    Refreshing my installation


    Hello all, TIA.
    I am trying to refresh my 8 install in the hope it will correct a couple of little issues on one of my notebooks.
    The process went along fine until it decided to see if the PC was 'ready' to install.
    Despite the fact that the battery is full, it insists on me having the power plugged in. I did that and it refuses to accept that it is plugged in, it just keeps telling me to plug it in.
    I have checked the power point, the cable seems fine, it is plugged in everywhere it should be and there is a little light says that I am plugged in, which goes out the instant I unplug.

    How can I get this thing to do what it should?
    Thanks
    Paul

    Try with the battery removed.

I need to do a reinstall, but I don't want to lose absolutely everything. I've got about 500gb of media I want to keep, and I've got a load of Steam games installed I don't really want to have to redownload. Will it keep all that? And other than that, is it just like doing a reinstall?
