But if I had run into a problem, I would've restored from a backup. If you have an option to restore to factory settings, you can do that. If not, you'll need to contact Dell to get the necessary discs for a small fee.
When you've gotten your system back like you want it, I urge you to get yourself an external hard drive and a good 3rd party backup program. You can set it up to do everything automagically at the time and frequency of your choice. 1 TB external hard drives are about $50 these days and a really good FREE backup program is the Easeus Todo Backup Free. That can save you a lot of time and frustration the next time something like this happens. Sooner or later it happens to all computers for one reason or another.
Last Wednesday when I shut down my Dell laptop Microsoft installed 32 updates.
Yesterday morning when I started up the Dell Laptop a dialog box indicated that Windows could not start. I was given the option to do an automatic repair and restore. I selected this option.
After the operation was complete, I found that the hard drive had been formatted, and was completely blank. I lost EVERYTHING on my computer!
Am I the only one who had this experience?
