I pressed update and shut down on my tablet a few days ago and when I looked at it the next morning my tablet was frozen on ‘configuring windows updates 88% complete don’t turn off computer’ so i turned it on and off a few times since over the past couple of days and it starts configuring again and freezes every time at the same 88% even the loading circles freeze . What can I do!!
Thanks for engaging in HP support Forums! This is a wonderful location to converse with the community, get assistance and find tips! I came across your post and wanted to assist you. I understand you are having issues with the computer stuck while performing Windows update. Don't worry I'll be really glad to help you with this.
To provide you with an accurate solution, I'll need a few more details:
Have you recently made any changes on the PC before the issue started?
Have you tried to run any test on the computer from F2?
Many startup errors and other problems can be resolved by decreasing the amount of power stored in hardware components. Decreasing stored power is sometimes referred to as a "Hard Reset". Use the following steps to perform a hard reset on a computer:
If Windows is open, click Start and then Shutdown.
If Windows is not open and the computer has power, press and hold the power button on the computer until the computer shuts off.
With the power off, disconnect the power cord from the back of the computer.
With the power off and the power cord disconnected, press the power button on the computer for 5 seconds. The power light indicator on or near the power button might turn on briefly but then go out.
Reconnect the power cord and turn on the power.
Run an extensive system test as well as an extensive test on the Hard drive from F2 (Please capture the failure ID for further assistance).
If the test passes, I would suggest you go ahead and perform a system recovery using the partition available on your PC. Doing this will wipe off everything and set the computer back to the original factory conditions. So, please remember to back up your data before initiating system recovery. If for some reason the recovery fails. The only other way to install Windows would be to order the recovery media for your laptop and using the recovery media you can install Windows. You can check if the recovery media is available online on www.hp.com/drivers by entering the exact model no. of your laptop. To find the exact model no. click here: http://hp.care/2bygf7l
