I updated to KB4343909 last night. About 30 minutes ago both my monitors went black while booting up minecraft. The music I had in the background was still running, so I'm pretty sure the rest of the PC is fine. When rebooting, my monitors will display the BIOS portion of the boot cycle but then go black when it would normally ask me which windows operating system to run. I took out the GPU and everything is running fine on the motherboard's graphics unit. My thoughts are that the windows update screwed up my drivers or that my GPU just died. I'm posting to see if anyone else has this problem (which would suggest it's a driver issue) or if I'm alone in this (which would suggest my GPU died).
I built a Win 10 gaming PC and avoided certain games with a mouse because they would 'jitter' but I just realized today that it's my mouse skipping every other pixel when I move it. I'm running things at 4K but it's like my mouse is functioning in 1920x1080. This is in game and on the desktop, but it's not an issue when my field of view isn't tied to mouse movement. Is there an easy fix for this?
I’ve tried opening my command prompt every way I found but it just flashes up for a milli second kinda and I haven’t got it to work so what am I suppose to do?
I was playing League of Legends, when suddenly, in the middle of the game, the screen gets filled with black and black'ish green stripes. I wasn't doing nothing new, I had the apps that I use everyday open, the music was still going thru the speakers. I had to restart. I see the windows 10 logo, loading, display off for 1 second (normal), then the screen turns back on but everything black. I'm now in the safemode with networking but I cant figure out what to do, startup repair doesn't work, it stays 2-3 seconds at 'attempting repairs' and it says that startup repair couldn't fix the problem. What should I do?
Ok so i have a Windows 8.1 laptop and Windows keeps chaning the microphone volume if i talk loudly and my friends on discord say that they don't hear me. I've tried everything in the microphone's settings such as turning off "Allow application to take exclusive control of the device" but it still changes the volume on it's own. Thanks for reading.
Says my headphones aren't plugged in
Edit: it seems I now have to plug in my earphones to the back of the computer where there's a icon that looks more like wifi. The icon at the front clearly looks like headphones. It's more comfortable plugging in at the front.
This is actually my mothers pc. She has this medical software that only runs on windows xp. The pc is really old so she wanted me to upgrade it.
My thoughts on the project was to run a virtual machine on win10 and install winxp. But is there a way to use her machines old preinstalled OS and run it on the virtual machine? I have no clue if this is possible.
The problem with that medical software is that you can’t just install it. We’d have to have the lady that installs it to do a fresh install and it cost $2500 - that’s why I’m trying to find a workaround. I think it runs on Visual Basic or something.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
I have been running into a issue with a few program installations.
I first noticed it earlier this week when installing Google's Drive File Stream. I get an error when the install goes to install the driver in "C:/Windows/System32/drivers".
At first I was think it was File Stream as I had no other problems with any other programs.
Until today I noticed I'm unable to install Malwarebytes also.
Both installers give and "Access Denied" error when trying to write to the driver folder.
Has anyone run across this before?
I have fake windows pro on my PC and now I got original key.
What will happen if I just activate that key, will it delete all my files and programs and reset whole OS or will it just update Windows to new version.
Usually it is logged in all the time as my user account. This feel fishy. Any evidence that this is legit?
Is it possible to set the DNS Cache as "read-only" regardless of network configuration changes? I've got a hosts file with 1.6 million links in it and it takes about a half hour each time the cache clears - which occurs with disturbing frequency with my VPN and Firewall setup. For Windows 10.
Both my laptops won't connect and dont show any wifi available, the troubleshooting message says "there might be a problem with the driver for the wifi adapter. Windows couldn't automatically bind the IP protocol stack to the network adapter." Any advise is greatly appreciated. (I'm currently on my laptop with ethernet cable)
A thing that annoys me in Windows 10 is the number of resets
forced brought by each update. Or falling back to defaults if you prefer a more diplomatic approach.
The default software I have to open certain extensions (eg .html .avi or whatever) is something I've actually chosen myself and would really much prefer to be kept that way. No, Microsoft Edge, you might be ok but I don't want you opening my html files please stop intervening after each update. It's just a waste of data, storage, and time. My time.
Which apps I decide to keep from the new windows 10 bundle apps, is also my choice. A forced update reinstalling all kinds of software that has been removed before, without even asking, isn't that kind of an action, don't you think?
More like an insult.
I'm sure there are even worse or "tiring" resets (technical stuff) but I am just stating some simple ones.
I mean come on guys, this isn't power user or anything, this is decency to respect personal choice. something that anyone can easily agree, am I right?
Thanks for the time reading this
My brother bought a new computer and I'm not sure if his motherboard is to blame or not but I can't get USBs to work. His mouse and keyboard seem to work when the computer first powers on and if I go into BIOS they work just fine; but when I was trying to install Windows 7 last night the second the install media booted up his mouse and keyboard deactivated. I plugged his hard drive into my computer and it seemed the problem cleared up but now that windows 7 is installed I'm having the same problems.
I suspect his motherboard is possibly to blame but I'm not sure what I would be able to do with that information so I'm curious if there's anything I can do on Windows side to fix the issue.
My Bose speakers no longer output any sound after the recent update yesterday. I was able to record audio from Audacity through the speakers, they also make noise when I unplug the speakers' cord, so it's not an issue concerning the speakers themselves. I also made an attempt to update the drivers, but there are no currently installed drivers and there are none available to download. The speakers are listed as: Speakers (Realtek High Definition Audio). I've never had this issue with any of the previous Windows updates.
Edit: On Windows 10, if that helps at all.
I'm on my third try now to install a feature update to Windows 10 v1803. It just says Initializing or it says 0% and gets stuck at that. Is there a safe and legitimate way to install this update manually? Like from the Microsoft Update Catalog or something? I am planning on installing one update from the Update Catalog but when I clicked it the window with the link popped up and said "Not secure" in the top left instead of saying HTTPS or Secure like normal. Is this ok? I downloaded the file anyway. Is it safe to install or should I just not install it and not get the update?
I fucking hate Windows Update with a burning passion in my heart.
Gold to anyone that can help me solve this nightmare. Thanks, Reddit!
I have a very old computer that still functions fine, but is still on VISTA. What is the best and cheapest way to upgrade my computer to a current operating system? I'm sorry, I don't know much when it comes to windows and computer operating systems...
BQ: is Windows 7 the best option? I've heard it's much better than Windows 10.
I’ve been using Windows 7 instead of 10 and now I’m getting these messages telling me that my processor is only designed for the latest version of Windows and that my current operating system doesn’t support my hardware, when it does with no issues. Will ya just leave Windows 7 users alone Microsoft? https://imgur.com/a/ve5YaIX
I'm just venting... I've always managed my updates well and now I'm forced disable windows update service just so I don't come back to a computer that rebooted. This only results in me having even longer intervals between updates because now I have to enabled the service to check for updates and I need to remember to disable it afterwards.
EDIT: Changed "No auto-restart with logged on users for scheduled automatics updates installations" to "enabled" in my local GPO. Hope this does the trick.
Everytime it asks me to update and I install the update (which is forced on me btw, good job dipshits who work on this OS), I'm forced to restore into a previous version. Why? Because my Intel Graphics card disappears from my fucking computer and because of that my NVIDIA drivers stop working as well.
Tried to manually install Intel back, but got a ton of errors and it didn't work > was forced to restore. I have to restore at least once a week. Once every 2 weeks if I'm lucky. Or however long I can keep it from shutting down on me and installing it anyways even though I don't want it to.
Why does Windows fuck over my Intel graphics card? I can't get any updates ever.
I'm a gamer and I can't deal with this bullshit. I need my drivers to work.
I have the latest one too, I checked. No updates for Intel.
And on top of that it keeps turning Windows Update back on after I DISABLE it in the service.msc thing, like what the fuck? I don't want your shit fucking updates if they're gonna break my goddamn computer.
