    Some suggestions HG.

    1. When updating your computer stay with it.

    2. Don't use Sleep or Hibernation for a while. Get your system up and running with all the updates and programs you want for a few days. Then get into Sleep, Hibernation, monitor shut off time.

    You never want anything to interfere with your updates because it can cause many problems. I know it takes a long time for the updates on a new install. Make a pot of coffee and hang in there.

    3. Get a copy of your motherboard manual and keep it handy as long as you have that motherboard.

    Note:
    I have been using Windows Updates for my video card drivers for about a year now with no problems on two computers with different video cards.

    Thanks, LB. Yes, the first thing I head for is Windows Update to make sure it's up to date and that they all install correctly. I have it set to auto update and check it daily that it is. My 8.1 side I'll check weekly.

    Another thing I do is leave it running while not using to do its thing on maintenance. I do shut 'er down at night, though.

    The video/screen problem seems to be evening out. Haven't had one all day.

I feel that we as experts on this forum should try and persuade any novices who are not sure about upgrading to Windows 10 should help explain why its good for them to upgrade from earlier versions. So I'll start off: Latest security ...
Read somewhere that the latest Win 10 Insider Prev will be upgrades to Win 10 full when it is released. A good idea to install this sooner rather than upgrading Win 7 / 8.1 to 10?
