  1. Factory reset


    So I was having an issue with my computer where when I signed it it said unable to sign into account and would ask me to sign out and back in the fix it but nothing was working I looked at so many YouTube videos and decided to do a whole factory reset and just remove everything and start fresh but after pressing the factory reset button my computer has just been turning on and off non stop for hours and I’m not sure what to do it’s the computer I use for college stuff so I’m very worried does anyone know if this is normal should I turn it off ?

    :)
