    Hello

    I get very frustrated by that. I restarted my computer and updates began to install automatically. However, he stopped and then I got the message "failure Configuring Windows Updates. Restoration of the changes. Do not turn off your computer. I waited for an hour and a half, and nothing happens.

    I read of fixes for this. but they say I have to restart the computer or access here or there, BUT I can't do it. It is stuck on the screen with the message, and I'm not supposed to turn it off. What should I do?

    I think it is absurd that the computer does not ask me if I want to install the updates now or later. What happens if I had to give a presentation in school or I was in a business meeting? In addition, how is it possible that your own updates to dirty computers? HOW? Has any sense at all. You force me to update and your update of the computer mess.

    I need to know what to do, I need to access my computer. I've lost enough time already.

  • My Dell Latitude Tablet is stuck on 'Failure to configure Windows updates from reinstatement of changes' (Windows 8)

    It was stuck on this during about 3 hours and I desperately need to use... It is essentially new from today, as I had mail. I really don't understand why this is happening and I can't find a way to fix.

    From what Ive seen in similar forums, that I'll post things that do not work in my situation.

    • I don't have any sort of keyboard or mouse for this tablet.
    • I tried to restart the flight button and button / stop
    • I took the battery.
    • I do not have a more 8 GB USB so I can't use a recovery.

    Honestly, I'm so frustrated because I both want and need to use it for school... I don't have the time and money to run around to try to find a larger USB... at least not for a few days or a week. If no indication as to what is wrong and all the other options would be very appreciated.

    Hi Alex,

    I understand the inconvenience caused to you due to this problem. Installation of Windows Update takes this long period. It seems to be a problem with the Windows Update components. You could also face this problem at any time update does not install correctly and it is not to let any other updates to settle.

    As you mentioned that this is a new feature by Dell I suggest you contact the manufacturer or point of purchase. You can contact the Dell forums on the information provided below.

  • 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.

  • Windows Update - restored older restore point but updates of today are still there.

    Tonight, I did a Windows Update on my machine Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. Updates all the installed, but my machine would not reboot - it updates of Windows has changed something in the BIOS and UEFI Windows security settings do not allow the machine to start. I managed to get around this by changing a setting in the BIOS and I am now in my machine.

    I decided to go back to a restore point plu - I already have an of 4 days ago, and Windows indicates that the restore worked.

    I just went into Windows Update, and while it is said my last update was November 2015 (which she was), when I go to the list of installed updates, all updates from today (August 20, 2016) are still showing as installed. When I go into the menu "uninstall upgrades", none of the updates from today make their appearance.  If something went seriously wrong.

    I'm trying to see if there are new updates and it is suspended. Not surprising given my machine is now so confused.

    Any ideas?

    It is not necessarily wrong. Updates listed under the heading "Update history" usually are deleted, even if uninstalled or restored. Hanging, too, is a common phenomenon these days. Install the latest version of the cumulative update, available in July 2016 fix Windows client:

  • Windows 8 stuck on configuration of windows update. (at 13%)

    Hello world

    I bought 2 new laptops yesterday with 8 current running windows.

    I get a disturbing problem with updates windows has automatically downloaded and then when the computer has restarted and then it stuck on 13%.

    It is the screen I see.

    Configuration of the windows updates

    13% complete

    Do not turn off your computer

    It has restarted once during Setup and that I write a message displays that it has failed and will try again. ? ! ?

    still stuck on 13%

    didn't find anything on here or on google then maybe a very recent problem? Thank you

    Lewis

    Answer:

    These are the problems

    1.

    stuck at 13% not able to access safe mode and move is not out of the screen for more than an hour

    2.

    stuck at 13% and able to access updates and safe mode back after 45 min.

    Unfortunately, if you have the first problem that you are drunk, take it back to the shop!

    For the second problem, there is a fix and its all down to your audio drivers. somehow the update was not compatible with some sound card drivers.

    Here are the steps:

    1. go in Control Panel

    (on the startup type Control Panel)

    2. click on system and security

    3. click on system

    4. click on Device Manager

    Scroll down and click on sound, video and game controllers

    I uninstalled and deleted IDT high definition audio CODEC

    When does update and restart.

    computer will bring up to 35% (in some places for example 15% its slow but not moving not on) and the attempt to restart, will be stuck on the screen so close power by pressing the power button and turn on.

    This now restart the laptop and continue the configuration.

    now, some people have had problems with windows 8 do not install the drivers that you have deleted from the system, everything you do is look on Google for the driver that you are looking for and then download and install.

    and their you go, your computer is ready to use

    Microsoft should have found this problem and maybe even because it is their own site in question.

    more problems made me know!
