    I'll probably update mine to Windows 10 this weekend.
    I don't expect any problems, as we're still recent enough with Intel to have good driver support for the most likely stuff to break.

    Have a back up to fall on just in case!

    Figured the P34G is the one PC out of four I did this weekend that gave me a problem.

    Not sure what happened, second try it worked fine.

    Going through the SmartUpdate updates now. :)

    Curiously it's telling me to update BIOS/EC to 306/F207, even though I'm already on it. Hm.

    Definitely some other wonkiness since the upgrade.

    Geforce Experience is mostly non-functional, even after a full reinstall - with a big dip in gaming performance too, even with the Win 10 driver right from Nvidia.

    Battery level seems stuck on 91% and charging (edit: when plugged in and charged, obviously), unlike the expected behavior which is charge to 100% then dip to 95 and charge back (afaik).

    Just to double check, does Smart Manager allow you to set the fan mode to auto and stealth? Also, all of your fn+F-key shortcuts work for volume, brightness etc.

    Thx

    The GeForce Experience has some issues in other OSes just the same. It's hit or miss to the point it may be better to simply not use it - to each their own experience (pun...). If you're using the Win 10 driver from the OS updater, try disabling the automatic driver updates and instead get the driver from NVidia's site.

    The battery charge notification could be faulty reporting, either per the OS or the hardware itself. Does it discharge (AC removed for a little while) from 91% and then recharge back to 91% consistently?

    91% or 94%
    always says it has 8mins till full charge

    it discharges normally though


    Having some Intel video issues too. mkv playback is green and distorted (seem to be regardless of the codecs involved, tested xvid and avc), other containers work fine though

    Wow, Nvidia stuff seems more screwed up than I first though.

    After uninstalled Geforce Experience the Nvidia control panel icon showed up in my tray (not consistently) but any attempt to open it results in a system hang requiring a reboot.

    May just end up uninstalling all Nvidia software and reinstalling it all. Something must've gotten screwed up along the way.

    Optimus definitely isn't working either.

    Tried a few different orders of uninstalling/reinstalling Nvidia's driver package - end result is always the 760m disabled in Device Manager.

    What about after a clean install (in NVidia's installer: Custom (Advanced), then check the "clean installation" ticker box)? Or even using DDU to remove the driver first?
