Hi there and thank you for taking the time to read/help.
I'm running a custom built PC with win10 and an ASUS P9X79 WS motherboard.
I did a free upgrade from windows 7 ulti to win10 pro, everything was smooth for a month on win10, and the whole year prior with windows 7, it was built within a year ago.
So these updates appeared in the win10 update section:
Intel - Other hardware - Intel® Xeon®Â E7 v2/Xeon® E5 v2/Core i7 Power Control Unit 2 - 0EC2
Intel - Other hardware - Intel® Xeon®Â E7 v2/Xeon® E5 v2/Core i7 Power Control Unit 3 - 0EC3
Intel - Other hardware - Intel® Xeon®Â E7 v2/Xeon® E5 v2/Core i7 Integrated Memory Controller 0 Target Address/Thermal Registers - 0EA8
As well as many more.
I clicked to install the updates, then nothing happened, i let it sit over night, woke up still nothing. Restarted my PC and boom.
Asus bios screen says CPU overheat/CPU fan not working.
I ignored them so it would boot and here I am.
I included a JPEG of speedfan's stats on my PC, showing no fans operating, as well as high temps on core 0 and such.
I then worried maybe it's unsupported and I made a rookie move doing that update.
Sure enough I went online and the ASUS website indicates no support for win10 64 bit drivers for my motherboard.
Now I'm wondering how to undo such a thing, I really don't want to use windows restore, as it says it will erase ALL my apps no matter what. Which is strange to me as windows 7 was able to revert back without getting rid of a single app. Puzzling to me. I'm also wondering if there's another restore function I'm unaware of that doesn't require deleting everything I've installed app-wise.
If anyone needs any more screen shots of anything or specs of any type, or any questions at all, I'll get right on it.
I'm willing to try anything, I'm 50/50 tech savvy, so I can attempt quite a few solutions.
