There's no reason you shouldn't be able to update assuming your copy of Windows is legitimate, unless there's a conflict with another program you might have running.

Have you installed any programs other than Windows? If so, I would suggest re-installing Windows over again, then installing all your drivers and updating immediately after that, prior to installing any other programs, including any anti-virus programs.
If something helped, or didn't, take a minute to let us know.
Thanks aren't always necessary, but are always appreciated.
There are only two men I trust with my computer. One's me. The other isn't you.

a clean install win 7

thanks for your reply, well i could of dune a clean install to 64bit than upgrading to win 7 32 bit from vista 32, bit but hp stopped selling this model of laptop with with vista before 7 come out,getting the drivers that work with 7 for a clean install is a real pig,as 7 does not have all the drivers for this model so upgrading was the only way,hp do not support this laptop in any way now so no help from them, and yes i switched off the the anti-virus and firewal,there was no other programs installed as they were already on the drive when i upgraded to win 7,so i am at a loss at this stage as microsoft are no help just sites with hints to what is wrong no answer there.

BTW how old is this ex-Vista Laptop that HP sold you with the promise of happy computing?

If it's very old then I can understand there is "no support" - but as products go out of production there is a strong case for support for at least 5-years IMHO...and as most issues are easily resolved by software tweaks (once - then available to download), the HP support is virtually costless.
However, if they "pull the plug" - as MS is doing with XP soon, then you maybe need to ask if you'll buy any of their kit in the future.

It takes a company many years to build-up a good reputation, and a very short while to destroy it. Folks have an "image" of a company that is very difficult to replace.
