I did an XP update and installed all the Windows updates. Now I cannot install my Radeon SE-DT graphics drivers. I get an "installation failed, try to install standard VGA drivers" note after the most current downloaded driver installation program runs InstallShield. I'm running on an ASUS A7V motherboard (1011 BIOS) with AMD Athlon processor and 768 MB of Crucial RAM; 2GB Maxtor drive. I'm using LiveOne Care for security.I'd lime to know if the motherboard chipset drivers can be updated from within Windows without doing the floppy disk boot.
I'm running graphics on the VGA save mode and it is goofy scrolling down a screen watching the waves as the data clunks in. Can anyone suggest an easy install? ATI Radeon has been no help so far. By the way, Device Manager shows no video display components from which verify or update drivers.
I changed the above setting in my device manager hoping to fix an annoying stutter problem caused with media player when my wireless signal would go out of range. I remembered changing the irq settings in win2k to solve conflicts on that system, but found that the options is not available in xp. A quick web search lead to a site which reproduced a knowledge base article from microsoft. Only, the article was truncated in a way such that the dangers of said action were not published. The drive boots up to the XP OS screen, hangs, blue screens, the end. With my problem drive set up as a slave, is there a way to change the settings back, or manually cut and paste Hkeys, or system folders or the like to restore the drive to it's previous state? Seems logical same computer with the same installation of xp pro sp2
I finally broke down and went from W2K Pro to XP Pro on my new build. Almost all my apps have installed just fine but two that I need will not. They are NetObjects Fusion 7 and Adobe Elements 2.0. Both are fairly new, around 2002 or 3 releases and both are rated for XP but once I launch the setup.exe the hourglass shows for about 5 seconds and then goes back to the standard cursor. I checked the Task Manager and in both cases setup.exe is loaded and running and I have to End Process to try the setup again but the same thing happens each time to both apps. They both installed fine and I've been using them for years on my W2K Pro machine.
I have a Gateway 7422GX which as a Mobility Radeon 9550. I repaired windows using the cd because I restarted my computer and it was either going to take 7min+ to boot, or just wasn't going to. I got stuck at the windows splash screen. I'm using windows professional. Whenever I try to install any of the drivers, I get the same error message: Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit.
I have this seriously big problem on my computer (well why else would i be here)i have a ACER Aspire L100 which is a VERY good pc.it used to have Media Centre edition as the operating system but it suddenly stopped working. so i was forced to install windows xp home edition.now when i install the sound driver ever time i try and open up a media program such as media player or itunes and turns around and tells me that there is a problem with the sound card and another program must be using it. The graphic driver is the other driver that wont install properly. when i run the installation i get a message that reads
ive tried and run windows update but it doesnt find anything.
I'm trying to install an old driver (VIA OHCI Compliant IEEE 1394 Host Controller) for my firewire card. When I try to install it through the device manager, there's only an option to update the driver so when I try to install the old one it says it can't find a better match than the one I've got already (generic cardbus controller).I've tried uninstalling the current driver but I can't find a way to manually install the old one. I'm running XP Pro SP3 on an HP 530 laptop.
Since upgrading from ME to Win2k I have had to upgrade most of my drivers. I have an oversize printer bjc5100 that I use in my artwork. The new driver for the printer won't install on my system. It doesn't even recognize that it's in the file I've designated.
I have a USB device (Motorola V3 phone) and when connected it the driver did not install properly (something like there was an error installing the device) and the only option was to close the device wizard (no back option) I tried this on all my USB ports. The problem now is that when I plug the phone into a USB nothing happens at all - it doesn't try and load a new driver and since the driver it installed before didn't work it doesn't use that.How can I remove all trace of the phone from the PC so that it will have another go at installing the driver (I used the CD that came with the phone before, but I have since got it to work on another PC by letting it search the web for a driver).
I recently bought a Motorola Razr V3m from Verizon. Everything works great except I cannot get the drivers to install to transfer music from the Vcast Music Manager to my phone. When I plug in my phone, it says "Found New Hardware Razr V3c". I don't know if this is because the V3m uses the same drivers, but none the less, it won't install. It will end up saying " Cannot Install this hardware". If I plug in my phone while it is off, it will detect it as "Motorola USB Modem" and complete the installation, but 30 seconds after turning it back on, it then again detects it as "Razr V3m". I have tried to install on 2 PCs, one running WinXP Pro, other running WinXP Media Center. I am using the CD that came in the "Vcast Music Essentials Kit".
I had Vista, I hated it so I installed a copy of WIndows XP SP3 I had. I have had no audio and belarc wouldn't even recognise the existance of a sound card. After attempting the fixes suggested on other threads here and elsewhere I managed to get microsoft uaa function driver for high definition audio - Adi 1983 to show up in my device manager, but it has a yellow ! exclamation mark.still no sound.
I have Windows XP SP2 on my laptop. I have been using an Epson C66 printer with this laptop for about 2 years. I recently had a problem with the printer so I went through the troubleshooter process and was instructed to contact Epson. I did, and when I sent the error script that I receive, they told me to contact Microsoft. I have been searching the articles for patches, fixes, etc but am not having any luck. When I try to reinstall the printer (with the printer cd or manually), the installation appears to be going through and copying files and then I get a message that the installation can not finish. The error script says: "The I/O operation has been aborted due to a thread exit or an application request."
I am having a heck of a time with this. I am trying to install Windows XP on a Lenovo R60e that has a SATA hard drive. I cannot for the life of me find the driver. I cannot seem to find anything resembling this driver on Lenovo's "Driver Matrix" or anywhere else on their site. Is there a generic one out there that anyone knows of? I want to slipstream this into an XP install, but I can't do it without the driver.
The reason this is urgent for me is because I am leaving to move into my new apartment tomorrow morning, and once I am gone from my house, pretty much any technical problem will not get solved (I am sure many of you here are familiar with this position).My brother's computer was full of viruses so I reinstalled a fresh copy of windows, and everything is working great.But I go to install the Westell wireless G USB adapter for internet, and the driver will not install.I have installed the utility first - it then asks to connect the device which I did. The new hardware thing pops up, and since I don't have the installation CD (lost it, but downloaded the files from Westell's website), I browse to the folder of those files, and it searches and says it cannot find the driver.
I'm having a problem after installing Win2K. I can't pick up the sound driver. Now this is an HP Pavilion xl848, 850mhz. Anyway it comes with a modem and sound COMBO and it picks up the modem and works fine... but the audio will not install.
I'm trying to get my Canon IP8500 printer to work with my Samsung NC20 netbook which is running Windows XP.Usually I simply plug the printer into any Windows XP computer and it'll automatically install the necessary drivers. However, when I plug it into my netbook and instruct Windows XP to automatically search/find and install the drivers, it can't find any.So I've gone onto the Canon website and manually downloaded the drivers, but when I try to install them via the setup.exe it says that a newer driver is already installed, and aborts the setup.The weird thing is that there definitely isn't a driver already installed, because I've even gone into device manager and uninstalled the printer/driver before trying again.
I am using Windows XP Home with SP1 and SP2, a 1.7 GHz Pentium 4 with 1 GB of Ram. The problem involves a Coolscan 9000 film scanner with Firewire connection. Specifically, the scanner will not install.After installing the PCI card and Nikon Scan, turning the scanner on, or starting the computer after uinstalling the scanner from Device Manager, the following message appears:" Cannot Install This Hardware There was a problem installing this hardware.
My dell 4700 says it is using a "generic" video driver and I should install the proper one from manufacturer. tried dell driver site, clik download and takes me to a "internet connection failure" screen. internet is fine though. problem started trying to play Sims apt. life and new program for VHS to DVD transfer. both said DirectX 9 was problem- reinstalled that then found "generic" video driver.
I recently added a new sound card to my old computer. I have had this computer for nearly 3 years with zero problems. I installed a new sound card and installed the drivers. I now get through the mobo boot screen, then blackness, no BSoD, no Windows splash screen, nothing, just black. The computer is continuing to send a signal because the monitor does not go into power saving mode, but nothing happens after that. I've gone into BIOS and it is recognizing my HDD and my CD-ROM. I have tried booting from the disk, but the same thing happens, and yes, this is a legit copy made by MS.
I have to install a sound card driver.I used PC Wizard 2008 and under Device Audio it says:Device Audio :82801EB/ER (ICH5/ICH5R) AC'97 Audio Controller Manufacturer :Micro-Star International Co Ltd (MSI) Model :ALC850.
Some reason my ethernet driver won't install. i had just reformatted my hd(s) and for some reason it won't install the ethernet driver everything else installed video driver etc. there worked but its seem to skip over the ethernet driver when it going to install its.
Everytime I Delete A File, My Monitor Flickers. It Looks Kinda Like When You Set The Resolution. But Nothing Is Changed. I Tried Setting The Correct Driver For The Monitor, But The Problem Consists. I'm Using An Nvidia GeForce4 MX4000 With A Komodo Monitor(Set At 1280x1024).
Purchased an HP Deluxe Webcam KQ246AA to use with my Dell 5100 laptop, with Windows XP Home Edition O/S, SP3, Intel Pentium 4, 2.66GHz CPU, and 512 GB RAM. Loaded the HP supplied software CD, and then plugged the cable into a USB 2.0 port, but it failed to connect to the webcam. The hardware wizard gave the following message: �Problem installing the hardware: HP Deluxe Webcam KQ246AA. An error occurred during the installation of the driver.Have tried multiple times to delete and reload the software. Located the driver by clicking on Computer, System Properties, Hardware, then Device Manager tabs and found the driver under �Other Devices� which shows a yellow question mark. Is this the proper location for a device connecting to a USB port? Please advise. The General, Device Status tab contains the following message: This device is not configured correctly (Code 1). To reinstall the drivers for this device, click Reinstall Driver. I�ve tried to reload according to the prompts, but with no success.
My granddads computer was infected up the kaboose with trojans, viruses and stuff from not having SP 1 or 2 on it.I've put on Avast Anti-Virus, Zone Alarm, Ad-Aware, Hijack This, SP2, ran all the updates and everything else I could think of to clean down the system and it seemed to do the trick.Then I noticed the GFX card (Nvidia 5700) and Sound card (Soundblaster Live) werent installed correctly so I downloaded the latest drivers for each.When I install the GFX drivers the card works but when I restart the machine its like the drivers were never installed. I go into computer management the device list says "This device cannot start".
A friend of mine has a Dim.4500.He has used it for 4 or 5 years with no problems,except he says for the past 7 or 8 months its slightly slower downloading, surfing,ect...He is going to wipe it clean and he is wondering if he has to install chipset drivers before the driver for getting on the internet?
(I have XP SP3)I have been advised to install a new driver (ACPI) to cure a problem, but to remove the old version first. How does one do that? (Windows Help & Support, as usual is no help, and the Add/Remove Programs in the Control Panel likewise is obscure.)
I have a printer installed but when i try to print it keeps saying if i want to install the printer. And when i click yes it says: Operation could not be completed And when i try to delete my printer it says: Printer cannot be removed. The Print Spooler service is not running. And then i click RUN i type in services.msc and enter. Down the services list i go to Print Spooler and double click it. It says "Service status: Stopped". Well then i click start and after bout 10 seconds it goes back to stopped again
After installing Windows XP Home last night, I updated to SP3, installed drivers from toshiba.com. However, installing the driver for Ethernet controller didn't work from toshiba.com. Realtek ethernet is listed and working in device manager. This ethernet controller with yellow question mark maybe from the wireless card? The wireless xp utility is not in the system tray. I have an atheros internal wireless card. This is a Toshiba Satellite A25-s2792 laptop
I am going to install a new OS Windows XP , Home with sp2 on my computer , at least try. Now i remember that the network adaptor is one of the things i need to d/l drivers for , well i have already run into trouble i have a Intel Pro/1000 CT network adapter and can not find the driver for it.
I recently did a fresh install of Windows XP on on my laptop and since then I haven't been able to get sound working. Almost all drivers have been installed and Device manager tells me they are working just fine. My audio one is a Sigmatel driver, if that matters much ... but there's 5 others listed under "sound, video, and game controllers."Almost all drivers, as I said, the ones below I didn't install for various reasons:
* Sony Visual Communication Camera Driver -- It is actually installed, just disabled because it gives shutdown issues.
