Hi, I've been running the preview, as a full install, since when it became available.
Today, I encountered my very first problem, Puce Screen of Death.
This morning I logged on as usual, everything was fine. Checked emails, made an Ebay purchase, browsed some social networks (G+ and FB) etc.
Everything seemed fine, until I tried to close Chrome browser.
That was completely frozen, refused to close, couldn't move off my homepage, the browser was dead.
I tried to open the start menu, and reboot. No start menu.
Eventually, I did a hard shutdown.
Later today I tried to start again. The machine posted, revealing the puce screen of death!
After several hard shutdowns and attempts to boot, I eventually got a choice screen offering refresh, reset, and another option (can't recall what it was).
I chose refresh, this involved numerous reboots, numerous grey screens, but eventually booted into a clean install.
All my data was fine, even the wallpaper remained, none of the programmes I had installed were there, but there was a folder on the desktop, with all my installed programmes in.
I only had Adobe Lightroom, plus utilities, VLC etc installed, so I'm now back where I was.
So, no harm done, the refresh took about 35 minutes. I expected some change, I thought it might be a new build, but it's still 9860.
So no idea what happened there, but everything is fine now.
As I said, this is literally the first problem I have encountered, and I've been running W10 for several weeks.
Anybody else had this problem?
I wish someone would tell me what a "nit" is. I cant seem to locate one anywhereThis may seem like nit-picking to you...
Not to nit pick nit picking but the 2nd definition seems more apripos...
Nit - Merriam-Webster Dictionary2: a minor shortcoming
A nit is like a tad or a c--- hair. I think it's old English.
so for when its used in a post on here or any other forum ,"not to nit pick", means not to point out the small things in someone's comment
