No Device Drivers Found


I'm trying to install windows 7, and have wasted multiple discs in the process, trying different speeds, different softwares, even different types of discs. My problem is i'm getting stuck with the "no device drivers found. " I've seen a few threads but i cannot find an answer that will work.

The last thing i thought i would mention is that i'm currently on windows xp x32 and i'm wanting to go to windows 7 x64. Can this be done? Do i need to fully uninstall windows xp with the windows xp disc before even using the windows 7 disc?

No Device Drivers Found Issue

I downloaded the student edition of windows 7 home premium, i am currently running vista ultimate so cannot do an update and have to do a custom install. I downloaded it fine, ran it, it opens up fine with the blue windows 7 opening screen, i select install, then select custom install. In the next window i have an empty white box which i presume is supposed to list my hd's allowing me to select where i want to install windows 7. None of my hd's are showing up, i'm given the option to browse or scan, when i select this it gives me the message.

No device were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok. Any suggestions?

Bluetooth Peripheral Device - No Driver Found

I've bought an usb bluetooth yesterday. I plugged it in usb and windows installed all drivers just fine. However, it downloaded some driver from windows update. But my problem is, when i'm trying to add my mobile phone it tries to install many drivers. Windows is able to install all drivers except one. It says bluetooth peripheral device - no driver found. I went to shop and i changed the usb bluetooth and got another one. Same thing with new one. It doesn't find a driver. The bluetooth is useless now, i cannot do anything with it. Also i've tried the bluetooth in my other pc but exact same thing. Currently i'm on windows 7 ultimate 64-bit, but my other pc has windows 7 ultimate 32-bit.

I've tried windows update myself and there was a driver which is 15 kb, i've installed it but no chance. Same thing happening. Driver date is 2008, too old and not for windows 7 i bet. What i have to do now? Please do not say change the bluetooth, because i'm not able to find any other brands. Here is only two brands. And one more thing, i've spent much time yesterday searching my problem in microsoft answers and web and i've tried all ways i've seen, but none of them worked. M i not able to run this device as vista? Something like that? There should be a way please give me some solutions. I really need it.

Bluetooth Peripheral Device Driver Not Found

I upgraded from windows vista to windows 7 home premium. I was able to connect my blackberry storm just fine when i had vista. Now when i try to connect my phone via bluetooth i get a bluetooth peripheral device not found. I have tried everything. I have checked for updates on windows, bluetooth manufacture, and hp and i cannot find any update. I have went to the device manager and right clicked the peripheral driver and tried to update it over the internet and manually. I tried to troubleshoot and run it with a older version of windows, since it worked then, but when it asks me to select which program i would like to run on an older version of windows, i cannot find the drive. Does anyone have any ideas or a way to fix this?

System Backup Not Found When Using Express Card Usb 3.0 With Device

I upgraded from vista to windows 7 and made a system backup through the backup center. The backup center recognized my external drive (freecom), which is connected to an express card using usb 3. 0. However, when i wanted to see whether the image was on the drive through clicking the restore function (sorry don't know the exact names in english; a have a dutch windows 7 copy), the drive isn't recognized. It just doesn't seem to be there.

When i use the windows recovery disk, it isn't recognized either. But when i put the device straight in a usb 2. 0 input bus it is recognized. This is odd. Just wanted other users to know what to do when they use 3. 0 through an express card.

Installing Device Drivers

I am trying to install a controller using specific drivers which i have and every time i try to install them through the devices menu in control panel windows tells me that they are already up to date (even though the controller will not work). I've tried uninstalling the drivers which windows automatically installed and everytime i connect the controller windows installs the same drivers again without letting me cancel. Is there anyway to override this and install the drivers i want to install? I am running the windows 7 rc.

The Drivers For This Device Are Not Installed (code 28)

Am receiving the following error for two devices on my system, a usb 2. 0 hub and a bluetooth adapter. I ran the mister fixit applet which recognized the error, tries to install the drivers and comes back with an error. The devices themselves work fine because the system dual boots to xp and windows 7 and when i boot in xp it discovers the devices and installs the drivers without a problem.

I have tried uninstalling the devices and re-running "scan for hardware changes" several time to no avail. Have also run sfc and it reported no errors. I would welcome any ideas or suggestions to help resolve this.

Win 7 Cannot Load Device Drivers

I've been having a problem with windows 7 freezing, hanging and not starting up for the past several weeks now. For the first few weeks after i installed in, windows 7 worked fine, but all the sudden in began freezing and hanging.

I've eliminated the possibility of my hardware being bad or my drivers being wrong; i've run multiple diagnostics on my hard drive, ram and others (memtest86, spinright and checkdisk, all came back with good results) - i've also scanned for malware (found none) and tried system restores and even reinstalled the os twice. Each time the problems come back.

I enabled boot-logging and found that on most startups, windows fails to load many or some device drivers. How can i fix this? When the system starts up, it works alright, but usually hangs or freezes within an hour. Usually it freezes during the windows logo screen or the "welcome - please wait" boot screens.

I've also noticed that the machine is far more prone to hang and freeze when on high performance or when plugged into my ac adapter.

Cd/dvd-rom Drive Device Drivers

So i'm trying to reinstall windows 7 after a long and bloody struggle with my motherboard (long story short, went to the field, sata controller died, got new sata controller, found out i might have possibly wiped my primary hdd, no backup) and after the "setup is starting. " Screen, it asks me for cd/dvd-rom device drivers. Seeing as i'm using a win7 disc to boot from, and it clearly read it enough to get here, and i highly doubt they even make cd-rom drive drivers anymore, i'm at a loss.
And for the record, the drive is a liteon ihos204 bd-rom. No other cd/dvd/bd-rom drives, either.
Thoughts? Opinions?

Xp Mode - Legacy Device Drivers Usb

I understand xp mode, running on supported hardware, allows the xp "guest" to utilize usb devices on the win7 host. What i am hoping is that i can install a legacy (winxp) usb device driver in the guest vm and have the legacy device (phone) work in the vm, without having a driver in the host, win7 environment.

This would be great, but i can also see why the device would need to be recognized with a driver in the physical host before it could be virtualized in the guest os. I'll get around to testing it, but just thought i'd ask here first, will it work? No vista/win7 driver available.

Boot Problem - No Boot Device Found

Each time i start up the system the boot file cannot be found. I select the "repair start up" option and it completes it successfully with following detail: root cause found: the partition table does not have a valid system partition. Repair action: partition table repair.completion successfully. After this the system will start up. As mentioned, i have to do this at every start up, so i'm wondering why this partition table disappears when i shut down the desktop. I should mention that this problem started at the time i downloaded and installed the true image backup software.

The installation could not complete and one possible solution to the problem was to stop the antivirus program. At that moment i noticed that the avast antivirus was hanging and i was not able to kill the process. So i restarted the system, using f8 to get the safe start option so that i was able to uninstall the antivirus program. I then tried to install another antivirus application and when installation was almost finished got the message that it was unable to complete installation. I tried to install another backup solution (paragon), but also this one failed. On the other hand, i was able to install the firefox browser.

Error - Unknown Device - Usb Does Not Recognize Garmin Device

Just recently, windows 7 home premium addition has stopped detecting my garmin device. Other usb devices such as my ipod work fine. I was able to get it to detect the garmin only a few times, it would try to install the drivers but the drivers would fail to install. The garmin was working a few weeks ago. Below is a list of everything i have already tried:

Rebooting (after everything i try)
- Turning the computer off and leaving it unplugged overnight
- Completely uninstalling all drivers and software associated with the gamin.
- Manually installing drivers
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for new hardware
- Uninstalling the unknown device and doing a search for legacy hardware (this produces a device not functioning (code 10) error)
- Reverting back to a restore point before the last windows update

Please, any help would be very appreciated. I am decently computer savvy and have always been able to fix any problems that i have. This one has had me spinning my wheels for days.

Device Malfunctioned Error Code - 43 - Usb Device Not Recognized

I purchased a new computer with windows 7.initially my ipod worked fine with this computer. It still charges the ipod but nothing else. In addition it will not work on my old computer.

1. I have completely uninstalled and reinstalled itunes.

2. I reset the device losing all of my music.

3. I have gone to device manager and the ipod shows up as unkown device. I have stopped the device driver and rebooted.

4. I have tried to have attached to my old computer update and i receive the exact same error and usb not recognized message.

5. Other devices work fine on the usb hub, in addition i have tried the other usb hub.

All of the above measures have failed. This all started when i was having problems updating my music to the ipod, and i chose the restore function on the summary page of the itunes software, with the device attached, and recognized. Since then nothing? Initially when the device was attached after the restore option was chosen, i got need to attach to a 2. 0 usb  high speed hub, error message? It is a 2. 0 usb high speed device. I have reviewed other questions in this forum, on apples forums, all with the same results, nothing.

Dvd Device Driver Blocked - Unable To Use Device Code 48

I get a code 48 message. I have an intel d945psn board that has run w2000 on a eide hard drive. I upgraded to windows 7 with a new sata hard drive clean install, but transferred files with pc mover. Now my dvd burner(s) don't work citing the infamous code 48 and saying that the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with windows.

Aren't cd/dvd device drivers pretty standard, and included with the bios?  How do i deal with that problem. I have tried to update drivers through "driver access", but the problem persists. The device doesn't even show up in windows explorer or my computer, but can be seen in device manager and on the cmos menu. The same is true of my second, identical sata hard drive. It appears that some of my important system drivers have been blocked.

Usb Hub Displaying As Device In Device Manager

Pretty much all my device connected to my usb hub used to show in device manager as separate devices. However, they now only show under the name "kevin o'connor" (the name of my zune). Open the device's properties and going to the hardware tab will show all the device connected via the usb hub.

Therefore, all the devices do in fact work, it's just a little bothersome to me, and the fact that i can't safely remove anything from the hub without having to eject the entire hub. Here's a screen shot that shows what the hub shows as: http://i34. Tinypic.com/34fxmp4.png

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

No Tv Tuner Found

I have a new computer running windows 7. My video card is an ati radeon hd 5770 1024mb gddr5.
I neglected to order a tv tuner when i placed the order for the computer, consequently, i've purchased a tv tuner - ati tv wonder hd 650 pci digital & analog tv tuner. The bad news is the tv tuner is for windows vista.

I've downloaded from ati a driver but i am still unable to get the tv to work in my computer. The computer is unable to find the necessary tuner(s). Any suggestions ?

Thanks for the input. I've got the problem fixed. I gave up and removed the tuner card from the computer, re-plugged in everything to the computer and when i turned it on, it showed "tuner driver installed successfully". So, i put the tuner back in and everything is working fine now.
