Install Unsigned Drivers on Windows 7 & Vista with Driver Signature Enforcement...


Every time when we try to install any hardware drivers which are not signed by microsoft, Windows shows a warning of Unsigned driver dialog box. The reason of showing warning message is to protect the stability of your Windows operating system as such drivers are not passed in Microsoft windows driver compatibility test.
In Window XP you can still install unsigned drivers but in Windows Vista SP 1 and Windows 7 Microsoft has introduced very restricted module of driver signature enforcement which doesn’t allow us to install any incompatible unsigned drivers.
If you want to bypass or disable Unsigned Driver warning message then Here is small freeware utility Driver Signature Enforcement Overrider which allows you to install and load unsigned drivers dynamically on your Windows 7 and Vista.

Supported Operating System
1. Windows Vista 32-bit & 64 bit
2. Windows 7 32-bit & 64-bit
Download Drive Signature Enforcement Overrider 1.3b
Please Note: User Account Control (UAC) must be disabled in-order to use this tool.

Disable Driver Signature Enforcement On the Startup Settings screen, tap the F7 or 7 key on your keyboard to select the "Disable driver signature enforcement" option.
windows-8-disable-driver-signature-enforcement.png
Windows 8 will immediately boot to its typical lock screen. Sign into Windows 8 as you normally would - everything will look the same, except Windows will no longer demand driver signatures until you next reboot.
You can now install unsigned drivers as you would on previous versions of Windows. Windows will alert you if you try to install a driver that isn't properly signed, but you'll see an "install this driver software anyway" option you can choose.

Reboot When you're done installing the unsigned drivers, reboot your computer. Windows will keep using any unsigned drivers you've already loaded, even as it enforces signature requirements for new drivers.

Toshiba laptop restarting


The loop on your Toshiba Satellite laptop refers to the computer not booting properly.

During the loop, the computer will try to boot the Windows operating system and keep restarting over and over again.


This is not a hardware issue with your Toshiba Satellite A106.

The issue resides in the startup files on your computer's hard drive.


You can fix this by running a repair tool that comes with your Windows operating system.

This repair tool will fix your startup disk and allow you to get your computer back up and running.


Insert your Windows 7 installation disc into your computer's optical drive.


Start your computer and wait for it to boot from the install disc.


Choose your language from the menu and then click the "Next" button.


Click "Repair your computer" from the menu.


Choose the operating system you are using and then click the "Next" button.


Click on the "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" button to disable the startup loop.


Click the "Startup Repair" tool from the menu and wait for the computer to fix your startup disk.


Wait for the computer to finish repairing your startup disk and then allow it to restart automatically.


Wait for the computer to boot correctly to your login screen.


Hope this helps

Have a minolta Dimage Scan Dual III AF-2840 and Windows 7 64 bit and cannot find a driver. Any suggestions?


The above answer from Kingsway07 worked great for me on Windows 10, but I had to disable driver signature enforcement in order for step 11 to work.
To disable driver signature enforcement, follow these instructions.

a. Press the Win + C and click on PC settings.
b. Switch over to the "Update & recovery" section.
c. Then click on the Recovery option on the left hand side.
d. Once selected, you will see an advanced startup section appear on the right hand side. You will need to click on the "Restart now" button.
e. Once your Computer has rebooted you will need to choose the Troubleshoot option.
f. Then head into Advanced options.
g. Then Startup Settings.
h. Since we are modifying boot time configuration settings, you will need to restart your computer one last time.
I. Here you will be given a list of startup settings that you can change. The one we are looking for is "Disable driver signature enforcement". To choose the setting, you will need to press the F7 key.

The other day I reformatted my computer with Windows 7. My problem is that I can't get a driver to work for my network card. The computer is a Gateway GT5082 with an NVIDIA nForce 410 chipset. I can find...


with the computer off, turn it on, and right before the windows screen pops up hit F8. this will bring up a boot menu, select "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"

This should allow the driver to work. The only problem is that you will have to select this at every boot up.

Network cards are in expensive these day, i would get a newer one that will have an updated driver.

Driver is broken.


One of my main annoyances with Vista (and I'm sure I'm not the only one here) is that driver signature checks are enforced by default and difficult to work around. Vista requires that all drivers installed on the system be tested and approved by Microsoft, at the expense of the driver author. This is a problem for those of us that run programs such as ATITool or custom drivers for our video cards such as WarCats because driver signature enforcement blocks the use of third party drivers which limits their functionality. 
There are 2 known ways to work around Vista's driver signature enforcement.. The first must be done every time you boot the PC, the second is permanent. Neither of these methods works 100% for every program, and both do technically open your PC to potential stability/security risks although the chances are slim. Use of either of these methods is at your own risk.

Method 1:

Single OS - begin pressing the F8 key when you see IRQ and resource information while booting (immediately after POST). You will be presented with several options for booting Vista. One of the options will be to disable driver signature enforcement. Select it and allow the PC to boot. You will now be able to install software such as ATITool, ATI Tray Tools, or PowerStrip which install their own drivers. In order for these third party drivers to load, you must repeat this process every time you boot the PC.

Dual/Multi OS with Vista boot selection - When the list of operating systems is displayed, select Vista and press F8. You will be presented with several options for booting Vista. One of the options will be to disable driver signature enforcement. Select it and allow the PC to boot. You will now be able to install software such as ATITool, ATI Tray Tools, or PowerStrip which install their own drivers. In order for these third party drivers to load, you must repeat this process every time you boot the PC.

Method 2:

This method works from within Vista so the instructions are the same whether single or multiple operating systems are present. 

Click Start, then in the Search box type "cmd". You will see an icon for the command prompt appear in the Programs section. Move your cursor over this icon, click and hold down your right mouse button on it, drag it off onto the desktop, release the right mouse button, and select "Create Shortcut Here". Now right click this new shortcut and click "Run as administrator". You will now be presented with a DOS window and command prompt. At the prompt, type the following: "bcdedit -set loadoptions \”DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS” and press enter. Notice there are 2 D's for disable, this is intentional. Now reboot the PC and attempt to install the driver.

I ve just bought lexmark z2300 printer, how do i connect it to my laptop which is on wireless broadband with perlico? ta caroline.


You need to connect the printer with an extra cable which can join it through its 25 pin parallel cable. That cable then with USB end connect with the Laptop. and its drivers can be automatically detect by your Vista system.
For Vista 64-bit, the driver for printer and cable should be digitally signed.
Otherwise you need this method for Driver Installation in Windows Vista 64-bit:
The 64-bit version of Windows Vista is the first version of Windows that will only allow signed drivers and this restriction is built-in. For most cable drivers are unsigned and we request you to follow some prerequisites before installing the driver.
Preparing Vista 64-bit for Driver installation:
  • Using the F8 option: Press F8 key on your keyboard while booting your PC. You will get into “Advanced Boot Options”. Select “Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”
  • An F8 Advanced Boot Option introduced with Windows Vista—“Disable Driver Signature Enforcement”—is available to disable the kernel-signing enforcement only for the current boot session. This setting does not persist across boot sessions.
  • Note: Make sure to use F8 option every time you boot/reboot your PC before start working with MCS77XX.
  • Make sure that the User installing the driver must be a member of the Administrator group on the system. 
And for printer driver if you dont have CD then go through this link and follow the steps:

Let me know if you need furhter assistance, I will help you to run your Printer with Laptop.

Vista 64 bit OS did not accept the driver for the USB to DB25 parallel cable. Message says the driver must have a digital signature.


Until a new version for 64-bit Vista comes out, there are two workarounds:
1. Boot Windows holding down the F8 key and select “Disable driver signature enforcement”. This will let you install unsigned drivers for that session.
2. Run cmd.exe as an administrator (right-click it to do this) and then type:
bcdedit -set loadoptions DDISABLE_INTEGRITY_CHECKS

post again if you have problems.--------- Please rate this solution.---------
