    since latest updates: computers turn on differently


    Good morning,

    I have two virtually identical Windows 10 machines (which you can look up below) that boot and are unlocked via my password. Both machines are connected to my Microsoft email account.

    Since the latest updates both machines boot differently from before. Machine A does not do a memory test and enters Windows 10 directly without the memory count etc (yes I have looked at the bios: it is unchanged, I think). Machine B's behavior is different. Previously after shutdown I was able to boot the machine by typing a key on my keyboard (after closing down via "shut down"). Now I have to push the on/off button on the computer.

    Neither is a big deal, to be sure. But I am flummoxed.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    :)

    Computer update

    I'm assuming you have researched your initial list of parts?

    What is your budget?

    How to Dump Networking Parameters?


    Had a customer with this problem, they had a brand new Dell Optiplex 3050, with Windows 10 1709, and Realtek Gbit Family of lan adapters (wired connection). After much troubleshooting (many suggestions listed in the course of this thread), it turned out the PC needed a bios update. Among the updates listed on the dell website for bios version 1.52 (I flashed it with the latest 1.92) was "Update RealtekLOM".

    LOM is "lan on motherboard" and the Realtek has flashable firmware.

    One step for others having this issue is to check their computer manufacturer's website for "Lom" firmware updates for the particular network adapter - whether integrated or an add-in.
