Windows Update Hangs at 12% or 13% – SOLVED!

windows updating hangingDon’t you love windows updates? It usually goes like this:

Question/Concern: Why is mycomputer not running right, something is whacky with it?

  • Answer: You probably need some windows updates… run that first

Question/Concern: Why is mycomputer not running right, something is whacky with it?

  • Answer: Did you run windows update??? Oh man.. you gotta roll that back!!

Anyways onto figuring out why your computer might be hanging at the 12% or 13% mark.

Actually WARNING!! – Unless you have too, don’t ever power off  your machine when it is updating. You could really mess some stuff up! Go get a bowl of cereal and give it more time…

I had 2 people run into this issue in the last few days. Both laptop users, no desktops.

Problem: Update kept hanging at 12% then it would restart and doing it again.

Solution: Both had docking stations. Once we removed it from the docking station, biggity bamm! Everything updated fine and dandy! Easy enough right!

If this is happening on your desktop or laptop which doesnt not use a docking station, see what else you might have plugged into a usb port and unplug it all except for the mouse and keyboard “for desktops”, for laptops I would have nothing but your power cord and network cable plugged in.

Hope this helps! I am 2 for 2, so let me know if this has happened to you and leave a comment below!
