    Window 10 settings screen dead

    On my HP laptop, the settings screen comes up, but you can do anything with it, like run backups or check for new updates. Is there a patch that will fix this? Or, gadzooks, do I have to rebuild?

    Hmm, that's a new one I think. Has Settings been ok, and now failed to respond? Or have you just recently upgraded and found it didn't work? Does Settings work in safe mode? If you do a clean boot?

    Do you have any useful System Restore points? Disk images? (Disk imaging is an essential tool which can get you to a previous working state without technical help in a relatively short time- using free software - or commercial).

    Raised here:

    - those are basic general fixes.

    Ultimately if there's no other idea, you can do an in-place upgrade repair install (which keeps all programs and most settings).
