Found by a phone call to ASRock tech support this motherboard has defective on board sound (thanks, ASRock) undocumented in their support forum, which is why there was a sound card. Removed the PCI bus sound card with a PCIe sound card, works AOK now.

I got mine going uninstalling all of the anti-virus (BitDefender free and Malware Bytes anti malware). It is possible an anti-virus update caused some kind of internal malfunction. This last thing SEEMED to have fixed it, but I did re-install Windows as a last result just previous to this. If uninstalling anti-virus doesn't work, do try an "in-place ...

A little bit of history will help you understand how things worked in the Windows 9x world. Since the Intel 80386, processors have had two "modes" of operation: Real Mode and Protected Mode. When you first turn your computer on -- even a modern Core i7 gaming rig -- the processor starts out in Real Mode. Real Mode provides no memory protection, no ...

I'm torn between two answers... IOBit's freeware Driver Booster for quick & easy... or Don't bother with anything except Graphics Drivers, direct from AMD/NVidia/Intel as the rest probably isn't worth it on a 4-year-old machine.

Finally! A number of people had the same problem and it was caused by AVG quarantining an audio file after the most recent Windows update. Restoring the files from the Virus Vault, and rebooting solved the problem. However, I inadvertently missed restoring some of the quarantined files having deleted them so my fix was to completely uninstall AVG, reboot, ...

First of all, getting drivers directly from the chip vendor's web site is absolutely the best way to go. The drivers that computer manufacturers post on their web site are almost always either old, or sometimes flat-out wrong. However, continually updating your drivers will not really make your computer perform faster. The only exception to this rule is ...

I uninstalled the driver, and restarted the computer. When I plugged the headset in, the system tray showed an installation in progress. After the installation, I noticed that the Controller Information in Microphone Properties and Speaker Properties showed Microsoft (don’t remember Microsoft being there before). (Maybe it’s because I used Windows ...

For anyone who's coming here in 2014: Just go to Device Manager, Other Devices, right click on whatever needs a driver and Browse my computer for driver software and choose the system32 folder from your old windows. Simple as that. You should be able to install all your drivers.

This is your wireless card's driver here. Two things you can do: Easiest Way: Go to Samsung's web site from another computer. Arm yourself with a USB flash drive and download the driver from their web site onto it. Sometimes, however, manufacturers do not have well oganized websites. They either list every driver for every card they've ever used in that ...

If it's complaining about services, then your best option is to look at the windows services. Try opening your start menu, typing services.msc and hitting enter. This brings up the service management window. From here you can look for any audio related services that are disabled and enable them. After that restart your PC and see if it works. If it doesn't, ...

In the old days (40's-70's) you bought a computer from a company which manufacturered or insourced its own hardware, wrote all its OS software, and most of its application software. The OS would only work on the sellers platform, using exactly the hardware they sold with the initial purchase. Applications were written in assembler, and would only work on ...

Driver most certainly comes with the taxi but he's not a pre-installed component of it. In your example, taxi is the hardware, you are the OS and driver should be a third entity. More precise example could be a rental car. What actually happens is that you (OS) hire a rental car (hardware) and use it with your (OS's) driving ability. But if you are ...

Since it's a physical problem, I don't think you can do much. You can try disassemble the speakers (maybe this link can help you with some instructions) from the laptop and see if their connectors are damaged. If you want to test them first before replacing them, it might be a bit of a problem if you're no good enough dealing with electronics. If you're not ...

i don't know offhand how to get that prompt to appear when you want it. But I can tell you why you're not getting it!

Yes you can! you need to get 2 folders c:\windows\system32\Drivers c:\windows\system32\DriverStore Also wouldn't hurt to get c:\windows\inf back up those folders, and when reinstalling windows just go to device manager and point to the location theses folders in the flash drive so if you back them up on a flash drive and the flash drive is F: lets say you ...

For a system-specific answer to my question, Dell XPS 13 has a USB Debug option in BIOS. When enabled, it forces the left USB port into 2.0/EHCI mode, while the right port stays 3.0. It remains to be seen if that helps the original problem.

This is likely impossible, or very device-specific. If it's at all possible, it would depend on how the 2.0/3.0 compatibility is handled by the system. I expect that low-level hardware and protocol detection, as well as management of transmission frequencies, is handled in the hardware/firmware - not the OS. If that's the case, then it would be entirely up ...

This may not be helpful to many users as there could have been a various different things that could have caused this as the previous answer suggests, in my case there was a problem with my drivers. I contacted Dell for support (which arguably I should have done in the first place), and they gave me the correct drivers for my machine. Bottom line in my ...

There are two potential solutions to this, depending on what is actually causing the problem. The first solution is to disable the ambient light sensor (ALS) in case your system has one, this can be done in the control panel, but it's faster to just type "sensor" in the start menu's search bar and it should bring up the corresponding control panel in the ...

Just go to Windows Update, look for the Geforce Driver (where currently the driver is marked as important update), disable and hide it. The concerning update can be found easily, if you search for new updates directly after reinstalling an older driver.

do you find it in device manager? http://pcsupport.about.com/od/windows-8/a/device-manager-windows-8.htm and it does sound like you have installed wrong driver, what kind of wifi card is it? atheros, broadcom, intel?

The code seems fine but it looks like you're sending this command at a time. Save it to a bat file and execute it from there, you'll probably see it works fine (although you will need to not include things like the start cmd.exe obviously)!

Your MacBook has a Broadcom BCM92070 bluetooth card which is actually an USB dongle. (it's sometimes soldered on some "hybrid" Wi-Fi+Bluetooth mini PCI-e cards but they work separately; see the linked question at the end if you're curious) That "dongle" requires a firmware to be loaded before it can be used, and it appears that some communication with it ...

This card is pure crap. I have the same one and I spent the last two hours trying to make it work on my Dell Latitude E6400. This card is actually two distinct parts glued together, one is a standard PCI Wi-Fi card that works fine, the second is a BCM92070 which is a USB Bluetooth module and it is attached to the USB lines of the mini PCI-Express port. The ...

I just had a similar experience to the previous late-poster. I have a Dell OptiPlex 9020 which came with 2 drives in a mirrored RAID configuration. I decided to break the mirroring and use the two drives as separate drives. So I reconfigured the setup of the RAID controller to see the two disks as two Non-RAID disks. Rebooted and everything was as ...

Head to Dell's site, and get the drivers for your version of Windows, for your laptop model. IE: http://www.dell.com/support/home/ie/en/iedhs1/product-support/product/inspiron-15-5547-laptop/drivers

You should make sure that the routing table and the DNS are correctly configured. To fix the first: sudo ip route add 192.168.2.0/24 dev eth1 sudo ip route add default via 192.168.2.1 and for the second, as sudo, add the folloing two lines to /etc/resolv.conf nameserver 8.8.8.8 nameserver 8.8.4.4

Try using group policies. Create a new GPO and head to Computer Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Printers -> Point and Print Restrictions. Enable that, and then under the "Security Prompts" section, set "When installing drivers for a new connection" and "When updating drivers for an existing connection" to "Do not show ...

ReactOS may be a re-creation of the NT kernel in general, but in order to work with Windows software it has to report itself as something recognizable. ReactOS is a server operating system so it currently reports itself as Windows Server 2003. I'm not sure which exact version of Windows Server 2003 though. Based on this it makes the most sense to use the ...

You can't delete the CDFS partition because it's not on the hard disk, it's on a write-protected flash memory chip (probably on the board inside the USB enclosure). It's there to provide some kind of feature from Toshiba, possibly OnSpec's password protection. The "ClickFree" brand of USB hard drives have something similar. There's a post here of someone ...

It appears your action of upgrading your graphics driver has caused your graphics adapter to set a default resolution far too high for your monitor to handle - hence it going into power saving mode. Ubuntu has probably booted in the background, but your monitor can't use the signal it is being supplied by your graphics card... Ubuntu is extremely resilient. ...

Use Shift-F8 to get into the troubleshooting options, then use System Restore. Details are here: http://www.howtogeek.com/107511/how-to-boot-into-safe-mode-on-windows-8-the-easy-way/ ...except that you don't need "Safe Mode". Follow that until you see the "Advanced" screen, then choose "System Restore".

I checked again and it turns out that it is indeed a hardware issue. When I initially checked there probably wasn't enough time for the problems to surface, or it had good days and bad days. But now as it progressed, it's obvious that the mouse is bad. It's evident in Safe Mode, as well as on another machine running Ubuntu. The mice have been damaged ...

Solved after discovering the issue is with the OS itself missing some important files which leads to failure in the OS, whatever driver I install does not work I also could install the IP v4 protocol..therefore repairing the OS solves the issue so later card drive updates enables the connection. Thanks for the help folks

Sometimes the most update driver doesn't mean its the best driver for you, there's issue with some hardware configuration beta drivers or bugs and etc. If the legacy vendor if giving you those instead the most update ones, trust them.
