just yesterday i started having a bit of trouble with my screen. when I open it to a full position so it is at optimum tilt for viewing, the colors become slightly washed out and whites gain a blueish tinge, while blacks have this sort of red static/noise behind them. However, when i tilt the screen to a very acute angle, the colors return to normal. I think it might be a connection that got a little loosened- i dropped my laptop onto a car floor a few days ago while on a trip.
I recently upgraded my wife's laptop from Vista Home Premium to Windows 7 Ultimate and almost everything works fine on it. The one sticking point through has been the battery behaving oddly in Win7. The first thing is that the battery icon has a red X on it and when you hover over it it states that I should consider replacing my battery. When the laptop runs unplugged, it literally lasts 20 minutes before it powers itself off. This is a huge difference when it would last over 2 hours in Vista just before the upgrade.
I'm wondering if there are specific drivers I should install or downgrade even though everything in Device Manager no longer has any yellow exclamation marks (I had to install some drivers after installing Win7). FYI, this laptop is about 1.5 years old.
If I can't find a solution to the low battery performance, I may have to revert her laptop back to Vista which would totally negate the reason for buying Win7 in the first place for her machine.
I have gotten microphone boost working on Conexant HD Audio.
The latest drivers from HP still gave some crackles and pops in the audio although there were no DPC latency issues. So i decided to google around for some better drivers... I found some from Acer and some from Asus, both dated March this year (HP's drivers were from sometime 2008). They worked with my laptop and gave better audio performance, but with one little issue - the internal mic did not work at all, only external did. Now, i didn't really need the onboard mike, nor was it any use anyway because it was way too quiet.
However, i noticed this little option in the new drivers that intrigued me. MIC BOOST. Wait a second... So it is available after all. And it went up to 40dB! Indeed, it worked just fine with an external mic. Then, the idea quickly came. "I'm pretty sure everything is in the INF... Why don't i poke around a little?" And i was right. Thus i got the Asus drivers working with the HP internal microphone. I quickly found out that the 40dB boost still wasn't enough, but then i found a way to get EVEN MORE BOOST. Yay!!! The mic boost still goes up to 40dB only, but now its "baseline" is set much higher. Now with 30dB boost you can hear yourself perfectly in a normal voice at a normal working position, and 40dB already drives it into clipping................
My computer is HP Compaq 7900p small. I bought new graphics card which is Asus AMD HD6450. When I test it I saw problem - no sound.
When I click on Sounds tab, I see that AMD HDMI Output-AMD High Definition Audio Device - not plugged in and I couldn't change it to default device. When I troubleshooted it, problem was that one or more audio devices isn't running.
I was searched in google for solution, and found it that I need to change in BIOS from DVI port to HDMI port, but in my comp BIOS version is 7.11 and I don't see where it would be changed.
Only what I did was that I swapped integrated audio to enabled then I get sound from my speakers, but AMD High Definition Audio Device still isn't plugged in. How to change it to default!
A few months ago my audio started crackling and stopping altogether for milliseconds at a time. I have installed XP home on this machine twice and the audio was never quite up to snuff (sounds underwater, but rebooting cures it) but I've never had this kind of problem before. Tried reinstalling the Conexant driver but i still have the problem.
what do you guys know about the compaq f700 series? is this a good laptop model or it this one laptop that i should avoid? i just bought an acer that was a total POS off craigslist that i finally got rid of. and know i'm looking at a 1 year old compaq f700-(F762NR) with 3 gigs RAM for $300. supposedly in perfect condition. i'm just trying to avoid another nightmare like i did with the acer i recently got rid of...
I have a compaq presario f700 and I got it in november of 2007. Anyways today I was surfing the web when all the sudden in lost the internet connection. The little orange light next to the switch was on but the switch was turned on. it would not find any wireless networks so I reinstalled the wireless driver from the recovery program and it worked for like 10 minutes, then the orange light came back on and I lost internet connection. Anyways I have reinstalled windows twice now and I still cannot get the computer to find any wireless connections and the blue light will not come on, it stays orange. Is this a software problem or did my broadcomm wireless hardware thing take a crap?
My volume icon in the system try reads "No audio output device is installed." The audio device is not even recognized in the device manager (i.e. there is no yellow exclamation point or conflicted device to update a driver to). The system simply does not recognize the fact that a sound device exists.
I have tried many, many things: Fresh install (as per the sticky-guide) of Windows Vista x64 Home PremiumFresh recovery from system recovery partitionTried all versions of the drivers from the HP support page (Realtek and Conexant) --- I believe I have conexant, though.Safe mode driver installsDriver installs on a driver signing rebootPutting the computer into hibernate, then resuming (odd, I know.. I heard it worked sometiems).Made sure "Windows Audio" service is enabled in Administrative ToolsServicesInstalled Windows XP drivers for "Microsoft High Definition Audio controller"Flashed BIOS to most recent version F.32Updated chispet drivers to most recent nForce availableeInstalled Vista SP2 I'm sure there must be one or two more things that I've tried and just can't remember. I am running Windows Vista x64 Home Premium with SP1.
I have an HP DV6700 Laptop, and I recently installed Windows 7 Professional (64 bit) (The full version from MSDN academic alliance, not the release candidate). A few days afterward, I had an issue where my speaker icon has a red "x" over it, and when I hover over it it says "no audio output device is installed". The funny thing is that the speakers worked after windows update installed an update, then they stopped a few days later, and I cannot for the life of me get the speakers to work again!
My G61 110 SA notebook fails to load drivers for any usb device, including Iphone 4, until i reboot. i have tried uninstalling all usb devices in the Device Manager, and allowing windows 7 SP1 to reload them, but this does not work??
recently I bought MS Industrial wifi mice. When I plug adapter to usb port on my Inspiron 5520 it says "Device not recognized" . Then I put it to another port ( I have 4) it says the same message. I plugged it to first port again, and it works.
When I put laptop to sleep or when I shut it down and when I wake/turn it on my mice doesn't work . I plug adapter out, and plug in again, the same message .... "device not recognized"
I have a Dell 1545 Inspiron Computer with Vista Ultimate OS. Yesterday for the 2nd time, my mouse and printer won't work because I get the error message USB Device not recognized.
About 3 weeks ago I had the same problem and it self-corrected itself when the latest Windows Update apparently fixed it.
I know there is nothing truly wrong with the USB devices but am not sure what to do. If there is a particular driver for this as my backup DVD for this computer has lots of them listed. I am currently running a System Check but am not sure if that is going to work.
I have been using the same wireless mouse on this computer for three years. Suddenly it stopped working after a Windows update last night. Getting the following:USB Device Not Recongnized.
One of the USB devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned, and Windows does not recognize it. I have uninstalled USB drivers and let windows reinstall them, no change. I did a restore back two days, then windows wouldn't start. Occasionally stops in Dell start up screen and gives 4 beeps. Undid restore, back to same problem stated above.
Since a few days now I get the message'The USB-device was not recognized: One of the USB-devices connected to this computer does not work correclty. The device has not been recognized'. It keeps popping up from my right corner below, every 5 seconds if I don't click it. When I click the message, I get a list of USB devices (ports) there are available. There's one 'Unknown device'. Maybe it has something to do with the finger scan (biometric)? This hasn't been working very good lately..Even when there's no single USB device installed (normally I have a mouse and a Targus laptop chill mat installed as USB devices), it keeps popping up. I tried deleting the USB port from the list (or uninstall it) in Device control, but it seems it keeps happening.
I suddenly got it, I did nothing specific of did not connect any strange devices (except for a projector on the external monitor exit, but that has nothing to do with USB). I also hear the sound for connecting and disconnecting USB devics randomly when I'm on my laptop.

I had to replace the hard disk and reinstall the system from recovery CDs. Trying now to use the 3G connection results in (translated): "No 3G device recognised". I use the SIM card which functions with my pad. I tried then to repair the 3G driver then to deinstall and reinstall it but all without success. I also cannot recognise a corresponding entry in the Device-Manager. How I could get it working again?
I ordered new E6500 that came with Vista on it and I wiped that and have installed XP Pro SP2 on the machine. I have followed the guide on this page and installed everything in the correct order. The only thing that didn't install was the dial-up modem. It errored out and said "No MODEM device was found". Typically on the Latitude laptops I seem to remember installing the modem driver and it taking care of this entry in the device manager, but not this time.
There is a dial-up modem on the laptop and this is the only device that looks to not be installed. There is no webcam, WAN modem, or anything else like that.
Has problem with installing XP onto a E6500? Is the installer for the modem driver just bad or is there possibly something else going on.

I have no audio. It has been previously working, but suddenly stopped. On the small speaker icon there is a red cross indicating "No Audio Output Device is enabled" When I log on to the computer i get a window that says "CWindowsSystem32AUDIOSES.DLL is not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error."
I have attempted to Troubleshoot but unable to get any sound. I have updated the Audio driver, but it is the up to date driver.

I have followed the instructions in Testing for Hardware Failure on HP Support.
My laptop's USB ports are no longer working. I believe that some internal circuitry got fried after I plugged in a USB powered device that had its own power supply. I don't remember exactly what I did because it was while ago. I still like to use the laptop, but without USB its uses are quite limited.
When I plug in a device, nothing happens. It is neither powered nor recognized. All USB ports are affected.
Just received my Thinkpad W520 4270 CTO with bluetooth installed. It was a DOS workstation that I installed Win 7 x64 Ultimate on and I finally got all the drivers installed but the bluetooth software says there is no BT device connected to my laptop. I checked the BIOS settings and confirmed the BT is enabled. I even disabled it, saved, then enabled it to toggle. Hitting the Fn+5 combo doesn't trigger the light or any "Found New Hardware." When the laptop first boots up the BT light flashes along with the wifi light and the HDD activity light. I haven't yet been able to load another OS, but I'm downloading Arch Linux and BackTrack 5 to test to see it's possibly an OS issue.
I realize the sticky about the "do not update the bluetooth drivers" but I'm not getting my bluetooth to work at all, not even being recognized by the OS as an "unknown device."
I have tried everything to get this SD card reader to work but to no avail. Even a fresh install of W7/32 ... nothing... Every time i insert an SD card in the slot... i get a message. USB device not recognized ... one of the usb devices has malfunctioned & Windows does not recognize it... I am also just using a 2 g SD card not an sdhc card.
In the Device Manager.... it shows up as "unknown device" yellow highlight... try to update the driver ... says i already have the best driver..... when i take the sd card out...unknown device disappears... i have also re-installed the drivers from here for the card reader... but nothing....
Furthermore... it seems to lead to an error code 43 ..
I have a 2 year old inspiron 15 (M5030) running win 7 and have had 2 problems that keep coming up

2) I keep getting the message "USB Device Not recognized" message pop up constantly especially when I'm using my laptop on my lap when I don't have anything attached to a USB port. How do I get that to stop popping up...
