Updates :: Windows 8.1 Updated And Now Stuck On Loading Sign

Aug 1, 2014

I recently, restored my acer m5-581ptg to factory settings, since it is an older version (2012), there were about 111 updates that needed to be installed. That all went fine and then on startup, it starts up and shows the loading sign and 'please wait'.

I tried tapping f8 and shift + f8 with no luck whatsoever, and i also disconnected from power supply and took out battery, and restarted, still starts up 'no funny noises or anything' and then just sits on 'please wait'.

Graphic Cards :: Updated To Windows 8.1 / Screen Stuck In Letter Box

Sep 15, 2014

To my own stupidity I decided to update my computer from Windows 8 to 8.1, every thing would be fine if not for the fact that my screen is now stuck as a letterbox.

The native for my monitor is 1920-1080 and was what I was running at pre-update, after restarting, my screen is confined to a letterbox setting. Changing the resolution does nothing, when looking for a solution I came across a post from this thread:

8.1 upgrade - generic video driver problem

I've got the same graphics card as the OP and have found the same events. My question is what did he mean when he said

"I deleted the AMD leaf-item (Control Panel, Display adapters, AMD Radeon HD 7650D)and rebooted the system." in post 3.

Did he go ahead and un-install it? Clarification on what he exactly done would be great.

btw, if I did go ahead and un-install my graphics card like the OP originally suggested, would it reinstall on restart?

Updates :: Network Failure After Loading Latest Updates To Win 8.1

Dec 10, 2013

I am trying to get things going with my Dell Venue 8 Pro, and I go through the initial setup fine. However, when I do Windows Update the network fails to connect after the following reboot.

When I look at the device/driver, it says it is working, but when I do a network troubleshooting it claims it must be a bad driver.

The driver doesn't seem to have been updated, based on the fact that the button to roll back is grayed out.

When I do a restore of my system, it works again until I do the Windows Update.

I have done this a couple of times, once with all updates, including the optional updates, and once downloading only the critical and important updates.

Other than doing each update individually, is there a reasonable way to figure out what is causing my issue?

Windows 8.1 Stuck In Restart Loop - Configuring Updates

Feb 19, 2014

So, since yesterday, Windows 8.1 tries to boot, then gets halfway through, shows a sad face for a second, and then restarts. It does this again and again. Just get the message "Failure configuring Windows updates. Undoing changes. Don't turn off your computer" then "Configuring Windows updates, 30% complete. Don't turn off your computer".

Then it boots, does the same thing again.

I've tried booting from the install media, but Refresh doesn't work, nor restarting in safe mode. Weirdly, pressing F2 to load BIOS, which always used to work, no longer does, it just continues trying to load Windows.

I've got an oldish PC, around 4/5 years old, with Windows 8 installed. Its got a fairly decent processor (at the time), a Q9550. Intel DP43TF motherboard.

Updates :: Windows Update Stuck At 0% And Post-refresh Lag

Aug 9, 2014

I had my notebook for about 7 months and it has worked fine for me. It's an hP winter blue with 4gb of ram. Today I force shut down the laptop, which I've done many times before, but this time it wouldn't reboot properly. So I had to refresh my PC. When it refreshed I noticed that it was EXTREMELY buggy and laggy and slow. Like it take 3-4 minutes to open a program or to close a window. I tried to update to windows 8.1 but it said I had to update my current windows. There's 102 updates but it stays at 0%....

Updates :: Windows Update Failed / Reverting But Stuck

Jul 18, 2014

Windows 8.1

PC got recovered on Tuesday, so had no updates on it. Installed and restarted the PC today, it installed so many percent and restarted. It then carried on installing them.

It the said that the updates had failed and that it was reverting and not restart the PC. It was stuck like that for an hour. So I restarted it and tried to get into safe mode using F8/Shift-F8, but it doesn't work goes back to the reverting updates screen. I have tried numerous times and Windows Recovery won't appear either.

I don't have a Windows disc. It is a Compaq PC and I can't lose any of the files.

Tablets :: Windows 8 Tablet Stuck On Failure Configuring Updates?

May 29, 2014

I have an Asus VivoTab Smart that comes with Windows 8, and before I can do the 8.1 upgrade, I have to install all 112 updates. This was going just fine until after it rebooted, and now it's been stuck on the "Failure configuring Windows updates, Reverting changes" screen for about the past 12+ hours. I restarted it a couple of times by holding down the power button, but it comes right back to the same screen after the Asus splash screen. Were this a laptop, I know exactly how to fix it (go to Advanced Recovery Options), but since it's a new tablet that I haven't yet connected its Bluetooth keyboard to, I'm basically stuck. I can't even boot to a flash drive because that requires a keyboard to get to the boot options.I don't have a keyboard attached to it and because the OS isn't loaded (can't get the Charms bar so I can restart it that way or boot into Safe Mode or anything.)

Stuck On (Failure Configuring Updates)

Aug 27, 2014

I attempted to update from windows 8 to windows 8.1, and it said that I need to finish all my other updates first.So I did that, and I left for a while (an hour or 2) and it was STILL UPDATING. I got intimate and shut the computer down using the power button and turned it back on only to be met by a screen that said "Failure configuring updates, reverting changes." I waited longer then before and it was just stuck there! I guess you can consider it frozen, but I can still change the brightness and the volume and the circle thing is still spinning. I can't access anything, no start menu no nothing, So my laptop is useless.

I've read online that I was supposed to wait longer, and that I should have done all the updates at once. But what has been done cant be undone, and now I need to get past this update screen. How do I undo the updates? I've tried safe mode and restoring it but it just takes me back to where I was before. If you need my model number or whatever, then tell me. I have an HP Laptop with Windows 8.

8.1 Laptop Stuck On Checking For Updates

Nov 16, 2013

Turned on my laptop earlier, and tried checking for updates. Saw around 250MB worth of updates, clicked install, and Windows Update locked up shortly afterwards. Restarted Explorer, and Windows Update still wasn't working, so I rebooted.

Tried checking for updates again, and now I'm stuck on that screen (the progress bar moves, but it's seemingly not finding updates).

What caused WU to freeze. My desktop (set up in basically the same exact way) handled it fine. I tried a Disk Cleanup (to cleanup WU files) and a reboot to no avail.

Updates :: Failure Configuring Windows Updates From Clean Install

May 24, 2014

After a BSOD and utter failure to boot (presumably a critical OS file damaged) I ran the recovery tools for a total factory reset.

Connected to the internet and worked for an hour or two, then tried a reboot. Windows update had 104 updates to process. It did them, then "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer"

This should take half an hour. After 90 minutes it has rebooted 5 or 6 times. It keeps reverting to the same "Failure configuring Windows updates. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer" message. Looks like it might want to reboot through each of those 104 updates.

I'm going to repeat the factory reset and the FIRST thing I will do is disable updates. I'm going to see how long I can work without any updates.

Maintenance :: Updated To 8.1 - Restore Back To Windows 8?

Nov 3, 2013

I made the mistake of updating to Windows 8.1 and now I have trouble connecting to the Wi-Fi at my university. It tells me I have access to internet but at the same time it tells me the DNS sever is not available. I have tried many things but I just can't get it to work. There are also some websites that don't display correctly or work the way they are supposed to. Google being one of them. I don't know what to do so I thought I would just restore to before I updated to 8.1. So I did, but it's still 8.1. I can't go back any further than to the day I updated. Is there any way?

Updated To Windows 8.1 - Scaling Is Off After Wake From Sleep

Jan 8, 2014

Asus Zenbook ux301LA, i5 Haswell, Intel graphics HD4400, Win 8.1 x64, 2560x1440 display. It came with Win 8, I updated to 8.1. After wake from sleep the scaling is way off, everything is tiny. So I can't use sleep, must do a full shutdown and restart to get back to normal resolution. Asus does not list any graphics drivers for 8.1, only 8. So I got a generic Intel HD graphics driver update from Intel but it didn't fix the issue.

The other strange thing is that it is time dependent. IOW if I wake it soon after I put it to sleep it restores to the correct resolution state. But if I wait longer it doesn't. I put it to sleep and woke it up multiple times and it seems like the change happens after it has been sleeping for about an hour... although I can't say for sure it is always exactly on that schedule. What could be changing in the system while asleep that would do this?

In a way this isn't a big deal since this thing boots up from full shutdown almost as fast as from sleep. But I had intended to use sleep without a password so I don't have to constantly enter that while home, but keep the password on full start up.

Updates :: Windows 8.1 - Error 0XC000021A After Optional Updates

Mar 13, 2014

I was reviewing my windows updates and saw two optional updates that were pending. First one was for MS office and it went through fine. Second one was some update to AMD vision control center. During that update screen flashed couple of times and went for re-start. After that I am unable to get into the system. I tried safe mode/debugging/low resolution mode etc.. But all resulted in the same blue screen with the 0xc000021a error message.

I am able to go only to command prompt. Nothing else (fortunately I am able to backup my photos by connecting external hard drive and using command prompt). I checked the SRT log file but it doesn't say any issue. All passed.

I tried refresh PC but it came back and said "There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes made".

I tried using win ISO image bootable flash drive. It couldn't get through me in (I just tried with PC repair option when I booted with ISO image).

Is there a way I can get over it without re-installing?

Updates :: Failure Configuring Windows Updates - Reverting Changes

Sep 15, 2014

I am currently having an issue on my laptop at the moment where it's stuck in an infinite loop of 'reverting changes' after having tried to update and failed at 30%, I have done some reading at ways to boot into safe mode however it would appear windows 8 doesn't give me the chance.

I do not have a copy of my original windows 8 disc and am at a loss!

I have tried spamming F4, F8, F10 buttons and none are allowing me to enter boot mode.

Updates :: Unable To Install Windows Updates Or MSI Files

Feb 16, 2014

So some background. I had issues with being able to install ANYTHING from an MSI file. Then I wasn't able to install any updates from Windows Update. I then reinstalled Windows, and am now facing the same issue after a few days. I would rather not reinstall yet again.

I tried doing System Restore, but it just hangs. Windows Installer hangs on "preparing to install".

Jun 21, 2014

I just bought new Asus Vivotab Smart Windows 8 tablet, after the very first windows update it failed to install some of the updates, and then after the reboot I am now stuck with the message "Failure configuring Windows updates, reverting changes".

It never gets any further than this, it never reverts, I have left it running for an entire day and have restarted several times.

This is a tablet, so there is no keyboard so I cannot press any F keys to get into recovery mode, and no CD to boot from etc.
