  1. windows update broke my laptop


    Yea so title says it all. Updated windows , when I rebooted the laptop it says my pin is not valid anymore.When I click set up , a grey box pops up then immediately disappears, leaving me unable to set up pin, therefore locked out of my own laptop.I then uninstalling the update but it says that it cannot be done.I then tried system restore which doesnt show me any restore pointsI then tried troubleshooting start up this also failed.I then tried resetting the pc and downloading from cloud but this is also not working.I dont have a recovery disk , so I'm pretty much locked out of my own laptop

    Follow the steps to install in Compatibility mode:



    • Right click the Game setup file and select Properties then tap or click the Compatibility tab.

    Obviously we both misread it. MS has an elephant sitting on a paper box screwing the public if a hard drive fails or in this case if their software through their actions (updating without a request) fails and in this case their repair function killed my hard drive (SSD now in there). Wonderful, just plain wonderful!

    Microsoft withdraws bad Windows 7 update that broke future Windows 7 updates

    "Unfortunately, this apparently simple change has had severe consequences for some users of Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1, with users reporting that Windows Update, drivers from both Nvidia and AMD, and some third-party software including Virtual Box are all unable to install correctly. The error code 0x8004FF91 seems to be a common finding."
