Wow.. that seems a counsel of perfection.. for us non professionels, backup is a very inconvenient process.. and takes time. You don't actually know that Windows is going to update until you switch your computer off and get the updating percentage screen!

As I have said before, for many of us, this is a consumer product and should be failsafe... No users should be having problems with their important files!

As for my bios.. this is a homebuild as I use Dragon speech recognition which requires to be as electically silent as possible.. but built on a Gigabyte MB and to highest specs. I have not checked right through the BIOS but I had set it to wake with number pad enabled... and keyboard activation... both of which I have lost... even though I have rolled back to the previous good version.

Thank you. Not quite what I have experienced as the system broke during the update and I did not try to do any disk maintainance. But checking back it appears that the update in the summer did the same thing.

This is very bad.. Microsoft should not be breaking our computers like this. My dad is 99.. he has all his marbles but no way he could have sorted this out without me going over and doing it for him.. and, with Covid.. I don't like actually interfereing with his keyboard.. which I have disinfected. Ther are a lot like him who will not have a clue how to sort this out... and if they cannot get their computers started, how are they going to receive the updated version?

I am totally more than agreed what you have said. 

As end an user like myself. I too had a similar issues with Windows 10. (In fact since Windows 8. And Windows 8.1)

Well, the thing is that, many microsoft software engineers have lay off many many years ago. And we as end users deeply missed their service. 

I had smiliar issues when my laptop keyboard are no longer recognised when install the latest updates. Unexpected things to happen without my knowledge. 

I have to feedback the matter with the Microsoft Feedback Hub on these. 

I have to rolled back to the previous Windows 10 build while doing beta testing.

HI

mrdbeta
  • Command prompt   : chkdsk /f

After that, W10 works or not,
The old one does not work by force.

But who will determine it when the age of use comes?
When the functions get more speed and the old bottom / components do not have that speed.
Or laptops never have condensers cleaned on the inside and the fan screams full. This 1 tips service device.

Last weekend i installed my system couple of times too. First it went ok and i almost had my things organissed how i wanted, and soon bluescreen informing that something critical happened, have to restart, then it started to restart but then it said that critical error has occured that some prosess (no any idea what, it didnt inform) has died and blaablaa... Then comes the troubleshoot, i tried all what i could but nothing and wasnt able to get back to windows anyhow. Then the other time i lost suddendly video from my mainscreen after updates at the start, and it moved my video to the secondary screen which is connected to the motherboard. And nothing didnt get it back to the mainscreen behind videocard. But now have managed to go couple of days.. knock knock.. But i dont feel comfortable with windows at all anymore.
