    Windows 10, update and fresh install messed up my laptop


    I'm not a savvy computer person. However, my basics are above average. I can't understand why I need to invest so much time (unsuccessfully) in bringing my laptop to function. After the recent update, my computer got messed up. It even deleted tons of stuff I have in it. I was not able to download an Internet browser of my choice and almost every program was troubled. Including McAfee antivirus. Never had this situation before. Then, I did a fresh install. Computer still is not usable but on top, the screen flickers non stop. I went to display configuration and found the slider to adjust the brightness swings back and forth. I set it to max, rebooted and the system still acts badly. I did not explore if any further problems can be found. Aside of desiring not having to pay for service to fix the problems, I'm very unsatisfied with having to go through this frustration and not being able to use my computer when needed. I assume Microsoft is the king of OS and making his users go through this (I discovered we are large amounts of us in the same place) is not a sensible situation. Is Microsoft decaying? Or pointing out to resource to other OS? I payed good money for a good computer and the machine worked perfectly fine before this update. Or is it that the recent upgrades simply are not fully tested before release? I'm experiencing similar problems with another laptop and Windows 7. Be aware that many of us use the computer for work related chores.

    Please, respond with a doable, sensible and functional solution. Meaning, help us without having to go to IT school to fix problems that should never exist!

    Thank you for you help.

    if system information is needed, pls let me know and I'll post it when requested.

    :)

    Fresh windows install help.

    Hi.
    I have Samsung Series 7 NP7005ZA-S0AUS laptop pc. I decided to do a fresh windows install so I used a flash drive to re-install windows (I formatted the hard drive at the begnining of the installation). When the laptop booted first time in the installation process, I got a screen saying boot menu but it's empty. I clicked alt+ctl+de, the laptop restarts and gets me back to the same screen. I entered the bios and made sure the hd is on the top of the list and save/restarted but same issue. I tried loading bios default settings and that did not help either. I noticed in the boot menu that there are exclamation marks next to the HD and the SATA DVD drives, not sure what that means but they were not there before. I honestly think a bios update can do the trick but there is no way to upgrade the bios of a samsung laptop without Windows like my case so I am stuck.
    Any help will be very much appreciated.
    Notice: The hard drive has 8GB msata built in.
