Fresh start on Windows 10? Help

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm feel like I'm having problems with my disk drive. The drive is my SSD where my Windows and all other apps like skype and my games are installed. Recently, I've been having problems with some apps having problems starting up and updating, but updating fine when installing on my other drive. I'm not sure if my drive is failing because there isn't any errors when scanning the disk. So i want to try a clean restart of my computer but I'm not sure which one would be better. While I do want the cleanest of reinstallation, "Fresh start" says that it will not include certain apps that came with the computer such as certain NVidia apps like PhysX software and 3D software as well as Audio software from Realtek, some Intel software as well as ASUS System Updater, (software where I have never downloaded as it all came with the computer, but they sound important). Would just resetting my PC be enough or is it better to do a Fresh start?

you're better off with a fresh stat, none of the bloat of realtek software or asus system updater. you can get nvidia stuff from nvidia gameready something.


Ryzen 5 3600 stock | 2x16GB C13 3200MHz (AFR) | Radeon VII | ASUS Prime X570-P | 6TB WD Gold (128MB Cache, 2017)

Samsung 850 EVO 240 GB 

138 is a good number.

But aren't they important? Since I think realtek is my main software for sound output. And some of the intel software seems to be for my wireless/bluetooth as well as for framework

You can manually reinstall them later on (I think the realtek one is just for the EQ and the UI for adjusting stuff, but there will be sound output as Windows 10 should reinstall all the drivers neccessary for the PC to function normally)

 

You can even have a GPU installed without downloading drivers from Nvidia, Windows 10 fetches them automagically

 

 

Make a note of the software that you need to install for it to work though, relying on Windows 10 finding drivers is not good.

You should be ok with just Windows loading in the drivers itself. You just won't have the apps to tweak anything, but your sound and other stuff should still work.
