OK the driver issue!
Now, Prokennexusa already has prepared two excellent tutorials here on this First Aide Site that may help you with the drivers. They tell you how to clear-out or delete the old drivers, and even provide you with working good copies of the drivers!
I have used these methods and they work (at least for a while
So, here are the "post#" (look at the upper right corner of each post to see the post number!)
Please go back to POST#s:
#119: Covers the adb drivers and links to the drivers
#339: Provides pictures on the process!
#1686: For instructions on how to delete and install
In this post Prokennexusa provide information on driver installation. He also provides links (THAT STILL WORK!) to ADB Drivers and Alternative ADB drivers. Please read that post and download both sets of drivers. However, just in case you miss them I also have provided his own links here:
Amazon Provided ADB Drivers:
Prokennexusa Alternative drivers:
IF this is too abstract, Prokennexusa also has posted almost the same information with pictures for what you should see during each step.
lbeau, Please try these and see if you can get your Kindle Fire HD drivers correctly working…Who knows, you may be able to do some fixing yet
For instructions on how to delete and install (again). This post is clear in tell us the steps to delete OLD drivers.
It also explains (again) how to make Windows show you any HIDDEN Kindle Fire HD drivers -even if the Kindle Fire HD is not connected!
Revealing hidden drivers is a necessary and great option! It is very helpful if you have old drivers that simply don't seem to work, but that get in the way!
OK That's a lot of reading and downloading and working on windows --but I wish you luck!
P.S. After you try these steps, you may have more repair options, but if not, go ahead and look for a post by Prokennexusa and see if he has a link for a message or to open a "Trouble Ticket" and it will help focus him to contact you about fixing your kindle when they get the files moved over, the links updated and the package ready for showtime again
