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.)

How can i change/fix this ?

A:Just reinstalled xp home and cant change screen resolution

You need to install your video card drivers.

Usually they come with the computer, if its an onboard one.......maybe from dell or something. Go to control panel>System>click the hardware tab>click the device manager button

Find any marks with a question mark or explanation mark on them and tell us what they are.

I was having some freezing/BSOD problem with a certain very important program and I ended up reinstalling windows. I did so from a USB flashdisk but after windows was installed a lot of drivers seem to be missing. The laptop is a custom build and I don't have the cd with all the drivers since the disk is still at home, which is across the Atlantic Ocean so getting that isn't an option either.

The most important driver that seems to be missing as far as I can tell at the moment is the network adapter driver. Device Manager isn't recognizing the following devices:
- Ethernet Controller
- Network Controller
- PCI Device
- SM Bus Controller
- USB Controller

Windows Update isn't finding any drivers for those devices and I can't download them manually either since I don't know what I need to be looking for.

Any help is greatly appreciated since I've already been 2 days out of commission with the previous BSOD problem before I reinstalled windows. Let me know if you need me to supply any other information.

Thank You.


I saw in another thread it was asked to upload a dxdiag file so I attached that.

Hi everyone,
Just yesterday a strange thing happened to my computer. My computer was on but my monitor had gone into standby mode because it could not detect a signal. After turning it off and then on again it came back on but the resolution was not at what it should be (1680 x 1050 widescreen).
I'm running Vista, so I went into the display settings and discovered that the maximum resolution I could set was too small (cant remember what it was exactly) and made everything on my screen jumbo sized.
So I did a bit of googling and discovered that the video driver could be to blame, so I uninstalled my NVIDIA and re-started the computer and was able to put my resolution back to my normal 1680 x 1050. Problem now is I cant do much in the way of graphics / video which is really annoying. I need to have the video driver but I also want my normal resolution!! I have tried downloading the latest driver made for Vista from the NVIDIA site but this still does the same thing.

Any suggestions?

I tried using Driver Sweeper as was recommended for someone having a similar problem that I was having, after running the cleaner and rebooting my monitor resolution is completely screwed up and the screen movement controls on my monitor are now unavailable. I used the Restore function and then rebooted, but the resolution has not been fixed and the monitor controls are still disabled.

EDIT: I re-installed graphics driver from the manufacturer and the resolution is normal again.

I bought the game Shogun 2: Total War from steam and it kept crashing on startup and someone suggested updating my driver. I went onto the NVIDIA website and downloaded the latest driver, the only thing is that I logged on and my laptop screen resolution has changed from HD 1366x768 to 800x600 which is really odd. I went through my control panel to re-adjust this using the resolution slider they have but the maximum this will increase to is 1024x768 and I really don't like it!

Any information regarding this problem will be really helpful and I thank you all in advance.

+ I know this will make anyone reading this sigh but I didn't make a backup of my previous driver, which I know was very silly of me but I didn't realise new driver updates cause problems. I know, I'm kicking myself!
+ From what I can see there is no other problems regarding the new driver.

I have to quick here but I had an 'old' computer hanging around my house.

Atom Processor

I installed Windows Thin PC on it, a more 'compact' version of Windows 7. All the drivers automatically installed but the VGA driver doesn't work.
Basicly when I [Right Click -> Screen Resolution] the box with the resolutions is grey and stuck to 800x600.

I know it can do 1024x768 'cause it did so on XP but I had battery/ACPI issues. So I moved to Windows Thin PC.

I have tried a number of regestry hacks but nothing works...


PS: Its an Asus Eee PC 900

Its a driver issue, get hold of the right driver and install in compatibility mode if required. No reg hacks should be required.

The issue is installing vista and then trying to update the Nvidia drivers for the 7800 GTX 512 only to restart and have a blank screen. You hear the startup sound, but nothing.

Basically I racked my brains trying to find a solution online for this problem, installing the drivers, restarting a million times, safe mode,etc. Now that I found the resolution, just thought I'd share so it may help somebody else who is on the verge of going crazy.

All you have to do is do another upgrade install of Vista and all is well. Updating the drivers after that is not recommended until Nvidia decides to get off their asses and make a compatible driver.

Seems like a logical resolution, but you'd be surprised how well it eluded me.

Hi. I'm new here and this is my first post. I looked around a little and found one other thread with a similar question, but the question wasn't really answered. I can't find anything on the net that doesn't confuse me so bad it makes my head hurt, so I thought I'd try asking here. Thanks in advance for any answers I get.

I will try and be as thorough as possible, although the resulting question will be simple. I'll start out with why I am asking the question to begin with.

So I am trying to play a game I used to play nearly ten years ago. It's a free online game called Continuum/Subspace and there are user created "zones" or variations of the game within the game (if that makes sense). I play in a zone called Trench Wars. It's a top down game, meaning you are looking down at your ship as if from above and the screen scrolls as you move to reveal more of the area (map) you are playing in. You are in a spaceship of your choice with varying weapons for each ship. The game requires aiming at your enemies before firing at them and anticipating their moves.

Well I noticed that playing at a higher resolution allows you to see more of your immediate area and expands your view of the map. It works just like your desktop in essence. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons, but the more space you have. In the game, the higher the resolution, the smaller the ships are, but you can see more space around you. Obviously, this would give an advantage to anyone playing ... Read more

A:Forcing Screen Resolution Higher Than Native Resolution

Simple answer is: you can not go over the native resolution of LCD panel because its physical thing for each pixel lcd panel has a cell you can not have more pixels than there is physical pixels in that panel.

smaller than native resolutions achieved by grouping more than one cell to form pixel thats why non native resolution on lcd sometimes gets blurry or edgy

I was working normally using cable connection (no wifi available), when suddenly the internet was disconnected. Earlier when the first time I plugged the cable (about 4 hours before), the icon keep switching for a few moments between connected (monitor icon on taskbar) and disconnected (empty wifi icon). Windows diagnose said DNS is not responding. I tried ipconfig /release and /renew, etc but not working. I decided to uninstall the driver (in the past this worked for me), but when I reinstalled the driver, the error message seen in the bottom left of the attached image.

I looked for a solution, one is by setting the system events broker to auto, but I can't change it (top right image). I also checked the bios, but I can't find any option related to LAN card.

I need a fix because my current long term option to connect to the internet is using cable. My laptop is ASUS N46VZ

Thank you for any help and I'm really sorry for terrible english.

A:Ethernet driver can't be reinstalled

I had a similar problem when upgrading from W7 to W10. The network adapter worked fine until the final reboot of the W10 upgrade, then it failed to connect.

Before getting to the fix that worked for me note that Ethernet cables are not very robust at all. They can be damaged easily by one too many yanks or being tripped over. And router ports can go bad too so consider swapping cables and ports.

I decided to uninstall the driver (in the past this worked for me)

This does often work, but because today's computers don't power off completely when shutdown (they go into standby), sometimes it is necessary to completely remove power to release any settings (including network settings) the ATX required +5Vsb voltage is holding. For a PC, this means unplugging from the wall or setting the PSU's master power switch, if it has one, to off for 15 - 30 seconds. For a notebook, this means unplugging the charger and removing the battery. This "cold" boot process is often necessary when uninstalling and reinstalling network drivers.

From another computer I had to visit the failed computer's website and got the latest network drivers for and saved them to a thumb drive. Then back on the failed computer, I uninstalled the current drivers and installed the new drivers from the thumbdrive, shutdown and powered off completely, waited 15 seconds, connected power and booted. Windows saw "new hardware" and installed the new drivers and i... Read more

Hello! I have a Dell Inspiron 600m laptop that was running XP. Last week, in the middle of working on a paper/surfing, I got the blue screen of death ("Hard error"). On reboot the computer would flash the Dell logo, then go to a black screen with blinking cursor. I'm trying to get this back up and running. Here's what I've done so far:

* Physically removed the harddrive, used a SATA cable to hook it to my dad's laptop and successfully removed all the files, then put the harddrive back into my laptop. No problems there.
* Still at my Dad's: Reinstalled XP from a CD (boot from CD). This worked - after the install I was able to restart the computer, log-on to the internet and download the first round of Microsoft updates.
* Returned home 1 hour later to download more updates....and the comp wouldn't boot! Got an "IRQL_Not_Less_Or_Equal." Could boot in safe mode, but not in safe mode with networking.
* I enabled USB emulation in BIOS, then used a USB drive to install SP2 in safe mode. Now I get the error message "Windows did not boot properly." I can still only boot in traditional safe mode. Also, safe mode doesn't detect my network card.

So....what's my next move? I'm reaching the end of my computer literacy. Is there a way to enable my network card in BIOS? If I enable it, will I be able to connect to LAN in traditional safe mode? I thought if I could just hop online to update the software, some of the kinks might work out.

So, here I go again with another issue with Widows 10.... Windows 10 upgrade installed fine on this now vintage laptop using an ISO image. It also worked perfectly fine in Vista and Windows 7. Maybe not a big mistake, but with some issues. Initially, the driver for the NVIDIA graphics card could not be found. Solved that by using the Vista driver, it worked fairly well. Next, after a Windows 10 update the DVD/CD drive disappeared. Not so fast to solve this time. I restored Windows 10 using the USB solution and the drive reappeared. That was fine until the very first update. Gone again. This time, I attempted to restore Windows 10 using the same USB recovery drive as before and now the Hard Drive can't be found.  Checked the BIOS and the drive is there listed.  I finally received a message that the driver is missing. I went to the support page for this notebook but don't see the driver for the HD listed there for download. Also note that the original restore DVD made from the original restore partition (Vista based) loads original restore files but when the Recovery Manager presents Error Code 0x4001100200000100A.  Says to contact HP Support.  This is perhaps related to repartitioning the hard drive when Windows 7 was installed?

I've just reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit and was trying to install drivers from the motherboard manufacturer website. I have no sound and when I try to install the latest VIA Audio Driver, I get a BSOD right after, then I have to do a system restore.

This is what I see when I go to the playback devices, I have my pc speakers plugged into the audio jack.

My speakers dont show up. How can I get around this so I can have sound again?

Heres the link to the website: Motherboards - M4N68T-M V2 - ASUS

A:Reinstalled Windows 7 > No sound > BSOD after audio driver install

It sounds like the Sound was disabled in the BIOS. Check the BIOS to see if it was inadvertently disabled. If the VIA is Windows 7 compatible, Windows would have installed the generic High Definition Audio Codec and that apparently was not installed.

With only the High Definition Audio Device, that says you did not install the AMD Radeon HD5450 drivers or you would see AMD HDMI listed instead of the generic Windows installed High Definition Audio Device.

On an unrelated note, I see you have Windows 7 64 bit installed. With only 4GB of RAM the 64 bit OS does nothing for you. In fact the 64 bit uses more basic memory than a 32 bit so you have less memory available for programs.

Well, first of all I am a total computer neophyte so any advice needs to be really simple. I use my laptop for my Internet research, translating 18th and 19th century documents, word processing and GTA IV

I never had an issue with graphics or game play until a period of BSOD/Black screen failures led me to have it wiped and a fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64x. I am beginning to think that none of that was necessary and instead I was having issues with NVIDIA driver updates.

At present my graphics card is not recognized. Under device manager it states "Standard VGA Graphics Adapter" rather than the GeForce 9800M GT.

Going to NVIDIA's website and installing the latest driver for my graphics card causes a flash of BSOD then blackscreen then start-up repair then system restore.

Please help and apologies in advance for my ignorance.

A:Reinstalled windows 7 and get gray screen

Factory preinstalled Win7 is an inferior install, which is why most tech enthusiasts will not use it but instead choose to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Everything needed to get a perfect install is in the link.

If you prefer the factory bloatware, try wiping the HD first using Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command, but you'll need the booted installer to run the command so you might as well do the reinstall and have a much better install.

To get into safe mode, you'll have to press the "F8" key when you computer is booting up, just before the Windows Logo shows up. Normally I just spam the button after I see the BIOS load screens.

My sound card is a GeForce 8200A

A:Finding the Right Driver

You mentioned that your audio card is a GeForce 8200A....but is your MOTHERBOARD an ECS GeForce 8200A with your sound card being onboard?

Did you try the ECS website's driver page for your particular mobo? (below)

I have looked all over the net for a driver for my Toshiba CD/DVD-RW drive (SD-R2412) and am simply not finding anything.

At some point this weekend my machine (2GIG, XP home, 512 RAM) stopped seeing and writing disks. I even tried a restore to no avail. Device MGR shows that the device is working properly. It doesn't work in safe mode or with all the startups taken out.

So I think it's a driver issue, but I can't find the right driver...

Any help would be awesome!
Thanks in advance.

Hi. I'm new here. I've been jumping from blog to blog, from forum to forum and I also read the support websites.

My problema is that I can't find the driver(s) for my hdd
Hitachi HTS543225L9A300 (SATA)
Or maybe a quick google serach does return some pages but I don't trust those.

And here's the story:
I recently purchased this Acer Netbook AS1410 and all went ok except that it came with Windows Vista, so I thought an upgrade would be good.
I downloaded the iso file (Win7 RTM 7600) from a site and made a bootable USB. All went good until the part where it asks you if it's ok to keep the old Vista files. I choosed no, then formatted the hdd. If that's not a 'clean' install, then I don't know what is. So needless to say, I deleted both the bootmgr and somehow, also the hdd drivers.
Now I'm stuck because even after I succesfully installed Ubuntu 9.10 on another partition it won't boot. Leaving me the same as before. (I can boot from a USB and see the whole hdd in perfect health but cannot boot from hdd)

If you need to see an error message there's plenty:
boot manager is missing or corrupt
setup was unable to create a new system partition or locate an existing partition.
the requested system device cannot be found (when doing > bcdedit /export )

And on Ubuntu/Linux: (at boot)

gave up waiting for root device

Please please help me find the drivers. or if you can send me your bootmgr via rapidshare I'll be forever gratefl.
I don't know what else to ... Read more

Reinstalling Vista from ACER Recovery partition doesn't help at all.

Any ideas?

Addendum: I also found this other thread which reflects most of (my frustration) err most of the result I've been getting. Unfortunately, the thread gets cut and because it originally comes from usenet I can't see the rest. Does anyone know where I can look for the whole archived thread? Thanks for your support.

I recently formatted my computer and installed all the drivers I needed except for the mtp driver. I found one at microsoft updates (mtppk12.exe). but it didn't work. Before I formatted it I used to be able to access my sansa veiw 16 gig. When it recognized the device it would show a mini icon in My Computer>Removable Storage of the Sansa. I can't find one anywhere. I already checked Dell.com for the drivers and it wasn't there. If anyone could be of assistance to this issue I would greatly appreciate it.

HP G60-235X with Vista Home Premium (current) has a corrupt driver for slimtype DVD A DS82SL-A ATA DEVICE.

Checked HP and Microsoft sites and can't make headway on downloading this particular driver.

Also checked the WINDOWS/SYSTEM32/DRIVERS/CDROM.SYS - nothing that I could determine would help me find and download the driver.

Any suggestions?

Hi mc995599, After extensive googling I could not find anything at all , My only suggestion would be to get in touch with TK Max head office explain the situation and see if they will be able to supply a disc from another store ,Sorry about that
