No difference still the same screen--not functioning

Where you able to do the system restore? Did it complete?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

It said not able to complete - can I put it back to Windows 8.1 or Windows 7? I have been told as windows has been over 3 weeks it can not be changed

Its 1 month, so we may still have time.
Do this to see
open the Start menu and select Settings. Click the “Update & security” icon and select “Recovery.”
You should see a “Go back to Windows 7″ or “Go back to Windows 8.1″ option. Click the Get started button to get rid of your Windows 10 install and restore your previous Windows install. Microsoft will ask you why you want to go back.
complete this and tell me please if it then reverts.

ok, then do this please
Press the windows key + X and click on Command prompt (admin)
A black window will open
Type in it
sfc /scannow
press enter and when it has completed, type in
chkdsk /r
Press enter.
It will give a message "the type of the file system is NTFS cannot lock current drive.
chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts y/n" Say Y, press enter and restart the computer.
Then tell me if the start menu opens please.
