Windows 10 update got me

I have seen posts on here about Windows 10 updates causing problems with peoples devices...I always wondered what the fuss was all about...I found out the hard way I have a fairly new DELL running Windows 10 and an HP all in one printer scanner......well the printer / scanner worked pretty well and now it is just a plastic pile of crap...I was able to get hold of HP and they were aware of the problem...they started getting calls on Saturday, which, coincidentally is exactly when my problems started....Now I feel your pain and will be more aware of the posts on here about Windows 10...any one else get hit in the last few days?

Windows 10 likes to think it has the best drivers for peripherals, normally you need to go back to manufacturers website and download their driver and apply it.

Try holding the power button down for at least 10 seconds and see if it comes to life.

Re: Windows 10 update got me

I think a reset takes you back to when it was brand new, before all the updates, which will try to reload themselves all over again.

Right: and for every once in awhile when windows 10 updates automatically the sneaky way coming in the back door you will have to wrestle with your printer driver again if your computer is the 64 bit type.

Re: Windows 10 update got me

I was lucky...I was able to talk to someone at HP that "remotely took over" my computer and got it straightened out....it was a real pain in the neck until I got this guy on the line ...they were very good about it, considering the printer is about 5 years old, they gave me the support without charging me anything

Re: Windows 10 update got me

I have not tried the HP printer as yet. It was causing problem all ready the printer could not find the network but the lap top was able to find the printer. That maybe more fun to look forward to. So far everything has been working ok and much faster than before.

Re: Windows 10 update got me

I use the printer from a couple of different devices....it was just 1 PC that was having the problem after the update....previously it was an intermittent problem with that same computer...and then no mater what I dis after the update I could not get it to work right...I uninstalled and reinstalled the software and drivers at least 30 times ( I could do it in my sleep now)...if you need the customer service# send me a PM and I will give it to you....I found that fooling with it myself became just a waste of time

It involves this kind of Windows 10 update information, which may help you in some way.
