Installed Windows 7 on nw8440 - problems

After I installed Windows 7 on my nw8440 I can't access my SD card in the built-in player and I can't access the internal hard drive, I in an external case connected by USB.  I can connect to my MyBook but not this other HDD.  FYI, I installed Windows 7 as a new installation and used the transfer program to import my settings and files.  I think I need drivers for these devices, but I can't get my computer to see a problem and HP offers no Windows 7 drivers for nw8440.  Any help is appreciated. Thank you.




Here you will find drivers for Vista 32-bit (Windows 7 32 bit) that need to be modded before installing.


I know that your card is not listed there but this map is based on the x 1600 chipset.

After modification it will be detected correctly as V5200.

Check ' step by step installation guide ' which is located on the lower part of the page of HardwareHeaven here.

Here you will find instructions how to mod this driver.

After installation, you may have a problem with correct resolution setting that fits your screen. Check this thread how to solve this problem.

Please report on the results. From what I see on the internet that many people are looking for this answer.

If it will solve this problem, I will ask administartors to put this topic as resolved.

  • Cannot install Windows 7 HARD drive problems

    Hi all!

    I have lenovo ThinkPad T540p. Intel Core I7, 8 GB RAM and 500 GB HARD drive. I think my HARD drive is Toshiba. It had Windows 7 on it, but it starts no more on this subject. When I start Windows is it shows 5 seconds black screen, and then it displays the Boot Menu. Well, I tried to reinstall Windows, but when I have to choose on which disk to install Windows, I get an error: "no hard drive found." And the list with readers is empty, so I can't reinstall Windows. I've updated the BIOS, but it did not help. Finally, I formatted my HARD drive and created two partitions on it. It worked, but not for long. I installed Windows 7. Everything was going well until I restarted my computer. And then I got the same problem: 'Cannot start from the HARD disk' and displays the Start Menu. Then I booted Windows installation and I got the same error: "no hard drive found."

    I don't understand what is happening with my HARD drive and that is to destroy his scores.

    And I don't think that my HARD drive is broken.

    I don't really know what to do!
    Please, help me!

    Thanks a lot!

    Here is the solution:

    My HARD drive was broken. I bought a new MX100 of Crucial SSd and everything is fine.

  • Cannot install Windows 7 Professional. Problems with partitions.

    I have a problem installing WIN 7 Pro, I think that I managed to install a re - install Win 7 ultimate disc that came with my DELL laptop. As the disc, I guess that for a single use, something happened to prevent its use. Unfortunately I cannot start my new Zoostorm ACPI x 64-based PC successfully because windows will in the repair attempt, but can not correct now.
    When I load the new Windows 7 pro, I get that, where you want to install windows, where
    Disk 0 Partition 1, total size: 100MB. Free space: 78MB; Type: SC (reserved). When click on format gives the warning: the partition might contain recovery, system files or software files important computer manufacturer you. If you format this partition, all data will be lost.
    The detail shows: Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. Windows must be installed on a partition formatted in NTFS.  Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is a partition of EFI (ESP) system.
    Disk 0 Partition 2; total size: 128 MB; Free space: 128 MB; Type: SC (reserved). The warning on this is: Windows cannot be installed to this hard disk space. The partition is a partition MSR (Microsoft Reserved).

    On the three I haveoptions: Refresh; Delete; Format or load drivers.

    I think I can segment the readers already, so don't want to do it again.
    I can't start windows successfully, cannot use the update option.
    If you have any ideas on this one I would be most grateful. Best regards Steve

    I have a Lenovo ThinkPad Edge 13 665D817 without an operating system and be able to install Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (msdnaa version). I actually had the Thinkpad even before and managed to install Windows 7 withouth any problems.

    After starting from the USB stick during installation without hard drive is located. To this end, I insert a second usb key with drivers for AMD AHCI Controller Device Driver for Windows 7 and select the directory of win7 64 bit. A driver to install is offered, but after installing it, it seems as if nothing happened. No disk is detected, and I can't continue the installation.

    thx for the help

    (by the way, the proposed here spell check does not recognize "Lenovo" - * lol *)

    I saw this happen occasionally during installation via the USB port. In my experience, it is when a USB 3.0 or eSATA/USB combo port is present. It does not occur if start you it from a Windows existing, nor happens during the installation of optical media.

    There is something that includes ImageX that you can use to install Windows, but that gets a little complicated.

  • Can satellite L300D - I install Windows XP?

    Can someone help me or tell me the best thing to do?

    I bought my Toshiba Satellite L300D two years ago and it broke last year because I hit it a little because of the internet. So I sent offshore to a friend of my uncle, who has replaced the drive with a 35 GB hard inside you. But now, whenever I turn on my laptop I get the blue screen and it cannot cross, he says that windows can be corrupted and is not loading and it says to use the original installation CD, but I don't have one, but I have a Windows XP one and I would make Windows XP instead of Vista.

    Is there anything I can do to get it working again? Please help me quickly

    Thank you


    > use the original installation CD, but I have not a
    Yes, because you have to create this disk yourself using preinstalled creator of media recovery Toshiba as mentioned in the user manual.
    Have you read the user manual?

    You can order a recovery disc that will restore the original settings of the case:

    Of course, you can install Windows XP s no problem. Just make sure you can get all the drivers on the official page of download driver Toshiba. If so, boot from the XP disc and follow the on-screen instructions to install it.

  • After installing windows XP Pro my computer does not start correctly

    After you have installed Windows XP Pro on my HP Pavilion (updated to XP home), my computer will not end the restart process.  I have repeatedly in a loop once the blue screen with the HP logo.  When this has happened before after installing a pack of updates for XP Home, we just started in safe mode and then had it will restart at an earlier time, thus eliminating the updates.  However, now when I try to start in safe mode, I get an error message that says: "Windows Setup cannot start in safe mode" and I leave safe mode.  We hoped that by installing Windows XP Pro, this problem should go away.  Can anyone help?  I have read several other entries in the forum for similar problems, but they all have to do with updates.  This is the first time I was not able to use safe mode, so now I'm stuck.  I hope that I can avoid having to perform a full system recovery, since it is a long involved process and having once before, I always felt the same restart problems after installing updates.

    PA bear,

    Thank you for help... After reading several posts in the forum, one of them reminded people to check with the manufacturer of the computer so that possible solutions... and this is the solution here, I wish I thought of him earlier... I did a system recovery to remove the Windows HP Pro and return to the original version of the default value.  Then I went to the HP site and downloaded the patch according to their directions.  Problems fixed! :-)

    Any PERSON HAVING HARD REBOOT YOUR HP PAVILION (with an AMD processor) after you install Windows XP service pack 2 or 3 updates:

    HP has a patch that solved all my problems.  Clearly, service packs contain information for Intel processors that is in conflict with AMD processors in many HP Pavilion desktop computers.  You can go to their customer service solutions website and download the patch.  Since I did it, I had no other problems. I wish just that I had discovered the solution until I had to do a full system recovery.

    If your computer hangs on reboot 'loop', see if this info. HP will help you:

    The computer restarts after a Stop error message display 0x0000007E (after update with Service Pack 3 for Windows XP)

  • I can't dual boot my PC pre-installed Windows 7 with Windows XP?

    I created a primary partition on my Windows 7 PC preinstalled in freeing up space. When I start my PC the Windows XP installation CD, Windows XP will in the usual configuration process by displaying the F6 option on the screen blue etc and it unloads the controllers and disks required.  However, when the installation phase starts, an error message appears: "a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.  Continue displaying the error message "If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears the following steps - check for viruses, run Chkdsk.  It is followed by a time code error stop: 0X0000007B etc.  Please note that I checked my computer for any viruses and none have been reported.  I ran CHKDSK in guest of user privileges to administrator and windows has checked the file system had no problem.

    It is important to mention that since I managed to install a copy of Windows Vista on my PC pre-installed Windows 7 without any problem.  I can now now dual boot between the two OSs.  Unfortunately, I can not install a new genuine copy of Windows XP on my PC.  I get the same old error message after configuring setup blue screen whenever I try to install Windows XP.  Now, it seems that I have to buy another PC to install XP despite the fact that I have a lot of space on the hard drive of Windows 7 preinstalled PC.  I am aware of the fact that Windows XP uses a different startup for Windows 7/Vista file, but my computer must always allow Windows XP install.

    I am just totally baffled by the latter.   It is normally recommended to install Windows XP before Windows 7, but because my PC is preinstalled with Windows 7, this recommeded option has not been available to me.  I would appreciate any suggestion to this problem of people there.

    "the SATA driver will be included in the Chipset Drivers?" - Yes they are generally at least that your SATA ports are connected to a separate SATA/RAID chip.

    There are two good utilities to create a "SlipStreamed" CD
    (1) Autostreamer - easy to use. (Only not for the integration of the drivers)
    (2) nLite - which is more complex, but you can integrate drivers

  • Cannot install Windows 10, no compatible graphics

    Windows10 compatibility says my screen is not compatible and will not be updated to Windows 10 of my Windows 7 Pro 32-bit. The monitor is supported, but not the graphics card, a Pro PCI Express RadeonX1300. By AMD, the former driver for this card is only compatible with Windows8 and 10, but not 7. There is a long post on this community on how to make your old card work after installing Windows 10, but my problem is that it installs any. I thought that Windows10 was supposed to select a generic driver that I would then have to tweek, but does not. Can anyone help?

    Original title: Windows 10 and older graphics cards

    I don't know where, on the AMD website, you found a statement that he was a driver for the Radeon X 1300, that would work for Windows 8 and 10, but not 7.  When I looked, the Windows operating system only mentioned for this card were XP and Vista.  On the HP site, there is a version a little more early of Vista driver which is supposed to work for 7.

    I suspect that the X 1300 is just too old for Windows 10, despite the claims of various sketchy web sites they have 10 Windows drivers for this card.

    I suggest you get a new video card.  It may be an old (and so expensive), but not quite as old as the X 1300.  See, for example, the last two posts on this thread-->

  • Bluescreen error C000021a, when installing Windows 7

    Hi all

    I get this blue screen whenever I try to install windows 7.
    Details you need to know:
    • I just replaced my hard drive with a new one.
    • Old hard drive: 500 GB Samsung SATA.
    • New hard drive: SATA 500 GB Western Digital.
    • Laptop model is MSI FX420.
    • Previous operating system before replacing the hard drive is Windows 7.
    • What I'm trying to do is install Windows 7.
    Problem - cannot install because after windows loads the files for installation, and just after the windows logo appears, the blue screen appears.

    Hello world

    Thanks for your replies. I've solved this problem and the solution is quite simple - installed Windows 8 instead of Windows 7. I don't know if it's my installation disc which is the problem (but was probably not) or the version of the OS is to be installed. But of course, it wasn't a problem of compatibility or functionality with my hard drive.
    My assumption, it seems that the installation process of Windows 8 is different from Windows 7 in a way that win 8 has been able to complete the installation successfully without displaying error then Win 7 displays a blue screen error just after loading of the installation files. Maybe it's trying to find old stuff from my old hard drive configuration? (Sorry no idea on this area in concrete).
    Good news is that my laptop now works on Windows 8 Pro! Hope that helps people out there with similar problem.
    Thank you!

    * EDIT * it says also no battery detected. even if she still has the icon.


    I should be able to help you (except the battery issue unless the chipset driver fixes that).

  • Problem installing Windows XP on the Satellite A200-1VF

    I'm trying to install Windows XP with SP2.
    I created a new installation of Window XP with nlite disc and included the Storage Manager to get access to the hard drive.

    I started with this new record of installations and allows to manage my hard drive.
    Then it is formatted and files have been copied to the hard drive. After the 1 st reboot. takes place.

    Windows XP logo appears logo disappears after a few seconds and it's time that the installation of 1 st screen.
    But instead, it appears a box with a red X and an error message "for the given process is not enough quotas for virtual storage or the pagefile" 2 seconds later, the system will reboot and restart the installation and gets the same message and so on.

    The system is already flashed with the BIOS V5.30 for XP.
    To continue installing XP any help is appreciated.

    Thanks Klaus


    just a quick question: is the recovery for Vista work? I mean, it sounds like a hardware problem, but usually if the machine worked well before, it must be another problem. The image that was created with nLite is maybe defective...
