    Upon taking and installing the FALL CREATOR Update, my Dell laptop ends up with instability. The Intel video driver would unpredictably turn off, create havoc and often lock up the PC so that I could only use the power switch to turn it off and reboot. So I finally reverted back to the installation just prior to that Fall Creator Update and tried to take the update again. It kept failing to install altogether!

    After countless hours reading the posts on MS about this and having no success, I bumped into the msconfig discussion and I realized my system was set to Selective Boot. Believe me when I tell you I carefully read and followed the instructions on how to get back to Normal Boot. Each time, I’d rerun msconfig only to find it was still in Selective Boot. But I tried setting it one more time and then I used the Windows 10 Update Assistant to install the Fall Creator Update, which repeatedly failed when trying to Update through the SETTINGS/UPDATE process.

    I cannot explain WHY the manual install of the UPDATE finally DID proceed after the last attempt to use msconfig to get back to Normal Boot, but somehow it DID proceed and it now is installed. But lo and behold, how again I have the video driver going unpredictably unstable again at times, only now it doesn’t lock up my pc, it just automatically reboots (sometimes more than once) until it gets back to the Intel driver and stays stable long enough for me to work.

    As of now msconfig is STILL in the SELECTIVE BOOT mode and as I write this, the system is staying stable and has the Intel video driver running. But if history is any indication, this stability is only temporary and I’m seizing the moment while it’s working to compose this message and to PLEA FOR SUPPORT.

    Please don’t just repost the same msconfig steps and don’t assume your audience is not smart enough to read carefully and follow each step. I’ve done that. There’s something that’s trying to load after about a minute that creates the video driver instability when it occurs. I’d like some specific help on how to find the cause and fix it; hopefully without having to do a fresh install. Of course, I do have the Creator Update files now because I used them to do the Manual Update.
