Updates Caused Computer Failure

Nov 14, 2012

last night I did the 13 required updates for my Windows 7. So, when I awoke this morning, in my attempt to load up into Windows 7 again, it failed, I tried again at least 6 time, and still nothing. It would get to "starting Windows" then go to a Grey screen.

Windows Update Caused Startup Failure

I am convinced that my computer has been dishonored and is trying to commit Hari-Kari.This year-old Toshiba P755 came with Win 7 installed. This August after an automatic Windows Update it failed to startup properly. After logging in Explorer would freeze.I was able to start up in Safe Mode. Windows Update log showed that a half dozen updates had just been installed, and several had failed.I used Recovery and selected a restore point just before the update. All went OK and the computer now worked until the next time I shut down, whereupon it headed off to re-install the updates. This time I noticed it hung in the Installing Updates, do not turn off your computer" screen for many, many hours, eventually failing to install them.

I repeated this cycle three times over teh next few days, growing more desperate each time. Finally I found a kb on the MSDN site that sounded applicable. It had me download and install a "Mr. Fixit" utility. I did so, got one more lockup, then upon entering Safe Mode saw a new option: Repair Startup or some such. I tried it and lo, it worked. No more endless "Installing Updates" messages.I then changed the Windows Update mode to manual. It still sent me messages about updates being available, so I then turned off the Windows Update service.

All was quiet for three weeks. Then last Friday the same drill - hung after logging in. Only this time it has invented a more ominous way to die. I did the Safe Mode->Control Panel->Recovery drill (I can do it in my sleep now) and, uh-oh, it says I have no restore points! I used to have dozens....Looking at the update log, I only see three update that (I think) are when I installed Mr. Fixit. I went ahead and uninstalled them anyway. The computer wanted a reboot, and once again locked on the "configuring Updates" screen.Now I can only start up in Safe Mode with Networking, which is how I am able to write this.

1) With no restore points to choose, what next?

2) How do I keep this from happening again?

Potential Crash Caused By Windows Updates On Nuked Sony Vaio?

Feb 19, 2012

I recently used DBAN to nuke my girlfriends laptop (a Sony Vaio) after it was rendered near-useless by a virus. I reinstalled Windows 7 and all was well until it came to updating. There was 100+ security updates etc and they were all downloaded and installed automatically. After this the laptop's performance became increasingly worse until a couple of days later it died on us again. I re-nuked it and reinstalled Windows 7. I haven't downloaded any updates and it's working fine now, so my somewhat inevitable question is this: is it possible that one of these updates causing the laptop to freak out? If so, how do I identify it?

Failure To Install A Bunch Of Updates?

Aug 31, 2012

I have been trying to install a bunch of windows updates, but every time I try it gets to 15% configured, then fails. It shuts down and restarts my computer and gives me a message that the updates failed. I'm not sure what to do here.

Here's a screenshot to show the updates that aren't working. (If you can't see it, right click the "broken link" symbol and click "open image in new tab/window")

Failure To Install 5 Updates, 800b0100

Jan 15, 2013

I originally was failing 14 updates with 800b0100 and one other error code (forgot which). I went with manually installing them, and it took it down to 5 updates fail to install with only error code 800b0100.


I had some unstable RAM settings when first setting up the computer, where I think an update or so was occuring and the system crashing. Pretty sure only during the download process though.Anyways, I've done everything on this that I can find. SFC Scannow, System Update Readiness Tool, Reset content of catroot2, Remove any incorrect registry (none of the stuff they say to delete was even in there), The only step that did not go 100% smoothly was "Register the Windows Update Files":


On the bolded ones, I get: Quote: This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is laready installed, create an assocation in the Default Programs control panel. and the Rename Pending.xml (there is no pending.xml file, cmd says cant find it, etc).Turned off firewall and AV (WSE), renamed software distribution folder, Clear BITS queue, ran update 958056 (the tool that takes forever), ran chkdsk, ran disk cleaner.Also, every once in a while, when trying to "Try Again" on the updates, it'll say "Windows update success! Updates unnecessary' or something like that. Then I hit check for updates, and those updates become necessary once again, and, all those language packs and remote desktop optional updates that I hid, become unhidden again.

Failure Configuring Windows Updates / Reverting Changes

Nov 19, 2012

I have been onto the Microsoft support page and followed various "cures" all to no avail. I have been into control panel and gone through the windows troubleshooting advice and it tells me that it has found and fixed problems with my Windows update and installed 9 updates. When I click to restart I get the same failure message at startup.It seems to recycle the startup procedure 3 times before it eventually gets to my desktop page, and when I look ar my update history there is a long list of failed installations.

Update To Windows Error: Failure To Configuring Windows Updates

Dec 16, 2011

I have Hp Pavillian, Windows 7 Home Premium Edition, 64bit system. Everytime Windows downloads Windows updates, it is successfull downloading and installing, however, I then get a message saying: Failure configuring Windows Updates, Reverting Changes, Do Not turn off your computer.

I have gotten Windows Fixit for Windows Updates and installed....but that does not clear up the problem. I have not wanted to use Restore feature of Windows 7, since I have installed many critical programs that I use. Is there any other solution out in Cyberspace that will help resolve the "Failure Configuring Windows Updats".

For the past day windows wants to install the same 4 updates over and over, I have windows update set to download and let me choose when to install.

I can't understand why I even need them, as I uninstalled net framework. Notice how the update at 8:17 AM., KB2656368, is the same as one of the 4 updates installed at 7:47 PM. Windows wants to install the same four kb files again.How do I stop this?

Why Does Computer Not Come Back On After Power Failure

Jul 20, 2012

Why doesn't my computer boot up after power failure? The bios is set to boot after power failure. I have to jump start the motherboard to get it to boot. What causes this to happen? Is it a power surge? I can unplug and plug the computer back in and have no problem booting. If I have a power failure, no Boot. The last power failure was a sudden off no "on-Off" fluctuations. I want an explantion so I can prevent it from happening. Is a UPC the only solution?

Can't Boot Computer (Media Test Failure)

Jul 15, 2011

Yesterday while watching an online baseball stream and simultaneously browsing facebook, my computer randomly gave me an error message. Unfortunately I don't remember what the message was about. What I do remember is that I immediately opened a new firefox tab and searched up the error. I clicked on the first link, and the OP was talking about how he had received the error and shortly after, his computer shut down. Almost on cue, my computer crashed and restarted itself.Ever since then, I can't boot up my computer properly.I turn on the computer, I see the first two screens that I always see (BIOS screen and then the 'Detecting eSATA drives' screen). After this it goes to the third screen, which I also always see. But this is where the problem is.First it loads all that code crap that I never understand. Then, like always it gives me these two lines: 'Verifying DMI Pool Data....'And then 'Boot from CD'. This always happens. But regularly from here it just boots up and goes to the Windows loading screen.Now, on the same screen, it starts giving me error messages.

NVIDIA Boot Agent 253.0543

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting NVIDIA Boot Agent


Before, I was also getting the error message 'PXE-E53: No Boot Filename Received' prior to the media test failure message. After I unplugged and replugged my internal hard drive (some forums were saying to check the cables for the hard drive) the first error dissapeared.I have a Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit OS. I bought the computer second-hand off a guy who was selling it online. He didn't have any of the CDs, so my copy of Windows 7 is burned (though I do have the CD still). Before yesterday it was working fine.All I want to do is to be able to get into the computer (Hard Drive) once, so that I can backup all my files and then I'd reinstall Windows 7 from scratch.

No Updates Are Installed On Computer?

Using win 7 home edition 64 bit. Ran and installed updates yesterday. Now I have minutes long waits for any program or action. When I looked to reverse the update, "no updates are installed on this computer", is displayed in the installed updates window. Also, none of my restore points are seen. This is a first. I have tried reboots, and McAfee scan. What's next?

Computer Showing Error On Startup, SMART Failure?

Sep 13, 2011

Last night, i noticed i had low memory on my C drive. so I uninstalled a few programs - games mostly and needless addons - and then restarted. After restarting, the laptop got stuck at the bootup screen, at about 70%, then persisted to say "operating system not found" repeatedly.

This morning, after turning it on, it now gets past this screen, but says theres a "SMART failure predicted" on on my Hard drive. It also says ahard drive fail;ure is imminent. It does this for a few minutes, and then gets 'stuck' again at 70% at startup.

So.. is this a problem with my HDD? Everything points to this, but I'm not sure of my next step? Do i need to reinstall windows (problem, seeing as i don't have an installation disc)

Computer Shut Down While Installing Updates?

Jan 21, 2013

my brand new Asus ultrabook was installing updates, got to 30-40% and the screen turned off. I waited for about 30-40 mins but nothing changed so i turned it off from the button. Tried holding it down several times, and turning it back on and off but nothing changed. I can hear it loads windows and i have blindly managed to type my password and i've even heard skype load so it must be working properlu besides the dark monitor.

Windows 7 Updates Slow Down Computer?

Apr 30, 2011

So I have a Dell XPS Studio 1645 laptop. It's been a solid all-purpose machine for the most part. I like to game on it when I can and it holds up pretty well, running Starcraft 2 on medium/high settings, Batman Arkham Asylum on medium/high, and League of Legends maxed outI get pretty picky when it comes to frames per second (FPS). If there's a slowdown (less than 35) I like to know why and usually take steps to remedy as soon as I can. A few months ago I realized that my FPS were starting to take a real hit. At the time it seemed to creep up on me, so I didn't really notice it at first. After it was pretty apparent there was an issue with all the programs/games I was running, I decided to do a system restore. This fixed the problem and I recognized it had originated with some recent Windows 7 updates that I had set to "auto-update." Since some time had passed, I wasn't sure of the exact update, so I just turned the updates off and resumed my activities as normal.

A few months later, I've had some problems with my email security. My provider mentioned that out-dated operating systems can be a source of this issue. So reluctantly, I've turned "auto-update" back on and have fully updated my Windows 7 operating system. But as before, the slowdowns are back. My FPS are at a crawl and even my internet browser seems to be slower.

Computer Running Super Slow And System Restore Failure?

Dec 23, 2011

I have an Acer Aspire timeline computer I bought 2 years ago. This computer advertised great battery life, internal cooling, and all sorts of other cool things....unfortunately, it was all a lie. But enough about that, As of like 3 days ago, I noticed my computer would respond slowly and take forever to complete a shutdown. I thought nothing of it until I decided to scan it usingSuperAntiSpyware. It came back with 40 tracking cookies, which I deleted. Upon rebooting my computer, I noticed it was still running slowly. So I decided a system restore would be niceI tried the first availible restore date. That apparently failed. Then I tried several others, with no success. I kept getting error codes telling me that the system restore failed to extract the file. It said the disk failiure might have been caused by bad sectors....I have no idea what that means. Ive tried multiple restore dates, they all come back with the same message.

I do not have Norton on my computer ( I read this was part of the problem in many other machines with the same restore error, but just to make it clear, that is not part of the problem with my computer). I can only use my computer in safe mode, because the regular boot mode is wayy too slow and laggy. Also I have plenty space on my computer so it couldnt possibly be slowing down because its getting full or something.

My window 7 updates will not install after the computer reboots after saying it is installing i get updates failed. I talked to techguru guys online and they said that I had many corrupt files and wanted $119.00 to fix it one time or $299. for a two year contract. While they were remotely using my computer I could see the corrupted 32 bit files in the registry. I dont know if this was true or if it was the reason that the updates do not install. and they said the corrupted files are replicating and will crash my computer.

Computer Crashes After Installing Drivers Or Updates?

May 10, 2012

I have windows 7 installed on a PC I built a little over a year ago. I recently upgraded to the windows 8 consumer preview, but I didn't like it so I'm trying to switch back. When I install windows it works fine, I can turn my computer off and on as many times as I want and it will be fine, but if I install any video card drivers or any of the updates that windows tells me to install, the next time it boots up I either get the windows splash screen or a black screen right after it says, "starting windows", and shows the 4 orb things that spin around and turn into the windows logo. It stays on this screen for 5-10 seconds and then continues to black or the splash screen. I have tried installing only my video card driver, I have tried installing only one of the recommended updates, but no matter what I install it doesn't work the next time it boots, so I don't think it's a problem with one specific driver. However I have selected only the ones that started with: important windows update, or something like that, none of the security updates or anything and those installed successfully. I have reset my bios and changed every setting I can think of, but nothing works. I have also completely formatted and re-patitioned my hard drive. I have basically reset my computer as much as possible without building a new one. What else can I do? I need to install my video card driver at the very least or I can't play games, which is the whole reason I built a PC

Constant Updates Everytime Computer Shuts Down

Every time I shut down my laptop, there would always be the notice "installing update 1 of 1". This has been happening for a while and I'm wondering what's going on.

In addition, many random files have been created in the Local C drive as shown: Corrupted Image removed - please re- upload

I don't know if I should just delete them but anyway, I chose not to just in case.
