Unable to boot following latest Windows 10 update

Windows RT 8.1

After these three updates ((KB890830, KB3214628, KB3213986) to Windows 10 were done on 1/15/2017, my Dell XPS 13 will no longer boot. It has power, but will not show anything on the black screen...no cursor, no Dell logo, no spinning dots. I've read everything I can find and most suggest it is a video driver issue. However, none of the recommended fixes have worked...including downloading Windows 10 to and attempting to boot from a USB flash drive. Nothing happens with the exception of when I attempt to boot from the USB and press "D" when powering on...I'm taken through several screens of display colors and then back to black. Very frustrating to go to Dell and am being asked to pay for technical assistance on an issue caused by others. A simple update has now consumed hours of my time with no resolution in sight. Anyway, any suggestions on how to bring it back to life?

Parental Controls: Setting times for homework or games?

Windows RT 8.1

Hi, My son is 14 and we want to set very specific times so he cannot play games during week but can at weekend. I have watched a few youtube tutorials and read a few tutorials but I can't figure it out. They seem to focus on a less specific setting of blocking for specific times or hours the whole pc but not how to set it for specific apps or sites. We have Windows 10. Any ideas? I even thought I could set up 3 accounts on the PC. One for me as administrator and 2 for my son, 1 account for him to play games, one to do homework, and then allow specific things for each. Is that a work around to acheive this? Thanks.

Then downloaded optional and recommended updates and after they downloaded I no longer had sound, control of the keyboard or touchpad. However I can operate the laptop with a usb keyboard. Ear buds do not work. Ran Windows update trouble shooter and I checked in "Update Driver Software-HID Keyboard Device and it said it driver was up to date. Now what- refresh,reset or restore my pc?

Windows 10 logo key stopped working

Windows RT 8.1

Hello, My windows 10 key has stopped working, again. On a reboot it works briefly, and then fails. AFAICT disabling all startup applications doesn't fix the problem. The last time it broke I followed the instructions available here and the only thing that worked was creating a new user, which I did about 3 weeks ago. Obviously I can't create a new user everytime the windows key stops working. I use it constantly throughout a work session (app switching, app launching, windows management...) so it's a critically disabling bug. This seems like a fairly known problem 950 THOUAND views. (none of these solution worked for me) So is this a tracked bug? Is there a fix imminent? What can I do in the mean time.

Incorrect Password

Windows RT 8.1

I successfully installed the Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based on 01/10/2017. Now I get " incorrect password" when I attempt to login to my local account. I installed Windows 10 on July 8, 2016 and had no trouble until now. Cap locks is off and I am sure of the password because I can remove the battery and login with it one time before I get the Incorrect password message. I cannot find a direct answer in previous post. How do I fix it?
