Troubleshooting – computer

 

Lately supposedly  the reason many even Vista personal computers seem to freeze up  is that some people have not updated all of their software, especially their Adobe software,  that Microsoft explorer also uses such as http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ http://get.adobe.com/reader/   http://get.adobe.com/air/

Someone said that Hell is here on earth for a start.. based on the number of daily viruses, Trojans increasing now that seems to be true.. http://thenonconformer.wordpress.com/2010/10/28/consumer-complaints-abuses-and-their-increase-was-so-predictable/

 Troubleshooting Tips  – Update and Fix All Drivers –  dealing with a Corrupt CD Rom Drivers –
 
Buying a new CD ROM and finding out that it has corrupt drivers can be a real bummer, but do not fret; the solution can be found easily, as easy as logging onto the internet. Do not go rushing back to the store when you have a perfectly viable solution on the internet.
 
1: One solution you might want to consider is to obviously find new ones. The drivers that you have in your possession are probably corrupt or damaged. Normally when you get a CD ROM, you do not really need drivers for the simple models, but for the cutting edge selections that are on the market, you might need drivers for Windows or any other OS to be able to capitalize on their more advanced features. The problem with this is that having been mass produced to such a large scale, there would definitely be faults on the manufacturing side and one of these can come directly from the drivers itself. If they supplied you with a CD with the drivers (for a CD ROM you have not installed), then you might have a problem where the drivers might have been installed incorrectly, and are corrupted, so all you need to do is to contact the manufacturer and get a fresh set of drivers from them.
 
2: The other solution would be of course to download the necessary drivers from the internet, and this usually involves finding the manufacturers’ website and clicking on the technical support link below. They usually will have the latest drivers there for you to download and a highlight of the previous problems of the older ones. Sometimes, it is not the case of the missing driver, but the case where there is an issue of incompatibility with your system and the drivers that you are trying to install. Sometimes this happens when the drivers are tested with older systems that have not been updated and since operating systems like Windows tend to update themselves regularly, you always need to have on hand the latest set of drivers on you. Downloading them from the internet is the easiest solution here.
 
3: What if the problem persists even after you replace the drivers? Well, before you panic and think that the problem might be with the CD ROM itself, you need to look through the help forums and technical help you can get online; there are plenty of people like you out there on the internet that might have the same problem as you. So you do not need to worry unnecessarily.
 
In some instances, it could be a problem with your motherboard’s onboard audio system, or even some other devices on your computer conflicting with your CD ROM. More than likely you will be able to find a solution to your problem posted by a tech guru or an expert on the subject and he or she will either post the solution or give you the necessary links you need to know to fix your problem.
 
If you ever encounter problems with corrupt CD ROM drivers, try the abovementioned solutions. What better way to resolve them than with hassle-free ways that do not require you to send the CD ROM back to the retailer which you may have purchased it from?

Testimonials
“I have to admit I’m no computer geek. When something goes wrong, I usually have to call someone to fix it and it costs me a lot of money. When my printer wouldn’t work, a friend of mine suggested I try ParetoLogic DriverCure a try. I figured it was worth a shot because I was going to have to pay for a geek anyway. I was so happy when it worked… and worked properly!”
  – David G.
“I upgraded my system to Vista, and my printer started to act funny. No error messages, but it just wasn’t working quite right. I read that drivers could sometimes be the problem. I looked online and saw DriverCure. After downloading DriverCure, my printer works great. You guys rock!”
  – Saul Cohen, New York, USA

“I figured the graphics card my grandson gave me was broken when I couldn’t get it work on my computer. It turns out that I just didn’t have the right driver. ParetoLogic DriverCure got it workin.”
  – Fred J.

Device Drivers Tutorial

Any OS must possess the ability to interact with physical devices, such as network cards, disks, and video interfaces. The OS must, for instance, request a file from disk on behalf of the user. This requires subsystem-specific function calls that make the request, wait for the disk’s response, then pass the results to the user.
This is where driver files, often referred to as “device drivers,” come in. These executable files provide the interface between the OS and the physical hardware subsystem. In some cases, such as serial interfaces, keyboards, and mouse hardware, drivers are often very generic. This means one will work with nearly any device of a given type (for instance, any PS/2 style mouse can generally use the same driver).
In other cases, such as video and network cards (NICs), the device driver is specific to a certain manufacturer and model. The drivers that work with an NVIDIA 7200 series chip set, for instance, may not work or will operate only in a very generic manner when used with a video card manufactured by another vendor (such as Diamond or Hercules).

Drivers provide a component of the “hardware abstraction” present in modern operating systems. They’re what allow us to create PCs and other systems that mix and match components from multiple vendors. In older minicomputer systems and even early IBM PCs, the hardware was fixed and interacted directly with the OS. Often this meant only one program at a time could make use of a given component, since each program exercised direct control over that hardware.

With drivers and hardware abstraction, multiple applications can make (nearly) simultaneous use of the same physical piece of hardware. The OS manages access to the hardware, allowing each program a turn at the device every few microseconds.

If you’re having problems with a particular device, check the compatibility of the installed driver against the list of supported versions. Sometimes upgrading a driver file can make all the difference in the world in terms of system stability and performance. You can try this tool
