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.

Refer to these discussions because many more excellent advice however don't forget to check your antivirus
programs, the main drivers and BIOS update and also solve the problems with the cleanboot method

  • Satellite 4080 freezes during use. Event ID 5 - port i/o address not

    I have a Satellite 4080 running windows xp sp2 makes it reasonably well. It is used only for basic word processing and Office Automation. Laptop freezes during use and should be set out & back again. In case the Viewer is an event id number 5 the ACPI BIOS attempts to write an unauthorized i/o port address. This is due to the problem with the freezing of the laptop? Microsoft as useful suggest that never contact the editor of the BIOS on possibly updating the BIOS. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Hello, Robert

    The update of the BIOS you can find on but check it please the MORE INFORMATION on the right side.

    I don't know if this will help solve the problem, but you can try. Please be careful with the BIOS update and read the instructions first.

  • How can I stop my computer freezes during disk defragment?

    When you try to run Disk Defragmenter, my pc freezes when defragmentation is 3%, on the c:\windows\system32\wucltui.dll.MUI file. I downloaded the software Microsoft Fix It, which stopped the computer freezes during the compression of the files old during a cleaning of the drive ("compress old files" isn't even an option more when you do a disk cleanup). The problem was significantly higher than earlier, gel when there are too many programs running. I did a lot of work on it, trying to return to normal, and although he is capable of multi - load again once, I still can't free space with the Disk Defrag. I tried almost everything... boot in safe mode and the closure of all firewalls and updates, I tried to disable restoring the system and running defragmentation again. I ran 'chkdsk' nothing works. I downloaded the registry cleaners, cleaned manually files unnecessary and much more. I don't know what more can be done, but I need the defrag to work. PLEASE HELP ME!

    I just discovered this problem on my HP Compaq husbands, don't know where it comes from! When I analyse it says there is no need to be defraged, and I'm not about to reinstall XP! He has 65% of free space, the only thing it's really about that is to play poker on NLOP and watching junk sports! NLOP works with microphone$ .net framework and they have just updated their site, could it have caused the problem?

    Can someone please provide a better answer?

    I just lost my entire C: drive on my desk and had to take, now it's and drive E:! Something to do with "XP Media Center Edition" that he made, personally I think it's inept technology who didn't know what he was doing because he forgot to install my Audio drivers and he's happy that I had saved some files is from another, so I installed them myself!

    1. the present proceedings is a diagnostic test. It doesn't change anything for the better or worse and therefore, by itself, will not solve the problem. But with the help of the results of the tests, the solution may take a few minutes, instead of hours or days.

    The test works on OS X 10.7 ("Lion") and later versions. I do not recommend running it on older versions of Mac OS X. It will do no harm, but it will not do not much good.

    Do not be put off by the complexity of these instructions. The process is much less complicated than the description. You make the tasks more complicated with the computer all the time.

    2. If you do not already have a current backup, please back up all the data before doing anything else. The backup is needed on the general principle, not because of what anyone in the test procedure. Backup is always a must, and when you encounter any kind of problems with the computer, you can be more than the usual loss of data, if you follow these instructions or risk not.

    There are ways to back up a computer that is not fully functional. Ask if you need advice.

    3 here is instructions to run a UNIX shell script, a type of program. As I wrote above, it doesn't change anything. It does not send or receive data over the network. There is no to generate a report on the State of the computer human readable. This report goes nowhere unless you choose to share it. If you prefer, you can act on it yourself without disclosing the contents for me or someone else.

    You should ask yourself if you can believe me, and if it is safe to run a program at the request of a foreign national. In general, no, he's not sure, and I encourage it.

    In this case, however, there are ways for you to decide if the program is safe without having to trust me. First of all, you can read it. Unlike an application that download you and click to start, it is transparent, so any person with the required competence can check what it does.

    You may not be able to understand the script yourself. But variations of it have been posted on this site of thousands of times over a period of years. The site is hosted by Apple, which does not allow it to be used to distribute harmful software. One of the million registered users to have read the script and set off the alarm if it was dangerous. Then I wouldn't be here now, and you would not be reading this message. See, e.g., this discussion.

    Another indication that the test is safe in this threadand this onecan be found, for example, where the comment in which I suggested it was recommended by one of the specialists of the communityApple, as explained here.

    However, if you cannot satisfy yourself that these instructions are safe, do not follow them. Ask other solutions.

    4. here is a general summary of what you need to do, if you decide to go forward:

    ☞ Copy a particular line of text to the Clipboard.

    ☞ Paste into the window to another application.

    ☞ Wait for the test to run. It usually takes a few minutes.

    ☞ Stick the results, which will be copied automatically, in a response on this page.

    These are not specific instructions; just a glimpse. The details are in parts 7 and 8 of this comment. The sequence is: copy, paste, wait and paste it again. You don't need to copy a second time.

    5. try to test in conditions that replicate the problem, to the extent possible. For example, if the computer is slow intermittently, run the test during a downturn.

    You may have started up in safe mode. If the system is now in safe mode and works pretty well in normal mode to test run, restart as usual before running it. If you can test only in safe mode, this.

    6. If you have more than one user and a user is affected by the problem, and the user is not an administrator, and then run the test twice: once under the affected user and one administrator. The results can be different. The user that is created automatically on a new computer, when you start it for the first time is an administrator. If you are unable to log in as an administrator, verify that the user concerned. More personal Mac have only one user, and in this case this section does not apply. Don't log in as root.

    7 load the linked web page (the site "Pastebin.") Press the combination of keys command + A to select all the text, then copy it to the Clipboard by pressing command-C.

    8. start the Terminal application integrated in one of the following ways:

    ☞ Enter the first letters of his name in a Spotlight search. Select from the results (it should be at the top).

    ☞ In the Finder, select go utilities ▹ of menu bar or press the combination of keys shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.

    ☞ Open LaunchPad and start typing the name.

    Click anywhere in the Terminal window to activate it. Paste from the Clipboard into the window by pressing Command + V, then press return. The text that you pasted should disappear immediately.

    9. If you logged in as an administrator, you will be prompted for your login password. Nothing displayed when you type. You won't see the usual points instead of the characters typed. Make sure that caps lock is turned off. Type carefully, and then press return. You can get a warning to be careful. If you make three unsuccessful attempts to enter the password, the test is still running, but it will produce less information. If you do not know the password, or if you prefer not to enter, just press back three times at the password prompt. Yet once again, the script will run.

    If the test takes much longer that usual to run because the computer is very slow, you can be prompted for your password a second time. The permission you grant by entering it will expire automatically after five minutes.

    If you are not logged as an administrator, you will be prompted for a password. The test will run. It just will not do anything that requires administrator privileges.

    10. the test may take a few minutes to run, depending on the number of files you have and the speed of the computer. A computer that is abnormally slow may take more time to run the test. During execution, a series of lines is displayed in the Terminal window like this:

        Test started
            Part 1 of 4 done at: … sec        …        Part 4 of 4 done at: … sec
        The test results are on the Clipboard.
        Please close this window.

    The intervals between the parties will not be exactly the same, but they give an approximate indication of progress.

    Wait for the final message "Please close this window" appears. If you don't see it in about 15 minutes, the test probably won't be all within a reasonable time. In this case, press the Ctrl + C key combination or the point command to stop it. Then go to the next step. You will have incomplete results, but still something. If you close the window of the Terminal, while the test is still running, the partial results will not be saved and you have to start over.

    11. when the test is completed, or if you have stopped it because it was taking too long, leaving the Terminal. The results have been saved to the Clipboard automatically. They do not appear in the Terminal window. Please do not copy from there. All you have to do is start a response to this comment and then paste it again by pressing Command-V.

    At the top of the results, there will be a line that begins with the words «Start time.» If you do not see that, but rather to see a mass of gibberish, you wait for the message "close this window". Please wait and try again.

    If personal information, such as your name or e-mail address, appear in the results, make anonymous before posting. Usually it will be not necessary.

    12. in the validation of the results, you see an error message on the web page: "you have included content in your post that is not allowed", or "the message contains invalid characters." It's a bug in the software which manages this website. Thanks for posting the results of the tests on Pastebin, then post here a link to the page you created.

    If you have an account on Pastebin, please do not select private in exposure menu to paste on the page, because no one else that you will be able to see it.

    13. This is a public forum and others can give you advice based on the results of the test. They speak for themselves, not for me. The test itself is harmless, but what're told you to do maybe not. For others who choose to run it, I do not recommend that you view the results of test on this Web site unless I ask.

    14. the related UNIX shell script is a notice of copyright. ASC readers can copy for their personal use. The whole nor any part can be redistributed.

  • Computer freezes during the update of the BIOS

    I have a hp pavilion dv5-1170ei and he had problems with the audio and the quick launch buttons after the upgrade to Windows 7. I decided to update the bios, because it was the only thing that I had not updated. Now, the computer is frozen with the update of the BIOS still running. I had the same problem with a dv5-1199ei and it worked fine after upgrading the BIOS. Either way, I upgraded from Vista Home premium to Win 7 Ultimate.

    I don't know what to do.


    I had the same problem of problem freezing the computer during BIOS update. I have a HP Pavilion DV5 laptop 1126ee. When I update the bios, I don't notice her latest version of the bios installed on my system. I tried several ways of the various positions in the HP support forum. But I couldn't boot my system. Finally I could start my system. find the steps I did: -.

    I first create a crisis recovery HP 2 GB USB key

    downloaded Bios F.16A file on the HP (for HP DV5 1126ee) support site

    Then copied 3602F16. FD AND 3603F16. FD TO USB

    and renamed its copy to 3602.BIN, 3603.BIN, 3602.WPH, 3603.WPH, 3602F16. BIN, 3603F16. BIN. All files in the same USB BIOS.

    Then I unplugged the power and removed the battery.

    Insert USB drive into the system, Hold Windows + B button, plugged in the power and turned on the laptop. When the USB key is charge flashing I took out the key combination. Then I heard a unique single beep (before checking time is 2 + 1 beep and continuous beep). After the shutdown of the system 2-3 minutes automatically. Then I removed the USB and turn on the system. Now my system works perfectly.

    With our thanks,


  • Satellite P500-153 - computer freezes during absence after - min


    3 months now, I bought a new Satellite P500-153. My problem is that the computer very often been completely freeze after 30 to 60 minutes when I'm not working on it. The only possibility is to press the power button and restart. Last Sunday, it freezes also for the first time, when I'm working on the computer.
    All recommended updates are performed.

    Anyone has the same problem?
    Do - does anyone know why or what I can do?

    I hope someone can help me.

    Thanks in advance!


    Hey mate,

    What additional software you have installed?
    Have you updated to the drivers and what OS you have installed?

    In this case, it's really hard to say what is the cause, so you should test with factory settings and see what happens.

  • (Redirected) Computer beeps during use. Maybe high disk or the use of the CPU usage?

    New here and new to Dell computers. 1st stop, I have a Dell XPS 13 "i7 6560u 16 GB and SSD 512. When using the computer, I get a series of 2 beeps. It seems to be related to the high use of the disc or the CPU usage. I guess my question is possible to put these notifications for a longer delay or at least decrease the volume of the beeps. I am aware that when I use one of my CSD programs to open a browser and looking for an answer to the question about what there will be times where I could get high uses a of these, that's all just annoying and not really want to turn them off entirely (option I would) I would delay having more time this will happen to until I get through this ,

    I thank you,

  • Firefox has started to freeze on the opening and hangs / freezes frequently during use.

    Firefox has begun to open very slowly [very]!, as well as to crashing and freezing during use. What's happening on all my three machines, two running Win 7 and the other win 8.
    I tried refreshing and disabling, but to no avail hardware acceleration.

  • XP freeze during periods of rest during use

    Hi I have a problem with my pc, I'm not sure if it's the pc or my software, as follows: if I start my pc and then not use it for about 10 minutes, he invariably freezes requiring a reboot. This can also occur during use, which can be a pain if things are not registered, I have now all all save a few minutes. I use XP Professional and office 2003, plus I have Spysweeper (which can be a real pain, most of the time) and Norton 360. Everything is up-to-date and I ran several defrags and cleans registry, but does not, now I lose what little hair I left, I hope someone can help with this.

    Thank you.

    I certainly didn't know that you are infected with malware, but you
    run some of the poorest security software available, so I
    certainly suspected.

    For an anti-virus program, I recommend eSet NOD32, if you're ready
    to pay for it. If you want a free anti-virus, I recommend one of the
    three of the following:
    Microsoft Security Essentials
    You also need anti-spyware software. I recommend that you download and
    (both freeware) to install MalwareBytes AntiMalware and

    Everything is up-to-date and I ran several defrags


    and cleans up registry

    Ugh! Do not do this!

    Registry cleaning programs are all snake oil. Cleaning of the
    registration is not necessary and is dangerous. Let alone register and
    do not use any registry cleaner. Despite what many people think, and
    What software record cleaning suppliers are trying to convince you,
    have unused registry entries is not really make you hurt.
    The risk of a serious problem caused by a registry cleaner by mistake
    delete an entry you need is much greater than any potential benefit
    It can have.

    And also

    Let me stress that neither me nor anyone else who warns the
    use of registry cleaners never said that they always cause
    problems. If they have always caused problems, they would disappear from
    the market almost immediately. Many people have used a registry
    cleaner and never had a problem with it.

    The problem with a registry cleaner is that it carries with it
    the risk of a significant problem. And since there is no
    benefits of using a registry cleaner, running that risk is a very bad
    good deal.

  • 2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use. I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    2-3 days after the expiry of my warranty of one year, my computer turns off suddenly during use.  I rebooted, but it stopped again.

    The model is that the computer runs for 15-30 minutes, then suddenly stops, the system reboots, runs for 2-3 minutes, stops, restarts, spans less than a minute, stops, restarts, stop after a few seconds, etc., and at that time there I give until the next day when I repeat the same cycle all over.    I have Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit and it is a model of Dell Inspiron 518.  There is no error message but a beep at startup upward.  I ran Windows repair program 'Start' who did a restore without success.  The problem occurs even in Safe Mode.

    Does anyone have a guess as to what is the diagnosis?  Thank you.


    Could be hardware or even heat and ventilation the related. Try using a small fan to increase ventilation. When a PC
    Remove ALL power and reinstall the memory, all cards and cables (do just not shake - remove and replace-)
    cables on both ends where possible).

    As it does in Mode safe so you probably need technical support in a real store of the computer - no Peeks/leeks at BestBuy or other large shopping areas. Very difficult to solve if it does not remain under tension.
    It remains under tension if you start from the disc of Vista?


    Look in the Event Viewer to see if something is reported on these reboots.

    Also this, so you can see the probable bluescreens.

    Windows Vista restarts automatically if your computer encounters an error that requires him to plant.


    Here are a few ways to possibly fix the blue screen issue. If you could give the info from the blue screen that would be
    Help. Such as ITC and 4 others entered at the bottom left. And any other information such as STOP error
    codes and info like IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL or PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA and similar messages.

    As examples:

    BCCode: 116
    BCP1: 87BC9510
    BCP2: 8C013D80
    BCP3: 00000000
    BCP4: 00000002

    or in this format:

    Stop: 0 x 00000000 (oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxoooooooo oxooooooooo)
    Tcpip.sys - address blocking 0 x 0 00000000 000000000 DateStamp 0 x 000000000

    It is an excellent tool for displaying the blue screen error information

    BlueScreenView scans all your minidump files created during 'blue screen of death' crashes, and displays the
    information on all accidents of a table - free

    BlueScreens many are caused by old or damaged drivers, video drivers in particular, but there are other causes.

    You can follow these steps in the Safe Mode if necessary or the command prompt Vista DVD or Options of recovery if your
    system installed by the manufacturer.

    This tells you how to access the System Recovery Options and/or a Vista DVD

    You can try a system restore to a point before the problem started when one exists.

  • Computer freezes completely during the game


    I always noticed when you try to run a computer games that my computer going for a reason completely freeze. I noticed this happen on Age of Empires III and Dawn of War II and also it happened on World of Warcraft. This is exactly what is happening:

    When I start the game (Dawn of War II for example) - it will take care of apparently very well, but then when I start trying to do things (until I connect even on and all the campaign mode) computer freezing suddenly completely, even if I'm still able to move the mouse, I'm unable to click on anything whatsoever or even escape on my desk which leads me to the conclusion that maybe my computer entire freezes and not just the game it's self. Sometimes, however, the sound of music from the game freezes as suddenly and will loop the sound and then then the computer hangs while the game is running, however most often, the computer freezes and the sound at the same time. I'm honestly at a loss on how to solve this problem and I bought Dawn of War II, anxious to play, to do then. I am extremely frustrated.

    Here are some features of the computer:

    Windows Vista Home Premium (32 bit)
    Service Pack 2
    AMD Athlon (TM) 8450 Triple-Core processor 2.10 GHz
    3G RAM
    Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce 8200
    Chipset: GeForce 9200

    Any help would be greatly appreciated

    Hello Joshuarrr,

    Thanks for the reply.

    Ideally, updates do not cause the version of the driver to change on your computer. If the driver updates are change the version of your video card, then the problem could be related to NVidia and I suggest that you contact NVidia support in this regard. Here is a link I found his support page:

    I hope this information helps.

    One alternative is to reinstall windows 7 with discs or install windows 10 as an alternative.

    Hello @zoboomafoo,

    Thank you for all the information!

    What have been the results of physical tests?  If all the past, then it seems that you encounter problems with the operating system.  If the problem is actually related to the operating system, then by reinstalling Windows will help you solve it.  This should help to address issues with malware.  Upgrade to Windows 10 is an option, however, you don't have full support of drivers.  I hope this helps.

    Kind regards!

    Original title: what is the problem?

    If the computer stops himself who suggested the failure of the system.

    You gave us a general indication of the nature of the problem but the specific error reports are a much easier solution.

    When a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) the system failure occurs, for most users, there not enough time to fully record what he says. the exact text is important for anyone trying to diagnose what is wrong. You can save time when the error occurs then by following the procedure described below.

    If you already did it disable the auto reboot system error. This should help by allowing the time to write the code to Stop error and related information correctly. Do right click on the icon my computer on the desktop and select Properties, advanced, startup and recovery, system failure and uncheck the box before automatically restarting. Re-do not enable automatic restart in the event of system failure after obtaining this information, this setting is the best left to not allow an automatic restart.

    If the failure occurs during the initialization of the computer, you need to try a different approach. You can access the Advanced Options Menu of Windows on multiple computers by constantly pressing the F8 (key) key when starting and selecting the option - disable automatic restart in case of system error. This method is not always easy to use because it may be difficult to press the F8 key at the right time. Try again if it doesn't work the first time. On some computers, a different key must be used.

    Hope this helps, Gerry Cornell
