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?
I am going to install MSDN version Win 7 on my dv6700. Is there any issues, esp. drivers issues so far with this setup? Do current vista drivers work well with Windows 7? I am not concerned about big things like display drivers. I am just crossing fingers for drivers like authentec, wifi and bluetooth?
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.
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.
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.
I purchased an HP 15-G013CL a few days ago from Costco and installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. Everything seems to be working except I am unable to successfully install the wireless drivers. There are three devices in Device Manager that will not install properly. PCI Device, PCI Encryption/Description Controller, and the Network Controller. I tried installing the chip set here : [URL] ....... Also, I have tried installing the drivers from HP but it doesn't seem to be sticking.
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
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.
I have looked everywhere and even found some SATA drivers that worked for other Acer SATA laptops, but not the 3050. I looked at other posts for the 3050 on this forum which helped me get other drivers, but not the SATA drivers.
I just bought my HP 14-d003tx (laptop) with no OS and Drivers..Installed my Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bitSO, I search on the internet on our PC for drivers and found this.URL....I downloaded all Drivers except the Software Multimedia.. I was downlaoding/installing stuff one after the other..I Installed Chipset Drivers first.. Audio.. BIOS... then when I installed Display Driver it says "must instal intel® driver first"Then I tried installing the LAN driver.. it was successful.. but...when I installed the WLAN driver (the SP64786.exe) it just unloaded its contents and didn't continue installing.. I went to the folder to click on Setup.exe or Install.exe but the Installshield won't continue and won't finish its Loading (Installing green thingy) and just nothing happens...I pushed the wireless button on the keyboard and it automatically installed the Bluetooth device ad was successful then it goes to orange light again..
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?
im going to vlite my own vista install cd an strip it of all the drivers and crap i dont need or want but im concerned about the security side of things
i have the fips fingerprint scanner and i have seen some people having issues with getting it to work properly after a reinstall i think the control point software has to be installed first is this true ?
anyone else using a vlited image on their machine and is everything running smoothly?
Earlier i changed my window vista home premium to window 7, but then i changed it to window vista ultimate.
when i had window 7, my graphics card which is nvidia work perfectly fine, but after i change to window vista ultimate, i " lost " my nvidia driver. i downloaded nvidia driver at ww.nvidia.com but when i tried to install it, i get an error " The NVIDIA setup program could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hrdware. Setup will now exit."
I really want to install that driver, i have nvidia graphic card but i cant install the driver
I can not install WiFi driver for Dell Lattitude E5530, Windows 7 Professional 64-bit.InstallShield Wizard aborted with this message:"This platform is not compatible with Intel(R) WiDi or the application is in use."I downloaded all drivers after giving the Service Tag of my laptop and installed then in the correct order. Only WiFi driver failed to install.
I just can't believe it, but i cannot install my wireless driver for my new HP Pavilion.Just bought it yesterday and clean installed win 7. Expecially the Wlan driver is missing in the drivers list from HP.
I installed Windows 8 Enterprise 64-Bit Edition. I am facing is that I am not able to install the drivers for R5 M230 Graphics. I updated the BIOS, tried downloading latest drivers from AMD website too. Still, the system is just not recognising the hardware. It is showing up as Video Controller. But I am unable to install driver even after using driver update option.
so i tried installing from the device manager, from the hp site, from the realtek site, from the ralink site, and nothing. i dont even know what adapter i have because all it says is "network controller". When i try to install it from the device manager it doesnt find anything. when i try to install the downloaded drivers it does its thing then says it didnt install properly, and it will keep saying that.
As said, my laptop's model number is dv6-6c13nr. My laptop's Windows 7 was FUBAR from a computer virus that my sister managed to get on it somehow. I just DBANed the entire hard drive and did a clean install of Windows 7. Everything was able install just fine except for the wireless adapter/driver.
I tried both the Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver and the Ralink 802.11 b/g/n WiFi Adapter linked in my PC model's driver page. On both of them, whenever I click on the downloaded file, nothing happens after the file unpacks, no installers run. I've tried running it regularly and running it as an administrator, I've also tried running the installers directly from where they were unpacked into the C drive, regularly and as an administrator.
All of the other drivers and software on my PC model's driver page installed just fine aside from the wireless, it's the only thing, and the most important thing, that I can't seem to get to work. The version of Windows 7 that shipped with the PC was Windows 7 Home Premium, the version that I have and that I installed is Windows 7 Ultimate. Are the drivers not Ultimate compatible?
I've also considered installing earlier versions of the drivers, but I can't find legacy versions anywhere that doesn't look sketchy.
