Microsoft released cumulative updates for various Windows versions. Earlier, it was known that some HP devices running Windows 10 were affected by a black screen issue after logging-in.

Now, an issue related to Windows 8.1 has come to light. A post made on Microsoft Answers last week reveals some users aren’t able to log-in to their Microsoft account after the September Update, MSPowerUser reports.

The PC leaves them deprived of their account and shows the following message while blaming some network error:

“Sorry, we could not connect to Microsoft services right now. If this problem persists, search for “network problems” on the Start screen.”

According to a response posted by Microsoft, the company was already aware of the problem and was working on the fix.

“This is a known bug in Windows 8.1 after the latest September update. Our Support Engineers are already looking into it and doing their best to resolve it as quickly as possible so as to minimize the inconvenience to our customers. We’ll keep you updated via this thread once a bug fix has been released.”

Given the reduced market of Windows 8.1, it’s unlikely that the bug would have affected many users. A substantial amount of credit is to be given to the free and forced availability of Windows 10, in addition to the already ill-famed life of the operating system.

Anyways, affected users will have to wait till the update arrives. If you are one such user, please drop your thoughts in the comments.
