    failure configuring windows updates. reverting changes!


    Hi,

    I purchased a new ASUS LAPTOP which came with windows 8 installed.
    When i tried to restart after installing Gtalk i got this message.

    "failure configuring windows updates. reverting changes. do not turn off your computer "

    I got this on last friday i.e the 6th of june, ever since i am not able to do anything with my laptop. I dont have windows 8 dvd as well.

    How do i re boot it?
    Model number : Asus 15634 Laptop Intel Core i3

    I also tried pressing the power button for 15 secs , still no luck
    Tried f8 f9 and windows + r and windows+ X keys no luck

    reverting


    Hi Diva,
    had the same prob after restore factory settings.

    I let it run for about 2 hours it finally reverted, after about 7/8 tries

    After you are up and running go

    Controlpanel>windowsUpdate>troubleshoot, to clear any errors

    asus restore


    Like i said let it run it will take time and at least 6 tries to get there by itself

    That option relates to >>> W7 <<<

    you get different choices in W8/W8.1

    i know did it 2 days ago on my X55A.

    Hawkman I am having the same issue with a HP Pavillion Touchsmart 23 all in one. I didn't wait until it finished and reloaded a image file.
    If I wait until it reverts back, then clear the errors in troubleshoot will it then retry to install the 99 updates? and will it perhaps go thru then. I am trying to start fresh and perhaps clean up some problems in the system.
    Thank You.

    failure configuring windows updates reverting changes


    I waited about two hours and it did complete. I then downloaded the updates again after using troubleshooting in the windows update. It did fix one error. after installing the updates again it did complete and now have everything back to 8.1 as I want it.

    Hp laptop Failure configuring Windows updates Reverting


    the update was downloading like normal. Then at around 30% the computer performed a reboot. And now I am stuck with a screen that says:

    "Configuring windows update has failed. Restoring system changes. Don not turn off your computer".

    I don't have any idea what to do, control alt delete didn't work the f8 didn't work and even shutting it off and turning it back on goes straight to the failure screen.
