How To Force Install A Driver Bypassing The Compatibility ?
Jun 14, 2009
yes the service is disabled. and yes i have tried disabling through group policy.
im trying to install intellitype drivers 6.20 since anything more recent blocks hotkeys through winamp for my keyboard model. and yes these drivers worked "PERFECTLY" fine despite microsoft being dumb about this probably trying to force people to use there newer drivers.
so in short anyone know how to fully disable the compatability assistant which is completly blockign the install of this driver. i suppose i cna install through INFs but that wont install the software part of the driver i believe which enables the few media keys which i enjoy using while in full screen apps.
how I can force install AMD 11.6 Mobility drivers for an unsupported card? AMD's normal installers haven't been updated for my card (6750M) and as a result the installer just skips the driver install part. Can I just use the Windows driver installer and manually locate the driver files? Or is there some stuff that I have to fiddle with in the installer files?
An excellent printer/fax/scanner in my office cannot work from Win7, according to itself.No updated Win7 driver seems to be available for my HP Color LaserJet 2840.I've seen it work before, but do not know how to do it.How can I force Win7 to use an XP driver (in the machine that's connected to the printer) over the network?
just built a Supermicro system dual Xeon 604 cpu's used my video card (pci) in one of my pci x slots have tried many settings both in bios and slot configuration but my pc will just randomly re boot with no warning, every now and then I will see the BSOD that will say time out trying to load display driver, I see many people having similar issues with this card. time for a new card? running win 7 64 bit ran fine on my SOYO board that is now dead with same OS. no one has a possible solution? well for me it's not worth the aggravation. going to get an ATI dual monitor1 gig and see how that runs. figure with all the issues so many are having it must be a g force/windows/Intel incompatibility issue
I recently haven't been able to boot my windows 7. I get sfsync02.sys error everytime. Do you guys know of any bootable software able to remove that driver before startup? I tried parangon safety suite 9 but it would not recognize my HDD .
I am attempting a reinstall on a Toshiba satellite C655, my problem is the DVD/CD player is broken, and when I hook up an external USB DVD player and set boot options to USB, it won't recognize it and bypasses to start up screen. Am I missing something in BIOS?
My "turn windows features on and off" box is blank. this is a known error with many 'solutions' that have not worked in my case. I've reinstalled Windows 7 prof. x64 twice (for a total of 3 installs). somewhere along the line of installing my standard programs 9all of which work, no issues, ect.) my "turn windows features on and off" box will go blank. I tried figuring out what program triggered this behavior by reinstalling and restarting after every program installed and checking the box. it was a different program that triggered the event from reinstall 1 to reinstall 2. so, that's telling me it's not a specific program that's triggering it. anyway, I don't have 2 hours to reinstall windows and my programs every night, so I'd like to know if there is a workaround (ie registry entries) that I can edit to enable features and programs. from my understanding of how "turn windows features on and off" works, it must only be changing a registry entry or editing a config file that tells the OS not to load those features, as in the documentation, it states that the programs and features are not uninstalled, they're just disabled.
i want to install softwares where i can use my webcam such as skype or yahoo messenger.however i can not do that due to my exgirlfriend. she forgot her admin password but i am using the other account thats not the admin. this computer has no cd drive.
(for new users to windows 7 - old hands will know this already of course).
If you are the normal / only user of a machine / the user who uses it most you can STILL keep your password but you can enable the Auto logon which will bypass the initial User logon screen where you have to enter a password.
Log On Automatically at Startup
1) Menu ==> Run (or press Windows + R keys)
2) enter control userpassword2
3) click advanced
4) unclick users have to enter a password box
5) enter your user name and password at the box
(You can go the other way too -- click advanced and you can enforce users to press CTRL ALT DEL to logon).
You can still lock the computer of course etc where your password needs to be entered etc - nothing changes there - only the logon.
This can be fine if you need some services to start after you've logged on and you need to RDP remotely after your machine is re-booted.
I'm trying to uninstall a program (GTA4/Grand Theft Auto game), but the setup for this game does not work on Windows 7.
To make the setup work we need to edit the compatibility for it.
It's the same problem to install the game, the same error "incompatible with %P". The solution to install it's the compatibility mode.
But I don't know how to change the compatibility to the uninstall setup. The setup.exe, I don't know where it is, when I click to uninstall the system always generate a setup.exe on a temp folder like:
I am running Vista SP1 32 bit version on my computer now. I have a Windows 7 X86 version I am trying to install. When I go to install it gets to the Compatibility part of the install, put up a blank box with the message that the info has been saved to my desktop. The only button to click is close. If i do that 7 starts over. The info saved on my desktop it blank also. Nothing. I also can't run the windows 7 Compatibility advisor from Microsoft when you download it. Any ideas??
I have two computers that are running Win XP Home and one that is running Win Xp Media Center Edition. Will I have any problems upgrading the Win Xp Media Center Edition?
Currently I'm trying to upgrade the system with Win Xp Home. It has a Gigabyte AMD AM2 Socket (GA-M57 SLI-S4) motherboard, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 6000+, 4 GB of ram and a Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS sound-card.
I ran the windows 7 upgrade adviser on the computer and then someone suggest I also run the vista upgrade adviser as well. On both it is telling me that there is a problem with "Windows Aero Support". I've seen lots of posts stating it will run on their video card but I have not seen anything on mine and need to know if I can upgrade to Win 7 Home Premium without a problem. My video card is a NVidia Geforce 7900 GTX. Does anyone know if that card will work with Win 7?
Then also it is telling me that my D-Link DWA-130 Wireless USB adapter is a problem. I went to their website and they have Vista drivers but not Win 7. Someone suggested not downloading the D-Link drivers but downloading the vista drivers and that it would work. I have little knowledge regarding Win 7 and therefore didn't know if this was good advice or bad advice on downloading the vista drivers. Is anyone here using this wireless adapter successfully with Win 7?
Last it mentions that it is not compatible with the Creative Game Port. I don't know if this is something that is downloaded with my Gigaabyte motherboard recovery disc. I don't think it was something I installed but not sure. AS far as I know it is not something I'm using so it doesn't matter if it isn't compatible (at least I think it's not). I didn't know if anyone knew about this.
I'm hoping anyone that has experience with any of this hardware will let me know if it is compatible with Win 7 before I upgrade it only to find it is compatible to upgrade.
I run a Windows Server 2008 R2 machine that amongst other things, acts as a media store/server. I recently got a Windows Phone 7 handset that can only synchronise content via Zune (ridiculous, I know), but Zune refuses to istall on Server 2008 R2, saying it can only be installed on XP and Windows 7.I have installed most of the Win 7 components missing from Server 2008 R2 so I'm not worried about compatibility, I just want to know, how can I force install an application to an OS that it is not 'allowed' to be installed on.If I can't get Zune onto the Server, I'm effectively barred from transfering music and video to my phone.
So thing is my display driver - Standard VGA Graphics Adapter.I have a Panasonic CF-51ECCDBBM Model.So here is what happened---
I was a frequent user of the OS - Windows XP and my driver worked fine, I could play many low quality and few high quality games. But I tend to get infected when I was on XP. So I switched to a new OS - Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit (6.1, Build 7601) it automatically installed a the current driver I have as of now. When I try to play games on it, they will not work. When I try to play the Windows 7 Card game it lags terribly. I have done things such as the Windows Experience Index, Updating my driver via device manager, dxdiag, and several blogs and help sites. If possible can anyone help me or reccommend drivers that are compatible with my current OS and is substantially better than the piece of crap driver I have now?
Recently posted a threaded regarding my chassis and its audio jack, but what I feel now that problem is with sound driver as I am using its AC'97 port first time and its on windows 7searching and downloading s/w from tomorrow and trying to install and use and I only get success with sigmatel and success is limited to hear veered sounds , it sounds like when someone speaks by drowning head into deep water?
I created a partition and installed XP on it and the game installs correctly (installation wouldn't even start on Win7) and it runs. However, the drivers I got when I bought the laptop are only compatible with Win7 (video drivers, wifi/lan drivers, the audio driver works fine on XP however).Because of this driver problem, I have no graphics driver to run the game (I know it works because I can start the game and hear the audio). I also couldn't connect to the internet to find and update drivers on that specific machine.
So I searched for them on another computer but after hours of searching, downloading and transferring the files to my Acer, failed to find any compatible with XP.The Acer website which I downloaded these drivers from mentions they work on XP in the description but they wouldn't install, giving the error 'not support on this operating system' or similar.FYI the hardware for the drivers I needed were: - Lite-on Wireless LAN 3rd WiFi BGN Atheros HB97 (OR Broadcom LAN BCM57780 for ethernet connection)- Intel VGA Chip UMAHas

After I forced shut down my netbook by hitting the power button, I get the message force shut or cancel whenever I shut down. Is there anything I can do to turn the message screen off? I had to power off when my netbook hanged. Since then the force shutdown or cancel message always blink when i shut down
I disassembled my computer, carried it in my luggage and reassembled it. The only thing changed is the case. Since reassembling it, Windows (7 ultimate 64-bit) will not recognize either of my 2 DVD-RW's. At boot, my bios offers them as boot options, and with the Win7 disk in the one, it will boot from it if selected. However, once within the Win7 environment...nothing. Not even any yellow exclamation marks in device driver. I have tried to force installation, tried installing a legacy device, everything I can think of. how I can force Win7 to search for and find my DVD-RW's?
