Now that the new upgrades have been installed, I have to log on every time my screen times out. Before the upgrades, if I walked away and came back, moving the mouse or touching a key would bring back the desktop. How can I get back to that status? (By the way, the automatic upgrade hiccuped at 75% and locked the computer so it couldn't be turned on without holding the power key down for over 5 seconds--very inconvenient as I had to go to Geek Squad to get it back since I didn't think of that).
Multiple times today my PC has displayed an all white screen but the mouse cursor is visible. The first time I noticed this was after an idle period (more than an hour) I rebooted the PC but the white screen returned, I rebooted again and it was gone but the PC took longer than normal to load windows. The PC then ran for several hours in a "normal" state (I didn't notice any issues but I'm a novice) however after an idle period (more than 30 minutes) the white screen returned. Pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete brought the desktop back up (I did not attempt this the first time) and the computer once again appears to be running fine.
I ran my Norton antivirus and Malwarebytes full scans in regular mode and the MBAM scan displayed several PUPs from "mindspark" which have been removed.
So every day i get this blue screen error 3 times a day, my pc started doing this 2 weeks ago, never did it on windows 8.1 and was fine on 10 for a while. Googled it and says its a cpu voltage error, but i have reset my UEFI to defaults, updated UEFI, updated drivers , and nothing works. My CPU is the intel i7 4790k and the motherboard is an Asrock Z97X killer. The interesting thing is my laptop does the same thing and so does my friends all in one pc, so is this a windows 10 issue? and is there a fix?
Just this morning, many of my apps are taking exactly 30 seconds to load. They sit at their splash screens for 30 seconds, and then load and play fine. No updates on the store, and nothing from Windows Update. Running S3 on TH2 build of W10.

I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 home last week. However, today, while I was playing with my PS4, my PC randomly got 2 BSOD with in 3 minutes time frame. I was not using my PC. It was turned on, idling. After the first BSOD, the PC restarted and within 3 min another BSOD.I ran Memtest and Prime95, and played GTA 5 without any failures.
Computer type: PC/DesktopSystem Manufacturer/Model Number: Custom built OS: Windows 10 64 bit Home CPU: Intel i7 3770k (not overclocked) Motherboard: ASUS P8Z77-V
Got W10, rebooted several times during the process. W10 takes an average 30-35 seconds longer than W8.1 to boot up, and then proceeds to roast my CPU for about 1/2 hr before it settles down, for about 2 mins, then starts roasting it again. During this time, my RAM shoots up to 80% usage.
Again, I rebooted plenty of times, I feared for my high end HP laptop, so I rolled back to W8.1. I will have to wait until MS has its crap together on this one.
Yesterday I installed Windows 10 and it worked perfect. But i ouccured or how it spells a problem with the wifi on win 10, I can use it normally then just like that it disconnects then like 2 secs or when I click the wifi thing down there it connects again, then why I try do some after 1-2 mins it starts disconnects 3 secs later connects....
I've experienced multiple BSOD's in a while now. It occurs several times every day. I thought it was an issue with my graphics card, since it often occured using Adobe Illustrator and other GPU needing applications. Today I replaced my graphics card and I got a BSOD a few minutes later.
Have had home builds for years with no big issues before windows 8.1 and now windows 10. I thought i had issues with memory or graphic card on my previous computer so i ended up buying new parts for a new build.
But nothing changed. Not so frequent as before but up to several times a day my computers gets an BSOD. I must say it is random for me what i am doing while this happens.
Different messages before restarting. The 2 last one while trying to create this thread and making the dump zip file was Kernel check failure and DPC watchdog violation.
First off my windows 10 install worked fine for about a month and then all of a sudden I have been experiencing 2 to 3 ramdom crashes and reboots. There is no BSOD, the computer just simply turns off and reboots, even though I have set the advanced settings not to automatically shut down on error. I have also updated to the latest BIOS ....
My system - self build.
Asus X99 Deluxe motherboard 4 sticks of Corsiar dominator RAM running at 2133 (they are specified up to 2666) default BIOS settings - no overclocking 2*EVGA Geforce 980s in SLI
I have disconnected all usb devices but this is still happening. What is strange that it just started out of the blue. Before i just do a fresh install, any diagnostic approaches?
As you could see the file which cause the bug is not very current (appid.sys), so i think it's not the real culprit... Of course i've tested memory, ssd, virus, before post here. I've also bought who crashed pro for analyse the dump and installed windbg but for the first, no essential information and for the second i don't have all knowledge for exploiting this tool throughly...

Long story short, my hard drive is fried and I have to purchase a new hard drive. I understand that the OEM version is locked to one PC, but would I be able to use it on the same PC with a new hard drive?
I need to get around the windows automatic update for my Lenovo T440s laptop. the update shows as failed several times in windows update. I never make it to any download screen. I am upgrading from 8.1 pro and all updates are installed.
Is the message that Im getting. From my experience, this message displays when you upgrade to Windows 10, but I have already upgraded a few months back. I turned on my computer and I get this updating screen.
Okay so i have download threw windows installer, it gets to about 60% on the install (its in the installer not windows update)and gives me an error message (i have not been quick enough to catch it yet) and then reverts right back to windows 8.1. Then MAKES ME re download windows 10 AGAIN!! I am going to try to catch the error the next time, but crashing during install and then reverting back to 8.1 just to redownload it.
Also according to windows update it has failed to install 16 times!!!
Start don't work, and Computer is 5 times slower. We used, sfc/scannow a bunch of times with a restate each time but didn't work at all. We were thinking about uninstalling windows 10 back to Windows 7. The computer ran windows 10 for about 2 weeks just fine and then this happened.
