Q: [G70] Doesn't boot after reinstalling drivers from...

Hey I have a Lenovo G70 and did a fresh install of Win10 on it. Then I reinstalled the Lenovo drivers from the driver partition D and now it won't boot anymore. It's stuck in a loop after the Lenovo font disappears.If I shut it down and then start it again it won't even get to the Lenovo font. It just stays black. Have to remove the battery and then I get the loop after the Lenovo font again. What do? Why did your own drivers kill the laptop?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Here is some information I know off the top of my head. If you have any input please let me know, I'm trying to get this done before tonight since its Friday ugh.

I have my BIOS settings set to

LSC120 - 3

Computer had Vista installed I am trying to install either XP or Vista at this moment neither are booting from disc.

Computer will start up and do a "Memory Testing : "

After this it will show 2 other screens they go by fast.

The 3rd screen is the option to boot with
Safe mode
safe mode with networking
safe mode with command prompt
last known good configuration (advanced)
start windows normally

I have chose each one of these options, they all encounter an error and the computer restarts.

The computer has been running with Vista for a year atleast and started to gain spam and such and needed a restore for better speed.
The computer is built with random parts I don't see anything inside the case that shows any mistakes.

Here are two videos I made on the start up's:

Then here is the error that occurs when I turn off Auto Restart when error occurs:

I need to reformat and reinstall Windows XP on my Dell Dimension 8200, which is about 5 year old. It is my understanding that first you reinstall XP and then you have to reinstall the drivers. I am not sure how to reinstall the drivers.

When I ordered my computer from Dell, it came with things like a monitor, printer, speakers, video card, and sound card.

The computer also came with a cd that is labeled "Drivers and Utilities". The cd is also labeled "Dell Dimension ResourceCD for Reinstalling Device Drivers and Using Diagnostics, Utilities, and Online Documentation".

Will this cd install all of the necessary drivers for all of the hardware that came with my computer? For instance, my video card is a NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 420. Will the cd have the drivers for this, or will it only have some sort of generic video drivers?

If the cd does have all the necessary drivers, how do I use it to actually install them? Do I just click some button and the cd will automatically install all the necessary drivers?

Last, is there some program I can use that will make copies of my already existing device drivers so that I can use them as a last resort.

I'm at my wit's end.

I reinstalled W-7 Pro, and it doesn't work nearly as well. Maybe I installed it incorrectly, I would appreciate hearing the voice of experience.

The reinstall was an effort to speed up the machine, but in some ways it slowed down.

I tried to install the XP Mode and that mode wouldn't install at all, whereas I installed it without a hitch on the previous O/S.

The machine was bought used and had the O/S already installed. I used an eBay bought, previously unopened SKU-FQC-00129 Win Pro 7 English ROW/DVD as the source for the installation. The DVD was run and things seemed to proceed normally.

The physical machine is a Lenovo ThinkCentre M Series x86 64 bit, so I installed the 64 bit version of the O/S.

Do I need to take it to a shop to have the O/S installed correctly? I previously installed W-7 Home Premium on an XP machine and had no problem. Is W-7 Pro a different animal? Can you install W-7 Pro on a machine that already has W-7 Pro?

Thank you

Nah; you shouldnt have to shell out any more $ to a shop; just to get a clean install. Please see the link in my signature that says "windows-clean install". That will show you step by step on how to get a clean install done hopefully without any hickups in the end.

I'm about to reformat an old computer. No problem with the reformat, but I'm a little confused when it comes to installing the audio, sound, ethernet drivers. My disk contains more than one for each of these, therefore I don't know which one to use. My OS is XP. After the reformat can I just go to the device manager and select update manager, set location to the cd?

A:reinstalling drivers?


Once you have formatted...you should install the chipset driver first...this sort of configures all the other drivers to install correctly....i then normally do the audio and graphics and ethernet...im not sure just how important those are in any particular order as i have not had any problems doing it that way....just make sure the chipset goes in first!

Once xp is installed, either load the disc on autoplay or via "my computer"...just click on the cd icon...you should then be able to choose what drivers you wish to download

Dont forget the windows updates...they will be automatic and will probably take ages

Hi all,
I upgraded to Win 7 x64 a few wks past and initially all went well. However, since then, I've discovered that I have to keep reinstalling drivers for all my plug & play hardware. Once I reinstall they work fine for that session, but then on a reboot, I have to once again reinstall. I'm doing so through the device right click/Troubleshoot option.

When I first noticed it on the Kindle I thought it was because it wasn't compatible for x64 or something & indeed the Kindle tech I spoke to stated that, BUT others with the same model as me use theirs on an x64 platform without any diffs.

So I'm really unsure whether it is a compatibility issue etc or something else. For 2 of the devices I downloaded the specific drivers & updated manually, where the other device I let Windows find the driver itself.

Anyone any suggestions either how to check where the problem is coming from or else ideas on how best to fix it?

Whenever I turn my desktop ON, all me my hardware suddenly starts re installing itself and then i'm prompted to restart. And when i restart, the same cycle repeats itself. Also, i use my phone's bluetooth connection to connect to the internet on my pc, so is this bluetooth causing the problem. I'm using a v2.0 usb dongle with bluesoleil.

Firstly, let's try starting the desktop with the Bluetooth? and the USB 2.0 dongle disconnected.
If this is not successful; start the computer while continually tapping the F8 key, this will take you to a screen with a number of listings; such as, Safe Mode, and including Last known good configuration.
Select Last Known Good configuration, and allow the PC to reboot.
All should be normal by now...post back with the outcome of these two suggestions.

Hi, I'm new to the forum! I'm reformatting my computer and upgrading it to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit from Windows Vista Home Basic 32-bit. I have already done the check to make sure all my hardware is compatible; it is. My question is what drivers do I need exactly? My list so far has: Chipset Graphics card Sound Card Ethernet Card Am I missing any? Aside from that I need a bit of help with the chipset/GPU driver. I have an nForce 430 chipset with integrated GeForce 6150LE however I have purchased an ATI Radeon HD 4350 graphics card and have been running off of that. My question in regard to the chipset driver is firstly, where is the nForce driver download? I am unable to find this specific chipset on nVidia's website and secondly if I find a driver will the graphic card drivers come bundled with it? If so, is there a way to get the chipset driver without the graphic driver for the integrated GPU. Thanks!

Hmmm... did the "System Restore" thingy & now when looking in "My Computer" it lists the size of drive "C:\" as 225 GB with free space of 70.4 GB

But if I open drive "C:\" and highlight all the right-click "Properties", the system calculates:

"Location: All in C:\
Size: 49.8 GB (53,494,040,792 bytes)

Thanx in advance for any help!


A:Reinstalling XP -- doesn't recognize H-Drive size...

Hi Kaje

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. [finishing projects, & holiday weekend coming up!] . . . Did you find your answer already?

If not, what sort of restore did you run: the built-in "System Restore" that's part of Windows XP, or a "Restore" CD/DVD/partition provided by the system vendor?

It's possible that nothing at all is wrong: the numbers you provide could be true if you have a lot of data stored in hidden folders on the drive. If we subtract the 70.4gb of free space from the 225gb capacity, that leaves us with 154.6gb worth of data to account for. In Windows Explorer, you selected 49.8gb worth of data in those folders. But still there's 104.8gb unaccounted for. The possibilities are 1) Windows miscalculation (software error) 2) large amounts of legitimate data stored in hidden folders, or 3) large amounts of malware hidden by a rootkit.

If you have Windows Explorer set to "Hide protected operating system files" and to "Do not show hidden files and folders" - none of these were selected or counted in the total sum of used disk-space as reported by your selected folders in Explorer. The System Restore files, in fact, if set to the default of 12% of disk capacity, might be taking up as much as 27gb of space, if filled up completely. If at any point, an administrative user on your system has set their files to "private" - that too will hide them. If a user made their My Music or My P... Read more

I recently had to do a fresh install/reinstall of Windows 7 Home Premium again on my computer, due to a HD failure I had and some other computer issues I was having. Prior to this fresh install, I had the exact same OS installed prior to this as well.

Anyhow, before my HD had failed- I had Jasc Paint Shop Pro V. 9 installed and running just fine on my computer. I know it's quite an older program, but I have used it throughout the years on and off, and am quite fond of it. I used this program up until I did the reinstall of Win7 last month. (And as I mentioned, I had the exact same OS installed when PSP9 was working before).

After doing the fresh install/reinstall of Win7 Home Premium last month, I cannot get Paint Shop Pro 9 to work AT ALL. It will not even start. It installs, but after the install, it does nothing. I can click on a picture and tell it to open in PSP9, but the program will not open. Task Manager does show the program as running, however. But I do not see it. When I right click on the program and attempt to run the program with compatibility settings or with admin settings, the program still does not open. Sometimes, Microsoft will give me the error message, "Incompatible Application".

I have attempted to turn off my firewall and antivirus during installation, and while running the program. Doesn't work. I have tried making registry changes (seen some reference here on the forum), didn't make a difference. I have lowered my UAC levels, progr... Read more

If the download speed is too slow at the above link and if you have a Wired connection already, you can install IoBit Driver Booster that will show certified drivers missing in your laptop along with available updates.
There's an opinion that some drivers shown by such apps are not stable to use. That shouldn't be the case with the wireless driver. I recommend not to download/update other drivers. Just look for the Wireless driver it suggests and download it.
There are alternatives though, like Drivereasy.

I recently decided to switch back to Vista after using the Win7 RC version for several weeks, due to problems with my USB devices that I couldn't figure out how to resolve.

So I ended up having to reformat my laptop, which I wasn't happy with at all.

So I go about reinstalling Vista, get everything set up, and I'm instantly confronted with several problems. One, my resolution is stuck at 1024x786, instead of the 1366x678 I previously had, with no option to change it. Two, I have no internet and the diagnostics tells me that my hardware isn't even properly installed.

I go to device manager and there are several things flagged with an exclamation point, which leads me to assume that I'm missing some drivers. I go to the resource and utilities CD, but I really have no idea what to download and what not to. I also can't seem to find my adapter driver anywhere on the CD.

I just want my laptop back to the way it was before I was dumb enough to not put Win7 on a separate partition.

Windows is freezing when I try to select my Handycam HC30 mini DV cam thru firewire for capture, until I unplug the device. Actually, first it'll say "cannot locate" a vid-cap device, but then after a bunch of time it'll kinda find it, but then just chokes trying to interface; locking up the system until unplug.

This problem has been happening since I did a fresh install of XP SP2, whereas before on the identical machine and platform it worked fine (reinstalled due to a corrupted boot sector).

I think the root problem may be that the PnP drivers Windows installed got corrupted when installed (a bubble at lower right said there may be problems with the installation). There don't seem to be custom drivers for this cam, nor are there any removable devices that I can see in device manager, so if someone can help me figure out how to remove this device (or other fix I'm not thinking of) so that I can try fresh again, that'd help alot.

FYI: The device does make the appropriate sound when you plug it in or out, and it still works w/same cable on a mac.

Ugh hey me again. Please help this is driving me crazy.

About four days ago I had all my games and applications on my External Mybook connected by USB2 at a speed of 5400RPM. After finding out they could go faster on my internal I switched them over to there but during the process of moving about 3 games simutainously Vista froze and when I booted it back up explorer would freeze everytime it loaded. After this, I reinstalled Vista to grab some of my other stuff to back it up on my external in case the internal had to be formatted. Vista seemed to be working okay at this point with the Explorer working fine. In the morning I turned on the computer to find that Vista wouldn't boot up. It just went blank before showing the loading screen. I reinstalled Vista two times and the same thing happened, it worked fine and then I shut it down and then next time I booted it up it wouldn't get to to the logon screen. I then tried the same thing with XP and Win7 Build 7600 and it STILL happened. I actually thought my hard drive was corrupted and it was a old ****ty WD SE 3600 which I was intending to replace anyway so I bought a new Seagate 7200.12 and installed Vista. It installed notacibly faster by like twenty minutes as opposed to the old hard drive so I thought the problem was fixed but yeah I shut it down and bang. Not loading.

Anyone have any idea what's wrong?

I plugged it in and it didn't come back on so I pressed the power to reboot it.

It never rebooted. It got to the Windows Logo and hung there. So, I cycled the power and tried to boot to LKG. No dice. I rebooted again and tried to run startup repair and memory diagnostics; no issues. So, then I tried booting into safe mode. No luck there either. I noticed that it hung at a specific file; amdkmpfd.sys, which Google tells me is the graphics driver.

Now, a simple OSRI should fix the problem, but I have data on there that I don't want to lose. So, it's been a long time, but I seem to remember there being a way that I could copy the .sys file to a flash drive and then use the C: prompt to copy it back to the system directory and reinstall it that way. In theory that should repair the issue, right? Does anyone have any good command prompt resources that might help?

A:Need some help with reinstalling graphics drivers via C prompt

What a crap! I hope you did not have the term paper etc stored there in the laptop without having a backup.

amdkmpfd.sys is actually the AMD PCI Root Bus Lower Filter. If the computer does not boot normally and hangs on it. Try to boot it in Safe Mode. Then first back up your data externally, and then plan for a clean reinstall.

But if the computer even does not boot into safe mode, still you try to back the data up at first. Follow this method:
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

After backing up all the important data externally, go for the clean reinstall.

Basically, I accidentally uninstalled the drivers for my secondary hard drive that I only used for storage through device manager. Now it shows the hard drive under Other devices. When I open the properties for it it shows that there are no drivers installed for it (obviously). So my question is, how do I reinstall the drivers for it so vista recognizes it as a disk drive? I've tried connecting it to different SATA ports, which didn't work. It is recognized in the BIOS and there is nothing wrong with the hard drive since I can access it from another computer. I've reinstalled motherboard drivers and I also did the "search for drivers" for the hard drive through windows but nothing was found. Any help would be appreciated.

Background: After installing a new dvd writer in my laptop, I began getting errors on the USB port ("One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned,and Windows does not recognize it...") Now my keyboard did sustain a minor spill in the past (thanks to small kids) and a small amount got onto the motherboard and possibly when I took my computer apart, I disturbed this by blasting air inside, who knows, but the usb ports are still recognized and would supply power until that message popped up. I tried all workaround fixes I could find, and still the usb ports do not work (if I plug one thing in, multiple 'unknown devices" appear in the device manager).

I tried reinstalling windows (without a reformat) and that did not solve my problem, and the installation failed somehow and I was unable to reinstall the network drivers because of error messages, nor was I able to delete some of the ones that showed drivers but were not working properly.

So, as a last ditch effort, I decided to format my hard drive and reinstall windows. Now, not only can I not use the usb ports, my touchpad is no longer working properly. I can move the cursor around, but the buttons are not working. I have tried to navigate using the keyboard functions (alt and windows keys) but my computer isn't always opening the windows/menus I want or getting to where I want to go.

I do not care about the touchpad or usb ports if I am able to get to the point that I can buy a... Read more

Hello, looking for advice. I have a Dell ATG laptop 6420 and I'm running a program called V1 golf swing analysis for my teaching business. Im having intermittent issues using the voiceover recording feature. After I record the voice over sometimes it doesn't save it. I've used this program for many years with no issues on older laptops. After I purchased this new laptop and It became infected w/ virus. Reinstalled Windows and downloaded drivers from website. Since I've never had issues with Dell laptops and the recording for voice over program on my V1 I'm thinking I didn't reinstall all of the correct drivers from the Dell website. Once I have the ATG drivers pulled up in the Dell website, How do I know which drivers I should be downloading from the Dell website ?
The computer otherwise seems to work perfect and I've spoken with the v1 tech support and they don't seem have the answers. Any suggestions or comments would be great thanks.

A:Reinstalling drivers from dell website

I don't know where you went for drivers on Dell however you could go from here after entering the information you should only be given a choice of the drivers your machine requires.
There are ways to check which driver you have installed now but it's just as easy to download them and run the installation executable.
One of two things will occur.
The driver will install or update the existing driver, if it asks if you want to remove the older driver first (for any of them) answer yes, the old one is removed, usually it will reboot and then proceed with the new installation.
The driver is not required or not the correct one so it will advice you that it won't install as it's not the right one.
In any event I think it highly unlikely you would disrupt anything doing this. Don't forget to backup and\or set a restore point before doing anything.

A:Printer drivers need reinstalling after every reboot

Hi Chris,
if it works on 75 percent of the clients I would do the following thing. Your clients are probably in a domain environment. I would copy the security descriptor (SID) from a properly working client with subinacl.exe (A command line tool which you can download
from MS download) and push it to a not working client and test if it solves the problem.
I thing this is the easiest method.
Subinacl is a the most powerfull tool ever !
With kind regards,

A:BSOD after reinstalling windows 8.1 and MB drivers.

Only 67 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 80 to 100 or more (I've seen as high as 132). Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have 5 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Out of 8 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

Ok, long story. Going to try and shorten it.

1.) emptied my emachines T6216 of all data
2.) upgraded to Windows7 trial version, (partitioned to C: drive, wrong)
3.) tried to maximize space and compressed my C:drive, (wrong again)
3.) bootmgr compressed, could not get it reverted, since loaded from file source and not a bootable cd, could not get to the repair feature
4.) has to go back and completely reinstall XP from scratch

New here, Hi guys.

I recently picked up a pre-built machine that came with W7 (OEM) pre-installed and an Nvidia 8400GS. I replaced the 8400GS with a GTS 250 and figured I'd uninstall the drivers that W7 pulled in through Windows Update, and download the latest Nvidia drivers.

I uninstalled the stock drivers in the Device Manager, checked the "delete drivers" box and restarted the machine. W7 dedected the card and immediately started to auto-install drivers. I could skip the downloading of new drivers, but it still installed older Nvidia drivers (dated April or May 2009). Can this be prevented? If so, how?

Windows Update then offered to download newer drivers (September 2009), which I allowed manually (this part is fine). What I'm looking for is a clean way to uninstall the drivers installed by W7 and then manually install the driver package I downloaded from Nvidia.com.

On a side note (should probably make a separate post for this), is it normal that after the W7 desktop is displayed (including shortcut icons), after two seconds the icons reset (become white default icons) and somewhat slowly reload? After a reboot, that is. I don't remember this happening with the 8400GS before I fiddled with the drivers.

Thanks for any pointers!

Hi guys, I'm new here.

I've had some virus trouble and decided to reformat and reinstall windows. Well after I reinstalled, windows didn't detect that I had a sound card, or network card installed. I've looked up a little bit of information on it, but it's been rather confusing and I'm a bit scared to continue messing with my computer with out knowing what I'm doing.

I read up that I need to install some chipset drivers so that my motherboard can recognize the different cards? I downloaded a program to tel me what my chipset is, but it gave me a long number and I didn't know which one to use. The chipset it gave me was i865p/pe/g/i848p. I downloaded some chipset and installed it, but when I restarted my computer it said that it couldn't detect an OS. Some how since then my computer can boot properly and can load up windows.

So I guess what my question is, what drivers do I need to download for my computer? My mother board is a Think Centre M50 818931u. If you need anymore information about my pc let me know.

Thanks in advance,

A:Windows Xp doesn't detect network or sound card after reinstalling and formatting

Well, there are several ways to approach this.

I keep a junky USB network card, and it's drivers on a thumbdrive, and everytime I reinstall XP, first thing I do is install SP3 standalone, and the second thing I do is install the USB network card and run Windows Update. Most or all of the drivers for the motherboard (or "chipset") usually get installed this way. Saves time hunting for specific drivers for specific motherboards, because it is tedious and time-consuming sometimes.

If this is an OEM machine (Gateway, Dell, HP, etc...) you can find the motherboard drivers via the support page of the web-site of the company that manufactured it. Just run the model number of the computer on their search engine, and the drivers will be there.

If the machine is custom, there is always a silk-screened model number on the surface of the motherboard, that will tell you what model it is. You can then usually find drivers for that model on the motherboard manufacturers support page.

These "driver finding programs" that I see seem like big fat scams, trying to get you to register, pay, read ads, recieve spam and after spending a lot of time, you still don't have the drivers. I wouldn't waste time with any of them, and have always been able to find the drivers I need.

It's a skill, and takes practice. One component of this is the ability to see where the time-wasters are (such as "register for our free driver finding service"), and where the... Read more

Hi. I recently had to reformat and reinstall windows xp pro after a virus went in and destroyed the system files. I might just add that it also stopped the internet from working (adapter appeared unitalled even though it was). I have reinstalled xp but it is missing many of its important drivers such as the etherent, sound and display drivers.

Firstly I tried just downloading the internet driver for my Dell optiplex GX270 and then installing them but that still doesn't make a difference as the computer does not identify them. Everything was working fine before all of this so i though that the windows cd would replace some of these drivers but it appears not..... The network drivers are the most important so i can download the rest and get xp updated.

I do not have the driver disks for this computer as they were not provided by the seller (Ebay) but it is an authetic Dell computer.

Hello there,

I am moving drives to new computer and therefore I need help. I would like to know if there is any possibility to install new RAID drivers without fresh reinstalling Windows (W7 professional x64).

Only idea which comes to my mind is booting from W7 install disc and trying "repair" option (if available). Could it bring dialog of asking for RAID drivers if chipset is set to RAID mode?

System setup is following:System SSD - not in RAID
Data HDD 1 - RAID 1
Data HDD 2 - RAID 1

A:Install new RAID drivers without reinstalling Windows 7?

Same problem for me. Hope you get an answer.

Actually, I want to replace my SSD with a larger one. At the same time, I want to change the BIOS to RAID so I can put a couple of drives together for data. I was able to change my BIOS setting from IDE to ACHI as an intermediate step.

That increased the speed of the SSD, but I still want to switch the BIOS to RAID for the sake of the data drives.
