As there are a dozen fixes I start with each one till it gives it up.
Has anyone else experienced a problem updating from Win 8 to 8.1 after an OS refresh?
My Dell Inspiron, i5 @ 1.7Ghz, 6 GB ram laptop was originally a Windows 8 machine which I later updated to 8.1. However, after the refresh, it went back to Windows 8. Now the update back to 8.1 will not install. It replies with:
"Something happened and Windows 8.1 couldn't be installed. Please try again. Error code 0x80070005".
It will download but no matter how many times I try, the install fails. Any help out there??
