Compatibility problems on Windows 10 Home Premium 64 & 32 bit

    Question

  • I have 4 versions of Windows 10. The 64-bit Professional is fine: no problems. When I change to the 64 or 32 bit Home Premium platforms (on the same PC through an Icy Dock system) I have problems! Every time I open Settings & then try to open anything else, eg system tools or files, the screen freezes up. The mouse pointer still works, but nothing else. I am now certain that it is a compatibility problem with my G-force 970 Nvidia adapter & all of the Home Premium platforms (but NOT with the Professional platform). These Windows 10 platforms are all upgrades from previous Windows 7 or 8.1 versions. Can you find out why this happens?

    Also, when I install a clean version of Windows 10-64 Home Premium from the disc, every time a driver for the Nivia 970 is installed & the PC reboots, the screen locks! No desktop icons, just the taskbar icons. No mouse or keyboard either! At the moment, I am keeping the Nvidia adapter uninstalled through the Device Manager, but this will obviously not fix what is a serious problem

  • Hello,

    I'd ask the system manufacturer.

    You could also ask in the Windows 10 forum on Microsoft Community.

    As the Microsoft Community is on a different platform, we cannot move the question for you.

    As it's off-topic here, I am moving the question to the Where is the forum for... forum.
