How can I identify the update that causes the crashing and freezing in windows 8.1?

Try going to Control Panel, and then uninstall programs. You should have an option to see recently installed updates. Find your most recent updates, the ones that date when your computer crashed, and then uninstall them. Then instead of doing an automatic install actually view you're updates, and install them manually, One at a time. If you can't even get your computer to start up, you might try putting in your CD of Windows 8.1, or if you don't have that, your reboot disc, and have your computer boot from disc instead of boot from drive. To do that you would have to go into your bios by pressing F2, F5, or F8 right after you start your computer up, and that should take you into your bios, at which point you change your boot settings. Save your save your changes, and then keep trying to boot your computer back up. If you don't have a boot disk, you're going to have to take it to someone who does, like at Best Buy or another computer repair company.

Will not go pass windows updates stage 3 keeps restarting

Probably a stuck update.
Restart in safe mode (F8) and click on My computer / Hard drive (right mouse click) Under properties, select tools/ check volume for errors, it will schedule a check, reboot and let it check the drive

If this fails, try using system restore to go back to a time before it was updated OR

If you can get into safe mode, review what has been installed recently and uninstall it.

Try updating again

Your antivirus may be preventing the update, yoou could TEMPORARILY disable this and see if that helps

Laptop powers down 5 seconds after turning on

Straight forward method would be to download Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset from, write it to a bootable CD. Make your Laptop bootable from CD drive (ie. is change the sequence of booting. At present it will be booting from Hard disk.) Boot from the CD you just created. Check what is the problem. And possible repair can be done. Check this link.

But.. may be a little difficult.
And while I am at this, be careful when you take out a hard disk from one laptop and insert it in another laptop. Even though it is from the same manufacturer, it may not be compatible.
Another easier option would be to get hold of a desktop computer that is working. Get a cable which can be used to connect your laptop Hard disk to the desktop. A desk top allows multiple drives. This way you can get the laptop HDD as a seperate drive in your My computer, (like you see a pendrive or a CD drive. You can try reading this drive and copy content to the desktop. And burn it to a CD. May be a little more easier. If you have difficulty in reading the Laptop HDD, you can download one or the other programs that helps in reading corrupted drives. Good luck.

Make sure that your source disc is compatible with your drive. if it has a dvd, then you can use dvd disc.

Also, try to download and install the DVD/CD driver for your laptop.

Try to restore this to an earlier time using system restore, it should keep all of your files, but if you installed something recently it will not be there and many times this is the simplest solution.

Dell Inspiron 6000 Memory - Crash Problem

get yourself a 2.5 hard drive box (no hard drive in it) costs less than a tenner on ebay. Remove hard drive from current laptop, put it in box, connect to another laptop via usb provided and you will be able to read from it like it's a flash drive or cd. Then just copy files you need to other laptop or CD. No damage done to original hard drive. Put your hard drive back into laptop.

This part, am just taking a guess at but then see if you can do a system restore to a date previous to problems ie when you updated in case it was the update that caused the problem. If you had XP disk and ID number you could try a repair or a reinstall but that is pretty drastic. No way should you need a new computer

Let me know how you get on. IF you don't know what I mean by the HD box, just shout and I will be more specific

Good luck
