I have a toshiba notebook running with windows xp and i have installed both service pack 1 and 2. i have been having problems with my graphics driver lately, (the screen flicks off and then on in 4 bit and i have to uninstall the display adaptor and restart the computer to fix it), anyway, when i restart i get an error report which i send to windows. when they receive it, they recommend i go to both ati technologies website and windows update website. when i go to windows update it tells me i need the following high priority update:
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1
Download size: 0 KB , 0 minutes (Downloaded; ready to install)
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 Service Pack 1 resolves various issues found after the initial release of .NET Framework 1.1. These include both security- and non-security-related issues. After you install this item, you may have to restart your computer. Once you have installed this item, it cannot be removed. Details...
i thought it was strange that they are prompting me to update service pack 1 when i have supposedly already installed service pack 2, but what do i know. in addition , i have automatic updates turned on and have done various updates throughout the years. anyway, when i try to do the update i receive an error. i can't get it go show me again now (it's only giving me an "unable to successfully install" message, sorry) but when it came up it said i should push cancel to try to debug, then it can't and it says push retry to retry to debug manually.
what's going on? does this also mean i did NOT successfully install service pack 2?
