  1. Accidentally broke everything, need help ASAP


    So basically, I was trying to install Arch Linux alongside Windows

    I was being REALLY REALLY Really stupid, saw a seemingly useless 15GB recovery partition, and was like "hey, I can use this for Arch" because I didn't wanna cut into my main partition's storage as it was already getting low.

    So Arch fails to install because the files on the USB are totally screwed over as well because Rufus made a big oopsie, and none of the commands work. So I boot back into Windows to re-run Rufus and burn Arch to my USB.

    And when I try to boot, uh. The screen just begins flashing on and off. On and off. On and off. Occasionally showing garbage pixels. And mostly just black. No error messages or anything.

    Startup repair doesn't do jack.

    Safe mode almost works, but then it just flashes again but now occasionally showing "safe mode" in the corners like its trying to display something

    Then I spend 2 hours on another PC (running only Ubuntu) downloading the Windows 10 ISO and burning it with UNetBootin, only for the "Repair your PC" button to be just as useless as the Windows startup repair itself. Like, isn't the point in having the installer disk to replace files that the broken OS can't replace? Why doesn't it do any of that? It ALWAYS says, "Startup repair couldn't repair your PC".

    At this point I'm considering just reinstalling Windows altogether.

    Audio drivers randomly broke, I don't know how to roll back. HELP ASAP

    Hit Windows key+X/Device Manager. R-click Audio driver you want to repair. Follow screens to update via Windows Update. If there's NO driver, download from your mfr's site for your model.
