I booted up my laptop this morning and found it was installing some huge Windows update i didn't know it was due to. There are something like 240,000 files to be updated but once it gets to just over 40,000 files updated the laptop goes into what i think is sleep mode (although it could be that it's just crashing - the screen goes black and the power light blinks as if in sleep mode).
This of course stops the update, and once i do a hard reboot the same process occurs again. I have tried several boot options to try to get into Windows so that i can switch off sleep mode (if that is the problem) but when i'm prompted to do a Repair because it recognises Windows didn't boot previously the screen just goes black and nothing happens, when i choose the option of starting with the last known good configuration after a few minutes of 'thinking' i'm just put back into the update cycle and it ends up in sleep mode.
I'm now trying dafe mode so i can maybe go back to a system restore point before the update was even initiated but i have a screen saying "Failure configuring Windows features. Reverting changes. Do not turn off your computer". But this screen has been up a while and i'm concerned the sleep mode issue will kick in again.
Sorry for the long-winded first post - does anyone have any advice? I'm tearing my hair out!!
