Incompatible Display Adapter Has Been Disabled

Dec 30, 2007

Setup: New Vista PC (bargain-rack special - a bare-bones office machine with Vista Home Basic) has a built-in VGA adapter. I want to do the two-monitor setup, so I plugged in my ATI video card as the second video driver. Problem: When I boot the machine, I get the following error: Incompatible display adapter has been disabled. At least one display adapter on the system has been disabled because its driver is not compatible with the driver for the VGA adapter.

What I find odd, though perhaps it is not odd to you, is that the internal driver was the one disabled - the ATI card is now defaulted as the main (and only enabled) driver. In Control Panel, it does not say that the drivers or controllers are disabled, but instead that there are problems. Clicking on Troubleshoot does nothing at all.

PS2 Controller Adapter: Vista Ultimate X64 It Doesn’t Recognize It

I used to use my SUPER BOX4 (Ps2 controller to PC adapter) for when I had XP and it worked like a charm. Now with installing Vista Ultimate X64 it doesn’t recognize it.
Is there a compatible driver for it (which I doubt) or is there an alternative adapter?

Linksys Wireless G USB Adapter: Lose Internet And USB Adapter Itself

Feb 9, 2009

I have a issue with my Linksys wireless USB adapter. I am trying to use it with Vista Home Premium. After installing software... I plug the adapter in (like directions say) and windows update goes to work. It updates the driver, installs correctly, I then connect to my home network and all is good. My prob is for some reason I lose internet and the USB adapter itself. One time I switched users and lost all. I have tried uninstalling adapter and tried reinstalling by pointing to my D drive (install CD) in hopes of using the driver that's on the installation CD. as soon as it saw everything.. windows update once again gave me the same buggy driver. I have tried to install with UAC disabled... no luck... the Linksys website/support for drivers has the same updated driver. I tried to use an older one but Windows keeps forcing this updated one down my

Disabled Network Adapter And Freeze Up

May 10, 2008

My computer will load up normally the way until it reaches the screen with the green bar and black screen. The green bar will cycle through about two to three times, but then it stops moving. It moves forward just a little bit every 5 minutes though, so if I leave it like that for about 40 minutes then Vista will be able to boot to my desktop. And when I try to restart my computer, it just stays at the 'Shutting Down" screen forever. The longest I've let the shutting down screen just stay there was 20 minutes. I had to cut the power. Anything that has to do with networking seems to make my computer freeze up. I can start up in Safe Mode but not Safe Mode with Networking. And when I waited the 40 minutes start my comp up, the Vista said the the "Network cable is unplugged", but it wasn't.

Display Adapter Not Showing In Device Manager

Mar 23, 2009

I just bought an EVGA nForce 730i mobo with onboard GeForce 9300 graphics card. I installed vista ultimate 32 bit and the first thing I did was install all the drivers from the disk that came with the motherboard. For some reason I can't find my display adapter in my device manager list and I don't think the driver from the mobo disk is installing properly but I can't check that because I don't see the adapter in the device manager list. Any idea on how I can fix this?

Added A Second Monitor To The GeForce 7100 GS Using A DVI-VGA Adapter And For The Life Of Me Cannot Get It To Display Anything, The Monitor Is Just In Sleep Mode

Apr 23, 2010

I added a second monitor to the GeForce 7100 GS using a DVI-VGA adapter and for the life of me cannot get it to display anything, the monitor is just in sleep mode. I've got the latest driver, Windows is up to date, checked the cables, tried another adapter, tried everything but, still nothing. The second monitor shows up in the device manager and in the Nvidia control panel. It's enabled and set to extend desktops. It seems the system knows it's there because I can move the mouse over, but cannot see anything. The power light on the second monitor just flashes. I've swapped monitors over, to make sure there's not a problem with the display and it's fine. When I do that, the main monitor is then plugged in to the DVI adapter and then that one goes to sleep. Just seems whichever monitor is plugged in to the DVI-VGA adapter just doesn't want to work........

When i upgraded my windows xp to vista about 5 days ago it somehow screwed up my computer. My graphics are so bad that i can't play simple games and i know that my graphics card used to work perfectly. I just need to know if it is vista that has changed my graphics card and if it did how can i fix it. Also for Hardware Acceleration, i can not turn it on because i do not have the troubleshoot option in my display settings. My nero will not burn any dvd disc's due to that.

Wireless Adapter Keeps Disconnecting

Mar 23, 2008

I recenctly bought a new machine that has Vista Basic installed on it. I installed the latest drivers for my Netgear wireless adapter which are supposed to be Vista compatible. However, although I can get connected, I often have to mess around with the networking settings first and then the connection will only last around 15 minutes before the adapters led stops flashing. I then have to reboot to get a connection again. I tried the adapter back n my old XP machine and it is fine. As soon as the XP machine boots, the led indicator starts flashing and it doesn't stop until you shut down. With the Vista machine, the adapter often doesn't start flashing until you actually connect and then it will just stop after a short while. I've been messing around with this for weeks now and got nowhere. I would have suspected the adapter drivers, but it seems as though there are a lot of other people with the same problem on different adapters.

Wireless Will Not Work With Any Adapter

Jul 2, 2008

I have a compaq presario desktop that I am trying to connect to a dlink wireless system. I have tried trendnet, linksys, and now Dlink usb wireless adapters but none will connect. They show up in the device manager as fine and dandy but will not enable. I am now trying the dlink WUA 1340 and downloaded the drivers from the dlink website.

I have also did a netsh wlan show settings and it says the autoconfig is disabled. Not sure if it should be enabled and have yet to find out how to enable it on this desktop. I have already tried the to do set autoconfig enabled=yes interface="?" as per technet instructions but just says wlansvc is not running. I am very frustrated and have had to drag the dlink router and dsl to telus to my computer so I can hook up by ethernet.

I have ran the gammut on this as I have even went through all the usb plugs and all are working and detect the wireless device. I have removed everything a few times and reinstalled without the dlink software etc. etc. etc.

Wireless Adapter Not Enable

Apr 9, 2009

I went to a wired connection instead of wireless, and then decided to go back to wired. Since my wireless connection is through a linksys WUSB600N and it has known problems with skipping when playing games like World of Warcraft I turned off WLAN and had disabled my wireless adapter, then installed another program to run the connection (Which I had done previously though the last time I didn't turn off WLAN or disable my adapter). Then I went to enable the adapater and it wouldn't enable. I also turned back on WLAN and restarted. It still won't work. At this point nothing I do will enable my wireless adapater. It shows it is enabling but then it just keeps saying disabled. The light on the WUSB600N doesn't even turn on when I plug it in now, and it just worked less then 24 hours ago.

Wireless USB Adapter Not Working

Oct 18, 2007

I've recently installed Vista Business on a new Dell PC. I've had problems installing the wireless adapter but in the end, Vista itself installed drivers for it though now the utility provided with the adapter doesn't work at all. The connection works fine until you try and download large files/use more bandwidth. For example; using a download manager like Flashget to download several files. From then it dwindles straight to 0kbps and then the whole connection dies, disconnects and the router is no longer available, according to Vista and yet the router is running fine with other computers on the network going strong. I've tried installing, updating, reinstalling drivers, altering the power settings and other internet settings to no avail.

PC Won't Boot After Installing PCI Wireless Adapter

Mar 16, 2009

I am new to Vista and my o/s is telling me I have Vista Home Premium (64 bit Operating System).

My PC is a Packard Bell iPower X9810. Motherboard is MS-7380

I wanted to insert a wireless PCI adapter into one of the vacant slots in my machine.

I purchased an Edimax wireless 802.11n 32 bit PCI adapter (model = EW-7728in).

I thought, after reading countless reviews this was going to be easy

So I popped it in and switched my machine back on (holding my breath). I saw the initial Packard Bell splash screen then was presented with a black empty screen with a flashing cursor in the top left hand corner

At this point I was rather concerned because I could hear my machine making a whiring noise (it didn't sound good).

After administering some smelling salts I proceeded to re-start crossing my fingers and it happened again. On the 3rd attempt I eventually got a sort of recovery screen that gave me one of two options 1) attempt a repair or 2) continue trying to load windows. I selected the first option and again held my breath.

After roughly 10 mins it had performed a system restore and I had turned back the clock to a previously known good state.

For the life of me I cannot understand why this happened. The manual that came with the card said to pop the adapter in the slot > boot up > run CD-ROM and hey presto but that did not happen.

When I looked at the mobo inside the machine the 2 PCI slots are ever so slightly offset and don't align tru with the covers you ping off the back of the tower. However, I must advise that the adapter went in without much of a struggle but must of " slightly " been on the wonk as I have already said the slots are not 100% in line with were the aerials stick out the back.

I'm scared to death now of breaking my machine and don't know what to do? The Edimax website says this is compatible with my 64 bit Vista so what gives?

Automatically Get New IP Settings For The Network Adapter

Mar 23, 2008

Everytime I reboot the laptop I loose the ability to connect to the internet although the laptop confirms a connection to the wireless network router.I click "Diagnose this connection" and choose "Automatically get new IP Settings for the network adapter" I have internet connectivity restored.

The laptop is an HP dv6755ca, less then one week old, and has been checked to be sure all drivers and updates have been installed. I have run anti-virus and checked for malware/spyware. The network setup is 1. PC connected via ethernet, 1. wireless laptop and 1. smc8014w-g wireless gateway.

Although the setup was walked through with me by the technician (over the phone) I'm not yet ruling out a faulty set-up in the site [except that I have had no issues with the wired connection].

Automatically Get New TCP/IP Settings On Wifi Adapter?

Mar 23, 2008

How do I force Vista to do what it should be doing anyway, i.e. get new TCP/IP settings when it connects to a new access point (with different SSID, WEP key, channel no) Vista (HP) certainly does not do it automatically... ipconfig /all shows IP address of previous access point... and previous gateway/DNS. "Repair" usually resolves the issue but it shouldn't be necessary. DHCP client is on; IPv6 is off; all current updates applied. Access point that Vista will not connect to properly is a Netgear WPN824 Firmware V2.0.15_1.0.11; DHCP on LAN Port ON (i.e. is LAN DHCP server)

USB To Playstation 2 Adapter: Opened Up X-plane And Tested It Out And Nothing

Feb 12, 2010

Today i recieved a USB to Playstation 2 Adapter that i ordered from eBay, so i ran upstairs, plugged it in and checked game controllers to make sure it was there, and it was. So i plugged in my Logitech Cordless Action controller and the lights flashed and the receiver flashed so i assumed it was connected. Opened up X-plane and tested it out and nothing, did a bit of googleing and found a driver/program for the adapter, installed it and still nothing. Im wondering if it is because the controller i am using is wireless, but if it worked on my Playstation then it should work with this adapter, right? I hope this can be sorted as the Vista Forum has sorted lots of my problems out before.
