  • Windows updates installed and now I can not start vista normally

    Hello, I have a problem starting my OS after windows updates to install. I have a laptop Dell Studio 1737 running Windows Vista SP1 x 64

    I installed the windows updates and they are normally installed on the closed part (steps 1 and 2 of 3) but the computer restarted once he ran Microsoft Corporation with the Green loading bar animation. He hung there for quite a long time as usual but I thought it had to do with updates. so after that the animation, the screen off, turned back on and it was completely black. a mouse jumped out for about 10 seconds, then disappeared. I noticed that the hard drive light stopped flashing and there is no other activity after that. CTRL-Alt-Del does nothing. So I had to hold the power button and restart. This time I used Safe Mode to let it boot. He traveled the drivers being loaded and hung up "pilot charge: \SystemRoot\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys ', but eventually started. After starting, it linked the part "Configuring updates step 3 of 3" 0% to 100% and then just stood there and the mouse began to blink. Yet once, there was very little hard drive being indicated by light activity. After 5 minutes, it was clear, he was not any progress made by letting it continue. Yet once, forced another shut down.

    I repeated the process with the same results from the point to let start normally to force stop and meet at configuring updates step 3 of 3 to 100% but frozen in safe mode. I was perplexed what to do because I could not access the computer at all even in SafeMode! I forced the closing down and grown up recovery tools and tried to startup repair. has nothing. I tried the system restore. It is interesting that told me I had NO restore points and yet I had just installed one small not updated but there is 30 minutes. Also, I can't imagine there is no restore point after having owned this laptop for almost 4 years. I took to my faithful Tablet for some Google-ing in depth on this particular issue in the hope of finding a solution. Well, I came across an article that leaves me at least cancel the thing trying to get up-to-date and freezing. It required that use you recovery command prompt and delete the C:\Windows\winsxs\pending,xml file. After the reboot (in safe mode) Finally I could connect and access my files save them! Finally! only it isn't the end of the problem. I still cannot start normally. to do this, the above-mentioned actions of when I try to boot normally.
    I tried so much google - lies about different things, it might be and who either do not resolve problem or steps they indicate to tell me to change a registry entry to something which in my machine is already what they say before it takes. Also, I can't uninstall updates because the windows update program does not open in safe mode. I have run chkdsk and nothing. I stopped everything to boot at startup, with the exception of microsoft. I uninstalled any program that can run at startup. I ran an anti-virus (Avast & Norton separately) and lift you own. I have a ntbtlog.txt I can post if necessary. honestly, I don't know where to turn at this point, except for here. If no luck here ill get my backup files, take my computer to a local store and have them diagnose or if worse comes to the worst case, a clean format and reinstall that is not presented.
    Thank you for any advise on this issue, as I don't know what to do next.

    What I did I tried to disable the network, modem and audio drivers. It took time, but start normally thereafter, but he made a strange (and continuous) boot process he never has ever done before. Once in normal mode, I started to allow the drivers one by one and it turned out to be one for the audio driver to date. During this audio driver was activated it will disable all entries as the trackpad, keyboard, USB and particularly hard drive! so it would freeze almost instantly after activation there and closes one forced would be necessary. Device Manager Microsoft told me this audio driver was updated, but it wasn't. The company that provided the audio drivers had changed the names through the merger or buyout, or something and the new audio drivers were under the new name. A very strange situation.

    I had to search around and eventually find the latest drivers for my system setup and audio on dell's website, and it said it was a "Recommended" update This update of the driver should be mandatory if you want to continue using your computer! It is one of the most used audio dell service providers! Why he would only recommend?
    In any case, thank you Jeremy for your time and help!

    I reinstalled Windows Vista and now I can't run "repair your computer". I need to do this because I'm missing a few scripts.  What should I do to fix this

    Hello

    Run the sfc/scannow command.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929833

    Use the (SFC.exe) System File Checker tool to determine which file is causing the problem and then replace the file. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click principally madeprograms,Accessories, right-clickguest, and then clickrun as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or clickallow.
    2. Type the following command and press ENTER:
      sfc/scannow

      The sfc/scannow command analyzes all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with appropriate Microsoft versions

    If SFC detects the main problems it can't fix you may need to borrow a Microsoft dvd vista not an acer, HP etc. recovery disk and do a repair installation

  • I've just updated to the latest version and now I can not manually type in the URL. I can't get to a new page if I click on a link.

    I've just updated to the latest version of Firefox 32.0.3 today and now I can not manually type in the URL. I can't get to a new page if I click on a link. I had to use - gasp - Chrome just to get to this help page!

    I tried to restart Firefox.
    I can type (not a keyboard problem), but the browser never tries to go to URL, when I hit enter

  • I update my Firefox latest version 32.0, and now I can not upload anythink, can you help me

    I think that last week, I update my Firefox latest version 32.0, and now I can not upload anythink, can you help me - in more detailed - when I try to download a file and save it to my pc it remains on 99%, write the time unknown and not donwload, that is even if I try to open and file - means 'open' clieck not records. I try with different brouzer and quote different and everythink work very well. Problem is only on firefox. I try and that "in the address bar, type about: config and press ENTER." The subject: config "This might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
    Click on I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about: config page. A list of parameters must appear
    Filter the list by typing in the search bar at top. Enter scanWhenDone. Now you should find the preference "browser.download.scanWhenDone".
    Double-click this preference to set the value to false. "
    But still a problem.

    It's the recent9 b 32.0 and it has been fixed and will be in the build 32.0 then, probably the RC1 build 32.0 if normally such a fix would be a beta version as 32.0b10. The release is Tuesday next so little time. Type of topic: config location bar (address) and you can try to change the empty value of browser.safebrowsing.appRepURL in the meantime. If an empty value does not work then put in https://sb-ssl.google.com/safebrowsing/clientreport/download?key=%GOOGLE_API_KEY%
