Lost device mgr/adapter/hardware capabilities...

Q: Lost device mgr/adapter/hardware capabilities...

Have been cleaning drive with Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program and now, with almost all of the malware removed, XP Pro does not display the device manager upon demand, as well as no network adapter present and not able to even open the 'add hardware' icon in the control panel.

I also had run a new driver install for the wireless intel since I had the BSOD for w22n51.sys. It didn't install, saying the driver I had was up to date - I know now to uninstall the driver prior to attempting to update it since it is ver 8 or older. Until I get that done, I can't even display, let alone change anything.

Presently the computer is started in 'diagnostic' startup. Looking for some quick fixes - greatly appreciated!

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.)

Hi, I have a little netbook computer that has no usb ports, and it is very hard to find a card for this netbook that will connect it to the internet (wireless, or ethernet carts).
It does have a serial port on the back of it, and I thought, perhaps I could get a Serial to USB adapter, then plug a wireless usb device into the usb plug...
Would this work? or is this kind of a dead end idea?

I just wanted to give it wireless capabilities

i am having issues playing any games it either says there is no device capabilites for the games or dx device capabilites are not there.. any help would be very helpful..

A:dx device capabilities

Lisa welcome to the forums.

Your computer specs would help a great deal. From what you are describing it almost sounds like a laptop or desktop with Intel integrated graphics on it, that or the driver foor the video card isn't installed.

Anyway we'll wait for you to post your system specs (make and model number will do).

A:Lost ALL network capabilities :|

"Network cable unplugged" is sometimes a misnomer. Most of time it means that the connection was dropped or the modem reset itself.

I am using windows xp and for some time now my computer has locked me out of any administrative abilities. It happened quite randomly and whenever i try to access anything, such as add and remove programs, desktop settings, my entire control panel has actually dissapeared. i really have no clue how this happened and no clue how to fix it. If anyone has any info it would be greatly appreciated.

This may be a drive issue but I am not 100% sure. Downloading updated drivers will only do good for a computer or laptop.

Try this link and then select which language you want and which version of Windows Vista you are using and then download and install every drive that the website offers. This will help with problems and may solve you graphics problem.

I have a wired Ethernet connection directly into my modem, I also have a WiFi dongle connected to a router so that i have network access to other machines. The WiFi network is also providing me with internet, i dont want the internet because i think it my confuse certain applications, how will they know which internet to use? How can i stop internet coming in through the WiFi but still be connected so i can retain the networking capabilities with other machines. I have tried unticking IPv4&6 in the network adapter properties but that just ruined the network. Im out of ideas. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Mike

A:Stop WiFi adapter using internet, but retain networking capabilities.

Hi Mike and Welcome to Seven Forums,

Perhaps, do an experiment from one wireless computers and see if this would work or not, assign a Static Addressing, remove the DNS servers and default gateway. See an image attached. Make sure that you would use the same IP Scope in your network for ex. 192.168.1.X or 192.168.0.X.

Hi ,
I have purchased an ICY BOX ( RaidSonic ) with 2 3.5 disks ( USB 3.0 ) and RAID capability.
I installed it as required and then I can see ( read / write ) both disks as separate volumes ( J: and L: ) . The initial configuration is RAID 1.
If i use the windows 10 option of storage spaces then RAID 1 is activated !!
But I am confused ... is this the right procedure for this machine or should work stand alone ????

A:External USB device with RAID capabilities


The initial configuration is RAID 1.

RAID 1 is two HDD's of the same size, Drive A and B where Drive B is a mirror copy of Drive A. If RAID 1 is activated, then you will only see one drive in Windows. If disaster strikes and one drive fails, that drive can be replaced, and your can rebuild the array without loosing any data.
Usually, these drives in these enclosures are in a RAID 0 stripped set spanned across two drives. In Windows it will look like one big HDD. There is no redundancy in RAID 0 and if one drive fails, all data is lost.
Right now, if both disks are separate volumes, then you do not have RAID activated yet.

I am frustrated. My wife has a Pfaff 2140 embroidery m/c. She has bought a new Laptop which does not have a serial port. So I got a generic Adapter Serial to Usb. The m/c has PC Communication card with a 9 pin serial. I have loaded the drivers for a Prolific Adapter. Then I closed down and restarted with the M/c connected to the laptop using the Usb. No communication was the message I received. I have determined that the port on the laptop used by the Laptop driver is com(7). I do not know which port the m/c wants. Although someone my wife spoke to says the m/c wants com(4).
How can I achieve the connection between Laptop and m/c? Please make me happy.

Netgear WG311v3 PCI Wireless Adapter Causes hardware failure


Ok so I have been trying to get this problem resolved for a while...I have no idea how to ... I have tried everything imagineable...I KNOW the error is with the adapter only...

It causes random BSOD and random Restarts, I can only use the adapter for like 2 hours if I am not using %100 network activity, if idling, If I am using high network resources...20 - 30 mins

I have browed all other TechSpot forums for ALL related material and did not see a solution

Also checked dozens of other forums, netgear knowledge base, microsoft, tech forums, e.t.c.

Can not find a solution...



it is in the adapter itself, that much is know...but does anyone know why

Hi Y'all,

I posted a thread in the Hardware forum earlier and realised later that it is really a Windows problem so here goes.

I (quite stupidly) disabled the display adapter on my Win XP SP2 machine because the display adapter did not appear on my device manager list.

Since then when I boot up I get the Mobo splash, I can access bios, I get the Windows splash and then I get a blank black screen.

I know that everything else is running ok cos the sound still works and when I hit the keyboard with my forehead I get the error sound.

Safe mode is not working for some reason.

Can someone please help me to enable my display adapter again without being able to see what I am doing on screen? I 've been trying to sort this out for about 10 hours!



A:Display Adapter (realised it is not a hardware issue & I am going NUTS)

Safe Mode boot is the way to get to the correction... you have to figger out why that is not working.
Let us know how it worked out. I can see it would be difficult to fix if you cannot see the screen.
You might try booting to a Windows Xp disc in R or Repair mode... or put a different hard drive in, then install Windows to it so you can access your BIOS and utilities.

Aight. I've been having a lot of issues installing my new wireless adapter because Acer is retarded.

I just got a new Intel AC-7260 wifi adapter with bluetooth, and I promptly installed it onto my computer.
-I have all the correct drivers installed
-Launch manager is installed
-The hardware switch is not working anymore, but if I install the old wifi adapter, the switch will still control it
-the wireless adapter is enabled on the OS side, but without a working hardware switch, it will refuse to turn on.
-according to PROSet, the wireless hardware switch is set to 'off', but wifi is on

Anyone know how I can tie the new adapter into the launch manager so I can use the adapter?

I have been having intermittent problems with wifi connectivity so decided to uninstall my network adapters (Realtek and Dell) and then reboot to see if it would solve the issue. Unfortunately I must have checked uninstall driver on the Dell adapter because after rebooting, the Dell adapter had disappeared.

I would really appreciate some advice on how to get it back. I remember in the (good) old days of XP I would get a "found new hardware" message on a reboot, but no more.

Thanks in advance.

A:Lost my network adapter

Go to Control Panel > Device Manager. You should see the device there (probably with yellow exclamation marks). Click on the device and have it look for device driver - if that doesn't work use the computer your posting with to go to Dell website and download the drivers, then tell Windows to use those drivers.

If you don't see the devices in Devices Manager, post back. That's a different problem.

My laptop will no longer connect to the internet. It can't even locate available WIFI. After troubleshooting the following problems were found: "The Intel(R) Dual Band Wireless-AC 7265 adapter  is experiencing driver- or hardware-related problems""A network cable is not properly plugged in or may be broken"    As for the 2nd problem, all of our other devices are connecting just fine to the internet so it has to be the first problem. I have 46 days left in my warranty. Where the heck do I even take my laptop to get looked at? Can I do anything to resolve the problem at home? HELP please!

OK,I really hope this forum can help. New system built 2 months ago I was updating my radeon 1950pro's driver and accidentally deleted teh display adapter in device manager. Needless to say at the next reboot I lost the ability to see anything passed the window black welcome scrreen with the lil blu scrolling bar on the bottom. After that all goes black. I can hear in the background that window booted but no image. I also cannot boot in safe mode or s.m. with command prompt. It stops at the loading of the file JGOGO.sys. Any idea how I can reinstall any version of the display adapter?

I recently bought a Sata/IDE to USB adapter.
It arrived today and my computer wont recognize the device.
The adapter is this.
My CD/DVD ROM is a Lite-on. Dont know the model. If need be, ill get the model number.
In the device manager the CD/DVD ROM is labeled as "EL1021Q SPO241A SCSI CdRom Device.", which is not the CD/DVD ROM but the adapter.
I google the adapter but nothing comes up. It also says "This device is working properly."
I can open my CD/DVD ROM and put in a disc and I can hear it loading but nothing loads up.

Any ideas on what the problem is?

So ya i recently got a hard drive out of another computer and hooked it up as a slave for space everything was good expect my computer needed a fresh start i think lol recovered hardware! lost and partially maybe i shouldve waited to throw the slave in cause its missing now cant find it looked everywhere got a little bit figured out in cmos i see its in the cmos cause whenever i change ports in my motherboard i see it there moving with me but it doesnt want to go to primary recovered and partially lost hardware! lol slave thats where i should be aiming for right primary master and slave i believe my dvd drives are secondary it worked fine before the wipe lol Its in a different port now i believe the four ports are third and fourth primary and secondary if thats right it was initially hooked up to the recovered and partially lost hardware! lol third primary port and i could dragndrop np I was planning on simply wiping and reinstalling software over there now no matter what i do i lost the k drive and its partition i toss it back into its old tower and it simply asks for it os disc so it works fine still just has no os on it then i went to go watch a movie and found that my second monitor wasnt working tried updating drivers and i got rid of the black screen and sort of have my desktop back sort of S its gotta be in the settings but whatever i do it either goes from black to what appears as the center of my desktop and with nothing on it zilch Ive looked in my catalyst and desktop properties i may have to go to another forum for that but i was hoping not could be this one last raid update i cant seem to get installed maybe not too sure why thats the only thing in device manager i cant get automatically

A:recovered and partially lost hardware! lol

Im suspecting i havent had the raid controller for a long time but i could be wrong... i might have an unlabled disc here somewhere. idk... everytime i go to find it on the net everything just wants me to buy driver updaters! but i dont think thats it tho cause i lost my ethernet adapter a long time ago and am using a usb hub now and ever since, if my memory serves me correctly, device manager showed 2 yellows but it may have been just the ethernet adapter... idk

All i know is i got it so far and got stuck!

Hi guys. Im new here so wanted to not only get help with my problem, but also say hi.

I recently installed windows 7 and initially everything worked fine. Then i noticed that one of my harddrives had disappeared. Its a 20gb barracuda. I checked in the device manager and also noticed that that I had a IDE controller and Unknown device problem.

I think the IDE controller is part of the High Definition Audio Controller set up so im currently downloading the realtek drivers to see if that allows windows 7 to recognise it.

I am howeever extremely lost as to how to get my hardrive back as everything I have done cant detect any hardware installed.

If there is anything I can put up on here that will help just let me know and ill do so, till then I hope there is someone out there that can rekindle my expectations of Windows 7!

Thanks in advance

Hey guys. I recently reformatted my Acer Aspire 1640 and I think I wiped the drive of all the factory installed software and drivers. My wireless NIC is not available anymore, I have no sound, no power saving mode, and the cooling fan doesn't even run anymore...which is a big concern...but it has been running well with no issues. All I have is my XP Pro OS.

IS it possible to get all the Acer stuff back?? Can I just go to the Acer website an reload all the drivers for my particular model??

A:Opps! Reformatted and lost all hardware.

If you don't have a driver CD that came with the system, then yes go to the ACER website. Look up your model and you should be able to get what you need. Not sure about the cooling fan although it is possible that some utility that controls the fan is not installed. Often the opposite happens and the fan runs all the time. You'll have to see what happens.

Is there a way to install a piece of hardware in a Windows image, or via group policy by hardware Id, i.e. without installing the actual hardware? I have Windows 7 in a VDI setup. All of the endpoints have the same logitech USB headset attached. Each time
a user begins a session on a new VM, after a recompose, Windows installs the USB headset and asks for a reboot. I want to eschew the reboot part of that by telling Windows the hardware Id beforehand. I'd like to go into the datacenter and just plug in the
USB headset to where the VDI VMs are located, but that option is not available or practical. I have the hardware Ids for the headset, I just need to know where to tell Windows 7 about them. The headset requires no specific drivers from Logitech, they work
out of the box, except for the reboot.

My dispaly adapter is a Geforce FX 5500 on a XP pro o/s.. After I reinstalled XP (for unrelated reasons) and the NVIDIA drivers, i now lose the adapter settings every time I reboot (computer starts up with a fail-sage generic vga driver). I then rerun the NVIDIA setup, The program says to reboot to use the new settings but rebooting only sends me back to the generic vga driver. However if after running the NVIDIA setup I do not reboot as instructed, the proper driver remains installed and I can set up my display as I want - until I again reboot..

I can't figure this one out

Sometimes, you have to disable your Anti-Virus program so it doesn't interfere with the driver installation.

A:VGA adapter missing in Device Manager

Hi thenerrus,

If you have a display on your laptop, the VGA is working. I seriously doubt you have two different video cards in that lap because they're not usually built that way, unless you had another on installed. The information you provided says you have an Nvidia card as your video adapter, trying to install the Intel drivers and having them fail also says you only have an Nvidia adapter installed.

So, unless you installed another video card or unsure what card you have installed in the laptop, I would suggest you look up your systems specs from the notebook manufacture and see what card is installed on the machine.

Good luck.

After using system restore my internet connection has a red x. I have seen this before so I went into device manager so see what's up. There is no network adapter listed. I did a scan for hardware changed and nothing. I have an Atheros network driver folder on my desktop so I ran the setup.exe and it appeared to install the driver. After a reboot nothing happens.

The windows 7 troubleshooter tells me, "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter. If you have a network adapter, you will need to re-install the driver."

The LAN connection is on my Asus p5ql-pro motherboard and I have downloaded the most recent driver from the website.

Was the driver you installed a win 7 driver? If not you need to install it in compatibility mode. To do that right click the installer>properties>compatibility>choose OS.

I tried finding some information in the archives about this problem but I guess I'm just a tiny bit confused. Anyway, I have a Sony Vaio laptop, model PCG-R505GCP, with a CD RW DVD-ROM. Up until yesterday it was working perfectly fine. I've made no changes to my system. But now I've discovered, through looking in Device Manager that the device cann't be found. This is the message I'm getting:

"Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardward device. (Code 41)"

This is what's listed in Device Manager under DVD/CD-ROM drives:
Sony i.LINK CD-RW DVD-ROM Drive IEEE 1394 SBP2 Device
It has a yellow exclaimation mark.

I was wondering if there might be someone who could help me figure this out.

Thanks so much!

A:windows not finding hardware device

Reboot the laptop into the BIOS by whatever means the opening screen tells you to use to go into setup. In the first of the menus, it should tell you whether or not it recognises the CDRW/DVDROM. Can you please post back one way or the other?

Alternatively, you could try uninstalling it in Device Manager and rebooting, then allow XP to redetect it, hopefully it will work that time.

I have this thing called HTREE\ROOT\0 on my system. I used's hardware identifier to find it. I am really at a loss here on what to say because I have had my vehicle stolen and I was moving and had valuable documents ie birth certificate....address's ect. ect. I know I need to report this all to financial institutions but whoever has been messing with me on the internet has cost me tons of dollars. They are somehow able to steal my data (i have to use mobile data b/c I lost my home) and waste countless hours of just frustrating that heck out of me. it's to the point I have almost lost my sanity. So ya can anyone shed some light on the HTREE\ROOT\0 thing?

I have a Dell Precision m60. It recently went bonkers on me. It first would only reboot in safedrive. When it did, it would not allow me to do safe with Internet. I tried sys restore. It went through the steps loading files and such, then said it was unable to restore. Then, while I was reading various message boards and spotted my first problem, my 'BOOT.INI' in my sys config was checked for safeboot. I have NO idea how. I never change that. First question is, HOW could that have happened? I was getting prompting to update AOL just b4 this whole mess started. It would appear to update, then AOL wouldn't start. After I changed the 'safeboot,' it starts normal, but, the device manager doesn't show any hardware. On occasion the CD drive works. The programs run as b4, but no networking available. I have surfed many boards and still no go. PLEASE help.

I've had Windows 7 installed for ages but just recently it has started doing something weird

When I start it up it doesn't recognise both my network card & USB ports(both on motherboard)

They are in the device manager wlth the yellow marks beside them, if I disable/enable them the work fine and the mark goes away.

But next time I do a restart it happens again.

any advice would be usefull

Hello, I need some help. I bought an old Sony PCG-FR130 laptop a bit ago and was going to format it and that's when I discovered the CD-RW DVD CRX-810E drive wasn't working. Here's the error: "
Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)"

I have re-flashed the BIOS from Sony's site and run a freeware registry repair (Glary), and uninstalled and re-installed the driver (HW) and driver (SW). No change.

Also; I have an error on the "PCI Simple Communications Controller". That error says that there is not a driver installed but when I un-install and reintall the device windows can't find a driver.

ANY help??

Can an outdated Peripheral be the cause for problems or incompatibility? I know that a USB 3.0 port would not be used to its full potential if a USB 1.1 flash drive would be plugged in. I am asking this in relation to my Video Card and Monitor, I am currently using a Dell LCD Monitor from about 5-8 years ago... I would like to know if the monitor could be the reason for FPS drops or such. Thats all and Thank You!

A:Hardware and Peripheral/Device Question

I think I can safely say that it is is no way your monitor that is the problem. The problem is that Geforce 210 video card you have. That card even when it was new was the lowest of the low end, and not much faster than what was available from Intel for integrated graphics. It was also never really made for gaming, more of a low cost HTPC option than anything.

You want to stop FPS drops and slowdowns, you're going to have to get a better video card.

I just built my first computer and installed xp sp2 until I can afford to purchase a better OS; I installed all drivers (correctly as far as I know); ISSUE #1: hooked up my two channel speakers on the 8 channel audio on the mother board, they worked but had a constant BUZZ. ISSUE #2: I kept getting "Found new hardware, audio device on high def bus. I reinstalled the driver that came with the board & still had these issues. I opend system properties & disabled the item with the yellow "!" (audio device on high def audio bus) which stopped the BUZZING & the found new hardware wizard from popping up. Everything seems to be working fine. Is this going to cause any issues in the future?

As the subject's an Acer Aspire One (8.9mini). I assumed it was a power scheme issue. Went to support website which mentions ePower Management (which would override Windows XP power schemes) but that's not installed on this machine. Tried Windows XP power schemes but no option for wireless lan (on or off based on power). Lan light functions the same (solid yellow) when plugged or unplugged. What could be causing problem or where is option to change setting? Thank you!

A:Wireless Internet Connection Lost only when AC adapter unplugged

Check this out:

I pulled this from the link above: "Go into System Properties, Hardware, Device Manager. Then go into Network Adapters, right click Atheros Wireless Network Adapter and choose Properties. In properties go to the Advanced tab, click on Power Save Mode and turn it off! No more issues since I turned it off and it even reactivated my wifi! I have not tried/tested the Normal setting yet, but it may also work. Apparently the power save feature of the network card glitches out and you can disable that useless feature."

I would advise assessing your situation before you so this...make sure you read the entire thread...good luck and welcome to TSG!
