"The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device

Question: "The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device

"The installation failed because a function driver was not specified for this device instance"
I received this message while installing a USB driver. I have an 80GB External USB 2.0 hard drive attached that was working great a few days ago. I logged on one day to find this device "unrecognized". When I checked the device manager, it said that the driver was missing (?!). I searched for the driver on the MS website, and the device manager seemed to find a suitable one, but upon install I got the message above.

I found the old driver on my system – which seemed odd to me, deleted it, tried to reinstall and received the same message.

I understand that USB 2.0 is backwards compatible, plus it was working previously, so it seems strange that it suddenly died.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

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.)

Hello everyone. Hope you are all doing good today and able to beat the heat on this very hot day. I have this really old laptop HP Pavillion dv6000. Originally it came with Windows Vista installed back when Windows Vista was first released but eventually I upgraded the laptop to Windows 7. Everything was fine and working until recently where the laptop has no sound. I try to install the sound driver from the HP website and it says "driver installation failed: could not find the device for this driver." No matter what I do I cannot get sound on this laptop. If I go to YouTube and watch a video the video plays just fine but with no sound. When I click on the sound icon next to the time on the desktop bar a window pops up that says "troubleshooting has completed" Problems found: "Hardware changes might not have been detected." I am not sure what is up with this or how to fix it but any help is appreciated thanks.

Answer:It says "driver installation failed could not find the device for this driver"

A Vista laptop likely doesn't have Win7 drivers written...try re-installing the originals from the Driver CD and reboot...Plus it's likely you are trying nVidia or AMD drivers gettin it to work which is a no-no on a laptop....

Windows says device driver installation failed for hp laserjet 1012. This despite printer working correctly. Every time on reboot I get this message. How do I stop windows from trying to install driver for a working device???

Answer:Windows says device driver installation failed

You have to reinstall your printer drivers or you're probably going to continue to get the error. If you are unsure how to go about updating your device drivers for the printer, I would suggest you start here:

I have a Yiynova tablet monitor and its been working fine for about a month. I recently tried to download the beta version of a NVIDIA GeForce update (bad idea) and had to reinstall a previous version. After that, things started to go south for my tablet.

I uninstalled and reinstalled the tablet driver, and tried to plug it in a different USB port and it came up with the same message.

Is there a step that I'm missing?

I have dual screen setup, and that's working fine, but the driver that senses the pen just isn't installing, even though I installed the driver program.

I appreciate any ideas on how to fix this.

Answer:Yiynova tablet monitor "device driver failed to install"

The problem wasn't solved, but I believed I narrowed down the problem. The driver doesn't seem to fully install.

Greetings all.

I monitor installation of apps with Systrace and Comodo Programs Manager. Using the latter, which includes the ability to uninstall Drivers, I've encountered a disastrous problem:
Specs:
Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop
Intel 2 x 2.0GHz, 8GB DDR2, 320GB 7200 HDD (20+GB free)
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit, fully patched, updated and maintained
Norton IS 2012, Malwarebytes, Mamutu, Windows Firewall (regularly run Kaspersky, ESET, etc., scanners offline. No malware.)
Have 350+ third-party apps installed for reference, testing and troubleshooting others' computers.

Problem: Using Comodo Programs Manager (CPM) I uninstalled Windows Mobile 2003 Device Driver which required a reboot to complete and, now, I cannot boot the system. The Windows logon screen appears, a message displays, saying CPM's "Force delete jobs completing...". The system freezes there with a black screen, the mouse cursor responds but there is no other activity. Even the LED showing HDD activity ceases.

Attempted solutions:
-- Safe Mode(s), Last Known Good Config, etc., Startup Repair, (System Restore has been disabled.) To make matters worse, I carelessly began to run Windws 7 installation repair as though it was XP. Before I caught the mistake and cancelled, 7 had already begun to copy files. Now I have the SystemRoot as "windows\windows".

Hello,
I've been experiencing multiple bluescreens daily and what's odd about them is they occur randomly while using many programs; however, I have noticed that they occur more frequently directly after opening a new tab, loading a new site or running a game (StarCraft II).
Looking through Event Viewer. I see a list of warnings and errors immediately prior to the BSOD. In chronological order:

So I have been having trouble with my Bluetooth USB adapter BTD-400 all day by Kinivo, and It would not install drivers at all, it would say access is denied. I uninstalled bcm20702 and then located it again, the drivers sort of installed after that. Now the option to add a bluetooth device is there after I installed the proper software, but I cannot add the driver for the bluetooth peripheral device part. I just get Drivers were found for bluetooth remote controller but had an issue installing "access denied". (I select the right part of the cd where the drivers are). On device manager there is bluetooth radios. under it is Broadcom bcm20702 bluetooth USB 4.0 device. As well as Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator. those two have drivers. My cellphone can find and attempt to pair with my pc, it gives the passcode, but nothing shows up on my pc. as well as my pc cannot find any bluetooth devises such as my bluetooth headphones, and the cellphone that locates the pc. And I am on Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. any help would be greatly appreciated. Also the bluetooth device worked perfectly on my bros computer.

We used to have "stereo mix" option that enabled streaming audio recording without having to have the audio playing through the speakers. How do I do that now? What replaces that capability? Who makes my sound card? Why is that not readily available somewhere in Dell land? I can't believe forum searching found pretty much nothing on this.

Answer:Latitude E6530 Windows 10 no "stereo mix" option for sound input device, only "high definition audio device" with Microsoft driver and unknown manufacturer.

aj_chicagoWho makes my sound card?
Hello. The audio chip manufacturer was IDT.
aj_chicagoWhat replaces that capability?
IDT doesn't have "stereo mix", so I'm not sure how you used to have it on the E6530. IDT has an equivalent capability that it calls Rec.Playback. That can be found in the list of recording devices, after the IDT driver is installed.
aj_chicagoHow do I do that now?
Dell doesn't support audio on an E6530 that has had Win10 installed. The IDT company went out of the consumer audio business long before there was a Win10 OS, so there is no Win10 IDT driver for that model. Your computer is currently using the Windows native audio driver, which, as you say, does not support a stereo mix kind of feature.
You should be able to install the IDT driver for Win7 by installing with compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  [There are two "formats" on the driver's page. Scroll down to the 2nd one, named "Hard Drive" format, and download that one, not the 1st one named "Windows Update Package".]2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the dri... Read more

Hi, I'm trying to reinstall my sister's scanner driver because XP has decided that it's not there any more. This happens occasionally and usually reinstalling the driver fixes it (I think that's what I did last time), but this time i just can't get it to work.

If i unplug the USB cable then plug it in again, it comes up with a message saying that the device has malfunctioned and it doesn't recognize it. I have the driver CD but windows always manages to install it as "Unknown device" before i can tell it to search the CD. I've tried telling it to reinstall the driver from the CD but it says that there are "no better matches for this device". I've also tried uninstalling the program form the CD and reinstalling it then restarting the pc but that didn't help either. I tried plugging it into another USB port (as suggested by Windows Help Center) but that still didn't work.

It's not often that something like this gets me in a circle and scratching my head but I'm really starting to run out of ideas.

Any help would be very appreciated, i just want to get this thing running again

Hi,
I sporadically gets the "USB Device Not Recognized Device Descriptor Request Failed"; however, while I have 6 USB devices connected, none of them seem to be the cause of the error. When I use devmgmt.msc to get the Hardware Ids, the value is simply "USB\DEVICE_DESCRIPTOR_FAILURE". I use TARGET software to control two joysticks and a rudder. (Besides these three USB devices I have a keyboard, a mouse and a TrackIR 5). In some instances everything works even though I got the error but in others instances none of the joysticks are working as expected. Sometimes restarting the computer helps or uninstalling the "mystic" USB device, however the problem always reappear and I would really like to get rid of it permanently.
Anyone got some idea what could be causing this?
I have updated all drivers but it did not help.
Thanks,
Klaus

I have two issues, which I think are related. In the Device Manager, it shows under USB Controllers "Unknown device". "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)"

I tried updating the driver, but the driver was correct.

I tried disabling the device.

I uninstalled the device. Windows reinstalled it at next boot, but the problem reappeared.

There is no Imaging Devices in the Device Manager.

At the same time, my webcam failed to open. Message "Webcamera initialization failed."

I downloaded the correct webcam program from Toshiba, installed it, but same result.

This all started when I uninstalled and reinstalled Skype. I have tried uninstalling it again, but still no webcam.

The webcam is enabled in the BIOS.

I really do not want to reinstall Windows.

Mods, if you feel that this thread is more of a "Windows" issue, please feel free to move this thread.

Here last year I did my second build because I was having "boot" issues. Wasn't certain what exactly the problem was at the time. But something some how screwed up the boot sequence in my system, and where everything was pretty much "outdated." I just went ahead and did another build.

Though, since then I've been pondering around with the thought of using a SATA to IDE adapter so that I can retrieve what ever salvageable data I can from one of the two HDD's that was in my last build. So I finally broke down and ordered a couple different one's earlier this week.

Unfortunately, I've been running in to some problem(s) when I try to launch with the IDE in place.

Upon initial launching, the boot sequence seem to take some time longer than it normally does with out the IDE HDD in place. Though after a 15-20sec lapse I'll get an error screen displaying an windows error code of "0xc000000e" with a prompt message below stating "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible"

I searched all over online to see what that error code represents, only to get "pages after pages" of sites with each site telling me something different.

I have no intentions of using this as a third HDD in my system. I just want to retrieve select data from it.

Hello,
First let me tell you about my system.   This is an Inspiron
E1705/9400 laptop with the T7400 Core 2 Duo processor running at 2.16
GHZ.   It has 2 GB of RAM and a brand new 500GB Hitachi Travelstar hard
drive (7200 RPM).   It also has the GeForce Go 7900 GS video card.   
It previously had Windows XP Professional (32 bit) and worked fine.  
But, I have three computers in my home and home office and would like
them all to work better together on my wired home network, so I am
upgrading all three to Windows 7.   My two desktops (one is Dimension
XPS 420 and the other is Dimension XPS 430) seem like they will be no
problem to upgrade to Windows 7.   But, this laptop was not listed on
Dell's Windows 7 Compatibility List.   However, the Windows 7 Upgrade
Advisor that I downloaded and ran seemed to say that it was OK to do a
clean install of 32 bit Windows 7 and it only had a few minor concerns,
where it said to check for updated drivers from the manufacturer.   The
laptop originally came with a 100GB hard drive.   For my use, that is
getting very small, so I decided to get the same exact 7200 RPM drive
in the 500 GB size.   This will allow me to do a clean install of the
32 bit Windows 7 OS on the new hard drive and not have to wipe the old
drive to do it.   I can just hold onto the old HD and stick it back in

I know there are a handful of threads with the above error message and code, but I have yet to see a thread with what was my reason for the error code. I wanted to pass on what I discovered and how I fixed it.

I started with a standard Windows 7 Pro install joined to a domain. This machine has restricted Internet access so I downloaded the ISO on another machine, burned it to media and ran the upgrade on the test machine from within Windows. The machine passed all of the checks and tests and reported no issues. It would get to the first "Installing" screen, display 0% and then almost immediately give me the pop-up "Something Happened: Install Failed"

I ran it as administrator, I did a Clean Boot, I uninstalled all of the AV/Malware/security type stuff. Nothing worked. I finally found the setuperr.log in C:\$Windows.~BT\Sources\Panther. Found several error lines and the code was always 80070005. I found a line where the installer had a problem copying install.esd. I cleared out the $Windows.~BT in case there was file corruption in the directory somewhere and tried again - no change. Finally, I decided to create a USB install media and viola! The install completed. And I used the same ISO to make the USB that I had used to make the DVD.

I've read a few other threads where people had problems with the ISO. So the moral of the story is if you need to use install media, use the USB installer.

I just reformatted my Gateway NV54 laptop with windows Vista on it.
My sound is working fine but my microphone is not working at all. I have tried both the inbuilt mic and an external one.
I downloaded the latest audio driver from http://support.gateway.com/product/default.aspx?modelId=2376 which is the conexant 4.98.9.0. (x84)

When I run the driver setup it just says "Driver installation failed: Could not find the device for this driver."
I am confused because as far as I know because my sound is working that means my audio driver working?

That error message suggests to me that you're trying to install the wrong driver for that sound device.
Please double-check on the Gateway website, there may be a choice of two or more audio drivers for that model, depending on what hardware was available at the factory when your laptop was assembled.

If there is a choice, you may have downloaded the wrong one or selected a laptop model which is not exactly the same as yours.

Hi there!
I'm in a desperate need of help.
This is the situation (sorry for my bad English as always...).
Yesterday I left my PC running with a download in progress through MiPony.I told the program MiPony (for the first time) to shut down the PC at the end of the download.Until then the PC had no problem.Before going to bed I checked the PC and I saw that it was offThis morning I turned on the PC and I glimpsed a sign that it was starting a scan (the only letter I saw was I:\) but I could not stop it.The PC is turned on regularly. Only half an hour later I found out that an entire 3TB HDD in 4 partitions had disappearedI did some search and found this error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ROOT\PARAGONBLOCKDEVICE\0000.I tried to reboot but same situation (no scan and normal situation) but NO drive.I checked the event log (attached) and I see the problem started after 4 different event regarding my network connection (It's a week that I have to reset the modem \ router several times a day)

I am seeing several of these Warnings in the Event Viewer, Windows System logs. These are Event ID 219, Source Kernel-PnP.

That said, I am not experiencing any crashes, freezes, BSODs, and everything on my PC seems to be functional. So perhaps I can safely ignore these warnings, but I prefer to get to the bottom of something in case it will lead to problems in the future.

I have done some online research on this event, and none of the suggested fixes seem applicable to me. I have been vigilant in keeping all drivers on my machine up to date. I've checked, and there don't seem to be any newer drivers available for any of my hardware. I also have the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service set to "automatic" startup.

The details of this event are below.

Any suggested action to remedy my problem? Thanks!

Answer:The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device ROOT\WPD\0000?

Go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc, right click the devmgmt results and Run As Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags? If so, these devices need drivers installed. Usually your video card driver.

I tried to update my older Radeon ATI 5450 GPU via windows update...

I received the message from windows update, and showed it failed update with the 0x800706be

However when I go to device manager and check the details of the installed driver it clearly shows the new updated version? So I wonder which is correct the device manager showing the new version of the driver or windows update?

Answer:Failed Update 0x800706be driver...but device mgr shows updated driver?

You can identify the problem using Device Manager, which you can access by:
Opening the Control Panel Window
Selecting and double-clicking System
Clicking Device Manager
In Device Manager check if there is an exclamation point, a yellow triangle, or a question mark against your Dell device. If there is, there is a problem with your Dell device.

Answer:Failed installation of audio driver for Windows XP. Lenovo G560. Driver --> (Conexant Cx20585)

Hi Jose_Galdos,
 
 
That's listed as the Conexant Pebble High Definition Smart Audio.
Seeing as how it's HD sound, I think you'll need to load the Microsoft UAA driver first to get it running under XP.
 
Is  this the driver that you tried to install?

Hi I've got a DVR that I have (up until now) been able to access my recordings on using my PC (windows 7). The PC and the DVR are in the same room, along with the router. All I needed to do was enter the IP address of the DVR in to firefox/chrome etc and I had access to all my recordings. I could do this either via wi-fi or ethernet cable.

Now however for no reason, whenever I enter the IP address I get the error "connection failed". Why is this happening? So far I've tried the following with no success;
- Cleared the IP address from cookies and cache
- Created a new user on my Windows 7 PC and tried to access the IP address.
- Reset the DVR so it forgets the wi-fi settings and re-connected it to the wifi/ ethernet.
- Reset the DVR and router so that the end digit on the IP address changes.
- Used different browsers.
- Checked network and shared devices in control panel to see if the DVR is visible. It is there but I dont know which of the options (if any) I should troubleshoot. When I right click I get a MAC address, unique identifier and IP address. Theres nothing in there that can be changed.

I'm running out of solutions and I dont understand why suddenly the network/ DVR will not connect. Any ideas?

I am unable to install iTunes on Windows 7 on a Dell Optiplex 780. It always errors out as "apple mobile device service failed to start" and then installation always rolls back. One result told me to remove all apple software on my computer, but I do not have any apple software installed, it always fails to install. a few websites mentioned to make sure that my iPod is not plugged into the computer when installing, I unplugged it, it made no difference. and there were websites telling me to just manually start the service, but every time I try I get a "unable to start service. the service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion" which pops up immediately. I also tried doing an SFC /scannow but it says "there are no integrity violations"

I am at a loss here. I even tried various alternatives to iTunes which all give errors of their own

Any ideas?

Answer:"apple mobile device service failed to start"

Hello mate now I don't have a an answer but my partner has a very similar problem on her laptop - an annoying message t say that Apple Push has stopped.

It did get a little better by running these
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2 by better I mean it got less frequent.

To be honest I am not an Apple fan and it seems to me it clutters everything up

Hi. This my first time posting here, but I've visited these forums on several occasions in the past to solve various problems, so hopefully someone will be able to help with mine.

My parents and I moved into a new house on the 25th of April, and I got my desktop computer hooked up a few days later. When I started it up, it (re)installed a few drivers (the connected devices were my mouse, keyboard and HDTV that I also use as a monitor), and I was prompted to restart the computer to finish installing them. Because our internet connection wasn't set up until the 10th of May, I only used my desktop a few minutes a week to transfer pictures I'd saved on my laptop while visiting relatives. Ever since I hooked my desktop up in the new house, I've noticed that the "device failed to connect" sound randomly plays after automatically logging into Windows. I usually only need to start my computer up once a day, sometimes restarting to finish installing a program or update. The problem usually occurs once every four or five start-ups, and the sound only plays once each time.

When I started using my computer, I had some trouble double-clicking with my left mouse button for a few days or so, but it works fine now. I've tested the connection of all my devices, and they appear to be as tight as they can be. The Device Manager doesn't show any problems, except when I set it to show hidden devices, but I think that's because the mouse and keyboard I'm currently using aren't the same... Read more

Answer:"Device failed to connect" sound plays randomly

Hello ThisIsMadness91. Welcome to the forum.

There is not enough to go on there. There are some good clues though.
That "USBSTOR#DISK...." smells like a USB connected disk drive. Is there one connected? Was there one ever connected (at the old house)?

What would help is a complete description of the old and new setup - right down to the length of the cables used to connect devices to the PC. We are looking for any differences here.

You say you are using a new keyboard and mouse. It would be good to know what the old and new devices are (brand & model #). Were any of these installed with drivers? (keyboard driver or mouse driver).

Just installed Avira antivirus and rebooted to complete the installation. I am getting the error "Boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible" whenever I attempt to boot. I have tried using the Windows 7 disc to repair but it does not work as it runs for a few seconds then instructs me to reboot.

The hard drive was initially not appearing but luckily I can now access all my files from this OS, however I would really like to gain access to my main OS again. I have also reset the CMOS but it hasn't changed anything.

Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you. Sorry if I posted this in the wrong section.

My PC started BSOD-ing a few days ago and now does it every few hours.

It starts with this error:

Then moves on to:

Then:

Then:

The print spooler failed to regenerate the printer driver information for driver Microsoft XPS Document Writer for environment Windows x64. Win32 system error code 1797 (0x705). This can occur after an operating system upgrade or because of data loss on the hard drive.

Hi,

Since the 11/18/2012 event viewer (Event ID 219, Task Category 212) has been posting a warning:

The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN (followed by name of USB device)

It only occurs on start up if I have a USB memory device plugged into a USB port. The USB memory device functions perfectly and the error never occurs when I plug in and out a memory device after boot up.

The error only occurs for memory devices like memory sticks, external USB hard drive does not cause this error.

Checking back to around the 11/18/2012 I see nothing that I have changed/installed that might indicate something that has caused this. No other Windows 7 failures or issues.

Booting a second hard drive with windows 7 on the same system (I have this second installation for testing faults etc), the issue does NOT occur.

From checking forums and searching I have found a few others with this issue and a few articles on its cause

WUDFRd failed to load for the device

Event ID 219 is logged after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

I was just curious as to why it would suddenly start occurring after a particular date when as far as I can tell I have not made any changes to anything around this date.

Also I wondered if there was a fix to stop this, other than removing a memory stick before boot up!

Any thoughts?

Answer:The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error

I just started getting this exact same error message logged in Event Viewer when I plug a USB stick into a USB port. It happens with two different sticks from two different manufactures, but it does not happen every time I plug them in. It seems that it may mostly happen the first time I plug a stick in after I have booted up my PC.

Have you been able to find a solution to get these error codes to stop logging?

This has been a problem for over a year now. 140+ identical PCs running identical images, with identical keyboards. Some have the problem, some do not, and it's incredibly unpredictable.

PCs are HP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF running Windows 7 x64 Professional.

Hello,

Last night i was trying to update my AMD SATA AHCI Controller driver, but i shouldn't do while being sleepy....

My hand moved before my brain realised...I uninstalled the device BUT i also checked the option for deleting the drivers.

Now, i get the error while booting :

0xc000000e

The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible


What i realise is that windows are trying to find the device needed to boot ( stored on boot info) , but device is not there.

Ι already searched the forum for similar problems and already tried to do a Startup Repair from Windows Installation Disc repair menu (3 consequent times as written), with no result.

No restore points either.

Is there any way to manually fix this or my only path is a repair install ? All my data are safely backed-up.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Hi all
I have a Toshiba Satellite M70-131 (Model No. PSM70E-01500RAR , Serial No. 16185917K)
I am using windows XP Professional.
I am unable install a driver fo the below mentioned PCI device which is listed as follows

"PCI BUS 6 -DEVICE 4 -FUNCTION 4"

In Device manager one question mark "?" coming with a description "PCI DEVICE"

I have already installed Modem, wireless Lan, display sound and IEEE1394

So please help me how to solve this. I need the answer for the following queries

1) This PCI card is using for which device?
2) How can i find out the exact driver software
3) Why the device name (eg: modem,) is not displaying
4) How to find out which device i am missing to install

your immediate support is highly appreciated

Regards
PETER

Answer:Satellite M70-131: PCI BUS 6 -DEVICE 4 -FUNCTION 4, driver required

Hello Peter

I really do not know what are you missing but fact is that on Toshiba download page you can find ?Installations Instructions? document. All you must do is to install all stuff listed there and in exact listed order. After doing this everything should work well.

I have M70-159 and using the same document I have installed WXP successfully.

BTW: I am not 100% sure but maybe you are missing driver for 5 in 1 card reader (cardbus driver).

I have had this problem numerous times in the past where the installation proceeds then ends with the messages:

During the installation of the device.
The system cannot find the file specified
and it goes into a detection loop

HERE is the solution:

Windows 2000/XP has a bug that it cannot properly detect new hardware by *.inf files, if the RunOnce registry key is missing for the following location:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

This key is often used by installers to execute post-reboot programs, but sometimes they accidentally delete this key.

IMPORTANT: This article contains information about modifying the registry. Make sure that you understand how to backup and restore the registry, in case a problem occurs. Please read the linked Microsoft Knowledge Base article prior to editing the registry.
Go to Start » Run and enter "regedit."

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

With CurrentVersion Highlighted, go to the Edit menu and select New » Key

Name the key RunOnce, leaving everything else about the key alone.

The RunOnce key should now exist underneath the CurrentVersion key.
Once the key exists, Windows 2000/XP stops redetecting the Hardware
 

Answer:"cannot find the file specified" "during the installation of the device."

I've spent hours trying to do a repair install of Windows 10 on a VM Ware Fusion 8.5 virtual machine. The host machine is an iMac. The reason I'm doing a repair install is because some system files are corrupted and "sfc /scannow" only gets about halfway before it says it couldn't load some resources then quits.

The "Windows 10 installation has failed" message appears not long after starting the installation when it says about 6%.

I've attached a screenshot of the failure message as well as disk manager and the Panther folder which is curiously unpopulated (there's nothing in the two folders shown above). The Panther folder doesn't contain any error logs. However, on a previous installation attempt, I looked at an error log and it showed that it was not able to copy something from the installation disc to a location on C:/windows.

I have installed Windows 10 without problem on a number of other machines, but I'm stuck here on this one. By the way, no external drives or devices are attached to the machine (other than the apple bluetooth trackpad and keyboard which have never been a problem on other virtual machines). I've tried doing this repair install from the DVD drive as well as by copying the .iso image to the desktop and mounting it in file explorer. The result is the same.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Good morning,
I have a Dell Inspiron 32 bit machine that I am trying to upgrade (one of about 10) from Windows 7 Enterprise 32 bit to Windows 10 Enterprise 32 bit. All of the Windows Updates have been installed and every time I try to upgrade to Windows 10 I get the "Something happened, Windows 10 installation has failed". My understanding is this computer is also an upgrade from Windows XP and not a fresh install of Windows 7.
I have tried the steps outlined in here
FIX: Something Happened - Windows 10 Installation Has Failed : Windows10

I have also tried this through safe mode. It has not fixed the problem.
I have been working through this as a possible solution
https://www.tenforums.com/installati...d-error-3.html

However, when I go through the steps disk 0 (the only one in the system) does not have a FAT32 volume. Should one exist?

I have been looking around on the machine for the Windows 10 upgrade log files and have not found them to figure out what error I am actually hitting.

Where do I find the log files?

Answer:Win Upgrade - "Something happened, Windows 10 installation has failed"

I had this error on upgrading my Dell Inspiron - see my post here to see if you have the same symptoms https://www.tenforums.com/installati...x80004005.html

I've since clean installed W10 on the same laptop.

Answer:"Device Failed to Connect" sound notification

You mean you get the "device failed to connect" sound everytime you open the Desktop?

Right-click the Desktop, Personalize and go to Sounds, and set the Sound Scheme to Windows Default which is at the bottom of the drop down list and click, OK. Re-start the computer and see if the sound persists.

You may also type msconfig on the Start Menu. Go to Startup and check if any malicious programs are checked in there that might be causing this sound..

Hi there! I hope you can help since I am clueless about this! I keep getting that error message "failed to initialize video device" when I try to play Mech3- pirates moon. I have no idea when the problem began or what caused it (ie deleted file or something). I updated my ATI Radeon 7200 last night to the latest version. I used to be able to play these games just fine.
I have win98 version , pentium III450 mhz, 385 mg, 4.30 gb free space. my cdrw is a philips 800 series. the weird thing about that is I can't find a single file for it! it seems to work fine thought since I uninstalled adaptec cd creator and re-installed it last night using it. I did print out a "system summary" and although I don't understand most of it, it does say that "could not find d3dhalf.dll" and "could not get information for "d3ddim.dll!" I hope all this helps you figure out what's goin on. thanx for any help you can provide.

Change the 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-Mode Driver Framework' from 'Manual' to 'Automatic'.

Also the error from events.

Driver environment:

I have the associated transceiver that should work for both (if installed)

This problem started when my Microsoft wireless mouse driver was updated to version 1.0.102.0 (dated 3/16/2016).
This driver update also appears to be responsible for a few other device errors as well:

I believe this new driver assumes you have a wireless keyboard (without checking) and just tries to load a driver for it.

My temporary fix is/was to rollback the driver to the previous Microsoft version 10.0.10586.0 (dated 6/21/2006):

At Windows 10 startup this Warning appears in my Event Log as Event ID: 219.

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{a1c931b2-3b00-11e5-9c14-806e6f6e6963}#0000000008100000.

I know why this happens. The device in the message is an internal SATA AHCI hard drive. All AHCI drives, even internal ones, are considered removal or hot swapable. It even causes the safely remove icon to appear sort of like it was a USB drive. It happened on Windows 8.x. Don't remember if it happened on Windows 7. I can't make any changes in my BIOS to make it not hot swapable as there is no option for this drive.

The fix to get rid of the message in W8 was to modify the Service 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework' Changing the Startup type from Manual to Automatic fixed the problem. However, on Windows 10 this method does not work.

I can't disable the Service as it's needed for other devices. Just wondering if anyone found a nice clean way to get rid of the warning message like in W8?

Since I purchased the Win 8 Pro Upgrade online from Microsoft on Jan 20th, Ive been trying to get in to install. I have Windows 7 Ultimate on a HP laptop. I've had the Microsoft "live help agents" or whoever remotely access/control my pc 3 times already. I knew as much or more than 2 of them did, after several hours with each of them ultimately coming up with no solution and/or me having to end the remote session to go to work or to bed. The third agent was sincere in wanting to get this fixed for me, and she was much more knowledgeable about the everything involved. But once again, after almost 2 hours with her, we didn't get anything fixed and I had to go to work.
I'm almost ready to give up and get Microsoft to put the money back on my Visa...but I still have (some) hope! And after 20 yrs with Windows/Microsoft, this is my first bad experience. And it is BAD.

The computer detected the hard drive in BIOS. I also connected the hard drive to another machine externally and here's the partition info:

12GB Healthy (Recovery Partition)
102MB NTFS, System Reserved, Healthy (Active, Primary Partition)
97.67GB NTFS, Acer, Healthy (Logical Drive)

How do I get this laptop to boot up with the new hard drive?

Answer:"No Bootable Device" error after win 7 installation on new hard drive

did you check your bios and make sure the new harddrive is set to the first device to boot from?

I've spent hours trying to do a repair install of Windows 10 following the instructions on TenForums. The machine is running Windows 10 Home x64 1607. The reason I'm doing a repair install is because some system files are corrupted. I've tried running "sfc /scannow" in safe mode and it wasn't able to fix everything. Tried using DISM as well.

The "Windows 10 installation has failed" message appears not long after starting the installation when it says about 6%.

I've attached a screenshot of the failure message as well as disk manager and the Panther folder which is curiously unpopulated (there's nothing in the two folders shown above). The Panther folder doesn't contain any error logs. However, on a previous installation attempt, I looked at an error log and it showed that it was not able to copy something from the installation disc to a location on C:/windows.

I have installed Windows 10 without problem on a number of other machines, but I'm stuck here on this one. By the way, no external drives or devices are attached to the machine. I've run chkdsk on the machine and the drive appears to be ok. I've tried doing this repair install from the DVD drive as well as by copying the .iso image to the desktop and mounting it in file explorer. The result is the same.

Thanks in advance for any ideas!

Hello forum,

I have a windows 8 laptop and a linux desktop, both connected to the same screen using hdmi - since my screen has only 1 HDMI input, I use an HDMI splitter.

Every time I move from the linux to the windows 8 laptop (using a HDMI mini remote control), I get a message from windows saying that in order to apply these changes I need to reboot.

Note that I also use the same wireless keyboard and mouse for both computers - each time I change from one computer to the other, I unplug the USB that controls them and plug it in the computer I will use.

I think that the problem is related to the HDMI, not the keyboard/mouse usb - but I am not sure.

Needless to say that it is very annoying and I cant keep restarting the LT each time I move from one to the other.

I checked event viewer to see what causes this and these are the relevant messages:

1 - Device 'USB\VID_045E&PID_0745&MI_01\7&1a5cec9a&0&0001' requires installation.
Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-PnPConfig/Configuration
Kernel-PnPConfig
Event id: 3

2 - A reboot is required to complete device installation of device 'USB\VID_045E&PID_0745&MI_01\7&1a5cec9a&0&0001'
Microsoft-Windows-UserPnp/DeviceInstall
UserPnp
Event id: 8000

Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this, make it stop requesting reboots?

Many thanks in advance,

linuxgirl

Answer:"A reboot is required to complete device installation"

Addition - I just plugged and unplugged the usb that controls the wireless keyboard and mouse (without moving to the other computer) and got the same request as above - so I think I was wrong and the plugging and unplugging of the wireless usb causes windows to try to "reinstall and restart" - question is why does it do that and how do I solve it? I tried to find pnp configurations that could be changed, but didn't find anything.

Thanks again!

Hi folks,I'm not the most computer literate person so I will try to be as accurate as possible!Had my laptop refitted with Windows XP as the OS as opposed to Ubuntu which was on before. Only problem is no sound. No audio driver is installed. I went to the Fujitsu Siemens website (my brand of laptop) to download a new one. Only problem is when I run the setup it says "Driver installation failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver."I've tried running a driverchecker thing but it doesn't detect that the audio driver is absent (or just not working, not sure!) My computer is a Fujitsu Siemens, on the bottom is says Amilo Pro V3515. Not sure if you might need more information to help!Thank you ever so much, am a bit frustrated :)

My laptop is a Compaq Presario CQ50. I ran a program called Speccy which listed my Audio card as Conexant High Definition SmartAudio 221 Intel(R) High Definition Audio HDMI I did a search at HP website and it found the current driver. When I installed it, it gave the following error msg.

---------------------------
ERROR
---------------------------
Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the MEDIA device for this driver.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

Would appreciate advice on how to update my driver. I don't really know if a new driver will help, but my sound seems to stutter once in a while and I was hoping a new driver would fix this.

Thanks

Hi I have an Asus G74Sx and here are my specs: Windows 2.6.1.7601 (Service Pack 1) CPU TYPE: Intel® Core™ i7-2630QM CPU @ 2.00GHz CPU SPEED: 2.03 GHz SYSTEM MEMORY: 8.57 GB VIDEO CARD MODEL: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560M VIDEO CARD MEMORY: 4.26 GB VIDEO CARD DRIVER: nvd3dum.dll DESKTOP RESOLUTION: 1600x900 HARD DISK SIZE:

Now my problem is whenever I boot up my computer, and it tries to load windows, the screen starts getting crazy green lines (http://imgur.com/gbVtBqP) goes black, and eventually a blue screen pops up (http://imgur.com/O8IMBJg).

Now it should be known, I have just received my computer back from Asus repair where I RMAd it because the motherboard had to be replaced because it was surged and no longer allowing it to charge. We also replaced the hard drive disk. The time between it stopped charging and I sent it and got it back repaired was 28 weeks. I never had this problem prior to the motherboard busting, and have had it since getting it back. When it first happened, I thought it was because since I had gotten it back I had not updated my drivers (all my data had been erased), so I updated to the most recent version, and for the most part the problem was fixed, until all of a sudden it started again.

The problem first started occurring while playing games, the computer would get the green lines above, completely freeze and have to be restarted. Then it started to get the green lines, black out, and come back giving a message saying "the display ... Read more

"Failed to access NetBT driver"

Well after looking around for an answer to this same problem I came across your forums which offered a whole bunch of alternatives which didn't work for me (in another closed thread).
Just letting you know the answer for me in the end for this problem was that it was a virus living in:

C:\windows\system32 called mssnger.exe

The virus is set as being hidden so you'll need to enable the viewing of hidden files to see it.

Use a program like hijackthis from www.merijn.org to remove the dodgy reg key. (It'll contain the word mssnger.exe)
And use something like moveonboot to set the file for deletion on next startup if you are having problems deleting it.

Hope this helps anyone who is having the same problem with NetBT.

Hi I have an emachine pc Model number (EMACHINES W5233) with Vista service pack 2. Im trying to install a Verizon Novatel 4G LTE usb551L modem and I get this error Driver Installation Failed:1603. then It tries to install VZAccess software and It says Error 2738 could not access VBScript Runtime for custom action. I have spent hours trying to get this installed, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Answer:Driver Installation Failed 1603

I may be rusty but lets see.

Make sure you have complete administrative rights, right click on driver install file and click "Run as admin"

Make sure User account control is turned off or is in lowest security mode for now.

Have you tried installing in safe mode?

Where are you attempting to install this driver from, a disk or from the internet?

It is possible to run a windows update and allow it to attempt and find a update.

Also try connecting the modem first VIA USB or ethernet to see if windows vista automatically configures it for you.

Hi all

I am having repeatedly problems with my audio since i've installed windows 10. After searching for solution the only method that works is to run sfc /scannow and restart.
But after I'm restarting I have no sound again.
I'm with Lenovo e420s cto4401.

tried to update drivers but they don't have win10 version.

any ideas ?
