I could not get widows update to successfully install service pack 1, there were about 10 "failed" installs. Each time it was unable to download the update. So I went ahead and downloaded the SP manually. I've seen many posts around here that doing so is not a great idea. But I couldn't find any fix for my problem so I went ahead anyway.

The install was fairly smooth. There was a glitch at one point, but after a reboot, everything seemed to be fine. That is until I tried to wake the computer up from sleep mode. Everything seemed normal at first, but after a few seconds the pointer was moving very slowly and jumping and then the computer froze up completely. Alt+ctrl+del did nothing, the keyboard was also locked up. I tried all the fixes I found here and elsewhere and nothing worked. So, I turned off sleep mode and everything is fine.

Problem is, that's a huge waste of energy, so I'd like to get this problem fixed. I figured I'd try to uninstall and then reinstall SP1. But I keep getting, "Installer encountered an error: 0x80070057. The parameter is incorrect." each time I try the uninstall. Either from "Programs and Features" or from an elevated command prompt. Everywhere I've looked it says one of those ways will work, or you've deleted your install files. But my install files are all still where they're supposed to be.

Anyone have any ideas for me?

Thank you for the response. But that solution does not apply. I have no key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\COMPONENTS.

No go. It says, "This Microsoft Fix it does not apply to your operating system or application version."

I tried updating some drivers that Windows Update did not update to see if that might help. I still cannot get SP1 to uninstall, but instead of getting, "Installer encountered an error: 0x80070057. The parameter is incorrect." I get, "An error has occurred. Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled."

Any other suggestions?

Hi dkelber,

Can you try this for me:

Start> and type cmd in the search bar at the bottom. cmd.exe will show at the top of the list. Right click on it and select 'Run as Administrator' and click Yes when prompted. The at the Command Prompt type sfc/verifyonly and hit Enter. Let it work. Just want to verify that you don't have any damages system files.

I tried the upgrade with just sp1 slipstreamed and I got the error, "Your current version of Windows is more recent than the version you are trying to upgrade to. Windows cannot complete the upgrade." So, i slipstreamed all the updates that were installed on my computer by Windows Update since sp1 (Or at least I think I did). But I am getting the same message.

Thanks for the assistance!
