  1. Windows update. Broke computer


    i have an ASUS FX53VE model laptop and earlier tonight i received the notification to update windows 10 as per usual. I went to update my computer and it told me to restart my laptop as it usually does and so i went to restart my laptop and it has now gotten stuck on the ASUS startup screen. It does not have the usual spinning wheel that this screen usually has.


    i contacted ASUS support and he had me try the F9 tap repeatedly to get into BIOS and this did not work. I also tried holding F2 on startup and this also did nothing. I am wondering if there is anything else i can try to fix my laptop without having to send my laptop into them for the repair.

    :)

    Update Broke Computer Need Help!


    Windows 10 Upgrade
    According to this list, your PC isn't on Acer's approved list for Win 10. Could you check that?

    This is an older PC which came with Win 7. Have you ever clean installed Win 10 on it?

    • AMD Athlon II X2 255 Dual Core Processor
    • Windows 7 Professional
    • 2GB DDR3 RAM
    • 320GB HDD
    • DVD Rewriter
    • Integrated Graphics
    • PS.VB1E3.082

    We can only proceed step by step.

    So chkdsk and SFC /Scannow are ok. But any attempt to reset your PC or run DISM fails.

    Is this what you tried? I'm not 100% clear what the above means. Clean install or this procedure?
    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade - Windows 10 Forums

    If you tried this, it's possible it failed as you need (it seems) some 500Mb of unallocated space on your hard disk.

  3. Windows 10 update broke my computer?

    One of the possible reasons why your PC fails to boot into normal mode are broken components on the boot configuration data of your system. To isolate your concern, we suggest that you perform the following steps to trigger Safe Mode through the Windows
    Recovery Environment (WinRE) option. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • Improper shutdown process
    • Turn on your computer. When the Windows logo is visible, unplug the power source of your computer. Perform this step three times.
    • On the fourth time that you turn on your computer, just simply wait for the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) window to appear.
    • On the Choose an option screen, select Troubleshoot > Advanced options > Startup Settings and click Restart.
    • Once your computer restarts, you will see a list of options. Press the F4 key to start your computer in Safe Mode.

    We also recommend that you perform a system restore after booting in safe mode. This option takes your PC back to an earlier point in time. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore
    point was made. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • In the Search box, type Control Panel and press Enter.
    • On the upper-right window, under View by, click Category and select Large icons.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.
    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore > Next.
    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select Next > Finish.

    Let us know if the solution above works for you.
