    Hey all,

    Just a while ago i used windows update feature of windows 7 to download those important/recommended updates which were for my newly installed office 2007. The downloads finished and installed normally but it won't boot pass the windows logo after the restart to finish the updates. There is just a black screen with a underscore flashing. How do i fix this guys?

    Hey mate thnx for replying i thought now one will :p i tried a lot of things including that and nothing worked until i took off the memory card from the card reading slot on my CPU's cabinet. Weird. So it seems like i have to take it out before restarting or shutting down or the system won't boot properly!

    Sounds like it is trying to boot from that memory card, you might check the bios settings.
