  • What happens if you lost your charger for your hp or dell,acer cromebook,no outlet in range of your charger and everyone else doesn’t have a charger or currently doing it while updating and dies,just ask someone for a charger or swap seats 💺 to plug it in to update,or say I’ll update later.

  • I once had a pending update that I was too lazy to do for a little while. After returning from work ( Yes, I left my PC on so I could finish a project after work ) I see my pc was off and no longer booting, I suspect that the update decided to go anyway after I didn't click the button to reschedule it for later while at work and it tried to update while I had all my project stuff running and then proceeded to update and bricked my bootfiles. I had to reinstall windows to get it to work again. I am now terrified of the windows update icon

  • Bro, I did this way back when I'm new to computers, it was the first time I experience an update and I did not know what to do. I own a loptop and I had the habit of playing games without the battery, the update happened and the update says not to unplug the computer. It was novel and I got nervous but I unplug it anyway. I thought that solved the "problem". The next day the same blue screen came out before the windows open, I unplugged it for a couple of times and the same thing happened again and again. We approached a friend of ours and he said to wait it out. That incident introduced me to how computers work. I participated on programs that gives a better background about pc work, microsoft and other stuff, and now here I am.

  • That one time the adapter disconnected on my laptop with a dead battery while it was updating? Laptop needed to restore itself, took a few minutes, then it needed to update again, no biggie, it is almost like they are designed for these errors. Edit: Oh yeah, i also had it get stuck once, so had to completely turn it off, same issue as above.
