Unable to upgrade to windows vista service pack 2, error: "driver will not work"
  

I have installed the windows vista service pack 1 on mine dell laptop. Last night I have tried to update mine windows vista to service pack but during the upgrading time I have go the following error:” driver will not work “and after that mine up gradation was stopped. Now I don’t know how to solve this issue. Can anyone suggest on this. I can also say that I've received blue screens multiple times last night for normal use. Something about mini dump and I am concerned, the laptop is not even a day old and still I have the blue screen Sometimes the desktop more than we've had for 9 years. Is this scenario damage or do i need to get a new laptop.

I would like to suggest you to upgrade your operating system on the safe mode and after that you won’t get the error and you issue will get solved. To do this you need to follow the below steps: first close the all application on your system and after that restart your system. While restarting the system hit or press the F8 button from the keyboard constantly and by hitting this you will get the boot up screen. Now on the boot menu make enter on the safemode with networking through arrow key on the keyboard. Now when you login with the safemode try to update your system.

I would like to recommend you to perform the system restore and so that you can solve your issue. To do this you need to follow the below steps: first go to the start symbol on the desktop and after that make hit on the all program. Now on the all program go to the accessories and then choose the system tolls. Now on the system tools select the system restore. Now on the system restore application type the date before issue encountered and after that hit the next. Now follow the steps in the wizards and once you finish the system restore restart your system and after that go through your issue.
