[Q] Marvell sd8686 LAN SDIO not working... also webcam
This applies to a specific device not on these forums but running Windows 8 I upgraded from Windows 7 on my Viliv N5 and now the webcam and a "Marvell 802.11 sd8686 Wireless LAN SDIO" won't start... I checked both online and computer manufacture... I got drivers from the computer manufacture that hard reboots and one from online with: "Error code:10 Device Cannot Start" As for the webcam I might have to call the now shutdown business so I'm hoping for a fix...
Did you do an in-place upgrade, or did you do a clean install that replaced Win7? In-place is supposed to work, but in my experience it almost never does it perfectly. Clean install is the way to go. Copy your driver files to a flashdrive or something first in case Win8 can't find them, but usually it can. Alternate option: Uninstall theoffending drivers (entirely; use Device Manager and remove the driver software). Then reboot the PC and see if it tries to load the drivers from Windows Update. This *should* find them. If it doesn't, try installing the drivers from disc / downloaded files.
Tried Windows Update as soon as I did a CLEAN install... wiped HDD incl recovery >.< I can provide device id... and the website gives me a corrupt driver Edit: Will do a "Dirty Install" if I reinstall stock will my key expire?
