Preferred Solution: R61e "driver instalation failed could not find the MEDIA device for this 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: R61e "driver instalation failed could not find the MEDIA device for this driver"

nath, welcome to the forum, have you installed the UAA HD audio driver? You can find it by scrolling down a bit on the R61e Audio Driver Site, please ensure you follow the instructions. Hope this helps

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....

Hello I'm trying to get the audio working on an R400 (2787-A36), Windows XP SP3. I tried installing the driver from here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-70595, but it fails giving me a "Could not find Media Device for this Driver" error. Most of the suggestions I came across involved installing the UAA (888111) hotfix from Microsoft. However, it doesn't install saying the Service Pack version is newer than the one I'm trying to install. Can someone help me out here? Let me know if you need any more details. Thanks a lot for your help!

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.

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!

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.

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.

People will be working at their PC, hear the USB disconnect sound, and their keyboard will become unusable for 30+ seconds.

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?

Full event error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device {C5A047D8-CB5B-40E9-B9E3-316AB06B5A18}\WirelessKeyboardFilter`

Driver environment:
Windows 10 x64 desktop
I have a wireless Microsoft mouse
I do not have a Microsoft wireless keyboard
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):

Anyone else run across this condition or have a known solution using the latest driver?

Thanks,

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?

Going into Properties of the "PCI Simple Communications Device Manager", I find that the vendor is "8086" (Intel) and the device is "2A44". I find nothing on the Lenovo site. The laptop seems to be working properly (except for the speakers, which must be disconnected as the audio jack does work) and all other drivers have been installed and updated.  Can anybody help here? Thanks.

Answer:T400 Cannot find PCI Simple Communications Driver and PCI Serial Port Driver in Device Manager

Good day.
 
In my experience the Intel Active Management Technology and/or Management Engine packages supply drivers for these.
 
Checking here: http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-t40...under the Chipset section, I don't see packages for Windows 10, though.

If you receive A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing or A media driver your computer needs is missing error message when you install Windows then KB2755139 shows the way to fix the issue.
This issue occurs if A low-quality DVD was used to create the installation DVD, The speed at which the installation DVD was burned was too fast, The DVD drive cannot read the media or The ISO file is corrupted.

Because I couldn't get properly running some games like FFOW on my Windows 7 (not compatible) I decided to buy 64bit Vista Ultimate.
But while installation ,required CD/DVD drive device driver missing, message was shown.
I looked at some forums and found was problem also somewhere else for some other people...
I tried couple of things whitch didn't work for me but luckily I found a solution.
Here it is:



Thats what worked for me.

In BIOS setting (while start up press F2) at Advanced Tab there is a SATA Operation:AHCI (not RAID but I don't know, even RAID maight work) and SATA AHCI Mode: I changed from Legacy AHCI to Native AHCI.

As described at Item Specific Help Tab: Native AHCI will load option ROM, but legacy will not.

Before while instalation Wista Ultimate 64 bit on my Alienware x17 aftere while was message shown:

During install "required CD/DVD drive device driver missing"

After changing SATA AHCI mode in BIOS to Native AHCI while setup was soon shown field requiere serial number...GREAT!!!

When instaling I manually reboot couple of times when just black screen with blinking cursor was shown (and nothing was happening...)

Now my Vista 64 bit is fully intaled, thanks to all guys at forums to let me thing and inspired me to find (with a bit of good luck) solution.

I had similar problem like many of you, wish you good luck to make your system working (if you need to)

Hi There ,

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?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Audio Driver not working "Could not find device for this driver" Gateway laptop

Could not find the device for this driver

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.

"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.

Hi,
I have recently bought Samsung galaxy S5 device. When I tried to connect it to my computer I nothing happend (what should have happen is that it will pop up the "What do you want to do? Go to folder/..." menu).
So I tried another usb socket. still the same problem. I have Ubunto install as a sperate OS on my computer, and there everything is working fine - so the problem is not in the cable/USB on my computer.

I went to Device manager and under "Portable devices" I see the "SAMSUNG Mobile MTP Device" icon with a yellow mark.

Most likely is that it's a new USB or mouse you've plugged in, and windows hasn't managed to automatically download drivers.
usually just disconnecting then reconnecting the device (make sure your internet is working) fixes the issue.

Does Lenovo provide Windows 10 drivers for your PC?

From an etaf (Wayne) post:

How to identify hardware in Device Manager

right click on the device with a yellow!

from the menu choose
properties
Click on the Details Tab
Under the Property - drop down
Select hardware ids
Right click and select all
Then right click again and select copy
Copy and paste that information here

You should see a code similar to this

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_008A&SUBSYS_53058086&REV_34

please reply with the full code for your device(s)

The portion of the code highlighted in RED is the Vendor ID and the portion highlighted in GREEN is the Device ID. In this example:

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_008A&SUBSYS_53058086&REV_34

Vendor ID = 8086
Device ID = 008A

Post back those two numbers make sure we know which is vendor ID and which is device ID

These codes can be looked up at this site http://www.pcidatabase.com/

As an example the link for that database tells us that;
Vendor ID code 8086 is for this vendor - Intel Corporation
Device ID code 008A is for this device - Intel Centrino Wireless-N1030

Hey folks.

I burnt the Windows 7 RC ISO to a DVD no problem as far as I'm aware. In am able to boot the computer off of the CD. When I go to install Windows 7, it tells me it can't find the CD/DVD device driver.

The driver is a SonyNEC Optiarc 20x AD-7190A model. Found the latest firmware (v 1.05); installed it.

Still not able to locate the drivers upon install.

I'm stuck.

Any ideas?

Answer:Windows 7 RC - Cannot find CD/DVD device driver?

Very strange. To even tell you that, it had to read the data from the DVD lol!

There are other ways to install it, such as from a USB stick or external hard drive. Now that I think about it, you could probably even use a second internal hard drive to boot from (after setting things up of course) to install Windows 7 to the first.

You could possibly check out one of them.

Or if possible, move the DVD drive to its own port on the motherboard and set it as master with the jumper (if it's an IDE drive.)

Hi, guys.

When I want to install certain programs, there is a set of error messages that makes the installation fail. They're as follows:

"c:\PROGRA~1\Symantec\S32EVNT1.DLL. An installable Virtual Device Driver failed Dll initialization. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application."

If I push "ignore" then this message appears:

"c:\Windows\system32\autoexec.nt. The system file is not suitable for running ms-dos and microsoft windows applications. Choose 'close' to terminate the application."

I have a feeling that this is caused by a Norton antivirus program I installed couple years ago that I had a heck of a time removing. Could there be a chance that some parts of the program is still lingering to cause this?

I've been having this problem for the longest times and threw away a bunch of software because I simply couldn't install them. It's soooo frustrating. Please help!

Try flushing out all the old driver parameters with the following procedure, see if that helps with the recognition of the device.

Create a file with NOTEPAD containing the following lines and save it as FIX.REG
-------------------------- cut after this line --------------------------------
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment]

"DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES"="1"
-------------------------- cut before this line --------------------------------

Double click on FIX.REG and say yes to the Merge Into Registry question.

Unplug ALL USB devices.
Open Device Manager.
View, Show Hidden Devices.
Uninstall all devices under USB Controllers.
Uninstall all devices under Disk Drives that you know are not present.
Uninstall all devices under Storage Volumes. Say no to any reboot prompts until you are finished. Also, if a Storage Volume doesn't uninstall, ignore it and move to the next one.
If you have a yellow ? with unknown devices, uninstall all of the entries there as well.

When this is done, reboot TWICE.

Reconnect the USB devices and see if they're recognized properly.

Try running SymNRT, the Norton Removal Tool from Symantec. It works better than any of the 3rd party Norton removers. It may be too late, but it might still be able to clean up any remnants. Get it here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/Norton_Removal_Tool_SymNRT_d4749.html You should probably also run a registry cleaner. CCleaner has proven itself both safe and effective; run both the disk cleaner and the registry cleaner using default settings and be sure to save the reg when prompted by CCleaner (just in case ). You'll be required to reboot after SymNRT (if it runs), and you should probably reboot after CCleaner. Then retry your installation.

Hi

I think this can be solved very easily.
There are some threads which provide an solution;

Usually you need to delete this device in device manager.
Then you have to go to registry and have to remove the upper and lower filters from registry key.
Here you can get more details:

I have a toshiba laptop that I'm upgrading to vista...when I run the Toshiba Upgrade Assistant it starts to install vista components. There's a total of 22. The first 2 installed fine, but the third, the Intel(R) Graphic Media Accelerator Driver for some reason fails to install. The pop up installer says that the installation was complete, but then a pop up comes up and says that it failed to install and restarts my computer. Is there anyway to skip the graphic media driver install so that I can have all the other components installed? This problem doesn't really affect the running of vista, but every time I start my computer the installation thing pops up, but I want vista to complete its installation, ya know? Ok, so if anybody can help, that'd be great!
 

Answer:Failed to install Intel(R) Graphic Media Accelerator Driver

Since it's a Toshiba package you are installing, rather than separate components yourself -- I'd contact Toshiba and ask them about it.

Unless the installation package gives you the ability to custom install, I don't know what answer can be given here.

You could do a system restore to revert to the pre install date, but then none of the updates would be installed.

You also might try disabling UAC and see if that's a factor. This can be done through the program "msconfig" > Tools and requires a reboot.

I am tying to sync my Samsung Galaxy J7Sky Pro phone with my computer using Samsung Smart Switch Program.
When I start the Smart Switch Program and plug in the USB cable from the phone to the computer USB port, the device driver for the phone does not install properly or recognize the phone, as depicted by a yellow exclaimation point for the Galaxy J7 Sky Pro
device driver and AMDA00 interface under system devices.
I tried reinstalling the Samsung phone device driver but still get the above exclaimation for these drivers.
I then shut down and restarted the Samsung phone and the drivers reinstalled properly and the Smart Switch Program worked. 

My issue is that the next time I restarted my computer, I get the same device driver errors.
Is there some way to prevent having to restart and reinstall the device drivers each time I want to sync my phone using the Smart Switch program? 
Same issue used to happen with my Samsung Galaxy SIII phone, before I upgraded to the Samsung Galaxy J7 Sky Pro.
It is a real pain in the neck and time waster.

Recently started using our older computer again. Upon startup I get the error message 7308 that the computer can't find device driver protman.dos. I searched the computer for it and found it in C:\Program Files\America Online 7.0\net\Win98SE. Did a little research online and found out that the file belongs in the Net8.cab file in Win98. So I found the Net8.cab file (which was zipped,) so I unzipped it and tried to move the file over, but it wouldn't let me. I get a message saying that I can't add to CAB files, and that protman.dos isn't a CAB file, and something about UUEncode, which I know nothing about. Is there a way to move the file, or is there a way to work around it? The computer seems to work ok, and I'm connecting to the internet ok. So it's not really interfering except that I get the annoying message. Thanks. Ed.

Answer:Msg: Fail to find and install unknown device driver

If the Computer is working fine then it is best to disable the pesky device that keeps asking for the driver in the Device Manager.

After that open the Device Manager (Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\System) and send its screen-shot with the unknown device expanded to help in determining what this device is.

Failed to find driver for ‘Video Controller’, Dell Optiplex 280 model -Win 7 ultimate 32-bit
Error message (when attempting to play Chess or any other games that came with windows); “Hardware acceleration is either disabled or not supported by your video card driver, which could slow performance. Make sure you have the latest video card drivers installed.”
It has been over 3 months since I have been looking for a solution. About a year ago, I moved from XP to Window 7 ultimate and everything worked nicely. Then I run into a problem which I had to reinstall windows again. I did and everything worked fine except that I can’t play any games. Device manager shows ‘video controller’ driver is missing. So I tried to update the driver, the system couldn’t find it. I went to the dell site and there isn’t anything for my system for window 7. The only driver I can find was for window vista. I tried that didn’t seem to be compatible. So far I have tried pretty much everything that has been suggested on sites I came across except updating the driver through windows update which isn’t feasible given the type of connection I have.
Mind you, I don’t have high speed. I use CDMA and the speed I get is nothing more than dial up. You have no idea how long it takes to create an account on here and post this.

Answer:Failed to find driver for ‘Video Controller’, Dell Optiplex 280 model -Win 7 ultimate

The Dell OptiPlex GX280 desktop is a very old model and only has driver support for Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
It does not have driver support for Windows Vista or Windows 7.

It has 4 slots and supports a maximum of 4 GB of RAM.
If you're going to run Windows Vista or Windows 7 in it, you need to add at least another 1 GB to the 1 GB that's currently in it.
Here is the recommended 2 GB(1 GB x2) kit for it.

The only way that you're likely going to resolve the display issue is to install a video card that supports Windows 7.

I just clean installed my Lenovo ThinkPad R61e with Windows xp I had Ubuntu 10.04 before that and I don't have any backups of device drivers or anything.

Hey everyone

I've encountered this problem in the following machine:

1.8ghz AMD Sempron 3400+
512mb RAM
2 x 40GB HDD drives
1 x CD drive
1 x DVD drive
Biostar motherboard (VIA chipset)

This particular computer has "extended" drives available, or something like that, that I had never seen, giving it the ability to load up to 6 IDE devices. Under Hardware manager, they show up as Primary, Primary, Secondary, Secondary.

Now, I don't know what they did before I took over, but both the CD drive and DVD drive, while appearing fine under the BIOS, do not show up in Windows, and instead have an exclamation mark next to them in the device manager. I uninstalled all IDE controllers, which uninstalled both drives, rebooted, and no good. I reinstalled the Biostar Chipset drivers (VIA) and it didn't do any good.

Apparently someone had the same problem and got a solution over at x-pert x-change, but their greedy hands want me to pay to see the solution. Not in this lifetime, buster!

So any help regarding this issue is greatly appreciated, I will continue to troubleshoot, but I'm not very good at optical drives.

Thanks!
 

Answer:On CD drives: Windows loaded the driver correctly but could not find the device

Maybe works, try to connect only one of optical driver with one of working HDD on same IDE cable and setup jumper of the optical driver as "Slave". Jumper setting is important thing on IDE connections. And put a bootable CD (like Windows setup cd) in optical driver, will it work.
Use this TOOL maybe works.
I hope that gives you some ideas.

I have XP running with a Samsung 840 EVO SSD:
Motherboard: ASUS P5KPL-CM
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU E7400 @ 2.80 GHz
AMIBIOS:
Version 0606
Build date 03/11/09
Bios IDE Config:
ATA/IDE Configuration [Enhanced]
Enhanced Mode Support on [S-ATA]

I have swapped the current SSD for a new one (nothing on it) and want to install Windows 7 onto it. On booting from the installer 7 DVD disk I'm getting:

Select the driver to be installed:
Load the driver:

"A required CD/DVD drive driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk. CD, DVD or USB flash drive..."

It then asks you to browse the missing driver.

From looking at the forum's I think this error is due installer not being able to find the SATA device driver.

It needs something like:

Intel (R) 6 Series C100 Series Chipset Family 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller

What I'm confused about is that I must have a SATA device driver as I have one SSD
running under XP. So is it just a case of finding this device driver in an XP windows folder?
Or do I need a more modern one - an ACHI SATA driver for running under Windows 7?

The other confusing thing is that the forums point one at the motherboard manufacturer
for the driver but ASUS don't have anything on the website. So is it intel I should be looking at or in fact Samsung!

Thanks for any pointers.

Answer:Windows 7 installer not able to find SATA RAID device driver

You need to put in a USB drive key the "Intel? Matrix Storage Manager" drivers (F6) dedicated to windows 7. That's the one missing you have to browse during Windows 7 Installation:

here Intel? Matrix Storage Manager and pick up the F6 drivers "f6flpy3289.zip" (for x32bits of Windows 7) or "f6flpy6489.zip" if you plan install x64bits of Windows 7, extract the files in the USB Drive & plug it before starting the Windows 7 Install CD.

and pick up also "IATA89CD.exe" to install the software monitoring after you have finished windows 7 install. It should be the right ones as your motherboard ASUS P5KPL-CM support Intel G31/ICH7 Chipset.

or you could skip browsing the drivers and try afterward this method.

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 after OS install then install the Intel matrix storage manager monitoring software afterward if needed.

Bios will have to be set as "Enhanced Mode Support on [S-ATA]" prior to install.

Answer:No Audio device - Code 52 - can't find a driver that works 64bit

The default basic function Microsoft HD Audio Codec should only be used if nothing else is available. The PC vendor's audio driver is the preferred as non vendor drivers in many cases either do not work or do not work correctly.

The code 52, along with the digital signing, could also be malware on the PC according to what I see doing a google search.

Go to the Device Manager, RIGHT click on the entry for the sound device and then LEFT click "Uninstall". Also check the box to uninstall drivers. Restart the PC and when Windows starts try to install the correct vendor sound driver.

My friend is trying to install windows 7 from a usb flash drive. It boots fine from usb fine and starts the setup however when she goes to install it asks &quot;insert the media device and select the driver windows 7&quot;. Ive looked around the forums and google and found that this can be a usb 2.0 , 3.0 problem with people just switching to the 2.0 slot and it working. However this does not work for her and so I looked around more and found it might be needing the drivers for the USB ports had her insert the disc that came with the motherboard however non of the setups in the usb folder work and im not sure which specific file she needs to choose to get the driver to install or 100 % if that is even the issue. Any ideas? Intel? Desktop Board DZ68DB - Overview this is the board Forgot to mention this hard drive is from her older computer so its a new motherboard / cpu / ram.

Answer:insert the media device and select the driver windows 7

I could be wrong here, but since the PC boots from the USB drive and starts the installation, it obviously does not need to install drivers to use the USB drive. My guess is that it wants drivers for the hard drive.

NOW, with this, I'm doing while windows is running and in trying to open and run setup using the same one I've always used, I'm getting this ERROR upon trying to INSTALL:

Setup has caused an error in SETUP.exe Setup will now CLOSE


That's it.... Can't install. What's going on? Are these problems related? And if so, what's up? If not, for now, please address how I can get around this if at all so I can get my sound working and software/drivers installed -- just in case, I am installing C-Media's CMI8738-C3DX PCI Audio for WIN ME --
Or rather, want to install.

So far, nothing I've tried avoids this SETUP error, which I've never run into before. Everything is a different error regarding what I've posted or I'd combine the thread.

Thanks for help.

Google and install "driver cleaner" and "easy cleaner". Run both in that order. Reinstall driver.

Hi, I purchased a 7 in 1 Digital Media reader, and it is supposed to be Plug and Play, but none of my five computers recognize it and I cannot find an updated device driver or any device driver for it. Where can I find one or how can I get this thing to work? Any and all responses will be appreciated.
 

Answer:7 in 1 Digital Media Reader missing device driver

Hi Snwdemon, and welcome to TSG.

If might be rather difficult for any of us to offer any suggestions if we don't know the brand and model number (and maybe an FCC ID#) of your reader.

Does the reader packaging or documentation say it is supported by your operating system (XP Pro)?

Is it an external USB reader or one made to be installed in a desktop computer?

I need a C-Media PCI Audio Device Windows 8.1 Driver link

Answer:I need a C-Media PCI Audio Device Windows 8.1 Driver link

Generally C-Media does not provide drivers. C-Media is used by sound card vendors such as ASUS. You have to get the driver from the sound card vendor.

I had an HT Omega sound card, in an old system, and it used the C-Media chip. But, HT Omega provided the driver.

I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit from Lenovo and did a fresh install on my Y530.  After adding every possible Windows 7 driver from http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_list.aspx?CategoryID=13 I still see one Unknown Device in the Device Manager.  The device is identified as ACPI\VPC2004.  I guess that's a power management device, and the driver's name is "ATK ACPI driver".  I downloaded it from http://consumersupport.lenovo.com/us/en/DriversDownloads/drivers_show_2864.html . After installing the "ATK ACPI driver" I reboot and still see the unknown device, ACPI\VPC2004.  Is there a driver that works for the ACPI\VPC2004 device?













Solved!
