Dear Bleeping Computer
I was running windows 8.1 back in January and it crashed during an update. After that, the system wouldn't start and just kept on going round in circles trying to fix itself.
Under diagnostic tests at a local PC repair shop, a hard drive failure seemed to be the problem. Since it was under warranty, it went back to PC World who sent it back to Lenovo. I got it back in March but all they did was a system reset, putting it back on windows 8.
Everything seemed to be working fine apart from one fact. It won't update. I just get the 'failure configuring updates, reverting changes' message. My metro tiles stopped working yesterday as well. I presume this is also an update issue. Under investigation I came across a message saying the place where windows stores updates has been moved. How do I repair this, since the windows update troubleshooter doesn't help. I am fairly conversant in DOS, but it's been a while.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I'm using a Lenovo Ideacentre B340 running windows 8 with the following spec:
Intel Pentium CPU G645 @ 2.90GHz
Lenovo Mahobay motherboard
440GB Hard Drive
I have enabled safemode startup on the F8 key and everything of importance is backed up.
