    Windows 10 - Still Failing?


    I built my new computer just 3 days ago, it's using the Windows 10 x64 Pro October Update (newest, also unactivated), and today I experienced an issue.


    I was watching YouTube videos when suddenly Firefox closed, my other programs became unresponsive / crashed, my mouse pointer began to lag, the monitor screen went black with only the mouse on-screen, so I decided to restart the computer by holding down the power button and turning it on back again, it rebooted normally without problems (so far).


    At first I thought it was my graphics card since I'm using an RTX 2080 Ti and there was a huge buzz regarding their failing rates when they launched, I decided to post about my problems on other forums, one person on Reddit (click to check the post) basically said that it doesn't sound like a GPU problem, but rather one of either: Operating System, RAM or Processor.


    It could be anything really, but I kinda doubt it has anything to do with the processor since it isn't overclocked, I haven't stressed it at all and it's been sitting comfortably around 35° centigrades, but I'm not discarding the possibility, just not likely.


    That leaves me with either the Windows 10 October update or the RAM being the problem, I'm using a single 16GB DIMM (so not dual-channel), it is not overclocked, could the single channel be the problem?


    Bottom Line:


    If for you guys it does sound like a Windows problem, then:


    Q: How do I downgrade to the last stable version and which one is it?


    Q: or what do you think its the problem?


    Thank you

    :)

  2. Windows 10 fails to update


    When you finish testing the Avast suggestion, make sure that you restart your machine.

    Then if the issue persists, please return to the trouble shooting list in post# 89

    I think there are three steps that remain; the WU troubleshooter, reset WU components, and manual WU reset.

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK
