This device cannot start. (Code 10)

    Question

  • Hello! I recently installed the new win 8 beta and I am excited about it so far, but there is only one issue that I experience in the win 8 beta that I did not experience in windows 7 pro. The issue is this error that appearing in the device manager for the device adapters (my AMD Radeon HD 6490M series video card device) <This device cannot start. (Code 10)> and I have been googling for hours in order to find a solution but I can't find any solution that fix this problem. I have updated bios, uninstalled the device in order to let the computer rediscover the partitian, I have installed drivers manually and automatically (With MS update and downloaded files from hp driver download) and I have checked bios for options such as vga\dvi options. Is there a spesific thing that I must do in order to fix this problem?

  • It's for my AMD Radeon HD 6490M series video card device. In general it says <This device cannot start. (Code 10)> and under resources it says <This device isn't using any resources because it has a problem>

    It's not a beta.  It is a "consumer preview".  Windows 8 is not even to the
    beta stage yet.

    It did not occur to you to mention what device is causing this?
     
    Did you try to install an older driver, perhaps?  Did you move from 32-bit
    to 64-bit?  On the other hand, it's entirely possible you simply found a
    bug.  This is, after all, a pre-beta preview.

  • I have tried installing and older driver and I have also tried to move from 32-bit to 64-bit. I gues it's very possible that it's just a bug.

  • try the latest drivers which are supposedly compatible with the win8 consumer preview, http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/Windows8ConsumerPreviewDrivers.aspx
