RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

'Why is this guy always carrying around his laptop on his shoulder?' 'Oh, that's a Dell-user, now he can hear if his laptop is off and stays off...' 🐵

RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

use to be able to change USB setting in device manager, whether or not the USB did anything in sleep mode. dont remember how, tht was windows 7 days. but i had switched one of mine to stay on to charge my MP3 player while in sleep mode. if ur not plugged in i guess u could run the battery down, but, a lil MP3 player probably wouldnt do much.

Thank you for your test with the drivers. I applied your 3rd update which does resolve the issue.

RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

***, guess what? MS just pushed an update and now I can only boot to a fricking blue screen :-((( I am so tired of this new Windows, so extremely tired. It happened after applying the brand new KB3081441 and KB 3081444. This whole Windows is a total joke and we as end users are left in the dark. Yes, am extremely *** of now!!!

RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

After some reboots I got a generous offer to do a system recovery. Unfortunately, windows keeps trying to install those updates again and again. Dejavu all over. I am FURIOUS. Is no one from Dell actually checking those forums?

RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

ur on a laptop right.. u need switch to metered connection. it will check for updates , but wont download till u press download. its in settings / network and internet / advanced options. it will not affect anything but those upgrades. i think tho, its up to u to ck for updates, which do every day and night anyway. 

also here is the page to that program i mentioned, letting u hide updates, which means stop them from being available to ur machine. 

if u can, would appreciate any info u can share abt how u fixed or whatever is goin on

RE: Laptop won't shutdown completely in Windows 10

Thanks for the tip, found that one also. BUT I am also stubborn. I paid €1100-something for a laptop of good quality and reputation. That this just half a year old machine can't work with Windows 10 would be ridiculous. So I kept thinking. First of all on one of those bluescreens in some reboots was mentioned the very cryptic error VIDEO_DXGKRNL_FATAL_ERROR. After doing a system restore to a moment just before installing those updates everything worked fine again.


You have to know that - on advise of MS themselves - I run the standard NVIDIA-drivers installed by Windows. This because last week NVIDIA's own full fledged-drivers led to a continuous reboot-loop after another bodged (botched? I always forget, not native English) proposturous update failure. To my surprise the Windows-drivers - obviously made by NVIDIA themselves - adviced me to do a driver-update. Since I have nothing to loose anyway I installed that one, so now I had an official NVIDIA-driver installed. I made again a system restore point after a restart, since everything worked fine. Then I installed those pesky updates again and... it worked! Smooth, quick and fast without a hickup. Conclusion: this time Windows' OWN drivers messed up an update. If it wouldn't be so frustrating sad it would be comical. But for that I am not in the mood.


I hope this mega-crash didn't destruct essential system files, and that system restore protected me enough. Because installing AGAIN? no thanks. I do have HD images lying here from today and yesterday, but if it is not really necessary I will not put those back. Since this procedure might introduce a whole boatload of other problems. 😕 Let's keep our fingers crossed. Every update will be an adventure from now one, I am afraid.

Regards,


Ronald.
