Windows 10: Multiple entries in Device Manager

    Multiple entries in Device Manager


    I have installed Win10 on an old Toshiba Satellite laptop (model A100-497) and I've got this.

    There are multiple instances in Device Manager mostly with error 12 (not enough resources).

    Any ideas on how to fix this?

    Tried looking for a BIOS update but there is none available. Disabled 2nd core and most peripherals on BIOS. Same results.

    Windows 7 works properly, but I would like to use 10.

    If you have a solid Windows 7 with no device manager errors, have you tried upgrading that to Windows 10 instead of doing a clean install of Windows 10?

    And, if you have upgraded Windows 7 to Windows 10 and this is the problem, have you tried a clean install of Windows 10?

    Hmm. Thanks for the suggestion NavyLCDR. I have only tried installing from scratch. Windows 7 is working 100% fine. As soon as I get the system patched up and with everything installed I will do a backup copy with Macrium Reflect and I will try upgrading it to Windows 10 to see what happens.

    In the process of installing w10 from w7 the installer made the laptop hardlock at 32%. Not a good sign.

    I have also noticed the laptop is running quite hot but Win7 seems to work without issues.

    Any other ideas? I think this must be the case of bad mps/acpi tables bios implementation or any other obscure issue. It seems to hate w10 with a passion.

    I give up on trying to install w10 on this laptop. At least w7 works fine.

    Too bad for MS and its masterplan about everyone adopting w10...
