WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

Question: WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

After installing Windows 10 pro my WiFi will not connect. I have tried updating the driver (Ralink RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adaptor) and it tells me its upto date. im assuming this driver is the issue but not sure how i can fix this. My laptop model is: HP Pavilion dv6t-6c00 CTO Notebook, Windows 7 home premium (x64)

Preferred Solution: WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: WiFi not working after update to Windows 10 64bit

Hi: The only suggestion I can offer, would be to try the W8 driver for the RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi card your notebook has. I am not surprised that it doesn't work on W10, since there are no W8.1 or W10 drivers for that model card. This package contains the driver installation package for the Realtek RTL8188CE wireless LAN Controller in the supported notebook models running a supported operating system. http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp59001-59500/sp59181.exe

Recently I learned of the free upgrade to windows 10. I was supposed to click on an icon in the task bar that did not appear. I was instructed to check to see if my Window updates were up to date. I went to windows update and it did not function. I followed the update steps listed in the post and had the following results;
Ran SURT, it successfully completed
ran sfc/scannow as Admin, got the following error: 'Windows Resource protection could not perform the requested operation.
Tried windows update, got error 80070246
CBS Folder (zipped) is 36 MB and will not upload. Is there something in the folder that is needed specifically? There are some big .cab files in there. I've zipped and attached the CBS.log file

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
I don't know when update stopped working as I haven't checked it in sometime. Perhaps two months. The update history shows updates to MSIE and not much else.
I have used CCleaner to clean my registry regularly but never saw any bad effects.

Answer:Windows update not working. Win7 64bit

It looks to me like you have registry corruption.
I need to have a look at your COMPONENTS registry hive

Please copy the C:\Windows\System32\config\COMPONENTS file (no extension) to your desktop and then compress it - upload the compressed file to your favoured fileshare site (preferably Dropbox or OneDrive) and post a link.

Today i updated my Windows 7 laptop to the Windows 10 Home 64bit OS. Everything seems to work fine, except the WIFI. Windows does find my adapter, but won't wake it up. My built-in wifi button (f12) has got a red light on it, even when I pressed it. I tried the Windows 8 wireless button driver, but i didn't solve my problem. With that driver installed the button switches between airplanemode on/off. Not between WIFI. Also in the WIFi settings wifi turn off. When I try to switch it on, it directly turns back to "off". Wired internet works flawless. I gues it's an driver issue, so i was wondering if there is an driver upcomming? Or is there another solution to switch it on.Please help me. It's very annoying.

 We use Yoga Pro 3 computers for work, so I have several and this problem is the same on 3 of them (which leads me to rule out a hardware issue): the wifi adapter just went missing one night, seemingly after the latest routine windows 10 update.  Bluetooth is still there, but no wifi.  If I go into the device managers, I see a bunch of 'wan miniport' artifacts, but no actual wifi adapater.  I've rolled back the update (multiple udpates, for tha matter), played around in BIOS, I've tried intsalling the network adapter drivers manually, and on one computer, I even did a factory reset.  Nothing works.  Certainly a windows update can't damage the wifi card itself.  Anyone have any ideas?  No network connection makes these computers expensive paperweights.  And since they're employee computers, time is critical.  I'm giong to have to guy buy new computers this week if I can't resolve this.

Hi All,

I have been battling an issue with Windows 10 every night for the last 2 weeks. I apologise for the long post but will try to provide as much detail as possible.

Initially I had a critical error warning which stopped me accessing the start menu and Internet explorer/edge. I fixed this by uninstalling Norton Antivirus and installing an alternative.

However I now have no wifi internet connection. All other devices using the wifi are working fine. I have checked the driver for the wifi adapter and it is up to date. The adapter also states working fine when running various tests. I have also reset my router and tried many other fixes to no avail.

I also have have a problem with the 'updates and security' option from the control panel. When I click on this it doesn't do anything.

I have spoken to Microsoft and they have suggested the driver for the adapter is incompatible. However the computer has been working fine with wifi for a good while since updating to Win 10. They suggested the solution was to revert back to Win 8 but this seems a step backwards and I don't have the product key for Win 8 so would need to purchase new.

I am thinking the only option would be a reset but I can't access that as the updates and security tab doesn't work.

I have run a system check (sfc scan now) and that found no issues. I have also ran a full Antivirus scan but again found nothing.

Any advice greatfully received.

Answer:Windows 10 wifi and update & security not working

Few things, I could think of: uninstall Norton with Norton removal tool. Doesn't matter if you already uninstall in different way.

For the time you solve this problem use just Windows defender - uninstall other AV too. Windows defender is just OK for now.
Then reset firewall.

Hello there,  On my S 205 I recently upgradet from Windows 8 64bit to 8.1 64bit. Now my wifi doesn't seem to work anymore. The wifi switch in the network settings is greyed out and the "hardware switch" on the right side of the laptop only seems to enable bluetooth. I tried to install the win8 drives, but it crashed my OS and i had to do a system restore.  So since there dont seem to be any win 8.1 drivers on the offical site,  anyone has an idea to get wifi working again? I dont have Power Management installed.  Thank you

Hi All, As the title states, I made upgraded to Windows 10 on my X201 which was previously running Windows 7 Pro 64bit. Everything was running well until Windows 10 had another small update. I went with it and now my wireless connectivity gets cut out every time I'm running the laptop and "Not connected - No connections are available" is displayed. When I restart the laptop, I finally get WiFi to come back, only for a little bit before it disappears.  My network adapter is the Intel Centrino Advanced N WiMax 6250. Things I have done: 1. Downloaded the latest drivers and installed. No difference.2. Tried to delete the HKEY string that had to do with a previous VPN installed. No difference because I never had a VPN installed.3. Tried to downgrade to the previous version of Windows 10 before the update. No difference. Could this be a hardware issue? In Device Manager, the 6250 does not show up as a network adapter. It shows up under "Other Device" with a yellow exclamation point next to it. The properties show that "The drivers for thsi device are not installed." Any suggestions?  Thank you so much in advance!M

Answer:X201 Windows 10 64bit WiFi problems.

HiMissing drivers causes issue.Intel doesn't provide win10 drivers for a lot of wireless cards outdated, 6250 including. MS win10 image and update catalog don't include such drivers also. So, the only chance is to use win8.1 drivers in the compatibility mode. If they are absent on the Lenovo support site (I didn't check out that, sorry), get it on the Intel site:https://downloadcenter.intel.com/product/65805Try to use package with drivers only inside, w/out PROSet wireless software (read the package Description).

Updated both my laptopts to latest driver 13.1.1.1 from Intel but its still same problem.
Sometimes it detects the wireless network but can't connect, sometimes it can connect but drops connection after exactly 2minutes.

Tried with another router, same issues there.

if updating the driver did not work, you might want to try this:
Go to Control Panel->System->Hardware Tab->Device Manager. Select Intel Pro under Network Adapters. Right Click and Select Properties, then under power manager, you can uncheck the box that say:
"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"

You might want to update power manager driver from the manufactue's site

Any help would be greately appreciated...!!!

Answer:Wifi adaptor not working with mobile wifi device after upgrading to Windows 8 Pro

Hi, ritmehta
 
I think you're on the right track with the wireless settings, since the router works for everything else connected to it. And to hopefully stop the occurrence of the error and associated blue screen, I would recommend trying to boot into Safe Mode with Networking. This should allow you to be able to uninstall the device without the computer going into a blue screen. 
 
To enter Safe Mode, either restart your computer or start from a cold boot. Begin tapping F8 repeatedly at the splash screen and continue tapping it until you see a menu appear. There should be several options. Select Safe Mode with Networking. This will boot your machine only using the core drivers and devices, as well as the network ones. 
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Answer:Wifi adapter not working after auto-update on 3/30/16

Well, I've been trying the standard help route - I have an HP trouble ticket 302-717-3415.  I?ve been trying to get a callback since last Tuesday. HP Support (Floor Supervisor Rhim) says they can?t move without the approval of the case manager (Amanda), the case manager line has gone to voicemail for 6 days.  Meanwhile, my wireless adapter driver is still not working.  I believe there is a mismatch among driver files and \inf files and I need an expert to help sort this out.  Can someone please help. Did anyone in else in the community receive this auto-update on 3/30/2016? Thank you,Rich

I bought the laptop with Win 8.1 installed. I was able to use Connectify software to tether internet connection from the ethernet to my phone through WiFi. After upgrading to Windows 10, trying to start a hotspot with the Connectify software throws the error "Your Wi-Fi adapter does not support AP mode. Please try updating the drivers for your Wi-Fi adapter". Trying to start a hotspot through command prompt using 'netsh wlan.....' throws the error "The hosted network couldn't be started. The group or resource is not in the correct state to perform the requested operation" In the device manager, Driver Name : Realtek RTL8723BE 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi AdapterDriver Version : 2023.15.701.2015Driver Date : 21-07-2015 Seems updated. But, I am still not able to start a hotspot to tether the connection. Can anyone help me solve the problem?

Answer:Wifi Adapter (RTL8723BE) not working after update to Win 10

Hi: See if the older W10 driver works instead... http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/swd/public/detail?sp4ts.oid=6943827&swItemId=ob_151589_1&swEnvOid=419... If it does, use this tool to prevent Windows update from installing the updated driver you have on there now. Use this tool to hide any updates that are messing up your PC, since there is no longer a 'hide updates' option in the W10 Windows Update programming. Not sure why the title is to 'temporarily prevent...'  I have used this tool several times and when I check to hide a particular update from showing up, I haven't seen it since. I imagine you would have to run the tool again, and uncheck the particular update and then run Windows update again in order to install the update. I have saved this tool for future use. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/3073930

I recently updated my Inspiron 14" 5459 to the Windows 10 anniversary update, i noticed that when my wifi access point changes or wifi signal drops or turning off wifi, my laptop semi-freezes, you could still scroll with the mouse or track pad and select open tabs but that's all, clicking other icons and even the windows start menu does not work, if you wait for more than 5 minutes, everything goes back to normal. Waiting around for about 5 minutes is annoying so what I do is press ctrl alt delete and from there restart the laptop. my wifi adapter is updated to the most recent version and also both graphics card (intel hd 520 and amd radeon m335) is also updated to the latest version.  Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?

Answer:after Windows 10 anniversary update, Inspiron 5459 freezes if wifi is turned off or wifi access point is changed, is there a solution to this problem?

Please confirm the wireless card from the device manger or the network control panel. Also please update the BIOS firmware to the latest version. The BIOS update should ideally be version v1.2.2. Also please try system out with  a LAN cable as well to confirm if is indeed caused by the wireless. Though this may not run a complete diagnostics on the network you can run a hardware diagnostics on the computer using the following steps

Shutdown the computer
Hold the 'Fn' key and turn on the computer
Let go of the 'Fn' key after 2 seconds

This is will initiate the H/w diagnostics. Please let us know if it completes or if  you run into any errors. If  you do run into any errors.

Hi, I've just reformatted my Inspiron N5010 laptop, reinstalled WIndows 7 and now my Wifi doesnt work. Been trolling through the web I believe the issue here is with the driver as the attachment in Device Manager. I tried clicking on Software Update but it could not find the anything online. I tried to use Dell System Detect but it says format issue until I found a post in this forum stating to install Microsoft Net Framework. Title of post is Dell System Detect (DSD) launch error. It seems to have installed but when I run DSD nothing pops up. I was hoping DSD can help me identify the right driver. Can someone please help me with DSD, or maybe help me identify the right driver required? I hope I'm on the right track to resolve the WIfi issue.

Iíve done some googling on the problem and found that people have had the same problem and fixed it by starting a new user account and updating that way but when I start a new admin account and login to it I lose my current admin account (only managing to get it back by system restore.) BTW when I login to the other admin account the update did work n found 2 updates but I didnít update because I couldnít see my login to the other account.

Just got into the flavour of windows 7 for a couple of days and I'm lovin' it.

Now, I installed Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus 64 bit on my system. Then I tried to use the Mathtype plugin 6.6a, but I cannot make it to work.

DO YOU have IE on your start menu
OR are you then right clicking on a blank area and clicking on all apps and then opening from there

2.When you say it does not connect - is that a message, as depending on how it has been used it only opens on a blank screen, but at the bottom you should see the IE symbol and the bar

Unless you are testing Windows 10 on the computer that received the update, you do not need it. The update sends information to MS about performance issues.

Hi,

I am trying to fix a problem I am having with Windows Update in Vista which I came across when searching for a printer driver towards the end of last year - it appears WU had not run since the 28/7/2012.

Not sure I understand what happened on the 28/7 but from this point forward the WindowsUpdate log file reported an error 80070424 every time & never started again.

Prior to the issue the WindowsUpdate logging process was reporting scvhost.eve & wuaueng.dll on initialisation startup , however, after this date it reported 2 consecutive but different process/modules - first newdev.exe & wudriver.dll followed by newdev.exe & wuapi.dll.

On reviewing my services it appears that the both Windows Update & BITS service are missing from my services list - I can only assume these existed before the problem arose.

Yesterday I noticed an MS forum suggesting that SP1 was no longer supported & could cause problems with WU so I downloaded Vista SP2 which appeared to run sucessfully.

Unfortunately this has not resolved the problem and the only change I can see is that no WU logfile updates are being written today.

Having reviewed a number of threads I have seen suggestions to run sfc / scannow, MS FixIT etc aswell as the removal of qmgr.dat files some directories all with mixed results.

I have held off on doing any of this as yet pending some further recommendations.

Appreciate any suggestions and an extract of the WU log file is available as ... Read more

Answer:Windows Update for Vista (64bit)

Sent earlier in error - sorry big fingers.........

I have been trying to resolve this issue for a few weeks now so would appreciate any help ?

Having reviewed previous threads on Windows Update errors I have now complete the following steps ;

1) Rolled back to Vista SP1 as SP2 did not resolve Windows Update issue

2) Run SFC /SCANNOW - CBS log reported clean apart from issue with tcpmon.ini which I read from other threads is non critical

3) Identified and created the missing BITS service (not started)

4) Checked the BITS dependant services (all identified as in place, set to manual and started)

5) Windows Update - Reset using "How to Reset & Re-register Windows Update in Windows 7 and Vista" (tutorial by Brink)

Command in batch file "Regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll" appears to be failing on my machine with the following error.

Error message - the module "qmgr.dll" was loaded but the entry point DllRegisterServer was not found.
Make sure that "qmgr.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file.

Windows Update at least now appears to find updates to download but once 'install updates' selected the program hangs & error 8008005 is still reported in the WindowsUpdate log.

I continued on as outlined.......

Answer:Windows 10 64bit can't working with my laptop

Hi, you only need a 64bit OS when you have more than 4Gb RAM - or if you plan to add more RAM of course.

Perhaps your thinking about 2.89Gb comes from part of your RAM being shared with a video card, or used by integrated graphics.

For example see

did a clean install of 64bit Pro edition on a custom built box with Intel w/station board & RAID1 mirror. All was ok. However, during operation, number of things are happening:
* cannot run Windows Update (can go to CPanel, once I click WU, the 'doughnut' keeps on spinning. Tried deleting relevant cached folders for WU to recreate but still the same issue...cannot access WU screen.
* the only way to exit from 'doughnut' is to end from taskmgr (where it says WU is running); ending task this way 'crashes' Explorer.
* as such there are applications that require to pre-install .net framework cannot proceed as it is relying on Windows Update. WU service is started; if somehow Windows Update menu opens up, it has a message 'reboot computer as WU has never been run on this pc with big red X'
* The Network icon shows 'X' in tray however it's connected to Internet & LAN
* Did register with genuine OEM key and Windows is successfully activated (evident from System Information page) however there's frequent message saying 'activate now' as you are not running genuine Windows, trial to expire.
Because have set this pc as file sharing, am dreading to re-install OS as some applications installed are business critical.
any suggestions would be really helpful.

Haven't found another thread covering this, so I apologize in advance if this question is elsewhere.

Last night I downloaded the 1/11 Windows Update patches for my 64 bit Home Premium OS. Left it alone overnight, and today I have no video.

Questions:
I'm running dual monitors (monitor + television) from the EVGA GeForce 9800 GTX+. Could I have toasted the graphics card?

Power off and rebooting doesn't do anything. No beep. Can't get into safe mode or the BIOS. Is this a CMOS issue?

Won't run off boot disc either. What's going on? Any other routes to safe mode?

Thanks.
Brandon

Answer:No boot up and no video after 1/11 Windows Update 64bit

Hi & welcome,

First, How do you know it doesn't boot? Did you watch the HDD activity light & see if it goes throught the procees (Loads of flashing activity).

I would swap the graphics card for a known working one, then see if that boots & displays. If so, delete the hidden graphics card in device manager & then swap them back, to see what that has achieved.

If that achieves nothing (second card is good), I would then suggest the original card is fried.

If swapping the card also fails to? (Don't know why that would be).

Then I think you have toasted your motherboard but that seems un-believable & a little excessive for an update!

As a last thought, try swapping your power supply!

And the main problem is if i can do clean install Windows10 without formatting my other drives except "Local disk:C" because I have a lot of files on them.
Can anyone give me a step by step guide for clean installing by formatting my current "C" drive only please...

Answer:Update a dual boot Windows 7 32bit to Windows 10 64bit

Be careful - clean installing Windows 10 will probably break the dual boot mechanism as it does not recognise Linux.

General advice is to start with a fresh drive, install Windows 10, then linux.

It can be done the other way, but no expert, especially as you already have Windows 7.

You should make a full image backup of your drives eg using Macrium Reflect Free which will backup Linux partitions as well.

I cannot update windows, Before I went through the hijack this process I could see that I had about 10 windows updates (not including office updates) that needed downloading but wouldnt, Now I cant even get to that screen when I go to the windows update page I get the message " Files required to use Windows Update are no longer registered or installed on your computer".

I purchased my HP Pavilion a6532f in 2009 and it came preloaded with Windows Vista. It has an AMD Athlon X2 CPU, 3gb RAM, and shows that it supports 64bit OS. I plan on upgrading to 8gb of RAM, I can get this working. Since Microsoft will no longer support Vista soon, I installed Windows 7 64bit (did not upgrade since you can't do an upgrade from 32-64bit). The install completed with no glitches and installed all my drivers. My problem is with Windows Update. It never stops seaching, even after 8 hrs.  I start the "Windows update" as normal, but it never finishes searching. I have already tried the 3 methods listed here - Windows Update Never Stops Looking for Updates. I have installed KB3102810 and KB3135445. All this to no avail.  Any help is appreciated.

I can't install, uninstall or update Internet Explorer.

Errors from windows update:
Code 9C48
&
Code 9C57

I've been trying literally for 3 days straight from the time I get up to the time I go to sleep to try to fix this. I don't usually post on forums about this type of thing but I really need to fix this. Internet Explorer is of course, pre-installed on my OS.

A new job (I'm a freelancer) requires me to use Internet Explorer to activate a program (Autodesk 3dsmax) -- the activation screen doesn't show up!!

In any case, thats another problem all together but to fix that I need to fix Internet Explorer, and to fix Internet Explorer I need to fix the Windows Updater & to fix that.. I do what? I've tried every single thing possible.

So I'm probably going to need a more customized solution. I'm not sure what could fix my specific problem.

Extremely sorry to have to ask for help & thank you in advance. Even if it can't be fixed I'm extremely grateful for any help or advice that can be given.

Its important I find a way to fix this fast since I'm so behind on work now, so even if theres a regular user that has any good information - anything thats fairly well hidden, tips, tricks anything -- I'd be really happy to hear it.

Hi,

After months of patience and following the drivers-info on the Toshiba website,i found it was time to replaced my Vista32 Ultimate with Windows7 Ultimate. It seemed that all drivers now have a 64bit version working under Windows 7, the missing drivers/software could be replace with the Vista 64bit versions. Unfortunately i got some problems with the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner.

Just searched a couple of ours for a sollution to the TOSHIBA PCI DVB-T/Analog TV Hybrid Tuner (x64) problem with Windows 7. In hardware manager it shows an yellow triangle with an exclamation mark, telling me that there is a problem with the device. Via properties i get an error with code(39).

I have downloaded the drivers from the Toshiba website which returns the following files:

TISDBT1A64.inf
TISDBT1A64.sys
and an additional 'setISDBTDriverParameters'-regkey.

1) When i try to replace the drivers by via the properties in devicemanager, i get a message back that the best drivers are already installed and there is no better driver found.

2) Install manually
There are no instructions to install the downloaded files, nor the regkey. When i try to install the 'inf' file with rightclick, i get a installationerror the the selected inf-file does not suppoert this installationmethod.

Hello,

I have a peculiar problem with aero peek. It sometimes just decides not to work anymore, and only shows labels instead of a preview. This is only temporary, because when I switch between other windows, the aero peek is activated again. I actually reproduced this behavior by switching to this post, and writing for 1-2 minutes. Hovering now only produced labels/tooltips. By switching to another window, aero was "activated" again.

I have tried the "Find and fix problems with transparency and other visual effects", but Windows couldn't find any problems

I have had a massive HDD failure. I found a spare 250Gb and installed a copy of windows 7 Ultimate 64bit on it. Sadly I don't own windows 8 or 8.1 that my laptop was designed for. So my question is ther anyway to get drivers for this laptop using 7 64bit os? I know I can get the amd apu driver via amd.com but not sure about the rest. Most important one is my wireless and USB 3.0 drivers. But all would be best. I have looked in official drivers but only 8 and 8.1 drivers made for this computer.

Hi everyone,

Im new here and registered because i am at a total loss

I recently aquired Windows 7 Installation cd and tried to install it o n my CPU:

Processor: AMD Athlon x2 2.60 GHz
Motherboard: Biostar A690M2+
VGA: Sapphire Radeon HD 4670
GRAM: 2x 2GB RAM

Now the problem is that the 32bit version of windows 7 works flawless with my system but the 64bit just wont work with my HD 4670...

I found out that its the HD 4670 because i tried installing windows 7 64bit with minimal RAM and onboard VGA. Then i put the pieces together 1 by 1 and booted windows to test which piece was the culprit...
After i put the HD 4670 in for the first time Windows 7 64Bit boots normally, but once it recognizes the VGA and installs a driver, after i reboot it hangs at the startup and gives me a Bluescreen with an unreadable error message, its unreadable because it rebooots too fast for me to actually read the Bluescreen message

I tried booting in safemode and disabling the HD 4670 in device manager, using driver sweeper and then installing the newest drivers but same result, after i reboot windows would restart itself on startup and give me Bluescreen

Pls note that it works fine in 32bit and that im a total CPU noob so pls refrain from any shortterms

Thanks in Advance

Answer:Ideapad U310 Windows 7 64bit, YouCam not working

hi vtrakroo,
 
The Lexmark X422 that you're seing is likely the scanner from your Lexmark printer (the built-in camera should usually be listed as Lenovo Easy Camera or similar)
  - Sample image
 
Things that you can try:
1. Boot into the BIOS by pressing F2 (or Fn+F2). In the BIOS, press F9 (or Fn+F9) to load setup defaults then press F10 (or Fn+F10) to save and exit.
    - this procedure will refresh all hardware components in the system
 
2. Inside Windows, check if you have an Unknown Device in the Other Devices section. If you have this, follow this guide on how to identify the device (or post the Hardware ID here)
    - Sample image
 
3. Reinstall the camera driver
   - Camera Driver (Bison, Chicony, Awazu) for Microsoft Windows 7 (32-bit, 64-bit)
 
 
Let me know how it goes.

Just picked up a Corsair Voyager GT 16GB USB 3.0

Plugged it into USB 3.0 port, my Intel Win8 PC did not like it, just said there was a problem with the device. Managed to solve the problem on Intel Win8 pc by installing some Renesas USB3.0 drivers.

However, I have the same issue on my new AMD build (see sig) also using Win8 64bit too. The renesas drivers do not work as that motherboard does not use renesas usb 3 controller. I tried one or two others as well, including an old Win7 one for AMD boards with no luck.

Have flashed the BIOS to latest version, and installed latest drivers and firmware for it - well kind of, you have to run the Setup.exe for the Gigabyte F2X85A motherboard in Windows 7 compatibility mode, if I try and run normally, it says O/S not supported!

Very shoddy Win8 support for some chipset and USB drivers. But if anyone can find a solution i'd be VERY happy.

I aldready posted this elsewhere on the forums, but then noticed that topic was located it was in the Tutorials section. Since it's pretty urgent to me I also created this topic.

Recently I upgraded from Win7 x86 to x64 (professional), but I can't get Windows Mail to work. I got a copy of a working 64bit version (from another computer) of Windows Mail but it won't work on my system, giving this error: 0x8007000E. I Googled it dozens of times but can't get to a solution, most of the results are related to Vista, 32bit and/or other software applications.

My housemate also has a Win7 64bit system, so I already tried copying my Windows Mail to his computer to see if it's corrupt or something alike, but it's not. It totally works on his computer.

Answer:Windows Mail 64bit not working (0x8007000E or no icons)

Can you tell us how you got Windows Mial on Windows 7? According to this Windows Mail isn't included with Windows 7 - Looking for Windows Mail? You'll have to use Windows Live Mail.

I know I don't have Windows Mail on my system, I do however have Live Mail, though I don't use it.

Am I missing something?

Actaully why can't you just use Live Mail? Doing the hack and crack thing with Windows Mail isn't going to work too well as you've seen.
