Windows 10 Windows Update and Fast Startup



Thread starter #1
My computer is incompatible the the fast startup option in windows. I don't know exactly what causes it, but if the option is enabled and the computer restarted, the sound card does not function at all, and the video and operating system lags for several seconds every time an action is performed. This is solved by turning off the option in power settings and restarting again.

The problem, however, is every so often, typically after an update, the fast startup option is turned back on without my knowledge or input. This is incredibly frustrating, as the feature is completely useless to me, and worse than that, negatively effects my computer.
