Windows 10..what fresh new hell is this ???

Post by sleepery jeem » Sun Dec 06, 2015 8:00 pm

:? yesterday I pressed the power button as usual the laptop started up, and then nothing its as if windows didn't even start.

And today I had to switch it on and off 6 times (waited 10 min each time) before the windows starting appeared on screen.

It seems to be working fine just now :|


the only thing I've done different recently is download but not install windows 10, could this be an issue :!:


basically haven't got a clue help.

I downloaded that Windows 10 a few weeks back, was totally lost when it installed, went back to Windows 7 right away.

Could you try restoring to a earlier recent point? Or remove the Windows 10 you downloaded?

My laptop has Windows 10 - I hate it. Everyone in the house hates it, and would rather use the old scummy laptop.

:| yeah it feel all a bit to much like trying to use my nieces phone, I've deleted most of the tile nonsense and spent the last 20 min trying to use the edge browser to add all my fav. sites/accounts etc.

Gave up on that after finding out I could click on the fav. site list I saved from my viao and force the web browser to open, so I've got back all my sites back :) and added a link to my desktop for straight forward access.

:? but for the life of me I cannot make the browser remember my gmail account details and as yet I haven't figured out how to make my Norton security work like it did on my last machine.



Edit : :shock: holy smeg I just watched my first youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gL2kX3EZKSA and the video player on this thing is stunning it looks just like direct PS4 footage.
