Hello all - First confession time. I am not a Mac user and know next to nothing about them (I think the old guy in the Mac vs PC ad is my twin brother!). One of my children has an iBook G4 so that's as close as I come.
My question is about that G4. My daughter recently bought a Lexmark X3430 All-in-One Printer / scanner / whatever. Of course she didn't read the box which says "For Windows OS". Lexmark does NOT have Mac drivers for their X3430 and the GIMP-print / gutenprint website does not list one either.
Does anyone out there have experience with this printer and know where I might be able to score a driver?
I've installed a legit copy of Windows XP, SP2. Nothing works, not my webcam, not my internet, not even the full resolution. The first time around that I did this, I had the DVD that came with my iMac, I installed the Windows drivers stuff off of it, and everything worked perfectly.
Can anyone point me in the direction of either a replacement for that DVD (.iso image or something?) or simply the required drivers that will let my iMac 8,1 connect to the web?
I want to erase my WinXP Boot Camp partition and make a new, slighly larger one with Vista (don't ask why, not exactly my choice). The problem is I am away from home at the moment and visiting my parents. All I took with me was a Vista Ultimate install DVD. Today I opened the Boot Camp Assistent and I discovered that I need the Leopard DVD (Mac OS X Install Disc 1 in my case). Unfortunately, I didn't take this with me.
Any suggestions about what to do? I can always wait until after the holidays and install everything the legit way. I can also bit torrent drivers but I am a little skeptical of pirated setup.exe files. For some reason Apple doesn't post download links on their website. Could someone maybe send me their legit setup.exe?
I recently purchased a 13 inch macbook pro and dual-booted windows 7 on boot camp.
The graphics driver on this computer is out of date. You should update the graphics driver on this computer before running Halo 2 for Windows Vista. You may experience problems running Halo 2 for Windows Vista if you choose to continue without updating.
I find the new trackpad drivers to be pretty horrible. It's so sensitive that it picks up all the minor movements.
It gets really frustrating because whenever I use my thumb to press down the trackpad, the trackpad picks up all those mini movements causing the cursor to shift a little everytime I press down the trackpad. This makes double clicking pretty hard.
I am trying to use my OLD HP scanjet 3300C with my imac 10.6.2. There are no drivers, system preference doesn't let me add the scanner, google search just confused me. Does anybody know how I can get this scanner working properly.
I just installed Windows 7 and have got as far as installing the graphics card drivers from ati's website (since the ones that windows update installs are almost always out of date). Now the card is being recognised as a Radeon HD 5750 but I know from other discussions best guess is It's actually a Mobility card inside the iMac.
So I got this eSATA card for my MacPro a while back and was able to install quite easily. I've done a fresh install on a new harddrive of my OS and no longer have the driver disc for the eSATA card. Does anyone know a method for ripping the drivers from my old hard drive? Or does anyone know where I can actually get the driver? I can't seem to locate it anywhere on Iomega's site.
I got my Aluminum MacBook 2.4 a few days ago and I have since then installed Windows XP SP3, I recall reading about being able to install new Nvidia graphics drivers to get even better performance. I tried to search it, but I couldnt find the process on how to install them.
So i installed windows 7 through bootcamp on my unibody 13"macbook. I managed to install windows 7 but when i run bootcamp 3.1 it says that i have to have bootcamp 3.0 first. SO i got 3.0 but when i try to run it it say its not compatible with 64 bit. What should i do?
I managed to install the video drivers from nvidia websites. I also installed all the drivers in the x64 Drivers directory of boot camp
I hava a imac 24, running leopard. I have a panasonic video recorder nv-gs10. I connect it to my mac with firewire to extract video, but mac does not reconogice it. cant i do. where can i find drivers?
How can I update my nvidia geforce 320M drivers, I downloaded the drivers from nvidia site, however, i get an error that says "this computer will not support this nvidia graphics solution" - I downloaded this file "NVIDIA Retail Mac Driver 256.01.00f03", I'm using LG 22" TV/Monitor with Res at 1680 x 1050 @ 60Hz which is causing regular text appear blurry.
the 1680x1050 seems to be the best Res setting but text is blurry ..
I tried different HDMI cables, same conclusion ...
I tried to ask this in the speaker thread but I think it got passed over, and someone else was curious as well:
If I get 5.1 speakers and use the optical-out port on the Mac, are there drivers for Windows that will support the optical out and let me do 5.1 as well? I'm curious as I intend to do some gaming on the box, and this greatly influences the speakers I would buy (2.1 vs 5.1)
I just got Vista Ultimate x64 running under Boot Camp (under 10.5.2) and want to improve the graphics. FYI - sees my 16 GB RAM, network, and sound card, but not any of the drives on my MacPro (any thoughts on that?) Can I install the NVidia Windows Vista 64x bit drivers while running Vista under Boot Camp?
I installed Windows 7 on a Mac Pro 09 and now I�m not sure if I really need the Boot Camp 3 drivers or not. It�s just installed for games and 3D Software. I don�t have an USB iSight, obviously, and don�t need the media function keys of the keyboard nor I use the Mighty Mouse. Also I don�t need iDisk access HFS+ access or Bonjour and what so ever. I mostly run OSX anyway.
So, would it work if I just install the Chipset drivers, Audio, Ethernet and graphics card drivers if I find them?
Or do the Boot Camp drivers have special stuff which I absolutely need?
I have a 2007 Macbook Pro and I just downloaded the new 3.1 boot camp drivers for it, so I can install them in Windows 7.
I've tried running the installer as Administrator but the installation procedure doesn't start and Windows comes up with a message saying that it didn't install correctly.
Whats the trick to getting things to work? I already had to rebuild the Windows 7 install ISO to get past the EFI issues, so I'm wondering whether my machine is not supported.
Presently, I'm using the drivers from my Snow Leopard install DVD which I had to decompress and install one by one. Everything but the track pad seems to be working OK, but it would be nice to get that last thing working.
I own a mac mini and i purchased an external dvd burner. When i first hooked it up it worked, after disconnecting then moving it, i tried hooking it back up and now it doesnt work. i searched for drivers but nothing. is there something im missing?
