  1. Laptop Reset - There Was an Error?


    Hi, my son needs to sell his old laptop and has selected the factory reset. After about ~1 hour there's a message saying:

    "Reset this PC
    There was a problem resetting your PC. No changes were made"

    Any ideas please? My son is worried as he needs to sell his old laptop to get a replacement.

    Is it worth uninstalling everything already installed?

    Thanks!

    :)

    So is this thread closed or is mine no longer a priority question? I know it's only been a day, but there's been nothing since yesterday afternoon.
