Surface Pro 3 / "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter"

Hi all,
I've been running the Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926) on my Surface Pro 3 successfully
since January. Unfortunately, I lost all internet connectivity today.
The problem started when I noticed the type cover wasn't working (pressing keys on the type
cover wasn't registering any typing on my screen) and my USB mouse wasn't working either. I tried removing and reattaching the type keyboard but this didn't fix the issue. I had to use the accessibility on-screen keyboard to sign into Windows (thankfully touch
was still working). Once I signed in, I still didn't have typing or cursor ability, so I decided to restart the computer.
Then it got worse. I noticed the Surface Pro 3 was stuck on "restarting" and wouldn't
actually restart. Since it wasn't responding, I held down the power button for about 10 seconds until it turned off. When I turned it back on, the type cover and mouse started working again.
Unfortunately, this is when the WIFI problems began. I had WIFI for a few seconds, and then
I lost internet. I disconnected/reconnected but there was a yellow triangle telling me there was some sort of problem. So I restarted the Surface Pro 3.
When it came back on, there were suddenly NO connections available at all. Opening the "Network
& Internet" settings page gave me the message "Windows did not detect a properly installed network adapter". And here I am, without internet on my Surface Pro 3, borrowing my friend's computer so I can type this message (he is also running
Windows 10 build 9926 on his laptop and is able to connect to my WIFI with no problems, whereas my Surface Pro 3 cannot even detect any networks). I have not dropped or damaged the SP3 in any way, and there have been no storms or power outages or anything
of that sort. Any ideas what could have happened to the WIFI on my Surface Pro 3?
Thanks for your help...
Ethan

Hi Ethan,
Currently, there are a few compatibility issue between the current hardware and Windows 10 Technical Preview (9926 build), this is mostly related to driver compatibility issue.
I suggest you download the latest network adapter driver package to install, when it is finished, check if it appears under Device Manager.
Surface Pro 3, Surface Pro 2, and Surface Pro firmware and driver packs
https://www.microsoft.com/surface/en-us/support/networking-and-connectivity/install-wireless-drivers
You can check if you can install the latest firmware package for your device.
Here is an article to talk about such things:

  • Yoga 2 did not detect a properly installed network adapter

    Woke up this morning, turned my yoga 2 on, no WiFi.  So I used the troublsheeter and it told me there was no properly installed network adapter.  Does that mean my wifi card is dead?  Anyone else have an issue like this and find a solution (besides replacing a dead card?)
    I did:
    1) reinstalle drivers via usb from another machine
    2) used a system restore point from a few days ago
    Neither action had any effect.

    Well I just set it to airplane mode and while I had no wifi it never told me that there was no network adapter cofigured.
    Also, when you set it to airplane mode the wifi signal icon changes from bars to an airplane.
    I think the adapter must have stopped working and then.. started working again.  I can't figure out what else it could be.

  • Windows did not detect any networking hardware, Windows 7, New Hard Drive

    Message "Windows did not detect any networking hardware"
    Satellite P505 S8980 Windows 7 Home Premium.
    I replaced the Toshiba 500 GB HD with 500 GB Seagate.
    Device Manager icon for any device with yellow exclamation mark,
    Click on "Update Driver".  Lan eNet details as follows:
    Antheo - R8132 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.20)
    Browse to the folder where the setup program has the driver...
    Message: "The best driver software is already installed."
    (But the yellow exclamation mark still harasses me.)
    --- Go to "Setup new connection" ---
    "Choose a connection option"
    Click on "Connect to the Internet"
    Response: "Windows did not detect networking hardware"
    As near as I can tell, that translates from error 0x8E5E0247
    I have this same error on other yellow exclamation marks respective of what kind of device it is.
    => To test my sanity, I put the old hard drive (same size) back in and except for the impact of slowness due to error retries, everything works okay.
    Note:
    Same issue (hardware not detected) for Video adapter and Audio.
    I bought new USB Wireless adapter to test, and the driver installed but not activated because "not digitally signed", and that same issue fits all the above hardware.  I down loaded them from Toshiba, and they are confirmed installed, but not accepted with digitally signed.  I have uninstalled and reinstalled with same results.
    Solved!
    Go to Solution.

    I'm discovering I am not as well as I thought... running on the  AF hard drive which was built with a copy drive from old format drive which was the product of system recovery disc set.
    Review for context: Advanced Function HDD
    Scenario that exposes harm caused by cloning data from 4K blocks drive to 512 bytes blocked drive (AF)
    Toshiba supplied Windows-7 System Restore Discs: to factory state
    Then I built the Windows-7 Repair  Disc... used later.
    Hard drive was replaced when it caused SMART warning at every system boot.
    Acronis was only utility that quickly detected problem (3 sectors had permanent read errors.) [email protected] Image and Power Quest Drive Image (Ghost) did not detect the issue.
    I tried Seagate 500 GB and Western digital 500 GB HDD drives as copy target.
    That new drive would not boot: "Required source not found"
    Booted My newly created Windows-7 repair disc, and used to to fix startup.
    See images.
    That worked and then the ST9500423AS disc booted.
    Now... next day I discovered Window Update is not working.
    I get message:
    Windows Update cannot currently check for updates, because the service is not running. You need to restart your computer.
    I ran Microsoft Fixit for updates.  It says it fixed two items.
    I still have the problem.
    The service shows "started"
    Control Panel/ ACTION Center/ Maintenance/ Check for Updates
     "No action needed"
     "Windows Update does not require any action"
    I checked  Update History...
    ... It is empty, else window is vacant... blank.
    Soooo..... for a sanity check, I swap out hard drive; go back to the old format (which is the one I copied).
    It works!  7 updates to install, including SP1... but I did NOT install them.
    Switch back to the AF drive... Update doesn't work. I am broke again.
    Is this another strange problem caused by the Advance Format issue?
    What to do?
    By the way... I did install an Intel storage Matrix driver  update, but I do not have RAID chip, so that driver is not for me... unless I missed out on something.

  • Surface Pro 3 - Battery not detected

    1) After booting the system with the power adapter connected, Hold Down the power button until the unit powers itself off.   (Do not swipe down.)
    2) Disconnect the power adapter from the unit.
    3) Press and hold the Power Button (wait for a depleted system battery icon full screen)
    4) Re-connect the power adapter to the unit.
    5) Press and hold the volume up and Power button for 15 seconds.   (the unit keyboard will light up then power down if you hold it the full 15 seconds.)
    6) Press and hold the volume up and power button until the keyboard lights up (about 5 seconds)
    7) If the system/bios menu appears, select exit and restart
    8) Battery (should be) present and charging.

    My company is starting to adopt the Surface Pro 3 and 2 of them have begun to show "No Battery Detected". I've tried the Microsoft Troubleshooting and no luck there. 
    Any Spiceheads deal with Surface Pro 3 and solve this issue?

  • Windows did not detect any networking hardware

    We have an HP Pavilion desktop, model # a6610t, using Vista OS.  We have been connected to the internet wirelessly for almost 1 year and now all of the sudden it cannot find any wireless networks.  We are able to successfully connect wirelessly to the Internet on other laptops and I can connect to the internet on the desktop with a cable so I know it is not the modem or router.  I have also unplugged both the modem and routers - still no success. 
    We ran a virus scan and no treats were identified.  The only thing different that we see is that we got updated to Internet Explorer 8.
    Any  suggestions??
    This question was solved.

    Please try to reinstall the networking drivers from recovery manager and also please inform the status of the wireless button .Does it stay orange or does it turn blue.

  • Wndows did not detect any biometric devices on this computer..

    I have an HP ProBook 4540s running Windows 7 Professional w/IE11. I had to do a clean install of Windows 7 Pro and since then I cannot get my fingerprint reader to work at all. In my Control panel, under Biometric Devices, I recieve the message "Windows did not detect any biometrics devices on this computer". However, under Computer , Properties, Device Manager, Biometric Devices,  the is Validity Sensors (WBF) (PID=003d).
    I have tried to update, uninstall, re-install HP Simplepass, drivers, etc from the HP website, but nothing is working. Also I cannot find exactly what fingerpriint reader hardware is installed on the computer even though it is physically there as part of the original configuration.
    I appreciate any assistance in resolving this issue.

    Hi Tamekia,
    I am sorry to hear nothing has worked yet. I have looked up some additional information and possible solutions. Follow the steps in this document to perform a level-three uninstall, register the Windows Installer Service, and then reinstall the HP software. An uninstall and reinstall of the software deletes and overwrites any of the files that might cause the error and resets the Windows Installer. HP recommends that you download the latest software from the HP Web site to remove any files that might be causing this error.
    Level-three uninstall, and register the Windows Installer Service

  • Surface Pro Windows 8.1 Will Not Shutdown

    Hello All:
    I'm having a problem with a Surface Pro that will not shutdown. It says it's shutting down, but it doesn't. I touch the screen after long periods of time after issuing a shutdown & it's waiting to log back in. Restart works as advertised.
    Anyone got some tips to troubleshoot this? Thanks for any feedback.

    I found it - "Turn on fast startup (recommended)" was turned on. This is a terrible (and not recommended by IT admins) setting to have turned on by default. Does MS even need to mess w/the shutdown buttons/process? First the Office Ribbon, then
    the Start button, now this! 
    People are creatures of habit - keep things the same or @ least allow them to change it back to how they're used to! 
    Sorry for the rant, but YEESH already!

  • Surface Pro 1 will not refresh and is stuck in safe mode

    Hi,
    Did you still remember what the messages it showed out as it wouldn't allow to do a reset/refresh?
    Could we enter the safe mode?
    If surface is not responding, take a try with the steps mentioned in the below article:
