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.)

Dear nedret,

Welcome in lenovo community,

Based on official list of Lenovo systems supported for Windows 10, the G580 is not listed which means most things may work, but we may not have drivers and support for all features and will be limited in our ability to provide Windows 10 support.

In many cases, the Windows 8/8.1 drivers will work.

Also try to Run windows update, sometimes it helps,

Click Start Menu >> Settings >> Update and Security >> Windows Update >> Check for Updates >> Install Updates.

If it does not help, My advice to you, is to go back to the previous windows (Before windows 10 Upgrade) to have all the functions of the laptop working.

I just installed a new HD 6670 into my computer, but the computer won't use it. Instead, it's defaulting to the onboard graphics. When I turned the computer on for the first time with the new card, Windows detected the new device and installed drivers. I installed drivers off of the CD that came with it anyway. After restarting, I could no display from the new card. I switched the monitor input to the onboard and checked Device Manager and the only video adapter shown was the onboard graphics. I downloaded the latest drivers from AMD, installed, and restarted. Same thing. I restarted and went into the BIOS and set it to pull graphics from the PCI slot first. Still nothing. I unplugged the VGA from the onboard and restarted with nothing but an HDMI going from the card to the monitor and still no display. The BIOS version is up to date. I don't really understand why Windows would recognize a new device, but then not recognize it at the same time.

A:New card, Windows recoginzed it, but isn't listed in Device Manager

Disable the on-board in BIOS, you don't use both, once you add a PCIe card.

I had some trouble last night and today with getting rid of a virus. Now that it is gone, I am having sound problems (maybe related, maybe not). This morning, when I opened iTunes I got a message that there was no audio device detected. After trying several things, I rebooted. Magically, I could play music again. However, a short while later, I again got an error message telling me that there is no audio device found, even though it shows up in Device Manager as working properly. The problem goes away for a short time after I reboot, but returns. It is Realtek AC 97. Why won't my computer keep recognizing it?

(It tried going to Realtek's site to download an update. It has updates for Windows 98, 95, etc., but not for XP. Or at least I couldn't find it.)

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look here: http://support.asus.com/Download.asp...52Jc&p=3&s=245

Select your operating system from the drop-down list, expand the VGA category and download whichever drivers you want.

I'd be inclined to save them before you install them in case you need them in the future.

XP Pro - I had to replace a wireless optical mouse - now using MS Wireless Optical Mouse 2000. It came with a new receiver.

Now the keyboard MS Wireless Keyboard 3000 won't work. It is not listed in Device Manager and the Hardware section of Keyboard in Control Panel does not list it under Hardware though under Wireless it says the battery level is high.

If I use the original Receiver, nothing works.

I tried re-installing MS IntelliType Pro 5.5 for both but only the mouse works.

Any ideas?

I'm using an dell inspiron laptop with windows vista. Few days back, installed windows Xp professional successfuly. The main purpose I installed xp was to program a microcontroller via the com ports. But to my surprise the com ports were not listed in the device manager in XP! Any help??

A:COM Ports not listed in device manager

Are you sure the laptop actually has a COM Port? Finding a laptop with a COM port newer than a Pentium III model is rare, as they have been all but replaced by USB.

Make sure you're not confusing a VGA port for a COM port. Same size and shape but the VGA has 3 rows of contacts (15 total) instead of 2 rows of contacts (9 total) for a COM port.

If the laptop shipped with Vista I'd be surprised if it did. Even many 4-5 year old laptops that shipped with XP don't have a COM port.

If it does have a COM port, check in the BIOS to make sure it's not disabled

A:CDRW/DVD not listed in device manager


This is a common problem with a simple solution. In Device Manager make sure that DMA is OFF for the CDROM. Also update IDE drivers.
Also try hitting the Windows Key (on keyboard) and Pause key at the same time, or go to control panel and open System. Go to device manager and locate your CD-Rom Drive. D-click it and go to the settings tab. There should be a box where you can check/uncheck Removable. Mine is greyed out so I can't do anything to it. See if your is checked and uncheck it. If not, let us know.

Good luck,

Hey guys, I Recently had Windows 7 installed on one of my computers but the computer isn't very good so I downgraded back to windows xp sp2.

My problem is after Windows Xp installs on this computer it doesn't detect my network device. What I mean by this is there is no network tab or anything listed in the device manager.

My ethernet is built into my mboard which is an EVGA nf66.

I've tried installing all sorts of drivers and combinations of the such and nothing seems to work. The internet worked fine prior to installed xp and has had xp before without this problem.

Also, in the device manager there are 3x devices that are listed with yellow exclamation marks beside them that I am unsure what they are.

-PCI device
-other pci bridge device
-sm bus controller

I previously had another computer with this same exact problem that I couldn't fix as well, the only way I could fix it was to install windows 7.

Please help guys I really need this to work.

Hi everyone !I decided to upgrade my laptop cpu from Pentium B970 to i7 3610qm, so i explored the forum and didn't find though a relevant answer and i decided to ask if someone have or had the same model and upgraded their laptop to that CPU ?My motherboard has an HM76 Express Chipset so the i7 3610qm is supported, the difference is that i7 3610qm is 45W power but Pentium B970 is 35W, also the cooling system on my laptop is combined for CPU and GPU (that on some forums i find, it says that this TDP package is for 45W CPU's), and another question is may there be some bios block for the i7 CPU ? Because i studied the manual from this link: https://download.lenovo.com/consumer/mobiles_pub/lenovo_g480_g485_g580_g585_g780_hmm_v1.0_english.pd...and there is only i7 3612qm listed there as highest CPU supported.

I'm really stuck, so I'd appreciate help if someone can give it.

I'm working on someone's computer. I should mention that I am doing this remotely, & I don't have another choice just now.

Due to a whole mess that with his computer, we needed to do a full destructive installation of windows. (XP Pro SP2)

Now, here's the problem. There were no USB devices listed in the device manager in windows after the new installation. There also aren't any unknown devices. There had been one, for audio, but I've fixed that.

The computer is older & the motherboard is a Microstar International MS-6738. I went to their site. i've run their live update multiple times but it just isn't finding anything missing regarding usb controllers and I did the 3 available updates for the motherboard. They didn't seem related, but i tried just in case. No luck, besides of course the audio working.

At this point I'm really at a loss. I feel like throwing the computer out the window, except I can't even reach it to do that! lol

Any ideas? Thanks for spending the time, for anyone who read this.
I did also run belarc advisor. If it would help, ask & i'll post it, as long as that's ok on this board.

I recently replaced a Logitech mouse with a MS Wireless 5000. After initially installing the 5000, I found that in device manager it was listed twice. This didn't seem to be causing any problems and I left it alone but have since had a few BSODs. Wasn't having any problems before the mouse install.

So I went into device manager and uninstalled one of the entries but did not delete the drivers.

On reboot, there are now two entries again but one is "HID compliant mouse" and the other is "Microsoft USB Dual Receiver Wireless Mosue (IntelliPoint)".

Is it normal to have both of these items listed? If not, how do I stop Windows from installing the second driver on every reboot?

A:2 mouse drivers listed in device manager

Both entries refer to the same mouse and should be left alone.

Your new mouse is a "HID compliant mouse" like every modern mouse, so Windows loads it's own driver for that.

But you've also installed the Intellipoint driver which accounts for the second entry in the 'Mice' category of Device Manager.

I also use a MS wireless mouse but I didn't have to install a driver for it. Windows took care of that (Windows 7), so my Device Manager shows only one mouse entry which is "HID compliant device".

Unless your MS mouse has any special functions with extra buttons, it should work perfectly well for standard functions without the Intellipoint software & driver, in which case you too would have only one mouse entry in Device Manager.

I'm am trying to update my firmware for my Sony Optiarc 5500s... basically my Blue Ray dvd rom drive for my Laptop (Asus M70-B1) because a blue ray dvd is not working properly. When Windvd BD starts playing the dvd It says that it could have a 2-3 minute load time based upon the compatabilities of my hardware. It gets through the previews fine but it will not load the main menu of the movie and after a short period of time my Blue Ray dvd rom spins down and ceases to do anything. I let the black screen sit for well over 5-7 minutes and still nothing.

I assume that a firmware upgrade could fix it. I went to


and got my firmware upgrade. It is a flashing tool and when I clicked flash it said "updated failed".
They give an update procedure here:

My problem is that I cannot disable DMA on my DVD rom because I have no channels listed under my "Ide ata/atapi controllers"
I have "Intel(r) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller" (which doesn't seem to contain anything useful" and then controllers for my multi card reader.

My DVD Rom drive is on channel 1. It's using the basic windows drivers and it explains this here:

I'm running Vista Home Premium, Motherboard is Intel PM45 Montevina

A:No IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers listed in my Device Manager

Contact Sony about the issue, it is a Sata Optical drive, and XP-Vista has no method to change the UDMA setting on Sata devices.


The only other suggestion is if there is a way to change it in the bios, unlikely.

2. While it has a wifi network connection (which works fine), it doesn't seem to have any listing for ethernet (ie wired) connection. (even though it has the port for wired access.)

3. When i look under computer/device manager/networks, all i get is the wifi atheros 9485 network adaptor. There is no other listing. (see attched file for screen grabs)
4. Am i missing something obvious with all this? The Asus website has examples of this model with screen grab which includes an ethernet adaptor as well (see attached file)

Note that laptop is labelled as an X53 series but in the computer it get listed as a K53e - nice and confusing.

Hello Everyone,

I have a Compaq Presario F553US running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 Bit, I just installed a new copy of the OS so I know this is not virus related. I cannot get my wirless card to be detected in the device manager. I downloaded the drivers and HP Wirless Assistant and still nothing. So I thought maybe the wirless card was bad and replaced it with a new card. But still nothing, I even checked the BIOS to make sure that the wirless was enable and it was.

So now I have no idea was this suddenly stop working, the light on the front (next to the wireless switch) is an orange color instead of blue. Do anyone have any ideas on how to resolve this problem.

I am having a slight issue with my new setup, appears to be driver-side. Every time I restart my computer a window pops up stating that a driver could not be installed for "IDE channel." This box appears six times in which I have to close out. There are six of these "IDE channel" devices listed (under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers) in the Device Manager w/ the little (!) next to them. When I go to install a driver for each of the devices I get "driver is not intended for this platform" or something like that. I don't know what I should do because I'm really not sure what I am looking at exactly. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I've installed all the drivers for my motherboard, graphics cards, and sound card ...all of which work fine. In the Device Manager, I am also seeing two "PCI device" and a single "Unknown" device. The only PCI card I have installed is the Sound Blaster and I installed the drivers for that; it works fine. No idea what the "Unknown" is...

While exploring Device Manager today in my Win 8.1 system I discovered I had three entries listed under Sound, Video and Game Controllers:

(1) AMD High Definition Audio Device
(2) CyberLink WebCam Virtual Driver
(3) Realtek High Definition Audio
Every now and then when my wife is playing some of her Facebook games she says the computer will shut down and restart with a message similar to: "Your PC ran into some problems and needs to restart. We will correct them and restart for you." She says that message is preceded by what looks like a 'sad' happy face.

As an added note in Device Manager under Audio inputs and outputs both my Microphone and Speakers are controlled by Realtek High Definition Audio.

That being said do I really need the two Sound Cards (1) and (3)? If not, which one could I disable?

Thanks and regards,

A:Two sound cards listed in Device Manager

The AMD High Definition Audio Device is for HDMI audio.
The Cyberlink Webcam is for your web cam.

Nothing there that is duplicate or needs disabling.

The problem with the PC ran into some problems has nothing to do with audio. Can't say what that is but its for one of the other forum sections that deals with crashes.

i'm using windows 7 64-bit. i've tried uninstalling one of each but they immediately reappear. another odd issue is that if enable the usb keyboard wake option in bios, the computer won't sleep while having 2 of each device listed under device manager. if i disable the wake option in bios, the computer will sleep but i can't wake the computer with the keyboard which i need to do since my power button doesn't work. there was a short period in which i had only 1 of each device listed in the device manager and the sleep and wake processes worked fine. i'm not sure what happened to cause 2 keyboards and 2 mice to appear. any tips?

intel 2 quad 9650
6gb ram
ati 4850 x 2
dfi x48 t2r motherboard

A:2 HID keyboards and mice listed in device manager

I have Windows 7 x64 as well and have 3 each HID keyboards and mice. This is normal for me (four different installs on two computers) and is a result of other Human interface devices (HID). One is an IR remote control.

With all above, my sleep works fine.

In the device manager, select view by connection and see which device is attached to these entries.

I think I have Bluetooth ability but I can't seem to find any evidence of this in the Device Manager. Where would it generally be located?

Thank you

A:Where sould my Bluetooth hardware be listed in Device Manager?

BT shows up in the DM only when enabled. There should be a switch to enable it. I have it in my lappy, once enabled, it showed in my DM. Before that, no trace of it.

Also check whether you have installed the drivers. Try re-installing them.

I have a Dell Inspiron M731R laptop upgraded from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 Home 64-Bit that suddenly quit connecting to the home network. Was using wireless, so switched to an Ethernet cable, but still no luck. I just discovered that ALL of the network-related devices are now listed under an "Unknown" tab in the Device Manager. A check of properties of each item in that folder says they are all working properly, but that obviously isn't the case. I tried uninstalling each of the 4 items, but when they are recognized again they still show up under the Unknown tab. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi, I've had a Lenovo G510  for about 18 mths. Not used wifi yet as I have a wired connection in my house. Decided to check out the wifi today but I can't find a way to turn it on and I can't find any wireless device listed in Device Manager. All I have under "Network adapters" - are: Qualcomm Atheros AR8172/8176/8178 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller Also no "Other Devices" or Unknown devices listed either. I've tried scanning for hardware changes but no luck. Why can't windows find the wireless card? It was advertised as coming with a built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi adapter. I'm on Windows 8.1. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

A:Lenovo G510 windows 8 cd/dvd not detected & also not shown in device manager

Hi Amitkd44,
Welcome to the Community Forums.
Try to check first if the DVD drive show up in the BIOS (FN + F2 on restart or from off status using the Novo button).
This would allow you if the physical dvd device is mechanically detected by the motherboard and is not related to any drivers or Operating System.
Initial tab should show the same drive listed along with the harddrive within the BIOS screen.
If so, then reseating the drive (removing and placing it back making sure contact points are secured.
Here is the hardware manual that can help as a guide.
Update us soon as convenient.

I have an Inspiron 1420 with built-in bluetooth.

I recently upgraded to Windows 7 from Vista and the bluetooth does not work anymore.

1 Bluetooth does not appear in device manager or control panel anymore
2 The 'Radio On-Off' switch on the front of the laptop no longer controls the bluetooth
--a. Dell Quickset switch options does not let me select Bluetooth
3 The WIDCOMM bluetooth software does not even open on my computer anymore
--a. I uninstalled WIDCOMM in order to install the latest driver from Dell
--b. I cannot finish installing this driver (R140135) because it tells me to turn on the blutooth hardware using Fn+F2 (my keyboard does not have this shortcut)
4 I have tried using the BTW bluetooth patch from Dell but it does not work (R159805)

Essentially, my computer does not seem to know that there is bluetooth hardware built into it. The 'bluetooth sensor light' (next to the power and wifi lights) has remained off since I installed windows 7.

I would appreciate if someone could provide a solution to my problem. Please let me know if you require more information on my laptop

A:Bluetooth Disappeared from Device Manager After Windows 7 Upgrade

You are not going to like this answer, but it is the best and almost all would agree. You made a mistake when you upgraded, you should do a clean install. This is just the beginning of the problems.

Do it over. Do a clean install. I know you dont want to install programs, again, etc. But it is for the best. That is the only way to fix this and everything else that will happen.

I upgraded to windows 10 a few months ago and thought everything was fine.  Finally, had to use my SD card slot post upgrade and it doesn't work.   It does not show up in the device manager so I think it is a chipset driver problem.  I ran the Dell Command upgrade and it says I need the CPNKY driver but it keeps failing the installation.  Error code 7.  Update package digital signature is invalid.  I have other coworkers with the same exact model with the same exact problem after upgrade to windows 10.

Please check the System Setup(BIOS) by typing msinfo32 into the Cortana bar. You should see the BIOS version, please write it down. While you at it, you might as well write down the Build version.

Just bought a Dell inspiron 15 5567 with Radeon 445m video card. But I noticed in device mange, it also lists the generic/built in intel graphics under display adapters. 

How do I know which display adapter it is utilizing, they both say they are running. I am going to game with it, and don't want to be using the wrong video card.

A:Multiple "video cards" listed in device manager

It depends.  Most of the time the system will automatically use the best card for the purpose, meaning if you are gaming it will use the AMD card and if your just staring at your desktop or watching a movie the Intel one.  Some computers (generally not laptops) will use the best card all the time and 'disable' the on board graphics.

device manager under my Network adapter. I have my Intel Ethernet adapter listed and then underneath the bang with WAN Miniport (IP) #2. When I check the properties of the device It says it is not working properly. When I attempt to uninstall the device it tells me that the device cannot be removed because it is required to boot the system.

A:device manager under my Network adapter. I have my Intel Ethernet adapter listed and

go into your bios and under boot options, remove network/internet as a boot option if it is listed.
