Thank you for the replies.

I am now on Windows 10 pro 1809.

There was no issue with the update, it just took a little while.

Regards John

Wow, I have two machines here, both from 2012, and they are both on Windows
10 V1809.

I had to update the BIOS, that's all.

Mind you, they were built by a local computer shop.

I now have SSD drives in both of them, and they are humming along nicely.

All the best

Steve

Hi Steve,

I tried that route with HP, and they said my BIOS was as up to date as it
could be.  I had no choice.

Hi George,

It's not necessarily new hardware, my engineer tells me that often a BIOS
update will solve it.

All the best

Hi John,

When you run Windows Update, does it give you any indication that updates
are available?

You should at least be able to apply whatever updates are offered.  Once
applied, check the version again and see if it has changed.  If not, check
for updates again, and if nothing more is listed and you are still at 1803,
then I suspect you may need to consider new hardware.

Hello George and Steve,

I am currently on release 1803.
I guess it wants me to update to 1809.
?
So, the question now is do I update to this or wait until the April update

The following was published by Microsoft only this month. The 6th March to
be precise.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/whats-new/whats-new-windows-10-vers
ion-1809

To find out what version you currently have, right click on Start, and
select "System", and go down to "Windows Specifications" where it will
display a version number.

Be aware that this will not install on some not so old hardware, so don't be
surprised if you find you are on Version 1803, and Check for Updates says
there are no upgrades.  This is due to a security requirement within the
hardware itself.

I had to replace an otherwise good working HP Pro 3400 Series MT for this
very reason.

Hi John,

I thought that comes out in April.  Is it out now?

All the best

Hello list,

I recall that a while ago there was a new release of Windows 10 which needed
to be rolled out and for data to be recovered.

Is it safe to install the latest release of windows 10 while running NVDA?


Regards John
