I was trying to update my drivers, I went to dell website and got a few update for my drivers, but now, my computer won't go into standby or hibernate. If I try to go into standby, after I see the "preparing to standby" my computer goes black and the on light still on, then I can't wake the system up I have to press and hold the power button and reestart. When I try to go into hibernate mode after "preparing to hibernate" I see a blue screen with that says something like "an error has happened and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to my system, the problem could be caused by a new software or driver... etc" After I restart it says, your system has recovered from a serious problem and then it ask me to send a report error, I do and then my web browser and open this: [url]I know the problem was a driver that I was trying to update to make my computer work better but instead it messed up. How do I undo the updated drivers?
I have an HP Pavilion dv7. 4gig ram and an Radeon HD 3200 yes not the best video card in the world but with my laptop I can play games like Stalker, oblivion and the witcher at high settings.
Now my drivers are all out of date but when ever I go to the radeon sites to find a download for an updated video drivers all these different sites just have me download tihs application that find all outdated drivers for you. However in order to have them download the new drivers you have to pay them for the program.
I can not figure out how to get the latest drivers for my laptop.
My sister has a sony VGN-FZ190, and we just put in a new hard drive...problem is, i need to update the drivers, and i cant figure out what she needs, and what she doesnt. the support site is terrible in contrast to dells site (for my dell E6400), so i am kind of lost.
She definitely needs a GPU firmware update (1.0 in windows experience), but i have no idea what to get...nvidias website wont tell me what to download since its a laptop GPU. Are there any other important firmware updates or anything to install, or anything else i should know about this before i mess around with it? Do sony laptops use Intel matrix storage manager? I know that was an important update for mine.
Today I updated two Lenovo drivers (ACPI and Sound). After the installation I was asked to restart my Laptop. The restart did not finish and the system showed the bluescreen for a short time and the it restarted with the system recovery. All attempts to repair the system with Windows recovery were not successfull. I am still not able to start my Laptop.
My system is: Lenovo Thinkpad T530 (2429DT7) Windows 7 (64Bit)
Update: NVIDIA released 197.44 drivers for notebooks(with OpenGL 4 support for Fermi GPU), GT300M only gets support up to 3.3
I used the same inf file(changing drivers' version and date, of course) and everything is working as expected. Just follow the same instructions if you wanna try. - 197.44 inf file and instructions: Midtown's 197.44 Instructions.zip (Mirrors: Megaupload, Hotfile) - NVIDIA's original drivers: Download for Windows 7(64-bit)
So I managed to install the new NVIDIA drivers for laptops, 197.16 on my VAIO F after modifying the inf file myself for a few hours. I'm no expert, but I guess it worked out fine.
Here's the link for inf file & instructions: Midtown's 197.16 Instructions.zip
Disclaimer: I'm not responsible for any hardware/software failure.
After testing the new drivers for 24hrs: - No flicker at low brightness - No uneven brightness after pressing the "Display Off" button - Fan not constantly running - "Normal" temperature compared to Sony's "certified" graphic drivers - No problems after sleep/restart........................
I tried to update some drivers on my laptop and now the network controller is missing on the laptop and I don't have Wi-Fi on it, have to plug in network cable to be able to access the internet. try to get windows to locate it online but cant find it.
I have a HP 6t-1200 CTO Ultrabook with the Radeon HD 8750M and Intel 4000 switchable graphics.
Problem: When I am operating with Windows 8 they function normally, but upon updating to Windows 8.1 the AMD drivers fail to be able to initiate and D3D.
1. Most current driver is dated 2013-01-14 2. Generic drivers do not recognize the hardware 3. Drivers for other HD 8xxx series based HP laptops do not resolve the problem
Current workaround: Open the Catalyst Control Center and go to switchable graphics application settings under the power tab. Switch anything that uses DirectX to run in power saving mode, this will run those applications using the intel 4000 graphics which has a more current driver that works with Windows 8.1.
Solution: For now I believe that the only solution is to wait for HP and Microsoft to work together on creating a newer driver. Once that newer driver is released it should resolve the problem. The other solution is to permanently stick to Windows 8 and not update to Windows 8.1. This is a bit more difficult though since Microsoft pushes 8.1 very aggressively. There might be a way to make the notifications and automatic attempts to update stop, but I have not looked into that solution.
I have a SONY VIAO VGN-SZ433N_B. I'm constantly reminded that there are new updates for my lap top, but when I try to install I am told 'VAIO Update 4.0 is required. VAIO Update (Ver. 4.0 and above) is required on your VAIO Notebook.'
So I installed Sony Update 4.0.0.08240 but still it isnt recognised. I have even tried to uninstall the previous Update module and then re install without success. I keep getting the same message, indicating that the Viao Update 4 I have isnt being recognised.
I have an XPS 17 L702X. I just did a re-install of windows 7 on my wife's laptop. How do I use the drivers and utilities disc to get the drivers for the hardware on this computer? I can't get online on it. I do have the discs.
I own a Dell 7520 and it has four 3.0 usb ports. However, I have discovered that one program I use does not support Intel 3.0 USB ports only USB 2.0 ports. So the only port that program will use is the Realtek USB card reader on the 7520 because that is a native 2.0 port.
According to a poster Innogen on the Intel support forum "The BIOS in my Dell Inspiron 7520 allows me to disable it so that the USB 3.0 ports revert to USB 2.0 functionality." but I can't find any such functionality in my BIOS (using version A06).
I tried uninstalling the Intel USB 3.0 drivers in WIn 7 Ultimate hoping that when I rebooted it would install USB 2.0 drivers but it simply reinstalled the USB 3.0 drivers.
I would really like to get this program working on my computer and while I am not happy about losing USB 3.0 functionality I can live with it until the vendor gets its act together and starts to support Intel USB 3.0.
As far as I can see it the only option with the possibility of docking and decent graphics performance are the m90/m6300 (regardless of manufacture). Has anyone heard news of a 8800 equivalent card for the m6300? I am duo to replace my m90 and believe the docking to be very convenient. Why doesn't the 5793 or m15x come with a docking option!
i have tried updating my computer (vista OS) with the latest updates (for security update). i tried twice (which had me restart, and i did), and both times they failed. why is this? this has happened before.
