Right off the bat Ive experienced problems after installation. First off, I wasnt able to connect to the internet after restart. A notification said the network adapter wasnt working. Thankfully, my son did some research online and found that the settings had to be all turned off, and then reset after restart. Problem solved.Ive also lost all my favorites I had saved in my email account. Now, I find I cant hear the voice in any video I want to play, whether it be the local news, msn, etc. The speakers are working fine, just not so I can hear the videos. Ive been searching for the speaker settings to check for changes made during the installation, but cant locate. Has anyone run into this problem? If so, what did you do to fix it?

I haven't downloaded 10 yet, primarily because I've heard of too many video/audio issues after installing. it sounds like it might be a driver issue, so here are a couple of links that might help you ( or your son,lol!)...http://www.ibtimes.co.uk/windows-10-how-fix-sound-issues-after-upgrade-1513693...and...http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-10/fix-sound-problems#v1h=tab01. Sure hope this helps, Judy.

My husband installed Windows 10 on his computer (against my advice). We had so many problems, we took it back off after a few days.

I had read about a lot of the problems with Windows 10. It was worse than what I had read. And then his computer crashed.

One warning said, if there is no immediate need to upgrade, one is better off to take a wait-and-see attitude until they get the bugs worked out.
