I just installed the windows 7 ultimate 64 bit into my laptop yesterday. My laptop will not read the cd/dvd driver and when i tried to install the drivers on it.

It is getting me very frustrated and i would love to continue to work with windows 7 because i think other then that its great. I have a compaq pesario 7100.

Compaq Presario Cq42 Hangs

I bought a compaq presario cq-42 a week ago. It's running on windows 7 home premium 32bit 4gb ddr3 ram and ati hd5430 gddr3  with direct x11. Whenever i play a game for about 1 hour or sometimes lesser, my laptop will hang. My screen will turn black and the whole system is hanged. The only thing i can do is by conducting a force restart. The games i played are left 4 dead 2, modern warfare2, gta iv etc. I read from other forums that cleaning registry or reinstall the game would help. But what i ever i tried even change system boot services at msconfig and off debug at cmd, but none works. Can anyone help me? It's very annoying, i couldn't play any game.

Unlicensed Win 7 Being Installed On New Hp Compaq Presario 3

I just bought a new hp compaq prisario 3 weeks ago in the philippines at gigahertz co. At sm lipa batangas. Apparently hp is installing an unlicensed windows 7 in it. When i reported this to gigahertz co. And demanded a new authentic copy of windows 7 they said that they cannot do so because it was not included to the package deal so they just installed a copy of unlicensed windows 7. When i said that i am going to report them to hp they said to go ahead because hp knew about it. What should i do now. My computer is being corrupted and it is brand new.

Using Handycam With Compaq Presario Cq61-426eo

How do i get my handycam to work with my computer. Ive got a brand new compaq presario cq61-426eo and it just won't work with my handy-cam. And the reason is that my computer doesn't have an ilink/firewire connection. There is no place to insert a pc card, sony tells me that windows 7 doesn't support streaming usb, hp tells me that there is no way to put a firewire connection in my computer. I'm so disappointed, i actually bought a new computer just to get my old videos on dvd. I never expected this kind of problems can someone help me get the movies in to the computer.

Compaq Presario V2000 Audio Device Problem

I've scoured the threads on here and tried re-installing the realtek audio driver. I have a compaq presario v2000 laptop. Hp/compaq says that's the solution, but while it seems to install without error, it restarts and still finds no audio device to begin with.

I'm running win 7 64bit. I need to use this computer for audio production, actually, so i'm in a slightly bad situation and i am desperate for help. Remember, i already scoured the win7 audio threads on here and tried many of the suggestions, and each of them have failed. Miserably.

Compaq Presario Wireless Card Not Recognized After Windows Update

I have an compaq presario f730us. The situation is a little bit complicated, but i will try to explain it. I was running vista on the computer. One day i ran windows update, and the computer stopped recognizing the wireless card. I uninstalled the updates and disabled new updates, and it seemed to work again. I did not like this setup, since i didn't want to have to avoid getting windows updates, but i accepted the situation because i was about to update the computer to windows 7.

After i did a clean install of windows 7. The wireless card was working fine immediately after the install. The device manager recognized it (i checked because that was the problem i had been having with vista). I used the computer for about an hour. I hoped that the problem would not come back with windows 7, so i allowed it to run windows update. But immediately after i updated and restarted, the wireless card stopped working again. Once again it does not seem to be recognized by the computer.

This time, however, once i uninstalled the updates the problem remained. I have re-installed the wireless card drivers. I am out of ideas. I have been on the phone with microsoft support for several hours now, and they are shifting the blame to a faulty wireless card. But i know that the card worked perfectly up until the windows update ran. There's a very very low chance that my wireless card broke right as i installed the updates - especially since i had this problem with windows updates in vista. Does anyone here have any ideas?

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!

Missing Cd/dvd Device Driver

Win7 x64 boot disk results in "missing cd/dvd device driver ("a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing)". I'm doing a full install (custom) of windows 7 from a nec3520a cd/dvd and a dvd burned from the downloaded (twice) student file for windows 7 x64.

I am unable to get past the point of having "no apparent" driver for my dvd. As stated earlier, after i click "install" on initial screen (this is after the "loading files" screen which runs for a couple of minutes loading win7 files), i get an error screen saying "missing cd/dvd drive driver", then directions to install a disk/dvd/whatever with the driver.

If i just click next, it looks for a driver, doesn't find it, and then offers me a selection menu for different drivers( all of which are blank, there are no drivers listed). I then have an option to "rescan" for updated hardware, i suppose, or "browse" to go find the driver.

I have, and can't get any sort of driver for my nec3520, which i've been using for a couple of years now; it's supported directly by windows built-in drivers. Nec doesn't even provide a driver, for 32 or 64 or anything. I suppose this whole thing has to do with my "custom" install from a bootable dvd of the x64 version, but i can't find any way to get around it.

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

The driver is located in c:windowssystem32driverscdrom.sys1gb ati hd4890 graphics accelerator hd 3300 gpu - hybrid crossfire xpcie gigabit lan controller featuring ai net 2 - asus m4a78 proi will also try to call microsoft support on 0844 800 2400 using access code 1233 when prompted. However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Setup Hangs - Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7(ultimate) setup hangs: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. " First my hardware i'm trying to get installed:

Gigabyte ga-ma790fxt-ud5p
4 wd5000aaks sata 500gb drives configured as raid5 connected to the sb750

When i start the setup, everything is fine until i hit "install now". Afterwards i'm delighted with 5-10 min. Of "setup is starting", which is followed by "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. "

After that i provide the "ahcix64s.sys" which is the proper sb750 raid driver.

I tried the versions from: http://america. Giga-byte.com/filelist/driver/motherboard_driver_raid_amd_sb7xx_bootdisk_win7-64bit.exe

And the one from amd: https://a248. E. Akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2. Ati.com/drivers/whql_sb7xx_raid_vista_3. 1. 1540. 127.zip

Both with the same result: "no device could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media"

Just a side note: i'm installing from a usb flash drive, which has worked already, when i connect a single sata drive in ide mode to the gigabyte sata chip (jmb322); however this is not my desired config, i need to run the system from the raid.

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Cannot Access Cd/dvd Drive Missing

Hp dv6646us laptop upgraded to windows 7 - retail version 3 or 4 mos ago just noticed my cd/dvd drive is missing, it is not listed under the device driver i tried several online fixes to no avail. I plugged in my flash drive which is usually drive g and the drive g flash shows up and the cd/dvd drive e, also ! But the drive e (cd/dvd) shows the flash (again) as the subdirectory.

The usb flash drive works fine and is accessible but even though the drive e (cd/dvd) shows up in the device manager (when my flash is plugged in) i can not access the cd in the drive i am somewhat computer literate but afraid to mess with too much that i don't know anything about.

Cd-dvd Drive Missing Or Not Visible In Computer

Latest version of cdrom.sys driver is correctly installed and detected in "device manager". Reinstalling is not helping. High-low filters solution does not apply. Filter are not present. When opening the key with regedit. Window 7 automatic troubleshooter detect the problem with the statement "the drive is not assigned a drive letter" but cannot assign a new letter.

"Computer management" detects the cd drive but the drive letter is missing and the assignment a new one is not allowed: when trying to assign a new drive letter manually, the new letter assigned shows in the screen for about one second and immediately disappears again. Different drive letters have been tried in case standard "e" could be somehow locked by some other software or virtual disk.

Using "computer management" i can mount the cd drive it in a folder in other hard drive and explore/operate cd contents without problem. I am using this for the time being as a temporary solution for having access to information in my cds/dvds. This is happening in asus k52jr laptop with windows 7 home premium-64. Dvd-cd driver is a hitachi hl-dt. St dvdram gt30n.

.ashx Driver Missing

When viewing sites that require the . Ashx driver to view pdf-like documents, suddenly i'm getting dialogue boxes saying that ie8 doesn't recognise the file extension. I'm running xp home edition version 5. 1. 2600 sp3 build 2600 on an msi wind netbook and have ie8 version 8. 0. 6001. 1702

I've googled (sorry) the internet and searched the ms answer site (all too technical for me) but can't find anything to help (except pareto driver cure, which looks dodgy, keeps popping up. Think this is related)? How do i fix this problem?

Driver Is Missing Or Corrupt Error Code 39

I installed my external disk drive to my new mini hp laptop, i installed a number of programs. I later performed a system restore to factory settings due to multiple, alike programs that were not necessary. I then set up my computer for a second time. This time when i was installing my software for my printer, which worked previously and i performed printing tasks, something happened and i have have no idea what. My disk device will no longer work. It tries to install, but fails.

The usb mass storage device works, but not the usb 2. 0 dvd-rom. I even plugged it to my desktop to try it there, and it worked the first time, now when i try it nothing happens, the computer doesn't even recognize it. I keep getting prompted to buy driver cure and driver fixers but i don't want to pay 30 - 50 dollars when i already paid for the device.

Western Digital My Book Missing Driver

I have two wd mybook storage devices. Both worked on my previous pc running xp 32 bit. I have now rewed my pc running windows 7 64 bit. One device works the other doesn't and when i troubleshoot the one that doesn't the troubleshooter indicates a missing driver. Curiously the older of the two drives works ok.

I've been in contact with western digital who state they do not provide separate drivers as they utilise what microsoft provide, of course reading the answers blog microsoft state that its not their issue either, which leaves me, and apparently others, with unaccessible data & $100 out of pocket and no one is responsible. Can someone please advise where i can download the microsoft driver from that thewestern digital device relies on?
