  • USB mouse and keyboard stop working after I have install Windows Update KB2913431

    After installation automatic Windows Update KB2913431 (Win 7 Enterprise), the computer seems to work very well, but my mouse and keyboard stop working.  The option of automatic repair after that start with F8 does not work.  He said that the error is "unspecified".

    The fool is that it has created a constellation of intermittent problems when I try other options to get these devices to function after the update.  The questions I will of unpowered USB ports, grateful Windows and install the drivers for USB devices, but then do not recognize their (and are not), random BSOD, restore points invalid system, random boot failure, which causes discs to randomly stop working properly, closed randomly , à... I think you get the idea.

    I think it must be a driver problem.  I passed through the Device Manager and uninstall all hidden devices.  I have updated the drivers for everything that has an update available.  I tried to disable all, but Microsoft services at startup and in the list of "services".  I've always been unsuccessful; However, when I can get it to successfully restore to a point before the update (none of the automatic restore points work correctly) it seems ok.  It will sometimes seem to work after I applied the update, but then go haywire shortly after.  I am convinced that it is not a hardware problem, given that the prior update restores (when they actually cross without failure) work very well.

    I went through countless articles in the knowledge base and tried all the suggestions I've seen, other than registry cleaners because I had a bad experience with this earlier.  I tried so many things that I lost count and the memory of some of them.

    I reached point is never install the update (an option that I prefer not to use) or creating a clean Windows install on another drive (an option that I prefer not to use, but I'm a little more friendly to).  I already started to back up files to prepare a clean install, but I reach out one last time before I pull the trigger.

    Thanks in advance for your suggestions you have!

    Vista and Windows 7 updated drivers love then here's how update the most important.

    This is my generic how updates of appropriate driver:

    This utility, it is easy see which versions are loaded:

    -Free - DriverView utility displays the list of all device drivers currently loaded on your system.
    For each driver in the list, additional useful information is displayed: load address of the driver,
    Description, version, product name, company that created the driver and more.

    For drivers, visit manufacturer of emergency system and of the manufacturer of the device that are the most common.
    Control Panel - device - Graphics Manager - note the brand and complete model
    your video card - double - tab of the driver - write version information. Now, click on update
    Driver (this can do nothing as MS is far behind the certification of drivers) - then right-click.
    Uninstall - REBOOT it will refresh the driver stack.

    Repeat this for network - card (NIC), Wifi network, sound, mouse, and keyboard if 3rd party
    with their own software and drivers and all other main drivers that you have.

    Now in the system manufacturer (Dell, HP, Toshiba as examples) site (in a restaurant), peripheral
    Site of the manufacturer (Realtek, Intel, Nvidia, ATI, for example) and get their latest versions. (Look for
    BIOS, Chipset and software updates on the site of the manufacturer of the system here.)

    Download - SAVE - go to where you put them - right click - RUN AD ADMIN - REBOOT after
    each installation.

    Always check in the Device Manager - drivers tab to be sure the version you actually install
    presents itself. This is because some restore drivers before the most recent is installed (sound card drivers
    in particular that) so to install a driver - reboot - check that it is installed and repeat as

    Repeat to the manufacturers - BTW in the DO NOT RUN THEIR SCANNER device - check
    manually by model.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    If you update the drivers manually, then it's a good idea to disable the facilities of driver under Windows
    Updates, that leaves about Windows updates but it will not install the drivers that will be generally
    older and cause problems. If updates offers a new driver and then HIDE it (right click on it), then
    get new manually if you wish.

  • Capacity wireless suddenly stopped working after an update of Windows Vista.

    Feature WiFi suddenly stopped working after a windows vista updated.  Wireless switch is engaged, but stays yellow that messeges troubleshooting all say computer does not detect wireless devices.  It's as if someone pulled the unit and the antenna of the portable computer.  I also downloaded the wireless drivers and Setup several times without success.  Wireless device appears in the Device Manager page.  The only thing that is showing and work is the cable which is how I can download the drivers and appear on this forum.  Is it possible that the wireless device is broken?  All applicable lights are lit on the networking modem, no signal is detected on the computer, I have concluded that the wireless on the laptop is just inop.  Either way, I have a Compaq Presario F700 laptop.  All the options out there?  Thank you

    original title: can't find the wireless device

    Hello again, Kathy,

    More specific instruction, I can give to check settings in the BIOS of your system is to search for a list of devices that installed your laptop. There are only two options for each device, activate them and deactivate them.
    Look for something listed as network radio or wireless card and make sure that it is set to enable.
    The option that you network adapter found can also control the wireless adapter, but it can control only the plug adapter (Ethernet) network.
    A simpler solution, if you have not already tried it it is the system restore in Windows as mentioned by Kiran in a previous answer:
    WARNING: Changing the BIOS / semiconductor (CMOS) to complementary metal oxide settings can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from starting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the configuration of the BIOS/CMOS settings can resolved e. Changes to settings are at your own risk.
  • Dell Vostro 1510 Audio has stopped working after the update of Windows Vista.

    Nice day!

    My computer (vostro 1510) began to revolt recently and I wonder if you could help me with this.

    Basically, last week I was talking to my friend on Skype when suddenly my computer restarted due to the update of Windows (I have Windows Vista Business 32-bit). After he turned his back, I realized that there is no audio from the speakers. I tried using headphones but still - no sound.

    Immediately, I went to the 'Sounds' menu and checked if my speakers were still 'active '. They have been.
    Next thing I decided to do was to reinstall the Realtek audio driver, however, did not help or the other. Since then, I tried to reinstall several times but, unfortunately, everything remained the same.

    Then, I thought that maybe something was wrong with my hardware, however, audio spent ALL Dell diagnostics audio tests (so my hardware is very good, yes?). I also tried "System Restore" option and returned to the point before the update... Nothing has changed!

    In addition, as far as I know, all the audio settings in Windows (checked in Registry Editor) are OK.

    What should I do now? My last hope is to completely reinstall the system, however, I decided to contact you first.

    Thanks in advance!

    Solved the problem by reinstalling the operating system.

    Thank you!

  • Helvetica Neue stop working when I updated to CS5.5

    I just bought CS5.5 and updgraded to CS3. When I open InDesign 5.5 to run, none of my Helvetica Neue font family works. It is by default at the time and all the files that I never created the text all the default values. Helvetica Neue is our cast of company I use 99.9% of the day. I bought the police doctor, because I assumed that there was too many versions of the same font run, a system check and clean a BUNCH of stuff. Still does not work. I have reset preferences InDesign 5.5 and still no change. I snatched the police one of our other computers and reinstalled and still does not work. In FontBook it has warnings that there are multiply copies but does not help the copies of the deactivation. Next, I opened the old 3 InDesign and here, there are all my fonts and they WORK!

    So now, I checked all my programs:

    InDesign CS3: Helvetica Neue works

    The inDesign CS5.5: Does not work

    Illustrator CS3: works

    Illustrator CS5.1: works

    Photoshop CS3: works

    Photoshop CS5.1: Does not work

    I have no idea of what happens, I hope someone has an idea and can help me.

    I'd just uninstall 5.5 and try again.

    I am panic and can't do my work.

    Thank you


    My computer is a Mac 10.6.8.

    It may have been installed in the fonts for the InDesign program folder.

    If all goes well, you kept a previous version of InDesign installed.

    Open CS4, type some Helv Neue, select

    Type > find font

    In this dialog box, select Helv N, choose more information

    It will show you the path to where the font is installed.

    Install in the OS Fonts folder or the folder of fonts for the CS5.5 ID program

  • Satellite Pro L300 - sound is not working properly

    Hi all!

    Last week, I bought my Toshiba Satellite Pro L300.
    I have had no operating system with the laptop, but I had my own XP, so I changed the SATA drives in compatibility mode and installed windows XP Pro.
    (By the way this is a Vista laptop officially)
    I installed all the drivers, but I have a problem with the sound. It has a bad quality, but this isn't the biggest problem.
    If I start listening to music, the sound stops every 3-4 seconds for a fraction of a second. It's as if the processor worked (like the computer was loading, and the processor is a bit overloaded) I usually have this experience if I run many programs simultaneously on my old computer, it slows down and the music stops for a second. But on the new laptop, I run winamp, I have dp nothing but listen to the music, and I get this problem.

    Can anyone help? Is it because of XP? Or the driver does not work properly? Or I have a big problem and should go back to the store?
    Please write!

  • BSOD STOP 0 x 00008086 on Satellite Pro L300 - 1 K PSLB9E


    My son came back from uni with his laptop which, to quote ' is knacked - no idea what the problem - been like that for weeks...» »

    At startup, it goes to the green bar of process, then goes off, then comes up with the BSOD - technical details: Stop:

    0 x 00008086 (0x00000000) (0x00000000) (0x00000000) (0x00000000)

    At this point, I didn't get any action with her, when I make a bad situation worse.

    The laptop is a Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 - 1 K (PSLB9E) running Windows Vista.
    (I would provide more information, if I could, but can't until I can start to check specifications)

    Thanks in advance.


    BSOD can be caused by a hardware or software problem.
    First of all, you should check if it s not software related issue.
    In such cases, it of needed to reinstall the Windows operating system.
    Usually the new OS installed should not cause any BSOD!

    If the Toshiba Recovery disk does not help you, then you should start to investigate
    It may be a cause of modules defective memory BSOD issue very often.

    However, if you have no knowledge about computers, then you should ask a technician to downtown to control parts.

  • Satellite Pro L300 - Webcam driver open fail

    Where is the problem? the pilot? I'm desperate...

    Thanks in advance


    Before performing a recovery facility, you should try to update the driver for the webcam and the BIOS. The two you can find on the Toshiba site: > support & downloads > download drivers

    If it doesn t work you must run an installation recovery and in the worst case, the hardware may be faulty and you will need assistance from an authorized service provider.
    If your laptop is still under warranty, the repair should be free.

  • My new Satellite Pro L300 will not work

    I bought a new Toshiba Satellite Pro L300 on eBay. I connected all the cables according to the installation guide. At first he asked my details, then I logged in and it went to a pages where he says he was preparing. Then I was sent to the newspaper in the section, and the same page appeared saying that he was preparing.

    After what happens about 5 times, he went to a black screen where the only thing I could see was my mouse cursor.

    I closed and restarted, I tried to go into the settings using F12. I was not able to work at all, no matter what I do.
    Unfortunately, I don't have a CD of the OS, but it was announced as having Vista as OS and have Microsoft Office Suite on him as a built-in wireless modem, so it was supposed to be ready just to turn it on. Well I can't even turn it on.

    What should I do? How should I do?

    At first, I must say that F12 has nothing to do with all the settings.
    At this point, I recommend using the new operating system installation using the HDD recovery procedure.
    How to proceed as a result of this document, you can find >
