It seems more and more users are complaining about driver problems they’re experiencing after upgrading to Windows 10 version 1607, also known as Windows 10 Anniversary Update.
According to a user that owns an HP Envy Phoenix 810-430qe, he noticed that Windows 10 started updating drivers he manually installed during the upgrade process. He said the only way to fix this was to perform a clean install with the new .ISO release while offline and, of course, to disable automatic driver updates once Windows 10 is installed. However, he doesn’t want to do this because for him, it will be a huge hassle.
However, someone replied saying that he just tried to install the Windows 10 Anniversary Update but failed to finish. Instead, he installed it from a USB stick and while it worked, it messed the drivers on his computer as well. The same user said that he even noticed some error messages in the notification panel and once he performed a “cold” restart (when the power to the system is physically turned off and back on again), all drivers were back and working without any problems.
In other words, if you own a computer that was just updated to Windows 10 version 1607 and you have the same issues, try doing a “cold” restart and see if that fixes the problem. If not, you will either have to wait for an update to be released by Microsoft that patches it up or do a clean install, stay offline during the installation process and disable the “automatic drivers update” feature.
