    usb driver trouble

    We just purchased a laptop with windows 8. We installed our existing Faro Gage CMM measuring tool and software that worked fine on XP. The latest USB driver (approved for windows 7) will not load. It almost loads all the way and then it rolls itself back to nothing. I tried to turn off driver signature but it still wont load the driver. Tried compatability mode with no luck. All the other software for the Faro Gage works fine.
    Thank you for your help.

    What is it you're doing?are you trying to load drivers for the program through a USB port? USB ports don't need drivers It's just a way to connect peripherals and flash drives, etc. to your computer the files they need to work are on the operating system.

Am I asking for trouble?
I was getting random BSOD's from a driver called US40fs64.sys so I just renamed it to US40fs64.old and things are working OK so far. I can't find any listing of what that driver actually does. Could I hurt my system by renaming it this way? So far, it seems to have helped.
