  1. Problem with Settings and Windows Security apps.


    OK, this is a real puzzle.

    Since installing the very latest Insider Preview, I've had a strange problem occurring.


    When I turn on the PC and it's finished booting up, when I try to open Settings, all I get is the Cog appear, and then after 20-30 seconds it just closes back down on its own.

    ALSO when this happens, if I try and open Windows Security, all I see is this :



    IF I reboot the system, either just using Reset, or Shut Down, sometimes they are both back to normal, other times the Settings are back to normal but the Windows Security is still the same. (Another Reboot usually fixes this, but not for long)

    Full Virus scans (WHEN I have windows security working normally) and full scans using up-to-date Malawarebytes report nothing is found.

    Anyone else have this problem? Is there any solution available, or is it another bug in the Insider Previews creeping in?


    My Windows 10 version is version 1803 (Build 18219.1000) 64bit

    :)

  2. Sound card amplification settings

    Yeah unfortunately ASUS and Realtek are not stepping up and fixing this it seems. Wherever I see such problems mentioned on forums some users are suggesting just uninstalling the Realtek driver and using the Windows audio driver.

    That's what the auto setting will do since you're over the 1333 mark it jumps to the next step which isn't listed or officially supported I assume by that ram.

    At this point though I would suggest dropping the multi one step or .5 so that we can get something stable and possibly take the heat issue out of the picture for now.
