Issue with Windows 8 so far

October 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Moving on a few days in, the interface is ok and im generally happy with the OS

the trust mouse is still not working and the Garmin FR70 is struggling to pair with the ANT + stick, ive downloaded most of the files but pairing is an issue a bit like the bluetooth mouse

so we move on see what happens

garmin files HERE garmin installed fine after a little play with settings on the other hand im back again 3rd November looking for the fix i guess they will have it sorted by the releaase versions some info HERE 

info here it works on the 370 mini card FINALLY success

Go to http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS031999&rss=true (ok its lenovo but it works)

Download & install “Broadcom Bluetooth 4.0 Driver”

current driver is = 6.2.9200.16420 (21.06.06)  finally got it updated to the latest driver after some messing and searching 2.2.12 ‘~ 12.0.0.10

 

TRIAL OVER: verdict for me windows 8 is a step up from 7 but not worth the money over LINUX for me at this stage, only downside you can’t upgrade from the trial version you need to re install (eg clean install) MINT 13 MAYA back on the laptop for a bit 🙂 onwards to 2013
