Windows 7: Windows Updates Not Installing : Error Unknown (Sits on Installing)

So I switched both to the other 2 available, continued to get the errors. I tried each individually in the same slot to insure consistency. One had errors, the other did not. I am assuming that I have a bad stick of ram?

Well having to spend another 50 bucks on a system I probably spent about 2k on (including quad screens) is not a big deal and very much a relief. Windows looks to be installing properly now with just the 4 gigs of ram in( fingers crossed). But I will be sure to let you know how that goes. The help you have given is very much appreciated. It still boggles my mind that something like that can mess with the entire system.

Everything goes through the RAM at some point - if it gets corrupted along the way, then strange things happen., and what you read from the disk may not be what's written back, or what the program is actually working on.

Doesn't me Faticus I had a PSU in my tester that showed volts but come to the crunch didn't have the amps mate. Plus I have had a few fixes that just didn't like sticks that normally would have been throttled back to the motherboard support rating..

By the way when you look at PSU's look at the rail currents (amps) it is fairly pointless as Noel said looking at the claimed wattage it is usually the total of all rails.
Using Ohms law you can very quickly find the current rating of the different rails and today the 12v rails are all important.
Not to say the other rails are not but say for example the 12v rail was showing 25amps using Ohms law that runs out at 300 watts. For an exercise if you want look at your PSU (there will be a label on the side) find the 12v+ rail amps multiply the amps by the 12v and you get the actual wattage, therefore in my example 12 x 25 = 300!! (same applies to the other volt rails) .

131 windows updates later and it looks like I am golden. Just ordered some replacement 8 gigs of The same ram for 48 dollars. Wanted to Thank you guys again as it is a relief that it isn't a bigger problem. I consider my issue resolved but I will be sure to give the SSDs another go in the near future.
