    Failure to Restart Repaired w/ Update KB3081448?

    New HP 15.

    Upgraded to Windows Ten 2-3 weeks ago.

    When updates began being pushed and a restart was required, my laptop would freeze during restart.

    I would then power down / up and all is well.

    I noticed during restart my wifi lamp would go orange (disconnected) and cycle to blue (connected).

    If I powered down / up the same sequence would occur followed by my audio off lamp (orange) illuminating.

    Happened every time. Figured it had something to do with an audio driver but I don't have the knowledge to say if it was that or the phase of the moon.

    Today I received update KB3081448, went to restart and it actually restarted.

    I knew when the speaker button lit I was good.

    Just for s&g, I have "restarted" 5 times in about the past 30 minutes successfully.

    No idea what the update is or if it's a coincidence however restart now works.

    Just throwing this out there for those who may be documenting all this stuff.

    Initially had same issue when i first went to 7 from XP and then 7 to 10. Good for folks to know.

    To err is human, to really foul things up requires a computer.

    I seemed to have gotten that update 2-3 days later than several folks I've seen on assorted forums. The "fix" could be coincidental however I'm not too big on coincidences. BUT, this weekend I reprogrammed one of two of my garage doors. Hit the remote and both doors opened. With my systems, the odds of that happening are 1 out of roughly 3.5 billion. Crazy. I deprogrammed one opener and then reprogrammed my 4-5 remotes again for that door.

    Moments ago I clicked restart and it's happening again. This is my first "restart" since I thought the problem had corrected itself.
