    Hey tony1232

    1st thing to try is a restoration of the system in safe mode

    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap theF8 key repeatedly until you are presented with theBoot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode option with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    If that does not read this information

    the link below has the way to download with a vista disk startup repair that you can boot from if you do not have a microsoft dvd vista

    Here's how to use startup repair system restore command prompt, etc. to bleepingcomputers link below

    to boot from the dvd drive to be able to you will see a way to get into the bios Setup at the bottom of the screen or command menu start

    It would be F2 or delete etc to enter the BIOS or F12 etc. for the start menu

    Change boot order it do dvd drive 1st in the boot order

  • Nagging "restart the computer to complete the installation of updates".

    Using Windows 7 and had automatic windows updates turned on - I now will choose updates to install.  While I use my computer, the dialog box appears constantly on my screen asking you to restart the computer to complete the installation of the updates.  I restart the computer a couple of times and yet the box is always displayed.  It is obvious that restarting the computer is not the problem.

    Andrew, thanks for your response. I tried all that. What happened... I was looking for solutions, I started having problems with my FireFox browser, then my IE browser. Then I noticed other problems of stability. Not sure what caused it, but I decided to just go ahead and restore my Win 7 in original factory condition and X 5 installed without a hitch. NET 4 doesn't load until after installation, so I don't know if it's causing problems, or if it was just my whole system. I think that a program back - up my data online in real time could be the cause of stability issues. In any case, five hours later, I got this job, and I don't think it was a problem of Corel.

    Once again, thank you. Offer good advice!

  • Computer hangs on the installation of the Windows updates

    I was out of town for two weeks.  On my return, I turned on my laptop and downloaded Wondos 27 updates and started to install. However, when he started to install the update # 26 he hung up. It was like that for three hours. I turned off the computer and restarted. He said "starting windows" and then returned to say "Windows is installing update 26 27.» If please do not turn off the power or turn off the computer. !!! It's as if he's stuck in some kind of loop. How should I address this problem so the computer will start and not get hung up again? My computer operating system is Windows 7 Vista Premium edition.

  • computer froze during the installation of win 7

    I installed windows 7 on my computer, it got a ways in the installation but then frozen, I rebooted the computer, but now, the only options it gives me is to restore the computer, or tried to fix the computer, ive tried both, but its hours for some reason any and then says it was unsuccessful and restarts

    Boot from the Windows 7 DVD
    Click Install now
    Accept the license agreement
    When the option is displayed to select a type of installation, click (Custom advanced)

    Select the disk partition where you want to install Windows 7 click Next.

    You will receive the following warning:

    The partition you have selected may contain files from a previous Installation of Windows. If so, these files and folders will be moved to a folder named Windows.old. You will be able to access the information in Windows.old, but you will be able to use your previous version of Windows.

    (At all costs, do NOT click on anything in Format, deletion or Partition name.) So even do a custom installation, your personal files are still kept. Click OK

    The installation program will now begin installation. During installation, your computer will be restarted several times.

    Once the installation is complete, you can complete the Out of Box experience as the choice of your laptop, create a username, password, your time zone. You can then proceed to download the latest updates for Windows and reinstall your applications and drivers.

    You can then retrieve your personal files from the Windows.old folder and reinstall all of your applications and drivers.

  • HP Pavilion 23: computer hangs during the boot process

    Computer updates been made 2 days ago and has frozen black screen. Now does not start at the top. Starts the process and then freezes. He did start once yesterday and was going well for a few hours, then got a message saying computer had a problem.

    Error message:


    Now back to not start upward again, hangs with the HP logo on the screen.

    Hi there @ldgie25.

    That the Forums are with you!  I understand that, after a few updates, your computer does not start correctly and freezes on the HP logo.   I'm happy to help you with this.

    Since it was started once, but then had a blue error screen, I suggest using the computers HP - use Microsoft System Restore (Windows, 10, 8).   Follow the instructions in the section «restore your computer when Windows is unable to boot normally»  See if it will start normally after the restoration. If yes then you probably want to prevent the offending update to install again.

    Please see the following for how to do this:

    How to temporarily prevent an update for driver reinstallation of Windows 10 -

    How to uninstall and updates to block and drivers on Windows 10 -

    Please let me know if it works for you and if it does not solve your problem, please mark this message as a solution. Bravo would be appreciated as well.

  • Satellite Pro A10 hangs during the installation of Win XP

    Hi guys,.

    just thouth I would ask why my new laptop will not install XP.
    Only, it crashes during installation. No n' achete purchased on this occasion, had no operating system installed.

    I wonder if it's a driver problem, using my xp disc I bought, but like I said that just, it will hang during installation.
    What I need to intergrate drivers somehow?
    I'm guessing that this is the problem?

    If so, how do I?

    see you soon

    I really wonder that your new laptop is probably produced about 5 years ago. ;)

    In any case, to install WXP use WindowsXP SP1 installations CD (factory settings). If you want to discuss a little more please explain to us what exactly is happening.

  • Restart the computer to complete the installation of updates

    I get an error message saying "Windows cannot update of important files and services while the system uses them. Be sure to back up your files before you start again. "I shut down my computer several times, and I still get this message. call me in 10 minutes etc. If I put the computer in mode 'sleep' it keeps restarting itself throughout the night. Suggestions please.

    Sorry, no, I don't know what update has been installed. I watched the updates of windows and they say they are still installed even last night and I get the error message. I looked at all the recent updates and thus, they are all showed that the installations were successful. I'm not sure but I think it started at the end of last week or the weekend. I'll also try the second suggestion that you did, but I don't know much about computers so it could be a bit of a challenge.  Bill

  • Computer hangs during the transfer of 16 jpeg files.

    Recently, I replaced my Toshiba Satellite M40 PATA hard drive and reinstalled Windows XP SP3.  Subsequently, I find transfer more than 16 jpeg files (approx. 1 MB each) at the same time causes the computer freezes.  I have to shut down the computer and restart and sometimes the computer is 'always' Hung/frozen after restarting Windows (mouse move no keys, ctrl + alt + delete work does produce no action) which necessitated my stop down and restart the computer again.

    This problem occurs during various methods of transfer-to transfer pictures from my card SD using the scanner and camera or Nikon transfer software, trying to copy and paste pictures from the SD in an empty folder, and the problem occurs even when I try to spend more than 16 images from a folder in another.  I tried to transfer images from a folder with the computer in safe mode and the problem occurs when I try to transfer a little more than 16 images at once.  (my SD card, has about 60 images on that.)  There is no error message or any other message - the computer simply crashes.

    I did not have this problem before reinstalling XP.  There seems to be no limit to the size of the transfer that I could perform. I can't wait to find out how I can remedy this problem.  I am familiar with writing code, check the registry, etc, but I'm good enough following the simple procedures.  Thank you for your help.

  • Installation hangs during the installation of Adobe Pdf Reader, MS Doc Viewer free of charge and same VS2010 c# Express

    For the last two months that I had trouble setting things in general, for example MS doc viewer for free and VS2010 c# Express.

    Yesterday, I tried to install the new version of Adobe Pdf Reader and had exactly the same problem again. I double-click on the executable installer, that it goes right up to 100% on the preparation and when it gets to the point when it should start the installation itself that the computer just hangs and installation does not.

    I'm almost certain that this is not a virus I have an up-to-date antivirus and run a scan complete of all the two days. He has never had any problems there.

    Anyone know what goes wrong? How do I put right?

    Help, please.

    Here's how to solve problems with Windows Installer:

    If this does not work, try the Windows Installer Cleanup utility: and see if that helps.

  • Installation Wizard gives an error during the installation of update on CS5 CS6

    We are trying to install CS6 on a new windows computer with windows 8.1. We bought a version update for CS5 a couple of years ago and the installation wizard asks CS5 serial number, but when we enter the code, the wizard says serial number does not match the product. We do not know what package it belongs to, but we tried all packages and the error evertime. It did not work on another computer 2 3 years ago, but we don't have access to this device more. Could someone help us please? Thank you

    If you install CS5 there is not need to do this if your only reason is so that you can install CS6.  CS6 is a standalone product and does not update CS5.   You'll need is to first install CS6 and then activate it with CS6 serial number.  After that he will notice that you do not have a version more old qualification and then did you select CS5 as this release candidate and then provide its serial number.

  • HP Pavilion p6-2069sc: computer hangs during the HP splash screen


    I plug an ASUS GeForce GTX STRIX 750Ti to use in my Pavilion P6 - 2069sc, but when I start the computer after installing my GPU, the screen hangs on the blue HP startup screen.

    When I try to hit the ESC key to enter the BIOS or any other keys it comes just a beep of the machine.

    It is a long beep every 20 seconds or so from the computer.

    When I use the integrated graphics card, everything works as they should.

    I already upgraded to 550W 300W POWER supply

    Because your computer has been manufacturer Sept 2011, there Legacy BIOS.  The latest vBIOS UEFI was initiated at the HP units at end of 2012.  That said, either you stay with a Legacy BIOS GPU card, or choose a dual hybrid card BIOS.  The GTX 660, or GTX 670, all of which are two high-end of the legacy card would be far superior to the GTX 750Ti.   All the current hype is looking for a lower quality card, the 750Ti, based on the more low power and some GTX offering a BIOS hybrid via Select manufacturer. The Asus could not be hybrids, as you can testify. 450W SS6 550W PSU

    Based on your existing new POWER Pack, (hopefully a quality unit), 660 GTX would be good.  In my humble OPINION, an EVGA GTX 660 is better based on your power supply of the system. Please call EVGA for re - check a Legacy BIOS.

    PS I have a EVGA GTX 660 and 670 in my BIOS Legacy of <>towers.  I tried an ASUS, but he did not have an ASUS motherboard. Strange, but ASUS check the fault has his own card. Cost me $50 return shipping cost, so Please check with any manufcacturer.

  • The computer hangs during the communication via a serial port

    I developed a code in LabVIEW 2011 to connect with the XY stage. It's actually two steps mounted perpendicularly. The installer of the system is that a (made by the same manufacturer as the stadium) gamepad is connected to the USB port on the computer if a USB to Serial converter. A step is daisy chanied to the controller and the other stage Garland at the first stage.

    To our application had to continually check the status and position of the steps X and Y. Because the joystick also returns responses when a request is sent to all devices, I need to send applications individually; for example. one request per order per device, making it a total of 4 orders. It takes care of the error returned by the controller. The problem, however, is that after a while the freezing of the program or the computer stops and restarts. It is located about 13 minutes (on average) after the start of the program. It also happens even when no command is sent to the devices. I put 50 ms delay before each send two commands (position and status) by device. Basically, the application waits for 50ms before sending two commands for X stage and the receipt of the response and when everything is done with X stage, he expects another 50 ms to do the same for step Y. Should this procedure goes on until the application is stopped. But as I said, there is a problem. Now, I guess the problem is that serial port buffer overflows. He chose to increase the delay time, but if it works to solve the problem, then I have no choice!

    I would appreciate any thoughts and comments!

    After a lot of time to experiment, I am convinced that the issue was with adapter Profilic.
