Windows 8.1 Aug Update Released (KB2975719)

  1. #11


    Can't install it! I just tried to install it on my desktop and it went thru the download and install process, then backed it out. Since it's optional, I think I'll just skip installing it and "hide" it in my updates.

    windows 8.1 Update 1 Pro 64bit


    I installed it but it took a verrrrry long time. Between downloading just this one, installing and re boot configuration over 15 minutes. For one update, really!!

    I had 31 updates total, it sat at 0kb total % percent complete for a while and then just jumped to 88 % or something. I didn't time it but I don't think it took more than 10 minutes. I started the download just before typing this post on my laptop and its installing now.

    I only had 15 updates and they went trough in a breeze. It was just this one optional update that took the excessive time. If this update is just for touchpads, why would I get it. I don't even own a touchpad.

    BTW: I hope your back will get better QLB

    My laptop has a touchpad, I guess its not a "precision touchpad" as I don't see the added options where they say they should be?


    I suffer from chronic pain, some days are better than others. We've had a lot of damp rainy days lately so my neck and shoulders are really sore. I have spondylitis in my cervical spine and degenerative disks in my lumbar spine. Add in my sciatica and the onset of fibromyalgia and it all adds up to a lot of pain at times. I can deal with it most days, but if I seem sporadic in my posts some days that's why. Sitting for extended periods can be very painful. Sitting is one of the worst things you can do if you have back issues. It puts the most strain on your vertebra. That's why sit stand desks are getting popular. For me sitting at the computer isn't as relaxing as it is for others.

    Win 8.1 Update x64


    After this update, lost charging ability of AC adapter to my lap.

    No error message in the battery icon, its just that its not charging.

    I tried these:

    Hard reset

    plugged in with ac adapter only - could power on & use

    unplugged ac adapter, put battery in - could power on & use

    with both ac adapter & battery inserted and powered on - no charging occurring and level goes down on use.

    Did a forced shutdown, booted up with ac adap only, uninstalled MS ACPI battery, shutdown, restarted with battery alone, again shutdown - powered on with both

    did a battery test from System diag F10 - passed ok

    tried different plug ports in my house with the same result

    did a powerdefault from cmd

    all the drivers are up to date from product site.

    Has anyone been having some issues after installing this latest optional update, KB2975719? I have. Every time I minimize or close a metro app it takes me back to the start menu instead of the desktop. This is very annoying since I have to manually go back to desktop. I never had this incident before installing this update. Let me know if anyone else has the same issue.
