How To Make Hardware To Install Automatically Without "found New Hardware Wizard"?

I am on xp professional. If i change my mouse or my keyboard for usb one, windows won't automatically install driver for these simple devices. It will ask my help to make the installation (i just need to click on "next"). I would like windows to instal alone this kind of stuff without prompting with "found new hardware wizard". Any help would be appreciated.

Laptop Hd Compatibility

My laptop wont boot up. I'm going to send in for service but they said they proobably will reformat the drive. I'm trying to avoid having to take it to a data recovery specialist because i'm quite broke at the moment. Can i put my laptop hard drive into any laptop, then backup? If not, what spec should i use to know which types of laptops my harddrive will fit on? Is it the form factor size, ultra ata/100 eide spec, or what? Is there a part i can buy that the data recovery guys use to retreive the data from my laptop harddrive? What is this part?

Sdram Compatibility With P4

When i ran the 3dbenchmark 2003 program, i get framerates which are below average. I even get choppy framerates when playing nbalive 2004, unreal tournament and farcry. I use screen resolutions of 1024x768 for the games (sometimes had to go down to 800x600) and my desktop resolution is currently at 1600x1200 pixels. Is the slow framerate during games due to the type of ram i have? I even downloaded the latest nvidia drivers. Still, framerate for games which i should be playing at optimum performance remain disappointing to me.

Ram Compatibility Question

I am using an asus m2n-mx se motherboard. (Amd based i believe)

And, it says:

"A ddr2 module has the same physical dimensions as a ddr dimm but has a 240-pin footprint compared to the 184-pin dde dimm, ddr2 dimms are notched differently to prevent installation on a ddr dimm socket. "

-User manual, section 1-13. Then it has a diagram with some ram saying pointing to it saying "m2n-mx se 240-pin ddr2 dimm sockets. Does that mean any 240-pin is compatible with it? A link on suggested ram, please? A single 1gb one.

Printer Server Compatibility

I am am planning to buy a new printer and i would like to have it available on my home network. I found these print servers from lvl1 and sweex on the local market. http://global. Level1.com/products2.php?Id=881
http://global. Level1.com/products2.php?Id=773
http://bit. Ly/dxabrt

The first one, fus-3100, indicates support for mfp and gdi. What do these mean? Multi function printer (+scanner, fax etc)? What about gdi?

Has anyone used this kind of solution? Are they any good? Easy to use?

The printer i'm looking into is canon pixma ip4300
http://bit. Ly/9xpf3b

And a remote chance is pixma mp810. http://bit. Ly/bv64lq

Will these be compatible?

Apart from the above, does anyone know of an affordable printer (colour inkjet at 100-200$) with network interface?

Emachines Monitor Adapter Compatibility

I just moved to a new apartment and i lost my adapter to my emachines monitor. The price for one of these is going to cost me around $39. 00. The specs are

Input 100-240 vac 1. 5a 50-60hz
Output 12vdc 3. 5a

I have seen some adapters being sold on ebay from hong kong that have the specs
Input 100-240vac 0. 9a 50-60hz

I would like to save $20. 00 but i don't know what the difference in input amperage will do to my computer. The amperage is lower with the hong kong adapter.could someone tell me if this cheaper adapter will work?

Processor Compatibility With Gigabyte Ga-eg31mf-s2

I recently purchased a new motherboard so i could get better ram. I put the new motherboard and ram in my computer but it would not start up. It got power but it didnt get that start up beep sound and nothing comes up on the monitor. I have done some research and am 95% sure that it is the processor that is the problem. The motherboard is the gigabyte ga-eg31mf-s2
The processor is the (very old) intel pentium 4 3. 00ghz. My sources tell me that there are two types of intel processors:
519k and 4524. My motherboard works with 4524 but not 519k but i cannot find out which my processor is on the internet or from talking to different computer specialists.

Dell Dimension 4400 Compatibility

I bought a dell dimension 4400 over not this last summer but the summer before that i've been very happy with. It has 2 gigs of ram (upgraded from one with crucial ballistix), an ati 256 mb card (128 shared) and a 305 watt power supply. The card im looking at is a e-geforce 8600gt superclocked 256mb (part number 256-p2-n755-tr) and im not 100% sure its compatible with my system. I know it recommends a power supply of 300 watts. My system has pci express slots, thats about all i know right now. Anyone know if this card is compatible? And if so, will it be loud as *** either because of the video card fan or because it kicks up heat and causes the main system fan to run at higher power all the time? I don't think an upgrade would be worth it if things get hot and loud.

Compaq Presario Processor Compatibility

What processor can add to my compaq presario? Im slowly learning about upgrading my computer since i upgraded to windows 7 and added an extra 1tb hard drive which is nearly full my computer is running far to slow so im going to add 3 extra gb of ram. I want to be able to open multiple programs at the same time and to be able to search through my files quick which seems to be taking ages. I've also been told i need to buy a processor which i don't really understand the models? Do i need a new one?

I got this info from crucial if this helps:

Maximum memory capacity: 4096mb

Currently installed memory: 1gb

Available memory slots: 2

Total memory slots: 4

Dual channel support: yes

Cpu manufacturer: authenticamd

Cpu family: amd athlon(tm) 64 processor 3500+ model 15, stepping 2

Cpu speed: 2200 mhz

Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

Hp Pavilion Zv5000 Windows 7 Compatibility

Can i get windows7 hp pavilion zv5000?

Answer:-

Sure, i don't see why not. Not sure as to exactly what you're asking, but if you're asking if you can put windows 7 onto an hp pavillion zv5000, i'm pretty sure it wouldn't be a problem. There is a windows site that you can go to that will let you test to see if your computer is compatible. http://bit. Ly/2popc

Check Sata Burner Compatibility With Mobo

Is there a way to check what motherboards accept sata dvd burners? Also do most general motherboards now support sata burners? I'd figured my p5wd2-e premium would, but so far no luck, and since its temporary i didn't look to much into it, but wondering if anyone has further insight?

System Instability; Ram Compatibility Issue

I did some research and learned that several people got the mobile barton core cpus running on kt266a-chipset boards, including the kr7a, using pin-mods and the like. So! I gave it a shot, and all seemed well at first. I ran it at default everything, and i loosened up the ram timings until i could safely tweak them, but i was still getting data corruption. The weird thing is that in memtest86+, i only experience corruption at 98% on test 5. And in that short time, something like 20k errors, or several hundred thousand sometimes, appear. And the rest of the test runs fine no matter how long you leave it going. I've tested it
With every combination of timings i could think of, i even used a stick of ram from another system that i knew to be working. There were no such problems when the original xp2100+ was installed, so all i can think is that there must be some ram compatibility problem.

Nvidia 512mb 7600gs Compatibility Problem

I have a gigabyte motherboard ga-8ig 1000 pro that has a agp 8x slot. The motherboard had a built in vga integrated on the intel 865g chip. It does however allow for an agp expansion. I bought the nvidia 7600 gs agp card and installed it. When i installed the drivers i got a message 'the logos are not approved by win xp' i installed it anyway. The card fan works and i can only get the bare lowest resolution and 8bit 256 colors. Is there an incompatibly or would the card be faulty?

Ati Radeon Hd 3870 X2 Card Compatibility

So the other day i had many power surges where i live and the next morning when i woke up i could not get any video at all. At the time i was using two sli cards in my evga nforce 680i sli board so i assumed the cards were shot. Anyway i got a great deal on and ati radeon hd 3870 x2 card, it arrived and i plugged it in to no avail. Blank screen. After some more research i came to the conclusion that it was not my video cards that went out but my slots on the board themselves cause the old cards worked fine when i tried them in my friends board, and they are recognized in device manager on my board as well. The new ati card will not show up in device manager and i get no display from it. I contacted where i got the card from originally thinking maybe it was a bad card and was sent another as replacement. Same thing, no video. Im not trying to run the 2 ati cards in crossfire as i know this is an sli board but i still would like to have one running as i am currently using a 4mb agp card which limits me to practically nothing. Are these ati cards compatible with this motherboard, i have updated to the latest bios btw.
