Suggested April 2024 Latest Windows 10 And 11 Update Problems And How To Fix Them

Windows 10 and Windows 11 have had their share of problems. The operating system had over 1200 security vulnerabilities just in 2023. Microsoft quickly moves in to fix many of these security holes in the system, so it’s essential to stay up to date. Yet, Windows updates can bring their own problems. This guide shows what to do when an update does more harm than good.

Microsoft has brought out a cumulative, non-optional Windows 11 update, KB5027231 for the month of June. It’s mandatory which means you can’t uninstall it. This was released under Microsoft’s monthly Patch Tuesday security measures (Tuesday, June 13th). It fixes over 78 prior vulnerabilities that were seen in the month of May for the KB5026446 Preview update.

KB5027231 aims to tackle slower boot times, incorrect display of OneDrive storage capacity and issues with CopyFile API, Bluetooth LE Audio, and Touch keyboard. There also have been quality improvements across the entire Windows servicing stack.

The biggest unresolved issue with this update is that it fails to install due to error codes such as 0x80070002 and 0x80248007. Failures can occur for various reasons, including issues with the registry, errors in the Windows filesystem, and problems with the Windows update service.

Going for a cloud-based device reset (while keeping your files) is absolutely the best way to deal with any installation error, but it consumes a lot of time. If you’re going to install an update where there could be system freezes and stuck installations, it’s a good idea to run the Windows 11 Update Troubleshooter first.

    Once the troubleshooter runs, it will check for and fix any issues that were preventing installation. Those problems are mostly down to the security settings, missing or corrupt files, and problems with Service Registration. Other issues could be connected to Windows Network Diagnostics, IsPostback_RC_PendingUpdates, WaaSMedicService, and BITS service.

      The best way to get past Windows 11 installation failures is to download the Windows 11 installation assistant. Once you run the .EXE file, the new update will easily run on your screen.

      One would wonder why is it getting buggier to use Google Chrome on a Windows device? No prizes for guessing as Microsoft has been aggressively promoting Edge browser on their own operating system making it a big hassle to switch the default browser on Windows

      Tip: here’s a list of the best free third-party antivirus programs for Windows users.

      An example of the Moment 3 update: Windows 11 now automatically adds Bluetooth LE audio to laptops that support the latest Bluetooth standard.

      Moment 3 also gets you a new enlarged widgets board with multiple columns, depending on the screen size. It combines weather, news feeds, and personalized content (say from Outlook), in a glamorous look that can be easily minimized from the Widgets menu. There are also animated icons for the widgets, so if the weather is sunny outside, you can catch a sneak peek on the taskbar itself.

      Other taskbar improvements include dedicated icons for USB-based Wi-Fi connections or VPNs.

      KB5026446 update had a few problems due to slower boot times which Microsoft has addressed in 2023-06 cumulative updates (see above.) The best way to deal with any slow boot problem is to go for a disk cleanup where you need to remove the Windows update files followed by a clean boot. It will also take care of the taskbar icons disappearing issue as in the April 2023 update.

      Tip: still not convinced you should update to Windows 11? Here are a few reasons you should make the jump.

      Windows 11 KB5025239 is a cumulative update designed to improve security issues as part of Microsoft’s April 2023 Patch Tuesday security policies. KB5025239 had a taskbar icon disappearing issue in more recent update versions. There are other ways to fix the taskbar issues.

      The best solution we found was to pause/block and defer this update for one or two weeks so that Microsoft can resolve the issue. Refer to the Windows update history as shown in the “Check Your Windows Build” section below.

      The KB5023778 update has officially begun Windows 11’s full-fledged Bing search experience, including its ChatGPT-based Bing Chat interface. Now you can access it directly from the search box and Bing all the way to whatever you need! The search box’s appearance on the taskbar is much lighter than in the past.

      For most Windows 11 users, the KB5023778 update should pass smoothly, but in some cases, the updates may fail to install or becomes stuck at some point. You shouldn’t do a hard reboot, as sometimes just waiting for the update to finish is the best course of action. If the updates fail to install at all, refer the section on “Error code 0x800f0831.”

      Error Code 0x800f0831

      Problem: update fails to install

      This is one of the more common errors that may occur when you try to update Windows.

      Essentially, the above error code means your update has failed, but there are several things you can do to troubleshoot this problem:

      If there’s a conflict with your VPN or proxy server, make sure it’s completely disabled when trying to update Windows. You may even need to uninstall and reinstall the software.

      Scan for corrupt system files.

      For this and other update errors, you can try finding the update you’re trying to install in the Microsoft Update Catalog and install it manually.

      As Windows 10 is slated to retire in two years, it has stopped receiving any new exciting features and updates. The KB5027215 update just brings a few security patches, and officially marks the end of service for Windows 10 21H2. There has been a significant migration to Windows 11 in recent months.

      Some users have reported that the update gets stuck during installation and is very difficult to resolve. There are many efficient ways to deal with a stuck Windows update, and if you’re seeing an infinite reboot loop during a start, there are ways to get around that as well.

      Problems: issues with saving, copying, or attaching files in 32-bit apps

      KB5026435 is an optional update for Windows 10 and mainly brings a new and improved search box similar to Windows 11. You get search highlights and receive toast notifications, which are pop-up windows above desktop apps.

      KB5026435 is generally a very safe update for Windows 10 systems, but if you are using any 32-bit apps, such as 32-bit versions of Microsoft Office, you may run into issues trying to copy the files properly. You may then have to reinstall the application to its 64-bit version, restart the device, and the issue should not affect you. KB5026435 also marks the end of life for Windows 10, version 20H2 .

      [Fixed] Error 0x80070422

      Problem: updates fail to install properly

      The 0x80070422 bug is one of the oldest update errors in Windows, and it can still affect some Windows 10 devices while installing updates. It’s often accompanied by other types of messages, such as “Windows update is disabled.” The current approach to solving this problem is to disable IPv6 from Wi-Fi Properties.

      First, verify that your Windows Update service is disabled.

            Navigate to “Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)” and disable it.

              If you’re still having issues due to the error code, enter the Command Prompt in admin mode and the following commands one after another.

              net stop wuauserv net stop cryptSvc net stop bits net stop msiserver

                Restart your device, then check your Wi-Fi connection again. The issues due to 0x80070422 should be fixed.

                If the problem you’ve encountered with a new Windows update is that the install stops at a certain percentage, or more generally, that it’s failing to install altogether, try installing the update from PowerShell.

                Open PowerShell as administrator by typing it into the Start menu search.

                In PowerShell, use this command:



                Module PSWindowsUpdate

                  It may ask you to install and import the NuGet provider. Press “Y” for Yes and let it install the package.

                    You may get a warning that you are installing the modules from an untrusted repository. Type “A” to allow all the changes.

                      Check for the latest Windows updates by typing the following into PowerShell:




                        Once you’ve confirmed that there are updates to install, type the following command. You may further be asked if you want to perform this action, to which you must type “A” to finalize.




                          Wait for the broken Windows updates to heal themselves. They will automatically execute in the PowerShell window.

                          Tip: learn about these essential PowerShell commands you need to know.

                          These updates are still pretty stable, though, and may be worth a shot if a recent update has broken something in Windows.

                          You can uninstall smaller Windows updates (to roll back builds, see the next section) by doing the following:

                            Good to know: faced with the error “Not enough disk space for Windows update”? Our dedicated post shows you how to get around it.

                            How to Roll Back Windows Builds

                            After every major update, Windows gives you a 10-day window to roll back to a previous version. It’s a useful feature and should give you enough time to judge whether you have a problematic update. Of course, this won’t recover your files if Windows deletes them, but at least you’ll be on a more stable version of the OS.

                            Below “Reset this PC,” you should see the option to “Go back” to the previous version of Windows.

                              Check Your Windows Build

                              Before looking into rolling back and fixing broken Windows updates, you need to check the build of Windows you’re currently using to confirm which issues are affecting you.

                                  You will also find “Definition Updates,” which are security intelligence updates related to Microsoft Defender.

                                    At the bottom of the list, you may find “Other Updates” concerning programs such as the Windows Malicious Software Removal tool, Intelligence updates, and security patches.

                                    Another thing you can do to avoid getting the above update problems and more is to take over control when Windows updates. This way, you can hold off getting updates the moment Microsoft rolls them out, monitor the news for a bit to see if any major errors crop up, then manually do the update yourself.

                                    Tip: curious about Windows 11 but don’t want to renounce Windows 10 yet? Here’s how to try Microsoft’s latest OS version without nuking the old one.

                                    If you want to block Windows updates completely for an indefinite time, disable the main Windows Update service through Registry Editor.




                                      Edit and change its “Value data” to “4.”

                                        Reboot your PC, then go to the “Services” window by using the Search function in Windows.

                                        You can disable the Windows Update service in the same window, as shown above.

                                        Few things on PC are more frustrating than an update – ostensibly to improve performance – borking your system, but unfortunately, Microsoft still has work to do in this respect. Other teething issues with Windows include the Start menu search not working, Microsoft Store not working, and a malfunctioning microphone. We can help you with these, too!

                                        Problems With The Samsung Galaxy S20 Series And How To Fix Them

                                        If you want to make sure that an app keeps running in the background, you can “lock” the app. Open the app. Then launch the Recent Apps page. Tap the app icon and select “keep open for quick launching.” Once done, you can remove it by tapping on the lock icon at the bottom right of the app on the Recents page.

                                        Problem #2 — The refresh rate keeps changing

                                        The Samsung Galaxy S20 series of phones come with impressive 120Hz displays. Something to keep in mind is that not every app supports that high refresh rate though. In this case, the phone automatically switches back and forth between 120Hz and 60Hz (if you have 120Hz selected as default).

                                        The refresh rate will also drop to 60Hz if the device temperature exceeds 42 degrees Celsius (107.6 F). You might find this to be the case after taking a lot of pictures, prolonged gaming sessions, and other processor-intensive activities. Things will be fine once the temperature drops below that threshold. The refresh rate will also drop once the battery level goes below 5%.

                                        Some users have come across an unfortunate bug as well, where the switch doesn’t happen automatically. In most cases, the only option is to go into the display settings and manually set the refresh rate to 120Hz. A software update issued by Samsung addresses this problem, so make sure that you keep the phone updated.

                                        Problem #3 — Problems with Smart Unlock

                                        Some users find that despite having Smart Unlock set up through the Settings menu, the feature doesn’t seem to work most of the time with the location set accurately. This problem occurs when using Smart Unlock based on location, like a home or office.

                                        Potential solutions:

                                        For some, this problem might have been related to the rampant GPS connection issues the Samsung Galaxy S20 devices faced. This has since been fixed with a software update, so the Smart Unlock feature might work as expected.

                                        You might be running into Android Auto connection issues if you used the Smart Switch feature to set up your new phone. If that’s the case, find the app in the Google Play Store, uninstall it, and download it again.

                                        This might also be a hardware problem if you find frequent disconnections. Check the cable that you’re using in the car and replace it if needed.

                                        An app might be causing this problem. Boot the phone into Safe Mode (you can find the instructions on how to do so below) and check if the issue persists. If it doesn’t, the cause is a rogue app. Uninstall the most recently updated or installed apps and see if the phone works as expected.

                                        You can also try wiping the cache partition. The instructions are in the guide below.

                                        Software updates have fixed this problem for many. If you’re still coming across it though, getting a replacement is probably the best option.

                                        First, make sure that the proper settings are enabled. Go to Settings, search for Edge Lighting, and select Choose Apps. Go through the list and pick the apps you want to receive notifications for. Only the Messages app is selected by default.

                                        Adjusting the Duration slider seems to have worked for a few users. If it is set to max, change to a middle setting, and edge lighting should start to work as expected.

                                        Others are seeing this problem because they’ve turned off animations in the Developer Options. If you’ve done so, set the animations to at least 0.5x.

                                        Until a software update is available to fix this issue, a third-party app might help. Try Edge Lighting+ in the Samsung Good Lock Suite or AODNotify which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store.

                                        Problems where the only option is to wait for a software update or get a replacement

                                        A hardware issue will require a replacement. Most problems are software-related though. If a workaround isn’t available, an upcoming software update will likely address it. Some major bugs like the green tint problem found with the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra and GPS issues have already been fixed for most users.

                                        Wi-Fi randomly slows down — Some users have found that the internet speed, when connected through Wi-Fi, seems to slow down significantly after a few minutes. Toggling the Wi-Fi setting on the phone off and on helps, but only for some time. Keep in mind that you will notice some throttling if the phone overheats, but this problem is mostly unrelated.

                                        Microphone problems — A few users have reported issues with the microphone seemingly cutting in and out when using a chat app and during a phone call. This is likely a hardware problem, and the best option is to get a replacement.

                                        Overheating — There have been numerous reports of the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra overheating (a problem for many Samsung phones), and this seems to affect the Exynos version in particular.

                                        Slow-motion video lagging: Quite a few users are facing issues when trying to record slow-motion video. The video ends up looking choppy and has missing frames. This problem seems to affect the Exynos versions of the Galaxy S20 series, and some Galaxy S21 users are reporting the same.

                                        One UI 4/Android 12 problems

                                        Adamya Sharma / Android Authority

                                        The software update for One UI 4/Android 12 started rolling out to the Samsung Galaxy S20 series in January 2023. Unfortunately, it brought with it a slew of new bugs and issues for the phones. Here’s a roundup of some of the common Galaxy S20 One UI 4 problems that users have come across and those that have been fixed already.

                                        Home and back buttons not working: Galaxy S20 owners are complaining about how a recent update has broken the home and back buttons. A workaround that has worked for some is to go to the navigation settings and change it to gesture navigation. Restart the phone and go back to button navigation. In more extreme cases, users say that the only option is to perform a factory reset.

                                        Videos not playing: Some users say that videos aren’t playing on their phones, whether through the browser app or YouTube. Samsung hasn’t acknowledged this problem yet, and the only workaround, for now, is to restart the phone. This problem appeared after the March 2023 One UI 4 update.

                                        A green or purple line on the screen: Samsung Galaxy S20 Plus users report a green or purple line down the screen since the One UI 4 update. There is no fix or workaround available for this problem.

                                        Auto-rotate not working: Users say that the February 2023 security patch update has broken the auto-rotate function on the phone, and standard troubleshooting doesn’t seem to help.

                                        Gmail and VPN apps not working with Microsoft Intune: Samsung has provided a solution that Microsoft is currently checking. Until then, Microsoft has listed potential workarounds for this problem that has worked for many users.

                                        Fixed problems

                                        The first software update in December 2023 included a lot of bug fixes. Samsung fixed problems like fingerprint authentication issues, display brightness problems, rapid battery drain, improved connection with Windows, and Galaxy Watch 4 compatibility problems, to name a few.

                                        Samsung fixed the green screen bug when using the camera in portrait mode with the January 2023 update.

                                        A February 2023 update addressed battery drain issues again. Users say that the phone’s battery life has improved significantly since the update.

                                        OpenGL emulations are now working as expected following an update in February 2023.

                                        Tap on the toggle next to “Fast charging” to enable the feature.

                                        Do the same to enable “Super fast charging” as well.

                                        If the screen is responsive:

                                        Let’s now see them in detail.

                                        1] Run Windows Update Troubleshooter

                                        Microsoft Windows comes with various types of troubleshooting tools that can be used to fix various kinds of problems. When you encounter a Windows Update error, you should run the Windows Update troubleshooter first. You can do this by following these steps:

                                        For Windows 11

                                        Open the Windows Settings. For quick access to the Settings app, use the Windows+I keyboard shortcut.

                                        On the left side of the screen select System.

                                        When the troubleshooting process is complete, the problem might be resolved.

                                        For Windows 10

                                        Launch the Windows Settings.

                                        Once you have done this, check if the issue persists.

                                        2] Delete the Temporary Files

                                        If you experience trouble installing Windows updates, you can clear your temporary files and cache. After clearing them, restart your computer and check if it works.

                                        3] Run SFC and DISM

                                        The System File Checker (SFC) is a tool that users can use to detect and restore corrupt system files. If you’re experiencing this problem, it seems some of the files needed for Windows Update are damaged, altered, or missing. In order to restore missing or corrupt system files, you can use System File Checker, followed by Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM).

                                        Follow the below instructions to run SFC and DISM:

                                        Run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

                                        Type in sfc /scannow and press Enter.

                                        Wait a few minutes for the procedure to complete. While the system is scanning the code, you can perform any other task you wish.

                                        Once it completes the scanning process, restart your computer to see if it works.

                                        If that doesn’t resolve the problem, run DISM to repair the corrupted Windows Update files.

                                        Copy and paste the following command into the elevated Command Prompt window and press the Enter key:

                                        DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth

                                        Once this is done, restart your computer and the problem should be resolved.

                                        However, if your Windows Update client is already broken, you will be prompted to use a running Windows installation as the repair source or use a Windows side-by-side folder from a network share, as the source of the files.

                                        You will then be required to run the following command instead:

                                        DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:C:RepairSourceWindows /LimitAccess

                                        Here you have to replace the C:RepairSourceWindows placeholder with the location of your repair source.

                                        Once the process is complete, DISM will create a log file in %windir%/Logs/CBS/CBS.log and capture any issues that the tool finds or fixes.

                                        Close the command prompt, and then run Windows Update again and see it has helped.

                                        4] Reset Windows Update Components

                                        This problem can also happen if some type of corruption occurs in your system files. Hence, if you are still experiencing a problem after running the SFC and DISM utilities, you can reset the Windows Update Components and see if it works. Here is a guide to help you do this:

                                        The first thing you need to do is run the Command Prompt as an administrator.

                                        To do so, press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.

                                        In the text field, type in cmd and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter keyboard shortcut.

                                        Once it opens the Command Prompt, type the following commands. After typing each command, press Enter:

                                        net stop bits net stop wuauserv net stop appidsvc net stop cryptsvc

                                        In this case, the Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), Windows Update service, and Cryptographic service will stop working.

                                        It is now time to reset Windows Update components by deleting all qmgr*.dat files from your computer.

                                        To do this, type the below command line in the command prompt and hit enter.

                                        Del "%ALLUSERSPROFILE%Application DataMicrosoftNetworkDownloaderqmgr*.dat"

                                        Afterward, type Y on your keyboard to confirm the deletion.

                                        Next, you should rename the SoftwareDistribution and catroot2 folders.

                                        To do this, run the following commands in the command prompt window. Don’t forget to press Enter after typing each command.

                                        Ren %systemroot%SoftwareDistribution SoftwareDistribution.bak Ren %systemroot%system32catroot2 catroot2.bak

                                        After you have done this, you need to reset both BITS and Windows Update services to their default settings.

                                        To do this, type the below commands in the elevated command prompt window:


                                        To execute the commands, press Enter after each one.

                                        In the command prompt window, type the following code to move to the System32 directory. Press Enter to continue.

                                        cd /d %windir%system32

                                        Type the following commands, and be sure to hit enter after each command.

                                        regsvr32.exe atl.dll regsvr32.exe urlmon.dll regsvr32.exe mshtml.dll regsvr32.exe shdocvw.dll regsvr32.exe browseui.dll regsvr32.exe jscript.dll regsvr32.exe vbscript.dll regsvr32.exe scrrun.dll regsvr32.exe msxml.dll regsvr32.exe msxml3.dll regsvr32.exe msxml6.dll regsvr32.exe actxprxy.dll regsvr32.exe softpub.dll regsvr32.exe wintrust.dll regsvr32.exe dssenh.dll regsvr32.exe rsaenh.dll regsvr32.exe gpkcsp.dll regsvr32.exe sccbase.dll regsvr32.exe slbcsp.dll regsvr32.exe cryptdlg.dll regsvr32.exe oleaut32.dll regsvr32.exe ole32.dll regsvr32.exe shell32.dll regsvr32.exe initpki.dll regsvr32.exe wuapi.dll regsvr32.exe wuaueng.dll regsvr32.exe wuaueng1.dll regsvr32.exe wucltui.dll regsvr32.exe wups.dll regsvr32.exe wups2.dll regsvr32.exe wuweb.dll regsvr32.exe qmgr.dll regsvr32.exe qmgrprxy.dll regsvr32.exe wucltux.dll regsvr32.exe muweb.dll regsvr32.exe wuwebv.dll

                                        Running the above commands will re-register all the respective BITS files and Windows Update related DLL files

                                        Your next step should be to reset the network configurations that may have contributed to the problematic error.

                                        In order to do that, run the below commands:

                                        netsh winsock reset netsh winsock reset proxy

                                        After you have done this, it’s time to restart the services you stopped earlier, such as Background Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS), Windows Update, and Cryptography.

                                        For this, open the Command Prompt and run the below command line. You must press Enter after each command.

                                        net start bits net start wuauserv net start appidsvc net start cryptsvc

                                        Now close the Command Prompt window and restart your computer.

                                        When your PC starts, go to Windows Updates and see if you can install the pending updates

                                        5] Manually download and install updates

                                        When none of the above solutions resolve the problem, you can try downloading and installing the update manually from the Microsoft Update Catalog and see if that helps.

                                        How do I fix the Windows Update assistant error?

                                        In case you’re having issues with Windows Update Assistant on your computer, you can use the following steps to fix the issue. Restart the Windows Update Service. Run the Windows Update troubleshooter. Temporarily turn off the Third-Party Antivirus program and Windows Defender. Clean up the update cache.

                                        What does Windows Update do?

                                        Windows Update keeps the operating system and other Microsoft programs updated. The security patches and feature upgrades provided by Microsoft prevent malware attacks and other threats.

                                        If you have tried all the above fixes but your display is still showing a black screen, the problem might be associated with your display driver. We suggest you update your display driver.

                                        The benefits include the ability to do live broadcasts or webcasts, so you need to deliver it from a specialized streaming server.

                                        Video streaming problems may occur due to several factors including Internet speed and the type of media player you’re using.

                                        Why is my streaming not working?

                                        If you’re experiencing video streaming problems in Windows, there are a few checks you need to consider before troubleshooting, including:

                                        If your Internet network connectivity is constantly fluctuating, you may have video streaming problems such as slow and inconstant buffering.

                                        However, if your Internet connection works fine but you still have video streaming issues, you need to check your media player, and change the buffer settings because each player has its own buffer settings.

                                        Some of the most common video file formats used when creating video streams include Windows Media, Quicktime, MPEG-4, Adobe Flash, and RealMedia.

                                        Ensure you check your wireless network card, the version driver you’re using, and the router model and firmware because you may have to upgrade the drivers, the router, and the firmware in some cases.

                                        Why is my Internet fast but streaming slow?

                                        Slow Internet speed on Windows 11 or any other operating system is a common problem, and in most cases, it’s related to your ISP or network hardware.

                                        However, many reported issues with streaming services, and according to users, Twitch keeps buffering even if their connection is fast.

                                        This isn’t the only service affected by this issue, and many reported Disney Plus buffering issues, but luckily, there are ways to fix this problem.

                                        How do I fix video streaming issues on Windows 10?

                                        Before we start making major changes, here are a few quick things to try:

                                        Check for any pending Windows updates and install them. An up-to-date OS is imperative for faster performance.

                                        Disable the antivirus and firewall, both built-in and third-party, temporarily and check whether the streaming issues in Windows 10 are eliminated. If yes, we recommend you switch to a more reliable and effective antivirus solution.

                                        If none work, move the solutions listed next.

                                        1. Run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter

                                        If you’re experiencing problems with video streaming, then run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter to resolve the issue.

                                        This checks for commonly occurring issues and ensures any new device or hardware is correctly installed on your computer.

                                        Follow the instructions to run the Hardware and Devices troubleshooter.  The troubleshooter will begin detecting any issues that may be causing video streaming not to work as it should.

                                        Hopefully, the troubleshooter will also optimize Windows 10 for streaming video and you will be able to enjoy your video.

                                        2. Update display drivers 2.1 Start your PC in Safe Mode

                                        In order to update display drivers, you need to start your computer on Safe Mode, then uninstall your current display adapter, and finally check for driver updates.

                                        Safe mode starts up your computer with limited files and drivers, but Windows will still run. To know whether you’re on Safe mode, you’ll see the words at the corners of your screen.

                                        If the video streaming problem isn’t there while in Safe Mode, then your default settings and basic drivers are not contributing to the issue.

                                        2.2 Use the Device Manager

                                        If you have many display adapters, you need to disable the added display adapter by performing the steps above.

                                        If this doesn’t fix the video streaming problems, do the following:

                                        Restart in Safe Mode

                                        Re-enable the added display adapter

                                        Disable the other adapter

                                        Once you’re through and the video streaming issue is sorted, exit safe mode so you can get your computer back to normal mode.

                                        2.3 Exit Safe Mode

                                        Updating drivers manually is very annoying and could cause permanent damage to your PC by downloading and installing the wrong driver versions.

                                        We strongly recommend using a professional driver updater tool to do it automatically.

                                        Outbyte Driver Updater keeps your system running smoothly by upgrading its drivers. This utility analyzes your system for outdated drivers.

                                        3. Disable Adaptive brightness

                                        Does the video streaming issue persist? Try the next solution if this didn’t help.

                                        4. Update graphics card drivers

                                        Expert tip:

                                        4. Choose Search automatically for drivers.

                                        5. If the system finds a new driver, it will install it.

                                        If you don’t want to complicate yourself with this task, there is an excellent tool called Outbyte Driver Updater that updates your drivers automatically.

                                        5. Uninstall and Install graphics card drivers

                                        If your videos are not streaming or playing in Microsoft Edge, follow the steps above to uninstall and reinstall graphics card drivers.

                                        Check if your video streaming function works again, and if not, try the next solution.

                                        6. Install drivers in compatibility mode 7. Perform a clean boot

                                        Performing a clean boot for your computer reduces conflicts related to software that can bring up the root causes of video streaming failure.

                                        These conflicts can be caused by applications and services that start up and run in the background whenever you start Windows normally.

                                        In order to successfully perform a clean boot on Windows 10, you have to be logged on as the administrator.

                                        You will have a clean boot environment after all these steps are carefully followed, after which you can try and check if the video streaming problem is gone.

                                        If you want to know how to add or remove startup apps on Windows 10, check out this simple guide.

                                        8. Run the Video Playback Troubleshooter

                                        The Video Playback troubleshooter tool is built-in on Windows 10 operating system so as to check and resolve any issues you may have.

                                        9. Clear browsing data

                                        We have shown you how to clear the browsing data in Edge, but the process is very similar in other browsers as well. Check if the video streaming issue persists or try the next solution.

                                        10. Reset your browser

                                        If you tried video streaming on a different browser and it worked, then the problem may be due to a corrupt add-on or compatibility issues of the website with Microsoft Edge.

                                        In this case, you can reset the browser, but it is good to note that this feature might reset the security or privacy settings you added to your list of Trusted Sites.

                                        It may also reset any parental control settings, so it is recommended you note the sites before resetting Explorer or Edge, then re-enable add-ons.

                                        11. Change buffer settings in Windows Media Player app

                                        Windows Media Player is no longer the default video-playing app in Windows, but if you’re still using it, this solution will help you fix the Microsoft Edge streaming video problems.

                                        How can I fix streaming problems on Windows 11?

                                        Although Windows 11 has a different design and some new and improved features, it’s not all so different from Windows 10.

                                        That is why all the solutions we outlined above in this guide will also work for the new OS.

                                        Why do streaming videos keep buffering?

                                        Buffering is downloading the video before the player plays it back, whether it’s a separate one or embedded one in the browser.

                                        It does that all the time, but when the player can’t download the video faster than it plays is back, we actually call this effect buffering.

                                        There are many reasons for this problem, but as you have seen from our guide, it usually comes from a bad or unstable Internet connection.

                                        We hope these solutions helped resolve the video streaming issue on your computer.

                                        Nonetheless, even though we can expect a lot from Windows 10, there’s still an abundance of issues that need to be addressed.
