Gta San Andreas doesnt work after installation of new driver.

Question: Gta San Andreas doesnt work after installation of new driver.

I installed a new driver ( http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=865 ) For my Intel 82845g Graphics Controller and now when i start up the game it crashes. Before it worked fine but now when i start it the game crashes. Any way i can remove what I've done or get it back to where it was when it worked?

Preferred Solution: Gta San Andreas doesnt work after installation of new driver.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Gta San Andreas doesnt work after installation of new driver.

Well i think it could be possibly a virus. Because i hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete and i get the message "Task Manager has been Disabled by your administrator" Well this is a home computer and im the only one who uses it so thats not it. I fixed that up and got it working. But my other family members said that a bunch of popups(like 26) opened themselves up when the computer was idle and they were all asking to buy something and all had to do with porn much more theory on the hole virus thing anyway yeah just updating.

I have a problem. My prolific driver serial to usb doesn't work. I have windows 8 64 bit. I have tried several things but not succeed. I have read that ther is a ser2pl64.sys 90Kb which will work but I cannot find it on the internet. Can anyone help me with this file. Thanks.

I finally succeed to get a working version again.

Answer:prolific driver doesnt work on Windows 8

I have a Prolific USB/Serial converter. I had an older version that worked on Win 7 but would not work in Win 8. I bought a new model (with updated internal chip) and that now works in Win 8.

It isn't the driver, its the chip version, from what I found out doing google searches.

Answer:Lenovo energy manegement doesnt work after update GPU driver

Hi Livarna, Welcome to Lenovo Community!
As per the query we understood that you are facing the issue with Energy Management application on your Ideapad Y580. Those function key will be compatible only with Lenovo graphic drivers, hence you will not able to use the function keys if you are using direct link of the manufacturer. We do have latest Energy Management application is for your system but it is supported for latest Windows 8.1. I suggest you to use only Lenovo drivers for your system to work smoothly. Hope this helps.
Best regards,
Hemanth Kumar

After experiencing Wireless issues I tried to upgrade my Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro 13" with Windows 8.1 64Bit to the latest drivers from the lenovo support site. Ever since I cannot connect to the WLAN anymore. What puzzles me is that the driver status in the device manager shows a different driver version than what I have installed (uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it doesn't change anything here). What puzzles me is the Lenovo Website shows driver version 16.6.0.8 (released 25.Jan.2014, see link below), whereas my system display version is 16.6.2.1 (dated 31.10.2013). Hence I thought I have another version from somewhere else on my and removed all driver versions I could find.Checking driver details I get the follow file versions:   C:\windows\system32\drivers\NETwbw02.sys    version 16.6.2.1 Intel, dated 2011   C:\windows\system32\drivers\Netwfw02.dat       no version or publisher   C:\windows\system32\drivers\vwifibus.sys          version 6.3.9600.16384 Microsoft Still, whenever I deinstall the driver, install the files from lenovo and click "Detect new device" my system pulls the drivers as listed above and is incapable of connecting to any WiFi. Windows 8.1. shows no connections available and doesn't connect anymore. How can I get my WLAN back? regards   Florian Lenovo Driver URL: http://support.lenovo.com/e...

Answer:Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro: WiFi doesnt work after driver upgrade

hi Florian,
 
If Windows Update is configured to automatically fetch updates from Microsoft then the machine most likely have installed the Intel driver update for Intel(R) Wireless N-7260 as discussed in this article (which explains the different driver versions).
 
Things that you can try:
1. If the machine comes with the Intel(R) Wireless N-7260, navigate to:
 - Device Manager 
 - Network Adapters 
 - Intel(R) Wireless N-7260 (right click > update driver software) 
 - Browse my computer for driver software
 - Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer (you will then see a list of drivers, check if you have the version 16.6.0.8 from Lenovo and choose it and observe.
 
2. Restart the machine and boot into the BIOS (by pressing F2 on the Lenovo screen). Once you're in, navigate to the Configuration Tab and ensure Wireless is set to Enabled (if applicable).
 - Link to picture
 
3. Perform a System Restore and choose a date before the issue began. (this will restore the unit to an earlier point in time where wireless connection is working fine)
 
4. Perform a Refresh / Reset or press the OneKey Recovery button (this will restore the unit to factory settings - ensure that you backup important files first).
 
 
Regards

I?m sorry to hear that ?Dolby Digital plus Advanced Audio? is not working as expected in your G510 Laptop and displaying an error message to install the upgraded version of the Dolby driver in the computer, below are the troubleshooting steps to check and resolve this issue.
 

Open Device Manager. (Right-click on the Start button and choose Device Manager).
Expand the Sound, Video and Games Controllers section.Right Click on the Conexant Smart Audio HD item and choose Uninstall.
Still in Device Manager, click on Action>Scan for new Hardware.
The Conexant Smart Audio item will re-appear.Right-Click on it and choose update driver.Navigate to d:\drivers\audio.When that's done, close Device Manager.Open File Manager and navigate to D:\drivers\Audio\DolbyGUI and install Dolby Digital plus Advanced Audio.

Hello, I own a Lenovo W530 (Machine Type 2438).After installing Windows 10 the Lenovo Solution Center recommended a battery update, which I did, but didnt work. Since that I had some problems with my BIOS, but they stopped (re-enter date) . About two weeks ago, my battery was empty and my laptop crashed.When restarting it my display didn`t work any more. I thought that my display / display cable broke (i had reordered a display a week before due to stripes on my lcd caused by dumb cleaning).After the new display didnt work I noticed that one cable of the intern display connection broke:so I ordered a new intern display connection  After installing it, it didnt work too and I observed, that I can connect and work via an external monitor problemless, but when trying to "duplicate" the laptop screen to the monitor it stays black, as the display does... What do you recommend?  Best regards!

Try re-installing the previous version of the drivers. Make certain you choose the drivers for XP though (there are two sets - XP and Vista). There may be something in the new driver set that buggered up the hotkey combination.Hope this helps

Hi,

I own a Tecra 9000, with a Yamaha AC-XG sound card.
The problem is that since I installed Windows XP with SP2 included, I lost my sound.

I know also that Toshiba is aware of this situation and they have managed to post a solution for it. I've tried this solution:

Detail:

The Yamaha AC-XG driver uses PortCls function for checking the operatingsystem version. XP Service Pack 1, PortCls function is changed, then the Yamaha driver cannot get operatingsystem version correctly. The operatingsystem provides the version for Windows 95. Therefore the Operatingsystem has a blue screen. Therefore Microsoft added the workaround and illegal drivers are blocked from working on SP1. This issue also happens Windows XP SP2.
Yamaha already provides the fixed drvier to Toshiba. The fixed driver version is the following;
yacxg.sys 6.13.10.2152 with software synthesizer
yacxgc.sys 6.13.10.3152 without software synthesizer


How to fix this issue:
Install the fixed driver on a system before/after installing Windows XP Service Pack 2.
Install steps:
(1) Unzip an attached file on your hard disk.
(2) Run SETUP.EXE
(3) Click the Next button.
(4) Choose "Yes, I want to restart my computer now" and click Finish.


A toshiba engineer told me that first of all I needed to install the old driver "5.12.01.3141", and it worked out ok, but still no sound.
And then he told me to install the version "6.13.10.2152", but th... Read more

Answer:Tecra 9000: After SP2 installation the Yamaha sound driver does not work

Hello

Can you somewhere obtain WXP without SP installations (or maybe including SP1) CD? Tecra 9000 is pretty old notebook model (6 years old) and maybe you should start install OS like original recovery image.

Install WXP without SP and configure all hardware components. After doing this make SP2 update. Maybe this installations order will help to have functioning OS.

I call them saying my computer doesnt work well and that some buttons are not working, they dont even care to ask what the problem is they send me to sales and the sales lady books me for 79$ some CDs for OS installation. The OS CD and drivers come home and I call some guy for 3 hours and then reinstall every **bleep** thing and then to see that the buttons and sliderbars still dont work..
 
Next time when i raise a complaint, this lady from sales again asks me to upgrade to Premium so that they can help me better, and this time its another 120$ more and then after I pay the money boom no response... till today, I have tried calling them if i press 0 for support, it goes to a wait tone music for sometime, then rings and then no response..
 
I would like to know if Lenovo can fix this issue for me, Lenovo has ripped me off 2 times for absolutely no service and i still havent got my problem rectified... All internet and forum solutions like driver installations etc etc are tried but in vain, is there anything called after sales support with Lenovo? if so plese call me at XXXXX to get me a resolution
 
Thanks and regards,
Jayakrishna XXXXX

im using windows pro sp2. last week i had downloaded something and then i started to get advertisements even when a browser wasnt open. it was about 3 different ones but went off every 30 secs to 5 mins. i went through some windows files in safe mode deleted some things here n there and ending processes.
i was successful in stopping the advertisements. although not long afterwards the internet would stop after 5 mins and i would have to keep restarting. once i tried to system restore it wont go back past the day i started having this internet problem. im not sure if its related to the previous problem or if i deleted a file i should not have?

hello. this is zaid. I have downloaded itunes 9 on my pc, and the installer does not run. I tried different sources for downloading the itunes, but still didnt work either. I also tried downloading itunes 8, also no positives. I downloaded the a clean up utility, for all various errors. and no positive outcomes as i have read an article on one of the forums. when i downloaded the utility, the installation setup ran without complications. but also i have the same problem with downloading skype too- the installation runs, but when it finishes, it tells we are having problems connecting to the download server. to download an alternative installer for skype, click the download button. if you press on the download button it will redirect you to skypes website.
i guess the same problem is causing the same issue.
although i restarted all servers through "RUN > services.msc"

Hi all,

I am trying to install virtual PC on my win 7 pro pc along with win XP mode.
I have installed the xp part and it appears to have worked saying something about a virtual drive created (?) but when I run the virtual PC install using file Windows6.1-KB958559-x64-RefreshPkg.msu from Microsoft website, it starts up saying installing
but then says searching for updates on computer and does nothing. I left it for hours with the scrolling green bar and still no progress. Any ideas how i can get this installed as i really need to use some software that is only xp compatable.

I have created Windows 10 USB installation media using the Media Creation Tool and used it to upgrade to Windows 10, however when the upgrade is done Windows 10 will not activate and says" Key has been blocked". I started the upgrade process from within Windows 7( I did not boot from USB). I also selected to skip updates because my internet is really slow i'm just trying to get through the upgrade to activate and clean install. I also selected to only Keep personal files because when I tried 5 times to keep personal files, apps and settings it kept getting an error and reverting to Windows 7.

The error code is get is 0xC004C003

How can I get Windows 10 to activate?

Answer:Windows 10 doesnt activate after upgrading with USB installation media

Have a look at this post. You may have to roll back to the original OS, upgrade directly with the media creation tool & then it should be activated.

Hi all, have a very irritating problem. My DVD-RW doesnt read any disc at all. It just shows an empty disc when i try to access it in "My Explorer"

This came about after I installed a couple of virtual disc drive programs, namely Alcohol, PowerISO and the most recent being Magic ISO. It surfaced only after Magic ISO.

I've tried a coiuple of solutions but none of them work, which are

i) Installing all the above 3 virtual disc progs and uninstalling them
ii) Upgrading the firmware for the DVD-RW
iii) Uninstalling and reinstalling the driver for the DVD-RW
iv) Deleting a couple of registry keys left behind by a faulty uninstallation of alchohol previously.

Nothing seems to work. No disc can be read in the DVD drive, even thought it seems to operate noramlly. Hope I can get some advice on what to do. Thanks!!

Am using Win XP Pro, SP2. And the DVD-RW is a Samsung SH-W162C.

As I am running the x64 version of XP Pro i often have to find different versions of the programs i use, such as itunes; Apple don't make a version for my OS, but do supply a x64 version for Vista - but the numpties don't let you install it on the XP x64... for seemingly no reason. So when I want to update itunes, i have to get the x64 version, unpack the exe file and edit the msi files using Orca, following the methods described here.

I've done this before to upgrade itunes and i have had no trouble, but when i tried to update to the latest version (9.0.1), it decided not to work. It gave an error about the Apple Mobile Device Support not being able to be installed on x64 blah blah blah, so i edited the msi for that and it let me go through with it, but as it got to the end of the installation (the starting services section) another error came up stating that 'Ipodservice failed to start.

Hi everyone
I am trying to install windows 7 64 with a new M3A79-T. It keeps freezing at expanding files with error 0x80300001.
I figure this might be due to missing sata drivers but when i click load drivers during the installation
windows doesn't recognize anything. I tried with the mobo support dvd and i tried burning drivers from the mobo website and using that dvd. In either case i can browse to the dvd but all the folders
in it are empty, so nothing to install even though the driver are definitely there. when i click on scan
i get a message that no signed device drivers were found.

I have no idea where to go from here.

Answer:installation freezes at expanding files and doesnt recognize drivers

The error is almost always a bad installer. Where did you get Win7? Did you burn the DVD yourself? Confirm the ISO and burn another using ImgBurn at 4x speed, or write confirmed ISO to flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu.

By disconnect LAN, do you mean you unplug the ethernet cable, or do you repair, or disable/reenable the internet connection from windows?

You interrupted Setup while it was copying windows file from Setup {.CAB] file.

I can click ok, cancel, skip file, or details. This happens with several files ( i click skip) until i get to one that i cannot skip.

This happens at 14% completion. At that point the cd drive stops the whirring noise. I didnt touch ANYTHING.

Whats wrong, and how can i fix it? Thanks.
 

Answer:Why doesnt it ever work for me?!

Ouch. Sounds like the disk is damaged. Hows it look as far as scratches go? You can try cleaning the disk using rubbing alcohol. I use a piece of toilet paper wetted with alcohol. Gently wipe the disk from the centerhole outward. Hopefully that will get it to read ok.

Answer:T61 does it have a mic if so why doesnt it work ?????????

The mic on your computer is near the right side of the touchpad. You can learn this by opening Help Center on your ThinkPad (press ThinkVantage / Help & Support / Learn about my computer). Here you can find visual information about what is where on your machine.Why are you so sure that you mic does not work? If I were you I could check all the relevant information about the mic that is available on your system (try Windows XP help and Control Center). Finally, you can test it by using Lenovo System Toolbox.

here is my dilemma
Imma make this quick:

under the windows sound setup i tried to configure the mic but it wouldnt work. i get a popup saying "Make sure your audio hardware is working properly and check your audio configuration in the audio devices and sound themes control panel" http://img291.imageshack.us/img291/8367/micproblem2.jpg

so i decided to reinstall the audio drivers from the gigabyte disk. well after rebooting, i had no sound through the speakers and no sound through the mic still. windows tells me i have no speakers plugged in and i cant even begin to change volume levels anywhere. i re-flashed my bios of the board from f7 to f10 but that didnt change anything

please help, this is starting to piss me off (more so cause it slate and i just wanted to game after work)

Update:

21-FTP 80-HTTP 53-DNS, i use bullet proof ftp server but i cant get it to

work. when i try to connect to the server with the lan given ip

(192.168.0.101) it works but it doesn work when i use my ip behind

the router or if i use my dns. the problem started after i reset my

router i have the router set to a dynamic ip i dont kno if i need to set it

back to a PPPoE because im using dsl.

Answer:ftp doesnt work??

Yes you should set everything back to the was it was before you reset it. If you used PPPoE in the past and now it does not work then that could be the problem.

a while back i plugged in my joystick into my front panel usb (man, this sounds like a bad porno script written by a nerd) and my computer just went dead. what happened was the capicators in my PSU just up and popped basically. anyway, i cant use usb 2.0 anymore. its enabled in my bios, its deffinetly supported, its broke on all ports so im not plugging it in in the wrong spot. is it possible that there was like, a voltage irregularity but it only effected my usb 2.0 controller? everything else works as expected.

my mobo is a gigabyte GA-7N400-L

also, i just looked in the hardware manager and theres a question mark next to my Universal Serial Bus controller. i do have the latest drivers for my motherboard and the chipset and whatnot. would i have to install the USB controller seperately then?
 

Answer:USB 2.0 Doesnt work

Well, since it happened when you plugged something in the USB port then it is very likely it fried something in the USB controller but nowhere else.

You should find out if it was your joystick that caused the damage or your USB ports were wired to the motherboard wrong.

You could get your motherboard replaced if it is under warranty or just buy a PCI USB controller.

Ok i just bought a Kingston 1gb ddr2 667mhz ram to go with my other stick of ram which is exactly the same.Well the only difference appears to be the chipset, on the new one it looks as though its elpida but on the current one it just says kingston on the chips.When i put them both in though and turn on the computer i get 1 long beep, followed by 2 short beeps.when i have just the new one in on its own the computer starts to load but then stop with no beeps. But when its just the old one on its own, it works fine.I thought i would try here before i assume its faulty ram. What is also odd is i checked a site for asus beep codes and 1 long beep followed by 2 shorts is supposed to mean there is a video adapter error.I dont think its a lack of power as i have a 500w PSU.And yes before you ask, i did take anti-static precautions.Any help is appreciated?

Answer:Ram doesnt appear to work.

What happens if you take the old ram out and place the new stick of ram where the old one was.There is a bit of difference between the brand you have mentioned, and other ones such as Corsair and Kingston. These are reputuble and very good manufacturers of RAM and will almost certainly work in most computers. Other, cheaper brands may not work, because of compatibility differences.

Answer:XP Pro doesnt work on my HP

Are you doing a clean instal or repair instal cos a clean instal would re-format your drive and there couldn't be any residual HP software I would have thought. Of course a clean instal loses all your progs

Answer:Spy bot doesnt work.

Hello The BRat,

Lets try Ad-Aware. Download it from my signature. While your at it download CWShredder also. Don't do anything with it yet.

Ad-Aware FULL SCAN:

Install the program and launch it.

First in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on Check for updates now then click Connect and download the latest reference files.

From main window :Click Start then under Select a scan Mode tick Perform full system scan.

Next deselect Search for negligible risk entries.

Now to scan just click the Next button.

When the scan is finished mark everything for removal and get rid of it.(Right-click the window and choose select all from the drop down menu and click Next)

Before restart, Empty Recycle Bin.

Restart your computer.

Update HijackThis also. Yours is out of date.

Download HijackThis from link in my signature. Save it to a permanent folder (I create a new folder in C:\ named HJT). Open and hit scan, then save log. Once it is saved it will open in notepad. Select all from the edit button, copy and paste the results here. Don't fix anything with it yet! Someone experienced with the logs will advise you.

Hey guys,

What happened was that I installed IE7 and then realised it kept crashing and used up too much resources on my system and made it run slow so I then uninstalled it and it left IE6 which is what I was using before. However, since this uninstall, IE6 (which worked fine until I installed IE7) stopped working even though my internet connection is fine. The reason I never really bothered about fixing it was that I was using FF as my default browser at the time so I never really missed it.

Today, I needed to use IE so I reinstalled IE 7 including all the latest updates for it from the ms website to see if the problem with IE would correct itself but still no joy - it says 'IE cannot display the webpage'.

I then tried also to use the diagnose problem function within IE to work out the problem but no joy. Ive attached a screenshot of what comes up when I run the diagnose connection problem function in IE7. I also tried to use the ietab add-on in Firefox but that doesnt work either.

Just to confirm, my OS is windows XP SP2 and my internet connection is fine and I use Firefox 2 with no probs. Im using McAfee Firewall and internet explorer exe has full access so it cant be my firewall that is the problem.



All assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:IE Doesnt work...help!

Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD.

is these dlls not compatible with vista? how can register theme?
thanks for any help

Answer:some dlls doesnt register in windows vista during installation of Rational rose2003

Apparently Rational Rose isn't compatible with Vista, thus the trouble you're having. You can try running it in Virtual PC with XP installed on it.. I'm assuming you have an XP disk.

I would suggest running it in compatibility mode but I'm not sure that stands true if you can't even install it in the first place.

When you boot with XP CD, XP detects the HDD, we formatted, Xp copied
all files, and asked for reboot to continue installation
At this point after reboot, it stops, it doesnt boot at all
If i again insert the XP CD and boot from it, it boots, asks me

Answer:Compaq P450 PIII 256 MB RAMnew UDMA4 HDD- Doesnt Boot after XP Installation

Re: Hard drive

Is the hard drive stet to master this has to be done on the drive normaly by the IDE or what ever data connector but not allways. You are looking for a set of pins about 4x2 - 8x10 and there will be a little jumper on these pins you can move I would use a set of inverted tweesers these are spring tweesers you push in on them to open them and the close on their own. Look on the drive and ensure the drive is jumped to "Master" if this is not the problem look in the CMOS and BIOS setting make sure the "Boot Settings" are set correct and drive detecet is set to "Auto".

Aside from that I could only say maybe Compaq restricted the size of hard drives you can use on that system get a pro to look at it maybe.

HelloI bought a s7 392 two years ago from USA. And now I dont live in USA anymore. When I was in my country about 2 years ago, I knew that I bought a faulty good which always turned off for no reason. So I sent the laptop to USA with my friend. After that Acer replaced its motherboard. However ever since then my laptop doesnt go to sleep when I close the lid. And no it is not a software problem. At first I thought that it was due to 8.1 windows incompability which damaged the drivers. But this week I updated to windows 10 and problem persist. I think repairman who fixed my laptop broke the sensor of the lid. Is it easy to fix the sensor on my own? because since I had really really bad experience with Acer support I dont want their help anymore.( Only if they refund me or something) I will never ever buy an Acer product again.

I have had windows vista for the past 5 years and I'm ready for a change. With the recent failing of my graphics card (Nvidia Geforce 8300 GS) I went out and purchased a new one (Nvidia GeForce 210). Nothing extra special but I was certainly excited about it after dealing with yellow lines, black dots, and a far too large screen for anyone to handle, for a few months. I waited as long as I did to replace the graphics card, because (and this is just my luck) my computer started to act funny around the same time it started failing. Silly me, I thought maybe it was just a virus or malware issue. Mostly I just like to fix things myself and I made it a goal of mine to figure out the problem. After giving it a month of extensive searching I gave up..or gave in. Bought the new graphics card, went crazy and bought windows 7 too. I just wanted to clean install and start over at this point. (Yes, everything is backed up). I wasnt really sure about how to go about doing this though and decided to install the graphics card first. After doing so though, and this was an after thought, I cleand installed Vista because maybe I should've uninstall the previous drivers first? Anyway, Vista loaded, beautifully.... and this is with just a standard VGA graphics adapter? How is that possible? I tried running off VGA just 2 days prior and it looked like a even more messed up version of a really bad safe mode before I did the clean install? Well, anyway, Im not really complaining.

Answer:dvd drive doesnt work, please help

Personally it might be best to spend $35 on a new dvd unit and your problem should go away. However one of the few windows problems I have encountered with cd/dvd's was after installing the hardware driver for the unit it would have the yellow exclamation beside the dvd/cd drive in device manager and would not properly install on the newer operating systems. In that case I researched: how to delete the high and low filters for dvd, and that solves that issue. That does not sound like your issue. Have you another unit you could install in and see if the problem disappears? Most likely needs replaced....10 min. job. it is 5yrs old.
