  1. Location not available


    Hi
    Switched on laptop yesterday, windows 10 update started automatically. Took about an hour then a power surge. Powered up the laptop again , got the log in screen for my pin but then screen goes blank except for continually flashing the "Location not available" window and the search box at the bottom of the screen.

    I have tried most youtube so called "easy fixes" and none have worked

    Location not available [​IMG]


    Have tried to attached a movie of what happens and image of the screen but don't think it has worked

    Any new ideas please people?

    :)

  3. Quick Access - "Location is not available"

    Have just done Windows 10 update from 8.1 - very smooth well done MS!

    Have encountered one small problem. In Windows Explorer have discovered "Quick Access" list. Clicking on one folder gives pop-up box "Location is not available" . Displays path which does not exist plus some suggestions as to what might have happened. If
    I right click on folder in list and select "Remove from Quick Access" nothing happens.

    How do I get rid of this folder from the list?

  4. Location not available

    Location service is greyed out

    Hi Shahriar,

    Thank you for responding.

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused for you, I suggest you to try the below troubleshooting steps and check If it helps.

    Step 1: Steps to turn on the Location settings.

    • Login as an administrator.
    • Press Windows key, type Location settings and select
      Change location settings.
    • Check whether Location for this device is On by clicking on
      Change
      .
    • Also turn on Location as well.

    Step 2: And as you are unable to set the service Geolocation service to automatic, I suggest you to run SFC scan and check.

    System File Checker is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files.

    Follow the below steps:


    • Right click on the Start button, click on
      Command Prompt (Admin).

    • Type “sfc /scannow” without the quotes and hit
      Enter.

    • After the scan, restart the computer and check for the issue.

    Try to set the service to automatic by following the steps provided in the above post by Praveen Venugopal.

    Hope it helps. Kindly update the status of the issue, we will be happy to help you.
