Win 7 PC freezing everytime installing Ralink RT61 Driver

Q: Win 7 PC freezing everytime installing Ralink RT61 Driver

Hello
I just reinstalled my advent sq9204 pc with windows 7 32-bit. But when it was complete there was a red cross of the wireless networks icon. When I checked Device Manager, it came up as Network Controller with a yellow triangle. I went onto the manufacturers website to download the driver for the wireless pci card, and when I came to install it my entire computer froze, with the only way it being able to work again was system restoring it via startup repair.
I downloaded the driver from a different website for ralink rt61 turbo wireless lan card but the same thing happened.

I tried this forum RT2561 and similar ones (RT2560, RT2500 etc) and tried the top post link and also the second post oldest driver but both do the same thing.

Please can anyone advise.

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 spotted what looked to be a solution to my problem of upgrading the driver for RT 61 turbo card from Vista to Windows 7 and I had further queries. It occurred to me that any discussion might be better in this "drivers" thread rather than the " hardware" one, So I wonder if I can take the liberty of repeating my questions here. The initial query from Gamer 1238 was:

I have a problem with my Ralink wireless card. windows "says" its fine but it doesn't enable (on windows 7)

It might be a driver problem i'm not sure...

I have the latest driver for it too its a Ralink RT61 Turbo Wireless Card chipset is 2561/RT61

if you know of any drivers that will work with windows 7 please post here and a link to the download so others like myself can fix this problem once and for all

Gamer 1238 finally found a driver and kindly posted a link which I have saved and my further questions are:

Although this thread is marked problem solved, I wonder, as a mid-80 year-old non-techie, if I could take it a little further. The Windows 7 upgrade advisor tells me that I should save an upgraded driver for my RT 61 turbo wireless card and install it after installing Windows 7 (after upgrading from Vista). I cannot find anything on the Ralink Technology web site which helps me but I came across this thread which seems to mirror my problem.

Accordingly, I downloaded from the link Gamer 1238 kindly supplied and saved it. Am I right in thinking that I can now in... Read more

Right, my wireless card on my desktop was working fine until i had to take it out to test another motherboard out, i slotted it back into my pc and it would not recognize it or install the the drivers automatically.
i found a driver and started again but now every time i restart my pc i have to reinstall the driver for my card to work!!!
big help needed!!!

A:Ralink Rt61 Pci Explain This!!!

The need to keep re-installing the driver after restart usually indicates that the driver isn't the right one. It's either not compatible with your Windows version or not the right one for that wireless device.

Hello!
I have a Win7 Pro x64 PC and use it to host my home network via a Ralink RT61 wireless card.
For a year, the host PC has been crashing if I put the wireless card under any "strain" i.e. download anything larger than 5MB via the wireless network using my Vista Business laptop.

Today the wireless card's driver was updated automatically (from version 2.1.0.0 to 3.0.9.1) but now the wireless card does not work at all - I cannot connect to the wireless network from either machine and am asked to "(ICS) Select WAN Adapter". Neither of the 2 options selected enable the wireless card with it's new and "improved" driver..
If I roll back the driver, I can immediately access the WAN via the card but have the same freezing issues that have plagued me for months!
Pu-lease help me out here!! I have been looking for a solution to this problem for a year now...

1. Are there any new developments?
2. How do I stop my PC from crashing?
3. Why do I have such hassles trying to network a Vista and 7 machine?

I came across a blog claiming that 4 x 1GB DDR3 RAM chips may be causing the wireless card to crash the PC. Is this true?

Thanks in advance..

I have found the thread by "Gamer 1238" about Win7 X64 driver for my Wireless card. Its available in Device manager, however Windows shows its disconnected, though I have active Wireless available. I tried to search the wireless network manually, it fails. Its a new card, so its certain that it will not be faulty. I can also assume that as the card is available in Device Manager, the card should be functional. I have gone through the thread "Gamer 1238", and could not find any solution to make my card working. Any help will be highly appriciated. Thanks..

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you tried moving the card to a different slot in your Motherboard?

Uninstall then reinstall the driver, I'd recommend finding the latest driver from the manufacturer's site.

You meant manually adding your SSID?

Hey.
I know many people, me amongst them, have been looking for the (64-bit) drivers for this card that will work on Windows 7. I've finally found a link to a driver that seems to be it:

About a week ago I noticed that the icon that I normally click on in my taskbar to show what wireless network connections were available was gone - I tried the "Notification Area Icons" settings to try and get it back but that didn't work- it was set to show but it just was not doing so. (The card was still functioning at this point, I was connected but just couldn't see the icon) So I decided to re-install the driver for the card, and that was the last time the Ralink RT61 wireless card ever worked.

I have tried installing the driver from the CD and a few I found on the internet and the card just won't work.
It shows up in Device Manager just like its supposed to and says "this device is working properly" but, in "Network Connections" it shows that it is "disabled" - when I try and enable it a little window appears that says "enabling......enabled" but then it never actually enables, it still says "Wireless Network Connection 2 Disabled" (not sure why the 2 is there)

I tried moving the card to a different PCI slot - no change.
Anyone have any ideas? My GF hates the long ugly ethernet cable I now have to run across the floor and over the door and into the living room to be connected to the net - any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

I have recently bought a new pci wifi lan card (Ralink rt61 turbo) and have plugged in and installed drivers. Initially the drivers the company I bought it from told me to install didn't work, but after some googling found the correct drivers and downloaded from Ralinks website. However these didn't work either.

When using the Ralink wireless utility it says that the card is disconnected, however in device manage it is both connect and the correct drivers installed and everything is perfectly fine.

I ignored the wireless utility and hoped that windows 7 would still be able to use the wireless card as past experiences have shown to be true. This case however I get nothing. Windows 7 says that the wireless card is experiencing problems, it doesn't show any of the routers that should be shown.

I have been looking around a lot and there have been several drivers that should have worked and they haven't.

I would have thought that the antenna is broken or the card doesn't work however when I use it with ubuntu instead of windows 7 it works perfectly fine without any hassle, so the card is definitely working.

Any advice that anyone can give on how to resolve this would be very welcome.

Thanks

Hey guys somebody recommended this site for me to ask about my problem. Anyway I have a problem with some games like GTA 5, Watch dogs, CS : GO in which "audiodg.exe" process continues to use more RAM after I start one of those games. This only happens when I play these games. I saw a bunch of other threads that said mainly update your drivers and check the enhancements issue. I originally installed my audio driver using Driver pack solution Ver. 14.9. But after seeing these threads I tried updating my audio driver. I tried downloading it from the official site and from a bunch of others but each time I do so and restart Windows just freezes at login screen and then I have to boot into safe mode and use system restore to remove the new driver. Right now my audio is working but I don't have the enhancements option at all. Sorry if I got any grammatical / spelling mistakes english isn't my language.

A:Windows Freezing at login screen after installing driver

Hello and welcome Chuck now can I make a very simple suggestion that you get a dedicated sound card? I run the Asus Xonar DG in all my desktops and have never had a problem and they are really cheap.
The GUI for the sound is just fabulous (or I think it is) for mixing and generating difference effects and if you are into gaming or music (like me - music) you will find the Xonar the real deal.

The other stuff you have ben trying to get rid of I am not quite sure what it is you are doing. The after market fix things I don't like that Driver pack solution as I have found they create more problems as sometimes than they solve.

Anyway take a look at this https://www.asus.com/au/Sound_Cards/Xonar_DG/ by the ay I run 5:1 systems off mine my favourite being the Logitec Z506 Surround Sound Speakers Z506 again not expensive at all and the sound quality really good.

I have an issue with my Ati display driver for some time now. Whenever i try to install it, my laptop freezes at 75%-90%. I tried everything!! Clean install, remove all video drivers with DDU in safe mode and then installing both of them...nothing works. 
If the installation reach 100% these issues occurs:1) it gives some kind of error with the message that the driver was partially installed2) my laptop freezes while restarting 3) if it restarts successfully a few more issues appear :)).... :    a) when i want to access ati control center nothing happens or it gives an error with this message: No amd driver is installed, or it was not installed properly.Please install bla bla bla..    b) if the control center of the latest amd driver is accessed i can not enter in amd additional settings...when i click it, nothing happens.
I mention that i tried with auto detect mode and manual selecting my driver from amd site.If I try long enough to delete and reinstall the driver it will finally work properly...BUT after around 2 weeks my display drivers from both intel and amd are deleted.
My guess is that the video card is dying but i am not sure. If anyone has suggestions please help ^^

Hello there!

I'm having an issue with installing the driver for my Ralink Turbo Wireless PCI Card.

I'm dual booting Windows 7 Ultimate (64-bit) on a seperated partition from Windows XP Professional.

The card appears in Device Manager as an unknown network device located on PCI slot 1, which is correct. Obviously, because I'm not connected to the internet via wireless for W7, I can't use Live Update to find drivers for it.

From the Ralink website, I found an installation for Windows 7, however once the program has been run, no driver is installed for the card. I've tried installing multiple Ralink drivers from the built in ones that Windows 7 contains, but all of them fail to install for an unknown reason.

Just wondering, does anyone have any information that may benefit me?
Thanks

Hi, I am trying to repair a friend's notebook and would appreciate some advice please. The computer randomly loses wifi connection and will not reconnect. It sometimes says it is connected to the wifi network but internet is not available. When this happens there is a small star in the wifi strength meter. This has happened with different routers in different houses. Anyway, I have looked on HP website for updated network adapter drivers and have updated to the recommended version 5.0.45.0 rev D as suggested by the autodetect on the HP website. At the moment the computer seems ok with this driver, however the fault is intermittent so I will wait and see. However, I found another page:  http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?swItemId=ob_131223_1 (REVISION HISTORY TAB) that shows a later version 5.0.56.0 rev D for the RT3290. This seems to indicate that this driver corrects the problem I am having. However, it does not seem to be listed as for this notebook. So the question is would the 5.0.56.0 driver work on this machine? Many thanks for your help.

Hi: Check the actual driver version and date by the exe file itself.  Click on the Details box. The 2016 upload date is meaningless. HP redesigned the support pages and had to upload many of the driver files again. To find out what driver you need, go to the device manager, click to expand the Network Adapters device category, and there you will see the name and model number of the wireless network adapter your PC has. Then if the driver is newer than what the current driver is, download and install the driver made for the model wlan card your PC actually has. Only the driver for the model wlan card your notebook has will work.

There's another thread about the same USB wifi device (but branded under another manufacturer) with similar problems connecting over wifi. So far, the only solution has been to remove all security on the wifi network.

This hasn't been tried yet, AFAIK - try installing the drivers in Vista x64 compatibility mode.

Also - what version did you download? Did you download the 3.0.3.0 or 3.0.7.0 drivers?

Please find attached the screenshots that depicts my current setup of the driver installation

To illustrate what you see on the image... the case is as follows:
- I have installed the driver from the vendor provided on my XP box that includes utility software
- You can see the driver location on the top part of the image
- When I plug in the Mini USB WiFi Driver, it doesn't recognize the driver and on the Device Listing -> Other Devices -> 802.11n WLAN Adapter is shown with an exclamation mark

I tried right clicking and updating the driver giving the driver location... it fails

I also tried right clicking the driver and installing it. Yet no luck

I really appreciate some help to resolve this ...

I have an HP Pavilion Dv7 Serial: 2CE1452LGF Product: A1T85UA Basically my brother in law owns this computer, and he got a virus on it. He came to me to help him. I tried to reload windows on it, but ran into an issue with the wireless driver not installing properly. I tried many times but I cannot get this driver to install. Then we ordered the restore disks from HP and they faliled to restore. I ran all three disks together, and it gives a message after running all three and trying to restore that the restore failed. I then tried to run it with just the operating system disks, and not the third disck with the drivers on it, and it still fails the restore. I want to know if anyone out there knows why this wireless driver keeps failing to install. It starts up and then just abruptly ends with no error message at all. I have turned off the firewall to make sure that was not the issue, and I am running as the administrator as well. I don't much care if the restore failed, because I have a valied copy of windows 7 Pro on the computer now and it is a valid not pirated copy. I just want to know if there is a trick out there that will force the computer to take this wireless driver so I can use the wireless and get rid of the wire connection. Thank you in advance for your help. -Sid

LOL! Something is stuck... Let's try going in the back door... Click on the network controller in the device manager. Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver.  Select the "Browse my computer for software method," and browse to the installation folder that was created when you ran the driver. That folder will be listed in C:\SWSetup\sp57538. Make sure the include subfolders box is checked, and hopefully the driver will install that way. If not, try the ralink driver directly from ralink...second grouping listed is what you need. http://www.mediatek.com/_en/07_downloads/01_windows.php

I recently reinstalled the Windows on my laptop, HP pavilion g6 1313ax. Once I did that, I noticed the wifi was not working. I opened up Device Management and It had the yellow exclamation points on Ethernet Controller, Network Controller, PCI Device and SM Bus controller. I thought it was a driver issue so I downloaded the corresponding driver from the HP support website but to no avail. The driver was not getting installed. It would open up the setup wizard and close abruptly. Then nothing happened. I downloaded the driver from the Mediatek website too, and the installation process got completed but there is still no change in the Device Manager neither is the adapter visible in the Change Adapter settings in the Control Panel Networking and Sharing Center.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  I need this very urgently.

For some reason, Windows 7 does not find any adapters on my computer. I have heard that Netgear does not support Windows 7 yet, (Aren't vista drivers supposed to work on Windows 7 anyway? I have a WPN111 adapter) so I'm using a built in pci-e Ralink for my adapter that came with my comp. I downloaded the most recent driver for it off of HP's site, but when I install it on Windows 7, it comes out saying that my system does not meet the miniumum requirements
System Spcs:
Mainboard : PEGATRON CORPORATION VIOLA
Chipset : nVidia nForce 720a
Processor : AMD Phenom X4 9850 @ 2500 MHz
Physical Memory : 6144 MB

DVD-Rom Drive : HL-DT-ST DVD-RAM GH10L SCSI CdRom Device

Network Card : Ralink Technology Corp Ralink Technology Corp
Operating System : Windows (TM) Vista Home Premium Home Edition 6.00.6001 Service Pack 1
DirectX : Version 10.00
Windows Performance Index : 5.9

These specs are fine: (I can play cyrsis on high), so I know it must be an OS capability probelem.
Any ideas on how to fix this, or should I wait until it has a driver for Windows 7?

p.s. Im using x64 if that helps.

Hi,I have HP 15-r033tx Notebook PC. I upgraded to Windows 10 - 64 bit about 6 months ago. When I upgraded to Windows 10, Wifi was running happily. Now, I have issues with wifi since 3 to 4 weeks. I am not able to connect with WiFi. I tried to perform 'Network Reset'. After network reset, I am able to be get connected with Wifi for few minutes. Then, It shows 'Not Connected'. I have latest drivers installed on my laptop. Even, I tried to remove drivers and then installed it again. It works happily for few minutes and then it says 'Not Connected'.Then, I bought Wifi adapter and I am able to get connected with Wifi. In Summary, I believe that there are issues with ralink rt-3290 802.11 bgn wifi driver only. Can some one please help me to resolve driver issue? Any help will be appreciated. FYI: My Wifi router works finely. I don't have any connection problems for other wireless devices. Which means there is no issue with Wifi router.

Hi everyone,
I apologize in advance- I don't know much about computers.
A few days ago, I shut the lid of my Hp Dv6 6108us laptop (running windows 7 home premium 64 bit) and when I opened it later, the Wi-Fi button was lit amber, signaling that it was turned off. I pressed it again to turn it on, but nothing changed. Since this has happened once or twice before (I didn't think too much of it) I just restarted the laptop, which usually got the light back to blue (=working Wifi). Nothing changed over several reboots.
So I did some googling.
My driver is a RAlink rt5390 802.11 b/g/n adapter
I've tried pressing the F12 button (which turns wifi on and off)
I've tried a hard reset
I've tried going into the registry, disabled WLAN AutoConfig and restarted.
I've updated BIOS and the chipset driver available here (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...t=5118843#N253)
I tried changing the power settings so the wifi wouldn't turn off during sleep mode, but it acted as if I had no wireless driver. Troubleshoot did nothing but suggest I use an ethernet cable.
I've uninstalled (then reinstalled after it didn't help) HP connection manager.
I did a system restore to before the problem occurred.
I finally found the device in device manager after doing the "show non present devices=1" in the registry.
--There's no enable option
--Clicking roll back did NOTHING.
--Updating the driver led to a message saying I had the most up to date driver.

Greetings, I have installed the latest driver from here http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp71501-72000/sp71571.exe .My laptop is running windows 10 x64. The taskbar icon show a red mark on the wifi connection button. when i click on the wifi connections buttons - it doesnt list even one Wifi connection. It says no WiFI networks found eventhough there are couple of active SSIDs and all other devices at my home can connect to it. On the device manager - i see the driver version is 5.0.57.0 published on 5/18/2015. Is this the latest driver? .I tried the latest driver from mediatek too, without much success.  Anybody faced similar issues?

Roll the driver back to the previously installed wifi driver.  Updating a driver just because you can is not always such a great idea, as you have discovered.

Ever since I upgraded to Windows 10 I have had continous failures of my wireless card.  I will be working normally and all of a sudden I have no connection to wifi.  A browser will show mo internet connection.  All other devices on my network have no problems.  I cannot connect to a differnt network or even try to disconnect and reconnect.  The ony fix (for a few days) is to reboot the notebook.  However in rebooting I get a systems stop failure and Windows saves a crashdump file.   The Error shown is _Driver_Power_State_Failure Searching the Microsoft site the error is stated to be caused by bad drivers.  I have no idea how to get updated drivers, MS doesn't have them and HP doesn't seem to either.
