It would have been best if I would have known your operating system. Anyways depending upon the OS you either need to hit F8 or F10 and a black windows will popup with many options use down arrow key and select last good known configuration and hit enter. This is the fastest and easiest way of reverting back. If this does not solves your problem due to any reason then you will be required to use your operating system CD. As soon as you push the on button on your pc just insert your OS CD in the cd/dvd drive and hit enter when it asks you to boot through CD. ignore first repair option (just hit enter) when the repair option for the second time appears just hit R and follow the instructions this will take care of your problem. No data will be lost everything will run as it used to.

Whats (Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting changes Do not turn off your computer.


windows configures windows systems with each new update for that windows system
if you have the update installed automatically as they become available then the computer has to suspend operations while the updates are put into the operating system
That means that a new registry is created and the program placed accordingly on the hard drive
it requires that the computer be left on until that is achieved and will in some instances shut down and then restart the computer to effect certain changes
It is imperative that when this is happening that you leave the computer turned on and leave it alone as any programs you open may become corrupted or corrupt the existing programs
you will normally get this notification on shutdown which will shutdown when finished and on opening next time so that the previous download can be configured into the computer properly
it just means that you have to wait for the computer to do ti's thing

Failure to configure updates reverting changes ?


When (if?) you regain control of your PC, turn off or disconnect the Internet and disable automatic updates.

Then perform a system image backup.

Only perform manual updates from then on.

If you have a similar problem, restore the system image.

Dell XPS 630i on start up goes into Configuration Updates...Fails and states "Updates were not configured correctly. reverting changes". Will shut down randomly.


If your computer is shutting down randomly and not because it is doing a post update restart, it may be worth giving the interior a clean as it could be overheating from dust build up in the fans and heatsink. Before you do that make sure you use a soft paint brush and that the power is disconnected from the computer. Be gentle with the brush as the capacitors are delicate and important.

Not configuring update correctly...reverting changes


You didn't give your make, model of laptop, or your OS? What updates? Did you reboot your machine? Shut down, unplug, remove battery, plug in, reboot. Sometimes if you have change the OS on a machine you will get erroneous updates. Sometimes due to other conditions you will get a error message that may help to ID the problem.

Updates not configured correctly reverting changes help


Good morining, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time of day you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to answer your question. Your updates aren't configured correctly and you want to know if reverting changes will help? The answer is yes! You can revert changes to an update by using a tool called System Restore. System Restore is a tool provided by Windows Vista that allows you to revert to your computer's last known configuration settings. Do not worry, this will not restore your computer to it's factory settings unless you are installing Vista for the first time. This is helpful if you want to resolve a corrupted file or uncorrect update configuration issue; an error causing you to not be able to upload your OS: or something causing your system to run slowly.

To upload System Restore:

1. 9_26_2011_1_23_39_am.pngClick the Windows logo or press it on your keyboard.

2. 9_26_2011_1_27_06_am.pngThe quickest way to find this is to type "System Restore" in the search box.

3. 9_26_2011_1_29_08_am.pngOnce the System Restore link is shown, click it.

4. 9_26_2011_1_33_59_am.pngIf User Account Control (UAC) asks you (the administrator) to give it permission, click Continue.

5. 9_26_2011_1_37_13_am.pngThe System Restore menu comes up and asks you if you want to either use the recommended restore point or a different restore point of your choosing. I would choose the most updated restore point if possible (ususally the "Recommended restore" one).

6. 9_26_2011_1_39_22_am.pngClick Next>

7. 9_26_2011_1_42_16_am.pngClick Finish to confirm your restore point. You will need to close any open programs or files before doing so because your computer will be restarted.

If you want, once the system is restored, you can try the update again if you want. Knowing from experience, I have had to install update two even three time before they were successful. I hope this answers your question and solves your problem.

My computer reverts back after reboot! Everytime I make changes in settings or create a file etc etc. After a reboot it goes back to the way it was before! I'm not able to do anything with my computer...


This is a sign that the CMOS battery need to be replaced.
Shut down your system. Locate the CMOS battery on your motherboard. Uninstall it & get a replacement battery. Install the replacement battery & power up your system. Go to BIOS & apply your settings, the save & exit.
