At this moment, my computer is having seizures. Well, it seems like it. The lock screen keeps flashing in desktop mode. It won’t start up properly. So, I’m now doing a system restore to a week ago.
This isn’t the first time this has happened. Damn Windows 8.1. I miss Windows 7.
Well, let’s see if this works.
I’m typing this from my computer, so the restore obviously worked. At first, I restored to the last saved restore point, but that was after the most recent Windows update. The problem was still there. So, I had to restore to a week ago. That worked. Everything seems to work properly now.
The problem I was having was something that happened on another update more than a year ago. I’ve seen a couple of reasons for this issue, such as incompatible video driver and a faulty update that affected the startup program. Turns out my fast startup program was repeatedly running.
Well, hopefully no problems for now. This was originally going to be a temporary replacement computer until I could get a new one after we’ve moved to Canada. I think I’ll keep this computer as a writing computer for when I’m going from place to place or traveling.
