    Upgrading Windows 10 to Version 2004

    This seems to have worked! I uninstalled PACE Anti-Piracy and confirmed TPKD.sys was no longer in the system32/drivers folder. After running the update again through the Upgrade Tool, it completed successfully. Thanks all for your help :)

    Upgrading Windows 10 to Version 2004

    Thanks for the responses. I removed CPU, RAM, and GPU overclocks. I also uninstalled AVG, Malwarebytes (which I failed to mention I also had installed), and Spybot. I ran DISM and sfc, and it detected an issue and fixed it. I also disabled all non-Microsoft services, disabled all startup...

    Upgrading Windows 10 to Version 2004

    I noticed an update was available for my OS after discovering some features in a game were unavailable for my current version of Windows 10 Home (version 1909). When I click "Check for updates", it says I'm up to date, but I see right below that that there's a feature update to version 2004 and...

    Solved: Bootcamp Assistance

    Thanks. I made the stupid mistake by not having Bootcamp Windows Support installed. After that and a few other installations for things such as multitouch support, I have things running as they should.

    Solved: Bootcamp Assistance

    I've been using Parallels Desktop any time I needed to boot my Windows 7 OS off my MacBook Pro. However, I just installed a Windows version of Avid Pro Tools on the Windows partition. I restarted my MacBook and held down the Option key to select my startup disk. After booting off the Windows...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    Alright, so here's what I did. First, I immediately decided to perform a system recovery and restore everything to factory default settings. I began backing everything up, but the file transfer aborted after it told me that I didn't have enough room on the hard drive I was using. I did what you...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    UPDATE: After successfully installing NVIDIA drivers, I had to restart for the updates to completely install. Again, it took quite a long time for the computer to shut down, so I hard booted it. During startup, my display automatically shut down. I hard booted again and changed the BIOS settings...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    If I hadn't voided both warranties by unscrewing the covers of both the XFX GPU and PSU then I'd totally send them back. I was looking around each piece of hardware to clean and inspect. But, it's not so bad. I bought a Corsair GS700 PSU from Best Buy for $99.99, installed it just now and it...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    Alright, I suppose I'll go out and purchase a new one tomorrow. There's a Corsair 700W that I could purchase from a nearby Best Buy. It's annoying having to spend all this money on hardware when I'm not even positive if it's the issue; Best Buy has a 15-day return policy with no restocking fee...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    So you're saying the fact that I'm unable to install or uninstall any of my drivers, or that I was getting random shutdowns of my display is because of my power supply? Why would that be? Especially since I had no problems with it the first day I installed my new GPU.

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    Unfortunately, I only have this XFX and my old 250W power supply. I'll try this. I already tried this. The installer still gets stuck in the same place while trying to install the Graphics Drivers. Yes it is. -- I also notice that when booting up normally, some USB devices...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    UPDATE #2: Downloaded the Hitachi Drive Fitness Test. Launched the installer and it won't start installing. There seems to be a pattern unveiling. I failed to mention that while I was removing the power supply from my computer, a few things came unplugged. I plugged them in where I thought they...

    UPDATE: Same problem. Installer locks up. Trying your suggestion now, replay.

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    I used Driver Sweeper to force remove any NVIDIA driver information. During the restart, I got a "DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE" blue screen. Not sure what the exact cause was, but if it has any correlation with my issue (which I'm assuming it does), could that possibly shed more light on the exact...

    Solved: Cannot Install Graphics Drivers

    UPDATE: Just attempted to install the previous two versions of NVIDIA graphics drivers with no avail. All installers are still getting stuck in the same spot.
