Cannot Run Windows Update - Windows 7 (AHCI driver update)

Q: Cannot Run Windows Update - Windows 7 (AHCI driver update)

Hello all

I have an HP Dx7500 that run perfectly.
Before making any change i made a checkpoint for future restore. Than i update my AHCI driver (Instead regular IDE) to "Intel ICH/10R SATA AHCI controller" and windows update can't run, no error.. just clicking and nothing move.
I fix it for now with system restore.. but i want my hardware to be most updated.

Any idea?

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.)

I just got an E540 and upon a Windows install, after updating the AHCI driver, the screen glitches out (crazy colors, lines, etc) and the system locks up. After a reboot, during Windows startup, the screen glitches out again and it completely powers off. System restore removes the driver and restores the ability to boot. I've installed the driver from both Lenovo and a newer one from Intel and get the same result.Windows has the driver already and I'm not opposed to leaving it the way it is, I'm just really wondering about this issue and would like to eventually update.This happens on both Windows 7 and Windows 10, by the way. Thanks in advance! -Randy

I am unable to update the Kernel-mode driver framework ver 1.11 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (KB2685811). I get error: 80073712

Also, I am getting BSOD/stop errors in normal mode that say anything from:

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.

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:

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...

Hi,

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.

Hi smalis,Your image shows two Microsoft updates:1) MS Security Essentials virus definition update.

This type of driver from a stability and reliability standpoint is best obtained from the manufacturer of your motherboard or the manufacturer of your computer system (Dell, HP, etc) if it is OEM.

A:[SOLVED! Windows Update BUG!] Windows Update Failure [7SP1 x64] KB4074598 [HRESULT = 0x80004005 - E_FAIL]

Solved, 2 months later! After 3 dist upgrades!
So I finally solved this Windows / Update BUG, it and it was as simple as this; set peerdissvc (under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\) (aka branchcache as it is known under services.msc) from disabled back to manual, along with its
dependency http, to manual. I'm quite sure setting branchcache to manual was all that was necessary for the fix to take place; I also had set "not configured" to alll changes I had made to "Background Intelligence Transfer Service" under
group policy regarding peer caching. I had tried the latter before the last 3 distupgrades and it did not make any difference; so it seems windows update fails if you disable branchcache, which is typically only used by businesses anyway, so many people recommend
to disable it, for security reasons also. What a headache; I spent at least a 80 hours, and weeks, and months trying to figure this one out; Windows update has turned into a bunch of bull***** with their ROLLUPS; one error on one of 130 little updates and
the whole shebang goes down with the ship; dumbest idea ever for their update platform; they should change to individual updates and do it quick.

This is a MICROSOFT WINDOWS UPDATE BUG. You shouldn't have to enable or disable any built in windows service to get a "windows" update working. What a headache.

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.

Windows Update has lost my update history and hangs when I tell it to check for updates. Windows Update Troubleshooter reports "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P) Not Fixed". How can I get Windows Update working again?


Here is a detailed account of the problem:
Earlier today, I ran Windows Update and told it to install 15 important updates. It said it was downloading them, but stalled for 30 minutes at 0% done.
I rebooted my computer and re-ran Windows Update. It reported that there were no pending important updates. I clicked "View update history" and saw that the most recent 15 important updates had failed. I clicked "Check for Updates" and,
when it finished checking, Windows Update continued to report that there were no pending important updates.
At that point, I concluded that something was wrong with Windows Update. In an attempt to fix it, I downloaded and ran the Windows Update Troubleshooter (WindowsUpdateDiagnostic.diagcab). It reported one problem found: "Windows Update error 0x80070057(2016-07-15-T-12_59_34P)
Not Fixed".
After running Windows Update Troubleshooter, I re-ran Windows Update. It reported that my most recent check for updates was "Never", and that updates were installed "Never". When I clicked "View update history" I saw an empty
list. When I clicked "Check for updates", the applicat... Read more

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)

Help.
I was at the Windows Update site and a new driver was available for my ATI Video Card. I downloaded the update and when I reboot I get the New Hardware found. The wizard starts but no new driver is found no matter where I look. Cancelling the Wizard does no good as it keeps popping back up (7 times). Now I have seven "?" devices. Every reboot brings the New Hardware scenario back again.

Where can I find the files I need to delete to resolve this problem.

Thanks

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.

Does anyone else with a HP23se All-in-One PC using Windows 10 operating system continue to have problems with driver updates?  My computer doesn't appear to be compatiable with some driver udpates and support has told me that I will have re-install old drivers every 14-15 days for the system to operate properly.  I've only have the computer for 6 months and this has been an issue since the first month.  I'm interested in knowing if anyone has found a solution other than calling tech support each time.

A:windows xp driver update

Lots of reasons for a slow computer. it might need more ram, disk cleanup, defragged, or a lot of stuff in the documents folder that can be moved to another media like a cd/dvd etc.if the drivers are working fine theres usually no need to update them. but you can go to the website of who made your computer and see if theres newer versions available.

Hello all, I need alot of help here.
I have never encountered anything like this before.  Created a clean windows 7 image did everything that we normally do to the image.  Ran windows updates to get everything up to date, did NOT get the latest drivers for the hardware.  Captured
the imaged, MDT latest version, and deployed it to a couple of test machines.  Here is where I am running into a problem...
I am unable to update any drivers on either of the machines.  Getting the same symptom when the image comes from a Virtual machine.  Checked the Group Policy to make sure that everything under the device configuration was set to no.

People,

My video card is an nVidia GeForce4 MX 420; & I've had some performance problems lately related to a digital audio multitracking app upgrade (SONAR XL 2.2 > SONAR4.) Because of a more graphic intensive design, normal functions (scrolling, navigation, playback, etc.) bogg down redraw & slow overall operation.

Wanting to have the latest video driver, I went to the nVidia site & downloaded v6.6.9.3. This was three weeks ago.

Today, Windows Update kicked in; & a scan of my system revealed I needed the latest Windows video driver for the nVidia GeForece4 MX 420...v52.16 ???

So my questions are:

1) First of all...why the difference (in #'s) between the two versions? (are they different?)
2) Does the Windows Update function for this area kick in because my machine came with this video card from Dell...as installed in the new machine? (or...does it somehow recognize the Dell OEM XP OS?)
3) Why is Windows prompting me to download this driver anyway...doesn't it recognize the driver from nVidia as the latest version?
4) Which is a better driver (Mfg. or Windows)?

Thanks,

A:AGP Driver Update: Mfg. or Windows?

I almost never use Windows Update to get driver updates. The latest and best source for a driver is from the manufacturer. In this case its NVIDIA. Microsoft does not always have the latest driver listed in Windows Update and their method of determining version numbers is badly flawed. The drivers on Windows Udpate are still supplied by the manufacturer(NVIDIA).

Your new driver is 66.93, the other is 52.16 so your current driver is newer. Now newer does not mean better. You can choose to install the MS provided driver and see if it resolves your issues.

Nvidia also lists older drivers for download, users of older cards sometimes find they work better then new drivers which are aimed more at new video cards, the 52.16 is listed there as well:
http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp-2k_archive.html

Also, see if you have DirectX 9.0c installed. Go to Start -> Run -> DXDIAG and see what version it lists. You can also run through some video and sound diagnostics there. DirectX should be listed as a Windows Udpate but not a Critical one, run the Custom scan at the Windows update site.
