Yeah sorry, the error where it says that the device is not working properly in the device manager.

I did not try rebooting but just what I described above.

Was a driver reinstall really necessary, or is a simple reboot enough? If a reboot isn't enough.... something is messing around with driver files/settings.

Please confirm that a reboot or a power off/power on (after few minutes) isn't enought to solve it.

Well right now it's working fine so I don't have anything to troubleshoot.

But if it happens again I will try that out.

And check if linux sees it now. Still think it's a hardware problem
