    Hi I had to do a factory reset on my friends Toshiba and now it wont update. My friend has a Toshiba Satellite Laptop which is a Windows 8.1 64 bit, 4 gig. The reason for a reset was do to constant freezing and video lagging. There were several things that were ocurring. I had done scans to make sure is was not a virus issue before doing a factory reset.

    I have checked services to make sure it was turned on.

    I tried to upload a snipit to show you the error but for some reason it wont let me download it Argh! It should have downloaded.

    Here is the error code on the update page 8024A008

    Error Code 8024A008 fix

    "download the Windows Update PowerShell Module from following link:

    Download Windows Update PowerShell Module

    The module is in ZIP format, so you can easily extract it using decompression software like 7-zip so that you’ll got the PSWindowsUpdate folder.

    2. Now press [​IMG] + R and type this into the Run dialog box and press Enter key / click OK:

    %WINDIR%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\Modules

    3. Now copy the extracted ZIP folder named as PSWindowsUpdate from step 1 to Modules folder so opened from step 2:

    4. Moving on, Go to Start Screen, press [​IMG] + I, click Tiles and set the slider to Yes for Show administrative tools. From administrative tools so pinned to Start Screen now, open the administrative Windows PowerShell ISE and execute following commands one by one after pressing Enter key:

    Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

    Import-Module PSWindowsUpdate

    Get-WUInstall

    5. Get the things work done until you are asked to reboot. Once a reboot is done, you can check, download or install Windows Updates as usual."

    apart from another reset or a windows fix download for win8
    see the page for the fixit:
    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/971058

    "The Automatically diagnose and fix common problems with Windows Update troubleshooter may automatically fix the problem".

    the ongoing upgrade to win10 has left the update issue behind.
