Gateway 8715 masss storage controller

Hi i have uninstalled and reinstalled this driver even in safe mode. I still have a yellow question mark.

I talked to the gateway techs and gave me the same driver as on there support site.

It does not work and what makes it worse windows keeps asking to install the driver.

Help please

I cant get the touch pad and mouse to respond long enough to change settings and not sure where to go to do that.


If mouse stops working shortly after booting up, sounds like driver conflicts, reboot and enter Safe Mode (normally press F8 on startup, but key may vary between systems) Drivers can normally not conflict with eachother in Safe Mode, Next enter Device Manager through the control panel and find your tochpad or mouse drivers, typically they will be marked with a yellow warning triangle if they are improperly configured or conflicted, rightclick and select uninstall, scan for hardware changes and let it automatically reinstall the touchpad or mouse drivers.

If driver still not working, there may be old, hidden drivers, some systems may be able to show these by pressing view->show hidden drivers in the device manager, older systems typically windows XP will have to run cmd.exe and type in the following lines to show the 'ghost' drivers:
SET DEVMGR_SHOW_NONPRESENT_DEVICES=1
DEVMGMT.MSC
this will start up device manager with added parameter, you must still enable 'show hidden devices'.

Note: it is pretty safe to uninstall drivers under the sections:
Keyboards
Mice and other pointing devices
Monitors
Network Adapters
Sound, Video and Game controllers
Storage Volumes
Universal Serial Bus controllers

However, understand the risks of uninstalling and editing system components, if you do not have a way to restore your system to factory settings, or reinstall your system completely, of if you have important information stored on the computer, you should thread extra carefull- hope for the best but prepare for the worst.

Screen is blk when pwr up


hi it look likes you have driver issue

in safe mode do the following please

Click on

Start>Control panel>Sstem>(Tab called) Hardware>Tab called device manager)

in device manager there will be a littl cross next to a section called display adpaters

Left click on that and you may 1 or possibly 2 options that come up with or without a yellow exclamation mark, go ahead and right click on these devices and click uninstall.

Once done you will be requested to restart your Pc, do this and when windows resumes you will have had your screen back and the drivers will reinstall

If this has been useful please leave positive feedback/vote

Mass storage controller driver


Greetings,
IDE controller starts to install the driver automatically as soon as you restart. The best way to get it completely removed from your comp is that in case you are using Windows XP or higher version goto Safe mode by tapping the F8 key on the keyboard on restart. goto control panel to Add/ remove programmes and uninstall the software completely. I hope I helped you out.

Gatewaymx6421 help with fixing Mass Storage and SM Bus Controller


More often than not this is because there are multiple instances of the devices in the device manager and therefore until there are only one, they show up as yellow !. The best way to reinstall is to remove ANY mention of the device, then scan for new hardware and install your drivers from there.

Installed the drivers from the Gateway Web


i have a suggestion:

right click on the yellow exclamation mark then update driver then search for driver automatically if nothing happens go to manufacturers site and try downloading the driver to them directly.
