Missing drivers! (Can't find them) Weird startup isssues

Q: Missing drivers! (Can't find them) Weird startup isssues

Yesterday i re-installed XP Home SP2 from the disk and now i have Windows XP with missing drivers

The missing drivers are:

- Ethernet controller
- PCI communications thingy

And on computer startup i have no programs except the defaults, and a very old version of windows media player, on startup i also have a weird screen that is titled as 'OEM reset' with an option to shutdown, do an audit boot and build an RIS deployment image.. why have i got that?

I need to get the Ethernet controller asap and i cannot connect to the internet through my PC.

The PC is an old eMachines e4024, 2.9ghz intel pentium 4 with 512mb ram.

eMachines support is rubbish, they hardly give anything, that's why im posting here..
My ethernet controller is a Intel pro 10/100, thats as far as i have got to finding out what the controller is, everest did not tell me anything about an ethernet controller.. but i know it is manufactered by Intel, on intel's website they have a list of driver downloads for many ethernet controllers but im posting here cause i cant find my model.

Thanks in advance for your help!

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.)

Hi .<<Yesterday i re-installed XP Home SP2 from the disk and now i have Windows XP with missing drivers>>What disk might that be? Is it a MS XP install CD?Is it a CD provided by eMachines for restoring your system?Did you have a drivers CD for your system? If so, did you run it?Did you delete everything on the C: partition and attempt a clean install...or did you attempt to do a repair install of your existing XP?FWIW: Drivers for E4024 desktop, http://downloads.emachines.com/emdriver.html?model=E4024Louis

My sister is missing Raid Controller and Video Controller (VGA compatible) drivers. It says the manufacturer for both drivers is unknown. She has problems with bad choppy scrolling when she visits websites so I think this has something to do with it. Anyone know what I can do to find out what drivers she needs to install? Computer is Windows XP Professional.

So I need to download these drivers, as in my Device Manager, these two devices have question marks, and I need to install them I suppose.

Video Controller (VGA Compatible)
Unknown Device (I am not sure what this "unknown" device could be)

I have Windows Xp Professional
Compaq SR2027X


If you need anymore info, let me know.
THANKS :D

Hi sreynol
Here is a link for your drivers.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/s...292433&lang=en

You should download the graphis driver (Video controller) and install. The PCI device may be you modem, sound card, nic card. Are all these working?
Please post what is still in question marks after you install the video driver.
Thanks,

Hi i just put together a cheap pc for my son, he's 5 so nowt fancy, it's a INTEL? Pentium? 4 E2160 Dual Core CPU, MSI PT890 Neo mainboard
, 400W iCute ATX Power Supply, nvidia geforce 7200 128mb and 1gig of ram 2x512 modules, 2 x hard discs 1 40gig and another 20 gigs, 2x dvd drives and a internal memory card reader. It's running Vista Home Premium.

Problem is that after the computer is shut down some drivers are lost and on next powerup vista installs them again, some of the drivers are, sound, pci-bridge or summit? the internal usb reader (this was added after this problem), it's just annoying, if i leave my external hard drive plugged in to my desktop or laptop it doesn't reinstal the driver next startup, so why does it do this with parts? built into my sons pc? Also i got him a wireless keyboard and mouse bundle at staples for ?15 - Labtec? Ultra-Flat Wireless Desktop, the mouse nearly always stops responding at some point when you left or right click, you can move the cursor around the screen but cant close apps etc, and if you hover over objectdock, you can tell that something is slowing it down as it should pop out at you quick and smooth when you hover the cursor over it? is it the mouse etc or is it related to the first problem???

hello, if anyone can help me out, it would be fantastic.

here's the rundown of what's going on with my computer:
I installed these programs that create a virtual drive on your computer (install drivers and all) so that you can burn cds to the image drives. There were three in all, one was called "noteburner" and another called "sharedrm.." the other i dont remember at all but its icon was an ipod looking thing i think.
i uninstalled these programs and restarted my computer
upon restarting computer, the loading of windows lagged for a long time and then eventually the comp would just restart.
i also started getting the blue screen of death (fatal error) here and there.
after some working around with the computer i managed to get it to boot up again to find that i no longer had sound and my ethernet adapter was not working. Also, the drivers for those virtual drive programs were still in my device manager and in the registry.. i manually deleted all of them and everything from my registry with their names. (i contacted their techservs - and they had no idea)
also, it createed a driver in the network adapters tab called "direct parallel" which i deleted raspti.sys and ptlink.sys (it's two driverfiles) manually - everytime i tried to uninstall normally, there was a message that said "cannot unistall, this device may be needed for the computer to boot" - somewhere in the mess of things i ended up reinstalling service pack 2 as...

Hi
Lately at a start up it takes my computer long time to establish network connection .The skype icon takes a long time to get green and the network icon is probing for a long time , what is most unusuall that i have a data streaming program that is connected immediately to the internet and the data streaming is working perfectly while the rest of the computer is still searching for it , while probing i cannot open Explorer/FireFox.
It is like i have 2 kinds of connections in 1 computer. the computer itself is connected to a router and another computer that is working on the same router does not suffer the same issues, i guess in one of the updates something has changed but i cannot put my finger on the cause.
Thank you

A:Lan isssues

Hi please try a system restore to a point before the issue first occurred.

If issue still persists is this a wired or wireless connection.

Turn off the data streaming program and see if things improve.

What is the data streaming program you are using?

I want to make sure that everything has been resolved before considering it again. Do you have these issues? What other issues do you have? P53 OLED----------- Ugly looking grids across the screen espcially the background is white. Is it due to the way Lenovo implemented the touch screen?- Becaues of the grids, letters are not solid nor good looking most of the time.- Coil Whine especially when the RTX GPU is pushed- Images are not much better looking than those from IPS screen. In some cases, pixelation when viewing videos is even worse (more ugier looking blocks of dark images).  P53 IPS 4K------------ Wrobble at the bottom as reported by several users- LCD screen cannot be closed.

Hi there,

Ever since the upgrade my CPU is constantly running at 98-100% all the time meaning I cannot do anything on my PC.

clicked on photos and clicked on Burn to burn all to DVD - it burnt the files - but then when the burnt and finalised disk was placed back in the machine - it showed only 1 file burned and all the others marked as waiting to be burnt

I placed the disk into a different machine and it showed all the files and folder on the disk burnt

any idea what's going on here - making it difficult for my friend who is not computer literate and new to this type of thing - struggle with burning disks and i thought using windows explorer in windows 7 would be easiest - but not if it shows burnt disks ad waiting to be burnt

Recently I have decided to update the USB 3.0 drivers on my MSI Z97 PC MATE motherboard as it turned out that they weren't installed, and because I bought a USB 3.0 memory stick. When I just got this motherboard I didn't install them as after doing so I got a BSOD and had to do a system restore. Now that I've seen that a newer version is available, I decided to update along side my BIOS and other drivers. The updates went find with no problems, and the USB 3.0 ports are working great.

However, every time I start up my PC there's like a 10 second delay before I can use anything connected to the USB ports, which is rather annoying as some of my programs rely on some of the USB devices to be connected at startup, so I have to configure them one by one manually after startup. What has also happened is that the desktop icon positions aren't saving, and nor is the position/size of windows.

I'm thinking that it may have also been something to do with the registry as I cleaned it with CCleaner (not a good idea, it broke my Chrome updates a while ago). Can anyone please help? I'm really out of options and this is really annoying me. So far I tried to make it so that all of the USB related services are run automatically on startup, I tried restoring the old registry... Perhaps there's a way to fix it? Any help is appreciated!

Description of problem: Computer will randomly no matter or what, "shutdown". The monitor will cut the signal and says "No Signal". This will usually happen while doing simple tasks like typing in Word or browsing in Chrome. The problem happend only one time during gaming. Keyboard and Mouse LEDs will turn off, meaning that they aren't getting any power anymore. The fans in the pc will start to act weird. They will act like a car accelerating. So for 4 seconds the fan will go Turbo Mode, meaning that they run in Full Speed. Than after this, the fans will run in Normal State, again for 4 seconds. And this processes will continue in a loop.

What did i do: I removed this components when the problem happend, but i got the same results

*GPU
*HDD
*SSD

--------------------------------------------

I also sent my PSU to the tech shop to do a check on it and they said it was in perfect condition. They also tested under full load as they told me.

Cause of Problems: Probbably MOBO or something else i missed

Note: This has nothing to do with high temperatures. The shutdown is not related to this. I have monitored the temps and everything is fine

How do i fix this temporarily:
I remove all the cables (HDMI & USB cables)
I take off the plug
I hold the power button for 1 minute
Than i put everything in place.Sometimes this works. Sometimes it doesn't work

Specs:

Mobo: ASUS Z97K

It may be possible that your Anti-Virus program is scanning the file/s in question, and has exclusive access for a while during the process.

you can also try running a disk check on the drive. Open Explorer
Right-click the C: then select Properties
Click Tools
Under Disk check, click "Check Now"

Hey folks.

Ran into a couple snags trying to get my computer to boot up. I've come to the conclusion that a fresh install would be best at this point because Windows won't load the login screen, malware guy here on the forum suggested a install.

So, if I try booting from the CD, and hit F-6 to load my raid drivers from a floppy, I get the blue screen of death. I went into safe mode, tried installing windows there, and it posts be back into dos with what appears to be copied files on the hard drive. Now when I boot up, I have the option for Windows Xp, recovery Mode, and setup mode.

I load setup mode not off the disc, but off the hard drive installed files. Press F-6 to load my drivers. Guess what... they work. Why not on the CD-boot, I don't know, but the setup mode works. So, I then hit enter to load windows. And immediately it says

"Setup cannot find a CD-ROM drive.
Make sure it's connected etc etc"

Clearly it's connected as it works to boot from CD, works to load the files in safe mode, but it won't detect it in the hard drive Xp Setup. It's a IDE DVD rom, and the Windows Xp service pack 2 disc is from my brothers HP laptop (lost mine somewhere). Running an AB9 pro motherboard. Ideas? Thanks in advance peeps. -Jeff

Newbie here needs some help, please.

To make a long story short, uninstalled Ad-Aware 2008 (with great difficulty, I might add...).

Immediately upon rebooting, Microsoft informed me that I had "New Hardware to Install". HUH? Not to my knowledge.

Went into Device Manager and found two (2) "Unknown Devices" with large yellow ?.

Here are the details:

1. Root\Legacy_FreshIO\0000

2. Root\Legacy_AAWService\0000

I suspect the trouble lies in the Ad-Aware 2008 uninstall.

My question is: can I safely Uninstall the two ? devices? My options are:

Update Driver
Disable
Uninstall

Thank you!! (I am not great on the tech side, so any advice is very much appreciated.)

I have windows XP professional service pack 3

When I startup my computer (after I type in my password) and everything is loading, this box pops up in the center of my screen that says "load!" on the top and has a red x circle in it. another identical box immediately pops up right next to it, and so on, until they reach the corner of my screen (then I suppose they continue to pop up, just on top of each other). If i try to exit out of these boxes, a new one just pops up as soon as the first one's gone. I ran all my antivirus stuff (malwarebytes antimalware, spybot SD, ADaware, etc.) in safe mode but I'm still having this problem. What is wrong and what can I do?

Also, during my last run through all the antivirus stuff I ran CCleaner, and when I started my computer in regular mode the time was in 24-hour format and my background was gone. Did I delete something I shouldn't have?

Please help!!

On a fresh format and clean install of XP, it boots up quick enough, (pIII, 512). The problem comes once it gets to the desktop. Most functions are there, but my network connections, the "my computer" properties, etc. Will hang for a minute or longer. I can wait a full minute or so and everything comes online, but Im sure thats not normal. The MSN messenger also comes alive in my task bar when the network comes on, so Im assuming its somting to do with the statup. But no matter what Startup I do, its the same result. And when I tryed installing Norton, on bootups its disabled. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Are you on a lan; and do you have a nic card installed that is not connected to anything at this time? If so, your computer is looking for a network connection. As to windows messenger, you can set it to not load on startup.

Hey guys, newbie here, I'm experiencing a weird problem with Win 7..for the last 2 days I am unable to search within folders. When I use the search box in the top right hand corner to search, windows returns search results saying "no items found". This was working perfectly fine just a few days ago, where the files I searched for would be found and highlighted. Also, when I go to the "my documents" folder (or any folder for that matter), and open subfolders, it displays the folders as empty even though the preview (when I hover the mouse over the folder) says there are files inside, and I know for a fact there are files there! Sometimes only a few files are displayed, other times the folder appears empty.

I havent changed any settings or options on my computer. This is a really annoying problem, and the standard response from Dell is "reinstall the OS". I have a lot of documents and music and even though they have been backed up, it is just a pain to go through the whole process again. Any ideas what could be happening and how to fix this before I reinstall the whole thing?

Thanks!

A:Weird problem - cannot find files, search function not working

Open and elevated command prompt (right click command prompt and run as admin) and type SFC /SCANNOW. See if it finds any problems. BTW, SFC is System File Checker.

I would also test the hard drive to make sure it working properly. You can use HD Tune, Seatools, or the hard drive diagnostics tool made by your hard drive manufacturer.
