Windows 10: My laptop has forgotten everything that it's done for the past week...
My laptop has forgotten everything that it's done for the past week...
Sorry if the subject line is a bit vague but I couldn't think of a better way of putting it.
I put my laptop into Sleep mode last night (running windows 10) and when I woke it this morning all of the files I'd worked on/created/downloaded over the past week had gone. This also applied to the desktop changes I'd made (ie which apps appear in the launch bar at the base of the screen) and even my internet browsing history - this shows everything I've visited today and then it continues with last Sunday - one week ago!
It has retained any software I've loaded (though not the desktop shortcuts) but it acts as though I've never used them before and I have to go through initial set-up or registration again. I've also got all of the files that have sat unaltered over the past week but everything i've looked at is completely gone.
Not so much a case of crying over a few lost files but I really need to understand what may have happened so it wont happen again.
Thanks very much,
So the past 24 hours my computer will BSOD with different errors each time it seem like. Weird things have been going on, I have a SSD and HDD set up with mostly everything except the OS on the HDD. Getting a lot of crashes and complete...
A elderly neighbor allowed the Windows 10 upgrade from a Windows 7 machine.
After the upgrade all seemed ok until a restart.
Apparently the original user account was set not to require a login and the password was long forgotten.
Since yesterday I've got the following every time I try to use Cortana, whether clicking the icon or talking to her; web searches are also down. Anyone else having this issue?
Just also noticed, Bing is down too. Perhaps that's why?
