  1. I managed to find through the microsoft update catalogue. I'll install it and see how I go.
  2. When i say i dont want to reinstall, i should've said that it would be a last resort. Backing up game install (steam, uplay etc and reinstalling BF5) would be the main hassle. maybe i should bring forward the overhaul hardware updates forward. It's just baffling to me this whole situation.
  3. Hi everyone, For the past month, I've been having some significant issues trying to update my PC to the latest version on Windows 10. The current version I have installed is 1803. For a time, the windows updater was telling me that version 1903 was available to download, so i clicked download. The download would get as far as around 88% or so before failing. I can't remember what the error message was. Eventually the windows updater said that a feature update to 1909 was available, so i clicked download to get this update. This however failed like the attempt to install 1903. I attempted to use the Windows Update Assistant that was geared for installing version 1903 at the time. It recognized that i had 1803 and that 1903 was available to download. It went through its download procedure, and got all the way to rebooting several times and getting to 60% complete before the following message appeared “Windows could not configure one or more system components. To install Windows, restart the computer and then restart the installation”. I have tried several times, but the update failed at the same point each time. I gave it a break for a time as I read that version 1909 was being rolled out soon and waited for the Windows Update Assistant to be able to update to 1909. The exact same issue I experienced trying to install 1903 occurred with 1909. I have tried the various solutions both offered by Microsoft from here https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/10164/fix-windows-update-errors and through various google searches, but I am still stuck on 1803. This includes running the update troubleshooter, deleting the software distribution folder contents and rebooting. The built-in update troubleshooter tells me that there aren’t any issues with the update services etc, and now clicking on check for updates tells me that my PC is up to date and that there are no updates available. I have also tried installing the update via an in-place upgrade, but this fails also with an error message saying “0xC1900101 – 0x30018 The installation failed in the FIRST_BOOT phase with an error during SYSPREP_SPECIALIZE operation”. Short of reinstalling Windows (which I don’t want to do), I’m out of ideas at this point, and look to be stuck on 1803. Any help/ideas welcome at this point. Thanks.
  4. stop the icue software and restart it
  5. I too am looking for others to play BFV with. I'll join the server. Note: I am in the Oceania region.
  6. Hi everyone, A weird issue has popped up on my monitor today. On the left side of my monitor, (Acer Predator XB270HU), a pinkish looking flicker has appeared, and then gone away. It first happened when i was still running a Strix 970 several weeks ago or so, but it went away. I am now running a Strix 1070, and the issue popped up again today. I have reinstalled the latest GPU drivers, but am not sure what has caused this issue. I have had the monitor for just over 2 years from new without any issues up until this point. I have the receipts/invoices for the monitors purchase. What is the cause of the weird pink flicker on the screen? A couple of screenshots are attached below. Thanks
  7. Ok, thanks I'll give that a go I'll get around to trying this tomorrow, just shut down for the night.
  8. Yes, I have tried this multiple times to no avail
  9. Recently I've been having trouble copying over some new music onto my ipod touch. My iTunes version is and my iPod's firmware is 9.3.3, both the latest versions available. My issue is that the last 3 albums I've tried to copy over to the iPod have failed to do so. The syncing arrows show up on the iPod showing that some sort of syncing is going on, and iTunes itself shows the 'preparing to update iPod' and the blue progress bar moves along and eventually disappears. It does appear to hang a bit but 'completes nonetheless. But when I check on the iPod itself, the albums do not show up under the artist it should. Viewing what is on the iPod when it is connected to iTunes shows that the albums are "there", but they are greyed out and have circles beside the songs. On top of this issue, iTunes has somehow managed to delete every single album cover artwork which is just mind boggling on its own. Is my only option to wipe the iPod and copy back my entire music collection??? Hope you can help. Thanks Edit: Running Windows 10 64bit
  10. Ah, didn't realise he had a 390. My bad
  11. Why not have both?? throw in some G-SYNC for good measure, maybe IPS as well. Edit: I have the Acer XB270HU
  12. I should hold onto my 970 for a little while longer probably
  13. Maybe update the GPU driver, verify game cache, or reinstall
  14. Probably the same one im talking about. The gun play/sounds were amazing
