My laptop has been giving me issues since shortly after the warranty on my laptop expired in mid 2009. Most of them have usually small issues I could fix on my own, but lately it's just been driving me insane. I have a ton of other issues I'd like to talk about, but the main one right now is the my Vista is not updating. The last time my computer successful updated; according to its history, is 05/02/2011. So, that's quite a while back, and I didn't notice until recently. Every time I try to get it to check for updates, this comes up, "An error occurred while checking for new updates for your computer. Code 80070490 Windows uncovered an unknown error." So, I went to the get help section and followed the steps and stuff...it didn't work. I tried the whole manual update, I got another error. Can someone help me?
I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 and a lot of the issues I've had/have seem to be common with other people who have this system.
