You could try installing them in Safe Mode with Networking should it be a 3rd party program that is blocking.

What error messages are you getting ?

Computer Help / Re: Registry Changes Reverting After Restart
« Last post by Boggin on December 08, 2019, 01:52:29 AM »
Have you tried the Troubleshooter via Start - Settings cog - Update & Security -Troubleshoot then scroll down to and click on Bluetooth.

You may need the device plugged in for the tests.

If that still reports corruption then open a Command Prompt (Admin) and enter these cmds -

dism /online /cleanup-image /startcomponentcleanup

dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

sfc /scannow

shutdown /r /t 00

Check Device Manager after the reboot.

While the first three cmds will take some time, let me know if either report anything other than successful and the last one report anything other than no integrity violations found.

If those haven't resolved the problem then you may need to perform a repair install which won't affect your personal stuff or installed programs.

Before tweaking my services and registry, I installed my driver. But after tweaking I cannot install the drivers again, (I wanted to upgrade my drivers). I used DDU and even tried to reset all my keys and settings to default, with still no luck. I really do not want to re install the OS because This is a brand new partition and I just got all my apps and programs set. HELP!

Computer Help / Registry Changes Reverting After Restart
« Last post by Hoss on December 07, 2019, 01:29:19 PM »
First, thanks in advance for the help.

I'm attempting to troubleshoot an issue with bluetooth functionality on my Asus Rog laptop.

I've downloaded the Intel drivers and still see the device Exclaimed Out!.  I uninstall the driver and restart and I can see all my devices, woohoo.  When I restart I don't see any devices listed and that old exclaimation point is there again.  When I double click on the device, Windows 10 says there is a corrupted registry entry or other registry issue.

So I decided to try a troubleshooting step where I changed the version of Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion from 6.3 to 6.2.  Unfortunately, after I change the value and restart my changes revert back to version 6.3.  I rad RegEdit in Admin mode.  I'm at a loss.

Any ideas?  Thanks.

See if Method 5 in this article will help with that - https://www.top-password.com/knowledge/reset-windows-10-password.html

A Reset isn't an option when you boot up with install media.

I've removed your duplicate post.

I can get to the troubleshoot but can't do anything because I can't remember the password needed. I tried every one I've used and none work.

I tried using a boot disk, didn't work.

Used the Windows update DVD, it wouldn't start.

It all depends on the password which I apparently don't have. It comes up with my name that is used  for my laptop but none of the passwords I tried work.

I would reset the laptop but I can't do that.

Guess I'm really stuck!

Have you installed the Media Feature pack for Win 10 N ?

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48231

When you say it hangs on repairs 5, 12 and 22, it has had to progress from one repair to another so how is it hanging if it still progresses ?

I appreciate 10hrs is a lot longer than it should take but did you perform a dism /restorehealth or a sfc /scannow before running the repair program ?

Does the machine restart okay after the reboot ?

What was the reason why you ran the repair program ?

Perhaps it may be best to run those cmds first after you have booted up with the install media.

Select Command Prompt after you have clicked on Troubleshoot and enter this cmd -

bcdedit |find "osdevice"

For clarity that is a Pipe symbol before find and is the uppercase of \

Then enter chkdsk x: /r using your partition letter instead of the x I have exampled.

You'll be able to see the full report on screen and you are looking for any KBs in bad sectors or any other error message relating to HDD failure.

If that comes back clean then enter this cmd, again using your partition letter instead of my x

dism /image :x:\ /cleanup-image /restorehealth

If that cmd runs then you can ignore the message about the Scratch directory - I've never had that cmd fail to run on my machines.

Follow that cmd with this one, using your partition letter instead of my x

sfc /scannow /offbootdir=x:\ /offwindir=x\Windows

exit (to close the cmd prompt)

Let me know if either of those cmds report anything untoward.

Remove the install media and select shut the machine down and reboot.

If it still fails to boot then reboot with the install media and try your restore points.
