Suggested April 2024 Windows 10 – Problems And Issues Being Reported

As with most operating systems, users who installed Windows 10 have been facing some problems too. Here are some of the issues that are being faced by users who installed an Upgrade. Wherever possible, we will add known solutions to those issues.

Windows 10 problems & issues being reported

Action Center Panel Separated from Task Bar

Refreshing the desktop or restarting Explorer did not help. It was only after a computer restart did the situation come back to normal.

Possibly it was a one-time occurrence … maybe some bug!

Audio Driver from Intel Consuming More battery & high CPU usage

Some users are reporting that PCs with 6th Generation (codenamed Skylake) or newer processors confirm that Intel Graphics Driver version less than are experiencing huge battery drain and high CPU usage. The fact is that Windows 10 initially blocked the update because of incompatibility, but where forced update by those users.

So if you did that make sure to update to higher to resolve this issue.  The exact error message goes like:

“What needs your attention: Intel Display Audio Device(intcdaud.sys) KB 4465877

A driver is installed that causes stability problems causing stability problems in Windows. The driver will be disabled. Check with your software/driver provider for an updated version that runs on this version of Windows.

Please check this post if the Intel Display Audio device drivers blocking Windows Feature Update.

Window Update is re-initializing after downloading v1809 Update

A few users have reported that while the computer is able to download 1809 update, but it after download it again initializes. If this is the case, then your best bet is to manually install 1809 by downloading the ISO file or using the Media Creation Tool.

No Prompt to Install after downloading the update

There is an option to install the feature update when its download. It seems the install button has gone missing for some, and even from the Start menu where you get options like Update & Restart or Update and Shutdown

Computer Freezes on Reboot while installing 1809

Some of the users are not able to Update to Windows 10 v1809, and the computer freezes after the first reboot.

Windows Update Rolls back to 1803 while halfway through 1809 Update

Because of incompatible drivers or software block, it is possible that the Windows Upgrade process might start rollback if it encounters an error like this:

Windows could not configure one or more of the system components. To install Windows, restart the computer and then restart the chúng tôi computer then shows Undoing changes made to your computer, according to users.

Missing files in User folders

Reddit users are reporting that after updating to Windows 10 version 1809, a lot of files from Document and Music folders have gone missing. While there is nothing you can do to resolve this issue, but there is a small chance you may be able to recover the files. This post will help you recover the missing User folders & files.

When Windows 10 installs a new feature update, it backs up all the fils which is kept in chúng tôi folder in C drive. This comes in handy when you want to rollback to the previous version of Windows.

Go to C:Windows.oldUsersXXXX (XXXX is the username).

This should have all the User folders in place for that user.

Copy the files which you need to your preferred location.

Brightness reduced to 50% after restart

On some laptops, the brightness drops somewhere between 25 to 50% when its restarted.  Users have to manually change the brightness. If Brightness is not working properly, it could be either display driver issue or power plan issue as its happening mostly on laptops.

Update Performed Reset

These are probably the most common issues that happen after every Windows 10 Upgrade. Users are reporting in Microsoft forums that:

Applications like Event Viewer, Task Scheduled and System restore has been reset. All previously available tasks, restore point, etc. are not available anymore.

Preferences changed in Settings has been reset as well.

Tiles are missing in the Start Screen.

Windows user account has been reset from Administrator to Standard. You may have to create a new Admin Account.

If you have lost all calendar entries, sign in with your Microsoft account to get back all the details.

System says it is running version 1803 with 1809 installed

One of the interesting reports that showed up is having 1809 installed on the PC, but the system shows how seems to be stuck in 1803.  This usually happens when you revert to a restore point which was of an earlier version. Post this when you try to install the latest feature update, it won’t work. The only solution out here is to use the Media Creation tool to update to v1809.

Feature Update still available after Updating to v1809

If you have updated your Windows 10 to v1809 through media creation tool or update assistant, and if Windows Update still shows that its available for your system, you might want to restart your Windows 10 PC several times until it figures out the current version. You need to reset the catroot2 folder to resolves this issue.

Not able to log-in to Windows after updating to v1809

A few are reporting that they were unable to login to Windows after updating to v1809.

Internet Connectivity Issues

Some users are reporting that they are not able to login to their Microsoft Account, and if they managed to get it, they are not able to use Edge and Store, Xbox Live, Skype, Your Phone and more with the same account. Most of them are receiving error –Something went wrong.

Also, if you have received error code 0x80072EFD, then this, and issue above its because of network issue. You can tun the built-in Windows Troubleshooters like Network Adapter Troubleshooter and Internet Connection Troubleshooter and see if it helps.

Microsoft has also made it mandatory to enable IPv6 in 1809. So you may want to enable that right away to resolve this issue. This post will help you if Edge & Apps are not connecting.

Backup and Recovery now shows error 0x80070013

This is another feature that is broken in Windows 10 v1809 for some users. After Windows 10 version 1809 update the backup and recovery now shows error 0x80070013 and fails. You should know that the backup and restore feature has been deprecated from this version.

Cannot change the Default Apps

After the update, Windows 10 seems to have blocked the ability to change the default apps which is not recognized by windows by default. Even if someone tries to change the default app by going to new settings, it doesn’t work.

No Sound from speakers along with 100% CPU usage

You will probably need to update your sound drivers to fix this No Sound issue. Check with the OEM to find out the new version, download and install it. It is also possible that your volume control might be muted.

October 2023 update failed and now cannot be found Windows Update 1809

This is an interesting situation where the download fails, and then when users check for an update, it fails to find any new update. The problem is that it has got stuck at the last moment, and is confused. You may have to run the Windows 10 Update Troubleshooter or clear the Software Distribution folder to fix this.

Windows Hello Fails to Work

I am guessing this is a mostly a driver issue. You need to check with Windows Update for the latest driver if you are using Surface devices, but if you are using third-party Windows Hello camera, please check with OEM for the latest driver.

Dark Theme is not enabled for File Explorer

After enabling Dark Mode from personalization settings, some users have reported that File Explorer still retains the white mode. For some, they are visualizing dark text in black theme instead of white text. See this mode if Dark Mode is not working properly for Explorer.

Bluetooth Battery level indicator is missing

Windows 10 v1809 now displays a battery level of Bluetooth connected devices.  After the update, it seems to be working for some devices while on others it doesn’t show up. To resolve this, you might want to unpair the device and repair to see if the indicators show up.

Unable to detect External Monitor

Display settings not allowing multiple displays

It seems the recent update has also disabled some of the settings for multiple displays. This user reported that settings in multiple displays are not functioning correctly. Most boxes are blank, and with not allow to extend the display to all monitors.

Black screen on old ATI video card after upgrade to 1809

However after upgrading to Windows 10 1809 I’ve noticed that my ATI x1400 that’s built into this laptop will show a black screen after suspending the laptop and waking it back up. You can eventually get some screen back by bashing [win] + [p] and eventually forcing detection.

Make sure to download the recent drivers for your graphics card which is compatible with the Windows 10 1809 update.

Windows 10 Mobile Preview Build 14327 Issues: Update Fails, Charging Problems, And More

Windows 10 Mobile Preview build 14327 issues: update fails, charging problems, and more




Microsoft released the new build 14327 for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview users on the Fast Ring. The new build introduced a couple of refreshing features but as you can guess, it also gave headaches to some who installed it due to a sizable number of errors.

Microsoft released the official list of issues and bugs that arrived with this release and as usual, the number of reported errors is much bigger. So, we’re going to analyze the reports, and see if we can do something to solve at least some of build 14327’s reported problems.

Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14327 reported issues

While problems with installing new updates and builds are more common to the PC version of Windows 10, the past few builds have seen Mobile users starting to face this issue, as well. In this case, one user reported on Microsoft Community forums that he’s unable to install the build.

Other users who faced this problem suggested a Hard Reset as a solution. So, if you’re facing problems with installing build 14327, you should try with performing a Hard Reset as well.

Another reported problem is the error with the Lumia front-facing camera. Namely, one user complained on the forums that every time he tries to open the camera app and turns on the front-facing camera, the error code 0xA00F424A(0xC00D3704) shows up.

“For the last two insider builds (14320 and 14327) my Lumia 950’s front facing camera will not load (see error).  This has prevented windows hello also working since it can’t access the camera.  I have tried third party apps, soft resets, and a hard reset to no avail.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.”

Unfortunately, we don’t have a proper solution for this issue. If your front-facing camera also doesn’t work, the best possible solution is probably to roll back.

Battery issues continue our report. A user of Microsoft’s Community forums said that since he installed the latest build, it takes his phone six hours to fully charge. “I like what you had done with the build… My only problem is.. When I last update this to recent Redstone build 14327 it takes more than 6 hours to completely charge my phone.. By the way I’m using L830.” This issue remains a mystery as well, since no one from the forums had a proper workaround.

It looks like the new build also caused some of Windows 10 Mobile’s default apps to break, as users reported a problem with Outlook. After installing build 14327, Outlook failed  to receive new emails and sync contacts on some Windows 10 Mobile devices. As you can guess, Microsoft Engineers didn’t have a proper solution. “I have a 950 XL with new build 14327 just applied. I can’t seem to generate new emails with Outlook. When I press the + sign to generate a new email, the ellipses above just scroll and scroll. It’s kind of a problem!”

As you can see, this build brings a similar number of issues compared to the previous release. But if we compare Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds with Windows 10 Preview for PC builds, Mobile releases are far less troublesome compared to PC versions. And while it’s a good thing for Windows 10 Mobile, Microsoft still needs work a lot on the stability of PC builds.

Astroneer Reported Issues: Game Crashes, Fps Drops, Steering Is Weird, And More

Astroneer reported issues: Game crashes, FPS drops, steering is weird, and more




Space exploration fans will definitely love Astroneer, a recently released title currently available as a game preview. Astroneer doesn’t have a clear goal or a storyline. Rather, the the players’ main tasks are colonizing planets, mining their resources and using them to build new vehicles and facilities.

Since Astroneer is still work in progress, naturally the game is affected by many technical issues. System Era Softworks regularly releases hotfixes to address the most frequent Astroneer bugs. However, it appears that some Astroneer issues cling to the game like leeches.

Frequent Astroneer bugs Astroneer FPS rate issues

As I play for the first 3 minutes, It’s a pretty solid 60 fps. Then it starts getting really bad. With FPS drops non-stop, going from 60 to the 30’s and 40’s. Random numbers really. After about 7 minutes the overall FPS dropped to below 50, having an average of 39-40 FPS, but still having constant FPS drops.

Astroneer freezes

Players also report that they can’t play Astroneer for more than 10 or 20 minutes because the game suddenly freezes. None of the game updates released so far could fix this issue.

i did, and it still crashes with the new beta, it dont actually crash it blocks and i cant do anything also i have to close the app in the windows panel.

Steam VR opens when players launch Astroneer

Astroneer does not support VR, yet Steam VR opens everytime players launch the game. Turning off SteamVR from Properties doesn’t fix this issue, and sound is still pushed regardless of Windows settings.

Ok so the patch notes said you fixed VR launching along side Astrow/e and it didnt…at all…Steam VR still launches when you launch the game […]

Sound issues

Players also report that Astroneer is affected by an annoying sound bug that causes FPS drops and huge lag. The only solution to fix this problem is to mute the game, but this limits the gaming experience. Hopefully, the upcoming Astroneer updates will fix this issue.

[…] also if you took half a moment to read the forum you would see a serious and bizare issue with the sound causing frame drops and severe lag. Using the -NOSOUND works and the game is stable but I would rather play with sound.

Steering issues

Steering in Astroneer is weird. A simple task like driving can become a nerve-wracking experience when controls get mixed up. Some players even report that Astroneer’s steering style gives them motion sickness.

i hate that style of driving in games. The controls should behave like they would in a car. your steering does not switch just because you are looking behind. Also the driving feels like your in a hover vehicle, not in a 4 wheel. it slide turns on the spot. the slippery driving and wierd steering is a big turn off for me.

Astroneer features

Players also ask Astroneer’s developers to add a series of useful features, such as:

Autosave – Gamers complain they often lose the game progress when Astroneer crashes.

“It’s ridiculous how I keep losing hours of progress due to these crashes. I just got to base after bringing 3 research things there and it crashed.”

Fullscreen support – The fullscreen feature currently available is only borderless windowed. True fullscreen support will offer a better Astroneer gaming experience.

Linux support – System Era Softworks confirms that Linux support is on the radar, but the priorities now are the Windows and Mac versions.

If you’ve encountered other Astroneer bugs that we didn’t mention in this article, head to System Era’s support forum and report them there.

Windows 10 Build 14332 Causes Installation Fails, Edge Problems, And More

Windows 10 Build 14332 causes installation fails, Edge problems, and more




Microsoft released build 14332 for both Windows 10 PC and Mobile a few days ago. The main purpose of the build is to collect some additional user feedback through the new Bug Bash, but there’s much more to talk about in the new build than these Bash quests.

Microsoft released its common list of reported problems, but apparently the company didn’t list enough.Users reported a high number of issues in the last few days, and in this article, we’re going to address these issues, and see if we can solve any of them.

Since this build is available on both Windows 10 Windows 10 Mobile, we’re going to talk about problems on both platforms in this report.

Windows 10 Preview build 14332 reported issues Windows 10 Preview build 14332 problems on PC

It became a tradition here at Windows Report to start our problem reporting articles with with a report about failed build installation. Some users complained on Microsoft’s Community forums that they’re unable to download and install the latest Windows 10 Preview build.

“There were problems installing some updates, but we’ll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information, this may help: Windows 10 Insider Preview 14332 – Error 0x800703e4”

Unfortunately, Microsoft’s engineers didn’t have a proper solution for this problem. So, if you’re facing this issue too, we recommend you running a WUReset script. Let us know if the script helped to get the new build installed.

Microsoft introduced Photo reminders with the previous build, but apparently, the new feature is not working for all Insiders. Some users reached community forums, and said that they’re unable to set up a reminder with Cortana in build 14332. Being unable to set up reminders in Cortana in not the only problem, as users also reported other crashes and bugs. However, a lot of users answered, saying that Cortana works fine for them, so we assume this issue is not widespread.

Another user reported that he’s unable to use Groove Music in the latest build. “I can load Groove app, and log into the Groove service. Error 0x8004c029.”

The solution for this problem is simple resetting of Groove Music from Windows 10 settings. We already talked about resetting apps in Windows 10, so if you want to find out more, go check this article.

Expert tip:

There are even some problems from the previous build that are still present in this release. Reportedly, Microsoft Edge still crashes for some Insiders, as said on Microsoft’s forums.

For this problem we also recommend resetting Microsoft Edge, the same method as for Groove music, we mentioned above.

Microsoft slightly redesigned the taskbar by removing the File Explorer icon, but it looks like users have some additional problems with the ‘new’ taskbar. Namely, one user reported that Multiple desktops icon is missing from his taskbar. But just like many times before, no one had a proper solution, so we hope Microsoft will fix it in the next release.

That’s all for Windows 10 Preview build 14332 reported issues we found so far. But the build was released for Windows 10 Mobile, as well, and it also caused some problems to users who installed it.

Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build 14332 reported issues

Even though users reported a few problems in Windows 10 Mobile, the number of issues is still very low, which is good. This means that Microsoft finally started to provide more stable builds for Windows 10 Mobile, and we hope the future builds won’t cause a lot of problems to Insiders.

When it comes to issues, the new build also failed to install on Mobile, as some users reported. “I have been trying to update to the newest build but it won’t finish the update. I have tried the update five times now. Please help, I can’t figure out why this is happening.”

Microsoft recognized the problem, and dedicated a thread on the forums to this issue. So, if you’re facing this problem as well, check out this post on the Community forums.

That’s it for our problem report article for build 14322. In case you encountered some problems we didn’t include in this article, make sure to let us know.
