"The device cannot start" (Code 10), a totally worthless and uninformative error message.
STATUS_DEVICE_POWER_FAILURE I replaced the batteries and still get this message.
The driver is up to date; I checked for new drivers. Windows troubleshooting is absolutely worthless, and I could not find relevant information with a Google search.
Try uninstalling it in Device Manager. Reboot and let Windows rediscover it.
Search for the error message--lots of hits about this including hardware failure.
Hi Bill Levinson,
Thanks for posting.
Here are some articles that you may wish to try.
If you are still having issues, please post back so the experts here can respond. Thanks.
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/811798 relates to Window 7, and my tablet is running 8.1
I did try "If the link is not reestablished, use Control Panel to remove the device, and then try to add the device again," and it did not work. (Actually, I removed the driver and let Windows re-discover the device.)
The second link is for XP.
I did what the third link said, and it did not work.
None of what you posted worked.
Should I try a new keyboard? If I have to buy one, though, I will have to write the product I have a poor recommendation at Amazon and elsewhere. I generally expect things I buy to last more than a year or so before they stop working.
Your post doesn't seem to list the model or where you purchased it. Could you provide more details about the product and the device you are pairing it with? Thanks.
It's a Dell tablet keyboard, to go with a Dell Venue.
However, I was actually able to pair it with my tablet yesterday (after I bought a larger Logitech keyboard to determine whether the tablet was the problem--it worked as well).
