This morning upon booting up my ThinkPad W520, the multi-card reader is no longer working. A look at the Device Manager (Windows 7, 64-bit) shows the "Base System Device", and reports "The drivers for this device are not installed." Attempting to get Windows to natively install the drivers does not work. Some googling shows others with similar troubles in the past; recommendations include installing a Ricoh card reader driver for Windows XP or Vista; this did not work. Other available drivers include 8ass82ww.exe and 8axv51ww.exe - these do not work. Installing Lenovo's own Support Center software shows the Base System Device driver is not installed. I can't find a way to install it. I've tried installing driver exe files and searching for those same files using the Windows browse-for-files window when installing drivers for Base System Device.
I have a machine (used for creating master images) with all the drivers loaded. I perform a last CloneZilla image (before doing the sysprep). When I restore the image (to the same machine) the Ricoh Card reader has status of Base System Device under Other Devices. I have tried reapply the drivers, deleting the device with drivers and rebooting so that the machine can redetect the device. No luck, just stays at Base System Device.
Recently I did a clean windows 732 bit installation on my Hp dv2500 notebook because i was having some problem with the original vista OS. Anyway I noticed that, under device manager 3 drivers were missing...namely:
I've just recently upgraded my system from XP to Win 7 and I've been unable to find drivers for two "base system devices". I'm on a Compaq Presario V3440TU and my CPU is a Core 2 Duo T5300, and chipset is Intel 945GM.
The missing drivers are most probably for the Ricoh Card reader in my laptop, since I remember facing the same problem while re-installing XP once...
I have a HP Elitebook 8440p Notebook PC with Windows 7, 64 bit. I had to reinstall Windows 7 and all the necessary drivers. My remaining issue is the Missing Base System Driver. The message I get from Device Manager is:
PC1 bus 68, device 6, function 2. The driver for this device are not installed (Code 28).
I bought my Elitebook 8560p a few weeks back off of a friend. Wiped the entire laptop clean and installed a new OS (Windows 7 Ultimate 32 Bit). I thought I installed all the drivers, but the device manager says im still missing a "Base System Device" driver.
I have an HP Pavilion dv5-1183cl that has been upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7 Ultimate (32bit) and I have some issues.I have four errors showing up in my device manager, three Base System Device and one Unknown Device, and I don't know what they are or where to get the drivers (since I don't know what they are). Additionally, the battery will not charge (there does not appear to be anything wrong with it physically). I am wondering if the below errors are related to the battery issue. Below are the hardware IDs for each error entry.
Base System Device (PCI bus 6, device 0, function 1): PCIVEN_197B&DEV_2382&SUBSYS_3603103C&REV_00PCIVEN_197B&DEV_2382 &SUBSYS_3603103CPCIVEN_197B&DEV_2382&CC_088000PCIVEN_197B&DEV_2382&CC_0880
After reinstalling W7 the lenovo solution center was complaining saying that the System Device Driver is not working. I saw that the SD card reader was not working neither so I assumend the missing driver was that one.
From the Lenovo page I dowloaded the driver for the Multi Card port for W7 and T420. After installing it the message dissapeared and the SD cards were recognized properly.
However, after rebooting the system, after a while, the mesage appeared again and the card reader stopped working.
I did install it again and the same happened. It was working and after two reboots stopped working.
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."
My Dell Inspiron E1505 laptop is missing two driver Base System Device is what they are called. I have downloaded every driver on the site for this laptop yet I still am missing these two. I re-installed Windows Vista Home Premium and now I'm missing drivers that I can't find.
Today I upgraded from Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit to Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and all of my drivers were found without me needing to install anything except for one. In the device manager I have an exclamation by 'Base System Device
I researched I need the Intel SATA AHCI Driver for performing a clean Windows 7 installation
1. Mobile Express Chipset SAAT AHCI controler drivers from the (a) Intel websites (b) Lenovo website and (c) extracting drivers from running system 2. tried supplying drivers on DVD/CD and USB 3. tried to integrate drivers into Windows 7 Installation using RT7Lite 4. did bios update 5. switched from AHCO to compatible mode
In any case it finds the driver as the correct one (when I click hide drivers that are not compatible, the one remains). But always displays no driver found and doesn't continue setup.
This seems to be a bug!!! 1. Is there a way to fix this and perform a clean Windows 7 installation without recovery? 2. Am I trying the wrong driver, but have to install a driver for a different device first???
I am about to replace the HDD with an SDD and there can not use recovery!
on my HP Pavilion dv 9500 series laptop installing Windows 7 Ultimate, I get base system device error, base system device driver not found. devices are on - PCI bus 7, device 9, function 2. & pci bus 7, device 9, function 3. these are found in the device manager under other devices.
I recently installed Windows 7 on my vostro 1015. All the drivers were installed correctly but the 'Base System Device' driver couldn't be installed. I tried the 'Search Automatically for the updated driver software' option but no driver could be found. where can I find the 'Base System Device' driver?
I recently put Windows 7 64 bit Enterprise on a brand new X1 Carbon Model 20A7-CTO1WW and I have a missing unknown device in device manager and when I searched for it I came across nothing for the X1 Carbon I found posts on here for X240. The little research I did I did see someone mentioned it could be the fingerprint scanner. Tried that and it did not work. Also Ran system update and that did not work....
Here is the hardware ID : USBVID_138A&PID_0017&REV_0078
Fingerprint reader was working perfectly fine but I couldn't get it to work with my domain account. After trying some troubleshooting, there was a suggestion to delete the drivers and reinstall it. So I go into device manager and uninstall the fingerprint reader drivers. The problem is now I can't find the fingerprint reader driver! It's not in the lenovo driver page.. I tried Windows drivers update and everything else but still not working. Where do I download the fingerprint drivers?
