After the updates of Windows 7 computer does not start

I received a notice from the system Windows 7 updates have been downloaded and available for installation. I selected the installation of updates. After the updates when installed I was in charge to restart. The computer will not start at the top. It tries but stops at a blue screen with a cursor. I tried to boot into "safe mode" and get the same. I booted from my original Windows 7 disc and I went back to my restore point before the update. It appeared to restore successfully but I still get a blue screen.
What is my next course of action? I certainly DON'T want to format the drive and start again.

The only thing I can say is that I know that you will not like to hear.

It is to re - install Windows 7 (do not enter the product key and uncheck the 'Activation').

Then immediately turn off automatic updates.

Then, go to the Microsoft Update site and only install one update at a time (make a note of the number KBXXXXXX), restart and check that you do not get the blue screen. Then download the next update and repeat the process until you either find to have installed the offending update or updates without any problem. If all goes well and the problem did not repeat, then you can activate Windows.

If you find yourself always with the blue screen after a given Update call Microsoft and tell them. If they won't listen, then create a new post on this forum, making reference to the question of the blue screen AND the number associated with the update. Also post the number here if I can do some research on the problem.

Never be afraid to ask. This forum has some of the best people in the world to help.

    You can try to repay this file by starting windows setup installation CD using the original.

    Hi there @kgoen81

    Welcome to the Forums of HP Support! It's a good place to find the help you need, so many other users, the HP experts and other members of the support staff.

    I understand that you receive a message from a missing file, and that your system does not start. I'm happy to help you.

    First, I recommend that make you an external backup of data on the hard drive. There are several ways you can try to do that, but here is a page with a few possibilities:

    How to recover data from the hard drive to a laptop dead -

    Also, please post the complete product and the operating system running on your laptop. Check out the following, if you need assistance with this information.
    How can I find my model number or product number?
    Is the Version of Windows on my computer 32-bit or 64-bit?

    For now I'll assume you have windows 8.

    Computer won't start (Windows 8)

    You can also visit this page, and in particular you want to go with the automatic repair options. I would try before using a full system recovery to an original image, on the previous page I linked.

  • Windows xp sp3 system root of the Hal.dll error or not found after auto update of windows system corrupt does not load.

    12/07/2011 my system automatically downloaded a system update and rebooted when it restarted, it wouldn't load windows and gave this error message. What should I do? I tried to remove the hard drive and put it on another computer if I could look at the problem but I don't know what to do to fix. My backup information are on another hard drive in the original computer. I use Norton 360 for my backups.

    It is extremely unlikely, there is nothing wrong with your file hal.dll despite what says the error message (do not try to replace).

    It is extremely likely that XP just cannot find the fine hal.dll where it says to look for.

    XP is maybe not able to find the file, it's file system is corrupted (Norton that sometimes), or if your c:\boot.ini has somehow become corrupted and told XP to find files in never never land.

    You must first run a chkdsk /r on your distressed HARD drive and if that does not do it, you have to redefine your boot.ini file.

    If you have the drive in another machine, you can open the file c:\boot.ini with a text editor and copy/paste the content back here for analysis.

    You can also rename your file c:\boot.ini to something like c:\boot.ini.bak (so now you do not).  In a single partition installation, XP is not even a file c:\boot.ini to start.  He'll complain briefly, but always begin (unbelievers - try it).

    t can take a long time for chkdsk complete or they seem to be "stuck".  Be patient.  If the HARD drive led blinks always, chkdsk is something.  Keep an eye on the amount of the percentage to be sure that it is still making progress.  It may even seem to go back sometime.

    You must run chkdsk/r again until it finds no error to correct.

    I'll keep an eye on your Norton since when your charge again, Norton System may corrupt your file system again and you will have to repeat the chkdsk/r to repair (so you can set Norton).

    I put the drive in the original system and fix it there with the XP Recovery Console.  After all, it's where he has to work, right?

    If you have any bootable XP installation CD authentic where you can start the XP Recovery CD of Console, you can make a bootable CD from the Console of the Recovery XP (no XP media required).

  • After the repair system that my computer does not detect wireless/Wired internet connection

    Brand: Gateway Model: MD7818u

    I have big problems with my computer so I did a system repair, wipe all my computer and assigning supposedly to the original computer

    Parameters. However a few things did not get the update/install and now I have absolutely no access to the internet at all. Before, I was able to use directly and wireless
    to connect cable and now it tells me the drivers are not updated and I need to update manually or through the internet. I found the drivers online to this
    website "" which is the gateway support Web site. However, if you look there are several drivers for the different
    systems and I don't know how to say to which of the drivers is the right one for my computer. Will one of these work or what I have to understand that I need
    more precisely and if yes is there a way I can understand this? I'm still all original manuals and box it came but I don't know where to look if she is in any
    individuals. Thank you!


    You will need to ask which are the right drivers for your machine.

    We do not get a list of drivers to this Web site; only to put in the model number of product to continue.

    You must do this yourself.

    See you soon.

  • After the upgrade to Windows 10 Firefox does not display some Fonts/Icons correctly

    Firefox displays a box with numbers inside instead of icons on some websites. I saw several other threads, and the problem was solved by allowing the pages to choose their own fonts. I confirmed this setting is enabled in the GUI and subject: config. However, the question is always natural. I disabled all addons, restarted FF and question persists. With the help of FF 40.0.3.

    I found the root cause of the problem. In Windows 10 when the WIndows Firewall service is stopped (I like this option disabled, I throw a perimeter FW), the problem occurs. Start the Windows Firewall service and everything is fine. Hope this helps others.

    Hey leep58216131,

    I'm sorry, but Adobe Acrobat DC is not a supported version on Windows Vista OS, reason for which you are facing this problem.

    You may need to upgrade to a more recent OS which is fully compatible with this version of Acrobat.

    Method 1

    As the computer starts up fine in safe mode there is a possibility that some third-party programs installed on the computer is the origin of the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.
