Re: Reinstalling Windows 10

I think the problem for me with reinstalling is exactly that you might do it all then find the drive is knackered. One thing to check is the drive connections for power supply and s data at both ends of the cable. These new serial driven drives do seem to be very prone to the plugs coming loose.
However to get things sorted out then you might need to do a disc test and hope it remains OK.
If you just do a fix without knowing what caused the issue, you will just encounter the same problem further down the road in my experience.

Well you can try a reset, to be honest though it may be time to just take your box to a shop and ask them to reformat it for you.
I still am a firm believer that a box should run the system it was designed for for best performance.
So if you ran xp on it it should run that or 7 well you get the picture.
I'd actually be wandering if you either have a virus or something or simply that your hardwre has issues and it may do.

Hello Brian,
I would do this if I could, but I cannot use the system at all in it's current state. It is taking minutes for NVDA to respond to a command which should normally take milliseconds. I just don't know what to do here. I've got no sited assistance to help me which makes this problem that much more frustrating.

Have you considered using the Reset function under the Update & Security Settings, Recovery Pane? It wipes the existing Win10 installation and completely reinstalls the operating system but you can choose whether to keep your files (or at least the vast majority of them) or to start with an entirely clean slate. I never resort to an actual clean reinstallation of Windows 10 from external media until and unless a Reset has not solved the problem.
