  • network card and other missing drivers after you have installed windows 7 ultimate on my elitebook 8540w

    HP Elitebook 8540w, model WH137AW #ABA - this laptop and was previously running a trial version of windows 7 Professional 64-bit. I wanted to install windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I chose to install instead of upgrade that I assumed that the demo version was not expandable. Before the installation, I was able to connect to a wireless network with success. After you have installed windows 7 ultimate successfully, I was more able to connect or see all the networks. The diagnosis error indicates that I can miss a network card, or if I don't have one, the driver may need to be reinstalled. I saw a previous post and answer that looked very similar, but the difference is that I am out of my network card driver, so I'm not able to download any other drivers. -help me please!

    Hi Shivj,

    Research on the Samsung website listing their models that are compatible in Windows 8, I do not see yours listed?  Please take a look at their link here.  Keep in mind of this site "* only models listed above are supported for Windows 8 upgrade."

    You may be able to install the drivers in compatibility mode, but if it does not, you will need to go through the Samsung support site.

    Thank you!

  • After you have installed windows software loses icon associations.

    Nice day! I'm having a problem with icons after installing some software. Here's situation step by step.

    (1) my PC has 2 accounts - local (Administrator) and domain (with admin rights) - problem appears at the same time.
    (2) I tried to install 2 software - a) Google Sketchup Pro, b) steam ( - problem appeared in both cases. At the same time, I have these software on my other PC and it never done this kind of problems.
    ((3) just after the installation of a) or b) finishes - Office flashes and the icons of the .doc (x) (x) .xls, .pdf; icons to run Skype, Word, Excel, Acrobat and some other software appear as unknown file - software still works, opening files, but inches disappear. Same thing happens for top thumbs - they appear as strangers, while the software is running.
    (4) what happens then? I tried to delete IconCache.db via "cmd":
    Taskkill /im explorer.exe/f
    CD %userprofile%\appdata\local
    attrib-h IconCache.db
    Del IconCache.db
    > restart
    Delete IconCache.db just doesn't help (all antivirus, network and system screens have been extinguished before it) - after reboot icons stay distorted.
    Also tried variants that did not help too - with changing from depths of icons from 32 to 16 bit colors, small/large icons, manipulations through customization and options of the file with the display of the page instead of previews layouts, etc. - There have been described in this branch forums.
    (5) I tried the next order of steps that worked to fix things to normal (and it fixes the problem now only in this order):
    1. turn off all antivirus/brandmauer software
    2 uninstall sketchup pro/steam (or possible software which can cause the same problem)
    3 run the previous points system restore a few days back (return system for the "time just prior to installation ' doesn't work - only more earlier point work very well)
    4 restart the PC
    -J' I need this way I get eveything was all of that "great" the exception of software before installing the software,.
    What can I do else? I can assume this software I try to install changes something in the registry, possibly [HKLM] or maybe corrupted mime-type associations, but I don't know what I should look for and what to do corruption of type mime association IMHO is less possible then the registry because all the software works very well and if I open the file properties I see of program that opens - only the corrupted icons.
    I tried to install the software that is required under the local administrator - problem stays, is not the problem of the rights of domain/local.
    Also this note (I don't know may cause these problems or not)-after installing the OS I changed of owner of the HARD drive in the "Trusted Installer" options (which brand owner automatically during installation of the operating system) on my 'domain account '.
    Seems like it is.
    Hoping to get help!
    Best regards

  • After you have installed windows 10, I can't use apple wireless key board and mouse magic. any solution

    I am facing a strange situation. I used Win7 on BootCamp. Last week attempted to upgrade to Win10. After the upgrade is perfect, I could not connect to the wifi or wired internet. called the Apple support, Windows supports, no one would help you. Downgraded to Win7, after decommissioning, apple wireless key board and mouse magic does not work. Called Apple support, after nearly 90 minutes of interaction with them, ZERO, no solution result. Apple support told me that an Apple engineer will call me at my appointed time. A call came, but no one answered.

    So, today did a clean install of Win10 through BootCamp. All right, BUT I still can't use apple wireless key board and mouse magic. Can someone help me with this situation? Apple & Microsoft support engineers have failed to help out me. Thanks in advance.

    Have you installed the Boot Camp Windows Support software?

  • After you have installed windows 7 on my pc, sometimes different errors whenever I start a game! and I lie down the computer.

    I just installed windows 7 64 bit of vista 32 bit on my acer and then I can't play all games, there is always a different error on games. It has stopped working or a mistake happens! It makes me a little angry when all I wanted was a better pc and now I have sittet in a few days and finally got it right, and then everythings blowing!

    Hi, Jacob Sulkjaer,.

    There are many reasons for the game does not work correctly because each game has its own requirements.

    Method 1

    Check if the game is compatible with Windows 7 64-bit using the Compatibility Center.

    Method 2

    If you receive same error message after the game is compatible Windows 7, then check the power to the game manual if any software or plugin is required for the game works properly on the game provider's Web site.

    Method 3

    Many games need updated versions to day or greater cards installed on the computer.

    You may need to update the graphics card drivers on the computer by visiting the website of manufacturer of graphics cards download and install the updated driver and check if it works.

    Also update the motherboard chipset drivers by visiting the site of computer manufacturer.

    I hope this helps!

  • I need help, I have tried everything! Network controller after you have installed windows 7 on a windows 8.1 machine!

    Hi all!

    I have a Dell Inspiron 3521. It was 8.1 on Windows and I installed Windows 7 Pro OEM 64 bit. I delete the old file of windows. I was able to install all the drivers from Dell Web site, but I can't seem to find a way to get the right driver for the "network controller". I have tried driver identifier and it shows me two missing drivers: 1: BCM43142A0, 2: network controller.

    This is the ID of the MDO of material:

    PCI\VEN_14E4 & DEV_4365 & SUBSYS_00161028 & REV_01
    PCI\VEN_14E4 & DEV_4365 & SUBSYS_00161028
    PCI\VEN_14E4 & DEV_4365 & CC_028000
    PCI\VEN_14E4 & DEV_4365 & CC_0280

    I found a post with someone who has the same keys, but the driver in the link did not help me. Maybe it's the way I installed the drivers? Or how I installed windows 7?

    Help, please!
