Preferred Solution: Had the Windows Defender virus. Now no Network drivers, audio drivers, etc.

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So i rebooted my laptop a little while ago, it was working fine, then when it came back on it wouldn't connect to the internet. I looked at device manager and all my network drivers all have the exclamation mark. I tried a system restore to about a week ago but that failed. Thanks in advance.

Bought a used Gateway esx e4000 from a reseller. It came complete
except for the external stuff (keyboard, monitor,mouse).

Hard drive was formated to DOS...terrible thang.

Problem is I am installing XP and don't have the audio, viedo, controller drivers.

Gateway sold support of product to a company that went out of business.

Anybody have a clue on the drivers???? Did I provide enough information?

A:Gateway esx 4000 Audio, Viedo, Network XP drivers

Find out the manufacturer of the devices in question, go to their website and download the drivers. If Device Manager doesn't know what they are, you can download a freeware program called Unknown Device Identifier that will tell you all of your devices.

Hi:I have a dell c400 and had no problems following video driver issues posted here to fix that particular issue.I have now got an issue with audio and wireless network drivers .i run the install on windows xp drivers i downloaded but windows won't let it take so any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

A:dell c400 audio and wireless network drivers

can you give us the service number to your pc? without it i'm not sure how much help we can be. this is an older model and the latest dell drivers are for xp so it's likely the reason you haven't found them is because they were never updated.

I am re formatting my mom's computer again and due to unforeseen circumstances i have lost my back-up hard drive with all my drivers on it and i am having issues finding what i need. I have ran cpu-z to find out all the information about her computer. It's an IBM intel p4 with windows xp pro on it. i can gather whatever other information is needed to assist me in finding the drivers i am just unsure exactly what i need to provide so if u ask me i shall be able to provide. Thank you

i went into the device manager and under my ethernet driver this is what it says:

A:Need Ethernet drivers, audio and video drivers

easiest thing is to google any numbers you can find on your motherboard, this will identify the make and model and will (well should unless its an obscure cheap make) provide a link to the drivers on the makers website.

Once you find the drivers remember to back them up to a dvd or a CD and label them up.

A:Device Drivers for Laptop with no network drivers...

all of the relevant drivers can be downloaded from the acer website for your laptop.

you can gain access to the internet from the acer by plugging an ethernet cable in directly from your router/modem.

only download from trusted sources, and when it comes to drivers only download from the vendor. just go onto the acer website, click support or downloads. and fill out the form. making sure you choose win 7 64bit as well as the correct model of laptop.

Hi, there. I put a sound card in my computer today. When i tried to install it, during the setup process, it says that i need Windows audio drivers first before i can install the soundcard. I tried to figure this out on my own on the internet, but am very confused. Do you know of a web site and which Windows audio drivers i would need for a Compaq Deskpro, MultiSync A500, NEC? And is there any way i can figure out what i need without having to take the computer apart again and look at the motherboard? I would be so appreciative. Thank you!

I have a small number of these laptops that were recently upgraded to Windows 10. The sound driver works but for some unknown reason when connecting a Bluetooth audio device or changing the audio settings the laptop speakers dissappear from the available options in playback devices as does the mic in recording devices. The driver appears to be working and does not have any event's logged when it happens. Re-installing the driver gets it working again but it soon dissappears and needs to be done over again. The audio definitely works and has been tested. I beleive this is possibly a driver issue since I have the same problem on multiple units.

My usual solution to this type of problem is to remove ALL instances of the device, then boot to Safe Mode and enable 'Show hidden devices', then remove any remaining ones, and any yellow- or red-flagged devices, then reboot to Normal Mode, and let Windows sort itself out.

Since I don't like it that much, I plan to format the hard drive (by going into computer-> Right click on C: -> Format) and then to do a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium on it.After the clean installation procedure, I was wondering if I could simply insert the Dell Drivers and Utilities disc into the optical drive and intall the drivers like I would normally do.Therefore, the real question would be: Will the Windows 8 drivers provided by Dell be compatible with Windows 7?Thank you very much everyone.FatLord

A:Planning to downgrade from Windows 8 to Windows 7. Will the drivers provided on my Dell "Drivers and Utilities" be comp...

I did find this one "Inspiron 15R SE 7520" If that is your model then the Dell website has Windows 7 64bit drivers and Windows 8 64 bit drivers available for download.

I would use the Windows 7 Drivers for windows 7, Just download them ahead of time and burn them to a CD or store on a flash drive so you will have them handy to use.

I would also have my Antivirus ready to install before I went on the Internet.

3rd point. Windows will prevent you from formatting the drive it is installed on. So you have to do it during the install process.

Good Luck

The sound on my new laptop (running Windows 10) is really really low. I Googled and it turns out that it might be because of a driver issue?

I tried searching for Altec Lansing drivers (that's my speaker brand) but I couldn't come up with anything much. I don't have my installation CD anymore. The model is BXR1221. Maybe it's too old or something...

A:Audio drivers for Windows 10? (especially Altec Lansing)

There are no drivers for the actual speakers. The drivers are for the PC's sound hardware chip such as Conexant, Realtek, etc.

Is the "low sound" on the Laptops internal speakers or with the external Altec Lansing speakers?

Hey Everyone,
I am running Windows Vista, on an HP Pavilion DV4 (I'm sure you know about the glitchy touch panel on this thing, yes?) and my Audio Drivers keep crashing. I'm wondering if someone can walk me through how to properly repair them?
So far, I have (tried to?) uninstall IDT audio manager, and download new drivers.
I noticed I have two audio drivers in my device manager, and want some help as to what to do with them to get my physical speakers working.
My speakers have most often crashed when I launch world of tanks, but today they are not working on boot.
It should be noted that, on screen, my speakers show as on and turned up, but the touch button on my laptop is orange, meaning it's muted... no sound plays.
Thanks in advance for the help!

your current device installation settings is configured to prefer drivers from Windows Update over locally installed

do you want to change the settings to prefer locally installed drivers over Windows Update?

I had to reinstall windows Vista Business on an Acer Aspire AX1200-U1640A 2GB install went well but when I tried to set up my internet, wireless did not show, I called my internet provider we tried to set it up as broadband but that didn't work either. It seems I do not have the drivers for the Ethernet Controller and other things listed under other devices see pictures in attached document. Since I do not have the internet on that computer, I downloaded the Ethernet driver from Acer to a jump drive but I cannot get it to work. Please advise for all "other devices" with the same problem.

Greetings This is a general question for a fresh install of Windows on a computer Let's say we just completed the installation and we open up Device Manager we haven't used Windows Update yet Device Manager shows us that there are - let's say quot quot - devices that do not have drivers installed for them If we visit the computer manufacturers website though they'll have - let's say quot quot Windows Installed OEM - General Website Drivers Question Vs Drivers - different drivers to download If we only install the quot quot drivers for the devices that Windows couldn't find drivers for are we hurting our computing performance by not installing the other quot quot drivers that were available on the manufacturers website This is just good to know in general because I've faced this situation with every install of Windows since I began computing General Question - Windows Installed Drivers Vs OEM Website Drivers with Windows But the reason I'm asking now is because the nincompoops at Acer - despite me entering my serial number - still offer me every possible driver for my model including drivers for hardware that's not in my computer Windows - of course - can't identify the hardware so I'm ready to rip out the last little bit of hair on my head Thanks

A:General Question - Windows Installed Drivers Vs OEM Website Drivers

Some manufacturers offer an utility that helps you identify what stuff you have in the laptop, I think Acer did.
You can also try the hardware-detection program this forum has, this tutorial

Also check the driver version, as some manufacturer list multiple driver versions and you only need the latest (usually, otherwise take the last version that works).

Also, installers of these drivers usually look up the hardware IDs of the hardware and if they don't detect anything that could benefit from them will abort installation. Some instead install anyway and you will have some drivers you won't need, but won't cause any issue as again Win7 knows that they don't match any hardware ID, and will leave them alone.

So, you may have noticed that I am talking of Hardware IDs, that are basically each device's own "calling card" integrated in each device, you can identify the hardware by looking up its hardware ID and then searching it on Google to convert that code into a human-readable device model and brand.

Open device manager, right-click on an unknown device, click on "properties", then go in the "details" tab of its properties panel from Device Manager, click on the drop-down menu and select "Hardware IDs". right-click on the codes you get on the text panel below it and select copy, then search the code on Google to identify the device.

To my knowledge, when an OS such as Windows 8.1 is booted, all firmware/bios drivers are replaced by more appropriate OS drivers in the boot drive during start up. I learnt this happens for the latest versions of Windows. Am I right? Do all bios drivers get replaced? Does this happen with the latest versions of OS X as well?

If this is so, then you can discard firmware as suspected of causing problems on a computer that's already booted up. Unless there's a problem that's causing a driver to remain in RAM after boot.

I also get/got any error every time I try to uninstall one of the audio drivers I get this message. Warning "Removed Realtek Audio driver Failure!" So, to recap, Windows doesn't see/find any audio device, thus no system sound even though the drivers are installed and are the same from the last time I had them.

Just like the title says, I don't want the realtek audio drivers as it completely messes with my audio and also doesn't correctly switch when i plug in headphones for example.
It also doesn't allow for the 'speaker fill' enhancement to be used when playing stereo content through surround sound.

Windows itself does a far better job as opposed to realtek.

Every time i uninstall realtek it automatically gets reinstalled.

Hi and welcome.

Have you tried the HP site? Have you googled for example your model + drivers?

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 try and help you locate the appropriate program.

- - The most common drivers are listed on this page: Driver Reference Driver Reference
- - Driver manufacturer links are on this page: Drivers and Downloads

So my question is, do I need to install the CCC package from the ATI site or are the windows installed drivers just as good. On a similar tack without starting a new thread. Do I need to reinstall the chipset drivers for my Gigabyte MA770T-UD3 Motherboard or are they still installed?.

A:Windows 7 drivers or ATI graphic card drivers?.

If you have an ATI graphics card/chip...some say that you don't need to install CCC.
I have a history of ATI cards/chipsets and I always install the full package because the card/chip works properly and I don't care about the fact that I don't ever use CCC.
Any drivers installed by Windows by default will work...but for optimum use of the graphics function, you probably need to install the drivers provided by the system or motherboard manufacturer.
Anytime an O/S is reinstalled...all previous system files are flushed.  Of course, a clean install fllushes everything.

I have a network user and before Christmas I installed a new desktop PC with Windows 7 professional for her.

Setup and installation went smoothly until just recently. In the last 2 months, the PC "loses" the printer drivers for our Nashuatec MP 3300 multifunction office printer.

The printer still shows as installed in the Control Panel but the status shows as "Printer: Needs new driver". I then have to install the new drivers from the print server using my admin credentials. The PCthen retains the drivers until the next day when it loses them again.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Woke up this morning, turned on my laptop and now I have NO network drivers. Tried a system restore prior to the "critical updates" and that didn't work either. So what the....????

Can anyone tell me what is going on and if it is repairable? I use this laptop for work as I am a contractor and use it to get online and print invoices and such.

Evening all,

I have just placed a 2nd hand mobo (ASRock M3A770DE) into my pc. It'ts running win 7 ultimate, all h/w is detected ok apart from the integrated network card, therefore i cannot connect to the router and onto the internet. Since win7 is not auto-detecting the integrated NIC, is their a file on the win7 disk i can point it to when i manually try to install it?

On a separate note i can connect to the net via my vaio, in case you can suggest where i can d/l a file from.

All suggestions appreciated.

A:DELL OptiPlex 760 Internal Speakers and Windows 10 (ADI 198x integrated audio drivers)

I, too, have an Optiplex 760 made in 2008 that I have updated to Windows 10 Pro.  Since I usually use an external speaker, I didn't notice this issue at first - until I tried the front headphone jack; there was no sound, and plugging in the headphones didn't silence the external speakers.  Eventually, I found the Sound tool in Control panel that lets you choose either the external speaker jack on the back or the front panel headphone jack and the internal speaker.  My current audio driver is the Win10 version, 10.0.10586.0.
What I'd like to clarify is whether you are having to choose which connector to use, as I am, or whether that driver will let you have a speaker plugged into the rear panel jack and still use the front panel headphone jack without having to choose in Control Panel - as it worked in Windows 7.

As I was looking over you system specs... (ok, a little sarcasm, but)
would you be so good as to fill out your system specs.

I realize that you will need to go to another computer to download SPECCY.
Download speccy, then use sneakernet (in other words, copy to usb stick, put usb stick into your computer, copy to a location of your choice on your computer, then run the file you downloaded).

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec (left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

Add the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

Now one way to find out more about your computer, and even without using speccy, is:
MSINFO32.EXE or DXDIAG.EXE or going to a command prompt and typing SystemInfo.exe

At the tail-end of systeminfo.exe will be info on your network cards.

Hi muazzam

Is best to upgrade to SP3 (if only because MS has dropped support for SP2) but can start, for now, looking at your problem while you continue running with SP2

Let's start with these initial steps
1) List any Problem Devices

Make sure all your devices are connected and powered on
Click Start->Run, enter: msinfo32. Click the + sign next to Components to expand it
Click Problem Devices. Anything appear?
If yes, click on it, Ctrl-A to select all, Ctrl-C to copy it, Ctrl-V to paste into next post
2) Generate and attach a DirectX report

click Start->Run, enter dxdiag
Notice progress in lower left window corner
When done, click Save Information button and save to your Desktop
In TechSpot, use the paper clip icon to attach the report. (If you don't see icon you may need to first click Go Advanced)
3) If there were no Problem Devices (step 1 above) then also check on your Windows Audio service if Status=Started and StartupType=Automatic

I'll have a look and we can take it from there

Prior to reformatting, I scanned the laptop with several tools and it picked up some malwares, most of them were adwares that Superantispyware detected. Thus, I performed a low level format using diskpart command "clean all" with a system recovery cd provided by a manufacturer from another laptop brand and as soon as Windows 7 was finished installing, I noticed both the wireless and LAN network drivers were already preinstalled. Is this normal or am I still infected? I've never had drivers preinstalled after performing a low level format until now.
I also read that the bios or other parts could be infected but the probability of that happening is very slim.
Please help.

I've got a Dell Inspiron M5040 with Windows 7. It had the annoying cursor jumping all over the place issue. I tried to load Windows XP x64, but no, go. So, back to Windows 7, but this time, Ultimate. It's loaded, but no network adapters detected. I've loaded all the network drivers available at Dell for the M5040, but no go. I even tried using the Windows OS disc that came with the computer, but of course, it has no drivers, and the computer did not detect the wireless adapter when I loaded all of the drivers with it, too. When I click on, "Connect to the Internet," the only available adapter is, "Broadband (PPPoE)". So, here I am. Thanks in advance.

A:Re-install Windows 7, Drivers Loaded, No Network Adapters Detected

Hi delquattro,

There are various reasons that may be responsible for the 'wireless adapter' not getting detected.

Did you check 'Device Manager' to verify if the wireless adapter' is present?
- Click 'Start' icon > Type 'devmgmt.msc' in 'Search programs and files' text box (without quotations) > Tap 'Enter' and 'Device Manager' page appears > Locate 'Network Adapters' category > Expand it by clicking the 'arrow sign' besides it (Inspiron M5040 may have been shipped with either of the following cards: WLAN 1701/1702/1501/1502/1503) > Check if either of these cards is listed.
- If not, please browse through the whole list of devices to check for any 'question/exclamation mark' > If yellow mark is present, capture its details and share

If the 'WLAN card' driver is installed and the card shows up in 'Device Manager', you may need to enable it. Use the key combination <Function><F2> to 'enable' the 'wireless'. You may also use 'Windows Mobility Center' in the 'control panel' to check the status of the wireless connection. You may 'enable or disable' wireless as shown in the image below:

If you are not able to use Fn + F2 keys combination, you may install 'Quickset application' for your computer from this file: Driver Details | Dell United States

Once installed, it will enable the Fn+F2 key combination and you will be able to activate the 'Wireless'.

Hope this helps. Do reply with the findings; would be glad to assist.

Hi there,

My Acer XC-605 desktop running windows 10 does not recognize any network. The connection should run through an ethernet cable. When i looked at the network drivers there are two with an exclamation mark on them:

Qualcomm Atheros AR5BWB222

Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

It says they both won't start and they give a (code 10). Im pretty sure these guys are the problem.

Because i don't have a connection i can't update them, and uninstalling and reinstalling doesn't work either. I have a laptop with a connection, but i don't know where i can find any updated drivers to deliver to my Acer to fix the corrupt drivers.

Im pretty clueless of what i should do here, i hope someone could help me out i would be very grateful.

Hello everyone I'm having a problem using my motherboard s onboard HD audio instead of my video card s audio so without further ado here is the situation I have an Asus maximus iii gene motherboard which has a SupremeFX X-Fi built-in sound card this is a very nice card provided you can use it on the board I have an ASUS EAH V basically an ATI which also has onboard audio useable through HDMI When I first ran Windows X the drivers for the video card and its audio were installed first but then I noticed that my audio jacks both on the back of motherboard and on the case won t work audio drivers Onboard working audio and not won't install which is a big problem for me But at least I Onboard audio not working and audio drivers won't install have audio through speakers on my monitor through HDMI So to fix the problem I just tried to install drivers from Asus for the X-FI chip but that failed since no HD audio hardware could be found by the installer Google-ing the problem I came across hotfixes which Asus Onboard audio not working and audio drivers won't install also provides but they are not compatible with windows X so I m back at square one It s worth mentioning I have gone through my device manager and under audio only the ATI HD audio device is visible and I cannot see the X-FI device anywhere So I would like help installing drivers for the X-FI chip and use the onboard surround sound and HD audio jack on the case Thanks in advance to anyone who takes the time to read this ----------------------------------------- Update of things I have tried I opened my case and checked that all of the cables are connected properly for audio and double checked everything else In the BIOS I have a only options to enable sound as HD audio or AC I have selected HD audio since that s the connection my case came with other than that there are no options related to getting sound to audio jacks in any case I have enables all the peripheral devices in my BIOS Driver genius was really nice after driver updates I had a very crisp sound coming out of the monitor speakers yeah but this is from the ATI audio on the graphics card Now something I forgot to communicated at the beginning was that I can't even get sound out of the channel sound connections on the motherboard itself which leads me to believe somehow that the onboard audio is being overwritten by something else I have even tried the optical surround sound but no luck I'm now looking through forums and sites trying to find how I can manually install the audio hardware on my motherboard and then eventually disable the ATI Audio using device manager But then I run back to the problem that Asus provided drivers can't find the HD device AHHH what a vicious loop this is

A:Onboard audio not working and audio drivers won't install

hkhajavi, welcome to the forums.

First off let me say that despite the fancy sounding name that Asus likes to give some of its onboard audio solutions,in no way shape or form is what is on yours a X-Fi (which I hope you did not try installing any drivers from Creative for as they will not work). Looking at the specs and the download page for your motherboard,

yours has the Via audio chip on it (some of the previous versions of the SupremeFX X-Fi used a Soundmax/ADI based audio chip), of which Asus does have a Windows 7 driver for (both 32 and 64 bit). They also appear to have the updated X-Fi software (also known as X-Fi MB, which is where the X-Fi name comes from for the onboard audio; it gets to use some of the X-Fi software, but it is not a X-Fi sound card) available for it under the Utilities section in the downloads.

You may also need to run the updated Intel chipset Utility for the onboard audio to be detected. Once it is detected and the drivers are installed you will then need to open the Windows playback properties and make sure that the onboard audio is set as the default playback device and not the ATI HDMI device.

Hello all Hoping I can get some help here this issue is driving me totally insane I have a Gigabyte G M-Combo motherboard with an Atheros AR ethernet component I re-installed Windows today It failed to automatically detect the ethernet component so I couldn't get online No big deal I just used Google Translate to painstakingly navigate Atheros' website at a friend's house until I could find the driver files download them to a cellphone and take them card to manually. it allow Windows won't fails then network auto-install drivers, home Yet alas when I open Device Windows fails to auto-install network card drivers, then won't allow it manually. Manager and point it to the drivers I want to use it tells me it won't because Windows has cleverly determined that I'm already running the best drivers for that device Weird So I totally uninstall the drivers from Device Manager scan for hardware changes then update the drivers again pointing to the files I downloaded Again within seconds -- quot Windows has failed to install device drivers quot quot Windows has determined that Windows fails to auto-install network card drivers, then won't allow it manually. you're already using the best device drivers quot How can I force it to listen to me and just install what I ask it to I honestly have absolutely zero idea of anything else I could do It won't let me install new drivers and it won't install its own

A:Windows fails to auto-install network card drivers, then won't allow it manually.

if it's a brand-name PC, you must use only drivers from the PC manufacturer's website.
On brand-name (OEM) computers, drivers direct from the device or motherboard manufacturer will usually be the wrong ones. OEM hardware is custom-made, hence custom drivers are required. Only the PC manufacturer has these.

Open question, discussion, and somewhat of a problem.

I've recently been having various issues with my pc, among the things I tried to do was update my graphics card driver: found the newest driver crashed madly, and rolled back. It's brought to mind a simple question:

What benefits are there in going for the newer ATI Catalyst drivers compared to the one defaulted by windows but which hasn't updated in 3 years.

Generally what could have changed? Compatablity? If it works it works. Stablity? Performance? Heat management?

Since it takes me 2 hours to download a driver (slow connection) I'm sticking on my w7 default ones: I know they work. It does make me ask though if there is a benefit to upgading after i've got my PC stable again.

A:Windows Drivers vs ATI Catalyst Drivers

newer drivers are made to improve performance and add new features in the graphic control panel and fixes bugs and issues that were in the previous drivers.

I recently upgraded this old Dell M Vista x laptop to Windows Enterprise x Apparently the sound company for it Sigmatel went out of business before Windows was even released and their latest drivers are some ancient Vista drivers Should I download and install the Sigmatel drivers or continue to use the drivers that come with Windows They seem to be fine so far just seeing if there's any Windows old drivers the download or drivers? the I keep Should other input on this Do you think that the Windows drivers would probably be better based on Should I download the old drivers or keep the Windows drivers? the fact that they're much newer and made to run in regardless of the fact that it wasn't made for my system specifically All I've ever really cared about is what has the best maximum output levels I really hate sound drivers that are very limited in how loud you can make them output My old laptop this M is actually better than my current Origin beast laptop in terms of sound because the sound driver on my new laptop Realtek doesn't allow very much loudness at all on a set of headphones The only reason I ever liked the Sigmatel drivers is because they let you turn up the volume until it's so loud it could blow your ears and your speakers out Or perhaps it's hardware and has nothing to do with the drivers I dunno I'm too stupid Point is drivers that came with my system that aren't designed to work with this OS or go with the Win default drivers

A:Should I download the old drivers or keep the Windows drivers?

There is a saying, "if it's not broke, don't fix it" so I would stick with the working one. You could save the old driver as a backup.

Have one question, When I installed Windows 7 the only drivers I have installed were my video and audio which are not part of the motherboard (not onboard). My computer runs fine but 1 game but more or less I never installed any driver for my motherboard. Normally you install the motherboards nforce drivers, raid SATA/IDE drivers etc... Do I need to go back to my motherboard vendor and find updates for windows 7 or just leave it they way it is, or should I install the drivers off the motherboard CD I have here? My mobo doesn't have any windows 7 updates btw there all windowsXP based drivers.

A:windows drivers vs vendor drivers

If you did a boot drive format and install of Win7 you'll need to go to the mobo makers website and download the latest drivers from there. You might also need a BIOS flash, but I hesitate to mention that as only the very experienced should do it. We'll need full system specs to help any further.
