Q: Flex 2 15 - windows update keeps offering me ethernet driver update even with current driver

I have a FLEX 215 running the new Creators Update. After I installed this update, Windows update keeps offering me the ethernet driver even though I already have this latest ethernet driver already installed. I tried downloading the latest ethernet driver from Lenovo website and went through setup steps and repair option. When I checked again it did not says "Windows is up to date and the time". It kept trying to install the ethernet driver.

Is this happening to anybody else? Please help

I recently updated my Intel HD to 7/3/2012, the only problem I seem to have is that windows update keeps bugging me to install a older 2010 version, why is it doing that and should I just ignore it.

A:windows update keeps offering older video card driver

Hello Raymond,

If you are sure that you have the correct and latest driver for that device installed, then you could just hide the update to not see it anymore until the next new (cough) one is released.

Hope this helps,

It would be great if HP included some instructions in their update section to walk us through, step by step, how to install a new driver when the previous one must first be uninstalled. Most updates are just click and download. Nothing else required.  But some of us aren't all that comfortable uninstalling drivers and don't know where to begin.

Hi, Thank you for posting. You should not uninstall previous driver prior to updating new one. In Windows 10 you can install updates via Windows Update or Device Manager (preffered method). Here is how >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03330139 For non-critical, not so important and other updates, you can also use HP Support Assistant (HPSA) >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467905In HPSA, please skip BIOS/UEFI updates.  Hope this helps.

Hey y'all, Bought a Flex 6-14IKB 14" online with a Lenovo Active Pen (1 not 2) which arrived yesterday. Took a little while to pair the pen but worked great after that, downloaded the system recommended Wacom Pen app to change the barrel button funtions (top to Windows Ink workspace and left bottom to Erase). Opened my copy of Photoshop after migrating programs and found that the pen had significant offset issues. Shut down the computer to deal with it today. Booted up today to find no more offset issues in Photoshop miraculously, but also no pressure sensitivity. Messed around in Photoshop settings for a while but couldn't fix it. Opened Wacom Pen App to pay around with barrel button settings and was greeted with a message stating that I needed the Wacom Feel driver to use the Pen App. Clicked link to Wacom Feel update page and downloaded the driver (Wacom Components Driver version: 7.5.1-25) and ran the .exe. I completely missed the section on uninstalling the current driver and restarting the system. Now the barrel buttons don't work on the Active Pen. They're listed on the Wacom Pen App, but I just don't get a response. (In other news, I have pressure sensitivity in Photoshop but the pen simply stops drawing after half a setting. No offset just dots where I started a lIne.) My main issue is the pen, Photoshop is secondary here. Any thoughts?

Hey everyone, hoping I can get some ideas for troubleshooting. I just got gigabit internet installed and my 250 is pulling slower speeds over ethernet than my nexus 6p grabs over wifi. Even stranger is that after checking for and installing the newest driver (though device manager>update driver) it's even slower. I've tried multiple ethernet ports, multiple cables, uninstalling/re-installing the adapter again through device manager, and disabling the wifi adapter all together to run tests.  2 different install techs said that my internet is "fine" but my processor can't "handle" the connection and that's why it's only showing ~200mbps download, but I don't think they're right. I don't know much about computers but I'm cofident this is an impressive machine that is capable of such power. Why give the laptop a gigabit ethernet port if the supporting hardware can't handle it? Am i getting the run around from my install techs or are there any troubleshooting steps I haven't tried? Thanks

hi,

optional windows update download for realtek network ethernet (real name too long) = so i downloaded it and installed and reboot then my internet/ethernet connection no longer worked! had to uninstall that device manaager, then use my gigabyte mobo
disc to reinstall their ethernet device, reboot, and that worked.

wonder why that recommended update didn't work?

also in "view updates" that realtek update showed, but in "uninstall updates" it did not show so I could not uninstall it there.

hmm, anyone else use that download?

also just got a bsod while using windows updates. the system log showed error - computer shut down unexpectedly, but gave no reason lol. it was evidently as surprised as me.

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, 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.

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.

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:

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.

I have just reformatted and reinstalled Windows 7 Professional using a DVD that was purchased in January 2010. I have also accepted numerous Windows Update installations in the course of, I believe, 2 or 3 runs of Windows Update.

Last time I reinstalled (about 4 months ago), I believe I directly downloaded Service Pack 1 and installed it. This time I tried to see what Windows would recommend via Windows Update. I note that the Microsoft website says that Windows Update is the recommended way of obtaining SP1.

I am not being offered Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (KB976932). Does that mean I don't need it?

A:Why is Windows Update not offering me SP1?

Have you checked to see whether it has already been downloaded?

It'll tell you in System Properties under Windows Edition - just press the Win+Pause key combo to see it.

You can also check which updates are installed by checking your updates history or viewing installed updates in Control Panel>Programs>Uninstall A Program>View Installed Updates.

A week ago at regular system update request I installed the offered "Lenovo SSD & HDD Firmware Update Tool"  10.3010 on P50 running Windows 7/64. Message appeared that I needed to remove password on (only) the factory 500GB HDD. Passwords also exist on the two SSD's but no action requested re them. I presumed the SSD updates were installed and I would have to later temporarily remove HDD PW and run the update again. So I removed the HDD PW just now and went to System Update online but message then was that there was nothing for my machine. How do I force installing the update again, if that is the right way to do it. Is there any way to see if it somehow took care of the problem automatically as soon as soon as I removed the PW? Thanks.

I have two machines that are running Windows 7 Home Premium, and both machines are already running SP1. Nevertheless, both machines were offered SP1 as an "important" update in the release this Tuesday. The KB number associated with the update is KB976932, and the Date Published is given as 8/12/2014. The "More Information" link just opens a Microsoft page that describes the scope of the service pack, but gives no indication that it has been recently changed.

So, what to make of this? Has the Microsoft updater somehow lost track of the fact that SP1 has already been installed? Is there any reason to believe that it needs to be reinstalled or somehow updated?

So far, I have not allowed anything in this update batch to be installed.

Hi good people,

So, I'm on here like thousands of others with intermittent wifi issues. I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 yesterday and everything works very well except for losing my wifi connection every 30 minutes to an hour.

My wireless adapter is a Broadcom 802.11n
the driver I'm using is Broadcom version 6.30.223.256

I've updated the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've rolled back the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've even tried a driver directly from the lenovo site that is a Cybertan Liteon driver that is the latest version for windows 8.1.

I've also unchecked the box in the power management page. Then rebooted.

I've also used all the commands, in the command prompt admin that start with 'netsh'. Then rebooted. The same thing still happens.

So, I'm up for new suggestions including compatible drivers from different manufacturers.

I'm really hoping there's a Z585 user on here that has solved this issue. According to the Lenovo web site this particular laptop has the latest drivers on the site and none of them are working so far.

First, is your laptop supported for windows 10 on lenovo website.....meaning are there drivers and software packages for it? Have you tried downloading the 8.1 driver for it and then running it in compatibility mode?

I tried to update my older Radeon ATI 5450 GPU via windows update...

I received the message from windows update, and showed it failed update with the 0x800706be

However when I go to device manager and check the details of the installed driver it clearly shows the new updated version? So I wonder which is correct the device manager showing the new version of the driver or windows update?

A:Failed Update 0x800706be driver...but device mgr shows updated driver?

You can identify the problem using Device Manager, which you can access by:
Opening the Control Panel Window
Selecting and double-clicking System
Clicking Device Manager
In Device Manager check if there is an exclamation point, a yellow triangle, or a question mark against your Dell device. If there is, there is a problem with your Dell device.

I've searched all over the internet for a fix for this and haven't found anything that works yet. I was wondering if anyone else might have some insight as to what may be causing this!

First, what I'm trying to accomplish; The installation of the NVIDIA nforce Networking Controller #2
The Wireless card is working fine for this machine (HP s7600n) so I am able to get internet, however the person whom this PC actually belongs to does not have a wi-fi connection at their house, so the Ethernet port is crucial!

When I try to update and install this driver it completes all of the processes, but in the end is met with "An error occurred during the installation of the device. Access is Denied."

I have gone through REGEDIT to reset permissions, I have gone through REGEDT32 to do the same, I have logged in under Safe Mode to try to install this, have deleted the device, rebooted, reinstalled, created new accounts with Administrative Access... Literally everything I could find online about this issue and NOTHING has worked.

Also to be noted - this is a CLEAN install. And there is only ONE user account. I have also tried everything under the hidden "ADMINISTRATOR" account that shows up in SAFE MODE.

This PC did have Ubuntu 13.04LTS on it, but programs that the owner needs for work are not compatible with the LINUX kernel, and she's not savvy enough to use WINE.

This old laptop is the perfect extra system to have around. Great screen, sound and keyboard/touchpad layout, blah blah ... but:

It has a NVidia GeForce FX Go5600 graphics card.

The history is like this:


Got the laptop from my mother, too heavy for her
worked great until the power socket burned out
had it repaired
the repair guy probably updated my drivers
after that, the screen started showing blotches of kelly green wherever the screen was black, and on white backgrounds, there are pink-purple lines/areas/waves.
I thought the screen was toasted because of something to do with the power, so I attached another monitor - worked fine!
Definitely thought it was toast, but didn't give up
I went to the HP support site and used their scanning tool. They have two drivers listed for my 5600
I downloaded and installed the newer of the two. Same problem
Then I (on a fluke and out of desperation) downloaded and installed the older driver
Voila!! Magic. It worked. Looks gorgeous.

Now, the problem is that once in a while, every few days, the green and pink areas return. I roll back the driver and it's fine again!

How can I delete the BAD drivers which XP is apparently accessing for automatic updates (or something like that)?

How can I "lock" the good driver so that I dont have to roll back to it every few days?

P.S. In my search for answers about the pink and green, I saw MANY posts in different forums with the same problem. Usually the ... Read more

A:GeForce FX go 5600 driver automatic update to wrong driver?

With an old laptop like that, I'd suggest going to the manufacturers site and download their latest driver for that unit first. It may be dated but that's OK. You'll know that that driver is supposed to work, and you can continue on from there. Uninstall the old drivers from the add remove programs app. Then uninstall the GPU from device manager. Run a program like Guru3D - Driver Sweeper to clean up any orphaned files before installing the new drivers. If there is a better more nVidia specific program for cleaning the drivers hopefully one of the regulars here will post a link to it. That utility works on both nVidia and ATI drivers. If the downloaded drivers work you can let it go or start slowly upgrading to newer drivers till you find one you are happy with. There's not really any way to lock a driver. You might be looking at a dying GPU also so keep that in mind.

One other thing. When you reboot after uninstalling the device and drivers and reboot, keep closing the little "found new hardware" balloons in the lower right corner till you get a message "there was a problem loading drivers for this device". That stops the OS from installing generic drivers.

I recently set up a new Dell 7710 Precision Workstation (Xeon E3-1535M v5 w/Intel HD Graphics P530; Nvidia Quadro M5000M; Windows 7 Pro). The Dell Precision Optimizer (DPPO) tells me there are no updates at all (no Critical, Recommended, or Optional). However, the Intel Driver Update Utility tells me I have an older chipset (14.6.1.1030) that should be replaced by a newer chipset (10.0.27). I don't know if the DPPO is taking into account particular aspects of this system that make the 14.6.1.1030 the “correct” (even if not the latest) chipset. Perhaps the DPPO should override the Intel utility. Any thoughts?

I am receiving random BSODs with the subject line description.  My first stop was to the HP Support site to possibly update any drivers (like bios??).  I found many driver updates available, including 2 for the bios.  I really have no clue as to which driver updates to install, even after reading the details.  I looked for where it says recommended or required or something but didn't see it.  I then installed the HP Support Solutions and did a scan to determine what drivers it thought I needed and it came up with none.  Now I'm real confused.  Does that mean all the driver updates on the HP site are just optional?  Can someone provide a good site link to read about how to determine which drivers are needed?  Thank you for your help!

Vantage and Lenovo System Update both use the SU catalog.The SU catalog is updated with the new driver around 30 days after it shows up on the support page.Lenovo must quality test the driver and build .XML entries for the catalog. Thus your support page has the most current drivers.

http://www.infoworld.com/d/security-central/trend-micro-calls-foul-over-microsoft-offering-free-antivirus-software-windows-update-336?source=rss_security_centralMicrosoft this week began offering U.S. customers its free antivirus program via Windows' built-in update service, a move one major security firm said may be anticompetitive.Last Monday, Microsoft started adding Security Essentials to the optional download list seen by U.S. users running Windows XP, Vista, or Windows 7 when they fired up the operating system's update service. The move followed an Oct. 19 kickoff of a similar program in the U.K."Commercializing Windows Update to distribute other software applications raises significant questions about unfair competition," said Carol Carpenter, the general manager of the consumer and small business group at Trend Micro, on Thursday."Windows Update is a de facto extension of Windows, so to begin delivering software tied to updates has us concerned," she added. "Windows Update is not a choice for users, and we believe it should not be used this way."If Windows doesn't detect working security software on the PC, Microsoft adds Security Essentials to the Optional section of Microsoft Update, a superset of the better-known Windows Update, or to Windows Update if it has been configured to also draw downloads from Microsoft Update.More at the link.

A:Trend Micro calls foul over Microsoft offering free AV software via Windows Update

Two comments get my attention in this report, first is "Windows Update is not a choice for users." Windows updates are a choice and can be turned off if one choses to do so. And one can be selective in their updates. Secondly, "If Windows doesn't detect working security software on the PC, Microsoft adds Security Essentials to the Optional section of Microsoft Update". OK, doesn't detect working security software, gee ya know I would feel a lot better knowing people were proactive and securing their machines so malware doesn't spread so easily. With the addition of even some security it would be helpful. And the fact it's free it's available to those who wouldn't buy from Trend anyway. Not everyone is aware of free alternatives. This is educational, and information by any method is power. Last part of #2, "Microsoft adds Security Essentials to the Optional section of Microsoft Update." The key word here for me is Optional. It still allows the user a choice.The fact that MS is offering security for free to those who likely won't be proactive enough to secure their machines is a good thing in my opinion. Those of use who have to deal with the consequences of unsecured malware ridden machines might be able to breathe once in a while.... Yeah right.I think it's a step in the right direction MS. Not perfect and not everyone will agree but I think it is.
