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,I'm now using Ideapad Z510. After upgraded to Windows 8.1. I'd went to the Lenovo website searching for new driver update.But, after i install the "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.7023", the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is not running(audio sound not playing through).And, the "Dolby Digital Plus" is running instead of "Dolby Home Theater V4".Then, when I try to reinstall the older version "Realtek Audio Driver 6.0.1.6954" from Lenovo website, the "Dolby Home Theater V4" is running again.Truly, the "Dolby Digital Plus"'s sound is crisper and louder than "Dolby Home Theater V4". But the sound of "Dolby Home Theater V4" has more bass and more function (like Graphic Equalizer, more Intelligent Equalizer etc.).Is this an update or what?What should I choose?The newer driver (for Windows 8.1) or older driver (for Dolby Home Theater V4)?  Thanks. (confused now) @@

A:Dolby Home Theater V4 changed to Dolby Digital Plus after Realtek Audio Driver update Windows 8.1

I only installed audio driver ver. 6.0.1.6798 which includes Dolby Home Theater V4. Since no issues are encountered I have not updated to the latest version for my unit (ver. 6.0.1.7027). Does this Dolby Digital Plus mentioned by you better than V4 in some aspect aside from the ones that you already stated?

 Well I didn't get the time to update windows during july, I decided to do this today, but windows update was stuck at installing. I searched this forum because in may there was an update for windows update agent which I had to install manually to get windows update working again. While searching I got a mention of KB3172605. I installed it and hoped that this will make it work again. But it isn't still working now. I used to use windows auto update, but due to the windows 10 massacre I decided to do it manually. Now every other day it stops working. It's annoying that i have to pamper it this much. I will be glad to have any help, thank you.

A:Did anything changed again for windows 7 update?

- Windows Update for Win 7 is still a mess. MS seems to be very busy with Win 10.
- I never use the "Automatic" for Windows Update (WU). I don't want MS' WU messing up my system.
- What do you mean by "now every day it stops working" ?
- Try this first:

It contains instructions on how to fix this Windows Update problem. It worked for me. But your system could have more WU related problems.

I changed my windows SATA driver to an AMD driver. Now my computer will not recognize my external drive at all.
It doesn't appear in Setup, it doesn't get found by Windows.

I have been working on the computer but the only thing I can think of that would do this would be the controller change.
I changed to ACHI because I bought a SSD.

Any idea how to make my external drive accessible

Edit:
Windows 7 doesn't see it either. (unpluggin the drive and then plugging it back in does not temporarily fix the problem)
This drive is a 4 TB Western Digital from Costco. It is less than 6 months old.

Hi, so here's what happened. Was going out of town for the week and having a friend house sit so I decided to change my login password and left my computer off the whole time I was gone. It's a pretty simple password that I would not forget. So I get back and boot up my pc and login typing in my new password and it worked fine. Next day I notice windows is about to install some updates and I think nothing of it. When I come back I see it restarted and now I can't login. I've tried both my old and new password and nothing seems to work. I don't have a windows vista disk because it already came installed. I don't have a password recovery disk either. I'm the only user account on my pc and it's admin. Really at a loss of what to do....

I updated my Window 7 Ultimate today, and now when my computer reboots, it stops at the login screen. It used to just boot into my desktop and bypass the login screen. This is annoying because I use my tablet's wifi to check on and access things on my computer. If I have to go back to the desk to login, it kind of defeats the entire "mobile" computing thing I had going.
Does anyone know how to change that setting? And why did Microsoft change it?

It woild always fail and took my pc about 20 mins to fully launch and compared to the usuall 5 mins. I ignored this issue until about a month later when i had enough, i went to my control panel and stopped windows from automatically updating . This has given me serious issues and now i cannot complete simple tasks without the application stopping responding or freezing my computer completely. Also i can only shut my computer down by pressing the power buttom on the case as otherwise it goes through the normal process but then leaves me with a black screen and just my cursor. I cannot change my windows update back to automatically update as my control panel will just become iresponsive. I have have a copy of windows 10 preordered and i thought a clean wipe and a new update could fix my issues however i cannot go through the process without it becoming iresponsive.

Hello
Have a problem wonder if anyone could assist. Did an update on windows vista with service pack 2 and the display has changed. The picture in the middle is not filling the screen and the icons have moved. When you open any windows they are far to big for the screen. Have tried changing screen manually with the buttons on the front. (sorry this is a desktop), but all it did was move it one way, I managed to get the start button to show, but now the other end of the task bar is missing. Any windows that are open are to big for the screen. Looked in display drivers and a scan tells me the driver is up to date.
I have been having trouble with windows update, it kept hanging on installing before, Now it says there's no updates, but it had some optional ones, so installed them and now we have the problem as stated above.
Tried system restore and it was unsuccessful, on both attempts.
Thanking you in advance for your assistance

Hi.
I have just received a long Win 10 update. After completion, the screen display had completely changed. I checked Device manager, and it shows the correct display adapter - ATI Radeon HD 4200. The events tab shows that a device install was requested, and the installation was installed at 16:03:02. However, the information below states that the device "requires further installation".
When I check the display adapter properties from the Settings page, the adapter is shown as Microsoft Basic Display adapter. The information for this device shows that it was started at 16:00:50. From the state of the screen, it is clear that this is the one in use.
So, Device manager is showing one adapter; the computer is using another. What do I do to reset it?

Hi. After getting my wife's laptop with Win 7 Pro to run it's updates again after a week's worth of struggling with that, she opened an existing LARGE spreadsheet to find that all the green cell contents were now blue, and the cells with $ formatting were now general format again !! Not a happy camper !
Has anyone ever experienced anything like this after Windows Updates ? Could something have affected the palette settings for the colors ? Over 120 updates (mix of security, Office 10, net frame etc.) were done so a little tough to identify the potential culprit.

Thanks for any insight.

A:Excel cell formats changed after Windows Update

No, I've never seen that. I have a bunch of color-coded Excel stuff, but updates have never affected it.

You may have to do a System Restore to a time before the updates, if you'd rather give up the updates than deal with the Excel issues. I assume the Excel formatting issues can't be easily corrected.

In various posts on Microsoft forcing us towards Win10 upgrade, I couldn?t find anyone describing the actual harm KB2952664 is doing to the system. Is just that people are being annoyed with something being installed, but they don?t exactly know what it is doing? Or people experience system being much slower? Or something else?

I?ll try to describe my problem linked to Win10 push by MS.

After installing a number of updates that accumulated over past six or so weeks, my Windows Update screen (Windows 7) changed appearance. That Windows Update screen used to show available updates ? important and optional. You would then click on a link that would show the whole listing of available updates. You would be able to select KBs that you want, OK it, and when back into Windows Update screen, run/execute whatever KBs you selected in the previous screen.

With recent KB installs, that Windows Update screen doesn?t show any more available updates ? important and optional. Instead, in that space it says ?Upgrade to Windows 10?. Where button to install updates used to be, now there is button that says ?Get started?, indicating that you would start upgrade to Win10.

Under that box, there is a link that says ?Show all available updates?. When I click on it, I do get familiar screen, with all available (Win7) updates. If I select any of those updates and go back to initial Windows Update screen, I see again ?Upgrade to Windows 10? and not what used to be (from memory): e.g. ? 12 imp... Read more

Hello. I have a couple questions, or rather a couple problems, and I'm having trouble trying to solve the issues. One is related to the account or user on my PC and the other is related to my sound card no longer being picked up by Windows.

I'll start with the first problem.
1. I recently updated my Windows 10 installation to version 1709 (OS build 16299.125, as it says in Winver). It updated fine but I noticed that when I logged onto my PC's main user account everything was changed... All of the shortcuts on my desktop had been removed except for a few installed programs, the quick-start items that I had organized in the start menu were gone, even the desktop background and Firefox browser bookmarks were gone.

After doing some digging I noticed that these old settings/files are still on my computer but are in a different location. Originally, the file path of my computer was simply called "Owner", which is where all of the bookmarks, shortcuts and so on were ( Local Disk (C: ) > Users > Owner) but there's also a new one called "Owner.OWNER-PC" (Local Disk (C: ) > Users > Owner.OWNER-PC). I can browse through the Owner location, and if I click on the Desktop link, or Local Disc (C: ) > Users > Owner > Desktop, I can see that all of the old shorcuts and such are there, and I'm assuming settings as well (and maybe, hopefully, my internet bookmarks).

I finally got windows to update. Everything was great. I changed the settings to "Let me choose..... ". Everything was still great. Then I unticked the box about getting Microsoft Software updates because I didn't think I would need software updates. It flashed a warning at me but I thought it was just about the software so hit OK anyway. I then lost the last two boxes you normally see on that update page. Got them back by installing Silverlight again. Have them ticked again. But now, when I go to the Windows Update page it constantly shows me a big red X. I got to change settings and put it to fully automatic, hit ok... but it won't save that change. It shows me the red X again.

Yet, when I look at the GWX panel it shows I have updates set on Automatic (photos attached). So I have no idea what is going on. I"ve tried a few fixes..... did a Windows update trouble shoot thing through Microsoft that said it had fixed 3 issues (don't know what now didn't take a screen shot sorry) and that made the update page look even worse. Now is says I've never updated etc (photo attached).

I want to reset my Windows Update to my previous setting prior to Office 2010 installation.
I have always chosen the Windows Update Option "Let me know of updates but chose when to download and install "
After installation of Office 2010 this is now set to "Never Check for updates" and the box is greyed out with no option to change and also now says "Some settings are managed by your system administrator". This was never the case prior to the Office 2010 install.Now I have to manually check for updates.

That looks like the screen you get from an Standard User account, rather than an Admin account.

I can tell you categorically that Office didn't make the changes you're seeing there. It may however be malware.

Please download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (free version) from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/ - UNtick 'Enable free trial of MBAM Premium' at the end of the installation - and update it, then run a full scan in your main account, and Quick scans in any other user accounts.

Hi, and thanks in advance...

Much of this is a repeat to other threads, until the graphic driver problem at the end...

(I also have an Ubuntu partition.)

I'd left my mp3 player plugged in overnight + an Asus Xonar DAC in a usb hub, when Windows wanted to do an update and conflict over drivers ensued. Strange, because I've selected for notification before updating. Also, have not been successful installing any new updates since the end of May. Was seemingly a common problem, I checked into it, too busy/lazy to pursue and succeed. This part is confusing...?

Woke up to blasting fans and unplugged everything peripheral. First, tried setting back to restore points prior to that night - twice. Could restart in Safe Mode and with networking. Then, could restart normally - but, shutdowns after 20 minutes or so.

Got crash logs, saw driver conflicts (not found) - saved.

Came here, read threads, did restart at Last Known Good Configuration. Restart - Nvidia Geforce driver not found. Went to Asus site, downloaded and installed driver (not lastest version, but last approved version and not much later than one that was installed).

It then went into a system cycled start/restart/etc. attempting to find driver, fix itself - forced to do shutdown to stop it.

Restarted this morning in Safe Mode, followed your instructions for posting. It's been running in safe mode for about 20 minutes now.

Hi,
I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number 8.15.10.1590. So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

I'm not sure if they are related.

When I run in safemode I do not get the BSOD. When in normal mode I will get BSOD consistently when running Norton Full System Scan, specifically when the full system scan gets to the Windows/system32 folder.

A:Unable to install Windows Update: Update Kernel-mode driver framework

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

I have a P51 20HH and it refuses to update to Windows 10 1903 due to a complaint of an old version of the Intel RST driver.  I tried following all the instructions to update the driver at both the Intel site, and the official RST driver here on the Lenovo site for P51 downloads.  None actually did anything.  They appeared to work, but actually didn't do anything because the driver update software didn't see any hardware to update.  I turned on debug output on the driver update script and it basically said nothing was applied since there was nothing to do. In my case with the P51 20HH, the driver files are all there but there is zero evidence (Device Manger, etc) that any of them are in use.  I don't have Optane, RAID, etc.  Microsoft update sees the driver as an old version so it won't do the Windows update.  Meanwhile, the Intel driver install packages don't see the driver as usable, so it won't apply the update!  It is a lock out.  So, my solution for the P51 20HH was to rename C:\Windows\System32\drivers\iaStorA.sys to something else.   Proceed with caution with this solution, because if your machine is really using RST, this could cause your storage to become inaccessable, which might put you in a bad boot loop and require a BIOS boot to recovery media.  You should absolutely verify that Device Manager (Storage controllers) does not list anything Intel.  Renaming the driver requires admin priv...

Recently Windows updated my Intel HD Graphics 630 driver. A few days later the same driver was released on Dell's driver support page.
Is there any correlation between Windows Update and Dell's drivers? Who does update the drivers Microsoft themselves or Dell needs to release the driver to Microsoft?
As this is the first time when Windows updated the driver is this how the Intel HD Graphics drivers are to be kept up-to-date via Windows Update?

A:Windows Update vs Dell Update - Intel HD Graphics 530/630 Driver

ZINGAM,
Referring to the Intel HD graphics driver.
Windows gets code from Intel for the driver and they will implement it in the OS. Dell also gets code from Intel and will release it. Also, Intel will post the driver on their site to download. You can uninstall the Microsoft driver if you choose and install the Dell update driver.

Windows Update is not telling me I need or can update my Wireless networking, but Intel's Update Driver Utility says I should and is offering the update. How would you recommend I proceed?

A:Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

Hi,
I see that in the Anniversary I can't no more AVOID the automatic search and download of drivers.

I want to STOP this, I want myself to choice my driver and update them.

I read that in "gpedit.msc" > "Windows Update" > "Do not include drivers with WU" > ENABLE

And I did, BUT, Windows Update still see drivers to update such Intel HD, Touchpad, etc.

On Windows 10 Pro, Version 1511, Build 10586, I've hidden troublesome Nvidia driver updates, using the wushowhide troubleshooter package for Windows 10.

Even with the updates hidden, the next time an update check/cycle is triggered, the Nvidia driver updates are detected and installed. Upon rebooting normally after the driver updates are installed, I see a Windows STOP error (blue screen of death) shortly after signing on Windows.

I can remove the driver updates by uninstalling the associated applications/packages through the Programs and Features control panel. I've also tried to first remove the display adapter in Device Manager, selecting the option to Delete the driver software for this device then removing the associated applications/packages in Programs and Features. As long as I do this before rebooting (after the driver updates are installed), I don't see STOP errors and I can then install an older Nvidia driver that works without STOP errors. If the driver update happens to slip in unnoticed, I can reboot in Safe Mode, sign on and proceed with driver application/package removal, then reboot normally.

The latest (but older) Nvidia driver published by Dell for this laptop apparently works fine (no STOP errors):

But the latest "compatible" Nvidia driver from Windows Update produces frustrating STOP errors, resulting in a largely unusable system:

I've also tried this method to blocking/hiding the Nvidia driver updates, but the result is the same: W... Read more

A:Can't hide NVIDIA driver update in Windows Update

I'm cautiously optimistic I found a reasonable workaround (requires the Pro edition of Windows), by using AppLocker to disallow executables signed by Nvidia to run. This way I can leave the Windows Update service enabled and don't need to constantly fight the Nvidia driver updates that I supposedly "hid" using the wushowhide troubleshooter. For anyone else in this or a similar predicament:

Right-click the Start button and click Run, or use the + R keyboard shortcut to open the Run command dialog.

In the Open text box, type gpedit and click OK.

Expand Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Application Control Policies > AppLocker > Executable Rules. Right-click in the pane on the right and click Create New Rule... In my case, I created a Publisher rule with action Deny for Everyone, and used an Nvidia driver installer file as the reference file to capture the Publisher information.

Create exceptions as necessary. Since I want the older (already installed) Nvidia driver of my choice to function, I created a wildcard Path exception for the Nvidia Program Files folder.



Hope this is helpful...

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

A:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

VGA driver Update for windows 10

I have upgraded to Windows 10 from Widows 8.1 (pre-installed) , on my "ACER Aspire E1 472P- 6491" laptop by taking advantage of the free upgrade offer and successfully activated Windows 10 .

As per ACER ( Acer | explore beyond limits ) , the VGA driver for windows 10 should be updated ( downloaded & installed ) to ?NVIDIA VGA Driver 10, ver- 18.13.5350? . The Laptop "ACER Aspire E1 472P- 6491" has got ? INTEL HD Graphics Card ? .

I want to know if ?NVIDIA VGA Driver 10, ver- 18.13.5350? will be suitable for the INTEL card/hardware ? Will this not create any display or other problems later . I have come to know that many people have faced problems after upgradation of BIOS & drivers. Shall welcome comments from experts and/or someone who has upgraded VGA drivers after Windows 10 installation . Thanks

A:VGA driver Update for windows 10

I usually let Windows sort out the drivers during the upgrade and let it run for a while. Often the default choice of driver by Windows will be fine. Certainly in your case the nVidia driver would not be the right choice for the Intel graphics card.
