I’m tying to install the drivers for the Uno on my little netbook an older Lenovo s10 that has a fresh install of Windows 7 32 bit. When I plug the board in it does not show up under ports but under unknown / other devices, I’ve tried to select it and install the drivers manually but windows always says it was unable to install the driver. Download the driver from the USB chip provider webssite too that fails also.
I’m having a terrible time with windows 7 and the Arduino software, one out of three PC machines works, this one a driver problem and another machine a NEW Lenove g460 crashes the Arduino software each time it’s launched! Ok I could use my Mac but that would be too easy!
(perhaps I’ll pull out my old G4 tower and use that)
