Question about Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook
Windows Vista opens, says "Updating not complete....do not turn off...." then it shuts down and restarts, does the same over and over.
Tird F10 safe mode, same result
Just allow the updating to complete. Normally it does that as many times as the number of updates installed.
As of now there is no problem with your OS yet but if you will keep avoiding the updates to complete, it might be corrupted.
hope this Helps.

Tips for a great answer:
To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc or
a operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot from
it. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with white
letters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice the percentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run to completion. Then reboot machine.
If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows. Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs.
In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair when the options appear.
In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recovery console and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.
