I've looked at xperf traces of several users and here the function ntoskrnl.exe!SmKmStoreHelperWorker of the Kernel starts to allocate memory. (Click image to enlarge) I discovered this on sysinternals. I've asked Microsoft about it and the answer is that this is by design. It is related to System Memory compression. In the announcement of Windows 10 ...

I had the same problem as well. The issue seems to be that the Bootcamp software is looking for the correct Realtek drivers, but can't find them so it just hangs. To fix it, manually install the drivers from Realtek while the Bootcamp setup is running. Then, go to Task Manager, find the Setup process, right click and press Go to details. Then find the ...

Do I need a separate OpenGL installation/upgrade or has it to be included into my graphic card driver? Where can I get it? OpenGL can't be "upgraded", and it must be included with your graphics driver. OpenGL exposes GPU hardware capabilities to the operating system. If your GPU hardware were more capable, it could support later revisions of OpenGL on ...

After a lot of frustrating time wasted on Google, I thought about using Sysinternal's Process Monitor. It is a handy tool for spying on various things a process does under the hood, and one of these things is which registry keys it tries to access. Using this tool, I discovered that the IRST installer was accessing the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\...

Finally I solved the problem. The cause of the error "A media driver your computer needs is missing" may be that the ISO image is corrupt. I did not expect that because I downloaded the entire 4 GB image directly from Microsoft without any error from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10ISO As Microsoft does not provide a hash I ...

Not true, here is one mounted in my W10 build 10162

I had the same problem. Also tried reinstalling my drivers, did not work. This is what worked for me: Right click "Start" and select "Control Panel" (Open classic Control Panel) In the right corner -> View by: "Small Icons" Display Change Display Settings Now you will see the traditional display configuration screen. Select ("black/gray") extended ...

Nope. Typically I immediately throw driver cds out. For most motherboards and OEM software I look up what I have and download the latest drivers from the website for that motherboard or laptop For stuff like video cards on a desktop using bleeding edge drivers is the best idea. Windows typically would pull in known good/older drivers that are good enough ...

By going into services.msc (via Win+R) and disabling Superfetch completely solves this. I am not sure if Superfetch is just broken as of now or it's "by design". In addition, apparently getting rid of the paging file will have the same effect but the above solution is a safer bet.

After 2 hours of angry web searching, I posted this question. And of course the next search I did yielded the answer I was looking for; Note: Make sure your windows upgrade has been activated before you perform a clean installation! Performing a clean installation with the Windows 10 ISO with the network cable disconnected seems to be the way to go. After ...

Asus has a hard to find downloads section where you can grab latest versions of some apps and drivers. Follow this link and click Change Your Model, a window will appear. Select Notebook in the left column and then don't select your laptop model. Between laptop models in the center column there are some interesting items: Apps Apps for Win8 Apps for Win8....

This is an old card from 2003 build around the RV280 GPU.Searching on this GPU we find that it supports OpenGL 1.4. That means no hardware support for OpenGL 2.1. You either need a new card, or you need to emulate this in software. Emulating can work but will be very slow, making it a poor choice for gaming.

From the Ubuntu Wiki: Many devices have two essential software pieces that make them function in your operating system. The first is a working driver, which is the software that lets your system talk to the hardware. The second is firmware, which is usually a small piece of code that is uploaded directly to the device for it to function correctly. You ...

I did a little more hunting online and found this link to a blog that said they'd found the driver for the chipset in the adapter, and convinced it to work. I followed a variant on their instructions, and it worked for me too. Here are the steps I used: Plug in the adapter while the computer is running. Check Device Manager (you can get there by right-...

I just tried the sp4 with the linuxmint-17.3-cinnamon-64bit.iso image. What did NOT work was all input attached Keypad and touch pad, screen input and Bluetooth. But wlan DOES work, attached USB-keyboard/mouse work as expected and screen shine in full resolution out of the box.

I think the current answer don’t appropriately capture the difference. Windows also has most drivers available (like USB Mass Storage or HID). They reside in separate files, of course. This is very similar to most generic Linux kernel builds that have their drivers in separate modules. However, Windows will create a separate device instance for each device, ...

You cannot increase it beyond the manufacturers parameters. Get a good gaming KB, and it will allow you to set it even up to 1000, but those were designed to support values that high. The manufacturers driver will allow you to set various values usually between 100 and 1000.

You can add a DWORD value with Regedit to disable that behaviour: In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ASUS\ASUS Smart Gesture Add the DWORD AutoSetMaxPower, set it to 0 and reboot.

A virtual machine does not have access to physical device in your computer & hence you cannot install native drivers in the guest machine. All the devices are emulated by the virtual machine (Hypervisor if we are to say it more accurately) You should start with adding virtual guest additions & refer to learn how to emulate 2D/3D acceleration in ...

I would let Windows install drivers through Windows Update, then install missing/misbehaving ones. This assumes that you already have Ethernet or Wi-Fi working, otherwise Windows Update would be unable to download anything (obviously). You can determine which drivers are missing by using Device Manager. Fastest way to access it in Windows 10 is to right-...

OK did a Windows logo key -R. entered regedit. Went to HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi Under it I created a folder called 'Controller0' In Controller0 I did a 'New' (left click) and typed in 'EnumDevice1' as 'RegDWORD' and modified it to binary '1' in hex. Exit regedit and restart computer After the restart, I can now see ...

ASUS support site is not very user friendly πŸ‘Ž. I made a post with all the ASUS drivers for Windows 10 πŸ‘, including ATK Package. Here you can find ATK Package 1.0.0044, for 64-bit and 32-bit versions.

Have a look if your onboard audio interface is disabled in the BIOS. If so, you could enable it and use in in the meantime until there are drivers for you card on win 10. Have you tried to install the drivers for Win 8.1 for your card? I think so, just for sake of completion. Another way could be to remove your xfi and then see if Win10 detects the onboard ...

My question is, why aren't drivers for a particular device stored on the device itself? This would mean the device would need to have storage and the operating system would have to access it. There are security concerns with storage devices in some cases. It overall is a bad solution to a problem that can be solved by simply downloading the driver ...

Comments to your actions... Related with the drivers what I tried it is to right click that microphone symbol and press "Properties". Here I press again to "Properties" and after "Change configuration". Now in the tab "Driver" I pressed "Update Driver..." and I had to reboot the computer when it finish. After that, nothing changes. You probably have ...

No big risk. If you have the Sony 259.57 driver at hand, you can try to install the latest nVidia-driver. If it doesn't work, you can go back to the Sony-driver (using safe mode if needed).
