Hello! My name is*****I am a certified computer professional who will assist you with the problem you described.You should be able to solve this problem by accessing the Windows 10 repair options. Please tell me which start up settings do you see?I am awaiting your reply.Thanks,IT Miro
Sorry for the delay. I cannot call you, but I can provide the instructions here.
Please list the startup settings 1-9 you see on the screen.
Thanks for the update!
Unfortunately, none of those Startup Settings will help with this problem. You will need to be able to access System Restore or Command Prompt. You can do that using a Windows 10 disc.
Do you happen to have a Windows 10 disc (media)?
Remote assistance works only when you can fully access your computer. I won't be able to remotely access your computer since you cannot log onto Windows.
To solve the problem you are experiencing, you have two options:
1. You can create a Windows 10 disc using another working computer. I can provide the instructions
2. You can restore your computer to the factory defaults. That will fix the problem, but will also delete everything on your computer
Let me know how you wish to proceed.
Buying a Windows 10 disc will cost you money. If you can access any other computer that can access the Internet and burn a blank DVD, you can create a Windows 10 disc for free.
Once you have a Windows 10 disc, you can load it into your computer and access the repair options.
Sure. Hold on...
Here is what to do on any working computer you can access. That computer will need to be able to access the Internet and be able to burn a DVD (DVD burner required).
1. On a working computer, open a web browser and go to this web address:
2. It will prompt you to download a file named MediaCreationTool. It is used to download the Windows 10 image file that you can burn onto a blank DVD
3. Run the downloaded tool and select the Create installation media for another PC option and click Next. Un-check the check-box at the bottom and select the same Windows 10 version that is installed on your computer, and click Next. "Windows 10" refers to the Windows 10 Home edition, and "Windows 10 Pro" refers to the Windows 10 Professional edition
4. You will then be able to choose between creating a bootable USB flash drive or a bootable disc (ISO file). My recommendation is to go with the bootable disc so that you can always have your own Windows 10 disc when needed. So, choose the ISO file option and click Next
5. Select where to store the Windows 10 ISO file and let it download. It will take some time for it to finish downloading since the file is about 2.5 GB in size
6. When done, you will need to burn the downloaded ISO file onto a blank DVD disc (not CD, but DVD). To do that, you can use a free program named Free ISO Burner which you can download on this link:
7. Start Free ISO Burner and insert a blank DVD. Click Open and locate the ISO file you downloaded using the media creation tool and then click Burn
8. After you have burned the disc, eject it and insert it into your computer
9. Restart your computer and it should then load the Windows 10 setup from the disc. If not, you will need to access the BIOS and set booting from the CD/DVD drive
10. At the Windows Setup screen, you will then be given a way to (re)install Windows 10, or to repair it. Select "Repair your computer" option located in the bottom left corner
11. The "Choose an option" screen will appear. On that screen, click on "Troubleshoot", and then click on "Advanced options"
12. On the "Advanced options" window, click on "System Restore". Click on "Windows 10"
13. The System Restore window will open. Click Next to see available restore points. Select the one that was created before your computer encountered the problem. Click Next and then Finish to start the restoration process, which usually takes several minutes. When done, your computer will restart and should boot to Windows 10 as before. Note that System Restore won't delete or restore any personal files. Only Windows and program settings are affected
Hopefully, that will help solve the problem.
You can print these instructions and follow them on another computer. If you encounter problem, or if System Restore didn't work, let me know and I will provide another way of repairing the problem using a Windows 10 disc.
If you are unable to open the disc drive on another working computer, you can first access the desktop and double-click on the "My Computer" or "My PC" icon to see the available disc drives. Locate the one you want to eject, right-click it and select Eject.
However, if you are unable to open it on your computer that cannot boot to Windows, you can get a tiny object and insert it into the hole that is located on every disc drive.
See this picture and video - it works on both laptop and desktop computers with a disc drive:
If you are not sure which Windows version is installed on your computer, here is how you can easily spot the difference between Windows 8 and Windows 10:
For Windows 8, when you power on the computer, you first see the Start screen, showing all the installed apps as tiles. If you want to go to desktop, you need to click on the Desktop tile. Windows 8 Start screen looks like this:
PICTURE - WINDOWS 8 START
For Windows 10, there is no the Start screen, but you automatically go to desktop, which looks like this:
PICTURE - WINDOWS 10 DESKTOP
If your computer originally came with Windows 8, it might have been upgraded to Windows 10. If that is the case, follow the instructions I sent you earlier.
However, if you haven't upgraded to Windows 10, you will need to use a Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 disc instead. In case you don't have it, the process of creating one is the same as for Windows 10 - you only need to use another Media Creation Tool.
Go to this web address to download the Media Creation Tool used for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1:
The rest is the same as for Windows 10. Get a blank DVD and burn the downloaded file using Free ISO Burner.
Windows 8 and Windows 10 look the same when booting, so unfortunately, you can't tell which Windows version is installed by just looking at the boot animation. The difference in the start screen I mentioned should tell you which Windows is installed. You just need to remember if you saw a start screen with the tiles or you saw the desktop right away when you logged into your Windows account.
If you are still not sure, you can create both a Windows 8 and Windows 10 disc using the provided instructions.
I am very glad your computer is up and running again!
