Question about HP Pavilion a630n (PC109A#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

A 630 N computer, was updating the system with Windows update online, and we had a power failure. Upon power restore, the green light comes on and the power supply fan runs, but I guess the motherboard is not telling the power supply to send power to the other components? That is what it seems like. I got a new Power Supply but it is the same with both. Any ideas? Thanks!

    No UPS. Although I left it alone for a few hours and when I came back, it worked fine. I finished updating windows, and it turned off and on fine. Now this morning it is not turning on. The motherboard is what is dooing it, although intermittent obviously. Too bad it's a good computer otherwise. Guess I ought to look into a UPS.

When I turn on my computer it takes me to a gray screen declaring a failure to update windows successfully and just restarts repeats and routinly has become stuck in firsts level of computer hell.

Hi Leonard Fazio,
Have you tried going into Safe mode and the settings, control , uninstall programs - select show updates and then remove last update.
another way is to select system restore while in safe mode and restore to an earlier version depends on what o/s you have. Search for it in control panel or settings. While in Safe mode.

Automatic updates/ network adaptor goes missing / magically returns after system restore

Where is the Network Adapter originating from? Windows? If the Update is a Windows update, Hide the update. It may be an error, it's happen to me on a HP Network Adapter, When I installed it the Ethernet Adapter would not work, I rolled-back the driver on the Ethernet Adapter and it worked perfectly. I "Hide" the Windows update in Windows Updates.

After automatic updates and a restart, diagonstic lights A & C were yellow and D & B green, nothing comes up on screen, this happen before after an update but i got it to start after several a

If all diagnostic lights are on, then that means that it has something with the software of your computer. The update has affected some of the programs inside your computer thus it's booting up fine.

I suggest that you access safe mode and do a system restore from there. If you don't know how to access safe mode, then follow these:

1. Turn off your computer.
2. turn it on and keep tapping F8 until you see the options. You should see safe mode.
3. Use the arrow keys to select safe mode, then press enter.
4. Your computer should boot up to safe mode.
5. Access the system restore. You can find it in accessories, system tools, system restore. or you can search.
6. restore your computer to the known good date where your computer was still working fine.
7. After completing the on screen procedures, let your computer restart by itself (it may take minutes or more). It will restart and it should boot to the normal windows.

Good Luck!

I hope this helps.

Failure configuring windows updates Reverting changes do not turn off your computer....I am stuck here...What do i do? windows 7 ultimate 64

If the computer appears to be frozen in a program, the update will not do you any good.
Depending on how long you waited, I would invoke the task manager and see what process is hung up.
press ctrl/alt/del simultaneously only once, the task manager screen should appear, select the bottom option.
When the window pops up, select the far left tab (applications or programs) and see which is running or which is not.
If there is one or more that are not responding, terminate them by selecting them and clicking on the button end program.
You will get a warning, acknowledge it and continue.
If this was holding up your system, you should be able to restore your system to an earlier point using system restore.
If your system is COMPLETELY unresponsive, then you have no choice but to shut it down. hold the power button for 5 sec (default power down)
when the system comes back up, it will ask you how you would like to boot, (safe mode normal mode.....)
Select normal boot up.
Restore your system to the last restore point.
When your system is again functioning properly, create your new restore point, then try the update again.

Good luck

Downloaded windows automatic update stuck on 3 of 3 for last few days. tried last known good config does nothing, i always return to updating 3 of 3 cannot get my comp to do anything else. help desperately...

An issue has been identified by Microsoft that, after installing Windows Updates, a Computer displays a Configuring updates: stage 3 of 3. 0% complete message, reboots, comes back to that message again, and repeats the cycle. This problem occurs when Windows Update is attempting to install update 937287.

Follow this procedure to resolve the error:

1. Remove all connected peripheral Devices from the Computer.

2. Press and hold the power button until the Computer completely shuts down.

3. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet.

4. Leave the Computer without any power for at least 30 seconds.

5. Reconnect the Computer to the power supply and then turn it back on.

6. Allow the Computer to start normally.

NOTE 1: Once the Computer has completely started into the Operating System, Windows Updates should automatically finish installing the update. If the update again fails to install completely, restart the Computer in Safe Mode (by tapping the F8 Kay at Start-up) and use the System Restore feature to return the Computer to a time before the issue started.

Click the Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore.

NOTE 2: To avoid this issue, obtain and install update 937287 from the Microsoft Download Center separately from all other updates on the Windows Update site. Install the update that applies to your version of Windows Vista so that you can successfully install future updates.

For more information about this error, refer to the Microsoft KB Article ID 949358.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just did a windows update on shut down - when I came back to restart my computer, t would not turn on and there is a green light in the back that is blinking?

The green light is more than likely on your NIC (You are on a network)

It is off right? unplug it ... wait about 10 mintes, plug it back in ... try again.

If it will not start up ... you can try a bootable disk and try to restore ... but that is a question for another day.

Thanks for using

Online computer TV boots my system

Try a Windows system restore. Go to the start menu then to the help and support center, from there click on "restore my pc to an earlier date" windows update automatically creates backups before it installs so there shouldbe one just before your last update.
