Unfortunately, Insignia/Best Buy did not make drivers available for all of its Windows-based products.

If the drivers are not found on the product's webpage, I, myself, wouldn't expend much time trying to pin them down.

Sadly, entry level tablets running Windows 10 are pretty much gone at this point.

I used to own an Insignia NS-P08W7100. After about a year, the battery had worn out to the point where the device would no longer be operated without being connected to the charger. Even then there was no guarantee that it would start even when plugged in.

I ended up doing a hard reset and dropping it off to be recycled.

I suppose it could be attempted. I just don't know what files would need to be copied.

I, personally, wouldn't spend the time attempting to do so.

Now Nuvision still offers an inexpensive 11.6" Windows 2 in 1. It is called the Split.

One of the advantages of purchasing a Microsoft Surface device (I own two of them) is that Microsoft makes the drivers available as well as easy to follow instructions on how to create the drives and how to boot up off of the recovery drive.

I owned one of those convertable 2 in one devices with a detachable keyboard. The problem was if you deleted the partition of the hard drive and tried to clean install the device, not all the drivers were installed and I had the problem of the picture appearing in a tall format until I installed a tablet driver from Acer.

 

Eventually I ran into some issues with a bios update which effectively bricked the device. I have not given them much trust since but they can be tricky if you're not in the know.

 

Acer Support.... Not so much.

 

If you attempt anything you would need an OTG adapter and a USB keyboard to try to get into the BIOS mode of those units.

Good Morning, friends,

 

Please note, we do not recommend uninstalling and installing new drivers. New drivers to get your tablet back up and functional may not be available. If your devices aren’t performing as expected within the first year of ownership we’d highly recommend visiting your local Best Buy’s Geek Squad for some help under the warranty.

 

Respectfully,

If a tablet is purchased as used, and, an undisclosed problem is found, I would contact the seller about getting a refund.

 

These inexpensive tablets were, seemingly, contract manufactured (the Insignia branded tablets are pretty much identical to ones sold under the NuVision label).

 

I do not know what insider "tools" that Geek Squad employees have access to, but, the tablets are, for all intents & purposes, designed to be replaced rather than repaired. The lack of posted drivers is another indication that the tablets are not designed to be user repaired.

 

Although more expensive, Microsoft makes available drivers for Surface devices so users can create a recovery thumb drive to boot up from should the need arise.
