Kb980232 And Sound Drivers


I'm trying to install windows 7 ultimate x64 in a desktop with some aging parts.

Asus a8v deluxe motherboard
150gb pata hard drive
2gb ddr400 corsair memory
Ati radeon x800 pro agp graphic card
Amd athlon 64 x2 4200+ processor
Creative sound blaster audigy2 zs platinum sound card

Windows 7 x64 installs smoothly until i tried to install sound drivers and update it through windows update. Whenever i try to install the driver for the creative sound card or the on-board sound device, windows would freeze right before the 4 light orbs show up at the "starting windows" screen after restarts.

The same freeze also occurs when i try to install security update for windows vista for x64-based systems (kb980232) through windows update. The freeze does not occur if i download kb980232 from download center and installed separately.

Windows 7 is installed on a clean ntfs pata hard drive. I've tried installing the creative sound card drivers both through windows update and from creative's website to no success. I've tried the windows xp 64 driver for the creative sound card, but the problem still persists. Same freeze occurs when i remove the creative card, reinstalled windows and tried to install the driver for the on-board sound device.

Sound Drivers Recognised But No Sound

The install is activated and running perfectly except for there being no sound. The drivers say they are installed, and when there should be sound, i can see the volume activity in the volume slider, but nothing is coming out of the speakers or headphone socket. I have soundmax integrated audio driver on my toshiba qosmio laptop. Everything works fine in xp. I hope someone can shed some light as it's very very frustrating.

Win 7 Losing Sound Drivers Repeatedly

I am using windows 7 ultimate. I recently changed out my mother board and am using the onboard sound. It is an asus k8v-vm motherboard. Since making this change every time my computer is shut down for more than an hour, i lose my sound drivers and have to reinstall them when i start my computer. I can restart and it does not do it, the computer has to be shut down for some time. It is almost as if it is trying to restore the settings to the original motherboard. Is there anyway that i can correct this issue?

Is "stereo Mix" Install Into Updated Sound Card Drivers ?

I just recently upgraded my cpu sound card software, and i noticed that the "stereo mix" option that was in the previous installs was not in the updated software. I use the "stereo mix" option to sometimes broadcast music through my computer during a live broadcast, at times. I feel as i won't be able to this feature any longer.

The sound card my cpu has is realtek i upgraded to version 2. 36 from version 2. 16 or 2. 26 i believe and these upgrades both had the "stereo mix" is there anyone to bring back the "stereo mix" with the upgraded software, or do i have to downgrade back to the older versions.

P. S. The other versions was vista based but still worked with windows 7, but had a few problems so i googled and found that realtek had made this software for windows 7.

Creative Sb0490 Usb Sound Blaster External Sound Card

My external sound blaster card sb0490 works on my xp machine. When connected to my windows 7 machine almost everything except creative mediasource player gives the error message "the audio device supported by this application is not detected". The mediasouce player works ok.

The driver is usb_w7drv_lb_1_01_0099. The usb bus controller is "usb composite device" using driver file usbccgp.sys version 6. 1. 7600. 16385 (win7_rtm. 090713-1255). An update search confirms this driver software is up to date. The windows 7 compatibility center reports "information coming soon" for this hardware. Has anybody a solution?

Win 7 No Sound - Creative Sound Card

After upgrading to windows 7 i have had no sound. My system says that there is an onboard audio device, sigmatel high definition audio. Which when checking the sound configuration as suggested by another post, it says it has no problems when troubleshooting, and it has sound going to it (as indicated by the sound meter), however no sound. When i switch to the creative sb x-fi sound card, which is the one that i have sound jacks for, there is no sound going to the speakers.

I have tried disabling the integrated sound card (sigma tel) in the bios as well as in the device manger, no luck on any option. I have downloaded the latest drivers for both the sigmatel and the x-fi, with no luck on either occasion.

Sound Blaster X-fi Sound Card Not Detected

My pc is just over a year old and works fine in all respects with visa 32 bit. The sound card is a sound blaster x-fi and 5. 1 speakers, 2 gigs of memory and quad core. I shrunk the drive to create a partition etc and installed windows 7 in the new partition ( installed this whilst in vista and not from a boot sequence. Booting from the dvd hung at the blue screen with no options to continue). Anyway the installation went fine and boots in to windows with no problems. Except the sound card was not detected.

Using the original driver disk does not update anything, i.e. Pointing to it whilst in update driver mode. Installing from the disk fails at the drivers part of installation on 15 or so dll's. After which in the sound section it now says no audio devices are installed. Before the installation there was one item in this secion, a spdif icon. There was no sound though even though this item was present. Btw, onboard sound is de-activated in the bios.

Booting into vista form the option screen and all is working fine. Any ideas would be most welcome. I have one other small problem when i try and run an online game (eq) it throws up an error message saying cannot access memory at 0x00000044 and promptly closes down when the ok box is clicked. Other than this i like windows 7.

No Sound In Ie8 / Sound Quality Issue

For some reason, my computer randomly quits playing sound at all in ie. I can watch youtube silently. No sound on hulu, or any other streaming site. I managed to fix the problem once by uninstalling and reinstalling flash player, but that seems to be unrelated to the actual problem because it's happened again and the solution no longer works. In media player, i get a random crackle every few seconds, just enough to be really frustrating. It's not my speakers: i played the audio through headphones (connected through a separate jack) in order to check. All sound drivers are up-to-date, and the whole system was working fine two days ago. No software changes have been made except for an update to adobe reader.

Recorded Tv No Sound But Live Tv Sound

Whenever i record tv it has about a 90% chance of not recording sound. If i can catch it within the first few minutes of recording i would put it to live tv (where there is sound) and hit record, and then it would record with sound.

I have googled looking for the solution to this, and have tried a few things but nothing is working.
I have just one tuner.
I never had any problems with vista or xp just windows 7!

I think it may have something to do with a show that is recording when the computer comes from sleep mode, say if the computer is being used or is not in sleep mode, it will record the sound, maybe if i had 2 shows recording in succession, the second show would record while the first one wouldn't have sound?

No Sound When Using Sound Blaster Live

I have no issues when using sound blaster live 5. 1 for windows 2000 and windows xp. However, i upgraded windows xp to windows 7, the program couldn't recognize the sound blaster card. Regardless how many times i have downloaded the driver from internet, cd-rom or checking the sound card, there is still no result. I even bought the driver wizard program but it couldn't recognize the sound card either. I hope anyone could give me some suggestions of how to fix this problem.

Updating Drivers

I ran vista 64 on this custom pc for 2 years and upgraded to win 7. I had it running well for about a month until i started getting lots of updates for drivers, like atapi, 1394, atk 0110 etc. Installing these "updates" over time began to give me lock ups and bsods. I sort of just took windows word for it and installed these drivers, knowing full well that windows has tried to give me the wrong drivers in the past (gpu, monitor, sound card to name a few).

Im on my 6th install of win 7 so ive decided to update all drivers manually in the future. Im pretty familiar with updating drivers for devices like the gpu, mobo (nforce), monitor, mouse, sound card etc but im unsure about updating several other devices. These devices have windows generic drivers dating back to 2006 and include :

Acpi x64
Wdc scsi disk device
Ide ata/atapi controllers (ata 0, 1, pci ide generic)
1394 bus controller
Usb's

It should be noted that ive been sent windows updates for atapi, atk 0110, ehci (usb updates), 1394
My board is an asus striker ii extreme. From their website i can get the drivers for :jmicron(raid controller), nforce (though its outdated), onboard audio and atk 0110 and install them on top of the generic drivers. But that leaves me with quite a few other drivers missing. Atapi, ehci, 1394. Where would i get these?

Blocked Drivers

I got a new hp 610 laptop with windows 7 home basic operating system. On installing the "total protection" it gave me an error saying that a driver. Had been blocked by the operating system and disabled. It is not giving me an indication as to which driver it is.

It must be something to do with the firewall because i cannot get it to switch on. I have total protection running on my pc and previously on my other laptop but they were running on xp pro.
Have you had something like this before?

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.

How To Upgrade Drivers?

I have been using win7 for the past few weeks and it was great! The only thing i didn't like about it that it didn't have aero in it. I did the windows experience index and it was 1. 0 :(. I checked out the "troubleshoot transparency and other aero effects" thing, and it said this: "video card driver does not support aero. " How do i update my 'video card'? The win7 os is on my desktop computer. I had to format win xp and install win7.

Oh, also, heres a few details of the pc:
Os: windows 7 ultimate
Ram: 512 mb
Processor: intel® pentium® 4 cpu 1. 60ghz
Video card:? How do i find the v. C. ?

All Drivers For Win7

I own a lenovo laptop and recently upgraded to windows 7 ultimate version (x32), but i lack a lot of drivers now. Lenovo service center denied to give any specific help as they don't guarantee driver availability for windows 7 ultimate version, but only for home/basic editions. So i am rendered helpless.

I am getting errors in drivers of bluetooth, chipset, touchpad, camera etc mainly. Can anybody please guide me where i can get all the compatible basic drivers needed in my laptop? Considering me a layman about technology, please keep it simple and specific.

Hp Drivers Vs Win 7

My employer bought a new dell laptop with windows 7. We have an hp laserjet 3030 plc6 on a machine running xp pro, and, an hp laserjet 4050 plc6 on another machine running xp pro. I connected the windows 7 machine via local network to the xp pro machines. I installed and can use the 4050 printer with no problems. However, i tried to install the 3030 on to the new laptop, and it tells me that no suitable driver was found. I downloaded both plc5 and plc6 universal drivers from hp, for windows 7. Still will not work.

Prior to that, i tried connecting the 3030 directly to the laptop via usb, and it works fine!
Why can't the laptop find the driver, which was installed within windows 7 from the beginning, when i am using it as a shared device on another machine?

Radeon X1300 Drivers

I have downloaded the drivers for vista/windows 7 catalyst 9. 3 and they don't install when i run the installer. The log says it failed. I am unable to rate the system and i think it because of the video card/drivers. The drivers are the windows wmd drivers that 7 installed.

Ati Drivers Conflict

I upgraded from xp x32 to windows 7 x64. I performed a clean install of xp and immediately installed win7. After the first reboot in the setup the image on my monitor became garbled just after windows loaded. First, i restarted into safe mode but got a message that the installation was not complete and could only be completed in normal mode. I found that after windows loaded i could type my user name and press enter repeatedly to complete the installation although i still couldn't see what was happening.

After the installation completed i went into safe mode which gave me a clear picture. If i disabled the display adapter in safe mode i could boot into normal mode with a clear picture, but windows 7 would then install drivers which caused the image to become corrupted upon reboot. During one boot into normal mode the device manager gave me a code 19 for my video card:"windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.

I've tried 2 clean installs, 3 driver versions, and a different monitor. The other monitor just gives a black screen where my main monitor gives a garbled image. I've used driver sweeper and the control panel to uninstall the video drivers, and i've installed new drivers from downloaded .exe's and by letting windows find them. This computer was working perfectly fine one day ago with windows 7 rc x64.

Keyboard Drivers Becoming Disabled

Keyboard *drivers* becoming 'disabled' (1st usb, then ps/2); show "!" In hw-lst, but win-diags find nothing wrong. This is a most peculiar problem. First my usb kbd driver went dead. At first i didn't notice it, as i was using the mouse, primarily, for input, but remember a hw-rejected sound from windows earlier upon logging in.

My keyboard wouldn't do anything. No led toggles - etc, but on another machine, fine, and on same machine 'fine' - until windows comes up, then kbd goes dead (once bios drivers are no longer driving kbd, likely).

Under keyboards, the hid keyboard driver showed a small yellow triangle with an ! In it.

After trying  reinstalling the driver (its the stock ms driver), upgrading it (no upgrades), repair ("nothing can be found wrong, maybe the driver is corrupt", but file kbd_hid.sys, checks out w/valid ms sig), i decide to hook up a ps/2 keyboard. It worked for all of maybe 20 seconds. Then a low hw reject message as win7 disconnected my ps/2 kbd! Unbelievable! Now both my hid kbd driver and the 'standard ps/2 keyboard driver show up with the yellow triangle with a "!" In it. But i can't figure out what's doing wrong with the.

I also tried system restore to day before any of this happened - no go. I figured going back further would be a waste, since the start of the problem was rather clearly defined.

I *thought* i had caused it when i tried to enter a sw policy restriction to forbid 'wisptis.exe' from executing - (the onscreen digital ink input dealy) - for two reasons - it kept getting in the way and i couldn't figure out how to get it to turn off (i wanted to use my tablet's native drivers, but wisptis was interfering and making the tablet good for nothing but digital ink (handwriting recognition as keyboard input)).

The final straw came when i was looking through my logs and found the security log (~20mb log) mostly full with security failures from wisptis.exe (i turned on monitoring of security failures, only, thinking that failures, should be rare in properly acting sw, and this software was clearly violating win7's own security policy!).

It was after i added the policy that the usb keyboard went dead.

But that policy went away from the first 'backstep' (system restore point) - but the keyboard didn't come back. After that it was downhill for the ps/2 driver. So, to be clear, the policy is not in the security panel - it was back to pre-init state (no sw policies in effect) after the 1st system restore. So that 'had' to be coincidence. But it felt oddly coincidental, that the only 'keyboad' type inputs left to use on the system were the on-screen keyboard and the digital-ink keyboard. (Mouse paths/drivers are unaffected).

Using Vista Drivers With Win 7

I installed windows 7 rc and the drivers that were on the machine worked fine. However, i am hosting a windows 7 launch party and received a signature copy of windows 7 ultimate. When i tried to install the promo os i had to do a clean install which wiped out the drivers. I contacted the manufacturer (hp) who are apparently not going to provide updated drivers for my machine (which is only 2 years old) for windows 7. When i contacted their support people i was told to use the drivers for vista, but when i try to install the drivers i am told that my os is not vista and the install terminates. So, is there any way for me to fool the software into thinking i am actually running vista?

Win 7 Sata Drivers

During the os install it ask for sata drivers. I insert the mobo cd and locate the drivers are for 32 bit os per instructions but when i try to install them nothing happens. I click on show compatible drivers and nothing is listed in the drop down list. I also tried putting the drivers on a flash drive and the same thing happens. Nothing. Also for some reason win 7 doesn't like sata cd/dvd . Have to take disc in and out 4-5 times for it to even read it and then it keeps hanging. What's up

Can you please give me the correct win 7 sata drivers. I'm getting frustrated.

Canon Hg20 Drivers

I recently purchased a canon hg20 hi-def camcorder. It uses a hard drive to store video - as well as a flash memory card. I have 2 computers, both almost identical in hardware and both running windows 7 home premium 64-bit. When i plug the camcorder via the usb connection to one computer it's found ok and drivers are loaded successfully. It's using "disk.sys", "partmgr.sys", and "sahdad64.sys".

However, when i plug it in to my other computer it searches and searches and searches and searches and finally comes back and says it couldn't find drivers and that it failed. When i look at it in device manager the driver is "usbstor.sys". I've tried removing the driver and reinstalling but it keeps picking the same one. I've tried updating the driver and the system tells me it's already the most current and refuses to replace it.

The computer that installed correctly works fine with the camera - i can access the videos on the camcorder hard drive and copy them to my computer. The other computer, however, refuses to install the camcorder correctly and i therefore can't access the camcorder from that computer.

Any ideas on how i can get my other computer to install this camcorder drivers correctly? I thought windows 7 was supposed to handle drivers better than other versions. I'm really surprised i'm getting different results on different computers that are almost identical.
