  1. Cannot access computer after a Microsoft update.


    When finished working on my Dell XPS 18 last Friday, at log out, I chose the option presented to "Update & Shut down". Next day I turned on my computer and now cannot get past the Dell logo. I have Windows 10 and Office 365 Home.


    After some research, using my phone, I tried the power on then hit f12 key, this allowed me to access and run diagnostics. This took about 2 hours and came back with positive clearance on all items tested. (The only exception was a warning message that my battery was nearing end of life.)


    I did contact Dell, however they where unable to do more than what I had done and their recommendation was to reset the computer to factory defaults. I chose not to do that at this time as I have a lot of information on this hard drive that I do not want to lose. (My backups are out of date!)


    I am now looking for a solution to get past the Dell logo as I feel that the computer itself is fine but the software was at fault. Cannot remember what the update was for!


    Would appreciate any assistanceCannot access computer after a Microsoft update. :)


    thank you,

    Laraine

    One computer cannot access other network computers.


    So I've tried every troubleshooting step I know:
    • Double checked that Net Bios was enabled
    • Ran a bunch of network commands:
      • flushed DNS
      • registered dns
      • pinged and located the named computers successfully
    • Reset my router to factory settings

    Nothing works when I try to access via explorer. I'm still baffled by the fact that every other computer can access each other AND access this computer. It's just the outgoing connection from this machine that doesn't work.

    Any thoughts?
