I'm gonna go out on a limb here mr hagimostafa and say why don't you try to (one) Go back a restore point or several to get beyond where you installed the drivers OR (two) find out where you can roll the drivers back. Usually there's a place where you can undo new driver installation to the original drivers. BUT, other's here may chime in differently and I'm only a wannabe geek!

i do install lot's of apps addons and drivers daily and i'm not sure which one of them may cause the problem if i wanna restore or rollback!
meanwhile in win8 restoring results in data loss! usually everything u have in download folder or downloaded in whole restored period will lost!

I'm not sure if you are thinking I'm talking about the Windows 8 partial OS restore, that does result in some data loss. But I am talking about a simple restore point, recent. When I have problems I might look to a restore point in the last couple of days. That's not that much of a loss usually. Then as I begin to add back things that "might" have been the problem I check after each install, whether driver or application. Sometimes applications cause problems, sometimes drivers. But I know of no other way to eliminate or focus on the issue.

Good luck, Jack ":-D

You have a lot of package opening failures in that log, you may have done an update that was a beta. If you have your device drivers saved, try re-installing all drivers that have to do with your Chipset.

I'd try a system restore to a date you knew it was all working, Using Drivermax probably caused it. I can't tell you specifically which ones because there are hundreds of package open failures. Usually that happens when a driver is not made for the OS you are trying to use it in. But you can still get it in, ytou have to add it manually. That's what I did with the HDMI Audio drivers for a Gateway Laptop I had - I downloaded the Vista drivers and took them out of the EXE, then added them manually and it worked.

If your system is old, like mine is you may have to do that for most of your main drivers.

Most likely Drivermax downloaded some Drivers that were not specifically for your MB. So I'd do a system restore, and then stop using that.

Actually they have it listed in Major Geeks and if it were bad, they wold not list it. But it probably sent you a few bad drivers. Windows 8 is pretty good at finding your exact drivers. If you have to, take out all of them and put them back in one by one starting with the ORIGINAL drivers for your Motherboard from the disk you got with the board. If it is an OEM puter, the original drivers will be in a folder named "HP" or 'Dell" or "Swdrivers"

I just downloaded Drivermax and tried it - It's a racket. It told me I needed new drivers for my nVidia 8400 and I just INSTALLED the latest non-beta driver. Then it said the update files were unavailable.

I'm quite sure any drivers you got with this are totally the wrong drivers for your system, I'm convinced of that now.

it's quite a mess! it is third time that it cause serious hardware failure for me! last time even system restore didn't help and i had to reinstall OS!
meanwhile how can i do a cleanup before installation? is there any tool to clean driver cache?

since you mentioned it i tried lots of this tools, even though drivermax may show more updates but most of them are beta and irrelevant and because of it's forced installation type it installs them and cause serious malfunction! drivereasy has the updates drivers which all of them are official and it uses official installers from device vendors which is reliable. at whole it is the best you can find free

Oh yeah, forgot about that one, it's good too. I use programs like that just in great desperation, my preference is to chase them down at manufacturer's sites.

I use DriverMax Pro & have no problems with it.
It gives you the option to create a restore point before installing a driver.
If the driver causes problems, you can either roll back to previous driver or use a restore point.

You need to install drivers one by one & check for problems as you go.

If you chop your wood with it, you would say it is a good tool.

If you chop your foot off with it, can you blame the axe ?

Nope.
I would chalk that up to user error.

you are confessing that it is based on trial and error! in fact they put some drivers some users confront difficulties then they withdraw for others until they find out which drivers works for which device!

No.
DriverMax has never given me a bad driver.

I am saying be careful.

Go slow & don't install a bunch of drivers without testing each one.

The Windows driver up-grader in Device Manager has given me bad drivers.

I used it once just to test it & never since.

After Windows found bad drivers I used DriverMax & it found me the correct drivers.

I am saying,as the picture shows, that If a driver would be the wrong one, Getting rid of it is easy.

Backups,restore points,roll-backs.

I gotta set you guys STRAIGHT. Drivermax and other CACK programs like it? Are ALL fake. YOU DON'T NEED these kinds of POS proVIRUSgrams. There IS no issue of "This one is better than that one" because they are ALL Bad, all fake and all malicious and install unwanted software.

And we see the result, use of Drivermax has rendered this guys PC unusable.

If you need new drivers, DOWNLOAD THEM FROM THE MAKERS SITE.

Sorry for yelling.

DO NOT use any Driver programs. If Windows 8 is not automatically downloading new drivers for you when they are found, then no new drivers that are relevant are available.

hagimostafa
?

GET RID of Drivermax and roll ALL of your drivers back as far as they go, actually uninstall them all. because you got drivers fro the wrong hardware and OS installed

You may want to simply do an In-Place Install and it may fix the bad hardware installations. But you have beenm using this POS Virusgram so much, there is no clue as to where the real drivers start and where they have been taken over by bad driVIRUSers given to you by Drivirusmax.

You save all of you r user docs and files, wipe the drive and reinstall Windows 8.
