Re: child completion

Why did you do that?

Anyway, I'd start all over with the Asus recommend way to go back to factory conditions. If no luck, use the Windows Media Creation Tool to install Windows 10 and add all necessary drivers fromt the Asus site yourself.

Not advised (registry edit.)

Talk/write to the person that advised that registry edit to see if they have a fix. Otherwise you are looking at what Kees noted.

There's one last chance.

Since this is Windows 10 (?) I would try booting my Windows 10 install and repair USB stick I created with Microsoft's Media Creation Kit that I answered with "for another PC."

Then I can try it's repair features.
