Replacing I8042prt.sys And Kbdclass.sys Drivers

Dec 24, 2009

I upgraded my dell studio 1535 from Vista 64 bit to 7 professional 64-bit and now have problems with the keyboard (It's usually recognized, but keystrokes are often not recorded. Sometimes it doesn't work at all). USB devices work fine. I have my Vista OS under c:Windows.old so I would like to replace the 7 keyboard drivers (i8042prt.sys and kbdclass.sys) with the Vista drivers of the same names that are in c:window.oldwindowssystem32drivers Will this cause any problems? If not, how would I go about doing this?


Replacing SCSI Storage Drivers With IDE Or SATA Drivers?

May 18, 2012

Having issues with RAID0 array being detected by Windows7 Ultimate x64 as SCSI. Apparently these drivers are the 'default' drivers that install when the RAID array is initialized. There is no option at this point to install other drivers instead.Using DeviceManager, there is an option to 'update drivers', and regardless of the method chosen, even selecting the file for a previously-downloaded set of drivers, Windows7 always comes back with a message of "Windows has determined that the best drivers for your system are already installed". Considering that SCSI drivers are the OLDEST ones out there, and actual SCSI devices are becoming rarer and rarer, how is it that these drivers cannot be replaced with more current and more applicable drivers?

Replacing Vista - Drivers And System Programs

Dec 5, 2009

I have a brand new Toshiba laptop with Vista. It arrived just a few days before the Windows 7 release so I put the Toshiba aside and waited for the free Windows 7 upgrade disk, which just arrived.

Since I havenít used the Toshiba yet, thereís no data or personal programs to protect. I donít want to keep Vista, and of course I donít want to keep all the bloatware. Currently, Vista is on the C disk; there is a recovery or backup partition (D); and E is free for data. The Toshiba did not come with a Vista restore disk so I will burn recovery disks with Vista before I install Windows 7.

Like everyone, I want a fresh, clean sparkling brand-new install of Windows 7. I can follow the tutorials to boot from the Windows 7 upgrade disk, go to advanced tools and re-format the partition with Vista (i.e. C) and then install Windows 7. I should have no problem with registration or activation since Windows 7 will see Vista before itís deleted. Iím not 100% clear whether the recovery partition (D) will be maintained but it shouldnít matter much because Iíve got recovery disks Ö right?

My two questions:

1) Do I need to worry about losing my drivers in this scenario? Should I be taking a copy of all drivers ahead of time, and if so, is there somewhere (on the Toshiba) I can easily find them all? Or will they all be on the recovery disks I burn, should I need them?

2) What about the one or two Toshiba-specific programs I might want to keep, like Config-free and facial recognition software? Are they gone with the clean install, or can I also get them off the recovery disks (or recovery partition, if it still exists post-clean install)?

Is there anything else I need to know before I get started?? Iíd like to make this as painless as possible ..

Replacing A Re-spawned Oem Partition?

Jan 20, 2013

I've bought a second-handed NP-RC530-S06 with a dual boot (win7 and Hackintosh). As I wanted to restore the notebook to factory status, I inserted the DVD (attached to the package) and installed win7. In fact the recovery solution was not accessible by pushing F4; probably the previous owner deleted the OEM partition... By the way, after the OS installation, the PC was (obviously) missing the drivers and the samsung software. I know I could download the samsung stuff from the support page but my idea was to get back the OEM partition.Thus, using testdisk, I re-spawned the OEM partition getting the following:

- hard disk letter: D.
- partition type: Primary

is it possible to restore the link between the F4 and the OEM partition? What would be the procedure?

Replacing An Internal HD In A Desktop?

May 30, 2012

I have a three yr old hp Pavillion desktop. HD has totally conked out. Was going to just get a new one, but was wondering about the feasibility, and ease, of just replacing the HD. What am I letting myself In for ?

It looks like it will cost me around $ 100 to buy a new drive, so it will be a pricey experiment if it does not work out. Lost a lot of the paperwork, so am not fully sure as to what,is in it now. I looked inside, and apparently it is a Seagate 1 TB drive. 7200 rpm. SATA, 3 GB/sec

Has the dimensions of approx. width of 4 inches and depth of 6 inches. Is this what is called a 3-1/2 inch drive ? So, what do you think ? Worth a try ?

Will the electronics in this 3 yr old pc support a new hd with its built in new electronics O.K. ?

If I decide to try just replacing the drive, what should I buy ? What should I be aware of In regards to buying a hd for my old pc ? And, do they come pre-formatted ? If not how is this handled ?

Are there still master-slave jumpers that need to be set on the new hd ? After installation, do,I just run the "Restore" disk set of 3 disks to get Windows 7 on it again ? Do these restore disks that I created when I first got the pc have Windows 7 already on it ?

Not all that sharp with this stuff, but am a retired Engr., so reasonably comfortable with this kind of thing. Still, I would not really want to dump $100 if there are lots of potential pitfalls and caveats I am not considering.

Re-validate Windows 7 After Replacing Motherboard?

Oct 23, 2011

I have just replaced my motherboard after the original was fried by a lightning strike. I'm thrilled that the computer now is working (I'm not a computer geek so replacing the motherboard successfully was a major triumph for me). However, now I am getting messages that I cannot use Windows update since my Windows 7 does not pass the validation test. I went to the Microsoft site and downloaded software to test the validity of my operating system and (hopefully) reregister it, but was unable to. I have the product key for the software but the Microsoft program doesn't even ask for me to reenter it. How do I re-validate my operating system without having to purchase or reinstall the software?

New PC Build-replacing Boot Partition

Jan 8, 2011

I'm replacing my mobo/cpu with Sandy Bridge parts when they become available tomorrow, and I'm hoping to be able to move my data partition over without wiping it. I've currently got my drive partitioned up such that C is Windows 7 and basic programs, and the D drive includes my Steam games and other data. I know that a new mobo means reinstalling Windows, so will I be able to just wipe the C partition, keep the D partition intact, and then reinstall Windows 7 over the C partition on the new computer without issue, or will all the programs on D fail to recognize and function with the new Windows 7 install?

Upgrading Notebook - Adding New CPU Without Replacing Motherboard?

I noticed that the cpu usage when just browsing the internet is around 50%, when watching a movie around 70%, and when playing a video game or using a big program around 90%. The notebook has a relatively slow cpu speed (1.2GHz). Is it possible to put a new cpu in my notebook without replacing the motherboard as well? It also has 4gb of RAM which I am going to upgrade to 8gb soon. I was just looking for ways to upgrade my current pc.

Integrated Webcam Not Working After Replacing Screen (Samsung Laptop NP 300E5C)?

Nov 20, 2012

I recently got my laptop screen replaced. Although the integrated webcam is connected as the light comes on and there is an image, it is not clearAs soon as I realised the webcam was not working I took it back to the repair shop and they checked the connections and said everything is fine.The tech support of the company that sold me the screen said to reinstall the screen as maybe the wires are not connected properly. However, the repair shop guy said everything is connected and the webcam itself is connected. He said they can reinstall the screen but if there is nothing wrong on their part (i.e. they have connected it properly) I will have to pay.The repair shop guy said he thinks that the webcam captor got damaged when I broke the screen (sorry if captor is the wrong word, I am currently abroad and the repair shop guy speaks French).Do you have any advice? I do not want to get it reinstalled only to find everything is connected and have to pay again

Bios Clock Time Changes After Every Restart Even After Replacing Bios

Aug 23, 2011

I've got an Acer Model As5742 Laptop with an i5 480M processor and 8 GB of good Ram. I'm running Win 7 Pro 64 Bit. It's only about 5 months old and this started about a month ago. I have no other problems. IE: Blue Screens or Lockups or anything, just the Bios clock changes to a random date and time after every restart. I replaced the Bios battery twice and it only effects the chore of having to reset the time in Windows every time I boot.

I'm going to send it to Acer to be repaired within a week or two, but maybe it's not a bad timing mechanism in the motherboard and one of you people have a correct solution to it. Which will save me the trouble of sending it in for a motherboard replacement.

I do have all the drivers and bios updates installed. Oh yes I've ran about 15 different virus Etc. Malware scans with several different products and they all come back clean. I ran System File Checker SFC /scannow from the command prompt several times that also comes back OK.
