Preferred Solution: after XP to windows 7 upgrade folder stuck re

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: after XP to windows 7 upgrade folder stuck re

What folder? Upgrade directly from WinXP to Windows 7 is not advised by Microsoft. You should have performed a clean install instead.

my $windows.-BT folder is still 140Mb for last one month. Folder has been used on 1st August previously and its not progressing.

Is there any tool to start the download again.

Answer:$windows.-BT folder- stuck at 140Mb

Hello and welcome to the forum!

You can use the Disk Cleanup utility to clean up the system files. There is an option to remove files from a Windows Upgrade; this should also remove that folder.

You can start the download of the Windows 10 files using the Media Creation Tool.
Here is a tutorial:
Windows 10 ISO Download - Windows 10 Forums

After you have finished that process, it is important that when you start the Windows Upgrade you do that from inside your running Windows version. Just being in Windows and then executing the according setup file. The Media Creation Tool will also allow you to create a bootable USB stick or so and you could then theoretically boot from it to start the upgrade, meaning from outside of your current Windows installation. This is what you should not do.

I had Windows 10 briefly about a year ago, and I downgraded to Win 8.1 soon after.

Frankly, other than the annoying million hour updates, I hated hated hated how folder and file names suddenly after one of the major updates were all stuck to the left, and there was no workaround solution to make the folder and file names as They've Always been from XP to Win 8.1 - that would be Centralized.

Does this problem still exist in Windows 10, and if yes, is there a solution for it?

Thanks

I have got the notification to upgrade to windows 10 via the GWX app. It downloaded via Windows Update and started preparing to download. However while preparing to download it got stuck at 23%. I tried cancelling and restarting the download but same results. I restarted my PC and then started it again. It redownloaded the entire package and again started preparing to download. Still the same issue. I even tried disabling my antivirus(AVAST) but to no avail.

I had a similar experience to that which you had. I then downloaded a Win 10 ISO, burned it to a DVD-R, and installed Win 10 with no problems.

I've tried a few fixes I found online but nothing seems to be working. When I first tried I needed more disc space so I formatted my C Drive and reinstalled Windows 7 from a disc. I've left the Windows 10 Upgrader running all night (roughly 13 hours) and it's still stuck at 99%.

This is the 4th time I've tried and I don't really know what else I can do. Anyone managed to solve this?

Answer:Windows 10 Upgrade stuck at 99%

Hi, took me two goes. Please check the News section for comments on this update, which also offers direct links to download the update- so you can retry without downloading.
Try after a clean boot and with minimal peripherals attached.

I assume you are referring to this one: KB3194798 build 14393.321

You may get more info thus:
Windows Update logs are now generated using ETW (Event Tracing for Windows).
Please run the Get-WindowsUpdateLog PowerShell command to convert ETW traces into a readable WindowsUpdate.log.

Hi
I am upgrading from Win 7 64 bit to Window 10 via the upgrade notification in system tray.
It has been sitting on 92 % (configuring settings 69%) for about an hour.
Is this normal? Or is it stuck?
And if its stuck, what do I do. Can I reverse this upgrade back to Windows 7?
Thank you,

The most important thing right now is patience. Do not restart your system yet or do anything else until you see a failure notification.

I have a windows 10 64 bit system.

A recent update stoped at 32%, waited for hours even though the dotted circle seemed frozen.
(5/15)

So I did a restore and then disabled the windows 10 update service.

After a power failure today, it started the update again, stopping at 32%.

I am willing to go without Window 10 upgrades if I can't fix it.
So how can I permanently shut it off.

You won't find this laptop in either of my specs and falls in the "sure I'll take a look at it" family category.

My Nephew's Gateway NE56R48u was being upgraded to 10 when the upgrade hung in one of those moments that the machine needed to restart itself. The screen stayed black and the blue led busy light continues to blink, this has been like this for several weeks and the NE56 has been shutdown and restarted a few times to run for hours by my nephew.

Nothing I've tried works;
Over 15? different key combinations, press and hold or tap, even using the "SOS" code on f2,pulled the cmos battery,ran a boot dsk and that didn't take, but I don't believe it was for a gateway with 8 on it, nothing,
I just can't break that update to get 8 to startup. I need to get at least to safe mode with cmd prompt, would something like hiren's or rufus work?

I'll appreciate any and all suggestions even the ones that I may be wasting my time.

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade from win 8 Stuck

Hi, it's very unlikely you can recover your PC as is from that. Your inability to use a boot disk seems to mean you can't do anything with it.

If you could boot from a valid bootable medium and had been using disk imaging as we so often recommend- then you could recover fairly easily and reliably- no technical help required.

Safe Mode
Even with a fully operational Windows installation you can't start safe mode unless you can at least get to a log-on screen. You can''t start it from a boot disk.

Boot disk
A very handy boot disk is Kyhi's, available from the top of the Software and Apps section- boots to Win 10 with a selection of utilities, including a partition manager and of course file explorer as usual.

However your comment that it does not respond to any Fn keys etc suggests you may not be able to set boot priority or select a boot device. If so, that suggests a hardware problem.

Check the disk
If you can manage to boot from a bootable disk, boot using Kyhi's disk (if you can) and run HD Tune to check the disk's SMART params.

If you can't, remove the disk, insert it into a USB caddy, and recover any data you need.

I then activated my windows 7 and went to the microsoft website and downloaded my free upgrade. However it stuck at 99% or 5 hours, so I shut it down and it updated 231 updates. I have switched it back n and it tried to configure these updates, but there is a message now saying 'failure configuring windows updates, reverting changes' I them had to do a system restore as my computer just had a black screen after putting in my password.

Hi,

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 at the first opportunity on July 30 after registering with Microsoft. The upgrade appeared to progress smoothly and I was able to boot the computer to see the new desktop screen. However, very soon after this first boot, the computer asked me to restart to finish the upgrade. This I did and my computer has since been rendered unusable. Every time I boot, the computer gets stuck on the welcome screen. It displays the generic circular user icon, with my name written underneath and the word "Welcome" written underneath this. The animated "computer working" icon (the little dots which rotate again and again) is displayed next to this. However, it never goes away. I left the computer for 12 hours and nothing changed (the little dots kept on rotating all the while). The computer otherwise appears fine (ie. the multimedia buttons at the top of the keyboard work fine) but the OS cannot get past this screen, no matter what I do.

I have unplugged all USB devices. I have tried booting with the power cable in and out. I have gone into the Advanced tab of the setup menu and disabled (and re-enabled) things like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi top test if this makes a difference. Nothing does. As things currently stand, I am completely unable to use my computer and all my files are stranded. Several of them are desperately needed.

This has caused huge anguish as my computer has been rendered unusable at a particularly unfortunate mom... Read more

Hi!I have an Acer AXC--115-ER43 that came with Windows 8.1, AMD A4-6210 APU and 4GB DDR3 (which I upgraded to 8GB). I updated the BIOS to latest, according to product's page.Few days ago I tried to upgrade to Windows 10 and after the Windows 10 assistant (or whatever is called...) said that CPU/RAM/DISK are fine, the upgrade started and finished apparently OK. However, once the system reboot, it is stuck in the logo screen. I do have hard drive acctivity, and it looks like the system is loading. I tried to troubleshoot the issue and I can boot using the troubleshooter  that gives you startup options, etc. and I can use the command prompt mode. However, I cannot use the safe mode, because even if I set that option, the machine is stuck in that logo windows. I even removed the wireless card, and my keyboard/mouse are wired.Searching on Acer website, I found that apparently this machine model is supported to Windows 10, but not for Windows 10 Anniversary Release, and I guess I'm being upgraded to this Anniversary release. I couldn't find WHY this machine does not support Windows 10 Anniversary Release.Anyone could give me some ideas on how to fix this? Thank you!

Hello all, I am new to this forum.

I have bought two new sticks of Crucial 4GB DDR3 1600 UDIMM for my Gigabyte GA-H55M-D2H motherboard. After the switch the windows gets stuck on window loading screen (before the logo even starts to assemble) and when booting in safe mode it gets stuck on classpnp.sys.

I have tried using the sticks in another rig and they work fine, I have also tried different sticks (kingston hyperx) in the rig and the pc had the same windows loading problem.

The bios version of the motherboard is F3. And the sticks should be supported. I was searching for XMP search in mobo but didn't find it. The RAM sticks are 1600 but mobo recognizes them as 1333 mhz.

I can't even load windows setup from a DVD using these sticks.

The rig works fine with the old 2gb 1333 stick.

Any suggestions? I am a bit frustrated, been trying to solve this for about 6 hours now.

Answer:Windows stuck on classpnp.sys after RAM upgrade

Go into BIOS and load the defaults. Make sure RAM settings are auto for now. Try and report back please. XMP may be in the same setting where you select Auto.

Hello everyone! Sadly my first post here is written under pretty bad circumstances. I am one of the many people whose systems (in my case a Precision 15 5510) were "automatically" upgraded to Windows 10 without warning, as Microsoft changed the status of Windows 10 from an 'optional update' to that of a 'reccommended update'. After the installation completed, I was presented with the EULA and selected the 'decline' option and Windows notified me that if I continue with this option it will 'attempt to re-install Windows 7' so I did that. After supposedly re-installing Windows 7, my system restarted and booted with the Windows 7 logo but before the login screen appeared I got a blue screen and the laptop restarted. This subsequently happened every time I attempted to start my laptop, except for when I tried to boot in safe mode (which it did successfully). I restarted the laptop, pressed F8 and selected the Repair option and the Dell Backup and Recovery option after that.

I was prompted to upgrade to Windows 10 today on my Windows 8.1 Dell laptop. The upgrade has been sitting at 75% for several hours now and doesn't seem to be progressing. Should I leave it be or take some action?
Thanks!

Answer:My Windows 10 upgrade is stuck, should I take action or just leave it?

You may have to force shutdown by holding the power button. If it boots back up to 8.1, rather than resuming the upgrade, you can always try later. In the later case do a manual check for updates. Microsoft should be pushing patches as fast as they can.

Hi,

I just put together an MSI Z270 Motherboard with RX460 video card and Win 8.1. Every time I run the windows 10 upgrade assitant the system reboots and blue screen dialogue comes up that 'Installing Windows and system will reboot a few times'. Well after the first reboot nothing shows up on the screen short of the MSI UEFI boot logo and no spinning circles or anything underneath but the keyboard lights up and the hard drive led light is blinking suggesting something is going on. I just cant see what. Any ideas?

Thanks

I have just upgraded my Lenovo Flex 2 from Windows 8.1 to Windows 10 with the ISO MS had provided in their site. Things were going smoothly until after reaching 75%, the laptop rebooted and voila, an empty black screen was in front of me. After 1 hour of waiting for something to happen, I decided to shut down through holding the power button and restarted. The Lenovo logo and the spinning dots appeared but after a moment, the logo disappeared and the spinning dots have remained again for an hour. I have did everything from the sites Google has brought me to, including
- removing all wireless dongles (particularly the one for my wireless mouse)
- ctrl alt del

So earlier today I started to update my Nextbook 8" tablet through windows update. Since it didn't have enough storage to perform the upgrade, I was prompted to use an SD card which I did. The update downloaded fine but now the progress bar has been stuck in the same position for over 2 hours at the "preparing for installation" stage. If I restart the tablet will the upgrade start from scratch? Help will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 8 to 10 via Upgrade Assistant - Stuck on boot

As you're doing a clean install, I suggest doing it from a bootable USB drive. See the tutorials:

Windows 10 - Clean Install

USB Flash Drive - Create to Install Windows 10

There is probably a lot more detail there than you need to know. My preferred short version: use the Media Creation Tool to download an .iso for the version of Win 10 that you want. Use the "Rufus" application to produce a bootable USB drive. (I use DiskPart, a command line tool, but it's a little dangerous: you could erase a partition other than the one you want to.) Boot from the USB drive, and run the install from there.

This doesn't identify your problem, but I think that local installs are more reliable than doing it online.

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade stuck on spinning dots, did everything

Depending on what exactly had happened- which is completely uncertain at this point- you might be able to 'go back to your previous build' by booting from Win 10 installation media - e.g. burn your iso to a DVD- and via Repair your computer, navigate to the option to do that.

You could check to see if that's likely by looking at your system partition - if Windows.old is present, you may be able to.

Note: it only takes one incompatible program (there aren't many), or some disk corruption etc and something can go wrong.

You'll have realised it's best never to do major upgrades at critical times, and always have backups. You may prefer to copy your important documents off the disk and work on them elsewhere. You could do that by getting the boot disk (DVD or flash drive) from the top of the Software and Apps section in this forum, and booting from that.

We recommend using disk imaging time and time again- best update your disk image before key changes so you can restore your previous working state if sthg goes wrong, quite quickly and without technical help.

Hi everyone,

I have encountered the problem with my Dell PC.

When I am casually browsing online, sometime a black empty command box will pop up for 1 second and then disappear. And sometime it will pop up again 1 second later, and disappear immediately.

And then when I go to document folder, and nothing will be in the folder, the pathway box at top will be loading the green bar, it will takes forever, eventually it will get stuck, without showing any documents in the folder while in reality, it has several files saved. It was impossible to use outlook email app as well. And it will take a while for the mouse pointer to stop being refreshed. Dell PC will get stuck, and I won't be able to shut it down by clicking on shut down option using mouse pointer, only way I can shut down the PC is to press the physical button of shut down.

And then I will turn on the PC, which may take several attempt, and when it finally work, I will get notification at right bottom corner of my desktop which will say "Failed to connect to a Windows service. Windows couldn't connect to the Group Policy Client service. This problem prevents standard users from signing in. As an administrative user, you can review the system event log for details about why the service didn't respond."

Sometime it will work, and document folder will open instantly, showing all the files without any problem.

Hi all.
I tried to upgrade my daughters Dell Vostro laptop a few months back (free windows 10 upgrade).
Unfortunately it fell short of the full upgrade and rendered the laptop unusable. However, the laptop did return to a working Windows 7 (I presume Home edition - not sure how I can find out at the moment) for a brief period.
It then returned the reboot loop: Error 0xcf000000f - every option including repair, safe mode does not work and it enters another reboot.
I have managed to test it (Dell ePSA Pre boot system) and everything checks out ok (and I'm currently running the last of the memory test activity) but I simply cannot get windows to work.
The Laptop was either pre installed with Windows 7 or the disk has vanished over the past few years (relatively old laptop).

F2, F8, F12 options are not working (pressed whilst rebooting).
My daughter has a lot of her past on there (she never backed up unfortunately) so I'm at a loss as to what I can do? Looked in to Repair CD option, but apparently that won't work if Safe Mode cannot be accessed?

Apologioes if I've missed any info out.

Many thanks.

When I first installed Windows 7 several years ago, I moved my ProgramData and Users folders to my standalone drive, kept my Program Files and Windows on my RAID-0/SSD. It's been great to me, separating my RAID-0 SSDs from my data and no issues at all.

But now with Windows 10 coming, it seems that I'm stuck, and this set up can't perform in-place upgrades, which Gabe Aul says it's a requirement to get the free Windows 10. I know for starters Windows 8 and beyond does not play nice with a relocated ProgramData, even with junctions.

So what should I do now? Should I just clean re-install Windows 7 for the upgrade? I've already moved most of my data out of the Users folder and reconfigured my libraries. I also thought of doing an offline robocopy move and edit the entire registry to modify it back to C:, but a quick search in the registry seems the work is going to be tedious.

Answer:Relocated ProgramData and Users: Stuck for Windows 10 Upgrade?

I would say don`t upgrade to Windows 10

Why do you want to ruin your perfect setup ?

Why do you think you`re stuck ?

You don`t have to install 10 if you don`t want to.

My windows 7 PC was hard to start and restart and I needed to try 10 times or more before it worked (then I didn't restart it for days).
I managed to upgrade it to Windows 10 hoping that it will cure the problem BUT still it is a problem to start.
I checked everything and used every tool possible on windows 7 and windows 10 but nothing helped. (ccleaner and others failed)
So now I have a windows 10 PC that doesn't want to start easily.

Windows 7 sp1 to Windows 10 upgrade went well at first**. I was poking around the Windows 10 OS for a little while looking at an App or two. . . .

I chose to reboot. Now my machine boots to the lock screen. I see a photo background, the correct time and date (time updates properly) and one icon in the bottom right corner: the ethernet connection icon.

Of course, the mouse and keyboard work fine in the BIOS environment.
**At first, my full setup with multiple monitors, ATI Radeon 5770 video card, gaming mouse and keyboard worked perfectly well. This issue happened after my first manual reboot: start menu>reboot

Once I'm looking at the Lock Screen there is no response to the usb keyboard's input, nor usb mouse's input.

My PC setup at the moment:
(video card/multiple monitors removed, gaming keyboard and gaming mouse removed)
One monitor connected to the on-board video DVI output
basic usb keyboard and mouse connected (MoBo does not have PS/2 ports)

All systems are fully updated and well maintained:

Answer:Windows 10 upgrade Lenovo E440 Stuck on Black screen

I had the same issue with a Lenovo ThinkPad E555 and after much process of elimination, I figured it out.  I needed a newer BIOS version after the Windows 10 update. I figured this out when I wasn't able to even boot off Windows 10 DVD's or USB Boot Media.  I then took out the "problem hard drive" and put it into a different E555 that had Windows 10 and it booted fine. Process of elimination said it wasn't the Operating System or the Hard Drive.  So, I thought it had to be something with a BIOS setting or something related. All of the settings were the same, but I noticed the one that worked had a BIOS version from March 2016 (Version 1.19 in this case) and the one that didn't work had Version 1.15 from mid-2015. PROBLEM SOLVED!

Hi - new forum member, hope I'm doing this the right way.

I have a Samsung NP900x3D (i5 with 128Gb SSD and 4Gb RAM) running running Win 8.0 x64

After several months putting it off I decided to let Windows update itself to 8.1.

At some point during the upgrade it stopped and began cycling itself on & off, showing the blue screen message
"Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we'll restart for you". Then it's stuck in a loop; restart, samsung logo, blue screen, restart etc.

I cannot access the BIOS with f2.

I have made a recovery USB drive on another Win 8.0 x64 Samsung laptop (different model). The 900X will not boot from this in either the USB2 or USB3 port, and as I cannot access the BIOS I cannot check whether boot from USB is enabled. The boot time has always been very fast due to the SSD.

With more conventional laptops and desktops in the past I have usually been able to solve this sort of problem on my own, but I can't even get started with this! Does anyone have a suggestion how I might recover the computer, or do I have to take it in for repair?

I'm also wondering whether this is most likely to be a windows issue or could it be a hardware failure?

Many thanks
Nigel

Answer:Samsung 900x Windows 8 to 8.1 upgrade failed stuck in loop

I too this week encountered this issue, after speaking with Samsung support, they insisted this was my fault for installing the update and i would have to pay them for the privilege of re-imaging the msata hard drive. I thought otherwise and have tackled the re imaging myself, some items of software are required and one part required to complete the task.

The Steps i took were as follows -

1 - Purchased a msata to USB converter for about ?15.

2 - After removing the msata hard drive, insert in to the converter and back up all your files to another PC.

3 - Using another PC I next used a software tool - Hard Disk Low Level Format Tool - using this selected the correct HDD and removed all partitions, allowing the hard drive to be reinitialised.

4 - From windows Disk Management - reinitialised the HDD, the created 2 partitions, one is 200mb in size and formatted to FAT32 (this will become the EFI partition, and format the rest as NFTS.

5 - Download a copy of Windows 8 Enterprise from the Microsoft website, or if you have a disk that can also be used.

6 - Download a tool - Win to USB - and install.

7 - Run Win to USB - select the Windows 8 ISO, and choose the correct version required, then choose the destination drive to install, this will then show the two partitions with two check boxes, choose FAT32 partition for EFI, and NFTS for windows installation files. then let it install the files to the Hard drive.

Hi guys,  I recently got this laptop and wanted to upgrade to Windows 8.1 immediatly since it came with Windows 7. This was of course and option with the disc set that came with the laptop. Unfortunately i have encountered problems in the installation/recovery of Windows 8.1.  When the laptop is finished using the actual disc's (i say finished because it spits out disc 4 which is the last one) and is booting into the OS to do the last installing it "freezes" in the middle of "dowork.cmd". In the cmd window it tries to access a destination directory which it can't. Instead of writing it here, i'm just gonna link a picture of it:  I'm seriously at a loss of what to do. I just don't understand why simple recovery discs would cause a failure, and hope any of you have an idea of what to do. Googling the problem has only lead to this: https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Tablets/Factory-reset-Windows-install-stucks-at-dowork-cmd/td-...which is not really the exact same problem either.  Anyway, thanks in advance

Answer:Lenovo M30-70 - Windows 8.1 upgrade recovery disc set - stuck on installation

hi TheJtS,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
From your observation, the image on the Windows 8.1 Upgrade disc looks like it was either burned bad or the image itself is faulty.
 
If the M30-70 have a Windows 8.1 sticker at the bottom and it says Windows 8 STD in the BIOS then the motherboard likely contains a Windows 8/8.1 product key and the machine is likely downgraded to Win7 by the place of purchase.
 
Things that you can try:
1. Check this guide on how to obtain a Windows 8.1 ISO (see Option One)
2. When finished, follow this guide to make a bootable UEFI Win8.1 installer via DVD or USB flashdrive and use it to install Windows (the installation should be able to detect the Windows 8.1 product key in the UEFI firmware that will let you activate Windows).
3. If successful, obtain the drivers from the lenovo drivers page .
 
If the above procedure doesn't work, you may need to contact lenovo on how to go about getting a Windows 8 Recovery Disc.
 
In an event that the machine doesn't have a Windows 8 sticker / Win8 STD  license in the BIOS, then I recommend you contact the place of purchase on how to go about getting a new copy of Win8.1 upgrade discs as these discs may require a product key to be activated.
 
 
Regards

I believe I downloaded windows 10, clicked on "I accept" and now why has it been stuck for almost 4 hours on "preparing for the upgrade"?

Answer:Why is the upgrade to windows 10 stuck on "preparing for the upgrade?"

It took longer than 4 hours for my machine. Way more. I ended up going to sleep and finding everything fine the next morning.
Looking at the time of your post, it should be fine by now. If it isn't by now, then you've got a problem with it for sure.

I was just perusing my "c" drive to see if I had a "Windows Old" folder when I noticed a "Windows 10 Upgrade" folder and it is not small. Anyone know what this is why it's here and whether or not it can be deleted. Before anyone asks I did a clean install on this system not an upgrade though maybe this has to do with the "Anniversary Update" which really is a new version for all intents and purposes?

I'm trying to delete the Windows 10 upgrade folder from my Win 7.

I followed the instructions here:

http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/what-is-the-windows-bt-folder-on-my-hard-drive/

but when I go to delete the folder, I get this :

"You need to provide administrator permissions to delete this folder."

I DO have admin permissions.

What can I do to get rid of this? I do not want Windows 10.
 

Answer:Can't get rid of Windows 10 upgrade folder

Downloading and running this should take care of the problem:

It doesn't remove any folders, but does render them harmless.

I bought new memory but it's not really working so far.
I know I won't be able to use the full 4gb memory but that's okay.

Current Memory:
1GB Twinmos 001-667-TWI-240-U-16-H-5.0
1GB Kingston KVR667D2N5/1G
www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR667D2N5_1G.pdf

New memory

2x 2GB KINGSTON KVR667D2S5/2G www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR667D2S5_2G.pdf
Or KINGSTON KVR667D2N5/2G www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR667D2N5_2G.pdf

I put 1 stick on the board(to see how it goes) on Slot 1. Bios says 2048 ram in post and within the setup itself it displays the correct information DDR2 667 mhz 2048 mb.

Now when I start windows it is stuck in an infinite boot loop, Last known config, safe mode, nothing works.

Windows 7 setup from boot also gets stuck while loading before it even starts( no reboot)

Motherboard:
Asrock 775 twins rev 2.0

I read now that the memory is So-dimm ddr2.. does it matter much?

I bought it 2nd hand and it just said ddr2 667 mhz nothing about sofimm so I bought it assuming it's normal ddr2 667 mhz..


The package says:
KVR667D2S5/2g
2gb PC2-5300 CL5 200 - Pin SODIMM

On the memory it says:
KVR667D2N5/2g --sp 1.8v.

Answer:Memory upgrade 2GB stick windows reboot loop/ setup stuck

SO-DIMMs are usually used in notebooks. They are only 6cm long, and won't fit in your motherboard. Check out this link. SO-DIMM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is the specifications for your memory:http://www.valueram.com/datasheets/KVR667D2N5_2G.pdf

It ain't so-dimm.

Do you have access to another working computer? You might want to download and burn Memtest 86+. Then install both dimms in your motherboard, and boot from the CD and run some tests to see if the memory checks out ok.

You didn't say if you get stuck in the boot loop with your original memory installed? Can you clarify?

thanks

As the title says - the Latitude 7350 I have will not upgrade to Windows 10. After downloading and installing the Windows 10 upgrade, it boots to the Dell Logo and stays stuck there.
I have tried to disable secure boot and enable legacy ROMs, but this has not solved the problem.

Any help would be appreciated.

Addendum - the only way I have been able to get out of the situation has been by doing a factory refresh. Windows 8 successfully rolled back only once out of my 5 attempts to install Win10.

Hiya, so i recetly downloaded the Windows 8 Pro upgrade, made it an iso and put it on disk. the installation ran fine, i got to the four blue squares where it identified devices. It got past that perfectly fine, but was stuck on gettign ready. I left it there for about 30 minutes and when nothing happened i restarted the computer and restored my previous version of windows.

So basically, why did it get stuck on that for so long and what can i do to fix this problem?

After upgrading to latest Win 10 I am happy with all working well and want to delete the Windows.old folder. But although I am the administrator I get a message saying I need administrator rights to do this. I have even tried using the hidden administrator account but get the same refusal. I've never had trouble doing this before. Would welcome any suggestions to solve this problem. Thanks for any help. Kind regards Flissa.

Hi guys,

I know there's many threads on this subject but none seem to answer it for me.

System:

i7 950 X58A-UD3R Rev 2.0 16gb Ram GTX760. Pretty sure it's a Samsung 250gb SSD.

So I upgraded W7 to W10 via iso. Install made it all the way.

On reboot it's now suck on the black background, windows logo and spinning dots.

I've removed all wireless devices.

If you need any further info please let me know.

Any help would be appreciated

I would give it 15-30 minutes and then do a Hard Reset. Hold DOWN Power switch until the computer shuts down (probably about 6-8 seconds). Then, hit the Power switch to turn it back on.

Hi, I did an upgrade install W7 to W7 however I can't find the Windows.old folder to delete. I looked it up in disk cleanup as well but nothing.

I remember it would be in program files > windows.old or in the windows folder but I can't find anything even after enabling 'show hidden folders and files'.

In disk management drive C only has 1 partition (w7 installation 64-bit) but it's taking up around 70GB.

I'm using a SSD could that be the problem? I want to reclaim the space.

thanks,

Answer:Can't find Windows.Old folder after upgrade install.

The Windows.old folder would be on C: drive. But I'm not sure upgrade makes that folder. Not sure, I only do clean install.

I had a fairly important folder on my desktop when I upgraded to Windows 10. However, once I upgraded the file changed from a folder to a blank file and I cannot seem to open file location or anything like that. I have never run into this issue so I am unsure if this is common or if there is a way to fix this to get my files back.
Here is what the folder looks like now.

Are you guys/gals saving your 'old' windows folder after you upgrade to Vista from Windows XP? (Assuming you are not doing a format and clean install... I can't as I got an upgrade DVD)

Just looking for some thoughts, are there any benefits for me to keep this folder? I have old programs that I would probably just want to reinstall that are in the old windows folder.

Thanks, Pal

Somehow I managed to change the name of the Documents folder in Windows 8.1 upgrade to "OldDocuments". I do not know how but want to change it back to "Documents". Can any one tell me how to do it.
I have tried right clicking on the folder, but there is no option to change the name or rename. I have tried changing it in its Properties, but again there is no option to do so, so far as I can discover.
I am now at my wits end and would appreciate being told how to change its name.

Probably the best thing to do right now, is download what you need, and throw in an empty drive, disconnect all other drives, and clean install W10, then use your W7 key to activate it once you get to the desktop. Also, skip checking for updates at the beginning of the install, because the servers are being hammered now, and you'll just sit there idle, while nothing happens.

If you must review the failure log, it can be found at
C:\$WINDOWS.~BT\Sources\Panther\setuperr.log

You'll need to show hidden system files to find it, and you'll need to copy it to someplace else in order to open it.

7:40 to go. No time to lose.

I had a Windows 7 and Ubuntu dual boot. I chose to upgrade to Windows 10 but it failed causing me lose both my Ubuntu and Windows 7. I reinstalled Windows 7 using the recovery CD and was able to find all my Windows 7 data under Windows.old folder. I did not move this data to the new Windows 7 installation. I later chose to retry upgrading to Windows 10. This time the upgrade worked smoothly. However when I logged on to Windows 10, I see it has a Windows.old folder but does not have any data.
I think the upgrade only recovers data from previous installation however there is any data under windows.old folder in the previous installation that will not be recovered. Is there any way I can get this data back?

Thank you in advance. I think the upgrade might have created a new Windows.Old folder after deleting the existing one, which caused your data to be lost. You should have copied the data back to your windows 7 installation.

The install link recieved was used and the download happened, agreed to license agreement, upgrade appeared to go normally. Didn't stay with it the whole time but saw it start to do a shutdown, closed everything and then gave the message configuring updates and was at 4% but not changing for the few seconds that I watched it. Came back 10 mins later and it was showing the spinning circle and saying Shutting Down. Still like that over an hour an there doesn't appear to be any activity. Saw in a forum that you need to disable security. I have Norton and didn't do that. Wish that would have been instructions with the upgrade pertaining to that.

So I was running Vista Ultimate x64, then I decided to upgrade to Windows 7 with an upgrade iso file.

I had a folder on my desktop containing various movies and tv shows that was shared with the network. It at one point disappeared from the desktop but was still accessible in the network folder of this computer. (While I was running Vista)

I then upgraded, and now I have noticed the folder is completely missing!

It is not in the network folder, on my desktop, or anywhere obvious. I ran searches and it didn't find anything.

I used a program giving me a graphical representation of my hard drive called "Space Monger" and it has a 60GB folder (roughly the size of the movie folder) Entitled "System Volume Information" but the folder does not exist on my computer. Inside the folder are various files with no extension and seemingly random file names. The folder is also hidden and inaccessible.

Help!
