Question about Acer Aspire 5500 5570-2609 Laptop

1 Answer

Stuck on the updating screen

My ACER laptop has been stuck on the same screen for more than 5 hours now. This is what the screen says :
"Configuring Updates stage 3 of 3: 0% complete
Do not turn off your computer"

All of a sudden the 0% will change to 83% and a few seconds later, a screen will come up saying "shuting down.." The computer will restart, and will go right back to the "Configuring updates" screen.. This has been going on for most of the afternoon.. Also when its on the Configuring updates screen, I am unable to use the mouse pad.

(I'm using another computer at the moment)

If anyone knows whats going on with my computer, or knows how to fix it, PLEASE let me know!
Thanks! :)

(It's a newer laptop too. Just got it in August 08. It's an ACER with the media bar on the left hand side. )

Reboot your computer and when the message appears at the desktop that there are updates available, click on the link to see what updates are available. Make sure any third-party antivirus and firewalls are disabled. Uncheck any that are "Optional" unless you really think your system needs them. Try installing those that are critical/important first, and leave the rest for afterwards.

I just bought a new HP laptop four days ago. I restarted it because it was running slow and when it turned back on it started configuring updates. It reads: "Configuring Windows updates 12% complete...


Step 1. Phone Microsoft see if they can fix the problem over the phone, if not...
Step 2. Take it back to the place of purchase, to get it replace with a new HP, as most shops have a 30 day D.O.A. (dead on arrival) policy.

Acer is stuck on configuring windows updates 30% cpmplete do not turn off computer since yesterday


This usually indicates that Windows update has found something that it cannot handle: if it has been stuck for that long, then your only option is to power-off and re-start the Netbook.
In most case, Windows will recover itself and maybe even roll-back: if not, go to Windows recovery mode and select appropriate option.
Hope it helps.

Acer5920 stuck in configuring updates.


This is generally caused by bad blocks in the Master Boot Record(Table). The drive itself is probably not salvagable. You'll need a reputable reapir person to slave your drive to another system to get the data off.

Good Luck

Stuck on updating screen...


Hi,
do a system restore and restore it back to a previous date in time, but doing a system restore to a previous date in time will mean that you will loose any configuration done or any software installed after that date
for system restore for windows xp here is a helpfull llink
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/306084

for windows vista
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/tutorial143.html


restore your system to a date when you are certain that it was working fine and nect time it prompts to load updates choose custom and select and install only security updates which are very necessary not all of them.

Further Queries are welcome
