Q: Update Configuration

During the configuration of recent Windows update, the power on my lap top cut out completely. Since then the laptop is stuck showing "Configuring update: Stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete"

Then it just closes down and starts up again.

I cannot trace my System Disk.

Can anyone help please?

Thanks!

Hi, this is my first entry to this site so bare with me if i mess it up

a few months ago i let my sister borrow my laptop. when i got it back the next day i turned it on and it started up as usual but before it went to the desk-top it came up with-

configuring updates: stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete
please do not turn off your computer

this is nothing new but it stays on 0% for 1/2 minutes then restarts, goes back to this page and does the same again, round and round in a loop.

i left it running like this for a couple of days to see if anything happened but still the same

does anyone know how to fix this?

A:update configuration HELP

Possibly, your sister powered down the laptop during updates. Try system restore from recovery console:If you have Windows XP CD... (if you don't have Windows CD, scroll down)1. Boot from the CD.2. When the text-based part of Setup begins, follow the prompts. Select the repair or recover option by pressing R:3. You'll find yourself at this screen:4. Once you are at the Recovery Console you will be given at least one choice of Windows installations. Normally the choice you want is the number 1 choice. Click the number 1 key at the "top" of the keyboard and click enter.NOTE: at this point your numbers to the right of your keyboard are turned off. If you insist on using these keys for your numbers remember to hit the Numbers Lock key before clicking a number over there or your computer will automatically reboot and you will have to wait through the previous steps to get back to the console. 5. You will be given a message asking for the administrator password. Unless someone or something has messed with your computer there is no password so you just click the Enter key. 6. This will bring you to a prompt that says: C:\WINDOWS>7. Type: cd \ Press EnterNote: between "cd" and "\" there should be a "blank space" otherwise the command won't work8. The prompt should now say:C:\>9. Type: cd system~1\_resto~1Press Enter.===============================================================================Note: If it gives... Read more

Hey guys, I had an Updating issue recently and am still not clear on the best settings for the Update Settings?

I just installed a bunch of Optional and Recommended Updates, but was sure to exclude the Bad Guys for the W10 Upgrade stuff: KB3035583 and KB2952664

So I still don't know if this is the best or not. I was not accepting Optional and Recommended before, but since having this Update issue though I would change my actions.

This is my current setting:
1. ?Check for Updates but let me choose whether to download and install them? Is this good, or should I got with checking for them Manually.

Now wondering what this setting should be:
2. ?Give me Recommended Updates the same way I receive Important Updates?

Can someone shed some light on this for me? Thanks, Nasty7

I first had a dial up modem. I got frustrated with that, so I got DSL. I got a virus, so I purchased Norton Internet Security package with firewall, etc. via download. When I attempted to use the Live Update feature, I got this message:

Hi all,

Need some extra help here. I attempted to get the debugging tools to read the minidump files post-mortem, but can only get into safe mode, which doesn't help me. I've attached the zip of the output from the jcgriff2 app.

I'm not positive, but it may be related to an attempt to install Spanish & Japanese optional language packs to Windows 7 Ultimate installation alongside a recommended update.

Initially, it crashed during start up at the 'configuring windows' screen at 15% into it. Two system restores later to take me back two updates, and now it returns to the 'configuring windows' screen on startup and crashes at 0%. Not sure if additional system restores will do much good.

Thanks,

Had this problem on 2 machines; I read and tried all the fixes suggested on the internet; about a dozen of them over and over again.
Problem is the HARDDRIVE!
I had a fresh install and had the problem with existing harddrive.
Also had problem on an up and running computer about 4 months old; just never got around to fixing it.
I tried all the fixes on the new one to no luck. I know some windows setup settings look for certain hardware for some setup processes so I tried an old drive I have kicking around. I Cloned the new drive onto it and ran the computer and then SP1 and all worked. I cloned back to the new drive and about 187 updates have now installed. It's working perfectly.
I had the same problem on the second computer and cloned it onto a different drive and then to an SSD also; it worked on both drives; also had 187 updates install.
Even after reinstalling the OS twice and immediately trying the SP1 it still didn't work until I cloned to the older harddrives.

Help!
Had an incomplete install of a program...computer otherwise working fine...did a system restore to try to go back to preinstall...in the system restore shutdown and restart, now hung up in a update configuation loop that is in third step up to 99% that shuts down only to do the same thing over and over again. So my system never gets to the mainscreen acknowledging system was restored.
I tried F8 going to safe mode, but configuation step 3 takes over again, goes to 99% and shuts down to restart.
I tried the vista 64 sp1 disc...cannot acccess another restore point since it says the system is already in restore mode....just never gets there with the endless 3rd step update configuration loop.
The disc also does not offer the repair/update mode as an option...only full install.
I do have norton ghost 14 on the system...so there is a complete backup file on another internal drive...but no way to get to it to initiate a recovery.
VERY FRUSTRATING!!!
Could time remedy the situation...letting the computer lay idle for a few days...then try to boot up??? I've heard that this on occaision could work with Vista.
Any other thoughts???
Thanks!

BTW, computer is a hp desktop with Vista Ultimate 64 sp1, 4 gb ram, and intel dual core processor, with a bunch of bells and whistles.

Hi,

I have an Acer netbook running windows 7 starter...for several days each time I close the laptop there are updates that attempt to install but fails to do so for some reason...there are also issues of configuration,seemingly every time I start the laptop.

I have read the uploader tool page but before going through this process would like to ask why the laptop fails to update ? ...I recently got rid of any microsoft office programs...does this have anything to do with the failure to update ?

below are the updates that have failed several times ... sorry but the image is very small !

A:Windows 7 update failures and configuration issues.

It`s a couple of days since I posted the above but the updating failure continues...I`ve no idea if the failure is caused by this laptop not in fact having the required internal programs to ensure the updates are accepted...something is obviously not right.

edit ti add...maybe the laptop just doesn`t need these updates...?

Installation cannot proceed."I tried to install Windows 7 in a new partition but the process reaches 27% this time and stops with same error.I've reformatted my hard disks completely and installation process reaches 99% then stops with same error.I checked BIOS settings and found only DVD and HDD listed (no third option).the Microsoft suggestion about the registry tweaking did not apply for me (and I tried to install a fresh copy from scratch).I'm using 2 HDD in RAID0 configuration and works OK with Windows Vista, I did load the drivers to Windows 7 during installation but still getting same problem, any suggestion???

Simple solution found for Dual Boot errors!
 
 Here is an update. Since no one else has seemed to find a solution I actually managed to find my own. Just to recap you on what had happened to me, I was trying to dual boot Windows 7 x64 with Windows Vista Ultimate x64. Somewhere in my use with Vista my BCD was corrupt/deleted and caused this error to appear. (Windows could not update your computer's boot configuration.) After searching my computer I found the registry settings were correct, and file access to the folder that contained the BCD was correct, However my BCD was corrupt/missing and so I was unable to finish the installation and get my computer to dual boot. I found this out by typing bcdedit.exe in command with admin access and it gave me the warning "BCDedit.exe could not be run. BCD is either corrupt or missing".
 
In order to fix this it was quite simple. I had to use the original installation disc for vista to repair my computer's boot files. Unfortunately I didnt have an install disc that would work with vista since I purchased mine before SP1 came out, so in order to repair it I had to create a slipstream disc with the SP1 updates added to it. after repairing I instantly was able to see both Windows 7 and Windows Vista in my boot manager when I restarted my computer. I easily fixed and finished installation with out a hitch, and I'm now staring at internet explorer inside of Windows 7 typing this message. I hope this will help anyone else ou... Read more

After that I have been getting the msg "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed.

So yesterday automatic Windows update installed IE10, today I noticed that links in certain applications open in IE10 instead of my configured default browser, which every link from this or any other application used to open in before that update and the reboot that followed the update.
I checked the Default Programs section in the system control panel, expecting maybe Microsoft wanted to get themselves in any more trouble with the EU and changing the default to IE. This was not the case however, all the associations were still pointing to the configured default browser, I noticed however I could not uncheck the defaults already set.
So despite the obvious configuration being correct, links would still open in IE10 even after yet another reboot.
I went ahead and checked the registry associations, and found that http(s) protocol as well as htm(l) filetypes were associated with Internet Explorer with various EditFlags set (presumably to prevent changing them through the user interface, or to ignore the user interface settings).

Seriously Microsoft? Don't you have enough trouble yet?

I have a Samsung laptop a few years old - Core i7, 2TB HDD, 8gb Memory. It was supplied with Windows 7 and I have the W7 installation dvd that came with it.

Over the years I have booted from this DVD and re-installed a fresh copy of W7 several times with no problems whatsoever.

A few months ago I succumbed and upgraded to Windows 10 - no problems - it all ran fine.

I wanted to go back to W7 so I deleted all partitions on the HDD, booted from the W7 DVD as usual. Selected country:UK and created a new partition on the HDD (whole of the HDD). Files were copied to the HDD in the usual manner, Windows 7 installed up to 100%, then onto features etc. The installation went with no problems up to the fourth step - installing updates. I though it was a few seconds away from completion and re-boot. However, I then got the message 'Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration'.

Repeated several times, deleting and re-creating partition on the disk but the same happened.

In the end, I installed Windows 10 on the HDD by booting from a USB stick with W10 on and it installed no problems.

Anyone got any idea what it going on? It looks like my install of W10 has changed the disk somehow so W7 cannot ever be installed again on the disk.

I have an old P3 system that I let my son use for internet browsing, email, etc. It has been rock solid for 6+ years until lately and I think the issue of not booting properly is that the master CD-ROM gave up the ghost. And so I took that out hoping that is all it will take.

Here is my question (and I feel so much like a noob; I did try to google but I got nothing): Where do I place the tab to take it from slave to single configuration? As slave the tab was placed on the far left in the verticle position. Am I correct in that to make it singular I need to place it horizontally on the bottom two prongs center-right?

I hope I am making myself clear. This is an old system and it has been years since setting it up and I don't have my manuals anywhere. I couldn't even access Buslink's website.

Thanks for your help.
 

A:CD-RW Configuration - from slave to single configuration?

The jumper will fit on the pins, based on what is imprinted or embossed on the drive. It is usually very difficult to see... but if you use a flashlight or other device you can place at different angles, you can see how the jumper choices are stamped into the metal. Most often the center two are Slave, the right is Master, and the left is Cable Select.
I suggest you jumper it as master.
If it is a known brand, you can find a drawing on the website of the optical drive manufacturer.

Hello all.
Running windows 10 pro 64 bit.
I've updated from Version 1511 to the anniversary update, 1607.
Or at least, I thought I did.
The update went well, no hiccups, no errors. Used windows update, let it downloaded and install and rebooted. Alas, system still shows OS Version 1511.
Used update again, same thing, rebooted, 1511.
Went to the windows site, downloaded the windows10upgrade9252.exe, ran it, same exact issue, rebooted, still showing version 1511.
Error logs show no issues. Disabled all external drives, turned off anti-virus, etc, repeated, rinsed, rebooted, still version 1511.
Only think I've not done is burned an ISO to DVD and updated from that.
Any clues as to what's going on?
Thanks!

Hi
I've recently fitted a 128Gb SSD to my PC. I've re-installed Windows7 on the SSD and re-connected the old HDD. Everything is working fine but I've noticed that the space on the SSD is decreasing rapidly as I reload all my usable programs.
My question is: Can I configure this PC so that only Windows resides on the SSD and all other programs are loaded onto the HDD (which has loads of space) So is it possible to run programs currently in C:\Program Files (X86) from the HDD.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Hello!

Let's jump right into it.
I am unable to connect to the internet, and I can't figure out why.
In Google Chrome, it says "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET". My network icon has a yellow triangle.
I connect through LAN with an ethernet cable. I don't have admin access to my router. It is a LinkSys and I can successfully view the login page through 192.168.1.1 . I am using Windows 7.
My friend's computer, when plugged into the same ethernet port, has zero problems. I tried different ethernet cables and the problem persisted.
This happens with both my PC and laptop. I use an ethernet switch to connect both of them to one wall port. Of course I have tried plugging each of them in directly. The problem persists.

When I reboot my computer, new networks appear randomly and seem to stop when it hits "Network 4". Seems like it fails to remember the old network that it was on.. (see pic in next post)

Automatic troubleshooting is unable to identify any problem.

I have since tried merging the network locations and, using an elevated command prompt, running:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /all
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew
netsh int ip set dns
netsh winsock reset

and then restarting my computer. This worked for one day until I restarted again. The same fix no longer works.

For whatever reason, I have to reset the video configuration each time I open the player for a movie, because it will not retain those settings once the player is closed.

This caused me to look for a means of setting these value permanently. I found two files that are involved to an extent....vlcrc and the vlc-qt-interface.ini. The former appears to be a fairly large file with a lot of options, but almost every line is preceded with a #, with I assume means that it is commented out. Scrolling through the "options", I didn't find anything so as I could set contrast, brightness, hue, saturation or gamma.

The latter file appears to be a more active file, but is much, much more brief, and I don't see anything that I need there either.

Does anyone really understand how these could be used to accomplish what I want?

It happens with me as well. Everytime I reopen VLC to play any media, it will never retain any settings. I guess that's how its designed to work.

I'm considering to buy the new Abit KX7-333 mobo soon which has 4 DIMM slots and i wanted to know, would there be a difference if i bought 4 x 128mb PC2100 DDR DIMMS compared to 2 x 256mb in performance in relation to "memory interleaving options"?

The 128mb is slightly cheaper the 256mb version by about £5 each and PC2700 is too expensive and not worth it atm.
 

A:DDR RAM Configuration

The only difference I've seen is that when you decide you want to double the memory again, you'll have to replace all the modules rather than just adding two more. Otherwise I haven't ever seen or read of any performance gain or loss from either option. I haven't seen any test results of any comparisons either. Then again I never really thought about it as I've always tried and recommended going for the two stick option rather than four so it is easier and cheaper to upgrade the RAM later.

No go. So I'm thinking it's memory.

My computer was built by IBuyPower, a company that I'll never buy another laptop from again, and I question their competancy in building a machine.

Please could someone tell me if there's any way i can have 2 dpi configurations on the same computer one for his user account and one for mine. Thank You.

Right now I have two hard drives, a DVD-rom drive, and a CD-RW drive. The two hard drives are on one IDE and the two CD-roms on the other (one master, the other slave). I have read a few posts in which people have said it is better to have a hard drive and CD-rom on an IDE and so on. I am wondering if that is what I should do and would my current configuration be causing the slow transfers I am getting when I copy things between drives? Thank you.

I have an assignment to design and build a network. There is one router with ethernet interfaces only. One interface services the LAN. An external user (PC) is directly connected to the other ethernet interface. The external user will have an IP address different to the LAN. The task is to implement a NAT to allow the external user to access the LAN and LAN users to access the external user. I will be learning about NAT in several weeks but my need is right now. I have researched NAT and cannot find anything helpful. Does anyone have a solution to my problem.

Hello everyone! Im gonna build a gaming computer that can handle alot of games at highest quality settings.

Motherboard: ASUS Crosshair IV Formula, Socket-AM3

Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition
CPU Cooler: XIGMATEK Red Scorpion S1283
Thermal Paste: Arctic Silver 5
RAM: Kingston ValueR. DDR3 1333MHz 6GB, CL9
DVD: Samsung DVD±RW Burner, SH-S223C
Total: (In Euroes €) 952,40€

Can i get any better "build" for this price ? If, so please let me know.
/WBR - TheMetalSE
 

A:My New PC Configuration.... [Need Help]

i dont think 2x3gb sticks of ram exist for 6gb total...
your heatsink will come with thermal paste which is good, i got a xigmatek s963 for my 955 black edition - but its your choice
buy a standard clocked 6870, that card wont be worth the money, you can overclock it in MSI afterburner to the turbo edition easily
the only thing with the case is the huge mesh that doesnt filter dust, but if it isnt very dusty where you keep it then no worries
with an nzxt hades case + xfx graphics card i could come up to 850 euro's

Hi all
I am planning for a new pc..a high performance once..really confused in selecting a processor..which one will be best? Intel P4 Core 2 Duo 2.2 Ghz or a 3.4 GHz Dual Core(with a 4 GB RAM and motherboard Intel 945)? Pls advice
 

A:Regarding Configuration

If you plan on doing any virtualization, get a processor (Intel or AMD) that supports the Intel or AMD virtualization technology (i.e. with the instruction support) x86 virtualization.

I do like the 4GB RAM! Stay with it regardless of processor you decide to get.

Intel 945 processor may not support virtualization though - check the article in the above link.

I have been very happy with XP (mostly desktops) and have completely avoided Vista for our company. I have no experience with Windows 7. I am ready to upgrade our sales personnel to laptops and am wondering if I will be happy with the speed of the following setup:

Intel Core 2 Duo 1.66 GHz
2 GB RAM (considering upgrade to 4GB)
Windows 7 Pro

The computers are used mainly for email, a little bit of internet, printing, office documents, etc.. They will be taking these computers to accounts so startup speed is a little bit of a factor.

Will this hardware configuration perform adequately or will it bog down with Windows 7.

Thanks

Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone can help me with a problem I have with getting a VPN to work. A friend of mine wants to be able to share his Outlook 2007 Business Contact Manager Database with remote PC's. I've set up the Office Computer to allow incoming connections and configured the router to accept incoming connections over the internet. I can establish a connection from the client computers but cannot acces any of the shared files etc. Below are some settings that may help.

BT Voyager 220v Router
LAN IP 192.*****
WAN IP 86.*****
Office PC IP 192.*****
Primary DNS 194.*****
Secondary DNS 62.****
I've set the LAN IP as the DMZ host and enabled Port Forwarding to the Office PC. I've also opened up port 1723 (which I believe needs to be opened for VPN connections to work?)

The client uses 86.180.149.35 to connect to the Office and this works fine. Is there something fundamental that I am missing here?

Please let me know if you require any further information.

Thanks in advance.

In your case, you need to put your local LAN subnet in the trusted zone for ZA, and sharing will work.

I just installed ssd in my computer and it doesn't show up in the explorer - I'm assuming that's because it isn't formatted yet. So I went into the computer management screen and the ssd is there as "not initialized". A dialog came up saying the ssd disk must be intialized before the logical disk manager can access it - there were 2 choices for intializing: MBR or GPT. I am not sure which one I should go for.
Or should I leave it to windows 7 to format it when I install win7 on the ssd?

Is there a way to configure the QoS so I can play CS without disturbance and not to mess the internet for others.

Ok here is my situation........I have set my computer address at 192.168.x.x, I am behind a Linksys 4 port Cable/Dsl router which has a gateway address of 192.168.1.x, I also have cable access. My question is when I go out to the internet I always get an address of 65.206.x.x, I play alot of games and also use Roger Wilco, I have no problems playing games but I can NOT figure out how to get people to connect to me, for example when I use Roger Wilco and set up a server it tells me my address is 192.168.x.x, I know that is not really my address that is just the address of my workstation, what do I tell people? what address do I give them? I am pretty familar with port forwarding but that does not seem to work.......I have asked this question many times and I cannot seem to get a straight answer, here is a list of the "status" screen of my linksys router and yet not anywhere is that 65.206.x.x address, where is that comming from, please someone help me!! let me know if you need more info.

You need to do port forwarding on your router. Set it up to forward requests from the 65.206.x.x address to your internal 192.168.1.x address with the correct port or ports for the game. The port number should be in the game documentation.

Hi, Just after a bit of advice...

I have an MSI K8N Neo4 Platinum motherboard with 4 dimm slots and 2 matching pairs of 512MB doublesided PC3200 DDR ram to fill them with...

If I install all 4, I can have 2GB of memory, running in dual channel mode - but, due to restrictions of the motherboard/processor/nvidia chipset (depending on where you read), the 400MHz RAM speed gets adjusted down to 333MHz...

My alternatives are to install just 2, meaning I'd have 1GB 400MHz memory running in dual channel mode, or 1.5GB 400MHz memory running in single channel mode.

I'm sure there will be limited difference between the options, but if anyone has any ideas on what my best bet would be, I'd be grateful (I currently have all 2GB installed).

For the record, I'm using the computer for general word processing/Internet and gaming, but also for home recording, if that has any bearing.

Thanks, Jake

P.S. I searched the forums on this topic and found someone with a similar dilemma, but in that case the choice was between 4GB at 333MHz and 2GB at 400MHz, which I imagine has less impact on the overall performance of the PC. Anyway, hope you don't mind me asking again
 

A:Best RAM configuration?

So you're saying you have 400 mhz PC3200 installed with 4 Chips totaling 2GB running at 333 Mhz? Right? Does your BIOS have an advanced area where you can tweak it? If so you might have to adjust some voltage to the RAM and set it to run at 400 Mhz

Hi. I don't know what has happened but my pc is running strangely recently. For example, I can't install the visual c redistributable (vcredist.exe), or directx 9.0c, and some games don't work which did a while ago - now they crash to the desktop. I haven't got a restore which fixes the problem. It is all a bit strange.
I've got windows 7 64 bit on a Dell vostro - i7 860, 4g ram etc.
I've tried microsoft security essentials, all manner of spyware removers including spyware search & destroy to no avail.
What should be the next step in investigating this?
Thanks for any help!

A:can't install visual c redistributable, or directx 9.0c, can't update - security update for visual c++, system update...

Microsoft Windows 7 already has DirectX 11, so installing version 9 will always fail and is useless. It also has VC++ redistributable 2005 and 2008. The latest version which is not included on Windows 7 is VC++ 2010 redistributables which you should install (but very few games are designed in VC++ 2010 today). When games fail, they create a crash report or log. You should go through them and try to find the possible cause. What message do games show when crashing?Check Event Viewer to find the possible cause of crashing of a game.
