Windows 10 Problems and Solutions: Technical Fixes and Guidelines

Windows 10 was released on July 29, 2015, by Microsoft as a part of the Windows NT family. It was the first in the franchise to receive feature updates while being kept on. It was developed so as to incorporate aspects that were missing in the previous version. However, if you have installed Windows 10 and it’s not functioning properly try to fix the bugs using the April update.

Windows 10 comes with her trouble-shooter option that helps to identify the problem and you can also opt for the reset option. If you have any PC related problems like Windows Wifi configuration issues, network protocol missing on the computer or Page Fault in a Non-paged Area Error you can refer to the sites like all in one solution for all your PC problems.

Here in this post, I’m going to guide you through how to reset Windows 10: 

1. Empty the disk space

Some people are facing this particular problem where the updating takes place for a few minutes and suddenly comes to a halt. In such case revert back to the original version of Windows 10. If it is still unresponsive you need to empty some space on the hard drive. The latest update requires 16GB and 32GB of free space for the 32-bit version and 64-bit version respectively.

2. Disable current antivirus software

It might be possible that the anti-virus installed in the machine is hindering the update process because of its strong firewall. Temporary uninstallation of the anti-virus software might help with the process.

3. Reset update

If the options problem persists, while trying to install the Windows 10 April 2018 update, resetting of the update service might be required.

4. Install the latest Windows 10 update via USB

Even after trying out the previous procedures installation is rendered problematic, installation via USB drive might help. A blank DVD or are USB stick for adding the installation files is required having an adequate space of 5 GB. After downloading and installing the tool try opening it up and agree to the terms and policies. Following this select the language, edition and 32bit or 64bit according to your preference. Then opt for USB flash drive or ISO file. The option is available for downloading the Windows 10 April 2018 update 64 bit ISO image directly from Microsoft. There is also an option for the 32-bit hardware. After having the tools formatted check for any bugs and problems.

5. The mystery regarding the disappearance of the desktop

Final Words:

The above-mentioned problems can be taken care by following these simple steps. But if you are carrying an Alienware laptop and you are trying to update, you are likely to face problems. This is because the latest update of Windows 10 April 2018 on this particular laptop has a bug causing a black screen after waking up from sleep mode. The solution to this imminent problem is taken care by Fall Creators Update.

There are numerous reports that the latest update is causing problems with the solid-state drives. The update was encountering a procrastinating bug. But there is nothing to worry about as Microsoft and Intel are aware of this issue. They have placed a temporary block in place as a part of the remedial solution.

People have also reported having on-screen keyboard and microphone problems with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update. Check for the ‘devices’ option and ‘privacy’ option. Restarting the Media Creation Tool App takes care of the problem of not being stuck. Downloading the latest Nvidia driver update from the GPU makers website does not show that it is missing.
