Wont install drivers

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
hi,
recently my windows wont install any drivers, i install them with the software provided with my hardware (joystick and webcam) and after installation i restart pc, plug them in, and it then comes up with the new hardware wizard, but it wont find any drivers, i even tell it were to look and it still wont find it.
anyone have an idea of what my prob could be.
thanks

You may have to run the products install disk to load them vs XP finding them when adding new hardware.

sounds a bit dodgy to me, you should be able to click "have disk", re-run and make sure you didnt miss the option

When it comes up, tell XP that you already have the drivers. It's the bottom of the two tick boxes if I remember correctly.

Then, from the next screen, tell it to search the CD that came with your products for drivers, not your hard drive (or if you have the drivers on your hard drive, do this.)

It will search for a little and eventually it should find the right drivers from the disk (they are defienetely on there )
