    Windows 10 Driver installation


    Hi really need some help
    I had to wipe my teclast tbook 11 as Windows bricked and I have installed a fresh copy via USB all good. None of the devices work even wi fi do I downloaded the driver set unzipped it and its ready to go. On a video I watched the guy copy's all the folders and pastes them in to another. Then the drivers work. I do not know which folder to paste the driver files to. Anyone know how to do this. When I try to go via device manager and do it that way Windows says best driver installed so this paste seems to be the only way.

    Give Snappy Driver Installer a try, but make a backup copy and restore point before proceeding.

    Hi, welcome to tenforums.

    Something is significantly wrong if you don't have a set of appropriate drivers following a clean Windows install.

    When you say
    None of the devices work even wifi
    - does your PC boot up? Can you see the screen? (It seems you can). Can you move the mouse/touchpad? It seems you can.

    If so, many of your devices are working- yet you say
    None of the devices work
    . Which is actually correct?

    Please post a screenshot of your Device Manager using the Insert Image icon above your post.
    Are there any yellow exclamation marks indicating missing drivers?
    When I try to go via device manager and do it that way Windows says best driver installed
    So, can you now please focus carefully, and be specific. Which devices exactly do not work?
    You mention your Wi-fi- that's one- the network card.

    Now please complete your system specs. (Compare mine- click My computer- for comparison).
    There is a tutorial to help if you have problems with this. Thanks.

    We do not know - the model of your laptop. The build of your Windows. Whether it is Home or Pro. What sort of disk you have. Etc...

    Installing drivers is nothing to do with cut and paste as you describe.
    @eLPuSHeR - do you really believe the problem here is missing drivers? I'd need proof of that given the description.

    Hi there

    all those "Driver" things are essentially worse than Snake oil -- some install other bits of software / spyware etc and a lot have a nasty provison of finding n alleged driver but in order to download it you have to "Go Pro" i.e PAY.

    Drivers are invariably available on the manufacturers sites for ZERO cost, and W10 itself does a pretty good job of finding them in any case.

    If Windows really can't find one then you can look up the device id ("VEN") from the windows event log (under device with ? or unknown device -->properties-->event log). Ther'll be VEN with a number - copy that and enter it into a google search to get the details and hence the manufacturer.

    For example

    You are heading in the wrong direction, I'm afraid.

    If you could possibly take a brief moment to tell us what exactly and precisely isn't working, we might, perhaps, be able to help you. Otherwise, I think you'll be on your own.

    You've mentioned Wifi. What exactly is wrong? What do you see - any symbols, error messages?
    Have you tried rt clicking the notification tray icon, and clicking 'Troubleshoot'?
    Try that and post a screenshot of what you see.

    Is there anything else that doesn't work?
    What are the symptoms?
    Have you tried any relevant troubleshooter?
