Razer synapse 3 "Failed to start"

This has been happening for a week, and I've had to keep reinstalling the program everyday and I have still not gotten a fix for this. Can anyone help? The version of Razer synapse 3 is latest, brand new from yesterday. I have no idea why this is happening.

Any chance, that firewall or some antivirus software is blocking it (internet connection)?
Heres my lil copy and paste guide that resolved this issue for me friend <3


Check Task manager -> Services for THREE services: Razer Game Manager Service, and RzActionSvc, Razer Synapse service

The goal here is to have all three on the board and running
Razer Synapse cannot start until RzActionSvc && Razer Game Manager Service are both running.
If they're not on the board Then we will make them get on the board.

1. Try to start any of the three services you can (if present)

2. open up “PowerShell” as Administrator and run any command for the service you need installed. (Any service not on the board)

New-Service -Name "RzActionSvc" -BinaryPathName "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Razer\\Razer Services\\Razer Central\\RazerCentralService.exe"

New-Service -Name "Razer Game Manager Service" -BinaryPathName "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Razer\\Razer Services\\GMS\\GameManagerService.exe"

New-Service -Name "Razer Synapse Service" -BinaryPathName "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Razer\\Synapse3\\Service\\Razer Synapse Service.exe"

Its saying x86 isnt a valid command or something, blah blah blah, is there any way to fix that?
Sorry I haven't updated on this problem, but none of these work, I tried a complete fresh copy of reinstalling razer synapse, deleted every bit of trace of it. IT still says "failed to start".
Not even the problem of "reinstalling" it works now, it just boots to saying this. It might have been due to a new SSD that I got, the old hard drive that I had broke down, and it no longer works, most of the contents on that hard drive are corrupted. I am still desperate for a permanent fix.

Unfortunately this doesn't work, the tasks are already running.
