Hi Laptop not working,

1. Since when are you facing this issue?
2. Did you make any software or hardware changes to the computer recently?
3. Did you try rebooting your computer?
If not then I suggest you to reboot your computer and check if the issue gets fixed.

Method 1:
Check if the System Event Notification Service is running or not. To check for the services

 a. Click on Start
 b. In the start Search box type Services
 c. Right Click on - RUN AS ADMIN

Check if the below mentioned services has the mentioned status and start up type.

System Event Notification Service started Automatic

Also, check the dependency services that are required for System Restore Service to run.

To check that double click on the service and click on the dependency tab.

Method 2:

If that does not help, try this :

   a. Click on Start button.
   b. Type Cmd in the Start Search text box.
   c. Press Ctrl-Shift-Enter keyboard shortcut to run Command Prompt as Administrator. Allow elevation request.
   d. Type netsh winsock reset in the Command Prompt shell, and then press the Enter key.
   e. Restart the computer

Method 3:

Try performing SFC scan on the computer.

SFC /scannow is a super-useful command you can use in any Windows version. When the SFC (System File Checker) command is used with the /scannow switch, the tool will scan all of the important Windows files on your computer and replace them as necessary.

Missing and corrupt operating system files (like many DLL files) are arguably the biggest cause of major Windows issues. Considering that, plus the fact that SFC /scannow is completely automatic and very easy to use, the tool should usually be one of your first troubleshooting steps.
