    PC cannot get past startup/reset/restore


    So after a recent Win 10 update my laptop became slower and slower until disk usage maxed out at 100%. I followed the usual troubleshooting tutorials, used the Media Creation tool which failed to reinstall Windows 10, ran chkdsk, scannow, and DISM restorehealth and the troubleshooter inside Settings. The troubleshooter for Windows Update managed to improve the disk usage issue, but I still cannot download the latest windows update.


    After running chkdsk for an entire day, where it became stuck at 100%, I can no longer get past startup. I have tried system restore, system reset (keeping files and wiping the entire drive), but it's just not working. At this point my computer is useless. It seems like the reset partially worked, since my font has been restored to factory size. But I still cannot boot up my laptop. It gets past the Lenovo logo and then goes to a black screen, where you can see the cursor if you move it and it occasionally changes to the blue loading circle. I have a Lenovo Flex that's about 3 years old.


    Would really appreciate some insight! Thanks.

    :)

    Reseting my PC

    Hi Parker,

    Recovery media is a backup tool that contains the Windows OS or your own system image backup to restore your system at any point. Learn more about it

    here
    .

    If you are still experiencing the issue, we suggest that you reset your computer from the advanced startup screen. To do this, follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings and select Update & security.
    • Choose Recovery then click Restart Now under
      Advanced startup.
    • Select Troubleshoot from the options.
    • Click Reset this PC.
    • Select whether you want to Keep your files or Remove everything.

    Let us know how it goes.

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.


    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".
