    Checking For Updates - Never Ending Though


    Hello There


    My Dell Latitude E6420 running Windows 10 Pro, Inrel i7 VPro no longer 'catches' the Windows Insider (Slow Recommended) Updates. Since this problem started, I have had 2 or 3 updates so far installed in 2 other machines.


    All I can see is the message 'Checking For Updates' and the running DOTS going on with no end or time limit to it. One time I was working on this machine after clicking to 'Check For Updates'' and that is when it all started.


    I can no longer see 'Check For Updates' to click. As soon as the 'Updates & Security' item is clicked, the screen defaults into this marathon straight away. So, my dear Windows/MS Experts, please advise what can we do to get all these back to normal. Thanks.

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    geforce experience takes an age to load..

    Well that's why I asked. Mine is on SSD and takes 11 seconds. Your list of games will not appear if it has not checkd for updated suggested settings for awhile until it checks.

    When it says it is refreshing the game list, it is checking, because NVIDIA periodically updates suggested settings. Plus it will look for those for new games you have installed.

    So, the less it is run, the slower it will be.

    Minor suggestion for Check for updates

    No, I know that. Exactly where I suggest this to be changed, please note.
    Sorry for not being clear.

    The Check for updates small window currently does not show what I ask to be added - program version. Please consider adding this. Many other programs have this, so I suggest for GPU-Z to have it too.
