I have a Lenovo U31-70 laptop and about a month ago I took out its 1tb HD and fitted a 480gb SSD, this went fine.
however I used the recovery system to create a fresh install of Win 8.1 but since that time I have a problem, it will not get any updates at all.
I have been fighting with this close to a month now and still, ZERO updates have downloaded, it just says "searching for updates installed on this computer" and then nothing happens, I even left it on for 12 (twelve!!!) hours straight one day and still, nothing found and I had to kill the task.
Each time I use the PC, my cpu usage spikes and the fan speeds up as 'windows update' is eating cpu but seemingly doing nothing.
I'm now at my wits end and scared to use the laptop online because its like missing 2 years of security updates.
is there ANY way to fix this issue? or have Microsoft turned off updates for 8.1?
