    Sorry also, same deal for me, long day. I see your other post now, lost track of what thread I was in for a second.

    I tried to go to the Tesco site, page loads for a second or two then just opens a blank page? I can't access their site? Check the manual to see if it details the hardware. Of check the drivers listed on the Tesco site for hints of what they are for. Example Realtek for audio etc.

    I've pretty much tore the Internet apart looking for anything useful! I see the images above detailing devices but haven't had any luck. Bloody thing doesn't even register the battery so I'm constantly unsure how long I have before the tablet dies.

    Aye, no luck on the tesco site for anything useful. I did a driver scan with one of those tools that make you pay after the scan, but it didn't detect the touch screen at all so i figure the don't have the drivers.

    I've tried a few other tablet drivers, linx 7,etc. again no luck!

    You may have to go back to the OS it came with. If you want a fully functioning device.

    If it was Windows 8 or 8.1, you can get install media here, Create installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help That install media will use 8.0 and 8.1 keys, even OEM embedded keys. You jst have to know the correct matching version for you product code to work.

    I don't mind going back to windows 8.1 with bing - what it came with. But I still think I'll have the same issue to lack of driver availability. Do you know how to scan for all hardware ids?

    Trouble is that the embedded key will be for '8.1 With Bing' but last time I looked, the installation media creator which alphanumeric mentioned doesn't work with those keys.

    I've put the drivers (saved using DISM) into my onedrive - link on the other thread..

    Yeah "with Bing" is PITA to find. I can't even get it from MSDN.
