Windodws Updates fail to install themselves

Dell C521  64 bits,  dual processor
Media Center Edition Ver 2002  SP3

Windows update  downloaded six updates Thursday morning, but
only four of them installed.  Here are the  four that
failed: There was the same error code for all four:  Error
code:  0x800710 da:

KB982214, KB981852, KB2183461, KB981997

FWIW, my wife's laptop downloaded and installed eleven (11)
updates without incident.  It has Home Edition on it.

I Googled the error code but I can't  make any sense of the
two pages that turned up.  They have nothing even remotely
similar to what I do.  

Any suggestions?  I ask for advice here because I consider
the Microsoft Update help only as a last resort.

Thanks

First - while your system may be 64-bit capable - it is *not* 64-bit in 
practice.  I know this because Windows XP Media Center Edition did not come 
in 64-bit and if you have SP3 - you don't have a 64-bit version of Windows 
XP of any flavor.

Download the first one (save it, run it) - see if it installs manually.

Are any of the following updates listed in Add/Remove Programs? => KB979559; 
KB979683; KB977165; KB2286198; KB982381

What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your 
subscription current?  What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)? 
What third-party firewall (if any)?

Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the 
computer?

Did a Norton or McAfee free-trial come preinstalled on the computer when you 
bought it? (Doesn't matter if you never used or Activated it.)

FYI: With the demise of Windows Update newsgroup on 01 July 2010, you will 
find support for Windows Update in this MS forum now: 
http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vistawu/threads

Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2; 
Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your current IE 
version (e.g., IE6, IE7, IE8) in your first post.

I got those system items by right clicking MyComputer and
selecting Properties.  I know that some of my old 98
programs will not run on the MCE desktop while they run fine
on my HomeEdition laptop.  Go figger.

That was absolutely stupendous advice.  I redid windows
update, and it reported nine failed updates.  Instead of
selecting Express Update I took the other choice.  This
allowed me to select a single update.  I selected the first
one as you suggested, some cumulative thing, and  told it to
install itself.

Then I sat back and waited for the Failed message to come
back to mock me, but surprise!  It installed itself!  Then,
since I thought my luck might suddenly be running, I did an
express install on the remaining eight.  They all installed!

Fantastic!  Thank you so much.

Chart will not update!

I have a file with about 15 sheets, each with a fair amount of complex calculations, involving lookups and suchlike. Most of the sheets also contain one or more charts. The problem is that if I update the data, all the data re-calculates (automatic calculation is set to On and Iterations is set to 100) but the charts refuse to update. Pressing F9 or CTRL-ALT-F9 doesn't update the charts, although it does update all the worksheet c...

Update
I wanted to share my findings with the group regarding the Time stamp issue, as it seems to be a rather rare and ambiguous subject. As it turns out, the time stamp is quite a useful feature and RMS fully supports it. The main benefit is that it allows the store or a particular department to remain open and make sales, while the physical inventory is being taken. Consider the following scenario: At 8:00 am you run your new Physical Inventory Count sheet. At 8:15 you scan item Z with a quantity of 8. At 8:30 you sell 2 of item Z off the shelf. At 9:00 you upload the counted items into a fi...

Column not getting updated
Hi Guy, Trigger below is not updating ODS_INST_ID column as it should when new row is inserted. This behavior happens when new row is a copy of existing row i.e. source row already has data in ODS_INST_ID.

Strangely, if 4 rows are to be copied, trigger works only for 1 row. Any idea what may wrong with the trigger below?
