I need you help as I don't have a recovery CD because I updated Windows 8.1 (in my computer packaage) to Windows 10 .
Thanks in advance.

On a different computer download the media creation tool and create a bootable drive with Windows 10 on it.
Make sure to choose the same edition already installed on your PC. Once you have the pendrive with windows 10, boot with this drive from the computer which does not work. (You might need to change boot order in BIOS). Accept the licence agreement and in th Window where it says install, in the bottom left corner, there will be the option to repir this PC. Click on this and then go to advanced options, here perform "Startup repair" which should fix this problem.
Let me know,
