  • Patch Lady – don’t go around the block

    Posted on May 3rd, 2018 at 13:01 Susan Bradley Comment on the AskWoody Lounge

    For those with certain models of Alienware machines read on for issues with 1803:

    Do not go around the block:

    Side effects include not being able to wake from sleep. Go Back to 1709 under Settings > Update & security > Recovery

    Alienware 13 R3
    Alienware 15 R3
    Alienware 15 R4
    Alienware 17 R4
    Alienware 17 R5

    Microsoft is currently blocking these models from installing the update due to a known incompatibility that may cause these devices to display a black screen after resuming from battery saver mode. For this reason, we do not recommend attempting to work around the current block to install the April 2018 Update. Microsoft is currently working on a solution that will be provided in a future Windows Update, after which these devices will be able to install the April 2018 Update.

    If you are receiving this message, you do not need to take any action at this time. There are no apps that need to be uninstalled. Windows Update will notify you when the April 2018 Update is ready for your device.
