Q: creators upgrade problem

I have an Acer aspire e1-571 I have tried several times to load 'creators upgrade' using the upgrade assistant app: It loads to 85% and then says there is a problem. I have tried a reset, but choosing to 'keep files' or 'remove everything' I get the same 'there is a problem'. I then downloaded the 'refresh tool' from Microsoft, that ran for 45mins,and failed. Any ideas please.

Preferred Solution: creators upgrade problem

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

On My T420 I have just upgraded from Windows 1611 (Anniversary Upgrade) to 1703 (Creators Upgrade). As a result Device Manager reports a conflict in a basic system install stating no driver is installed for VEN 1180 - DEV E822. This is the Ricoh Multicard reader.Under Windows 10 1611 it had worked without problems. It works fine under Ubuntu 16.04 (has dual boot system).I have tried installing the latest driver version released 8.6.2015 stated to be for Windows 10 and although no conflict occurs during the install, following a reboot it still shown as missing under Device Manager.The T420 is not listed under Lenovo's list of tested devices for Windows 10 1703.Has anyone else had any expereince or knowledge on what can be tried?Maybe I will just try the Windows 8 driver (version 2.22.18) from the Windows 10 driver was produced from.

Just installed Win10 Creators..... PROBLEM: When I close the lid on my Lenovo U430p then open the lid, all the open windows on my desktop get resized and re-positioned to the left of the screen. It's like the resolution is changing when I close the lid, then changing back when I open it. Fo a split second while opening, I can see the screen has shrunk to the top left corner of the screen. I have the settings to do NOTHING when I close the lid. So the computer is NOT set to sleep and is NOT set to turn the monitor off when closing the lid.   Tried downgrading to official drivers from Lenovo site Tried updating manually to latest INTEL version So that's three different versions that all have the same problem.....   Any comments or solutions?

Hi! I am using a C40-05 All in one, it comes with an A330 AMD Graphic Card.  Since I updated to Windows 10 Anniversary, and also with creators update, it detects the graphic card as an M330, which causes huge problems, like a lot of time to startup windows, and an eternal lag once it starts (i'm talking about 10 minutes just to move the mouse, or even other tasks).  I have tried diagnostic utilities, and they all say it is ok (both hardware and software).  The only way to use the computer is to go to device administrator and disable the graphic card, however, once disabled the computer losses a lot of performance of course, specially in graphics. Please help me, I have tried even to reinstall Windows from 0, with the option to format and download directly windows from MS website.

Hey, I was wondering which dvd movie software is the best. I have roxio 8.0, i'm not that impressed with it. It has a lot of features, but it takes a very long time and when i make chapters the sound doesn't match the motion. I saw that Roxio 9.0 came out and can burn blue ray which i don't plan on getting soon but it's something to think about. Are there any outstanding programs out there? thanks

That's relative to your needs and budget, IMO the best DVD authoring software is DVD without completely breaking the bank is Workshop by Ulead but it's not cheap and the video editing features are limited. For something similar to Roxio look there Movie Factory or Video Studio product.

but it takes a very long timeClick to expand...

That would be realative to the speed of your machine and a few other factors. All things being equal different software may be slightly faster or slower but it won't be a significant amount.

and when i make chapters the sound doesn't match the motion.Click to expand...

Do you mean when you hit the chapter the sound is out of sync for the video? By your statement I'll assume this only happens when you use chapters?

Anyhow Roxio and Nero both are not very good tools when it comes to video, try some of the trials from above.

Hi, thought this might cause some confusion so I thought we should look at it.

Open a cmd as admin (need to mod the system to get back cmd prompt from win + x, replaced by powershell) OR use a powershell prompt as admin and type:- cmd.exe, this opens an elevated cmd prompt within powershell.

With an elevated cmd prompt, copy paste the following cmd:-(highlighted in red)

tasklist /svc /fi "imagename eq svchost.exe" > 0 & notepad 0

Press enter, notepad will open with a list of all svchost processes, you will see a lot of them, (if you open task Manager, you will see windows processes have greatly increased in number). MS have no longer grouped svchost processes, they are now all single processes and have individual PID's.

The original idea to save on memory has been deprecated, MS now believe that most systems have sufficient RAM for processes to be individual, if you have less then 3.5 gb the processes will still be grouped, if ever you needed an argument to increase RAM, this certainly helps. I think this makes tasklist much easier to interpret and improves system diagnostics, so I am for it.

UPDATE: We?re seeing that some small percentage ~0.1% of eligible Mobile devices, including variants of the Alcatel IDOL 4S, are not being offered Build 15204. We?re working on updating the targeting to include them for the next flight.

Devices not on this list will not officially receive the Windows 10 Creators Update nor will they receive any future builds from our Development Branch that we release as part of the Windows Insider Program. However, Windows Insiders who have devices not on this list can still keep these devices on the Windows 10 Creators Update at their own risk knowing that it?s unsupported.

Hi, I updated Windows 10 with "Creators Update" and since then, the Windows cannot identify my notebook - HP 255 G2 and I cannot findy any driver. HP Support Assisstant does not help.  I found a website, where HP shows type of products that were tested for the Creators Update, and HP 255 G2 is not listed. Therefore, it has not been tested yet, I suppose. I do not wonder, therefore, why my OS cannot identify the notebook, but my question is: Is the model HP 255 G2 going to be tested and will it be resolved in order to be recognized by Windows 10 after Creators Update? Thank you

Hi,There are a couple of options.First lets perform a disk cleanup and try to create space on drive. Right-click on the drive c: in any folder and click on properties.  Now click on disk cleanup and wait while the space gets calculated, In the next window click on clean up system files and wait for further calculation. Now in the window that appears mark all the unnecessary file (such as old updates, temporary files etc...) and press OK and delete the files. See if there is enough space for installation.Insert a Usb pendrive with at least 10 GB of free space and start computer. During installation of the update if there is not enough space it should give you the option to use the drive for installation purpose. After the installation is complete you can remove drive.Take a look at this link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-update/not-enough-disk-space-for-annive...Hope it helps,David

Get to Know the Windows 10 Creators Update with These 150 Screenshots

The 150-picture gallery
Microsoft Edge is one particular app getting improved, and in addition to features such as pinning tabs aside and more extensions, the browser is also benefiting from new security tools, such as click-to-run for Flash content you come across online.

Windows Defender is evolving to Windows Defender Security Center to group all security features in the OS, while the new blue light filter is there to make sure that you can continue working on the PC during the night by reducing the amount of blue generated by your monitor.

The Creators Update is undoubtedly worth installing, and the huge photo gallery below is supposed to help you get to know the new OS version before you actually proceed with the deployment. There might be other new features that we didn?t get to include in the gallery, but the 150 pics should be enough to help you get an idea of what?s to come in this update.

In the meantime, if you want to try out the Creators Update yourself before it goes live via Windows Update, you can download the preview builds that were released to insiders. Build 15063 is RTM and comes with the same features as the one you?ll get April 11.Click to expand...

ISO files for Windows 10 build 15063 (rumored to be the Release to Manufacturing (RTM) build) recently appeared on Microsoft?s servers and there are two ways to go about the installation process.

As The Verge notes, you can grab the ISO files (in your choice of 32-bit or 64-bit flavors), mount them using Windows 10?s File Explorer and run the setup.exe file to upgrade to the Creators Update.

Optionally, as Neowin outlines, you can pick up a new version of the Windows 10 Update Assistant and use it to update to build 15063. Be warned, however, that if you have the previous version of the Assistant tool on a PC running the Anniversary Update (or an earlier version of Windows 10), it?ll tell you that your device is up-to-date and leave it at that.

Microsoft as of writing has not revealed when it plans to officially roll out the Creators Update to the general public (it hit the Windows Insider fast and slow rings last week). Although this appears to be the final RTM build, it?s always possible that Microsoft could squeeze in a last-minute bug fix or two between now and the public launch which most expect will take place on April 11 (Patch Tuesday).

A:Creators Update arrives early on the PC

Thanks @BoraMurdar, I plan the upgrade in the next few days.
Also, reading about those who have already installed it: the update file weighs about 3 GB, and at the end of the installation you will be prompted to restart the computer to complete the installation and setup. The download time depends very much on the speed of your line, while the actual installation is in about forty minutes, but even here very much depends on the power of the computer.

Next week, Microsoft will release the Windows 10 Mobile Creators Update for just thirteen handsets, but the rollout has already begun for PCs. Last week, Microsoft began to push the latest version of its OS to PCs through Windows Update, but it's not making its way to all machines at the same time.

Microsoft said that "the first phase will target newer devices, especially those we tested together with our OEM hardware partners", before gradually expanding to more devices. Last year's Windows 10 Anniversary Update deployment took several months to complete, and the company has said the Creators Update will take a similar amount of time.

It's not yet clear exactly which PCs Microsoft is prioritizing with the first wave of its rollout, as there's no definitive list of those devices. But if the Creators Update isn't yet showing up for your PC in Windows Update, Microsoft has made it easy for you to jump the queue and upgrade to the latest version right now.Click to expand...

I was hoping the Windows 10 Creators Update would fix the issue but sadly it doesn't.I  have bought my monitor this january 2017 brand new from BestBuy and I was really proud to get an HP because they are generally good products. It was shipped with HP My Display to enhance the calibration of the monitor. I have tried many possibilities to install drivers first then drivers after, Nvidia drivers before and after, safe start, even with only this HP My Display app with the system but sadly it doesn't works, always quit inexpectedly. I have called HP and a tech assistant told me 3 months ago they would check and update the drivers and that MyDisplay app. Today, I have checked those date beside each driver on HP drivers site and it still says 2015, 2016. My computer is an Envy 700-349 running Windows 10 with everything updated and I have to work without those useful apps shipped with the monitor. It let me an aftertaste of HP support really sad. Why selling products that we accept to pay more to get a trusty brand if they are not really superior after all. I have received an automated post from a tech pro from HP with a suggestion to update my OS and ask me to give him/her thumbs up for his/her reputation. Sorry guys but you don't deserve it. If you work hard to build a reputation on HP, let me say you should work every aspect not only on new products because when we have to choose new products, the past experience counts when get new hardware.

Current solid state drives need 'time to themselves' to do automatic garbage collection. Crucial recommends 6-8 hours (sounds like the hours when I'm getting some shut-eye) for the process to work.

Perhaps I don't understand what goes into operating system and motherboard design, but to me it makes sense for a user in 2014 to be able to select an overnight system setting that would provide power to any installed SSD's so they could optimize their performance, that would simultaneously deny power to other parts of the system like the processor and monitor that are power consumers and that might be spared wear-and-tear by the setting during the SSD optimization process.

Has this already been thought through and implemented or does it have lower priority than pretty, semi-transparent, pulsating tile icons? If it has, I have yet to find the search terms that point me to the solution.

Running the system with the BIOS setup screen burning into the monitor seems primitive to me.

Windows 10 Creators Update is already feature-complete, so Microsoft is specifically focused on fixing bugs and improving performance now, and a new report coming from unofficial channels indicates that the RTM version is on the table for the first half of March.

While a confirmation cannot be provided at the moment, WZor, who has a good track on leaking information on previous versions of Windows, reveals via WinCore that Windows 10 Creators Update RTM could be signed off by Microsoft between March 7 and March 14 this year.

While such a target date does make sense and it all sounds like a Captain Obvious report, it?s important to know that once the RTM version becomes available, no other changes would be made to the operating system. In other words, Microsoft has less than a month to finalize work on the Creators Update.

The existing bug bash programs are obviously essential for the final version of Windows 10 Creators Update, so the next few builds would include plenty of fixes and zero new features.

Insiders getting it first
Windows insiders who are participating in Microsoft?s preview program will be the first to get the RTM version of Windows 10 Creators Update, and if this report is accurate, they should get it shortly after March 14.

Windows 10 Creators Update is due in April, and according to people close to the matter, it?ll be version 1704, which is a direct reference to its release date. Microsoft labels Windows releases with versions that include the ye... Read more

Following the release of the Windows 10 Anniversary Update this past summer, Microsoft on Wednesday shared details regarding what?s next in line for its operating system.

The Windows 10 Creators Update, as it?s being called, will deliver a wealth of new features and improvements. As rumored earlier this month, Microsoft has given its core graphics application ? Paint ? a major facelift (and a new name, Paint 3D).

Microsoft General Manager, Megan Saunders, explained the goal of the new app is to make 3D creation as simple as taking a photo or video on your smartphone. She used a phone to 3D-scan a sandcastle and imported it into the app for manipulation. Microsoft has a new website, Remix3D.com, where users can upload and share original content.Click to expand...

OneDrive File Placeholders: Windows 8.1 introduced ?placeholder? files for OneDrive?files that appeared in File Explorer but were actually stored in the cloud and only downloaded when you needed them. Microsoft removed this feature in Windows 10, but an ?on-demand sync? feature looks likely to arrive in Windows 10 to replace it.

The Creators Update is bringing important updates to both PCs and smartphones, and although Microsoft has been trying to keep its devices in sync, it appears that the release won?t take place on all devices at the same time.
Since the release of the Creators Update is just around the corner, we?ve asked Microsoft whether it plans to update all devices at the same time or prioritize the launch on a specific platform. And it appears that between the two, PCs are Microsoft?s priority with the Creators Update, so they?ll be the first getting the new OS version, while Windows 10 Mobile devices will receive it at a later time. Here?s Microsoft?s very short statement on this:

?The initial update will be for desktop, but other versions will be available thereafter,? a company spokesperson told us.

No target date for phones, but it?s probably ?soon?
As far as Windows 10 Mobile is concerned, it?s not clear when exactly the firm wants to release the Creators Update, but it?s once again the ?soon? trademark that?s already causing so much frustration in the phone community.
