  • Windows 7 will not recognize the dvd drive

    Windows 7 will not recognize the dvd drive, although it worked well for more than two years.  Now I can't access it to install new software.

    It will not be displayed in the Device Manager, bad shooters to say it is not connected or is, tried Fixit fix (could not as "not applicable to your computer update"), uninstall iTunes (in the case of a conflict - even if it worked with the DVD of > 1 year), etc., but still cannot access the DVD.

    It's obviously a known issue, given that a support page - that recommends the fix or manually disable ALPM active power management.  If it of a known issue, why is not included in the updates and that I have to disable ALPM power if management it worked ok before?

    What now? Is turn off the power, my only option?  What happens if it is not yet recognized after that?

  • Comments Windows 7 does not install the network driver?


    I downloaded latest Win7 RC and installed on a virtual machine in VMware workstation. It not installed the virtual NIC driver so I have no internet!

    I googled the problem and it turns out that some people have reported this problem, and it came with a solution which in turn off the virtual machine, remove the network adapter, turn on the virtual machine, turn off again, to add a new and finally turn on the virtual machine - as described in this forum:

    I did and I've also updated vmware workstation (I have version 6.5.2 build 156735) and updated tools vmware on windows 7 and nothing worked. I have an another vm with XP and everything goes smoothly with networking and fully operational internet.  I used the win7 help and he pointed out this particular problem: there is no device installed network driver? Any suggestions?

    Each virtual machine can be started by double-clicking its vmx file.

    It is a plain text file. You can open it in every good text editor. Do not use scamblers text such as WORD and nonsense.

    You can compare the vmx file with the list of material that you give to the man behind the counter to your computer-friendly dealer store.

    You can add line at the end of this file - make sure you just you have twice the same line

  • Windows 7 will not install the driver for hp deskjet 6540

    I followed all the instructions on the site of HP and windows will not find and install the driver for my HP 6540. How to make Windows do what should or is there a reliable place to download the driver from?

    There is a driver recommended relatively complete for the Deskjet 6540 written by HP and Microsoft via Windows Update.  If the automatic install does not work, perform the following steps: connect the printer by USB.  Click Start, devices and printers, adding a printer, select the appropriate port and when the list of printers, click Windows Update in the lower right part of the dialog box.  It will take a few minutes for the update to complete, once that he choose the Deskjet HP (Hewlett-Packard no) 6500 Series.

    If for some reason you can't use the driver provided through Windows Update, you can download the driver from the Windows Catalog site.  The Windows Catalog site requires the use of Internet Explorer.  For the Dsekjet 6500 Series there are three drivers listed.  11.4 Mo is the x 86 32-bit driver.  11.6 Mb file is x 64 64 bit version.  13.9 MB file is the least common architecture IA64.

  • 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.
