Well I was doing some Windows Updates... and then my computer froze .. so I was forced to hold the power button.. when I tried turning it back on and windows won't load. I get the error: "Fatal error c0190003 applying update operation 2806 of 118356 (recove...)
I can't do a system restore.. it doesn't do anything, I have to do 'Start Windows Normally'.. and Windows just won't load in my laptop.

It is a Dell Inspiron with windows Windows 7

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
Mitch

Thanks for that buddy...

- Unfortunately I cannot load windows. That websites provides instructions for a computer that can load. Thanks for the effort, I really do appreciate it. But I think my problem is of such severity, I need the assistance of an expert.

edit: reinstate my problem- I cannot load windows after doing some Windows Updates. Can't do anything to the laptop, once I turn it on, it will freeze when attempting to load Windows.

Thanks,
Mitch

Hello, thanks for such a quick response!

Boot to safe mode>> select safe mode with command prompt>> enter commands.

I am trying to do that but having a little trouble. When I turn on my laptop I have a few quick seconds to chose an option before Windows loads. It says at the bottom: "F2 for setup" "F12 for boot options"
Once I press F12 for boot options I have the following options to chose from:
[Internal HDD]
[CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive]
[Onboard NIC]

[BIOS Setup]
[Diagnostics]
I don't even see where it will allow me to boot to safe mode. :\

Thanks,
Mitch

Which I am not. Hopefully someone expert in un-bootable computers will offer some assistance sometime soon.

Sorry I couldn't be of any assistance.

Good luck

Thanks for that! I really should have known that !
After I pressed F8, I was brought to the Advanced Boot Options. I would just like to ask: Do you think it would be wise to chose "Last known good config (advanced)" since my problem caused everything to go haywire, and we don't have a defined solution, only a possible one.

If you think I should continue to follow the instructions of:

Possible fix: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_update/trouble-installing-service-pack-windows-7-64-error/0e018d08-ea77-e011-8dfc-68b599b31bf5

, I certainly will do so.


edit: No worries, you helped me learn stuff with just your few posts. So now I am able to attempt to boot Last Known Good Config, or alternatively I can boot into safe mode with command prompt to follow the instructions of the possible solution thug posted.. I am really to tempted to attempt to load last known good config, but I really don't know what I should do. Bleh, I won't do anything until I hear something from yall. if I do attempt to load the last known, i'll be sure to post.


Thanks,
Mitch

After further investigation of my problem. It would appear that this problem is due to an error while installing SP1. I am now very confused, as I had SP3 installed. And I was just doing Windows Updates, I don't know why SP1 would install? Maybe someone can help clear that up? I'll await further instructions.

Thanks,
Mitch

There is no SP3 for Windows 7. SP1 was released in Feb 2011.

Oh joy! I have currently been working on two computers here in BC. I apologize for any confusion!! I take that SP3 comment back!, as I don't know what exactly was installed on the laptop. Would like to note I have had the laptop for about a year (maybe longer), and have used Windows Updates before with no problem. Unfortunately I don't know what exactly was on this laptop.

SP1 was released in Feb 2011.

Ah, well.. This could in fact be the problem then. Before I restarted my computer, I noticed there were a few previous Windows Updates that had Failed. So I don't really know...


Thanks and sorry for any confusion,
Mitch

You can certainly try last known good. I don't think it will do any more harm, but of course the choice is ultimately yours.

No success. I get another error :( Seems the numbers of the update operation have changed, but same error :\
Fatal error C0000034 applying update operation 288 of 118356 (_00000...)

I guess i'll try the link you provided to see if that resolves anything. I'll post back and let you know.

Thanks,
Mitch

>>>Fatal error C0000034<<<

Well that sucks, although I suspected last known good wouldn't work. That's the same error I got installing SP1. :blink: (See my BC thread HERE start @post #30) I ended up restoring to factory condition & installing SP1 manually.
