Well.. did they ever explain why the last big update KILLED my (and many others) computers?

NO.. oops.. sorry you have to lose everything and you need to buy a new laptop.

Killed?  Fried the Motherboard? 

Won't turn on at all??

Does it at least boot/load the BIOS?

Or does the power light come on and you just get a Black Screen?

It may not be dead as you think.

Laptop. Won't even boot up. Tried everything.. Last thing says. Can't be repaired.

I lost everything. Just have a big dumb dead paperweight. Disgusting.

But it turns on? If it doesn't turn on, it could be your Power Supply, which is built to be sacrificial to avoid a complete and catastrophic fail of your entire Device.

By everything, do you mean you tried Booting from a Bootable Flash Drive?

What last thing says can't be repaired?

Hard to believe that each and every piece of hardware on your Device failed simultaneously.

yes, it turns on.

Between what I have read here from you, and google. It just won't boot up. Husband did it all and researched. Have a flash drive, and had used that to copy MC to my new laptop before this happened. But...... not foreseeing this sh*t to happen.. that's it. Transferred MC to new laptop.

Then------ after it died ( I call it dead because it is to me.. ) he tried some other things, but just can't get it. Copied some pics and other things I had from my phone but that's about it.... It's a shame, because it's only about 5-6 yrs old and shouldn't just DIE like that from an update that is supposed to make it better!!!!!!!

I'm going now....... Every time I think about it, I get upset.. and I don't want to take it out here...

I just googled about Windows update version 1903 and this is what I saw 


Window 10 PC  users with under 32 GB Storage? NO 1903 update for you, says Microsoft

I read a few articles on this 32G Hard Drive requirement.  It is my understanding that only 7ish G will actually be usurped & dedicated for the smooth Install of 1903 and future Build Updates.

They also state that if you already have 1809, you should be be able to Install 1903 (if you have 32G of Free Space, or maybe just 7ish G freed up)

My two little Lenovo Thinkpads only have 200G Hard Drives each, and 1809 installed without a hitch on both.  Each has approx. 50G Free Space at the moment, which exceeds the M$ criteria. I think I'll be fine, but will move more stuff to external storage, maybe an extra 30G or so each.

I reckon most of y'all have MUCH bigger Hard Drives that I, so, just to be safe, move your stuff and take a deep breath.  Make sure you disconnect (safely) your external storage before the Update hits in May.

Fingers, legs and eyes crossed (I really need an Emoji for that)

ANOTHER Cumulative for Win 10 1809 was released about an hour or so ago.

Supposedly still had the bugs from the LAST Cumulative Update, but I bit the bullet anyway and Installed on ONE of my Devices.  Backed up EVERYTHING first.

NO PROBLEM for me.  WHEW!!!

Will still back up EVERYTHING on the other 2 Devices, just in case.
