8024A 000 error code when you try to run Windows Update on Vista 32-bit

I get the above error when you try to run Windows Update on Vista 32 bit.

I use an Asus laptop and have used the Asus recovery cd.
I just replaced the old HD (500 gb) as it failed with a 750 GB HD.
I tried the SP1 upgrade to SP2 and this causes a "catastrophic failure".
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Thanks for the support. I got the Asus machine this morning and they have corrected the problem in a few minutes by running a short script. In my view, that it is a common problem with Asus and Western Digital HD. Anyway congratulations to Asus. Here, after the service is impressive.

See you soon

  • 800b0100 error code when you try to install Windows updates KB974145 and KB978251

    Greetings and salutations:

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I tried to install these 'important' updates several times with the same result - updates failed, error 800b0100 code. I downloaded and installed the KB974821 tool - tells me it installed - same problem. (I don't know if I'm supposed to do something else with KB974821 - I have to "run" or just "installed" it enough?) Instructions could certainly be clearer)

    I tried to download and install the updates manually - without success - I get various error messages, like "does not apply to your system" or "for a different hardware platform.

    I tried this with my firewall/antivirus close as well - using Trend Micro - and still no luck.

    Thoughts, comments, suggestions, help? Very much appreciated. Thank you.

    BTW, I'm running VHP 64 with Service Pack 2 installed. Nothing should be this complicated or frustrating.

    Additional information:

    In another forum, where I posted this inquiry (I was told is the right place to post it here) I was advised on how to get the results of the KB947821 tool that I ran.  (Why this information was not given instructions on how to use the tool is beyond me).

  • Error code 0 x 80248014 when you try to run MSE Update on Vista 64 bit OS

    Tomb guard Windows Update crashes when you try to run the Service Pack 1 for Vista 64 even if it seems to have installed service pack when I view installed updates.  Update the window continues to show the service pack update according to availability.  So far, I ran it three times and he shows as installed three days in a row, but he does not appear in the properties view and continues to show an available update when I check for updates.

    It's a little confusing because the error code 0 x 80248014 appears when you try to update to MSE, so there seems to be two issues.  The MSE error one and two, the apparent success of the installation of the Service pack 1 for 64 bit Vista Home Premium but not appear in the properties view and always appear when checking for updates, even if each attempt to install appears to be successful.

  • Error 80072efe when you try to run Windows Update (computers)

    In the last week or so, Windows updates have begun failing on our computers to Vista. Sometimes it will work. If there are no updates, there is no difficulty to install. Error # is always the same. Here is a text of the passage of a WindowsUpdate.log:

    An interesting sidenote, if we try to navigate to update.microsoft.com in a browser, after a long break, we get a banner at the top of Microsoft, and three empty frames all display connection errors.

    We tried different DNS servers, we bypassed the firewall, we tried all possible parameters in the network configuration of PCs, we tried to define the parameters of Internet security at the lowest level possible.
    At this point, I'm fresh out of ideas.

    Any suggestions? Does anyone else have this problem?

  • Error when you try to run Windows backup under Vista

    I keep getting error messages when I try to run the Windows backup to an external drive. Aired these backups every month for a while with no problems, but now he keeps by default. An old laptop, so I am running vista.

    First of all, I got this message "error 0x8007045D: the request could not be performed because of an i/o device error." After looking on the suggestion of a forum has been a problem with the external hard drive, so I ran check disk but who gave the fire. At the same time, I tried to open a file on a separate external drive to get a similar error message - seems a little by chance...

    Because the disk check gave the fire I tried to climb back again, to get the message ' the shadow copy creation timed out. " Repeat (0 x 81000101).

    Hoping that someone would have an idea of how to fix this?

    Hello. I wanted to run Visual Studio 2010 Express edition on my Vista Home Premium, but ran into way too many problems. First of all, download have not installed because of a problem with the installation of .NET framework v4.0. Then I tried to VS 2008, but has encountered the same problem with the .NET framework. Whenever I try to run Windows update, it displays error Code 80096001 and said "Windows could not check for new updates. So I tried to download .net directly from microsoft downloads, but whenever I try to install it, it says I need to turn on .net "turn on or off windows features", in the control panel. I tried, but the list is completely empty, it shows nothing at all. I downloaded the vista sp1, but it too installation stops with error code 0 x 80096001.
    I tried to disable my anti-virus (avg free). Windows Defender does not initially upward or through subsequent attempts to run it. It shows the same error code. Please advise on how I can solve these problems and use Visual Studio... it's very frustrating because I never had these problems with XP... everything worked.
