INF files are simply instructions that tell the kernel (windows) how to use a specific device.
your problem is that you need to check device manager for any problems that it reports. look for any yellow exclamation points or red X's. Try re-installing the webcam drivers.

    The drivers are in the cd that came with the webcam.
    If the webcam is built in, the drivers are in the cd that came with the computer.

My Acer aspire 4530's acer crystal eye webcam pops out a blank screen when i click on that application. I tried reinstalling the driver but it still doesn't work. Does anyone know how i can solve this...


may be your problem is included a hardware portion !
the first, you must be sure the hardware inside your PC doesn't contined a problem , check it..
then on the software see all inf files go to Run : type inf then Enter .. there are must be including more of the nesessary inf files ..
if in that folder dosn't contined ibf files .. you have to repare your system or get inf files from another computer and copy all to that folder on your system..

or may be your driver for that webcam detected by a virus dosn't work propably ... or your Windows is detected by virus or probel .. last trying you have to formatting your system .that is be check it .

QuickCam Pro 9000 problem (Vista 64 bit)


make sure the following INF installed in %windir%\inf?

* usb.inf
* wdmaudio.inf
* wdma_usb.inf

The usb.inf is likely missing. Download it and place it in the windows\inf folder. Then remove all logitech drivers and software and re-install.

I have Aspire 4730Z acer laptop. but can't install blue tooth. when going to install driver from utility CD showing no device found. let me clear how can I resolve the problem


Method 1: Rename the Bth.inf file loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); Rename the %WINDIR%\inf\Bth.inf file to Bth.bak before you install or reinstall the third-party device or stack. When you rename the file, you prevent Windows Plug and Play PNP from using that INF file to install the Bluetooth driver that is included with Windows XP SP2. To rename the file, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type %windir%\inf in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Right-click Bth.inf, and then click Rename.
  3. Rename Bth.inf to Bth.bak, and then press ENTER.
  4. Install the third-party Bluetooth driver.

Method 2: Update the Bluetooth driver in Device Manager loadTOCNode(2, 'workaround'); To replace the Windows XP SP2 installation of the Bluetooth stack, update the driver in Device Manager. When you do this, specify your third-party driver. To update the driver in Device Manager, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type devmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then click OK.
  2. Locate the device.
  3. Right-click the device, and then click Update Driver.
  4. Follow the steps that appear on the screen in the Hardware Update Wizard to specify your third-party driver for the Bluetooth device.

Acer crystal eye webcam


After weeks of trying to install my Acer Crystal Eye Camera on an Acer Aspire 6920 with a fresh vista install, I have finally solved this problem.

The error I was getting when trying to install the drivers:

"Could not install device. The required section was not found in the INF."

The problem is a missing registry key for Imaging Devices.
Here's how to fix it:

1. Start Menu > regedit.exe
2. Expand HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
3. Expand SYSTEM
4. Expand CurrentControlSet
5. Expand Control
6. Expand Class (and keep it highlighted/selected) 7. Edit > New > Key
8. Rename the key to: {6BDD1FC6-810F-11D0-BEC7-08002BE2092F}
9. Open the key, in the right hand side double click (Default)
10. Rename the Value Data to: Imaging Devices 11. Reinstall device drivers and you're done!

Check that your usb ports are functional by plugging in another known good working device, mouse, etc. Most devices want you to install the CD before you connect the hardware. When it's asking you for the drivers, be sure you point it manually to the folder on the disk with the .INF files. The INF file tells the computer what DLL and System files to load to use your device. Check under the Device manager to see that the device is installed all the way or if it has a question mark on it saying something is wrong.
