There are many reasons why no one has replied. I apologize. This forum is international and not everyone on here is versed in all issues/ aspects of the computer world. We are also all volunteers.
The failure of SP 3 could be due to many things.
Corruption of some of the system files.
A virus, malware, spyware.
Interaction between a program. Usually the virus scanner.
Some devices not recognised
The fact that you tried to run a driver update program and it failed, usually means an issue with the computer that needs to be resolved.
Did the program fail to install/ run, or did it run and show outdated drivers?
Have you looked at STEPS TO TAKE BEFORE INSTALLING WINDOWS SP 3?
Are you trying to install using windows update? If so, try a full download from HERE.
Did you run chkdsk /f and check the system files?
check in device manager for any ? or !.
We can at least start here.

They could very well be the problem.
