Intel Driver and Support Assistant Error Message "No Configuration Data" II


Hi, there has already been a thread on this issue from another author (01-02-2023) but unfortunately it says it is not being monitored any longer, so I start this new one, since I face the same problem:


When I start the IDSA it scans my system to check for driver updates for about 10 to 15 seconds then gives an error message that reads "No Configuration Data" and under that it say's "There was no internet available during program startup".

My OS is Windows 8.1. I already tried reinstalling the Driver Update tool without success (also when using the removal tool).

My browser (Firefox) is up to date and no ad blockers are active (also tried with Chrome, same problem).

However, what I found out is that the windows event viewer shows event ID 36887 (Schannel Code 20) at the very time when I try to perform a system check with IDSA . Is it possible that the tool still runs with an old TLS protocol?

Hi and thanks for the reply.

Is there a way to send you a private message on that? Don't wanna share all my computer data with public.

I've seen there is a private inbox, but I can't find a link for sending you a private message.

Click on your avatar picture in the top right corner of the page (in the Communities blue banner) and select Messages from the resulting menu. Then, click on the Blue Compose icon (left of the little windows saying Inbox). This will bring up the dialog for creating a Private Message (PM). You can drag the TXT file from File Explorer into the box titled Drag and drop here or browse files to attach in order to attach it to this PM (note only one attachment allowed per PM).

Hope this helps,



Thank you @n_scott_pearson 

I sent you a private message with all the information @Alberto_R_Intel
