Try booting to "SAFE MODE" then see how much free space is left on the hard drive.
Also in safe mode, defragment the HDD if you have not do so in awhile.
You need a minimum of 15% free space for XP oe ME to run.

Re boot in safe mode and run 'restore point' from the search box. Select a date/time just before the problem update happened. That will reset your date/time to before the update.

Configuring updates dont stop


I'll assume last known good configuration didn't work, if you press f8 and choose disable automatic restart on failure, you should see the blue screen of death with more info, when you reboot the next time,(you may have to hold in power button for 5 secs), press f8 and see if Repair my computer is listed on the Microsoft Startup menu, if not, insert a windows vista disk and restart,booting to the cd(should happen automatically, but look for a prompt to press a key) choose your language, then choose repair my computer, choose the windows installation, and you can try to use system restore to go back before the uodates were installed and updated, then disable automatic updating so it doesn't repeat.

I have a T5224 e machine. It has bee cycling on the configuration update:3 out of 3 93% complete since this morning. After that appears on the screen, the screen goes blank and boots up, but goes right...


Hi,

I am ArmyMason. Sounds to me you are getting a BSOD. This is most likely a hardware issue and I would look at downloading a "free Hardware Diagnostic testing software", (Google it). Their are many out there and some are better than others. If you can't find anything I would suggest starting with the RAM, remove a chip and try install, if that doesnt work try the other chip. Also try and remove unnessassary hardware like extra video card, NIC, Modem, or any other thing that could conflict with the installation. Best bet is to burn a bootable CD Hardware diagnostic tester and run it to find the issue.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

My emachine is stuck cycling at start up


no computer is trash when you are dealing with a software issue.

boot up and tap on the f8 key... when you get to that screen... choose safe mode... if it successfully boots.... go to start menu... and restart again... it should boot... if it wants to do the update let it.... if still nothing.... f8 again and choose last known good configuration
