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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Welcome to TenForums, Tique.

No, Build 10547 won't be a prerequisite. Updates generally install the latest build no matter which build you're running.

Are you running any type of Windows 10 now? If you are, then you will not need a product key of any kind. Make sure you are logged in on your MSN account. If you are not running any kind of Windows 10 now, then you will need to activate your system through an upgrade process that still does not require a product key.

I wanted to change my power and sleep settings for my display.

At first it didn't seem to work. Working through it methodically however, I found there are FOUR places that can be set for the same thing!

(1) Win10 Start/Settings/Display/Power&Sleep. I set it to never

(2) Below that in Additional Power Settings I was taken to the Control Panel. Checking the Preferred Plan settings the screen setting didn't reflect the change above.

(3) From the CP is another option: 'when to turn off display'

(4) Finally there are the "advanced power settings".

This is ridiculous. Surely all I need set is the initial (1) Settings? And this doesn't even include setting the Screen Saver which seems to be over-ridden by the other settings!

Obviously Microsoft have got their knickers in a bit of twist with some settings undertaken in Settings and others still in CP.

I have seen someone who said it takes a restart to make the changes work for that setting. Did you find this to be true? Did settings work for you?

Hi everyone. I'm a insider since all the way back to win 10 build 9xxx. I have 2 laptops installed with Win 10 10130. One is updated with 10586 and no problems. But on another laptop, since updated to 10547 every major release build for fast ring always failed to update. I'm stuck at 10547 forever! Tried google-fu but no result. I didnt want to reinstall again (i know that i take a risk of installing Insider builds but right now I cant reinstalled due to family reason)

Both of my laptops are old HP with Intel C2D and 3GBs of RAM. From Vista's era....

I have updated fine I thought, went to get the ESD from the windows~bt directory, but there was only some files in a 'panther' folder (I think), very few files there (I have converted esd to iso severral times during the beta so know what to look for), certainly no esd.

Does anyone know the address to download the esd so I can clean install?

Have started to have issues with my wired 360 controller not working right in games which only happened with this update (they continually switch to keyboard input when I use the analogue sticks), so I'm hoping a clean install will sort out the issue for me.

I am running dual monitors and the secondary monitor hides it perfectly.

Does anyone have any idea why and what can be done to auto hide the task bar again.

It is covering up the bottom lines of everything that I open on the main screen.

I went back to Build 1047 from the latest preview build (10565) due to system stability issues.
The restore went fine, all my files and settings stayed.
The problem happened a few hours after restoring.
I needed to preview a photo that needed photoshopping for a personal project.
I tried to open the photo, but the built in photo app won`t open for some reason
The same thing happened for videos and a few other.

The insider hub, contact support, and setting opened just fine.

The icons are blank for some reason. (Showed in attached thumbnail)

For example, when I wanted to open a photo, it show a error like this
Windows cannot find "C:\users\Name\desktop\something.png". Make sure that you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

The file exists and does open fine in windows photo viewer.

Same thing with videos
It will open fine in Windows Media Player and VLC.

I have contacted the support team at Microsoft for any solution. The guy on the support line said that it should be a hardware issue, not a software issue.

Any guesses on what caused this issue? (I think the app files may got corrupted during restoration to the previous build) A fast reply would be helpful (I need this thing back up as soon as possible to get work done)

Hello, yutost. Welcome to Windows Ten Forums.

I had problems with the "built in" WinRT Store apps in 10547 as well. Surprisingly my 10565 runs flawlessly. If you had no problems with 10547 before, then obviously the rollback is flawed.

I suggest you either fresh install via ISO or run the following.

DISM command to check the OS store health first. If it needs repair then command that. DISM - Repair Windows 10 Image - Windows 10 Forums

After that run SFC command: SFC Command - Run in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

If that doesn't help run: Store - Re-register in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

After that open the Store and search for each flawed app by searching for each one in the search box there. It will lead you to it's page and show the condition. You may need to reinstall each one.

Hope that helps and good luck.

It does not make any difference, if the profiles are identical on each device does it? When I say identical, both my MS Surface and my Main rig are running Windows 10 Pro on the same profile which shouldn't make any difference because each Product ID and registration key is unique to each machine that the OS is installed on. Windows is activated on both my MS Surface and my Main rig.

I had the same problem on my MS Surface, as it took over a week before the 10.10547 finally showed up in Windows Update. Unless I wait for 10.10558 which I would estimate possibly the end of October or the beginning of November.


Hi there, Mel. No, it won't make any difference with identical accounts for the reasons you gave.

Any suggestions?

Manually update to 10586 by downloading iso from ms, double clicking on it and running setup.exe. Then make sure you rejoin the Insider Program in update menus, and leave pc on for up to 48 hours

Note - do not clean install if you did not install windows 10 upgrading from a valid 7/8 licence, as it will not activate.

I clean installed 10558 from an ISO, it's fully activated, I'm on the fast ring insider setting, I get Windows Defender updates every day - but no build 10565 showing up yet. Is it because I am on 10558 that was a clean install? Do I need to go back to something prior, like 10240 and start over? Or just need to wait for 10565 to drop to my computer? I just really want the ESD file so I can make an ISO :-)

During the 10558 install I skipped entering a product key and it activated based on my entitlement on MS activation servers.

I've not yet installed the lastest build, and since I'm supposing that GA of TH2 should be very very similar to what we're testing right now with 10565, the following question comes to mind:

Has the new build reverted the stupid thoughts of MS about Picture Password logins?

As I stated in my thread here in regard to 10240, it is apparent that MS forgot to add the "Other Users" dropdown list picker in the Picture Password login screen (it is present in text-password and PIN, instead).
That sucks for everyone who has a tablet with multiple accouts and likes everybody be able to access the device with the Picture Password feature.

Has something changed in that regard with 10565? I praise it's happening..

A:Has 10565 solved the problem of Picture Password missing other users?

I only used the picture password for about two days then switched to using a PIN. It is easier for me to logon that way.

Currently on windows xp. We know the dvd works (tried it in a different computer) and the dvd drive in this system works (tried using different operating systems). I can move the mouse around, and no keyboard shortcuts appear to work.

I had the windows 7 beta installed a ways back, so I know the OS works on this system.

Hi Oglshrub and welcome to the forums

Hello there. I have a trouble installing windows7. I think the problem is that my motherboard and a new SSD(intel 320), that I've just bought, have a conflict. I have Asus Striker which is based on nvidia 680i chipset. It's not supported ahci. So, every time it stops at 81%.
Is there any chance to make it work?

I had that very motherboard, and I regret to inform you it's complete garbage.
The replacement micro atx board I got for it for 70 bucks blows it away in benchmarks and runs more stable.
You may want to look into the bios updates via asus, but I don't think they have patched anything since the one that made the 5850 work with it.

My old harddisk became corrupted for God only knows what reason. I pulled it out, made it into an external drive to plug into my laptop, reformatted it, put it back in and it continued to become corrupt every few days. Now, only 1 of the 2 partitions was becoming corrupt so I decided I would put the hard disk from my external drive in my computer and put my old hard disk in the external drive. I plugged it in correctly, Win XP installation begins propperly but when it tried loading a file (dmio.somthing) it said it was corrupt. It did this for a week and then just stopped doing it one day, though I did nothing to anything in the computer. Now, my problem is that after installation copies all the files needed and reboots, after about 5 minutes it freezes, consistently in the same place EVERY TIME....... Can anyone offer a solution?

I had many issues with my pc i built well i didnt when i first got it running but within the next couple of months i did. Im back on my spare pc and i have xp home running but on my other pc i had xp pro on it. It does have service pack 2 and stuff like that its mostly made for gaming but i also work on websites. Anyways The only thing that it does is freeze up during installation it stops where it says Your computer will be more reliable and faster and time it stops on says 34mins. So could someone please help me i would like it if i didnt have to take my pc down to the shop because i dont want to spend that kind of money.


A:Xp freezes during installation


I want to make sure I understand. Your Main PC is down, and the problem (seems to be) that it is "freezing" during WinXP installation.


Anyways The only thing that it does is freeze up during installation it stops where it says Your computer will be more reliable and faster and time it stops on says 34mins.

Yet you say this also:


Im back on my spare pc and i have xp home running but on my other pc i had xp pro on it. It does have service pack 2 and stuff like that ...

I assume that your "other" PC is your Main PC that "had" WinXP Pro.

So from this I gather that you are (for some reason) re-installing WinXP Pro on a machine that used to have WinXP Pro with the SP2 installed.

It is important that my understanding of your situation is accurate, because the first question I would have is WHY you are re-installing WinXP. It may be that the problem you had that caused the need for reinstallation is the reason why the reinstallation is failing.

Also, I wonder that happens when somone tries to do a "Repair" install on a HD with SP2 already installed.

SP2 is still quite new, and it is unlikely that you are installing a version of WinXP that has SP2 applied to it on the disk. So I wonder if you are trying to repair a "newer" version of WinXP with an "older" version.

I can't say for sure, but I suspect that is bad. Myself, I had the same problem and what I had to do was learn how to make a "slipstreamed" version of WinXP. "Slipstreaming" is applying the most recent update to the O/S (in this case applying SP2 to WinXp Pro) and then burning a new CD with the original O/S updated to SP2. From this new (copied) Installation Disk, you can then run a Repair Install on a system that has the SP2 applied.

You might be in the same situation, which is why I need you to to think real clearly about what I am asking and why, and then report to me what your situation is and how accurate my understanding of it is. (I don't need to know about your back-up system, just the one that has a problem.)

Also, I wonder about the possiblity that you might be trying to reinstall a "home" version to a "pro" version, or vice versa. Either way, I need to have a better idea of what's going on with your "Primary" system.

hi, i just bought the gold edition of rise of nations.

anyways is there anyway to fix this problem and install the game some how?
heres my specs

and LG burner drive
when i install the demo of it, it installs perfectly, i also tried the cd on my weaker computer and it installed perfectly but couldnt run it because of its specs.
is there a problem with my computer?

A:Installation freezes

Disable any programs that might be running in the background, like AV or Antispyware. Also, make sure you have the latest drivers for your video and sound. Check your Direct X version to make sure you have the correct version. Try and install it into the default directory and see if that helps..If these steps don't help check at the games web site forum to see if others have had this problem also..

Sometimes, even though the demo may work, after the final product is released, there might be some updates or changes that are put into the final product that'll change how it works or runs.

Good Luck and hope this helps!

I experienced progressively more common "blue screens of death" on my desktop so decided to try reformatting my hard drive. Everything is backed up. After installing the Windows XP SP1 disk, I come to the screen Windows XP Home Edition Setup. Welcome to Setup. I'm given the option to Setup windows XP now, press enter or repair by pressing R. However, the screen is frozen. My keyboard is plugged into a PS2 slot. Do I need a new hard drive? Thanks.

A:Please help! xp freezes during installation

It could be a lot of things. Do you think the machine is frozen or could it be just the mouse and keyboard? Any signs of disk activity?

The "increasing" blue screens probably play into this. You are right that it could be the hard drive. But try a memory test. They are easy to do, and you shouldn't just buy a drive if it won't solve the problem or you won't need it.

What type of errors were you getting on the blue screens? Were they all the same or seemingly random?

MemScope (Floppy and CD images.)
Roadkil's RAM Test
Microsoft Memory Test (floppy or CD ISO image)

If you have enough memory sticks, you can test them by removing one at a time and see if the problem disappears.

If you are running Vista, tap F8 on boot and choose the memory diagnostic, or if you can boot up, go to Start > Search and type:


Choose to run a memory diagnostic on next boot. Or, you can boot from the DVD and run it from there.


Heat is another possibility. Check that vents are dust-free. If you can open the case, check that all fans are moving and that dust is removed.

Well, it does sound a little like PSU, what sort is it? 550,650,750W? and, is the PSU a good brand or a cheaper one? I doubt you bought a cheap one as the rest of your components sound top stuff.
Have you tried to remove other hardware you might have fitted? like, remove the DVD drive and any other ancillary card? just have the HDD, and ram in? Might also be advisable to return the MB to the original settings as in, take out the battery for 5 mins, put it back, then try to install.

I doubt that your ram timings are causing the issue. Is you BIOS UEFI? Try to do what I suggested and see if that helps? it might be a component you have? like a printer, or a DVD drive or??? Also, have you fitted the Video card into another PCIE 16 slot?

Their tech support page suggest's finding all *.TMP and *.CHK files and deleteing them.
I am not just going to take their word about deleteing these files. Can someone advise me if it is ok to delete all those files. I don't want to screw up my computer by doing so. Thanks.

A:Installation freezes screen

The .tmp file extension is a Windows temporary file and I've never run into trouble deleting them.

The only time a .tmp file might be used is for an install which requires a reboot...the installation will access some tmp files to complete the installation but once complete, any leftover tmp files are not needed. A lot of software doesn't clean up after itself, leaving behind useless tmp files.

The .chk file extension are file fragments, usually from corrupted files, saved by Windows' scandisk and defragmenter. Why they are saved is anybody's guess since retrieving useful data from them is difficult if not impossible. They, too, can be deleted.

I am trying to install Windows XP Pro slipstreamed w/ SP2 on a friends computer. I get as far as the screen with the progress bar for formatting and it never starts. I placed the harddrive on my computer to see if there was a hardware issue with his box but the same thing happens. I know the disk works because it was the disk that originally installed XP on his machine. It is a reinstall trying to correct some performance issues, it was moving ultra slow with very low cpu usage. I thought it was due to a nasty virus that I could not remove due to the slowness so I figured that a fresh format would tighten things up. I have already deleted the partition so there's no going back now. Could the hard drive be damaged? Any help would be appreciated, hopefully before I have to give my friend the bad news :)

After a reboot, my laptop screen came on, and I was good to go.

Repair Installation on a Windows XP Freezes


I'm trying to attempt a repair installation on a Windows XP Pro SP2. When setup starts, it goes smoothly until about 34 minutes, in which it is installing devices. The bar goes about 2/3 of the way, then it completely stops. The green squares in the bottom right corner are still moving. No error message. I've interrupted this installation first time hoping it will not take effect and after that I was ejecting disk 4 times, restarted 5 times in safe mode but it always coming back to the same point of Installing network and not moving forward. It's CRAZY.

SUMMARY Windows x installation before installation completing freezes Windows 7 freezes on splash loading screen during the first restart after the Windows 7 freezes before completing installation last step of installation Let me start by saying this all started days ago when Windows Ultimate build x randomly started refusing to let my router assign my machine an IP address It was a hard-line connection and had been working fine for weeks No hardware changes no software changes no network changes and poof--no connectivity Other machines and OS's connected to it fine and my machine connected to OTHER networks fine Two days of router hard resets and windows registry hacks yielded absolutely no progress so I arrived at a reinstallation of Windows I decided that since I was going to lose all data anyhow I would take that opportunity to update the firmware on my SSD--which if you've never heard of this process-- it is no small feat After consulting with IT professionals at work whoring out different PC's obtaining a mild concussion and an act of congress I finally got a formatted blank SSD with updated firmware ready to re-install windows to I created a x installation disc using Microsoft's ISO and booted from it Installation went smoothly all the way up to the very last step when the screen resolution changes from default low-res to OS-worthy normal resolution and then setup says it needs to restart one last time It appears as though this time when it restarts it actually boots from the hard drive rather than the installation program I got the animated windows icon with the black back drop and then before the OS pops up it just hangs and freezes No keyboard input is responsive ctl alt delete doesn't work once it freezes and a quot repair installation quot just yields a quot Windows cannot repair this installation quot message I tried everything I can think of and there is no way to get past it Botting it in safe mode just says quot Windows cannot boot in safe mode because setup needs to complete first quot For sanity's sake I wiped the disc again and installed XP x and it installed lickedy-split just fine I don't understand though because I was running build no problems beforehand and it wasn't hard to install at all My head eh splode

Problem is that it stays at 39 minutes and the cd drive keeps making noise and the light is on..but it just stays there. I have rebooted it twice and just gets to that point and stops. Why does it keep freezing at this point?

Hey guys.

Having an annoying problem where when I try and install a software package for a device the system hard locks during the driver installation phase. No BSOD, simply freezes at the same point during the installation. Doesn't do it for every device I've installed its only done it for my Avermedia C985 capture card and now for a D-Link USB WIFI stick.

I had to manually install the drivers for the capture card through the device manager. The USB stick is harder because I cant get the software separately to the driver so can't complete the installation.

I've tried disabling driver verification but that didn't help.


A:System freezes during driver installation

When you try and install them again, wait for the system to crash. Once it's crashed restart as normal then go to Start > 'View Event Log' > Open Custom Views > Administrative Events then have a look for the event that caused the system to crash and post it back here.

A:Xp pro freezes during recovery setup installation

If you can browse to the floppy or CD, you can simply put the file on one of those.

If by recovery, you mean that you are using the recovery partition of a factory PC, then all of the files/drivers needed should already be present and I'd question if that partition isn't also corrupted. Either way, that sounds like a NIC driver, you may be able to cancel and continue, then go back later and install those drivers.

Have you ensured the drivers are compatible for your version of Windows and the service pack that is being used? Micrsoft is working on a second service pack for Windows XP users and I am not certain if that has been released yet but it would be something I would look into. I feel that it may be a modem incompatibility, rather than your computer just failing because it wants to. The very fact the D-Link DFM-562IS modem works with your current machine proves that your computer is capable of installing and handling modems.

I looked around the forum and saw similar posts but I could not decide if it is the same problem.
So, I tried to "reinstall-repair" my PC from window XP service pack 2 CD. It freezes at "37 minutes left." I restarted it about 2 times (may be I shouldn't have! :( ) after waiting for about 40 mins the first 2 times. This is the third time and I am thinking to wait longer.
There were some suggestions that I should delete .int file but when I go to shift +F10, I could not find .int file.
Should I reformat it or what other thing could I do?

I have a unit in my living room for all my room mates to use. The HD failed & I had another one lying around so I used the 98 boot floppy to format & install 98SE on it. That installation went fine. Then I Started the XP Pro upgrade & it went fine all the way through until it did the restart to install. The 'Installing Windows' screen came up and that is where it freezes. Any ideas? I shut it off and tried a full install rather than the upgrade and it freezes up at the blue 'Starting Windows' screen. This is the same XP disc I used on it the first time & the same 98 disc also and it ran fine until the HD failed.

So I tried re installing Vista because my Dell Inspiron was really slow Everything took forever to open so I thought I might have a virus I decided to just reinstall Vista I inserted the Dell installation dvd and attempted to format the hard drive The laptop froze on me and so I had to restart it I attempted to boot from the dvd dell installation error dvd freezes/bootmgr again but after the file loading screen the screen goes black and it sounds like the computer goes into sleep mode I tried this several times and even switched the dvd with another one in case it was the dvd Same thing So I took out the dvd and attempted to boot it normally and got an error that told me it couldn't find bootmgr and I should press ctrl alt delete to restart I'm assuming that has something to do with restarting in the middle of formatting Is there anything I can do to make the computer start dell installation dvd freezes/bootmgr error the install disk Any tips

I have a new SSD.
I put it in removing all other hard drives. removed all usb except keyboard and mouse both using usb.

Inserts windows 7 cd, I go to install and it just hangs at the completing installation never finishing.

Anyone ever get past that with an SSD? I been at this for 9 hours now and it wont install the OS.

I'm using an SSD. How are you installing, with MBR formatted drive or UEFI and GPT formatted drive?

I had a problem with a UEFI/GPT installation on one PC, that it would hang and that problem turned out to be the motherboard. It worked fine with MBR formatted drive.

I recently built a computer and completed it, and when I go to install 7, I can get all the way to where you select the drive or partition you want to install to, and it frezes up completely, and the little mouse cursor thing stops swirling around, and the system locks up. Any advice?

and i have not ever installed anything on the machine before, so this is a "clean" install.
