windows 10 problems on linx 8

Postby liamd » August 5th, 2015, 1:18 pm

okay well i turned my tablet on for the first time in weeks and saw that i was able to update to windows 10. i though great why not

so it started to do its own thing, i thought it had finished a short while later (maybe an hour) i turned it on to find it wouldnt boot up. can only assume it had gone flat during its install even though it was plugged into its charger, maybe i didnt turn it on. i have managed to get it too boot but there are problems

the rotation doesnt work
the screen touch doesnt work
no sound

how can i fix this or how can i reinstall windows 10 via a usb stick to try sort the problems

there is no windows 8.1 backup either so cant roll back to that

help please :oops:

Go to the Windows 10 Command Centre section of this forum at page.php?p=win10centrev2 and follow the instructions under the drivers section. All the drivers are there if you need them.

Most of them include a setup.exe, just run that and away you go!

New user here.Just registered because I cant fix an issue after a win 10 upgrade.
Linx is working great but it wont restart.It just sits there and eventually gives an error that 0xc0000269 and something about failing to initialise.

Now the tablet will shutdown and it will power back on and windows 10 will run...its only when I actually go shutdown>>restart.

Ive a feeling its a driver issue.

BTW it was a new install.Not an upgrade..Remove everything during the install.

Reinstalled the drivers from here to get the touchscreen etc working

Thanks in advance.

Could be a problem with hibernation file?

Try going to a command box with admin access (right click on start button as Windows 8.1)

type

powercfg -h off

and shutdown. Then start machine and try a restart again.

If that does not work, reset hibernation file as before
but type

powercfg -h on

and try again.

Still no luck.Did everything you said Danskeman.

The tablet still wont do a restart.It will turn off but wont reboot.I get the little red led in the corner as if its about to restart but then I get nothing.
As I said it runs perfectly fine but even if an update needs a restart it just shuts down but wont start back up until I hold the power buttin.

Its a strange one,
