1)-Goto Device manager >view by connection > Enabled GPS driver

2)-If possible, use Notepad to create 2 registry files LogOn and NetworkloOn as below:

2-1) LogOn.reg

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Broadcom\Location\HAL]
"LogEnabled"=dword:1

2-2) NetworkIoOn.reg

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Broadcom\Location\HAL]
"NetworkIoEnableMask"=dword:FFFFFFFF

3)-Click to run the 2 registry above.

4)-Find a clear location > Reboot your laptop > Run software Sensor Diagnostic Tool .

5)-Don't worry about "The pipe is closed " > wait for 2-3 minutes > the yellow "Initializing" will turn green "Ready".

6)-You may repeat step (4) with or without reboot.

(*) Good luck!
