different display setting that actually works. Another option you need to be aware of here is Disable driver signature enforcement. Now this option allows unsigned drivers that is a driver that doesn't contain a proper digital signature, to be installed on the system. Understand that all 64-bit versions of Windows require digitally signed drivers. The problem that you're going to run into is that some devices ship with unsigned drivers. If this is the case, then Windows will not allow you to load that driver, the idea being that it could have been tampered with at some point and might contain malware. However, if you trust the manufacturer that's providing the driver, then you can turn driver signature enforcement offwith option number seven, and then Windows will allow you to load the driver, even though it doesn't have a digital signature. There's also option number eight, Disable early launch anti-malware protection. This prevents the early launch anti-malware driver from starting, this may allow certain drivers to load that are being prevented by the anti-malware driver, but it also could potentially allow drivers that contain malware to be installed as well, so use option eight with caution. In fact, on my systems, I never use number eight. Number seven occasionally, number eight, never. Number nine is Disable automatic restart after failure. This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to crash. The only time you really want to use this option is if Windows is getting stuck in a perpetual loop where Windows crashes, and then tries to restart, crashes again, tries to restart, crashes again, tries to restart. If that's happening, turn on option number nine, and then after it crashes it'll just sit there, which is actually kind of useful in some situations because then you can actually see the error messages being created by the crash and can do some troubleshooting. I'm going to press F10 to look at our last option, and that is to launch the Recovery Environment. I'm going to press option number 1, and we're taken back to the screen that we were in before, where we can launch our various troubleshooting options to fix a system that's not running properly, such as using System Restore,restoring the system from an image backup, running Startup Repair, or, running our Startup Settings just like we were in. Summary 10:12-10:21 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about our Advanced Startup settings on Windows 10. We talked about how to get to the Startup Settings menu, and then we talked about what each of the Startup Setting menu options do. If your system will not start, or if it is having significant problems, then you can boot your system in a variety of modes that may help you get your system up and running. There are two main ways you can select an alternate boot mode: Access the Settings app and select one of the following: o Windows 8: Update and Recovery > Recovery > Restart Now o Windows 10: Update and Security > Recovery > Restart Now Run the msconfig.exe utility to specify which boot mode you would like to use, then reboot the system.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
