So I built my third PC in May of this year and have been increasingly experiencing problems. These problems include inability to install SP1, IE crashing, Firefox crashing, and even more frustrating, BSODs.
The errors I received when trying to install SP1 were 0x80070570 and 0x80070490. I looked them up and tried all the suggestions that I was allowed to do. For example, I was not able to complete a disk check before startup because of some error.
This led me to finally do a repair upgrade which was suggested in some forums. I followed a PCWorld article and did what they told me until during the upgrade repair, I received error 0x80070241. It says some of the install files were corrupt or something along those lines.
I am not very computer savvy, so if you can please provide a link for help that requires me to do something above a normal computer user's capabilities would be appreciated. I've started graduate school and I really need my computer to not crash and BSOD. Please help and you'll have my undying gratitude forever! Thanks!
