  1. Unable to interact with any settings menu as of August 18th 2019


    Hello,

    I have been having a few issues recently with Windows 10. I did try making a video using the Windows game bar recorder to put a video on YouTube of the issue. However, I am having an issue say when I go to Windows update and try to click on the "Download" button, it starts cycling through the different links on the right column of that menu. With the game bar for example when I tried to record my screen, it wouldn't allow me to exit out of any of the additional things that popped up or let me click the record button. It just started highlighting and cycling through different options. I was wondering if anyone knows of any possible fix for this?


    I have done a fresh install of Windows twice within the past week and 3 days. As soon as it installs the first set of Windows update the issue starts. I have also run sfc /scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth with no success in finding any errors. If I try to repair the operating system using my OEM disk or a Windows installation media on a USB creating using the installation media creator, It fails to succeed in any repair option giving me only the ability to reinstall Windows fresh which doesn't help.


    Thanks,

    :)

    Last year at Ignite, we announced Office 2019 – the next perpetual version of Office that includes apps (including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook, and Skype for Business) and servers (including Exchange, SharePoint, and Skype for Business). Today we’re pleased to share the following updates:

  3. Unable to interact with the content on the secondary monitor

    I have three monitors plugged into a evga GTX 1060 ACX 2.0, the system is running latest Windows 10 pro.

    Every night I put the computer to sleep. Occasionally, and more frequently the past week, I wake the computer in the morning to find very strange behavior:

    • Whatever monitor is my main display works perfectly
    • Secondary monitors turn on and show the last content they had (any open browsers, programs, etc)
    • I can move my mouse into the secondary screens and see it moving around just fine
    • When I click or do any kind of interaction on those screen, the visuals do not update (again, mouse around moving is fine)
      • Click a window, the window focus never shows; scroll or press a button on a website, doesn't show any changes; click the Windows button, menu doesn't open
    • However, I can still interact with the screens despite not being able to see what I'm changing
      • Drag a window off the screen and it magically appears on the main display; press the 1-Click buy on an Amazon item, receive it 2-5 business days later
    • Changing the main display changes the screen I can interact with
    • Mucking with the resolution of the secondary monitors does not fix the issue but it does update their visuals
    • Display driver details:
      • Date: 2018-11-12
      • Version: 25.21.14.1694
    • I am in the process of downloading NVidia 2019 drivers to see if that helps

    The only fix I've found so far (with my limited experience debugging display issues) is restarting the computer. Help!

    ***Modified title from: Secondary display content is frozen, can still see mouse and "interact" with frozen windows***
