I have a DV7-6179us and never had any problems until about a month or so ago when it became super sluggish (it's almost impossible to even type). So yesterday I formatted and did a clean install of Windows 7-64bit. I've been trying to download drivers from the HP support site but the page won't display them. It just keeps loading indefinitely.
I was able to get most drivers from a third-party website (that has the link to HP ftp) but my computer is still super sluggish. I don't know if I'm missing a driver or something is corrupted. I wanted to get the drivers from the HP support site to make sure...
I am getting back my Dell E4300 I sold on eBay because some dummy thinks the computer is slow (takes too long to load Windows) I want to reinstall Windows XP Pro with the MINIMAL amount of drivers/software required. Does anyone have a list of drivers I MUST install on the Dell E4300
I resently brought a new laptop probook 450 G1. I want to download drivers for windows 8.1 operating system. When I check the driver download page it list many drivers for e.g under wirless network they list many drivers. How do I know which one to download exactly. I tried finding exact specifications for my product but they only have a general one for the model no which described all posible haredware.
Dropped computer during move,lost all the disks and paperwork.Hard drive was damaged so purchased new one locally..Downloaded ISO win 7 86,installed used original validation.It booted up all fine but no drivers for mouse or Ethernet or wifi actually no drivers.Mouse works.
How can I download the drivers and save them to CD/DVD and install on machine.
I am trying to download drivers for a Dell Inspiron 14Z -N411Z to a USB drive through another laptop, because the hard drive on that Dell completely gave up. There is no installation software disc as it was on another partition on that same hard drive.
When I attempt to install the drives required to the USB drive on my Toshiba, it first wants to install the dsd.exe file before I can download the drivers. After I downloaded that dsd.exe file, I don't seem to find a way to install the required drivers as well. the DellSystemDetect.exe file wants to do that for me, but it is not on the correct laptop.
What do I need to do, to get those drivers downloaded on the USB, so I can complete the installation. I already installed the Windows 7 Home Premium (x64) on the Dell laptop.
If you navigate to the drivers' download page for Inspiron 7520, you will notice under "BIOS" that there is a version A11 (released date: October 15, 2012) available for download.However, the small print says "Applies to: Dell Vostro 3560 system BIOS". Is it safe to flash my current BIOS version A04 to A11 for my Inspiron 7520? If not, why is that item listed in the first place?
When I click 'Computer' in Win Explorer, Win Explorer starts to "load 'Computer'", as indicated by the tool tip on the cancel button (it says "Stop loading 'Computer'").
But why does this happen? What is there to "load"? If I click a drive letter the top contents of the drive are shown instantly, but not when I click 'Computer'. Also,
while loading the gray bar moves along the top of the window, but the HD lights do not flash any more than in ordinary use when not writing to the HDs. Furthermore, this "loading 'Computer'" gets slower the longer the progress...
Broadcom PXE ROM and it also said "Operating System not found"
ok i didnt panic. i tried to pop in the XP cd to reinstall windows. but to my surprise, the CD drive wasnt working! so i removed the CD drive and now i dont get any error except that i should restart the laptop.
so my question is: how do i reinstall XP without a CD drive?
i already have a 1GB USB drive lying around. i also have a IDE connector for my laptop HDD to connect to a working desktop with XP.

My little brother has a laptop that has stopped loading the OS, and now It keeps restarting.
It is a HP Pavillion dv6000
Most likely a virus has crippled the MBR (Master Boot Record) That's what the original thought was.
Here is what I have already tried: -- Tried running HP recovery (nothing) -- Tried resetting to factory defaults. -- Tried loading and XP disc in to use the recovery program on that. (Laptop came with Vista I do not have a disc) ((After this is when it started to continuously restart))
I used to be able to enter the BIOS. Now I can not.
I am utterly lost right now.
I even took it into my A+ certification class, that is where we tried the above.
As per my title my XPS will not load windows at all and i cannot figure out how to sort it, now i have tried the methods as featured on this thread [URL] .... crucially though the F12 key is dead so since i'm unable to get to the boot options . So how i can restore windows to it and just as importantly back up my files i have stored on my computer??
I don't know if this makes a difference at all but i do have a copy of windows on my external hard drive and i have a back up of my settings on a USB.
I just recently ran VAIO Care and did the system tuneup (disk cleaner/defrag) and now firefox does not load pages properly. I also tried reinstalling firefox. I tested Internet Explorer and it works fine.
So when I'm at home using my powerbook i use a wifi connection at 1.5 mbps and my internet usage is awesome.
But when I go to school and connect into my 3 mbps ethernet connection it is slow as hell. I have a PC and when it ran on the ethernet connection it was fast, and i've speed tested this baby and it it shows the internet at 3 mbps. Im not quite sure what is causing the slow down.

I get black screen after Windows loading, meanwhile everything else works (lights fans hard drive and sound). I tried several things i read on troubleshoot thread, memory diagnosis, hard drive diagnosis, remove and change place the rams, unplug ac and battery and keep the power button for 30secs pressed the plug ac without the battery but nothing. I also tried to use a monitor by hdmi cable but i get a blues creen when i try with the monitor. Also this is happening during a format so i cant even get through safe mode.
Just wondering if everyone else's slot loading drive vibrates the entire machine when in use as well? It's much more noticeable than my old laptop and Im worried the vibrations might damage the hard drive over the long term.
it's been like a year when i bought my aspire 5920g and everything run fine.
It's been about one month that sometimes the computer hangs up at welcome screen or loading the taskbar( the icons are loaded but you cant press them) and the mouse pointer keeps spinning(like it's busy) and nothing happens and I cannot press anything. So i have to restart the pc manually and run a check disk, and every time the problem is solved (this is annoying). But these days the chkdsk command cannot resolve the problem. Today after welcome screen it hangs on black background and only the cursor can move. I restarted several time and it keeps freezing. So basically i cant start windows.
