Groove Music Issue
Hello Microsoft Community! I've been having a problem with the Groove Music app on Windows and I wanted to see if anyone could help me. So, I'm big on music and one thing I like about groove is the fact that you can add custom album art which is great for my techno artist and albums that groove can't find album art for but, for some reason, when I try and add this art myself sometimes, I just get the default image photo instead of the album art itself. Even when I save it, It's still this stupid default photo. Can anyone help me at all?
Windows 10 cannot start!
I have a Dell desktop running Windows 10. Three days ago, when I turned on the computer, first it showed a blue window with white dots circling around beneath. A few seconds later, the blue window disappeared, and only the white dot(s) circling for hours. The screen is in black. I tried to roll back the update and failed. I even tried to reset the PC, it still could not finished. I tried Microsoft support or Internet search, and I cannot find any solution. Can someone help me to resolve this extremely difficult problem? Thanks.

Access violation at address 0x9fced637
Hello guys I've been having this problem for a while now, whenever i start up dirt rally 2.0 it crashes with an error which sounds like this "Access violation at address 0x9fced637 in module 'dirtrally2.exe' + 0xcdd637. dirtrally2.exe". After a bit of googling i found that error is caused by directx probably. I have tried reinstalling the game, scanning my PC for corrupted files in cmd with sfc /scannow, I've tried disabling the other sound device (not the realtek one) yet nothing has worked. I'm getting desperate please help if you can
in place upgrade vs. reinstall
Sometimes, our devices may run into issues that doing the sfc /scannow command or creating a new user account, etc. will not fix the issues. Here are two popular methods to fix problems. 1) in place upgrade: What is an in place upgrade? It is basically reinstalling Windows while we get to keep our files, folders, settings, etc. It basically gives us a fresh couple of the Windows system files. Meaning, we might do the sfc /scannow command and it found corrupt system files that cannot be repaired. The in place upgrade will give us fresh system files. pros: We do not lose any files, folders, settings, etc. when choosing the in place upgrade. cons: When choosing this method, it will take a while to complete. It requires several restart of the device. If the device has a good CPU, etc., then it will be a little quicker but will still take time to complete. p.s. After the in place upgrade is finished, we might have to update few drivers again. Usually, the in place upgrade will revert the newer drivers to the previous ones. Remember, it will create Windows.old. That will take a lot of space. The best way is to go to storage under settings and Storage Sense to delete Windows.old. You can free up over 10GB of temporary files and can regain some C drive disk space. 2) reinstalling Windows 10: What this does is basically reinstalling Windows 10 again. Giving us a fresh start. pros: This method is usually quicker than the in place upgrade. cons: The cons of choosing this method is it wipes out everything. p.s. When choosing this method, I generally only wipe out the C drive but do not wipe out the D drive. If you want to choose this command, I suggest you to copy everything in the desktop or if you have put files, folders, etc. in the C drive to a portable drive. Also, download the bookmark from Edge, Chrome, etc. and save it to a portable drive. It is because after reinstallation of Windows 10, they will be gone.
Can't adjust screen brightness.
Helllo. I recently updated my Laptop with the latest version of Windows 10. Everything works fine EXCEPT the screen brightness. Earlier I could adjust my screen brightness, but now no matter how much I increase or decrease the level in the control panel, the actual brightness level remains the same, and I think it's at the highest level, since the battery is going done by a scary 10% in 20 minutes. I am currently working on my laptop wearing sunglasses. Please Helpp ! P.S My laptop has got two Display Adapters, Radeon Graphics and Intel Graphics, and I've tried updating both the drivers, and it says that you've already got the best drivers for your device, after searching on the internet.
