RIS driver for WinXP

Q: RIS driver for WinXP

I own a second hand Mesh computer and I have none of the official documentation. Recently I reformatted my pc to Windows XP Professional SP3 and did my best to collect drivers and so forth. The problem I am having is installing the correct driver for my Ethernet Port.

I found that I needed the driver associated with the motherboard -- ASUS P5N-E SLI. Went to the manufacturers site and located the LAN driver here -- SLI

I cannot work out how to install this driver. There is no .EXE and after a closer investigation I found it to be a Remote Installation. I did a google search but with my little knowledge of the topic, nothing seemed to answer my installation query. The documentation included speaks of a RIS image and an unknown directory to me -- RemoteInstall\Setup\Language\Images\Dir_name\I386

Any help on installing this driver? If there is any extra information needed, I'll do my best. Thanks in advance, I know how useful this forum can be.

Hello. Does anyone know if USB drivers written for Windows XP will work with Windows XP Embedded?

A:WinXP / WinXP Embedded USB Driver Interoperability

XP Embedded is supposedly a componentized version of Window XP. It's intended for OEM's developing an embedded computer, usually for some industrial or large commercial application, rather than your run-of-the-mill PC.

I have a fairly old notebook that I have been doing a pretty good job of keeping on life support. I've updated and upgraded everything and everything else works just peachy except now I have a problem with WinXP and the CD-ROM drive.

The notebook is a Toshiba Satellite 2250CDT with a TEAC CD-224E-B CD-ROM drive. In Device Manager there is a yellow exclamation point on this drive. The Device status is "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupt or missing (Code 39)".

I'm guessing the TEAC driver is incompatible with WinXP and there is nothing on the TEAC or Toshiba websites. Is there such a thing as a generic driver? I've scoured the web looking for an answer and you may be my last great hope. Any ideas?

I've been having a slight problem with my SATA controller drivers. The nvidia drivers that I was using would always cause a bsod pointing to nvgts.sys in system32/drivers. While trying to figure out which driver to install as a replacement, i found the nvgts.sys file and deleted it from system32/drivers folder, just to see what would happen... Now Windows XP can't boot up because the driver is missing lol; I can't even get into safe mode. So, is there any way to reinstall the driver from the Windows CD-ROM or something? The black screen says to insert the said CD and start the recovery console but I wouldn't know what to run. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Assuming you used a floppy to install the Nvidia Raid drivers, start a Repair Install and when it asks for you to press F6 do so and re-install them.

edit: btw, if you Google that driver there are LOTS of people experiencing issues with it.

Any advice will help.......


A:WinXP driver issues

Hi, Your motherboard has a chipset from VIA, and usually you must install motherboard drivers from an install CD, or download from the support site for the Gigabyte board...did you do this?
You have an onboard video adapter/chip. May need to disable it in the BIOS....I am not sure as some allow you to just install an added in card and load new drivers, some do not.
You may have to load the Standard VGA adapter drivers, then after that is loaded and running in 16 color (yuck) you can install the right drivers for your OS and the Radeon and it will install.
I would review the instructions from the mobo manual for installing an add in video card- the manual, if you do not have one, is here::
manual found in the list on the left.
Reading the FAQs might be quicker than opening the manual online with Adobe Acrobat.... but, it says "Coming soon" for them...oh well, manual is best I can do, unless you or someone can hunt for details on how to use add in video card easily.
Might be just the standard step by step, uninstall all video drivers and switch to SVGA, then install new ones. Safe Mode can help with this.

Note that there is a 7VKMP-P version of this board.

I am new here, and I hope someone here can really help me out of this dilemma. My wife somehow downloaded and installed a certain driver she thought it was to be upgraded for Window XP Pro. After she rebooted it, she got as far as just before the log on, everything freeze. I ask if she remembers what the driver was she downloaded and installed, she didn?t know for sure what it was. I try booting into WinXP Pro Safe Mode, and it did the same thin, mouse and all. I cannot log onto Safe Mode. Believing it may have been a certain driver in conflict with something incompatible ? possibly the USB ? I unplug all the devices using the USB including the mouse. The results are still the same, if froze as before. I use the command.exe to run chkdsi /r to see if it can repair it. That one fails. I try using the WinXP CD in an attempt to repair the Windows without losing the data. That didn?t work either.
My only option is possible reformatting the hard drive, but I do not want to reformat the hard drive until I can figure out how I can retrieve the important data (My Documents). I remember I can easily do that with Windows 95 using the DOS command by coping most of my files to the floppy disk. It was time consuming, but it was worth it before the invention of the Flash. Now I can?t figured out how I can retrieve the data to be copy to the Flash since WinXP doesn?t work like Windows 95. The hard drive, by the way, is healthy. It?s just like I say, there is a driver conflict that... Read more

A:WINXP Driver Incompatible?

Using the Windows Installation disk, did you try running "chkdsk /f" ? If so did it report and/or fix any errors ? Run chkdsk multiple times and get several clean scans before moving on; the HD may be getting ready to fail.

Also, in Recovery Console, run "fixboot" and "fixmbr".

Try Safe Mode. When booting to Safe Mode, disconnect ALL hardware except for the keyboard.

If all of these fail, you may need to run a Repair Install.

Is the WinXP disk you are using the correct one for you installation ?

I recently installed win xp pro on a couple of friends pc's after the dreaded BSOD and noticed that most of the video, audio and modem drivers were missing( showing up as big yellow question marks in device manager) so I got a corporate edition of xp pro with sp3 slipstreamed into it. I used this disk on a pc the other day and same thing happened(Is this common?) anyway I downloaded all the drivers from the dell site and checked the pc, played cd,played video and connected to the internet all ok. problem I'm faced with now is the owner uses a usb dongle ( from his mobile phone company) to get on the 'net but it wont work on the pc yet if I put it in mine it works fine, I was thinking it was something to do with the usb ports but then how come the keyboard and mouse still work.
next idea was maybe it something to do with the wireless driver, I checked device manager but can't find anything wrong, so I guess I don't know what I'm looking for, so I came here for enlightenment

Alright, I give up. If you go into your Windows XP device manager and View > Show Hidden Devices, look under Network adapters. You'll see WAN Miniport drivers, probably several of them. Unfortunately, on one of my Windows XP Pro machines, I don't. They're not there. Now, they're just software drivers, so it should be quite easy... but how do I add them?

I think I've got it...

If anyone runs into this, here's how I fixed it, although not well tested yet:

I just exported related registry settings from a similar, but working computer. Specifically, those referring to the ndiswan and related drivers. It seems that the most important of those are in Local_Machine\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum\Root\MS_NDIS...

Then, I temporarily changed the permissions using regedt32 on the non-working computer so that I could modify the Root folder... And imported! With a restart, the missing devices are showing up.

I am trying to reinstall WinXp onto my Dell Inspiron 2200. I had no problems with the OS when I installed it. But when it comes time to extract and install from the Drivers and Utilities disk, many of the drivers applications and utilities simply do not install. I get what seems to be one of two error messages. Either that an object was not found, or it cannot install on this system. The only utilities that seemed to install without a problem where ones that worked for WinXp and Win2000 and that were also listed as compatible with every Inspiron model type in the drop down list. A few months back I reinstalled WinXp on this machine without these problems using the same two disks. I do remember that when using the Drivers and Utilites disk, Inspiron 2200 was not a model number available on the drop down list. XPS, 600m, 300m, 8600, and 1150 were on there to name a few. I recall using the files for one of those model types and never having any problems. Anyone know if any models out there use the same drivers as a 2200? Or if something may have went wrong when I installed WinXp. Thanks.

I just got a second-hand Dell Optiplex GX260. The original purchaser bought it with XP pre-loaded, and had only the reinstallation CD, which I got. Unfortunately, the CD says "This CD is not for reinstallation of programs or drivers." This apparently is true as I'm finding that I have to use the device mfr's disk to get drivers whenever I attach something to the computer. I was wondering if there's a separate driver disk that came with computer (the guy I bought from doesn't recall), and if so, where I can get one. I tried calling Dell, but got tired of pressing and holding.

Hi, recently I've been having some problems with my computer so I decided to give it a reformat. Up to this point I used to leave my computer at BestBuy to get things done because quite frankly I don't know squat about computers. But this time around I wanted to learn my way around the advanced aspects of computer maintenance, so I decided to do it myself.

At first I had to learn what BIOS is and how to make my computer boot from CD rom. No biggie, didn't take me too long. But when it got to the actual installation part I got a message that read something like "hard disk not detected." I gave it another try before searching the net again for an answer. I found one case in a different tech forum that was similar to mine, and most of the replies suggested that he either needed a fresh RAID driver install or reinstall in a different driver mode. After fiddling around on Dell's support page for a bit with the help of a very, very kind person I met online I finally made a RAID driver disk and gave the whole thing ANOTHER try. No dice, it still couldn't detect the hard disk even after the drivers were installed.

So I simply decided to try the whole thing in different driver mode and I'm afraid this is what sealed my fate. I was able to fdisk in "RAID autodetect / ATA" mode (it was originally set to "RAID autodetect / AHCI" mode) and install a new copy of Windows - except I can't install any drivers necessary to ru...

I recently bought the supposedly excellent Canon MP530 multi-function printer,etc. and went to install it on my WinXP pro machine and . . . nothing. I've spent some time with Canon tech support (some helpful, some not so helpful) but I still can't get the freakin' things to communicate with each other. The consistent result of my installations is "no driver is installed" or "cannot find driver" - even though the driver itself seems to install. Also, when I turn the printer on, I get the New Hardware Wizard, which, I think, means my computer is detecting the printer. It's as if the driver is just not recognized by my computer.
I've installed (and uninstalled) the drivers from both the disc that came with the printer and from the Canon website. I've used two different USB cables. I've tried many combinations of plugging/unplugging, starting/restarting, turning on/off - all to no avail.
I've logged on as the Administrator. I've done my best to shut down any programs or processes- though I think this is tricky, as I don't necessarily know what each thing in my Startup or Services is. I've even tried installing from SafeMode. I've tried using the New Hardware Wizard; I've tried ignoring the New Hardware Wizard.

2. By install windows XP that has integrated AHCI driver

​If you are using solution #1, then you can install windows xp by using standard winxp installer, but if you are using solution #2, then you need to find AHCI driver for your chipset, and then integrated it to winxp installer by using software called nLite.

The printer refuses to install under WinXP.
It worked under WinXP before. However, I uninstalled Windows and worked under Linux for several months before returning to WindowsXP. I was able to use the printer, although problematically, under Linux. When I installed a fresh copy of WinXP, the WinXP drivers refused to install.
As a side note, the previous installation was an upgrade of Win2k, where the printer worked fine. It also worked fine on Win98SE.
When I try to run the installtion file (really a self-extractin ZIP) 'XPC11_15.exe' after the warning screen, it just closes and does nothing. I then unzipped the contents into a seperate folder: two file named 'xcc152k1.EXE' and 'XP_VB.exe'. The second file contains nothing but a warning message, while the second one is the installation of the printer drivers.
The installer loads, and looks OK. I choose the language and agree to the license agreement. Then a box informs me that I need to upgrade my firmware (I did so before, when the printer worked under WinXP previously). Left without another option I click Upgrade. It opens a little box called ,which displays "Copying Files..." and then "Installing Files...". These messages flash by quickly. Then a warning message called 'Printers' appears telling me that "The arguments are invalid."

I am using an Asus P5W64-WS MB, XP Pro SP3, and an older 74GB WD Raptor. I've never really messed around with doing the "F6" installation of RAID drivers when installing XP. Instead I've always just selected the default in the BIOS where the SATA drive is treated like an IDE device and I did not have to install the drivers during OS installation. I currently see under a speed utility that my Raptor is giving transfer rates of 85MB per sec. maximum, 24 MB per sec minimum, and 73 MB per second average.

My question is this - what sort of improvements might I see if I did a clean install of XP Pro and configured the drive as an SATA drive using the F6 driver installation option during install?

Also, is it worth going to a RAID 0 configuration if I am going to do the SATA thing? I would be using the ICH7R controller for that.

Finally, what does the AHCI option allow, and is that used with the IDE or F6'd SATA driver installation?

Thanks for any help.

A:IDE vs. F6 SATA driver install on WinXP Pro & Speed Improvements?

The HardDrive is working off the same speed on PATA or Sata.
The F6 is usually used for Sata Drives that require extra drivers
The Raid 0 is not the safest idea, and in actual fact normally I would say, don't do Raid anything if you're unsure.

I needed to Upgrade W98SE -> WinXP Home on my Eurocom (A.K.A. Sager, or, Clevo) laptop.

A clean install was not expedient, and I now have no way to make a W98 boot floppy.

I installed a WinXP Home Upgrade v.2002 CD, followed by SP2 (exe), followed by SP3 (exe).

The Eurocom 2700C dropped off my network the moment the Update was 1st installed & it thinks it has no NIC. My USB ports still work, thank goodness.

I just bought a new laptop for someone and it has Windows 7 on it. But I ask to have Window XP installed overtop it since he's not used to Windows 7 and the transition would be too much for him (they couldn't just have Windows XP by itself because the hardware doesn't support it).

I seem to be having a problem installing the driver for his printer now, and I think it has something to do with the dual layers of operating systems.

Let me explain:

While inside Windows XP, I try to install the driver (I've made absolutely sure it's the right one) and I get to a stage where it tells me:

Step 1: plug the USB cable into the computer and the printer.
Step 2: Turn on the printer.
Step 3: Wait for the installation to continue.

Step 3 never happens. It just sits idle forever. I know it's responding to the printer because every time I turn it on/off, I get that "ding-dong" sound from the computer (also whenever I plug/unplug the cable when the printer is on).

After a few trials without success, I tried installing it on Windows 7. It worked.

I figure probably what happened was that upon turning on the printer, it was able to inform Windows 7 of its presence (because Windows 7 is the de facto OS), but this information failed to be relayed to the virtual Windows XP running on top of it.

Here's my question: now that I have it installed on Windows 7, is there some way I can go into Windows XP and inform it of the new driver and/or where it ... Read more

but that doesnt help me that much..
All it gives me as found in a windows log file:

I also added 2 attachments of my windows\minidump folder, are
they automatically the files concerning the crash?

1 more thing it kinda sounds like my hard disk powers off, and powers back
on judging by the sound of it because it sometimes takes a few seconds to
auto re-poweron the computer... which it does...

First time poster, so may be editing this post as I re-read FAQs with help of caffeine and realize that I've missed something.

I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T61 running Windows XP SP3. It was left undisturbed for all of today as it ran a scheduled virus scan (I use AVIRA, and the scan was clean as of 7:00PM.) When I returned to the computer I re-connected to my secured wireless network. Windows advised me that I had a "limited/no connection" so, as prompted by toolbar, I selected "Repair." At that point I got BSOD'd with the error message "a driver has overridden a stack-based buffer." Successive restarts under Last Known Good Configuration were unsuccessful.

After reading a 2008 Vista thread about this same BSOD error I booted up in Safe Mode and am running MalwareBytes and another virus scan, neither of which has come up with anything thus far. (It was that thread which led me to post this in this forum; it seemed that the problem there was due to malware.)

I should probably add now that I'm an intermediate computer user. This is my first time using HijackThis and my first in-depth manual virus/malware removal, so I may ask you to phrase things in basic terms for me, but I learn best by doing things so at the very least this will be a good learning experience for future. Or I could just stop running Windows and solve most of my virus problems.

I recently built a system (not exactly state-of-the-art) to replace the aging box I had been using for a few years. I got a mobo that would support a SATA hard drive so I could enjoy the faster access and high volume. I bought a 160Gb SATA drive and got a sealed OEM version of XP Pro from the internet. I put it all together and loaded the OS, activated it online and loaded up all the updates. I slaved the old hard drive and transferred all my data to the new drive and life was good for a couple of weeks. Three nights ago, I was at the computer and got the proverbial BSOD (blue screen of death). I shut down and attempted to least 10 times with every joy.

Enough's the problem:

I have a legal copy of WinXP on a HD that won't load Windows and is slaved as a data-only drive. My emergency 60Gb backup drive (new master) has a copy of WinXP that is of "questionable origin" and that has never been activated officially that I got from a guy at work.
I want to "legalize" the current XP installation by booting from the legal XP CD and repairing the installation from the menu........Can I do this without losing data?? Or, is there a better way to get legal?

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

First go into Bios and find the boot menu make sure it is set to boot from Floppy first(if you have a floppy drive) then your cd rom then your Hard drive.

Put your windows Cd in your cd drive and save and exit from Bios.

1. Start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM. To do this, insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD drive or DVD drive, and then restart your computer.
2. When you see the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press any key to start the computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
3. At the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to start Windows XP Setup.
4. Read the End-User License Agreement, and then press F8.
5. Follow the instructions on the screen to select and format a partition where you want to install Windows XP.
6. Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Windows XP Setup.

Please note that during setup your computer will reboot. When it does you will be asked to press any key to boot from cd DO NOT press anything otherwise it will just start the setup again from scratch.

Hello all,

I have a very old computer currently, and I'm going to get a new computer. My current computer is VERY fragile - as an example, about two years ago I added an additional stick of ram, and this somehow caused my winxp install to become corrupt, and I lost everything on my hard drive. I still have no back up of my files that are on the computer now.

In getting the new computer, It will have at least one extra hard drive that will be used to store backups.

Basically, I want to be able to transfer all my files from the old computer over to the new computer. The old one uses Winxp Home, and the new one will have Winxp Pro. (no, not Vista. Repeat - no Vista)

Will I just be able to plug in the new computer to my Linksys router that the old comp is connected to, and transfer over all the files from my old comp to store as a backup on my new comp? (and, what kind of things would I need to do to make this happen?) (my current computer is connected to the router for internet through the ethernet port, and the new comp would do the same thing)

I'm somewhat computer literate, but have NEVER networked anything together. Thanks!

A:Transfering files between 2 computers - WinXP Home to WinXP Pro

Here's a wizard way to enable file and printer sharing on XP machines.

Run the Network Setup wizard (found in Control Panel of XP). Tell it each of your computers connects to the internet via "residential gateway" and that you want to enable file and printer sharing. Create a disk at the end only if you have a Windows PC other than XP or 2k Pro or Vista.

Windows XP firewall (if SP2 or SP3) will be properly configured by the wizard. You must uninstall or properly configure any 3rd party firewalls on each machine. Unique computer names and same workgroup, of course.

The Shared Documents folder is automatically shared. Any other folders (or drives) or printers you want to share, just right click on them and sharing ... . When sharing a printer, accept the offer to load other drivers if your other PCs have different Operating System(s).

When you first go into My Network Places there will be nothing there. The first time you click on 'View Workgroup computers' will probably result in great disappointment. It takes awhile (up to 15 minutes) before all the computers in the workgroup get up-to-date and accurate lists of the other computers. Often you can speed up this process via Search for other computers.

When computers show up in My Network Places, double click on one to see its shares. If that includes a printer, you can right click on the printer to connect to it.

Went to boot up just to make sure everything worked and it would get to the XP slpash screen (with the blue staus bar). As soon as it tried to initialize the desktop/log-on screen it would shut down immediatley.

Booted from the WinXP cd to do a new install. Made it to the "ready to install" screen (options to press ENTER oto install, repair etc..). It dies immediatley if you press enter.

Removed the HD and placed it in another PC and did a quick format. Placed back into case, tried to install from the CD again...same result.

Apparently the boot sector on the HD remains as when I tried to boot up it said something to the effect of "NTDLSR.??? not found ctrl+alt+del to restart"

After all this I discovered that it (previous XP install) may have been infected with a form of the sasser virus (lsasse.exe errors). So do I need to do a full format, and could this be causing the shutdowns whenever it tried to boot originally and now when it tries to access the HD to do a fresh install?

Whew!! That was a mouthful!!

Welcome to TSG!

So if I'm following, you took a hard drive from your friend's PC, installed it into your PC running XP Home as a 2nd drive, then installed XP Pro onto this drive.
Your friend's system won't boot, and your system offers the choice of XP Home and XP Pro. XP Home should still work, but XP Pro will fail if your friend's drive is not installed in your PC, correct?

Assuming your system had only one partition and one drive.
The files that start the OS are on your C drive, they were not installed onto your friend's hard drive.
This can be fixed, but XP Pro will see itself as being on drive D, not drive C
If the hardware is different, you'll need to do a repair install to get it to work though. Easier to just start over.
Your system should still boot to XP Home, but will have the choice for XP Pro. This just needs to be removed from the boot.ini file.
You best bet is to start over and do the XP Pro install with the drive installed in your friend's PC
To remove the XP Pro entry from your system (with your friend's drive NOT installed):
Click Start | Run, type msconfig, press Enter
Click the BOOT.INI tab
Click the Check All Boot Paths button
It should find the XP Pro line as invalid, and offer to remove it.
Click Yes.

I'm having a heck of a time getting three systems to network consistently.

Previously I had a WinXP Pro desktop cabled to a Win2k Pro laptop and was able to get them to see each other over the connection but was never able to get the laptop to share the desktops internet connection, (DSL).

None of these systems can see each other on the network. I get a message saying MSHOME is not accessible.

I don't believe there are any technical problems here, (although I will stand corrected if need be), just my lack of understanding of how networking these OS's works.

Hey all ...

After reformatting and reinstalling XP on a Dell I've run into a strange behavior I've not seen before. Sometime after I finished installing the drivers for the system I am seeing this intermittent window that says (to the effect) certain system files have been modified and Windows needs the Windows SP2 disk inserted. When I do this, the message goes away. In fact, the message will go away on it's own sometimes. However, this intermittent message does keep popping up. At first I thought it was only when new hardware was added. Now, the user of the machine told me it pops up when they open IE (sometimes). It's usually followed immediately by a few pop ups say "windows protection error" (no not a blue screen, just a window that you can close out) and in that window it warns that the Windows disk is not inserted.

The only difference with the Windows install on this Dell (vs. all the others) is that I used a homemade install disk with the SATA drivers slipstreamed onto the disk. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it. I installed the remaining drivers onto the system immediately after install so I'm not sure if this prompt/error existed before, after, or both before and after I installed the additional system drivers.

Anyone seen something like this before? Remedies? Thanks much in advance!

I just got a 'new' (actually it's used!) computer that has a faster processor than my old one. Basically, my old computer has a 2.2 GHZ pentium 4. The 'new' computer has two cpus at 3.0 GHZ. Ideally, I'd like the new computer to have everything the old computer has on it. But the old computer's O/S is winXP home, which won't recognize two cpus, correct?

Is there a straightforward way to accomplish this? Or do I have to reinstall the programs, and transfer all the files? Can I upgrade the winXP home to winXP pro, and then clone the disk? I guess that would cost some bucks for the upgrade?

Thanks for your advice / help!

A:How migrate from WinXP home to WinXP Pro?

Does your new computer actually have two separate physical processors in two sockets or a single physical processor that appears as two? XP Home can use multiple logical CPUs no problem.

A bigger issue is the fact that the XP Home install has the drivers of your old machine. If you try to boot that on the new one, it will not boot. You would have to do a repair install.

House cleaning good. IMHO you should just do a clean install on the new machine. Copy over the needed documnets. Reinstall only the programs that you actually use and need - forget all that rubbish that you have collcted on the old.

Hello, I am trying to help my brother fix his computer, which is a Compaq Presario running WinXP Home. Apparently while surfing the net he was suddenly barraged with pop-ups and attempted installs. There were so many he could not remember what the attempted installs were. To stop this, he tried using the task manager to end a lot of the pop ups that kept coming back up after closing them. While doing this, Norton Anti-Virus came up with a Bloodhound warning then quickly disappeared on its own. This was followed by a new dialog box (I'm assuming it was a dialog box from the way he described it to me, it did not sound like any log off window I have seen before) that prompted him to log off. He logged off and is now unable to log back in.

The computer boots to the blue login screen, but there is nothing there except the WinXP logo. He has control of the mouse but no keyboard input seems to work (though he does have power to the keyboard). We have tried booting in safe mode, command prompt, and last known config, but get the same thing. The computer ignores the restore CD during boot, and we have verified the CDROM as the first boot device in BIOS. Any ideas?

Let me know if you need more info. I have tried to be as thorough as possible but am not at his computer. We are communicating by phone and he does not know a lot about computers in general, so sorry if the details are somewhat vague. Any help is appreciated.

All of a sudden the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service is set to Manual in Services.

I clean installed Windows 7 a few weeks ago and my system is clean (as far as clean goes) as in only 15 programs installed (of which 5 x NVIDIA). I use this computer for work and I don't want anything else.

I checked that service and a few weeks ago it was set to Automatic.

My questions are:

1. Any idea what may have caused this value to change? I'm pretty sure this is related to a USB drive.

2. Could it be the case if you install an old USB drive it somehow messes up the value?

3. What does this do anyway? I read on Black Viper it manages user-mode driver host processes:

User-mode driver framework is a method of having drivers ran in ?user space? instead of ?kernel space.? This provides better system stability due to a situation of a driver crashing, it only brings down the driver and not the system. Such possible devices include cameras, media players, PDA?s and other USB connected devices.

4. Should I set it back to Automatic or leave it as is?

Thanks in advance!

Is there an easy way to determine and point out the offending driver when there are BSODs that mention a driver is to blame, so I can uninstall it? The BSODs all say "DRIVER_IRQL_ (less or not equal to, something like that)" and this is after just reinstalling Win XP on my laptop, so one or more of the many drivers I installed must be to blame. I'm looking for a way to pin-point the problem driver(s), not roll back and carefully install only what I need.

Restart your computer and rapidly press F8. it should present you a blue screen with a few choices. Choose the first one and then again rapidly press F8. It should give you many options, choose start in safe mode. Then, at Start choose Control panel and open admin tools. Choose computer managament. Open device manager, and select the device which has ! mark next to it, and uninstall it. It should work then.

Hi good people,

So, I'm on here like thousands of others with intermittent wifi issues. I upgraded from 8.1 to 10 yesterday and everything works very well except for losing my wifi connection every 30 minutes to an hour.

My wireless adapter is a Broadcom 802.11n
the driver I'm using is Broadcom version

I've updated the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've rolled back the drivers and the same loss of wifi happens. I've even tried a driver directly from the lenovo site that is a Cybertan Liteon driver that is the latest version for windows 8.1.

I've also unchecked the box in the power management page. Then rebooted.

I've also used all the commands, in the command prompt admin that start with 'netsh'. Then rebooted. The same thing still happens.

So, I'm up for new suggestions including compatible drivers from different manufacturers.

I'm really hoping there's a Z585 user on here that has solved this issue. According to the Lenovo web site this particular laptop has the latest drivers on the site and none of them are working so far.

A:Lenovo Z585 losing wifi after driver update, driver rollbacks, 'fixes'

First, is your laptop supported for windows 10 on lenovo website.....meaning are there drivers and software packages for it? Have you tried downloading the 8.1 driver for it and then running it in compatibility mode?

I am not sure if this is where it belongs, or if it is a Graphics Card issue. I have an Acer Aspire 7741z-4433 with an Intel(R) Pentium(R) p6200 (2.13 GHz, 3MB 1.3 cache). This only happens to me while I am playing The Sims 3. I have the game set on the lowest quality settings, even though my laptop "claims" to be HD LED, etc. This issue still happens. As you may know I cannot replace the graphics card as it is apart of the motherboard, and to buy a new motherboard with a better graphics card would cost more than a new computer. I have been the my manufacture's website and tried installing an update of the graphics card, and that didn't do the trick either. I am at my wits end, and I just want to play the game without it shutting down and freezing my computer. The reason I know the error is because I do Alt + Tab to get back to the desktop. The way it acts up while I am in game is the screen blacks out but I can still see the software's mouse, and then it blinks a couple times and then freezes completely, causing me to do a hard shut down. What can I do to resolve this issue?

A while ago I posted about having problems with corrupted files, poor performance and blue screens. I've managed to fix most and the computer has been usable again. However it's not totally fixed. I very occasionally after logging on will receive a blue screen stating the following (last time this hapened was a couple of days ago).

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer. This overrun could potentially allow a malicious user to gain control of this machine.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly isntalled. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacture for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. (or it was something along these lines).

Hi there!
I'm in a desperate need of help.
This is the situation (sorry for my bad English as always...).
Yesterday I left my PC running with a download in progress through MiPony.I told the program MiPony (for the first time) to shut down the PC at the end of the download.Until then the PC had no problem.Before going to bed I checked the PC and I saw that it was offThis morning I turned on the PC and I glimpsed a sign that it was starting a scan (the only letter I saw was I:\) but I could not stop it.The PC is turned on regularly. Only half an hour later I found out that an entire 3TB HDD in 4 partitions had disappearedI did some search and found this error: The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device ROOT\PARAGONBLOCKDEVICE\0000.I tried to reboot but same situation (no scan and normal situation) but NO drive.I checked the event log (attached) and I see the problem started after 4 different event regarding my network connection (It's a week that I have to reset the modem \ router several times a day)

Ok, I have a reasonable knowlage of computers, i have spent the last 4 days trying to fix my Phillips PSC805 Auruilium sound card.

I have recently put more ram in and a new video card (NVIDIA Gforce2 MX 100/200) its no the greatest but i cant afford new ones.I am running Windows XP professional. I have had the sound card and speakers for almost 2 years and they have worked fine untill this new hardware was put in.

straight after these were put in, My sound card went dysfunctional. it has power, but the aurulium sound agent 2 program will not install completely. it will begin to install but before long it will say, VDI32.exe has encountered a problem and must shut down. after that an error message appears saying "failed to obtain 805 bus interface" and directly after that "805 Registration failed!"

after this i attempt to open aurilum sound agent 2 and it states that "The QVE bus driver is not detected! Reinstall the Qsound virtual audio devices bus enumerator driver."

this message is also displayed on startup of my computer.

I am in desperate need of some help, Its driving me crazy. it also seems to be affecting other applications on my computer.

Please help.

I tried to update my older Radeon ATI 5450 GPU via windows update...

I received the message from windows update, and showed it failed update with the 0x800706be

However when I go to device manager and check the details of the installed driver it clearly shows the new updated version? So I wonder which is correct the device manager showing the new version of the driver or windows update?

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.

After many many hours of searching forums for solutions I have been unable to find a solution to my problem - so I decided to open a topic of my own and hope someone can help me with my problem specifically.

My problem is similar to this topic, although the solutions posted there aren't working for me. In short: I have been experiencing random but frequent BSODs (16 and counting) with the message 'driver power state overload' being displayed.

In my quest for a solution I wanted to upgrade my drivers, when I noticed my Nvidia Geforce 650M graphics card seems to have disappeared. When I try to install the latest driver from Nvidia's website I get the error 'graphics driver could not find compatible graphics hardware'. Attempting to open the Nvidia control panel gives me the message 'An Nvidia graphics card was not detected on your system' and I cannot find the card listed in the device manager (only the intel HD graphics family is listed under display adapters)... To be clear: I'm quite sure my laptop SHOULD have this card, it's just not detecting it for some reason.

Since the symptoms of my problem are exactly the same as described in the topic linked above, I have tried to follow the solution described by Arc. Installed Driver Fusion, started in in safe mode and tried to delete Nvidia drivers - but nothing seemed to be listed here. I still clicked delete but not sure if this actually did something or not.

Hello Zephos.

As per the supplied data, this is the specification of your graphics.

Name Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
PNP Device ID PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0166&SUBSYS_21031043&REV_09\3&11583659&2&10
Adapter Type Intel(R) HD Graphics Family, Intel Corporation compatible
Adapter Description Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
Adapter RAM (2.080.374.784) bytes
Installed Drivers igdumd64.dll,igd10umd64.dll,igd10umd64.dll,igdumd32,igd10umd32,igd10umd32
Driver Version
So, it says it is not nVidia. But as you are saying that it was Nvidia Geforce 650M, and it disappeared, the best option is to contract the vendor. I wish you are within warranty?

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.
