    Windows Update Error

    Had to do a repair of the emachine.  The disk was missing or never recvd - friend was not sure.  Used a win home xp sp2 cd full version (mine) and his key on the back of his machine.  When he put in the key he used caps and caused a question of validity - called got person and put in number given.  Got a star in the sys tray. Went to site to validate, no star nolonger.  Got error when in update.  Got to end of download of win installer - would fail each time. After research downloaded the validation diag utility.  Ran it and it said everything validated. Submitted to tech support this morning. 

    My questions are- is it usually at most 24 hours or could it be longer and

    what exactly would be the solution - is it going to take a couple of days or do I just click on a link to a site and the site takes the machine through a active x sequence. 

    Time is really of the essence - I know everything always is :~) I would have paid to call them if that option had been given.  But it was not so really I am just sitting on my worry right now...

  • Thanks but been there done that - talked with emachines before and no support with that machine to get a cd.  Plus the problem I believe if I am correct was not the cd but that the genuine key that was on the back of the machine was typed in with the caps on .... at least that was verified by the microsoft cs that I talked to... I was just asking about support.  And how long it usually took.
