When you apply any of the large Windows 10 OS updates it always seems to mess up the Kionix drivers. The rotation bug is different though as rotation will work only after you turn the screen on and off again.

We need new 32-bit drivers from Intel and maybe a BIOS update too. That's what a lot of other tablets received for the creators update (1703).

Exertis asked me what BIOS version I'm using (LINX8.RL221.03.03_1, 21/10/2014) and they haven't said anything since then.

It seems this power issue is not limited to Linx tablets.



I suppose this is good news as it should mean a fix is more likely?

It turns out to fix touchscreen issue only needs a couple of registry edits to fix the problem.

See my first post for more details.

Yeah, I've actually created an updated driver pack and a fix for the Linx 8. I'll upload it within the next day or two.

I didn't actually look at post #1.

Although you might of figured out how to work around the issue, Windows 10 (16299.15) will also change a bunch of Intel drivers and that causes problems. I didn't want to use drivers that were designed for Windows 8 from 2014, so I've made something that uses newer drivers and fixes everything. My benchmarks increased slightly too.

I look forward to trying the drivers. I have had no driver issues yet as far as I can tell.

Sorry this taken a little longer than I said it would. I wanted to check that my code worked correctly from a fresh install.
  • All of the drivers are digitally signed
  • The touchscreen works correctly
  • The accelerometer works correctly

Code: Select all

I'm only sharing this here because Exertis doesn't seem to support the Linx 8 anymore.

All of the scripts were created by me and I give nobody permission to put my work behind a paywall.

OK, so I used link and it seemed to work. Only problem is I checked drivers in device management and it is not obvious if they have been updated. Can you tell me what drivees have been instaloed, date etc. so I can confirm they have been installed ok.

Things seem to be working fine though.
