USB smartphone driver failure

Q: USB smartphone driver failure

Acer 5738Z running Win 7 64 bit

New XiaoMi Rednote 3 smartphone

Plug phone into USB the first time and a driver is loaded and everything works fine

Reboot laptop and plug in phone - laptop makes bingbong noise as if it recognises the phone but the phone does not appear in My Computer.

Check Device Manager - the phone is shown but with a warning triangle.

Driver gives the message "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)"

The only way to make it work is to uninstall the device and reinstall the driver.

I've tried a motherboard reset to no avail

Guidance welcome

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.)

So I?ve done quite a bit of research and I?m down to three choices.

1. Sprint (student discount)
Price - $57.39/month
Plan ? 450 all talk minutes and free after 7PM & weekends. Unlimited Text. Unlimited Data.

Considered Phones included with plan:
* Apple Iphone 4S 16GB (2 yr contract) - $0.00
* Apple Iphone 5 16GB (2 yr contract) - $99.00
* Apple Iphone 5 32GB (2 yr contract) - $199.00

* Samsung Galaxy 3 16GB (2 yr contract) - $0.00
* HTC One 32 GB (2 yr contract) - $99.00
* LG Optimus G (2 yr contract) - $0.00

Extra Stuff: Says I can get $100.00 back with old sprint number. I do have a sprint phone and number but its not a smartphone so I?m not sure if this applies.

Considered Phones included with plan:
* Samsung Galaxy S3 16GB - $549.99

Hi,

I've been browsing the site and the internet for a sollution to my problem, but can't seem te find it. There are similar postings, but they're always just a little different. So that's why i posted the new thread.

Since a couple of days i've been experiencing troubles shutting down my PC and using my USB ports. It started when i tried to log onto my work from home. It failed and the IT guy from work told me to reinstall citrix reciever. So I did and I was able to work from home. After finishing and logging out (to get back to my own PC) I found that my USB portst didn't work anymore. I tried rebooting, but af 10 minutes of "shutting down" I got a blue screen: Driver Power State Failure with code 1000009f.

I did the following:
- tried system restore - it failed with different time stamps
- update drivers - they were all up to date the system said
- Malware Bytes, CC Cleaner, MS Essentials, Hitman pro - Did them all, had some minor stuff, fixed that, problem remained.
- SFC/scannow - no problems
- Memory check - no problems

As it is now, the only update I have left is the update to WIN10. However it has tried and failed during a few of the reboots, so that doesn't seem to be and option.

After try all different kinds of things from a lot of posts I decided to refresh my windows install. Did a lot of updating and still the problem remains. Although I now found out that USB devices that are plugged in upon startup work. Once I unplug en replug them, t... Read more

Hey, I got some BSOD problems. Do you got time & experience to help me?

I got Windows 8 at the moment, I will install 8.1 shortly. Had 8.1 before i re-installed OS when the first BSOD showed up, so I doubt that 8.1 will fix things completely.

My problems ATM!

- Driver Power State Failure
- Video TDR Failiure (nvlddmkm.sys)
- Screen freezes at start up or when I get to the desktop
- Have to Disable my NVIDIA GeForce GTX 675M to use the CPU (Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43).

Got two other kinds of BSOD before I re-installed windows but don't remember what they said, I just felt like "Hey I need to re-install my OS anyways so w/e". But apparently that didn't solve the problems.

I also gained "NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 340.52 stopped working While playing CS:GO" but that was before I re-installed windows. And now to use my CPU I need to go into Device Manager and shutdown my NVIDIA card to be able to use the CPU and use the Intel card instead. If I don't shut it down my CPU will freeze the screen for days, til I restart or I get a BSOD.

I will buy a can of air and open up my laptop and blow some dust away, perhaps that could help? Perhaps the NVIDIA card is burned/broken and I have to buy a new PC?

I've tried a few different driver for my NVIDIA card also, nothing works.

I'm no computer expert and thats why I'm here begging for help, so if someone could help me out here I would appreci... Read more

Hello,

I would appreciate any help with the following problem: the pc sometimes seemingly randomly shows BSOD with errors named in the title, I also attach corresponding screenshots. The problem wont happen if the PC power is supplied from the adapter AND there is some content running on the screen (video in VLC f.ex.). Other important symptoms are: Can not turn off the laptop. There will be endless blue screen saying shutting down,while PC already stopped working. I also can not get the PC to sleep. If i I go to sleep mode, display turns black, PC is still working on and on and I can not go back to desktop anymore.

Thank you very much for your help.

I was looking at my system logs today and found an error that is being repeated quite a lot and I would like to get rid of the darned error.

The error in the applications event loge is TrueVector Service, event 5003. The message in the event says:

TrueVector driver: Driver install or load failure: LoadNTDeviceDriver. Win32 error: The system cannot find the file specified.

I checked on the Internet and have found numerous resources indicating that TrueVector is a part of zone alarm. The weird part is that I have never had zone alarm or any other firewall installed -- Note even Microsft's within XP SP2. I have no references to Zone Alarm in my registry. My references to TrueVetor are in My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application\TrueVector Service

Can someone suggest any soluton to getting rid of this event?

I am receiving random BSODs with the subject line description.  My first stop was to the HP Support site to possibly update any drivers (like bios??).  I found many driver updates available, including 2 for the bios.  I really have no clue as to which driver updates to install, even after reading the details.  I looked for where it says recommended or required or something but didn't see it.  I then installed the HP Support Solutions and did a scan to determine what drivers it thought I needed and it came up with none.  Now I'm real confused.  Does that mean all the driver updates on the HP site are just optional?  Can someone provide a good site link to read about how to determine which drivers are needed?  Thank you for your help!

Hi all!

I have a HP Pavilion tx2000 P/N: KN966UA#ABA with Windows Vista Home Premium Build 6002: Service Pack 2.

I recently just bought a HP xb4 Docking Station for it, which uses Connector 3 for expansion.

When I first boot up, everything works fine, I'm checking email, or surfing the net, until suddely all the USB's would stop functioning and in a few minutes or so, I would get a blue screen with either a "Driver Power State Failure, or a Bug Code USB Driver" error.

I have been dealing with this issue for a number of weeks, searching online, or working with the issue myself, maybe finding some type of common application or hardware piece that might be causing it, but no luck!

I have attached the last Dump File.

Any suggestions?

Thanks and I can't wait for Win7!

Okay, so here's the deal. A while back, (like 6 months ago), I began to get the occasional BSOD. Since my computer needed more RAM anyway, I took this as an opportunity to upgrade to 2GB of RAM. However, I kept on getting the issue. Then, I installed a fresh version of Windows, but still encountered the problem. All of my drivers are up to date. Currently, the computer is "workable" but many hardware intensive activities will cause the computer to either completely lock up, or go to a BSOD. For example, I can play TF2 for somewhere around 20 minutes before I will get a memory reference error. Other times, it will crash and yield a IRQL error on the BSOD. According to Whocrashed, these crashes have been caused by everything from Avast, to the Windows Kernel, to the video driver. To make matters even more fun, I've run memtest86 for 7 cycles on both of my RAM sticks without any problems. At this point I've run out of options for what I can do. Any help is much appreciated.

I have a problem with my PC. It's worked fine for a few months now (it's new) but all of a sudden I'm getting 'nvlddmkm driver' failures which were simply making my screen blank out until it recovered. But as of today it's causing whatever program I'm runnning to stop responding (inc 3d mark advantage, if I try do a Graphics card test) and it will only run for 2-3 minutes at a time. I assume the problem has arisen with a Vista update (I run Vista Ultimate x64). I have visited NVIDIA site and downloaded latest drivers for my 2x NVIDIA GTX 285's, and double checked windows updates. I've also read alot of forums all of which seemed to be rather old and with no real solution or definative cause.

What can I do?

I opened my network connections in XP to find that I had no local area connection even though I was clearly hard wired into the router. My internet was down and I couldn't get a connection to anything.

I installed my WRT54GL Linksys router around a week ago and ever since then I got random internet connection drops over my wired connection. It happened about once or twice a day until now, as I'm typing this. I'm currently using my laptop wirelessly as my desktop doesn't have a wireless card and is out on internet. Everytime my internet dropped I didn't think anything of it and logged off or restarted my PC and it was back up. The same thing happened today, I lost my internet, but this time I decided to open up my network connections screen to find out my local area connect was gone. I logged off expecting the same thing to work as the past week not knowing it was going to fail.

When I logged back on I still didn't have internet and proceeded to do the most basic things to check for an internet connection. My laptop was connected at this time wirelessly. Anywho, I did a system restore to the day before hoping that would help, it didn't. Next I called my ISP to see if they could help.... They couldn't.

I am confused to decide which is better Samsung galaxy s4 or htc one or iphone 5 or xperia z

things want to consider first thing battery backup, then resolution then camera of course which has the best look

read several reviews and so confused please help
 

A:Which is the best smartphone to buy?

The Galaxy S4 is basically equivalent to the HTC One. The HTC One though, has a better camera and has an aluminum shell. The S4 has a more mediocre camera and a plastic shell (cheaper build quality). They both have basically the same screen. I own an iPhone 5 and love it. The OS is just becoming stale though, and Android (on the S4 and HTC One) is more for power users. iOS (iPhone) is geared more toward rookies who dont know what they are doing since it is so simple. I would take the Xperia Z off of your list since it doesnt match up.

Check out TechSpots' reviews on all three phones:
Galaxy S4: http://www.techspot.com/review/664-samsung-galaxy-s4/
HTC One: http://www.techspot.com/products/smartphones/htc-one.87473/ (I cannot find a full review on TS and posting another sites review would be considered kind of bias)

I have recently gotten a new Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone. I've never had one before. So, I'm trying to figure out how to use it so that I don't accidentally get charge for something not necessarily bad as much as like "accidentally banging your finger with a hammer". Right now, it appears to automatically access the Wi-Fi when it's in range and I'm installing free apps. Will I need to keep an eye on that so that it doesn't download apps (or additional app data) via a cell tower? (I did find a setting called "Wi-Fi Calling Settings" under which I can select Wi-Fi Prefered, Wi-Fi Only, Cellular Prefered.) There's, also, a gps on mine. I've found Google Maps, Google Latitude, Navigation, and TeleNav GPS Navigating that can use the gps in one way or another. How far into those programs can I use the gps before I start getting charged for data usage? Is there anything else I need to be careful of so that I don't end up surprised at the end of the billing cycle?

I have just got a new video card and I can't install the drivers. The CD or the software is messed up. I open up the installation program and it hangs, it just says that its performed an illegal operation. I uninstalled the drivers from my old card but I couldn't get all of them, it won't remove them because the card isn't in the machine(I know, windows is f%@&ing stupid!) I tried installing the drivers through windows but windows has out of date drivers from 3 years ago, I installed them anyway, no luck. I tried finding them on the install CD through the Have Disk option in the windows driver install but windows couldn't find them, most likely because it was looking for 3 year old drivers(my moms idea not mine). The card is an ATI All In Wonder Pro 128 and I'm giddy as hell about finally getting it, I have a Ricoh CDRW Drive, I honestly don't know the speed, it doesn't say it on the drive and I can't find the box, I would guesstimate its about 50x, I have 192MBs of ram, and an AMD Duron 800 MHZ.

Hello i am new to the website but am in dire need of some help.
My desktop as of two weeks ago hasn't been able to boot into windows 7, a Linux live CD, or the AVG rescue CD. Also it will not boot into safe mode. This started while i was playing wow and had Pandora up in the background.....i walked away from my computer to come back and see that it was off. i turned it back on and then came a window saying something about error recovery so i went into the recovery process with it not completing the process but on restart and starting windows normally, it would finally start up. But shortly thereafter, it shut off without warning. Almost as if the power was cut off.
After reading up on other forums as to what the problem could be, i have cleaned out the computer case, reseated the RAM, checked the CPU fan and the power supply fan; they all work. Tried running it with just one stick of RAM in each slot, switching the RAM sticks individually as well.
I can enter the BIOS or the boot order menu for as long as i want without any problems. The computer only dies when booting into a operating system. Also when i press the power button, it will turn off after 4 seconds but after turning it on a couple times, it will finally turn on and stay on untill i boot. PLEASE help me out. The computer cost me a fortune.

thanks for the quick replies everyone.....i think i figured it out myself. there are a few capacitors that do look like they are bulging and one had some orange stuff at the top but was very minor but definitely was leakage. Looks like i need a new motherboard.

This morning I got on my computer and went about what I usually do. All of a sudden my mouse locked up and the screen went blank. It came back on in safe mode, said it recovered from a device driver failure and wanted me to restart. Since then, it has happened about 4 more times. I did a scan, checked to make sure all drivers were up to date, went to Microsoft and updated stuff there, did a virus scan and it is still doing it. I also went to PC Pitstop and scanned there. Can anyone tell me why this keeps doing this?

When playing a game on my Connect3D 9600, after a while of running a 3d application a error message would appear saying "VPU stopped responding Ati catalyst had to reboot the VPU". And it gave me an option to send the error to Ati. I have the latest ati drivers and these gave me weird error messages when attepting to analyse the vpu. I have enclosed the screenshots of these errors that windows provided. I have used other graphics cards in the past so its not my Agp port/Motherboard.

I need help as i cant really do any 3D applications,

Thanks Alot,

definately a driver issue. Update your drivers. IF you already have, then use the ones that came with card and don't update.

Hello all
Trying to sort out my roommate's computer, but haven't got a clue what's wrong with it. It's a 4 year old Toshiba laptop running Vista, with an AMD Turion X2 Ultra Dual-Core Mobile ZM-80 processor. It's running out of harddrive space, but the typical CPU usage seems to be holding at less than 25 percent. It went in to the shop a couple of months ago, to have the CD drive re-sitted and the screen replaced. It had to go back to have the screen replaced a second time, because the one they installed had dead spots.

The screen is still giving us issues (the connecting cable seems loose). It goes black frequently when the computer is moved. Recently, things have been running slowly on the computer, namely Hulu and similar sites. I tried running Malware Bytes to see if a virus could be slowing it down, but the program won't complete. It gets close but then either the screen goes to a broken image, all colors and lines like fuzz on a TV or it goes to the blue screen and says the Driver Power has failed. Same happens if I try running a full sweep of Webroot, the spyware program I mainly use. Only Webroot stays running, so they shouldn't be conflicting. I was assuming it's the screen, but I don't like that it shuts down every time I run a scan of any sort. It's making me paranoid, I admit.
 

A:Driver Power Failure

well, i had a laptop at on time and the graphics card had two pins to connect to the screen so i could see how a similar type connection could slip. you would need to go to a shop to get those sorted out. the screen might be a loose RAM. other than that i couldn't tell you.

Hey everyone,

These past 2 days I've had the same GPU driver error causing my screen to go black for a few seconds, then light on again. That's not too bad, but sometimes my whole PC just crashes. The screen either goes black or freezes and the sound goes nuts, the best way I can describe it is if my PC was a CD and there was a HUGE scratch on it.

Smart guy that I am, I decided to revert to an older driver (from 559.06 to 559.00), but it doesn't seem to make a difference. So I thought I would try yet another driver, and now for some reason every single driver I've tried to install failed, telling me it's not compatible with my OS bla bla bla even though they're drivers recomended by Nvidia for my OS/GPU. I'm still getting the crashes every hour or so. It's pretty damn annoying.


My PC specs are as follows;
Windows 10 64-bit
i7-4790k CPU @ stock speed
GTX 970 @ stock speed
Dunno about my BIOS
4x4GB DDR3 1600MhZ RAM
Samsung SSD 250gb
530W CPU
I am already thankful for your help, and if you have any solution please babysit me through the process, I'm not that good with computers =)

The current Windows 10 64-bit driver for the GeForce GTX 970 graphics card is 361.43 (10.18.13.6143) and was released today.

You might consider selecting the custom install option and then do a clean install of the driver.

Here is my story. I upgraded my integrated ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 to a Nvidia 9500 GT a few weeks ago. One of the factors that made me get a graphics card is that I was getting Graphics Driver failures every couple days with the ATI chip. So prior to purchasing and installing the new card I used the Vista error reporting option. Then I got the new card installed it with the drivers and it works great with no problems.

I turned on my computer today and I get a message from Vista with suggestions for the errors I reported. It detailed how the ATI graphics driver had failed and stopped working properly and to update the ATI driver and basic trouble shooting. Which is kind of late because I switched off the ATI chip weeks ago. The Vista Error response also said that my Nvidia graphics driver had stopped working and then listed how to trouble shoot it. Which is something I find very weird because I have had no trouble with the Nvidia card at all. So I went to device manager to try to update the driver for the Nvidia card and it said the driver is the most up to date.

So I have the question is it possible that Vista just did a auto troubleshooting response and that's why it included the Nvidia card in it's Error response.

Compaq Presario Intel Celeron D 3.46GHz
Windows Vista Basic SP2
2GB Ram
120GB Hard Drive
Nvidia BFG GeForce 9500 GT 1GB PCI-E 2.0
BFG 450 Watt Power Supply
 

A:Graphics driver failure?

Hello. You said, vista reporting an error in graphic driver, is it just the message but actually there is no problem or you encounter a problem with the graphic driver?

If it just the message but no actual problem at all, it might be a vista bug. But if you encounter a real problem of your graphic driver, I think you can uninstall the previous graphic driver cleanly, to say like to uninstall it cleanly so the vista became like the first you installed it without any graphic driver.

Hi all-

If someone has a moment and could look at my minidmp file it would be greatly appreciated. This only happens when resuming from sleep. Sometimes it will come up with the splash screen but the login screen freezes and won't let me type in a password to login, which results in two restarts.

So over the past several days I have started experiencing several different errors. The first and most common one is my display drivers crash and restore themeselves. Sometimes however, the drivers crash, the image goes black, and it does not recover from the crash and I must reboot the machine. I have not found any program that seems to be causing the error as it seems to happen quite randomly, somtime while just browsing the web, sometimes right after exiting a video editing program or a game. There doesn't seem to be much pattern to the crashing.

Display drivers have stopped working:
However, the more pressing problem is the three BSOD's that I have had in the last 24 hours. Below is the error message post crash:

How old is your monitor? When my husband's flat-screen monitor began to fail, it exhibited many peculiar antics. I plugged my FSM into his computer, and it worked just fine (they were identical setups). If the driver is correct and up to date, then I'd suspect a bad monitor.

Since about the last couple weeks I've been having hang ups on every shut down causing me to force shut down my pc with the power button. And I can't figure out what it is. The only thing I can think it might be is a Cisco Linksys Wifi router I recently installed. All drivers and everything are up to date. There is always a yellow triangle covering my network connections in the taskbar, though, that I only noticed showing up about 3-4 days after I installed the router. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the router (who knows if its the proper way).

I get the BSOD DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE 0x0000009F on restart (if I dont force restart it). Does anybody know how to fix this?

A:BSOD driver failure

I also have a Linksys WiFi router -- and the only thing that I installed when hooking it up was the Cisco Connect software. All this does is provide an alternate way to access the router without using a Browser. I've not had any problems with the PC since installing this software.

Suggest you run MSCONFIG, disable all your startup items, and re-enable them one at a time -- to see which one (if any) is causing the problem.

I keep an old computer at the museum where I am a volunteer for all the volunteers to use, music,photo's etc. Somehow Windows 7 hp has become corrupted, everything runs at snailspace even though task manager shows nothing amiss. Anyway I brought the pc home and have reinstalled windows, successfully activated and everything is now hunky-dory. I installed the drivers from the original cd ok, but when I tried to update them with the latest chipset drivers from this forum it failed. Some part may have worked because a restart was required. The motherboard is a socket 939 Asrock 939A785GMH/128M. This is a fairly modern board for an old processor, northbridge 785G and southbridge SB710. The new chipset drivers are supposed to work with 700 series or later chipsets. Thankfully everything seems to be still working ok. All the data is on a second hdd so all that is lost are many favorites for the internet. Does anyone know why the update failed?

Win 7 won't let me install Network drivers. PITA, I can't get onto the internet. Had the issue last week and a tech guy discovered there were two IP addresses, one of which was bogus (after several hours of troubleshooting). He deleted the bogus IP address and I got on the internet. Next day, same issue. I ultimately uninstalled the network drivers and Win re-installed them and was able to get on the net. Today, same thing. This time when I uninstalled and Win reinstalled the drivers no luck. After spending a ton of time I downloaded the latest HP network drivers and tried installing - no luck. Win siad I had to uninstall the current dirvers, which I did, but before I could do anything Win re-installed them. After much searching on the net I found a Windows page that showed how to prevent Win from re-installing the drivers by changing the policy. Did that the uninstalled the network drivers. Win tried re-installing but rather than real drivers just showed a yellow icon. Tried to run the HP setup file and got an error message that the "existing" drivers had to be uninstalled!! (Checked on network connection for the adapter and it said there were no network adapters.) Win 7 tried re-installing the drivers but returned an error that they couldn't be installed due to the policy restriction. I went back into "gptconfig.msc and changed the policy back to "Not configured", re-booted and still get the message that the "policy" is preventing installation of the network ... Read more
