i am trying to get evrything to work with my newly repaired windows 10 laptop. i have installed and used the ide and the arduinos themselves fine on 2 other laptops, but with this one, only my mega 2560 (and copy) work.
the uno is recognised as a device, but when attempting to install drivers, i browse to the file, and tell it to install the driver, but it seems that the drivers included in the .zip file on the downloads page arent being recognised as drivers by my computer, and it wont install. the message i get back is 'windows could not find drivers for your device' after being directed to the downloaded and unzipped file.
the nano works fine on other computers, but this computer doesnt even recognise that anything has been plugged in. nothing.
i have uninstalled, deleted, redownloaded, and reinstalled the ide (and made another attempt at installing the drivers through device manager), restarted the computer multiple times, checked the hardware still works on another comupter, to rule out them as the cause of the problem, tried all ports on the computer, and they all work only with the megas
im kinda stuck, i can normally handle installing drivers myself, but this seems to be beyond me. all help appreciated. thanks in advance
please note, i'm visually impared, and if your response contains images or anything not detectable by a standard screen reader, please give a text description to help me figure out what im looking at, thanks
