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.)

I have a set of HP Z210 Workstations with E3-1245-V2 Xeon Cpu's, SSD boot drives and varying sizes of memory from 8-16GB 1600Mghz DDR3 ECC. We use Windows 8 Enterprise for these machines, with Hyper-V enabled.
We get regular driver failures from the 2 sets of USB controllers on the machines (Mainly and issue for the KB & Mouse) that can only be resolved with a full power down (not restart) and a power up. This happens at least once every 1-3 days per machine.
I had gone through the HP support, but they have advised this isn't an issue on their side, and I had agreed all along. I was just hoping to get some traction by notifying them. Anyway, after a lengthy trouble shooting session, we found that once Hyper-V
was enabled, the fault arose.
As it was an Intel chip, they I asked them. They advised that on Windows 8, the drivers are supplied via windows update and that it was not their issue.
So, how can I get this resolved? Not through HP or Intel, surely through MS? Maybe not. Disabling Hyper-V is not desired as I the teams with these PC's are developers and require local visualization. Also, we have templates ready for Hyper-V, I don't really
want to remove Hyper-V and use Virtual box or VMWare workstation. but I am at wits end with the fault and lack of help from the vendors.
Please help.

A:Hyper-V causes Intel(R) Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller driver to fail

I have found a work around for this fault with the USB failure - ENSURE YOU POWER  THE MACHINE OFF - DO NOT RESTART.
Its almost like the restart doesn't initialise the device correct, thus causing a failure.

I recently upgraded my HP p6608f desktop to Windows 10.  I am having some issue that have pointed to the Ethernet adapter.  In Device Manager it is identified as Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.  I would like to download the latest driver for it.  HP does not support my computer for Windows 10 therefore I would go to Realtek for the driver.  http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=13&PFid=5&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTy...On the Realtek site they list identifiers for the controller such as RTLxxxxx.  How do I know which controller mine is so I can get the correct driver?  I will mention that on another computer I also have a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller and it has driver v. 10.1.505.2015 which seems different than what is shown on the Realtek site.

Hello friends,

I'm having problems trying to install Windows 7, hopefully you guys can help.

I own an HP Stream 13 like this one here: Amazon.com: HP Stream 13.3-Inch Laptop (Intel Celeron, 2 GB RAM, 32 GB SSD, Cobalt Blue) with Office 365 Personal for One Year: Computers & Accessories

It came with Windows 10 pre-installed. I get free access to Windows products via dreamspark through my school. I decided I wanted to download Windows 7. I got through the setup and ended up at the partition part where it says:
"Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [Intel SD Host Controller]. Click 'Load Driver' and load the required device driver."
I have tried downloading Intel's automatic driver detection utility thing, but that did not work.

I have also tried Shift+F10, diskpart, list disk, sel disk 0, clean. But it came with an error in the command prompt that says:
"Virtual Disk Service error:
Clean is not allowed on the disk containing the current boot,
system, pagefile, crashdump or hibernation volume."

I'm at a stump. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Uni,
W7 likes to be installed as No1, even on a virtual Drive.
Your best bet is to install 7 and make 10 the virtual,
BUT
if you only have 2gb Ram, then you'll have to use 32bit versions, or buy more Ram

The drivers should available via the HP website for that model

Hi,
I'm looking for driver for Intel SD Host Controller device, a part of Dell Inspiron 14 3452, for Windows 7 x64

Please help with finding the driver.
 
What I checked:
1. Intel and Dell driver download resources, including www.dell.com/.../advanced drivers for chipset, including extraction of drivers from all relevant driver packages.
2. Intel's and Dell's Update apps to find drivers.
3. Whatever Windows 7 installation app gets from the internet when pointed to go online at the start of Windows 7 installation, as there is an option to get drivers from internet at the beginning if Widows 7 installation is running from under Windows 10.
4. Alternative websites and forums for drivers.
5. Driver packages from other vendors for their laptops using likely the same hardware.

This was not really an error message that popped up, it just was a "statement" that said it

updates, cleaning registry.
I checked and there are no updates for this driver, it is up to date. I scanned the registry and swept it and I'm still having the problem.

Can I fix this driver? Should I do a restore to an earlier date? This only started happening a day or so ago.

Hello guys, first time poster here

So i'm using a Gateway nv78, its a pretty cheap computer. It uses the above mentioned 4 series chipset integrated video card. Now the problem im having comes to the drivers and how it effects my game playing performance. i recently wiped my hard drive because i was planning on selling the pc, however i dont plan to sell it anymore. Now, my previous display driver had allowed me to turn my graphics settings down really low, thus allowing me to play (starcraft 2) at a playable FPS. now with my computer being essentially reformatted and using the drivers suggested by gateway, i can't adjust these settings to a low enough point to allow me to play these games. I've tried installing what i remember to be the driver i had before, but it is now telling me that said driver is not compatable with my machine, and that i should use the manufacturer's drivers.

now if anyone understood all of that, and can perhaps tell me how to get better drivers, or bypass the error of not letting me download these alternative drivers.

I'm clearly a tech noob, so any information you guys can shed would be MUCH appreciated

Hi! ericw616, welcome to 7F

Do you still have the 7 OS on the system? we'd need to know the model, Starter, basic, Home Home Premium, pro, ultimate?

How serviceable is the notebook? Does it run pretty well?

Did you save back-ups?

If you haven't done too much with it you might be able to recover some files by using a file recovery app like PhotoRec - CGSecurity To get some information back. I wouldn't use those files, but it might give you enough info to jog your memory to where you could remember the right driver, and then you could go back and re-download it to re-install.

The driver page for your NV78:
Downloads & Support Documents - Notebook / NV Series / NV78

Intel's site, but there again you would need to know the make of OS to match up the proper drivers:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Sear....aspx?lang=eng

You could use this to identify your chipset :

Running Windows 8 on a Dell laptop, I've attached a log file with all my computer's info.

The issue I'm having is that my Integrated Graphics won't update even though I'm using a signed driver from intel (This)
As you can see this driver is v9.3.0.1026 from 11/06/2012 while if you check my log file you'll see that I'm still on v8.15.10.2702 from March 2012.

I tried following what was suggested over here, but that driver is older than the one I'm currently using. I think I'm doing something wrong because in the post he says the version number is 15.17.18.2555, which is way past what intel is claiming is the version number for my IGC. And when I looked through my log I didn't see anything with a version number near that...

Anyway help would be very much appreciated!
Happy New Year!

It was recently updated. Ill update my post.
And the Version number is the last number, which is 2555. I change the numbers so it matches windows 8 numbers.

Hi, I came here because there were no information about solving a problem with this Chipset (Mobile Intel? 4 Series Express Chipset Family), but I find a video that explains that we have to get an older version for this chipset, not the one that has the WDDM 1.1.

So, the first you have to do is download this. It's a Graphic Accelerator from Intel, so don't worry about third party programs. Then you just have to install it and restart your computer and you will have this if you have this options available then everything it's okay, because this means that you have the proper version of the driver. I know it's a little bit complicated to explain, but this is the best solution I have found. The last version won't let you play games like counter-strike nor run applications such as emulators for android. With this, you can play Counter-Strike, Minecraft and enjoy other features that you can't with the latest version.

I hope this can help someone in someway, because it was a little hard to find this solution.

EDIT:

I forgot to mention that you have to disable Microsoft Update, because this feature will update your graphic card to the latest version (the one that has the WDDM 1.1 thing).

This is appearing as a Acer because it contains the OEM Windows 7 installation with all of the Acer bloatware.
 
You made a mistake which probably will necessitate a fresh installation of Windows.  The motherboard has identifiers that Windows recognizes the first time it is started for the first time in the computer.  When you move a hdd to another computer with a different motherboard it will see a different set of identifiers which can cause the hdd to either not boot the operating system or create problems like you are experiencing.
 
In the future, when you go to move a drive with Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1, or Windows 10 you need to generalize the operating system.  This will remove all of the current identifiers.
 
 If you run sysprep on the HHD/SSD with Windows 7 or 8.1 before using it with another motherboard you should be be able to boot from it without any complications. You want to remove all hardware identifiers from the HDD/SSD, this generalizes the drive.

That must be a fairly old motherboard. The ICH7 chipset is pretty old. This "hardware" is the I/O Control Hub and the LPC portion handles legacy devices such as floppies. The drivers for the chipset would have been provided by the motherboard manufacturer on a floppy or disc. You might try the SFC Scannow command to make sure the driver isn't corrupt. Or you can try and let Windows find a driver by clicking on "Update Driver" but I doubt one will be found.

SFC Scannow Command: SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I forgot to mention that Intel might have universal drivers for the chipset but these often don't implement special features of the motherboard. The best source for chipset drivers are from the motherboard manufacturer.

Hi,

I just bought a new Dell Inspiron 660-4858. Service tag-number JPYXD5J. It originally came with W7, but I installed Vista Ultimate x64 on it. Now there are several drivers not working (when looking in device manager). I managed to solve most of them but there are still two I can not solve:

1. Network Controller. On Dell's website there are only drivers for W7 when looking up this device. According to the UKD ("UnknownDevices") software, the details for this device are:
Atheros Communications Inc
Dell Computer Corp
However, on Dell's website it appears to call the WLAN adapter (which I assume this 'network controller' is?) Dell DW1506 WLAN 802.11 b/g/n . Version of that driver is 9.2.0.484, A01, but it's only for Windows 7.
Any suggestions how I should find the latest driver for this device, for Vista??

2. Intel(R) HD Graphics Family (Dell's driver site calls it "Intel Graphics Controller" and "Intel UMA driver"). I actually did download drivers for this, supposedly for Vista. However, not thru Dell's site (they only have the driver for W7 and W8). But still there is an exclamation mark next to it in device manager, and every time I turn the computer on, this message is displayed on the icon tray:

I know it's been posted a s#!+load of times, but I figured I'd go ahead and get something straightforward- all the other posts have been in jungle English, and haven't included the proviso I'm looking for.

Anyways, my situation is that I bought my X1900GT from Newegg around Christmastime, as a present to my ainsel (ownself, for those not familiar). I've been getting kind of disappointed in it recently: It underperforms and often crashes on STALKER:Shadow of Chernobyl and some more modern games akin to it. It also runs hot as Hades.

I'm in the market for a new card. I'd like to go DX10, but the late-production DX9's (7900 series) seem to outperform a lot of the more affordable DX10 offerings (8600 series), especially at higher resolutions, due to the 128-to-256 bit difference. I could splurge and go for an 8800, I suppose, but it would be a hit to the wallet and I'd have to postpone :cough: "Aruban Getaway 2008".

So: I don't want to pass up on the new line of DX10-only Games for Windows (Age of Conan, Crysis, etc.) that have been hyped to all hell just because I stuck with price and performance instead of currency and novelty. I need some help deciding. Then again, I could always wait until DX10 becomes the vogue and buy a cheaper, but better card then.
 

A:Price v. Performance in 7-Series + 8-Series: Advice Needed

Keep what you got and see what's comming next. I have a 8600GT as a stopgap until something better comes out. There has been talk of a Nvidia 256bit card to fill the gap between the 8600's and 8800's. I can't fit a 8800 in my case, if I could I would just get the 8800GTS 320mb now. If I were you, wait for the game to upgrade instead of upgrading and waiting for the game. Your X1900GT is no slouch either.

I was using Driver Detective to update my device drivers and after installing a new driver the device displayed with a yellow exclaimation mark in Device Manager so I removed it and rebooted. I was led to believe that it would reinstall. This device is no longer listed in Device Manager. What effect will this have on my system? Also, could this be a problem with the system board? I recently installed a replacement system board before this event took place.

I'm not allowed to play M rated games. It's the worst thing in the world. I'm 16, my brothers 18, but my mom says no M games in our house. She's fine with me playing Gears of war, oblivion (a game I want SO MUCH for my new computer....its so fun....) at friends houses. Any tips? We watch R rated movies all the time...and its 10 times worse than M games (not gears of war...but still) where 'real people' get slaughtered. How can I convince her!? Any tips?

And I don't see any resolution to this, besides me going to college. =(. Its agony to only play oblivion once every 2 weeks at my friends house.
Are there any Teen games that are just as good as oblivion? Neverwinter nights 2? Or is that not active (turn based), because I like being able to attack and block ect in oblivion, unlike dungeon seige where you just click and your guy does the work.

Hi, bit of a long shot, not sure if anyone will be able to help me.

I remember a good few years back i would always use the latest SATA or matrix / RST drivers and would always update them regularly, I?m pretty sure i have had newer drivers on my laptop in the past than what i have now, i cannot find any though, every time i try to install any of the above they always say not supported on my laptop, the drivers that are currently installed are:

Driver Version: 11.0.0.1032

Date: 29.11.2011

They are very old and would like to be able to use any newer ones that would benefit me, the rest of my laptop is up to date, just not that.

Even when i run Intel software update utility it finds nothing new for it.

My laptop is Lenovo Edge E530.

I am running windows 10 64 Bit Pro

If anyone can help at all that would be great.

Ok time to write a book. First off my computer started acting funny. Nothing to far out of the ordinary for spyware/adware so i scanned and removed several objects, nothing ot major. But here in the past month my box has been acting real bad. Here in the past couple weeks has been the worst. It started with me not being able to run some programs here and there (they would crash before fully loading). Now its pretty much everything. If install something and run it it works fine. For instance. I can download and install Toribash, a small game, but the next time i run it it crashes. All of my games do the same thing. I can reinstall them and they work but if i try and play them after exiting they crash. And some of my system cleaning programs do the same. I have run hijack this and theres nothing out of the ordinary in there. Infact theres a lot less then normal (dot dot dot). I have run Malwarebyte's AntiMalware and it list off at least 4 files that it says are infected with "Backdoor.ProRat". It will not remove them without a restart. Thats fine and dandy but when i restart explorer.exe has a problem and wont load the desktop. I can fix that by killing explorer.exe in the taskmanager but malwarebyte's wont restart to clean the infection which its suposed to do before windows fully initializes.

Hello.Backdoors are nasty and saying that it affects explorer.exe is another sign that it's a very nasty infection to deal with or have on your machine.Backdoor ThreatIMPORTANT NOTE: Unfortunatly One or more of the identified infections is a backdoor trojan.This allows hackers to remotely control your computer, steal critical system information and download and execute files.I would counsel you to disconnect this PC from the Internet immediately. If you do any banking or other financial transactions on the PC or if it should contain any other sensitive information, please get to a known clean computer and change all passwords where applicable, and it would be wise to contact those same financial institutions to apprise them of your situation.Though the trojan has been identified and can be killed, because of it's backdoor functionality, your PC is very likely compromised and there is no way to be sure your computer can ever again be trusted. Many experts in the security community believe that once infected with this type of trojan, the best course of action would be a reformat and reinstall of the OS. Please read these for more information:How Do I Handle Possible Identify Theft, Internet Fraud and CC Fraud?When Should I Format, How Should I ReinstallWe can still clean this machine but I can't guarantee that it will be 100% secure afterwards.

Hey All,

I had Avast at 1 time and ran that with Adware and SpyHunter. I have windstream as my IP and they were offereing McAfee Security Center program so I thought it would be great bundled up and not as much hassle( YEAH RIGHT! LOL). I havent been all that happy with McAfee due it blocking emails that are legit, and when it does I have no way of letting them through at that point. I've messed several business and personal emails due to this.

But if I was to delete it and go ala carte, what would be the best thing one's to get for maximum protection? I still run Adware, but here lately I havent been able to get it to update. It says it cant connect so im 74 days out of date as of this writing. When suggesting security programs Im also interested in some kind if site protection for my kids eyes. This 1 in McAfee does it sometimes and sometimes not. And then it blanks out some pics that I know are fine.

So if you were me, what would you install and use?

I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what exactly is going on with my computer. A virus seems the likely source, but I am not entirely sure.
When opening certain programs I receive the MS message:

"Windows can not access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item."Click to expand...

I am not trying to open more than one application or shortcut at once and I am the administrator on this PC.

The last application this happened with was iTunes. The program has been installed on my PC for almost a year and I've always updated it - Though not frequently. I went ahead and updated it this last time when prompted and installed with no problem. When I tried to open it I received the message listed above.
This also happened with Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer when I downloaded and tried to install that. Most applications work fine, there's just a few of them. It seems only the ones I have downloaded or updated recently - As not all of the programs / files I have downloaded have become infected.

The strangest thing, to me, is when I am viewing my programs in Windows Explorer the 'Program Files' folder's text is green. Then, opening that folder all of the infected programs also have green text for the foldername/filename as well. That means they're encrypted?

A:Suggestions needed!

The CPU choice should be made in consideration of what you need it for and also how long you expect it to last. A beefier CPU would last you a few more years. That's because every year they make speedier CPU's and software writers write software to make maximum use of the CPU. That's why machines feel slower later in life because you upgrade software to the latest version.

Ok here's the challenge: I am a cellular dealer and I'm trying to create a spreadsheet that will produce the lowest monthly total bill for the customer by suggesting a rate plan combination. There are only 3 rate plans that need to be considered.
Heres the scenario: A customer, lets say 'Acme Trucking', will provide me with their current bill. They have 22 phones active on their account. I would like to input, the total number of phones, the peak minutes needed, and the DC Minutes needed. Once the data is imputed I would like to see the most economical way to set up the account. These rate plans pool peak minutes together and these plans pool DC minutes so the total accumulated minutes need to cover the imputed amount.

RATE PLAN 1: $49.99 - 500 Peak Minutes - 250 DC Minutes
RATE PLAN 2: $39.99 - 300 Peak Minutes - 250 DC Minutes
RATE PLAN 3: $20.00 - 0 Peak Minutes - 100 DC Minutes

I hope this is clear enough, I hope this makes sense?

Anyone who can accomplish this please reply or message me with questions.
 

A:Challenge: Advanced Excel Help Needed - Can this be done?

Yes.

When you get the info from the prospective client, will you already have total peak and DC? Or will you be needing a location in the workbook to sum the minutes?

Is it okay for the workbook to contain a couple macros? Don't worry, on your side, they'll just be buttons to push.

Hello there....I'm having an issue with a remote site connecting to the local network.
Here is what I have....
1 Active Directory Server (Locally Located)
1 SQL Server (Locally Located)
1 Terminal Server (Locally Located)
1 Cache Controller (Remotely Located)
1 FTP Server (Locally Located)

All running Server 2003.
All workstations are running XP Pro SP3.

We have an office here locally and another in New Jersey.
We are connected to each other by a VPN Tunnel.
The PC in that office had a significant HD failure requireing a replacement. But I was unable to recover any settings or data from the old disk.
The PC has been shipped back and setup on the network. The computer connects to the network and can access all network resources. So the tunnel is working fine.
Here is where my problem lies. The manufacturing software we currently run, connects from the SQL server. All the executables are located on that server and the ini files are linked to the SQL database here locally. So when you try and connect to the manufacturing program, it takes several minutes to load the program...Which it hadn't done in the past.
So I made a copy of the executables to the local PC, the program starts up quickly, but takes a significant amount of time to connect to the database. Now this hadn't been an issue in the past, and I'm trying to think how it might have been configured before the failure.
