Driver update for AMD SMBus fails to load

Question: Driver update for AMD SMBus fails to load

Yesterday, I had an important windows update: " Advance micro devices Inc. Driver update for AMD SMBus." The update failed to load 4 different times! So I went to device manager, and in the list it had no such devise. It did list "Universal serial bus controllers". So I do not think it is the same.

Two things strike me as not being right. 1. Why would an AMD driver update be listed as a critical Windows update? 2. On update history, every update that was ever done on this computer has a KB******* I.D. number after it being that it was either successful or failed. The download attempted was listed as Failed, but no KB number after it. I do have the windows update icon in the system tray.

I do know that the wrong people are getting very experienced at attacking computer systems! My concern definitely raises a couple of red flags here.

Could someone please comment as to what may be happening?

Preferred Solution: Driver update for AMD SMBus fails to load

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Win update can't install AMD SMBus driver

Hi: I have zipped up and attached the smbus controller driver you need, below. Download and unzip the file to its folder.  Do not do anything with the files in the folder. Go to the device manager, and click on the smbus controller device needing the driver. Click on the driver tab.  Click on Update Driver. Select the Browse my computer for driver software option, and browse to the driver folder you unzipped. Make sure the Include Subfolders box is checked, and the driver should install. Then restart the PC. See this link for how to get Windows Update to work... https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-update/windows-7-update-problems-read-th...

Here is the list of the problems in order of which I noticed things going awry:

1. My Firefox browser will re-direct my google searches to a new Firefox window pop-up with "google-analytics" in its address bar, but would never finish loading the new popped-up window. Firefox would also re-direct and never finish loading my google searches by opening a new tab with a "directdlr.com/....." in its address bar.

2. Microsoft Office 2010 applications don't open, instead a "DW20.exe" and a "DWWin.exe" replicates itself an infinite number of times in my processes, maxing out my CPU.

3. My anti-virus applications (Spyware Doctor, Microsoft Security Essentials, avast!, malwarebytes) won't update, and therefore won't run or scan. Firefox also won't load various anti-virus sites, such as this message board.

4. Other applications crash directly upon opening them (VLC Media Player)

Solutions that I've tried:

1. Resetting my router. I'd read somewhere online that doing this would solve the problem. It did not.

2. Trying to restore from a restore point. I opened System Restore, but the restore points were all very recent and within the timeframe of infection.

3. Un-installing Microsoft Office 2010 and re-installing. System won't let me un-install.

Not long ago (a week and a half or so) I was playing Payday 2 and my computer froze, I turned off my computer to restart it and could not load my computer past a pre-loading windows black screen where the mouse was not showing. I then tried booting my computer in various ways (safe, with and without networking etc) and they worked, however I believe one of my drivers failing to load was the reason for my "Windows Normal" startup to fail. I eventually decided through, I then looked at using the system restore point function in order to hope for some success. The system restore function when I restored to; a week ago, two weeks ago, did not seem too alleviate my issue much, it did however allow me to load windows but almost immediately after using the machine for 2-5 minutes I would have a frozen screen again. I then eventually decided to just factory reset the machine out of desperation, the factory reset eventually happened successfully and I was able to load windows and login into my new user successfully, as I learnt that I had to reinstall my graphical drivers I then attempted to put in various CD's in in order to install these drivers, eventually when I figured out the order of CD's that I needed to install for my games to load properly, I then resumed my activities on my pc (such as gaming, browsing etc).

Hello,

Thanks for your help in advance.

Problem: I have Windows 10 on a Shuttle Sz77R5. When I restart it, it fails to get back into windows. BSOD while booting windows. I see the logo and rotating circles, then it goes into BSOD with frowny face :-( and after several attempts it still does not work. Tools to fix it to make it bootable do not work. I have to revert to a system image and try another fix and pray that it will get back into windows. I am restoring an image right now and so I cannot post sysinfo utility information. I am pretty experienced but not an expert and I've tried many things and ruled out many things. I think I am close to the source of the problem but need advice (I think it is drivers, see below). At one point I was able to get into safe mode even though I could not get into regular mode, then eventually I can't even get into safe mode.

The working image that I cannot safely restart has all the latest 64-bit drivers from Shuttle's website and any that Windows wanted to install newer than those. Leading up to the problem, I had great difficulty upgrading to 1507 and Anniversary Update. Eventually, I did an in-place upgrade and it successfully installed and even was able to reboot (after only one failure before loading windows each time). Eventually, rebooting messes it up so much that I cannot get back into windows despite trying startup repair, restore points, or even third party macrium fix boot issues. Now I'm back to my pre-a...

Question: smbus no driver

After install of windows 8.1 on a asus cm6870, and the updating to the asus 8.1 chipset, I suddenly have no driver loaded for the Intel® 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SMBus Host Controller - 1E22.  In device manager under events it says driver installed and configured but when driver details it says no driver is installed...  Also Xeon® processor E3-1200 v2/3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Controller - 0150
under driver details it says no driver but in events is say driver installed, driver configured and driver started.  It says this device is working properly.       I believe after install they both had drivers and all normal.   How Can I reset all chipset drivers??  Maybe need to go with aus windows 7 or 8 chipset utility because the 8.1 chipset utility I used was from the non OEM motherboard Asus p8h77m Pro. AsusTek told me it would work.   What can I do. It would be nice if I could just fix the two items as the computer is working prett good and installed with UEFI bios with secure boot.  Using IDE hard drive mode instead of AHCI seems to be working better and hard drive controllers are installed good with 8.1 drivers from asus chipset utility.

Answer:smbus no driver

According to ASUS' site, they don't have an 8.1 chipset driver yet. Perhaps the 8 driver will work, but there are no guarantees.
 
Honestly, if you aren't noticing any issues, you are probably fine. Chipset drivers handle very low-level motherboard features, and unless you know you're missing something, you'll probably never notice (other than poking around Device Manager). Are you having any specific issues?

I have tried everything I know to do.  I am an IT Pro with 30 years experience and this one has me stumped...
With the July cummulative update to Windows 10 15063, the Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth driver has completely failed.  It will not load and reports it is corrupted or unusable.  Here's what I have tried...
1. Remove and reinstall driver - Fail
2. Ensure latest driver from Dell, remove and reinstall - Fail
3. Download latest driver package from Killernetworking.com - Fail
4. Roll back CU (KB4025342) - Success
5. Reinstall CU (KB4025342) - Installs, but kills the bluetooth driver again
6. Contact Dell Support - Fail - Technician said it's a Microsoft problem and I would have to contact them for support. (Ironically: I just bought this laptop two months ago and purchased a 4year premium support contract!).
7. Roll back CU (KB4025342) permanently - Not possible, as it is managed by our Windows Update Server on corporate domain and would effect everyone.  I could do this, but it would be a last resort, and it's unknown what vulnerability I would expose the rest of our W10 clients to.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, what did you do?

Dell:  Can you please investigate and resolve?  All bluetooth functionality is broken so long as this CU is in place.

Thank you!

Answer:Windows Update: AMD SMBus

Wait a minute, you`re asking about an update after you installed it ?

Jesse, you are supposed to highlight an update, then click more information BEFORE you install an update, to see whether you need the update or not.

Now it`s too late, you already installed it.

Just google the update number, it should tell you what it`s for.

But ah ha, there is no number, so now just google the entire term.

Jesse, NEVER install an update without knowing what it is and only after you determine if you even need it.

Hi all.

I've posted in a few places, regarding this problem which has evolved from my faulty OS on another PC to now adding that hardrive to this PC to enable me to retrieve the data on it before formatting and reinstalling XP on it.
So far many of my tech friends and other IT forum mods are stumped on what it can be.

one of them kindly pointed me to this forum. I hope someone can help.

I know you may hate reading, but without someone reading of these two links you wouldn't know what has transpired, and what exactly has been tried and tested. Even screenshots are there, included.

Please read specifically
THIS

and

THIS

One of them 10 pages, with the link to the 9th page because I believe it gives a sufficient introduction from the start of my current problems and all I have tested/done and the other is about a page now.

Two computers in connection here. One of them is this (perfectly functionable) and the other has a faulty OS that gives blue screens and REGISTRY_ERRORS where nothing has worked so I'm going to format its HDD, after I can retrieve some vital data.

I just purchased a new Toshiba Satellite S50D-B-100 computer.

I noticed it's CPU is always stuck in at least 15% and is moving between 15 to 20 percents, even though I'm not running any program at all.

Here is my troubleshooting so far:
- "System" in task manager is causing the high CPU
- I downloaded process explorer to see what exactly in system is causing the problem.
- The cause of the problem is "ETDSMBUS.sys+0x26f8"
- I tried to use google to see if anyone else have experienced the same issue.
- No luck, but I learned that ETDSMBUS.sys is part of "ELAN SMBus"

Hello all,

I'm having an issue with windows update. I have an Nvidia driver for my GTX275 that keeps failing to update. This has stopped all other pending updates. I have since disabled Windows from getting driver updates but I can't figure out how to get Windows to ignore the current Nvidia driver update that's trying to install. This is of course still preventing me from getting updates currently.

I wanted to keep my post short and sweet, if more info is need please feel free to ask. Also I already have a decoded update log ready to go if anyone wants to see it.

Thank you

Hi, I have Vista Ultimate x64 on my laptop and it recently installed a stack of 17 updates. Since then, I have been getting lines across my screen where the display driver failed to load the info correctly. They were sporadic and rare so I thought they were just due to the age of my computer. Then it got so bad that my screen distorted with the corners of the windows I had open somehow faced into the screen. When I tried to boot it, however it failed when it should have displayed the desktop, all I see is my mouse and a black void, occasionally my screen shuts off completely. I sucessfully started in safemode, but then it only last about 5 minutes before shutting off due to overheating.

I'd like to know if this is due to the update or not, and how to fix it if possible. I have my reformatting CD's as last resort, but I want to be fairly sure it would work before I do that.

Answer:Display driver fails after the last update.

Hello Lyikos,
Do you know the cause of the over heating, what component is causing it, i would check all the vents are clear and all the fans are working, you may need to go inside and clear out all the fluff and stuff that has accumulated over time.
It does look like it is heat related, but you need to eliminate the heat issue first so we can go from there.
Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Long time issue...Finally took a moment to post.
I can't install the latest version of the Intel Sata Driver package on my Precision M4700.The problem is the same whether I install directly from download or via DELL COMMAND | UPDATE
The update fails and complains that .NET framework 4.5 is required. I have .NET 4.6.1 installed, I was assuming this supersedes 4.5.
What should I do ? Go back to .NET 4.5, install the driver then reinstall .NET 4.6.1 ?

Answer:Intel SATA driver update fails

Sorry to hear you're having this issue. I think the easiest fix would be to go down to 4.5, install the driver, and then go back to 4.6.1. Here is another customer describing the same issue but on another system model and it fixed the issue. 

Let me know if this works for you.

Best regards,

Ok, Im desperate.
I have tried to install the updated Realtek HD Audio drivers, from different sites, even from Gigabyte (my motherboard) and everytime I install, it fails about halfway through the install. Every time I reboot, it automatically calls the setupAR file and fails again (sound still works thankfully).

So I stopped and disabled setupAR process (I figured it was linked to Realtek) and it wouldnt reinstall and then sound wouldnt work.

Got sound going again using the Win 7 troubleshooter but I still get the Realtek Installshield on startup - that fails everytime. Anyone ablt to tell me how to stop this happening?

Thanks heaps.

Answer:Realtek audio driver update fails on reboot

Ah, I see what's going on here, you have one of those realtek/azalia audio set ups.
That is a tricky one as I don't think the download directly from realtek will work for both.

In your bios there should be the ability to make sure one or the other is in charge.
How is that currently set?

Also open playback devices and disable any of them you are not actively using that appear there.

I have a SteelSeries Sensei mouse and a Razer BlackWidow keyboard. Windows 10 daily attempts to install a "SteelSeries ApS - Keyboard - SteelSeries Sensei [RAW]" update. The update fails within seconds of starting with error 0x80240016. The initial failure message darkens my screen (even when another program is full-screened) and shows a simple message, I don't currently have the verbiage and can't reproduce until Windows attempts automatically.

The update says keyboard in the name, but also says my mouse model. I'm sure it probably pertains to my mouse, but my mouse is working fine and this update fails regardless.

I've rebooted. I've attempted to install while a different mouse was plugged in. I've tried updating mouse and keyboard drivers automatically through the Device Manager ("device driver is already up to date"). I've installed keyboard and mouse drivers from the vendor sites.

Is there anyway to get Windows 10 to forget about this update and stop trying to install it? Any other useful suggestions?

Thanks
Jake.

I use Windows XP SP2.  My wireless LAN adaptor driver was old (ver 3.1.102.23) and did not support WPA2 protocol so I updated it from the Lenovo site using this driver download:   Windows XP, 2000  06 Oct 2009  v7.6.1.260b Immediately afterward  on IBM Access Connections screen, the "Enable wireless radio" menu item no longer would turn the radio on.  (I did manage to turn the radio on using Device Manager properties Advanced tab Radio On/Off setting.)  Also on that screen, I could no longer see any wireless networks in the "Find wireless networks" button. So, before I do more damage, any thoughts?  Some questions occur to me, not sure if any of them is useful? 1.  Since I went directly to Lenovo to download the driver, is the Windows driver Rollback feature likely to work or just to make things worse?  (I never heard of  Rollback before today.) 2.  I could find no good help poking around Lenovo documentation.  Atheros seems even less helpful. 3.  Has anyone successfully installed a driver lately on Thinkpad X series for this Atheros WLAN adaptor for Win XP? 4.  Although I think it's a waste of time, I did try the Windows setup a wireless network wizard for the device.  No luck there yet, either. Have to reboot now, will update if anything new shows up afterward...

Answer:Wireless fails after Lenovo driver update (X40 23718EU; Atheros 11b/g Mini PCI)

A different thread gave me a clue that led to a solution.  Someone mentioned that w/Lenovo drivers it is sometimes necessary to go to the unpacked driver directory (in this case, c:\drivers\win\wllanath) and run the setup program found there. I had run this program before, but automatically as part of the driver download/install process. This time when I ran setup, I chose to ignore and remove all values of former driver installation.  The first time through it today, I had chosen to keep the old installation values. After the reboot Windows went to install the "new" hardware. At one place it went into installing what it called the "ethernet controller".  This substep failed until I gave it a directory in which to look for the software - in my case it was the c:\drivers\win\wllanath\WinXP_2K directory. Now the Windows wireless admin tool works, it finds networks and has connected to our home net.  But the IBM Access Connections tool I've used for 5 years no longer works.  No big loss, although I am curious why.

Hello, thanks for taking the time to look at my issue. I just ran into a problem with my computer. My computer is running windows 7 64bit.

I got a new graphics card in today and put in my computer to crossfire. After I booted my computer back up it loaded fine, albeit slow, but crashed while installing new drivers for the card. Since then I haven't been able to get back on to that SSD(boot drive).

I can't access the advanced boot options to roll back the drivers that were installed as soon as the SSD was booted up.

I've tried numerous suggestions that I've found from other troubleshooting threads on the forums including; looking in my bios for a shortcut, pressing f8 twice per second, holding f8 down, pressing f8 as soon as the bios screen goes away in between the system attempting to load.
I just can't get to the advanced boot menu!

Any suggestions?

Edit: I should say that I AM able to load up windows on my storage hdd which also has windows 7 64bit installed; however, it doesn't even register that my SSD is plugged in under device manager or just computer.

Edit 2: This is crushing my life please help! lol

Answer:SSD Won't load my OS after driver update

Boot into BIOS setup to make sure SSD is detected and set first to boot, after DVD drive.

Then boot into Win7 DVD or System Repair Disk to run Startup Repair several times. It should offer to automate System Restore. If not and it fails to start Win7, boot back into Recovery Options to run System Restore and Disk Check

If SSD is not detected and is under warranty contact it's maker's Tech Support for help to test and if necessary RMA it. Otherwise replace the cables, test the drive using maker's diagnostics followed by Disk Check.

System Update lists Intel Rapid Storage AHCI Driver 10.6.0.1002 as optional update but repeated installation attempts fails without explanation. Status simply says "Not installed". Where did you find the errror message? At the same time I tried to update the AHCI driver with System Update, I also tried to update the "ThinkPad Video Features(NVIDIA Quadro FX 880M and NVIDIA NVS 3100M) for Windows 7 64bit" to version 8.17.12.6824. That installation failed as well without an explanation. Now, the new version is not listed anymore in System Update. Version 8.17.12.6721 had been installed in August.

After updating system to Fall Creators Update of W10 (1709) Dolby Digital Plus App  is reported to be deactivated /deinstalled due to driver incompatibility.
(It appears that driver/ app came with PowerDVD 12 preinstalled.)
 
Manual start of Dolby App shows that driver version installed is higher than expected by app (see screenshot).
Can some resolve driver/app problem, so I can use app again.

I just got my new computer a few days ago and I've been downloading the usual drivers, updates etc. for it. The graphics card is GeForce 6800 GT, so I downloaded the latest driver (61.77) from www.nvidia.com. This worked perfectly until I found out there were further "updates" - and the stupidity of what I did should become apparent now - located here: http://3dchipset.com/drivers/beta/nvidia/nt5/index.php.

Following the flimsy advice that I found on another forum site, I went for the 62.20 download. I can't remember precisely when things went wrong after this, but I think the next two or three restarts were successful.

The current situation is: I switch on the computer - it gets as far as the screen where it says Windows did not start successfully. There is a 30 second timer counting down, and the options are:

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally

The first three options start a series of lines down the screen which read "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\Syste m32\DRIVERS\" and then after "DRIVERS" there will be a *.sys file, e.g. ACPI.sys. After the last line the computer freezes.

"Last Known Good Configuration" makes the screen go black and it stays like that. "Start Windows Normally" freezes the screen, including the timer, and it stays like that. The only options from here are the power on/off or reset bu... Read more

Answer:Can't load Windows after driver update

Well, if this is a result of your driver installation then you need to uninstall it. You can select Safe Modem W/Networking and uninstall the driver that way, after that everything should be okay. If not, since its a new install, I'd reformat and start over.

Cheers!

I have regualrly run a System Update for my computer via Lenovo Companion and I've managed to have all updates successfully completed - all except for one. Lately, I have runs of Updates where I encounter an update for Synaptic UltraNav Driver, run it, but comes up as being unable to download and install - in spite of a successful initial download. Since its encounter a couple of weeks ago, I have been unsuccessful in fully downloading and installing this specific Driver for my computer. Is there any indication of issues for this Drive? And what should I do to resolve it? Also, if the Driver can't be properly updated, what is its purpose for my system? Any form of help concerning this Driver update issue would be appreciated.

I'm simply attempting to run update on my Windows 7 machine. Update will not run, downloading and running the SP1 update fails, downloading and running the Update Readiness Tool fails, trying to launch a troubleshooter fails. I ran sfc and have attached the log along with all the error codes screenshots. I have no idea how to proceed from here other than to drop this machine off at the nearest recycling center.

Answer:update fails, SP1 install fails, troubleshooter fails

Looks to me like you're having problems accessing the COMONENTS registry hive - although I would have thought that would also make a SFC scan fail.

I suspect I know what the problem is - let's see if a different tool can expose it...
I need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.x

I have Power Suite on my computer and it said I had 6 outdated drivers which I updated. Now my Windows won't load. It gets to my desk top background, but can't even load the program icons. Then it starts the same process all over. I'm sure one of the updated drivers is the issue, but I can't get the computer to start in order to try System Restore. What can I do? I'm not very computer savvy, so go slow..

Thanks!

Answer:[SOLVED] windows won't load after driver update- xp

This is the reason it is best to get the driver from the manufacturer website. Most Driver Finder software will recommend incompatible drivers.

I see no beneficial reasons to using Power Suite software.

Boot the PC into Safe Mode. Once logged in run a System Restore

Restart the PC > repeatedly tap F8 during boot > at the Advanced Options choose Safe Mode

When I try and install the update for my video driver and the latest Windows update (Windows Genuine Advantage Validation Tool (KB892130), I get an error message saying: "Windows could not load installer for display. Contact your hardware vendor for assistance".

Also (and I don't know if this is related or not, I am unable to view "properties" from my desktop or to change screensaver/background themes from the control panel).

From googling the error message, I suspect that it has something to do with my video driver but I'm not certain.

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

Answer:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

Can anyone tel me what the error is and how I can fix it/install the new driver.

Answer:Windows XP Printer Driver Update failure to load

You'd be better going to the Brother website rather than rely on the Windows Update Site click here If the printer works OK though why bother?They apparently posted a nVidia Graphics driver as a critical update. Great if you don't have an appropriate nVidia card.

Hi,
 
I had the exact same problem today with my HP after installing the latest Microsoft Updates. Luckily I found an other version of the ahcix64s file on my hard-drive.
 
 
If you can somehow boot into command prompt or use the Windows Recovery Console - rename the current ahcix64s.sys file to something else and copy the other ahcix64s.sys in it's place.
 
Computer boots perfectly now.

Hello, After a few months of operating well, my T500 started failling to enter stand by when I shut the lid (that is, the screen). On the other hand, using the OS (windows XP) menu dialogs  to enter stand by, that works fine.After a few more months, when I'm already in the habit of entering stand by manually through the dialogs, this started failing too, with error messages saying the modem driver is at fault.- I recently updated the BIOS and screen drivers hoping the stand by situation will improve- No updated are available for the modem driver. The  Lenovo installed vesrion is still the latest one.- I haven't found any relevant logs in the Event Viewer Any suggestions?  Thanks, aharel

I have tried everything I know to do.  I am an IT Pro with 30 years experience and this one has me stumped...
With the July cummulative update to Windows 10 15063, the Qualcomm Atheros Bluetooth driver has completely failed.  It will not load and reports it is corrupted or unusable.  Here's what I have tried...
1. Remove and reinstall driver - Fail
2. Ensure latest driver from Dell, remove and reinstall - Fail
3. Download latest driver package from Killernetworking.com - Fail
4. Roll back CU (KB4025342) - Success
5. Reinstall CU (KB4025342) - Installs, but kills the bluetooth driver again
6. Contact Dell Support - Fail - Technician said it's a Microsoft problem and I would have to contact them for support. (Ironically: I just bought this laptop two months ago and purchased a 4year premium support contract!).
7. Roll back CU (KB4025342) permanently - Not possible, as it is managed by our Windows Update Server on corporate domain and would effect everyone.  I could do this, but it would be a last resort, and it's unknown what vulnerability I would expose the rest of our W10 clients to.

Has anyone else encountered this issue?  If so, what did you do to resolve?

Dell:  Can you please investigate and resolve?  All bluetooth functionality is broken so long as this CU is in place.

Thank you!

So, earlier today, everything was fine. My computer was working normally nothing was acting up. While unplugging my laptop from the wall I dropped it, but nothing appeared to be wrong. A little while later I restarted my computer and it worked fine for about a minute and then everything froze in windows explorer, nothing would work, folders wont open task manager never appears start menu wont come up, nothing.
I booted into safe mode and everything works fine through there, so I looked around online and one suggestion was to update my BIOS so I tried to update from Dells Inspiron 1420 A08 to the newer A10 BIOS version, trying that in safe mode failed so I tried to boot normally and quickly do whatever it told me, when I tried it wouldnt restart (and still refuses too, I have to shut it down manually outside of safe mode) it said it couldnt update the BIOS version because it couldnt locate the image, but I downloaded it directly from Dells own website.
So then I tried to do a system restore, and I got the message:

The disk Vista (c:) has errors
Windows detected file system corruption on Vista (c:)
You must check the disk for errors before it can be restored.

So I clicked scan and fix, and nothing happens. (this is back in safe mode by the way) so I opened a command promp and typed sfc /scannow
and it scanned and found some errors but were unable to fix them. Details are located in the CBS.log
So I opened the log and I found the following:

Hi, the first rule if you ever drop a laptop (and it appears OK) is to take the battery out, boot from the mains if all is OK turn off add battery and reboot. Now you may have damaged the MB and or the RAM seating or HDD cable connection as well as the monitor connect cable.. etc ...etc. You can see where this is heading to the shop would be my advice.

About a week ago update keep saying an update failed due to lack of drive space so I fixed the issue. After that the update went through but keep failing and the pc would boot and remove the update. The pc was working normally otherwise. I have been extremely busy with work so ignored the issue hoping to resolve it this weekend however yesterday I came home to the pc endlessly rebooting. Just before the reboot the windows logo appears and then a message pops up saying restoring your previous version of windows. I have read many threads about the issues people are having but didn't find any that offered up a fix for mine. Spoke with MS Support and the best they could do with tell me to reinstall the OS.

No option to get into safe mode that I can find

I can boot from Ubuntu CD and pc is working properly.

Can anyone offer any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Answer:Boot loop after update no safe mode option-repair fails- restore fails

Please boot your computer with Windows Setup Media and from Windows Recovery Environment start the Command Prompt.
Please execute below command and reboot your computer to see issue resolves.

Code:
DISM /Image:C:\ /Cleanup-Image /RevertPendingActions

Please replace partition letter C: with Windows installed partition letter. When computer boots into Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) environment the drive letter assign to Windows partition may not be C: drive letter because Windows 7, 8 , 8.1 and 10 creates a separate system partition when it's installed from scratch. The system partition contains boot files WinRE assigns the system partition the C: drive letter and the Windows installed partition will be assign any other drive letter usually D: drive letter is assign to Windows installed partition. The Bcdedit /enum | find "osdevice" command can be use to find out the drive letter of the Windows installed partition the output of the Bcdedit command is similar to this osdevice partition=D:. The drive letter after partition= is the drive letter of the Windows partition.

Hi guys!
Haven't received the W10 pop up notification yet, although I have reserved (UK) so out of curiosity I was checking win update for any recent updates for my 8.1 machine and after various successful security updates and a restart I was then surprised to see 'Downloading Windows 10' when I checked again. However, for over an hour now an update- which is only 3.9mb fails not allowing me to update anything else.. according to the update info this small update is an 'anti malware' update from March of this year- KB3025417 and is listed as 'important'... the update install list even has 'update to Windows 10 Pro' listed as failed, reflecting my multiple attempts..
I've just restarted the same 'Windows 10 download' via Win update and its saying 'Getting set up files..' and seems to be taking considerably longer than it had in the past attempts.. could this be it finally, regardless of the failed Win defender update??
