Sata Storage Controller Driver Installation

I have a fresh install of win7 prof x64 on an 17/930 system. In trying to fix a problem with media center stuttering, i looked at my device drivers and noticed that the sata ahci controller driver that was installed by win 7 is a generic ahci driver circa 2006 (6. 1. 7600. 16385). My intel matrix storage manager has a much more recent driver available from asus for my p6x58d-e motherboard.
Question - can i install the new storage controller driver now that win 7 is already installed? If so, what is the correct process?

Cannot Locate Driver Files For Ide Controller During Upgrade Installation

I just bought the windows 7 home premium upgrade family pack which entitles me to upgrade all three of my computers, i was told. I have installed it successfully on my gateway desktop with vista home premium without a problem. I anticipate putting it into my l vista laptop.

I've tried to update another xp dell desktop, but keep running into a wall. The installation program asks me to choose a hard disk partition onto which i should install the update. One of the partitions is marked "reserved", so i choose the other. But i can go no further in the installation until i locate driver files for the ide controller.

I've tried finding such files on the windows xp disk, in cwindowssystem32drivers (since that is where device manager says they are) and on the windows 7 disk itself. So far, no matter what driver file location i have tried, i cannot get beyond that point in the installation. I realized that upgrading windows xp to windows 7 would mean losing my data and other installed programs and am willing to do so because i'd like all my computers on the same os and the use of 'homegroup'. Please advise on how to get beyond this point in the installation.

Upgrade From Vista Sata Driver Problem

Im trying upgrade from vista ultimate to windows 7 rc1, however during the compatibility check it fails, saying i need to upgrade a sata controller driver. So i do that, ie right click, select update driver, it says the latest driver is being used, but the problem remains, and i cant upgrade. Ive tried doing  a clean install booting from disk, and an upgrade, and all fails.

The error message is below, any ideas? The following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

* For these items, make the following changes: install updated drivers for the following devices. Open control panel and search for "update device drivers".

Storage controllers: uli sata/raid controller (m1573). The following issues are preventing windows from upgrading. Cancel the upgrade, complete each task, and then restart the upgrade to continue.

Gigabyte Gbb36x Controller Driver

I ran the compatibility test for my system preliminary to doing the upgrade from my current vista home premium (win 7 home 32 bit upgrade already ordered from ms store), and the only issue i seem to have is that the subject driver requires attention and may not work with windows 7.

I have tried to update the driver through device manager on my pc with no success (it says the driver i have is best), i have goggled it and found a bunch of those drivers but none that say they are for windows 7, and i have gone to gigabyte's site, but no mention there that i could find (my motherboard is a gigabyte ga-ma-790x-ud4p). I am not even sure what this controller is.

Gotta pardon my ignorance, but i'm 67 yrs old, not very computer smart, and i certainly don't want to mess up my pc when i upgrade. Only time something gets fixed on it is when my kids come home (pretty infrequently).

1394 Host Controller Driver Quit Working

Two days ago i was going to put some video on my computer from my sony handycam minidv camcorder using a firewire connection. I plugged in the camera with the firewire and windows 7 automatically installed the driver and it was successful and everything worked great. The next day i was trying to continue my work on it and when i plugged in the camera it says i need to troubleshoot the driver. When i do that windows 7 tries to fix it and of course fails. Is this a common issue with drivers on the vista/windows 7 platform? Does anybody have any tips?

Hybrid Atsc/qam Multimedia Video Controller Driver

I have a gateway lx6820-01 p/n pt. G790x. 001. I have a hybrid atsc/qam pci-e avs video capture tv tuner card. I just did a clean install from vista to windows 7 and it won't install a driver for my multimedia video controller device. I'm pretty sure that is my tv tuner card. I contacted gateway and they said i would have to update my chipset driver, but there was no support for windows 7 yet. I also went to device manager and tried to update online.

Everything else went flawless on the install except for my graphics card, but i went to the manufacturers' website and updated that driver. I would really like to get my tv tuner card working if possible. Any idea where to get the driver?

Standard Dual Channel Pci Ide Controller Driver

I am attempting to install the windows 7 rc onto my pc. The compatibility check is fine so i try the install. I choose custom because i want a fresh start, not an upgrade. When i select the hard drive (one drive, one partition), it says that "windows cannot be installed on disk 0 partition 1". The details say:

Windows cannot be installed to this disk. Windows needs the driver for device [standard dual channel pci ide controller]. Click 'load driver' and load the required device driver. I tried copying the drivers that xp pro is using with no luck. I copy them to a flash drive and then select them in the install ui. It then just goes back to the same message.

Ati 4379 Serial Ata Controller Driver Update Error

Windows update continually tries to update a driver provided by silicon image storage for ati 4379 serial ata controller. Once i got an error code 80070436. Each time the update tries, it fails. I tried to update the driver from the device mgr. In the control panel, but after searching, a message of 'you have the latest driver installed' appears! I also removed the update from the list in windows update. When i power up the computer, windows tries again to install the driver which i then cancel & again remove from the update list! 

I think this situation may have caused an earlier problem wherein vista wouldn't boot & i had to do a system restore. After my last restore (a few days ago) i started canceling the attempted update & my system now seems to boot up ok. How do i get rid of the attempted update?

Atheros Ar8121/ar8113/ar 8114 Pci-e Driver For Ethernet Controller

In my event viewer, administration log i am getting constant warnings which state, "name resolution for the name isatap. Rn. timed out after none of the configured dns servers responded. " Upon running the network troubleshooter, it points to the ethernet controller, leading me to believe i need an updated driver for the atheros ar8121/ar8113/ar 8114 pci-e. I have a windows 7, 32-bit computer with an asus motherboard p5kpl-am epu. I have been unable to locate this driver when going to the asus or atheros sites. I have found a couple of sites that want me to pay to receive updated drivers but i don't trust giving them my payment info.

This is discouraging to me since i had a local computer retailer make this computer for me and it is only a week old. I guess i could take it back to them but i would like to find this driver first if i could. According to my system info, the driver i am now using it ver. 1. 0. 0. 18, dated 8/23/2009. Any help in finding an updated driver would be greatly appreciated. Also, once i find it, do i just double click it to install? I am new to this kind of thing.

Device Driver Installation

After upgrading to windows 7, i purchased a new linksys wireless n card. I ran through the initial setup with the software provided by linksys, then shut down the computer and installed the card. The installation was supposed to continue when i restarted the computer, but before i could continue the install, windows discovered the device and installed its own driver. I was therefore unable to finish installing the driver provided by linksys. How can i keep windows from installing its driver so that i can install the driver that comes with the card?

Driver Software Installation

I have a problem with windows driver installation. My notebook has a bluetooth and is already installed with proper driver. Every time i boot the machine the "driver software installation" starts and finalize with saying that device driver was not successfully installed. Furthermore the detail describe this is caused by bluetooth peripheral device. Actually i tried to connect my bluetooth phone before but did not succeed. Every time i reboot the same thing happens.

Now, i have disabled windows update, i have disabled the devices and also tried the device installation settings in the control panel etc. But nothing stops this "driver software installation" from starting at the next boot. Is there any way to disable the "driver software installation" from automatically running again and again?

Novatel Driver Installation Failed:1603

Unable to install or uninstall novatel driver - get this message: "driver installation failed:1603" i have had no prior trouble installing and uninstalling programs. I have a new 64 bit viao running win7 that has been a joy for about a month until i tried to use my verizon usb720 wireless modem. I updated the vzaccess software and drivers from verizon's web site. Problem, the driver will not install, getting the above error message - and i cannot uninstall it, either.

I spent 2 hours with verizon tech support and they were unable to resolve the problem, finally claiming it's a windows problem. I found a similar problem posted (also involving the same modem) but the moderator's suggested solution (see below) did not work and was inapplicable to win 7. I did steps 1-4 with no problem, but did not download the 4. 5 installer b/c it is not for win7.

To assist you better, please provide us more information. A) are you able to install other programs without any error message? I would suggest you to unregister and re-register windows installer and check whether it helps. To do so, please follow the steps below: unregister windows installer, and then reregister windows installer. To do this, follow these steps:
1. On the "start" menu, click "run:.
2. In the "open" box, type "msiexec /unreg", and then press enter.
3. On the "start" menu, click "run".
4. In the "open" box, type "msiexec /regserver", and then press enter.
For more information, please refer the link mentioned below:

Also you can download and install latest version on windows installer from the link mentioned below:

After you finish all these steps then you can try installing vzaccess manager software and check this might fix your issue.

Error - Access Denied - Driver Installation Stops

Hp all in one printer driver installation fails, on a clean installed windows 7 (32 bit), manual driver installation stops with "access denied" error message. I have a clean installed windows 7 32 bit. (Not upgraded from vista).

Firstly, hp all in one device photosmart c4280 has been installed automatically and worked fine. After several weeks, it's printing function disappaerad and an error message, saying the driver is missing appeared. Now i can manually scan from windows scan, but whatever i have done, i can not let windows 7 to install the appropriate driver for my printer.

I have used the latest driver software from hp; deleted the printer from devices and restarted and reinstalled. But every time it installs all hp devices but fails for hpphotosmart c4200 series. My user account has admin previleges, already tried with the local admin user, or run the hp driver software in admin mode by right clicking.

Lastly, whenever i try to install the printer driver at print management iu, it starts then halts with an error message "access denied". Printer works fine with another vista machine in my house. So no problem for the printer. I also tried to use the following article, which is actually for the machines which has been upgraded from vista, but it does not work as well.

I doubt, an update from windows update caused this as referenced in the following article for vista upgraded machines. Kb975891 hp multifunction printers and hp full feature software or hp basic driver solutions do not work as expected after a computer upgrades from windows vista to windows 7. Would you be so kind to help me? On the internet i have found hundreds of similar problems with windows 7 and hp printers but couldn't locate any solution yet.
