    Every time major update is released it kills Windows Hello on my HP laptop. Why???


    Every single time a major update is released, Windows Hello stops working on my HP laptop. EVERY SINGLE TIME and ONLY AFTER A WINDOWS MAJOR UPDATE.


    Ergo, it is the fault of Microsoft. Usually, disabling the camera, restarting and enabling the camera then restarting again will fix the fault but it appears this time that they have gone all out to make the problem worse. I now get "0xA00F4243<CameraReservedByAnotherApp> (0xC00D3704)".


    It is not, of course, being used by any other app. Nor can I get any other app to open the camera because of this fault. Disabling/uninstalling/resetting/driver update/all the other usual options have this time failed to solve the problem. I have run process examine and killed anything that may be an issue, which didn't help. I have updated all drivers and all Windows updates which didn't help. My Antivirus is not blocking the camera and neither is any other program (I disabled any that may have that option and restarted).


    This is an issue with every single major Windows Update and needs to be fixed ASAP and never inflicted again by future updates. It is absolutely infuriating. How can I fix this?

    HP Envy Laptop Battery not charging after Windows 10 installation

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting on Microsoft Communities.

    I suggest you to un-install and re-install battery drivers from Device manager and check. Follow the steps:

    • Press Windows Key + X.
    • Click on Device Manager.
    • Expand Batteries and right click on Batteries ACPI and click on Un-install.
    • Restart the computer and check.

    If the issue persist, I suggest you to visit HP Envy website and check whether HP has released any firmware updates for Windows 10. If so, please go ahead and install them and check with the issue.

    Next Major Windows 10 Update Named "Spring Creators Update"

    The next Windows 10 service pack major update has been named "Spring Creators Update." Windows Insider Program users toying with Build 17618 of the operating system spotted a listing of all the major updates of Windows 10 known to the build, when running "Get-VMHostSupportedVersion" in Power Shell. The last entry reads "Microsoft Windows 10 Spring Creators Update 1803." The version number (1803 in this case), often coincides with the public release date of the update. The Fall Creators Update 1709, released in 2017-09 (September) to Insiders. Going by that convenion, Spring Creators Update could see a "branded" Insider preview build this month, 2018-03 (March), with a public release usually 3-4 weeks after, presumably before Summer kicks in.
