  1. Thanks, Anand! On occasions that I’ve had to fix Windows 10 installations (and not lose Programs and Data) I’ve simply used the appropriate Media Creation Tool and re-upgraded Windows 10. In effect an upgrade over an upgrade giving a clean installation without loss of programs! However, if certain programs are the culprit to an unstable installation then the information given here would be the way to go.

  2. dell lap 32 bit windows 10, intel graphics 3000, while restarting doesn’t start after closing lid it starts

  3. Crazy; uninstall the driver uninstall the device manager then restart, if that doesn’t help go to Control PanelAll Control Panel ItemsPower OptionsEdit Plan Settings and check to make sure none of the advanced settings are wrong. If that doesn’t work create a new power plan and turn off all the nannies such as sleep after 30 min etc.

  4. What if my start button and task bar doesnt respond. What i can only do is to shutdown in lock screen mode.
    Please help

  5. I have question. Recently I reinstalled windows 10 on my Dell 32 bit laptop. But its installed on logical drive. There is 2 primary partition one is system reserved. Is there any problem?

  6. I did a in place upgrade via media creation tool with Window Tech help and you dont loose your apps or programs thats true but my games such as Forza 7 and Gears of War 4 and Halo Wars 2 would not load properly and thus has to delete and reinstall them anyways. This took 24 hours each for me atleast. Also my windows store app live tiles do not work. No fixes repair them I have tried them all. In my test account they dont work either so it is clearly a pc problem or something. In place upgrade is not advised in my experience. I give up on tiles.. Even when they worked it was hit a miss. Most dont work period and my pc is under a year old.

  7. If reset this pc is performed, do the pre-installed apps from the manufacturer remain? and what about the microsoft pre-installed apps?

  8. I performed a reset on w10 and an alarm went off TPN requirement to choose f1 or f2 to continue. I chosed f2 which was reject “clearing the TPN” and the system would not accept the choice. System remains locked up
