I have this laptop and an iPad that connect to my BTHomeHub

Resolved Question:

I have this laptop and an iPad that connect to my BTHomeHub ,but my partners laptop Aspire V3-571 recently stopped. I get an error 651 message. I think this may have occurred when an attempt to download windows 10 was aborted and 8 was reinstalled. Any suggestions
