Well, looks like you are ahead.
Well, looks like you are ahead.
I've been having random freezing in 14279 rs1 where the mouse pointer disappears and turns into something that looks like a capital I ( just like when you hover over text in a forum post here ) It becomes unresponsive for something ~ less than 30 sec . the KB is unresponsive also before the mouse pointer re appears .
This happens in Chrome 64 & also happens occasionally in file explorer or photo viewer ,Groove Music ,etc . ,it's random and more frequent when multitasking and or using multiple browsing tabs and or apps. Anybody else see this it's more frequent than prior builds and just to note I haven't done a clean install in a good while and have been doing update installs of the Insider builds ?
The new login screen should not say the Numlock is on or off unless the wrong pin or password is entered. Otherwise its OK with new animation effects but not an earthshaking improvement. I don't like the user picture embedded in what might be a custom background.
I hope a new build will be released to the Fast Ring before next Friday but according to buildfeed
is two days old
Did you meant Capslock? Don't think I've ever seen Numlock warning. (But could be wrong)
But here's the kicker . . . normally if something's not right, it'll be the update that's got problems and a clean install seems to make things work all better. Well, not for me this time . . . Things seemed to be working fine with the update, but they're not so fine with the clean install.
Oh, yeah, let's ad one more anomaly to the mix. Firefox has a new update and so does Office 365 2016, not to mention that 14279 is also a new build!
Way Cool.... thanks for the terminology I'm just going to wait and see if they bring us a new build that works better next week or if it doesn't fix the issue I will probably make an ESD > ISO after the WU download before the restart /install and do a clean install by mounting the ISO or if they don't bring us a new build by then I will just mount the 14279 ISO I made and clean install .
A new SSD 500GB hard drive should land on my doorstep next Wednesday, so I'll be able to set dual boot up again. At that point, I'll have both Insider and the November RTM so I can at least figure out what may be going on.
It ALMOST makes me wonder if it's a windows kernel issue causing the hanging or something I'm Seeing transient major HDD and CPU spikes when (or right after ) it happens but not *usually at other times in taskman where I never saw them before under the same conditions and there is no malware causing it as far as I can tell .
I could boot into 10586 Th2 on the same NTFS hdd and look for it there but I use it now and then .
I just shoved the 10586 th2 cumulative update in there a couple of days ago and used it for a good while and I don't recall this behavior there but it seems slower than these rs1 builds
Been thinking about putting both OS on an SSD also or at least the Insider test builds I do the daily driving in for the duration of the program .
PS sometimes this PC slows down randomly on 14279 and I see big HDD and CPU spikes (sometimes 100% hdd) I can't explain also when it does that .
I been lazy and haven't checked the error logs perhaps I should look in there
