From new Windows installation issues. To slow Internet speeds Your Windows 11 problems will be gone with our easy solutions
It’s not the newest and most powerful desktop operating system. However, Windows problems are still being reported. as the OS faces the usual problems that we’d anticipate encountering in the first few months following the release. It’s good to know that the majority of issues that are popping up are resolved. And we’ll teach you how to accomplish it in this guide.
While Windows 11 was released in October. it’s very early in the development of any OS. And we’re seeing a variety of Windows 11 speed-up issues being experienced by people trying to make the switch to Windows 10. Although some users have persistent issues after upgrading. but this is generally uncommon. with the majority of users having Windows problems that are rather easy to fix.
Make sure to check for the Windows 11 system requirements
In order to install Windows, or to ensure that it functions properly you’ll have to ensure that your computer meets the below Windows 11 minimum system requirements:
- processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or higher with at least two cores in a compatible 64-bit processor SoC
- RAM: 4GB
- Storage: 64GB
- Software Firmware for the System: Unified Firmware Interface and Secure Boot capable
- TPM: Trusted Platform Module 2.0
- Graphics Card DirectX 12 and later, the WDDM 2.0 driver
- Displays: 720p, 8-bit per color channel, or at minimum 9-inches wide
- Internet Connection and Microsoft Account: Windows 11 Home requires an active internet connection as well as an active Microsoft Account to complete. the initial configuration for the first use of the OS or when switching devices from Windows 11 Home in S-mode.
Windows 11 compatibility check
If your system fulfills the above-mentioned criteria it is recommended to conduct a health test to ensure. that your system is up and running for installation of Windows.
- To perform the health test, you must initially download and install the Microsoft PC Health Check app(opens in a new tab)
- After installation, you can run the program.
- Click on the blue “Check Now” button on the Windows 11 banner
- If your computer has been tested, then you’ll see an email stating “This PC will run Windows 11”
Windows 11 won’t run due to TPM
If Microsoft’s Windows upgrade checker tells you that your system isn’t compatible. but it has all other requirements. then you must make sure that your BIOS is set for the option to turn on the TPM feature.
Nearly every modern CPU comes with support for TPM. If you are using an Intel CPU, then you have to change to TPM and AMD. you will need to verify PSP FTPM in BIOS. Once you have done that. you can use Microsoft’s health checker to confirm the status. This will enable Windows to install.
Make space on your disk
Similar to the previous operating systems. Windows 11 requires a minimum amount of hard drive space in order to upload and run. If the primary drive (where Windows 10 is installed usually the C drive) is nearly full. and you’re having issues in installing Windows.
Windows 11 requires 64GB of storage.
The first step to take in the event that your Windows 11 install fails is to verify the space on your drive within Windows Explorer. If you find that your drive is without space you can type “Disk Clean-up” in the search box in the taskbar. Select your system drive (usually the C drive).
Turn off the anti-virus software
Antivirus software is definitely beneficial to have. however, it may cause issues when you try to install Windows 11.
If you have an antivirus program installed, disable it prior to installing Windows. as that might fix the issue. It is then recommended to enable it. And then use it normally after the installation has been completed.
Internet is slow following the upgrade to Windows 11
We warned in October of Windows issues could slow the speed of your Internet. this is exactly what people have been reporting after installation.
It appears that streaming movies by using VPNs as well as general internet browsing could be slow. It appears to be affecting those who use Intel Killer hardware.
Microsoft knows about the issue. But will roll out a Windows cumulative update on October 12 to hopefully address the issue.
There are two solutions that are listed on AMD’s website(opens in a new tab). The first one addresses the issue of the functional L3 cache’s latency being increased in certain applications. To address this issue, Microsoft has released a new Windows 11 software update. KB5006746(opens in a new tab) to get and then install. It is possible to do this through Microsoft’s Windows Update app in Windows 11.
AMD has also announced a Chipset Driver application(opens in a new tab). which fixes a problem that affected the 8-core AMD processors. And greater saw a decrease in performance due to improperly scheduled threads.
