Re: Failed configuring windows update y580

'afternoon.

 

please check to see if KB2647753 is in your list of updates to be installed. if so, install it first, all by itself with no other updates selected. do any required reboot. once that one installs successfully, all of the others should succeed. this is a known Microsoft issue.

 

please do let us know if this works for you.

regards.

Re: Failed configuring windows update y580

Hi

Could you be more specific how to check if KB2647753 is installed? And how to install it?

I have very poor knowledge on this kind of things.

Thanks for help.

Re: Failed configuring windows update y580

Hello and welcome,

 

To check whether that update is already installed, open Windows Update - either via Control Panel or Start button, then typing Windows Update in the search box.  There's a "view update history" link on the left side of Windows Update.  You can look for the KB there.

 

To install it separately (to avoid the problem addressed in this thread): when Windows Update presents a list of updates to be installed, deselect all but that KB and let update run.  Then either check for updates again or just wait until it runs again on its own.  It should present the rest of the updates, and you can just let it proceed normally.

 

This all presumes you've selected "Check for updates but let me choose..." in the Windows Update "change settings" options.  Otherwise it will just try to install automatically and fail.

 

Z.

Re: Failed configuring windows update y580

Will this fix work with an Ideapad Z580 also?
