  • deaniac,

    I am sorry to hear about your issue, you might try to install the drivers in compatibility mode to see if that resolves the problem.

    You can do this by:

    ·         Enter the Start screen

    ·         Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section

    ·         Select Search

    ·         Type Compatibility

    ·         Click Settings in the right column

    ·         Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

    ·         Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver.

    Please post back with your results.
