    If it is to long then you will have to zip it or find a site to download it to & let me know where !


    There are other programs that will be added after your response on what these logs/reports have produced ! So just because they didn't find anything bad it could be still hiding !

  4. Hey Brian, i am also a Tech dating back when the old 3.1 came out ! I still have that machine ! I have also had all the Operating system MS has ever came out with, I have been using Windows 11 Beta testing it & giving MS my thoughts on some of the new apps & programs ! I must say i don't like a few but over all i am very impressed with W11. There will be a newer version as soon as MS can get it out to everyone ! Sometime  between now (5th Oct.) and 2022 mid summer ! Windows 10 they are leaving it alone for 4 yrs. then it will go by the way side like W7 !!!

    You take care Brian & Be Safe !!


  5. Howdy Russell18 and welcome to BestTechie forums ! The number one fix for this is usually a bad driver ! So let's start there.

    1. Press Windows key + R to open up a Run dialog box. Then, inside the text box, type “dvmgmt.msc” and press Enter to open up Device Manager. If prompted by the UAC (User Account Control), click Yes to grant admin privileges, Once you’re inside Device Manager, right-click on the device that is causing the issue and choose Properties from the newly appeared context menu.

    • Inside the properties screen, select the Events tab, then go over to the Events section.
    • Analyze each Timestamp carefully and see which one has the newest date. That point is the one that you should be looking at (not the first).
    • Note: If one of the latest Timestamps has a Device Installed description, it most likely means that the driver for that device installed successfully and there’s nothing wrong with it.

    • If you’ve followed the instructions above to confirm that you’re looking at the correct TimeStamp and you confirmed that the latest Event is showing ‘Device requires further installation !

    • Once you’re inside Device Manager, go through the list of available devices and right-click on the one that you’re encountering issues with. Then, choose Update device from the newly appeared context menu.

    • That should update the bad driver !!
