Windows Phone Keep Turning Off During Update (spinning Gears)?
Jul 22, 2015
I tried getting windows 10 and when it decided to reboot and update it goes through the Nokia logo and to gears where it spins for a short while then turns itself off. I have tried using the different reset methods multiple times but to no avail. I don't even get the exclamation mark. I have a Mac Book Pro and tried the beta NSU for retail but it wont even recognise my device. Phone was working fine until update... Is there a solution, other than getting a new phone?
So, earlier today (after having been gone for the last week on a trip) I installed a update for my Windows 10 computer. After the update (and it seemed like a doosy) the system worked fine for about 5-10 minutes and so I set about doing the usual disk cleanup. During this though Windows Defender turned itself off. Attempts to open the program either result in a window that just reads that the app is 'turned off' and isn't monitoring the computer.
Following the tabs on the 'action center' pull out seem to open up the Defender tab properly and allows me to turn it on...but then it turns itself off again after a couple of seconds.
I'm not currently running any other kind of virus scan/spyware protection software on the machine atm. Aside from just installing new anti-virus software.
New Windows 10 Laptop is downloading update for version 1511,10586, and it has taken hours to get to 49%. Storm coming and I really need to turn off machine. Will the part of update that has downloaded be there when I turn laptop back on? We have lots of lightning and I have been hit before, I do have protection, but don't like to rely on it in this case. At the download has been going, it could take another four hours to get the last half of download.
I have an issue whereby when I return home from work in the evening, I find my PC running after being turned on by Windows Update during the day. I find this intrusion unacceptable and I probably wouldn't mind so much if it turned it back off again! What if I was away for a vacation?
The other associated issue is that it installs an unwanted graphics driver upgrade, unfortunately this driver causes numerous dxgmm2.sys BSOD's. My only resolution for which is to roll back to an older 347.88 driver which runs like clockwork on SWTOR. Each night I roll back the driver to play uninterrupted and next day it is overwritten!
Unfortunately being Windows Home edition, my control of these updates is limited to non existent!
I am trying to load the 10166 build to a Lumia 735, but the phone keeps cycling through the update cycle whenever I turn it back on (moving cogs icon), and am unable to get to any settings. The 10149 build was previously downloaded successfully. Do I need to roll back to 8.1 to download the 10166 update.
I have a problem with a Windows 10 store on my desktop PC. This is not a phone.
I have the latest build 10240 with all of the updates installed. The last few updates installed over last night and then my Store app stopped working.
I searched reddit and found some similar problem: [URL] ....
The thing was that when I tried to open the Store app this morning I've got a message: Before you can shop, we need to update the Store. I then pressed Update button and then It tries to update the Store app.
But then it just says Pending and it doesn't do anything for the whole day now. I think there must be some other applications waiting for an update and they all got stuck. How to open the store?
I installed technical preview and it really turned my lumia 520 to a useless thing. Outlook disappeared and I can't receve or send mails. I have to charge my phone 3-4 times a day as well.
My real problem is windows phone recovery tool does not recognize my phone. That's why I can not downgrade to windows phone 8.1. I have tried other computers, windows 7 and 8.1, other cables. Result is the same. My computer sees my phone but windows phone recovery tool does not.
I'm presently using (running) Avast Pro and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit-Free, with weekly running of CCleaner, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and AdwCleaner. I do a lot of browsing and haven't had any problems with this approach. However, I got the hankering to also keep Windows Defender up-to-date and to occasionally run its scan just to see see if anything comes up.
So, I go to WD with the expectation that it is turned off and find that it may not be. I would go to update&security>windows defender and find, to my surprise, that real-time protection and cloud based protection are turned on, but grayed out. Furthermore, when scrolling to the bottom of the screen and clicking Open Windows Defender, I get the message that "WD is turned off and not monitoring the computer." I then went to Brink's WD tutorial (Windows Defender - Turn On or Off in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums)
This started yesterday, I can use the windows searchbar ONCE, then later on it will not work until I restart my computer, I cant open the adjust menu where I change my background and windows theme. My sound is randomly turning off, I've tried different headsets so that's not the problem.
I feel that my windows is overall not working like it should, Is there a way I can go back to Windows 7 or some update I've missed? I just noticed I cant play youtube videos either
I can't have a conversation with my friends while I have this problem.
So I have the sennheiser pc 363d headset, the mic volume has to be set 100 volume or I can't be heard. However windows 10 keeps automatically turning down my mic volume from 100 to 90 and lower making me mute.
Is there a way to stop Windows 10 from turning down my mic volume?
My Lumia 935 windows phone always routinely sent pictures to my Lenovo IdeaCentre desktop when I have Windows 8 and 8.5. I upgraded to Windows 10. Both devices have Bluetooth on. The computer says my phone is paired with it. I try to upload a picture and I get the message "the device you're trying to send to doesn't support sharing over Bluetooth." We've restarted both devices.
I own a Nokia Lumia 820. Yesterday facebook app was crashing and wouldn't open so I uninstall it. Now that that I'm trying to re-download it it won't let me. It tells me to check if the phone system is updated which it is. It is the only app I'm having problems downloading, I have download others during the day to check if the problem was related to all downloads but it isn't. It's just facebook.
Is there a way to RE-install Phone, Photos, Windows Store, Messaging, Maps, Zune Music, Zune Video, and I'm not sure what else, on my windows 10 pro? My grandson decided to mess around and uninstall them
So in the past I used the Windows Phone app on Windows 8.1 to transfer music from my PC to my Lumia. But now I upgraded to Windows 10 Pro and I don't know how to transfer music to my Lumia. I found out It's supposed to be through the Phone companion app, but it just tells me to use the File Explorer.
