I have a HP dv6-2155dx laptop that is 6 years old. The harddrive is a seagate and i think it recently gave up on me. So I put in a Crucial M500 240GB and loaded the HP restore discs with Windows 7 Home Premium. I've loaded it 3 times, each ti e everything works fine except for Windows Update. It always tells me the system is not running, even though I have Automatic Updates turned on. I've installed every HP driver, Crucial driver and Microsoft driver to fix the problem to no avail. Even the direct downloads of Windows updates, including SP1, fail during install. Even the Windows Update diagnostic tool fails to start. It's like the freakin computer has a mind of its own and deliberately thwarting every attempt to update windows. I'm all out of ideas.
