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.)

check out this newly found tool i stumbled upon at work the other day. the OEM MSI KT6V motherboard driver cd. this driver cd scans your device manager and automatically picks the compatible drivers that are availible on the cd for you to install. it's really amazing how many computers i've used this cd on... it has intel, VIA, SiS among other things and a bunch drivers for onboard sound/lan etc. it really is a must have for the tech that works on windows machines all the time. this driver cd has been used on almost every kind of OEM motherboard (dell, compaq, hp, w/e) and almost every socket processor from socket A to 939 on the AMD side and 370 to 775 on the intel side.

it might be hard to find this disc, but it's a great tool to have. i've only got a couple of copied KT6V discs and i use all of them all the time at work. (we do about 100 machines a week.)

Hi,

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.

Every once in a while I will read that a update may cause problems to your computer and to remove it.

Recently update KB3133977 was reported that it was crashing certain mother boards.

Now for my problem/question.

I'm using windows 7. I go to my windows update, installed updates and wondering if I can search for a specific update. Surely there should be a way to search instead of having to scroll through all 335 updates.

I noticed the search box in the upper right corner and thought that would be the answer. So I tested it out by searching for an update I knew was listed but it did not find the update even though it was an installed update, so that wasn't the answer.

Tell me, if you are looking for a specific update, how do you guys find it? Is there a way to search or an easier way than having to scroll through your entire list of updates?

Thanks for any feedback

A:Finding a specific Windows 7 Update

Open up Windows 7 Updates.
Lower left corner tick on Installed Updates.
Upper Right corner (Search Installed Updates)
Type in or copy and pasted the KB number. (KB3133977)

It should either show the KB or state (No items match your search)

That method has always worked for me.

You said they do not download OR fail but then you said they failed, which is it?

Make sure you have restarted your computer since then. Try updating ONLY important updates, possibly selecting a few at a time to download and update. Let me know if it still fails. Restart>select some updates (important ones first, then slowly working your way to other updates you want to have installed)>installl>restart again. If it works keep doing this method

These two things likely don't have an effect on the updates, but try them anyway:

1. Do you know if you have all your drivers currently updated?

2. Has windows been activated yet?

A:Finding corrupt file in an Windows 8.1 Update installation

The addition of Bye to your post kinda closes it.

It's always possible to have corruption in downloaded files but as we're moving away from Dial-Up Internet connections don't see it very often. The 8.1 Update is strictly a download from the Store for most users and automatically installs it would be presumed to be correct if Windows 8.1 Update completes then runs seemingly properly. I just did one, started the download on a Gateway before bed and all was good this morning. The Update wipes out the list of installed updates in Control Panel, Windows Update that were installed in 8.0 and I only had 6 updates to do today. I did have to do the 8.0 updates yesterday before 8.1 would start.

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
That is how the problem progressed:

1. I was trying to enable Telnet service and found out that 'Turn Windows Features on/off' in Control panel > Programs and Features is a blank list.

I checked on internet and i found out that it means my windows update wont be working as well so i check it:

2. Windows update gives the error 80070002 and it does not check for updates.

3. Again check net and it said to run sfc/scannow in command prompt (as administrator). I did it. and it gives error 'Windows Resource Protection can't execute the command'.

I have tried everything. I have tried:
msconfig.exe to enable/disable services and restarting and rechecking.
Uninstalling my Avast Antivirus.
Running MS Fixit tool.
I have checked disk check in advanced startup options.
Deleted 'C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download' contents and recheck the Windows update facility.
Nothing works. I dont have Windows CD coz my laptop came installed with windows.

Hi Guys,

I have a REAL newbie question. I?ve tried reading a bunch of tutorials, but they?re a little over my head. I think my question is pretty basic, but after a couple hours research, hopefully someone here would be kind enough to help.

I have an M2A-VM motherboard and my system keeps freezing up, no input from keyboard or mouse, no ctl-alt-del, nothing. It freezes intermittently, but never goes more than 3 hours without freezing, sometimes freezes in a few seconds, with 5 ? 10 minutes being the average time it works before freezing. Seems to freeze more (often immediately) when I?m using the mouse than any other time, but it will freeze on it?s own, just idling, if you give it enough time.

I?ve read a few things including updating bios and downloading the latest motherboard drivers. My problem starts when I go to download the mobo drivers from this page:

ASUSTeK Computer Inc.-Support-

It lists 41 driver updates there for my motherboard:

41 files found

Qualified Vendor List (1)

BIOS (20) [BIOS History]

A:Windows Update INCLUDES Motherboard Drivers and BIOS Update on M2A-VM?

I have the same board on another pc.

You only need to download and install only that which would make your setup current.

You really only need to update the bios if you will be moving up to a newer processor that is not currently supported by the current bios or if the newer bios fixes a known problem.

You need the latest motherboard chipset driver. (I would install this first if you haven't already)

You need the latest LAN driver.

The audio driver you can either download from Asus or from RealTek.

In my Ult. Vistax64, Windows update hangs. I tried numerous fixes from Microsoft (MrFixIt) and others. nothing seems to fix it, including a full system image restore from a month ago.

System Restore also seems to have had its restore points deleted as there are only two recent saved restore points/images.

And I have noticed that after booting up, and perhaps at other times, my CPU usage goes to 100%. Both the Windows update service is running (wuauserv) - see pic - and when I stop it, CPU usage gets better.


what is a bit concerning is that my McAfee virus is also taking up CPU usage as if transfer activity over the internet is heavy. No viruses are found, either via real-time scanning or if I run a manual scan on the hard drives.

I have also run an sfc /scannow , there are a lot of PendingRenames, which seem to be from the sfc command fixing errors, as well as a lot of "duplicate ownership...", which is sort of scary to see when I have a problem with my computer.

Besides the failure of the windows Update, the SFC /scannow keeps finding corrupt files and repairing them, and it does not seem just limited to a few that "are erroneously marked as corrupt" and not a problem, according to research into these problems.
The computer seems to be working fine, but not being able to install updates is a problem, and the high CPU usage is suspicious. Any help would be appreciated.

I wanted a clean slate for my computer so I reinstalled Windows 7 (not upgrade, i used custom)with just the disc. It's a custom built PC that my friend generously gave to me so I didn't have any manufacturers disc to work with. Anyway, it's always had an Internet connection through a wired connection, and after it finished booting it wouldn't let me connect to the net even with the ethernet cord plugged in. I quickly realized something must have happened to the driver in the process of reinstalling, and now I need to find the drivers to install them onto my computer again but I have no clue where to find them.

I've already tried uninstalling the drivers, and then scanning for hardware changes to get them to reinstall but it did not work. It still says there are issues. I also can't use Windows Update since well, I can't connect to the net. When I go to Devices and Printers, I see a ! By my comp name.

A:"Windows did not detect any Networking Hardware" help finding drivers

Welcome to the Seven Forums Fissionmailedgf.

Please fill up your System Specs to the extent you can for more meaningful help. That said the information that you have furnished says "Ethernet Controller OK". Therefore Ethernet Controller is there. Kindly open the Device Manager and check the status of the Ethernet Controller and if properly installed then name of the Network Adapter that is installed.

Hello all, it seems that Windows 10 October Update requires some driver updates.  For example Intel Graphics must be at least 24.20.100.6286, but for ThinkPad X1 Yoga 1st Gen there is only 24.20.100.6170, while Intel already offers 25.20.100.6323.  I don't know the status of other drivers, but it is something Lenovo should check ASAP.  What is the status on the driver front for the October Update? Best regards, Karol

be truthful to the public. I have been reading a lot about people ditching windows and going to Linux. I wonder why. wow I used to love and trust windows. now I don't know anymore. you all have become something other than wonderful like I used to think.
too bad. maybe I should learn Linux too. windows is probably a habit lots of people will learn to break. scary. Be honest about your updates. ty.

HiI had a trouble with a virus lately & accidently removed sound files while trying to get rid of it. Afterwards each time I play a video I hear the sound coming out from both, my headphone & speakers at the same time. I have tried to install windows 10 again & asked the Microsoft support for help, it ended up downloading windows 10, 3 times & downloading drivers for sound but no use. Each time they download windows remotly, it becomes worse then before & other problems show!! like: the short cuts in the keyboard doesn't work, the sound becomes funny & I couldn't reduce the brightness!!  I have tried to make a clean installation through the USB driver but it showed this message "The selected boot device failed" & I have tried to update the BIOS driver so I can boot from USB driver but I couldn't find drivers for my Laptop, each time I search for drivers it says the warranty is expired & doesn't show anything for my HP Pavilion TS Sleekbook 15!!!I need help, please

hey all - i havent picked up the machine yet, but my neighbor has been having a pretty hard time with his computer. (an older couple)
i offered to help and suggested that in the meantime he try to find any discs that might have come with it originally - he says he has NONE!
so im going through the motions in my head and wondering what will i do when its time to get drivers for this thing if i end up re-installing windows.
i just went through this on one of my other computers so i know that i will come to the point where i need to install drivers so that i can access the internet, get sound, etc.,etc...
what will i do to get the drivers needed if i dont have any discs for the computer.
 

A:finding drivers ?

I haven't run into too many computers in the last couple of years where the manufacture has not put the drivers on their website. Your best bet is to always go straight to the source.

I have an older Gateway Laptop Computer (MX6445 Model SN T3568Y1004798). The hard drive failed and I have had to do a new install. Drivers for the Ethernet and modem did not load as well as some others. I have been unable to find ANY drivers that will be accepted by the computer as correct. I cannot get online to analyze for the correct hardware present and the software driver selections seem to be huge. How can I find the correct drivers???

Any chance we could get a sticky added to this forum recommending people first Google the exact model # of their computer before starting a new thread for a missing driver? 9 times out of ten, the first page of results has a link to the manufacturers' site with the driver they're looking for. It only takes a bit of common sense. If you have an hp, go to the link that has hp.com in it... and so on. Most of the time, drivers for vista will work in windows 7, and in almost every case, you don't even have to specify whether you have 32 or 64 bit windows because the download usually contains drivers for both.

A:finding drivers....

I see your point. But many times people don't realize they need a 32-bit or 64-bit driver, that their hardware is no longer supported for Win 7, that it might not be located at the mfg, but you can track it by the (let's say) chip mfg, etc. Google for a driver and you might not be directed to the mfg, and perhaps to a disreputable site. I think it's a good idea but don't know if it will have utility in the long run.

I am wondering where I could find all the drivers for all my devices in my computer. I have looked on the AMD site. But I could not find a driver or anything for my processor.

I would like to try and keep all my stuff up to date. I am kind of new at this. So I am trying to learn as much as I can. I would like any info at all about keeping my computer up to date. or Safe.

i know my Wireless LAN card is an

A:Finding Drivers

Download HWInfo32 and use the categories on the left to browse for your GPU, LAN card and any other drivers. Then look for those manufacturers via Google to find the necessary updates. That being said, last time I updated the driver for my Ethernet NIC it stopped working, so stick with your graphics and sound drivers.

The computer in question is a packard bell imedia 4605. It is ancient, and originally had windows ME in it, but it has since been upgraded to XP since the person who's computer it is lost the ME disk.

It was not me who did the upgrade, I might add, anyway, everything else is installed but the USB ports don't work and the device manger tells me that the PCI Simple Communications Controller is missing its driver.

Since the computer is so old I cannot find the driver any where online and the Packard Bell site doesn't have anything.

Can anybody point me in the right place to get them?

Thanks.

I'm not sure this is the right place for this question, but I'm wondering about Win XP's ability to find drivers for my hardware. I go to Divice Manager and then click on the items that need drivers. The "Hardware Update Wizard" always asks if I want to go online and let it find the driver. I have tried to have it do this with several different devices and it has never yet found a driver. Does this feature work for anyone else?

I have an Ethernet card that XP doesn't find the manufacturer. Also there is a PCI Slot 2 (PCI bus 2, device 10, function 0) that doesn't have a driver. It too, doesn't show a manufacturer. Is there any way to find the drivers for these two things?

Thanks

A:Help with finding xp drivers.

HP supports only Windows Vista and 7 on that system.
Vista is what should be installed on it legally.
The OS that the system came with.

Sorry!

Exactly why did you downgrade to XP?
