Hi, this is a common problem with a vista update, dont know why it does it, just does! When it tries to restart keep pressing the 'F8' button and you should get advanced boot options menu where you can get windows to try and repair itself to an earlier restore point, if the problem persists then I'm afraid you'll be looking at restoring back to original factory settings. Below is an extract from the Dell manual found at
http://book-lab.ru/pdf/DELL-INSPIRON/service_manual_for_DELL_Inspiron_1525.pdf

Restoring the Computer to the Default Factory Configuration
The Dell Factory Image Restore option allows you to restore your hard drive
back to its original factory configuration as when you first ordered it from
Dell. This option appears on Dell computers that were originally pre-installed
with Windows Vista® and does not include computers purchased through
the Express Upgrade promotion or computers that were upgraded to
Windows Vista from another version of Windows.
NOTICE: When you restore the computer to the default factory configuration, all
data on the C drive is deleted. Before performing this procedure, back up personal
files. If you do not back up personal files, the data is lost.
1 Restart the computer. To do this, click Start → → Restart.
2 As the computer restarts, press <F8> until the Advanced Boot Options
menu appears on the screen.
NOTE: You must press the <F8> key before the Windows logo appears on the
screen. If you press <F8> after the Windows logo appears on the screen, the
Advanced Boot Options menu will not appear on the screen. If you do not see
the Advanced Boot Options menu, restart the computer, and then repeat this
step until you see the menu on the screen.
3 Press <Down Arrow> to select Repair Your Computer on the Advanced
Boot Options menu, and then press <Enter>.
4 Specify the language settings that you want, and then click Next.
5 Log in as a user who has administrative credentials, and then click OK.
6 Click Dell Factory Image Restore.
7 In the Dell Factory Image Restore window, click Next.
8 Select the Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory
condition checkbox.
9 Click Next. The computer is restored to the default factory configuration.
When the restore operation is completed, click Finish to restart the computer.

Hope this helps!

Hi,

You could try a system restore to combat this problem.

- Reboot and keep tapping F8.
- Choose 'Repair your Computer'
- Login.
- Choose 'System Restore'

Be sure to restore to a point BEFORE the problem started.

Good Luck!

My inspiron 1525 crashed and I turned it off using power button. Every time it comes on again it says 'configuring update stage 3 of 3 - do not turn off your computer'. It keeps shutting itself off then...


1. Insert your Vista Media into your dirve and boot from it.
2. Select "Repair your Computer" from the list.
3. Select "Command Prompt" from the recovery choices.
4. At the command prompt change your directory to C:WindowsWinSxS
5. Type: del pending.xml
6. Exit and reboot

This will fix all Windows update reboot loops and does not require you to restore your PC to and earlier state.

I cannot logon to my PC


Start your PC in safe mode, to do this repeatedly tap the F8 key as soon as you turn the power on. This will then bring up an "options" screen listing boot in safe mode, safe mode with network support etc. Just use safe mode. If it goes directly to windows instead - shut it off and try again til u get the safe mode screen. The arrow keys control the selection to choose.When it starts in safe mode a black screen will usually appear with a bunch of writing, this is normal, after that it may "hang" for as long as 5 minutes, before coming up with a login screen. Sometimes hitting enter or escape will bring up the login screen faster. When you have a login screen, login and disable the updates using the software control options for the software that is trying to update. You might also go to control panel, administrator options, then services and disable automatic updates temporarily. When your pc starts in safe mode - it starts with minimal drivers and does not run updates- this allows you to change settings. You can then reboot normally and it should start properly without updating before starting.
