Motherboard support CD does not support your operating system

Q: Motherboard support CD does not support your operating system

Some how my old friend managed to upgrade my PC from Windows XP to Windows 7 with that chipset driver CD I gave him. I don't know how he did it. I would ask him but he moved to Germany. Anyway I've heard you can run the setup with Windwos Vista compatiblity mode but I don't know if it is safe. Anyone know?

Preferred Solution: Motherboard support CD does not support your operating system

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: Motherboard support CD does not support your operating system

Download the drivers from the manufacturers website. The driver CD is likely outdated anyway.

I am a new member seeking help removing a Trojan virus on my computer. The virus pops-up through Windows Defender and is called "TrojanDownloader:Win32/Renos.IO". I visited the post "New Instructions for Trojan/Spyware Removal Help" to begin the process of posting my logs to get help removing the virus. However, when I downloaded the tool "DDS" and ran the application, I received an error message saying the DDS tool is not compatible with my operating system. Obviously, I cannot continue the process listed in the aforementioned thread (which is now closed)...could someone help me in finding another tool besides DDS which I can run to post my logs in this forum?

Thanks for your help!

Did you guys forget me?whatsuprob.===========Hello While we understand your frustration at having to wait, please note that Bleeping Computer deals with several hundred requests for assistance such as yours on a daily basis. As a result, our backlog is quite large as are other comparable sites that help others with malware issues.

Although we try to take DDS/HJT logs in order (starting with the oldest), it is often the skill level of the particular helper and sometimes the operating system that dictates which logs get selected first. Some infections are more complicated than others and require a higher skill level to remove. Without that skill level attempted removal could result in disastrous results.

What do I have to edit so Windows Support correctly reads my operating system as being Windows 7 Pro, instead of incorrectly thinking it is still Windows XP? There is no old OS listed in the boot area. In environmental background I changed the OS to Windows_NT_6.1 instead of what it was previously (Windows_NT), and that didn't change anything pertaining to this question.

I have been having terrible problems with system instability, flash and java crashes, windows 7 hangs, etc., and if there is someplace my computer is getting confused over which OS it has, would that explain anything?

I received a notification via Tempro that a BIOS upgrade was available. I downloaded the ZIP file (bios-20120209125153.zip), extracted the package (BIOS360_EC140_WIN.exe) and ran it according to the instructions.

The package runs, gives the "Extracting files..." progress bar then displays a dialogue entitled "TOSHIBA BIOS Package Ver.4.1.2" that says: "This BIOS package does not support this operating system."

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit on a Satellite 830R-143 with the short part no. PT32LE

Does anyone know what the problem is?

Thanks in advance for your help...

A:Satellite R830-143 - BIOS update does not support this operating system


Do you have any problems with notebook?
If not then why you want to do the BIOS? Just because new BIOS was released?
I would not change anything if my notebook would run properly.

However, the BIOS update requires the VAP (value added package).
So be sure that this VAP is installed properly. If not, update this.

I thought that all modern BIOS included support for the on boot function "F11 - Invoke Boot Sequence Menu".

I am now told that this is not the case and that many new motherboards do not support the F11 on boot option. In addition I have also been advised that some current BIOS versions have no on boot option facility at all and that the only way to change the boot sequence is to actually change the settings in the BIOS.

Can any Forum member confirm (or not) that the above is in fact true.

I have an ECS 741GX-M motherboard and I found a used Athlon XP 2600+ that I was thinking about buying, but I just want to be absolutely certain this CPU will work on my motherboard before I purchase the chip. The ECS website - http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWeb/Produc...0&LanID=9&DetailID=422&DetailName=CPU Support lists the Athlon XP 2600+ as supported, but there are 3 different versions of this chip as far as I can tell. The chip I'm looking at is the XP 2600+ with the Barton core, a slightly lower clock speed, 333MHz FSB, and the 512K cache - but this particular version is not listed on the website above, only the two versions with the 256K cache are listed. I would expect this chip to work, but I just want to be certain. Can anyone tell me for certain whether this CPU will work on my motherboard or not? Thanks.

A:Will my motherboard support this CPU?

They probabkly left it off then list, but the list does have other 333Mhz FSB Barton's listed so I see no reason why this one wouldn't work.

MSI Z170-A PRO LGA 1151 Intel Z170 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX Intel Motherboard - Newegg.com

Disclaimer, I have not bought this mobo yet, but I will next month.

I'm building a new PC that will (hopefully) be able to run the latest games at 60 fps using high/max settings. In anticipation, I bought an install disk for Win 7 professional (64 bit). The mobo I was originally going to get ended up having numerous reviews that said it did not work with Win 7, at least, not without jumping through numerous hoops first. Even then though, it seemed like there was only a small chance of things working the way you want.

So, I looked for another one and found the one that's in the link at the top. I've read up and seen a few reviews about it working with Win 7/8/10 no problem, but I can't be 100% sure.

If this mobo doesn't support Win 7 out of the box, can you recommend me a modern one that will? Here's what the other parts of the build will be like, I need a mobo that can support these:

Intel Core i5-6500, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Fractal Design Arc Midi R2 (Black) - System Build - PCPartPicker

I have an INTEL D945GCNL motherboard.there are two slots for RAM.Currently 1Gb DDR2 ram is installed in slot A.
i wish to upgrade the memory to 3gb.i recently bought a single chip of 2gb ddr2.
but the intel website says maximum supported ram for the mobo is 2gb.
when i inserted the ram the OS detected it.(got both vista & xp).
there wasn't a considerable increase in performance though.(gaming etc.)
the new chip speed is 800. first chip has a speed of 667.
there might be a problem with dual channel feature also.
is 3gb possible on this board?
shall i continue using the new chip along with the old one or shall i return the 2gb chip and get a 1gb and settle for a total of 2gb ?

A:Motherboard RAM support

From what i have read, that motherboard will only support 2gig of ram.
What has happened is by mixing the two speeds of ram, the system is running at the lower speed.
So your best bet will be to remove the 1gig stick and only use the 2gig stick.

I have just sent a thinkpad back for repair for the first time in over 20 years of owning  Thinkpad.  I have had 8 thinkpad  series laptops in my time as well as a few desktops and now lenovo phones. I am absolutely horrified with the diabolical Thinkpad support. This is meant to be business level support. I feel like I am phoning up Curry's.  Laptop sent back with hard disk in it and I am being told now that it "turned up without a hard disk in it". Now undercurrent of me lying. Original problem had not been assessed and I still don't have my laptop back after 3 weeks. Customer service agents just tell you anything they want to get you off the phone. I suppose all things come to an end but my loyalty to the Thinkpad brand is probably over now.  I am sure I am not the first. Has anyone else come across this?

We have made innumerable calls Dell to resolve the problem, but the team is unable to identify and rectify the problem. 
We have spoken to our partner account manager, regional account manager, Service Specialist and Escalation Team, requesting them to provide us with a solution at the earliest as their work is getting hampered. Our customer has to deploy the same by 1st July however they do not have any Dell Laptops functioning correctly.

Started about a month ago - pops up over and over and over and over - about every five minutes or less.  I've got a Dell Studio XPS with Windows 7 Professional.  Another forum said to just uninstall Dell Support Center (Support Center Software) - but when I try to uninstall it - THE SAME STUPID WINDOW POPS UP ASKING ME TO INSERT THE SOFTWARE.  I tried doing a Browse and it's looking for DSC20.msi.  I haven't managed to find it yet.  I have at least found \Program Files(x86)\Dell Support Center but there's so many sub-directories...
I shouldn't have to be jumping through so many hoops just to uninstall a program.  This is driving me crazy and I haven't found an answer online yet.

I paid for 3 years of support and accidental damage in home support. Together, it cost around $400 on my new XPS laptop. Afew months after I bought XPS 15 9560, I pulled out the charging cord, and a round piece of plastic that was inside the port came out too.
I called technical support at 5 pm EST, and received someone in Southern India. I gave them my information, and they confirmed that I had service. They then fought with me for 15 minutes, telling me I could NOT have any in home service. The representative, who kept calling me by my first name (no respect)  said I had to send my laptop to a depot in Texas for them to identify the issue. Finally, after I insisted, the representative, S. Sirya Kiran, FINALLY allowed me to get in home support IF I sent him photos of the damage. I did. Finally, I received an email telling me to select a date for service, which I did, 12/18/17 between 9 am and 1:00 pm .
I took time off and waited. No one came by 11:30, or called. So I contacted World Wide Tech Services. They then told me they didn't have enough techs to handle my area, so they were NOT coming. I asked why no one gave me the courtesy of a phone call and they had no answer. They said a new company, Unisys, would contact me. (I doubt they ever will.)
Is this what Dell gives people for their money as far as support and accidental damage in home service for $400? This is an outrage.

A few weeks I had some issues that were fixed with something as simple as performing a DNS Flush.

Prior to that Dell told me to back up everything on my laptop (Inspiron 1501) and restore to factory settings, which I did.

Since doing that, I get errors which cause my windows updates to fail. I'm guessing something must be missing now that I restored to factory settings. I called Dell, asked if I should try restoring to factory settings again, and they said that most likely wouldn't work. Okay fine.

Then, they told me that I'd have to pay them, (starting at $65) to reinstall my operating system. (I'm guessing that would be considered reimaging my machine?)

Anyway, if I have all of my Windows Operating CD's that came with my machine along with the Dell Start up CD, why on earth would I need to pay Dell to do it remotely over the phone? When I asked the "tech support" guy (who seemed more interested in trying to sell me their service), he danced around the question.

But in the end, he told me, that even with those start up disks (operating system and the other Dell disk) there is no way I'd be able to do it on my own.

Is there any truth to this? Why would they give me the disks in the first place? Truthfully, I'm techically challenged. Any hope for someone like me?

Anyway here's the link: http://www.e4me.com/products/products.html?prod=T3642

and here's the CPU I want to put inside of it: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103210

I know the sockets match and everything, but I read something about how my motherboard has to support Dual-Core Processors

(Btw here is my current processor: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103868 )

Hi,I have an HP PRO 3330MT which has a foxconn 17a0 motherboard. I checked the bios option and it shows secure boot, fast boot, enable/disable legacy support, and UEFI boot sources. It also has a bios version 8.09. So, does this motherboard support UEFI? Because i wanna replace the gt 730 to an RX 470. (I already checked the PSU and measure the case so don't ask about it!) Thanks before

Hello SF.

I'd like to connect a TV with an HDMI cable, in an HDMI input in the motherboard. However, it doesn't really get any sort of signal. I'd connect it to the gfx-card if it actually had an ordinary HDMI input instead of the mini-HDMI.
I tried downloading the latest vga-drivers on ASUS' website, but without luck. I've also tried to plug out the main monitor connected to the gfx-card and just having the HDMI in the Motherboard, to the TV- but again without luck.

To make a long story short, how do I use the display inputs in my ASUS Motherbaord.

(Check my specs).
Best Regards,

A:HDMI support in Motherboard

Have you looked in BIOS to make sure you have the onboard graphics enabled?

If so, is the onboard graphics listed in Windows Device Manager (without errors)?

I have an Asus M4A785TV-V Evo motherboard. It has an integrated Hd 4200, but that is not used. It also has two PCIex16 slots, one of which has my HD5770 in.
If I get a second HD 5770 and put it in the other PCIe x16 slot, will I be able to run Crossfire?
The motherboard manual says that it supports Hybrid Crossfire between dedicated and integrated cards, but nothing about Crossfire between two dedicated cards.

If it doesn't support crossfire, can I still put a second graphics card in and use it in the same way?

A:Will my motherboard support crossfire?

If your Mobo book of words says yes, then it means yes!

You cannot crossfire a graphics card, such as the one you have, with any onboard graphics native to the mainboard AFAIK... all references to crossfire refers to use of both graphics slots and a crossfire bridge connector...

mlbon21, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Will it work on your motherboard? Yes it will. Better question would be is your current power supply up to running the card?

So I'm looking at a new motherboard. It will be using an intel core i5-750 processor. I also have a gtx 260. I found a motherboard on newegg that has Crossfire support. Does that mean it will also support SLI? Here is the link.

Any help would be appreciated. Also if it isnt suggestions for a 100-200 dollar mobo with SLI support would be appreciated but It needs to run the core i5-750 as well.

A:Motherboard SLI/Crossfire support

I've been wondering the same thing myself. I have an MSI mobo which I know supports Crossfire, but my video card is Nvidia.
