    ah hey there, ok talked with collegues and heres where its at. the service pack 3 out at the mo is a pre-release and does have known bugs with certain mainboards, i'll make a wild assumption and say you have an AMD cpu?, the restart is a controller problem thus cannot really be overcome easily. the best thing to do is DELETE ALL service pack 3 files from your pc. slowly add one update at a time from automatic updates. or wait for 2 weeks when microsoft will bring out a final release. basically most people are sticking with sp2 and for good reason. you can download it and google your cpu controller, nvidia or ati controller and usb controllers and then do the whole lot at once.
    hope this helps some.

Hi,


I believe you're having problem with the Operating System on your computer. Unfortunately, Lenovo will not provide a product key for the Operating System since the an OEM version. What you can do is reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery Sofware or the Recovery Disc that came with the computer. Follow these steps for you to be able to reinstall the Operating System using the One Key Recovery.


1. Turn off the computer.


2. Press the little button near the power button, it usually do have a drawing of an icon that looks like a horse shoe or a headset.


3. There will be a window that will appear which do have three option, One Key Antivirus, One Key Recovery and System Setup. Choose One key Recovery.


4. There will be another window that will appear which do have two option, Restore from initial backup and Restore from user backup,Choose Restore from initial back up


5. It will asked you if you want to continue, Just click on OK or YES.


6. Once done, Reboot the computer.


For Recovery Disc,


1. Insert the disc inside the drive.


2. Turn off the computer then turn it back on and keep on tapping F12


3. There will a window that will appear which do have three options, HDD,ODD/DVD/CD, and NAT, choose ODD/DVD/CD


4. It will asked you to press any key immediately, you will need to press any key immediately so that it will boot from ODD.


5. It will asked you to choose a partition, choose Disc 0 partition 1


6. Reboot computer once done.

Hi,
Maybe its a Bad Update. try to Boot to Safemode first and Uninstall the Installed Service Pack 3
To get into the Windows XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting tap "F8 Key" Continuously which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use your arrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Then, uninstall Service Pack 3 Start>Control Panel>Add or Remove Programs then look for Service Pack 3 and Uninstall.
If it did not work try Using System restore.
Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore.
Hope This Helps

My hp laptop dosn't move in configuring 3 of 3 - 0%complete,and then it just switch of and on,and comes back to configuring 3 of 3 k 0% complete


Vista Update Stage 3 Stall……

You see Installing Updates Stage 3 of 3... 0% in Vista after you start or restart your computer and it never goes past 0%. Rebooting the computer doesn't change it. It still boots to Installing Windows updates 3 of 3 and never goes past that 0% mark. Sometimes Windows will even reboot in some cases. I have found that this often happens after Windows updates. I have no idea why, but this seems to be a fairly common occurrence. The last one I repaired was caused by a Service pack 1 installation.

Here's what I have done to fix the 3 of 3 error.

You will be doing a System Restore from the Vista f8 startup

Since the computer your working on is probably stuck on this screen the first step will be a hard shut down.

Hold the power button down until the computer shuts down.

Restart the computer.

Tap the f8 key about once or twice per second to get the Safe mode screen to come up.

In Windows Vista there is a new choice when the safe mode selection comes up. "Repair Your Computer"

Highlight the "Repair Your Computer" choice.

Windows will act like it is going t boot up.

You will see a System Recovery Options window.

It will ask you to choose your language.

Click Next

Select your user and put in your password. (leave blank if you don't have a password)

You should now have choices and the one you want is "System Restore"

Follow through the prompts with the Vista System Restore program.

Remember you should pick a restore point that is 1 or 2 points back.

Once you have completed the system restore process you will be asked to restart your computer. Go ahead and restart the computer. It should start correctly at this point. If you don't have a restore point available you may not be able to repair this error. I have not tried to repair one of these without a restore point yet.

Reboot the computer, and carefully watch the screen.
One of the options should be to access the "recovery partition".
Press the listed key to boot from that partition,
and to "restore" your software to the "factory" level.

Error code on dell laptop


There are two options you can try:
First boot up and hit F8 to put it in Safe Mode. Then go into your Control Panel>Add/Remove programs and uninstall Service Pack 1. Reboot and see if that works. If not try this:

Boot up into Safe Mode again by hitting F8 when it starts up. Click on Start>Programs>Accessories>System>System Restore (It may be a little diff but that is close). Click on System Restore and walk thru the Wizard, this will restore your computer to an earlier date before you installed Service Pack 1. Good Luck.

I have tried to install service pack 3 and my computer locks up with a Stpo: C000021a { fatal system error.. What do i do now??


a Repair may fix this
if you have an installation CD not just a recovery CD?

A repair won't lose any data, other than Service Pack (if not on CD), any Windows Updates and unsigned drivers, which will need to be re-installed afterwards.
Stay offline and do a repair dnt go online without a firewall enabled. After that you install all Critical Updates next.

How to Repair
1.Boot the computer from your Windows CD.

2.When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen press [Enter] to start the Windows Setup.

Note: Do not choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", you Do Not want to load Recovery
Console.

3.Accept the Licence Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

4.Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press [R] to start the repair. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

5.Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears. Setup will then continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.
if the problem continues after doing this then change the ram you are using that meana the ram should be part of the problem
i think this should solve the problem
