Well it's moved along. That's a good thing.

With updates I have mine set to let me choose what ones to download. The update icon lets you know when updates are available. Pretty much what that link says although windows 7 is a little bit different.

It is installing because the updates are already downloaded. I don't know why it will run with no battery or power though.

Gary,
He could being running on power supply from wall.

Somewhere I read that it may or may not extend battery life if you remove battery when electric power supply is available. But my memory has failed me before so don't take this as Gospel truth.

hello

sorry i wanst clear,i just removed my battery in order for the laptop to shut down completely,because the laptop doesnt give me any options to close it down,so it was a move of desperation.and when i put in the battery again it was going crazy runnig down updates on the screen.

Have you completed the update install yet?
Make sure when all updates have downloaded and install is complete to reboot your computer.
