Startech Usb To Vga Adaptor


I have a usb2vgae from startech which worked great to extend my display to an additional monitor.
When i upgraded to windows 7 it stopped working and startech says that usb2vgae does not support windows 7. They have a new product called usb2vga2 but tech information on the web seems to give conflicting info about that products support for windows 7. Can anyone confirm if either:-

- The startech usb2vga2 does in fact work with windows 7
Or
- There is another adaptor which has been tested with windows 7 for usb to vga?

Setup Display Adaptor With Standard Vga Driver Before Running Setup

Ok, so while using windows vista it randomly decided to "delete" my drivers for my ati graphics card. I then upgraded to windows 7 but when i try to re install the drivers now with the cd it keeps telling me "setup your display adaptor with a standard vga driver before running setup" where do i find this adaptor and why hasn't microsoft realized that universal compatability is the way to go?Setup your display adaptor with a standard vga driver before running setup.

Sata Hard Drive To Usb Adaptor Cannot Access

I cannot get my windows 7 x64 laptop to access my sata hard drive connected via a usb adaptor. Upon connecting for the first time or after you have uninstalled the usb mass storage device, it successfully installs the drivers. But you cannot see the drive listed in "my computer" nor access it. If you go to disk management the drive is acknowledged but offline. I had no problem accessing an ide drive connected via a usb adapter that was made by the same manufacturer that makes the sata to usb i am using. I have read/wrote to this sata drive and usb adaptor plugged in several other machines using vista and xp. My sata to usb adaptor:

Starview Dvi / Vga Usb Kvm Switch Problem

The subject kvm switch when connected to a dvi monitor (hp 2709m) with dvi cables to the windows 7 machine will work as intended. However, when a second computer is attached using vga cables, the machines are never recognized.

I bought this device to allow for my win7 machine and winxp machines to remain connected and then when other computers which come in to be worked on, win vista or win xp, i can easily connect the third and or fourth computers. Each could be running virus scans, disk defragmenter, etc. , While other work could be accomplished.

Dlp Vga Display Problem

I have a new computer running windows 7 and for my monitor, i use my "60 widescreen dlp television and it has a vga port in back, so it is definitely designed for use with a computer. When i run windows at my desired resolution of 1920x1200, the monitor cuts off the right side of the screen a little. Its not a huge problem as it is just cutting off a small portion of the screen on the right side, probably less than 50 pixels at that resolution, but its somewhat annoying.

If i use the ati control panel to manually adjust the picture position, if i move it one notch to the left to make the whole image show up, the picture gets really dark and then if i watch videos or something with fast movement, all the black levels get messed up and the screen has a bunch of strange horizontal tearing or ghosting. I don't know if there's any programs to fix this or if its just a video card/monitor issue. Any suggestions are welcome.

Standard Vga Graphics Adapter Issue

Installed windows 7 on my sony vaio pcv -rx752, tried to playback video on wmp and it keeps crashing. Checked the device manager and see an issue with my standard vga graphics adapter. Windows update keeps downloading its own driver and installing and it does not fix the error.

One of the errors i got on the update advisor report is about the sis 650-740 driver. I think that the driver for the vga graphics on the motherboard needs the sis 650_740 but i cannot find one for windows 7. When i try to download the on from sony vaio they only have one for xp and windows 7 wont let me install it. Any suggestions?

Fn Keys On Win 7 And Vga With Dual Monitor

Okay so i just installed windows 7 last night and was looking forward to plugging in my laptop (hp latitude d600) into my 32" lcd in my room via a vga cable. Which worked on my previous os of windows xp. However it is now not working when i plug the cables in and i can't find where to tell the computer to use the vga link. On top of all that i tried using fn f8 to solve that problem to make it go crt/lcd but my fn keys are now not functioning. I googled it and used the hotfix they provided but that also did not work. Ideas?

Laptop Wireless Adaptor Problem

I have one desktop computer, a windows vista laptop, and an hp mini windows 7. We have a wireless router and the desktop and vista laptop work on our network. However, the hp mini does not. It just stopped working about one week ago. I can connect to outside networks, like motorola, but i cannot connect to our private network. When i try to, the hp mini ends up saying that there is something wrong with the wireless adaptor or access point. I tried doing system recovery, ipconfig/dnsflush, i tried rebooting both the modem and router but our network still does not work on the hp laptop only, it is shown as being available but it will not connect. What's the problem?

Netgear Wpn311 Wireless Adaptor Problem

New windows 7 user. My netgear wpn311 wireless pc adaptor doesn't operate as it used too on vista. Prior comments indicate that this is a problem. How do i get around this problem without having to buy a new adaptor?  When is microsoft going to 'fix' this problem? What wireless adapters 'do' work appropriately on windows 7? (Is there a list? Recommendations? Tired of pouring money into this. )

Bought a completely new system, only to have it perform less than satisfactorily since i have added the windows 7 product to my system. My kids computer is 5x faster than mine (which was my old computer. ).

D-link Wua-1340 Network Adaptor Compatibility

Is d-link's wua-1340 network adaptor truly compatible with windows 7 even though d-link does not provide a windows 7 specific driver for this model? i.e. , Is there a driver embedded in windows 7 for this adaptor? I have purchased a 32 bit version of windows 7 professional. I am currently running xp pro and using a d-link wireless usb network adaptor (model no. Wua-1340).

There is no d-link windows 7 driver for this adaptor. However, according to microsoft's compatibility site, the product is "compatible" with "no action required". I simply want to know whetger or not the adaptor will function properly under windows 7 and whether or not i can use the xp driver for it, the vista driver for it, or alternatively, if there is a driver for the product embedded in the windows 7 product.

Virtual Wifi Miniport Adaptor Driver Problem

I have a new packard bell easynote tj61 with in-built webcam, which worked for a while, and then came this error. When i turn on the laptop and it boots up with windows7, i get an error window stating "please turn on the camera". When i close this window and try to turn on the webcam, the error message just re-appears. I have taken a look at my device manager and found the little yellow triangle with explanation mark next to one of the network adaptors, specifically, the 'microsoft virtual wifi miniport adaptor'. I have clicked on this tried to install the driver but it reckons i have the correct driver installed. However it also tells me the "device is not working properly because windows cannot load the drivers required for this device (code31)"

The driver file details are c:windowssystem32driversvwifimp.sys
And driver version is 6. 1. 7600. 16385.

Hope this is enough info for anyone to be able to help. I am assuming the webcam and driver issue are co-related.

Can't Share Internet To Lan From Huawei 3g Internet Adaptor

I am in severe need of some help because i am about to go crazy trying to figure this out. I recently upgraded my mom's pc to windows 7 and i'm having trouble getting her network back in order. She has a huawei mobile broadband adaptor (3g), model ec168, that i'm trying to use to supply internet to her laptop and xbox360 via her router. I had it working for the last year when windows xp was still on her pc, but since installing windows 7, i can't get it to work. I'm using the same settings as i was before but i get nothing.
Here are the settings that used to work:

1. I enabled internet connection sharing on her 3g adaptor and shared it to the lan adaptor.

2. I set the lan's ip address to "192. 168. 0. 1"/subnet mask was the usual "255. 255. 255. 0" and the default gateway/dns server fields were left blank (since the pc was serving as the gateway and the dns sever).

3. I turned off dhcp on the router and set the router's ip to "192. 168. 0. 10"

4. I left the xbox360 and laptop set to "automatic"

With these settings it worked like a champ on xp, but i get nothing on windows 7. Also, everytime i turn ics "on" through the 3g adaptor, it says that it has assigned the ip address of "192. 168. 137. 1" to the lan. Not sure why but it does.

Problem: Delay On Boot Due To Drivers Files: Ndproxy.sys, Srv.sys, And Vga.sys

Recently installed a fresh copy of windows 7 x86 and x64 in separate instances to see if the problem of a two minute period between the "windows is starting" screen and the desktop. Neither had a visible impact. I looked around online and found how to create a boot log. The following are the drivers/services that could not be installed during my startup:

4 instances of ndproxy. Svs
1 instance of vga.sys (hadn't installed video card driver yet)
1 instance of srv.sys

After installing the necessary drivers and with no alert from the device manager, the boot time is still roughly 2 minutes. Right now i am at a loss on what to do. For reference my avg startup time in xp was around 10 seconds from the windows logo. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Failed Ir Usb Cir Install Usb Card Reader Problem

I have a reasonably clean and fresh w7 pro 32 install on a fujitsu lifebook t series tablet. I recently bought an epraizer card reader to enable me to import photos from a cf.

On installing it for the first time, the driver installs failed. The driver it failed on was the ehome infrared receiver (usbcir). To the best of my knowledge, the device does not contain an ir device of any sort.

I inserted the same device in an xp machine and it worked fine. Have i:

(A) wasted my money, (b) encountered a known problem with a simple fix (do tell), or
(C) tripped over something nasty i don't want to know about (see a)?

Identify Usb 2.0 Cables / Test Usb Cable Speed

Is there a way to tell if a cable is usb 2. 0? Or better yet, is there a was to test usb tables to find their transfer rate?I have a huge supply of usb cables to go through. Some are clearly marked usb on the connector or on the wire itself. But most cables have no markings to indicate their spec. I've searched a lot and found no good and reliable way to test them. I've seen recommendations to try to use the cables to transfer large files and watch the speed. But that does not seem reliable and won't work since i have all sorts of different end connectors to test.

And i've seen some spec information such as there will not be a ferrite connector on 2. 0 cables. And 2. 0 cables won't be longer than 3m. But i am looking for something that will tell me definitively if the cables are 2. 0 spec. And better yet, what is the actual transfer speed since some cables are better than others. I would prefer some marking or physical characteristics on the cable that would tell the version. But i am open to (hopefully inexpensive) test equipment too. Some sort of terminator-like tester would be ideal.

Usb Flash Drive - Usb Device Is Not Recognized

I have tried 4 different usb flash drives from different manufacturers and my usb hard drive from western digital. Windows 7 recognizes it until i start transferring files. Then it can't find the drive. When i unplug it and plug it back in, i get a notification that the usb device is not recognized. After i restart the computer, it does the same thing all over again. I ran vista before windows 7 and never had this problem. I am very frustrated. I must have access to my flash & external drives or windows 7 is useless to me.

Plugging Usb Keyboard & Mouse Into Different Usb Ports

I have a usb keyboard and mouse. Recently, i had to relocate my computer, so the keyboard and mouse were unplugged. My question is: if i plug the keyboard and mouse back, but not into the original usb ports, will this cause windows 7 to create a new hardware profile, or any other registry changes as a result?

Usb Suspend:usb Device Not Entering Suspend

I purchased windows 7 as soon as it was available in stores. I installed it and after using it for a few days, i noticed that my usb devices weren't selectively suspending to save power like they were in the release candidate of windows 7. I left it alone 'till now. I just reinstalled windows 7, thinking it maybe some software or driver that i had installed that was causing this problem. So i didn't install any drivers or software and ran the power efficiency diagnostics report, and all of my usb devices have the error: usb suspend:usb device not entering suspend.

Can you please help me with this? If you need to know, i am using an asus m4a79 deluxe mobo.

Usb Connection

I am having trouble with a usb connection. This is what it says. One of the usb devices attache to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognize it this happens whenever i put in a flash-drive. Or even when i try to download pictures from my camera. I have 2 label printers and 2 printers connected to my computer. This didn't start happening until i got 1 of the  new printers. I have tried putting the flash drives on a different computer and it works just fine.

I have replaced all the cables with 2. 0. I took the computer to staples to ask them and when they connected it it was fine. So i don't know what else i can do. Only one of my label printers is a serial port, all others are usb. This is a desktop. I have tried even putting the flash-drive in the back of the computer in one of the empty ports but i get the same error. I hope i don't sound too stupid. It is driving me crazy. Can you help me?

Bsod - Usb Vulnerability

This happened to me 1 week ago. The night before my computer was working fine. Turns it on the next morning and my usb mouse and usb wireless adapter were not working. I unplugged the mouse and plugged it back in and it worked. Then did the same to my wireless adapter. As soon as i plugged it in, i had a bsod and the computer restarted in less than 1 second.

The problems arrived when i checked my hotmail and found loads of spam being sent out from it and found that it was china sending these e-mails out to random people. Few days later i looked on my computer and noticed that applications had been replaced with chinese characters and that china had gone into my computer (i looked for this in the mcaffee logs on my computer).

My computer is fully up to date with updates from microsoft and there are no registry flaws at all. Any help here with this matter? As far as i am aware there was a vulnerability for this that had supposed to have been patched up.
