Need computer help, drivers wont install

I need some super computer help, can't find much info on the internet.

I've bought 3 items (digital camera, webcam,mp3 player) and none will install the drivers and my computer wont see them. No matter way i try the drivers wont install, i always have some problem come up. The other software will install but just not the drivers. For the camera i get some error code number and for the mp3 player, it says "access denied" when it tries install but give no reason why. No matter if i uninstall, reinstall, got to other sites or what, it wont work. It seems my computer has a problem with drivers and recognizing devices on the computer. If i plug the camera in nothing shows up. No device icon in the tool bar at the bottom. Like its just not there.

I've gone to the Device Manager in windows and i can make them appear under there, but says no drivers installed. But thats it. Nothing will show up. Also the mps player when plugged in, it'll have an usb device plugged in. But the computer wont recognizing what it is. I have all the service packs for windows xp. Don't know what the problem would be. I've installed other drivers and such before. But now it seems nothing is working.The usb ports work sonce i have things hooked up now.

Have you approached your brother in law about this problem yet? If not I would advise you not too. His wife will just get pissed that you are not involving her in the issue, and you will end up getting the blame.

Re: Need computer help, drivers wont install

Couple of things come to mind right off that are not specific to you but may help

1. are you certain you are logged in with an administrator equivalent account? Don't think, double check and be sure.

2. Too many USB devices can cause power issues on some computers. Unplug all USB devices (except mouse and keyboard) and then try your other devices ONE at at time. If you can figure out which USB hub is which, try one device on one without anything else on it. Or buy a powered USB hub and try a device on that.

What brands are the Camera, mp3 player and web cam? If there were instructions read them, I know from the past that sometimes you need to install the drivers, etc. directly from a disc that came with said product. Like it will say to plug said item in and when it ask if you want to install said item choose NO. Then insert installation CD and once that starts install said item from the CD. I guess if your computer is old you may need a bios update to.
