    Require recovery image for Fusion5 FWIN232 PLUS


    Hi all,

    Recently I formatted an FWIN232 Plus tablet with the intent of putting linux on it to make it run a bit more smoothly - however I ran into a few issues, namely that the touchscreen / orientation sensor didn't work. I scoured the internet looking for solutions, but of the few posts I found it appears as though others had the same issue and simply gave up.

    I was going to revert the tablet back to Windows install that it came with, the problem being that I completely wiped the hard drive to get more space for the linux install (recovery partition included). After re-installing a basic Windows 10 using the media creation tool, I have similar issues to the linux install in that the touchscreen and orientation sensor doesn't work (they are definitely not broken). Device Manager shows a couple of unknown devices which I can't find drivers for - even after doing PCI lookup, and there are a few devices which refuse to load the driver for due to a "known incompatability with windows". I presume the original install did not have these issues.

    I have attempted to search for a copy of the recovery partition / recovery disk, but I've also had no luck with this - of the few uploads I found they were for slightly different tablet models. The manufacturer is apparently known for not giving drivers out, and request that you send the tablet in to be fixed... for a fee obviously - not ideal, as they also want you to provide proof of purchase / warranty which has long been expired.

    I was wondering if it's possible for someone with the same tablet to upload their recovery partition? Would that work? Does anyone knows where I could potentially source a recovery partition / disk from, or has a solution to the driver issues I've mentioned above?

    Any help would be appreciated,
    Thanks

    Stevey,

    If you manage to resolve this problem then I urge you to make regular system images & backup all drivers.


    You seem to be asking the wrong questions. Unless you can get copies of driver installation files published by the maker, what you need is someone who has backed up their drivers so that you can restore them.
    Backup and Restore Device Drivers - TenForumsTutorials
    I have a computer from a similarly useless maker and it was only having backed up my drivers before a Clean install that saved me. I have since uploaded several of those drivers to help other Chuwi Hi10Pro owners.

    Failing that, you can try Search for drivers by HardwareID - TenForums

    I also suggest you search the forum for Fusion5. I know others have asked about it before; their threads might contain download links.
    The only relevant thread I took part in was I can't find audio drives for my fusion5 laptop - TenForums
    Whilst it's not quite the same model, the link posted by dalchina in Fusion5 T90B+ Pro drivers missing - TenForums would seem worth investigating.


    Best of luck,
    Denis

    if you are very lucky somebody who has that model might export the drivers and upload them for you.

    - sadly another example of why the routine use of 3rd party disk imaging is endlessly recommended- if you'd been doing that, you could just have restored the image from a file or files saved on a backup disk and been back as you were.

    I can only wish you luck..

    That's exactly what I'm asking for since they would be on the recovery partition that I've asked if anyone has - surely there's someone else who has bought this tablet and can do that? I was basically under the assumption that a clean install of windows would be able to find the drivers - as 99% of the time (when I've built a new computer, say) I haven't had to explicitly install drivers for it - windows would usually find generic ones or even official ones from the manufacturer via windows update, which is good enough.

    I am surprised at how closed off / integrated the hardware is in these chinese tablets, such that getting basic drivers for them is this hard

    I am afraid that there is very little support for these cheap tablets and the standard ms isos rarely contain the drivers you are missing. The only way I can think of realistically solving your issue is to buy a second tablet and getting drivers from that.

    I have been able to get about 85% of the way there using snappy driver installer. The only things that now do not work is the orientation and the audio - I've been through about 20 different drivers all with various compatability issues / errors preventing them from working. The touchscreen is now working, as is the battery driver and front webcam. All of the unknown devices have now gone as well, so I will continue fiddling around tomorrow to try and solve those last 2 things

    I had one of those types of tablets before and to get screen rotation to work, I had to make registry entries. It's been so long ago, I don't remember what they were.

    Perhaps IRotate can help you out, albeit manually.

    Did you try this?
