How To Configure Legacy Devices In Windows 7?

There is a collection of drivers available in Windows 7 driver store for legacy devices like old printer, modems, scanners, infrared ports, PCMCIA Controller and other oddball devices that are not compatible with Plug and Play connections. At the same time, Windows never automatically set up such devices. Therefore, you can’t replace any driver with a newer, you have to search and download the most recent hardware drivers. Then use Add Hardware wizard to complete the hardware setup process. We have given the steps in detail.
•    If you get any downloadable driver package or a CD that is available with the device, you have to use the Setup program and run it. Running this option will place the driver in your Hard Drive and simplify installation steps ahead.

•    You have to connect the new hardware to your PC, but if it is any internal devices like add-in-card, turn off the computer, connect the device to your computer and restart the PC.
•    Now, you have to open Device Manager and select any item in the list of installed devices. After that, add Legacy Hardware on the Action menu.
•    Here you can click Next to skip past the Welcome screen.
•    From the next wizard, you can choose the way to install the selected device.
1.    If you use printers, network cards, modem and other devices, they will be detected automatically. At the same time, you can choose Search for And Install the Hardware Automatically. It is recommended by default.
2.    After you click Next, the wizard will quickly run a detection module that searches for anything on its list of non-plug and play devices. If it will find the new device, the drivers will be installed automatically.
3.    If the wizard is not able to find the new hardware, you will have to click Next in order to check for the Hardware manually.
4.    Moreover, if you have any driver on the disc, skip the detection process and choose Install The Hardware That I Manually Select From A List (Advanced) and then click Next.

New Micro battery, power packed for high performance

For a size of a few millimetres, the new micro-batteries are powerful enough to jump start a car battery and then quickly charge the cell phone. Researchers from the University of Illinois have developed the micro batteries which can be used to drive compact electronic devices and new applications for radio communications. The micro batteries are so good that they can even out power the super capacitors. The results were published in ‘Nature Communications’ in the April 16 issue. The micro batteries have energy and power and with the researchers tweaking the structure of the micro batteries a little bit, its use can be for wide range applications. The high performance of the micro battery is based on its 3-dimensional micro-structure. Based on the design of fast charging cathode by Professor Paul Braun’s group, researchers developed the matching anode and integrated it with the fast charging cathode at a micro-scale and made a complete battery with high performance. These batteries cou
