack2, installed successfully but then no more updates were offered. Then I tried a different approach - a new reset, uninstall, Defrag, and then downloaded and installed SP2 directly from the Download Center. And again the same thing happens. From the SP2 installation I check updates, download the new update agent and nothing happens after that. He keeps looking for new updates all day (about 50% of the processor by using all the time).

    I read some articles and discussions but could not find anyone with the same problem (most of the users reported some error codes which is something I can't do). I tried the fix tool - it does nothing! Whenever I run it, it is mistakes - sometimes 2, sometimes up to 5. Sometimes, it makes account all fixed, other times that it reports missing or corrupt files do not set. Whatever the results if I restart and when I try to check for updates again it is still the same story.

    Also I tried to install it manually IE9 as soon as SP2 is installed (I understand that this is not supported under SP1) but the installation fails. I expected to be available in updates, but as I don't get updates I tried to install it myself. Not sure if it's related (although I guess it is), but the Defender is not able to verify new definitions either.

    Any suggestions? Maybe the registry is damaged or some of the files using the update agent is are corrupt? There are currently no antivirus program installed that could block whatever it is. I haven't touched Windows Firewall somehow everything must therefore be attributed to the default values.

    You understand is that? I came across exactly the same problem... restoration of an old book to give to a family member, and every time I came to the point of installing SP2 and a more recent windows update agent just after, I couldn't install more updates. It would block 'check updates' forever. Tried twice, same problem. However, I tried some things differently the third time and exceeded the question.

    Let me know if you still need help, and I will respond with what I've done.

    Hey Brian39

    If you change the motherboard that you normally have to reinstall vista

    your hard drive if you ever reinstalled vista contains the drivers for the old motherboard etc.

    and if vista is pre-installed you can not put the motherboard unless you do so in collaboration with the computer manufacturer

    If a retail license, you can change the motherboard

    but you will normally always reinstall vista for reasons
