my home laptop is about 3 years old. Once bugs get worked out on Win 11, I will buy a new one anyway.

Yep.

The biggest, and really only, issue I have with Windows Update these days is getting it to run flawlessly. Sometimes it might go a month installing silent updates and none of my users even know. Then all of the sudden one little hot fix comes through and gets stuck, Windows Update just stops working and you have to go through cleaning it all it to get it running again.

The chances of this happening on a single machine aren't great but when you're support 8 Windows devices, it can get kind of annoying.

And I should add, when you support 8 windows devices that are used by other people, people that aren't as techy as you and don't truly understand the value of things like data backup and system integrity, you have to be proactive a lot of the times with Windows Update.

It might stop downloading updates but not fire off any error messages but rather just quietly keep trying to update even though it's stuck. My windows users would get months behind on updates if I didn't check once in a while because they don't understand the whole continuous update concept. Hell, even when it's working correctly, they'll ignore reboot prompts for weeks...

.......... I guess you don't pay attention to Microsoft fuck ups.


A) Windows 11 will be a resource hog and they still cant get HDR to work right on Window 10

B) Microsoft has a storied history with fuck ups when it comes to updates/upgrades. Including fucking baking in open back doors to their own software.

C) Window 11 is doomed to fail, its tradition... Every other OS has sucked balls, and bringing back and pushing widgets is fucking retarded.

A isn't necessarily just a Windows issue. HDR in Windows is still rather new, considering it wasn't even included in the initial release of Win10. It has a combination of requirements that many people just can't figure out. You must have a compatible CPU, GPU, monitor, cable, graphics driver, and correct Windows version just to start. Not sure what you mean saying Win11 will be a resource hog.

Concerning B, as I already mentioned the Windows update/upgrade process is 1000x better than it was in prior releases. There's no intentional back door installed, don't be silly.

C is fallacy.

Soooo, this TPM bullshit

Sucks, my MOBO is 'too old' even though all the specs are 10x what Win11 needs, . . . and it even HAS a TPM header to plug in a module. But Asus uses that internally and doesn't vend the module for consumers.

I just added some ram to my dad's laptop. The task manager says that there are two available slots. When I opened it up it only had one slot. There is a space for an additional slot but there aren't anything there. Is that unusual?

Occasionally a laptop will have 1 "slot" which is a RAM module soldered onto the motherboard, along with 1 additional slot that is user accessible. You can only add to the user accessible slot.

Yeah, but this one says that only one slot of two is in use. The slot that I can access already has a stick in it so unless one of the two (potential) sticks is faulty something doesn't add up.


Update: i was reading while i typed this. There is a thread on the hp help site where someone says that models with a certain processor actually only have one slot even though it says it has two. They claim that it is because different models use the same motherboard but have different processors. Who knows?

Either way he went from 4 to 8 so there is still a noticeable improvement.

Thanks to Windows 11, people are scalping TPM2.0 modules as well now.
