  • 1. USB Browser Mouse driver error solution
    Solution: When the problem occurs (faulty or non-installation for generic USB mice), leave it as it is and go to 'Control Panel', go to 'System and Maintenance' and then 'Device Manager', you should see an 'unidentified device'. Right click (using your finger pad) and select 'update driver', select earch your own computer select the tick box for 'compatible devices', select 'HID-compatible mouse' [MS generic] and the device will immediately start to work. Then... When working, connect to the internet and go back to Device Manager (if you want to sort out the USB Browser Mouse problem completely) and under 'Mice and other pointing devices' you will see your newly installed HID compliant mouse, right click again and select 'update driver', this time it will search online and re-install a non-faulty 'USB Browser Mouse' driver? (one which somehow works this time) and it will then work well - or just leave it with the 'HID-compatible mouse' driver (works just as well - 'HID' just being the standard for compliant USB 'Human Interface Devices' / HID). Best regards,

  • 3. Microsoft fingerprint reader X64 drivers
    I have been reading many threads with reguards to the Microsoft Fingerprint reader that is marketed by Microsoft. The drivers are not currently available for x64. If the drivers are not going to be made for this product then Microsoft needs to make a statement that they are not going to support the product any further. There are lots of people that have contacted you about the product and have gotten the run around about wether or not you will support this product under the 64 bit environment. If you are going to create a product like Vista and Windows XP with 64 bit options then you should support your products like the fingerprint reader under these environments. I know that the answers that others have recieved from Microsoft have varied in the responses, I.E. yes there is work being done on the developement of the drivers and some that say no work is being done to support the device under the 64 bit environment. My question is simply this. Is there any posibility of a 64 bit driver for the Microsoft Fingerprint Reader?

  • 5. Bluetooth Keyboard & Mouse
    I have Vista Ultimate x32. I just bought a few days ago Microsoft Wireless Entertainment Keyboard & Mouse 7000. Everything works fine for a few days and then suddenly both Keyboard & Mouse stop working after reboot, restart or weak up from sleep. To make them works again, I have to "pair" them again, but unfortunately, same things happens again after reboot or weak up from sleep. Thank you for helping me.

Haven't heard of much yet.  SoundMax onboard audio (ASUS P5B) works with no 
problem  Spent sever days with a Creative Fatal1ty pro and got nothing but 
muffled sound out of 2.1 analog speakers.

2.Does anyone know how to get a sound card to work in Vista

I have Vista business on an Asus P5nSLI board P4d 2.8 and two gig or ram. 
Does anyone know how to make a sound card work. I have tried the onboard 
card and a creative audigy card and both fail. When playing an mp3, the 
sound seems to "max out" as if you turned the volume up too high and it 
could not handle the load. I have tried the latest drivers for both cards 
and nothing seems to work. Every search on the internet refers back to some 
vista release candidate and none of those solutions work. Does anyone know 
where to go from here? Any web sights that would be helpful would be 

I cannot be the only one with this problem.

Windows XP SP3 RC v3264 Does NOT Support High Definition Audio
in Guides, Software at 10:14 
  I posted this entry on 01/01/2008 and there are many who're still having the 
  same problem. After some googling, I've added some updates below. Hope they 
  help. Good luck! 

In Windows XP, to add support for High Definition Audio, we have to install the 
Universal Audio Architecture (UAA) High Definition Audio class driver. This is 
either the KB835221 (for SP1) or the newer KB888111 (for SP1 or SP2).

If you've already tried your hands installing the Windows XP SP3 RC v3264 and 
you have a High Definition Audio device on your computer, I bet you must be 
having problem with the audio drivers as am I. When you try installing the 
KB888111 which works for SP1 and SP2, it will not work for SP3, at least for the 
current SP3 RC v3264 and you will be prompted with a message saying that the 
current service pack installed is newer than the fix you are trying to apply. 
Even the older KB835221 doesn't work.

So, is there a way to fix it? Fortunately, there is. 

Well, all is not lost. You can try tinkering with the INF file to make your 
Windows which is installed with SP3 to think that the KB is meant to be 
installed on SP3. redxii from msfn forum did just that and created a modified 
KB888111 which is available for download. 

I've yet to try it out but from the feedbacks, they are positive! I've tried it 
out on my system which is installed with SP3 and it worked! Just download the 7z 
(7zip) file or zip file below, extract it and then right-click at the ? mark at 
the device manager that you think might be the Audio device, reinstall the 
driver by pointing to the folder you extracted the files to. After that's done, 
install the audio driver for your motherboard. That's it! 

I've created a mirror on my blog including the original link and for those who 
need the fix or add-on as it's called, can download from any of the links below. 

Let's hope Microsoft will include the UAA driver in the SP3 RTM and save us from 
this kind of problem or else almost all audio drivers will need to be updated. 
That will create lots of problems for the vendors. 

Have fun with SP3!

Fix for KB888111 for Windows XP SP3 RC v3264 (Original)
Fix for KB888111 for Windows XP SP3 RC v3264 (Mirror)

Update (02/09/2008) : 

Received some comments saying the above fix didn't work for them, so I just went 
and did some googling and found another solution which change the CSDVersion to 
SP2 so that you can install the KB888111 for SP2. Once you're done with that, 
just remember to change back the CDSVersion to SP3. 

Below are the steps from Bored SysAdmin blog which he translated from some 
Chinese websites. 

Let's get on with the solution... see if it works for you. 

1) Open Regedit and go to :

2) Double-click CDSVersion and change it to 200, then restart your system.

  100 (hex) means its sp1
  200 (hex) means its sp2
  300 (hex) means its sp3

3) Install kb888111xp2.exe (Microsoft UAA Patch which should be available from 
your Audio driver folder)
4) Install audio driver
5) Change CSDVersion back to 300 (remember this or else you system will think 
it's still SP2 and many SP2 updates may reemerge in your Windows Update, that's 
my logical guess anyway  )
6) Restart your system

5.No sound from nVidia Sound Card but appears to be working


I've just re-installed WinXP for a friend who was having plenty of
problems (too much spyware and too many viruses to even bother to try
to fix, just wiped and re-installed from scratch) and now I can't get
the audio to work.

The audio card is an nVidia one.  The clean install was from their
WinXP SP1a CD so I downloaded SP2 and installed it, then downloaded
about 90 updates from Windows Update which included three updates for
the nVidia audio card and rebooted.  Upon installing the updates the
PC bleeper stopped beeping on errors/warnings/etc as if it was binging
from the audio card but no sound is forthcoming.

I rebooted and played an MP3 from within WinAmp and no errors were
returned and the GEQ was bouncing away merrily as if music was playing
but I got nothing from the speakers.  I double clicked the speaker
button on the task bar next to the clock and went to Advanced and
checked all the boxes to display all the various feeds, unmuted them
all and set the volume to max on them all but still nothing.

I then unplugged the amp from one socket on the sound card and put it
in the other (there are only two, and a what looks like an optical
digital output) which I assume was the Mic/Line In socket and repeated
everything but still no joy.

I swapped the plugs over again and tried the same in Windows Media
Player, same result.

I then went to nVidia's website and downloaded the latest drivers from
there, installed them (tapping 'continue' on the non-Windows Logo
Compliant boxes) to see if that did anything but after a reboot still
nothing.  Infact, WinAmp crashes on the drivers from nVidia's
website.  I soldiered on and went to the nVidia audio control panel
with the music playing in Windows Media Player and all of the stuff
from the nVidia GEQ is pumping away as one would expect, but there's
just nothing coming out of it.

I unplugged the amp completely and stuck some working earphones in it
for a second opinion (in both sockets at the back) but no audio was
coming out of them so swapped back to the amp.

I then fiddled with the 'rear is plugged into line in socket' style
entries in the volume controls area but that didn't do anything

I then hit the 'mute' option in the normal audio control next to the
clock and there was a click from the amp.  Unmute, click.  Mute,
click... that seems to imply to me that the sound card is responding
to the software as the mute button is of course software driven.  Upon
checking to make sure everything was being displayed and unmuted and
at full volume I have no idea at all why I don't get any audio out of
the sound card even when it all looks like it's working.

None of the devices are highlighted in device manager and are marked
as working properly.  Running dxdiag.exe reports that the card is
working and the audio tests work but without output to the tests.  I
tried turning the audio accelleration to none and retesting but still

Any ideas?!
