I have followed the instructions but my update failed and now can't see the hex v2

After following the instructions on windows 10 I found the screen blinking on my laptop half way through and then an error message saying screen graphics driver failing but been restarted. OK weird. So then I found a few seconds later with more blinks that the computer crashed. Crap because it was 75% of the way through. Now before the update the options test box could see the hex v2, but after the computer crashed mid process with that screen issue which 2 hours of using the computer afterwards it has not re-appeared, still the hex v2 cannot be seen. I have tried the vci config but that doesn't see it either, so final choice was uninstall the vcds program and then reinstall it. I plugged in the hex v2 after reinstall and guess what, not visible on either options test mode or the vci config. So my brain is saying the firmw3are update caused something bad to happen to my graphics driver and crashed my computer but then also ruined the hex v2.

I could be wrong and await a reply from tech support, but mostly all of us would think that from this point on though, wouldn't we?

So unless they have another program to download which will fix the ruined firmware update in the hex v2, I think the units got to be replaced. WEIRD THING THOUGH. When I go into devices and look, it can see the HEX V2 no problems. is this weird though, or just confirming that the firmware in the device is royally screwed?

Hi James,

You mentioned the laptop always needs to be connected to a power source (due to the battery condition) so I replied to your e-mail to rule out a ground loop concern.

Regards,
Dana

Hi, I've had my hex net for 3 or 4 years now. Recently we moved house and I reset my hex net. Now I can't find my original password. Is it the FCC id on the side of the hex net?
Thanks
Julian

No. If you haven't modified it, the password is, erm, 'password'. :)
If you have modified it, but can't remember it, a long press on the red button when powered by either the car or USB will reset it back to 'password'.

Not sure what you mean. You have a HEX-V2, with a serial number ending in 802, right? You can use Beta 19.1. Just download it and install it.

Yes, you have right. That is my serial number.
When I hit the button "check for UPDATES" nothing happens. Why my VCDS software do not let my know about this update, until previously ?

Ah. Because it's a Beta and it seems nobody ever told the update server that it is available. :facepalm:
