Solved!

Laptop won`t start after Windows update

Microsoft Windows 8.1 (64-bit)

I have  HP laptop with Windows 8.1. 

After installing updates it won`t start up anymore. 

It happened before several times. I used sistem restore and it would fix the problem temporarily until next time for installing updates.

Now I can not even perform system restore. It says I do not have administrator account.

Please, help.

The process i am going to tell you is going to fix the problem but it  leaves some effects. All the update installed will be uninstalled to the version they had when you installed windows 8.1 and the programs in your Programs files(x86) NOT Programs files in C: Drive or the drive where windows is installed will be UNINSTALLED.The programs uninstalled will be listed on your desk top as Removed Applications.HTML . If you have no problems with the effects i have mentioned than procede as follows:

 

1.On boot tap F11 to enter Recovery.

2.On recovery go to Troubleshoot.

3.Then on troubleshoot click on Refresh your PC.

4.Wait for it to complete (takes about an hour)

5.Your System is restored. 🙂

 

 

Hope this helps 🙂
