    Yo,

    I have a few exams tomorrow and I NEED one program on my calculator, but my does not recognize my TI-84 PLUS Calc, it gives a 'tududu' sound when I connect my calc and windows says my driver is not installed... Yeah I've searched for three hours and I am in a rush right now since I need to study as well!

    Please help! And the calc works on my dads pc, but does not have any programs and I ain't allowed to that on his pc T_T

    And so my problem has been solved ^^

    Have you tried multiple times to connect? I hope there isn't a problem with the hardware/cable...

    You could try alternative linker applications, of which there are several for Windows and Linux. Besides, if you're in a class that still uses the Ti-84 Plus, you don't NEED any app. I'm in Calculus 3, and I got by so far without a single app on my Ti-89 (not even CalcNotes)

    I thought you always had to wipe programmable calculators before entering an exam...

    Then again, most programmable calculators were banned from our exams (except for those who got it approved before the exam).

    Connect your calculator, go into Device Manager, find it in the list of USB devices, and uninstall it. Then re-install the TI program on your computer and connect your calculator.
