  1. Windows 10 destroyed my pc


    Hi

    Windows 10 has been good to from the start to the latest updates. First it wouldn't let me use my keyboard anymore, and yes it works on any other computer I have.
    From yesterday until to day, it won't start anymore.

    Windows 7, here I come again.
    It is an old computer, about 7 years. But as them claimed, it should work on old computer to. This is really annoing. ...

    Kindly a Winfan that is a little bit disappointed.....

    :)

  2. If Microsoft wants the world to change over to Windows 10, why don't they read the problems here and fix UPDATE?

    windows 10 pro destroyed all four of my pcs. Stay with windows 7 pro people. It updates itself at will and either corrupts or destroys all of your settings. Microsoft--fix this problem. Huge mistake to go to Windows 10

    Windows 10 destroyed my pc

    Hi Peter
    What will not start any more ? Computer ? W10 ? Keyboard ?
    If KB, wired or wireless, did you try another port or plugging it in after windows start ?
    If W10 would not start did you check disk for errors or bad sectors ?

  5. The computer would not start (windows). Just locked up with circle circling around..
    The KB is wireless, tried in all the ports, does not work at all on that computer/windows anymore. But works everywhere else.
    It don`t work in bios either, so could be the KB. But think it is strange that it woks on all other. (Logitech MK510?)
    Tried to connect it before and after, tried to remove it from devices. Nothing helps, even tried to download the "drivers" from Logitech.

    I have tried that, when it then booted up, I can`t get any network (cable).

    I really think this Win version is not good for old computers, can`t blame them. But they should change there advertisement.

  6. Windows 10 didn't destroy anything. You just didn't finish the process. You didn't check to see if USB drivers were missing, or if they needed to be reinstalled. Same with the wireless keyboard drivers, if needed.

    Assuming your install activated, back up your data, do a clean install of Windows 10 (what most of us have done already), and then load your system drivers that are missing. Problem solved.

    If wireless (or any other KB) doesn't work in BIOS than it's not fault of OS (any OS).
    If anything doesn't work in OS (any OS) than it's problem with drivers.

    That's what I have done, used the update. Then reinstalled clean. It has gone 2-3 months, then the KB stoped working, and then the hangup. And after using the rescue part the network did not work anymore.

    I see that the KB most likely is garbage, so that is out of the problem list.

    But either way, it should not be this kind of problem with something that should be better than the old.
    If it is an update, then MS have done something wrong.

    But thanks for your comment's, and helpout. Sorry it did not help this time.
    Maybe I'll try on another computer sometime.

    Don't have to much time to hassle with this now, it has to work so 7 it is.

    Thanks

    From your original post, it seems to me that you're using Windows 10 Insider Preview, and you must now be on Build 14279. Since you didn't elaborate, I can only guess. That's what I'm using and it's far from perfect at this moment! *Sad

    What you did tell us is that you don't have time to mess with a Preview that doesn't work 100%, so I'm in agreement with you, Petter. However, I wouldn't quite go back to Windows 7 . . . I'd use the Media Creation Tool which should install the "November Update" or RTM version of Windows 10. Especially since you say Windows 10 has been good thus far.

    Since you've already had Windows 10 on your machine, you won't have to reinstall Windows 7; just use the Media Creation Tool to reinstall Windows 10 to the RTM version.

    You can get the tool here: Windows 10

    Ah, so if you've never used the Preview (Insider) version of Windows 10 and it's been more than 30 days since you upgraded from Windows 7, you can't go back to Windows 7. *Sad Which is a bummer when something like this happens.

    Get a new keyboard first. *Smile

    Wireless Keyboards also need the Legacy USB setting enabled in the bios, since some will not work if that is off. Also some wireless keyboards will not work at all in the Bios, because the mfg never thinks about that with the hardware for the receiver and the keyboard.

    This is why I stick with a wired keyboard, along with the fact that a wired keyboard cannot be sniffed by someone looking for a wireless keyboard signal.

    I can't remember how many years I've used wireless keyboards and mice. I don't remember ever having to use a Legacy USB setting with my keyboard or mouse. They just work.

    A small history of USB:

    USB was invented and developed by Ajay Bhatt at Intel in 1996. Version 1.0 wasn't all that great, had bugs and ran at 12 Mbps. The release of USB 1.1 took care of the bugs and was a bit better with two speeds: 1.5 Mbps or 12 Mbps; still rather slow in today's world.

    Then in April 2000, along came "high speed" USB 2.0! Rated at 40 times faster than USB 1.1, it runs at 480 Mbps or 57 megabytes per second. Using the same cables and hardware as USB 1.1, USB 2.0 maintains backwards compatibility with older devices. IOW, a USB 1.1 keyboard or mouse should work with USB 2.0. If you want, you can even plug a USB 2.0 device into a USB 1.1 hub and it most likely will work.

    The newest standard is USB 3.0, which runs at 400 megabytes per second while still maintaining backward compatibility with older 2.0 and 1.1 devices. Now, if you want the full speed of USB 3.0, you'll have to have a USB 3.0 device and a USB 3.0 cable to connect to your USB 3.0 capable computer.

    So, at this point, there's no reason to worry about a wireless keyboard not working with USB any.version. That is unless you might have a really, really, really old wireless keyboard that will only work with USB 1.0.

  15. Thanks for the info about USB.
    That gave me even more good feelings for throwing it away. It had to be destroyed. Windows 10 destroyed my pc :)
