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.

Using windows xp with regular updates for 4 years no problem. today will not start. tried F8 to safe start and none of the options work screen goes blank


HI,

The last thing you can try is hit F8 again and select "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION"
If you still face the problem then you will have to install your Xp again.

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

I have an acer aspire laptop, when i start it up its says configuring updates stage 3 of 3 0% complete then it will shut down come back on say the same again and shut down again. it will keep on doing this


Maybe you could try the last known good configuration. When the laptop is starting up, wait until the acer screen disappears and then tap F8 on the keyboard before the windows screen comes up. You should get a black screen with some options that say safe mode. The fourth or so option on the list will be "Last Known Good Configuration". The computer should try and load windows. Hopefully that will restore the machine before the update. 

If it works it would be a good idea to go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and fully update your laptop. This will download the update manually instead of doing it with automatic updates.
