  • Satellite L850-1HP not configure downloaded Windows Update files

    My laptop was having problems on the first day that first the CD-ROM not open, then the webcam and the microphone switch off forever and can not be turned on again never and finally, this summer, my computer laptop would not connect to any WIFI network at all, it will still fail.

    I went to the place where I bought it for support, they sent for repairs, a week later, I'll be back, it is restored back to factory settings, all seemed well, CD ROM functional... Webcam and microphone too.

    So I thought I would check around and start things tyding for my taste, and then I realize that I need to download updates from Windows Update, so I do it, on 100 + updates, I start to download, but they do not download until the 20th minute that it is stuck at 0% What seemed fishy to me, because then he just jumped up to 10% and progressed forward.

    After downloading the updates, or so he said she had, I restart the laptop in to get their working and configured properly.

    There can be no. After I clicked on restart, it began to close, saying it is to configure and to 20-30%, it restarts, and then he charged to the top of the screen, even saying that he configures updates, then he said that he failed and said it restore the data back to normal, that he never scare made.

    After about two hours of waiting so he could do nothing at all, I restart the PC, the same thing.

    Restart again but this time I restore things settings once more, takes me about 1 hour with a full erase of the data (of course the rest of the OS and toshiba apps too) all implemented naming stuff, and accept the terms and conditions, blah blah, operating system starts, I check everything and restart.

    After the reboot, I decide not to configure anything until I downloaded all the windows updates, so I do just that, BUT I get the same error again, sneaky - slow download of updates, restart and get the same message that it cannot configure updates and wait forever-long for the laptop to "restore" data back to normal which she didn't do, once again.

    I'm completely helpless as to what I should do, I restored factory once more but this time I'll just wait for some feedback or try to make everything I find on these forums it is useful.

    Help, please.

    Hi grt_49,

    Thank you for writing to Microsoft answers Community Forums.

    This proxy are you running?

    Error 0x80072F78 - invalid server response it is usually due to the power of attorney.

    Try the following:

    Check the connection settings:

    Open Internet Explorer > tools > Internet Options > connections > LAN settings

    Check or uncheck the option 'automatically detect settings '.

    Apply the changes, quit Internet Explorer and try Windows Update again.

    Error 0x80072F78 is usually caused by the proxy or the firewall is not blocking issues.

    You have active port 443?

    Can we try without going through the proxy server to eliminate this possibility?

    You use a firewall?

    You block Active X controls?

    What follows is critical sites for Windows Update, make sure that they are trustedn & easily accessible from your computer.
