‘Something Happened’ error

Method 1 ( 4 steps )

Step 1: Hit the Windows key on the keyboard to open Start menu.

Step 2: Type in “Control Panel” in the search field to locate it and then launch the app.

Step 3: Click the Clock > Language > Region icon to bring up the new interface. Go to Region section and select the Administrative tab.

Step 4: Click on the Change System Locale button and set it to “English (US).” Restart your computer and then start the Windows 10 update process, which should now complete without any hassles.

If you are still facing installation issues with Windows 10, then try the second fix:


Method 2 ( 4 steps )

For this method, just grab the Windows 10 ISO file and install it on your PC via bootable USB or DVD drive. You can create the bootable USB by choosing the option “Create installation media for another PC” during the setup or if you can burn the ISO file to a DVD.

This error may also be triggered while creating Windows install media with insufficient privileges. To create a stable installation disk, do the following:

Step 1: Download and install the Windows 10 Download tool (ISO files for 32 and 64-bit) from the link provided.

Step 2: Restart your computer and log in as administrator if you have not done so.

Step 3: Launch the Start Menu and type in “Windows 10 Download” and hit enter. Once the app appears in search results, just right-click on it and Select “Run as Administrator”.

Step 4: Follow the onscreen instructions detailed in the application to create the installation media. After you have created a bootable USB drive or DVD, just install Windows 10 by booting through one of them.

That’s it. Windows 10 will be automatically installed and you just have to follow onscreen prompts.





How to fix No Sound on Windows 10 issue



Method 1

Step 1: Right-click the sound icon in the taskbar located at the bottom right of the screen and select Playback Devices from the ensuing context menu.

Step 2: Select the current playback device in use and by default it should be the speakers. Double-click on it to open its properties window.

Step 3: Got to Advanced section and change the bit rate to either of the following – 24bit/44100 Hz or 24bit/192000Hz – depending on the speaker configuration.




If the issue is still unresolved, you can try another method for restoring sound:

Method 2

Step 1: Launch Start Menu, search for Device Manager and then launch it.

Step 2: Expand Sound and audio devices.

Step 3: Right-click on the current sound driver and choose uninstall.

Step 4: Finally, click on Scan for hardware changes and the updated driver will be automatically installed.

That’s it. Your computer speakers should now be able to play sound normally. If the sound is still not working, then try downloading and installing the latest sound card drivers for Windows 10 from the manufacturer’s website.











How to fix missing notifications issue in Windows 10 – Tablets –


You can fix this with the Windows registry import, which resets the registry key value in the following path; HKEY_CURRENT_USER / SOFTWARE / Microsoft / Windows CurrentVersion / PushNotification. Perform the below steps to do this:

Step-1: Download the AppDB Registry Import

Step 2: You will get the download in a compressed file. Extract the appdb.reg file from the compressed file

Step-3: Locate appdb.reg and double-click on it

Step-4: You will get a warning message

Step-5: Click Yes and allow the registry fix to import

Step-6: After the process is completed, reboot your PC


Once your PC restarts you should see the missing apps under Settings>> System>> Notifications & Actions. It means, even though you have configured notifications for an app, the Notifications & Actions is the location where you can manage notifications and customise notifications settings for a specific app.









How to fix Windows 10 Chrome browser freezing issue


A recent Google Chrome update (v45.0.2454.85 m) seems to have reactivated the browser crashing and freezing issue on Windows 10 systems as several users have been complaining about the issue on Microsoft Forums, Reddit and the Chromium Project issue tracker, in the last few days. The issue has been confirmed on both 32-bit and 64-bit variants of the Windows 10 OS.


The Chrome browser freezing/crashing issue was first spotted in Windows 10 build 10525, which was released by Google just a couple of weeks ago. And the issue seemed to be temporarily resolved through a recent maintenance update from Google.

However, folks at Bidness ETC have confirmed that the issue has returned with the advent of the latest Chrome update, as several users are reportedly encountering browser freezes while snapping the updated version of the Chrome browser to one side of the desktop.

It is further ascertained that the browser remains unresponsive, until it is returned to a floating position. As there is no fix available at the moment, you can simply try using the Chrome in a floating window or switch back to the earlier version, using the step-by-step guide provided below :


Step 1: Launch Windows Start menu and search for Program and Features. Click the application’s icon from the search result.

Step 2: All the installed apps on the computer will be displayed in the list. Just select Google Chrome from the list and hit Uninstall.

Step 3: Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the browser uninstall process.

Step 4: Finally, download the previous version of Chrome: Google Chrome 44.0.2403.157. After the download is complete, just run the .exe file to install the older version of the browser.

That’s it. You should no longer face any browser freezing issue with this older version of Chrome and you may continue using it until Google rolls out a new bug-fix update for the same.



How to fix blank tiles on Start Menu



Several Windows 10 users have taken to Microsoft Forums and Reddit, complaining about the missing tiles issue with the Start Menu, soon after performing the fresh upgrade from Windows 7 or 8.1 to Windows 10. The root cause of the issue is attributed to Windows 10 universal apps, wherein a Reddit user hPl3K has posted a screenshot illustrating the bug in action.


Step 1: Press Windows Key + Q on the keyboard to bring up the Search Menu, type powershell and choose Windows PowerShell from the results. Then right-click on it and choose Run as administrator from the context menu to unlock special permissions and privileges.

Step 2: Type the following command in the administrative Windows PowerShell window, and then hit Enter key to execute the command:

[* Get-AppXPackage | Foreach {Add-AppxPackage -DisableDevelopmentMode -Register "$($_.InstallLocation)AppXManifest.xml"} *]


Wait until the command is successfully executed, and then quit Windows PowerShell, before rebooting your computer. Once you restart the computer, problems with the Start Menu should be resolved.












How to force Windows 10 activation


Prospective Windows 10 users have been complaining about a bunch of activation errors and issues with Microsoft’s newest operating system ever since its release, while veteran Windows users have been unearthing new ways of completing the activation successfully.

Folks at Bidness ETC have shared a simple method to force activate Windows 10 on your computer, after completing the checklist provided below:



Ensure that you are updating to Windows 10 on a legitimate copy of Windows 8 or 7.1 or using a valid, purchased license key from Microsoft for clean installation.

If you encounter any of the error messages such as 0XC004E003, 0×8007000D, 0×8007232b or 0×8007007B, it could be due to peak load on Microsoft’s activation servers, which may be attributed to huge volumes of activation requests made at the time.

In such a scenario, users are advised to re-attempt activation via force activation method as outlined below:


Step 1: Launch the Start Menu and search for Command Prompt. Then right-click it and select “Run as Administrator” from the context menu.

Step 2: Once the Command Prompt launches, type: slmgr.vbs –rearm and hit Enter to execute the command.

Step 3: Quit the Command Prompt window and reboot your PC.










[* How to fix stuck at 25% installation or error 0xC1900101 - 0x20004 *]


Windows 10 has undoubtedly been the largest online update release till date with more than 67 million PCs already running Microsoft’s latest desktop operating system (OS). The number of inherent bugs in the new OS has also grown substantially ever since the software released.


Windows 10 users are encountering the most common installation error 0xC1900101 – 0×20004, wherein the device [* gets stuck at 25% installation ] or [ when 84% of the files have been copied *].


Apparently, the blue LED on the PC stops blinking and the system freezes when this error occurs, during the Windows 10 installation.

Folks at Bidness ETC have confirmed that performing a hard reset will inadvertently roll back your computer software to Windows 8.1 or 7, while Microsoft is yet to address this critical issue.

It has been identified that the root cause of this issue is linked to the difference in the way Windows 10 and Windows 7/8.1 interact with internal components and external peripherals.

Furthermore, Windows 10 users with more than one storage or optical disk drive such as SSD or HDD are said to be affected with this issue. However, there is a simple fix to resolve this problem:


Step 1: Ensure that you install Windows 10 via thumb drive or from a CD/DVD, as the Windows 10 update method is still buggy and unstable.

Step 2: Disconnect all peripherals or external devices connected to the PC, apart from the installation media or optical drive, keyboard, mouse and monitor.

Step 3: Also disconnect the SATA cable of your second DVD drive and extra storage drives, except the one on which you want to install Windows 10.




How to fix no Wi-Fi available issue after Windows 10 upgrade


Users might have come across an issue after Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8.1, wherein the wireless networks are not available.

It occurs even when the wireless network adapter functions properly as well as after restarting and reinstalling the wireless network adapter driver several times.

The issue might also prevent the wired Ethernet connection from functioning properly.

According to Microsoft, the issue is caused by unsupported VPN software present during the Windows 10 upgrade.


“The issue may occur if older VPN software is installed on Windows 8.1 and is present during the upgrade to Windows 10. Older software versions contain a Filter Driver (the Deterministic Network Enhancer) which is not properly upgraded, leading to the issue,” explains Microsoft.

There is a solution for this. Performing it is as simple as issuing a command. For a detailed guide check the following steps:


Step-1: Launch Command Prompt as Admin. For this, right-click Start button from there and select Command Prompt (Admin) from the drop-down menu

Step-2: Execute the following command and then press Enter

reg delete HKCRCLSID{988248f3-a1ad-49bf-9170-676cbbc36ba3} /va /f

Step-3: Enter the bellow command and press Enter

[* netcfg -v -u dni_dne *]

Now restart your PC and check the Wi-Fi settings. You should now be able to get all visible networks around.





How to fix Black Screen at boot or AMD driver issues after upgrade


Windows 10 has been plagued with persistent bugs and inherent issues ever since its release, even as discerning users and industry experts are finding numerous ways to tackle or fix these problems permanently.

Some users are reportedly flooding Microsoft Forums with complaints about delayed boot-up issues, which are supposedly due to faulty AMD video card drivers.

The delayed boot-up issue is characterised by a black screen with a mouse cursor during the boot process, wherein users are reportedly forced to wait up to a minute on the same screen, before the login window appears.

It is confirmed that the issue is limited to newly installed AMD Catalyst 15.7.1 video card drivers and it can be resolved by restoring or reverting to earlier drivers.

This issue can be easily resolved using simple troubleshooting steps as outlined by the folks at Bidness Etc:


Step 1: Launch Start Menu and go to Settings > System

Step 2: Choose Apps and Features tab in the left pane and then find the AMD Catalyst Install Manager from the list. Finally, click Uninstall

Step 3: Select ‘Yes’ to confirm the User Account Control (UAC) prompt to grant permission for uninstalling the drivers

Step 4: Wait for the video card drivers to uninstall and then download the previous 15.7 version of the AMD Catalyst drivers, based on the system architecture (32-bit or 64-bit) of your computer

Step 5: Let the driver download complete. Then run the .exe file and extract the installation files for the driver to a desired location (preferably desktop)

Step 6: Close the AMD driver setup wizard after the extraction completes

Step 7: Once again launch the Start Menu and open up the Device Manager

Step 8: Scroll down and locate Microsoft Basic Display under Display drivers. Note: This means the video card drivers are not installed for the display

Step 9: Just right-click on the Display drivers icon and click update

Step 10: In the ensuing dialog box, click Browse and then go to the folder where you extracted the Catalyst 15.7 drivers. By default, it should be located under C: > AMD folder

Step 11: Once you have selected the correct folder location for the driver, just click Okay and the setup wizard should automatically identify the driver within the folder and install it

Step 12: Finally, reboot your PC and it should start booting up normally without any boot delays or unexpected Black Screen, just before the Windows login.






























How to fix Nvidia driver issues after upgrade


Numerous Windows 10 users are reportedly facing issues with Nvidia driver installations and various display problems after the free upgrade, as mandatory Windows 10 updates are apparently conflicting with Nvidia’s native driver system.

Folks at Bidness ETC have reported that the system’s display output crashes after Windows 10 automatically updates the Nvidia graphics card drivers via Windows update.

Affected Windows 10 users have taken to Reddit and Nvidia forums complaining about poor image rendering and stuttering issues while playing video games.

The simplest fix for this issue requires you to just restart the computer, after Windows Update has completed installing the video card drivers.

Nvidia has reportedly released new drivers to fix the issue, following widespread user complaints on forums and Reddit about Windows 10 driver problems.

You can either download the necessary Nvidia driver-fix via Windows Update by installing package KB3073930 or manually download the drivers, using the step-by-step guide provided below:


Step 1: Launch your favourite web browser (Firefox, Chrome or Internet Explorer) and navigate to the URL: www.geforce.com/drivers

Step 2: Scroll down to the Manual Driver Search section and enter your computer’s configuration and hit Start Search

Step 3: Download the latest Nvidia drivers (v353.62) with Windows Hardware Quality Labs (WHQL) certification that has a release date of 29 July

Step 4: After the driver download completes, right-click on the downloaded file > choose Run as Administrator from the context menu

Step 5: Follow the onscreen instructions provided by the driver installation wizard to install the latest Nvidia driver. Wait until the driver installation completes and then restart the computer.



How to fix Windows 10 high memory usage issue


The Reddit forum has been swamped with posts on the high memory usage issue after Windows 10 upgrade.

It appears that even when the system starts at normal RAM usage, in a few hours it increases to the maximum level. Despite turning all the major processes off, the memory usage remains the same.


“A few of us at the office have Windows 10. I noticed earlier today that my system was being sluggish. I checked the task manager and was using an enormous amount of RAM. I sorted processes by RAM usage and the System process was using over a gig. I checked every one else’s and it was the same. After a re-boot it was using about 130MB and has grown to over 250MB in the last hour or so,” observes a Redditor.


The faulty drivers seem to be the culprit in such situations. If your system is also plagued with the same issue, consider trying out the following guide detailing how to fix the high memory usage.


IBTimes UK warns its readers that it will not be held liable for any damage to the device, hence proceed at your own risk. Also ensure that you have installed the latest drivers for your PC.


Step-1: Download and install the Windows Driver kit

Step-2: Go to Start menu from the Windows key and open Command Prompt. Right-click on the resulting icon and select Run as Administrator from the drop-down menu

Step-3: Type cd C:Program Files (x86)Windows Kits8.1Toolsx64 and press Enter to go to the directory in the command prompt where WDK was installed

Step-4: Type poolmon.exe then press Enter. When the utility opens up, press P to sort via pooltype then B to sort it according to number of bytes

Step-5: Note down the pooltag of the item which is using a majority of the memory. Open another command prompt to check which driver the tag belongs to. For this type f indstr / s then the tag which you have noted

Step-6: The command will point to a specific sys file. Open the file properties to check which driver the file belongs to. When you find out the driver, head over to the Microsoft site to download the official driver for Windows 10

Hopefully, these steps will address the memory issue on your Windows 10 powered PC. Microsoft has also outlined a few tips for preventing low memory problems in Windows 10.





























Windows 10 upgrade, installation Codes errors and how to fix them

Error 0×800F0923:

You get this error when a driver or other software on your PC is not compatible with upgrade to Windows 10.

Open the Get Windows 10 app, click the hamburger menu, click Check Your PC to find out which driver or software is incompatible. Head over to the Microsoft support site to get the latest drivers or software update. If there are no new updates, just uninstall the faulty software or driver. Then continue the process to install Windows 10 and try to reinstall the driver and software.

Error 0×80073712:

This suggests a file that is needed by Windows update is either damaged or missing.

Error 0×80200056:

When you see error code 0×80200056, this means the upgrade was interrupted as your PC restarted accidentally. The fix is quite simple – you just need to perform the upgrade again, but ensure that your system is plugged in to a power source through the process.

Error 0×800F0922:

This error means your PC failed to connect to the Windows Update servers. If you are using a VPN connection, disconnect from the network and turn off the VPN, and try upgrading Windows 10 again.

The error also means there is not enough space in the System Reserved partition. To resolve this, all you need is a third-party software to increase the size of the System Reserved partition.

Errors ‘We couldn’t complete the updates. Undoing changes. Don’t turn off your computer’ and ‘Failure configuring Windows Updates. Reverting changes’:

Both the above errors are generic ones, which might appear any time when a Windows update fails. You need to find the error code for the failed update by viewing your update history. Go to Control panel>> All control panel Items / Windows Update / View update history. Then double click the update that has a failed status and check the error details.

Error code 0xC1900200 – 0×20008 and 0xC1900202 – 0×20008:

These errors indicate that your system does not meet the minimum requirements to download or install the upgrade to Windows 10.

Head over to Windows compatibility center to know more about the Windows 10 compatibility for the particular hardware and software.

Error 0xC1900208 – 0×4000C:

This could occur when an incompatible app installed on your PC is the main culprit that is blocking the upgrade from completing. Check if you have installed such mischievous apps and uninstall them and try the upgrade again.

Error 0×80070070 – 0×50011, 0×80070070 – 0×50012 and 0×80070070 – 0×60000:

If your PC does not have enough free space to install the Windows 10 upgrade, you might encounter this error. If this happens, free up some space on the driver, then perform the upgrade again.

Error ‘The update isn’t applicable to your computer’:

This error happens when your PC does not have required updates installed. Ensure that all important updates are installed on your PC before you perform the Windows 10 upgrade.

Windows 10 activation problem:

Another common issue raised by users is an error message that says, ‘Windows not activated’ after performing a clean install on Windows 10, according to Windows Central.

Microsoft allows users to perform a clean installation of Windows 10. Also, it recommends users to reserve their free copies using Get Windows 10 app. This is to minimise the possibility of errors and other issues related to activate Windows 10.

A number of users prefer to perform a clean installation. To do this, you should upgrade your current version using the Windows Update.

It’s important to convert Windows 7 or, 8.1 product key to the version that will activate Windows 10.

If your PC cannot activate, you will see an option to activate by phone. Open the Settings app, then navigate to Update & security and select Activation.

Activation errors: When trying to activate Windows 10, you might get error 0xC004C003, which means the issue is your PC connecting to the Microsoft activation server. In this case, wait then try to activate again.

You might also get error 0xC004F061 – that means you are trying to activate Windows 10, but you did not have a qualified version of Windows pre-installed on your system. In this case reinstall the previous version of Windows and then try to upgrade to Windows 10.


How to fix Windows 10 Cumulative update getting stuck at 30%


A week after the public release of Windows 10, Microsoft issued the Cumulative update that includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10.

Windows 10 Cumulative update for Windows 10 for x64-based systems (KB3081424), replaces the 3074683 update.

The update fails to install, throwing an error – “We couldn’t complete the updates, undoing the changes”. The installation gets stuck at 30%, reboots and uninstalls the update. Here is what happens while installing the update explains a member at the Microsoft community forum.

I have the same problem. The KB3081424 will not complete the install. It gets to about 30% and then reboots and uninstalls the updates. I downloaded the update directly and tried that method of install and get the same problem. No success. This is a major problem that needs a fix.


Forum member RicardoTongel, who has shared a possible workaround for the issue, observes that some invalid registry entries residing at the location (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SOFTWARE / Microsoft / Windows NT / CurrentVersion / ProfileList) might be related to user accounts that no longer exist in the system itself. Hence removing them should resolve the error and you can get started with the installation.

Try out the following fix if you are facing installation error with the Cumulative update.


Step-1: Click Start, then launch registry editor by typing regedit. When the ‘regedit / Run command’ displays on the top of the list, press Enter

Step-2: Inside the regedit, navigate to the following code

Step-3: Back up the registry key. In the ProfileList, click File, Export then choose a suitable location on your desktop and type in a file name and save

Step-4: On the left, you should see a list of profile IDs, such as S-1-5-18, S-1-5-19, S-1-5-20, including several other names

Step-5: Search for ProfilelmagePath. If any entry in the ProfileList has a ProfileImagePath that is not useful, right-click on the Profile ID and select Delete

Step-6: Close the regedit file, then reboot your system. Click Start>> Settings>> Update & Security, you should now be able to see KB3081424 and it should start installing

Hopefully, the above fix should help you overcome the installation error, allowing an error-free installation experience.






















How to fix iTunes not detecting or recognising iPhone/iPad


Reboot your iPhone and PC

Just reboot your iOS device as well as the computer. Then try connecting your iPhone to PC and check if the issue is resolved.


Connect iPhone to another USB port on PC

The issue might be as simple as a damaged or defective USB port. To verify this problem, just connect your iPhone to a different USB port on the computer.


Try installing/reinstalling latest version of iTunes

Install the latest version of iTunes (v12.2.1.16) for Windows 10 on your computer.

Install all Windows updates

Go to Settings (WinKey+I) > Update & Security > Windows Update and ensure that your computer has all the latest Windows updates installed.


Trust the computer on prompt when connecting iOS device

Step 1: Whenever you connect your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch to computer, a prompt message reading “Trust this Computer?” will pop-up on the iOS device.

Step 2: Just tap on the Trust button in the pop-up window and that should resolve the issue in most cases.

Windows 10 errors All in One

There is absolutely no question that the response to Windows 10 has been overwhelmingly positive. True, anything would seem like a huge improvement compared to the disaster that was Windows 8. But people love that the Start Menu has made its triumphant return and replaced the Start screen that everyone hated so much, and new features like Cortana and the Edge web browser are big checks in the pro column as well. Of course, nothing is perfect. In these early days, you can expect to run into a fair number of issues with Windows 10. So , as great as the response has been so far… it’s still Windows, so there will inevitable be some bumps on the road. If you do update to Windows 10 in these early days these are some of the common problems you may encounter. Of course, in our ebook “ Windows 10 errors All in One First edition ” we’ve also included some notes on how to fix these issues… if a fix is even available.
