Fix: Signed driver is displayed as unsigned in Windows 7

Question: Fix: Signed driver is displayed as unsigned in Windows 7

If you have a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2 and you install a driver that has a Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) or Authenticode signature on the computer.
But in Device Manager, when you expand the corresponding device, right-click the driver, and then click Properties and then click the Driver Details button on the Driver tab, you may find that the driver file is displayed as unsigned! This issue occurs because of incorrect logic when the Authenticode flag in the catalog file of the driver is checked.
To fix this issue download and apply this hotfix from KB2619914.

Preferred Solution: Fix: Signed driver is displayed as unsigned in Windows 7

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.)

I'll try to keep this brief:

> Upgraded GFX cards to 2 x Asus EAH4980 (ATI Radeon HD4890 architecture) from NVidia 8800GTS

> Performed full format on HD and reinstalled Windows Vista X64 Home Premium as well as SP1 and SP2

> Installed chipset drivers etc.

> Installed bundled VGA drivers (8.592)

> Installed miscellaneous software/games

System was running very stable and performing well in Benchmarking tests and games. I then tried to update the VGA drivers to the latest versions, first from ATI's own website - Catalyst 9.8 with VGA driver displayed in Device Manager as 8.640 - and then from Asus' website - displayed as 8.630 in Device Manager.

No matter what drivers I update to I am met with BSOD errors as soon as I try to run any kind of media on my PC. The dump files/dxdiag info etc. is attached to this post.

Upon investigation I note that one driver is not loading and is listed as 'not digitally signed', namely

ATKDispLowFilter.sys

This driver is an AsusTek release. It appears to load ok before I perform these driver updates. I can find no reference to any issues with it either on Asus' forums or elsewhere so this doesn't appear to be a common problem.

I've tried to locate a signed version of the driver to no avail.

Any solution would be very much appreciated.

Phil

can anybody tell me how to find out which drivers on my pc are signed and which ones are not. I want to try to eliminate all the unsigned ones!!!!

Answer:Signed versus unsigned

Why would you want to do that? Uncertified drivers arent necessarily bad.
In fact its a good thing when it comes to video drivers. If you wait
for Microsoft to qualify them that vid card may be extinct.

Hello, I am have trouble completely understanding unsigned and signed integers in C++, I don't know what it is but they confuse me! Please give me the most detailed information you can on this or just post a link to a useful tutorial. Thanks!
 

Answer:Explain Unsigned and Signed integers in C++

A signed integer can be negative or positive. An unsigned integer can only be positive.

OK, first post in this forum, please bear with me. I did try to research BUT all I found was how to disable the unsigned driver block. I followed this tutorial:

1. Click on the Start Menu, Click on power, then hold the Shift key and click Restart at the same time.
2. After the PC restarts click on Troubleshoot, click on Advanced options, click Start Up Settings then click Restart.
3. After the PC restarts Press the number 7 to Disable driver signature enforcement. Windows will now load.
4. Locate the "blah blah device.inf" Right click on it and choose Install. You'll get a warning but go ahead and install it.
5. Plug in your device, right click on Start Menu, choose Device Manager.
6. Expand "Ports (COM & LPT)" If you have more than one device here you'll have to figure out which is the device and then right click on it. choose Update Driver Software
7. Choose "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" then "Let me pick from a list of devices.."
8. Check the box "Show compatible hardware" Click on "blah blah blah device" Then click next. You should get a screen that says "Windows has successfully updated your driver software"

Device working GREAT, BUT, the guide had said (in other places, not posted here) the 'unsigned driver block' will revert back when a restart of the machine occurred. I restarted, and to 'check' if the driver block was re-instated I tried the procedure again. It basically told m... Read more

Answer:Re-enable 'unsigned' driver settings after installing an unsigned drvr

Greetings

I seem to have a compound problem with my Dell desktop running windows xp sp2 installation.

After running Microsoft's Live OneCare my system developed what seems to be known as the login/logout loop,

This is where you get to the Select User screen, then when you select user it after a couple of seconds it takes you back to the select user screen.

Safe mode and selecting different users makes no difference, and so doing anything from windows is impossible

This problem seems to have been traced to registry errors, where some malware is removed but the registry still points to it.

So i figured I'd put the repair disk in and run a repair, since my system is unusable at present.

So now my problem is that midway through the repair it comes across an Unsigned driver for my Nvidia graphics card. All i have to do at this point is click yes or no, but at this stage of the proceedings the drivers for the USB keyboard and mouse aren't yet installed (there are no PS2 ports) and so i have no means of selecting yes or no and therefore the repair can't continue.

this page here describes the reason for the repair stop

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827052/en-us

that page also links to a page of possible solutions

There's a "code 52" (driver is unsigned) error in properties of exclamation signed "USB Mass Storage Device" at Device Manager for different devices including usb drives of different manufactures and android phone set to usb mass storage mode There's an F8 reboot option for Windows which disables driver signature enforcement, in which case all devices are working properly This looks like a problem with a standard usbstor.sys driver. Microsoft support says that since Microsoft never develops drivers I should contact lenovo support Another interesting thing is that "Driver Details" subdialog on the "Driver" pane of the device properties dialog displays different version of the driver (namely 6.1.7600.16592) then the "Driver" pane itself (which says 6.1.7601.21680). There's currently neither corresponding usbstor.inf file in "windows\inf", nor usbstor.sys file in "windows\system32\drivers" although the above information about the USB Mass Storage devices is present. I did locate several versions of this driver within windows folder, but copying them into those locations with several device uninstallations, installations and reboots didn't help

I'm installing Windows 7 or Windows 10 to an older PC with a motherboard no longer supported by the manufacturer (Asus A8V-E Deluxe). The system is capable of handling either OS. This will be a fresh install to blank hard drives. The last updated driver is unsigned and originally meant for Windows Vista. The driver is for the on-board hard drive controller, and is required in order for Windows to see the hard disks.

I know how to disable enforcement of unsigned drivers once the OS is already installed, but I need to do this during initial install or the install will fail after first reboot (starts loading but after a few seconds freezes with just the Windows logo displaying). Attempts to run a repair also fail. Attempting to load the driver during install keeps failing as it's unsigned. The driver database w/in Windows doesn't seem to have a comparable driver to support this. Anyone know a way around this?

Thanks for any help!

I have been trying now to install drivers for my Panasonic Digital Camera, which installs itself as a ZIP drive (it uses a 3.5 100MB ZiP disk instead of memory cards), and Fusion Dazzle which is an analog to digital convereter. Both plug in via USB. They used to work perfectly until I had to reformat and reinstall Windows on my computer.

I now get an error message that it is missing certain files (which ARE on the system) and it is looking for "C:\PCLEUSB.drv". When I point it to the correct driver location I get an error message saying that this driver has not been digitally signed to be compatible for Windows XP and will now exit installation.

I am using the most current drivers from the manufacturer and they say that they are Windows compatible and I am the first to have this problem. So far, they have been unable to assist.

Any suggestions?

Answer:windows require a digitally signed driver xp 32 sp2

A signed driver is not necessary in Windows. It is an extra security layer, as drivers can become corrupt by malware. If you obtained the driver from a trusted source (like the device manufacturer's website), you can go ahead and tell Windows to install it.

Hi

The last few times I started my computer, the system comes with the warning:

"Windows requires a digitally signed driver
Driver: Broadcom NetDetect Driver
Service: BASFND
Publisher: Broadcom Corporation
Location: C:\Program Files\Bra...\BASFND.sys"

Windows suggests to uninstall the program or device that uses this driver and check the publishers support site to get a digitally signed driver.

The problem is that I have no idea of which program or hardware is using this driver. All the drivers I have installed in my computer are from the computer manufacturer.
I have also been at Broadcoms homepage and there is plenty of things to download there. But I dont want to ruin anything.

Suggestions on what to do?

System: Windows Vista 64
 

Answer:Windows requires a digitally signed driver

Broadcom is your onboard ethernet, I don't see why it would suddenly complain unless there was an update.:confused You can disable driver signing but it only cures the symptom and not the cause.

I recently purchased a new pc that came with win vista 64 bit premium home installed. I am now reloading all my old programs and I keep getting ?windows requires a digitally signed driver" error message. I also can't seem to play my old movie files, all of which played fine when I had Win XP. Apparently Vista does not want me to make my own decisions, so I am wondering how I might go about disabling all this extra secure vista crap. Can I go into Control panel and disable the BitLocker Drive Encryption? Or do I need uninstall 64bit and install the Vista 32 bit? Would that be a smooth transition? Would all my stuff work again if I had the less securitized 32bit Vista? Thanks for any help you may provide.
Regards,
William

Answer:windows requires digitally signed driver

Welcome to the Vista forums

1) You don't want to disable UAC (User Account Control) as it does a lot to protect your computer from various malware. If you really feel the urge to turn it off, then you can in control panel in the User Account section. Once turned off, you'll get the red shield in the bottom right saying it's disabled. Disable security warnings by opening security centre and going to "change how security centre warns me" or something and choose the "no warnings" option.

2) Just download the Vista codec pack (just Google it and you should find it) and DivX and you should have no problems watching videos.

3) You can install unsigned drivers on Vista 64 bit, do this by running an elevated command prompt (right click on command prompt in Start menu and click "run as administrator".

Type this and press enter bcdedit /set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

When you reboot, you should be able to install unsigned drivers.
Also, I looked on the HP website for your computer, and it has 6GB RAM, so going to Vista 32bit would only allow you to use about 3.5GB RAM. I also saw it only has an Nvidia 6150e onboard graphic card. Are you using this? As if you upgraded this to a graphic card, you'd notice better performance on Vista as well.

Hello,
I'm at my wits end. Anyone who can help would be my hero.

Acer 5253 laptop, Win7 Home Premium 64bit SP1, AMD C-50.

Trying to use a USB mouse. I have 3 logitech mice. None work because hidclass.sys and hidusb.sys are not digitally signed. If I f8 and disable driver signing enforcement, all 3 mice work, so I'm pretty certain that's the issue.

Tried "Update Driver" via device manager. Windows determined that I already had the best driver and wouldn't do anything.

Logitech does not furnish drivers for Win7. They rely on the native drivers.

Acer does not furnish mouse drivers. They refer you to the manufacturer of the mouse.

Tried copying the files in question from a 64bit machine that showed them to be digitally signed. Renamed the ones on my machine and pasted the ones from the "good" machine. Resolved nothing.

chkdsk /r found problems and repaired them. Didn't help.

sfc /scannow found problems that it could not resolve. Looked in CBS.log and found no references to either of the sys files in question. No resolution.

System Restore only had one restore point, and it was from 2 days ago. Problem was already noticed by then. I suspect that it's been this way since I purchased the laptop a couple of months ago anyway, but if there had been a restore point back at the very beginning, I'd have tried that.

Windows Vista x64 decided to implement a 'security measure' by which all drivers must be 'digitally signed' to be allowed to install and run. I have a program which is compatible with Vista and x64 bit operating systems, however as its drivers are not digitally signed I cannot run it correctly - I recieve the message 'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' and access to the driver is blocked.

Is there a method of bypassing this?

Answer:'Windows requires a digitally signed driver' - How can I bypass this?

When you boot your system hit F8 and you can bypass it there. You will have to do this every boot. There are a couple applications out there that will do this for you but the names escape me right now.

Install went well and all seems to work OK other than this problem disabling the Driver Signature Enforcement.
Going to settings does not work. I can use option 7 at boot-up but at install time the OS keeps telling me that it blocked the unsigned driver. I do not want to keep the OS in test mode.
Does anyone have any other Ideas other then signing the driver myself?

If you are running Windows 8.x why are you posting in the XP forum instead of the Windows 8.x forum which is here:
 
https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/209/windows-8-and-windows-81/
 
 
For Windows XP and those peculiar folder names here is an interesting explanation:
 
When some programs (including Microsoft programs) install things, it may create a temporary folder consisting of 20-30 random letters and numbers or random numbers and letters in the root drive of the volume with the most free space.
This explains why sometimes the folders are on your C drive or on some might be on another drive - which one has the most free space?
For example you may see a folder similar to or called:
D:\9470bb12e8a4f3447657236478e41c5
There may be other folders and files under that main temporary folder such as amd64 and i386.
These should normally be removed when the installation is complete, but sometimes they are not - especially if the installation fails.  They are harmless but annoying.  

You may think something is wrong when there is not or be afraid the files are really needed.  To avoid confusion you can delete the temporary folders.
If your installation failed or the installation does not delete the randomly named folder when it completes running and you run the installation again, the installation again will make another randomly named folder.  Sometimes you will see several folder like this and they can all be deleted.

Hello,
I'm running Windows 7 x64 since October without any problems. Yesterday I had to change the CPU cooler (and I cleared the CMOS) I found out that my TV tuner (twinhan DVB-T) drivers weren't installed anymore. I don't know if those two actions are linked somehow cause I had a system update from windows update in the same day before my discovery that could have changed some kernel configuration, wanted by MS of course.
The problem with those drivers was that they're not signed so I had to enable Test Mode with a tool dseo13b.exe and everything was working just fine.
Now this! I've run out of options I don't know what to do anymore.
I tried to enable test mode from tools, command line, disable the signature control from registry and services. NOTHING they won't load. I also tried to sign the driver with this guide but it continues to be read as not digitally signed even thought it clearly is from a verification from Microsoft WDK.
So every time I boot the system I get an error that says the .sys driver could not be loaded because it's not signed and I have to either cancel the sys from system32 folder thus it won't load at all or press f8 and disable the signature enforcement control which makes the driver work, but it only applies for the current session. At the next restart I'm back to the start.
I found a "script" called ReadyDrive Plus that automatically selects that option in f8 on boot but I DON'T KNOW WHY since I have Linux installed too ... Read more

I have a program that has a driver for Windows 7 x64. For various reasons this driver is unsigned. I know the manufacturer and it's safe. I know that I can put computers into test mode to load the unsigned driver but I'm concerned that mode allows any other unsigned driver to load.

Is there a way to allow only one specific unsigned driver to load in 64-bit windows? For example can I sign the driver myself, add that certificate to the master certificate store, and then use that driver without having to enable test mode? Or does it not work like that?

Please what steps can I take to solve this compatibility issue? I am having an issue with peer guarian on my new 64 bit Vista home premium system. I intalled the peer guardian 2 software but when I try to run it, I see a warning about an unsigned driver problem. PLEASE How can I install peerguardian on my new x64 Windows Vista OS and have it running as normal like on an XP system.

Answer:Peer Guardian (Unsigned driver Warning)

64 bit doesn't allow you to use unsigned drivers. You have use the F8 key when you boot up and select where it says Allow Vista to use unsigned drivers. You have to do this every time you boot up though I believe.

Answer:OCZ Revo Drive 3 and 64 bit unsigned driver problem.

So I have finally called the OCZ Technical Support.
I made it work with their help.
My steps were:
1. Boot with the Windows 7 Enterprise MSDN DVD installation (I could use other version but it's a work PC)
2. When it came to loading drivers I had to load 32-bit drivers first, then I had to format and partition OCZ
drive (loading 64-bit would not create system partition).
3. After partition was created I loaded 64-bit drivers (both drivers were from OCZ website)
http://www.ocztechnology.com/drivers...voDrive_3_X2_/
4. Continued with Windows installation. The process was longer than expected and locked at one point but reboot
fixed it and now I have a working PC with 64 bit OS and 24GB of memory; smoking fast.
Afterwards I set BIOS to boot from OCZ drive and plugged in my other SATA drivers - one with OS 32 bit.

I hope this helps the next guy who has the same problem. Thanks forum for all the help and pointers.
Overall it may be the Windows installation media that does not like "WHQL approved and signed"

I've been running around trying to get our drivers certified because I'm told all over the internet that they won't work on W7 64 bit OS because they are not signed/certified. I just watched a guy install them on his W7 PRO 64 bit machine and the only problem he had was the conventional "this driver is unsigned" window. He told it to install anyway and it works fine. That is, the driver installs and the product works. To my knowledge, and his, he does not have any special programs installed to defeat driver signing. Why would it work?
Thanks.

This has been a known problem for 3-4 years as I search the internet for solutions.

I have found several places that point me to instructions on how to boot my Windows 10 into safe mode or a mode that allows the installation of unsigned drivers. Every time I attempt to restart while holding the shift key, my computer goes into a circular reboot where it tries to "create a safe configuration" or some words to that affect. It will reboot sometimes dozens of times, and then either after I power off for several seconds or sometimes not, it will reboot to windows normally or the last know good configuration, I am not sure.

But never can I get to a screen that allows me to choose what special boot conditions I need, like I find in many instructions for disabling driver signing.

My computer is fast, because I have a SSD as the OS drive. As I am typing this, I wonder if the BIOS has the fast boot option selected. I am going to go ahead and post this and then go check that.

One last thing, I was able to get the computer booted into Test Mode by starting a command line in administrator mode and typing Bcdedit.exe -set TESTSIGNING ON. However, I am about to turn test signing back on, because I really thought I lost the computer and was going to have to boot it from media but finally was able to get it to boot by rapidly hitting the F8 key. But Test Mode would not allow the driver to install. It still aborted in the middle of the install.

That doesn't seem too reasonable now does it? Can someone from levono pass on this info as I believe the "Tech" person didn't quite understand what I was talking about, since she asked me to replace my speakers as a suggested resolution. The 4.76.0.0 version of the driver needs to be checked for a valid signature.

I recently got a docking station for my laptop (Dell precision M65 w/WinXP Pro SP3 all updates) and when I plugged it in (after all the plug-n-play stuff detected the new docking station stuff), the mouse plugged into the dock USB port would not work (it worked fine previously when plugged into the laptop USB port). I undocked and plugged the mouse back into the laptop's port but it still didn't work.

I went into the device management applet and and tried to update the driver. There was nothing under "Mice and other pointing devices" except the PS/2 touchpad. Under "Human Interface Devices" there was an entry called "HID-Compliant device" If I deleted that device and then did a "scan for hardware changes" I would get the "found new hardware" popup in the tray and then breifly see "Dell USB Optical Mouse" during which the mouse would work but within 2 or 3 seconds it would switch to "HID-Compliant device" and then inform me that my hardware was ready to use at which point the mouse stopped working.

After much screwing around with the device manager and various other USB mice, I found that I could use the "Update Driver" right-click menu item to force the driver to "HID-Compliant mouse" by bypassing all the "Automatic" stuff. This resuted in a working mouse, but I have to do this every time I turn on the laptop.

"Not digitally signed" means Microsoft have not tested this driver and verified it to be compatible with Win XP.  This does not mean it will not work, you should click on the "continue anyway" to install your print driver.  If this is a concern you should check the HP web site for newer driver tested by MS.Kim

Hey,

So I just upgrade to Vista x64 and 4GB of memory (courtesy of OCZ).

However, when installing the x64 version of MagicDisc/MagicISO I get the following error:

Can I get around this?
 

Answer:Required Digitally Signed Driver?

Uhmmm... yes, you can by pressing F8 at boot time and choosing to ignore the warnings about unsigned drivers, but you have to do it each and every time you boot. There is a way to permanently disable that driver signing requirement but I'm leery to give out the info anymore since it hosed a few people's machines recently.

It wasn't my fault that they chose to continue using shitty old drivers, but they blamed me for the mistake they made anyway.

Vista x64 is a more secure and stable OS than the 32 bit version, and that's one of the primary reasons why: the driver signing requirement. Disabling it or 'getting around it' will more than likely end up causing you issues at some point.

Google can find the specific method to disable the signing requirement permanently, or a search here might find it since it's been posted about 3 times over the past 4 months or so.

Good luck, either way...

Hi, I finally have my File System mini-filter driver working great, and tested it a lot on Vista 64-bit using the testsigning boot option. All was fine.

However, when I turn testsigning OFF and try to start the service (the driver), I get the StartService failed with 577 - windows cannot verify the digital signature. Note that the driver in INSTALLED, and the Registry is updated, etc. I just can't start the service (even when running as Admin).

It is signed using a Microsoft cross-certificate, based on the original certificate issued by GlobalSign, as directed in MSDN. You can examine the certificate using the driver's properties, and all looks fine.

I also tried installing the certificate, but that made no difference. This should all be correct, except that it doesn't work!! Any idea what is going on here? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I thought I was all done with this project, but since it doesn't work, I am currently screwed. THANKS!

I am having a heck of a time. I have installed Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit and the ASUS P5QC mobo I have came with an unsigned 64 bit Atheros AR8121/AR8113/AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet Controller
driver.

I called ASUS tech support and talked to them and as of this time, they have only a beta version of the 64 bit signed driver. Vista is not accepting the driver and is considering it as unsigned, so I am left without a computer that can connect to the net.

I have searched hi and low all over the internet to see if I could buy a wired ethernet adapter which has a 64 bit signed driver, but all of the ethernet cards I have been able to find are only compatible with the 32 bit version of Vista or they only have unsigned drivers for their ethernet cards. This is really frustrating!

Does anyone know here WHO (what manufacturer, make, model) of a wired ethernet adapter card 10/100 or 10/1000/1000 (that does not cost a fortune - is retail version, not industrial or commercial)
I might be able to purchase that has the appropriate signed drivers - or

MAIN Problem #1:

Hi I'm wondering if anyone knows if i can find a Microsoft Certified Display adapter/video card driver (are those the same thing?) for my :
ASUS AGP-V7100 Geforce2 MX video card.

runnig win98/SE on a VIA chipset

The reason i ask is because when i look at my drivers through the DirectX diagnostic tool 's display tab it shows my driver as 'nvdisp.drv' and in the 'notes' sections adds :

" The file nvdisp.drv is not digitally signed, which means that it has not been tested by Microsoft's Windows Hardware Quality Labs. You may be able to get a signed driver from the manufacturer of the hardware device"

but when i look through the ASUS home page i can't find my video card. I know my driver is from NVIDIA and i've found the right page to update from them but i'm also wanting to update my chipset driver from VIA and they warn of compatibility problems with NVIDIA so i'm looking for a "signed" "certified" or "standard" adpater/driver?
[current driver listed as ASUS AGP-V7100 SDRAM v12.60 in the device manager]

Hi all, Following device:ThinkPad E531Graphics: Intel HD 4000System: Win7 Pro Following problem:1) Approx. 2 month ago a windows update caused a problem with the hdmi at my laptop. There was no connection to the TV possible anymore (I tried the TV, the cable and the hdmi device already).2) I installed a new driver (origin: Lenovo support page). Result: Windows messages that the driver is not digitally signed...Hence, the device "vga save" was set. What I've already tried, everything as admin:1) look for older drivers: Got only one and it didn't work2) Tried to install a driver directly from Intel: Didn't work3) Tried to disable the signing (GPEdit.msc -  code signature ...). Here I had the problem that I even have no line with the code signature to set the ignore property4) Tried to install the drivers (Intel and Lenovo) in the testmode. The waring message about unsigned drivers came5) Tried to create a certificate. Here the cmd said the command is not known.6) Tried to install the drivers (Intel and Lenovo) after setting the "TESTSIGNING" off (BCDEdit). The waring message about unsigned drivers came My question:Any ideas or similar experiences?I can not believe that the Lenovo or Intel drivers are not signed. But why Windows does not accept them?Is the available update to Win10 an option? Generally: Failure F40 (the failure is 40 cm in front of the monitor) is not excluded  Thank you very much in advance.Regards,Stefan

OK, I have come across 3 methods to disable driver signing with the bcdedit program on various websites:
bcdedit.exe /set testsigning on/off
bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks on/off
bcdedit.exe -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

What are the differences between them and which one should I use? Oh, how do you re-enable driver signing for the DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS method, if I use it?

My harddrive went out and I put a new one in. It was a brand new drive and I loaded Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit from my laptop's recovery disk that came with the inital purchase. When I started to add the drivers 2 of them came up as unable to verify the signatures. Most importantly the driver for my Wifi adapter, which is an Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN says this. Windows refuses to run it in that state. So I have no internet and it says that the adapter is not installed or is disabled. When I go into the Device Manager the adapter is there with a yellow "!" and has an error code 52 (for unsigned driver). It shows installed and enabled though

I installed the driver from the intial driver disc and it says unsigned, I was able to get the latest driver from Intel's website and that too says it can't verify the digital signature.

When I boot into the F8 screen and disable driver enforcement I am able to get online.

I'm not sure if this is related or not, but regardless of how I boot, Windows updater and troubleshooters do not work.

I'd appreciate any help.

Hello, I have Windows 10 (64 bit) and all the latest Windows + Lenovo updates. The SSD's are Samsung 850 EVO (system) and Samsung 840 EVO (data). Since a few weeks ago, I started seeing a pop-up message, whenever I boot the computer. It says that "A digitaly signed driver is required". Also, the Samsung Magician software reports, that AHCI Mode is deactivated and SATA Interface is N/A. Does that mean that my system is not running on full performance?

I have x220 with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Device manager shows under Storage Controllers "Ricoh PCIe SDXC/MMC host controller," but there is a yellow triangle with "!" and a Device Status Code 52 message "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device." I checked in C:\Drivers\WIN\Multicard and found two *.cat files--which, I understand, are required to confirm digital signature. Each of them (ridisk.cat and risdxc.cat) has a signed and valid certificate! So what is going on? Will the card reader work? Is there something wrong with how Windows 7 is treating the Ricoh driver, which I downloaded from the Lenovo site? Why should I be getting this grief?

Hi,

This is my first post on these forums, so please excuse me if anything is wrong.

Details of the problem: I have a Sony VAIO laptop that runs Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I recently downloaded the same version from digital river that has SP1 included and installed it on my laptop. I installed the drivers that I had downloaded from sony's esupport site which went fine. After I rebooted and tried to install the rest of the drivers, I started getting the Code 52 error: Windows cannot verify the signature of this driver. I've seen that every driver can be installed immediately after the system has been booted the first time (after a clean install). Once rebooted, it starts giving the code 52 error. I can't install my iPhone drivers (through iTunes) or PS3 utilities because of this. I'm wondering what changes during the first reboot. I must also say that these very same drivers were used on the previous build of Win 7 HP that I was using except that it did not have SP1 integrated.

Has anyone had a similar experience? I know that the digital signature check can be disabled using bcdedit.exe but I want Windows 7 to work the way it should: it should stop me from using unsigned drivers while installing signed drivers correctly. Does any one have any clue to what's going on with my Win7 on my laptop?

Answer:Driver Digital Signature error when using signed drivers (Code 52)

Hi ajayav, Welcome to Sevenforums.

Boot into Advanced Boot Options and disable driver signing checking.

The Advanced Boot Options screen lets you start Windows in advanced troubleshooting modes. You can access the menu by turning on your computer and pressing the F8 key before Windows starts.

Disabling driver signature enforcement has helped a lot of users in fixing the issue.

You may also delete the USB "Upper Filter" & "Lower Filter" Entry and check if that helps.

Is there any possible way for me to install Windows 7 64-bit on my old PC using unsigned SATA drivers?

Hi-

While I am not sure about how to use unsigned drivers during install, I may have a workaround:

Go into the Computer's BIOS and look around for any option relating to IDE compatibility mode. It can also Appear as an option between AHCI or IDE. Select IDE.
Hope that helps!

I have a 2-year old Compaq Presario FX700 monitor connected to a new system with WinXP Pro/nVidia GeForce FX5200. The current screen resolution is 1024 x 768, with 32-bit color & a 75hz refresh rate. The overall display and sharpness if fine. The only problem is the slightly annoying way the on-screen display does not "fit" precisely into the display area for the monitor. The left border of any window is slightly angled to the right, yielding a black margin from the top to mid-screen. The right border parallels the left.

The current drivers for the monitor are the generic ones that reside in the Windows System Folder (in the device manager, the monitor is simply identified as a Plug and Play monitor).

In hopes of correcting the problem, I downloaded the XP drivers for this model directly from the Compaq web site, but when I attempted to update the drivers, I was greeted with a message stating that the drivers I was about to install were not digitally signed, and that I risked system stability if I were to continue.

Suggestions, anyone??
 

Answer:Unsigned drivers for Windows XP

Just go ahead with the installation...that basically means that MS hasn't gotten around to testing the drivers on every single system configuration available, but I haven' heard of anyone having any troubles with those drivers yet.

But the problem you're having seems to be in the monitor itself...are there any buttons on the monitor? Usually you can change the height and width of the screen directly through the monitor to fine-tune it, as well as some other options.

Yesterday i installed the Everest home edition and after the installation and during my first use, i got an error from windows saying that the program tried to install unsigned drivers and the current version of windows i'm using does not allow any unsigned drivers.

As expected none of the sensor information were present in Everest except for the CPU temp. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of this? I heard that there is a boot option to avoid this. Any help would be appreciated

Hi,

I needed to install rivatuner on my machine in order to regulate the graphics card's fan speed, but Windows 7 64bit Pro wouldn't let me install it, claiming the driver was unsigned.

I had followed some directions online:

"These two commands alone worked great for me on Win7-64:
bcdedit -set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS
bcdedit -set TESTSIGNING ON"

and I was allowed to install the driver but now I have "Test Mode Windows 7 Build 7600" imprinted on the bottom right of my monitor.

Can I get rid of this imprint and still keep the rivatuner driver?

Thank you

Hello everyone:

This is my first post on the Windows 7 forums.
I currently have an old P4 running 32-bit Windows 7 RC. I don?t think I can put 64-bit on that machine, but I am considering 64-bit on the retail version when it is released in October. I tested about thirty 32-bit shareware and freeware applications on 32-bit Windows 7 RC and they all work well.

My questions concern 32-bit drivers and unsigned 32-bit and 64-bit drivers on Windows 7 64-bit retail.

I have seen references to a BCedit command. I ran Bcdedit /set Bcdedit nointegritychecks ON on my Vista SP2 machine and it ran successfully. I have not tested what it will let me do as I now have no Vista driver issues.

Here are my questions:

Which of these is the correct command to disable the signature check on Windows 7 RC?

bcdedit /set loadoptions DISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

bcedit ?SET TESTSIGN NO

Is there any reason to use the correct command rather than using F8 during the boot process?

Does the correct command work for both unsigned 32-bit and unsigned 64-bit drivers on a 64-bit Windows 7 system?

Is the correct command useful on both 32-bit and 64-bit Windows 7 for driver signing issues generally?

I assume the command works for only 1 boot cycle. Given that, is there any reason to run a command to re-enable the driver signing check if one reboots again after the driver installation?

Is there any other solution other than third party software, which I would prefer to avoid as ... Read more

Answer:Unsigned drivers questions on 64-bit Windows 7?

Welcome to the forum.

Lots of good questions there, I'd encourage you to search for 'driver signing' using the search feature, there are quite a few good threads on the matter already.

All of your questions have been addressed in other threads. Bear in mind that there is a way to 'self-sign' drivers so that F8 doesn't need to be used every time you boot.
