    Windows is not even loading. What i meant by gibberish is just some unrecognizable symbols that does not seem to be English distorting the screen & i cannot see most of the words. I cannot even read the error message again because the screen is distorted by these symbols

  • dhenry52 Sep 04, 2009

    Oh by the way these symbols occur as soon as the computer is turned on

    You need to post your error messages here. There are a few things that cause this but we need a bit more info to nail it down. So what you need to do is describe the gibberish a bit. Does that occur right when you power up or is this showing up only when windows starts loading? What is the error windows displays?

Is this after the Bios post screen (shows how much memory what harddrives are mounted, etc.)? If not, are you getting anything other than one beep when bios posts? If so, you may have a hardware problem. Try removing PCI cards from it first (network card, sound card, etc.) and see if one of these cards is causing the issue.

If it's not all that and it is trying to load Windows, do you have a recovery disk? Does the computer hard drive have a recovery partition? If so, try and recovery Windows XP from the recovery program.

Hope this helps,
Bill

My hp laptop dosn't move in configuring 3 of 3 - 0%complete,and then it just switch of and on,and comes back to configuring 3 of 3 k 0% complete


Vista Update Stage 3 Stall……

You see Installing Updates Stage 3 of 3... 0% in Vista after you start or restart your computer and it never goes past 0%. Rebooting the computer doesn't change it. It still boots to Installing Windows updates 3 of 3 and never goes past that 0% mark. Sometimes Windows will even reboot in some cases. I have found that this often happens after Windows updates. I have no idea why, but this seems to be a fairly common occurrence. The last one I repaired was caused by a Service pack 1 installation.

Here's what I have done to fix the 3 of 3 error.

You will be doing a System Restore from the Vista f8 startup

Since the computer your working on is probably stuck on this screen the first step will be a hard shut down.

Hold the power button down until the computer shuts down.

Restart the computer.

Tap the f8 key about once or twice per second to get the Safe mode screen to come up.

In Windows Vista there is a new choice when the safe mode selection comes up. "Repair Your Computer"

Highlight the "Repair Your Computer" choice.

Windows will act like it is going t boot up.

You will see a System Recovery Options window.

It will ask you to choose your language.

Click Next

Select your user and put in your password. (leave blank if you don't have a password)

You should now have choices and the one you want is "System Restore"

Follow through the prompts with the Vista System Restore program.

Remember you should pick a restore point that is 1 or 2 points back.

Once you have completed the system restore process you will be asked to restart your computer. Go ahead and restart the computer. It should start correctly at this point. If you don't have a restore point available you may not be able to repair this error. I have not tried to repair one of these without a restore point yet.

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.
