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 little bit of a hardware problem that i could not resolve. The driver installs fine and works flawlessly, but after reboot, the hardware disconnects and is disabled.

Solution is to run the driver setup again, but it doesn't install anything (duration: only 2-3 seconds), just seems to enable the hardware again and it's working. Until the next reboot.

I wanted to automate this driver "installation", because it's a couple of clicks through the install dialogue every time and annoying. Is there any way to silently run the driver upon windows start and skipping all the dialogs? Like put the driversetup.exe shortcut into the startup-folder and run it with "-silent" or something similar?

PS: Before somebody asks - no, there is no newer/better driver for this, it's not supported anymore.

Hoping for some assistance Intel Bluetooth Driver is not functioning well when deploying the driver as an app via MDT Task Sequence.   I am running into issue when using MDT Lite Touch 2013. Even though I have been able to import this driver as an app the outcome is still not good. I imported it as an appI am using silent syntax "InstMultiPkg.exe" /silentThis installs as a mandatory application for model 840 G3.I can verify the install is successful from my MDT log with return code 0. Once 840 G3 does final restart, i log on, i verify in Device Manager and it says "Generic Bluetooth Adapter". I am not sure what I am missing. I am not sure if there is some dependency of installing some other HP application though I have tried this manually and it works just fine.

I have been experiencing a few misc problems with this laptop and I am well aware that it is dying but I would like to know if any of this I can do a quick fix to help holding off till I finally can afford my gaming rig. 1. Restarting and shutting down can cause all audio and brightness control to no longer work. Usually after a a little while videos stop playing as well when audio goes out. Restarts usually a guarantee to do this when not fixing something. I go to device manager and unistall the audio parts and restart to fix that. I manually install a different driver to get my brightness control back whenever it stops working. I used to have this issue with my mic but that turned out to be damage from switching to windows 10 and back which is fixed now. 2. Background returned to windows 10 default as windows 8.1 . This only happened once but my background randomly changed from my game character to windows 10 default. Original picture was even missing from where I placed it. Re-downloaded and hasn't reverted back to windows 10 default background so far. Mostly curious if the picture randomly corrupted. 3. Random things in recycling bin. I randomly noticed StarCraft2 saves in my recycling bin. The problem is I had to google the game to even know what it is. Only thing I came up with is that maybe it's the account I'm using though I may be an idiot when it comes to this.

I was trying to install Windows 7 ultimate on a Lenovo b570 that had Windows 7 Home Premium, I Gparted the drive to all unallocated, and started the W7 install, at 57%, it hangs for three hours, I take the disc out, notice fingerprints, used a CD cleaner, and cleaned it, I put the CD back in, waited for it to spin up, before hitting "try again" with the "No disc in the drive message" after hitting "try again", instead of it continuing like normal, it kept saying "The wrong volume is in the drive" despite putting the SAME disc in. No matter how many time I try to click, "try again", I get the same "The wrong volume is in the drive" message. If I hit "continue" I get a "Windows was unable to complete the installation" the computer restarts, but now I get a "Bootmgr is missing" Won't even boot to CD, not even Gparted again!
Any ideas on a fix on these various problems with installation?

Hi. Is booting from a USB flash drive an option? It would be a lot more reliable, faster and one could even inject all current updates to the install wim file (a little over 7GB to date).
Just create the bootable drive
Extract the image to the root of the drive
Boot from drive and install
If all USB ports are 3.0 or better... one may have to configure BIOS to enable legacy and use a USB 2.0 drive as there may arise a driver issue when trying to install. One may pybass these errors by also including the secure boot option to Windows 7 installer.

EVGA 790i FTW, Core2Duo E8400, EVGA GTX295 181.22s, 2x150gb WD Raptors, 2x200gb SATA, 4gb G.Skill DDR3 1600, OCZ 700W PS, HP DVD-RW, X-Fi 64mb Pro, 22" NEC Fe2111SB, Vista64 SP1

I have all of a sudden found that at my res of 1600x1200 I can no longer have any refresh rate over 60MHz. The Nvidia Control Panel sees the right monitor name but Vista does not. I try to install the drivers for my monitor and Vista says that the general pnp ones are best and won't let me. In the NCP I can see the refresh rate of 85MHz for my resolution, which I always could use until recently, but when I switch to it the resolution drops down to 800x600! I've tried refreshforce and refreshlock programs but they won't work as I have the dumb "General PNP" monitor for my monitor. The flickering is annoying and gives me a headache after a while so I hope someone can help me here. Thanks!

Are you sure you are using x64 drivers for your Monitor? Even if they say Vista compatible, it may just be for home 32 bit and not x64.

I have an Acer AL2216w and the only way for me to be able to use the Acer profile on Vista was installing the x64 drivers from a newer and different model, otherwise, Device Manager was showing me only Generic PnP Monitor drivers and the same error when I tried to install the drivers that came with the monitor's CD.

Okies, working with a Compaq Presario V5000 here.
Did a fresh install of windows XP home edition and proceeded to install the chip-set drivers, successfully. Following this I attempted to install the Video Controller driver. It gets halfway through the installation, at which point it blackscreens and I have to hardboot the PC.

The driver in question Intel 945GM Express Family Chipset, and so far I''ve used the Rev.A ,, and the Rev.A versions unsuccessfully.
I've downloaded the drivers through the manufacturer, the intel website, and driveragent.com; So its not an issue with 1 of the driver installers being corrupt. I have also tried different resolutions while installing the drivers in case the PC was incapable of handling the higher resolution it was set on during the install, after the install.

So my question is, whats causing this, and does anyone have a suggestion as to how I can successfully install the driver?

Hi All,

Not quite sure if this post should be in here but it is Windows XP related.

I'm currently trying to install a piece of software on a machine using setup.exe /s\setup.log this seems to be the only switch which works for a silent install which is fine....however when we get our PC's delivered there is an older version of this software which is installed (hence installing the new version) and half way through the silent install there is a message box comes, "Version Conflict would you like to override the existing files". As this software only has the one silent switch I was wondering if there was a possible registry entry which could be changed so that if it ever gets a Version Conflict that it will always override/overwrite?

An installation process usually requires a user who "attends" it to make choices at request: accepting an EULA, specifying preferences and passwords, etc. In graphical environments, installers that offer a wizard-based interface are common. However these installers may also provide command line switches that allow performing unattended installations.

Some unattended installations can be driven by a script providing answers to the various choices such as the answer file which can be used when installing Microsoft Windows on a large number of machines.

I recently had to reinstall a windows 7 recovery disk and recovery driver disks that were sent to me from Lenovo support saying my warranty was good until 2015 sometime. Any way little did I know that I was in the think pad department and I have an idea pad Y570 0862 any way I explained to them in detail what my system was and they still sent me the recovery disk for the wrong machine. so I did the install not knowing it was for a think pad and now realize that there are things missing plus it is supposed to be win 7 64gb and the baseband drivers are not installed and I can't get them installed. well they won't transfer the warranty from one department to the other and say that I cannot get an extended warranty through the right department because it shows there that it is expired any way I have installed the drivers that are ment for my system to the best of my ability but I'm sure there are drivers installed for the wrong system and if I run test every thing says it is OK but I'm not sure I trust that plus I have a 32gb win 7 installed when I should have 64gb and I cannot find my blue ray info in device manager it just appears that I'm stuck unless I fork out more money for there mistake and I just don't know where to go from here or what to do!

Browse that CD through Windows Explorer and se if you can copy the data3.cab to your hard drive. Chances are you won't be able, but try it anyway.

Sounds like a transfer error bewteen CD and hard drive. Could be a scratched CD or a dirty CD-ROM, so clean those as a first step.

I am working on a "program" of sorts for a friend of mine. This is the first time I've ever "coded" something this intense. Is a silent install what I think it is?

-Installs something without any user input, and the user having no idea it is being installed-

If that's what it is, how would I get NetSupport to install silently. The code I have in my not-yet-compiled batch file is:

Start patchingfiles.msi (renamed to not look like NetSupport)

It does work, when I run it. Everything else works in the code, but I need to know how to make the installer be "silent."

Thanks, Nova

With task manager opened, I see the tasks come up for 3-4 seconds and then it disappears.
I believe I have all the requirements checked on the server, but I don't know what's causing the install to fail. Also, I didn't see a way to log the install process.
Also, anyone using Configuration Manager to deploy the gateway? If so, what detection method are you using? Looks like there is no MSI anywhere.

I am having to install IE 11 on 300 remote systems.  My ONLY option to do so is via a batch script as the systems are very locked down (so please don't tell me all the other ways I should install it).  These systems are Windows 7, 32-bit (Service
Pack 1) and the download I have for them is EIE11_EN-US_MCM_WIN7.EXE.  As per the /? option, a /Q should be a "quiet" install, but it does NOT do a quiet install - it requires user interface.  I need a switch that will install this file
silently and without any user interaction as this update will take place overnight at 3:30am on these systems.  Unless someone knows of another IE 11 install file that will work with these operating systems AND have a silent switch?

Hey guys,

Sorry if this has been posted/solved somewhere else. I am trying to install applications from a server onto our local machines. The biggest goal being to be able to run installations 100% silently so that the end user doesn't even know it happened. Is there an easy way to find out which applications take which parameters/switches on the cmd line?

for testing purposes i am trying to install ccleaner and the first box that appears is to select your language. how can i find out what the actual name of this field is so i can provide the value before it even asks.

\\server\share\ccleaner219.exe [LANGUAGE = ENGLISH]

i'm assuming it is something along those lines but that doesn't work. If somebody could point me in the right direction i'd really appreciate it. thanks

-keep in mind i am new to batch file scripting-

A:Silent Application Install with Batch Files

The installer would have to support using command line switches.
You can try progname.exe /? or progname.exe -? to see if it will list any, or contact the author to see if it's supported.

If you know what installer the program is using, you can check their website for info.

Microsoft Windows Installer

Doing a search for ProgramName command line switches or ProgramName command line parameters will often locate the info.
For example, ccleaner command line switches finds the above link as the first one.

So for CCleaner you would use:
ccsetup222 /S /L=1033
to silently install to the default path in English. (222 is the latest version)

Hi Dirge, I had a similar problem with C&C Renergade. I found out the problem was that the cd was loading in a different letter than what the cd rom was, in other words my cd drive letter is D: but the renegade cd was not seeing it as that only as E:. What i did is change the letter on my cd drive to E: and it worked great after that. After loding the cd i changed the letter back to C: seeing most applications etc....see it as C drive. To change the letter of your C drive do this...go to start-settings-control panel-administrative tools-computer management, then click on storage and then disk management. Look for where it says cd rom and right click on that. You will see a small box appear and look for where it says "change drive letter and paths" click on that and change it to the letter you need. {NOTE} this is for Windows xp home, i don't have xp pro and don't think 98 or others let you do it that way. hope it helps. If that doesn't work try going onto the manufactures site and downloading drivers for the game. Take care.

Hi Guys

It's about time I laid to rest my old XP AMD 64 3400 box and built a new system. I would like to build myself a dvd player-looking system to fit right at home with the rest of my AV kit however, with this in mind I would also like it to be totaly silent.

Now we all know hard disks are not too quiet to say the least so, I thought about maybe installing Vista to a memory card of some sort. I quickly found out that although they would have the capacity it appears the fastest I can find is x133 which is roughly 20mb/s sustained -no where near fast enough.

My question is this, if you wanted to build a noiseless system without hard disks (the storage is done over the network) that didn't need much storage i.e. just enough to install plain, no frills Vista, what would you do?

The box will need to be fast enough to play 1080p video by the way.

Thanks in advance!!!

A:Vista Install for HTPC on Silent storage

Hi Stuza

I think you can be confident of silent running with nearly any new hard drive that uses the newer "liquid-bearing" technology. The flash-drives just don't seem ready-for-prime-time quite yet (especially not in any price-effective manner). If you wanted to get fancy, you could use a super-quiet notebook drive (via an adapter) - which would allow you to have the quietest, slower-spinning 5400rpm drive - yet have enough speed to transfer the picture smoothly. I'd expect that your biggest noise issues will be fan-noise (power supply, cpu, system, graphics --- these all have affordable solutions, mentioned at the popular HTPC and QuietPC sites).

Just to have a look at an example of a fellow who succeeded in building his own Vista-based HTPC rig, here's a link --- http://www.ocmodshop.com/ocmodshop.aspx?a=839
Another example of a successful build --- http://www.engadget.com/2007/05/21/i...rt-2-perfecto/ ----
and some reviews/comparisons of Vista HTPC Cable-Card boxes compared with the latest Tivo offerings --- http://www.engadget.com/2007/05/21/v...-want-to-know/ --- http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/battlemod...s-3-262359.php

At one point, some sites were recommending store-bought HTPC solutions, because of issues with licensing specifics relating to "Cable Cards". Other DRM issues have been brought up, notably (and exhaustively) by Peter Gutmann, in his cost analysis of Vista's built-in DRM --- http://www.cs.auckland.ac.nz/~pgut00...ista... Read more

If I try /s then I get the prompt but then get no screens afterwards and a reboot shows nothing extra added and nothing is listed in the process lists.

Anyone know of any command line switches to make this install without prompting? I don't need it entirely unseen I just need it automated without third party tools like auto-it and things like that.

BTW someone mentioned sendkeys with VBS I would like to steer clear of this suggestion if at all possible. I don't care for sendkeys and the people running this install I can't trust to leave the machine alone while its installing.

I want to create a disk or ISO image with they keys already in the install. That way when I install images in my VM environment I won't need to key in the install key every time.

Anyone know how to set this up? Is there a way to put the keys in the install image?

Hey all, I'm brand new to the forums, but I've used the site countless times to help solve problems I've had with various computers.

I'm usually not one to directly ask for computer help, being the acclaimed "Computer Guy" in my circle of friends and family, it takes a little too long to get an answer if I need to fix something fast, but this case is a little different.

A few weeks ago my friend bought a brand new Lenovo Ideapad Z710 laptop pre-installed with Win8. I "Upgraded" to Win7 for him, as neither of us can stand the new OS. Usually I have no trouble reinstalling drivers after installing a new OS, but for some reason his touchpad driver will NOT install.

I'm using the official driver for his computer, it's apparently a synaptics driver and it says it should work completely fine with Win7, but when I try to run the installation, I get the error "Synaptics Device Not Found!"

There are a few issues that I believe are related to the driver not being installed that may tell you guys something. When he closes his laptop lid and open it again, his mouse jumps over the screen endlessly, and he cannot use the computer until he restarts. Also, he can't turn his touchpad off, which I assume is a function that comes with the driver.

Any help or input is greatly appreciated, if you need any more information please feel free to ask.

Thanks again,

Hello and welcome Yui download the driver for 64bit 7 from here and see if it rectifies it.

Hi everyone. 
I want to create a batch file(*.bat) that can auto install some of my programs from my CD silently. Actually i own a cyber-cafe and i format my computers once a week. After formatting and re-installing XP, i install some programs like Adobe reader
10.1.1, Google Chrome, Microsoft Office 2003, File formats converter, google chrome, mozilla firefox which you know is a necessity for a cyber cafe user. Installing a program one by one takes a lot of time and somehow frustrating. So i want it to be automated.
I am posting a screen-shot so that it would be easy for you to figure out the issue. 

Thanks & Regards, Amol . Amol Dhaygude

I'm talking about: mssefullinstall-x86fre-en-us-xp.exe, which is in essential a few msi's (mp_ambits.msi, msse.msi and some other files).
I can do a silent install by using the switch /s /runwgacheck

I'd like to create a silent install with custom settings (Schedule Day/Time).

What is the best way to do that?

Regkey's: I find the custom regkey's (ScheduleDay.reg, ScheduleTime.reg) but I can't import them after the silent install (I think it's only possible by the system account?)
Can I use transformfiles?
Best regards,

I have an odd one here.  I'm attempting to set up a deployment task for our T460 laptops.  I can extract the latest BIOS file and manually run C:\Drivers\R06UJ66W\winuptp64.exe -s without issue.  However, when I add it to a task sequence in MDT, it spits out an error in the log like what you see below: [2019/5/3 12:48:47] version 30.16
OS = Windows 10 64bit
Driver Loading....Driver Loading failed !
[2019/5/6 7:46:23] version 30.16
OS = Windows 10 64bit
Driver Loading....Driver Loading failed !
[2019/5/6 14:0:18] version 30.16
OS = Windows 10 64bit
Driver Loading....Driver Loading failed !
[2019/5/6 14:27:5] version 30.16
OS = Windows 10 64bit
Driver Loading....Driver Loading failed ! As you can see, I've been poking for a couple of days...  Every time, it fails via the deployment, I can successfully run it manually!  I just keep rolling back so I can keep testing it.  Any ideas?

A:Failing Silent BIOS Update Install for T460 via SCCM/MTD

I just had another customer report this problem and the solution was to change the Task Sequence to use a package instead of "Download Package Content".  The "Driver Loading Failed" error happens when the .sys file in the 64Bit subfolder is missing.  Not sure why SCCM struggles with this but you aren't the only one seeing it.

I would like to be able to silently pass a software GUID to this diagcab, which is located here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17588/fix-problems-that-block-programs-from-being-installed-or-removed
I am our Endpoint Engineer and need to deploy software via SCCM. I have a very troublesome application that the previous crew packaged that I cannot silently uninstall by normal methods (msiexec /x {guid}) because of the way the MSI was manipulated. The
FixIt tool will however remove this software for me perfectly. 
Ideally, it would be something like this: "Program_Install_and_Uninstall.diagcab" /GUID {guid} /silent
Can I pass this GUID via command line to the tool?

Just to start things off on the right foot. I run Windows XP Pro with SP2 installed. However, I just finished cleaning my system of the Haxdoor trojan (not sure which variant). Sometime while my computer was being bent over something was installed or values were changed.

First, all my shortcuts on my desktop were deleted/removed (except my computer, IE, Recycle bin and my documents).

Second, anytime a shortcut was put on the desktop a copy would be made and it would be unerasable.

Third, my background went to some flashing spyware thingy. That has been cleaned but now my background is just black.

Fourth, my background cannot be changed. The display buttons are all greyed out. I cannot change my background at all.

Fifth, I have run Norton Antivirus, Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, TrojanHunter, Microsoft Anti-Spyware, CCleaner, and several others and nothing seems to be working. I can post my HijackThis log if it will help.

I have no idea what to do. Please help.

A:Something is seriously wrong with my background

I would recommend trying a System Restore first, the reason that you would be unable to change your backround would be a form of spyware or malware actually.

I had the same problem on Win2k3, ran all the spyware tools I could get my hands on and still idn't solve the problem.
Funny enough I couldn't do a restore because that option was also turned of for some reason (sarcasm).

if that still does not work, have you tried submitting a HiJackThis log?
