    Prolonged update sequence


    My wife has W10 on her Sony Laptop. She gets updates followed by hours of just the 'dotted ring " flashing and its
    bumming her out. I think her laptop will start up eventually but there must be a way of avoiding this onerous situation . *Redface

  2. How do I change my ring tone on mozart windows 7 phone to my favorite tune

    You won't be able to change your ringtone to a tune of your choice until the "Mango" update which is due in the Fall (Northern hemisphere Fall).

    To prolong the ringing time until the Voicemail kicks in is, at least in my case with Telstra, a function of your carrier and can be controlled by dialling an appropriate sequence. Search your carrier's web site for their details.

  3. startup after prolonged update session.

    Let's further isolate the issue. Let's check if there are corrupted/missing system files on your computer. We recommend that you boot your computer into safe mode so that we can continue with the troubleshooting. To do so, kindly follow these steps:

    • Start your system.
    • After your computer shows its original equipment manufacturer's logo, perform a hard shut down by pressing and holding the power button until your computer shuts down.
    • Repeat steps 1 and 2.
    • Start your system again. This time, Windows will boot into the Windows 10 Repair Environment.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Click on Advanced Options.
    • Select Startup Settings, then click restart.
    • When your computer restarts, press the corresponding key for safe mode to boot your computer into safe mode.

    Once you're able to boot into safe mode, kindly run the System File Checker tool and the
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool. The System File Checker tool
    and the Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool check if there are corrupted system files on your computer. If the
    System File Checker tool detects incorrect, corrupted, or damaged system files, it replaces them with the correct file versions. If it cannot repair the issue, the
    Deployment Image Servicing and Management tool will try to fix as many errors as possible. To do so, kindly follow the steps in this article:

    System file check (SFC) Scan and Repair System Files & DISM to fix things SFC cannot
    . Remember to thoroughly read the instructions.

    Kindly get back to us once you've tried the steps that we have provided.

    Prolonged update sequence

    Windows Update Minitool Download Windows Update MiniTool - MajorGeeks

    Turn the option to 'notify only' and do the updates with the tool when your wife isn't using the laptop , works really well for me on my slow older PC that the kids use.
