    Having trouble downloading Windows 8.1


    While I was downloading Windows 8.1, I accidentally shut my laptop off (which it clearly states not to do during the download) and now I cant download 8.1

    It used to give me an error code but now it just says "cannot download windows 8.1" or "your windows 8.1 download could not be completed" in the windows store.

    I'm not a techy so English words would be much appreciated.

    pls halp.
