Usb Driver Malfunction


Usb driver malfunction (win 7 problem) - ? Randomly renewing itself? A usb device will disconnect and connect momentarily (within about 3-10 min of use ) with out any physical changes happening. It only happens to all my windows 7 computers. It is more common with usb printers, usb mass storage devices, and usb mice so far. It doesn't happen to all the devices connected, just one of them, for example: on computer.

I have - usb printer, usb mouse, usb flash drive, usb hdd (the only one affected is the usb hdd); computer b - usb mouse, usb printer, usb keyboard, usb flash drive (the only one affected is the usb mouse); computer c - "same setup" (only the usb printer is affected). I have determined it is not a hardware issue, it is something with windows 7 i can't explain.

Dual Monitors Malfunction

Dual monitors, whilst using dual monitors i could not maximize the windows as shown in the task pan when i hover the cursor on it. I disconnected one monitor and the problem disappeared. I disconnected the other monitor and again the problem disappeared. I switched connection between the sockets ( i.e. Monitor to plug b and vice versa) and the problem disappeared. Any ideas how to restore to dual monitor viewing?

Keyboard Keys Malfunction

I'm having alot of problems when i have to type something on my new laptop computer. It's windows 7. I didn't have this problem before, so i don't know if it's because of the system. When i try to use specific punctuation i get another character. This only happens in certain programs, such as microsoft works word processor, if i use a search engine, yahoo answers, and a few other places. For example, when i press shift + ?, In certain programs i get ‰.

If i want to use a question mark i have to open another program, type the question mark copy, and paste it. That's alot of damn work to ask a proper question. If i type shift + @, i get ", shift + #, i get /, shift + ^, i get ?, Shift + {, i get ^, shift + } i get ", shift + i get<, etc, etc, etc, etc. I need this resolved. It either makes my business letters look unprofessional because of the typos, or it takes me longer than necessary to type.

Usb Driver Issues

When i attempt to plug in a usb storage device, be it an external hard drive, an ipod, or a usb memory stick, windows tells me it's trying to install the driver, but then quickly shifts to saying "device driver software was not successfully installed. " When i click on this balloon, it says that the device driver couldn't be installed. After a bit of research, i went to my device manager, which had the name of the thing i was trying to get working (in this case, a freeagent xtreme external hard drive), but the little usb symbol next to it had a yellow caution symbol.

Right clicking on it, i tried to update the software by having windows search automatically for the driver software. Soon, it came back telling me that "the best driver software for your device is already installed", and showed the driver as the usb mass storage device. Only, the hard drive is still not working, and any attempts to update the driver only serve to tell me that the mass storage device is up-to-date. Looking at the properties for the device, the device status box says to "reinstall the drivers for this device. (Code 18). "

Doing so goes back again to tell me that the mass storage device driver is already installed. My keyboard and mouse are both usb, and they work fine, no matter what usb port i connect them to. Yet, these problems persist for any storage device i try, on any usb port i try. Any help is appreciated!

Usb Driver Not Recognized

I keep getting error message "usb driver not recognized" every three seconds? And it does not identify which one has malfunctioned! Normally, the only one attached is my mouse. Printer (canon mx100 series) won't work! Everything is hooked up, driver downloaded (from canon) and it still just won't work. I had a canon sent to me with this laptop. (Which worked, finally) i am not a novice either, been working with and on others computers for over 25 years!

Running windows vista home premium program and trying to use outlook express. Being told windows live has taken over as the new outlook, however, keep being told to sign up for hotmail. When you do? You keep being told to sign up for hotmail? Then it'll tell you that you have no inbox (and you never get to your email even though its telling you you have many emails sent to you already).

This is so awesome (or is it awful?) Think its time for a mac rather than a pc.

Usb 2.0 Tv Box Driver

I bought a new tv tuner card(mron). Installed all required drivers provided by the company. When tv plugged in, the os is unable to detect the drivers.

Problem With Usb Driver From Ms

On two different (brand new) computers, with fresh installs of ms win7 (x64 enterprise ed. ), The usb drivers (from microsoft) somehow. Unsigned themselves. Thus making it impossible to use a usb based keyboard and mouse w/ a regular boot. I must have my users press f8 to disable the digital driver signing check (which i would rather not make them do for several reasons).

Is there any way to re-sign the drivers, or re-download them or something?  I've tried taking the system back to previous states and downloading drivers from windows update with no success.

Cannot Uninstall A Usb Device Driver

I tried to install a usb dual serial port on this window 7 computer and it corrupted an exsisting usb driver. I can see the device i when i look in the device manager and in "programs and features" but i can't uninstall it. The uninstall function asks for an update file which i don't have (the iar development tool is a single install). If i could uninstall this "driverx for msp-fet430if" then i could uninstall / re install the complete program. How can i get window 7 to just uninstall this driver?

Hauppauge Usb Tv Tuner Driver Issue

Default driver has poor video quality for usb 950/980 hauppauge analog tv tuner, manual install has great quality. Windows 7 does not install the better quality or updated driver for my usb tv tuner even when i use device manager to check for updated driver. It says "the best driver software for your device is already installed". I downloaded software from hauppauge and manually updated the driver using device manager and having it search the drivers folders from the download, and a newer driver was installed.

I can imagine that many users of this particular usb tv tuner might not be aware that there is a better driver available for their device and the video quality can be vastly improved with an update. But the update will not happen without manually downloading and installing the drivers as i have done. I myself had 3 tv tuners, 2 of which plugged into the motherboard and the third being the usb version.

Any recording i did that used the usb tuner had poor video quality (noticeable jaggies - a technical term :-) ), the other tuners had good quality video recordings. So i stopped using the usb tuner, but discovered the new driver many months later and started using it again. Fter switching to the 64 bit version of windows, the internal tv tuners no longer worked unless i set the ram to less than 4 gb of memory. Nyway, i had been using the rc version of windows 7 and only a few days ago have started using windows 7, the retail version.

I was surprised that the video quality was terrible, the jaggies were back, and windows 7 was telling me i had the best drivers already installed. I would think that windows 7 should have offered the better drivers automatically, and until it does, some users may be missing out on better quality tv recording.

Fuji Finepix F31fd Usb Driver

Currently running win7 pro x64 (via ieee membership) and installed a gamut of programs and devices (and so far everything works) except for my digital camera. I can install the program (fiji finepix viewer) but the usb driver it uses to recognize the camera does not install/will not work. I've tried fuji's site and came up fruitless. Fuji's line of cameras do not just plug in and come up as a removable drive like others; it requires their exif program, usually running in the taskbar, before plugging it in (and turning it on). Is anyone aware of a compatible driver or of a procedure to remedy this?

Alfa Rt3070 Usb Driver Disabled

I have an alfa networks usb wifi card model awus036nh using a ralink rt3070 chipset inside. I've tried to install my card using the included cd in windows 7 ultimate 32bits. I've also tried downloading drivers from alfa web page and ralink webpage for my usb card. Ll is installed but the card is disabled in windows "lan conections". When i click on enable it, it continues disabled. If i click on diagnose it sais that there's a problem with the driver that is incompatible.

I don't know what else to do because i've also change my usb cable but the problem continues. I installed in a windows vista ultimate 64 bits and the same problem with my card. There's a thing i consider: the blue light in the usb card is blinking or is active, i think that means that the card is working but i can't use it. Please help me to resolve this.

Cannot Update Usb Print Driver Without Error

I am trying to get an hp 4100 laserjet printer to work on my new windows 7 ultimate 64 bit laptop. When i plug in the printer through a usb adapter cable, windows 7 finds and loads a compatible driver hp4100 pcl6. The printer works most of the time, but i get errors when i try to print many images. According to the hp forums, the pcl6 driver has issues just like this, and they suggest using either a pcl5 or ps driver instead. I explored using add printer and found that there is a windows 7 64 compatible driver hp4100 ps available if i select to use windows update to find all the latest printer drivers.

Since i could not find any way to get windows 7 to let me select the driver (it always installs hp4100 pcl6 without asking or letting me intervene), i tried going to printer properties > advanced on the printer screen. I selected new driver, chose the hp4100 ps driver from the list, and it seemed to install it. However, as soon as i went back to printer properties, i got an error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed and asking if i want to install it.

When i look under print server properties, the hp4100 ps driver is listed. It also appears on the printer properties > advanced screen for the driver. However, every time i select printer properties i get the error that the hp4100 ps driver is not installed. It seems to be a problem of the error message, not the driver.

The other strange thing is, if i select properties for the printer, and look at at hardware, it shows hp4100 pcl6 (the one i removed) along with usb printer services. What can i do to get windows to recognize this new driver? Or, alternately, if i delete the printer, what can i do to keep windows from reinstalling the default hp4100 pcl6 automatically when i next plug in the printer and let me select the driver i want. I could find no way to override the install.

Update Installed Driver Corrupted Usb Hub

This afternoon i let microsoft update install some updates that were listed as "optional". Suddenly things stopped working. I realized they were things connected to my usb hub, a 7-port belkin f4u047. Windows now thinks it's a bluetooth adapter. The specific drivers are in system32driversthport.sys, bthusb.sys, and fsquirt.exe. I can't remove and reinstall. I can't delete the drivers, update or rollback. I can't find a way to uninstall the update. It shows up in update history, but is not available in add/remove programs.

I'm stumped. What do i do?

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?

Talktalk Snu5630ns 05 Wireless Usb Adapter Driver Compatibility

I am using the talktalk snu5630ns 05 wireless usb adapter, in the beta version of windows 7 the device installed with windows xp drivers and ran better than it did on xp.

After switching back to xp professional i have been looking for solutions to this problem but have found none, does anyone have the same problem and does anyone have a solution to this problem or will i need to buy a new usb dongle?

Usb Flash Drives Device Driver Software Not Successfully Installed

Usb external drives, usb flash drives "device driver software not successfully installed". Acer and windows 7 problem. Not sure which one i am more frustrated with. Acer or microsoft trying to get decent customer service out of either seems so difficult. Ok, its a common enough issue.

I've seen this everywhere in other forums and every finger points back to microsoft. Usb flash drives, jump drives, memory sticks, thumb drives, whatever they are called, they don't work on my acer laptop. Yet all work perfectly well on my vista pc and my work xp. So they are not damaged. Also a freecom external 1tb usb drive. Doesn't work on win 7.

I have an acer 5338 (less than a year old) which sadly as windows as an oem so microsoft aren't interested in helping saying it's acer's problem. Acers website doesn't even acknowledge existence of the the model laptop i have which makes contacting them for a solution physically impossible (anyone got a phone number or email address>). Anyway they had a free upgrade to win 7.

(Oh you cannot imagine how much i wish i hadn't. ). So i upgraded. And all usb memory devices suddenly don't work. Ll of them try to load drivers then give up with the error message. Just to get the usual answers out of the way!I've tested the usb ports. All work. I've uninstalled all the usb ports and let win 7 re-install them. No problem i've cleared the file that keeps records of drives.

I did a new clean install. Nothing changed. Can't upgrade chipset drivers. Won't let me, says i don't need them every drive appears during the boot screen. Every drive appears in device manager but showing as fault. Updated, installed, deleted, re-installed every driver on the planet. Tried the 'regedit' solution suggested elsewhere, fragged my laptop, lucky i system restored up. Doesn't appear on disk management so can't deal with any drive letter conflicts. Have no virus.

Have only one firewall installed. Have prayed have hit the flipping thing have pleaded have pretended to cry. Not interested. So, i am hoping against hope that someone has a solution to this issue. I have a vague thought that it could be something to do with 'ports' and port settings. That, i am afraid is a closed book to me, so please, geniuses everywhere, give me something new to try! Or a way to speak to a human at acer!

Belkin F5d8053 V3 Wireless Usb Nic Installing Driver Problem

I just installed windows 7 64bit on my computer. I obtained drivers for the 64 bit version for all my hardware before i did the installation. The driver  belkin provided won't install properly. I opened the nic and it has what appears to be a ralink ra2770f chip in it. I poked around on the internet a bit and tried the driver from the ralink web site which was suggested. No luck. I went to best buy to see what wireless usb nic's they had which would be supported under win 7_64; they didn't have any. I am running all the latest software/bios from intel for my board. Same for my other hardware.

What can i do to get my belkin wireless adapter to work?  Everything else works just fine.

Intel dg33fb, intel core 2 duo e6440 @2. 13 gh, msi geforce 220 gt, ht omega claro halo, 8gb mem

If you get confused, listen to the music play.
