*SOLVED* Device not detected/ No driver installed for X-FI Fatal

OK!!!! the only reason I signed up here was to post that I have (for me) solved my problem.
Before I get into details this occurred on a fresh system with latest drivers for hardware used.
The problem was installing my X-Fi card on my 680i m/b (striker extreme).. when I would install the driver it would simply crash the computer and when it started up the hardware was not detected to used the software and the device manager said no driver installed.. I tried everything.. I installed the driver in safe mode (yay it worked without crashing) then I booted for windows only to have it blue screen for a second and restart... repeating the cycle.. so i reinstalled windows again... I tried installing the driver different ways in windows.. nothing worked... I gave up...
BUT!!!
today while i was at work I decided I would try one last thing.
this is what got it going. I have SLI 8800ultras that covered the PCI slot on the bottom of my board and I though I would try the card in this slot to see if it worked there... so I disabled SLI took out my bottom card put in the sound card in the bottom slot, installed the driver... It installed 00% no crash... even better it worked after the restart!!!... so then I had to test if it worked in the top slot so I powered down, moved it up to my top PCI slot and windows auto set the driver for it (as it was already installed) It worked in the top slot now... Finally I put in the second 8800 to make sure it worked with this slot in use... It still worked fine with SLI enabled. because I was unhappy with the mess I made installing drivers all the time as I did with the many crashes I decided to do a fresh install of windows making this card work from the start so here is what you need to do if you have a 680i board with SLI. this is exactly what i did with my fresh install.
install only one GPU card..
Put the X-FI in a different slot that isn't giving you problems
Install windows
Install service pack 2
install your chipset drivers
install sound card drivers
power down, change sound card to permanent slot
test - power down
put in the second GPU card
install GPU drivers
Good luck you all having this problem.. I hope my solution helps you.

I think I?got a similar?problem earlier today when I was messing around with?onboard audio?that I later removed and after unplugging a?USB headset.
Have you checked the device manager, is there any higlighted hardware that has a exclamation mark next to it.
I fixed the issue by simply uninstalling the WDM device with the exclamation mark and restarted.

  • [SOLVED] BIOS not detecting USB Drives after i installed Arch

    SOLVED: In BIOS under 'Advanced' disable 'Fast BIOS Mode'.
    Original post:
    Hi there!
    I'm fairly new to the arch (and linux) scene and just setup my Samsung 530U3B with a brand new installation of arch. Everything went fine and the system is running flawlessly. Almost.
    I just happend to notice that BIOS is not checking for USB drives anymore, it just somehow skips that part. If enter the boot selection, the bootable USB drive won't show up. Neither does it show up in BIOS setup. I tried to boot with the same USB drive that i used to install arch just yesterday, the live media does not boot - the drive doesn't even blink. The boot priority is set to usb drive first, the boot selection screen (hammering f10 during boot) doesn't give me any other option than to boot from the normal SSD. Also, prior to the arch installation (came with w7 installed) the BIOS screen would stay for about 2seconds and then proceed to boot - this doesn't happen anymore. When i press the power button greeted by the grub bootloader in about 1s.
    I tried 2 different usb drives, both with the arch iso (same that i used to install the currently running OS, downloaded yesterday). The drives also show up once my arch is booted (starting to blink just after i hit enter in grub). Also, both drives boot without a problem on my desktop computer.
    Anyone got any ideas?
    I don't really now what kinda of information would be helpful so i'm just dumping stuff i know:
    BIOS: Phoenix SecureCore Tiano Version 04XK
    Machine: Samsung 530U3B
    SSD: Samsung MZ7PC128HAFU-000
    ISO used to install (checksum ok): archlinux-2012.07.15-netinstall-dual.iso

    Welcome to the forum.
    If you just set the USB stick to be first in the boot order, the next option (from the list) takes its place the moment you unplug it. You need to set the BIOS to boot from your equivalent of "Removable Devices" first, "Internal Drives" second and "Optical Drives" third.
    The USB stick doesn't show up at all. I set the priority as follows:
    1. USB HDD
    2. USB FDD
    3. USB CD
    4. SATA CD
    5. SATA HDD
    6. NETWORK
    I used that same configuration to install arch. USB doesn't seem to initialize at all. Also, if i enter "usb" in the grub commandline, no devices are listed.
    Thanks!
    UPDATE:
    I just figured it out. In my BIOS under 'Advanced' the 'Fast BIOS Mode' was enabled, once i disabled it, everything went fine. I don't remember changing that option. Silly me.
    Sorry for your time

  • A connection to the deployment share could not be made - Networking device did not have a driver installed

    I have a couple of HP 8200 desktops that I think might have bad nics. When I PXE boot them and start my LiteTouch, I get a Wizard error that says
    A connection to the deployment share (\\mydpshare\share) could not be made. The following networking device did not have a driver installed
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1502&SUBSYS_1496103C&REV_04
    I have that driver in MDT and it works on other HP 8200s. Looking into the Wpeinit.log, it looks like the driver loads but maybe the nic is bad:

    Hi,
    According to your description, it should be Intel NIC driver problem. I have checked HP official website, there is new NIC driver released, please access to the link below to download the NIC driver for test:

  • Airport Extreme will not show USB drive installed Solved!

    Airport Extreme will not show USB drive installed Solved... At least for me!
    Here's what I had to do to make it work with the newest 7.3.1 firmware.
    Ready for this? No Joke Really!
    1. Connect your USB drive to the Airport Extreme.
    2. Turn it on.
    3. Open the Airport Utility.
    4. Go to Manual Setup.
    5. Choose Disks and File Sharing.
    Yep, we are going to set file sharing before we even see the disk we want to share!
    You (I) had to set File Sharing on and Share Disks over Ethernet checked as well as set the Work Group (In my case). THEN restart the Airport Extreme.
    After it re-started... My USB Drive was now present and ready for use.
    I also dis-allowed Guest access. I re-started ALL computers in my network, both Windows and MAC. The USB drive held and works GREAT!
    I know... Most of you thought this was a joke, It's not!
    I tried everything to get the USB drive to work and failed every time just like most other people. Doing it this way worked like a charm.
    Go Figure huh!
    Hope this helps someone with this issue.

  • I purchased the Logitech F310 game controller for my 2011 MacBook Pro. How do I get the driver installed for it. The Disk that came with the controller is a mini disk and will not insert into my laptop.

    I purchased the Logitech F310 game controller for my 2011 MacBook Pro. How do I get the driver installed for it. The Disk that came with the controller is a mini disk and will not insert into my laptop.

    May not make a difference anyway. The Logitech support site does not show drivers for Mac OS for the F310:
    http://www.logitech.com/en-us/support/gamepad-f310?crid=411
    I'd contact their support to find out if there is a Mac driver available, and if they can either give you a web link to get it, e-mail you the software, or snail-mail you a standard-size disk with the drivers.

  • Surface Pro 3 / "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter"

    Hi all,
    I've been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926) on my Surface Pro 3 successfully
    since January. Unfortunately, I lost all internet connectivity today.
    The problem started when I noticed the type cover wasn't working (pressing keys on the type
    cover wasn't registering any typing on my screen) and my USB mouse wasn't working either. I tried removing and reattaching the type keyboard but this didn't fix the issue. I had to use the accessibility on-screen keyboard to sign into Windows (thankfully touch
    was still working). Once I signed in, I still didn't have typing or cursor ability, so I decided to restart the computer.
    Then it got worse. I noticed the Surface Pro 3 was stuck on "restarting" and wouldn't
    actually restart. Since it wasn't responding, I held down the power button for about 10 seconds until it turned off. When I turned it back on, the type cover and mouse started working again.
    Unfortunately, this is when the WIFI problems began. I had WIFI for a few seconds, and then
    I lost internet. I disconnected/reconnected but there was a yellow triangle telling me there was some sort of problem. So I restarted the Surface Pro 3.
    When it came back on, there were suddenly NO connections available at all. Opening the "Network
    & Internet" settings page gave me the message "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter". And here I am, without internet on my Surface Pro 3, borrowing my friend's computer so I can type this message (he is also running
    Windows 10 build 9926 on his laptop and is able to connect to my WIFI with no problems, whereas my Surface Pro 3 cannot even detect any networks). I have not dropped or damaged the SP3 in any way, and there have been no storms or power outages or anything
    of that sort. Any ideas what could have happened to the WIFI on my Surface Pro 3?
    Thanks for your help...
    Ethan

    Hi Ethan,
    Currently, there are a few compatibility issue between the current hardware and Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926 build), this is mostly related to driver compatibility issue.
    I suggest you download the latest network adapter driver package to install, when it is finished, check if it appears under Device Manager.
    Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro firmware and driver packs
    https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/networking-and-connectivity/install-wireless-drivers
    You can check if you can install the latest firmware package for your device.
    Here is an article to talk about such things:

  • Audio device not detected in control panels

    +Audio device not detected in control panelsa I've been using my X-Fi Platinum with Windows 7 64-bit fine for around a month now. Recently I encountered a problem where I couldn't record any sound including talking on Teamspeak. I decided to reinstall the drivers, so I cleaned them out with a driver cleaner tool, and reinstalled. Everything works fine again, but none of the applications will work anymore. They all give an error message about not being able to detect the device. This includes AutoUpdate, Creative Audio Control Panel, and Creative Console Launcher. The card appears to be working correctly everywhere else: Device manager, teamspeak works fine now, windows recorder, guitar rig (guitar amp emulator), dx diag, all working well.
    I also tried installing Daniel_K's driver pack to no avail.
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Glorfindel

    /Hi Glorfindel,
    Did?you?reinstall the applications from the installation cd?
    Download and install the latest applications from our support site to see if it helps, click on the link and select your product. Note that some of the applications are not available on Windows 7.

  • New Oracleasm Libraries not detecting ASM drives consistently

    Has anyone run into problems with the new Oracle ASMLib not detecting ASM drives on load and on scandisks commands? My /etc/sysconfig/oracleasm is the standard defaults that I used with the previous version of ASMLib, i.e. I do not specify the exclude or scanorder.
    I have noticed that if I run scandisk while specifying the LUN in question, then ASMLib will detect the drive properly. I have also noticed that if I run the "scandisks" multiple times (100's), then it will at times find the proper ASM disks. I have played with various settings in the /etc/sysconfig/oracleasm file as well with no luck on getting consistent ASMLib detection.
    The workaround I have for now is to put a "oracleasm scandisks /dev/sd*1" into my /etc/rc.d/rc.local file.
    System is HP BL460c running Red Hat 5.2 with QLogic Driver version 8.01.07.25-fo

    Sergio,
    My issue is with the 2.0.5 Version of ASMLib. Previously, I was using oracleasm-2.6.18-92.el5-2.0.4-1.el5.x86_64.rpm. Please see the first section of the screen output for the complete list or Oracleasm installed rpms (latest from OTN). Also, this node was after an immediate OS build with no databases or other activity being done on the node while I attempt to scandisks. I can't imagine that I have drives being repeatedly open/closed.
    I do have the following in my /var/log/oracleasm file, but the running of oracleasm was done by the root user and the permissions on the devices have not really changed between 2.0.5 and the older 2.0.4 that I have been using.

    Gx-fi fatalty device not detected when running speaker selection wizard? ?
    System is a custom build, based off an ASUS A8N-SLI Premium, with two GTX7800 display cards. in a SLI configuration
    Fresh installation fo Windows XP Profesional with SP3 slipstreamed.
    Origional CD fails to detect the card, claiming a supported device is not present.
    This card has worked prevously, and is verified as fully functional in windows Vista. ?
    Please note Windows Vista can not be used.
    I have tried about 30 different versions of the drivers (each on a clean installation) and used both clean and dirty boots, and nothing is working.
    Before anyone points me at other threads in this forum, please note i have been scouring this forum for the past week trying every sugestion there is, and I have raised a ticket with Creative (who despite the prommise of a 2 day responce, have yet to respond)
    I have tired multiple versions of the NForce drivers, NVidia display drivers, Creative Drivers, Bios updates, Chipset hacks and more.
    does anyone hav a sugestion that is not already posted on this forum.

    Tried it on one of the spare PC's in the house earlier (Nforce 2 based) - still no recognition of the card whatsoever, it's as if it doesn't exist.
    I'm guessing that the card is pretty much toasted eh?

  • M-audio device not detected

    I keep getting this message no matter what I do. Every time I try to op the M-audio firewire software, PT m-powered 7, I always get that message. "m-audio device not detected on this mac". I can't figure it out.

    Is the device turned on? The blue light should be solid blue (not flashing).
    If it never goes solid blue, try a different cable, try using the adapter power (not bus power). Run System Profiler and check that your firewire bus does not say "No information found". Make sure you have the latest drivers installed. Is the audio device shown in the System Preferences -> Sound drivers? Is the audio device one of the few compatible ones with PT M-Powered?
    Never hot plug the firewire cable, especially if any device is bus powered.
    See where that lot gets you...
