    Updates Affecting Applications Across Entire Computer


    Hello,


    Ever since I downloaded a large update on September 23rd, all my applications have been experiencing issues. Each application steam, discord, browser will either take a long time to load or when it opens it will all of a sudden stop responding for about a minute. It can be both at times too. This did not happen at all before that update and I have a very capable machine. I want to know how I may fix this. I tried uninstalling the update, but it didn't change anything at all. The issues persisted after the uninstall of that update and have persisted through the multiple smaller updates since.

    :)

    How do I reformat entire computer?

    Update:

    • I probably should have taken better notes on what I've already tried
    • I created the USB flash drive as directed in #26. That did indeed install W10
    • I now am at the same point that I described in my post #6, with my drives still being dynamic rather than basic and the following exceptions from my post #6 (not sure)
    - Now all of my data is on the C:\ drive rather than the various folders like "My Documents
    - I apparently need to reinstall my display driver. The display is wonkey (circles are ovals) and I can’t seem to adjust using the settings menu.
    - Other partitions that came installed with my HP notebook like System, Tools, and Recovery now have different drive settings

    So I’ve come almost full circle except with a few steps backwards. I’ll try more carefully to follow Post #2 and #7 as suggested. Possibly I missed as step with those earlier. I’ll also check with my other software to see if there is a simpler way to revert my computer back to the way it was out of the box.

  4. Updates Affecting Applications Across Entire Computer

    My computer crashes frequently when starting a fullscreen application or bluestacks

    Hi Anantha,

    Thank you for contacting Microsoft Community.

    The VIDEO_TDR_ ERROR bug check has a value of 0x00000116. This indicates that an attempt to reset the display driver and recover from a timeout failed.

    I suggest you to remove all the external devices except mouse and keyboard, restart the computer and check whether the issue persists or not.

    If still the issue persist then follow the below steps and check if it helps.

    Step 1: I suggest you to install all the latest pending Windows updates as below and check if it helps.

    • Go to “settings” and click on “update and security”.
    • Under tab “Windows update”, click on the icon “check for updates”.
    • Then once you find the pending updates install it and check.

    Step 2: Also I suggest you to update all the drivers (Display drivers) from the device manager and check if it helps.

    • Press ‘Windows+X’ and go to ‘Device Manager’.
    • Then you can right click on each driver and update it.
    • Restart the computer and check if it helps.

    Hope this information is helpful and do let us know if you need further assistance. We will be glad to assist.
