Dell :: Unknown Device :: Base System In Device Manager?
I got my new laptop today, and got rid of the installed Dell Crap and installed my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

Now under my Device Manager I've got two issues:

Base System
Base System

I contacted Dell, they said they won't support my laptop since I don't have their operating system on it. All I want to know is what drivers I need. I can't believe they couldn't let me know.

Dell :: Unknown Device On 1537 After Clean Install
I just finished doing a clean install of Vista SP1 on my new Studio 1537. Everything has gone well, however when I checked Device Manager I have one device with an exclamation mark next to it. When I clicked on the unknown device properties it tells me that it is "Intel(R) ICH9M LPC Interface Controller - 2919" I've looked all over Dell's Driver and Download site and I can't find the driver for this device nor do I know what category I should look under. When I contacted Dell's support they wanted me to unistall the device and overwrite my current BIOS version, A07, with an older version, A05. I decided that wasn't the best way so I thought I'd ask here hoping someone could help. After my install I loaded the drivers in the following order per Dell's directions: Notebook System Software, Chipset, Audio, Video, NIC Card, Dell Quickset, Wireless NIC, Touchpad. I didn't download and install the SATA drivers from Dell's website because my drive model isn't one of the ones listed for use with the driver. My drive is listed as a ST9320320AS. I'd appreciate any help someone can offer.

Acer :: Crystal Eye Webcam/Unknown Device - 5739g
I basically used my webcam every night with Skype to talk to my friends. The very next day, it stops working. Ive literally tried everything. In the device manager, I have an "Unknown Device" listed as a USB. Im 100% sure this use to be my Camera.

I just used the Acer factory CDs to reinstall my OS + Drivers. All the drivers were successfully installed with the exception of the Camera Drivers (because the computer doesnt see a camera)

I tried to download the drivers from the Acer website but (both Chicony and Suyin) and everytime I try to install them a error comes up that says "Camera not found!" I have a laptop so I have no clue how its not finding it.

ive been working on this for hours now and its really getting frustrating. Here are the things ive tried, and if someone knows a solution or a different method I havent tried to fix it, PLEASE let me know

My methods:

1. Reformatted computer using Acer recovery discs
2. Downloaded and tried to install drivers from acer website (camera not found problem)
3. Put windows in Safe mode, uninstalled unknown device, restarted computer to let it automatically scan/update (still failed)
4. Deleted all pictures from My Pictures
5. Tried using Windows Vista drivers and setting to Vista Compatibility mode (I have windows 7), no avail
6. Uninstalled and reinstalled Unknown Device (aka camera) driver, didnt work
7. Tried the windows update software option, windows said everything was fine (pshhh).
8. Uninstalled unknown device, used the option "scan for hardware changes" still didnt work
9. Installed skype to see if the webcam would be recognized, which it wasnt.

HP/Compaq :: DV2 Win 7 "Unknown Device"
Installed the new Win7 RC 64bit on my DV2-1030us last night. Was really fast and easy and everything seems to be working great... but in Device Manager, there is an "Unknown Device" with a yellow exclamation mark next to it.

Upon closer inspection it says that it's location is, "on ATi PCI Express (3GIO) Filter Driver". I have no idea what this is. My internet searches have taught little about what this actually is. I have found a few HP dirver downloads for this, but when trying to install them, it just says my system doesn't meet the requirements.

It doesn't seem to be affecting the performance of my system at all and it's not that big of a deal. I just don't like having yellow exclamations in my device manager.

Dell :: Video Controller And Video Controller (VGA Compatible) Not Working
But this to "video controller" and "video controller (VGA compatible)" still can't find the way to fix them, I went to dell's drivers download page and the drivers don't fix the problem!!!

I've been told that I need my video controller working so I can put my computer into standby or hibernate, since that option is not working on my computer.

My computer works fine but I really would like to fix this two issues!!!

Ethernet Controller is another device that is not working, but I'm not too worried about it since I can connect to the internet using my wireless card

HP/Compaq :: DV9000 104-unsupported Wireless Network Device Detected. System Halted. Remove Device And Restart
I have the DV9000 series Laptop. It is the DV9235NR model (but not the DV9200 series...shows DV9000 on the bottom).

Anyways...I decided to try to upgrade the interal wireless G with a wireless N card that is from HP. It has the HP part number and everything. When I put the card in, this error comes up. I read that the bios doesn't recongnize the card. I took the card out, booted up to Windows with my old wireless card, put the computer in sleep mode, took out the old card and put the new card in. Works perfect. I know the card it good.

How can I make the new card work without having to do this? I heard about a bios hack. How is this done? Could I modify the Wifi card also? I did update to the newest bios on my laptop (dated 2008) and that didn't work. How about a bios from another series laptop?

Sony :: Is It Worthy To Upgrade 4200rpm HDD To Faster HDD With PATA Interface
my 13.3" VGN-SZ650N/C so far but I also want to get a used TZ series 11" Vaio Laptop but most of the models are only using slower 1.8 " 4200rpm drive.

Assume if I got a decent issue of a used TZ from eBay, is it worthy to spend extra $$ to upgrade those 1.8 " 4200 rpm drive to something faster ?

HP/Compaq :: HP Nc2400general- Overclocking, Optical Drive > HDD Caddy Interface
i just got an nc2400, seems to be a pretty great machine maybe greater with some optimizations

-overclocking. it seems very quiet and cool, has anyone overclocked with success?

-hdd in optical bay caddy, i want to know more about this. mainly, is the optical drive SATA, or would it basically be the same PATA interface as the old HDD?

im thinking the best thing for this laptop is either a PCMCIA SSD or PCMCIA to SATA for an at least normal hard drive speed.

unless mini pcie is the way to go? if anyone else has tried and succeeded at addressing the problem of slow hdd interface, id like to know your experience. i tried the intel 5100 mini card in the slot, said incompatible wifi device remove and restart at the bios. i guess this could be a general thing, with chipsets or something.

Acer :: ASpire 5672 WLMI Died Cause: Unknown
Right down to the matter at hand. Yesterday I was working on my laptop, plugged in, but charging, about 40%, when all of a sudden it shuts down. I wasnt doing anything overly stressful, CPU's were each at about 50% load tops (Ubuntu 8.10, mysql, apache2, rythmbox, firefox, opera, some file browsers, pidgin).

My initial thought was that the power supply adapter had gone - thus it was draining whilst i worked and i hadnt noticed (since the connector is a little worn). I noticed that the little green light was blinking rapidly on it. However when I unplugged it from the laptop, it returned to its static green state.

I went to remove the HDD today as i had to get my work from it, so I thought I would try to start it up anyway. Nothing. Whilst removing the HDD i noticed an occasional clicking (3 little consecutive clicks to be precise, as if it were trying to start but just couldnt. This happened a few times, until I removed the battery, then it stopped. I can replicate this by turning it on and it will keep happening until I remove the battery.

Also I have gone inside, attempted to clean any dust off and cleaned the battery contacts, so it is unlikely to be anything like that.

I know its an old laptop these days and sometimes these things die, but this thing has been my baby. I learnt to code on this thing, I learnt Linux on this thing and I'm not giving it up without a fight.

Acer :: Aspire 5600 Series, Unknown Motherboard Component
I'm looking at the motherboard on my Aspire 5601AWLMi (mobo id "31zb2mb0091" ) and I see there's four places where can insert cards. Two are the RAM chips, those are labeled DDR RVS 1.8V with "tyco" written on the other side of the plastic bracket, there's wireless card slot not really labeled with anything conclusive over near the Lan and Phone port, and then there's another slot labeled "0624n3" on the left side of the plastic bracket and "-+AMP" on the other side of it. I have absolutely NO idea what that last slot is for, and I'd like to know, if anyone can figure it out.

To describe it, pin wise starting from the left it has 1 pin, a divider, then 61 pins in a row. I think it's 61. I'm not willing to recount :P
It's physically shorter than a ram chip, but not by much more than 3/4cm is my guess.

You can see the slot itself in this picture:
The slot is sitting just above that big red..knob..thing.

Also, I found this page, but it didn't tell me anything useful, I think. The mobo is flipped over in the diagrams..

Dell :: SXPS 1340 SM Bus Controller
In the process of trying different nVidia GPU drivers I inadvertently uninstalled a bunch of other nVidia drivers from my SXPS 1340 . Managed to reinstall most of them, but I keep on getting an error looking for drivers for the SM Bus controller. Now all the advice on t'internet is that this is part of the chipset drivers, which I have reinstalled a number of times- all the other devices are fine now, but the SM Bus controller is still flagged up in the device manager.

Dell :: Studio Fan Speed Controller..?
So does anyone know of one that actually works? I have tried i8kfangui, but it no longer works with Windows Vista 64 bit, due to the unsigned drivers issue.

I disabled the signed drivers thing by booting while pressing F8.. and it installed perfectly and worked until I restarted Windows normally..

Then it said fanio driver not found or something, and refused to work unless I boot by pressing F8..

So anyone have a solution? Speedfan doesn't seem to work either.. I want to set the fans not to kick in so load until a certain temp .....

Dell :: Modifying Fan Controller For E6400/E6500
The fan on my E6400 runs most of the time at about 3000 rpm, I would like it to run at about 1500 rpm instead, I think 3000 rpm is quite noisy, even though it's stated as "slow"...

It works great and I'm able to controll the fan-speed (and noise!) manually..

I'm wondering if it would be possible to modify this fan controller for the E6400 and other laptops as well?..

The Zalman Fan Mate 2 has an input of 12V and can via the knob output between 5-11V, hence the fan will run slower if it is conncected to the Zalman controller. The problem so far is that the Zalman Fan Mate 2 is built for desktops with bigger power-pins, the one in the E6400 is quite small. Secondly I'm not sure about the voltage of the built in Dell-fan.

Anyway, if someone figure out how to modify a hardware fan controller for the Dell Latitude series, I think these controllers could sell like hot cakes...

HP/Compaq :: "network Store Interface Service Has Stopped Working" / HD Space

and on an unrelated note, i'm wondering if i can't get more room out of my HD. my model is advertised at 320, but only shows 286 available. i know it's always less than whats advertised but that seems like more than usual. i also have used up about 250 in files and programes yet only have 13.6gb left. i've turned off restore point, could there be anything else bogging down my HD that i can't see? also is there a way to clear out the recovery drive and add on the free space to my c drive?

I have a strange problem on my Acer 7720G notebook (PM965 chipset).

The internal Broadcom 5787 is not detected. When I put a cable in the LAN port, no Leds are lit.

Strange enough, the UUID in the Bios has a value, which means that the Bios recognizes a LAN device.

Is there a keyboard combination that shuts down the internal LAN controller?

Acer :: 5930G SM Bus Controller Driver
i recently installed WinXP on my Acer 5930G (went from vista). i managed to find all the drivers (including the ICH9M SATA ACHI-mode driver) except one called the SM Bus Controller which is showing up in device manager with a little yellow ! symbol. Does anyone know where I can find this driver? the Intel website and their chipset identifier tool seems to be quite useless. The chipset identifier can't identify anything except the I/O controller (82801MB ICH9M SATA AHCI-mode) which was installed from the '32-bit floppy configuration files'

5930G Specs:
C2D P7350
Geforce 9600M GT
Intel 965 Express (i think)

does anyone know which SM Bus Controller driver i need for XP?

But if I look benchmark from other users (they don't use Dell though), the graph is different. Here is what I have:

The only thing Im missing to downgrade vista to xp is the sata controller I cant find it anywhere for the Extensa 4630Z.

I checked intel's site for sata controller drivers they arent there.

When tried slipstream drivers I found filename called " iaahci.inf " I used nlite to intergrate them on cd im still getting a blue screen so they arent compatible.

Acer :: Replacing Ricoh 1394 Controller Chipset With TI
my Acer 7720-6604 and audio. It's got the dreaded Realtek HD audio chip in it, and no matter what I do (I've tried Windows XP, Vista 32/64) and no matter what order I install the drivers in (audio first, chipset first, etc.) I get terrible audio performance. I constantly get pops and clicks, stuttering and time stretching while playing any audio from CD, mp3, or video Xvid / Divx. I've tried all the different codec packs to no avail.

So I decided I would just scrap attempting to use the Realtek and buy an external audio card (since I do a lot of audio recording anyway) and bought myself a Presonus Firebox.

So now you probably know where this is going... Yes, I discovered (after RMA-ing my Presonus for an Edirol FA-101) that my Acer contains within it another terribly flawed piece of hardware: the Ricoh chipset that controls my Firewire and card reader. Woah is me... According to just about every pro audio soundcard manufacturer the Texas Instruments chipset is the bee's knees and the Ricoh should be avoided like the plague.

So let me ask you all this: I've seen a lot of ingenious people here modify their laptops to include faster processors, new video cards, etc. Is it also possible to replace this Ricoh chipset with a TI IEEE 1394 controller?
