    Laptop all screwed up after Win 10 Upgrade


    Apparently I allowed a Win 10 upgrade to laptop -- which is nowall screwed up ...


    1 Now starts with Metro window & rejects re-setting to Full?!

    2 All of my favorite Taskbar icons are now gone?!

    3 Opening Chrome browser fails ... browser Opens & then disappears?!

    4 Hidden Icons box is nowhere to be found on Taskbar?!

    5 Search response is flakey at best -- with a different font*

    6 Adobe Flash update refuses to complete - insisting I close anot-running Chrome browser


    In Summary: ARGGGGGGH!!


    2 Questions:

    1 Has my machine been hacked by M$ perhaps an early "April FoolsSecurityRollup"?

    2 Anyone have a better fix than attempting a System Restore?

  2. Upgrade from 8.1 to Win 10

    Hi Roy,

    Welcome to Microsoft Community.

    • Is this laptop compatible with Windows 10?
    • Are there drivers for Windows 10 for this laptop on HP website?

    I would suggest you to temporarily disable/un-install any HP's software if you have installed.

    Also, I would suggest you to start the upgrade by un-installing the updated drivers and installing basic windows drivers.

    Follow the steps mentioned below:




    • Right on the start icon and click on device manager

    • Expand Network/Device adapters, Select the adapter, right click and click on un-install.

    • Restart the computer.

      Now start the upgrade from an ISO and see if that helps.

      Hope this helps.

    is hardware OK (Win 7) for upgrade to windows 10

    I think in one of the other PC with win 7 or win 8.1 I run media creators tools and in some step prompt/found graphics card not supported... for win 10. I didn't found alone reading specs of win 10, but the tool says me... after changed graphics card the tool said all OK and continued OK with upgrade... That I ask to reach this step in this current PC - win 7 - must be all OK for the upgrade? Or must continue to upgrade to show this?
    and got to point

    • UPGRADE this PC now
    • Create media(DVD, USB stick, ISO)
    is hardware OK (Win 7) for an upgrade to windows 10 for this PC???

    Laptop all screwed up after Win 10 Upgrade

    Laptop screws and broken spinning threaded nuts :-(

    Hello
    Is there a trick to open original never opened laptop screws ?
    If I open like 10 screws about 2/10pcs always have broken\loose spinning brass threaded nuts.
    I have opened a Lenovo(2008) and a HP(2015) laptop when trying to fit SSDs and both ended up with some spinning threaded nuts.
    -> When unable to open the case I just end up using a DVD drive caddy for the damn SSDs.
    • Laptop screws always have that massive amount of tip goo (=red or blue colored rubber thread seal) in threads which I believe is causing the spinning screw issue. Please Chinese we don't need the "goo".
    • Or the Chinese just over tighten the screws.
    • Also cheap thin plastic around brass nuts.
