    • Location for the device must be turned on (Settings > Privacy > Location)

    Are you sure that you have used the US English install media, or could it be possible that you have used the UK English ISO? If so you need to set the location to United Kingdom.
    All of my ISO files say "en-US".
    The installers all started with US settings selected.

    If anything demands to know my physical location I disable it, so I probably didn't enable Geo-Location.
    IMO, there is no valid reason that anyone (other than emergency services and my family) should need know that information.

    Ok. I just did that @alphanumeric . I hope that will solve the issue. Thanks!
    @Wynona , that step is how to manually choose/update a driver. What I wanted to do was to stop driver installation from WU. I hope Alpha's solution fixed it.

If a driver is needed for a piece of hardware you'll get a prompt asking you if you want to check Windows update for a driver. You can then say no and manually install the one you want. I did what you posted in Windows 8.1 and it gets me a list of already installed drivers to pick from. Like doing a driver roll back etc.
    Oh, OK, Alpha. I see what you're saying now. The path is so similar . . . that's what I did to get my audio to install.

    The only thing I can think of is the weather app. When I let it find my location, I get weather keyed for my subdivision. Which is a crock, because there's no way weather can be pinpointed for that close a location.

    I don't use any of the Apps.

    I have a weather gadget in my Rainmeter skin.
    I "manually" request the weather info for a specific location.

    Okay so I have a question about display/graphics. I have a bit of a problem with my display, in that web pages sometimes have parts that disappear, and then reappear when I move the page up or down. I'll get a diagonal line and on one side of the line everything displays fine, and on the other side, it's gone or messed up. I have ATI Radeon graphics in an older Toshiba A215-S6804. The driver in device manager is just a MS basic display adapter. Is this similar to the problem discussed, or is this something different? anyone know? Thanks.

    AMD driver mess


    Okay, the AMD driver installed itself again and did the same B&W issue.

    When I rolled back the driver to previous version, 2 of my monitors turned B&W again and keeps both GPU fans spinning.

    The driver probably installed itself again because I did not restart the PC after modifying the update setup as suggested by @alphanumeric .

    I uninstalled the WU AMD drivers under device manager. But after rebooting the PC, it immediately re-installed itself again and brought back the colors of the monitor. Then I tried overwriting the WU AMD driver by installing the GPU driver from the disc it came with. It successfully overwritten the WU AMD driver but boom! B&W screen again.

    I tried a different approach. I downloaded the AMD 15.5 beta driver which was released in May 2015 and installed it. So far, everything is good. I guess the system is detecting that this is the latest and does not attempt to update it again.

    Here's the AMD Catalyst 15.5 beta driver source: http://support.amd.com/en-us/downloa...208.1%20-%2064

    That's a different problem but you can try installing your original driver from the support site of your laptop: http://support.toshiba.com/support/m...eeText=1909316
