my t-mobile dongle wont install on my Compaq computer

Hello


my problem is simple i have brought a t-moble dongle the other day but it wont let me install the software on my computer, when i insert the dongle the box flashes up for barly 1 second and then goes again and nothing is displayed on the "my Computer" section

i have tried a different dongle and had the same problem but have tried my dongle on thier computer and works fine.

my computer is a Compaq on Windows Vista

Please Help!!!!

Have you tried finding your dongle as a drive listed in Computer then manually starting the installation software?

Have you tried running it as administrator and then installing it.

what happens if you navigate to the drive on the dongle and run setup normally?

do you have any other 3G dongle software already installed on the machine?
