Windows 10 (Horror/ Success) Stories
« on: July 29, 2015, 06:38:59 AM »
installing windows 10 right now on my design laptop, just wanted to know how it went for others who have done the upgrade.

Are you enjoying?

Do you have a undying desire to burn your local Microsoft Store to the ground?

Tell us about it :)

open windows update and it should show up there :)

Mine took less then 20 min start to finish to upgrade on one of my backup laptops.

Laptops very fast now and graphics based programs seem to be a little faster :)

Ok, Ill just keep waiting. Been updating a couple other computers and windows update seems pretty slow right now. Thinking Ill probably be waiting a while since lots of people are probably trying to get it too.

Nice, I want to try on the old E6400 Dell laptop first, should probably run good on it.

I've got a Dell E6430 that runs pretty alright on Win 8.1 Pro, so I don't expect any issues with performance on 10 Pro. My upgrade was started this morning before work so I'll update later on once I've tinkered around a bit.

GoG did a big talk a while back about how windows 10 will be super GoG friendly, I called marketing BS but today I was proven wrong.

Fallout 1, 2 and tactics have always been sub par on windows 8.1 they have random stuttering that drives me crazy.

Today upgraded to windows 10 and BAM! issues are all gone, all game play is now flawless also the scenes actually work now on some of the super old original games.

GoG and Microsoft I salute you:)

Waited all day for it to download and still nothing. Ended up getting the download tool from Microsoft, installing now!

Awesome, I am enjoying it as I wasted my whole lunch gaming haha.

Also happy there is a new quadro driver that fixed a ton of odd issues I was having

I've been running windows 10 for a couple weeks or so, no hiccups here. Didn't even need to install drivers, windows update handled it perfectly with up to date drivers.

Been running Windows 10 on my Dell 6410 without any major issues. The biggest issue I ran into was the default trackpad software installed by Windows would constantly shut off my trackpad at critical times so I removed it and no issues since.

Another odd quirk is that even when my laptop is plugged in at 100% the words "not charging" is displayed which is annoying and hopefully removed.

I'm hesitant on upgrade to windows 10 right away because I play Final Fantasy 14 on my PC and unsure how compatible the new windows is with it. I remember when windows vista came out and I played Final Fantasy 11 back in the day it wasn't compatible for a few months and had to resort to playing it on Playstation 2.

Been testing out on my Dell E6400 and works perfect. Not a issue and all hardware works. Seems to be very smooth. I just have a older version of office and Adobe 9 pro that I mostly use. Tried a couple old games in steam and they were perfect also.

Now to try on the gaming machines.

So far so good. It reset the settings on my trackpad and Edge made itself the primary browser but that's barely mentionable. Seems Lightroom 5.7 and Photoshop CC are running without a hitch as well as Word 2013. (But that's kinda expected)

Seeing as I don't have an MS account linked to my laptop, it seems WiFi Sense for the most part is non-functional.

Good to hear the positives. I have been considering putting it on my laptop, but I am scared of issues. I might have to bite the bullet and go for it. Anyone try any acer laptops yet?
