Hello guys! I've just updated my laptop with the windows update and its crashed and saying "Error: Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might have caused the issue after you install Windows Updates". I've tried doing both options it asks me to do and it still crashes! Help PLEASE!:D

Was this machine powered OFF before the updates were complete?

Also make and model may help?

Google on how to restore the most recent registry/"settings that worked"

Which release of Windows is it?

Off topic but for heaven's sake - pick an *appropriate* subject title next time...

Being that it is a laptop, was in running on the battery or on external power?

Did it really shut down, or did it go to sleep/hibernation?
