the window update crashes my computer

I have a lenovo thinkpad t400 and running vista business SP2 32-bit.

I have this problem since October, it seems after I install an update from the my computer window will sometimes freeze and hang on to the login page of window or when it is in the window, so I have to reset my computer hard.  Another problem, it's after I did the update, my laptop can't use the software as Rescure and recovery thinkpad thinkvantage to create return.  my laptop hangs as if I try to create a back up.

I try to reset my laptop to factory setting.  at that time, my laptop was able to use the thinkvantage software. but once again, when I install the update of the window. This won't happen again.

I called lenovo, they said that it more resembles a number rather than lenovo window, so they ask me to contact microsoft.  but I try to hv eamil them a few times... and they never getting to me...

also, I try to use the online chat thing to make contact at the times office, but for some reason, they said my product key for window does not work. so I wonder what is happening.

Thank you...

Thank you for always answering...

last updated.

I totally forgot the section Performance and reliability because...

I called lenovo last Tuesday morning telling them that the hard drive fail a test on the thinkvantage Toolbox.
so... they have no excuse for not giving me a new hard drive.

I got my new hard drive on a Friday... and I have install windows7 professional in my thinkpad t400.
took me alll night to install all drivers and programs.

now my laptop is very new on the inside. new motherboard + the new hard drive.
I try to use rescure & thinkpad recovery more.

instead... I use this programms "Acronis True Image Home 2010" call to make a backup of my system.
and created a bootable media for my laptop.
hope this work well...

I m actually quite impress with windows7 coz boot time and stop time on the increase...
and use less ram for my laptop... the last week when I was riding again vista... the use of the ram was abouut 70% with a few browser firefox and MS word...

now, it's just 50-60% ram usage...

Hey DutchyDoo what OS are you using?

  • Windows 7 Home Premium x 64: activation of the service Windows Update crashes my computer after upgrade RAM

    A few days ago I had two sticks of 2 GB GSkill RAM by mail. Here's the same brand, model and size as the pair currently installed (obviously). (Sticks alternate according to the specifications of the card from my mother)

    After you have installed the new RAM and the computer starts up, it freezes within about 30 seconds of connection. Before installing the new sticks, I had no problem whatsoever.

    My first thought is that I sit the RAM properly, then I go and reinstall it. I start, and the same thing happens.

    So obviously this RAM must be bad, right? When I take out news, not gel. Ah, but when I remove the OLD stuff and use new instead, I ALSO no gel. So maybe it is not the RAM.

    Then I reboot in safe mode. No gel. Interesting. I opened the window 'System' and it says "memory (RAM) installed: 4.00 GB ', which is correct." I opened CPU - Z, and it reports also 4 GB of memory. I run a few hours and have no problems whatsoever. So I say to myself, there must be either a Windows service or a 3rd party service is causing the issue and not the new RAM.

    I disable all services of 3rd parties and restart in normal mode. It freezes. OK, so maybe (though unlikely) I have a virus any (I say probably not because I have to) run the module additional firefox NoScript, and set to block all flash, javascript, xss, iframes, etc. - in other words, only allow to my whitelist and B) I have Windows Firewall and running McAffee and updated.). But I decided to first try Windows services for the hell of it.

    So I enable only the services that start in safe mode as my reference, disabling the rest via services.msc. I start normally and not gel. Great, then maybe it is a Windows service. I start which allows one service after another without any problem. I get to the bottom of the list and select the Windows Update service. Within literally 10 seconds my computer crashes. Large.

    As a validation test, I put all services back to the base line of safe mode and only allow Windows Update. I start normally, and again once it freezes.

    Another test of validation, I start with all normal, but disable Windows Update. Do not freeze. I'm going to start Windows Update. Yet once, it freezes for about 10 seconds. So clearly something is in place.

    As a third and final sanity check, I remove the new RAM and run a Windows Update. He finds a few optional updates, but not critical. My system is up2date.

    My only attempt to solve this problem so far was to backup all Windows Update DLLs (C:\windows\system32\wu*.dll, although I don't know if these are good) and do a scan sfc to replace them with copies of 'good '. It did not work.

    So my question is:

    Why cares Windows Update that I have 4 GB of memory installed?

    Thank you

    1. I 'upgraded' from the RC of Windows 7 x 64 for Win 7 x 64 Home Premium.

    2. I use McAfee VirusScan Enterprise 8.7.0i, DAT version 6060, Scan Engine 5400.1158

    3 No.

    4. No, I put together this computer myself.

    To answer my previous posts:

    I think the USB storage is a separate issue. And.

    I think I * may * have solved the problem of origin with one or more of the following (don't know who):

    • Updated the software of the chipset of the card from my mother.
    • Updated HD Windows audio drivers to the recommended ASUS (Realtek) HD audio drivers
    • Updated since Windows installed NVIDIA display drivers for version NVIDIA WHQL.
    • Increased my tRFC (refresh time of line) to 70 52 clocks clocks. Set my GSKILL DRAM voltage recommended by 2.1V. Off the SPD DRAM configuration (I read that ASUS is not entirely based on the SPD and can affect things on its own).

    I had WU for 20 minutes from writing this post without a freeze, so we'll see. (Previously, it would freeze within 10 seconds of turning on WU)

  • Windows Update froze my computer

    My Windows XP pro service pack 3 Auto turned into a brick.  (IE8)  I finally used in June 2013, and it worked very well.  On October 12, 2013 I turned it on and it does nothing.  The problem was caused by something that happened when the aircraft attempted to do the automatic update of Windows.  I managed to open the Task Manager and saw the CPU pegged at 100%.  The culprit was one of the svchost file.  So then I used the utility windows Explorer process to identify and disable the problem, which was windows update file.  With the windows update file stopped, the machine works normally.  I tried to make the windows manually update and had no success.  The cpu went to 100% and the machine froze.  I left it on all night, looking for updates and the morning revealed that he had tried to install an update, but the installation failed.  I'm guessing that some update issued between June and October 12 is the cause.  Can anyone give me some ideas on how to correct the problem, other than leaving the updates turned off.

    Hallelujah! I have my computer back.  Here's what I had to do.

    1. I did a fresh install of Windows XP Pro (not a repair, but I formatted the hard drive first).
    2 installed service pack 2 on a drive that I had, but it is available on the web, if you're looking for.
    3 installed the service pack 3 on the web (do a search found).
    4 tried to do the Windows updates, but could not. Kept getting error 0x8024D001.  So I did a search on this error message and found that I needed to install an update from Windows Update version. I found this one installed it.  Here's where I got it from.

    5. the new program Windows Update worked and I was off to the races. Must have been at least 200 updates. Had to reboot and run Windows update several times to get all the. But in the end, I have the machine is working back again.
