My computer is stuck in the loop "Update Configuration". Boots only in safe mode.

My computer is stuck in the loop "Update Configuration". Boots only in safe mode. I tried to do a system restore, but an error message appears that says:

To perform an offline system restore, you must specify which Windows installation you want to restore. For example, if the installation is in "C:\Windows:" should be restored, enter the following command: rstrui.exe/OFFLINE:C\Windows

I typed in the "run" command, and it didn't work either. VIsta came installed on the computer, so I don't have a disc to insert and reboot with. Help, please!
Thanks, Ben

OK, I found how to fix this problem.

  • Computer is stuck on the screen updates

    You just bought a Dell desktop computer new with Windows 7 64 bit installed.  Fired all my files, pictures, etc installed printers, scanner. Now 2 days later, I hit restart and a screen pops up saying update 42 55 it stuck there.  After 10 hours, I tried to restart and got the same screen.  I then tried to reboot in safe mode using the F8 key, this does not work either.  Then, I turned off the machine and tried to restart with the rescue disk, I created the day I got the machine.  Just, it goes back to the screen updating and is sitting there with the small circle twirling away!  How can I solve this problem?

    When the first system boot, before Windows loads (the first thing that appears when Windows starts to load is the update progress screen), there should be a page that tells you what button to push to access the settings configuration (Setup) or start-up.

    Make sure there is no Dell page appear when the system first boots , which shows the key you need to press to enter the boot or configuration setttings?

    Since you have No message from the system model that I asked, tried by pressing the F2 key when you turn on the system.

    If the update progress screen appears instead of the startup configuration, shut down, reboot and try the F10 key.

    If none of these keys work, then you will need to contact Dell.

  • Service pack update is stuck in the loop: 3 3 100%

    Hello.  My wife's cell phone is having this problem after trying to install Service Pack 1 for its Vista Home Premium.
    He joined 'Update 3 3 100% ', then he sits for a while before restarting the whole routine - again and again.  We tried to turn it off, and he took over just after turn it on again.  There is no error code.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Dave,.

    Thanks for posting on the Microsoft answers Forums

    Press and hold the power button until your pc is turned off completely.
    then while the computer is turn on before it gets to the loading windows screen, press F8 key several times until you see
    These options
    (With the arrow keys and down, choose "Last known good configuration" then press enter)
    Safe mode
    Safe mode (with networking)
    Last known good configuration<>
    .
    .
    .
    If this does not work, restart your computer. Perform the same steps, but rather start in SafeMode with network. When you're on the desktop, try to do windows updates and stop and start again. After the updates installed successfully restart computer and boot up normally this time.
    When the computer comes back again to run updates again.

    Please post back and let us know if this information was useful or if you are still needing help.

  • computer is stuck in the screen that lets you choose Safe mode or start normally

    Original title: stuck

    My computer is stuck in the screen that lets you choose Safe mode or start normally. When I choose that it just goes back to the same screen. stuck in this screen

    If there is a problem starting, XP is configured to automatically try to start again and you can stuck in a loop not being able to go beyond the screen boot options, or none of these startup options you choose will work only.

    Sometimes, when XP has a problem starting or falls down and tries to start again, it will give you a "short" menu of boot options and none of them will appear to be good to get your system going again.  You have tried them all!

    The options are similar to the Advanced Boot Options menu XP, but the only option that you need (disable automatic error system reboot) are not offered, because XP went too far during the boot process and offers a limited number of boot options.

    If this is the case, you must call Options menu advanced boot yourself until you do not see the option:

    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    When you get the XP Advanced Options correct start menu you want to see, he has options on it like these:

    Safe mode
    Safe mode with networking
    Safe mode with command prompt

    Enable Boot logging
    Enable VGA mode
    Last good Configuration known (your most recent settings that worked)
    Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
    Debug mode
    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    Start Windows normally
    Reset
    Return to OS Choices Menu

    You need to choose in this menu is the option:

    Disable the automatic restart in the event of system failure

    Then if XP does not start normally, you will see an error screen with information and clues about the problem and then you can decide what to do next.

    If you do not see the automatic restart on system failure option turn it off, you must reset your system and start typing the key F8 on the keyboard until you see her disable automatic restart on system failure option.

    If you miss the window of opportunity F8, you must try again and start tapping the F8 key with more urgency (earlier and more frequently) until you see disable automatic restart on system failure, and then select.

    You must keep trying the F8 menu until you see disable automatic restart on system failure option, and select it.

    If your system has a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), we need to know what the screen says:

    Here's a BSOD example showing information you provide:

    http://TechRepublic.com.com/i/tr/downloads/images/bsod_a.jpg

    Send for the nose and the Red arrows (3 to 4 lines total).

    Send all * line STOP message since there are clues in the 4 parameters.

    If it looks like there is some kind of name listed in the STOP message file, send this line also.

    Ignore the boring text unless it seems important to you.  We know what a BSOD looks like, we need to know what your BSOD looks like.

    Answering queries and results report of the disable automatic restart on system failure screen and you can decide what to do next.

  • HP w1907: implementation gets stuck to the 'HP invent' blue Boot Screen

    Hi all

    I have HP w1907 desktop... I use it since 2008.
    Last month I format to have the new windows 7 in it... Previously I was also working with win7 Ultimate.

    But it's keep restarting after the use of 4-5 minutes and so I installed the entire operating system yet.

    It worked very well... after 3-4 weeks, when I started it, it gets stuck at the 'HP invent' blue Boot Screen.

    This display has the instructions to enter the "Boot Menu", "Setup" and "System Recovery" by pressing key "F11" aor "Esc", "F10".  It is just there for ever.

    If I try to enter the 'Boot' Menu by pressing the 'Esc' key, I get the message "Loading Boot Menu... ", but then it hangs there forever just.  If I try to enter the "Setup" Menu, I get a similar result - it says 'enter the Setup... ". "and just hangs there.  By pressing the "F11" key does not seem to do anything.

    Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Searching the forums I tried to reset the BIOS - who I've got from here:

    and

    After doing this too, the result is null

    Please help me...

    I'm in a hurry...

    Thank you.

    Date and the incorrect time can certainly cause problems.  What happens usually, however, is that the sites Web will not be opened because the State in which the certificate is not up-to-date.  I have not heard of the time and date causing the computer does not start.  I think that you need to change the CMOS battery.  Here's a guide on how to change it.  The guide has also some good troubleshooting information.

    Once the battery has been replaced, we'll see what happens.

  • Got paper stuck in the printer and now will only print proofs. How to reset the printer

    Got paper stuck in the printer and now will only print proofs. How to reset the printer

    It looks like you may have some saved jobs in your queue that need to be removed.

    Here's how:

    To clear the print queue, stop the print spooler service and delete all the jobs/print pending.
       
    You cannot delete all print jobs in the queue so that the Print Spooler Service is running.
          
    To stop the Print Spooler Service, click Start, run and enter in the box:
           
    services.msc
           
    Click OK to open the Services Applet.
           
    Locate the Print Spooler Service, right click and choose 'Properties' and then click on the "Stop" button to stop the Print Spooler Service is running.
       
    The option "Startup Type" of Service properties print spooler is usually set to "Automatic" (which is now a good time to check it out).
       
    If the "Startup type" is not set to "Automatic", set the "Startup type" to "Automatic" If that is your desire (which now is the time to check it out).

    Do not try to start or restart the Print Spooler Service immediately.  You must remove all print jobs backed up first...
       
    Then, delete all updates pending upward and forward to printing from XP.  If they do not print before, you will need to send the to the printer again.
       
    Using Windows Explorer, navigate to the following folder (assuming that Windows is installed on your C drive):
       
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\spool\PRINTERS
           
    Delete all the print jobs in queue (select and delete all the files) in the folder if the folder is without waiting for print jobs.  The folder must be empty when you are finished.
           
    Reboot your system and check the Print Spooler Service again to make sure the Print Spooler Service restarts automatically restart (given that the startup type is set to automatic).
       
    After the reboot, check again the Spooler Service for printing and the 'Status' column for the print spooler must be read "started."

    Submit new failure of print jobs.

  • After you have installed SP3 (on XP with SP2), the PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode

    After you install SP3, PC does not restart in normal mode, only in safe mode, without giving a clear indication of what is the problem or how to fix it - other than say to check settings in the Panel (not very useful).

    PC is a Compaq Presario desktop with AMD processor, model #: SR1720AN product #: EL540AA-ABG

    I reinstalled the operating system recovery disks, which reformats HD and installed XP with SP2.

    I then installed the SP3 from a flashdrive (361 MB files). Everything went without hiccups, but final restarts, he won't get to normal mode, safe mode only.

    I did it twice.

    Any ideas? Thank you.

    Here are the specifications of your desktop Compaq Presario SR1720AN. According to the specification, this model comes with a processor AMD and Windows XP Home Edition SP2 installed at the factory. According to your description, it seems that the HP recovery discs may have been poorly photographed for an AMD-based computer. Please see this Microsoft article and this HP document about your problem.

    To solve your problem, please reinstall Windows XP SP2 by booting from your HP recovery disks. After Windows XP SP2 is complete restored and that your computer is operational, download the "Windows XP SP3 with AMD CPU upgrade utility." Run this utility, and then restart your computer. Then download the "Windows XP Service Pack 3 Package of Network Installation" for it professionals. You can also try to use the SP3 Installer on your USB. Install the update to Windows XP SP3 and then restart when you are prompted to.

    This solve your problem?

  • Windows updates can be installed in safe mode with networking?

    Re: Vista Home Premium 32 bit w/sp2.

    Windows update takes forever to download and even more time to install any update files. Then it configures when stopping down, then he sets up when power is on, oops one of your edits was not able to install and all the process begins again. I absolutely refuse to let the process run on its own if it is not an option. I personally oversee what, when and if something moved at all. I was wondering if updates can be installed in safe mode with network for a minimum amount of system resources are used and this could help speed up things a bit.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

  • Vista: Cascade issues, ending in Mode without failure. Can't make the necessary changes to get out of Safe Mode.

    First of all, I use Vista Home Premium on a Toshiba Satellite P205-S7469. Recently had a problem with Office 2007 - after three years, he suddenly asked for the key, that he refused.

    With the help of the MS Support, we uninstalled and reinstalled Office 2007.

    Uninstall Office 2007 also uninstalled a certain number of updates. Over the next few days, update submitted updates for installation, I did.

    Then, email web-based Yahoo has stopped working. Went through several days to uninstall then reinstall updates. Never could say update caused the problem, but it is solved.

    Then, Microsoft Security Essentials began to malfunction, causing very long boots first and not automatically start. Make several settings to automatically load services, forums and for a day or two, it worked. Then no. Necessary that I manually start each time you start and had three or four attempts with waiting times, every time.

    Uninstalled then reinstalling MSE, then ran Live OneCare Safety Scanner.

    Also, all of a sudden, I have acquired an 'unknown device', which repeatedly invites me to install a driver. It is not known (to me as well as to the computer), we find no driver. Tried to disable the device, think that may have contributed to this problem, as well.

    It seems that LOSS may have removed items from the registry. I tried to use the system restore, but don't think it worked, and SR does not work with the updated - uninstall updates or to find and install new updates. It seems that Safe Mode does allow me to do something to help me, but I can't seem to get by.

    Hi renewbee,

    You can configure the computer to boot and check if the problem persists. It will start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs and helps eliminate software conflicts.

    The following link has steps showing how to perform the clean boot: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: Please make sure that the computer is configured to start as usual according to step 7 of the article: how to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
