  1. How to fix pc after shutting it off mid windows update?


    I made the mistake of shutting down my pc mid windows update it’s already windows 11, and turned it on the next day. it showed that the update was at 7%, but I couldn’t do anything I could move my cursor but I couldn’t boot up safe mode or anything, it then blue screen of death and then turned back on showing “Updates are Underway”. That then turned into “Something didn’t go as planned.” And it blue screened not too long after that. Do I just have to wait this out until it finishes? It keeps blue screening so I don’t know what to do.

    :)

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    I understand your concern regarding the issue that you are facing.

    I suggest you to follow the steps below and check, if it helps

    Method 1: Hardware Troubleshoot

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with power. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your Power.

    Refer these steps:

    • Press Windows key +X, select Control panel
    • Change the view by option on the top right to Large icons
    • Click on troubleshooting and click on the view all option on the left panel
    • Run the Power troubleshooter

    Method 2: I suggest you to update drivers and check if that helps. If that issue persist please uninstall and reinstall latest drivers available in manufacturer website. Both Display
    driver and Audio drivers.

    • Press “Windows + X” and select Device manger.
    • Select Display Adapter and expand the driver icon.
    • Right click on the driver icon and click on Update.
    • Follow the onscreen instructions to update the driver.

    Hope this helps. If the issue remains unresolved, please get back to us and we would be happy to help

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Check the date on the one you thought it was. Nov 4 2015 <-That's not June

    The rollup does contain the fix.

    June 2016 update rollup for Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1

    June 21 2016

    Windows Update Client for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2: June 2016

    This update contains some improvements to Windows Update Client in Windows 7 Service Pack 1 (SP1) and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. This includes the following:
    • An optimization that addresses long scan time for updates that's reported on some computers.
    • Fix for a Windows Update error 0x8007000E on some computers while they are updating.
    • Some reliability improvements.

    FIXED!! Windows 7 sp1 never ends searching for updates

    Yeah, I've been noting it for months on the refusenik thread. They do NOT want anything older than 10 running.

    I still have an HTPC on W7, and every other month I have to fix the update agent in order to get all updates. SMH....

    You provided a good step by step fix. I've bookmarked it for future reference.
