Win 7 Install Mouse Driver Instead Of Touchpad Driver


I did a clean 32 bit upgrade on my sony notebook vaio vgn-nr160e. I need an alps pointing device driver. I did download the original vista alps pointing device (touchpad) driver from the sony web site; however, windows 7 flashed a driver problem message when i tried to installed this original vista driver. Where does a windows 7 touchpad driver exist for my notebook?

Synaptics Touchpad Conflict With Microsoft Mouse

I am having a problem with win 7 and an apparent conflict with the synaptics touchpad. I have a microsoft mouse working so i can use the laptop, but the touchpad won't work. I have tried just about everything from uninstalling both the touchpad and the mouse to a clean install of windows. I have narrowed it down (after several clean installs) to what seems to be a conflict with outlook connector. After the clean install the touchpad has resumed working and then i had to reload all of my programming which is a real pain.

The touch pad seemed to stop working after i downloaded and installed the outlook connector to allow mapi connection to my msn.com emails. I can not keep up the clean install process (done at least 3 times). I have downloaded the synaptics driver direct from the company without a fix. Gateway says keep doing a clean install which is ludicrous. The touchpad driver says it is working properly with no conflicts even though it does not work. I believe that this is a windows 7 problem. Any further ideas would be appreciated. By the way once the synaptics touchpad stops working nothing short of a clean install will fix the problem, so i have a choice no outlook or no touchpad.

How To Disable Mouse Touchpad On Dell Laptop ?

I have a dell vostro 1500 laptop. When i opted for the yahoo task bar, i was pushed into yahoo 8. I wasn't happy, so i switched back to yahoo 7. Since then both my mouse pad and the hand mouse have been on simultaneously. When i go to the control panel and click on 'mouse", i receive the message that it can't open the synaptic pointer device. What is that? How do i get to it? I just want to turn off the mouse pad and stop my cursor from jumping around the screen. Does anybody know about this and can help?

How To Remove Microsoft Mouse & Keyboard Detection Driver ?

Ok i have a common problem with booting my pc under windows 7 64bit. It was all fine booting rapidly for the last month or so that i've had it installed. Then it started to freeze for several minutes (anything between 5 mins and about 10 mins) during boot time at the loading windows screen.

I have since then tried the various things to get it to boot normally again, including tings which should theoretically not affect it as they've all been there before this problem started and booting fine, this includes:

Looking at recent hardware changes such as hd's i've added. Changing the sata drives about (i've got 3) getting boot under msconfig to use the max cores (it's a quad core) & memory (4gb). Looking at the bootlog files (nothing leaps out other than i'm apparently trying to load a couple of the drivers twice - i've listed this mornings bootlog at the bottom of this message for reference). Recovering to a point about a month ago before the problems started in the hope that this will uninstall newer drivers that might be the problem, and this is where i noticed what i think might be the cause as this seems like the point it went wrong.

I had added a microsoft mouse and keyboard and the wu offered an optional update of:

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

After installing this i'm pretty certain that the boot slowed right down, so i've tried to uninstall it. Only i can't find a way of doing so. As when i do a system restore to a point prior to the driver installing and the problem occurring, it does not ditch the driver, just seems to keep it. I then uninstalled intellipoint for mouse and keyboard and re-installed standard ps2 mouse. At the same time i removed my microsoft wireless usb keyboard & mouse, all with no effect. I restored my system back to current again and i'm coming back to what i think the problem is which is the.

Microsoft - other hardware - microsoft mouse & keyboard detection driver (usb)

But with no obvious way or removing it, i can't confirm that. Other notable points: during the boot the hd access is constant so it's working like crazy. The keyboard will be unresponsive to things like capslock or numlock though for the first half of the wait the numlock light is on and for the second half of the wait the numlock light is off. I think my default setting is for numlock off.

Gateway Laptop Nv Series Mouse Driver Problem

I recently purchased a new gateway laptop (nv series) and am encountering problems with my mouse. I'm not sure if this is a gateway issue or a windows 7 issue, so please accept any mistakes on my part. So, i realized when i press a key and try to move the mouse it does not move (excluding the alt and ctr keys). For example, if i click and hold the up key and try to move the mouse, it will not move. I need this to work to play my games properly.

I searched the internet for hours, and finally came to the solution that i need to uninstall the mouse driver found in device manager, so i did so. After rebooting the computer it worked as it should. Though, the next time i turned my computer on it happened again. It's very annoying having to uninstall the driver and reboot everytime i want to play a game. I'm wondering whether or not there is a way to fix this permanently, and if so whether or not i'm not uninstalling the driver correctly. Here's how i'm doing it:

~ Open device manager > uninstall the mouse driver > it asks to reboot to make the changes (i do) > log back on, it works. ~

Also, it asks me when i log back on after uninstalling the driver that i'll need to reboot my computer. After doing that, the same problem existed, so that did not work.

Cant Install New Graphics Driver

I recently upgraded an older computer [dell dimension 4550] to windows 7 and found i needed a graphics card that supports directx 10. After i installed it & turned the computer on, a standard vga graphics adapter was automatically added with no option to cancel. The instructions for new driver requires the removal of old driver before proceeding.

I went to device manager and uninstalled the standard vga driver but of course, to complete the uninstall, i must reboot my computer. This automatically reinstalls the standard vga again . Please help me out of this endless loop. There must be some simple way to stop this madness!

Install Older Device Driver

The driver that windows 7 installs for my audio device (idt high definition audio codec) doesn't work on my dell latitude e6410. I have the latest driver from dell, but it won't install unless i run the setup. I don't want to run setup, because a) i don't think device drivers should have to be installed this way, and b) i want to integrate the drivers into my mdt/sccm installation for windows 7. (I think) the root of the problem is that the dell-provided driver has a new driver version, but the date indicates that this driver is older than what is included with windows 7.

When i attempt to upgrade my driver and browse to my 'new' driver, windows 7 tells me that the device is already using the latest driver. I changed the date within the inf, and even went so far as to change the files dates to be one day newer that the microsoft-provided driver, but i still can't update the driver. Ny ideas?

Install Real Microsoft Bluetooth Driver

How to install the "real" microsoft bluetooth driver for windows 7? I am a developer. My system uses bluetooth and is designed to used socket connections. It works fine with the "real" microsoft driver. I distribute a usb radio that works with the real microsoft drivers (works and tested on windows 7 with microsoft drivers installed) i keep running into computers with oem (non microsoft drivers) that take control of all bluetooth devices.

In xp and vista i could generally update the driver and pick the correct one. In windows 7 i am finding computers on which the microsoft drivers appear to be missing and therefore i cannot pick them. It may also be that windows 7 is not allowing me to pick them (says best driver already installed. ) Is there somewhere to download and a way to install the native microsoft windows 7 bluetooth drivers on an oem modified system that does not include these drivers?

Cannot Install Canon Ip6700d Printer Driver

I have windows 7 64 bit set up with a canon ip6700d printer. I set up the printer to be shared on the network with another pc running windows xp 32 bit. When setting up the sharing options>additional drivers, i point to the x86 file: ip6700d. Inf located on the printer install disc. When i attempt to install the driver i get the message: "the specified location does not contain the driver canon inkjet ip6700d for the requested architecture" i have verified that it is the correct inf file by opening it. The following is the header info:

; Ip6700d. Inf (for windows x86 monolithic driver)
;
; List of supported printers, manufacturers
;
[Version]
Signature="$windows nt$"
Provider=%canon%
Classguid={4d36e979-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}
Class=printer
Catalogfile=ip6700d. Cat

Attempting to install the driver on the xp machine fails as well with the same file, when i try to add it as a network printer. Is there something i am missing?

Hp Photosmart C6380 Driver Won't Install

I am trying to connect an hp photosmart printer c6380 all in one to my windows 7os netbook. My netbook is an asus eeepc 100he if that pertains. I am connecting it with a usb cord. I downloaded the software/driver package from the website since this printer is second hand. After most of the install is done it makes me connect the printer so it can install the drivers. It mostly installs the drivers through windows update but it can't find or install the hp photosmart c6300 driver. All the other ones install but not this one. I have completely uninstalled the program and reinstalled it and also just uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled them. No matter what i try it doesn't work. The only drivers offered on the hp site come with the full software/driver install package. I am just lost and thinking of giving up. I want an all in one printer but not if it takes another whole night of trying to figure it out if anyone knows a solution it would be much appreciated. Also i only have the printer for a short time before i have to make a decision whether to actually buy it so prompt answers would really help.

Samsung Ml-1430 Printer Driver Software Wont Install

Samsung ml-1430 printer driver win7x64 software won't install; can't find working driver-same with samsung dvd r/w. I quite vista (32 bit) when i had an infinity of problems getting hardware and software to work (goodbye to all that $$$), now i've tried win7x64 bit and i have worse problems!  I'm getting tired of this. I may junk it all and just install xp (again) after another ms or samsung failure to make sure hardware and sw works.

I can't figure out how to make the compatibility mode work and so much more won't work. I have a 3 ghz core 2 duo e8500, 4 gigs of memory, sata ii 500 gb hard drives, decent 8800 gt's video, so it's not a slow system. I just don't get it. If i could run rfactor on a mac i would get one just to avoid the last 3 years of headaches.

Cd/dvd Driver Issues - Win7 64-bit Pro Install

Cd/dvd driver issues in the beginning of windows 7 64-bit pro install. Installer will not let me move on until i find a driver for my dvd drive. The only drivers i can get to show up on the list are 64-bit drivers.

I'm upgrading from 32-bit so it won't let me use my vista cdrom drivers.
I have a sony optiarc rw ad-7170s firmware 1. 03 dvd drive
I created the bootable iso myself because of the issue with the digitalriver install
I burned the iso on 2 discs at 2 differnt speeds, didn't fix it.
Dvd is plugged into a sataraid pci card.

I'm almost sure it'll let me through if i can get my hands on the basic 64-bit cdrom drivers. I can't even find them online though.

Usb Flash Drive Driver Install Failed / Not Recognized

I plugged in a flash drive to my laptop the other day and i got the plug and play message, it downloaded the driver but the installation failed. Now windows 7 will not even recognize that the flash drive is plugged in or try to install the driver again. The flash drive still works on my main computer just fine and other usb devices including other flash drivers work just fine on this laptop. Device manager and computer management under administrative tools do not register it as being plugged in either.

I could not find a way to check if maybe the driver did install and was corrupted. Is there anything i can do?

Well, i have no idea which one or how to do it. If this is possible and someone knows this information, l please share.

Error - Display Driver Amd Driver Has Stopped Responding

"display driver amd driver has stopped responding and has successfully recovered"that is the error i get when playing games for more than 2 seconds. I have all the latest drivers. I have gone through 3 different video cards 2 xfx 5770s and a pny 9800gtx+. They both had the problem. The problem goes away if i remove one stick of ram. Both sticks of ram work wonderfully, it is not the ram.

My temperatures on all my hardware is within a reasonable range, nothing is overheating i made this post to see, to hope. That someone may have an answer for me, but also to help notify microsoft that there is a problem.

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

Win 7 Install Requires Driver Download For Hdd To Load Windows

I'm installing windows 7 (32 bit) onto a freshly formatted hdd. Installation goes all the way to highlighting the partitioned disk but refuses to load stating it needs a driver download. I can't find any drivers on line for my wd hdd and have never needed them before. Someone suggested upgrading the bios but with no operating system on the computer i'm not sure how to achieve this. Any suggestions?

Code 52 Driver Error - Lg Cd/dvd Drive Won't Install

I recently got a new computer. I am using windows 7. When i got it a couple of weeks ago the cd dvd drive worked fine. I have and lg super multi dvd rewriter 22x model gh22ns40. When installing a western digital external hd, i contacted wd customer service and the technician had me change some things and since then my cd dvd drive will not work. When i go to computer, the cd dvd drive is not listed. When i go to devices and printers and click on the pc icon the hard ware list shows the cd dvd drive with a yellow exclamation mark. When i pull it up the message reads, "windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drive with no success. I down loaded the current driver from wd with no success. I tried a system reset for a date when the drive was working, and that didn't work. I can't use the instillation software that came with the drive because the cd dvd drive doesn't work. I am sure that there is a switch or button some place that needs to be changed to for this function properly, but i can't find where it is.

Cannot Install Printer Driver - "access Is Denied"

I'm trying to install the driver for an hp laserjet 5l on a new windows 7 system. This is a completely new system, delivered four days ago. First step was to plug in a usb to parallel port converter. The device is recognized and shows up in device manager as "usb printing support". So that part works. Then i try "add printer".

I select "use an existing port" and "usb001 (virtual printer port for usb)" device as the port. And look for a hp laserjet 5l driver. There 's no matching driver in the standard list, so i click on "windows update". After a few minutes, a longer list appears, with a "hp laserjet 5l" option. I select that, the message "this driver is digitally signed" appears, and i click "next". I leave "printer name" as the default "hp laserjet 5l", and click "next". Uac then prompts me for the administrator password, which i give.

A progress bar moves for a few seconds, and then i get an alert: "printer driver was not installed. Access is denied". So that's a failed driver install on a signed driver obtained directly from windows update. This is repeatable. It occurs when run from a nonprivileged user account. It occurs when running with the default "user" administrator account. It occurs even when i temporarily enable the hidden "administrator" account and run as that.

Looking at various knowledge base and support articles, there are various suggestions. Similar problems have been reported as far back as 2003. A similar problem was reported with the windows 7 release candidate, and the user was advised to wait for the released commercial version.

There are various suggestions involving adjusting uac permissions, most of which require a tool that doesn't ship with windows 7 home premium. One posting remarked that this failure will occur if the driver file is marked as read only, but presumably windows update wouldn't do that. Everything else on the system is working fine. No crashes. Please advise. Os: windows 7 home premium, 64-bit.

Activated: yes.
Windows update: enabled, and current.
Cpu: amd athlon ii x2
Motherboard: asus m4a785t-m
