Hi

I'm having trouble when connecting up my Numark Total Control to my Asus eee 901. XP fails to fully install the drivers and so it doesn't work. I get a code 28 message. The Total Control does not come with drivers so it relies a lot on windows working perfectly.

I have an nlite version of XP on my machine.
(sorry cannot remember what was removed, but I'm pretty sure I followed something like this:

http://wiki.eeeuser.com/howto:nlitexp or http://forum.eeeuser.com/viewtopic.php?id=40609).

I think that may be why it cannot detect it. Does anyone know of a way of getting XP to recognise the total control?
If not, what parts of XP must I have removed to have caused this and is there a way of getting them back?

Ideally I don't want to have to re-install windows as I like how it is set up now and don't really want to go through all the hassle but if I have to then what components do I really need to keep to ensure the Total control will have the drivers and install?

I can't think what else I need to put to help you but if you need any more details then please let me know.

Thanks

ps I have tried using the original xp disc, putting it in my external usb dvd drive while it searches for the driver but don't think my drive is the best.

Assuming you are referring to this device ( http://www.numark.com/totalcontrol ), no drivers are needed. It relies on the standard USB drivers and the USB port for power.

Has the device worked previously on this PC? Try removing/deleting the USB controllers in Device Manager and rebooting. Test the controller on another PC. If it works on another PC, then I'd suspect a faulty USB controller or the USB controller isn't supplying enough power.

Hi

thanks for the help so far, it's been really useful.

Yes, I am referring to that device and I have a feeling that you may be right with the faulty usb controller or lack of power. I don't think i've tried the controller on the netbook before but i have used it (and continue to do so) on my desktop pc and it works fine.

I tried the thing in device manager but that didn't help any as it gave me the exact same result.

I have not had any issues with other usb devices on the netbook, and these include flash drives, mice, external hard drives and an ESI Maya44 (although that has it's own driver).

Any ideas what I can do next or what next to look at? How would I sort a faulty USB or even alter the power supplied? Also, how would I update the motherboard?, not sure how to use .ROMs.

ps, i have tried the Numark Total control with it's own power supply plugged in and still no result.

Thanks again
