Error - 80070005 When Trying To Download Drivers


Installed the new windows 7 home premium - machine was hosed, needed drivers. Of course not totally unexpected. Went to windows update site, was able to down load 6 out of 7 updates and installed with no problems. Also unable to down load from other sites as well.

The main one i needed was the video driver for nvidia card. 68 megs would fail everytime with error 80070005. Also fails at nvidia website.initially i thought the problem was a size issue, turned out not to be the case, a second update 387 kb for ethernet card also fails now.

Fyi, i tried: (thinking it was some kind of permissions problem)

B. Find the folder named: softwaredistribution
C. Rename that folder to something like softwaredistribution. Old
D. Create a new folder called softwaredistribution

Upon opening some of the sub folders it seems the file did infact download (a 70, 000 kb file appeared when i tried to down load the drive a second time). For some strange reason windows 7 does not recognize the file has down loaded and doesn't install it.

Restarted still gets the same error. Also i'm unable to down load other files from other sites. I get this message when trying to down load files from other sites. "Unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later. " I am the only user assigned to this computer, and yes i did give it a password.

Error 80070005

Can't get print drivers to download. Go to windows update, see driver, try to download, get error 80070005. I have tried a number of solutions i have found on the web. None work. I can't print! I have had this problem with two printers, most recently a canon i9900.

80070005 Error

Win 7 backup - part deaux

For starters, this nas is a qnap ts-239 pro running a version of linux with a pretty recent build date. Not the latest, but 3 weeks old. I have a userid on the box and am part of the administrators group on it. According to the nas, i have read/write to this folder in the access rights management. The unix permissions say 777, i am god. I also checked and have the same level of permissions on the folder i am trying to backup to.

Ran same job out to the nas with my userid and nas admin userid, same results - access is denied. Opened explorer, went to directory, did a right click and no one has permissions (from a windows point of view anyway) and i can not grant permission for any of the listed users. Bad windows!  Could be an issue with samba on the nas?

Will try a few things and check in later.

Backup Error 80070005

New win7 pro build. I have the os on an ssd and a 2nd 500gb drive set up as drive d. I was able to do a backup of the os disk (c:, ssd) to drive d without errors. Then i messed it up.

I was "fixing" ownership and permissions on drive d to resolve access issues to media i had copied onto drive d. Ownership is set to myself (user) and permissions are set to full access by administrator and myself. This was propagated from d: root through the whole drive. At this point, i noticed backups were broke. I've tried a few permissions and ownership settings on d, and deleted the two windowsbackup and windowsimagebackup folder on d:.

The create a system image / where do you want to save the backup? Screen says local disk (d:) - this drive is not a valid backup location. If i were to select an external usb drive, its happy, but that's not what i want to do.

I wish to clear out the prior backup settings and start fresh with backups going to d:. How to begin anew? What are the proper ownership and permissions on a target drive for windows backup?

Re Download Drivers

When i download a driver and try to expand/install it and it says down load error - down load again, which i download again but because the driver was downloaded before it does not actually download again, but shows in a split second that the driver has downloaded as (1). When i click the new downloaded driver it shows the same download error message. This is because the download begins from where the download stopped and not from the starting again, showing the same file from the hard disk.
Please tell me how to delete the cache file and re-download a fresh driver.

Download Error

I've downloaded (bought) windows 7 home premium yesterday, and the download (with microsoft download manager) went fine, but when i tried to open the file called windows 7 home premium (it's a 3-part download (setup1, setup2 and "windows 7. ")) A loadingbar comes up on the screen, but it only complete a litle bit (think it needs to unpack, so the thing thats supposed to happen is that you click on the windows 7. File, and then it'll unpack automatically, and spread files all over the folder, witch i btw placed on the c-drive) and then it says, that there's an error with the file, and that it may be damaged.

And if i try to open on of the setup-files, it tells me to choose a program to open it with, and i've tried word, adobe, internet and thinks like that, but nothing works. So that don't work either. ?

I've tried to download the files 3 times now, and i've also tried to download the 64-bit windows 7 - but same problem.

It's a litle - well, very complicated, but please help me, if you know what to do, or have a idea (any ideas will work!)  - I've payed 100£ for something, so it would be nice, if it would work.

Error - You Need To Download Flash

Windows 7 on a 64 bit system thus all ie games just error message " you need to download flash. Just click here. " Abode does not have a flash for 64 bit sys _susann_love my new 4g win 7 hp laptop. The games impacted, on my system and it seems to be related to the 64-bit sys i bought, are on gsn.com & comcast.net games:

1. I ran the troubleshooting option, as these games worked on my xp system, with both service packs 2 and 3, which were downloaded immediately.
2. Java uploaded a patch immediately as well.

All seemed well with the world until this morning when i launched a trivia game on comcast and got that same error message. The troubleshooter did not recognize the program, tried to fo its thing and ran a check and said try the online support group. Basically i think comcast games may have some funky code - that it my interpretation, not microsoft.

Fyi - pogo.com games were always 100% ok.

Error Code 28 - Drivers Not Installed

Trying to use my canon lide 35 scanner on my new hp laptop w/win7, but win7 says drivers are not loaded for this usb device. It recognizes the scanner name as "canoscan" when the usb cable is inserted, but does not allow the drivers to be uploaded (update driver is greyed out) and driver update tab claims no drivers are needed or have been loaded for this device. Windows cannot find the driver online, and cannot find the downloaded driver (downloaded on canon site for win7 today) either.

Lx-3000 Headset Error Installing Drivers

I'm having trouble with my lx-3000 headset. I just installed windows 7 pro and the headset was working fine for a bit. I moved the headset to a different usb port and the os tried to reinstall the drivers. I then got an error message that told me the device was not recognized. I moved it back to the other port, i have deleted the drivers and done a shut down & reboot, and have had no luck at all. I've installed the life-chat, too. No help there either. The usb port that i moved it to was a port on the front of the tower. I'm not sure if i had the plugs reversed on the motherboard or something. I just don't know.

Error 31 - Cannot Install Network Drivers - Installation Was Interrupted

Cannot install drivers for networking, error 31, goes 90% complete then "installation was interrupted". This morning i turned on my dell 1640xps laptop and got a screen resolution like 'safe mode' and a dialogue box showing progress of updating every driver i had. Had the machine 6 months and never seen this before. After the install my network drivers were reported as unsuccessful.

Used another machine to access internet and download new drivers but as the installation neared completion it reported an error 31, windows installer was interrupted, no driver installed. I've been working at this for 10 hours now and finally restored my machine to yesterday's config. What program did this? Something in windows update?

Ati Catalyst Control Error - There Are No Compatible Drivers Installed

Ati catalyst control error "there are no compatible drivers installed" for ati radeon x1600. I have two ati radeon x1600 video cards, everytime i boot up ati catalyst control fails to start saying that there are no compatible drivers installed and if i right click and pick screen resolution and go to advanced there is no adapter and it say that everything is unavailable.

But if i go to device manager i can see that the driver is installed and up to date. There may be a chance that its only detecting one of the two card, and that the one its detecting is the secondary so that the primary is reverting to vgasave, but i still cant access either of them.

Cannot Download Anything

I have windows vista office ultimate and am using ie8 as my browser. I can't download anything. Anytime i try to open/run/save a file it just disappears. When downloading it will go 99% and then just go away. I don't know when the problem started exactly. I take online classes that require me to get files through internet explorer to do my coursework. I've tried everything i knew how to do (short of just completely reinstalling my operating system). I'm not the greatest with computers so please try to use "layman" terms.

Cannot Download As Administrator

We received two brand new hp6241f pcs running windows 7 from future shop here in canada. I got home tonight from work and found my dad still sitting in front of the first, trying to get it set up. At that point he was trying to activate the 60-day ms office trial but every time he clicked the link to get a key he'd get a message saying he wasn't connected to the internet. I confirmed that he was; we can totally surf.

I found another way of getting the key but kept getting redirected to a bing page that said "we are unable to find [url]. "

I tried a few times, figured it was a bad link and decided to move on. I went to download windows live mail.

Same stupid thing. The download page would load, the download would be about to begin and the redirect would happen again.

I've tried downloading firefox and ccleaner - same problem.

I've browsed forum after forum and answer after answer. There's only one user and she's identified as administrator.

I played with security settings up the yin/yang. I do hi-speed internet technical support for a living so i can easily disable common stuff. I followed some instructions to make changes of the user controls but full control is already enabled.

I'm at my wits end and hating win7. There are too damn many security options, if you ask me. Too many to find, apparently, because nothing i've done is working.

Opk Download

For the past several days, i have been trying to download the win 7 opk (oem pre-installation kit) with no luck. Have downloaded all the relevant docs & videos then started the opk download. It did request that i use the bits ie plug-in, which was done, but i find that it doesn't seem to work with win 7. The 1st download ended after only 17% stating that it was not downloaded due to the connection to the server being reset.

Tried again late last night hoping that it would be completed by the time i get back to it today, but found it failed again after 60% with the same failure. Any idea as to how i can get a complete download of the opk?

Ie And Bing - Can't Download

I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Download Win 7 Isos

Bought the ultimate disk from newegg as a preorder and wrote it off as a business expense. Almost 4 months down the line, i found the disk was scratched when i cleaned out my disk storage drawer. Was going to upgrade my hard drives today, but don't want to risk an operational system if the disk can't be read during installation. Is there a way to download the disk w/o relying on torrents or pirate sites. I already looked at microsoft.com, but it looks like i'll have to purchase a full disk from them and newegg doesn't do windows downloads from what i've seen either.
