Drivers Do Not Install Windows 7
Posted on 2014-08-23
I have a Windows 7 Dell computer that came into the shop that will not install drivers. It attempts to automatically install but fails.
Found New Hardware - Unknown Device.
Windows couldn't find driver software for your device.
There are multiple things that it will not install. I do have the keyboard going (luckily), but I don't even have a mouse at the moment. There are no PS/2 ports on this machine. It's a Dell Inspiron 518. I have downloaded and installed the chipset to try to fix USB issues, but this did not work. When I tried to uninstall some of the USB controllers, they try to reinstall as Unknown Device. I point it to the right drivers, and it says that it cannot find the file specified.
USB Flash Drives also to not install. The monitor does not install!
