Q: [SOLVED] scanner/keyboard - compatible/not compatible with XP?

It's connects thru one of my serial ports. Does anyone know how to or if it can work with XP?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I plan to buy a new Dell PC soon and would like to keep my scanner, an Epson Perfection 1200 PHOTO.

I did a Windows XP-compatible hardware search and noticed that several of the Epson 1200 series scanners (e.g., 1240 and 1260) were shown. However, I didn't see my 1200 listed. Does this mean that my scanner is not compatible with XP?

(I did see my monitor, a SONY HMD-A200, listed, so I assume that it is XP-compatible.)

I would greatly appreciate hearing from someone who can verify these compatibility issues for me.

Thank you,

My scanner, which admittedly is a bit old (6 or 7 years) is not compatible with Windows seven (64-bit). The scanner still works great and I'd hate to just dump it because it doesn't work on my new computer.

The scanner is a Visioneer One Touch 7100 USB Scanner. I already tried the manufacturers website, no luck. They simply tell me that the scanner is not compatible with Windows seven.

I tried plugging the scanner in while I was on the internet and letting the computer search for drivers, ...... no luck there either.

Can anyone help? Or should I just give up on this? I don't want to damage this computer. The only thing I really used it for was scanning documents.

I purchased the Pavilion notebook and the HP Wireless Elite Keyboard and Mouse ComboProduct number: QB355AA#ABL. The wireless adapter that comes with the keyboard will not go easily into the USB port on the computer. HP technical support stated that this keyboard is not compatible with this PC. This seems hard to believe but truly, I have been working with computers for twenty five years and the dongle will not go into any of the three USB slots. Are these compatible?

I've decided to try my hand at building my own PC. I intend it to be a medium - high end gaming computer. I've got everything figured out (at least I hope) I'm just wanting a second opinion about my choice of motherboard and CPU. I'm pretty sure they are compatible, at least in theory, I was just wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them, or any advice for me. Hey, if you feel like it, recommend something bigger and better. I have a pretty good budget for this (within reason of course, nothing too outrageous).

CPU : AMD Phenom X4 9950 Quad Core Processor 2.60GHz, 4MB Cache, 2000MHz (4000 MT/s) FSB, Agena, Retail, Socket AM2+, with Fan (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=4016668&CatId=3496)

Motherboard : FX nForce 750a SLI Motherboard - NVIDIA 750a SLI, Socket AM2/AM2+, ATX, Audio, Video, HDMI, DVI, PCI Express 2.0, Gigabit LAN. S/PDIF, USB 2.0, eSATA, RAID (http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=3930721&CatId=13)

One big question I have, however, is whether a GeForce 8800GT graphics card with its super long design would fit correctly or at all in that motherboard. The 2nd PCI-E slot has to be the first one used, so I couldn't put it in the top slot. I think it would fit, but not quite sure.

Anyways, thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to have a read through this, and an extra thanks to anyone with any advice or comments.

A:Compatible, or not compatible, that is the question.

why can u not use the first slot? the only problem should be with the case. put the mem. in before u put the video card in.

I bought a new Mad Dog CD-RW and I'm getting a "not compatible" message after I installed it. I installed it as the slave to the CD, then tried it as master and both times the message specied "slave and master"....

I have the minimum speed and RAM.
The package says the hardware is compatible with my system EXCEPT it lists almost every version of Windows operating systems except specifically 98se......and 3.1.........it lists 95, 98, Me, XP, 2000...

Could it be possible that it's compatible with all these OP systems, just not 98se?.....that's what the store is trying to tell me and I have a hard time believing that.............or is there something I'm missing?

Right before I tried to install the Mad Dog, I upgraded from 98 to 98Se.......'sighs'

Ok My Desktpop has 1GB Ram but recently its getting slower as I play and download a lot of games. So i was thinking of upgrading it to 2 GB or 3GB for better performance. The 1GB i have rite now is DDR PC2 5300 (667 Mh). So if I buy a 1GB DDR2 PC2 6400 and install it in my other slot will it work perfectly as its a bit different? Also if I buy 2GB DDR2 PC2 4200 (533 Mh) will it work with my other one without any problems?

My other question is when I install another ram on the other slot do I have to install anything on the bios or aything else? or will it be added to my memory I have now?

Also My mother board is Intel D946GZIS with 2 slots (with maximum 3 GB memory I think)

Here is the result when I scan my pc in crucial.com

My grandson who is in the military bought a new 23 inch computer monitor and then was deployed so he gave the monitor to my wife. When I connected it to her computer with WXP, the display was too large for the screen. When on the Internet you cannot see the minimizing icon or the X to close the program. In addition, the fonts were difficult to read and some window frames that contained text were so faint you could not read the text. I believe the new monitor resolution was 1080X1920.
I have bought new larger size computer monitors in the past and had no difficulty. I reduced the recommended resolution which brought the above referenced icons into view but the fonts were still difficult to read.

My question: Is there some way you have to determine if your computer can support a monitor before you make the purchase?

A:Solved: New monitor not compatible with WXP

I'm going to assume that's a 23" wide-screen LCD monitor.

Double-click that device to open its properties window, then click the "Driver" tab.

I needed to reinstall windows and decided on W7 64bit but now my Canon pixma printer IP4200 will not work,( 32bit version)
Tried the supposedly 64bit driver from Canon but still no luck.

A:[SOLVED] Printer compatible

I would hold off before buying a new printer. If it was working before and the only difference is you've installed Windows 7 64bit, then you should be able to get it to work.

One thought, what was the Operating System you had before?

This printer isn't wireless, right? So it is connected with USB? (Connect the printer first before doing the following).

You could try running Windows Update, after going into the "Change Settings" and ticking the option "give me recommended updates...", the update facility might (should) offer you the correct driver to install for the printer.

I bought a compaq presario case with just the motherboard in it from a friend so I don't know if it is the original or not. I have still made do with this computer but I don't know anything about this motherboard.

A:Solved: Is 1066mhz ram compatible

This motherboard does not support 1066MHz RAM and also the CPU you are running may not as well. It isnt worth putting 1066MHz ram in as it will only run at 800MHz
The motherboard does support 4GB or RAM for 32 bit operating systems
and 8GB for 64 Bit operating systems.

also if you decide to upgrade your CPU make sure it isn't over 89 watts as the mobo wont support it.

So i'm planning on upgrading my processor and the manual gives the following compatible processors:
Intel® Core™ i7 - 3610QM Processor
Intel® Core™ i5 - 3210M Processor
Intel® Core™ i3 - 3110M Processor

Does this mean that every i7 processor is compatible or just that specific 1? because i've tried finding it but that has proven to be really difficult.

A:Solved: Compatible processors

Most likely, it means exactly what it says; you need the specific cpu. Just because a mb supports a given socket does NOT mean it supports all cpus based on said socket. A mb bios must have the correct microcode to run the cpu at the correct multi AND it must set the correct vcore or cpu voltage. In addition, different cpus require different amounts of wattage ie pw consumption. The mb VRs must be capable of reliably supplying the required pw.

Since this is a laptop, you are going to be very restricted on what cpu you can install.

I've purchased an old m/board for a test and play machine. The m/board is a MSI MS-6156BX v2.1 with the Blue "C" sticker (PII and i think also PIII compatible board). I was looking at getting a PIII 800 (133Mhz Bus) or a PIII 1Ghz (133Mhz Bus)for it. From the information i've read from the MSI site for this board, it is supposed to support up to PIII 1Ghz.

However, what i am confused on is that the manufacturers state that this board supports a 66/100Mhz bus. So the question in mind is will the PIII 800Mhz/1Ghz with the 133Mhz Bus work with this board?

According to the cpu support list for this board, it uses 133FSB x 6 to get 800Mhz while it uses a 100FSB x 10 to get the 1Ghz. So because both the 800Mhz and 1Ghz use 133 Buses, will they still be compatible?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. thank you.
