Q: How can I get windows 7 sp1 to load a print driver that's compatible with the HP printer that's on my home network wirelessly. My laptop see's it, but won't load a driver?

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

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'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

A:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

I have a basic hp deskjet d1660. The file downloads fine, extracts and nothing. Ran Combofix, it found infections and resolved but I still can not load my printer. I have tried manually also with no results. I am running Windows 7 64-bit on a gateway laptop. Plenty of memory on this computer. I have an espon scanner installed no prob and the printer is loaded on 2 other laptops no problem.
Thank for any help.

A:Windows doesn't load printer driver

Combofix should be used as part of a malware removal process, not as a standalone tool. The probability that you are still infected with malware is extremely high.
 
I suggest you follow this guide to create a malware removal thread.

Working with a new laptop, Lenova Ideapad 510. Love it ! Migrated over my files, photos, installed Office 2010. I can print to my Canon MX922 using the Microsoft drivers. BUT, I cannot scan documents until I first download Canon drivers. Each time I do, I can download the exe. file and I can run it but then it stops with an error message. Canon Tech support thinks that there is an antivirus software blocking. All I have at the moment is Defender . They have no answer. Hoping you can guide me as you have so often.

Also, should I be supplementing Defender with anything else, like SuperAntiSpyware ?

A:printer driver will not load in XP

Welcome to the board,

Check their website to see if they have released drivers specifically for XP. Like Win2k and NT, allot of the times drives must be custom made for XP, unlike the Win95,98,Me drivers where one size fits all. :D

I am having problems getting a printer driver to load.

I started having problems printing. The pages filled with garbage figured it was the driver so I uninstalled the driver now I can't get driver to reload. The install program runs and acts ok but never adds printer to printer folder.
I have tried to run add printer but it just can't find a driver even when I tell it I have a disk.

The printer is a HP DeskJet 1120C
I am running windows 2000

Thanks

 

A:Printer driver won't load

Are you sure you go through add printer with that particular model. If it's a part of the c series you usually just remove all the old software through control panel - add/remove, Reboot and use your CD software or disks??, and install the software. You don't have to add printer and run software.
Go back into add printer and remove everything but add printer icon, make sure you delete all your software for the printer and reinstall the software. It should acknowledge the printer on Reboot all by itself. We hope...Let us know...Jazz

I was given an old hp deskjet 600c printer ('97). I went to hp website and d/l the driver on my newer computer and burned it on a disk.

I'm trying to install it on an old IBM computer ('96) running Win 95 (Can't get on the net with it). It does not recognise and try to install it when I boot. Normally all I do is put the CD in the drive, click on the icon for the driver I want to install and it installs.

When I do that for this driver, a box pops up that says it cannot create directory. When I click OK, it comes right back again. I keep clicking OK, and I can see on the install box behind this error box that it is extracting the files. A blue line is moving across the install box. Every time I click OK it moves a little farther. When it reaches 100% both boxes disappear.

I got the printer to work by installing the highest number deskjet listed in the Add New Hardware box (560c), but I would like to have the right driver installed. The driver that Windows is installing is prob 6.1, and the one I d/l is 7.0. I went back to HP website, but couldn't find anything specific.

I thought I might be able to update the driver after installing what Windows had, but I still had the same prob.

Would appreciate any help.

I bought my mom a printer for her "new" computer. It was given to her by another family member, so it is not fresh from the factory.

Her computer is a Dell mini-tower with a P4/1.8ghz, 512 ram, and XP (SP2). It has four USB ports.

I purchased the Canon iP1600 printer. Followed the installation directions to run the CD and then connect the USB cable and turn on the printer. It would not recognize the printer was connected. I tried all of the USB ports and had no luck.

I bought a new USB mouse and it readily worked in the USB ports.

I downloaded the latest drivers from the Canon site. When I ran it, it recognized the printer was connected, but stated that it could not install the driver due to a data error.

Restarts did not change the results.

I don't know if it means anything, but when I tried to manually select the correct port the printer was attached to , it only offered the parallel and serial ports, not the USB ports.

Is there something simple I am missing?
 

A:Can't get printer driver to load

Run msconfig and select "launch system restore"

Select "create restore point"; name it anything you like. Then do a test restore to it. If the restore completes successfully, follow the rest of these instructions.

You want to remove and reinstall all present and "non present" USB devices. To do that follow the insturctions in this post:

http://forums.techguy.org/3435808-post2.html

Windows will normally reinstall these devices on reboot without any interaction from you.

However I've seen a few cases where this doesn't happen, and it may be at the root of your problems.

If you get prompted for a location to reinstall drivers from, point it to the location:

c:\windows\INF

(this is a hidden folder)

Reboot a couple of times after this completes; then remove and reinstall your Printer Software. If you get any prompts for locations to reinstall drivers from that are not satisfied by the Canon CD or other Canon driver locations, also point it to c:\windows\INF

Got an HP 970cxi printer and running Windows 2000.

We have had this printer running just fine for over a year until we had to have it (the printer) serviced. We used the computer every day for the week while the printer was gone and when we reconnected it just a few days ago, the "New Hardware Found" wizard popped up after turning the computer on. Mind you, we didn't unload or reload the driver. We just disconnected the printer for a week and reconnected it again.

We have gone through the HP Uninstall process and removed the printer and all other printers and reinstalled the driver in an effort to remedy this annoying start-up of the "New Hardware Found" wizard popping up every time the computer starts; but, nothing helps.

It prints just fine; we just want to stop the annoyance.

A:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted

Please try the steps below:

1. Uninstall all third-party burning software, such as Nero and Roxio.

2. Perform a Clean Boot to test the result.

Clean Boot

========
a. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.


Note: Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.


b. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
c. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
d. Restart the computer and test the issue.


Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment. If the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

If the issue persists, please contact your computer manufacturer to check if the DVD drive is damaged.

If not, you may need to restore the system to its factory settings.

Hope it helps.

Hi

If anyone could please shed some light on this please, it would be really helpful. I am not getting too far in my attempts to resolve this so far.

I purchased a cable which converts USB to parallel and it claims that on XP the installation is automatic as it used a built-in driver. Only problem is that it doesn't want to do that for me. Instead when I plug in the cable, the PC makes the usual "dong-ding" and it then tells me a new USB device has been detected and it opens up the wizard. It does not seem to find what it is after.

The cable does work on a friends PC without any problem, so the fault would seem to be with my hardware of software.

Hardware: Advent 4011, 2GB ram
Software: Windows XP Home, SP3 installed and auto updates are on.
More info at the bottom of the post from the TSGinfo program.

USB ports on the Advent 4011 can handle 500mA and other devices including webcam, broadband dongle etc all work ok. It is only the usb>PP cable that fails.

I have found the file it apparently should be using - usbprint.sys - and tried manually pointing the wizard at it - but I think it is wanting an .inf instead.

Any guidance would be really helpful please.

Many thanks

Cleaned some malware (lots) of a laptop, Windows XP sp3, Dell Inspiron 6000, and things were finally looking good. Then, after last reboot, all network connections depending on tcp\ip dissappeared from network connections. IPSec Service had an event in the system log about not finding the specified file.

I've searched, and can't find a fix. ipsec.sys exists and is same attributes as another functioning PC, and the registry key for the ipsec service points to the right file. But the driver just won't load, with error message "cannot locate the specified file"

Tried to roll back to sp2, thinking maybe something would get reset, but that just caused BSOD in any configuration that loaded with networking enabled (all but plain safe-mode). Got sp3 restored back.

I don't require IPSec, but the TCPIP driver has it as a dependency to start.

Hello, I was deleting some old outlook 2013 files on my G7 to clear up some space. I also deleted Ad-Aware so I could download the McAfee software I purchased. After I downloaded McAfee, the computer restarted and everything seemed fine until I tried to connect to my wireless network. I made sure that my wireless was turned on (F-12) but for some reason I can't connect to the internet. I showed my computer to a friend who works as tech support for his company. He believes I must have inadvertently deleted a network driver.  I've been doing research on how to download the driver I'm missing, but now I can't even open up the Device Manager or Recovery Manager. It could be due to the fact that my laptop is old and slow. Either way, I'm trying to figure out which problem needs to be fixed first, or at all.

Hello all.

I have been trying for many weeks now to get the Corega WCLB-11 card bus which came with my laptop IBM ThinkPad A22m. It was imported for the USA to the UK.

When I first received the laptop it had Win2000 pro but this was not a fully legal copy so since I had a copy of Win XP Home Edition lying around, I stuck it on it also with a dual boot with Mandrake Linux. However, I use the XP partition more for my learning needs so I have also installed 512Mb of RAM and everything is working fine.

The Corega WCLB worked great with Win 2000 pro however; I did need to use another programme to bridge the connection which was a Motive based programme which was part of ASDL kit. Since the major upgrade, I have failed at every attempt to install the card. I have tried all of the following:

1. Disabling the current Intel network driver whilst trying to install a new Realtek 8180 universal driver.
2. I have downloaded all the drivers and firmware off the Corega Home page but can not get the Add Hardware wizard to recognise the drivers or software.
3. Tried to change the IRQ of all the devices manually through the bios which worked but I could still not load the driver,

Greetings & a happy new year

My issue ...[as per thread heading].

The strange thing is when I'm on other networks i.e. at the in-laws house etc. youtube loads and plays just fine, so I'm assuming it's not my laptop/software/browser etc.

To my untrained eye/brain (not a tech geek) it seems as there is a problem between my home network and my lappy (laptop connected via wifi or ethernet cable).

As stated if I'm at the in-laws it (youtube) works just fine.

Also my desktop (on my home network) can access youtube w/o any problems.

I'm really flumixed as to why this is happening.

Other sites that play :cough: :cough: movies work just fine, it's just youtube for some reason & only on my lappy when connected to my home network.

According to my AV (Kapersky) the lappy is free from virus.

Please advise.

PS - It hasn't always been this way, but I've put up with it for so long - I can't actually remember when it first started happening.

Okay so, my laptop's system is unable to boot, so I just tried to format it since I have to do that for a very long time, and when it asked me in which partition I want to install windows there was nothing, although when I clicked "Load Driver" I could access the hard disk's files, the hard disk IS listed in the bios normally but windows does not recognize it, I tried using Kaspersky Rescue disk(the only CD I had along with the recovery disk)and when I used the File Manager, the hard disk still didn't show, are there any drivers I have to install?I have burned both fujitsu
9that's my laptop) and Seagate's websites and can't find anything, I have searched forums but the only answers were
"check if your hd is listen in bios".So, it IS listed in bios but I can't reinstall windows nor access it, any suggestions?

A:No drivers found. click load driver to provide a mass storage driver f

Nevermind, I sent my laptop to a technician and he told me I burnt the hard drive by destroying some cables while cleaning with compressed air.

I have a problem with my ThinkCentre E72 (Windows 8). Suddenly, it shuts down with "shut-down" screen. Later, in my Event Viewer, I found the following System Warning:"The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ROOT\SYSTEM\0001" where the source of problem is Kernel-PnP. Only thing that is plugged in my computer is mouse, keyboard and monitor. Many thanks,Matija

In case anyone else is affected by this, please have a look at my post in Kernel-pnp (PLEASE HELP). Best regards // ThinkErEr

Hi there!
I'm in a desperate need of help.
This is the situation (sorry for my bad English as always...).
Yesterday I left my PC running with a download in progress through MiPony.I told the program MiPony (for the first time) to shut down the PC at the end of the download.Until then the PC had no problem.Before going to bed I checked the PC and I saw that it was offThis morning I turned on the PC and I glimpsed a sign that it was starting a scan (the only letter I saw was I:\) but I could not stop it.The PC is turned on regularly. Only half an hour later I found out that an entire 3TB HDD in 4 partitions had disappearedI did some search and found this error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ROOT\PARAGONBLOCKDEVICE\0000.I tried to reboot but same situation (no scan and normal situation) but NO drive.I checked the event log (attached) and I see the problem started after 4 different event regarding my network connection (It's a week that I have to reset the modem \ router several times a day)

Is your drive listed in BIOS? It could be a hard drive failure. No drivers should be needed for Windows 7.

I don't see XP listed as an OS for it. What OS came pre-installed?

Is the copy of Vista a full retail copy? If so, back up any files you need and wipe the HDD with KillDisk. Then try Vista installation again.

Hi there

Some problems I had and that also BSOD alot was that the hard disc compability mode was set wrongly, if so you would not see the discs.

Check in bios for somwthing like "AHCI" mode and "Compability" mode.

Put it to compability as otherwise special drivers are neededm ones added you can swap this back to get more speed.

I was looking at my system logs today and found an error that is being repeated quite a lot and I would like to get rid of the darned error.

The error in the applications event loge is TrueVector Service, event 5003. The message in the event says:

TrueVector driver: Driver install or load failure: LoadNTDeviceDriver. Win32 error: The system cannot find the file specified.

I checked on the Internet and have found numerous resources indicating that TrueVector is a part of zone alarm. The weird part is that I have never had zone alarm or any other firewall installed -- Note even Microsft's within XP SP2. I have no references to Zone Alarm in my registry. My references to TrueVetor are in My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Eventlog\Application\TrueVector Service

Can someone suggest any soluton to getting rid of this event?

Hi,

Since the 11/18/2012 event viewer (Event ID 219, Task Category 212) has been posting a warning:

The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN (followed by name of USB device)

It only occurs on start up if I have a USB memory device plugged into a USB port. The USB memory device functions perfectly and the error never occurs when I plug in and out a memory device after boot up.

The error only occurs for memory devices like memory sticks, external USB hard drive does not cause this error.

Checking back to around the 11/18/2012 I see nothing that I have changed/installed that might indicate something that has caused this. No other Windows 7 failures or issues.

Booting a second hard drive with windows 7 on the same system (I have this second installation for testing faults etc), the issue does NOT occur.

From checking forums and searching I have found a few others with this issue and a few articles on its cause

WUDFRd failed to load for the device

Event ID 219 is logged after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

I was just curious as to why it would suddenly start occurring after a particular date when as far as I can tell I have not made any changes to anything around this date.

Also I wondered if there was a fix to stop this, other than removing a memory stick before boot up!

Any thoughts?

A:The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error

I just started getting this exact same error message logged in Event Viewer when I plug a USB stick into a USB port. It happens with two different sticks from two different manufactures, but it does not happen every time I plug them in. It seems that it may mostly happen the first time I plug a stick in after I have booted up my PC.

Have you been able to find a solution to get these error codes to stop logging?

This has been a problem for over a year now. 140+ identical PCs running identical images, with identical keyboards. Some have the problem, some do not, and it's incredibly unpredictable.

PCs are HP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF running Windows 7 x64 Professional.

Re-imaging the PC has no effect but that same image running on another PC with the same hardware can run without ever experiencing the problem. The system I use has not experienced the problem once in over a year.

I have rebuilt the image from scratch and pushed it out to a group of people experiencing the error. It seemed to resolve it for a few months and then the errors inexplicably came back.

I have this computer what for some reasons wont install USB Smartcard readers.
Its Win7 64.
I have tried different smartcards but they wont help, also i tried to install drives manually but still wont work. I uninstalled and installed drivers many times.

Also i tried, but didnt work:
Change the 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-Mode Driver Framework' from 'Manual' to 'Automatic'.

Also the error from events.

At Windows 10 startup this Warning appears in my Event Log as Event ID: 219.

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{a1c931b2-3b00-11e5-9c14-806e6f6e6963}#0000000008100000.

I know why this happens. The device in the message is an internal SATA AHCI hard drive. All AHCI drives, even internal ones, are considered removal or hot swapable. It even causes the safely remove icon to appear sort of like it was a USB drive. It happened on Windows 8.x. Don't remember if it happened on Windows 7. I can't make any changes in my BIOS to make it not hot swapable as there is no option for this drive.

The fix to get rid of the message in W8 was to modify the Service 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework' Changing the Startup type from Manual to Automatic fixed the problem. However, on Windows 10 this method does not work.

I can't disable the Service as it's needed for other devices. Just wondering if anyone found a nice clean way to get rid of the warning message like in W8?

A:The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device .......

I have the same issue. I have upgraded from Win 7 home, had some issues so I did a clean install of Win 10 home, and I also tried changing the Windows Driver Foundation - User Mode Driver Framework from manual to auto and same as you it did not work. And, Yes, I have downloaded and installed all of the latest driver/firmware from my manufacturer for all my hardware but still have this issue.

*** Problem has reappeared, so this is NOT a solution ****
It worked for 5 reboots, so strange it reappeared

Been searching for days to find a solution for this problem (including fresh installs of Windows 10 etc), and today accidentally found it ... for my Asus Maximus V111 Formula at least, but it may also work on other motherboards

In BIOS, ensure that the XHCI Hand-Off is set to ENABLED (default is disabled)

I changed this, and now I can boot the system with USB devices inserted, and not get any Kernal-PnP warnings

Hope this helps somebody else

Apparently, I am one of many who seem to be having this issue. And just like everybody else, I turned to Google for some answers. Here is my scenario (perhaps gregrocker could point me in the right direction?):

I am running on a laptop with the following specs:

Dell Studio 1735
32-bit Vista Home Premium, SP1
Intel 2 Core Duo, T8100 @ 2.10 GHz
250 GB SATA HDD, 5400 RPM
4 GBs of RAM
256 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
8x Slot Load CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

I downloaded the .iso image of Windows 7 through the software program at Penn State and burned it to a DVD. When I restart my computer and boot off of the DVD drive, I get the Windows 7 Installation interface. As the setup begins, I get an error message that says "Load Driver" across the top of the window, and says "A required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is missing". I tried a few things to circumvent this issue:

1. I swapped out the installation CD with one of the CD's that came with my laptop that contains all of my device drivers. It found one compatible driver for the ATA/ATAPI Controller, and despite selecting it and hitting next, it didn't work.

2. I took the service tag from my laptop, downloaded each and every driver that it's associated with, burned it to an .iso, and swapped THAT out when I tried to install. Again, nothing happened.

3. I mounted the .iso onto an 8GB Cruzer and made a bootable flash drive. Upon trying the install again, I had the same problem.

4. I tried to bu... Read more

Try extracting the ISO to Vista desktop to run Setup from there.

You can locate the driver in Vista's Device Manager SATA controller Driver info tab.

The fact that it would duplicate the error for USB flash install sounds like a malfunction.

Try removing 2 gb of RAM.

Check BIOS version to see if you have the latest.

Checksum the HASH of the ISO you downloaded to confirm it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/0...vd-iso-images/

My PC sometimes takes ages to boot, like it's looking for a missing driver - then it eventually times out and boots windows. I go to the control panel list of hardware and there is a little exclamation mark next to a "Multimedia Audio Controller". I produce music and there's three pieces of kit that may need one

Now, all my multimedia audio controllers' drivers have loaded:

My Soundcard
Midi interface

The only one that doesn't show up on the hardware list is a midi controller / fader box thing. But it works absolutely fine, it is recognised in the USB Unplug / Eject hardware thing in the systray and I've pointed to its driver when trying to update the one that Windows says is missing. So I'm certain it's not for the midi controller.

If I don't know what piece of kit the driver is missing for, how can I update it? Windows searches for one and hasn't got it, and it doesn't give me a clue as to what it is. I disable it but every time I boot it says "Found new hardware" and it looks for a driver.

I have re-installed soundcard drivers with latest version and still no luck.

One theory I have: my motherboard comes with onboard sound could the computer be trying to load this or something???
