  1. Computer in Continual Restart after update


    One of my computers received the May 2004 update over the weekend. When I woke it up, there was a message that the computer needed to restart. Should I restart it now or later. Foolishly, i said OK to the restart now. Now the blue screen saying "Restarting" has been on for 15-20 minutes. The hard drive light is illuminating once every 5 seconds or so. The screen does not say almost there nor does it give a percentage of completion. It just says Restarting.

    Is there anything I can do? Will shutting it off and restarting be catastrophic?

    Thanks for any thoughts.

    Well, I took a chance and hard powered it off. Waited a couple of minutes and powered it back on. I am now seeing this message: Working on updates. 100% complete Don't turn off your computer.Took a few minutes but it then said restarting and now it appears to be restarting again. Went to a screen that said 67% update complete, then 100% complete. Now it's finally on my log in screen. Whew.

    :)

  2. After update computer boots to Bios screen

    Hi Denise,

    Automatic restart after an update may be caused by a hardware failure. As our initial troubleshooting step, we suggest that you follow these steps:

    • Press Windows and type "view advanced system settings".
    • Select View advanced system settings.
    • Under the Startup and Recovery section, click
      Settings.
    • Under System Failure, remove the check mark next to
      Automatically restart
      and click OK.
    • Restart your computer.

    Get back to us with the status of the issue.

    Hi dalchina. Good news, I followed your suggestion and reinstalled the update and now it appears as "installed correctly" *Biggrin Maybe it was not necessary to run the Windows Update Troubleshooter or maybe if necessary. But using it I do not think it could have worsened something. The installation was very fast, unlike the first time it showed step 1 and step 2 completed.

    Thanks for the suggestions and for the time to respond Computer in Continual Restart after update :) Best regards.


    And thanks for the tip of that program, I'll have it on my list.

  4. Computer in Continual Restart after update

    After Windows 10 update computer will not restart

    Hi Tony,

    I will be glad to help you with the issue you have with the computer.

    What is the error message you get when you start the computer?

    I suggest you to start the computer in Safe Mode and check if it works:

    If you can't open Settings, get to startup options from the sign-in screen:

    • On the sign-in screen, hold the Shift
      key down while you select Power
      > Restart
      (in the lower-right corner of the screen).
    • After your PC restarts to the Choose an option
      screen, select Troubleshoot
      > Advanced options
      > Startup Settings
      > Restart.
    • After your PC restarts, select a startup setting from the list of options by pressing the corresponding number on your keyboard.

    Please reply with the results, we are happy to help you further.

    Thank you.
