  1. CAN I GO BACK ??? Please


    Hello from your newest member *Sick
    I really was not looking to join another forum BUT here I am, A total NUB & about to junk what was a perfectly Desk Top !

    Long story short is I updated a Win 8 DTop to Win 10 yesterday morning & have not been able to use it sence. EVERY time I boot up in will take twice as long as 8 did With some freezing evedent. Once up, if I sign in or not, If I am using it or not, all seems well for about 2 Mins. THEN my screen goes blank. The DT is still sending some kind of signal to the montior because it does not go to sleep. All I know to do at that point is a hard restart. I've done this over 10 times & do not have enough time to try & fix anything even if I knew how.

    CAN I GO BACK TO WIN 8 ??? Please tell me I can.. I'll just count the 5 to 6 hours wasted at this point to being a dumb a**
    I'm at a total loss as to any options if I can not see a sceen *Mad

    PS: where the heck is spell check in here ???*Confused

    :)

  5. After reading the tutorial I don't think my screen will be viewable long enough for me to get though it all PLUS I'm a more than a little concerned about not knowing/seeing anything for hours ( don't know that I have a option though) . Do I need to be on linefor this to work ?? Thanks Again for any help.

    You don't need to be online. At the login screen, lower right corner, click the power icon, then hold down shift while you click restart. That will get you into troubleshooting options when it restarts.

    Looks like you're having problems with GPU drivers, would you consider doing clean install of W10 ?
    Knowing about most important parts of your machine would be helpful.
    Processor, motherboard and graphic card for instance.

    It's best to wait until it's finished.

    If it keeps on doing this after another 30 minutes at most, then do a hard shutdown and restart the computer to see if it'll pick up where it left off.

  10. After just rereading Option 1 in the Tutorial "go back to pre build" a screen/step seems like it was missing & what is going on right now is not correct ??

    CAN I GO BACK ??? Please

    The reason everything goes longer when downgrading is that it has to save everything first, than to change system which means as much erasing as writing and after return everything in it's previous place.
    It should restart couple of times to do that.

  14. After an extra 40Mins, I just did a hard restart ( PC for crash !!) during the reboot I got a BLIP then Black screen *Eek BUT a short while later the sreen says "Restoring your previous version of Windows" *Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party*Party
