I Tried To Install Updates But One Or More Didn’t Get Installed

There are some errors that are just a matter of bad timing, and they can be caused by busy websites, overworked Internet connections, or a number of other factors. These problems can sometimes be corrected by trying to update again. Here’s how to check for updates manually:

  1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.

  2. In the left pane, click Check for updates, and then wait while Windows looks for the latest updates for your computer.

  3. If updates are found, click Install updates.

    Read and accept the license terms, and then click Finish if the update requires it.  If you’re prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

Note

  • Some updates might require that you restart your computer to finish installing. Save and close all your programs before restarting to prevent data loss.

  • Did you accept the Microsoft Software License Terms? Install the update again and review and accept the license terms.

    1. Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.

    2. Review any error messages.

    3. If an error message about license terms or cancelled updates is displayed, click Try again, and wait until you are prompted to review the license terms.

    4. Accept the license terms, and wait to see if the update is installed successfully.

  • Is there enough free disk space on your computer? If you need more free space on your hard disk, you might need to uninstall programs, delete your temporary Internet files, delete files that you don’t use, or empty the Recycle Bin, and then try again to install updates.

  • Did you cancel the installation process or disconnect from the Internet? It’s fine if you did. Just check for updates again and install any updates that were cancelled or interrupted.

  • Were you installing a driver update? Driver updates for devices such as video cards can occasionally cause errors because the files being installed are corrupt or aren’t the correct files for your version of Windows. Windows Update should provide you with the most up-to-date drivers for your verison of Windows. However, if you have a problem installing device drivers from Windows Update, contact the manufacturer of the device.

  • What else can I do? If the previous questions don’t address the problem, you can learn more about what happened and what to do next by reviewing any error messages that are displayed in Windows Update.

    • Open Windows Update by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Update, and then, in the list of results, click Windows Update.
