Default PC boots sometimes..

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with 4GB of RAM running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1

After this one update from Microsoft, my computer will only boot in safe modes (every kind of safe mode) and after a reboot it will boot back into regular windows fine, install a update and fail to boot again. It hangs at a blank screen with the mouse after the bootanimation is done.

Which update is it? I don't know yet because I just figured out now that it's not booting because of an update.

Read updates in thread.

This looks promising:
Error codes

Method 1 has an automatic fix it tool and it just fixed 2 errors

Read the newer posts, the error was windows update itself. It had a database error.........



Yea, I seem to fix things myself when I think out loud...

Gonna try updating again and see what happens.

If anything maybe it installed the wrong drivers for your wireless card.

I know that this has happened to me and literally caused the exact same problem lol

I found the right drivers online and installed them overtop of what windows did and everything went back to normal.
