    Uninstalled and the same problem happens, and I did do a clean install cause I installed windows 8 again instead of 10 but I'll have a read of that thanks for your help

    Sorry, I guess you can't rule out it being the hardware even though everything looks good in Device Manager. Good luck and let us know if you get it sorted out.

    Well that was strange for it to still show up as functioning in Device Manager but good to hear you got it fixed.
