Recommended Posts

 You can also do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything other than all installed Windows Updates.

This tutorial will show you how to do a repair install of Windows 10 by performing an in-place upgrade without losing anything.

You must be signed in as an administrator to be able to do a repair install of Windows 10.

You will only be able to do a repair install of Windows 10 from within Windows 10. You will not be able to do a repair install at boot or in Safe Mode.

You will need at least around 8.87 GB + what Windows is currently using of free space available on the Windows drive.

      I just got a new laptop with windows 10 installed. I would like to change the tiles on the desktop to icons. I have no idea how to do this. Help!

      Okay, I'll just run down what went down before the problem arose.
      I am running Windows 10 with the Creators Update and I ran into a weird problem. This morning, when I was booting up my laptop (it's an ASUS X556UF) and I came across what looks like a black screen with the loading circle (the white spinning dots) and at first I thought it was just normal until after an hour and I knew something was up. The cursor is visible and when I pressed ENTER and hovered my mouse in some places I noticed it was detecting a text field (which is the password input for the user login). So I blindly typed in my password (the screen was still showing the loading black screen) and it was sucessful. I was in my desktop but all I can see is the black screen with the spinning dots. Now, the way I confirmed that the desktop loaded was I double-clicked on the area where I had some music files and hey, it actually played with audio. (Did the same with some games I had and the game loaded although the screen didn't change). When all this was happening, none of the explorer.exe elements showed up ( CTRL+ALT+DEL doesn't even show anything but it's there since the cursor can detect the options by turning into the hand with the pointer finger sticking out). 
      Thankfully, I can access Safe boot (by using the power button of my laptop to put the laptop in the WinRE) but I still can't pinpoint the culprit. I've spent all day tracing back all the changes I made when it was still operational but to no avail. 
      Tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Graphics Driver (NVIDIA 930M), ran SFC and the file integrity wasn't compromised, tried disabling non-Windows services on startup through msconfig, and I can't even do a Reset since it always says "There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made."
      Any help would be appreciated, being stuck in Safe boot for all eternity is not how I want to go with using my laptop from now on.

      It keeps repeating,  this is the  fourth time already from 100% it goes back to 0%
      Is this normal or it means it has a problem?

      I purchased a NUC for our home / i7 / 16GB RAM. Wife is a Professor at a local University so purchased Win 10 Education through the school. Created ISO, installed and it hung twice at black screen with mouse cursor. Did a hard re-boot and got to Windows signon screen both times but there is only a Guest account an no local account. 

      Tried signing in with my O365 account - but get the We are unable to connect right now. Please check your network and try again later". "despite having LAN and/Or Wireless connectivity. 

      I'm wondering if this is related to the Guest account issue and caused because the Education version doesn't allow a local or O365 user. 
      Tried fresh install again but never getting the create local account screens. System appears installed but cannot access as can't sign on.

      Hello, I'm using windows 10 and have been having an internet connectivity problem (there's a yellow triangle for my Ethernet and wireless connection and it states Internet -secured, no internet). When I access websites, it states "DNS probe finished, no internet connection". I've tried the following and nothing's worked:
      ipconfig /release
      ipconfig /all
      ipconfig /flushdns
      ipconfig /renew
      netsh winsock reset.
      and fully reset my computer (Where It resets to factory settings). I have a feeling there's an issue with the modem, but I'm not sure what I can do on my end. When I diagnose the local connection (wifi), it states ipv4 and ipv6 have no internet connectivity. And on the modem itself dsl and wlan are solid green.
      Please let me know if there's anything that I can do on my end.
