    Some firmware applies to the dock, and Windows remembers if you have had a dock connected. So be sure to connect all devices you own before doing this update.

    Did that. It did not work. I also tried Microsoft Fix It. That didn't work either.

    Do you see a service running entitled "Windows Update"?. Kill it (Stop or Disable) and immediately cold reboot.

    But not as painful as repeatedly attempting to install this update.

    I'd be careful with this update. i have had very little issues with any of the updates until this one.

    I haven't seen any of the battery issues others have(Simplo battery) but after this update, when it restarted, in 10 minutes my battery went from 50% to 0% and I mean ZERO. I put it on the charger and it got to 99% and stopped. Now my battery percentage is STUCK on 99%,. I have been using it for a couple hours now and the battery percentage still says 99% and so doe the battery report.

    It still seems to charge bu the only way to tell where my battery is, it to wait a while and see what the estimated time left is. That still seems to be working.

    Any ideas on how to get the battery percentage to start working again?

    So to followup on my issue, my battery % finally started working agin but ONLY after leaving it in the charger overnight and getting the charge to go from 99% to 100%. Once it finally pushed to 100%, it has started showing the proper batter % as it has been discharging.
