ASUS Laptop won't start after factory reset

Sep 17, 2018
I factory reset my laptop after my son hijacked it and downloaded a bunch of games. It seemed to be going fine but when it was finished it shut off and when I turn it on the logo appears on a black screen with the spinning circle and it won't do anything else. I read a million different threads and the common answer seems to be turn it on and off until the automatic repair screen comes up... Well I've turned it on and off 100 times and I think it's safe to say that isn't going to work. Please help!

5. Select the USB flash drive as the media to create the tool.
6. Choose inserted drive from the list of available drives and click the Next option.
7. Wait until the process is completed and click on the Finish button to exit the tool creation application.
