Driver Talent / My Driver Talent Reported Code "Used Up" Error!
« on: May 27, 2017, 07:57:32 AM »
Feedback from users:
"I reformatted my computer and now my code don’t work. It reported code used up when I try to activate Driver Talent Pro. I use the code on the same computer."

The code for Driver Talent is designed to associate with specific computers. Take the code for 1 PC as the example, it can be associated with only 1 machine. So if you use this code on another machine, this error will appear.

This error also happens even if you use this code on only one PC, just as the example in the above. It happens mostly because you have multiple disks on your computer. In this case, please contact our support team for help.

If you recently updated drivers and soon after that the issue "SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION (asmtxhci.sys) BSOD" occurred, you should roll back to the previous drivers. You could restore it from backup or roll it back from the system under Device Manager.
And please note not to update it until the manufacturers released updated version of those drivers to fix that issue.

Another case that caused this problem is the driver version for US 3.0 Root Hub and USB 3.0 eXtensible Host Controller is not the same. So please check them and correct them if it is the case.
