Fix: Windows 10 2004 Performance Issues
When Microsoft began rolling out its Windows 10 May 2020 update, version 2004, the company was already looking into a number of issues. The problems associated with this version ranged from the bugs that affected peripherals, mouse input, Bluetooth to the problems related to GPU drivers and their displays.
Microsoft has provided a few workarounds for the above issues. But it has strongly advised against the manual installation of Windows 10, version 2004.
Usually, after a major Windows 10 rollout, there will be some driver compatibility problems. Nevertheless, users were hoping that Windows 10 2004 would be a very smooth update because Microsoft had spent an additional six months’ time for testing this version with the Windows Insiders.
Microsoft discovered that some versions of the drivers for Realtek Bluetooth radios are incompatible with Windows 10 2004. So, the company has issued a block on its Windows 10 2004 rollout to devices with affected Realtek drivers.
As far as the Bluetooth issue is concerned, Microsoft has advised against the usage of the Update now button or the Media Creation Tool, until the Windows 10 2004 Performance Issues is solved.
Added to the above, MS has blocked the Windows 10 2004 update for computers that come along with Intel integrated graphics processing units. Both companies have been working on a fix.
And, that is not the end of the performance issues list. There is also the stop error that occurs along with a blue screen when you plug or unplug your Thunderbolt dock while specific settings are enabled. There is another compatibility issue that pops up while using GameInput Redistributable.
MS is also known to be fixing a glitch that happens with Windows 10 2004 and certain older drivers for the Nvidia display adapters.
So, we have now seen the various Windows 10 2004 performance issues and the workarounds that Microsoft is trying to implement.
