    Here We Go Again! (Update Rollback #4)


    I don't expect any solutions because apparently ... "There Isn't Any!"

    I just needed to B!t¢h! *Mad


    Yesterday (now, a few days ago) a notice popped up stating that security updates could Not be installed unless the latest version of Windows 10 was installed!

    Hoping against hope and against my knowing better (through the previous three 'updates'), I went ahead and allowed the update!

    Even after months of research and the installing of software that was supposed to prevent the previous disasters (display, completely unusable because of smeared colors and unreadable text) ... Nothing Has Changed!!

    The same messed up display even after trying various 'fixes' and Microsoft suggestions!

    I have read that computers with AMD graphics are having various problems but as of now .. I can't find a solution?

    The funny part?

    When I do the update and the graphics are bad, I go to the device manager, uninstall the display adapter and restart the pc.

    Microsoft automatically installs a display adapter that clears everything up!

    The Not So Funny Part?

    Within 30 seconds, Microsoft deletes whatever adapter they installed (the good one) and reverts back to the crappy one!!

    Try as I might, I can't prevent them from doing this!

    I also suspect that more than just the display adapter is the problem because I have tried a dozen different ones that are compatible with my computer and none of them work!
    (All of them from either Lenovo or AMD)

    I have had contact with both lenovo and AMD.
    AMD has heard about the problem but has no answers!

    So ... Rollback #4!

    My pc is a Lenovo desktop.

    Processor: AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Compute Cores 4C+8G (Cores: 2)
    Memory: 11 Gbytes (DDR3)

    Video: AMD Radeon R7 Graphics (1 Gb)

    Disk: ST2000DM001-1ER164 (2 Tb)
    Operating System: Microsoft Windows 10 Home (64-bit)

    :)

    Here we go again

    Go into media player and find the options (depends which version your running, but something like Tools .. Options) then go to the "File Types".

    Select all the file types you want to have run in Media Player.

    In future, when you click on that file type, Media Player will be called instead of the Nokia / Apple / Whatever-other-player you have installed.

  4. Here We Go Again! (Update Rollback #4)

    Hi mrclose. Yes Windows updates drivers and I have a similar experience with my wireless card. Every major release I get the latest and greatest driver and can connect to nothing. I revert to Feb 2014 and all is good. Now to prevent my friend from updating ....

    I found this article and this is what I'm using in 1703. It must be working as my Wi-Fi card requires an ancient driver and I know there are current updates, I get the most recent one every major update, like V1703.

    https://www.howtogeek.com/302595/how...dware-drivers/

    In the article quite a ways down there is a link labelled “Disable Automatic Driver Updates Hacks”
    This downloads a zip file with two registry hacks. Read the paragraph above the link. I used the hack on my V1703 (Creators). Likely have to run Hack after each major update, Anniversary, Creator, XXXX.

    Keep a copy of working driver. If you don't have please find it AMD and keep it in a special place. The Fall Creators is a coming down the hill.

    That hack was one of the first things that I tried after the second update/rollback.
    (It didn't/doesn't work for me)

    As I noted in my post ... I believe that there is a problem, not only with the 'on-board' display but a problem elsewhere?

    For instance:
    If I right-click on the desktop and select AMD RADEON SETTINGS , the following pops up:

    (missing?)

    Even though the display is great looking.


    Here We Go Again! (Update Rollback #4) [​IMG]


    And the device manager shows:


    Here We Go Again! (Update Rollback #4) [​IMG]

    (working properly?)

    I have had contact with both lenovo and AMD.
    AMD has heard about the problem but has no answers!

    I'm at the point of just praying that microsoft wont be limiting the number of times I will be able to do the rollbacks!

    I see you have the AMD A10 CPU with the built on GPU (aka APU)......do you have a separate GPU installed or are you just using the GPU off of the CPU?

    Ahh....it's integrated, so you're using the GPU off of the GPU. Your issue may be that there's not enough RAM allocated to the GPU. You will need to check and adjust in the BIOS.

    Here We Go Again! (Update Rollback #4)

    Memory doesn't seem to be a problem.

    AMD and MS seem to conflict on who is at fault.

    All of these updates played nice when installed but .. I have no clue as to what they are!

    MS always has names for their crappy updates but only give you numbers when they are installed!

    I have no time or patience to look up the update that is killing my display!
    (Obviously, it's not one of these)
