Computer crashes when updating to sp2


I have reset my bios and changed every setting I can think of, but nothing works.I have also completely formatted and re-patitioned my hard drive.I have windows 7 installed on a PC I built a little over a year ago.

I had bought compaq Presario CQ50-215NR to my dad few years back. It still has SP1, i thought when automatic update is on and its updating regularly, it should automatically update to SP2, isnt it? I tried to run windows update manually and when i check, it only find some office 2010 updates and 2-3 optional bing related GSA-T20N (S05D) Windows Vista SP2 Now, out of...Comp Model = Dell Inspiron 1521 Comp OS = Windows Vista (no service packs) When I ran the install for Vista service pack 2, it gets stuck on "installing service pack stage 3 of 3".When I install windows it works fine, I can turn my computer off and on as many times as I want and it will be fine, but if I install any video card drivers or any of the updates that windows tells me to install, the next time it boots up I either get the windows splash screen or a black screen right after it says, "starting windows", and shows the 4 orb things that spin around and turn into the windows logo.It stays on this screen for 5-10 seconds and then continues to black or the splash screen.At the moment there is not a work around for this issue as you can not uninstall the update because Explorer will crash as soon as you select it in Hopefully Microsoft will address this issue quickly as Windows 10 will be officially released on 29 July 2015 - just three days from now.Have you had any crashes with this update performing these or other system tasks? I'm running XP home, SP1, and have plenty of HD space between two internal drives I have. One more question before I do said task, do any of the files on my master HD remain like my documents and so on? I'm guessing its not really because of the programs themselves, but more so because of my system.If you can’t install i Tunes on your Windows PC, or if you see “error 2” or "Apple Application Support was not found" after you install the software, follow the steps below in order.If you see a different error when trying to launch i Tunes, learn how to fix unexpected quits or launch issues.
