    It's probably called display power scaling technology, and it comes back whenever drivers are updated.

    This or that before you or something else. I still can't remember the name.

    The official fix from Microsoft knowledge base is this if I remember correctly :

    Unplug the power, then plug it back when your computer is powered on.

    please, read it carefully, you can set it manually. It's the same as F.lux
    it's already rip for me, a nice program for sure, but my laptop includes Acer Quick Access, which among other things, reduces blue light. Too bad I purchased Iris for 10€ when there was f.lux and Iris works, but it's too convoluted for my taste

    What I don't understand is something about the option "Long Hour Mode" in my Acer Quick Access Bluelight Shield option. There is Low Reduction, Medium Reduction, High Reduction and Long Hour Mode. I always choose Long Hour Mode 'cos it's the last mode, but does it have any secret meaning in English?

    Maybe its just connecting ?
    If you boot with the controller plugged in it may be ok ?
    or maybe its just a problem with xbox controllers maybe a driver conflict because there's no mention of problems with usb joysticks or wheels or non xbox controllers

    Hehe, I had a similar response, not because I have any controllers but instead just trying to imagine how a controller insert makes the display driver go wacky. Microsoft never ceases to amaze. :)

    It is just an insider preview build, so unless you're subscribed to the preview builds, this will not affect you.

    Because the new version has a game mode. It's not actually that weird.

    Any idea where I can check how many digital upgrade licenses I have on my Microsoft account?

    I think I have upgraded my laptop to 10 for free and then downgrade back to 8.

    Now I want to fresh install it with 10 but not sure it's that laptop or another laptop that got the 10 license.

    I thought once you did the free win 10 upgrade then you can install win10 as many times as you want as long as its the same machine
    afaik I dont even have a microsoft account

    I guess we do not share opinions. When an input device crashes a display driver, I find it questionable. Yes, I get it, one common denominator for those two is a game. Another common denominator is just freakin' using your keyboard and mouse to interact with the desktop though.

    I find it weird, even if you do not :)

    Still, it could have an option to automatically enable game mode when you plug in a joypad, and game mode is a very low driver level thing from what I read.

    I've always had success with the licensing updater via the phone option. They just give you a bunch of chars to two into the phone, then give you a new license key and it will reassign whatever license there is to that hardware.

    You could of quoted the bit of the article that explains why instead of the bit that tells us what ms have done

    edit: the article doesnt explain why
