  • Cannot install Sierra because updating Photos at a standstill

    Apparently, the new Sierra OS included an update of Photos.  Started Photos updated first, it worked for ~ 30hours 'building a library '.  Tried to complete installation of Sierra, which requires a reboot - of course all Apps must close to restart, pictures will not close because the library construction!  But now the small progress whirly ball is not swirling and there is no options in the Photos menu-all gray, Photos Version 1.0.1 (215.65.0).  I'm afraid force quit closing snack takes pictures of my 16000 images with it.  Have they the time machine upwards.

    Should I force Quits Photos and install the Sierra, then restart photos or is there something else to do?

    I'm confused by the title of your topic, then the body of your message.  Did you install Sierra?  Or are you trying to rebuild your current photo library with your current Photos app before moving on to the Sierra? Photo is part of the upgrade of the Sierra and cannot prevent the installation of Sierra.

    What is your library?  If it is very large that this moment may be offline.  It is small and because you have a TM backup go and force quit Photos.

    Where is your library?  If it's on an external hard drive that is how HD formatted and connected to your Mac?

  • My update of the operating system software is at a standstill. What should I do?

    I activated the download of the last software update Apple for my MacBook Pro, and it has been delayed for well over an hour, to about two - thirds of the way into the bar indication. What can I do?

    Make sure that your Mac meets the requirements of the Sierra > macOS - how updated - Apple

    Computers Mac introduced end 2009 or later can be upgraded to macOS Sierra.

    General requirements

    • OS X 10.7.5 or later version
    • 2 GB memory
    • 8.8 GB of available storage
    • Some features require an Apple ID; conditions apply.
    • Some features require a compatible Internet service provider; charges may apply.
  • My automatic updates are set to run on a certain day at a given time, but they seem to run when they like, which slows everything down to a standstill. Why does this happen?

    It is configured to run on Sunday at 10:00 he had run tonight at 7.00 p .m

    Make sure you have Latest Windows Update Agent.  You can change the setting to download and then provide information to install just to check that it is downloading at the right time.  Also, if you run Windows update, then select the 'review your update history' to see if an update had failed and that they had tried to install up to this date.

  • Windows Update program stand-alone installation running - to a standstill

    Windows Update does not work, just hangs.  INSTALLED

    The system for Windows 7 for x 64 systems update tool (KB947821) [October 2014]

    BECAUSE IT WAS NOT LISTED AS AN INSTALLED UPDATE.  This tool is being offered because an inconsistency was found in the store Windows Service that may prevent the installation of future updates, service packs, and software.

    Now Windows Update Standalone Installer running and cannot cancel.

    The windows update worked for some updates on 08/08/16 in the .net framework and MS Office.  It will just be updated, the Windows software.  I have Windows 7 SP1 - came with the laptop.

    Unfortunately, if you visit the page MS lately to download Ko (and a few other KBs) get to cooktop page on the KB still seem to work but when you try to start the download, you might get one of two results:

    Or maybe you will see this (but never begin to download):

    Which ALWAYS seems to work to get the download is to visit the Microsoft Update that requires using Internet Explorercatalog.

    Copy and paste this URL in the address bar of Internet Explorer:


    Search for the update of your desire:

    Add then the KBs you need to your shopping cart, then view or download the contents of your basket and install it / them.

    See here for more details:


    So we can suggest a link which could sometimes work perhaps (https://support.microsoft.com/kb/3172605) or we can suggest you to use IE to go directly to the page catalog of update of MS where downloads seem to work all the time.

  • After the update to El Capitan 10.11.6 I'm more able to use Excel

    I've updated a Mac Air to version 10.11.6. After the upgrade I'm more able to delete rows in Excel. The error is "Alert not enough memory" file is only 4.7 MB and air shows that I have 1 GB free memory. Is this a bug, and if so is there a work around available? I came to a standstill. worked quite happily on the sheet before the upgrade

    Try to reinstall the update by using this file: Download OS X El Capitan 10.11.6 Combo Update. It can solve the problem, but if it is not the case, then you must reinstall OS X. It is not a bug in Excel because I did not have such a problem arise on my system. However, an alert memory you reported is an OS X error alert that you have not enough memory to continue. Quit all other open applications to free up more memory. See if that helps. Also make sure that report is not disk space.

  • Satellite A660 - 18 BIOS update & fails (re-visited) HARD drive recovery

    Referring to an old thread from my friends...

    I tried earlier to update the BIOS of v1.80 for v1.90 (whether by the automatic update tool Service Station and the direct download of the update of the BIOS).

    Whenever the update of the BIOS ran, he abandoned arguing that the battery was low (it was not), alternating current was not on (it is) and the existing BIOS version was superior to the new version (it wasn't).

    The real problem seems to be that the version of the BIOS (as shown in "Toshiba HWSetup") is:

    + The BIOS version = V234567890. 00/00/00000000000 +.
    + Version EC = 1.80 +.

    However, in the Diagnostic PC Toshiba tool the BIOS version on the page of basic information is correctly reported as 1.80

    At the point where I couldn't be worth blat my disc with the original image and try again. I was hoping that Toshiba would set the BIOS update to fix the problem. Didn't happen.

    They released v2.00 BIOS in June 2011 and would not always up to date. So I backed up my data and tried to blat of the machine to factory State. What a nightmare...

    The recovery image doesn't work well at all!

    The first bit works (the original partition creation and image copy), but after the startup of Windows and the script factory Toshiba intervenes, all sorts of problems begin.

    First of all, the thing stuck several times in a process of "assessment of system performance. This happens in several phases of reboots because the drivers are installed. Then there's a bunch of bug script error messages and DMI analyze the errors you will need to click on ' close and do not report the crash "type dialog. What makes it more difficult is that the Toshiba factory configuration script sets up a blank page trying to see you on what the bureau is to be avoided. Even if you try to pass in the Manager of tasks to complete the process deadlocked, it gives you a few seconds grace before forcing the Office to lock and hide behind the white screen again. If you're quick and good time, you can stop the evaluation of performance at a standstill (I think it's just the thing to the Windows Experience score). Same thing to reject the other boxes of error...

    Finally, I arrived at the end of the script and the machine was built with all of the original software.

    The program HWSetup still reports the version of BIOS of nonsense and the PC Diagnostic tool always reports it correctly.

    The Service Station program now does not even start. It crashes with a message + "request the Toshiba Service Station could not initialize. Try to restart or reinstall the application. » +. I downloaded the last being on the website and installed... To be hosted later with the same message.

    Program update direct BIOS for v2.00 made his usual thing you ask that the current BIOS version is greater than 200 and abandonment.

    I even read in a FAQ that some recovery routines do not work correctly with more than 4 GB of RAM (I have 8 GB). So I did all of this once again with only 4 GB installed and the script was just as broken for 4 GB 8 GB.

    I ran PC complete diagnosis for machine test suite and it turned up nothing.

    A little confused now... Maybe time to log a failure while I have a few more months of warranty left. But the machine actually works, just can't update the BIOS. Would be my luck if a problem arose just after the warranty has expired, and they said 'just update the BIOS...

    In front of me, I 3 laptop years. Over the past three years, Toshiba has offered 3 BIOS updates. I don t care about it and still use the original version that I got with my laptop. I want to say, why change anything and start this risky If update everything works fine and it does.

    Several times I have read here that people write about the problems of updating the BIOS and damaged BIOS. This risk does not apply to me just having the latest version.

    Anyway, if you want to have all past orders on your laptop, it is without a doubt your legitimate right. In General, the BIOS updates are tested before Toshiba offers for download so I really put t understand why you have this kind of problems. The problem with the installation of recovery is also strange.

    A few months ago, a friend of mine bought A660 and I helped him create recovery DVDs, and we also tested the recovery procedure everything including the three options:
    Back to out-of-box state
    Recover without changing the hard drive partitions
    Get a custom size partition

    Everything worked perfectly so I m really confused about everything you write.

    Unfortunately, I can't help you with this. When I could have your laptop in front of me to see exactly what is happening, it will be much easier to understand all of this.
    I updated the BIOS on different laptops, and I got lucky because every time that everything was fine.

    Your laptop is guaranteed valid so I recommend you contact Toshiba service provider in your country and ask for assistance.
