Windows 7: Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7 Home Edition - Updates won't Start

Toshiba Laptop with Windows 7 Home Edition - Updates won't Start

Hello Everyone:

I just purchased a New Western Digital 750 GB Hard Drive for my Toshiba Laptop Computer. It is running Windows 7 Home Edition 64 Bit.
I purchased the Recovery DVDS directly from the manufacturer.

I installed windows, and now, Windows Update will not start.
I already tried the "Microsoft Fix It", and it didn't work. I have already verified that the service is started, and any other services required to run it are set to start automatically.

It seems that no matter what I do, Windows Update will not Run.

Can anyone help me to resolve this problem?

I would appreciate it very much.

Sincerely,

Starbuck58

Starbuck,
Welcome to SevenForums.

You might want to consider not putting everything in a bold typeface.

I'm confused.

Your laptop came with a hard drive installed.

The hard drive had an os on it.

Do you still have the original hard drive with the Win 7 Operating System? Yes/ No

Hello Karlsnooks:

Yes, I still have the original hard drive, but it failed. Image of OS damaged.
I ordered recovery set from Toshiba. Installed 15 times with same result. Windows update won't work. I've tried every conceivable fix from Microsoft, nothing works.

I even contacted Toshiba, and they told me I had a bad set of recovery disc's.

I formatted the new WD Sata HD again, and Installed OS yet again.

Always the same result. Error Code: 0xc8000222.
I got a message in windows update folder that says," Failed Software Synchronization".

Any suggestions or ideas that you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Starbuck

If the recovery dvds are bad, then don't use them.

When you say you "installed the OS yet again" :
what OS?
From DVD or USB?
source of the OS is?

Make sure your time zone, time, and date are exactly correct then synchronize them with internet time. I have forgotten to do this a million times. After doing so it should automatically set the bios time as well. You may have reset the bios time at some given point or your bios battery is dead. if so you should change it. good luck.

Here is a link if you do not know how.

P.S. if internet time fails to sycronize the first time, click "update now" again a few times. but make sure your time zone and time are set right first. otherwise it may fail to sink with internet time.

Here is a forum on deleting that folder and what it does.

Toshiba Laptop Windows 7 64 Bit OS

Hello Karlsnook:

Apparently we are having communication issues.

This is what Iím dealing with:

Toshiba Laptop Computer, Windows 7 64 Bit Operating System.
I have received a second set of recovery discs from Toshiba.

Windows 7 64 Bit Operating System displays the same error code: 0xc8000222.

Microsoft Fix doesnít work. I also tried installing updated Windows Update Agent and that didnít work. I tried re-naming Windows Update Folder as suggested by another forum member, and that didnít work.

I contacted Toshiba, who told me to contact Microsoft, who in turn referred me back to Toshiba.

Sounds like the old shuffle game to me. Microsoft passing on their issues to someone else.

Anyways, any suggestions you have. Please let me know.
Iím still trying to correct this issue.
Windows Update doesnít work no matter what I do to correct it.

Regards, Starbuck

Your Welcome Starbuck58. Was it the time issue, or was it the %windir%\SoftwareDistribution folder? Make sure to mark as solved.
