It says "downloading windows 10"and i get the icon scrolling but then it just takes me to the windows update screen that shows me my current updates are up to date. I've tried this over a dozen times now, even going as far as disabling my windows firewall and ms essentials....still nothing. I've installed the updates that were optional as well as the required ones but it still will not launch. Downloaded the windows 10 update.exe from microsoft directly and it does the same thing as the one in the taskbar. What else should I do? Maybe it's a sign I just keep 7 (ultimate btw) for a much longer time.
I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 Home. Now I get random BSODs related to nvraid, error 11. I Googled error 11 and it suggest it may be caused from an outdated chipset driver. My PC is from 2007 so there are no current chipset drivers available. I am using the last available nForce 750i SLI chipset driver for my ASUS P5N-D motherboard from Nvidia.
When I run Windows Update on Windows 10 (ver 1511), I get the following error:
Hewlett-Packard - Imaging - Null Print - HP Deskjet 3520 series - Error 0x800f020b
I looked up the 0x800f020b error code and it says this occurs when an attempt is made to update drivers for a device that isn't connected. In my particular case, this device is connected via the wireless network and appears in my list of available Printers.
When I try to download and install my two updates ( Cumulative Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081455) and Update for Windows 10 for x64-based Systems (KB3081452) ) I get the error code 0x80070246 for both of them.
I tried simple things like restarting, using the troubleshooting to solve any issues, I downloaded the file named WindowsUpdateDiagnostic and run that too with no success.
I figured that it might be a problem with GlobalInstallOrder.xml like the one described here [URL] .... but I couldn't apply the solution, maybe because of the different OS.
I also downloaded the standalone updates and tried to install them but I get an error every time.So now I'm stuck.solutions that don't include refreshing or formatting as there are a ton of apps that I will have to manually install.
I have an Acer 5942G, 8 Gigs of ram, a 256 Gb Crucial SSD, i7 720 QM and a 5650m.Windows are x64.
Ever since Windows Update KB3093266, my laptops Nvidia GTX 970m card has been disabled and shows a code 43 error, which says "Windows has stopped this device because it has reported problems. (Code 43)".
Uninstalling the update doesn't work, and I've installed and removed the driver multiple times. The Windows update gets downloaded again whenever I restart my computer, if I removed it. I've tried the update hider, but that didn't work.
I have tried to download and install Windows 10 quite a few times. It freezes at the point where it has completed 75% of the installation and I think it is just about to 'Restart' once again to go into the final 'Settings' phase. The only way to get out of this that I've found is to power the machine off and then back on again, the system tries to recover the installation and then the previous version of Windows is restored. The unknown error C1900101-40017 is reported in Windows Update on each occasion.
So far, things have been ok with my Windows 10 update. Today I tried to look for updates, as I think this is the regular Patch Tuesday. However, it takes a long time, then gives me the error in the title. Using the update fixer doesn't work, I just get the "Service Registry is Missing or Corrupt". What would be causing that?
I'm also getting a problem with task host not wanting to allow shutdown, what's the deal there?
I have upgraded to windows 10 for a few weeks now and over the last couple of days it has stopped installing any windows updates, the error code that pops up is (error 0x80070643)
It's also stopping me from installing some other programs but not all.
I have tried restarting the computer, Nothing I've tried restarting wuauserv service, Nothing I've tried the troubleshooter for windows update, it says problems were found and they were fixed. I have also cleared the cache for update downloads from the following folder: C:WindowsSoftwareDistributionDownload
In the Windows update page it seems to take forever to install the updates and then throws out the following:
There were problems installing some updates, but we'll try again later. If you keep seeing this and want to search the web or contact support for information:
Security Update for Microsoft ASP.NET MVC 4.0 (KB2993928) - Error 0x80070643 Security Update for Microsoft Silverlight (KB3080333) - Error 0x80070643 Security Update for SQL Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 2 (KB3045313) - Error 0x80070643 Update for Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime (KB3001652) - Error 0x80070643
Note: this is after clearing the cache in the above folder location.
I cannot install anything from Windows Store. It will down load normally & then fail with error 80073DOA. Updates to Apps also fail to install with the same error. I have run wreset ( several times) but still no joy. Date & Time Zone are correct.
Windows Firewall must be enabled to allow the Store to Update & Install!
Found this by accident. I was running the Firewall that came with Norton Security. Why this is a requirement I don't know. Disabling the Norton Firewall was easy but there was no option to turn the windows Firewall back on as Norton had taken over so I went into Services & did it from there. All working fine now ))
I have a retail copy of windows 8 on my desktop which I recently upgraded to win 10, I was wondering if I can use that windows 8 key again to install windows on a laptop since it is no longer on my desktop?
Have installed Windows 10 on two desktops, so decided to download and install on laptop. Laptop is currently on and shows 67% on Configure settings and 91% overall. There is no light flickering except a slight flicker about every 20-30 seconds showing action on hard drive and it has been at 91% for over an hour.
I'm currently running a PC on Windows 8.1. Of the course of it's use, I've had numerous problems with installing drivers and other software and have tried multiple times to clean install the OS from the disk. I've gotten to the point where I can't install most software I download for some reason and I can't get Windows update. Any type of sfc, dism /RestoreHealth, or other commands of the like always return unfixable errors. Would my problems be fixed by choosing the "clean install" option on the upgrade or would lingering system files cause me trouble down the road? If the latter is true, is there a way to use my upgrade on a new SSD I plan to buy?
Its been more than a month that i have updated my Pc to windows 10, and i actually dont like it at all so i need to find a way to go back to windows 8.1 without losing data like Steam games and pictures and more.
I have tried to install the latest version of a program that I had installed in Windows 7 but the installation process said that a previous version was still present. The install app offered to uninstall the old version but for some reason did not install the new version. When I tried to install once more I got the same message. I have attached a snip-it picture of the message.
I had music files on my laptop which was running windows 7, but when I upgraded to windows 10 I can no longer find them and the available space is not now large enough to put the music back from an external drive, which leads me to think that these files are still somewhere on my hard drive.
