Updating HP Mini 1101 Drivers

Q: Updating HP Mini 1101 Drivers

I have a HP Mini 1101 netbook which originally came with Windows XP Home. That OS suffered some hal.dll error, so I took the opportunity to upgrade it to Windows 7 Ultimate. I want(ed) to update the drivers but according to HP's support site for this netbook it only covers XP Home & Professional & Vista Business & Ultimate.
I was wondering if would be advisable (I personally don't think it is) to update using the Vista Ultimate drivers?

Thanks.

I've been trying to install Windows 7 on my HP Mini 1101 netbook, but after trying several methods described via various sites it always ends up the same way in that the installer starts up ok but when it starts to Expand the Windows files it fails & says "setup.exe" is corrupt.
I'm pretty sure that nothing is wrong with the discs since both I've used at given points in time in the past to install Windows 7 on this laptop I'm using now. The flash drive I'm using is brand new (only opened this morning).
Anyone got any ideas to help me pull this off? Thanks.

A:Windows 7 on HP Mini 1101 via USB

Couple of Questions for you.
How did you get your install files onto your USB drive?
Is the DVD in good condition? (i.e. no scratches)
Is the DVD an actual Win7 Install Disc or a burned Copy?
You could try using IMGBurn to create an ISO of your Disc and than use the Windows7 USB/DVD Download Tool to transfer that image to either a Blank DVD or a USB Flash Drive. I would recommend the latter as it installs a lot faster. If this is something you've already done than let me know and we'll try something else.

Hello, I am trying to boot my HP 1101 Mini, which has not been used for some time. It was left to us by a coworker who is no longer with the group, and there seems to be a BIOS password on it. There has to be some kind of default backup password, and I've found many posts about this issue, but none of the numbers given in the forums have worked for my situation. I have attached an image of the screen. I there anything I can do to get through this password screen and ultimately disable it?

A:Need Help Updating Bios dc7800 Compact Mini Tower : ROM.CAB ...

Hi: There should be no need to update the BIOS if everything is working correctly. If you want to update the BIOS you should use the built in Flash System ROM menu in the BIOS. That is the safest and easiest way to flash the BIOS. All you need is a USB flash drive formatted with the FAT 32 file system. Download the latest BIOS update and run it. You should get an instruction page.  On that page, you want to select the F10 flash system rom option and you should see a view contents of DOS flash folder. Copy all of the files in that folder to your usb flash drive. Plug the flash drive in the usb port, reboot the PC and at the beginning of the HP welcome screen, tap the F10 key to access the BIOS. There will be a menu to Flash System ROM. Select that and it should see the BIOS update files on the usb flash drive.  Then follow the onscreen instructions to proceed with updating the BIOS.

Hi all,It started with Norton 360: wouldn't update, hasn't updated for 91 days now. I disabled Norton on startup and installed AVG, and now AVG won't update either. System is bot-free XP Home SP3, approx three months old (i.e. Norton has never updated, even if it's a 90 day trial), I had a bit of trouble with the Automatic Updates (reregistering wups2.dll didn't help) but updated through IE>Windows Update eventually.Anyone know what might be interfering with these update processes?

Hello everyone,
Recently, I updated my HP laptop from windows 8 to windows 8.1. I got critical message from HP Support Assistant asking to update the drivers. I went to HP website, and see all the drivers specified for my laptop. I didnt get which one I have to install. I dont want to install unnecessary things that could harm the functionality of my laptop. Anyway, I opened the device manager in my laptop and checked the update for every driver. But, this message still appears to me. Any tips that can help me? Do you know the specified drivers I have to install? Or, Do you know a specific source I can use to know the needed drivers?
Thanks

Recently I have decided to update the USB 3.0 drivers on my MSI Z97 PC MATE motherboard as it turned out that they weren't installed, and because I bought a USB 3.0 memory stick. When I just got this motherboard I didn't install them as after doing so I got a BSOD and had to do a system restore. Now that I've seen that a newer version is available, I decided to update along side my BIOS and other drivers. The updates went find with no problems, and the USB 3.0 ports are working great.

However, every time I start up my PC there's like a 10 second delay before I can use anything connected to the USB ports, which is rather annoying as some of my programs rely on some of the USB devices to be connected at startup, so I have to configure them one by one manually after startup. What has also happened is that the desktop icon positions aren't saving, and nor is the position/size of windows.

I'm thinking that it may have also been something to do with the registry as I cleaned it with CCleaner (not a good idea, it broke my Chrome updates a while ago). Can anyone please help? I'm really out of options and this is really annoying me. So far I tried to make it so that all of the USB related services are run automatically on startup, I tried restoring the old registry... Perhaps there's a way to fix it? Any help is appreciated!

Hello computer comrades!

Once again I have ran into a problem that makes me want to bang my head against the wall over and over. My friend just bought an HP Mini off of someone he knew, and all of the network drivers are missing. My initial solution was to go to www.hp.com, input the model # and/or serial # and download the drivers straight from there. No problem right? Well, I cannot find the model # or serial # of this tiny notebook anywhere! I called HP and they told me that there should be a sticker on the back with both listed there, however, they are not.

I went to www.hp.com to just see if I can guess which model this is, but there are hundreds!

Is there any way I can find out the model # of this HP Mini without this sticker that should be on the bottom?

Thanks,

Charlie

I bought an HP Mini 110-3015dx with Windows 7 starter pre-installed.  I have since swapped out the HD and loaded XP Pro onto the mini (by slipstreaming the SATA drivers -- what a pain).  Anyway -- I started looking for the drivers for the hardware, and the driver .exe that HP lists for the machine for the WLAN won't work.  I run the executable, restart, and nothing -- no new network adapter shows up.  I've tried mapping the driver directly to the extracted folder that's created in c:\SWSETUP, but there are no configuration files (only cabs and executables), so I cannot manually add the driver. Does anyone know the chipset and have a link to the drivers so I can manually map them to the unrecognized devices?  Or is there some other fix?  As much as I like Windows 7, I need XP on this machine. thanks,WLH

A:Mini 110-3015dx Wireless drivers for XP Pro not working

it does this same thing when you upgard to the full windows 7 - even though that is what HP recommends you do. Then HP will tell you to spend $60 for them to fix the problem - becasue this computer is not compatable with anything other than the windows 7 starter - its just a way for HP to make more money once you buy the product.

Hi Guys,

I've been trying to get this device to work for hours, and no matter what I do, I keep getting a messege saying the device driver software was not succesfully installed.

Under Bluetooh Peripheral Device, it says no drivers found.

Has anyone successfully installed the Belkin's Mini-BT dongle, and if so, can someone give me a step by step, how-to on how to do so?

On my iPhone, under Bluetooth, it says that I'm connected to the PC, but on the PC, it says that the BT device needs trouble shooting, and it won't allow me to transfer any files to the iPhone.

Really, the primary reason I got the BT dongle was so that I could use the iPhone's 3G service as an internet connection when I'm away from home.

I have gone thru a clean up of my computer on the malware forum, and it was suggested that I make sure to update drivers after the last cleaning. This is XP Pro SP3. I found a website which advertises they can scan your system and give you a list of drivers that are critical to update or recommended you update or if you should want a backup, here's a driver. The downloads are free but you pay an annual subscription.

Looked like a deal so I did the download and paid but the problem I saw was that it recommended drivers for things I did not have, drivers for 64bit systems, all kinds of things. I tried to ask why they would recommend drivers for things I did not have but never could get a straight answer. So I cancelled that subscription.

My question is there a website the experts on this forum know and use that is reliable, that can give you a list of needed updates or newer drivers specifically for your system?

A:Updating Drivers

The only place you should be going for stable, reliable drivers is the manufacturer of your computer (Dell, HP, Gateway, etc) if it's OEM or the specific manufacturer of your hardware if purchased separately. Avoid "Driver Download" software because as you found out, you'll only have problems.

A:Updating Drivers????

These are the latest graphics drivers for your card. When Windows says it has the best drivers, that just means that nothing newer is currently on the computer, but there can still be newer ones online.

If that doesn't work, then tell use what games you're trying to play, it could be that they just don't support that card.

Hi Everyone!

This is my first post to this forum! Anyway, I 'uninstalled' Windows Vista for my friend and then reinstalled Windows XP since my friend didn't like the Vista OS. I downloaded the XP OS fine, however, after not being able to get on the internet, I looked at the Device Manager in the XP OS on his laptop. I found these 'devices' had a yellow exclamation mark beside them:

cnf7047
coprocessor
ethernet controller (listed twice)
pci device
sm bus controller
unknown device
video controller

I ran the program PC Wizard on his laptop, and this is what showed under System Summary:

Manufacturer: Seanix Technology Inc.
Mainboard: Wistron 303C
Chipset: Nvidia GeForce 8200M
Processor: AMD Turion X2 Ultra ZM 42 @2100MgHz
Physical Memory: 2048MB
Video Card: Nvidia Corp.
Hard Disk: Toshiba 160GB
Network Card: Nvidia Corp.
Network Card: Atheros Communications Inc. AR5006

Now, my problem, is that I need to find the drivers for the above mentioned
devices, especially the ethernet and video devices, as without them, I haven't been able to get on the internet, while the screen keeps having a
'cascading' effect. I'm going to see my friend next week, and I need to have
the laptop 'fixed' so that my friend can get on the internet and also not have any problems with the video. Since my friend didn't get any 'recovery' disks when he bought the laptop, I need to be able to fix the device manager problems before I give him back the laptop! Thanks!

A:Updating drivers.

Hello sashag

You must find out the make and model of the machine. Then go to the manufacturer`s site and download all the XP drivers for that particular model You are probably miising the chipset drivers too.

Search for Dell/HP (or whatever) driver downloads

A:How do I know which Drivers need updating?

If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

If your computer has been working properly, I would suggest leaving it as is since the drivers have been doing what they were intended to. If you are suddenly experiencing problems with old drivers you should reinstall them. Usually, the only time that you need to update drivers is if they fail to perform with new hardware.

Hi there, i have absolutly no experience with drivers and the last time they were updated was back in 2003, it's a Intel 82865G, if someone could just send me the link to download it that would be great. Also it only has 64.0 mem so if i update it will that increase the memory?

Hi,

I have been having some display issues. The main one being an intermittant translucent red line running down the centre of my screen which started after a NV4_Disp error.

I am using 2x Nvidia 8800 Ultra cards which I know need a drivers update and I have downloaded the latest ones from Nvidia but am unsure how to install them correctly. Can someone just run me through how to uninstall the old ones and install the new ones to see if that solves this problem (or any other suggestions of course!)

I am running XP.

Thanks in advance.

I want to update my drivers. I already have all the latest drivers from the HP support page for my computer, but I think a few of them may be out of date. Problem is that I cannot find the exact model number of my installed hardware. For example, my Intel display chip just lists as "Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family", which isn't helpful at all.

Is there some program i can download that will tell me the exact hardware models I have, etc?

A:Updating drivers

Here you have the direct link for the download center:

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

That's your Chipset.

You could also check the manufacturer's website, let's say you have a Realtek HD Audio Card. instead of downloading it from the HP website, go to the Realtek website. of course this is just an example

Check the manufacturers of your PC's devices. and then do some research although most likely you have all your drivers updated (if you have installed the latest from your OEM's website)

EDIT:

Audio: IDT High Definition (need to download from HP's Website)
Video: Intel, from the link above. AMD from here AMD Graphics Drivers & Software
Touchpad: Drivers | Synaptics
Network: Atheros: (unofficial) ATHEROS drivers for Microsoft Windows (need to search your model), realtek LAN: Realtek, Intel pro: intel download center (above)
Storage: Realtek Card Reader: the same link i posted above (Realtek)

That'd be it. the other devices, download them from HP.

I recently got around to beginning the daunting task of updating the 50-100 drivers, and I have a few questions. The only ones I haven't updated are the ones inside "System devices." Since there are are at least 20-30 of them, I'm wondering whether there is a more efficient method than double clicking each one, selecting the Driver tab, and clicking "Update driver." Also, several of them say, "...this hardware is not connected to the computer," or, "...requires further installation," or both. Does the "...this hardware is not connected to the computer" message mean that I don't have one of those, and how do I resolve the "...requires further installation" messages? I followed Microsoft's instructions, but, as usual, they didn't work.

Hi, I don't know much about this kind of think at all. I was told that updating my drivers might help a game run faster. Here is what I read:

"Make sure you update all your drivers. This is important for those slackers who only want to play and don't bother to update your drivers. There are essentially 3 types of drivers to update. Motherboard / Chipset drivers, video card drivers, sound drivers. For those of you who changed your video card from Nvidia to Ati vice versa, you might want to use a driver cleaner to clear out the old files. These drivers, driver cleaners etc could be found at http://downloads.guru3d.com/ or if you're using ATI cards, some people found http://www.omegadrivers.net/ to be good for them. "

The problem is that I am completely confused. I don't know how to navigate those websites. I don't even know what kind of drivers I had. I remember trying to do this by myself years ago, and I nearly broke my computer. Please help.

You first need to know what hardware you are downloading drivers for and the manufacturer's web sites are the best source. Download Everest and you can get a start from there by identifying your hardware and chipsets.

If you are not experiencing display or sound problems, and do not play intensely graphic games, you can probably not worry about updating your drivers. If, on the other hand, you have never updated your drivers, it would be a good idea to do so, as well as to save them to disk in case of later computer problems.

I recommend going to the manufacturers website for the hardware
you want to update drivers on.
That way you always get the latest.
If the computer manufacturer doesn't have updates (factory computer like a dell),
Then you can check sites like graphics manufacturers for the latest.
You shouldn't lose your network unless you get the wrong driver.
If your computer is custom built,always go to the manufacturers site
of the hardware for driver updates.
I never use those all in one programs like drivermax.

How to Find Drivers
search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone - will help you search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- - if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.
- The most common drivers are listed on this page: http://www.carrona.org/dvrref.html
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: http://www.carrona.org/drvrdown.html
To remove any left over driver remnants, especially from graphics cards, use driver sweeper

I was just reading through some posts on here and have found updates for realtek hd audio driver and many others.Why is it device manager doesnt find these updates and is it just best to manually visit the sites and check for updates yourself.Or is there another way to check.Also which driver updates are most important i presume my graphics card must be well outdated by now
Any help much appreciated thankyou

A:Updating drivers

If you don't have Windows 7 updater latest release installed (came out just after W7 was released) and allow it to search for third party updates you won't be advised of updates. Go to Asus Downloads and Updates section and check for updates by your particular model and OS and I'm guessing you will find updates. Your device manager would find an update if it were in a directory on your PC but I find it is usually not intuitive enough to find one on the web.

You may also wish to think about the mantra "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", updated drivers can be a good thing but not always. Loads of OEM's actually work with the industry folks and have dedicated drivers for their components and Asus is no exception to this so it would be in your best interest to check there first especially with a laptop.

I don't actually recommend the use of a program such as "driver detective". Instead, I periodically check the manufacturer's website for any updates.

I want to update my video card drivers on my ATI Radeon 9800XT to the Catalyst 5.11s (not the 5.12s because there is a known issue with one game and those drivers). How can I go about doing so? I'm looking for a step by step tried-and-true method of doing this. Instructions on ATI's site have been different from instructions on other forums, so I'm kinda confused.

I am aware that the first thing I need to do is install Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 from Windows Update. Then I should reboot my computer I assume?

Then I guess I download the 5.11s and safe the .exe to my desktop? I understand that I need to remove the old drivers, first from Add/Remove Programs. Do I remove all of the ATI entries? Can this be done in normal mode or must this be done in Safe Mode?

Once I remove the drivers from the Control Panel, do I restart my computer then or should I run something like DriverCleaner? Again, should this be done in normal mode or safe mode?

After reinstalling Windows (spyware assault on my wife's PC) I'm having a hard time fixing both the sound and video drivers. I'm trying to update them under the device manager, but whenever I have windows look for updated drivers it tells me there isn't a better one found.

The video is ok but a little sluggish, and I have NO audio. Is there anywhere else in windows that I can update these drivers?

Hi All,
I want to upgrade my graphic card drivers, in the hope of eventually installing Vista. I've had a look at Bleeping Computer's very informative tutorial, however, it doesn't say whether you have to uninstall the old drivers. I would be very grateful for any advice.
Thanks in advance.

A:Updating Drivers

I'm no expert, but upgrading drivers to function with Vista might mean that your current OS would not function properly.

I want to update my graphics card driver but am a bit unsure of the best way to do it and how to restore the one i am using at the moment if it all goes wrong. Card is Nvidia G-force 2mx. Been to Nvidia and looks like Version: 56.64 is the one I need. Started reading all the info and got a bit put off trying. I guess it must be simpler than it sounds on their site.

Any help welcome Thanks

Hi Adam and welcome

I have an old Toshiba Satellite Laptop M series and have decided to try and up date the drivers on it. I ran one of the free scans and it has identified 5 drivers which need updating which are namely:
Canon i850
NVIDIA GeForce FXGe5200
Intel(R) Pro Wireless 2100 LAN 38 Mini PCI Adaptor
Intel (R) Pro /100VE Network Connection
Intel(R) 8280 IDBB PCI Bridge 2448.
I have found free updates for the first two and installed them.
My question is: Can anybody recommend a site where I can get Intel Driver updates and is it worth doing?
 

A:Updating Drivers

Try intel.com and go to the downloads area. It may take awhile to find what you need but it should be there. Some of them are now in an older or achieve folder. When you get to the intel site select then select downloads.

I currently have 2 GeForce 7800GTX's running in SLI mode under Win XP. I am using driver version 81.95. I tried to update the drivers to the latest version 91.31. First I uninstalled the driver via Add/Remove programs. Then rebooted. Upon Windows starting, I got the "found new hardware" message. But instead of saying it had found the 7800's, it said it found VGA adapter?? Why weren't my 7800's found. Also, when I looked in device manager, there wasn't a listing for display adapter and my IDE adapters had yellow exclamation marks next to them. So I "system restored" back and am now waiting to see what to do. What is the proper way to update drivers for both video cards so that I can still run in SLI mode?

Hi
Is there a "safe" and good programme that makes life easier for updating drivers?

Some I have used in the past have tended to cause more problems than they have fixed. Trying to eliminate an ongoing problem I have at the moment. Not at any one particular moment but keep getting a message "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close". All that happens is that desktop "empties" and then recovers. Doesn't affect anything else. Ruled out Virus. Memory and Graphics cards are only 6 months old. Computer was professionally re-built at the time.

Not very technically minded. Been told it may be a 3rd party shell extension causing the problem but suspect there is no easy way to get to the bottom of that.

Wanted to update all drivers just to eliminate one more thing

Any suggestions would be gratefully received. thanks
 

A:Updating Drivers

Definitely update your drivers yourself. If there are auto-updaters from the hardware manufacturers themselves those tend to be alright (albeit they still consume RAM), but I don't think the scenario has improved at all for those "magic bullet" update-all-drivers softwares.

Have you tried System Restore to fix your problem?

A:Updating Drivers

If it ain't broke, don't fix itGenerally, if you're having problems or installing an application or program that needs them or an updated driver might have an improvement that you want. EMachines should have them on their support or you can download a program like SIW That will give you the name and information on the internals. Then you can go to each individual site and download themMark

Hello hemants

Go here

Click the ?Download? button and you will soon get an option to verify your installation.

When you click on the ?Download? button a check is run to see which version you have. If you do not have the latest one the download will start and install it for you too. If you do have the latest you will be told so and no download will start.

If you have to install an update, after the EULA there is a page with
Google Toolbar and Google Desktop (I can`t remember if it is Google or Yahoo) checked for downloading, so watch for this and uncheck the boxes.

My dad has been having problems with his pc. He talked to his ISP & they suggested looking for driver updates for his system. Is there something on his pc that tells him what to look for? I did a search for drivers for myself the other day (I'm having problems too.), and found drivers, but nothing to tell me which ones I needed personally. They had some components of my system listed, but didn't tell me if I needed the updates. Is there some way to tell. If we install drivers we aren't sure we need are we gonna mess something up?
Thanks!

If its a wondowsXP system then do a system restore backup before updating any drivers, then if there is a problem you just restore to the point before you did the driver updates.

If you don't play games just leave it, especially if notebook is working OK. That's my opinion.

Hello,

I will be getting a new desktop PC very soon. I will choose my requirements along with an OS which they will build for me etc. This will not be a PC that I put together myself though, it will be a custom-built with my specs.

Q: Apart from updating the graphics drivers at some point in the future, will I need to consider updating any other drivers at some point or straight away? ie motherboard, chipset etc

I ask, as I was watching 'build your own PC' on youtube and there was a part near the end where it said you have to update your drivers and gave a short list. I'm assuming this is just for users who build their own PCs?

Also, will my custom built PC come with recovery discs and would this be the same and/or equivalent of 'clean install image' they advise for build your own PC?

Hope this all makes sense.

Thanks

I downloaded a program a program called Uniblue DriverScanner and it tells me I have 5 drivers that are outdated. It makes you pay for the program (which I won't do) to download these drivers. Instead, I just go to Device Manager and click on the drivers that Uniblue tells me are out of date and click to update them (Search automatically online). When I do this, it says "The Best Driver software for your device is already installed" Now is this just the program tell me these drivers are out of date so it will make me buy it, or are these drivers actually out of date. The drivers it lists are...

Display Adapters: ATI Radeon X1200
IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers:Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller (2)
Network Adapters: Atheros AR5007EG Wireless Network Adapter
Sound, Video, and Game Controllers: High Definition Audio Device
Universal Serial Bus Controllers: USB Composite Device

I was wondering if anyone knows if these programs have been updated recently, or if the driver scanner program is just a hoax.

A:Updating Drivers Confusion?!?

I would say a hoax.

You can check to see if there are more current drivers available by going the manufactorer's website. And, if you are not having any issues with your computer, you shouldn't need to update any drivers.

I've no idea what's going on here, but NONE of my drivers are updating and anything new I plug into a USB port, windows 7 won't have anything to do it.

I'm certain something is missing. I don't know if it's a virus or some kind, but I can tell you now that my install shield (64 bit) is missing.

What on earth is going on? It won't even recognise a new mouse or keyboard!

There really HAS to be a way of fixing it. I posted a few pictures about it but it seems strange that it won't even install a monitor properly???? The monitor I'm using now is still usable, but it doesn't have it's own driver and as a result some software won't work on it as it acts as a secondary monitor (although it works fine and is actually pretty darn good).

Is there a way around this? I've tried an update and windows still won't detect it!

Please help, reinstalling windows is a real pain as I have a custom made PC that my friend built (who has now moved away really far) so I have no idea how to reinstall the graphics card, do a proper partition, etc. And I know NOTHING about this. If I did it I may screw things up and lose all the saved stuff on my partition.

If someone could help out that would be much appreciated.

BOC.
