Windows 10 install interrupted, lap top now won't boot
My sons HP laptop was installing windows 10 a couple of hours ago but was left without the charger in. Presumably the laptop ran out of power before the update finished because when he tried to start it it now doesn't boot; the HP logo appears as normal
for a few seconds but then the screen goes black, a white square flashes for a second then it goes black again. This sequence then repeats i.e. HP logo, black screen etc,. I guess it is trying to start but trips out, a bit like a car engine not catching. Any
Thank you for your reply. I installed Windows 10 onto a USB exactly as instructed and whilst the install menu pops up when tested on a working laptop, it doesn't appear on the screen of my sons laptop when he inserted it into the USB port. We tried re-starting
but to no avail. The laptop is still trying to start but appears to crash soon after the HP logo appears, then tries to start all over again in a continuous loop as before. Do you have any more suggestions; this is a 1 year old £350 laptop & is needed for
my son's University work.
Thank you for your advice, and sorry for delay in responding. I managed in the end to get into the start page from the BIOS and after a few false starts opted to reset. This seemed to work OK and windows 10 was installed OK with only a few programmes such
as Office & Chrome to re-install. Thanks again.
