USB Drivers

INTRODUCTION:
Most USB devices drivers automatically installed after you plug in on you PC. Most of use call it "Plug and Play". For example if you plug a USB mouse into your USB port windows automatically searching and install the appropriate driver. You will see a dialog box like this:

But not all USB devices recognize by windows, you need to install the driver first before using it.


STEP HOW TO INSTALL USB DRIVERS.

1. First identify what is your device model number/type name. For example you are using Verizon broadband modem UM150.
2. Go to the official download page and download the correct driver that match your USB device model.
3. Install it and allow few minutes for windows to fully updates and identify all components for the USB.

Certain USB devices come with firmware CD and you just need to install it on your system.


USB DRIVERS FOR USB FLASH DRIVE AND EXTERNAL STORAGE

Windows already have the generic drivers for USB FLASH DRIVE and MEMORY CARD. Normally it is called "Mass Storage Device", by default all windows operating system have this driver in thier system, if not you can get it from Microsoft site here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318812

This apply for most external device such as:
    external magnetic hard drives
    external optical drives, including CD and DVD reader and writer drives
    portable flash memory devices
    solid-state drives
    adapters bridging between standard flash memory cards and USB connections
    digital cameras
    digital audio players and portable media players
    card readers
    PDAs
    mobile phones

For memory card if you get an error "Disk Management Console View is not Up to Date". I already write a post to solve the problems in details here. http://laptop-driver.blogspot.com/2010/12/disk-management-console-view-is-not-up.html

WHAT IF THERE ARE NO DRIVERS OR FIRMWARE AVAILABLE.

1. Try to plug the USB device into other USB port.
2. If the problem persist, open device manager and expand the USB Root Hub
3. You will see unknown device or any device marked with yellow.
4. Right click on it and select Uninstall. Reboot your computer.
5. Open device manager again and right click on of the any USB root hub list and select scan for hardware change.

USB SUDDENLY STOP WORKING

1. Turn off your computer.
2. Deatch power chord or power supply.
3. Remove battery (for laptop)
4. Open your computer and plug the USB device.

Sometimes when the USB is too hot and too busy windows will stop the USB device to prevent from system instability. I already experience this with few device from HUAWEI which require me to unplug and replug every time it is not responsive. Later on i solved the problem buy put a small fan near the USB device to keep the temperature low.


ADI 1981B Windows 7 Drivers

ADI 1981B also know as Soundmax audio or also AC97 audio drivers. This device used mostly during windows XP era and start to slow down after vista was released. Later on after Windows 7 and Windows 8 arrival we can see that Realtek and IDT High Definition Audio conquer the audio device component in most laptops and desktop board

Windows 7 Drivers:
There are several ways to install ADI Soundmax drivers in windows 7.

1. Latest driver from Realtek (realtek AC'97 is compatible with Soundmax AC'97).
Go to www.realtek.com.tw .  Select Downloads - AC'97 Audio Codecs Software - Accept the terms and agreement and select Vista/Win7 (32/64 bits) Driver only (ZIP file). Download the file, extract it and run setup to install.

2. Use your original windows XP and Windows Vista Drivers.

Windows Vista drivers for windows 7 : You just need to download your original windows vista drivers, set the compatibility for windows vita first before installing the drivers. To learn how to set the compatibility mode you can read here.

Windows XP driver : You need to install it manually using device manager. You can read the example form my post here where i wrote down details instruction to install it on HP DV4000 model.

3. The last is to mod the inf file, this is advance method but not too complicated. I write a details instruction on this method to install conexant audio and the method can be applied to install ADI audio. You can read it here.

4. Here is several driver released for windows 7:

Driver Power State failure Windows 8

Either windows 8 or windows 8.1, some of you may experience this error (BSOD). There are different things that can cause this error. Some of you may try to change the power options but the problem persist. There are easier way to identify the culprit and what needs to be done to solve the problem.

1. Look at the dump file, example :

>[ 16, 2]   0 e1 ffffe000009dd050 00000000 fffff8027e988fa0-ffffe00001187800 Success Error Cancel pending
          Unable to load image \SystemRoot\System32\drivers\iaStorA.sys, Win32 error 0n2
*** WARNING: Unable to verify timestamp for iaStorA.sys
*** ERROR: Module load completed but symbols could not be loaded for iaStorA.sys
 \Driver\iaStorA    nt!PopRequestCompletion


The error shows " iaStorA.sys" which refer to storage driver. For intel model, normally you will have intel matrix storage manager installed in your system. Uninstalling this driver will resolve the issue.

2. New Updates/Upgrades or Old Drivers:
If you updates you drivers or installed or driver version for your windows 8. This actions could be the factor. Try to uninstall the updates or try to use the latest driver available.

A well known issue is for nvidia users and you can solve this problem by using nvidia tools on their website: www.nvidia.com.

For HP/Compaq user, most of the time your wireless mouse and unifying receiver is the problem. You need to remove them to solve the problems.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1350 Windows 7 Drivers

INSTALLING USING WINDOWS UPDATE.
Base on my experience installing windows 7 on Acer Aspire 4920G which use ATI Radeon X1350. Windows automatically install the drivers along windows 7 installation. After check for windows updates, windows also have a new updates for the cards and it is more stable.

INSTALLING USING ATI MOBILITY MODDER.
You can also use ati mobility modder which is available at http://www.hardwareheaven.com/modtool.php .  I have a very long history with this site and it is one of the best site to get drivers or updates which is not available neither on manufacture nor official support site.

TESTING DRIVERS.
For performance, I myself love to test with different driver version. You can try Original vista drivers for example for HP 531use sp40783.exe.
To install you need to extract the driver and set the setup compatibility to windows vista. You can also install manually using device manager. I have a good result installing vista drivers for V3000 model compare using the latest drivers form nvidia.
