My acer laptop when I boot it up it keeps wanting to do the updates. It will not boot all the way up to desktop, keep on shutting back down & restarting. What can I do without buying some bootup software to correct the problem?

Re: Acer laptop bootup problems
Please try and bootup your computer in safe mode by pressing the F8 Button just before windows starts to load. a menu appears and you just need to select the safe mode option and see how it goes from there.

It sound like the laptop is booting up and then BSOD (blue screen of death). If you press F8 on bootup and try booting in safe mode, or load a restore point (depending on your recovery options). This will help to determine the problem.
Try installing you windows disk or recovery disk you can try doing a repair ( you might have to access the bios and going into CMOS setting and changing bootup order CDROM first) but you will probably end up reloading windows (this will format the HDD and you will loose any data on it).
If this doesn't work then it probably is a hardware problem.
This unfortunately happens a lot, back up you data on to an external hard drive or make an image (various software can do this) and keep it safe for when it does happen again. Good luck!
Try booting into safe mode. When the computer is just starting, tap the F8 key and keep tapping it until the safe mode options come up. Select "Last Known Good Configuration" and let it continue booting from there. Once inside Windows, check Windows Update to see if your computer had tried to install update KB977165. This recent update has been known to cause problems in XP, including the dreaded BSOD (Blue Screen of Death), due to malware infections. You may want to try the ESET online scanner on your machine and possibly Malwarebyte's Antimalware, available at www.download.com. Always keep running the scans until your computer comes up clean.
Hello. Vista needs a repair. You will want to start by putting in your own vista disc or borrowing one from someone. If your laptop isn't booting from the disc, then enter the bios (by hitting f2 or f12 usually) at bootup and select the DVD/CD rom drive to boot first. When the vista disc loads you will want to select recovery tools. Then select "startup repair". That should fix your problem.
