Hi Krisanne,

I would like to know if you are trying to restore the computer to factory settings or you have already done that. Regarding the Windows update, is there any error message available when you are trying to run Windows update?

To know more about Dell's products, services and drivers & downloads, please go to http://dell.to/YBlak6

Thanks & Regards
