Windows 7: Using Driver Verifier to identify issues with Drivers

verifier /query and verifier /querysettings

I'm using driver verifier and would like to look status so i used the command verifier /query and a DOS screen popped up and some lines when up and down the screen but it disappears too fast to read. Is there a way slow it down so it can be read?

I tried verifier /querysettings and the same thing happens.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

Are you running that command from a command prompt or the Run dialog? Be sure to open a command prompt first (CMD into the start menu), and then run the verifier /query command.

Jonathan,

Yes, I'm running it from the command prompt. After typing the command and pressing enter the screen flashes and is then gone.

Any ideas on how to slow it down so I can read it?

Thanks,

Try running this command instead:
Code:
verifier /query > 0 & notepad 0
It should output the info to a temp text document and open that document in notepad.

reventon,

Yes, it opened notepad but it was blank. Again the screen scrolls a bunch of text and then disapears too fast to be read.

Are you running the command from an elevated prompt?

Just hangs on login

Hee guys,

Thanks for your great post! I ran verifier but now, after login it just hangs/freezes. I can not get in to windows and look at the dump file. In safe mode nothing is logged.

How can I identify the bad driver? Please help.

Thanks in advance,

Check event viewer?

I checked the event viewer but not shure where to look for? I saw that some services not started but since I tried to boot a couple times in a row the same error should have been listed. But nothing like that....

What can I do?
