    Sometimes a simple system restore will fix the issue.. 


    Try windows x

    click on power shell admin or command prompt admin 

    type rstrui

    chose an earlier date on which your computer was working fine  

    click on next, finish, yes

    It will restore your computer to an earlier date 

    if you get an message - system restore not completed - click on close 

    It will show you all the icons..

    Try and check whether it is working now ..


    If it is still not working then we have to do a refresh and reset


    If you would like to do a refresh and reset follow the steps given below


    click on start - settings - update and security - recovery - reset this pc - get started 


    or 


    on start - type here to search - type reset this pc - click on reset this pc on the top - click on get started 


    It will show you keep my files and remove everything

    chose keep my files 

    chose the account - type the password - click on local reinstall - click on reset 

    It will be in progress.. 

    login to computer and start using the computer. 

    If it is still not working 


    click on start - settings - update and security - recovery - reset this pc - get started 

    chose remove everything 

    click on local reinstall - just remove my files - click on reset

    It will be in progress


    Note:


    If you do refresh ( keep my files ) - all your personal files like pictures, music , documents , videos will still be intact.  Only the applications will be lost


    If you do reset ( remove everything ) - you are doing a factory default.  It will become like a day one computer.  It will wipe out everything and take your computer to day one like a new computer. 



    You can also do the recovery in an alternative way..



    There are two alt keys on the keyboard. If you look at the bottom row of keyboard you can see the one on the left side of space bar and the other on the right side of space bar. The alt key on the right side will be looking like alt, alt gr or alt car. Turn off the computer. Hold the alt key on the left and tap f10 continuously.  It will go to repair mode. It will show you chose an option, continue, troubleshoot.  If it is not going to repair mode, turn off the computer. Turn on the computer. Hold the right alt key ( alt gr or alt car or alt ) and then tap f10 continuously. It will go to chose an option continue and troubleshoot..


    It will show you chose an option, continue, troubleshoot

    Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc

    click on keep my files ( only applications will be lost )  chose your account and type your password  - click on local reinstall - click on reset

    It will be in progress 


    If the keep my files option is not working 


    Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc – click on remove everything – click on local reinstall – just remove my files – click on reset 

    It will reinstall windows. 


    If the just remove my files is not working.. 


    Go to troubleshoot - click on reset this pc – click on remove everything – click on local reinstall – Fully clean the drive – click on reset 

    It will reinstall windows. 


    Note: You can also go to chose an option , continue , troubleshoot by holding the alt key + tapping f10 or alt gr + tapping f10 on the keyboard while turning on the computer.  Once you see the troubleshoot option, you can stop tapping the f10 and stop holding the alt key.  Then you can try the keep my files and remove everything ( just remove by files and fully clean the drive ) by following the steps which was mentioned above.

    Is it better to do a local install since I upgraded from Windows 10 or should I use the Cloud Download option (Im also connected via ethernet connection if it is relevant)? And does Cloud download install does basically the same of fresh install using usb?

    Please use local reinstall intead of cloud download. It is one of the best option. It doesnt require the internet connection.

    Follow step number 12 and 13 to fix your stutters because I think you are getting because of standby memory.

    Disable memory compression feature (on systems with generous amount of RAM) can help improve gaming performance. Open Powershell (Admin mode), then type:

    Disable-MMAgent -mc

    You can simply turn off SVM from bios to ensure if it is completely . I already did that a year ago.

    I didn't mention this in guide because Enabling virtualization gives you access to a larger library of apps to use and install on your PC and many people use this feature

    Hey @GAMING6698, thanks for this awesome guide

    But i have this question. My use purpose for Acer Nitro 5 AN515-44 isn't gaming but more than often streaming/playing media. I bought this laptop because I like trying new things out and wanted to have graphics card whenever i do need it (and i sometimes actually do). Should i still follow this guide? Does it help me? While some aspects of this guide are i think universally useful, but what about others? specifically Nvidia control panel settings. Honestly I don't understand many stuff in that panel is a reason I'm asking you this question. All i basically want is smooth and good quality image and video while playing/tinkering around with media.
