How do i fix windows update error 1722


Hi,
According to the error code 1722, it is actually a windows installer error. What we need to do is to fix the Windows Installer.
Try the following fix below...
(Please note that before trying any of the solutions below, you must be logged into your computer as an Administrator.)
  • Check whether Windows Installer engine is functioning.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, type MSIExec and press Enter. MSI refers to the Windows Installer.

  3. In the MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages. However, if you see an error message, note down the error. Search for it in a search engine such as Google to find troubleshooting solutions.

  4. Now try to install or uninstall the program again. If the problem persists, go to the next fix.

  • Check that Windows Installer service is not disabled.

  1. Click Start and type service.msc in the Search box and press Enter.

  2. The Services window is opened. Right-click on 'Windows Installer' service, then click 'Start'. The service needs to start without any errors.

  3. Now try to install or uninstall your program again. If it persists, try the next fix.

  • Check for latest version of Windows Installer.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. Once the command prompt window opens up, type MSIExec and press Enter. If MSI engine is working, you should see no error messages, and it should open a separate dialog box, which shows the MSI version.

  3. If the installer version doesn't show as version 4.5, download the latest version athttp://support.microsoft.com/kb/942288/

  4. Now try to install or reinstall your program again. If it still persists, try the next fix.

  • Reregister the installer engine.

  1. Click Start > Accessories > Command Prompt.

  2. At the command prompt, first type MSIExec / unregister, then press Enter and type MSIExec / regserver

  3. Now try to install or reinstall your program again.

  • Clean your CD or DVD media.

  1. If you are trying to install the program from a CD or DVD media, use a CD or DVD disc cleaning kit.

  2. You can also gently wipe the silver side of the disc with a soft, lint-free cotton cloth. Make sure you do not use paper or other rough cloth as this can scratch the plastic or leave streaks that can damage the disk. Make sure you wipe the disk from the center outward and not circular motion.

  3. If you use a damp cloth or commercial disk cleaning solution, wipe the disc thoroughly before inserting into the drive.

  • Copy installation files to your computer.

  1. If you are using a removable or external media to install the program, copy the installation files from there to your computer's hard drive and then run the installation file from that location. It is usually called autorun.exe or setup.exe. If you are not sure, just check the Readme file in the setup folder about how to start the installation.

  2. Unless there is no .exe file present in the setup folder, we do not recommend that you run .msi files directly.

  • Terminating other programs running on your computer.

  1. Click Start and type msconfig in the Search box.

  2. One the 'General' tab, click 'Selective startup', then click to clear the 'Load startup items' checkbox.

  3. Click 'Services' tab, click 'Hide all Microsoft services', and then click 'Disable all'.

  4. Click OK, then click Restart.

  5. After the computer restarts, try to run your program installation.

  6. Once you have finished troubleshooting the problem, restart your computer again.

  7. Click Start, type msconfig in the Search box. Click on the 'General' tab, click 'Normal startup', click OK, then click Restart.

    Hope this helps!

My farmville will load but within a few seconds it will tell me to refresh the page i have done this over and over again. i have played from diffrent browsers, updated internet browser, updated flash. iit...


Thank you for your question.

Try going to http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ and download the "Adobe Flash Player." This will update your current player and may solve the problem.

You may also want to consider expanding the video memory in your computer. (I was surprised to find out that it only cost me $18.99 plus shipping to expand the video memory on my computer.)

Doing these two things should solve the problem and get you ready for newer online games that are coming out in the future.

Gateway M520X Plus will not power up?


This is a sample of what you can try to do to diagnose a non-starting computer, If these don’t work, realize that most likely a system board (motherboard) has failed or the actual power trim strip above the keyboard has failed.

  1. Unplug the computer, then take the battery out, push the power button and hold it for about 30 seconds. Plug the system back in (leave battery out) and push the power button. If it starts, Great! If not unplug go to the next step.
  2. You should still have the battery out and the power unplugged. Now turn the laptop over. Take off all the covers and pull out the hard drive and ram and wireless card. Find the screw that has a symbol kind of like this its the CD rom drive screw. Now pull the drive out. Pick one stick of ram and put it back in the computer. Flip it over open it plug it in and hit the power button. If it does not fire up then unplug it and switch the ram. Plug it back in and hit the power button again. If it doesn't start up, unplug the computer and go to the last step.
  3. Pull the memory out and find the screws that hold the keyboard on. There are symbols in the plastic there should be 2 screws holding it in. Now in the battery compartment, there are several screw at the back edge of the computer take them out and also the ones in the battery in the center strip. Some are silver and some are black. Once you have the screws out of the battery area flip the computer over and open the lid. The strip just below the LCD with the power button and controls will now be able to be lifted up. You will probably have to lightly get an edge started before it will come up. There should be several little cables hooked to it. Flip the control panel over and look for some screws holding the keyboard in. I think there's 2. Lift up the keyboard. Making sure there's nothing touching anything important and then plug the computer in. Carefully hit the power button and see if the computer tries to start. If it does try it will probably beep at you. Unplug it and put a stick of ram in it. Plug it in and try to start it again. If not, unplug the computer and Go to the next step.
  4. Carefully put the keyboard and control strip in place. Flip the computer over and loosen all the screws that hold the computer together. Flip the computer over again and pull the keyboard and control strip up again. Flex the inner aluminum plate that was under the keyboard lightly. Plug in the computer and then hit the power button. If it tries to start, Great! put it together again in the reverse process.
If it does not, there are 2 possible things I would suspect the Control strip or the mainboard. If you don't get the computer to start back up please put it back together so you remember where all the screws go. Even if you plan to get another mainboard put it back together.
