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 was having some freezing/BSOD problem with a certain very important program and I ended up reinstalling windows. I did so from a USB flashdisk but after windows was installed a lot of drivers seem to be missing. The laptop is a custom build and I don't have the cd with all the drivers since the disk is still at home, which is across the Atlantic Ocean so getting that isn't an option either.

The most important driver that seems to be missing as far as I can tell at the moment is the network adapter driver. Device Manager isn't recognizing the following devices:
- Ethernet Controller
- Network Controller
- PCI Device
- SM Bus Controller
- USB Controller

Windows Update isn't finding any drivers for those devices and I can't download them manually either since I don't know what I need to be looking for.

Any help is greatly appreciated since I've already been 2 days out of commission with the previous BSOD problem before I reinstalled windows. Let me know if you need me to supply any other information.

Thank You.


I saw in another thread it was asked to upload a dxdiag file so I attached that.

check out this newly found tool i stumbled upon at work the other day. the OEM MSI KT6V motherboard driver cd. this driver cd scans your device manager and automatically picks the compatible drivers that are availible on the cd for you to install. it's really amazing how many computers i've used this cd on... it has intel, VIA, SiS among other things and a bunch drivers for onboard sound/lan etc. it really is a must have for the tech that works on windows machines all the time. this driver cd has been used on almost every kind of OEM motherboard (dell, compaq, hp, w/e) and almost every socket processor from socket A to 939 on the AMD side and 370 to 775 on the intel side.

it might be hard to find this disc, but it's a great tool to have. i've only got a couple of copied KT6V discs and i use all of them all the time at work. (we do about 100 machines a week.)

Alright, so I just installed Windows 7 on a seperate partition, and now I have two OS running on a hard-drive. I installed all drivers, but I can't get wifi running on it. I tried using device manager from windows 8 to find the driver required for wifi. After a few trial and error by installing drivers (mainly installing realtek and intel chipset) it still didn't work. How can I get wifi working on windows 7 on this laptop? Currently connected to the internet via a Ethernet, but that won't be the case in the future. Really need wifi for windows 7 to be complete.

Download the "[EXE] DIAMOND STEALTH II WIN9X DRIVER" driver and run it. The chances are it may not work; however you may be able to use the browse function from the device manager to search the directory the .exe creates. Doing it manually that way may work.

I wanted a clean slate for my computer so I reinstalled Windows 7 (not upgrade, i used custom)with just the disc. It's a custom built PC that my friend generously gave to me so I didn't have any manufacturers disc to work with. Anyway, it's always had an Internet connection through a wired connection, and after it finished booting it wouldn't let me connect to the net even with the ethernet cord plugged in. I quickly realized something must have happened to the driver in the process of reinstalling, and now I need to find the drivers to install them onto my computer again but I have no clue where to find them.

I've already tried uninstalling the drivers, and then scanning for hardware changes to get them to reinstall but it did not work. It still says there are issues. I also can't use Windows Update since well, I can't connect to the net. When I go to Devices and Printers, I see a ! By my comp name. I try to troubleshoot but it says my Universal Serial Bus Controller doesn't have a driver, and my Ethernet Controller doesn't have a driver. Here is a text file (Try to find "Problem Devices" in the text file that may help on the text file) I've attached with my system info let me know if you guys need any more info, I'd really appreciate any help on what drivers to get and/or how to fix this issue.

Please fill up your System Specs to the extent you can for more meaningful help. That said the information that you have furnished says "Ethernet Controller OK". Therefore Ethernet Controller is there. Kindly open the Device Manager and check the status of the Ethernet Controller and if properly installed then name of the Network Adapter that is installed.

I have a couple old linksys Ether16 Lan Card with an RJ 45 connection and a coax connection. When I try to install it in win98 it finds it as a nec2000 adapter, and says it is for Novell. If I set it to a static IP I cannot ping it nor ping any of the other computers on my network from it. I have tried it in them in multiple computers, I found one driver that I thought was for it but when I tried to install it it said it was not for this type of hardware. These nics were from old computers at my work and they worked fine there with the NT server. Are these just incompatiable with what I want to do, or am I just missing the correct driver?

Go into Device Manager and check if you have UNKNOWN devices. Also check for devices with red or yellow marks. For each device that you see with red or yellow and those under UNKNOWN, get their Device Instance ID of each device.

Any chance we could get a sticky added to this forum recommending people first Google the exact model # of their computer before starting a new thread for a missing driver? 9 times out of ten, the first page of results has a link to the manufacturers' site with the driver they're looking for. It only takes a bit of common sense. If you have an hp, go to the link that has hp.com in it... and so on. Most of the time, drivers for vista will work in windows 7, and in almost every case, you don't even have to specify whether you have 32 or 64 bit windows because the download usually contains drivers for both.

A:finding drivers....

I see your point. But many times people don't realize they need a 32-bit or 64-bit driver, that their hardware is no longer supported for Win 7, that it might not be located at the mfg, but you can track it by the (let's say) chip mfg, etc. Google for a driver and you might not be directed to the mfg, and perhaps to a disreputable site. I think it's a good idea but don't know if it will have utility in the long run.

I have a 2002 MSI Motherboard. I recently re-formatted and installed xp. I have 6 unknown devices. This is a 845e max intel motherboard. I put in my information with intel downlaoded the drivers and still the yellow question marks are still there. I downloaded a unknown device identifier and it says memory controller 82845e I/O 82801DB (ICH4). I know it's a chipset driver. I even bought a subscription to Driver agent. It scanned my pc and said I needed Intel chipset I think it was 7.22 so I installed and the yellow question marks are all still there. Then on MSI website said when you install chipset drivers you need to do it thru the command line. So I followed those directions and still nothing. I tried plugging a USB device in back and one of those yellow question marks was that usb port. The device didn't work. Anybody have any ideas?

Since reinstalling Windows I've been having some networking issues with one of my systems right now and there's a good chance that they are related to the drivers I'm using for my wireless card.

The last time I installed Vista on this computer the default drivers weren't good ones at all and I had to get new ones. Problem is, I can't find out where to get them now.

I know that my wireless card is a Broadcom BCM94318E, but it's been impossible to find driers for it at Broadcom's website. The drivers I currently use are dated as from 2006. What's the most trustworthy software I could use to figure out which drivers my wireless network card needs?

For your network controller go here. Click on the hard drive icon, not the green download button. Provide a junk email address. I am not sure this driver will work but it does have the same vendor and device ID according to driveridentifier which I have used before.  This is a Realtek 8821AE AC chipset and is not available on Realtek's site for some reason.
If this gives you internet then go here and download intel's utility to get your other drivers. The other drivers are intel as the Vendor ID is 8086.

Hi, I am wondering if there is such a program to scan my computer and determine what driver I need for my onboard video from an old computer. There is no documentation and I do not know what MB it is. Win98 has been reinstalled on it and I need the video driver.

Please Help,

Look at the MB and find a model/make, it's there somewhere for 99% of the MB's around. You might also try one of these programs and see if it'll tell you anything:

I got myself in a heap of trouble trying to add a duplexer , Q5582A, to my Photosmart D7260 Printer.
The Error:
"'Automatic Two-Sided Printing Module Missing' Message Displays on the Computer when Duplexing"
I tried the recommended update: Download 1.0,16.12M here:
'Automatic Two-Sided Printing Module Missing' Message Displays on the Computer when Duplexing HP Photosmart D7260 Printer | HP? Support
It didn't help
HP support told me to un-install and re-install the drivers which I did.
Now, Secunia reports the drivers as down level. When I try to update HP says the update for this printer is no longer supported.
My restore to a prior restore point failed.
The Device manager does not have driver files for this device to rollback. This may be because it is network connected.
I see a HP update in my C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\HP Software Update\hpwuSchd2.exe
It is dated Sunday, ?October ?14, ?2007, ??9:17:32 PM. Accessed Sunday, ?October ?12, ?2008, ??11:04:27 AM

One course of action for me is to ignore Secunia. The printer seems to be working as it did before I started this project.
But, it would be nice to have the drivers back to where they were.
Could I run hpwuSchd2.exe to get my drivers back to where they were before I started on this fools errand?
Or, could you help me identify the driver files and I could restore them from a backup?

A:Help Finding Printer Drivers


Your "Update software" is identifying the latest drivers but they are not compatible for your system. (Windows 7 or even 8).

This is a common issue & is down to inferior software.
