KB4503293 reported bugs

Microsoft rolled out a new series of Patch Tuesday cumulative updates to all Windows 10 versions. These updates fixed some known issues introduced by the previous builds.

Soon after Microsoft pushed KB4503293, Windows 10 users started to complain about booting issues on Microsoft’s forums. At the time of writing this article, there is no official workaround for this bug.

Therefore, if you have not installed the update yet, it is better to pause the updates for a few days. Otherwise, you may experience some serious issues after installing KB4503293.

These are not the only issues that users complained about. Keep in mind that KB4503293 may also break Windows Sandbox for some.

– 4-long-beep cycle.
– No display, keyboard and mouse sign.
– Removal of RAMs and GPU board did not change status.

BUT yesterday after 2019-06 Cumulative Update KB4503293.. the change in brightness NO LONGER adjusts when the machine is plugged or not plugged in.

Actually, this is not a new issue as such problems existed in previous builds as well. The tech giant released the necessary patches to fix the bug at that time.

We’re sure Microsoft is working on fixing these issues. However, you need to wait a few more days until the company releases the hotfixes.
