Windows 7 is freezing upon boot (post is ok) after antivirus installation/windows updates. What could be the cause? I figure a hardware conflict, or maybe a boot sector virus. Any thoughts please?


Hello,Try booting in safe mode or try "last known good configuration". To do this press F8 before windows starts its boot process. You will have a menu with options and you then choose. Before you install and windows updates, Windows creates a restore point, therefore you can roll back the updates by booting "last known good config". From there you can see what went wrong.

Hi, I'm using K40In. I can not use the touch-pad anymore. since I realized that, I've tried plenty ways to install the ELANTECH software.... but can not. plz reply me ASAP.


There should be a function key to enable/disable the touch-pad (Fn and one of the light blue keys usually "F" keys) try to look through the keys and see if you have the pad turnned off, if it was a windows update theat stopped it from working then you should be able to roll it back to a working order from a system restore point. Go under the start menu select accessories, system tools, system restore then select the restore point at which you remember the touch-pad still worked.

My computer was doing a windows update it shut off half way through now it wont boot up its vista how can i restore it to original factory setting cause the restore feature doesn t work on it now ...


F9 isn't the key you want to press, when your computer is booting up, you want to spam the F8 key. This will bring you to the Advanced System Option menu. From here you can either try logging into Safe Mode and performing a System Restore, or you can choose Directory Services Restore Mode.
If that doesn't correct the problem, put your Windows Vista DVD into your computer, go into the BIOS and enable your computer to boot from the DVD.

If you aren't sure how to set this up properly, I would suggest calling a friend who does, or bring the computer to a service technician. Setting something incorrectly in the BIOS Menu can severely damage your computer.

Hi follis_valpn,

If you are trying to install the Windows Update 937287, you will get this (configuring updates stage 3 of 3. 0% complete) message. If you are getting the message even after restarting the Computer, you may need to repair the Windows (using the installation Disc) or restore the Computer to an earlier date.

First you can try restarting the Computer in the Safe Mode and do the System Restore. To access the Safe Mode, please press and hold the F8 Key whlie restarting the Computer. Then, please click "Start", "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and "System Restore". Then, please select a restore point (Date) when the Computer was working correctly. This should restore the Computer to the selected date and fix the issue.

The, alternative option is to use the Windows Installation Disc and perform the "Repair" option.

The issue will be fixed after you perform any of the above steps. To avoid the issue in future (whlie doing the Windows Update), please download and install the Windows Update 937287 from Microsoft Download Center separately.

Below is the link to obtain the Update.

http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/b/d/3bd7db67-7a7a-4c16-b10a-e0eace7d9473/Windows6.0-KB937287-v2-x86.msu

Hope this helps..

Good Luck!

Thanks for using Fixya.

Black Gateway screen Help


I had a problem starting up from the black screen. I went the route of restoring the laptop not know of a possible "common" problem. The following is what I used for my system restore to get my laptop running, perhaps by following the steps to change the bios it might also fix your problem. If anything it doesn't hurt to try at this point.

URL: http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/582490-freezing-during-full-system-restore.html

do these steps to disable SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility and then run System Restore again on your computer.
1. Turn on the computer and begin pressing the F2 key in one-second intervals. If you perform this step correctly, you see the BIOS Setup Utility menu. If Windows loads normally, repeat this step.

2. In the BIOS Setup Utility, press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Advanced menu.

3. On the Advanced menu, change the Intel SpeedStep setting from Enabled to Disabled.

4. Press the RIGHT ARROW key to select the Exit menu.

5. On the Exit menu, select Save Changes and Exit

6. Restart the computer and run System Restore.

7. After completing the restore, download and install the Critical Update for Windows XP (KB885626) package from the Microsoft Web site.

8. Once the KB885626 package is installed, re-enable Intel SpeedStep in the BIOS Setup Utility.

Several things you can try...first, if System Restore is enabled (not recommended because viruses love to eat and grow in there), boot into Safe Mode (F8 at startup). If you can get into safe mode, go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore ...the SP update automatically creates a restore point before it begins (about the only thing that Microsoft actually got right!), and you should be able to select that restore point and go back to before you ran the update.

If that does not work, or you cannot get into safe mode, then you will need to run a Windows repair using your original Windows CD or factory recovery disc(s). Make sure to run a "repair", not a "clean install", else you will lose all your data. (if you don't care about saving data, I recommend a clean install).

If the repair doesn't work, your only real choice is to do a clean install, following the steps just above. However, you will lose all your documents, so if they are important to you, take your computer to a PC service tech or facility and have them backup your files first. It'll cost you, but probably not that much. I normally charge my clients $60/hr to backup their data, and usually it only takes about 30 minutes for 1-5GB of data.

After that (or without that), run the Windows "clean" install and you're back in business!

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)
