About Windows 10 Upgrades in Telford

Sony Does NOT recommend upgrading to Windows 10 or 11
Designed to tie together multiple devices such as PCs, Tablets, Laptops and Smart Phones under one Microsoft Operating system, Windows 10 was intended to provide a solid platform from which Microsoft could "rule" these markets. However, Windows 11 was launched in October 2021.
Windows 10 was offered as a free upgrade to owners of legitimate (legal) Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 systems and Windows 11 was offered as a free upgrade from Windows 10.
When writing in October 2015, we concluded that Windows 10 was superior to Windows Vista, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1; slightly better than Windows 7.
When replaced by Windows 11 (in 2021), Windows 10 was excellent but Microsoft were effectively forcing people to use Windows 11.
Failure During Windows 10 or 11 Upgrade
If a Windows 10 or Windows 11 upgrade fails during the upgrade process, this will usually corrupt Windows and can render the computer unusable. The solution is to remove the hard disk drive, copy the personal files (pictures, documents etc) to a different computer and then perform a full installation of the original Operating system (Windows 7, 8 or 8.1) or perform an upgrade to Windows 10.
Download and install all updates (there may be over 200 Windows updates), copy the documents back to the correct folders and then (if desired) re run the Windows 10 or Windows 11 installation from a USB flash drive.
Driver Failure After Windows 10 or 11 Upgrade
Computer drivers are small programs which tell a computer how to control devices which are built into, or attached to a computer. If items fail to work following a Windows 10 or Windows 11 upgrade, thus will usually be due to driver failure.
On several Asus and Acer systems, the keyboard fails to work correctly after performing a Windows 10 upgrade. In many cases this is due to incompatible touchpad drivers. Upgrading the touchpad drivers therefore resolves the issue.
In many cases there are issues with Graphics card drivers. The most common of these seem to relate to NVidia graphics cards.
Eg; in some cases, systems which are connected to large TVs etc via HDMI leads fail following a Windows 10 upgrade. This is due to the correct drivers not being installed. Windows 10 therefore uses either basic or generic drivers, but these will not allow the graphics card to provide video and / or sound via HDMI. The solution is again to upgrade the driver.
However; in many cases the correct driver is not available and the only solutions are to connect to a different device, install a new graphics card with compatible drivers or return to Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 8.1.
Regarding Toshiba laptops which have been upgraded to Windows 10. There are numerous issues but the worst encountered so for relates to the Toshiba Satellite C850 (Windows 8 system). On some machines, after upgrading; the Battery fails to charge, the function keys do not work and the DVD drive does not work (when interrogated it reports a code 19 error). The battery and function key issues can be resolved by performing all updates and then installing the Windows drivers individually from within device manager and install the Toshiba Windows 8.1 upgrade drivers and rebooting the system. To resolve the DVD drive issue; uninstall the Toshiba Recovery Disk creation software and reboot the system.
