    Windows 10 to Windows 8.1 downgrading issue

    Hello this is my first post here. I have an Asus T100TA and it was windows 8.1. Out of curiosity, i tried the free upgrade to windows 10 using the installer that you can download on the microsoft website. To make it simple, i installed windows 10 through wifi. After what was like 3 weeks of use maybe, i didn't like it anymore since it was a bit laggy on my device so i downgraded to windows 8.1 since i still didn't reach the 30 days limit for downgrading. Now when i came back to the previous OS, everything simply went wrong. I logged in my administrator account and i can't reach the desktop because it flickers back and forth to the start menu. I logged in to another account and created another administrator and deleted the old one i used. The problems that occured after were horrible. The front camera doesn't function anymore and the mouse pointer flickers like something heavy was running on background even though there wasn't.

    I already posted this on the microsoft forums but haven't really got any answers. Now i want to reset it to its out-of-the-box state just for a fresh start all over. I badly need some help. I am considering to upgrade to windows 10 again if it could solve my problem.

    Welcome to the forum

    I think your last sentence sounds like the right move. It would be less trouble to bite the bullet and go for 10 than to try fixing the current issues short of that fact5ory reset. You aren't the first to have a roll back not work well.

    I agree with Leeshor - but I'd go one step further...

    Do fresh full install of W10 - get the ISO from MS & your drivers set from Asus and do a proper job.

    Well that sounds a bit geeky mate. How can i exactly do that? Don't mind teaching me step by step. A link to a tutorial would be enough help.

    Thanks mate! The only problem is that this device doesn't have any cd-rom so a fresh install might be tricky. Any advice you can give?

    Knowing how to perform basic PC maintenance is a need - unless you want to pay a local computer engineer to do it for you.

    My suggestion to you is that either you, or a friend who can, wipes and rebuilds your machine. It's not as scary as it sounds and it doesn't cost anything but time.

    For W8.1 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...ad/windows8ISO
    For W10 - https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/soft...d/windows10ISO

    Then go to the Asus website and download the SoC drivers for your particular model.

    I also recommend installing some form of security solution - at least turn on Windows built in Defender & Firewall.
