Common Issues After Installing Windows 10 And Solutions by ITbomb(m): 2:57am On Jul 27, 2016
After going through the thread on the Windows free upgrade deadline, I saw many complaints from people who installed the Windows and the others who were still skeptical.

To be honest, Windows 10 is the best Windows experience once everything has been set up and running

Let’s get straight to the issues.

First of all, you need to know basic information about your system.
Press Win+R and type in msinfo32 to launch the System information console and look for these items
a. Manufacturer
b. Model Number
c. Architecture ( 64 bit or 32 bit/86x) very important
d. RAM

These are the most important, other information are there

1. Download size and options

Yes, the download size is about 3.5 GB to get Windows 10 on your PC. Other additional installations/driver updates might take another 1 GB

Note: if you are upgrading from the Microsoft tool, make sure you have enough data (>4 GB) and a strong network otherwise any network interruption, even at 90%, you start afresh

Solution: Download a good Windows 10 ISO file with any Download Manager (which you can pause and resume at will), click here for the link or buy a DVD from a computer shop.

2. Display issues after installation

80% of the time, this is a common issue, icons becoming larger and funny looking

Solution:
Go to Device Manager (Shortcut: Win+R, then type devmgmt.msc in the RUN box and press enter or OK). Look for Display Adapter (probably with a yellow alert sign), right click on it and select “Update Driver”.
Then choose “Allow Windows to search for drivers automatically”. Make sure you are connected to the internet and wait for it to do its work.


3. WiFi not working

Same as above, still on the Device Manager, look for “Network Controller” (especially if it has a yellow alert icon) and update the drivers.

For some brands of PC, Windows might not be able to connect to the respective manufacturer’s site so you have to do it manually.
For HP users, just go to http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/ and search for your system model

4. Games not playing

Most games were built for backward compatibility; however, most Windows 10 only came with DirectX 12c graphic engines.

Solution:

Download DirectX 9 (standalone version) from Microsoft or any other reliable site and install. (You may google “directx 9 offline installer” or “directx_Jun2010_redist.exe”), your GTA, PES etc games will play smoothly.


5. Printer not recognized

Get your printer driver from the “carry-come” boxed CD and run the installation again.

6. AutoCAD or some other programs cannot install

Solution:


Download .Net (dot NET) 2.5 – 3.5 Framework and install on your system.

To check which version of .NET Framework is in your PC (probably only 4.5), enter from the RUN box again (Win+R) and type regedit (MAKE SURE you do not change anything here, just look and close)

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > .NETFramwork
A good system should have versions 2, 3 and 4 installed and listed


7. Consuming too much data

Unlike Windows 8, you can control your data consumption easily in Windows 10 (especially WiFi connections).

Just connect the WiFi first, then go to PC Settings > Network > WiFi, then select Advance Options, under your connected WiFi name, you will see “Set as metered connection”, just slide it “ON” and all Windows Updates and Map downloads will be stopped “forever” as long as you don’t change the name of the WiFi hotspot connection.

Why installing Windows 10 when 2019 is closed by when Microsoft will release another stable version.

When MS release Vista many people think it will be stronger and better than Longhorn and XP, but its a woe until 3 years later Win7 fix earlier mistakes. In my Opinion Microsoft is yet to get it straight am waiting for he Next Windows higher than 10.

The only problem I got after the upgrade is that my laptop doesn't shut down properly unless I restart it first and then shut it down. I've tried to find a solution but to no avail.

I downloaded the free upgrade in all my siblings systems hitch free and they are all running smoothly. The exciting news is that in my younger sis Hp probook 4520 she had issues with the Wireless Lan and Bluetooth drivers after formatting the system and fresh-installing Windows 8.1. This made her to be using USB wireless adapter. We had made every effort to find suitable drivers both from HP support and broadcom sites but they keep conflicting and the device never worked hence the USB dongle. After the win 10 upgrade, the system reset the whole driver files and the on board wireless Lan and the Bluetooth are working perfectly without conflicts. I think it's the best windows so far
