Luis Fernando Perez... wants more answers to this question

did you just hyjack to year 2012? to NOW? OK lets do that.
so you have software issues with this relic PC.
missing drivers, and not stating what OS is loaded there?
XP? is it? if so say so, and get it at the makers web site.
Fixya makes no PCs nor stores any software or manuals.
the maker does. (and virus free, )

there they are, the one and only Toshiba OEM for PCs

the support there only does XP/VISTA/w7 , ONLY
That error is for missing shock protection device
it protects the HDD for if you DROP your PC,
it detects this fact and parks the hDD head, saving from disk crashes(doom )
it is not necessary at all and for sure if HDD is now a SSD with no disk or head s to protect, I have mine turned off in fancy HP laptop with 2 SSD inside.
the problem is there are so many drivers on the makers web page to find the correct one is not easy. and vast posts on all forums
related to this 1 issue, one poster found this driver to fix his w7.
no update history posted by anyone here,
upgrading from XP is impossible with out using the below updates correctly.
What Id do of w7 was upgraded is click and load all lines below with W7 in the title.

that is my report, full on this topic, YMMV, YDMV your driver may vary. and sure does BY YOUR UNSTATED OS.

that is the "Quick Launch Buttons" driver.
Check the HP Support site for your exact Model and download it.
if that fails, see if the solutions on this page work.

  1. No PC stated
  2. No OS stated, XP?
  3. No disks stated clearly. vast types exist.
must we guess all that?
sure DM, if its missing in DM the causes are.
1: the Driver for the unstated OS is missing,
2: the drive is bad.
3: the OS is corrupted, (XP will be)
if XP you must have SP3 loaded to run all those DVD back then.

WoW, that one is a good one.
If you are using Windows OS go to device manager, hardware, uninstall or remove device (DVD player).
Turn off the computer HARD BOOT/Cold Boot, not just reboot.
Start the computer and it should find your DVD add the drivers and install them. That should do it.
NOT all Windows versions are exactly the same, but, once you get to the device manager you should find remove/add devices.

Wireless card not functioning/disabled after loading XP in a Compaq Presario C700T CTO Notebook PC

The wireless is not going to turn on and off via the switch properly until we get the drivers loaded to make it work. There are 3 possible types of wireless card it could be, so we have to find out the exact model number of your system. On the bottom there should be a label that has a P/N or part number listed. what are those numbers. Here's an example of the label:


we need the info listed for #1, #2 and #3. Then we should be able to determine which adapter you have, and then we can (hopefully) find some Windows XP drivers for you.
