Problem With Virtual Wifi Miniport Adapter Driver

Microsoft virtual wifi miniport adapter has a problem with driver. Reinstall driver, not fixed. Windows 7 home premium 64. New acer 5532 trying to connect to a wireless hp 1022nw. Wireless internet was set up without a hitch. Other computers connect are xp and no problem exists. Wondering if this is really a driver issue or compatibility / hardware issue. One of the automatic responses also stated the driver was reinstalled and did not fix the issue. Windows update stated to never install drivers (?) And issue was not present. A secondary and possible related problem stated in trouble shoot was "problem with pnp devices, detected.

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.

Microsoft Virtual Wireless Adapter

I have a dell vostro 1400 notebook with a broadcom wlan 1390 installed. Recently, i have upgraded the wlan driver to version 5. 60. 18 using the upgrade provided by dell bearing id no r242438. After the upgrade, i have confronted the following problem. The name of the adapter has changed in programs like stopcut and netcut. In other words, when i try to access the drop list to choose the name of my network adapter, i find the name of my ethernet adapter mentioned correctly, microsoft virtual adapter mentioned correctly, while my wireless adapter is labeled as microsoft instead of dwlan 1390 as it used to display before.

The adapter is displayed with its right label (dwlan 1390) in the device manager and in the adapters list in the network connections window. However, whenever i use a third party application to access my adapters list, the label i got for my wireless adapter is microsoft and not dwlan 1390. I rolled back to my old driver and i get the same result.

Atheros 5007 Wifi Driver

I need a driver that will work on windows 7 x64. I tried all the ones on google. Even tried the toshiba driver for 2010. The xp driver nor the toshiba win 7 driver do not install, no matter what. I have the vista . Inf but it's not an exe. If someone knows where to put the inf files i can do it. This thing has been a pain in the butt since i bought it. I used it on vista, with a major headache to get it working. Why is atheros so difficult? Forcing us to use european drivers.

I had a broadcom wifi pci card & that installed no problem. I needed to take it out for my mom to use, but that left me with no wireless option now. I mean i can just boot to my xp drive but then you don't have the direct x 11 & the video card isn't as awesome because it wasn't made for xp. I may be wrong on the "ag", the print wore off & i think that's what it was.

Virtual Pc Driver Issues

I have installed microsoft virtual pc on my win7 machine with the hope of playing project igi. However, when i launch igi within the virtual xp machine, it gives me a d3d error message and the game will not launch.

I get the following error "the nvidia driver setup could not locate any drivers that are compatible with your current hardware" is this a driver problem or something else? Can anybody help me? I'm dying to play my old time favorite igi

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?

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.

Microsoft Teredo Tunneling Adapter Has A Driver Problem

Message 1. "Device driver software was not successfully installed" - x failed message 2. "Troubleshooting has completed" - "microsoft teredo tunneling adapter has a driver problem". My first time here. Perhaps i can learn something. Well, message 1. -  I got when i attempted to update the driver for the same adapter. I then got message 2 after attempting to troubleshoot the problem. I initially had issues with the netgear infamous adapter wg111v2, which i couldn't get to work, uninstall or work or install.

Crazy. Well i reinstalled win7, plugged it in, and the software downloaded immediately and the adapter seemed to be working fine (for the first time since win7 installation), based on the bottom right hand icon's confirmation. Until i removed the network cable. Now it doesn't work despite apparent software confirmation.

No browser loads, only with a cable. My search online seems to suggest that it is down to this tunneling adapter. It seems to be at fault. I know for sure that it's not the router as i have wifi on my hd2 from it, and win7 tells me that the adapter is working. So my question is does win7 just not accept netgear's adapter or is it the teredo tunneling adapter's fault. Oh my router is dg834gv3.

Microsoft Win 7 High Definition Audio Device Driver

Microsoft windows 7 high definition audio device driver wrongly swaps c sub and rl rr audio jacks. This is a really bizarre thing that is driving me up a wall. I ran windows xp media center edition 2005 on my hp m1050y and the device ran as expected for years.

Then, i upgraded to windows 7 and my rr speaker emits sounds that are supposed to come from the subwoofer.conversely, the subwoofer emits sounds that are supposed to come from the rr speaker.

I also noticed that the speakers properties dialog displays the wrong colored jacks in the jack information section. C sub should be orange and rl rr should be black. However, on this dialog the c sub is black and the rl rr jack is orange.

Rolling back to windows xp fixes the problem. Installing newer realtek drivers for windows 7 fixes that problem but makes it so that i cannot control the headphones and rear l r speaker jacks independently, and cannot hear the headphones without turning up the speakers' volume.

Hp does not offer an updated driver for this device for windows 7. I have also done a strange thing and installed and run mac os x on this machine just to test the audio and even in that os the speaker jacks work correctly, just as they did in windows xp media center edition 2005. The problem definitely is in the windows 7 version of the driver for this device. From what i have read it appears to have also been in the vista version of the driver.

Does microsoft have a hotfix available that addresses this problem? Or, is there a way to swap the jacks in the driver? The chipset is the alc880.

I do not want to manually swap the plugs and jacks as this will not work for any other os i might also boot on this machine. Installing the generic realtek driver also is not an option as i need to be able to have separate control over headphones and speaker volumes.

I need maximum interoperability between operating systems as well as independent control of front and back green audio jacks. No other operating system, including older windows operating systems, have these jacks wrong but vista and windows 7. Anyone know of a solution or of a registry tweak i can do which will swap the jacks in the driver itself?

Webcam And Wifi Not Working

I just bought my msi laptop about two months ago. I'm not techie and i'm not good in troubleshooting. My webcam was working fine not until it shows that the device cannot be found. I tried uninstalling/installing the drivers but it will not work. As i tried installing it, it will no longer show in the installed products/programs in the program and features.

My problem with my wifi started when i first started using a broadband stick. I tried searching for a connection but it will only show the broadband stick even if it was not inserted.

Bsod From Wakeup When Wifi Turned Off

I've been getting the bsod other people have, but mine has a definite cause. It will only happen on wake-up from sleep/hibernate (not sure about power-up) when the wifi is turned off. I have a laptop, so there's a little button you can slide left or right to turn the wifi on or off. If the wifi is turned off, but i manage to switch it on before the login screen comes up, i'm ok. But if i forget or i'm too late turning it on, the bsod appears.

I have an hp pavilion dv2610us with windows 7 pro x64. I ran the 64 bit version of the release candidate, which had the exact same problem. I thought it would get fixed with the final version, but i guess not. Is the fix for this a certain wifi driver? If so, anyone know which one?

Update Blocks Wifi Connection

So i bought a brand new computer with windows 7, bought a new wireless adapter (netgear wna1000) downloaded the newest available windows 7 compatible drives from a friends computer and hey i can connect. I turn my computer off after updating windows and now my wireless connection has "limited connectivity" which means that i can't use my network. The only answer i've found to this on my own and after countless hours on the phone with netgear and geek squad is to run a system restore back before the updates are installed and never turn off my computer. I know this isn't good for it. Does anyone have any solutions? Oh i'm running on a wep connection.
