Hey everybody, so a friend of mine has an issue. A pretty bad one. So, I was working on another issue on his Surface, and one of the troubleshooting steps there was to uninstall the WiFi driver. So I did, and since that I can't reinstall the WiFi driver. I tried to go to the official website and install with the *.inf file, with the MSI file, tried to run the troubleshooter, and it says it found some errors, but can't do anything about them. So I tried a lot of troubleshooting steps, and nothing helps. If you guys have any idea - please let me know. The tablet is still using Windows 8.1, if that matters.

Right now, all I can see is that the WiFi is not connected, and when you open the Settings, all you can see when you click on "Not connected" is that it opens the Properties, and a single button: Copy. Nothing more. Can't connect to WiFi, can't do anything. Just copy. Not sure what.

As I uninstalled the drivers, I believe this is the main issue. Also, some of the programs that depend on the Internet seem to be failing to connect properly, even though I am on Ethernet, and can access the website with no issues.
