Having problems with your Acer Aspire 5100 Notebook ?

My Acer Aspire 5100 will not stop shuting down and restarting. It is trying to configure 3 of 3 updates. I tried the going through the F8 button and going through the last configuration section. That did not work. Is there anything else I can do?

I'm not sure if you're still connected but I have a couple more things to try here...so I'll type it out.

inthecellar says:
If you can get back to a command prompt again, you can try the following:

inthecellar says:
C:\\windows\\winsxs\\pending.xml C:\\windows\\winsxs\\pending.old.xml
C:\\windows\\winsxs\\cleanup.xml -> C:\\windows\\winsxs\\cleanup.old.xml

inthecellar says:
You want to rename the pending.xml to old and cleanup.xml to old.

inthecellar says:
if that doesn't work then try going into the bios of the Acer to choose recovery (which may erase all data) by hitting Alt-F10 while it boots up.
