I'm trying to recover a friends laptop after a virus attack and used the recovery partition. Now I'm trying to update everything including drivers, etc - but SP3 will only go to about 20% and stop - that's it, no more. I've gone ot MS's website and done all their stuff like changing the download folder name, etc. - but still no luck. This has an AMD processor and I fixed an HP before that and AMD and it required a special patch before SP3 would run, but Acer's website sucks. Any help out there.?
I've got the same problem; Acer Aspire 5670 had problems, backed up all data then tried a reformat/recover to factory new condition using the partition drive. It properly loaded all the system but then in booting up says "loading OS" and then won't go anywhere else.
