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