Sounds like the automatic updater has glitched. Start by trying a system restore from the system tools in the accessories section of the start menu. Go back to a point about a month or so back. However, since this is integrated into the operating system you may need to run a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc, if the restore doesn't clear up the problem.

If are blaming the updates you can remove (uninstall) them. You can also restore your system to a point before the updates you think are causing the problem. If Windows finds updates you can select which to install. Reject all hardware related updates.

Sony VAIO Laptop does not shut down with message "Please do not unplug updaing 11 of 55"


that message is from the automatic updates windows makes from time to time ...and this message usually appears after a fresh install with the operation system out of date ..and if you have the automatic updates ticked for to be made automatically ..The thing to be done is either let it install the updates...and it will shut down by itself...or ..start windows..and go to control panel ..and on the automatic updates...stop the updating process..This will cause a message to appear in the tray system every time ..to warn you that your computer is out of date ..and so ...but it has no real distress cause it will run like a charm even without the updates...(probably even faster ..cause if your computer is a little limited in resources the updates will slow it down a little ..
So ..this message is not a pest ..but the windows updating your operation system ..the only issue is when it is in error and takes more than the time it should ...usually it should not take more than a couple of hours for all 55 updates to be installed ...and this in case you have a slow computer...

Welcome to FixYa!

Try to do Windows Update. I am also using Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit on a different acer machine and windows update took care of all the hardware updates.
  • Click on start, type windows update on the search box, click windows update in the result list.

Windows update window will open.
  • Click on Check Updates.
jas247_44.jpg

After it checks for updates, it will show you the important and optional updates.
  • Click on "...important updates".
  • Check all the important updates, believe me the computer needs it.
  • Then click the Optional TAB in the left column.
jas247_46.jpg

Hardware updates are shown in this OPTIONAL updates tab.
  • Check all, EXCEPT the Language Packs.
  • Click OK on the lower right corner of that window.
  • Then click on install updates.
I hope this will work for you.

Thank you for using FixYa and have a nice day.

VGN-N230N can not read SD card when install windows 7. (vista is ok)


Download all the windows 7 updates and install then restart. Windows update are not only updating your windows 7 but also updating your hardware driver. After updating try again your sd card or if still the same can not read try some memory card reader then test it to your laptop. Have a nice day.

I have an acer that will go to a blue screen after I type in the password then it restarts itself over again the same thing!


Blue screen errors, or blue screen of death (BSOD) errors, are the most severe errors Windows can encounter. Since Windows can not recover from this kernel level error, a blue screen is displayed with the error details. The error details contain a STOP error code, which indicates the type of error.

There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.


How to analyze blue screen errors

The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code. You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered. Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code. Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.

Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred. The event log can be viewed using the event viewer. Right-click Computer in the Start menu, and then select Manage. In the Computer Management window select Event Viewer. The information in the event log can be of great help to isolate the cause of the blue screen error.

Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.


The most common cause of blue screen errors

In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver.

If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name.

If you do not have the drivers for all devices, or are not comfortable updating your PC's drivers manually, you can use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. Such tools will accurately identify your computer hardware, including any device causing an error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it.

In most cases updating or reinstalling drivers will solve your blue screen errors.



Other causes of blue screen errors

However, if updating device drivers does not fix the blue screen error, there are a number of additional things to try:

Load the default BIOS values - resource conflicts and timing issues can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings.

Update the BIOS - especially after adding new hardware or installing a Windows service pack this can help fix issues.

Update Windows - missing updates, including service packs can be a source of stop errors.

Check your system - run a virus scan and spyware scan after updating your definition files.

Driver rollback - if you have recently updated a driver, you can use the driver rollback to revert back to the previous driver version.


hope it helps, if so rate the solution

C drive depletes


let me explain you exactly
hoping that there is enough amount of space allotted for c drive
  • updating the operating system that is turning on windows updates consumes lot of space for example it can consume an average of 2gb if you are updating regularly the operating system
  • updating the antivirus regularly consumes a lot of space

ok now coming to the point,even if you have set the default download drive as other than c drive. when you download any stuff the downloaded file is temporarily stored in c drive before transferring it to the destination set by you. so,whenever you download any thing make sure there is quite a amount of space.

  • defragment the drive regularly
  • allot atleast 20gb for c drive
  • do not store the downloaded files in c drive
  • make sure you install only necessary updates of your operating system using custom install
  • updating a antivirus weekly is sufficient

Windows updates


What you should do, is simply reset the auto update program. Basically, turn all automatic updating off and then reboot the computer. After that, reactivate the updater and see if it works correctly. If it still will not work correctly; I'd go about updating with the online updater.

http://update.microsoft.com/

Using that url, you should be able to access the online update system. It all depends on what version of windows you're using.

Now, if you're running windows Vista; there have been a LOT of updates recently. Such as daily windows defender updates, security patches, and yes, quite a bit of performance patches. It could be that you're just seeing the same names on some updates.

Also, if you switch it to notify you but don't download you can manually download and install each update at a time. This could help you find a possible fix if microsoft has already fixed that problem.
