1  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Drivers won't install Windows 8 help? on: January 04, 2013, 09:12:53 pm
I took my computer back to Best Buy for a refund.  Turns out Acer computers have a problem with windows 8.  I don't know about all Acer computers, but some of them will not let you use the function "disable driver signature enforcement" with windows 8.  Found that out because I tried several different Acer computers and all of the ones I tried did not allow me to use this function or any of the other 9 functions on that menu.  I did try several different computer brands and they worked fine.

I called Best Buy, where the computer was purchased from, they told me that the version of windows 8 loaded on the computer is a 64 bit full version of windows 8.  I'm going to take the computer back.  The "disable driver enforcement" function should work and it does not.  At least I can not get it to work. They also told me I could pay to have someone take a look at the computer.  I told them it would be cheaper for me to just return the computer and get a new one.  I may just go back to using windows 7 on my desk top.  That computer works fine with the Arduino.

I tried to go through the process for disabling driver signature enforcement, but after choosing that option my computer just shuts down.  When I start the computer back up I'm still faced with the same problem.  The arduino drivers will not load.  I don't know what to do?  Help!
