    Fall creators update not initializing(?)


    So when i booted my pc this morning, i was greeted with the "hello" screen of the windows update. But then it just stops fading in and giving me black screens amd half-faded in sentences. I decided to give it a while, but after 4 hours it hasn't gotten a step further. The screen is flickering and freezing and i think it's restarting every time.

    I don't think I did anything wrong but I might have. I have not turned of the pc since the beginning of the update. Any help, if at all possible, would be fantastic, but i also have backups of my files.

    Thx in advance

    Hi there, pluumenbrownie. Welcome to TenForums.

    Sounds like a faulty video driver. Let's see if we can get you to boot into Safe Mode. Then we can do some searching. I assume you have another PC or device you can post from also?

    Do option 2 of this tutorial:

    Hello HippsieGypsie,

    Are you shure this is safe for my pc? It is doing an update and i have been recommended not to turn it off by a friend.

    Also, thanks for your time

    That's certainly a good point and thought about that as well. Some laptops take awhile to upgrade, but towers not nearly as long. Certainly not 4 hours.

    Did this update initialize itself? Did you backup your personal files before the update process started?

    Oh don't feel that way. Not your fault. I didn't think of that either, but there was surely a risk in rebooting. I'm so glad that fixed it for you.

    You do backup, yes? Turn on restore points, cuz it's off by default.

    Good luck to you and happy computing. :)
