My cpu won’t let me update the drivers. It says the drivers are up to date and the w2 displays as Realtek Kylin 32-bit OTT. The usb mp tool won’t recognize my w2

file system is read only. and no HDMI output. How can i fix it?

Hello, when you update the usb driver , you can choose the item that install the driver by yourself, then you could search the usb driver files on your computer by yourself, and do not use computer to automatically search.


(Justin) #6

I have done just that but it won’t load the new drivers. It’s like it doesn’t recognize any drivers in the downloads at all


(ZB) #7

Could you please try to burn image again in another sd card to compare it?


#8

Second time it started. But only with HDMI and all usb devices disconnected(mouse and keyboard). after reboot no more HDMI output


#9

may I know the pi password? I tried “bananapi” but failed


(ZB) #10

#15

Same log. Im currently far from the board. al the time see [_AO_if_video_HDMI_mode]HDMI not enabled [FAILED] if hdmi cable is plugged in


(Justin) #16

Will do, thank you for taking the time to help me with this Jack


(Justin) #17

I downloaded the kylin file again and retried the process but my computer still isn’t recognizing any drivers for the w2 in those files for some reason


#18

Have you unpacked them from zip?


(Justin) #19

Yes and then I unpacked the actual drivers for Windows 7


#20
  • I have plugged w2 to my laptop via usb-c (w2 powered from laptop via same cable at this point)
  • win 10 device manager said unknown device
  • update driver -> let me pick one manually -> selected folder as seen in screenshots (unzipped win10 drivers in there first, but zipped version was there as well)
  • update went well
  • device manager said ‘realtec generic usb device’ (details said ‘code 45 - device not plugged in now’ or sth like that)

at this point I have continued with SPI flash guide

  • started tool - android icon showed up (even when device manager still said code 45 as above …)
  • flashing went well
  • issued command as in guide via uart session
  • rebooted with sw4 on 1
  • saw latest date on SPI rom as in guide

maybe you are looking for issue where there is none…
