  1. Recent update broke my computer


    A week or so ago, I updated windows with the most recent update. The next day I turn it on to use it and it started up fine, got to the login screen fine but when I logged in my desktop was gone, all I had was the tool bar on the bottom. When I would scroll my mouse down to the tool bar it would show that something is loading, if I clicked anything, no matter where my mouse was it showed it loading and then the screen would lock up and crash and go back to the mouse only showing it was loading at the tool bar. I left it for at least an hour to see maybe something was finishing? There was no changes. I ctrl alt deleted and tried bringing up the task manager, it would bring up the screen with the options but when I tried the task manager nothing happened. Did that a few times all with no avail. I brought up that screen again and logged out and it went to the log in screen just fine. Tried everything once again in a different profile, all the same things happened again. Tried again in safe mode, same problem. I decided to roll back my updates and eventually that worked, thankfully. But now I'm going to be forced to update again. I would prefer to be able to continue to use my laptop, it might be old now, bought it 2011, but it still works for what I need. What can I do? Do I attempt the update again and maybe brick my computer? I have no trust with microsoft currently and I also cant afford to buy a new laptop as I've been laid off since mid march due to the pandemic.

  2. Windows 10 update broke my computer?

    One of the possible reasons why your PC fails to boot into normal mode are broken components on the boot configuration data of your system. To isolate your concern, we suggest that you perform the following steps to trigger Safe Mode through the Windows
    Recovery Environment (WinRE) option. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Improper shutdown process
    • Turn on your computer. When the Windows logo is visible, unplug the power source of your computer. Perform this step three times.
    • On the fourth time that you turn on your computer, just simply wait for the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) window to appear.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click Restart.
    • Once your computer restarts, you will see a list of options. Press the F4 key to start your computer in Safe Mode.

    We also recommend that you perform a system restore after booting in safe mode. This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore
    point was made. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • In the Search box, type Control Panel and press Enter.
    • On the upper-right window, under View by, click Category and select Large icons.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.
    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select Next > Finish.

    Let us know if the solution above works for you.

    Update Broke Computer Need Help!

    Windows 10 Upgrade
    According to this list, your PC isn't on Acer's approved list for Win 10. Could you check that?

    This is an older PC which came with Win 7. Have you ever clean installed Win 10 on it?

    • AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core Processor
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • 2GB DDR3 RAM
    • 320GB HDD
    • DVD Rewriter
    • Integrated Graphics
    • PS.VB1E3.082

    We can only proceed step by step.

    So chkdsk and SFC /Scannow are ok. But any attempt to reset your PC or run DISM fails.

    Is this what you tried? I'm not 100% clear what the above means. Clean install or this procedure?
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    If you tried this, it's possible it failed as you need (it seems) some 500Mb of unallocated space on your hard disk.
