I recently upgraded my laptop to windows 7 ultimate (32 bit), and after doing so my laptop wouldn't connect to or find any networks. After troubleshooting and attempting to re-install the Network controller, the Video controller and the Ethernet controller , I keep getting a message saying that the driver wasn't successfully installed. I cannot find these drivers anywhere , and since I can't connect to the Internet , I can't download them to the laptop.
How can I test the battery of my Toshiba NB505? The battery charges on hookup for 4-10 seconds then stops. I lost the charger cord & ordered another. This 2nd cord has worked fine for about a year. Thought it might be the plug socket but then everything started working fine after we took the battery out & bottom off the netbook & put it back together. Worked fine for several weeks, then suddenly stopped again.
I clean installed Windows 7 on my HP Pavilion DV6-6C35DX laptop using these 2 guides: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation Clean Install Windows 7
I noticed when I was installing Windows 7, I never had a screen pop up (step 17) asking about my network location type. After Windows was installed, my laptop couldn't find any networks regardless if I tried plugging an ethernet cord from my modem into my laptop. When I click troubleshoot it says, "Install a driver for your network adapter". I click next it says, "Windows could not find a driver for your network adapter". I look in my Device Manager, I see under Other Devices it lists: Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device, SM Bus Controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller, Unknown Device, and Unknown Device all with yellow exclamation marks next to them.
My Googlefu skills told me that when clean installing windows it only installs generic drivers, and I need to install the drivers on my motherboard disk. The problem is my laptop didn't come with any such disk. I tried going on HP's website on another computer, and burning all the network drivers onto a blank DVD ( can't use a USB since those drivers are not working). When I installed them nothing really happened.
ive reinstalled Windows 7 Premium, but i can't find wirelless connection. So when i go to Computer/Device manager i can see That i missing some drivers for Network Controller and PCI Simple communications controllers. So i supose this is it what i need to be able to acess wireless connections. So ive searched for those drivers like a 2 hours but couldnt find it on internet.like it used to be! Ive changed resolution to max , but still resolution is kinda of cheap , like to much brightness , i dunno it just seems that is not like it used to be before! Ive googled about this and maybe im missing video drivers?
I am trying to get my wife's new computer up and running without any BSOD or program failures. Note that the system was not initially set up to capture the dmp files so all the earliest ones are missing. I presented the initial problems to the original seller who recommended sticking with MSE and uninstalling Norton 360 and I did that. Another forum suggested that Virtual Memory was the problem and I disabled and restored VM. Still having multiple crashes and I am hoping that I can get real help here. I do note that all the crashes have ntoskrnl.exe in the driver stack although sometimes alone and sometimes with other drivers.[CODE]
I just recently contracted a virus and opted to reformat 2 of my 3 hard drives (the 3rd was used to store documents and backups form the other 2) After reformat/install everything seemed fine until I proceeded to re-install several of my games.
Borderlands installed and proceeded to give me an error that one of the physX .dlls was missing. I managed to find the dll and get it re-installed but then another physXextensions.dll was missing which I was not able to fix, but the game itself works and plays fine.
Then I re-installed Alpha Protocol (worked fine) proceeded to install the 1.1 update and found a missing nxcooking.dll was missing (fixed and then found another)
At this point I found 2 different programs that scanned my registry and dlls and each found approximately 150 errors. Therefore I am planning to reformat all 3 drives and re-install again
ack when I first set up my system I used a tutorial on this forum that showed how to install the OS on one drive and everything else on the other. The setup required changing the registry settings in audit mode during the initial OS install. I am looking for this tutorial but now can't find it. I even posted in this post, but even those are missing so I can't just trace my posts. I'm confused as to why it is missing and am hoping anybody could lead me back to it.
So I tried installing Windows on my new machine and did waht seemed to be the recommended thing and plugged in only my SSD into the Sata port, leaving my other drives unplugged until after the installation. Everything went fine and I was able to get Windows 7 up, drivers were installing and everything was peachy, but Then I plugged in my other drives, and when I did so with the computer running Windows immediately recognized them and I could access them, as well as do whatever I wanted. However when I restarted I got the message BOOTMGR is missing.
Now, you may be thinking that this is a simple issue of it trying to load from one of those other HDDs, just set the boot order in the BIOS blah blah. But its not. I set the boot order in the BIOS to use the SSD, I set the SSD to the top of the list within the HDDS priority order and still nothing. I then took it a step further and instead of selecting the order manually told it to boot from the SSD flat out, boot from this drive and the same error message came up. I already did the boot from Windows disc, startup repair thing - didn't work.
I have just installed a new P5G41T-M LX Series motherboard and two DDR3 x 2GB replacing DDR2. During startup a message says BOOTMGR is missing, press Ctrl Alt Delete to restart, on restart the same message is repeated.
I bought a new puter; it had windows 8. I downgraded and loaded on a clean start windows 7 (I think that's how techies refer to it "clean Start" ) In the process my puter now says no wireless hardware or driver detected. downloadable drivers or how well a stick of dynamight may work.
I was doing some printing and it was fine. Right in the middle of a multiple page print job I got a printer error. Troubleshooter indicted a HP Photosmart C310 driver was missing. I went to Device Manager and every entry under Other Devices was missing their drivers. The C310 printer, the SM Bus Controller and the Ethernet Controller. Windows Update was unable to find and install any drivers. Why all the Other Device components lost their drivers at the same time?

My laptop came with windows 7 installed. It crashed I guess because of a virus. It is all cleaned but I did not get a windows 7 disc or back it up. I cannot get online or on the computer. How do I get the installation disc?
I have come up against an issue with XP mode which loads XP SP3.The Toshiba drivers work under SP3. but the INSTALLER does not!!It will install on any XP2 machine, but not the XP3 Virtual machine withing XP Mode.How can I 'roll back' XP SP3 that Microsoft sold me with windows 7 to XP2 status - there is no UPGRADE folder or anything similar so must be an integrated build??I have loads of stuff painstaking loaded on the XPE now so dont really want to, nor am in confident in how to, do another Virtual machine with XP SP2 even if I knew where to get hold of a copy without spending more money.
