Can't Install Dell Studio 1458 Laptop Video Card Driver On Win 8.1 Enterprise X64
Apr 16, 2014
I have the Dell Studio 1458 and i have Windows 8.1 Enterprise x64, When I try to install the video card which is: ATI Readeon Mobility HD 5400. I got Errors that say "there was an error when trying to install driver" (on devmgmt.msc).
Where can i find the correct drivers this version?
I recently updated my Studio 1458 Notebook from 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate to Windows 8 Pro. It is a 2.4GHz Intel Core i5-520M, 8 GB Shared Dual Channel DDR3 at 1066 MHz RAM, 512 MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4530 Video Card, 500 GB SATA @7200 RPM HDD.
Since upgrading, I have had no control over the Sleep function. I have changed all settings I can find on CONTROL PANEL<POWER OPTIONS, and still the system goes to "Sleep Mode" if I do not touch it for a few minutes. It even went to Sleep DURING the Windows 8 installation, which made it take longer than expected.
I see the write-up on how to make a password reset disk on a USB flash memory stick. But is there a way to make a password reset disk on a CD?
WHAT I DID: 1. Inserted a blank CD in the optical drive. 2. Opened control panel and clicked "User Accounts". But in the left panel there is no option "Create a password reset disk". All I see are: Control Panel HomeManage your credentialsManage your file encryption certificatesConfigure advanced user profile propertiesChange my environment variables.
Do I HAVE TO insert a USB stick to see the password reset option? (I don't have a spare USB stick to test with)
Upgrading from Windows 8 ProWMC on a Dell Studio 1535 laptop. It ran for a couple of hours and was in the 'a few more things' stage when it decided to fail and roll everything back.
Now that it's back where I started, where do I start looking to try to find out what happened? I'm hoping it put some log files somewhere.
My first guess is that it's third-party drivers, will start by looking at those. There are several things which are old but still were working with Windows 8; I suppose one or more of these might not be compatible?
I have a Dell Studio XPS 9000 running Windows 7 home premium 64bit and a USB 3 card installed. I want to upgrade it to Windows 8.1. I also have an HP laptop Envy dv6 running Windows 8.1 USB 3 compatible. I also have an Intel SSD 335 Series 240 GB, on which I want the upgrade to be installed, and a USB 3 NexStar caddy.
I imagine the most elegant approach would be to load Windows 8.1 on the SSD via the caddy connected to the HP laptop which is connected to the Internet, and then install the SSD into the Dell Studio XPS 9000.
Samsung NP365E5C-S05US laptop. I just did a hardware check and found that my USB 2.0-CRW card reader doesn't have a driver. The fix provides for a Realtek driver to be downloaded from Realtek, which I have done. The first stop is in my Downloads file and I need to know how I can install it from there.
My laptop (Acer Aspire E1-571) refuses to install the Intel VGA driver. I've tried via the Acer Live Updater and manually through the Acer and Intel website. I am assuming this is the cause of the fake dead pixels on my screen, the terrible quality of videos and the reason the screen freezes when playing any video game.
I have a Dell Studio XPS, I have just installed an SSD for the boot / system drive and am using Windows 8.
I wanted to make an copy of the SSD for backup. I have tried a number of program which boot from CD or USB but they all start to load and then stop. The software tried is "Mini Tool Partition Wizard", "Driveimage XLM", and others.
I know the CD boot system works ok as that is how I installed Windows 8 to the SSD and the above software all starts to load and then locks up.
Running win 8 and installed Windows 8.1 and device manager told me windows shut down my video card (560 Ti) because of a problem and began running default drivers. I tried everything from removing and reinstalling drivers, reseating the video card, changing slots, etc....
As soon as I reverted back to Windows 8, EVERYTHING ran as fine as before.

I have attached as requested the archive containing the SF Diagnostic Tool v5 dumps.
I am receiving a huge number of BSOD errors, after each one the nVidia graphics card is nowhere to be found, rebooting the system does not work, in order to bring the nVidia card back I need to shutdown and power on the system, 2 attempts are required, first power on attempt always fails and the system shuts down right after the bios logo.
The video card was recently changed to a brand new one.
Where to get the relavent OpenGl Drivers from for windows 8 ? Apps designed for Windows 8 are fine , anything which did play on Windows 7 (minecraft for example) just gets the same error message, "Bad videocard drivers! failed to find an accelerated OpenGL mode ".
I have a Dell Inspiron 15R SE 7520 laptop that came with Windows 8 Core edition pre-installed. This laptop has never worked properly for some reason. It won't shutdown the normal way (it'll just stay on the shutdown screen forever) and it never comes back from sleep without a BSOD along with other troubles that haven't been solved by updating drivers,etc.
I decided I want to do a clean Windows 8.1 re-install and upgrade on my laptop to get rid of these problems, but it's been ages since I last did this (back in Win2K times, I used to dual boot Slackware Linux) and I've bee reading about all this UEFI, Secure Boot,etc and quite frankly it's making me quite nervous. I was even planning on taking this chance to dual boot some linux distro, but it looks sooo difficult. Things are much more complicated these days for the tinkerer!
I need to make sure I can get back to a running system quickly.
For starters, here is how the hard drive is partitioned: [URL] .... And this is the Diskpart output : [URL] ....
Why do I have 5 partitions? I understand the recovery partition, the OS partition and (after lots of reading) the ESP partition, but I'm not sure about the others. What do I need to keep? I've been reading around and I see some people recommend wiping the whole drive and starting from scratch. Is this a good ide?
I'll create the installation media from a windows 8.1 MSDN ISO using a USB drive. When I start the installation process it will ask me where I want to reinstall it to. Do I just choose the OS partition? Won't the recovery partition be based on a Windows 8 image and be useless from now on?
What's the best way I can get back to a fully working system in case I screw up somehow? I've made an image of my drive using Macrium Reflect free edition. But I read here that I cannot make an image of a GPT disk. Will this image I made work for getting back to a working system quickly in case I screw up?
As a last resort, I've made a Recovery USB using the Dell Backup and Recovery Method. In the extreme case that I screw up real bad, will this work to get back a factory-state system even if I've wiped my hard drive clean? I'm assuming this tool is for users recovering after a dead hard drive so it should work , right?
I failed several times at installing Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit on my Latitude E6510 (from July 2010). Windows 7 Pro 32 bit was pre-installed when I bought the laptop. As I recently upgraded the RAM from 3 to 8 GB, I would like to use a 64 bit system now.I tried to boot from the installation DVD and the windows flag appears. After several seconds, a message on a blue background pops up: "Your PC ran into a problem. We are collecting some information and then we will restart it for you." That is the message, as fas as I can remember. It is only shown for one second and then the laptop reboots automatically. I have got no chance to get into an installation menu. I already tried a BIOS update from A03 to the most recent version A16 with no success. Boot mode is set to legacy at the moment, I also tried UEFI temporarily, with no change...
I've recently acquired a tablet to pilot with my company. It is a Dell Latitude 10 ST2, and my issue is I'm trying to install and upgrade to Windows 8.1 Enterprise, but having no luck so far.
I have the 32-bit version of Win 8 Enterprise on a USB, and when I get to the "Installing Windows 8.1 screen" it get to 35%, and then gives a popup that the "Windows 8.1 Installation Has Failed". I was trying to see if there was a real error message or log to tell me what the issue is, but I haven't been able to locate anything yet. I don't even make it to the following screen ....
I want to get started with WP8/8.1 dev and I decided to dual boot on my work laptop (Mac Book).
The problem is I don't want to use my Dreamspark (OEM as far as I know) license on my work PC since it's an academic license if I'm not mistaking and this might cause some problems at work, and I also don't want to activate it on my 6 years old PC since I have some projects still going on and I'm planning on upgrading sometime next year.
So my question(s) is simple: Can I install the 90 days trial of Windows 8.1 Enterprise and reinstall again, on same PC after the trial is over?
In the device manager, under memory technology devices, I have Realtek PCIE CardReader Properties displayed twice. The two locations are: PCI bus 2, device 0, function 0; and PCI bus 2, device 0, function 1. Dell offered a driver update for the cardreader which I installed. Only 1 of these 2 actually updated.
My question is do I need to update both or is one enough?
I used to have Office 2007 on my computer. Recently, when trying to install 2013, I found out I had to first uninstall 2007. Simply using programs and features was not so simple, and I had to do it manually, which I probably ended up doing some steps wrong. Now, when I constantly click on certain things-- like control panel or personalization-- I receive an installer for Microsoft Enterprise 2007. Obviously, I do not want this; frankly, I don't even know what it is; I assume some part of Office. If I attempt to complete the install, I get an error of having insufficient files .If I click cancel, it does cancel, however; I get a windows explorer error.
I am working on computer for a coworker. He recently migrated a questionable Windows 7 installation to an SSD and started getting BSOD's pretty frequently. He had been wanting to try Windows 8.1 for a while.
First I attempted to install from a thumb drive and received NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM errors during installation. I tried again with a DVD and received the error once, but was then able to install. All the while I was doing a custom installation and deleting the old volume and creating a new one for the installation.
After the first or second boot to desktop, it BSOD'ed again, but I didn't catch the error code. The last time it happened I recorded an error code of KERNEL_SECURITY_CHECK_FAILURE. This was after installing Nvidia Drivers from the Nvidia website.
I'm suspecting this is some sort of problem with the SSD itself, as it has persisted through the fresh OS installation. I have attached the SF diagnostic tool file.
My pc will crash at random times sometimes just when surfing the internet and others when waking it from sleep it will show a BSOD. Almost every time this happens I get a message that says "your pc has recovered the video drivers" I have tried updating drivers and re-installing them and I still get this. Sometimes the pc will go for 2 weeks with out an error other times it is every 1-2 days. I have Attached the Diagnostics information from the tool. I do not know if the issues are related of not.
In order to play World of Warplanes, they recommended a rollback to a previous version of the driver. I unistalled the video driver, downloaded the old one and restarted the computer.
Now the monitor (or monitors, as I tried with an Acer and a Samsung one) both pop up a "Input not supported" right after the Windows Logo even if a try to boot in Safe Mode (so, no, I can't enter Advanced Recovery Mode). The same after I try to boot from a USB.
The same error I got when I installed Windows 8.1, a month ago, but after the "Input not supported" remained for 15 minutes or so it restarted a couple of times, and after 40 de minutes the installation begun. Now I'm waiting for 2 hours and nothing.
After certain update of my graphics card driver I no longer have a video playback on my video players (including WMP), besides VLC. All the other video player are just able to play the sound of the video file, Nut not the video (the screen just stays black).The thing is that I didn't have this problem previously,, all my video players were able to play all the same video files, which they can't now!
I have the latest AMD Radeon HD video drivers installed. As I mentioned I didn't have this problem before,, with a previous versions of the AMD graphics card driver. This happened to my laptop a while ago already,, Since I have this problem I updated my video drivers 5 or 6 times at least, and no change so far !!!
As I mentioned I have the problem for some time already, during this time I re-installed my Windows couple of times, plus I even changed the version of the windows (7 to 8), for the moment I have the last version of video driver installed, I haven't installed ANY codecs.
I can probably find out from which update of a graphic card driver it started to happen and install the previous version, but I don't wanna miss out on the benefits of the driver updates, since I can still play normally videos on VLC (Only! cuz its probably have integrated codecs?!)
All the other graphic card related tasks are perfectly normal, I play games and so on.
