Disable Found New Hardware Wizard

Is there a way to turn off the found new hardware wizard, so that windows will just automatically search its driver cache for good drivers when a hardware device is inserted, without asking for user input? I've been searching everywhere and haven't been able to find an answer. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Found New Hardware Wizard Detects Camera, But No Driver Found

I had the quickcam messenger webcam working just fine on my pc. Then the hard disk died, so i reinstalled the same os (windows xp pro) on a new hard disk. To install the quickcam messenger again, i downloaded and ran the current logitech installer (lws110.exe) from Only this time it failed. I've tried multiple times, carefully uninstalling the logitech driver and software each time and rebooting. I also tried the installer disc for the quckcam chat (which i also own), with the same result (plugging in the quickcam messenger). The installer gets to "step 4 of 4" (camera setup), without a hitch. "Congratulations "the installation and setup is complete! "Plug the device at any time to complete the installation and use your new quickcam"

At that point, i plug in the quickcam messenger, and windows xp detects it, as indicated by the bubble that appears above the task bar: "found new hardware camera"

Anyway, after displaying that bubble window, xp runs it own "found new hardware wizard". Whether i click cancel on the wizard, or run it (it fails to find the driver), or let it just sit there for 20 minutes, logitech's own installer never detects the camera. And the driver apparently never gets installed. I searched the logitech disc for a . Inf file that i could point the wizard to, but could not find anything that worked. I've checked for motherboard driver updates, but find nothing for any usb problem (and the usb port appears to be working just fine with everything else, anyway). I installed xp sp3, but that doesn't help either.

Found New Hardware Wizard On Start Up, Always

I bought and installed a hp 4255 all in one fax/printer/scanner etc some months back, it works fine. But a really annoying thing happens. Every time i start up i get a little pop-up box beside my system clock telling me "found new hardware: printer" then i get the "welcome to the found new hardware wizard" box. I have followed the instructions, inserted the installation cd etc. Then i get another small pop-up box beside my system clock telling me "a problem occurred during hardware installation and your device may not work properly etc"

I just ignore it now, the device itself works great, no probs but the same pop-ups every time i start up has become very annoying! I have un-installed/re-installed it totally several times and still the same. Is there a way to just switch off these pop-ups? Its driving me a bit nuts!

I also have another small problem. I put a usb 2. 0 card into the back of my 'puter a while ago as it only had usb 1. 1. This was mainly for my scanner (a stand alone, separate from the hp all in one) to make it run a bit faster, but if i plug in my scanner it tells me "found new hardware: usb device" then "found new hardware: your new hardware is installed and is ready to use" so far so good, but then i get "usb device not recognized: one of the usb devices attached to this computer has malfunctioned and windows does not recognise it. For assistance click on this message" i click on the message and i can see which port its plugged into but theres a message telling me "try re-connecting the device. If windows still does not recognize it, replace the device"

Well, the scanner works fine when plugged into my usb 1. 1. The funny thing is that other devices will work on the usb 2. 0 card, my mouse, keyboard and even the hp all in one! So dont know whats up with that.

Found New Hardware Wizard Every Start Up

I have a few usb peripherals i.e a music keyboard usb deck etc and whenever i unplug these and plug them back in or start up my pc from a turn off state the wizard appears again and again (when all devices are installed and working absolutely fine. ) It is not just one particular device that does this it is all and with all usb ports so i doubt i'm missing up to date drivers for everything, although i'm not connected to the internet (should/would this make a difference?

Found New Hardware Wizard Problems

I moved my pc and connected everything and couldn't use it because it wouldn't install the usb keyboard but instead it just sits there showing me the "found new hardware wizard". I had to go find a ps2 keyboard to install the usb mouse and keyb before i could do anything with the machine. Scenario: plug in a usb flash drive and it doesn't automatically install, but shows "found new hardware" same goes for cameras usb mouse etc etc etc. Also it always asks me to "okay" the "unsigned drivers" even tho i disabled the **** setting a couple of times and even did a reboot. Its as if the section in the registry that deals with the installation of new hardware is completely messed up or read only. Normally if you plug a well known device like a keyb/mouse/flash drive into a usb port you should just get that lil toastie pop up at the bottom right going "oh oh oh look i found something. Installing driver. There ya go it works now". Anyone know how i can get this working again?

How Can I Disable "found New Hardware" For Driver ?

I'm having a problem with sound drivers. I have hd realtek onboard sound and it works fine, but ati keeps trying to install hd audio drivers aswell and when they are installed it causes problems with certain games and my pc will restart. It's definately the ati hd audio, i sorted this out after hours of research for my error codes, event logs etc. But now every time i restart my pc i get the "found new hardware" wizard and it tries to reinstall these drivers, so i click cancel and have to go into device manager and disable it every time. Is there a way to stop this driver from trying to install permanently?

Found New Hardware - Not

My laptop has developed a new weird thing: every time i turn it on and it boots up, the "found new hardware" wizard automatically opens. (There is no new hardware installed!) It keeps telling me that it has detected an "hid compliant consumer control device. " If i go through the wizard, it detects an "hid new user input data filter (kb 911895)" and tries to download and install the driver for it from the microsoft website. In the middle of all this, it stops with a fatal error - "can't install - fatal error during installation. "

Despite this, my computer seems to be working fine - i hit the "cancel" button and go about my business. I even went into the device manager, found the "hid compliant consumer control device" and found that it is working properly. I actually have no idea exactly what a hid blah blah blah is, but having the wizard pop up every time i turn on my computer is beginning to bug me. Any suggestions?

Usb Drive ' Application Not Found ' In Mycomputer

I was using my usb drive, and i transferred some stuff onto it from my school computer. Then when i brought it home, and plugged into the usb socket, the autoplay thing didnt work, and when i went on to check it out in my computer folder, i could see my usb, but when i double clicked on it, it said: " f: application not found ", then, i tried my bro's usb, and the same problem occurs. I can access the usb thru right clicking and either clicking "open" or "explore". But i want to know why is this happening, is it a problem with the usb port, or my usb drive ? And can i fix this? And the wierd thing is, that the usb works perfectly on the school computers, but not on my home computer.

Usb Sometimes Does Not Recognize The Hardware Attach

I have an kt3 ultra- aru (ms-6380e) motherboard and i am running windows xp professional. I have a usb2 bracket with 4 ports and and a d bracket with 2 further usb ports. Everything seems to be connected properly, but the usb sometimes does not recognize the hardware i attach. The printer and scanner are ok, so is a usb bluetooth dongle, however, when i try to plug anything in the other spaces i keep getting messages about usb surges etc. I also get a message which tells me the printer could run alot faster using a usb2 connection. The printer is already in one of the usb sockets. I have had a look in the device manager and all the drivers look ok but i could be wrong. Can someone plaese tell me how i can test my usb ports and make sure that they are running at the correct speed (usb2). Also, why is it coming up as a surge warning when i connect my camera ?.

Usb Ports Problem With Software Or Hardware

My friends computer is a few years old and it has a msi k7n2 mb i believe (ms 6570) and she notes that her usb ports don't work anymore. I tried reinstalling the drivers, i looked at the connections in the hardware, i installed 2 pci usb port cards she had and nothing worked. Basically, whenever she starts up her computer, she right clicks my computer, goes to hardware and in device manager the usb controller hubs and the pci to usb hub or whatever it's called are both question marks. When i put a usb flash drive in the usb ports, the ports turn my sandisk drive orange for a moment and then it goes away (basically it recognizes something was plugged in but doesn't go any further than that). I don't see any icons saying new device added and i can't see my flash drive. What do you think is wrong with this computer? At first i thought it was just purely hardware related but i think it might be software related since the ports 'recognize' that something is being plugged in but it won't go further than that. I don't think the ports are fried but i think something needs to be done also. Any ideas?

Usb Works With Keyboard And Mouse But Won't Read Usb Stick

Hello guys, i've this problem since some time. My keyboard and mouse work properly but the system seems to fail in reading usb sticks. They do appear in my computer but when i access them it either says " f: is not accessible. Impossible to satisfy your demand because of peripheral error e/s ", or, it allows me to enter it but there are no files listed. The stick works ok in other machines and there are files on it. It also takes a long time for the system to see the stick. I did have some viruses but now the comp is clean as i ran all the programs suggested in networking&security section of this forum. Help!

Vista Can't Find Its Hardware Drivers, Most Usb Devices Won't Install

Last night everything was ok. After i'd cleaned the computer and plugged everything back in windows decides it can't find drivers for any of my usb devices (keyboard, mouse, camera, gamepad, joystick). When it finds them it says new hardware found. With 3 choices:

Locate and install driver
Ask me again later
Don't show this message again

So i click the first option, and it searches for drivers but. 'could not find driver software'. I then click 'check online for a solution' with no luck. These devices are so basic that the manufacturers don't supply drivers for the products; they should all be with the os. What can i do guys? I'm a keen photographer and not being able to upload my photos via the camera or card reader is a real issue for me. By the way the above process happens for all the usb hardware i have except the printer, usb flash drive, mouse and keyboard (luckily!)

Kvm Usb Mouse

I have a ps2kvm4 and i'm using a ps/2 keyboard, which works great. Even the usb keyboard works great when i use a usb to ps/2 adapter. However, i have a usb optical mouse (pretty standard, just two buttons and the wheel) and when using the ps/2 adapter i don't use of my mouse. The optical light is there, but there's just no use of the mouse on any of the three computers that i've got it hooked up to; which are winxp sp3 x86, fedora 7 x86, and a smoothwall firewall. The cheap belkin 2-port ps/2 kvm worked fine with the usb to ps/2 adapter, but the linksys seems to have a problem. Any thoughts at all?

Disable Charging On Hp Laptop

How do i disable my charging on a hp laptop? I mean how can i control my charging on a hp laptop? For example: if the battery is charged more than 60% disable charging and enable it for when it decreases to 40%. I can't remove my laptop's battery, because it may cause damage my laptop if ac power source gets off! Meanwhile, the best battery level for removing it, is about 60%. So if a software be able to disable the battery on 60% of its charge, then it's like that you've removed it!
