Please Guys I Need Help With My Pc, I Don't Know What Is Wrong With It by Mangekyo: 12:44am On Jul 06, 2021
I bought this pc and I've been using it for more than a year now. Windows 10, 4gb ram, core i5 etc.
Today, I was using it to play ninja storm. I was through with it and then turned it off. Later, I turned it on again and a notification popped up telling me that updates are available and that I should install blah blah..... As a real nigga, I mobilised quickly, turned on my Hotspot, connected that shit swiftly and then it began downloading. They were about 4 updates in number. Immediately those ones started, my avast anti-virus notified me also about an available update. I updated it asap.

Well I think I made a huge mistake here. It wasnt intentional ngl but I take the blame.
Immediately my avast completed downloading its update, it requested that I should restart. Well I restarted it forgetting that I was actually also downloading some windows update. I think one was done and was already showing "pending install".

Well the pc restarted and to my greatest surprise, each time it gets to a point in the boot up, it says my pc "couldn't restart or ran into a problem" .... Something like that.

It took me to "attempting repairs" in the second go and I spent hours there before it then took me back again asking for me to restore it to when it was working well. I'm currently stuck there. I've made up my mind to downgrade to windows 7 ultimate if I'm able to pull this one off.

Would be very grateful if anyone can give me a few tip. *cries hard*

Take it to a software engineer. The Hard drive will be formatted & windows will be reinstalled. All your files will be lost

Formatting won't work. Give it a try first
You have to format the hard drive because the windows has crashed completely.

Whatever problem you run into, Google always has a solution for you. Check online, there should be a way to roll back the updates

The windows is corrupted. You should load another windows on the hard drive. When loading a new windows,don't delete any thing,just load on top of the existing space on the hard drive. Your documents, pictures,movies, etc would still be intact.but u should lost every software u have installed.

You have to either format the hard disk or change it.

I doubt it, it is an OS thing, he can run chkdsk to fix it, formatting is a cop out option. unless the disk is bad

OP, follow this step. When installing a new windows on your hard drive, don't format it, just load it on top and when your done, all your files will be moved to windows.old under cdrive or so. Then you can now move then back to desktop.

Note: All the softwares you installed will be gone, you'll have to reinstall then all-over but your files will be intact

Most have told you the solutions above and moving forward, never ever update anything you don't know of just because Microsoft is prompting you to. The Microsoft are only prompting the update based on Windows 10 and not because it knows what laptop you're using. They focus on higher or recent build laptops and not what most of us are using here. Some having an old Kaby lake processor would see an update prompt and just update what they see not realizing the update was meant for a coffee lake, sky lake or ice lake processor.

OP, even if you ran all the updates successfully, there's a slight chance you may have encountered another issue such as lost sound, USB - C port not working, mouse not working. Most people just update their laptops which are meant for OS build 1908/1909 at best and when you see an update prompt, you guys jump on the click button to start updating to 20H2 or 21H1 Windows security; thereby changing your mouse driver that was running on synaptics before to Alps which is meant for recent generation laptops.

Some after a 20H2 upgrade would see the drop down slider when they press the power button for like 3 seconds with the message saying, slide to shut down; meanwhile, they're using a non-touch laptop. How then would that person slide down? If you and many out there wanna update, go to your manufacturers site to do so... It's there your type and model of your laptop can be determined and what needs to be added or updated; if the laptop brand you're using has a good support assistant.

NOTE: Just because I've said this doesn't mean anyone should just jump and update anything. Jump into there and change the BIOS only to brick the motherboard, you're OYO. Ask for guidance... It pays most times coz information is also expensive. My 1kobo.

Hlo I see others saying format and you will loose your files
you can still get your back your files intact
If you can format a PC then start the process
1)If u get to where you are to format and delete a partition don't delete any partition.. just click on NEXT and your files will be stored in a folder named "windows.old"
2)If u get to where you are to format and delete a partition and you click on next and it tells you that "windows can't be installed on this disk" then follow the next step
Step 1: remove your hard drive from the PC
Step 2: insert it in an external hard drive casin and connect it to another laptop
Step 3: Plug your HDD, Open CMD in administrator mode & type chkdsk /f e:
The 'e' is your drive letter
Wait for it to correct the hard drive and start from number 1

I don't think you need to go this far for that type of error, sometimes checkdisk or scannow usually fixes it
