In most cases if you are running Windows 8 you have to reinstall the system again. Try to learn to select updates manually cause not all Automatic Updates are needed for personal computer use.

SOURCE: cannot start up the laptop

Hi there.
That really quick flash of a blue screen is the blue screen of death and there is a possibility that the error could be memory related.
What you have to do is remove and clean the system memory and the slots the memory goes into.
Take out the battery and the AC power (if attached)
The memory will be located behind a panel underneath the laptop, unscrew the panel unclip the memory, clean the brass contacts and the slots with a clean, dry, soft paintbrush, then reseat the memory making sure it clips into place, replace the memory cover and reboot the laptop, see if it lets you into windows.

Please post back with the results and more help if needed, good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

SOURCE: hp laptop 9720us screen wont brighten or dim. last

You got the wrong inverter fitted - i'm sure your unit requires a sinle lamp inverter and they have cheated - putting in a generic lamp inverter and branching togeather the wires to accomodate the single plug thus reducing the available volatage for the lamps - this is why it's dim - correct part is 431391-001 Display panel power inverter - For use with single lamp display panel

The lid actuator switch may not be working correctly. It's a small switch above the keyboard and led's on either the right or left side. Try pressing it 2 or 3 times to see if the display starts working correctly again. If so, it will need to be replaced.

If that doesn't work, you can also turn it on with the ac adapter plugged in. After it boots, press the power button and hold it in until it shuts off and then turn it on again and see if the display has returned to normal.

If neither of these options work, your laptop may need to have the backlight replaced.

uninstall the updates : if you are using vista then go to contolpanel, click on programs, and then programs and features, and on the right hand side panel you would find view installed updates, select all of them or those which you know are causing the problem , and uninstall them , and also go to windows update in the control panel and then click on change settings and then click on check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them..

Asus x553 has been showing configuring windows features 100% complete don't turn off your computer message for 24 hours


Hi
This sometimes happens when updates are not successfully downloaded or installed. I know it says don't turn it off, but this is the only way you'll get it back. Hold the power button down for at least 5 seconds until the power goes off. Wait a minute or two and start the machine up. Upon boot you will probably get a screen asking if you want to start the machine normally, in safe mode and several other options. Try start Windows normally first, and if this doesn't work, Last Known Good Configuration. If this fails as well then you will probably need to go into safe mode and uninstall some of the latest updates.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Updates fail to download


Nasty! I would try going to Start>Restart> OK Your computer is not actually turned off then. When it starts booting up again, tap the f8 key continually until you get a screen of text. Select start in Safe Mode and see if it boots up in Safe Mode. Then try and go on line and download the updates again.
If all that fails you will have to close down your computer and switch off. Wait 15 secs, cross your fingers and start up again!

Toshiba c55t-a5222 bios update, after reboot no screen


Did it at anytime lose power during updating? If so, motherboard was damaged and needs replaced. Otherwise, try to boot into'Safe Mode with Networking' and if it turns on, immediately re-install your graphics (video) driver. See this link for instructions on booting in to safe mode on a Toshiba: http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Windows-7-Knowledge-Base/How-To-Start-your-Windows-7-computer-in-Safe-Mode/ta-p/272525

    My windows vista won't open


    If it does this after re-booting the computer then something got corrupted when it was updating. You could try pressing F8 when the computer is first booting up(right before window starts). This will bring up a menu. Choose the option to run the last known good configuration and see if that gets windows working again. You might need to choose a restoration point to get windows working. If you get it working and then the windows update tries to install the updates again hopefully they will work this time. If it happens again then make sure to cancel those updates and contact Microsoft with the software issue.

    What,s the deal with windows updates in Windows XP,i have a dell laptop with XP home edition.How shoul'd i configure automatic updates,does it need to be turned on automatic download and update 24/7,or...


    What I'd do personally. If you have a broadband connection. Just enable the update program to update during the early hours of the morning. Say somewhere between 1AM and 6AM. This can be set so windows will automatically download, install, and configure the updates for your system. Remember, for it to be able to do this; the computer must be on.

    This way it won't be a hinder to your every day internet usage, and it will do it's business while you're not using the computer. I have mine set up the same way and it's really nice. A simple reboot on some mornings is all I ever have to worry about and my PC is always up to date.
