Windows® Vista Errors
Do you encounter software-related problems on your Windows Vista-based system?
Though Windows Vista is a widely used operating system, but sometimes you might face certain software-related problems. The most common problem is software incompatibility. It might happen that when you upgrade your operating system to Windows Vista, then some of the programs do not run on your system. Another case might be that when you install a program on Windows Vista-based system, then it does not function at all or not in an expected manner. In this article, we will be discussing about some of the software-related problems that occur on Windows Vista-based system and ways to resolve them:
- Devices do not work on recently upgraded Windows Vista
- Sound card or DVD do not work
- Problems with creating a backup copy of files on DVD
Devices do not work on recently upgraded Windows Vista
There are chances that your printer or for that matter your scanner might not work properly on a recently upgraded system from earlier version of Windows® to Windows Vista. There can be several reasons behind this problem but the most prominent is that some of the drivers for the software might be missing from your computer, or are incompatible with the latest version of Windows Vista. In this case, you need to download the latest and updated drivers. Another solution can be to run the software in the compatibility mode.
Sound card or DVD do not work
Another problem can be that your sound card or the DVD player might not function. This problem usually occurs when you have recently upgraded to Windows Vista from an earlier version of Windows®. The cause of this problem can be that you have not performed a clean installation of the operating system and as a result the driver for DVD player or sound card is not compatible with Windows Vista.
There are chances that when you want to make a backup copy of Windows® installation on a DVD, the system might show a device error. The problem can be related to software mismatch between drivers and the burning utility being employed. Additionally, the DVD writer might be corrupted too. The solution to this problem is to use the default burning utility and re-install the drivers and then run a diagnostic utility of Windows® hard disk drive. Also, make sure that the file system is not corrupted.
