    Windows 10 lets me neither start nor reset my PC


    I have an old Laptop from 2014, originally with Windows 8, I upgraded to Windows 10 when it was free. Now i wanted to reset the PC to sell it maybe. When I start it, the Display remains black. (After a short show of the Logo.) when I start it with F12/F8 to start the Windows Troubleshooter it works. The Troubleshooter says there is a Problem, restart your PC, then the display again remains black. When i want to reset it, the process starts, gets stuck at different % and afterwards says, there is a problem and I‘m back at the Menu where I started. I tried all different reset options like delete all or only delete preferences, but nothing changes. Anyone got an Idea, what I can do? Thanks in advance. Windows 10 lets me neither start nor reset my PC :)

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Windows 10 lets me neither start nor reset my PC

    Installing Windows 10 on New PC?

    I'm going to be building a new PC on Christmas and want to install Windows 10 on it. I have Windows 10 on my current PC, which I installed upgrading from 8.1 with the files on a USB. How do I go about installing a clean copy of Windows 10 on this new PC? I think I recall something about installing it once makes Microsoft recognize your hardware, but since this will be a PC I'm not sure what steps I need to take. Do I need to go 8.1 -> 10 or is there a method of going directly to 10?
