Windows 10 Update Ruined Things

So, after recently updating Win10, I've noticed my gaming is now stuck at 60 FPS. I've made sure vsync and xbox dvr is disabled, still problem is present.

Also, I can't figure out how to restore to previous Win10 save point, because Windows Settings crashes while loading! Soooo I can't load settings to get to where I need to go.

Any ideas on how I can revert back to before the update?

Revert hasn't helped all folk.

Just a quick note I've run into this and had to treat the machine as if windows was just installed. Install motherboad, audio, video drivers and apps specific to the machine.

Just so you know, Microsoft is not responsible for drivers yet. The PC industry is well, stuck in a time long ago. More than 2 decades and still driver hell.

Win 10 Settings

I installed all drivers I could for my Dell XPS that their website needed updating. Nothing improved.

Win10 must be screwed up or incomplete, because I can't even load Settings window from Start menu. Ridiculous thinking I'm looking at having to backup all my stuff and restore my laptop.

Since Windows doesn't limit the frame rate

That's a hardware and driver issue. I fear you're going to revert and still be stuck.

Not only but apps and settings. Remember I don't own your PC, not there to check everything out. Be sure to post in gaming forums like Tomshardware since well, they have tools I don't roll out here.

Settings tile 'missing'

If you find out what happened I'll be interested to know, Win 10 is totally unusable at present on my laptop. I don't know if it's related but System interrupts is using 98%CPU ? It isn't a hardware fault as laptop works fine with Mint 18

That's usually a driver or HDD issue.

Since Microsoft does drivers so hit and miss I go old school on drivers. But there's the rub. Folk today are expecting Appliance grade OSes. Linux has far better out of the box driver support. Microsoft has never embraced the driver area and still today leaves this to the makers and users to sort out.

That out of the way, the office, home and lab is all Windows 10 without any issues. But we are a group of programmers seasoned and well in the know about drivers etc.
