    Windows 8.1


    Well I tried drivermax, it found and downloaded the driver. Nothing happened, the mouse still has a yellow exclamation next to it... I am thinking of just reinstalling one more time, if that does not help I will go back down to 7 I guess.....

    Did you restart after installing the driver ?

    Driver Max will automatically rollback a new driver if it doesn't work.

    Yours installed.
    It should be ok.

    What do you see in device manager when you right click mouse & click Properties ?

    Hmm, that got me thinking.

    To answer your question, yes that is what it was showing.

    After that I went into the other devices section, this is where the G500 was showing. I did a local install, using the windows script, it had the G500 driver included as one of the choices. I checked that and let it run. So this time I get a message, windows cannot start this driver and it is showing me "this device cannot start code 10" in the driver tab similar to the one you screen shotted. I am going to roll back that driver from drivermax and try this again, just to see if the same thing happens. I have a feeling it is fwiw...

    Googling this did lead me to a post about maybe the register being corrupted. Something about "UpperFilters and LowerFilters." I am going to mess around on google and see if I can get any good leads here...

    You have any clue about error code 10? Sounds like a generic code though....

    Hey thanks for the help here, I bit the bullet and juts reformated. So far so good but I am just waiting for it to break again here. I have a feeling I will be back again or just go back to Windows 7 until 10 is released.

    Cheers!
