Where are you getting the drivers from? If it is from the Boards utilities disk go to the ASUS web site for drivers to see if you have the most recent driver available. Failing that the Asus support team will led you through the set up procedure.

Driver for iphone4 code 28


Important: Device Manager error codes are exclusive to Device Manager. If you see the Code 28 error elsewhere in Windows, chances are it's a system error code which you should not troubleshoot as a Device Manager issue. Cause of the Code 28 Error A Code 28 error is caused by a missing driver for that particular piece of hardware. There are any number of reasons that a driver might not be installed for a device but your troubleshooting of the problem will be the same no matter the root cause.
Error Code 28 Troubleshooting
  1. Restart your computer if you haven't done so already.

    There is always the slim chance that the Code 28 error you're seeing in Device Manager was caused by a fluke with Device Manager or in your BIOS. If that's the case, a reboot might fix the Code 28.

  2. Did you install a device or make a change in Device Manager just before you noticed the Code 28? If so, it's very possible that the change you made caused the Code 28 error.

    Undo the change, restart your PC, and then check again for the Code 28 error.

    Depending on the changes you made, some solutions might include:

  3. Update the drivers for the device. Installing the latest manufacturer supplied drivers for a device with the Code 28 error is the most likely solution to the problem.

    Important: Make sure you install the drivers for the correct operating system. For example, if you're using Windows 7 32-bit, install the drivers designed for that specific version of Windows. Many Code 28 errors are caused by attempting to install the wrong drivers for a device.

  4. Install the latest Windows service pack. Microsoft regularly releases service packs and other patches for their operating systems, one of which may contain a fix for the cause of the Code 28 error.

    Note: I do know that certain service packs for Windows Vista and Windows 2000 have contained specific fixes for some instances of the Code 28 error in Device Manager.

  5. Replace the hardware. As a last resort, you may need to replace the hardware that has the Code 28 error.

    It's also possible that the device is not compatible with this version of Windows. You can check the Windows HCL to be sure.

    Note: If you still think there is still a software/operating system component to this Code 28 error, you could try a repair install of Windows. If that doesn't work, try a clean install of Windows. I don't recommend doing either of those more drastic options before you try replacing the hardware, but you may have to if you're out of other options.
Please let me know if you've fixed a Code 28 error using a method that I don't have above. I'd like to keep this page as updated as possible.

Tip

Stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP


Microsoft Help and Support says that "Code 28 (The drivers for this device are not installed)" appears when the Windows Sound System Compatible Driver for the Windows 2000 operating system is deleted upon the upgrade to Windows XP. It's possible to repair this code.


Instructions

1 Click on "Start."

2 On the "Start" menu, click on "Control Panel."

3 In the "Control Panel" folder, click on "Performance and Maintenance."

4 Click on the "System" folder in the "Performance and Maintenance" folder.

5 Click on the tab titled "Hardware."

6 Click on the box that says "Device Manager."

7 Click on "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers."

8 Right-click on the device that prompts Windows XP to display Code 28 (it should be Windows Sound System Compatible Driver, also called the WDM driver). A drop-down menu will appear.

9 Click on "Update" and an Update Wizard will guide you through the installation of a new device driver, which should stop Code 28 from appearing on Windows XP.

Well i've installed the game and after "installing"....a small window pops up saying drivers not up-to-date,but my laptop is a hp dv6 no older than four months with 1GB graphics card (ATI radeon hd...


after installing the game, when and if you get that kind of error, it does not mean your pc drivers are not up to date, it means the game drivers are not up to date, meaning that the pc has noticed that the game could have newer patches to download. Try finding a patch for the game and see if that helps.

Hello, my wireless is not showing on my computer and when i go on device manager on my computer it has a question mark on ethernet controller and say erro code 28, how can i fix this?


Do your Wireless Device (PCI or USB unit) comes with an installation CD? If so, use the CD to install the software/drivers.(Instead of using the Windows wizard). Remove any previous installation before reinstalling with the CD.

Resit your device to a different USB port or PCI slot. If the drivers/software are properly installed, windows will detect and installed the device correctly.
