    can you see your cursor in the middle of the screen if you can the click enter type in your password then press enter again, with a bit of luck your desktop should appear, if you mess up your password then re boot notice where the cursor is and re enter your password then press enter again
    Let us know please how you get on

    I had a very similar outcome from a failed Win10 upgrade attempt on an HP laptop running Win7 Home Premium. It was plugged in to the charger but it also failed at 30% and left the laptop in an unusable state. I had to order Recovery Media from HP and restore the laptop from scratch to get it fully working again.

    If yours is not a preinstalled PC, then you might be able to restore it by reinstalling from Win8.1 media -- but you'll need a working machine to download the ISO file and create a USB stick or DVD from that file.

    Mark is there any possible chance that a computer technician would be able to fix it, or rather would it be cheaper to get a computer technician to repair it?.... and it is a windows 8 preinstalled, but i upgraded to windows 8.1....
    honestly my issue is how they assume i wanted to update to windows 10 in the first place... i had clicked NO... and when i went to shutdown it said "update and shutdown"... i had no choice in the matter...

Hi Everyone, I'm stuck in an automatic repair loop. One suggestion has been to use a USB recovery disk but I can't create one now that I don't have access to Windows 8. Any suggestions?
