The windows 10 creators fall update is here, like all windows updates it’s forced upon you whether you want it or not. For the most part these are fairly harmless changes in the background that you’d never know about however this one is causing particularly large problems for many, ranging from software becoming unusable to supposedly bricking the pc’s entirely leaving a completely black screen.

Having experienced a similar problem myself with the previous time this update attempted to assert itself I tried everything from changing the resolution to no avail before I finally found a way to fix my pc and get rid of this problematic update.

What happened to my pc?

How my problem manifested on my pc was that it begins with a black screen, however if you jiggle your mouse around enough you can find a way to get it onto your screen, after a lengthy time (around 15 minutes) the background will actually load in, and then it will take several more minutes for the icons to appear along with a windows fall update window, however the resolution won’t be changeable and you’ll be stuck to a really sketchy blurry out of resolution screen that shows only about 1/5th of your native desktop size with the rest being off your screen (and this is on a fairly large sony tv which should be more than big enough to contain the entire pc, and does with much better resolution on the previous version and displays perfectly with the 8gb graphics card it uses.) However in this resolution you would need a wall eating 80″ tv to show everything at this scale and it would still undoubtedly be blurry and terrible to use.

How To Solve This Problem?

So how to fix this problem? What you have to do is fish about on the bottom of the screen for the windows logo, which thankfully they added as without this you’d be stranded in broken pc hell destroying your entire pc. Once you’ve clicked this you have to hope enough displays for you to be able to find the settings button, I believe if you type S on your keyboard it will take you there and be the first clickable in the list unless you’ve added more software that overrides this (finding this blind would be very difficult)

You may have to express some patience as this slower version of windows seems to take a very long time to open this, once you have it open you need to scroll down to “update and security”, your middle mouse button won’t natively scroll like it will in any other window so you’ll have to find the hidden scroll bar here.

Once you’re into the next window you can use your middle mouse again and click on the term “view installed update history” at the top under the windows update status, from here select the second option “recovery options” from here you should have the option “go back to the previous version of windows 10″ click on this button, it’s the second in the list and you’ll be able to uninstall this broken and terrible garbage fire version of windows that destroys your pc and enjoy the previous working version.

After you have done this it’s a good idea to go back into the settings and pause updates for as long as possible to delay this garbage update coming back and re-enforcing it’s horrid nature on your desktop device.

I hope windows realise they’re destroying themselves by pushing this update and not allowing you to prevent it’s destructive nature from reasserting itself over and over again, because it needs to end and allow us to simply use our pc’s without this trash.

You may have noticed that there has been a hiatus on posting content here on the website and it’s been a systematic run of problems which have prevented me from being on top of things, as you are aware if you have been keeping up with the content here I moved into a flat and the move took some effort, and while I maintained content initially I had so many things to keep on top of including looking for work with enough hours to pay the bills which is quite the task considering everything seems to be zero hours or 1-4 hour shifts which is nowhere near anything that you can survive off let alone even afford rent.  The council property itself was in a terrible state and I had to keep on them to get the garden sorted and then repairs made, which is still an ongoing process as repairs still need to be chased a year on, and the garden was only “trimmed” so I have to dig up the entire weed route structure as it seems to be knotweed and will just grow back vigorously.

Having been out in the middle of nowhere existing in a singular room out with no transport and no way to do anything my body and muscles deteriorated to nothing, so walking became difficult and I had to get back the ability to even move around places, now that my legs can walk albeit looking wonky as hell and only basic muscles not stretched or on joints it is time to move onto exercising properly and stretching to not only lose weight but get healthy again and bring the rest of my body in line with being capable of existing.  Unlike neo from the matrix I don’t just survive inside a ship, I have to walk to shops and make food and outmaneuver much longer distances so it’s a slower process to restore normalcy.

Then the new neighbours moved in upstairs and it has been a terrible process of sleep deprivation and torture as they sleep through the entire day and were noisy all night every night in the room directly above my bed and any mention of them causing problems with my sleep just made them get worse and worse, then they started opening all the windows in this freezing winter making the house completely inhospitable, and they haven’t emptied the trash in nearly 4 months, so it’s been festering and piling up in bin bags outside the property, also ripped open and scattered across the garden, so trying to get them to be human has been horrible, the number of complaints I have had to file has been horrendous.

On the upside though, fighting back in other forms so they cannot sleep in the day just so I can sleep at night has been working so I’ve been able to get a bit better at keeping up with content, and my ex has come back into my life after I thought I had lost her forever after I was stuck in the middle of nowhere and it took 2 days to respond to her texts during thunderstorms, where I was located the buses ran twice a day, first thing in the morning and return at 4:30pm, phone signal was atrocious even on sunny days you were lucky to even get a signal.  So after it took me two days of trying to respond she thought I ignored her and I’d lost her to someone else and she hated me.  So it’s been a couple of years since then and she’s always been angry any time I’ve messaged, but this time when asking her out for valentines she didn’t say no, just she wasn’t well enough as she does have an illness that causes her major problems, but we’ve been chatting since then, and that instantly made me happy and realize how miserable I had been.

Long story short, basically I’m feeling happier now, I’ve got the neighbours under control so that I can get at least enough sleep to do more than be completely drained in the daytime struggling to not fall unconscious, I do have a lot of decorating to be getting on with so content may be slower coming out and I do have a backlog of reviews I need to do, but mostly the repairs are done and I’ve got anti damp things I have had to purchase myself so I feel more confident to decorate and everything won’t go mouldy.  As a result of all of this I feel I have enough time to catch up on things and start producing content here again, provided nothing new comes up to change things.  I obviously need to get a balance on getting healthy and back in shape, getting and making food, looking for work, decorating and putting up content, as well as getting a decent nights sleep. So it’s quite a bit to balance through the week, but I do want to start putting up content again, and apart from the time saving aspect I didn’t want to put up horribly rushed terrible reviews, both written and recorded for the site, it’s better to not put something up than to rush out something terrible in my opinion.

So reviews should start coming back to the site, there might be time balancing between decorating until I get all of that sorted out, but keep coming back and checking as reviews should start again soon.

I ordered a new pc off ebay to get around the issues I’ve been having with ram difficulties with some more recent games and decided if I’m going to upgrade I might as well do it completely and get a really reasonable rig for the best price I can find, well I did get a reasonable one but it didn’t come at the specifications it was listed as on ebay, moral of the story is that you should never buy off ebay as this and my last pc both had problems with not being as described… Well you can but expect things to not be as described and have to get around those issues, and my way around this was to pay an extra £50 to get the processor of the standard I expected and not a downgrade but still get a reasonable upgraded rig, which I will do another post on later.

I haven’t got as many updates and articles out as I would have liked, I had intended for this new pc to arrive and make life a lot easier with being able to do other things on the other rig while edited video’s render on this one and vice versa without having to worry about lack of memory issues preventing rendering and causing problems (as 4gb just isn’t enough these days) and it doesn’t help that my camcorder died and has been buggy since I managed to partially revive it (sounding like it’s going to explode with a high pitched whine growing in intensity by the second when you turn it on is not fun, and the troubles connecting it to the pc makes me avoid using it. I will post a review of the camcorder finally at some point too, show how that wasn’t as simple as record and upload as the stupid thing records in mono and very quiet so I need to use the samson microphone separately to record a stereo track and edit this onto the track and then process and render which creates additional problems and editing time.

Anyway with this update I hope to add more content soon, I have a number of reviews I’m working on which on the old pc are of a lower quality than I can provide on the new pc, as I could ideally use full graphical settings on the new system while recording without having input lag or other issues, and hopefully OBS will actually record at 60fps and not need processing as camtasia does reduce everything to 30fps only in output.

I have also been thinking about redesigning the site in some form as it is a little outdated, it has the word blurb I thought was clever when the site started out as simply written articles, and since expanding into video’s I feel maybe I should make things a little more colourful and include pictures of myself even though I don’t feel very photogenic at present and need to get back into shape. But I do feel maybe I should have better more obvious social links on the site and have a nicer looking banner that isn’t word spaghetti, as most people don’t get the joke just as they don’t seem to get the hand drawn logo, but it is good to see some bigger youtubers appreciate the anti troll terrible pun because you can’t please them anyway as pewdiepie has his hand drawn intro and ssohpkc has the hand drawn bioshock thumbnail, and the point is you can never please them anyway and even if you make it look reasonable they say it’s shit so why not make it as shit as you can!

In the meantime do feel free to subscribe to the various channels and social media links as all the youtubers say “it really helps” and shows what you like etc, and is simply the easiest way to know of new content, twitter will post new articles here, subscriptions will show individual video’s of the lets plays etc.

Thanks for your support and if there is something in particular you are looking for more of do let me know, or any particular games or content you’d like me to make I welcome suggestions, I do have some upcoming things I have put off as they need the new system including syndrome which has just been released and the embargo has now passed and I want to play on the better system, clustertruck without any input lag so I wont flop about like a fish, D4 as hopefully it’ll actually work on the new system even though it should on this one lol! Soul axiom as I really like wales interactive and I’ve been looking forward to getting on with that. Along with many more reviews and other indie games I’ve got in the line as well as finishing off the existing series’

Stay tuned very soon for some steam based board games which I have also got under review and are being uploaded very soon.

I made this short video seperately as my other video went a little off track and I just ended up talking about her a lot, so I wanted a seperate apology video stating things I intend to create as video’s while my internet was down and I needed something further to distract me.
