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.)

Is there ANY way to find/add/download somehow restore my missing touchscreen driver?  When I first called Toshiba they told me to call Microsoft.  Microsoft told me to download the driver from Toshiba's site.  Toshiba does not offer this
on their site.  I called them back a few times, until the unit is now out of warranty, and Toshiba just refuses to help other than to say sorry.  I would really like the touchscreen functionality back and have tried the factory reset (through recovery)
but that didn't work.  I tried the 'hold the zero key while powering up' but that did not bring up the recovery screen at all.  I'm now up to Windows 10.  There must be some way to get this functionality back.  Thanks for any help!

I have been having trouble playing games on Steam and found out that my graphics driver is out of date.

Laptop: Toshiba Satellite, Model: A665D-S5172
Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4200 Series
Driver Version: 8.723.2.0

The latest driver version is 8.951.0.

The problem is that I cannot update the driver through other sources/websites due to Toshiba locking the driver updating through their site only. I checked their site and found that they have not provided an update for the latest ATI driver. I also found out that Toshiba no longer provides support for my laptop model.

I downloaded the latest driver from another source/site and tried to manually update it myself by telling it to look in the containing folder instead of online. When I do this the ATI Catalyst Control program pops up and takes over. It looks online for the latest driver and tells me I already have it. When I tried to deactivate ATI Catalyst it decided to delete the currently installed driver and I couldn't get ATI Catalyst to work afterwards to reinstall the driver from the Toshiba site. I was forced to go back to a previous known good startup point (I forget the exact terminology at the moment) to have things back the way it was before I messed with ATI Catalyst.

My question:
Is there a way to force update the driver without ATI Catalyst Control popping up and taking over?

Attached is a DxDiag text file.

A:Unable to update Toshiba Laptop Graphics Driver

Hello and welcome to the forums. McCrazy!

The answer is yes!

We'll do this the old fashioned way and bypass ATI's CCC and lock it down, using the good ol' reliable, uninstall, clean and reinstall method.

Before you do anything further, ensure that you have the following programs installed and at your disposal:-

1) Driver Sweeper 3.2.0 - This program will clean out all the remaining traces of AMD drivers on your system. Download and install this software before we begin.

Phyxion.net - Driver Sweeper

2) Download these 12.6 legacy drivers direct from AMD/ATI, no detection required, compatible with your mobility card also:-

http://www2.ati.com/drivers/legacy/1..._64_dd_ccc.exe

3) A system restore point handy just in case.


The Procedure:-


1) First, we're gonna take care of that pesky ATI Catalyst Control Center.

Head to your Task Manager (Press Ctrl-Shift-Escape) and terminate the CCC.exe and MOM.exe processes if you can find them. (Make sure to select Show Processes from all users at them bottom of the Task Manager first so that you can see all processes)


2) Next step, to get rid of all the existing AMD graphics software on your system in preparation for the new drivers.


Head to your Programs and Features entry in the Control Panel, find the AMD Catalyst Install Manager entry and right click on it, select Change and then select the option to remove all the AMD software on your system, and while yo... Read more

A:Unable to install Windows Update: Update Kernel-mode driver framework

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

I have a P51 20HH and it refuses to update to Windows 10 1903 due to a complaint of an old version of the Intel RST driver.  I tried following all the instructions to update the driver at both the Intel site, and the official RST driver here on the Lenovo site for P51 downloads.  None actually did anything.  They appeared to work, but actually didn't do anything because the driver update software didn't see any hardware to update.  I turned on debug output on the driver update script and it basically said nothing was applied since there was nothing to do. In my case with the P51 20HH, the driver files are all there but there is zero evidence (Device Manger, etc) that any of them are in use.  I don't have Optane, RAID, etc.  Microsoft update sees the driver as an old version so it won't do the Windows update.  Meanwhile, the Intel driver install packages don't see the driver as usable, so it won't apply the update!  It is a lock out.  So, my solution for the P51 20HH was to rename C:\Windows\System32\drivers\iaStorA.sys to something else.   Proceed with caution with this solution, because if your machine is really using RST, this could cause your storage to become inaccessable, which might put you in a bad boot loop and require a BIOS boot to recovery media.  You should absolutely verify that Device Manager (Storage controllers) does not list anything Intel.  Renaming the driver requires admin priv...

Recently Windows updated my Intel HD Graphics 630 driver. A few days later the same driver was released on Dell's driver support page.
Is there any correlation between Windows Update and Dell's drivers? Who does update the drivers Microsoft themselves or Dell needs to release the driver to Microsoft?
As this is the first time when Windows updated the driver is this how the Intel HD Graphics drivers are to be kept up-to-date via Windows Update?

A:Windows Update vs Dell Update - Intel HD Graphics 530/630 Driver

ZINGAM,
Referring to the Intel HD graphics driver.
Windows gets code from Intel for the driver and they will implement it in the OS. Dell also gets code from Intel and will release it. Also, Intel will post the driver on their site to download. You can uninstall the Microsoft driver if you choose and install the Dell update driver.

Windows Update is not telling me I need or can update my Wireless networking, but Intel's Update Driver Utility says I should and is offering the update. How would you recommend I proceed?

A:Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

I enjoy not having to press the Fn key to change the volume, brightness or media on my laptop, its one of the main reasons I bought the computer!

Windows 10 automatically updated 10 days ago (29/07/16) with an update titled "TOSHIBA x86 ACPI-Compliant Value Added Logical and General Purpose Device" purportedly from Toshiba. Once this update had installed I lost functionality in my Fn keys, and had to use the Fn key to use them. Annoyed at this change, I installed the 'HWSetup' from Toshiba which should correct the problem, but this appears to have no functionality whatsoever in Windows 10. I checked the BIOS and this is set to using the Fn keys and not the standard F1-12 setting, however the functionality is not there in the GUI.

I therefore system restored to before this update and functionality was restored. Windows 10 forced through the update again without any option to delay it this afternoon (08/08/16) and I am now without functionality again. Is there any way to fix this without having to do a timely system restore? I have updated the Hotkeys driver but still no change.

Will Toshiba update Nvidia NVS 2100M video driver for S11?

my machine S11 is almost 3 years old. In the first year there were a lot of update for drivers, but in the past 1 year there were no update.

At nvidia's official website there is a driver download page, but if I install the latest driver - it doesn't matter which one - I have several video driver related issue. So I have to downgrade to the Toshiba's nvidia driver.
I will try this one

So will nvidia or toshiba update the video driver?

A:Will Toshiba update Nvidia NVS 2100M video driver for Tecra S11?

To be honest I don?t think Toshiba will offer updates for older notebook models.

As you probably know Toshiba offers modified and tested drivers so it will be interesting to know which kind of problems do you have with NVIDIA driver.

On Windows 10 Pro, Version 1511, Build 10586, I've hidden troublesome Nvidia driver updates, using the wushowhide troubleshooter package for Windows 10.

Even with the updates hidden, the next time an update check/cycle is triggered, the Nvidia driver updates are detected and installed. Upon rebooting normally after the driver updates are installed, I see a Windows STOP error (blue screen of death) shortly after signing on Windows.

I can remove the driver updates by uninstalling the associated applications/packages through the Programs and Features control panel. I've also tried to first remove the display adapter in Device Manager, selecting the option to Delete the driver software for this device then removing the associated applications/packages in Programs and Features. As long as I do this before rebooting (after the driver updates are installed), I don't see STOP errors and I can then install an older Nvidia driver that works without STOP errors. If the driver update happens to slip in unnoticed, I can reboot in Safe Mode, sign on and proceed with driver application/package removal, then reboot normally.

The latest (but older) Nvidia driver published by Dell for this laptop apparently works fine (no STOP errors):

But the latest "compatible" Nvidia driver from Windows Update produces frustrating STOP errors, resulting in a largely unusable system:

I've also tried this method to blocking/hiding the Nvidia driver updates, but the result is the same: W... Read more

A:Can't hide NVIDIA driver update in Windows Update

I'm cautiously optimistic I found a reasonable workaround (requires the Pro edition of Windows), by using AppLocker to disallow executables signed by Nvidia to run. This way I can leave the Windows Update service enabled and don't need to constantly fight the Nvidia driver updates that I supposedly "hid" using the wushowhide troubleshooter. For anyone else in this or a similar predicament:

Right-click the Start button and click Run, or use the + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command dialog.

In the Open text box, type gpedit and click OK.

Expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Application Control Policies > AppLocker > Executable Rules. Right-click in the pane on the right and click Create New Rule... In my case, I created a Publisher rule with action Deny for Everyone, and used an Nvidia driver installer file as the reference file to capture the Publisher information.

Create exceptions as necessary. Since I want the older (already installed) Nvidia driver of my choice to function, I created a wildcard Path exception for the Nvidia Program Files folder.



Hope this is helpful...

I reinstalled with the 3 toshiba Windows7 discs, all went smooth except for when I tried to update the OS with Windows update, I believe since it is a replacement drive you need a special driver from Intel to enable Windows updated to be communicated with and downloaded, after getting some GREAT help with member hssonline, he found the direct link to update this HDD, and here it is:

A:Can A Printer Firmware Update And/or Driver Update Be Reversed?

You can go to Device Manager and find the printer and in properties it gives you the option to "roll back" the driver to a previous version. A firmware update and driver update mean 2 different things, to me anyways. My understanding is a firmware update offers "improved" instructions to the onboard chip of the device. What does HP say about the problem?

Hi,

Concerning: auto-Windows Update versus Toshiba TEMPRO

New Toshiba TECRA A580-C (20170517)

Auto-Windows Update: on
Toshiba TEMPRO preinstalled: on

Windows Update shows "Windows is up-to-date"
TEMPRO shows messages to update drivers
But these drivers are older then my purchase date (20170517)!
Some drivers try to delete other software, and I do not know if they also install the replacement software... so will my new portable still work...

I do not trust at this Toshiba TEMPRO system !

First time poster and member. I was searching for Windows 7 Update Won't Start or Windows 7 Update won't run.

I had just restored the above laptop via the Restore discs that you can burn from the laptop. Upon completion of the installation I attempted to run Windows Update and received the following message. Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You may need to restart your computer.

Now, the case was that I was restoring the system because I had replaced a defective hard drive with a brand new one, and therefore it's a safe bet that there was no virus, malware, or such. I searched for two days and found lots of ideas of how to fix it, but became very frustrated at some of the complex fixes, although they may very well fix a particular issue.

Anyway, I skipped all that and went to Microsoft's website and downloaded the Windows 7 SP1 ISO and mounted it to a virtual drive. It installed fine and now windows update works correctly.

I figured I would go ahead and post my problem and solution because I'm sure there's plenty of others that have had or will have this problem. This does not give an answer as to why it happened, but it certainly gives a solution.

Below is the screen that appeared in the beginning.

A:Toshiba Satellite L675D-S7052 Laptop Windows 7 Update Will Not Start

Sounds like the system restore discs that were created have gotten corrupted, which can happen. Even burning the ISO can get corrupted, either bad sectors on the disk, files missing or skipped any number of things.

Like most of us on here, we prefer the ISO and doing a clean install with out all the factory installed bloat-ware that can hinder and slow a system down.

Hi, and thanks in advance...

Much of this is a repeat to other threads, until the graphic driver problem at the end...

(I also have an Ubuntu partition.)

I'd left my mp3 player plugged in overnight + an Asus Xonar DAC in a usb hub, when Windows wanted to do an update and conflict over drivers ensued. Strange, because I've selected for notification before updating. Also, have not been successful installing any new updates since the end of May. Was seemingly a common problem, I checked into it, too busy/lazy to pursue and succeed. This part is confusing...?

Woke up to blasting fans and unplugged everything peripheral. First, tried setting back to restore points prior to that night - twice. Could restart in Safe Mode and with networking. Then, could restart normally - but, shutdowns after 20 minutes or so.

Got crash logs, saw driver conflicts (not found) - saved.

Came here, read threads, did restart at Last Known Good Configuration. Restart - Nvidia Geforce driver not found. Went to Asus site, downloaded and installed driver (not lastest version, but last approved version and not much later than one that was installed).

It then went into a system cycled start/restart/etc. attempting to find driver, fix itself - forced to do shutdown to stop it.

Restarted this morning in Safe Mode, followed your instructions for posting. It's been running in safe mode for about 20 minutes now.

Hi,
I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number 8.15.10.1590. So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

Does anyone else with a HP23se All-in-One PC using Windows 10 operating system continue to have problems with driver updates?  My computer doesn't appear to be compatiable with some driver udpates and support has told me that I will have re-install old drivers every 14-15 days for the system to operate properly.  I've only have the computer for 6 months and this has been an issue since the first month.  I'm interested in knowing if anyone has found a solution other than calling tech support each time.

VGA driver Update for windows 10

I have upgraded to Windows 10 from Widows 8.1 (pre-installed) , on my "ACER Aspire E1 472P- 6491" laptop by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer and successfully activated Windows 10 .

As per ACER ( Acer | explore beyond limits ) , the VGA driver for windows 10 should be updated ( downloaded & installed ) to ?NVIDIA VGA Driver 10, ver- 18.13.5350? . The Laptop "ACER Aspire E1 472P- 6491" has got ? INTEL HD Graphics Card ? .

I want to know if ?NVIDIA VGA Driver 10, ver- 18.13.5350? will be suitable for the INTEL card/hardware ? Will this not create any display or other problems later . I have come to know that many people have faced problems after upgradation of BIOS & drivers. Shall welcome comments from experts and/or someone who has upgraded VGA drivers after Windows 10 installation . Thanks

A:VGA driver Update for windows 10

I usually let Windows sort out the drivers during the upgrade and let it run for a while. Often the default choice of driver by Windows will be fine. Certainly in your case the nVidia driver would not be the right choice for the Intel graphics card.

Help.
I was at the Windows Update site and a new driver was available for my ATI Video Card. I downloaded the update and when I reboot I get the New Hardware found. The wizard starts but no new driver is found no matter where I look. Cancelling the Wizard does no good as it keeps popping back up (7 times). Now I have seven "?" devices. Every reboot brings the New Hardware scenario back again.

Where can I find the files I need to delete to resolve this problem.

Thanks

Lots of reasons for a slow computer. it might need more ram, disk cleanup, defragged, or a lot of stuff in the documents folder that can be moved to another media like a cd/dvd etc.if the drivers are working fine theres usually no need to update them. but you can go to the website of who made your computer and see if theres newer versions available.

People,

My video card is an nVidia GeForce4 MX 420; & I've had some performance problems lately related to a digital audio multitracking app upgrade (SONAR XL 2.2 > SONAR4.) Because of a more graphic intensive design, normal functions (scrolling, navigation, playback, etc.) bogg down redraw & slow overall operation.

Wanting to have the latest video driver, I went to the nVidia site & downloaded v6.6.9.3. This was three weeks ago.

Today, Windows Update kicked in; & a scan of my system revealed I needed the latest Windows video driver for the nVidia GeForece4 MX 420...v52.16 ???

So my questions are:

1) First of all...why the difference (in #'s) between the two versions? (are they different?)
2) Does the Windows Update function for this area kick in because my machine came with this video card from Dell...as installed in the new machine? (or...does it somehow recognize the Dell OEM XP OS?)
3) Why is Windows prompting me to download this driver anyway...doesn't it recognize the driver from nVidia as the latest version?
4) Which is a better driver (Mfg. or Windows)?

Thanks,

A:AGP Driver Update: Mfg. or Windows?

I almost never use Windows Update to get driver updates. The latest and best source for a driver is from the manufacturer. In this case its NVIDIA. Microsoft does not always have the latest driver listed in Windows Update and their method of determining version numbers is badly flawed. The drivers on Windows Udpate are still supplied by the manufacturer(NVIDIA).

Your new driver is 66.93, the other is 52.16 so your current driver is newer. Now newer does not mean better. You can choose to install the MS provided driver and see if it resolves your issues.

Nvidia also lists older drivers for download, users of older cards sometimes find they work better then new drivers which are aimed more at new video cards, the 52.16 is listed there as well:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html

Also, see if you have DirectX 9.0c installed. Go to Start -> Run -> DXDIAG and see what version it lists. You can also run through some video and sound diagnostics there. DirectX should be listed as a Windows Udpate but not a Critical one, run the Custom scan at the Windows update site.
