Question: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38) The driver could not be loaded because a previous version of the driver is still in memory.

I have this problem:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)

The driver could not be loaded because a previous version of the driver is still in memory.

and now I am not able to connect any usb device to my laptop making it virtually impossible to use windows 10.
How do I downgrade to windows 7,have enough of the beta testing.
I even have a purchased version of windows 10 pro which I really regret buying, worst investment ever.

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.)

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) <-- This god for shaken message is stopping me from enjoying my computer.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Im practilly computer illiterate so please be easy on the big words and stuff =]

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.

Ok I have done quite alot of searching on here and I have found out quite a few things I have exhausted every friggin resource imagineable. The only thing I have yet to try is the registry edit. Now I pretty much have that down I just have one simple question. When deleting the upper and lower filters...

While in the registry I have found the upper filters on the right hand side. The only problem there is - No lower filters.

Could this be a problem?

Also , do the upper/lower filters need to be removed from the Control set 001 and Control set 002 . Please get back to me ASAP.


Thanks.

Answer:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. (code 39) -- On XP!

Hi

Moved your post to its own thread as the other thread was dealing with Windows Vista and that OS can have different routes to fixing a problem that may not work on yours or cause more issues,


But what you can try is in Device Manager right click the CDROM and choose Uninstall, then reboot and see if the drivers are picked up. If that doesnt work then follow this How to fix missing DVD/CD drives not showing up in windows explorer (easy options and pre-done registry files are at bottom on page, download, unzip and double click to merge with registry) then reboot.

So, My son got the BSOD where he couldn't select the language, so I reformatted and reinstalled a clean version of win 10.

Now, under device manager I get 2 heading of HIGH DEFINITION AUDIO CONTROLLER with both having a yellow exclamation point. When I click on, the details say

"Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39){Bad File}The attributes of the specified mapping file for a section of memory cannot be read.

I have uninstalled both of them and re-started the computer, tried the audio controller troubleshooter, copied the 3 drivers from a working computer and still cannot get rid of the yellow exclamation points.

Just about to throw the computer out the back door and tell him to read a book.

Any ideas?

Answer:windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware code 39 audio

Hey,

And welcome to Tenforums,

Since the version you reinstalled is a fresh install there is only one thing that could cause a driver to fail which is indeed the required installer, if you could list the name and the current version of the driver installed I could take a look and find you the newest driver which should be working, also it might be a good idea to perform a windows update check just incase windows did not update your driver yet, it might fix it by itself. Also performing an uninstall of a driver is often the way to go but it might be another option to completely disable the sound controller and remove any remaining installation files which usually removes after a restart.

I am not sure what I have done, but I have some how screwed up settings with my video card. I have went to Microsoft's knowledge base and found the following: http://www.microsoft.com/resources/...Windows/XP/all/reskit/en-us/prjk_dec_lgsc.asp

When I went there, I spotted my error problem and tryed to resolve my problem with no luck. I have Windows XP by the way. I have tryed updating my drivers and everything.

I also did a Google search on my problem and found, many hits. I saw that some people may have deleted some good files that may have been a result in this error. I believe this may be the cause of my error too. I may have deleted something off my hard drive that could of been of value to my video card.

I do have a ghosted drive though of my System C and was wondering if that reallyu was my problem.... If I really did delete something of value to my graphics card. If it I believe I can easily repair it with my ghosted System C drive with Norton's, but please tell me if you think it isn't

Long story short, I tested a friends graphics card in my homebuilt computer to see if it worked. I took my Ati Radeon 9800 Pro out, and put in this other card, and then replaced the other card back with my Ati Radeon 9800 Pro. Since then, I cannot get the drivers to work again for my 9800.

I have Windows 7, 32 bit. I am positive that I did a fresh install of windows 7, not an upgrade. I cant remember if I installed specific drivers for my graphics card at that time, or if windows did it. All I know is that the card was running good, with two monitors running together. Everything stopped working after I tried my friends card out.

Ive downloaded so many Ati Catalysts, 10.2, 9.3, 9.1, 8.7, 8.1, and also different versions (XP and Vista) and none of them will work. Sometimes it will just say "The current driver is up to date" and its showing the standard VGA graphics adapter. Sometimes it will say "Radeon 9800 PRO installed, reboot now" then when I reboot, it will give me this error
"Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware. (Code 37)" when I check device manager. Basically any driver I try will give me this error.

Basically what I was doing was boot into safe mode, use DriveSweeper to delete all ATI files, then reboot and install different catalyst, then go through device manager to "update driver". Then I would get the error above.

Have you tried removing both entries from Device Manager?

This may not be relevant to a 9800 Pro, but see:

I get the feeling that recent AMD/ATI drivers may not like AGP very much. "Recent" may include the 10.2 ones, which are from February of 2010 (2 digit year,1 or 2 digit month).

Hi,

As you all know, the "Driver" tab of every device inside Device Manager shows a device's name, driver provider and driver version (as shown in the image)

Is there a command line which could list out (in table format) the name, driver provider and driver version of every device (without grouping them within nodes if possible)?

I'm only interested in device, not driver.  I carefully chose the word "device" instead of "driver" because a device can be made up of several driver (files) which could be at different version amongst them.

I've tried devcon (command is devcon find *) but it doesn't match what I'm looking for -- it's showing a lot of things that I don't even know what they are.  And there's no driver provider or version.

I've also treid driverquery, but it lists driver files instead of
device, and doesn't show version number.

Is there other alternatives?
TIA

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!

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

WUDFRd failed to load for the device

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

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

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

Any thoughts?

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

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

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

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

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

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

The driver \Driver\kbdhid failed to load for the device HID\VID_03F0&PID_0324\7&3c64d09&0&0000.

For those affected, the frequency of the error runs anywhere from 10 times a day to once every few weeks.

Re-imaging the PC has no effect but that same image running on another PC with the same hardware can run without ever experiencing the problem. The system I use has not experienced the problem once in over a year.

I have rebuilt the image from scratch and pushed it out to a group of people experiencing the error. It seemed to resolve it for a few months and then the errors inexplicably came back. I've tried replacing the keyboards with completely different models. Again, it seemed to resolve it for a while and then it came back.

Answer:Out of ideas - The driver \Driver\kbdhid failed to load for the device

I know this may sound simple; but have you tried completely uninstalling the keyboard from device manager; then let windows reinstall it? That may fix the issue. If not then post back.

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

It starts with this error:

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\_??_USBSTOR#Disk&Ven_Multi&Prod_Flash_Reader&Rev_1.00#058F63666471&0#{53f56307-b6bf-11d0-94f2-00a0c91efb8b}.

Then moves on to:

Then:
Installing printer driver Microsoft XPS Document Writer failed, error code 0x0, HRESULT 0x80070705. See the event user data for context information.

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.

Finally:

The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x0000001e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff80c5d0d15b0, 0x0000000000000000, 0xffffffffffffffff). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\MEMORY.DMP. Report Id: d35c98fc-b1e6-4003-bed9-f7cdbca575e2.

Running XP I was running Audio Driver 4.92.2.0(Vista) / 3.64.2.50(XP) 2009/04/13 which came in through System Update before it shut down. I installed 4.92.5.0(Vista) / 3.64.6.0(XP)  2009/05/29   Because I wanted these fixes. - Fixed an issue where the built-in microphone never be off when an externalmicrophone was connected. This might cause reverberation. - Fixed an issue where microphone volume level was too low. Now Smart Audio in the Control Panel won't initialize. It just errors out.  I've tried reinstalling. At this point of course I would prefer to go back to the working dirvers, but they came through System Update and I can't figure out if they're stashed on the HD or not.  Does anyone have a link to the Driver Archives so I can download the older one? Thanks in Advance

Answer:Smart Audio broke with Driver Update - Need link to previous driver

Well I tried uninstalling the app and reinstalling, and the download doesn't seem to be complete because it's now saying a required file isn't found. Anyone have a link to the full Smart Audio app? Thanks

Apparently, I am one of many who seem to be having this issue. And just like everybody else, I turned to Google for some answers. Here is my scenario (perhaps gregrocker could point me in the right direction?):

I am running on a laptop with the following specs:

Dell Studio 1735
32-bit Vista Home Premium, SP1
Intel 2 Core Duo, T8100 @ 2.10 GHz
250 GB SATA HDD, 5400 RPM
4 GBs of RAM
256 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
8x Slot Load CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

I downloaded the .iso image of Windows 7 through the software program at Penn State and burned it to a DVD. When I restart my computer and boot off of the DVD drive, I get the Windows 7 Installation interface. As the setup begins, I get an error message that says "Load Driver" across the top of the window, and says "A required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is missing". I tried a few things to circumvent this issue:

1. I swapped out the installation CD with one of the CD's that came with my laptop that contains all of my device drivers. It found one compatible driver for the ATA/ATAPI Controller, and despite selecting it and hitting next, it didn't work.

2. I took the service tag from my laptop, downloaded each and every driver that it's associated with, burned it to an .iso, and swapped THAT out when I tried to install. Again, nothing happened.

3. I mounted the .iso onto an 8GB Cruzer and made a bootable flash drive. Upon trying the install again, I had the same problem.

4. I tried to bu... Read more

Answer:Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

Try extracting the ISO to Vista desktop to run Setup from there.

You can locate the driver in Vista's Device Manager SATA controller Driver info tab.

The fact that it would duplicate the error for USB flash install sounds like a malfunction.

Try removing 2 gb of RAM.

Check BIOS version to see if you have the latest.

Checksum the HASH of the ISO you downloaded to confirm it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/0...vd-iso-images/

Driver environment:

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?

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?

hi, last night i googled something and stumbled upon a thread saying you should always uninstall previous version of drivers when installing a newer version. i kept looking and there is pretty mixed opinion about it. so what actually happens to the previous version when you install a newer one over the top of it, would it not just remain in the driver store in case you need to roll back to that version.??

Answer:Uninstall previous version driver??

Hello Mitchell,

There are different opinions about this. Some drivers require to uninstalling the previous version before installing the new version and others don't do this.

Uninstalling the old drivers is required because they might run in conflict with the newer versions. I think, the best time to wipe the old drivers from computer is when everything run smooth on the new ones and you are sure you won't need to revert to the old ones.

Well, that's my two cents.

Hi - I'm new to this, so please be gentle.....

Over the weekend I found that my Canon Digital camera will no longer download images to my PC. (Yes, it used to work wonderfully!)

Every time I'd plug the camera into the USB port, the PC would not recognize it. I found that the Device Mgr had a message like this "the device will not operate properly because the driver is already loaded in memory - Code 35 (or 38?)"

My thought is that I left the camera plugged into the PC, and then XP went to sleep. While it was sleeping I unplugged the camera to use it. Now when I try to hook it back up I get the message....

I've tried uninstalling the driver and uninstalling the software, but with no luck.

Is there anyone who might have some suggestions on things I can look for or try?

I have Windows XP
Thank you!!!

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7447 and its integrated GPU is Intel HD Graphics 4600. When I download the latest driver online and install it, it works.

This has happened more than twice now, and I did the fixes to disable driver updates in Windows 10.

Please help me.

Driver version should end with 4703 instead of 4531.

Answer:Intel HD Graphics driver keeps on reverting back to previous version

Let uninstall the driver before installing latest version of the driver.

1. Open the Device Manager by typing Devmgmt.msc into Start Menu.

2. Expand Display adapters and right click Intel HD Graphics and select Uninstall. If there is a option to delete driver from drivers store select the option.

3. Restart your computer.

When you log back in open the Device Manager to see if the old version of the driver is installed or not if its installed uninstall it again then install latest version of driver and if needed restart your computer.

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.

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.

Warning: This is gonna be messy.

Okay... So I have a HP dv6000 with Windows Vista Home Premium. Over the past six months it has been suffering from hard drive issues, resulting in crashes. The remedy to fix the crashed hard drive has been to do a complete system restore by booting the computer, hitting F11, and doing a COMPLETE SYSTEM RECOVERY to factory settings.

However, this last time I went to recover to factory settings I got a message saying Error: 10002 - Contact HP if this persists.

Long story short, I have now warranty, and do not want to get the hardware fixed nor the software looked at. I am happy with a barely functioning computer as I have a desktop I primarily use.

Hi.A friend's PC keeps restarting: telephone conversation, so can't "do" anything.Looks like a driver has been corrupted..will see the PC tomorrow, so would be very grateful for any help.

Hey there -

Just a quick question regarding Device Manager. I was updating some drivers and was checking through System Devices and noticed that when I checked the properties on some of the devices ( Intel ICH9 Family SMBus Controller 2930 for example ) it says that there are no driver files loaded for the device.

However when I click the driver tab it lists information as if drivers are loaded. When I try to update the drivers nothing happens so I'm not sure whether the device is working or not - it's telling me two conflicting answers.

Any ideas? THANKS!
- Tagen

Answer:No Driver Files Are Loaded For This Device...

If there were no driver for the controller, you would know it by problems with the computer
That being said, if there are no very small yellow markers by the device in the Device Manager, you are ok.

I was using alcohol 120% and after I use it I did a restart and when turnd it on I could not locate my dvd and cdrw . I found out what my problem was it was Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39).I don’t know how to fix it help.

Answer:Windows cannot load the device driver.

Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file that is corrupt; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry point in another binary file that could not be loaded.
Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the troubleshooting wizard.

Hi! The Thinkpad X1 Yoga 2017/2:nd edition has an OLED panel option. Lenovo's download page for this model, https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/hk/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-x-series-laptops/thinkpad-... , offers a driver "Intel "OLED Panel Driver for Windows 10 (64-bit) - ThinkPad X1 Yoga (Type: 20JD, 20JE, 20JF, 20JG)", 1.0.0.5, 2017/10/02, in the Display and Video Graphics section. In Windows, the device appears as "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver" under "System devices" in the Windows Device Manager. Normally I'd think all needed to drive a display is the graphics driver (e.g. "Intel(R) HD Graphics 620" under "Display adapters") and a monitor file for resolution, frequency and color calibration ("OLED Display 2560x1440" under "Monitors"). So, why do we need an "Intel(R) OLED Panel Driver", and what does this device actually do?

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.

That is the default Windows audio driver, and I don't think it can be uninstalled. Best is to not worry about it and just install the Realtek driver.

Uninstall the Realtek driver or do a system restore to before you installed it.

Hi all, I've got the problem that under device manager there's a device without driver and is thus shown with a yellow exclamation mark.Vendor ID is 1180, device ID is E822, so it seems to be theRicoh PCIe SD/MMC Host Controller. But if I download the "Media Card Reader Driver for Windows 7" from the Lenovo website and install it, the device still doesn't have a driver. The smartcard reader driver also doesn't help. An automatic search of Windows doesn't find a driver. My system is: Lenovo notebook T430s, Windows 7 (64bit), model number 2356GDG. Can anyone post a screenshot of the device manager with all devices listed, so that I can verify that this is the missing device? Any suggestions?Thanks a lot, babidoo

Answer:T430s, device without driver, wrong driver selection or other problem

Hi there babidoo,
 
Was this the driver you downloaded? Media Card Reader Driver for Windows 7
 
It was updated August 13th so it's really new. I would also run TVT System Update as well.
 
Ed
 
*Edit* Also try updating this driver: SmartCard Reader Driver for Windows 7
 
TVT System Update should automatically update both of these for you but you can also just update them specifically by visiting those links.

Also system restore never seemed to work with my raptors in raid 0. I reinstalled my registry back up, made sure all services were set to default and much more. I was installing Joint Operations at the time in which it all began. I have used Error log to find what was wrong but Microsoft does not have a fix.

Hi everyone. I just bought myself a new barebones computer and it doesn't have the driver for the ETHERNET CONNECTION or the USB WIFI ADAPTER I purchased for it.
 
The problem here is that I ran the installer for the WIFI adapter (right off of the CD that it came with) and restart the computer as instructed, but after restarting the WIFI adapter still shows that it has no driver in the device manager.
 
I took like 4-5 screenshots of what I am seeing on my computer to try and make this easier to solve. (Please view attached files)
 
I don't understand why the installer for the driver wouldn't naturally connect the driver with the device that it was meant for?
 
I am on my laptop right now, but can't connect to the internet with my new desktop because there is no Ethernet driver and my WIFI driver apparently isn't correlating with the device it was meant for.

Bought a new Logitech webcam C270 Have installed, uninstalled several times then went online with logitech support and we uninstalled again and then downloaded from their website. In device manager under the tab imaging devices it gives us the error message that Windows can not load my device driver for my Photosmart C6200 or for my Logitech C270 webcam.

We did an uninstall and reinstall and it still says that. The support tech said that is all he could do that I would have to go to Gateway and download my OS driver. Talked to them but they can't help me because it would cost a fortune because my computer is older and not covered under their plan.

HELP
 

Answer:Windows can not load my device driver for my C270 Logitech webcam

Since both devices show as not being able to load the driver, have you tried uninstalling the Photosmart C6200 software as well?
Could be there is a conflict between the 2 drivers.

If that does not help, it could be a problem with the USB port setup, so updating the motherboard drivers[/URL] is indeed a next step.

Hello. I installed a few recommended Windows Updates on 1/15. After the update, install, and computer refresh though, my audio stopped working. I went to Control Panel and tried opening up my audio driver, HT Omega Claro Halo, but the driver wouldn't open. I then checked my Device Manager and found the oh so fun error code 52 associated with my Claro Halo audio driver. You know, the one that says,

"Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

I then rolled back my C drive to a previous restore point I made a few days ago and it was working again which means that something in the update was messing up my audio driver. I re-downloaded the Updates and uninstalled the drivers. I downloaded the latest driver but that didn't work and I am still getting the same error code 52. I know the F8 trick on start-up that disregards the digital signature of drivers but that is only a temporary fix and definitely NOT what I am looking for. I'm looking for a permanent solution. I would appreciate it if someone could help me out here. Thanks.

The disk on my wife’s Dell Inspiron 2200 crashed, so I bought a new one, installed it, reloaded Windows and backed up data. Everything went well with one exception, described as follows:

There were apparently a number of devices whose drivers were not contained on the Windows recovery CD’s provided by Dell. These devices showed up with a yellow question mark in the Device Manager. I went to the Dell website for this computer and found device drivers for all the devices except for the following:

The last two devices with yellow question marks were described in Device Manager as:
Video Controller
Video Controller (VGA compatible)

The Dell website for this computer is: http://support.dell.com/support/dow...mID=INSPIRON 2200&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid=

On this webpage, there was only ONE device driver listed under the Video category. This was R128346.exe. After I installed this driver, the only device remaining with a yellow question mark was “Video Controller”.

What driver do I use for this remaining device, described in Device Manager as “Video Controller”? As I just mentioned, I already loaded R128346.exe, the only video device driver listed. Should I run R128346 again? Would running R128346 a second time damage the installation in some way if it was NOT needed? Is there some other video driver that this website has omitted?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

My PC is a Dell XPS 420 running Windows Vista Home Premium (Service Pack 2) with all available Windows updates. I have also a Dell Studio 1555 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium (Service Pack 1), and an Epson Stylus Photo PX720WD printer. Even when the laptop is within feet of the D-Link wireless router the network connection frequently fails and my network does not show up although those belonging to neighbours do. Most of the time the PC will not connect to the printer and neither will the laptop when the connection drops out. However, when the PC is switched off and I start up only the router and the laptop, the signal strength from the router is at the maximum and the laptop has no difficulty connecting to the internet but it does lose connection to the network as soon as I try to send a document to the printer.
In the PC?s Device Manager under ?Network adapters? the following are listed:
6TO4 Adapter
6TO4 Adapter
6TO4 Adapter
Intel(R) 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection
Isatap.cable.virginmedia.net
Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #2
and all except the Intel(R) 82566DC-2 Gigabit Network Connection have yellow exclamation marks next to them.
Starting at the first 6TO4 Adapter I have clicked on Update Driver Software and each device, down to and including Microsoft 6to4 Adapter #2, is reported to have the best driver software already installed and up to date. However, clicking on Properties on every device gives ?This device cannot start (Code 10)? and clicking on ?C... Read more

Answer:Device Driver Problem or Hardware?

From Msoft
6to4 adapter is a component used for transmitting IPv6 packets trough IPv4 network correctly.
In some scenarios, there will be a code 31 or code 10 error appearing beside this component. A possible reason is, the network adapter doesn?t support this feature. You may update the driver for your network adapter or chipset, and then try to uninstall and reinstall the this component.
To uninstall the component, right-click the item in Device Manager and select Uninstall.
To reinstall the component, in Device Manager, Action ? Add Legacy Hardware ? Next ? ?Install the hardware that I manually select from a list? ? Network adapters ? Microsoft ? Microsoft 6to4 Adapter ? Next ? Finish the wizard.
If the steps above doesn?t solve the problem, your network adapter is not a supportive one for this component. You can completely ignore this error, if there isn?t IPv6 network deployed in the environment. The error won?t affect your system.
To remove the error message, please right-click the Command Prompt and run as administrator, type the command netsh in 6to4 set state disable, press Enter. The component will be disabled and hidden.

Briefly, any attempts to reinstall network adapter driver for onboard component and also for the just-bought-and-installed in PCI-E slot network adapter results in the message: Cannot install drivers. No Intel(R) Adapters are present in this computer.
Details (lots):
Hardware: Acer Aspire M5811 with Win7 Home Premium 64bit Motherboard is a Foxconn P55M01 with onboard Intel(R) 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection
Driver it had at the time it stopped working was 11.2.19.0
Basically the family member who owns this PC stated the network stopped working mid task. (Yes, it was a safe site, they are not that type) Couple of hours on the phone with the internet provider ended with a "The problem is at your end, nothing we can do..." spiel. Understandable once I had the PC delivered to me and went into the device manager to see a row of yellow triangles for every network component.
Rebooted into safe mode with networking. Ran Norton Internet Security. Ran Malwarebytes. Nothing. No internet. Green and orange lights at network port. OK I think. Lets reinstall the drivers. Go to Acer website. Get drivers. Will not install. Says it cannot find any network device. Restart PC and go into BIOS. Onboard LAN is enabled there. Get newer driver from Intel website (nice to have 2 PCs) and same thing.
Fine, enough mucking around. Empty PCI-E 1x slot just begging for a network card. Go buy the Intel(R) Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter. Follow the proper grounding / powered dow... Read more

Hi, I've just removed a faulty DVDRW device from my PC to send away for repair. The remaining DVD ROM drive now doesn't work, and when checking the device manager there is a message: "Windows cannot initialize the device driver for this hardware (Code 37)". I have tried uninstalling/reinstalling the device to no avail, also searching for updated drivers. The device is functional as a Windows boot disk will detect and run at startup. Once Windows is fully loaded there is no entry in 'My Computer'. Replacing the faulty drive with a known functional drive has the same problem - Help!

Have you tried a different IDE cable, rabbitwabbit? Although, MS say "Reinstall or obtain a new driver." click here

Answer:[SOLVED] device driver (code 41)

Hi arrrnold, Welcome to TSF!

There are a couple of ways that might help you with this issue.

Method One: Remove the registry entry

Warning: Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall your operating system.

Please Note: If you had installed multiple CD-writing software products on your computer, you need to uninstall the software products before you remove the registry keys.

1. Click Start, and then click Run.

2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.

3. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Control/Class/{4d36e965-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}

4. On the File menu, click Export.

5. In the File name box, type savedkey, and then click Save.

6. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type UpperFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

Note: If this data type is missing, go to Method 2.

7. Click the REG_MULTI_SZ data type LowerFilters, and then click Delete on the Edit menu. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.

8. Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.


Method 2: Replace the existing driver


1. Click Start, and then click Control Panel.

2. If Control Panel is in Category view, click Performance and Maintenance, and then click System.

2 windows updates ago, I had trouble uploading pictures from my digital camera.  It was fine before the update, and afterwards it wouldn't work.  I tried to update the driver.  MTP USB device driver is the one that was associated with it.  So I tried to update.  It gave error code 37.  I uninstalled the driver 3 times, and reinstalled.  It still isn't working.  This is a Canon digital camera.   Their site says I don't need any drivers.  I downloaded the newest version of their software.  The software works, but My Camera doesn't allow you to upload untransferred images anymore.  It doesn't even pop up.
 
After doing more checking I see that sfc /scannow might be good to run.  I ran it.  It found nothing. 
 
I saw at one site, to do this:  I posted the link, but it won't show up on here in this forum. 
Important: If a USB device is generating the Code 37 error, uninstall every device under the Universal Serial Bus controllers hardware category in Device Manager as part of the driver reinstall. This includes any USB Mass Storage Device, USB Host Controller, and USB Root Hub.>>>  I am a little worried about doing this.  At least my computer is running right, at the moment, besides this error code 37.  I am afraid if I delete every device, then I might not get some to work, when I restart, and it reinstalls.  Is this the best method for fixing this prob...

Answer:MTP USB device driver error code 37

Which update(s?) caused this problem, and on which date were you last able to connect to the camera without problems?
Can you post a list of which updates you had on which date, and post the date when your camera was last able to connect properly and the date when you first plugged it in and found it didn't work?
Also are you able to get to the images on the camera by browsing for them from the file explorer, or is this a matter of the camera's own software not working AND the file explorer being unable to get at the cameras pictures and videos for you?
Would suggest NOT deleting any device from that list because I have a suspicion that some of them are NOT removable devices but actual parts of your computer which just happen to be connected to the rest of the computer by USB like methods. If my suspicions are correct there then you might damage your computer if certain ones of those devices were deleted. Would suggest leaving that list of USB devices as it is for the moment.

Hi

Hope this is the correct forum in which to post this. Please advise if incorrect.

I recently did an XP repair function on my pc to fix a small problem i was having. All went well and the problem disappeared but during the repair process when files were being restored from the original xp disk. it didn't want to re-install the driver for the display device. I have the original drivers and utilities disk so thought i would just re-install after the repair.

It won't install. It creates a progress log and points to that when it fails. Have pasted it below in case it is useful, but it means nothing to me.

Any clues?

Answer:Can't Load Display Device Driver

Just making sure you're not confusing things. Display device is your monitor, pretty much plug and play. What problems are you experiencing? Go to Start>Run and type "devmgmt.msc" without the quotes and select OK. Expand all the (+'s) and look for any yellow exclamation points, indicating a problem
