Windows 7 Premium / Toshiba RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Toshiba laptop and my dad shut it of when updates were being configured. When it says do not shut off. Now when i turn it on it goes to the configuring screen and stays there. Is there a way to get it back to normal without losing all of my personal data.... which would happen if i had to re-install the operating system cd.... windows 7 premium. I need my comp for school and am failing a class because of no computer. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Adding on teddy advise, if last good configuration doesn't help, do a repair. Choosing a repair instead of a fresh install should keep your personal data intact

    Or alternatively boot into safe mode and see whether you're able to uninstall those updates through ctrl panel>programs>programs & features>view install updates & next remove from the list of updates
