Vista update wont run- have you tried your ISP? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sister in law's notebook on Vista HP stopped any sort of updating at end of Oct last year.

    After trying to find an answer, a couple of weeks ago I upgraded it to Win 7 HP thinking it might solve the issue. It didn't and could not update SP1 for win 7.

    Next step was to reimage and start again, but as an after thought I took my Dodo/Optus modem down and tried it in place of her 3 modem.

    Started automatically downloading 200+ Mb of updates straight away.

    Now all up to date, SP 1 installed and the 3 modem is again working fine on automatic update.

    Go figure!
