The updating time depends upon the size of the update files and these can be very large, also your Internet connection speed. The download site may provide the download progress ie remaining download time, the amount of data left to download and maybe the download speed.

    Since the laptop is brand new I should think that it could handle an update in reasonable time. I have Xfinity internet and have a desktop dell that I have no problems with speed or connection.

A failure in updating could happen when you suddenly get disconnected or downloaded corrupted data which happens a lot. And it seems that there is no local check to ensure that the file is actually complete. It just attempts to install the downloaded material even if its not complete. The stupid thing is that even though you try to update again, it just checks the cache, see that its there and won't bother redownloading the files.

Therefore when you face such a scenario, you could take these steps to solve your problems:

  1. Open Command Prompt by Start -> Run and type "cmd"
  2. On the Command Prompt, type "net stop wuauserv". This is done so that you will terminate the windows automatic update service to allow us to delete the cache files
  3. Still on the Command Prompt, type "cd /d %windir%" or "cd\windows"
  4. Type "rd /s SoftwareDistribution"
  5. Thats it, the cache has been purged. Now we need to restart the windows automatic update service again. To do that, type "net start wuauserv"
Thats all. Its simple right? Good luck.

You can sometimes you can use Win 7 drivers for the audio, found on the HP website: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?os=4062&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&sw_lang=&product=3837660#N231 ,for your onexant High-Definition SmartAudio 221 . That said, you may have to change the compatibility of the driver to WINdows 8, you did not say 32 or 64, and install it to your audio device. Have you notices other devices in Device Manager that are not working properly? I had a similar situation, Audio, Modem, Card Reader, when I upgraded an old (2005) Gateway MX6421 to Win 7 pro N 64 I had to locate the drivers, (from a HP site), change a few lines of code in the drivers and change compatibility to Win 7.

E430 laptop i have just bought from staples does it have a modem built in or do i need to purchase a wireless modem cannot get connected to the internet


Which 'E430' ????

This model-name is used by ACER & TOSHIBA & EMACHINES.

Why not ask STAPLES for the specifications?

Or, read the manuals that came with the computer.

Or, access 'www.acer.com' or 'www.toshiba.com' or 'www.emachines.com', and read the specifications from the web-site.

Given that you _just_ purchased it, it's quite "normal" that _any_ brand-new computer _will_ have a wireless adapter.

2 nights in a row when shutting down windows updates took forever to install, why so long


Hello there!

As i see you are using laptop for that, well when downloaded a lot of updates at the same time there is a lot of time needed for all of that to install and configure, don't worry that process should be sorted out soon, when there are no new updates awailable.

Remember, its great thing to keep yourself updated! =)

Hi there , yes it is mother board problem. But $399 is really too expensive for 2 years old laptop. I suggest you buy a new updated laptop & take out the HDD from the old laptop. Visit a service center & tell them you want to make that HDD for external using purpose. They will fix it for you & maximum 30 $ they charged for it. So you get a updated laptop & your all old data with external HDD. Now why i suggest you for a new laptop. If you pay 399$ for motherboard then you can use it. But again if you feel some thing wrong in other parts then you go for buy that. Finally when you make a total cost you will see a new laptop prize. Hope you understand my meaning.
Thanks &waiting for your feedback.

Misrepresented product?


No manufacturing process is flawless. These things happen. Return to staples for an exchange. Most managers will exchange ink even after the 14 days. If they dont, then buy new ones and recycle the nonworking ones for $3 on your rewards statement. I have seen people come back the same day after they bought a brand new HP ink cartrige beucase it does not work. Its not that they had the wrong cartridge, its just that it was a bad one.
