  • Tried to factory reset my laptop following a BSOD restart loop, BSOD during reset

    Hi,

    My laptop got into a BSOD restart loop yesterday and as I was looking for a possible fix it ended on its own.

    Today the same problem happened except after and hour+ of waiting I decided to reset my laptop (keeping files) but another BSOD came up. So I tried factory resetting it and another BSOD interrupted it. I am now stuck with no windows on my laptop. If I press F11 on startup and go to advanced troubleshoot options, I am no longer able to restore or reset my PC.

    Is there any way for me to solve this problem and reinstall Windows 10 ? Or do I have to send my PC to HP for support (I bought this PC about 3 months ago).

    In that case since you have already tried Resetting windows without any success, it means essential system files are either missing or corrupted due virus or malware infection. To restore your PC faster, you need to have a USB drive at least 8gb, internet access and PC. Creating a reset disk is necessary since you have to repair those missing files or do a clean installation in that case.

    The best way to do this is for you to enter the advanced mode in settings so that you can access advanced tools in order for you to be able to makes changes and correct files created by malware, virus, failed updates or drivers by either uninstalling updates, or use the restore point to take back your PC to the previous state without loosing your personal data. You have to enter recovery mode for you to make those changes.

Sometimes when you try to perform a restore point it doesn’t end successfully therefore uninstalling updates as shown in the recovery mode above will be so useful to undo the changes that were made. This will restore the windows system files back to the previous state where it was working best before the update was made.
