Emachine Intel D945gcl Motherboard Problem

There's no way to get my addition system information back is there?I have an emachine owned by gateway of course. Anyway, emachines support had me use a gateway update that is also on the emachines site to update my bios. Everything was fine, but yesterday i was feeling quirky and tried something. My computer was off and i pressed the power button in for about 4 seconds. It came on and then turned off. I pressed the button again like normal and no boot screen.

I switched off the power in back, switch it on and pressed power again. Boot screen now with a gateway logo, cool, i thought. Only problem is that the addition system information in the intel d945gcl motherboard board is now corrupt except for the lan mac address. I'm out of warranty so i assume there is nothing i can do, is there? There is no way to flash the bios now as it no longer knows the information.

Configuring 5.1 Audio In 64-bit / Intel D945gcpe Motherboard

I have windows 7 professional 64 bit running on a system with the intel d945gcpe mother board that comes with realtek hd audio thing built into it. However i am not able to configure windows to use all three audio 3. 5mm jacks at the back to output 5. 1 surround sound (my speaker's input consists of three 3. 5mm jacks that i used to plug into the three slots at the back of my cpu). I was able to do this in windows xp just by selecting "5. 1 surround sound" under speaker type in the realtek software as well as in control panel. However in windows 7, this option is greyed out in the realtek audio manager. I am unable to find an option to change to 5. 1 audio setup in "control panel->sound" too. So how do i setup my speakers? In addition to the internal audio thing, i have a pci sound card (creative sound blaster 5. 1), however it is not supported in windows 7 yet, so i have to use the realtek thing.

Ati Hd 3400 Driver For Intel

Recently i have installed windows 7 build 7100 with laptop (intel centrino 2, ati radeon hd3470). Just checked the "performance information and tools" and did the assessment, following is my results:

Processor 5. 5
Memory 5. 6
Graphics 3. 5
Gaming graphics 5. 1
Harddisk 5. 1

I've got a fairly good results except "graphics" part and i reckon my computer can perform better. It seems that my computer is using the "generic" driver for it, does anyone know is there any drivers available which could correct this?

P. S. I've tried the amd ati driver for this and of course it wont work on an intel computer. Please does anyone know how to solve this?

Win 7 64-bit Amd Vs Intel

Intel duao core quad, 2. 5 ghz, amd phenomenon 2. 5 ghz, both installed on raid0, another raid0 for hd video editing. Using win xp on both machine with same programs, intel is faster by max 10%, now after installed win7 64bit it seems that now amd machine is doing encoding and editing much faster about 5 to 10%and much more reliable. The amd machine never hanged up crashed and gives me no headache, but the intel hangs up is slower in encoding and opening multiple windows sometimes crashes the machine.
May this be due to the true quad core design of the amd than just having intel running two dual cores paralell? Is win7 64 bit favoring amd design?

Any comments on this or any experience on this topic.

Error Code - 43 On Intel Graphics Adapter

I recently upgraded my bios and sometime after that any graphics application doesn't work on my computer like games or windows 7 aero. I downgraded the bios again but it doesn't help. I installed xp on that computer and everything works fine on that but in windows 7 i get an exclamation mark on the display adapter, when i goto properties the following message comes up.

Windows has stopped the device because it has a problem. Error code :43

It may be a hardware problem but then how come it works fine on xp?

Mobile Intel(r) 4 Series Graphics Problem

I recently got a new laptop with windows 7 already installed on it. Sorry if this problem has already been asked before but i couldn't find anybody else with the same issue that i have. Sometimes, the graphics would become all distorted and weird looking. Check out the screen shot that i took:

And it occurs for every program, not just on the desktop. I could usually get rid of the lines by minimizing the window and maximizing it again. But it's just so annoying. My graphics card is a mobile intel(r) 4 series express chipset family. I updated the driver last night but the same thing still occurs. So i don't know what else could be the problem.

Intel Usb Host Controller Drivers

I installed windows 7 on an ibm thinkpad t41 laptop. I realize that this is an older laptop and is not the best choice for windows 7. However, i first installed the rc release on it (a little while back) and everything (except for areo, etc) worked just fine. Now, with this new fully licensed copy of 7, the drivers for the usb host controller are not loading correctly. They appear to be present, but they are not working. In device manager, there is a yellow ! Next to each entry under usb, and inserting a usb drive produces nothing.

I first asked intel about it. They said it is a microsoft issue. They said they manufacture the host controller, but microsoft makes the drivers. This is an intel 82801db/dbm enhanced usb host controller and there are 4 or 5 similar entries for it under usb in device manager.

I don't know why it would work without issue when using the rc and not this new installation. I have disabled, and completely removed the device/drivers from within device manager and rebooted to allow windows to reload the device(s)/driver(s) but that didn't help. I have tried downloading driver installations from intel and that also did nothing for me. I have checked windows update several times manually, and using the update driver button tells me "windows has determined i have the most current drivers".

Update Disabling Intel Wifi Adapter

I recently purchased a vaio laptop for the widi capabilities. Out of the box it worked as advertised, but after a round of various updates from microsoft and sony, the widi becomes disabled. The message that appears is: my intel wifi technology disabled, please restart your computer. Another message that appears is: my intel wifi technology: adapter not found. I've poured over all the vendor community postings (intel, netgear, sony) regarding this issue but no one seems to have come up with a solution.

The only method for recovery is to do a complete system restore which puts everything back to factory settings. Once i do that, it works for a little bit until the updates download again. I've tried turning off the auto updates and i've ensured that all the latest drivers were installed (even after doing a complete system restore) but nothing seems to prevent the adapter from becoming disabled. I don't have any issues with the wifi, only the widi. This issue seems to be affecting all brands with widi capabilities. I'm not sure if it's affecting only intel i5s or both i5s and i7s. Any one have any other suggestions?

Network Issue With Intel 82567lm Adapter

We have several dell latitude e4200/4300 laptops that run windows 7 and have the intel 82567lm nic installed. We have a major issue with them when attached to our domain, windows 2003 active directory, in that they loose network connectivity in certain circumstances. When they are not members of the domain this does not happen. We receive no error messages, the cards just stop working. I'm not sure if this is the nic driver failing or a windows component.

Installing Win 7 Using Intel Ich10r Raid

Installing windows 7 on system using intel ich10r raid and xp os. I am trying to upgrade from windows xp to windows 7 professional. My computer has an msi p45 neo3 fr motherboard and is set up with raid 1. When i try to install windows 7 i get a prompt for a driver disk. It will not accept either the msi drivers and utilities disk for vista or the raid controller floppy and will not allow me to continue. I was able to bypass that step and get it to install but i now have a black screen. How do i get the correct drivers for this set up? Will windows 7 work with this motherboard or do i need to get a refund and wait until i am ready to build a new system?

Intel D955xbk Sound Driver For 64-bit

Ive recently re-installed windows 7 64-bit on my home computer which i use as a media center. Im having a problem with the drivers from intels site for the on-board sound for the d955xbk motherboard. I have to use the vista 64-bit driver and then specifically add the driver via the device drivers update section. The problem is that this all works fine until i exit media center then try and reload it. It hangs on a black blank screen as if media center is trying to process something but it never does.

When i try to force a shut down it then hangs on playing windows shut down sound. It seems the sound driver is reverting back to an old installed driver each time i shut media center down. So i have to go into device manger uninstall the present driver (ticking the completely remove the driver) then go through the install as above for the vista 64-bit driver. This is all getting a pain unistalled the sound driver all the time. Any help people or do i need to face that my motherboard is not supported by windows 7 64-bit drivers?

Intel 82566mm Gigabit Network Card Not Working

I have dual booted my lenovo x61 laptop with vista business and windows 7 home premium. My intel 82566mm gigabit network connection works correctly in vista. In win 7 it will not install correctly. My win 7 is fully up to date, my lenovo system update is fully up to date. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling. I have tried lenovo's driver download.

The symptoms are that the card tries to activate during boot up but the system tray icon then changes to the red cross. In device manager the icon has a yellow warning with the message "this device is not working properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device. (Code 31)". The driver that the device is pointing to is ele6032.sys

Does Intel Gma 900 Work With Win7 Aero?

Does intel gma 900 work with windows 7 aero? Is there a wddm driver for it now? I have seen this similar question on a previous post but the answer said wait till windows 7 is actually released so i wanted to know if intel gma 900 910gl/915gl can run aero. It is theoretically possible because it has directx 9 and pixel shader 2. 0 support. Intel is just not honoring that it is compatible. I was wondering if a wddm driver has come out for it now.

Can microsoft create a driver for gma 900 since it is compatible yet no driver is allowing it to work. If anyone has tried gma 900 on windows 7, tell me if aero works. If anyone has a wddm driver for it please post a link.

New Motherboard

I just installed a new motherboard in to my pc and now windows crashes when it tries to start up. I understand that windows has difficulty with recognizing new motherboards when the drivers for an old one are still installed. Problem is, when i try to run windows recovery from either the hard drive it tells me 'windows failed to start' and that a recent hardware change may be the problem. Ok. So i tried to boot from my windows 7 cd to run a recovery off of that but it still gives me the same error 'windows failed to start' 

I'm a bit baffled as to how i get past this point. I have all my important files backed up on another hard drive so i would just re-install windows if i could but i can't even get to a menu to give me the option of wiping my hard drive. One of my buddies suggested just going out and buying a new, blank hard drive and installing windows on that but i would rather not. Any suggestions?

New motherboard is asus m4a785-m

Mpc / Vlc Freeze / Intel Matrix Raid Controller

I'm running windows 7 x64 with latest x64 versions of vlc & media player classic hc. Every so often when playing video files with either, my system will lock up. If something like music or another video is playing in the background i can still hear it but my screen is completely frozen - mouse and keyboard do nothing. The only way out is to cut power.

I came across this post (http://social. Answers.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/w7pictures/thread/d5cd90f8-edda-46fb-aca7-fd9834f728e5) which seems to assign blame to the intel matrix storage controller which i am using to control my raid-1 array. This thread doesn't really seem to have a fix for the problem, short of using a different player, or an explanation as to why it happens.

Dell 5150 Problem With Intel 537 Pci Modem

I have a dell dimensions 5150 with upgrades that i can list out as needed. I recently upgraded os from win xp-32 to win 7-64. So far all things are 'a' okay with the exception of the internet losing it's connection very randomly. The only way that i've been able to get the internet back is by re-starting windows. The internet to this pc is hard wired to a d-link dir-655 router that hasn't had any issues but for the record my firmware is utd and i've moved my cable to a different port on the router and still same problem. I then checked driver updates. See images below-apparently there is a problem with this pci modem driver and i can't find any details about it on the internet.

Furthermore, i don't even know if it would be a source of my particular problem. The network adapter intel(r) pro/100 ve shows no errors but i thought i might flash the driver anyways just to be sure. However according to intel.com this adapter only has 'in box' driver support for windows 7 therefore there isn't much in the way that the site offers as far as downloads. I'll stop here in hopes that i have provided enough info for someone to help get this sorted out. If not i'll provide as much info as i can.

Motherboard Dead

My windows 7 64 bit system failed to boot with a motherboard failure. It is an abit board and they are no longer in business.

The boot drive is in fine shape the boot sequence fortunately did not get to the operating system bootstrap. But of course the installed system is expecting an abit board.

How do i recover with a new motherboard.

1. Do i attempt to do a repair from the windows 7 dvd
2. Or do i attempt to do a reinstall from windows 7 dvd.

Of course i cannot run easy-transfer as the original system is no longer available. My main issue (but not the only one) is to recover live mail as is with all its emails and contacts in place.

What i am really asking i think is, will a repair be able to deal with the differences between the new hardware a p45 chipset, while the system, drivers etc. , Is expecting a p965 chipset or will it just collapse in a mess. Or is there some way of pointing easytransfer to a drive other than the current boot drive.

Motherboard Failure

My motherboard has failed catastrophically and must be replaced. I cannot obtain the same board again so have ordered one which is compatible with my ram, cpu, hard drive and other peripherals which are all believed to be ok.

My os is retail (not oem) windows 7 home premium upgrade 64 bit (previously had vista home premium retail). Assuming all the hardware behaves properly, how will win 7 on the existing hard drive respond to the new hardware? Will i have to re-activate windows and will it guide me through that?

Motherboard Replacement

I need to replace my motherboard/processor/memory soon and was wondering if i am going to have to do a complete reinstall of windows 7 or can i just do a "repair" after replacing the hardware? I have searched everywhere i can think of on the web and can't ge a definitive answer. Currently i have a dell pentium d running windows 7 with 4g memory but since eventually the pentium d will be obsolete (eventually? Like last year!) I want to upgrade to a phenomii or i7 processor. I remember trying to do this with windows 98 and xp (and it was a major pain for both) so i wanted to know what i would be in for with windows 7.
