After you apply Windows XP - SP3 post upmedia locks or crashes or both

I have a HP Pavilion a1420n (Media Center) and Pavilion HP laptop also with Media Center, after applyig SP3 the HP Pavillion locked up and crashed.  After 4 tries to apply the updates, it crashed twice, locked up once and was not able to backup or restore.  I was able to get SP3 to apply the Media Center, but it does not start I need help, I am not a technician.

OK, if the system was to SP2 before you apply SP3, then you have updated such as advised by Microsoft. I did a bit of research on this subject and even if you aren't alone, I couldn't find a definitive answer. Another contributor to this thread (ElderL/Jose) could help. If Jose can help, your problem is definitely a 'hard' nut

Unlike Jose, I have MCE and although I tried, I was unable to reproduce your problem.

My best advice for a possible solution is to do a clean install. I've published some guidelines here...

  • After you install Windows XP SP3, I am unable to use my modem.

    I had Windows XP2 on two of my computers and one day he came with an update for XP3 it says that you can download now so I asked data doctors on this issue and they said yes go before I did. But now I can't use my modem that I paid for new install when I bought them. When I tried to put in place my fax modem it askes me to insert the CD XP3, but I do not because I upgarded to line. How can I remove XP3 and reinstall my XP2 I still have my cd, s on both computers.

    original title: I got Windows XP2

    I guess you could uninstall service pack 3 (using the control panel > Add / Remove Programs), then install Services of Fax and then reinstall the service pack 3, but I do not know the consequences of doing this on all the updates post-sp3 installed.

    (If you really want to do it this way, I suggest seeking advice from experts in the Windows Update forum posting asking "is it safe to uninstall and reinstall xp sp3".  Include in the body of your message a question on post-sp3 updates).

    Because you have a Windows XP sp2 CD, the best thing for you to do is to create a CD of XP sp3 using the process known as "slipstreaming."  If you have a CD burner on your computer (i.e., a CD player that can write as well as to read the CD), it is a relatively easy thing to do - and it's always good to have a handy day XP installation CD.

    There are many websites that explain how to do this.  Here are 3:

  • 48 new important updates after you apply the language pack

    Original title: Windows 8 updates after you have applied the language pack

    Hi all

    I bought the laptop with the English version of Windows 8 in 2013 and a few days ago decided to change the default language to Spanish.

    Language Pack has been successfully installed. But when I checked for Windows 8 updates available (I subscribe) I have seen that it is necessary to install 48 new important updates.

    Regularly, I installed all necessary updates. And now, after you apply the language pack, I have to repeat all the facilities of updates once more to be up-to-date and continue with Spanish? Or I missed something during the installation of the language pack?

    Thanks much for the advice.

    Kind regards

    Sergei Sumskoy

    Hi Sergey,

    We will first check if the 48 new important updates are already installed on the computer or not.

    To view your history of update

    1. Open Windows Update by sliding into the right edge of the screen and click on settings.
    2. Click change PC settings, and click then on update and recovery.
    3. Click view update history.

    Method 1:
    If the important updates are already installed on the computer, you can install all important updates available.

    Method 2:
    If all updates are already installed on the computer, you can reset the Windows Update components and check if there are new updates available.
    How to reset the Windows Update components?

    Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems can occur if you modify the registry incorrectly.

    ·        Did you do a clean install of Windows Vista without formatting?

    ·        How many letters pilot are there on the system, for example C:\, D:\?

    ·        The number of records your C:\ drive?

    Open C:\ drive and select all the files that are present and check what size is (of all files). Let us know the size.

    If you did a clean installation without formatting then, it may be a folder named windows.old. If you have the folder on the system, then follow the steps mentioned in the article below.

    Hello

    I installed an Alfred Workflow (see code below) that will mark all my mails as read. After you run it for a minute, the mail has crashed and I had to forcequit. However, now, when you open the Mail it crashes instantly, even after restart and repair the permissions. I also used the Ctrl + C and CTRL-Z commands in the Terminal to leave the alfred_script, but nothing helped. I'm running out of ideas here, so I hope you could help me either reinstall the mail.app. I could always just switch to a different mail application, but it's kind of a last resort.

    Code:

    Tell application "Mail".

    Define allAccounts on each account name

    Repeat with currAccount in allAccounts

    the unreadMboxes value (each mailbox to the account currAccount the unread number is not 0)

    Repeat with currMbox in unreadMboxes

    (read status of each message to currMbox including the playback State is set to false) true value

    end repeat

    end repeat

    tell the end

    Any input would be greatly appreciated. Can post the report of crash on demand.

    Not sure that Alfred's, but it's just an Applescript script and it would not cause Mail to be planted.

    However, when running through all the messages, it is possible Mail database has been corrupted and it crashes because of this.

    I'll probably get anything out of the accident report, but others might.

    My first instinct would be to rebuild the mailbox. Because you can't do that with him crashing, you can simply delete the databases and it will rebuild them.

    Navigate to this folder:

    ~/Library/Mail/v3/MailData/

    You can either manually through the files, or copy the full path and paste it into go the folder in the menu go to the Finder.

    Remove the envelope Index files. Open Mail and see if it works well.

    If your library does not appear in your folder, hold down the Option key and select library in the menu go to in the Finder.
