  • 01/03/19--12:46: Re: Disc running at 100%
  • I asked you specifically HOW you attempted to clean the disk -- would appreciate a reply, not a screenshot.

    That shows 100% utiilization -- meaning something is tying up the drive nearly constantly, and my suspicion is Windows Update.

    Any new PC running Win10 is using an OS that could have been installed weeks or months ago, so when you first use it, it is going to connect to the Microsoft servers and look for Windows Updates. This sucks up major processor resources and will effectively slow you PC to a crawl. It will continue doing this until it has found all the updates your PC needs, downloaded them all, and installed them all. Apart from partially disabling Updates, there is nothing you can do about this.

    And ... if you RESET your PC, you make the matters worse because you start this process all over again.

    To check for Windows Update running, do the following:
    1) Enter Services in the search area
    2) Select Services when it appears
    3) Scroll down the list until you find Windows Update
    4) If it is running, then double-click it and under Service status: select Stop
    5) After if stops, see if your performance returns to more normal speeds.

    If it does, then it was Windows Update using up the bulk of the processing power.

    Good Luck

    Trying to update older BIOS on this system prior to removing a dead HDD and going through the downloads I am not finding the appropriate BIN file for the system board ID (2163) on my machine that I get from the UEFI system information tab.

     

    The current machine BIOS is F.67 and I am trying to move to either 68,69,70 or 71(preferable), which are all available updates for this machine.  When I insert the BIOS Update recovery USB drive, and use it there is no 02163.bin file available in the BIOS image, only other numbers.  

     

    I am using the HP advice from https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c00042629  (update when Windows does not start) and all works except finding the proper bin within the recoverable image to match my system board ID.

     

    Do any of you happen to know about this?

    Thanks ahead of time.

    You'll want to Google that error code and try the solutions suggested and see which works for you.

    @IT_WinSec - how do I start to run Command Prompt (CMD) as an administrator? Not sure how to do this.

     

    Thanks.

    What's the point of updating the BIOS?

     

    See if you can update BIOS using a USB flash drive with FreeDOS image.

    If your previous OS was Windows 10, what's the point of going back to previous OS?

  • Did you try Googling Oxc0000225  ?

    Thanks I should have known it wasn't right when it asked for payment - these links for WinTonic and DriverTonic popped up after I clicked the link for Speccy that you sent. They pop up in front and since I didn't know what I was opening I downloaded that by accident. Have now removed them all, and also Avast, thanks for the advice.

     

    When you send the links to people, perhaps warn them that these malware pop up and to check what they are downloading - just so this doesnt happen to anyone else.

    Hi,

    It may be easier to just do a clean install, however if you are keen to dig deeper then try https://windowsreport.com/windows-10-upgrade-error-0xc1900201/#.XC59jYzVK70

    Good luck

    No particular point, only since I was tearing into machine, thought I would update BIOS prior to dismantling.

     

    I generally don't do any BIOS change since they can add trouble....

     

    I am not familiar with FreeDos other than a brief internet search.  What does that buy me?

    Thanks, just wondering if I were to upgrade to SSD  - will that remove the 2TB storage that I have? That was the reason I chose this laptop and not a SDD laptop as I know they have much less memory.

    Are there any external hard drives you recommend? One that doesn't easily break.

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear you still have issues.. May I recommend the following.

    1) Go to the magnifying glass down the bottom left and type in 'device manager'

    Do the keyboard and mouse have an exclamation mark over them? if so try either updating the driver OR removing the devices and rescanning for hardware changes by right clicking on any item and selecting that option from the menu.

    IF the problem is not resolved.

    2) Enter BIOS and tell it to Load Defaults and save and exit

     

    IF the problem is not resolved.

    3) Did you UPGRADE your BIOS?, if so, maybe beneficial to return to your old BIOS version.

     

    Good luck

    The Vega Drivers on Intel´s Site was all "Beta" so i think that is not even the problem. But i i take a look at the Picture of your Details i got aware that the "VGA BIOS UEFI Support" is not marked.

     

    For the Intel HD 630 it is marked. Maybe this is why the Update to 1809 gets an Error.

     "Update failed in thesafe_os phase with an error during boot"

    Just to be sure I do this correctly, how do I backup my computer in the state it's in?

    Hi,

    I recommend you try the following:

     

    Boot from your installation DVD/USB

    Select->Repair your computer

    Select->Advanced Options

    Select->Troubleshoot

    Select->Command Prompt

    Type in the following commands in the exact order

     

    bootrec /fixmbr

    bootrec /fixboot

    bootrec /scanos

    bootrec /rebuiltbcd

    exit

     

    After reboot hopefully the problem will be resolved.

     

    Good luck

    My laptop has been like this for a few days now and I have been going around YouTube on trying to solve this problem. All the solutions did not work for me so I came here to find help from someone. In Advanced Options, there are all these choices like resetting your PC, Command Prompt, Startup Repair, and more. I tried them all but it didn’t work. I also tried powering my laptop on and off a consecutive number of times but it just went back to the auto repair loop. Please help!

    Hi,

    Did you try command prompt ->

    bootrec /fixmbr

    bootrec /fixboot

    bootrec /scanos

    bootrec /rebuildbcd

    exit

     

    If this failed I recommend you try to do a complete reinstall by erasing the harddrive.

    If this fails to help please explain why you were reinstalling in the first place as this could help diagnose the issue

     

    Good luck!
