I just did a factory restore on my old Lenovo ThinkPad W510 laptop that was running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit and now I'm unable to update it. When I go to the Updates dialog I see this:
I click the "Check for updates" button and... nothing. I've let it sit for several days thinking that it'd just update on it's own and... nothing.
edit: this question is not a duplicate of Windows 7 SP1 Windows Update stuck checking for updates for the following reasons:
- The symptoms are different as depicted in the screenshot. This isn't stuck on a "Checking for updates" screen as it's not even getting to that screen.
- This Windows 7 did not have SP1 installed whereas the one in the alleged duplicate is.
If this question does get closed as being a duplicate I'll nominate to re-open and, failing that, seek clarification as to how exactly this is a duplicate in Meta.
