Preferred Solution: Cannot install Win7-no signed device drivers were found.

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.)

This is going to be difficult since I am the middle man here, but here it goes.

A few months ago I sent my friend a Windows 7 DVD for his new computer that he built, and everything went fine. Earlier this week he was building another one, using the same HDD and disk and he kept getting errors that are still unresolved. He formatted his old HDD and still didnt work, and also got a new 320 GB hdd and same problems. He cant even get Ubuntu to install. ive searched for a few hours and couldn't find a similar problem or solution. The exact error message is "No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains all the correct drivers and then click ok." Sometimes he got an error 0x8030001, not quite sure what he did to get that. Anybody have any idea about what to do?

Hi there,

As per the title:
I have the samsung NVME driver on a USB stick, the Win7 installer can see the stick and the other driver subfolders on the stick (nvme driver on root).
But, the installer finds nothing on the stick on a scan, and displays no driver on a manual search, and recognises no drivers if i simply point it at the stick an accept.

I simply get a error message from the "Load Driver" popup:
"No signed device drivers were found. Make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."
USB drive is formatted as vFAT (32?).
Tried both EUFI and normal boot from DVD drive.

Suggestions?

i need help...bad...I picked up a copy of windows 8.1 yesterday (hoping to upgrade it to 10 once i got it. I also already had windows 7 on the computer, so i started the setup from the desktop) it did its thing. I typed in the product key and continued through the process. Then i got to the 'where do you want windows to install?' tab and it lets me pick which hard drive to install windows on. Thats where the problem occured, I can not for the life of me figure this out. I've got a friend who know's a ton about this stuff and i was on the phone with him for at least 2 hours last night. we cant figure it out, I've downloaded the drivers on a flash drive and it wont open. I have the motherboards CD in and it doesn't help. there are no .exe files. and I have spent hours trying to get it to work and it doesn't.

Answer:'No signed device drivers were found'

Hello Peoplearenuts Welcome to the Forums  
I don't want to say this but you didn't need to buy win8.1 to get 10; you can install windows 10 for free if you have 7.
But since you bought it​​ lets work on it.

So the first thing to do is not to do a clean install; you want to upgrade the PC threw the desktop
it will automatically assign the HDD based on what your upgrading.
 
Please don't fell bad about this we all make mistakes; believe me I have made some big ones
Also I have had that problem too so this should help you out

Hello, I've read a few of the other posts but haven't been able to get it to work on mine yet. I'm getting the "no signed drivers were found" error when trying to install windows 7 64 bit on my new build. I don't have an old one to format the hard drive and partition it on. So my question is can I build a partition outside of the install or inside of the install? When I switch to ACHI(AHCI) which every one it is, and I go into advanced installation it gives me the option for new partition but there are 0 MB available to do this with. I've put my comp specs into my profile. Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. When my old desktop crashed I had a working laptop so I has been years since I've had a 2nd desktop to work with.

   Note
Press < ENTER > after every command

Type DISKPART

Type SELECT DISK 0

Type CLEAN


Type CREATE PRIMARY PARTITION
Type SELECT PARTITION 1
Type ACTIVE
Type FORMAT FS=NTFS LABEL="Windows 7" QUICK

Type ASSIGN LETTER=C

Type EXIT

Type EXIT

Then back in the Where to install Windows click on Refresh and you should see

Highlight that and click on next .

Hi,


I've a samsung with some extra samsung features (samsung update plus, speed up manager, recovery system etc.) and they bug me. Therefore I wanna do a clean installation on my laptop but when I boot up on my USB (works fine) I get the following message "No device drivers were found ..." instead of having access to the partition manager.
I've done a lot of research on my problem but haven't come up with any solutions yet. Does anybody out there know what to do?

Btw., I've tried the to boot other laptops with the USB stick and it works like a charm. I read somewhere that the problem could be that my laptop didn't load the SATA drivers, which is needed for the partition manager, that might be the problem but I don't know where to find the drivers though.
Furthermore I've noticed that I can't see my USB drive when I browse for files only C:/ (system disk), D:/ (primary), E:/ (some recovery disk) and X:/ (boot) and that might be the problem I guess!? Strange this that I boot from the USB stick though

Answer:"No device drivers were found ..." when trying a clean Win7 install

Format the USB stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in dropdown menu. Boot under USB, Removable or HD's in one-time BIOS Boot Menu. Set HD to boot first in BIOS setup.

I would first make sure your Samsung Recovery is not set up like in this thread, which is the worst nightmare I've seen here in thousands of successful clean reinstalls. The OEM software didn't work correctly when downloaded from webpage. Samsung claims the apps which work are stored on the Recovery partition which only enables the use of an image user is to save to external or DVD's. However if a small Recov partition is accidentally deleted during reinstall there is no access to this or the Recovery image - ever - and Samsung won't ship Recovery Disks. Apparently the only way to reinstall the Recov partition is if the image is saved to DVD's which will boot and run, but many save it to external instead.

Greetings; my first post.
Had Vista Ultimate; scraped it and loaded Win7 Prof. Awesome OS so far. Installed peripherals, no problem. Printer installed fine, works fine. Wanted to share it on home network. Attempted to load Canon MP970 onto network and rec'd install error with missing driver. Windows found driver at Intel (IPMI & PCI Serial Port), it downloaded but failed to install. I still see the warning icon by Other Devices and cannot identify the devices. I've attached screen shots of the sequence and Intel driver download name. The attachment is in 7-Zip format. What are these devices. How can I update the drivers for these unknown devices? Everything else works fine.

Thank you.
 

Answer:New Win7 Install; Device Manager "Other Devices" drivers not found problem

The fact that W7 had no drivers for the unknown devices during installation is going to be problematic, most likely it means there are no compatible drivers available.

See if this helps

I've been searching for an our or so all over trying to find something that helps me with this problem, but nothing seems to be working.

I have an HP dv6780se Pavillion Laptop.

I put a new hard drive in it to restore and the restore disks are working correctly. It will install windows vista, but then when it starts installing all the bloatware the computer restarts and says OS not found.

So, I figured I'd install windows 7 since I was planning on doing it anyway.

My problem now is that I'm wondering since restore disks only install vista and don't finish the other hp stuff that the drivers aren't getting installed for vista...hence when I try and do a clean install of Win7 it says no drivers found.

Any idea what I can do to get my install going?

Answer:Clean install to Win7, no drivers found?

Im assuming that you have a bootable DVD, so Id suggest formatting your drive with the custom install option, then install windows7. Once you have installed it, be sure to run Windows Update, then image your drive/partition as a precaution..

Hi all, I've been running the RC for around 3 months now and love it. I didn't have any issues when I installed it. I added the drivers for my raid card when the select partition option came up, it installed them and away it went. Now that I'm trying to install the retail version it insists that my drivers are unsigned and that's the end of that. I've tried using the repair system work around to get the drivers loaded; but that option says that the drivers don't match my installed hardware. I'm using the exact same driver I used for the RC, on the same thumb drive in fact. Plus, Promise says they're signed. I know there isn't a problem with the raid card because I'm on the system now. Anybody have any ideas?
Thanks.

Answer:Win7 x64 won't recognize my raid drivers as signed

Well, I got it about an hour after my post so I figured I'd report back in case anyone else has a Promise FastTrak 2650 and runs into the same issue. Even though I hadn't done it while installing the RC, I unplugged everything except for my keyboard and mouse. I switched over to a VGA cable as well. This time instead of pointing the install to the 64 bit drivers I just hit ok and let it look for its self. It loaded the 32 bit drivers, proceeded with the install and then somehow reconfigured its self with the proper drivers once Windows was up and running. As soon as I hit windows update it downloaded the very same x64 driver I was trying to install from my thumb drive and installed it just fine. So now its up and running perfectly. I thought letting it load a 32 bit driver would have hosed the install; but apparently I was wrong.

I have seen some of the threads listed but none have been able to get my nephew's laptop working again. It is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L450D. His hard drive got corrupted and we've lost everything. I am now trying to load windows 7 64 bit on to a brand new hard drive. I keep getting 'No Drives were found. Click load Driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation'.
I then press the "Load Driver" and get up 'To install the Device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files and then click OK.'
When I browse to find the drivers I've downloaded from Toshiba direct on my flash drive, I get "No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers and then click OK'
This is as far as I can go because I do not know how or where to get "signed drivers".

So I have an old laptop running Win7 professional x64 SP1. I downloaded X17-59186.iso and made sure the MD5 and SHA-1 checksums matched which they do.

Properly formatted my USB drive etc. When I boot from USB and choose `install now` however I get the load driver window error:



Also if I try and choose "repair your computer" (at the previous step, rather than trying to install windows) I get an error message saying "This version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of windows you are trying to repair. Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of windows."

This makes it sound like I have the wrong ISO even though in system information it is definitely running win7 Pro x64.

What is most confusing is that if I use this same bootable USB on my other laptop (running win7 home x64) it works fine, neither of these errors occur.

Also I read something about trying USB2.0/3.0 ports, neither will work.

Any help is very much appreciated, thanks!

The audio on my Asus P5E3 DELUXE/WiFi-AP motherboard does not appear to work. Windows 7 says that there is no audio output device installed. As such, when I plug my speakers in I get no sound and the sound icon in the notification area continues to display a red circle with an "x".

The High Definition Audio Controller is installed under Device Manager and appears to be normal. However, it is listed under System Devices. There is no listing for Sound, Video, & Game Controllers (I am not sure if this is applicable to Win7). I have disabled and re-enabled the audio controller. I have uninstalled it and let Windows reinstall it. All to no avail. For what it's worth, the controller appears to be using a standard Microsoft driver.

System info says that no sound devices are installed.

I have verified (multiple times) that onboard audio is enabled in the BIOS. I have tried disabling the audio in the BIOS, booting, into Windows shutting down, and then re-enabling the onboard audio. No go.

I have attempted to reinstall the Soundmax drivers from ASUS. They don't install. I receive an error message saying that the audio driver files do not support my hardware. I am sure that I am trying to install the correct drivers.

There is no software installed that would be interfering with the audio and all services look normal.

Any ideas?

Toshiba is really the best notebook I saw! I had to change my HD because of a hardware failure (disk dead); before this I made a "recovery disk" from Toshiba system. I thought I would have just to boot from this DVD to reinstall all. BIG ERROR!

So I booted fro this DVD, process goes on (about one hour, already a great delay!), BUT a few drivers, especially the wireless one, cannot be installed! I get a message that "Drivers must be signed and so cannot be installed", and am kindly invited to get the "right drivers"!

On the website Toshiba there is no "right driver", I got those that are supposed to be for me, but always receive the same Windows message.

So what to do?!! This "recovery disk" does not even recover the correct drivers? What a great joke !!!! And of course the computer was sold without any DVD!

For six months or so, I've had a problem where my laptop's audio will stop working. The red "X" appears over the volume icon in the system tray and audio will not function whatsoever. Until now, rebooting has been 99% successful at restoring the audio until it eventually fails again. But in the last three days, my normal quick fix no longer does the trick. Apparently my laptop can no longer find the actual Conexant 20672 SmartAudio HD hardware on the motherboard. This is a T520 laptop running Win 7 with SP1. The T520 is roughly six years old, so I realize the hardware's age might be a factor. There are definitely other issues related to its age (general performance sluggishness, inability to wake up from sleep mode, backup no longer works correctly) and I will eventually have to replace the laptop. But in the meantime, solving this persistent audio issue will buy me at least a few more months, so it's worth fixing to me. I've found dozens of threads that suggest reinstalling the device drivers, which of course I have tried several times using the drivers here. The problem: After rebooting, the device manager still doesn't list any playback device ("No audio devices are installed") even with both "Show Disabled Devices" and "Show Disconnected Devices" checked. Similarly, when I run the 8aad14ww.exe device installer, it terminates with an error message ("Driver Installation Failed: Could not find the device for this driver").  Has the hardware itself ac...

Hi,

For the purpose of being as concise as possible, I will go through my situation in builet points. If you want more details or specifications, simply ask and I will provide.

- I have a Lenovo laptop which came with Windows 8.1

- For various reasons, I recently had to do a hard drive erasure, erasing everything - including the recovery partition.

- I then installed Linux.

- Now I am trying to install a fresh copy of Windows 7 using a bootable USB.

- I get stuck on the installation setup. The error message is "Load Driver: No signed drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK."

- I have spent many hours googling and have tried..
* to add the supposed needed drivers as suggested here: boot - Windows 7 install "Load Driver" error, Lenovo laptop - Super User but I am unsure which specific files are meant by "Intel Chipset Driver" and "Intel Management Driver", where specifically to find them, and how specifically to put them in "the root of the bootable USB-device".
* to add USB 3.0 drivers to the USB as suggested here: No Device Drivers were found -Windows 7 Install (from USB) - [Solved] - Windows 7

- The problem still persists however.

I will very much appreciate any help I can get.

Cheers,

tested alot of drivers, all failed to take away the red X, got the message in all my driver installation: "Windows encountered a problem installing the driver software for your device"

asking that question could get you banned....
are you trying to do an upgrade or a clean install?

Hi
i bought a new dell inspiron n 5010 and i have downloaded windows 7 professional(64 bit) from the MSDNAA account and burned the image on the DVD.

In the bios of my laptop i set the sata mode to ahci

That message gives me 3 buttons: ok, cancel and browse, neither of OK and CANCEL would let me through the install, and with browse i have tried to find those missing drivers but without succeed.

Hi, I bought a Medion Akoya E5211 laptop 2 years ago which had Basic Windows Vista pre-installed on it; but I dropped the laptop and the operating system got wiped. I put the recovery disc in the laptop; but the disc does not reinstall Windows. I bought a Basic Windows Vista installation disc; but I am unable to install it.
I have to attempt to install in 'custom' because 'upgrade' has been disabled. I am asked 'where do you want to install Windows?' Though, I am told 'no drives were found'. 'Refresh' does nothing. When I 'load driver', I am asked to 'install the device driver needed to access your hard drive, insert the installation media containing the driver files, and then click OK'; but the installation CD is in the laptop. I think the CD works. It is new and I am asked to type the product key when I first put the disc in the laptop. Anyway, when I click on 'Ok', I am told that 'no device drivers were found'. Nothing changes when I untick 'hide drivers that are not compatible with hardware on this computer'. The screen remains blank. If I 'browse', then a box appears with 'computer', 'CD drive (D:) FRMCFRE-EN-DVD' and 'Boot (X:)' in it. Folders (?) appear when I click 'CD drive' and 'Boot'; but clicking on the folders does not help me progress. I would be grateful for help. Thanks.
PS If I switch on the laptop without putting a CD in it, the following text appears on screen:

Answer:No device drivers found

You appear to have physically broken the harddrive when you dropped it. Or at best the connection cable to it has shook loose.
If it's broken you will have to buy a new harddrive to replace it.
May I suggest if you do not know how to go about this then you take it to a little local shop for them to do and they will also test your harddrive to see if any data can be recovered. It will prob cost about 60 - 80 to repair plus the cost of a new harddrive if needed.

Hey guys.
Im running a compaq v6000
It restarts after the compaq screen loads up with the bios options, and keeps doing that.

I popped in a vista oem cd to reboot but it says:

"!no drivers were found. Click load driver to provide a mass storage driver for installation"
After Loading it says "no device drivers were found. make sure the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK"
When I go into the bios menu (phoenixBIOS (V)f.27) and run a "Primary hard disk self test" it shows that, in the test status: No IDE Device.

I've set the first boot order to my atapi cd/dvd ROM drive.
But no dice.

Helpful hints and suggestions super welcome, thanks in advance.

Answer:No device drivers found

Quote:




PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.




The error in the quote means that the computer could not find the Hard Disk Drive and that it tried to boot from the network cable. If you dropped your laptop you probably have damaged the HDD. And your laptop cannot find your HDD to instal to.
You can test this theory by pulling the HDD out of the computer and mounting it on another computer as a Slave drive or attaching it with a USB Adapter. If it doesn't power up, you know that the drive needs to be replaced.

Hi,
I have a little problem with my custom USB device. I think it has something to do with Vista installation routines... So here are the steps that describe the problem. I install drivers for my device on Vista and than plug in the device. I go through all the wizards that windows suggests but Vista can't find a proper driver.Than i goto to my Control panel, find the device and do the "Refresh driver" directly pointing to the place where drivers have been installed. And than everything goes fine. So the trouble is Vista can't find proper drivers when i plug in the USB device. What could possibly go wrong? The same works perfectly on XP. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Answer:Drivers not found for USB device on plug.

Hi Revenge_one, welcome to TSF...

the next time you get the driver installation box pop up, try to direct the installer to the following location please:

C:\Windows\System32\DriverStore\FileRepository

Ensure the box is checked to include sub-folders and that may solve the problem.

If not, feel free to let us know

The error is always a problem with the installer as obviously the USB stick needs no DVD driver. Try writing the confirmed ISO to stick using Universal USB Installer to compare what happens.

I am reinstalling windows 7 on my laptop. Installing windows is not a new thing for me, as i have done this for a number of times on different laptops. But now, I encountered an error that I never have encountered before.

I made a bootable flash drive and copied all the contents of the iso to it (I have used the same iso since the first time i learned installing windows, so iso should not be the problem). Now, I restarted my laptop and booted it from the flash drive. It then showed the window with the button "install now". I clicked it and the error appeared saying:

"No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK"
"Load Driver
A required CD/DVD drive device is missing. if you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.
Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."

I believe i have done nothing wrong in my installation process, from making the bootable flash drive to booting from it.

My laptop:

No device drivers were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click OK

Followed by;

Hello all, I am trying to install Windows 7 on the following desktop PC:

Intel Core i3 Processor i3-530
2048MB DDR3
500GB 3G Hard Drive
ATI Radeon HD 4350 Graphics
Supermulti Drive with LightScribe Technology

First, I will start by saying that when I turn on my PC, I receive this message on a black screen "Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in selected Boot device and press a key". When I press a key, nothing changes, i.e. still stuck on the same screen.

So, I decided to install Windows 7.

When I tried installing Windows 7, it would begin the installation process... I clicked "Install Now", then when given the options between "Upgrade" or 'Custom (Advanced)', I selected the Custom Advanced.

When asked 'Where you would like to install Windows?' (see screenshot #1.jpg), there was nothing shown in the box, i.e. there is no hard drive or partition for me to select where I can install Windows. So just to try, I clicked "Load Driver".

It prompted me to install a device driver. I clicked Browse and browsed through the existing drives. (see Screenshot #2.jpg)

Next, it showed me that 'No device drivers were found..." (see Screenshot #3.jpg)

I tried to google on how to find the drivers to install but to no avail.

Any ideas on how I should proceed from here? i.e. How to install the device drivers needed to continue the installation process etc.

Hello, this is my first post on the forum, and I hope you can help me.
I have recently been given an HP 6465b probook. It had been dropped and the hard drive had failed. I installed a new hdd and got a copy of Windows 7 ultimate x64. The install went well until I discovered I couldn't connect to the Internet. There are at least 5 drivers missing.
They are for the SM Bus controller, Broadcom netxtreme gigabit ethernet controller, Broadcom netxtreme II network controller, two unknown devices. Now I think about there may be others as well.
I checked the system 32 / drivers folder and they are all there I think.
I tried to install the drivers in the usual way but windows says it cannot find them. I tried to install them from the windows disc. Again windows couldn't find them. I connected to my router via cable to try get cconnected that way but no luck. I have downloaded drivers to cd and installed from there, but I got an error code 10 device cannot start. In sysinfo it says driver not installed properly.
So I am at a loss as to what to try next. I hope the forum can assist with this.

I recently bought an Acer Aspire 4750G with no Windows pre-installed (i.e DOS).

I downloaded Windows 7 x64 Professional Edition .iso from the official MSDNAA website. I used Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool (run on Windows XP SP3) to create a bootable USB flashdisk (Sandisk Cruzer Blade 8.0GB). Note that the file format of the flashdisk is turned to NTFS.

Next, i inserted the flashdisk into the USB3.0 port of my 4750G, when into BIOS and changed the boot priority to USB HDD - Sandisk Cruzer Blade.
As usual, I saved the changes, exited the BIOS and reboot. Also note that the initial mode is AHCI.

Booting from flashdisk is successful. I was able to enter the setup. The first screen prompts to select country and keyboard. The next screen shows the button "Install Now".
When I clicked this button, the setup does not lead me to the License Agreement screen. Instead, it displays the following message:

First of all, this is my first post on this forum. (Hurray!) Only because most computer related issues I can fix myself with the help of the internet. However after trying to fix this for about 2 days now this is my last resort. Before you ask yes I have HUNTED through the internet trying to fix the issue, but most of the fixes are only specific to their computer so I've decided making a new thread would be the only other option.

So after finally getting sick of Windows Vista, I wanted to upgrade so I bought and downloaded the Windows 7 x32 .iso file and burned it at the lowest speed possible twice; once using ImgBurn, and once using InfraRecorder, after recieving the error the first time.

I was installing Win7 64bit last night on a PC that I was rebuilding. Known good i3-3220 CPU , ASUS P8Z77-V LK motherboard, Corsair power supply, but new RAM and Kingston 120GB SSD. I had numerous issues when trying to do a fresh install of Win7 with an OEM disk that I just bought at MicroCenter.

Numerous BSOD (usually in ntfs.sys, but also wimflt.sys)., inability to download updates, very slow install, the "start" button refused to work and the sfc /scannow would only get to 25% completed before it would fail.

Turns out, it was bad RAM. The 8GB of DDR3 (Crucial 12800, Ballistix Sport) was the culprit. I replaced the RAM and all of the problems were gone. I reinstalled the OS, then updated it, installed applications and stress tested it over night and all's well.

I just wanted to pass this along in case anyone else is experiencing similar issues...

Answer:Found the cause of my BSOD's when install Win7

Good call, big four failure point.... super easy one, thank goodness, eh!?!

So, if you look at my post from 2 days ago I was having windows issues. So, I gave up and reinstalled everything. I did the reinstall so Win7 would move my stuff to windows.old. I've done this once successfully in the past (Only once - not this time).
The install went great! Seems to be working now - spot ON! However, while I have a windows.old dir - there is nothing in it. There was this found.001 folder, it was hidden and had some VERY strange security settings on it. Me, not having a clue it took me about an hour to get in. I randomly applied settings....(sorry).

There is some weird stuff in this folder - WTHeck is it? It seems to have some of my old stuff in it? AND? I dunno - someone tell me what it is? Why it is here(on my cpu)? Should I be AlArMeD? I am not cpu is working fine.... BUT WTH?

I'll install Win7 home edition once its out. This guide here is pretty clear on how to do a clean install, but i still have a question. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/1649-clean-install-windows-7-a.html

What drivers will i need to install after Win7 is installed ???? Obviously my GPU driver, but what other drivers will i need ?

Thx.
 

Answer:After a clean install of Win7, what drivers ill need to install ?

Depends on your hardware.
I do latest versions of...
*Motherboard/Chipset .infs...to build a good foundatoin
*Graphics
*SATA controller/RAID controller
*Sound/NIC, including wireless NIC

If it's a laptop, add some system drivers for those function keys, power management for proper hiber/standby, hard drive shock protection.

Yeah some people will say "But Windows 7 has most of those, just use Microsoft Update"

Well, it's been the same for all prior versions of Windows, yes the latest OS will usually include built in drivers for existing hardware out there. Vista had more drivers for existing hardware than XP when Vista first came out. And XP had more drivers for existing hardware than 2K when it first came out. And 98Se had more drivers for existing hardware than 95 when it first came out...blah blah blah blah blah, same ol same ol if you've been in the game for a few years.

But for optimal performance and stability, the latest drivers from the manufacturer are usually the best option.

Now to toss a monkey wrench in the mix, since Win7 isn't officially released to the pub yet, many manufacturers haven't released their latest drivers for 7 yet. The Vista ones may work fine, the ones Win7 has built in may work fine, or you just may have to wait.

Hi all,
I just got a new Lenovo G560 laptop. To enable use of Truecrypt, I cleaned the drive and converted to MBR then reinstalled Windows 7 64 bit. Now, I cannot install any of the Lenovo drivers. They either fail saying that the computer does not meet the minimum requirements for the software or the drivers are not compatible with current hardware. I'm certain the system is 64 bit and so are all the drivers. I have tried reformatting back to GPT, no help. I have now been searching online for two days to find a solution and I am running out of time. I've tried so many things now - resetting BIOS defaults, removing RAM/battery for long periods of time, uninstalling an reinstalling devices. This applies to literally all drivers - USB ports, network controllers, ethernet and wireless cards, chipset drivers, all of them. I'm desperate, can anyone please help?

Answer:Can't install any drivers after fresh Win7 install

the drivers are not compatible with current hardware
i.e. machine is too new and there are no drivers for windows 7

I feel like an idiot for asking this question... but do I need to install manufacture drivers? Specifically, with some of the previous OS's, things never worked until I installed drivers from the manufacturers of my components. For example, my on-board LAN might not work until I installed the LAN Chipset from the company that made my motherboard (be it asus, msi, etc.)

This time around, after installing Win7, everything seems to magically work. Out of habit, I've gone to Asus's website (I have an Asus P5Q Pro Mobo) and downloaded the chipset, realtek audio, LAN/NIC, and various SATA drivers. But... do I need to actually install any of that? I'm thinking of installing the realtek audio drivers, but if what does the other stuff accomplish? What does installing Asus chipset drivers do for me? If my internet is already working, do I have to bother w/ LAN/NIC? And similarly I can detect all my SATA devices too..

At the moment, I'm thinking of only really installing 2 drivers... (1) Realtek Audio (2) ATI Catalyst (for video card).

Should I be installing the other ones?
 

Answer:New Win7 Install - Do I need to install manufacture drivers?

Windows 7 automatically finds new drivers from Windows Update.

Vista does this, too, but it didn't seem as majic, lol.
XP is supposed to do this, but it rarely worked for me.

I'd only recommend installing (1) if it gives you surround sound (wierd thing on some notebooks, like the m1210 from Dell) and (2) if you really think you need it.

ATi driver updates are few and between, and Windows Update typically provides them up-to-date,

Okay, what I want to do is, boot using my USB flash drive then run the setup from my internal DVD device that's all.

Hello,
So, I've had a pretty big issue today. I installed Debian as a dual boot with win10, and it worked! The only problem was that I didn't have access to either root or sudo. In order to fix that, I booted into Ubuntu because my Debian live image logs out after a few seconds and mounted the partitions that Linux was installed on. My part table is below:
/dev/sda1 - EFI
/dev/sda2 - Microsoft Reserved
/dev/sda3 - Microsoft Basic Data
/dev/sda4 - Windows Recovery
/dev/sda5 - Windows Recovery
/dev/sda6 - Linux /root
/dev/sda7 - Linux Swap
/dev/sda8 - Linux /home

I believe I mounted sda 1, 6, 8, and by mistake 5. I ejected the device (by accident without umount) and then tried to boot. My computer is a dell, and on boot I immediately got the device recovery menu. I booted into the F2 UEFI menu, and saw that my boot options list had gone from Debian, windows boot menu, and my hard disk, which was labelled as UEFI (some numbers here, sorry).

I've tried everything I can think of, including hours of non-stop googling. I removed and formatted the partitions Linux was installed on, and then reset the MBR from a windows live CD. I don't think it went through, because there is still no option in the F2 menu for device boot unless I plug a device in. I believe windows is still there, but there is no way for me to access it.

I can't access it through a Debian live image, because the one I installed from had an issue where as soon as I logged in, it would immediately log me out.

Hi again Tech guy! I just noticed I've been a member of this site for 12 years!

Anyway.

My current issue is that my hp pavilion z15 laptop was displaying the above message on a black screen when I came back to it. I am currently using it to post this though. I hit the power botton and it came back on. It started making some HORRIBLE noises though ... like when you'd put a videocassette in a VCR and it was getting ready to play or rewind or fast forward. I am not sure if it made those noises right before the message came up. I wasn't in the room...

I was going to do a chat with hp tech support but when trying to get into it it kept saying it didn't recognize my product name/number. Also I made a recovery usb a little bit ago just in case they will take it and repair it because it is still under the 1 year warranty.

I guess my main question is if it sounds like the hard drive is failing which is what comes up when searching. I'm not going to open it myself. I don't know if those hard drive tests I did on my last computer would work for this.

Also kinda worried those two things were 1 time things and then everything will be fine till literally the day my warranty runs out then it will break for good. I like this laptop. It's my first one. I like it way better than all my other desktops....

Another reason that it might not be seeing the hard drive is because there is no bootable operating system on the hard drive.

(Code 19)" This is on Win7 (x64). How can I get my web cam working again?

Answer:Can't install Y570 EasyCamera driver - device not found

Hi
 
Welcome To Lenovo Community
 
Use System Restore to revert device drivers and registry configurations back to a state previous to the Code 19 error. Be sure to choose a restore point from a date and time before you know or suspect that the Code 19 error first appeared.
 
 
Hope This Helps
Cheers!!!

I recently found an old Gateway desktop in my basement. It is from a few years back, but I figured I'd do a clean install of Windows XP on it and run it in an extra room.

I copied the drivers over using a program called DriverMax, and it seemed to work successfully. I had the internet right away and everything else I tried worked.

The only problem I am having is that there is no sound. It also says there is no audio device found. Device Manager says I have the most up to date Legacy Audio Drivers, but I am still having this problem.

Is there another driver that I might need in order for my computer to recognize an audio device. Is there anything else that I can do to try to fix this problem.

I am at work right now, but when I get home I will post my system specs.

Thanks in advance.

hi all,

currently I am trying to do a fresh install of windows 7 on an old notebook, Compaq Presario V3500 (v3752au)

the problem:
I can not get pass the hard drive detection process, it kept throwing error saying that 'no device driver found'

what I have done so far: search for the motherboard specifications on the net and I got conflicted results, some state that the notebook uses nvidia nforce 560 chipset and the other state that it is using intel 945 chipset
however I downloaded both chipset drivers from numerous resources and still it would not work
consequently I tried every driver there is in Compaq support site and still I am in vain
posted this thread

additional informations: the original OS on the notebook is vista home edition but now it is all gone, including recovery partition
at first I can see the hard disk, but there is a problem using the existing disk/partition to install windows 7, went around the net looking for solutions and at the end I manage to delete the partition in preparation for a fresh install (using shift+F10 command prompt during locale selection)
booting windows 7 installation from usb drive is impossible since there are no such option in bios

I am hoping that any of you guys can point me to a proper remedy for this problem

thanks in advance

Answer:windows 7 fresh install - no device driver found

Wait explain better half of your post is explaining installing drivers the other half windows installation??

For the device error make sure your first boot partition is dvd drive. Also make sure it is set as IDE drive in your bios. If its a sata drive you will probably encounter this error. I helped someone correct that error can you give me more details about what setup your using hard drive dvd drive?

boot device not found please install an operating system on your hard disk hard disk (3FO).....help!I've tried BIOS reset -didn't work.Memory test passed.Tried diagnostic check - quick & extensive - no hard drive!Many solutions say that the hard drive may have become disconnected but I'm not confident enough to take off the back & start messing around with it.Also it's just less than 12 months old & hardly been used. I don't want to invalidate my warranty by damaging anything if I start taking it apart but also don't think I should have to pay for it to be repaired.Advice please - I need it! Thanks in advance.

Right, I've ran a few tests, gathered the information, and now I need the help.  I have a ...HP Pavilion G6-1130saProduct Number - LZ650EA#AEU (Or could be #ABU, might have wrote it down wrong.) The Problem... I was using my laptop, just opened another tab on Chrome and typed something in to search on Google when it happened. My internet started to go, and I wasn't sure what was wrong. After 5 minutes of no loading I tried to close the internet, but it wouldn't work, nor would trying to switch programs, or start Task Manager.  I shut the computer off by holding power button. When I rebooted, I got this: Boot Device Not FoundPlease Install an Operating System on your Hard Disk Hard Disk (3F0)  Press Esc for... blah blah.  For more info go to www.hp.com/go/techcenter/startup Now, I've found a few topics, and people have been saying that it's a software error and I need to ring up for a replacement Hard Drive (bit late but will call up tomorrow) and others have said it doesn't definitely mean it is the HD, the problem is also cause by a failure in some chipset in the mother board.  I've pressed F2 for System Diagnose Got these OptionsF1 System info  (Copied everything here so if you need any of this just ask)F2 Start-Up Test (started this but was taking too long, cancelled and it said 'Test cancelled' and also something about HD Failure)F3 Run-In TestF4 Hard Disk Test (Failed - "Hard Disk D...

Answer:HP Pavilion G6 Series- Boot Device Not Found Please Install ...

I'd like to add some more info to my post.  I was asking if I was actually booting from my external Hard Drive. The answer was no. For some reason, the computer had fixed itself temporarily, and was booting perfectly fine for about 30 minutes.  It did this twice, before completely stopping again.  I rang HP earlier, to try to ordewr a replacement HDD. I waqs informed that all I needed was a new copy of Windows 7, as I didn't have the Windows 7 disc (it was ex-display model laptop, no copy was given) and they would send a technition round to my house to install it with a CD.  I'd be charged for this ofcourse, apparetly, if I were to go to a computer shop I'd be charged 80 pounds for Win 7 and and extra 70 for installation and fixing the laptop. The man on the phone seemed very wary on telling me the price and I never actually got an estimate.  He gave me a number to call so I could get a Tech sent out, but the number didn't work.  So I rang up the computer shop I love - they are always looking out for you. I explained it to them and what HP Help had said.  My computer shop guy said that It could either be my copy of Win 7 has become corrupt and needs re-installing (but he doubts it is this as it would say 'File is missing', not 'Boot device') or my Hard Drive software has a problem and will need replacing, which it is most likely to be.  His estimates for fixing where - If only Win 7...
