  • I have tried all these “fixes”. None have done me any good. I have An RCA Cambrio model#W101SA23T2, with win 10 installed on it. I recently had a virus, wiped the drive, and reinstalled a new copy of win 10 onto it. success, however, now I have no working devices ie; wifi, rotation, touch response, sound, and probably a few other things I haven’t found yet. I have searched everywhere for the drivers for these devices, but also, to no avail. RCA HELP, I’ve been there. Their help request inquiry, don’t send from my phone (too low of memory for this operation, it says). My computer is what is affected, therefore I can’t use that to contact them. Does anyone know where I can get these drivers? I’m pretty sure that’s the issue. Thank you.
