Guys...I screwed up. I need help bad. So what I did was let windows install some updates. This was fine but then it said "failure configuring windows updates. reverting changes. do not turn off your computer." So I let it but it has been going for ages and it just wont move. Its stuck in a loop !!!! I try and try again but its just stuck on a loop. Also all the tutorials involve doing something while logged on, but I can't log on as it is STUCK IN A LOOP !!!!. 

 

As you can see I need help. Please help me out here lol. The PC is a Toshiba Satellite P850.

If it is still stuck in the loop force a hard shutdown.  Cross your finger and restart the computer.

 

Let us know the results.

You have to be able to boot into Windows 8.1 in order to setup the System Configuration to boot into Safe Mode.  If this loop has damaged the file system they may not be able to boot into Windows.

@ Electricfat,

Please follow dc3 as it needs a re-boot to continue >> " If it is still stuck in the loop force a hard shutdown.  Cross your finger and restart the computer."

 

Note : " .......... do not turn off your computer.", is a generic message that something is wrong, and your computer is unable to continue without help from you.

This has been caused several times with recent updates.

 

Once rebooted as directed (Note :this may take several attempts), please tell us the situation..

Start Windows 8 in safe mode



Acer Computer with LG Monitor and Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7.1

Windows 64bit  8.1 - Always fully updated

Firefox / Google Chrome / Internet Explorer Browsers

Usually a home helper here or with friends and nimble fingered ladies who would rather sew or dust, but not clean the bugs out of a computer ...

I solved it but I created another issue. I could not even do anything to the pc so I had to install windows 8.1 via disk. However the issue is that I used a Microsoft issue meaning it doesn't have all the Toshiba drivers which is a pain as now none of my hotkeys and fn buttons work.

Go to the Toshiba website, click on Drivers & Updates.  You will find your drivers there.
