Hi,

 

After a Windows 10 Update my laptop refuses to startup.

 

It's an Aspire ES 15 and up till now it has worked well.

 

I have no startup disc as the software was pre-loaded

 

I do have a Desktop with the same Windows 10 but again no disc.

 

I have tried using the Reset but nothing happens.

 

The screen will open with the Aspire logo and Please Wait underneath

 

After a few minutes the screen goes black.

 

Can you help me or should I take it to the Computer Tech?

 

Regards

I had one of those laptops as well before I got my gaming PC, and I found that after a year or just before a year they start stuffing out.

 

My first one never let windows reinstall at all and just a pain in the a hole, and the one that I recently had burnt out.

Hi Dmccoy,

 

Can I download the files using another computer?

 

It has Windows 10  and is up to date and virus free.

 

Regards

Try to re install the the windows again because sometimes due to interruption in windows installation the window is not successfully installed. That is why you are unable to start the laptop.

Hi Dmccoy,

 

I downloaded the Rescue Disc from a Desktop and then loaded that into the laptop.

 

It took a while but finally booted up and running.

 

​I only use the computer once, maybe twice a day and all the programs I need are either on the original discs or the external drive.

 

The Rescue USB is now living within arms retch.

 

Thank you all for the help as I am a better photographer then computer operator.

 

Regards

You are welcome. I am not sure I understand is it working properly now or only if using the rescue disk now?
