HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Win 7 Clean Install Driver
I have a dv5-1235dx that i wiped clean and installed Windows 7 Professional. My first round of updates took care of most drivers like scrolling and sound. My laptop has the touch sensitive button up top for volume, mute, play, pause etc.
The volume buttons work but the volume bar no longer displays on screen and it doesnt "click" as you change the volume.
I have the HP page for drivers [url] but dont know what i need. I installed HP quick launch buttons but that didnt do it.
Does anyone know which driver it is? Also which ones should i get and is there a specific way to install them or just run them?
HP/Compaq :: Can't Install Wifi Driver For Presario CQ50 108NR
I have a Compaq Presario CQ50-108NR and my computer needed a recovery, but I had accidentally formatted that part of the hard drive. So I used my Vista Ultimate disk and fresh installed it on my laptop. Because of this, I have to reinstall all of my drivers on my Laptop.
So, I went to HP's site for the drivers which was here. My priority is to get my wifi/internet working as soon as possible because I can download the rest of the drivers later. So, I download both the Atheros and Broadcom drivers for my laptop. I've installed both of them, but my Laptop still doesn't detect any wifi spots despite there being plenty around me. Also, I keep getting a notification that windows must now install drivers for hardware, yet it when I click auto detect and folder detect (folder where my drivers are), it says unable to find any. Also, here is my wifi card.
HP/Compaq :: Find Me A Display Driver That Will Install DV6t Quad
My specs: dv6t quad. i720M. 320M.
I just cleaned installed.
I already know the 320M Drivers are not yet release. Done.
But I can't find a way to install ANY driver I downloaded. None of them will install. Giving me message that there is no compatible hardware.
The only one that will install is from HP's website, but that only installs NVIDIA HD Audio. It doesn't install display drivers at all. W(T)F. Where is the display driver in that install?
I am stuck on the 1280x720 resolution and I cant go up to my native resolution at 1366x768.
I am tired of already spending countless hours downloading and searching for a driver that will work.
HP/Compaq :: CQ70-211EM: Cannot Install CDROM Driver After Firmware Update
Since updating the firmware on my LG drive (GSA-T50L) on every restart I get a message that Windows (Vista Home Basic) cannot install the driver. I click the second option, which is to "remind me later." I have to do this every time I boot up. The CD ROM is actually working OK as far as I can tell, but I'm still getting the error message. Device Manager doesn't list any driver, and trying to update it through device manager is unsuccessful.
I'm using firmware rev. SC05. I wondered if downgrading back to SC04 would cure the problem, but after hundreds of searches I cannot find the firmware anywhere on the Internet. Why it's so rare, I have no idea.
Maybe the problem has been caused by myself -- I deleted the drivers folder from the recovery partition some time ago to gain a couple of GB of drive space. However, I was under the impression that the CDROM uses Windows' own driver, so maybe this isn't the problem? I'm absolutely stumped. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this issue?
FWIW, I have recovery discs, only I'm unsure about using them because I don't want to wipe the entire system and start from scratch. If it's possible to restore only the missing drivers folder from the recovery partition this might be a good start.
Acer :: Being Prompted To Install Driver For "COPROCESSOR" After Clean Install
Doing a clean install of Vista and keep getting prompted to locate and install driver for "Coprocessor". Have looked in device manager (yellow mark) but I just don't know what it is. Windows says it can't locate software for it.
Don't know what I am looking for on Acers site under drivers, installed all other stuff OK, Realtek, NVidia etc. Could it be a modem driver. Properties in device manager give no clues, it's listed as "other devices" along with the webcam which I have to sort drivers out for too.
Dell :: Install Windows 7: AHCI Driver
I am about to install Windows 7 thanks to my school's MSDNAA program and plan to use the 64-bit version (replacing Vista/32-bit). I remember from the bloatware removal thread where it is highly recommended to install the AHCI driver before installing the OS since there is a performance boost.
Should I continue to use the AHCI driver before installing Windows 7? On Dell's site, they only list vista versions, so I don't know if it is needed or if it even works with 7.
If I should keep using it, should I use the 32-bit or 64-bit driver on Dell's site? I know it sounds obvious that I would want the 64-bit driver if I am upgrading to a 64-bit OS, but I have heard people say many 64-bit drivers are not as reliable as 32-bit, so I am wondering if it matters which one I use
Dell :: 600m Need Driver To Install Mini PCI
My SMC PCMCIA adapter died a few days ago, and I'm really tired of dragging the cable with me as I move around the house. I can get a mini PCI wireless card from eBay [url]. It doesn't look like there's an installation CD in the eBay listing. Will I need a driver for it? What driver would I use? Also, is the antenna built into the card or would I need to add that? If I have to keep buying things to add wireless to this laptop, I'll just stick to USB, although I'd rather not tie up a USB port.
Acer :: : Can't Install Driver Video Under Vista 32 Bit
I have just received an Acer 5935 and I have already formatted and reinstalled Vista 32 Ultimate SP2.
The laptop has two video cards: a nVidia GT130 1GB and an Intel GM4500.
I downloaded the latest nVidia WHQL notebook driver (186.03) for my graphic card but i can't install it.
The installation stops and I have the following message: "hardware not recognised".
I am obliged to use the older Acer driver and you know they never update it to the latest and most performant release.
Anyway, it's not because of the two graphic cards...
I have had the same problem with a Dell Studio 1555 which has an ATi HD4570 512MB.
I tried the latest modded Catalyst (6.6) and I was obliged to install Dell's driver... but I could install the same driver on another laptop (Dell Studio 1535) with a HD3450.
Dell :: Intel GMA 965/x3100 On M1330 - Can't Install Driver
I bought a second hand M1330 on ebay with the intel graphics. I can't seem to get a driver installed no matter which one I use. I've tried both Vista and Windows 7 but in both cases when I'm trying to install the drivers, I get an error message saying
The computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing the software.
Setup with exit.
I've tried both drivers from the intel site as well as the dell site but no luck. Any ideas?

I have the 9600m GT out of a 8930g installed in my Aspire 5720 laptop but every nvidia driver that I try to install says that the hardware is not compatible with the driver or some crap.

Dell :: Install Intel GM45 Express Chipset Driver For XP Pro Configuration
I'm in the process of creating an XP Pro operating system install for my new Inspiron 1545, on a new SATA hard drive (taking out the original SATA hard drive from Dell with Vista preinstalled to use as separate bootup opsys which I have to reinstall to zap all the bloatware later).
Things were going really really well (I thought) with setting up my new drive with XP and I got past the problem that bites most folks (SATA hard drive not being recognized by XP install), by switching the drive in BIOS to ATA mode b4 doing the install.
I got XP completely installed & activated AOK, with only a few minor wrinkles which I was able to figure out. Applied a few simple quick tweaks to XP to make it easier for me to use (disabling autoplay, killing the search dog, setting folder views, removing stuff I don't use like Windows messenger, MSN, etc).
Then I went to install all of the necessary Dell drivers from the website for the 1545 for (in order) Intel GM45 Chipset, Video, Ethernet, Dell Quickset, Wireless, Sound, Card reader, and Alps touchpad.
I had figured that stuff out already and had all the drivers copied over to the new PC ready to go .....
Sony :: Vaio Sluggish After Clean Windows Install, Driver (S Series)
i just reinstalled winxp sp3 on a sony s3xp, i don't have the vaio installation cd but i did a clean reinstall of windows xp and installed essential drivers but it was quite slow, eg seconds to load a directory, or long pauses during web browsing
now i've installed all the original drivers and utilities and am running without power saving but it's still sluggish, eg the mouse pointer jumps about the screen rather than moves continuously when the cpu is under any load at all
Dell :: Bluetooth Driver And My Sigmatel Audio Driver Not Working XP
here's the problems:
1. The damn CPU whining? I know everyone has it. Dell said last time I called that they're working on some way to fix it. The new A09 Bios didn't seem to do anything for me, or anyone else apparently according to dell's support forum. What's up with that?
2. My laptop wobbles on the top right and bottom left corners. it only wobbles if I use my 6cell batt, and it doesn't wobble w/ the 9 Cell. So does that mean the 6cell's rubber feet thing on the top right corner isn't high enough? Can dell fix that?
3. The "increase volume" media button thing isn't as responsive as the other ones. i have to press really hard to get it to respond. all the other ones i just tap it lightly, and it works.
Here's some questions that I know Dell has no clue what to do with:
4. I'm currently using Vista Ultimate on this only because I couldn't get my bluetooth driver and my sigmatel audio driver to work properly on XP. since dell hasn't released a xp bluetooth driver, i used WIDCOMM 5.1 stack, and the bluetooth headset and stereo headset drivers would disable the sigmatel drivers. really annoying. cmd51229 says he's gotten it to work:..........................

Dell :: Need To Install Vista Sp1 For Software.....can I Install With No Battery Detected?
I will try to make this short and understandable......
I bought a XPS M1330 iwth Vista Home Premium Bios A07 in January 2008.
April 2008 I tried to install updates and it messed up my Microsoft Office 2007 so I got it back working and did not mess with anymore updates.
Around June 2008 I started having the notorious battery issues. The battery ran down while I was on it and the battery has never worked since. At first it said connected,
but not charging but then it eventually died while I was trying to fix the problem and now it says battery not detected and it says the ac adapter is not recognized (I have the original AC adapter sent with the computer) .....
HP/Compaq :: FX 570M Driver
I have an hp 8510w notebook and I just updated its graphic card driver for Nvidia FX 570M via Windows Update (dated 29.1.2009) because so far I had positive experiences with it. But not this time!

HP/Compaq :: Driver- DV3 Series
i bought a dv3 series laptop, as usual it comes with crapware vista.
I downgraded it to windows xp without a problem. i am having lot of issues trying to install the drivers.
I loaded sp3, right after i installed windows. I downloaded the drivers from [Drivers] HP dv3, Compaq CQ35 / CQ36 (INTEL) most of the drivers installed fine, the problem i am getting is with the graphic card driver, nvidia refuses to install, saying that cannot find hardware configuration for your specific hardware type. for the sound i install the UAA update for sp3 which i found from [url] after i install the operating system finds audio on high speed blah blah, load the driver and when i restart the soundcard disappears. cant get my head around this. after installing most of this, i am left with 4-5 unknown device entries in device manager. cant figure out what is causing this.
HP/Compaq :: Dv5 Sound Driver
The sound overlay keeps coming on every 2 seconds with the sound like its changing the volume, but it isnt. If i try using my finger it goes up and down maybe 2 bars then goes back to where it was stuck at after going mental for another 5 seconds. I can only change the volume using the taskbar icon, but the overlay keeps coming on. mute doesnt work, pause/play etc doesnt work, quickplay. You can imagine its incredibly annoying.
Is there a driver i can reinstall or something?
Its a vid file of the problem, when you see the bars going up and down, thats me trying to change the volume.

HP/Compaq :: Network Driver
I upgraded an old Compaq (1200Xl500) from WIN ME to XP not realizing this was a bad choice. Everything went okay except I lost my network adapter and PCMCIA which worked fine before the upgrade. No help from HP support and no drivers to download there either. I need a Texas Instruments PCI 1410 card bus controller. When I do a search I find links but nothing that works. Some links just refer me to Windows update? and there is nothing there either.
Acer :: Freezing - Tried To Install My Original Drivers And They Won't Install
I have had an aspire 5920g for about 18 months now and it was all working fine until I updated the graphic drivers, but the drivers stopped installing halfway through and now I can't install any graphic drivers.
I tried to install my original drivers and they won't install. The system keeps freezing and I think thats the problem.
I've tried making a recovery disc but erecovery won't recognize blank DVD's and acer 'support' are only too happy to grab you by your feet, turn you upside down and let all your money fall out so they can charge you for a reovery disc - absolutely ridiculous - instead of actually trying to help me.
And also for some reason a yellow triangle appeared next to the ACEYTS4Y IDE controller a week after I got it but up until now didn't seem to cause any problems.
HP/Compaq :: Want To Clean Install 7
Just got my "HP Pavilion dv6-1362nr Entertainment Notebook PC".
It's loaded with #@#@ !

How can I clean install it? I want it ultra-clean.
HP/Compaq :: How Should I Install Windows 7
I have an HDX18t with an SSD partitioned for Vista and the Win7 RC. When I get my upgrade disc for Win 7, I'm considering installing it over the Win 7 RC partition and leaving the Vista partition in tact for now in case their are any problems with the install. I've read that you can do a clean install even with the upgrade disc. Is this a viable and/or advisable method?
HP/Compaq :: DV9548US Won't Install 7
When I boot off the DVD (doesn't matter if it's the MSDN RTM or the 90 day Enterprise trial, nor does 32 or 64 bit matter), it just hangs. It doesn't start Windows 7's setup process, doesn't give an error message, doesn't boot into Vista.
Also, potentially related, her laptop is running a hacked BIOS that removes the white list. (I stole her 4965N and put it in my MSI MS-1651. When I sold it off, I put the Atheros 5007EG from my NC10 in its place). I don't know if this would be the cause for it to hang, but given its lack of problem booting Vista, XP, Ubuntu, or Mint discs, I doubt it.
I'm getting a DV8000 on Wednesday that has a 3945ABG in it. I would like to, assuming the card is working (light's on, but Device Manager didn't see it, optical drive was busted so I couldn't boot into Linux at the time, hoping it's a software SNAFU), put it in her DV9548US and boot back to the official HP BIOS. Anyone know of any problems running a 3945ABG in the DV9500 series? I know it came in earlier DV9000s, so I hope the model would support it; with the fact that it's an HP card, I'm hoping that it will not throw white list errors as well.
(I'll be running a hacked BIOS on the DV8000 to run the Atheros 5007EG in it if all goes well.)
HP/Compaq :: HDX 16t Windows 7 Install
Just installed Windows 7 on my HDX16t. For the most part, everything is working great with minimal drivers install. Had to install the memory card reader, and a few others but worked fine with Vista drivers.
What I can't get working are the quick launch buttons. The mute works (although it doesn't change colors), the volume up and down works, The treble / Bass does NOT work, wifi works, and the media smart, stop, play, eject , etc do NOT work.
Anyone get these working with Windows 7? If so can you point me to the drivers and or process?

HP/Compaq :: HP 6710b X3100 Driver
Im running Vista 32 on a 6710b and I want to install the latest X3100 driver from the Intel site, but it tells me the driver is not made for my laptop and to get the driver from the manufacture of the laptop. Ive seen this come up with a google search, but in every instance, there is no solution. Is there a way to install the latest drivers from Intel, or do I have to wait for HP to make them available on their site?
