Preferred Solution: my drivers removed from the hp support site

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.)

Everyone is facing this. HP is working in it. Check back in a day or so.

(Please pardon my redundancy - I have posted this to the Customer Care Board and Client Service forums - just hoping to correct what I hope was an accidental change in support policy.)
This is not a technical comment but it is a comment about Dell's Technology Support. Recently the support site for laptops, and I presume other areas though I have not checked, was revised to change its structure. In the process many items were removed notably having to do with drivers for older systems. Even if a system is past warranty that does not remove the responsibility for Dell to continue to provide the most recent (even if old) drivers especially since the cost of doing so is trivial. This is especially the case when Dell is the only source for specific drivers. A specific example is a Dell Vostro 3700 laptop which uses the embedded GPU in the CPU as well as outboard nVidia GPU; the hybrid video architecture is such that NVidia provides no driver and re-directs users to Dell's site. In the case of this specific model, most of the drivers that were present a month ago are now gone.
Dell laptops have two things going for them - good products at a good price and a great support site. This has prompted me to continue focusing upon Dell - e.g. two new 5759's in 2017, and to recommend Dell to colleagues and friends. I have had recent occasion to review some very old systems on HP's support site - all relevant drivers continue to be available. I strongly recommend that Dell c... Read more

Didn't know how to title this issue...basically, here's the deal: I have a school web site, on [email protected], which has a maximum of 10mb on the site. This is a constant battle trying to keep it under the 10 mgs, with all the photos and whatnot I like to put up there. I was thinking that I still have another three or four sites on my account; why don't I set up one site which is just the images, and link it to the other site. Wouldn't it be transparent? I mean, if I set up a hyperlink on the main site, wouldn't visitors just cruise back and forth at will without any hassle? And that way, I'd have much more space for images.

Please advise...it seems too easy...am I missing something?

Thanks!

p.s. I use front page 2002 from office xp suite (professional )
 

A:thinking of setting up web site just for images to support another site

I don't think you're missing anything. This is common practice. Most of the images on this page came from another site. Ads almost always do. There's nothing that says that the image links in your html can't load images from elsewhere. The ability to bring many disparate objects from various sources together on one web page is the reason html was designed the way it was.

Sounds like you have a good solution to your problem.

I was replacing a T450s with a T460 (same basic chassis & configuration) and discovered that the M.2 SSD that worked fine in the previous model will not work in the new one. This is despite the fact that the T460 hardware manual specifically indicates support for this. Will the BIOS be upgraded to support it? Can it be? I would never have purchased this new machine had I known ahead of time that the M.2 would not be supported. Very unfortunate -- if not outright sneaky -- on the part of Lenovo.

Not sure if anyone is affected by this or not....I didn't see any posts on it, so I thought i'd mention it.

Nvidia removed 196.75 from their website and have advised users to revert back to 196.21. There was a large issue with the drivers messing up the fan controls on certain cards, mainly the variations of a 9800gt it seems. Either the fans wouldn't work at all, of would not increase speed when needed, causing a lot of overheating, and in some cases, fried cards.

From the nVidia driver d/l page:

196.75 Alert!
We are aware that some customers have reported fan speed issues with the latest 196.75 WHQL drivers on NVIDIA.com. Until we can verify and root cause this issue, we recommend that customers do not download this driver. Instead, please stay with, or return to 196.21 WHQL drivers. Release 196.75 drivers have been temporarily removed from our website and we also are asking our partners and others to remove temporarily this 196.75 WHQL driver as well.

Welcome to NVIDIA - World Leader in Visual Computing Technologies

Hello All, this site is great! could use some more help. This is my first post, and i'm no computer guy, so talk to me like i'm about 6 years old! Here is what i've done so far.

Got "Windows Diagnostic" virus, it was that scareware stuff, telling me that my hard drive is over heating, and a million pop ups and that my world is imploding.

I followed your instructions in the tutorial and it seemed to get rid of it. no more pop ups or warnings.

After removal all my folders were missing. Gone, the desktop only had like 3 icons, like a new computer.

I ran a system recovery to an earlier date, everyting reappeared, all my folders and icons are there, but they are all empty. All my folders with files for my vinyl sticker cutter are empty,my movie folders, picture folders, every folder is there but empty. If I do a search for a file, its finds it, and it shows the location of it, which shows it in its proper folder, but if you go there.. no files. Again if I search for it, it finds it and I can open the file, so I know they are there somewhere.

Also seem to have a redirector thing too. If i use google, and search for say "bleeping computer" and click on one of the choices, it take me somewhere else like southwesttrainging dot com and to computershopper dot com but if I type bleepingcomputer into the address bar direct it goes there.

In attempting to prepare a trifold document I want to has a background color on just one of the columns. When I click on "background" the whole page is filled.

A:Looking For Support Site For Word 2000

I'm assuming you're talking about columns in a table, right?
On the main Word menu you have a Table pulldown. Everything related to tables is there.

Here's another way: select a column of the table, right click, select Shading and borders (or very similar formatting command), pick the color and you're good to go.
I'm not in front of 2000 right now, but it might be select the column and then Format.

Selecting the column is the roughest part, as often either a whole table or just one cell gets selected, so you need to do a bit of mousework to get it right

If you're not talking about a table, but a column of a 3-column page, then I have no clue. Perhaps you can just select the text in that column and give it some background or highlight.

I purchased a P50 a couple months ago and haven't had much time to do a whole lot with it until the last month.  Now I've been using it every day and had had a significant amount of Win10 crashes on it.  What I determined today is that in SSD slot 1 I have a brand new NVME and the slot itself is sporadically not working correctly.  If I let the machine cool down I can boot it up and use slot 1, however once it's operating Windows will crash under a high load where it gets warm.  Right now it won't see any M.2 in slot 1 - and I've tested 3 drives in both slots now and have narrowed it down. My first question is - is this something that's been happening or noticed with the P50 line? Second question is - does the chat on Lenovo support just not exist?  I've tried Chrome, Firefox and Edge in Windows 10 and Chrome and Firefox in OS X to no avail.  The support site just fails to even remember the serial I put in under my assets and when I do get to the page all I see is this: http://imgur.com/B1rWbSU Super frustrating as I have time right now to open a ticket and apparently will have to call.  I fail to see how the site is operational at all.

Hi all, Ive followed the instructions given to me by Tech support and gone to the link listed under my Service Tag where there is the option to download my Windows 8.1 ISO image along with instructions which Ive printed off.
I will be installing from a USB flash drive and the instructions to create the bootable USB installation media are straight forward and easy to follow using Diskpart. Then simply Mount the image and copy all files over onto the USB flash drive.
Im a little confused though when reading the instructions under How to Reinstall Windows 8.1. there are two options PCs with BIOS boot mode and PCs with UEFI boot mode. I purchased my Inspiron laptop late 2015 so it has UEFI boot mode with Secure Boot. Under the UEFI boot instructions it talks about disabling Secure Boot and for USB installation media set Boot order to Internal ODD device. I don't understand..a USB flash drive isnt an Internal ODD device as far as im aware.
So without doing anything to System Setup Ive tried inserting a flash drive, tapping F12. It says UEFI boot mode and Secure Boot is enabled and the flash drive is listed second one down underneath my Toshiba hard disc. It seems to me that I have to follow the instructions for PCs with BIOS boot mode even though my system is UEFI boot mode!! Am I missing something here?

Hello and thank you for your help,

(I am sorry if I added too much info, I'm not very tech savvy so I didn't want to leave anything relevant out. I have a TLDR at the bottom so you can skim the body if you like.)

My system is an Acer Aspire V5 laptop with 8gb RAM, 500gb harddrive, i5 processor and 2x USB 2.0 hubs and 1x USB 3.0 hub. I am running Windows 8.1.

Yesterday I attempted to use a different mouse from usual (Logitech G500) and then the dialogue box came up to install the drivers for the mouse. After it closed, I could not use the mouse, and when I looked further, "G500" was under Other Devices. Under properties it said "The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)". When I pressed "Update Drivers", every time it would fail to find the drivers.

This problem did not effect my old keyboard.

I tried unplugging/replugging the mouse, using a different mouse (very generic, on other computers it registers as 'HID Compliant mouse) and different USB ports to no effect. The Hardware and Sound troubleshooter in the control panel also did not help, and it prompted me to install the drivers for the devices over and over again.

After researching the problem for a while, I came across this article. It seemed relevant, so I followed the steps to delete all of the devices under the "Universal Serial Bus Controller" node, so that windows can reinstall all of the necessary drivers. This included 3 USB controller devices, my proces... Read more

I upgraded my Asus K53U laptop to windows 8 and ran the refresh utilities to remove bloatware because there was an error message about missing files. the refresh cleared that up but also disabled the multi-finger gestures for the touchpad. I loved that feature!

I have downloaded the drivers for this laptop from the Asus website but they won't install.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

UPDATE: Ok, I figured it out. There are no Windows 8 drivers. I had to install Windows 7 64 bit drivers. And not the Synaptics drivers that everyone says to try. My laptop touchpad is Elan something. Once I searched the Asus website for Windows 7 drivers I found them.

I love my touchpad with Windows 8! It's almost like having a touch screen. Sort of. :-)

Hello all

I recently went through a "Blond Moment". I decided I was going to update my SIS IDE Driver on my computer. I downloaded the newest drivers from my motherboard manufacturer, saved them to file in the C: drive
Now, heres the blond moment:
I uninstalled the old sis IDE driver (rather than changing it to standard IDE driver) and it prompted me to reboot on completion.
(Blond again) I clicked yes, I meant to install the new driver before doingthis, but I didnt read it right so the computer rebooted.
Now on boot up I get a BSOD. It basically asks me to check my harddrive (which I know is good, its new) or reinstall the IDE drivers (which I dont know how to do outside windows) or run a virus scan (done) to be sure that isnt causing the error.

I went into recovery console with hopes to restore the SIS or standard IDE Driver, but Im lost, and dont know how to do that exactly. Is there anyone who knows how to install these drivers (remember I cant boot to windows safe or otherwise)

OR Should I just do a repair install and will that even fix this dumb thing Ive done?

Thanks in advance!
 

A:Removed SIS IDE drivers in windowz, now wont boot

There should be an option on the Windows startup menu to try a Last Known Good. Have you tried that? It might work.

Also for future reference you do not need to uninstall IDE drivers before updating them.

Hello, this is my first post , bear with me...

I ran Malwarebytes and Adwcleaner yesterday. Upon restarting my computer, non of the programs are working properly. Windows starts up and I can log into my desktop, however, that is about it. I can not get onto the internet, firefox will open, however it reads "Server not found" when I attempt to go to a website.

If I try to play a mp3 I get this error message, " Can't play file. There might be a problem with your computer's sound or video hardware. Try installing an updated driver."

I attempted a system restore, I get this error message, " System Restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system."

when I attempt to view MS information " Can't collect information, Cannot access the Windows management Instrumentation software. Windows Management Files may be moved or missing."

The Malwarebytes application will not open, additionally, the Adwcleaner program does not show any files in quarantine on the application, however, I found several (dozens) quarantined in the C: drive, (I have no idea how to extract them or put them back)

I have attempted to load drivers via a flash drive, however, my attempts were unsuccessful.

Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated. Here is my system information, (prior to problem.)
