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 CASPERTJE19 ,

Welcome to the Community Forums.

DId you recently had any motherboard replacements?
You may verify your machine serial number using this guide else , you may send me a private messgae for us to verify specific model and machine type for you to ensure that we would be using the correct BIOS for update.

From the support site : Yoga 2 pro have 76CN43WW , Yoga 2 13 with 96CN31WW

Update us how it goes.

Hi,

I'm new here. Depseratly hoping someone can rescue me from my present situation.
I recently downloaded an update for Microsoft Office for Mac OS X and now, every time I want to open an Office program, I have to re-enter the serial number. Every time, every program.

Does anyone know why I'm stuck in this loop?
Usually you enter it once and then never again, right?

If anyone has any suggestions/advice/solutions (!!), I'd be most grateful.

Thanks so much,

Hi, Has anyone had any success using the N23 Yoga Chromebook and a USB serial adapter.  I have verified that my USB-A port is good but I have tried several different USB to Serial Adapters and none of them are being recognized.  Several hours of research today led me to a suggestion that requires modifing a file in the root filesystem "android.hardware.usb.host.xml" and I would rather not do that.   Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks,Kevin

Hello,

Two questions, please:

a. In a Program's Folder I see several Drivers.
These exact same ones also show in the System32 Folder.

Which are being used by the program; both ? Why in two places ?

b. When entering a Path to a Folder that a program is asking for to be entered, there are
apparently blank spaces between names.

e.g. \Program Files\

Do I just leave the blank space, or do I use the UnderLine (_), or... ?

Thanks,
Bob

A:Driver Question, And Re Entering A path Name

There's a distinction between "installation files" and "installed files"

Installation Files
The program in question is keeping a copy of the driver "installation files" under its Program Files folder.

Installed Files
When you install the device driver, the installed driver files are copied to the target Windows directories where they're needed at run-time.
As to to your path question, there you don't have to worry about those blank spaces if typing in Windows Explorer.

But if you're entering the path into a command prompt window or shell script , you need to enclose the full path by opening and closing quote symbols.

Example:
C:\Program Files\Epson Software\file.txt in a command prompt window would be entered as
"C:\Program Files\Epson Software\file.txt"

It's worth noting that this is a core I7 ultrabook and when i originally bought it I was in between this laptop and The MacBook. However, I went for the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro and now I am expecting that the motherboard to be changed free of charge as this is something I have never experienced. It's worth noting that before buying this laptop i was using Dell XPS 15' and it's still functioning till date (starting 2009). I contacted Lenovo and they said it's out of warranty. is that normal, I buy an I7 ultrabook 2 years ago and the motherboard goes bust all of a sudden and now they tell me it's out of warranty and that I should pay almost $750.Any suggestions??? Appreciate your kind feedback, Very best regards,Loay Hossny

I recently started having the following problem. After a period of inactivity, I return to my PC and find the following message in a pop-up box "The device driver for the 'Standard 101/102-Keyboard or Microsoft Natural PS/2 Keyboard' device is preventing the machine from entering Standby. Please close all applications and try again. If the problem persists, you may need to update the driver". At this point, I've also lost my mouse pointer (although it seems to still be active, just invisible), so I usually have to reboot my PC using the On/Off button to recover. Does anyone have any suggestions, or troubleshooting steps I could follow to try and fix this problem. I did see a suggestion somewhere that Adobe Type Manager could be a culprit (which I did have installed), but I removed it, rebooted and still have the problem. Thanks
 

A:Entering Standby problems because of Keyboard driver?

1) Test in safe mode
2) use msconfig to diagnostic the issue, by selecting selective startup and unchecking all the check boxes.
3) Post results

If it works in safe mode , then go to step 2.

Hi, I updated the bios on a replacement board which I fitted in my Yoga 900 13ISK.  The replacement board was originally: Bios: C6CN35WW and EC: C6EC32WW.  I ran the bios update and it is now C6CN39WW, but the EC version remains stuck at C6EC32WW.  I have since tried everything to get these to sync, including updating the platform.ini, attempting to install older bios versions, but after upgrading to C6CN39WW, the only message I get after the machine reboots to try to flash the bios is "InsydeH20 - Secure Flash\n Error: Firmware update failed !! \n Please press any key to reset system".So questions:1/ How to update the bios to get the EC to be correct?2/ How to flash the serial and MTM?3/ Could this be the reason an SSD is not detected?  I have tried with an Intel SSDSCKKF256H6, but the bios doesn't see it.  It is a 16GB US board which I believe should take SATA SSDs.  I'm slightly worried that the different EC version and missing serial/MTM info could somehow be causing the machine to not see this SDD (or any other which is my worst fear!!)4 Is there a hardware maintenance diskette for this model? (or similar) Thank you all

A:Yoga 900 - BIOS and EC version discrepancy and INVALID serial / MTM info

Last night I went to put my computer to sleep and right after the monitor went to sleep the computer hung for a sec and then BSOD (waking monitor). So I left it off and figured I would look at it in the morning. This morning I wake up and restart and everything seems fine, walk away to make food and my computer went to sleep - BOOM BSOD. When I check event logs it says diver issue for ntoskrnl.exe

I have tried a couple things and looked around but I'm not seeing where the actual fault lies. Thanks in advanced for all help and suggestions

A:BSOD entering sleep mode, points to ntoskrnl.exe driver

Hi Bentobaku.

Daemon Tools, Alcohol 120% and Power Archiver Pro uses SCSI Pass Through Direct (SPTD), which is a well known BSOD causer. Uninstall Daemon Tools at first. Then download SPTD standalone installer from Disk-Tools.com, and execute the downloaded file as guided below :
Double click to open it.
Click this button only:

If it is grayed out, as in the picture, there is no more SPTD in your system, and you just close the window.
Then free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Then try to enable sleep mode for a few times and observe if it BSODing still or not. Let us know the situation.

A:Error Mess. The device driver for the is preventing the machine from entering standby

I don't know if you ever solved your problem, I just joined the forum.
I had the same problem, but in my case it was directing me to update the keyboard driver.
Well, it turned out this problem has nothing to do with updating drivers!
I accidentally bumped into an article (Microsoft, I believe, can't find it anymore), listing the softwares which, when installed, cause this problem.
In my case, it was Adobe Fonts. The moment I uninstalled it, the machine started going into hybernate and / or standby, without any problems.
Sorry I can't find that article any more.
Hope this will help.

I have a hand-held GPS which I use for hillwalking.

Recently I purchased a USB to RS232 cable to allow my serial-port GPS to connect to my computer via a USB port. I've used the same cable on my XP machine and it works perfectly.

However, when I install (as Administrator) the supplied Vista driver on my Vista system I meet with no success. I go through the process of installing the driver from the disk supplied and it appears to successfully go through the process all the way to 'Finish'. Almost immediately after this a message pops up from the system tray saying that the driver was not successfully installed and proceeds to search Windows Update without any success. I've directed a search to the driver on the disk but I simply get a message 'Driver not found'. When I plug in the usb later I get a message saying that I need a driver to be installed which has me going through the same procedure again but without any success apart from the driver APPEARING to be successfully installed.

To see if it was just my computer which has the problem I went to my friend's computer which has the Vista OS. I went through the same process on his machine and still was unable to install the driver/get the computer to recognise the installation. As I've said, the whole process works and installs perfectly on WXP when I install the XP driver supplied.

Would anyone have any idea why this installation is unsuccessful? Many thanks.

You may have to change the DEP settings
Change Data Execution Prevention settings

You could also try dragging the driver from the disc to the desktop first.
Just ideas not instructions.

Hello,

The Problem:

A friend of mine has some win32 and msdos applications that use serial
port communication with an external device, and a notebook that doesn't
have a serial port (unfortunately, many notebooks these days come
without serial ports). He got himself a USB to Serial Port Cable, and he
says that the win32 apps work just fine now, but the DOS ones don't.

I think (I'm not sure) those DOS applications don't run from an ms-dos
prompt under windows , but just in plain DOS mode. I'm trying to find out a
solution to use them under ms-dos.

I just want to find out if anyone knows any DOS driver for those USB to
Serial Port Converters / a method to get those dos applications running ...

Thanks.
 

A:USB to Serial Port driver for DOS

Just because you have a USB to serial converter cable/adapter doesn't mean DOS can work with the device. The device itself uses the USB protocol, so you need a DOS driver to "talk" to it. Scour the internet, I believe I saw one out there. search for - DOS usb

I have just re-installed windows XP professional on my Inspiron 1525 laptop. I have installed all the drivers recommended on the dell driver site. I am having problems installing the driver recommended for Serial ATA which is Intel Matrix Storage Manager notebook, dell file R182441. When I click this self extracting file, it unzips several files into a folder but there is no installer or setup.exe to install the drivers with. I have tried downloading and unzipping several times but I still can't find how to install this.
I also have a yellow question mark next to SM Bus Controller in Device manager, which I think may relate to the card reader asI have installed the Chipset driver.
Would anyone know how to install the Intel Matrix Storage Manager notebook dell file R182441, or offer any advice on the driver for 'SM Bus controller.
Also I could not find the Dell notebook software on the Dell drivers/applications CD disc, or on the Dell website, so I am not sure if this is needed. The laptop appears to be basically working fine.
I would be very grateful for any help and advice on the above.
Many thanks.

Good afternoon, recently i installed windows 10 on my laptop (32 bits) and now the touchpad doesn't work. Looking at forums, I found that I have to install the Intel Serial IO I2C Controller, but when trying to install, a message appears on my screen: "This platform is not supported" Anyone knows how to fix this? Thanks in advance 

A:Serial IO Driver problem

Are you downloading the executable file from the hp.com site and running that?  I have done that on my Stream 11 for a Windows 10 fresh installation and did not have a problem although I have not done it in a while.

A:PCI Serial Port Driver

Hi: You need this driver for the serial port. This package contains the Intel Local Management Service (LMS) and Serial-over-LAN (SOL) support for Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) for the supported desktop models and operating systems. This software is part of the Intel Digital Office Initiative. ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp45001-45500/sp45367.exe I don't see any other devices that need drivers from your screen shot, so unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to help you with why the wireless isn't working.
