Windows Vista will not install Service Pack 1

Hello, I have an Acer laptop that has Windows Vista 32-bit Basic on it.  I did a factory reset on it and started to update Windows.  It says it installs successfully in 30 seconds about, but when you do another search that Service Pack 1 is found as a update and Service pack 1.  How can I fix it?  I tried the fix it tool and still no luck.

  • 64-bit Vista will not install service pack 2

    I'm running the 64 bit version of vista buisness. I tried to install service pack 2 using the automatic update, but it has not installed. I also tried the manual download. He gets to halfway done installing, then gives me an error 0x800f081f code. He told me to install the system update readiness tool. I tried to install it, but that no longer works. Not even done a selective sartup with everything disabled except for windows services works.

    Hi relik_66,

    I suggest that you check your system for corrupted files.  You use the tool (SFC.exe) System File Checker to check and repair corrupt system files.  To do this, follow these steps:

    1. open an elevated command prompt. To do this, clickStart, click principally made programs, accessories, right-click Guest, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or a confirmation, type the password, or click on allow.

    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.

  • Windows Vista will not install new updates after installing SP2

    Hi, I have a problem with the update of my windows. It started after a fact a factory reset. Here's the history:

    I have a some what old laptop (8 years). It came with a Vista installed with service pack 1 installed at the factory. Over the years, I did a few factory resets (every 2-3 years). I never had problems up to now. What is happening now is that I can not exceed SP2. I tried two different ways, none of them worked. After the reset, I first uninstall a bunch of stupid programs that came with the laptop, and then defragment and then have two ways to proceed. I tried to use windows update, installed more than 100 updates, updates install held until finally I offered service Pack2, installed successfully but then no more updates were offered. Then I tried a different approach - a new reset, uninstall, Defrag, and then downloaded and installed SP2 directly from the Download Center. And again the same thing happens. From the SP2 installation I check updates, download the new update agent and nothing happens after that. He keeps looking for new updates all day (about 50% of the processor by using all the time).

    I read some articles and discussions but could not find anyone with the same problem (most of the users reported some error codes which is something I can't do). I tried the fix tool - it does nothing! Whenever I run it, it is mistakes - sometimes 2, sometimes up to 5. Sometimes, it makes account all fixed, other times that it reports missing or corrupt files do not set. Whatever the results if I restart and when I try to check for updates again it is still the same story.

    Also I tried to install it manually IE9 as soon as SP2 is installed (I understand that this is not supported under SP1) but the installation fails. I expected to be available in updates, but as I don't get updates I tried to install it myself. Not sure if it's related (although I guess it is), but the Defender is not able to verify new definitions either.

    Any suggestions? Maybe the registry is damaged or some of the files using the update agent is are corrupt? There are currently no antivirus program installed that could block whatever it is. I haven't touched Windows Firewall somehow everything must therefore be attributed to the default values.

    You understand is that? I came across exactly the same problem... restoration of an old book to give to a family member, and every time I came to the point of installing SP2 and a more recent windows update agent just after, I couldn't install more updates. It would block 'check updates' forever. Tried twice, same problem. However, I tried some things differently the third time and exceeded the question.

    Let me know if you still need help, and I will respond with what I've done.

  • Windows Vista freezing after installing Service Pack 2

    Yesterday, I downloaded the Windows Vista Service Pack 2.  Now, 10 minutes after turning on my computer, my internet browser and all other open windows will be freezes and I have to manually turn off the computer.   I was forced to repeat this cycle about 10 times already.  I tried the system restore, but it was a mistake not identified, so that the system could not be restored successfully.  I also tried to uninstall the Service Pack, but that no longer works.  Help, please.

  • 8007065B Windows Update will not install language packs

    In the past, I have installed language packs. It has been long since I tried, or needed to. Recently I tried to install the Japanese language pack, only to get the error of 8007065B, which I have found no solution for.

    I tried to manually install the language pack download Windows Update, and I said that it's incompatible. The same goes for any language pack.

    I think I can have interrupted an update a long time there, which gives a language pack partially down, or something similar. I don't remember very well, however. Maybe some file system has been damaged which causes all of the language packs seem incompatible?

    However, I am at my wits end here. I have no real understanding of what may be the problem.

    Hi Imrinfected,
     
    1. which edition of Windows is installed on the computer?
    2. do you have any security software installed on the system?
     
    This problem occurs if a previous Windows Update process did not cause the computer to be in a corrupted state. This prevents the installation of any language pack.
     
    Step 1: Check if the Japanese language pack is listed, if so, then remove
    a. Click Start and then click Control Panel.
    b. in the Control Panel, click clock, language, and region, click on regional and Language Options and then click on Change display language.
    c. on the keyboard and languages tab, click install/uninstall languages under display language. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type the password, or click on continue.
    d. in choosing to install or remove languages, click on remove languages.
    e. under Select the languages that you want to delete, select the language that you want to remove, and then click Next.
    f. click on the language you want to remove and then click on remove.
    g. restart the computer and try to install the package of language manually in safe mode.
    If you are using Vista, so check out http://support.microsoft.com/kb/942903/

  • Windows Vista will not install updates.

    I came across Best Buy, bought the first thing I have seen & to the left. It's just the small things. My main PC is myPC music recording studio (never online) so for my this, that I bought... I don't care.

    a m9402f 7.00 GB 64-bit system quad-core 2.30 Ghz procesor.  On the 626 GB on the 'C' drive, I only used GB 129.  I don't know why I've bothered w/a Seagate external extreem HD 1000GO?  Works great, I've never used one before Vista but works very well.

    Thus, recent updates do not keep install .  What's up with the updates? What is happening with this? Should I just go buy Windows 7?  I spend hours looking for solutions and never ask for help, but this time I am so tired so I'm going to ask.  Below are updates that keep a failure... Notice they're on SP2 * and IE8. My PC alread had installed SP2.  I tried an update for this.  I have switch from IE 7 to 8. I don't see any other reasons.

  • Another problem of Installation of Service Pack 1 of Windows Vista - will not install

    Hey guys, a greeting from Belgium in my first post.

    I recently reinstalled my Windows; This is a Home XP and a Vista Edition Home Premium (updated, so I need to install XP first).
    When I got it setup XP, which goes perfectly to SP3, I switched to Vista. All the small updates installed outside for a few "failures" caused by Vista stop updates itself, because they were not absolutely necessary.

    When SP1 popped up, I decided to download both and see other things, but when you try to install through Windows Update I get the error message "this update cannot continue while some services are still in use" or so, I don't remember the exact message or code.

    When I downloaded the SP1 on the Microsoft site, it worked better and smoother then Windows Update but also to is crushed when the progress bar has been a little more than half. Yet once again, I don't know the exact code but I do not know the message: "update cannot continue because of an internal problem.

    That's what I tried:

    -Retry it 40 times
    -Try in safe mode
    -Turn off all the other third part of the programs, including Win Defender
    -Tried the system update tool
    -Keep hope

    That's what I did afterwards:

    -Save all my settings
    -Rebooted and selected the dualboot XP
    -Formatted the separate partition holding the part of the dualboot Vista
    -Reinstalled on the same partition with the recommended settings, no change

    I would like to have an answer soon, people. I would be incredibly grateful if this could be resolved. Future changes may include error codes given.
