10″ Windows 10 Fusion5 WiFi Driver
I have had to re install Windows 10 Home on a 10″ Windows 10 Fusion5 Ultra Slim Windows Tablet PC– (4GB RAM, 64GB Storage)
I have no touchpad – Keyboard etc, I do have 23 conflicts in device manager.
The main 1 for now is a WiFi driver, I have searched the internet, most offer links for driver updater/s I have tried a few they all want to access the internet. I have snappy driver and it wants to access the internet.
I get no further as I need a driver to access the internet.

Sorted, after having a brain wave.
Maybe remove this thread (wasting space)

Rather than removing the thread, put the solution in for anyone else who might have the same problem in the future :)July 28, 2019 at 8:31 am #35259
Only part solution
I sat here thinking I could try a wifi dongle (to at least connect to the net & update) this worked.
Sadly Windows update only fixed 15 conflicts. It seems I still have 8 conflicts, no touch pad / keyboard / onboard wifi and ? unknown, these can’t be updated as unknown.

John I had a look at your tablet ports and it’s mini USB 3, same as most phones are now. I have the mini USB 2 version of this flash drive:
Which ought to enable you to look for the drivers on your PC or laptop, then copy them via USB to your tablet. Unfortunately I also found this link, which has some advice you will not like concerning the effect of a recent Windows 10 update.
If it’s still under warranty, you might be able to return it for either refund or repair, but from the looks of my second link, the manufacturer does seem aware of the issue and is not helpful. If you bought it from Amazon or Ebay and it is still under warranty, I would advise requesting a refund. It looks like Win 10 updates break it. Sorry!
EDIT: Found the website and you can download the User Manual in PDF, which might help:

I checked your links, to find it’s a major prob.
I have never not known a manufacturer web not having drivers. I joined Fusion 5 it’s ok if you want to purchase something.
It was from Amazon, I have contacted the seller about drivers, I await a reply.
Some one must have drivers for it as they worked from new.
The USB is a standard port (not mini) I had snappy driver on USB and run it, it kept going over and over and finally said
due to a virus.
I deleted it from the USB and dl a fresh version of Snappy Driver yet to try it. I am waiting till Win Ups Finishes
then try snappy.
Thanks for the links (much appreciated)

You may get somewhere by searching for your unknown devices by their device ID.
To find the ID open device manager and right click on an unknown device and choose properties. Open the details tab and then select hardware IDs from the properties drop down list.
Every plug and play device (all of them these days) must have an ID and Googling should find the manufacturer and device type at least ?July 28, 2019 at 7:10 pm #35282
I will give it a go.

If there is more than 1 ID then Google the top one first.
The IDs are long alpha numeric strings and as an example here is the ID for the Realtek network chip in my Mum’s PC.
PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8168&SUBSYS_368D17AA.July 28, 2019 at 7:23 pm #35284
If anyone is interested (it could be just me ?) the device ID splits down into Bus type, Vendor, Device type and model number with a possible subtype after that.July 28, 2019 at 7:30 pm #35285
That’ll help thanks Graham
Can’t get at it at the mo, updating to 1809 then others including 1903.

You’re welcome John.
Graham, that’s not just you, I should have known that too, used it before.

Graham gave you the best advice. Often there will be chipset drivers even where the OEM cant be bothered. Broadcom for example are usually pretty good at supplying device drivers.July 28, 2019 at 8:18 pm #35288
I had a peak in device manager/unknown/prpoerties and found this sereial io 12c es controller
I put it in a search and ended up scanning with Itel 1 update installing?
I will check all laters
JohnJuly 28, 2019 at 8:21 pm #35289
cheers Ed (we had overflow)
JohnJuly 28, 2019 at 8:56 pm #35290
I dl and installed sereial io 12c es controller, I got excited and went beck to the other (now) 5 conflicts.
They all are the same sereial io 12c es controller? + the unknown conflict I did is still unkown conflict?

Make certain you install drivers as a full Administrator. (i.e select an Administrator account when you boot). Promoting a User to Administrator frequently results in bad driver installs.July 28, 2019 at 9:41 pm #35294
Did you get your driver from the above site ?July 28, 2019 at 9:51 pm #35296
The above link may be of interest too.July 28, 2019 at 10:07 pm #35298
If the Intel serial I/O device isnt working then anything attached to it will not be recognised, it will just show up as being attached to the serial I/O device with its identity a mystery.
Once the serial I/O device is working then Windows may find drivers for all the devices connected to it.
In technical terms the serial I/O device is a bus controller and it is responsible for enumerating all the plug and play devices attatched to it.July 28, 2019 at 10:29 pm #35299
In even more tedious detail, once a bus controller has enumerated all its attached devices it passes the list on to the Windows plug and play manager which cofigures them to use available system resourses and loads their drivers.
