[SOLVED] windows won't load after driver update- xp

Question: [SOLVED] windows won't load after driver update- xp

I have Power Suite on my computer and it said I had 6 outdated drivers which I updated. Now my Windows won't load. It gets to my desk top background, but can't even load the program icons. Then it starts the same process all over. I'm sure one of the updated drivers is the issue, but I can't get the computer to start in order to try System Restore. What can I do? I'm not very computer savvy, so go slow..

Thanks!

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] windows won't load after driver update- xp

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: [SOLVED] windows won't load after driver update- xp

This is the reason it is best to get the driver from the manufacturer website. Most Driver Finder software will recommend incompatible drivers.

I see no beneficial reasons to using Power Suite software.

Boot the PC into Safe Mode. Once logged in run a System Restore

Restart the PC > repeatedly tap F8 during boot > at the Advanced Options choose Safe Mode

I just got my new computer a few days ago and I've been downloading the usual drivers, updates etc. for it. The graphics card is GeForce 6800 GT, so I downloaded the latest driver (61.77) from www.nvidia.com. This worked perfectly until I found out there were further "updates" - and the stupidity of what I did should become apparent now - located here: http://3dchipset.com/drivers/beta/nvidia/nt5/index.php.

Following the flimsy advice that I found on another forum site, I went for the 62.20 download. I can't remember precisely when things went wrong after this, but I think the next two or three restarts were successful.

The current situation is: I switch on the computer - it gets as far as the screen where it says Windows did not start successfully. There is a 30 second timer counting down, and the options are:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally

The first three options start a series of lines down the screen which read "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\Syste m32\DRIVERS\" and then after "DRIVERS" there will be a *.sys file, e.g. ACPI.sys. After the last line the computer freezes.

"Last Known Good Configuration" makes the screen go black and it stays like that. "Start Windows Normally" freezes the screen, including the timer, and it stays like that. The only options from here are the power on/off or reset bu... Read more

Answer:Can't load Windows after driver update

Well, if this is a result of your driver installation then you need to uninstall it. You can select Safe Modem W/Networking and uninstall the driver that way, after that everything should be okay. If not, since its a new install, I'd reformat and start over.

Cheers!

Can anyone tel me what the error is and how I can fix it/install the new driver.

Answer:Windows XP Printer Driver Update failure to load

You'd be better going to the Brother website rather than rely on the Windows Update Site click here If the printer works OK though why bother?They apparently posted a nVidia Graphics driver as a critical update. Great if you don't have an appropriate nVidia card.

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

Make sure you have SP2 installed. You can find out by going to start => run and typing winver or by going to your system properties (windows key + pause/break key). It's also advised you go to Windows update and make all latest critical updates.

I'm having a problem with Windows Update. When I go to access the update site, it says done but with errors on page. Nothing shows up at all, just a blank screen. I have a feeling it has something to do with all the changes I had to make to get rid of lots of spyware/malware. If anyone could offer some thoughts and possible solutions, I'd really appreciate it. I haven't been able to update Windows in quite a while.

I am trying to load Windows XP Home Edition on a new drive in a Gateway TA1 Tablet PC. I've read lots and lots of info on doing this and I think I've got the process right. I know that XP does not come with any native SATA drivers and that the drivers have to be downloaded separately and then loaded using the F6 option when prompted by the Windows XP installation. I have downloaded several SATA drivers from tips given in the various forums I have scanned and created the floppy disk (I have an external floppy drive for the laptop) as instructed. All that went really well, but I've obviously not found the right driver. I still get the error message that there is no hard drive installed. Does anyone out there know where I can get the proper SATA driver for the TA1? A point in the right direction would be appreciated. Thanks much.

The other day, a blue screen error appeared on my PC about ati2dvag/infinite loop. I looked online for help and came across a number of different forums. Most of the responses stated that possibly my driver needed updating.

From looking at the Display Driver in the Device Manager, I was able to see that I have an ATI Radeon X1550. I went to the amd website to update my driver and whilst doing so, I got a message saying it couldnt locate a specific file. Then the installation wizard appeared and I followed the steps but then I got a message stating that the one I have installed is not digitally signed and it could affect the performance. I had no idea what this meant but the warning message put me off so I cancelled it.

I then tried to open Media Centre but I was unable to watch live TV because I kept getting an error message the video card had an error or was not installed properly so I went back to the Device Manager and the icon on the first drive indicated the device had been disabled (red x) and the second driver indicated the device wasnt responding/working properly (exclamation mark in a yellow triangle) so I reinserted the installation CD and opened setup.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to look at my issue. I just ran into a problem with my computer. My computer is running windows 7 64bit.

I got a new graphics card in today and put in my computer to crossfire. After I booted my computer back up it loaded fine, albeit slow, but crashed while installing new drivers for the card. Since then I haven't been able to get back on to that SSD(boot drive).

I can't access the advanced boot options to roll back the drivers that were installed as soon as the SSD was booted up.

I've tried numerous suggestions that I've found from other troubleshooting threads on the forums including; looking in my bios for a shortcut, pressing f8 twice per second, holding f8 down, pressing f8 as soon as the bios screen goes away in between the system attempting to load.
I just can't get to the advanced boot menu!

Any suggestions?

Edit: I should say that I AM able to load up windows on my storage hdd which also has windows 7 64bit installed; however, it doesn't even register that my SSD is plugged in under device manager or just computer.

Edit 2: This is crushing my life please help! lol

Answer:SSD Won't load my OS after driver update

Boot into BIOS setup to make sure SSD is detected and set first to boot, after DVD drive.

Then boot into Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair several times. It should offer to automate System Restore. If not and it fails to start Win7, boot back into Recovery Options to run System Restore and Disk Check

If SSD is not detected and is under warranty contact it's maker's Tech Support for help to test and if necessary RMA it. Otherwise replace the cables, test the drive using maker's diagnostics followed by Disk Check.

I have a client whose PC I have not had a chance to look at yet. Her issue is as follows...

A week or 2 ago, her PC auto-downloaded the Windows XP updates, and afterwards she was not able to get on the internet from that PC, but confirmed the internet connection was good (XBOX was able to connect). After rebooting, she went to network connections - no LAN connection present. She called Gateway (mfg of PC) who stated they are aware of the Windows XP updates corrupting the NIC drivers and have had "thousands of reports" similar to hers. They emailed her a link to the new NIC driver and advised her to reinstall it. She downloaded it (from work), put on USB stick, brought home, installed w/ no success...still no LAN connection in control panel. As far as I know, she has not re-contacted Gateway. She ran Windows restore back to a date she knew the Internet worked, no sussess, same symptoms. One idea which I haven't had her try yet is to try and ping 127.0.0.1 to verify NIC. I am going to her house to assist tonight and am looking for any input. I did some google searches and was unable to find anything from Microsoft or Gateway. I'm thinking if I can't get her current NIC working, I might just buy her a new one. Has anyone heard of this issue? Any ideas to repair?

Thanks

I have Windows Update set up to automatically check for updates each day. Two days ago it found that "Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - Bluetooth Controller - CSR Bluetooth Chip" needed updating so I accepted this and it came back that it was install successfully.
Yesterday the same thing happened and again I accepted it and it was successfully installed. Guess what, today Windows Update still says "Realtek Semiconductor Corp. - Bluetooth Controller - CSR Bluetooth Chip" needs updating.
When I check in the Device Manager the driver is dated 24/6/2010 version 6.2.71.214 so it has not been updated. If I click "Update Driver" it searches, downloads and installs an updated driver (so it says) but it has not, the date is still 24/6/2010.
Has anyone any suggestions why this is happening and how I can make the new driver install correctly.

Yesterday, I had an important windows update: " Advance micro devices Inc. Driver update for AMD SMBus." The update failed to load 4 different times! So I went to device manager, and in the list it had no such devise. It did list "Universal serial bus controllers". So I do not think it is the same.

Two things strike me as not being right. 1. Why would an AMD driver update be listed as a critical Windows update? 2. On update history, every update that was ever done on this computer has a KB******* I.D. number after it being that it was either successful or failed. The download attempted was listed as Failed, but no KB number after it. I do have the windows update icon in the system tray.

I do know that the wrong people are getting very experienced at attacking computer systems! My concern definitely raises a couple of red flags here.

Could someone please comment as to what may be happening?

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

Answer:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

Answer:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted

Please try the steps below:

1. Uninstall all third-party burning software, such as Nero and Roxio.

2. Perform a Clean Boot to test the result.

Clean Boot

========
a. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.


Note: Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.


b. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
c. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
d. Restart the computer and test the issue.


Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment. If the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

If the issue persists, please contact your computer manufacturer to check if the DVD drive is damaged.

If not, you may need to restore the system to its factory settings.

Hope it helps.

I have a FLEX 215 running the new Creators Update.  After I installed this update, Windows update  keeps offering me the ethernet driver even though I already have this latest ethernet driver already installed.   I tried downloading the latest ethernet driver from Lenovo website and went through setup steps and repair option.  When I checked again it did not says "Windows is up to date and the time".  It kept trying to install the ethernet driver. Is this happening to anybody else?  Please help

I have tried everything I know to do.  I am an IT Pro with 30 years experience and this one has me stumped...
With the July cummulative update to Windows 10 15063, the Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth driver has completely failed.  It will not load and reports it is corrupted or unusable.  Here's what I have tried...
1. Remove and reinstall driver - Fail
2. Ensure latest driver from Dell, remove and reinstall - Fail
3. Download latest driver package from Killernetworking.com - Fail
4. Roll back CU (KB4025342) - Success
5. Reinstall CU (KB4025342) - Installs, but kills the bluetooth driver again
6. Contact Dell Support - Fail - Technician said it's a Microsoft problem and I would have to contact them for support. (Ironically: I just bought this laptop two months ago and purchased a 4year premium support contract!).
7. Roll back CU (KB4025342) permanently - Not possible, as it is managed by our Windows Update Server on corporate domain and would effect everyone.  I could do this, but it would be a last resort, and it's unknown what vulnerability I would expose the rest of our W10 clients to.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, what did you do to resolve?

Dell:  Can you please investigate and resolve?  All bluetooth functionality is broken so long as this CU is in place.

Thank you!

My Dell GX260 optiplex SFF lost it's sound and its the pc which we are teaching my daughter to use, so it really needs sound to make things more interesting. I downloaded and installed a driver from Dell useing the Service Tag number but the sound still did not work but the pc worked fine. Today I switch it on and it gets past the WINDOWS XP screen and then nothing until a screen comes up saying that it is a bad driver. I tried to get into bios to re-install OS but it will not go into set up F2 or F12. Any help?

Just before windows starts to boot,start tapping F8.
This will bring you to a selection menu,
Use the arrow keys to select safe mode and hit enter.
Should get you into windows without loading drivers.
Go to start/control panel/add remove programs and
see if that driver is listed and uninstall it.
Reboot.

.....and following on from my earlier problems with 'Error message 0x00000077B' (12 March 11.17) I am still rebuilding the old XP OS on a new ASUS P8 Z77-V-LX M/B. It's brought up some interesting intergenerational issues.
The latest one with no get-around I can find yet, involves the on board Realtek ALC887 8Ch HD audio driver.
This is loaded from the m/b CD with no fuss, but in the device hardware manager it shows with a yellow question mark and the dialogue says that the driver is not loaded, consequently, on start up I get asked to fix the hardware problem every time.

I've disabled the hardware.
If I attempt o load the driver, I get the blue screen of death and a long explanation as to why Bill Gates has just saved my life.

I have just noticed that, on the Realtek site that the driver for the ALC887 is for Vista and above, which answers my first question. The motherboard/OS are not compatible, BUT TechSupport Guy will have a workaround, Yes??
 

Answer:Solved: Audio Driver will not load

deemac12...

Have you tried the Asus download site for your motherboard to see if an XP friendly version of the driver exists on that site?

I hate to say this, because it's so hit and miss, but, if you can't find an XP driver for your m/b sound, you may have some luck with Iobit DriverBooster or one of the others like DriverMax. I have DriverMax, and it is a sort of an annoying program in that it is constantly being upgraded and will not run unless the upgrade is applied. This means uninstalling the program and then installing the updated version . Also, it will only allow non paying users to upgrade 2 drivers a day. Last time I checked the Iobit installer was a mine field, laced with all kinds of extra programs that will install unless you are able to determine how to uncheck them. Still, when you just need one driver, maybe this is the answer for you.

Update - 9/8/15

Fixed by reinstalling Windows fresh (Again).

I think the problem was caused by installing Windows linked with my Microsoft account and then switching that to a local user. My Microsoft account was registered for the insider program so perhaps I was receiving the fast updates and switching to a local account put me on slow updates which got Windows Update muddled in the confusion.

Original Post

Windows Update appears to be stuck/broken. It displays this loading animation even when left alone for an entire day (See screenshot). All the other panels such as Windows Defender will display their available options, it is only Windows Update that will not show.

This is a clean install of Windows 10 Home.

I have made some alterations to the service configuration, disabling what I had been advised as unnecessary services. I have reverted as many of those changes as I could remember but it is a possibility that one of those changes caused this.

Background Intelligent Transfer service is "Running" and set to "Automatic (Delayed Start)".
Windows Update service is "Running" and set to "Manual (Trigger Start)".

8 Aug 15 - Edit: I have cross referenced services with another computer with an unaltered fresh install of Windows 10 Home. No difference in service configuration was found.

Internet connectivity is stable. Network profile is "Public". No alterations have been made to the default network configuration.

Hi,

Today I tried to use Crackle to watch a vid, the original tip that something was off. And it still claims I have no flashplayer.
I went to Adobe download site via google search in browser bar for "IE Flashplayer" this time it has an OS and Browser selection choice, and when I click download it shows the alert at the bottom of the page then switches pages before I can choose to "allow once" the next page runs for a bit then tells me there is a problem loading flash player. Is there a setting or something I can do here? Or do I have to wait for the V?M section to catch up with me?

First issue is that I need to use a specific older driver for my AMD graphics card and windows 10 continues to update the driver automatically and causes my system to crash. I've gone through {Control Panel-Devices & printers}, selected my machine, then right clicked to Device Installation Settings and selected "no, let me choose what to do". This has no effect as windows continues to update the driver daily or anytime I search for updates. Is there a specific port I can block or cmd line to run?

Second issue, on the windows update window, the feature is frozen on Service Pack 1 for MS Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-bit edition @ 61%. It's been like this for a week. I've restarted the machine several times and seems to do nothing. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Heya. I've had a couple different posts on here because of some pretty mad malware. Basically, my comp won't load to the login screen, so another member and I determined it was best to do a fresh install.

Now, I have a recovery console on my hard drive (forgot what program made it) and I have the recovery CD. The hard drive recovery will accept my raid drivers and send me through, however, when I try to get to recovery from my DVD it gives me the old fatal error oooooo7xb or what not. Of course I need to utilize the DVD version to install windows, and believe it or not I'm using the same floppy I used when it work. I did mess with my BIOS settings to get something else to work, so now I'm stuck.

Can i do a clean install from windows(safe mode works, regular mode won't) or is it absolutely best to do it from Dos recovery?

My PC sometimes takes ages to boot, like it's looking for a missing driver - then it eventually times out and boots windows. I go to the control panel list of hardware and there is a little exclamation mark next to a "Multimedia Audio Controller". I produce music and there's three pieces of kit that may need one

Now, all my multimedia audio controllers' drivers have loaded:

My Soundcard
Midi interface

The only one that doesn't show up on the hardware list is a midi controller / fader box thing. But it works absolutely fine, it is recognised in the USB Unplug / Eject hardware thing in the systray and I've pointed to its driver when trying to update the one that Windows says is missing. So I'm certain it's not for the midi controller.

If I don't know what piece of kit the driver is missing for, how can I update it? Windows searches for one and hasn't got it, and it doesn't give me a clue as to what it is. I disable it but every time I boot it says "Found new hardware" and it looks for a driver.

I have re-installed soundcard drivers with latest version and still no luck.

One theory I have: my motherboard comes with onboard sound Ė could the computer be trying to load this or something???

In the device manager there is a Symantec Network Adapter that isnt functioning because "windows cannot load the drivers for this device" . I have been ALL over the web trying to find this device but cannot find anything even remotley close. Its an onboard device from an Intel motherboard, dont know if that makes a difference or not. I also have been trying to connect this pc to the internet and it will not connect to the server. I installed a wireless adapter, which says its connecting to the router and the internet, but it will not display any page though firefox or IE. I made sure the HTTP HTTPS and FTP ports were open.. all the IPs Gateways and all line up fine and even ping fine in the command prompt. Net View in the comand prompt runs fine too.

Is this from that adapter not working?? I cant figure it out at all. Any help would be greatful. Btw, this is a friends pc I am working on, so i dont have much history accept she opened a spam mail and could no longer connect to the net though any programs. I ran a virus scan and nothing came back. cleaned the registry with CCleaner, ran spyware detector and nothing came back the usual stuff. Any ideas?
 

Answer:Windows cannot load driver?

Hi

If its a Symantec Network Driver that is missing then best option as its likely that that PC has Norton Antivirus or Security Suite installed to re-install Norton again as that driver is likely part of its firewall defence.

but Uninstall Norton first and run this removal tool,then run CCleaner to remove any old temps and junk, then try the internet again, if it works then great if not do let us know and also let us know what the model of PC is if a DELL, HP etc or if a custom build let us know the Motherboard make and version.

Then install Norton again and make sure the network is allowed throught he firewall.

Other thought if the spam email has added some sneeky malware to this PC it to run this guide and post a new thread in malware forum to have the guys in their check this PC out for malware.

Hi, and thanks in advance...

Much of this is a repeat to other threads, until the graphic driver problem at the end...

(I also have an Ubuntu partition.)

I'd left my mp3 player plugged in overnight + an Asus Xonar DAC in a usb hub, when Windows wanted to do an update and conflict over drivers ensued. Strange, because I've selected for notification before updating. Also, have not been successful installing any new updates since the end of May. Was seemingly a common problem, I checked into it, too busy/lazy to pursue and succeed. This part is confusing...?

Woke up to blasting fans and unplugged everything peripheral. First, tried setting back to restore points prior to that night - twice. Could restart in Safe Mode and with networking. Then, could restart normally - but, shutdowns after 20 minutes or so.

Got crash logs, saw driver conflicts (not found) - saved.

Came here, read threads, did restart at Last Known Good Configuration. Restart - Nvidia Geforce driver not found. Went to Asus site, downloaded and installed driver (not lastest version, but last approved version and not much later than one that was installed).

It then went into a system cycled start/restart/etc. attempting to find driver, fix itself - forced to do shutdown to stop it.

Restarted this morning in Safe Mode, followed your instructions for posting. It's been running in safe mode for about 20 minutes now.

I have an HP Pavillion 7915 machine that I bought used. When I got it it was running Win-XP but I "downgraded" it by reformatting the drive and installing Win-98SE. (I had a good reason.) Everything is fine except that I lost the sound. The specifications for the machine on the HP web site identify the sound device as "Realtek AC97 Audio". The
device manager does show a problem with the sound card, and shows the following error message:

NTKERN.VXD, MMDEVLDR.VXD device Loader(s) for this device could not load the device driver (Code 2).

I realize that this is a very common problem, and have done a lot of trolling around the net for information. Based on what I've learned, I have checked all of the following, to no avail:

Checked that I have the most recent available driver, and that the file I downloaded is compatible with Win-98SE

Verified that I have the most recent version available for the BIOS

The driver apparently needs Direct X ver-8 or later, I have ver-9.0c on the machine.

Ran the Windows System File Check utility to check for missing or damaged system files. No problems found.

Verified that all of the driver files identified in the "driver details" list in the device manager are actually present on the system.

Removed and reinstalled the driver several times.

So, what else is there left to try that I haven't thought of?

The control panel Device Manager:Network adapter:FE575-3Com 10/100 LAN CardBus-Fast Ethernet Properties tab displays "Device status: This device is either not present, not working properly, or does not have all the drivers installed. (Code 10.) Try upgrading the device drivers for this device."

Re-installing the driver (v 2.91), copyfiles displays message "the file addem900.txt was not found'. We manually load this file from c:\windows\system. Update Device Driver Wizard displays "Windows has finished installing an updated driver for your hardware device."

But on reboot the windows networking error message reappears.

The hardware is a gateway notebook Solo 5300 running Windows ME. Until we attempted to install DSL, we never used ethernet. The ethernet driver was not preinstalled by Gateway; this we had to do ourselves. Also, the ethernet port came plugged with a lid which had to be pried out.

I have an older system, but it's a nice setup featuring Gigabytes EP45-UD3P, Q9550 CPU, 8gb DDR2 OCZ platinum, dual 1TB of Seagate hard drives, and EVGA GTX 295 graphics card.

I turn my machine off, and the machine refuses to display. I get to the windows colors screen in Win 7 Pro, and once it proceeds to load the desktop the screen goes black without a cursor, and that's where it stays.
This can be corrected by me reloading the Boot record when turning the system on, however upon powering the system off it does the same thing till I instigate another boot record repair.

I've replaced the hard drives, and CMOS battery. I tried starting the system in safe mode, and it loads fine. I then narrowed the issue down to Win 7 not loading the video driver on startup.

Does anyone know how to correct this issue?

Thank you.

Hi,
I'm a little confused by one of my update options. I was under the impression that windows 7 was using wddm 1.1, and that the wddm 1.0 drivers have been available for quite some time. I checked and the driver I have is wddm 1.0, released 10/28/2008, version number 8.15.10.1590. So why am I being given the option to update to 'pre-release wddm 1.0'? I tried to get more information to check the version number, but I am just redirected to Winqual Help , which doesn't help me any.

I'd like to test out the wddm 1.1 drivers, and I've read that they're available for 7, but I don't think that these are those drivers, unless there is a typo in the driver title.

yes thats right....

wddm is just a driver model...
its up to the manufacture (here intel) to release wddm 1.1 driver
so until then (most likely they wont) they have to release a wddm 1.1

Windows Display Driver Model - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
that should be a good read....

what they mean pre-release means that these drivers are beta drivers (there is a difference between pre-release drivers and pre-release wddm 1.1 drivers)

I am unable to update the Kernel-mode driver framework ver 1.11 for windows 7 for x64-based systems (KB2685811). I get error: 80073712

Also, I am getting BSOD/stop errors in normal mode that say anything from:

I'm not sure if they are related.

Answer:Unable to install Windows Update: Update Kernel-mode driver framework

I, again, apologize for double posting. I figure I should include the host of other issues I'm having. Maybe they can all be inter related.

-my DVD/RW drive, when connected to mother board in ANY SATA slot, causes the BIOS screen to freeze forever. I have disconnected the drive at this time while trouble shooting. I have tried known-good SATA cables so I know it's either the DVD/RW drive or perhaps a driver or mobo failure.

-I have run the memory diagnostic tool in windows. No issues were reported.

-I have NOT run memtest86 because I do not have a disk drive connected.

-I have had stop-errors (BSODS) such as PFN_list_corrupt, System_service_Exception, Memory_management, IRQ_not_less_or_Equal
All of these could be a result of bad RAM.

I have purchased new RAM as a means to fix my problems. It seemed to work for 2 weeks, then the stop errors returned.

I've decided to try and format my laptop today, however I have a frustrating error that keeps occurring and I don't really know what to do.I have an ASUS U43JC laptop. When I purchased the laptop, it didn't come with any CD/DVD's.I've tried to install some of the drivers from the ASUS website, with some of them saying I needed to download the x64 version because what I had downloaded was x32 (even though I'm pretty sure I downloaded the x64 file...)There's one file that I had downloaded, yet I'm not sure what to do with it; it's called U43Jc.216Anyhow, this is the error that pops up when I'm trying to reinstall Windows 7:A required CD/DVD drive device driver 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.Any help would be appreciated!

I have an espon scanner installed no prob and the printer is loaded on 2 other laptops no problem.
Thank for any help.

Combofix should be used as part of a malware removal process, not as a standalone tool. The probability that you are still infected with malware is extremely high.

Hi again all!

I just experienced Windows 7 giving me a "cannot load driver message" [Code 39] for my HP 1260 DVD burner. It is fairly new [less than 30 days], has worked perfect thus far, and now will not work at all.

Can anyone help me to resolve this issue please?

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Just upgraded to Windows 10 on my Ideapad N585. On startup get a message Dolby audio driver didn't load. I seem to remember this issue upgrading from Win 8 to 8.1, but don't remember the fix. Do we have to wait for an updated driver? I have sound, but not sure what driver it's using. (haven't even found drivers yet) Another issue I discovered is that I couldn't turn off the touch pad using Fn+F6. The Elan driver settings do have a box to disable the touch pad when using an external pointing device, though, so that's not a major issue.

For over a week, when I start my laptop, it seems to start normally, then I get a screen that says "updates could not load and changes are being undone, don't turn off my computer'.  Does anyone know what is going on?  I am using Windows 8.1.
 
I have Panda Security, and Anti Super Spyware, both paid for.  I just got rid of Win Patrol free, although I have used it on my old laptop without problems.  I have not purchased or downloaded any other programs.
 
Any ideas how I can find out what is going on?

I had this issue on 2 different PCs, both with Windows 8.1.
It would force me into updates, and then say that the updates were unsuccessful and that it is undoing the changes.
It stayed in a restart loop of 'undoing changes' until I went into Safe Mode (using Shift + F8) and did a System Restore.
I have now changed the settings on BOTH computers to not automatically install update. I don't need that kind of trouble! LOL

Recently Windows updated my Intel HD Graphics 630 driver. A few days later the same driver was released on Dell's driver support page.
Is there any correlation between Windows Update and Dell's drivers? Who does update the drivers Microsoft themselves or Dell needs to release the driver to Microsoft?
As this is the first time when Windows updated the driver is this how the Intel HD Graphics drivers are to be kept up-to-date via Windows Update?

Answer:Windows Update vs Dell Update - Intel HD Graphics 530/630 Driver

ZINGAM,
Referring to the Intel HD graphics driver.
Windows gets code from Intel for the driver and they will implement it in the OS. Dell also gets code from Intel and will release it. Also, Intel will post the driver on their site to download. You can uninstall the Microsoft driver if you choose and install the Dell update driver.

Answer:Should I trust Intel's Driver Update utility or Windows Update?

G'day Rolo,

The difference between the two drivers is that the Windows one is digital signed/tested by Microsoft. I would say that unless the Intel one delivers more benefit than the Windows one, and everything works as expected, then there is no need to update.

You often see this with graphics card drivers too, for example.

I recently installed Windows XP and all my programs on a new hard drive, as the old one would not boot. Last week I received a "Generic host process for Win32 services" error. My machine locked up, and I had to restart. Then I started having issues where Windows would not load or would take a very long time. I am able to start Windows in Safe Mode, but it takes much longer than it should.

Now sometimes when starting IE or Firefox or when surfing, new tabs are started on spammy webpages. Other times, IE or Firefox will not start. I also cannot go to the Windows Update site.

Neither Malwarebytes nor Avast find any instance of infection.

AVG says that it finds 6 infections and repairs 3. Just in case it would help, here is that part of the AVG log file:

This is my 2nd attempt to install a brand new WD4003FZEX in my Windows 7 x64 machine. I assumed the first one was bad, so I exchanged it for another. I am NOT new to PCs, in fact I am ashamed to say I'm a tech with 15+ years experience and this one has me stumped. I have installed countless drives, and this one should be dead easy!

Windows simply says it failed to find the driver. The BIOS does see and correctly identify the drive. The motherboard is a modern Gigabyte GA-Z77-D3H with UEFI, so no problem there.

I would be very grateful to anyone that can help me solve this.

OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
CPU: Intel Core i7-2700K
Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-Z77-D3H
Memory: 32GBCorsair Vengeance (4x8GB) CMZ32GX3M4X1600C10
Graphics Card: EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 550Ti
Hard Drives:
Boot: 256GB SSD: Samsung Electronics 840 Pro Series MZ-7PD256BW
Secondary Drives: WD 2TB & WD 640GB

Answer:4TB WD4003FZEX: Windows 7 Fails to find/load driver

Download the drivers from the manufacturers website?

I recently installed the program Super Utilities Pro to clean up my system a little bit. The next time I turned on my computer I received the following message:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\HWFProt.sys
Status: 0xc0000221
Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

From reading the following post I can tell that I need to uninstall Super Utilities Pro however, I am unable to get past this error message when windows boots up. I downloaded my copy of Windows Vista from my school and so I do not have a boot disk...the files are on the hard drive.

If someone can help, I would really appreciate it. Thanks.

I have spent a few hours with both Microsoft Premier Technical Support and (a very grumpy) Lenovo technician. They have both confirmed that the Windows 8 touchpad driver that is currently posted on the Lenovo site for the U300S does not load properly. It will, as many have reported, disable the touchpad altogether. There seems to be an issue with the loader installing files for both a Synaptics and a Cypress touchpad. This creates an apparent conflict that relegates the touchpad as useless. If you choose to install this driver, I would recommend that you create a store point so that it can be easily recovered. A standard mouse works just fine (albeit without any Win8 functionality). ***Lenovo should pull this damaging driver down from their site until a certified replacement can be prepared.***
