Why computer screen stays black how do i solve it


Repair your Windows installation:
Note Repairing your Windows installation may change the configuration of Windows. You may also have to follow this step if you complete all the troubleshooting in steps option 1 and the problem is not resolved.

  • Use the Windows XP CD-ROM to start your computer. On the Welcome to Setup screen, press ENTER to set up Windows XP.
  • Press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
  • Use the ARROW keys to select the Windows XP installation that you want to repair, and then press R.
  • Windows XP Setup repairs the installation files, Windows XP automatically restarts, and then the Setup program finishes the repair of your Windows XP installation.
Follow the remaining steps to set up Windows.

Note You must have your 25-character product key to complete these steps.
As soon as this issue is resolved, make sure that the firewall is enabled, and then visit the following Microsoft Web site to reinstall the latest updates:
http://update.microsoft.com/

  • Run a virus scan on the computer because problems with corrupted elements can be attributed to viruses.
  • Use a sytem utility tool like ReginOut to fix corrupt registry and windows files.
Hope this method works for you.

Hi follis_valpn,

If you are trying to install the Windows Update 937287, you will get this (configuring updates stage 3 of 3. 0% complete) message. If you are getting the message even after restarting the Computer, you may need to repair the Windows (using the installation Disc) or restore the Computer to an earlier date.

First you can try restarting the Computer in the Safe Mode and do the System Restore. To access the Safe Mode, please press and hold the F8 Key whlie restarting the Computer. Then, please click "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and "System Restore". Then, please select a restore point (Date) when the Computer was working correctly. This should restore the Computer to the selected date and fix the issue.

The, alternative option is to use the Windows Installation Disc and perform the "Repair" option.

The issue will be fixed after you perform any of the above steps. To avoid the issue in future (whlie doing the Windows Update), please download and install the Windows Update 937287 from Microsoft Download Center separately.

Below is the link to obtain the Update.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/b/d/3bd7db67-7a7a-4c16-b10a-e0eace7d9473/Windows6.0-KB937287-v2-x86.msu

Hope this helps..

Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya.

I was downloading windows automatic update and it updated to 83% and now if stuck there I have windows vista basic on a acer laptop anyone know how to fix this thank you


Please start the Computer and keep tapping the F8 key to access the Windows Advanced options.
Select Safemode.
Once you are in Safemode, follow the below procedure:

  1. Click Start, click Run, type services.msc, and then click OK.

    Note On a Windows Vista-based computer, click Start, type services.msc in the Start Search box, right-click services.msc, and then click Run as administrator.
  2. In the Services (Local) pane, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Stop.
  3. Minimize the Services (local) window.
  4. Select all the contents of the Windows distribution folder, and then delete them.

    Note By default, the Windows distribution folder is located in the drive:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution folder. In this location, drive is a placeholder for the drive where Windows is installed.
  5. Make sure that the Windows distribution folder is empty, and then maximize the Services (local) window.
  6. In the Services (Local) pane, right-click Automatic Updates, and then click Start.
  7. Restart the computer, and then run Windows Update again.
  8. That should resolve the issue.

You should try going to windows update and doing the updates manually one at a time. When one completes then do another till you find the one that is causing the problem. Then you can search the Microsoft data base for a solution to that one update.

Window vista is not booting the computer


Try starting in safe mode. If it does boot in safe mode then go to HELP, THEN SYSTEM RESTORE, pick a date before you had these problems. Good luck. You start in safe mode by pressing F8 then selecting SAFE MODE from the menu.

sounds like you're windows is corrupted use a windows install disk get to the part where you have choice to install windows or repair it and you can then run auto repair. If possible BACK UP anything you need before this and you will need to run updates afterwards as it overwrites many newer files

Powers up but windows wont start even with start up cd


You need to reload windows with the operating system cd.
Make sure you select to repair the current windows installation or update and don't select new installation unless you wish to lose all information and start fresh which may be your only option if the first does not work.
