I installed the Windows 10 beta from Window 7 a few days ago. I installed all the recent updates. Everything was working fine but then yesterday, I watched something on YouTube for about an hour and at that point the mouse became unresponsive. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing works. I've shut down, re-booted, gone into the bios but with no success. Windows 10 will open but the mouse remains unresponsive. I even plugged-in a brand new mouse but that hasn't worked at all.
I have another hard drive with Windows 8.1 from my other PC that has a defective motherboard and out of frustration, I installed the drive from that PC on this one. It works but sometimes I have to re-boot my PC a few times on start-up and then if I leave a browser open for a while without activity, the browser becomes unresponsive and although the mouse cursor works, it is not able to do anything.
So I put together a new PC running Windows 10 Pro around 3 months ago and everything was working perfect till 2 days ago when my mic suddenly stopped working. I use a Steelseries Siberia V2 headset and the headphones work fine, but the mic is not picking up any noise at all. I tried plugging in both the back and front ports and my realtek always detects that a mic has been plugged in, but it simply won't work. I thought maybe my mic got busted so I also tried using an A4 Tech headset that I had lying around in the office but it has the same issue, the mic won't work. I looked around online for possible solutions and tried the following with no luck:
Ensured the mic was set as the default device and that its volume settings were maxed out.Tried disabling all sound effects (noise suppression, acoustic echo cancellation etc).Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on my motherboard's webpage: GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1151 - GA-Z170MX-Gaming 5 (rev. 1.0)
Uninstalled all audio drivers and reinstalled the latest realtek drivers on realtek's own webpage: RealtekUninstalled all audio drivers and let Windows auto-install drivers.I even uninstalled all realtek drivers and tried using the standard "high definition audio device drivers."
Basically tried everything in this link: Microphone Not Working in Windows 10? | Win 10 FAQ
The conclusion was the same with everything I tried, the sound worked fine in both my speakers and headphones, but the mics simply didn't work. What's strange is that it just stopped working out of nowhere. I didn't install any new software or hardware or make any changes prior to the issue. Just turned the PC on one day and boom, mics not working.
I've attached screenshots of what my mic settings looked like with the realtek drivers and without.
I got home today and went to open the start menu on my computer, but it didn't respond. Neither does the search menu, nor Windows Edge, or Groove Music or the Windows 10 video program. All of my other programs on the task bar open when I click them, and when I right click the start menu button I am given a list of options, but not ability to access any of the application that I don't have on my task bar or desktop. I tried running POWERSHELL and sfc /scannow, but it found not integrity violations. So now I am not sure what next.
On my main Windows 10 machine my mechanical keyboard has suddenly stopped working. The keyboard itself works perfectly fine on my other systems and laptops but seems to not work on my main one. The keyboard works on the bios screen and any other part of the start up except from the login screen which is when it seems to completely stop responding. Buttons such as caps lock and also the num-lock stop lighting up the LED's and no keys seem to work. The computer recognizes other keyboards, which is how I'm writing this post, but it seems that my expensive mechanical doesn't work on this specific machine.
The keyboard itself is one that only requires the HID Interface, so you just plug it in and it works and I've even tried uninstalling all keyboard drivers but this is still no dice. I'm not really quite sure what to do, seeing as the keyboard only seems to go wrong on this machine, and other keyboards work fine,
My searchbar/cortana has suddenly stopped working, when I click I get a message telling me there is a problem, please sign out.
-So I created a new user account, this fixed the problem for that account -So I tried to sign in to the newly added local account with my Microsoft account and entered my username and password -I then got a screen asking for my old password (I assume its the microsoft password) -I got a message telling me its not correct for this device (I only have one password) -So I left it blank (as per the on screen instructions) -The I got an error screen 'oops something went wrong, its probably our fault' and that's it, cant get any further.
So I thought Id transfer all the files and settings from my old account to the new account, and Ive hit a brick wall, how can I do this ? the new account has no knowledge og my applications, documents, pictures, etc. I just cant install everything.
Today my keyboard stopped working, there was a usb error message pop up but i didn't realise what it was about, then then my k70 corsair keyboard stopped working, i tried restarting and doing an sfc scan but nothing changed, then i started looking into device manager but all the drivers were up to date so i tried reinstalling the HID keyboard driver but nothing changed, i then looked into the event viewer and found the issue (attached screenshot)
Recently i have upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7. Everything was fine the first hour, then all of the sudden the mouse stopped working and it was no where to be seen. The mouse that I use is an old Logitech mouse that has a ball to control the mouse. So, I plugged in another mouse and it was working, but the clicks were backwards.
After upgrading to Windows 10 on my sony laptop my mouse will not come back on the screen after I close my laptop and the computer goes to sleep. I have to restart my laptop after every time my computer goes to sleep to get my mouse back on the screen. Just checked DM and the touchpad drivers are current.
I have two desktops and a NAS drive on my network. Both PC's are Win10. One Pro, the other Home. Everything was working beautifully then out of nowhere the Home machine just stopped accessing the public folder on the Pro machine saying it didn't have permission. I thought the Public folder didn't need permissions if it's shared with Everybody. But it will access and read the other non-public shares on the Pro machine. Weird The Pro machine, however, doesn't even see the Home machine on the network any more, although I can ping it. Again, weird. I had a mapped drive to the Home machine which is now broken. Both PC's can see and access the NAS drive. No settings were changed, nothing was touched, it just worked one minute and stopped the next. The Pro machine was just updated to Build 10586.3 on 11/13/15. But I don't think that caused it because everything worked until the 17th. All the network settings were correct and they have not been changed. I can't find anything about it on the internet except the typical "Make sure Network Discovery is on and file sharing is enabled." Yes, Network Discovery is on and file and printer sharing is enabled on both machines. Still no go.
Recently, my computer has been very strange... I have been having unwitnessed BSODs (showing up in the reliability monitor), lots of hardware errors in the reliability monitor and multiple programs stopping working. The troubleshooting steps I took to try to solve these issues were: updating all drivers, testing ram with memtest86+ (8 passes OK), testing the hard drive with Sea Tools (all ok) and refreshing windows 10.
A couple of days ago, I experienced my start menu, Cortana all "apps" etc. not working. So, I logged off, only to find a black screen with a cursor! The only way to turn off was to do a hard shut down. After turning back on again, I got the usual windows start up screen and normal "AVG watchdog starting up" text (see attachment). However, my computer freezes at this stage. AVG stops at finished and the computer freezes!
After trying to boot into safe mode, I simply get the black screen and cursor again.
Luckily, I have all files backed up and other computers to use, but I am really concerned about the root cause of my problems as I have had similar errors in previous installs of windows.
I resorted to try to reset my new Win 10 install. But, as soon as I select "Reset this PC" a screen shows up says: "Choose your Keyboard Layout" and the very first choice of course is "US", but my mouse is disabled suddenly and I try to navigate with the keyboard, which I've had some experience, but it seems all the keys are disabled also. So, I can't get past one of the very first screens to even reset Windows 10.
I use left handed mouse, and swapping left / buttons works OK. I also set the wheel button to be "double click". But the wheel button brings up the context menu instead of double click. If I change to right hand mouse, the wheel button gives double click as expected. how to make the wheel button give double click for left hand mouse?
have a problem with usb drivers according to my control panel which says it is fixing the issue and then tells me to reboot but it is not fixed. Keyboard lights up on start but when the first blue window appears it goes off. I can get into the bios ok and the keyboard works there. only one port is working (USB3). as my mouse and keyboard are usb and there is no PS2 port i am kinda cactus at the moment. Been searching for usb drivers for win 10 but not having any luck. Everything was working fine since November until yesterday.
Up until a few days ago I was able to import .MOV files from my iPhone 5 to my Windows 10 computer and play them with the default 'Films & TV' app. For some reason my computer now hates this file type. It wont play any audio unless its through the slow Quicktime media player, even vlc doesn't work. Also I edit these video with Sony Vegas Pro 13 and now whenever I drag them onto the timeline the video corrupts and screen freezes!!
I've had some fun and games with Windows 10 so far (Solved Windows 10 upgrade - random freezes and PC becomes unresponsive - Windows 10 Forums). Now something else seems to have gone wrong.
I was fiddling around with the BIOS last night (trying to get the PC to see 8GB rather than my current 6GB of memory). Anyway, I couldn't, so I switched all the BIOS settings back to what they were (even did a CMOS reset). However, I now find that my PC won't boot into Windows 10. It crashes/reboots as soon as the four blue squares appear on screen (usually before the little dots even have time to rotate).
I can't boot into Safe Mode. Inserting a Windows 10 DVD also falls over. Even the Macrium Reflect boot disc I have won't work. However - mine is a dual boot machine - it will boot into Windows 7 without a hitch.
I've tried using the BoYans.net Dual-boot Repair tool, but no no avail. Ditto Tenorshare Windows Boot Genius - though it does at least boot, but none of the tools within it have made any difference (I've tried Boot File Recovery and MBR Recovery - I didn't run Boot Sector Recovery, as it mentions making "All boot sectors of this partition... compatible with Windows Vista and Windows 7".)
Can it possibly be something weird in the BIOS - even though I've reset it on more than one occasion? Or is it, as I suspect, some weird boot problem (again!) - both the above tools can see the Windows 10 installation, so I know it's still there in theory.
For some reason two finger scroll just stopped working even though it was working about an hour ago. Why it changed or what i did to change it. I tried entering the control panel, mouse, then synaptics settings, and enabling vertical scrolling, but that didn't seem to fix the problem.
Mic stopped working after windows 10 update. I can't raise the db levels and it does not record any sounds. Its like its muted all the time, but i cant unmute it. Its an HyperX Cloud II if that matters.
Win 10 was working well on my Toshiba Satellite.(i7 4 gig ram).Then I lost the ability to download with Cannon Camera software. This program stopped working. ( got off pictures by removing SD card and putting it direct in laptop.)Next computer slows down and run st 55 to 60 Deg C. (air temp about 23 deg and desktop computer running at 35 deg.)
Then Blue screen telling me Video_Krnl............ failed/error.Ran restore point and system worked again for a while(2 days).Now I can only get 3 to 4 minutes before blue screening and failing. Have blown out cooling fins but little to no dust as computer is only just one year old. Regularly run AVG and Wise 365 cleaner over it.
This morning when i turned on my computer the sound was not working.I reinstall all my sound drivers, i reboot my computer a lots of time, i cheked if everythings was pluged correctly and everythings was supposed to be fine but the sound don't work !
Recently discovered Windows Explorer stop working. Ran SFC /ScanNow result were some flies were repaired, which directed me to C:WindowLogCBSCBS.log, nothing found there. What to do, it was only by accident I discovered it was not working, no error messages or any signs.
The start button on windows 10 has stopped working for me. It came right after I installed a new graphics card though in the days before I had noticed strange stuff like when I searched for an app and clicked on its icon within the start menu nothing would happen. File explorer, settings etc stills works but are very slow.
