Windows won't boot without flash Drive/USB Drive/CD

This problem cause by bootloader, a program that load your operating system. So, if your hard disk (internal) does not have the bootloader it won't boot to windows because no program will load your operating system (Windows XP/7/8/10 etc). In one case (Asus Notebook) the bootloader not installed in C partition (the windows partiton he use to install windows) but installed on the USB disk. So, without the USB disk he can't boot to windows.

So here how to fix it:

First of all Insert you installation Disk (either DVD or USB Stick)

In Windows 8:
When installation windows appear Click Next - click Repair your computer

 click Troubleshoot
 click Advanced options
 choose Command Prompt
Then type: (press enter to execute the command and do it one by one)

bootrec / fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot 

Windows Vista/7:
It is the same method as Windows 8 you need to access the command prompt. to do this insert you installation Disk and select repair. Then select keyboard - Use recovery tools - Command prompt

The type the following command one by one and press enter after each line.

bootrec / fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot

You can also use Bootrec.exe by microsoft instead. I never try it and it is a lot to explain how to use this tools. so I just write the easiest method to fix this =p

Clean Installation of Windows 10 on Acer Aspire

I've decided to install Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire E15, and I did it today, and I notice great difference in terms of performance over Windows 8.1. (I will point out what I did to make a clean installation on my Acer Aspire Notebook

1. Activation.
It will took 24-48 hours to activate if you make a clean installation. So, upgrading from your previous version is recommended. There are lots of complaints on various forum saying they could not activate windows after clean installation. Microsoft also mentioned that you need to upgrade first before make a clean installation. However recently I found that after the installation, you need to log in to your Microsoft account (live account) and it will activated within 1 or 2 days.

2. Windows Version
Check your windows version so that you can upgrade for free, for example I am using Windows 8.1 Single Language so I can only install Windows 10 Home. If you install Windows 10 Pro Over Windows 8 (basic edition) you will need to purchase the activation key.

3. Create a bootable USB
You will have no problems if you are using DVD to install windows 10. If you are using USB, most current Notebook uses UEFI, it means using Windows USB/DVD released by Microsoft will not work. What what I did was download and install rufus, run the program and create a bootable USB. It has a feature where you can select to format it as GPT for UEFI because MBR only works for notebook tat using BIOS (not UEFI). You also need to select fat32 and not NTFS for the file system.

4. Installation
Upon power on your laptop, press F12 (other model might need to press other keys) to enter the boot selection, select your USB device to start install windows 10. . Remove your USB upon reboot so that it will not boot from the USB and restart the whole installation process again. If you familiar with BIOS/UEFI you can change the setting in the BOOT menu and set your USB as 2nd boot device and your HDD as the first boot device.

5. Product Key/CD Key/Activation
During installation, it will ask for Product Key twice. First time you just need to select Skip and the second select do this later. After the installation finish, just connect to the internet and it will automatically  activated within 2 days . (If not you may need to contact Microsoft to sort it out, and of course someone did contact Microsoft using online chat and success, but he also mentioned how long he have to wait to resolve that matter.)

6. Drivers
Windows 8 or Windows 7 driver should work in Windows 10, but the first thing you need to do is to run automatic updates because it will install the latest drivers for you notebook. I noticed on my Acer there are 3 drivers missing which is (you can check this on device manager):

Video driver : Basic Display Adapater
I use Intel HD driver, I got 4 options to install driver which are download from Acer website, Download from Intel website, run automatic update or directly right click and select update driver from device manager. I use the last option because it does not matter what version it will install, It's low end graphic and the driver won't show any significant improvement. (right?)

TXE Driver : I forgot the name before I installed the driver (lol)
However this driver will not updated automatically, I need to download TXE driver from Acer to install this driver.

SMS message access
This device is some sort of bluetooth component, I just need to install bluetooth driver from acer website. Since I didn't use Bluetooth, I just ignore and leave it there.

So there you go, If you have problems, question or suggestion, leave your comments on the comments section below.

Intel and AMD CPU Drivers

I have few people asking me do my laptop or computers need CPU drivers? 

The answer is NO.

In the early 90s, yes, AMD or some computers manufacturer like Compaq do provide driver updates for your CPU, however it is an optional driver update to improve your CPU stability. That is an old story, because basically if you are using Windows XP and above (Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10), Windows will automatically recognized and install the CPU drivers on your system.

To put it simple, here is the list what drivers you need to install for your computer:

Hardware that you don't have to install  any driver:
1. USB 2.0
2. Mouse
3. Keyboard
4. DVD
5. CPU (Central Processing Unit) or Processor
6. PSU (Power Supply Unit)
7. Battery (Laptop)

Hardware you need to install driver:
1. Chipset
2. Audio
3. Graphic
4. Wireless (inbuilt or dongle/USB wireless)
5. Bluetooth (inbuilt or dongle/USB wireless)
6. Card reader (Inbuilt only - mostly for laptop)
7. Touchpad
8. Quick launch (Mostly for HP/Compaq notebook)
9. LAN or Ethernet
10. USB 3.0
11. Webcam (Camera - inbuilt or USB)
12. Fingerprint (If your computer have one)

There are others additional drivers essential for computer with Intel Chipset such as:
MEI (Intel Management Interface)
Intel turbo Boost
Intel rapid Storage technology (Mostly for Windows 7 for fast boot)
Intel Matirx Storage Technology (Mostly for Windows XP)

Take note that you if you are using Windows Vista and above, some of the drivers automatically installed. Windows 7 normally will install all drivers except Card Reader and certain graphic driver. It is the best to check what drivers you are missing, then just download it from your computer manufacturer website.

How to Fix SM Bus Controller Driver

SM Bus Controller Stand for System Management Bus which integrated with your computer chipset. You SM Bus Controller driver is missing if  device manager displays SM Bus controller under other devices with Yellow Sign.

SM Bus Controller in Windows XP
SM Bus Controller in Windows 7

You can fix it by installing the latest chipset drivers for your computer. This problem is common among computers with Intel and AMD chipset.

1. First download the latest chipset drivers.

Intel Chipset / SM Bus Controller Driver: Intel chipset Installation Utility
AMD Chipset : AMD SM Bus Driver 

2. Install the drivers and wait until the installation finish.

3. Restart your computer after installation finish.

Your laptop or motherboard manufacturer also provide the chipset drivers on their support site. However installing the drivers from Intel or AMD is recommended since they always provide the latest drivers available.

Where to Download AMD Chipset?
For Intel you does not have to choose the chipset because Intel provide one software to install any Intel chipset/SM Bus controller driver. Downloading AMD chipset driver is not easy if you are not used with the website interface, you need to go to AMD Download center here:

Then select the chipset with the right operating system. Then click display results.  Refer to the pictures below:
You can check your chipset series by looking at your motherboard or laptop specification or choose not sure from the drop down menu.

You will not notice a significant change on your system after installing the SM Bus Controller Driver. However it is important to maintain your Windows Operating System Stability.

How to Install and Fix CSR Bluetooth Driver

CSR Bluetooth is one of the common Inbuilt Bluetooth devices on most laptop, desktop commonly uses the CSR Bluetooth dongle since most desktop does not have the inbuilt Bluetooth device. What you need to do basically install the drivers CD (that come with it when you buy it) or get the Bluetooth drivers from your notebook/device manufacturer.

This method worked for:
-Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. Not yet tested with Windows 8.
-CSR and other Bluetooth device.


 BUT, sometimes, even the drivers installed properly, your Bluetooth still does not work. This is the most common problem for CSR Bluetooth devices. The main culprit normally Windows Update. Windows automatically installed a new driver but the truth it is unstable and cause your Bluetooth not working properly. You can also applied the method I described below with other Bluetooth device such as Atheros, Ralink, Broadcom and Realtek. The main reason I make this post specifically for CSR is unlike other Bluetooth devices manufacturer, CSR doesn't seem to have a support site where you can download the stable drivers. So there are 2 ways to solve this:

1. Make sure to plug in your Bluetooth dongle.
2. For inbuilt bluetooth (commonly for laptop), turn on your bluetooth by pressing the Fn key + Bluetooth key. (look for the bluetooth symbol on your keyboard).


click on the picture to enlarge
  • Open device manager, look for your Bluetooth Icon,
  • Right click on it and select properties
  • select drivers tab
  • and select roll back drivers,
If the rollback driver options is not available, proceed to STEP 2.


This method work most of the time especially for those who installed a newer version of the driver (for example the drivers from the windows update). Windows actually have a generic bluetooth drivers which can be use with any bluetooth device. So not to worry if you lost your original driver backup or Drivers CD.

 Open device manager and look for Universal Serial Bus Controller. Click the arrow to expand the list  and you will see CSR BluCore Nanosira listed if you use nanosira Bluetooth.

Normally for notebook such as ACER, HP and ASUS, or you are using other Bluetooth brand, you will see your Bluetooth listed under Bluetooth or other devices in device manager. you will also see a yellow exclamation mark on it.
(Don't worry if you see too many of them, normally when you install the driver once, all the other will gone - automatically installed).

  • Right click on the Bluetooth device and select Update Driver Software
  • Then select Browse my computer for drivers software and then 
  • "Let me pick form a list of device drivers on my computer".

Now you will see a Generic Bluetooth radio from the list. Select it and continue with on screen instruction until installation Finish. Sometimes it is listed as Generic BT drivers.

Now you will be able to use your Bluetooth again.

HP Pavilion ZE2000 Windows 7 Drivers

Windows 7 and Pavilion ZE2000

Windows 7 will automatically install the drivers you need. The main problem is you will need to install the graphic driver to get the maximum resolution and performance and also the audio drivers. This is because most ZE2000 uses Intel 82825/82855 GME graphic chipset which no official Windows 7 drivers released by Intel or HP. Further more, all ZE2000 model/variants uses Conexant AC-Link which does have an official support site which provide newer driver for old sound chipset.

ZE2000 Windows 7 Drivers

Actually you only need to use the original Windows XP drivers, but it require a little bit modification before installation.
I already write a brief installation guide to install both audio and graphic drivers.

Audio Driver for Windows 7. : Drivers and installation
Graphic drivers: Drivers and installation

Others Drivers Installation

If you have problems with the other driver do let me know. From my experience you will also need to install Card reader driver (if you want to use it). You can also use your original XP driver, just install it in compatibility mode or use the same audio installation method to install the card reader.

You wifi should work because from my experience windows will automatically installed the driver for it. Do let me know if you have problems with the driver installation.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Windows 7 Drivers

Dell website only provides Windows XP driver for this model. Not to worry though, after installing Windows 7, you will only need to install 3 drivers which is the Audio, Graphic and Wireless. If you have a Wired internet connection (using Ethernet/LAN cable). Just connect to the internet and run Windows automatic updates, install the available updates, and you will have all the drivers you needed for your Inspiron 6000.

However if you want to download and install it manually, here is the drivers you will need:

Download all 3 drivers (it is actually your original Windows XP Drivers).

Graphic Driver
Intel Graphics:

Audio Driver

Wireless Drivers

Note that there are 3 applicable wireless Drivers, you need to test which drivers work for you:
