    This message is very annoying, especially when I am trying to shut down my laptop before going to sleep in real life, not my laptop at about 1AM, I have to wait a lot, even though I have a very fast and powerful SSD in my laptop, along with CPU, RAM and GPU. GPU obviously does not matter that much on how long this message takes to disappear. Then, it says "Working on updates, <number>% complete", and I have to wait a little bit.

    "Preparing to configure windows. Do not turn off your computer."

    Hi Justine,

    The error message "Preparing to configure windows. Do not turn off your computer." usually happens when you are performing a process and it was interrupted or encountered a corruption.

    To isolate the concern, we want to ask the following:

    • Did you make any changes prior to the issue?
    • What was the last thing that you were doing before the error happened?
    • Were you able to login on the computer before you receive the error?

    We look forward to your response.

    Computer won't turn on

    Hi,

    To resolve your concern regarding the Critical Service Failed error message on your computer, follow the steps below:

    • Turn off your computer.
    • Turn on your computer. As soon as you see the Windows logo with the spinning dots, press and hold down the power button until your computer turns off. Do this process
      twice.
    • Turn on your computer for the third time, and then let it load.
    • It should give you the message: Preparing Automatic Repair.
    • On the next screen that would appear, click on Advanced Options.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Go to Advanced Options.
    • Click on Startup Repair.
    • Wait for the repair to finish.

    Let us know how it goes.
