Ok, so my nspire is frozen on a program editing screen. I have the TI-84 faceplate in. I've tried taking out the batteries, leaving them out for 24 hours, resetting it on the switch on the back... nothing works! It won't let me press any buttons either. Help please!

I had the same problem, but I found out how to fix it. There are 2 ways:

1) Turn on your calc in 84+ mode. Using a clip, press the reset button behind your calc. A message will appear asking whether you confirm the reset or not. Say yes. Your calc should then work. Note that this method erases everything (in RAM and ROM) in your 84+ mode. If you want back the apps that were already loaded on your calc by default, try the second method.

2) Put in your normal NSpire keyboard and turn the calc on. Connect it to PC and reinstall it's OS (you can find a copy of the latest version on TI's website). You can then use your 84+ mode again. Note that this second method deletes all RAM and ROM too, but then reinstalls the default apps. This method is also longer, so if you don't need the default apps, use the first one.

I have the 1.7 version of the OS, so if you have a different one, the first method might not work.

I am using Vista, and it's asking me to get the device drivers, I've looked all over the internet and can't find any. Any suggestions?

If you bought the NSpire, then does it have an installation CD or what? If it does, see if it's even compatible with Vista. If there was no cd, try education.ti.com.

Ok, thanks to both of you, but it's not that my calculator isn't compatible with Vista, it's that i don't have the CD. The CD contains the drivers, and i bought mine used, so no CD. And by the way, TI is smart enough to not put the f-ing drivers on their website! So I have no idea what to do.

Downlaod the NSpire OS:
Non-CAS: http://education.ti.com/educationportal/do...p;paneId=6001#1
CAS: http://education.ti.com/educationportal/do...p;paneId=6002#1

Then install this:
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/si...mputerlink.html

It contains the PC program with the NSpire drivers.
After installing it, connect the NSpire (it should automatically install the driver), click on the Tools menu, then on Install OS. Choose the OS you've downloaded. Then wait. The OS should now be re-installed.
