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.)

A: need update driver for windows 10 for hp laptop

Hello @fabybabyhp There are no Windows 10 driver updates for your system as HP only supported Win 7 drivers.IF you were running Windows 10 as an upgrade, you would do best to clean re-install Win 10 now. You would need an 8 GB USB flash drive and use the MS Media Creation Tool to make the media with from a different computer.https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10/ Tap the ESC key at power up and choose the Boot Options (F9) to boot from you USB media.Follow the prompts. But it could be that you can get away with reverting back to a restore point.You would still need the Windows install media to start the computer in Safe Mode.Then do the restore point to roll back prior to the update causing the issue.Click the link below and go to the section for Entering Safe Mode from outside Windows.http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03439317#AbT1 If you can get Safe Mode to boot, you can revert back to a restore point.http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03327545 Let me know if you need further instructions.

I installed Driver Utility and it was installing 2 new drivers and a littler earlier there was a Windows update popup and it had to restart so I hit postpone for 4 hours

and so I left it to finish installing the 2 drivers and I checked on it 30 min later and it started restarting and then it showed the specs for the laptop and then it gets to a menu (all black background) and the options are

Launch Startup Repair
which finds no problems

or

Start Windows Normally
which just shows the specs and ends up on this screen

I tried doing a System Restore and it didn't even do anything from that
and I ran a diagnostics and I also got nothing
so does anyone know how to fix this?

this is Windows 7 Ultimate

Safe mode. Use device manager to uninstall offending driver(s).

I am hoping someone can tell me I don't have to buy a new computer. I have an HP Pavilion dv7 Laptop 6GB. I only use it for photography editing, etc. I use CS6 and Elements 11. I wanted to try Topaz Lab's new plug-in "Impressions" so I downloaded the trial. It won't install and I get an error message stating that the OpenGL 3.1.0 that I have won't work. It says I need 3.2 or higher. I went to the Intel download center and downloaded an updated driver for Windows 7 (64 bit) but although it appears to have loaded I still get the same error message from Topaz. I have other Topaz filters that run without any trouble.

Thanks!

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)

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.

Hi,

Today I updated my AMD drivers (i.e. AMD Catalyst Control Center) from version 12 to 14.501.1003 in an effort to boost frame rates during gaming. I didn't see any performance boosts, but I didn't rollback to the earlier version. Ever since then, my laptop seems to hang after I close a performance demanding game. The freeze isn't permanent and takes between 30-45 seconds before it goes away, but it's still nonetheless annoying and might be indicative of a greater issue for my computer. In addition, I've found that every time I shut down my computer, after the "Shutting down..." appears the screen simply goes black and does not fully turn off until I manually do it myself with the power button.

I'm not sure if all these problems are stemming from the update itself, but I can't think of anything else I've done that would cause these issues.

Laptop: HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC
OS: Windows 7 64-bit
CPU: AMD A8-3520
GPU: Radeon HD 6620G + HD 7690M

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.

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.

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.

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

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 read that in "gpedit.msc" > "Windows Update" > "Do not include drivers with WU" > ENABLE

And I did, BUT, Windows Update still see drivers to update such Intel HD, Touchpad, etc.

Why?

I had updated the Windows 10 April Update on my Thinkpad X230. I use Bitlocker to encrypt C, D disks. Before update Windows, I suspended Bitlocker function on C, update all newest drivers downloaded from Lenovo for Thinkpad X230 (BIOS, Firmware, ...). After update Windows 10, I can use my laptop in some hours, then I shutdown it. However, from this time, I cannot boot Windows, it only boot on some seconds and automatically turn off. I use USB Windows to go to boot my laptop, then turn off Bitlocker in C drive, and I can boot and use my Thinkpad. Unfortunately, when I turn on Bitlocker again, my Thinkpad X230 cannot boot again. Any idea for me? Please don't tell me turn off Bitlocker.

Hi,

My cousin brought her Acer Aspire 5349 to me to see if I could help with a Windows Update problem. It seemed there were a couple of old updates that were preventing all future updates from installing and it was caught in an infinite "restart to install updates" loop, but nothing was ever installed. I tried evertyhing I knew to do, nothing worked. So, I rest the machine to factory settings. Twice. Update still will not cooperate. It installed one update for Windows Update itself, but nothing after that. It just sits there "searching for updates" on and on. No error. Just no progress. I downloaded the Update Readiness Tool, and I'm getting the same thing...Windows Update Standalone Installer says "Searching for updates on this computer..." for HOURS. No progress. Wireless connectivity is good. I even tried disabling Windows Security Essentials, still nothing.

I've tried the update troubleshooter. No luck. It gets to "Checking for updates online" and then hangs.

I'd be so very grateful for any suggestions y'all might have. I'm ready to throw it out the window.

Thank you!

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have never encountered anything like this before.  Created a clean windows 7 image did everything that we normally do to the image.  Ran windows updates to get everything up to date, did NOT get the latest drivers for the hardware.  Captured
the imaged, MDT latest version, and deployed it to a couple of test machines.  Here is where I am running into a problem...
I am unable to update any drivers on either of the machines.  Getting the same symptom when the image comes from a Virtual machine.  Checked the Group Policy to make sure that everything under the device configuration was set to no.

Dear readers, I'm your typical online gamer, so when I noticed something wrong after trying to open up R.O.S.E. Online (roseon.com) I decided to ask for assistance here.Well, R.O.S.E. Online has a patcher (an .exe) that updates the game with all the new content they implement -- it is a MMORPG after all. About two weeks ago I had no problem playing it, all ran smoothly, the graphics were in tip top shape, etc. All went well until I took an extended break away from gaming and focused on research.Anyways, today I went to open it and sat here as it patched as usual.It ran, at first, correctly like it should of. But then I was greeted with a blue screen error.WindowsVWIN32 (05) + 000012D0 Error : 0E : 0028 C02A44A8I shrugged and thought it could of been the other programs I was running (instant messangers, etc). So I closed everything down and tried again. Same problem. So I restarted the computer, and tried again. Same problem. I decided to kick up my spyware/adware/malware/trojan/etc programs and ran the usual session that most people do. One or two adwares were found, but nothing bigger. Until I used a-square 2. It located two trojans and two viruses in my Sun/Java folder (I had installed java for mozilla firefox a week back). Quickly I made sure to do away with them and all seemed well for two more days or so. Until I decided I'd like to play R.O.S.E. Online again. So, I repeated the proccess.
